hunter" heritage will be hon-
ored and celebrated on Saturday,

the American Cowboy festivities,
including a free rodeo.
The Day of the Cowboy has
been celebrated throughout the Okeechobee News/File photo
country since 2005, when the Na- The Okeechobee Cattlemen's Association sponsored a cattle drive in downtown Okeechobee to
tional Day ofthe American Cowboy celebrate the National Day of the American Cowboy in 2008. This year's festivities start at 10 a.m.
Resolution was first passed by the on Saturday with a cattle drive from downtown Okeechobee to the Agri-Civic Center on State

The resolution-which must be reintro-
duced each year until it is officially desig-
nated a national day of observance-passed
again in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
The local celebration is sponsored by

A Kentucky man supposedly in South

extended for quite some time following his
arrest on a felony drug charge.
Michael E. Rainey, 42,
Grimes Batterton Road,
Paris, Ky., was arrested
Thursday, July 16, on
a charge of trafficking
in oxycodone. He was
booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail under a
bond of $250,000.
Rainey was stopped Michael E.
on the Florida Turnpike Rainey
by the Okeechobee Nar-

not working.
Rainey told a task force detective that
he and his wife had been on a three-day

eye contact and kept putting his hands in
his pockets, stated the detective's arrest
report.
The detective became suspicious and
asked Rainey for permission to search his
person. During that search the male detec-
tive felt a "large bulge" in the man's groin
area. After being asked about the bulge,
Rainey reportedly pulled out the front of
his shorts and the detective saw a condom
fastened with a safety pin to the man's un-
derwear.
Inside the condom the detective found
732, 30 mg oxycodone pills that weighed
87.7 grams, stated the report.
According to the detective, Rainey said
he will take "several for personal use and
sell the rest on the streets." He allegedly
told the detective that he gets $25 per pill
in his home state.
The detective went on to state that Rain-
ey did not have a prescription for the pills.
Oxycodone is a schedule 11 narcotic.

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!

Fire/Rescue
The priorities in this country are so
messed up! Why do the people that teach,
help and protect people get paid the least?
Doesn't make any sense! It takes a special,
smart, caring person to be a teacher, police
officer, firefighter or even nurse!
Okee Fire Rescue is understaffed, cov-
ers an area 30 miles long and has a lot of
outdated equipment. Okeechobee County
needs additional fire/medical personnel
and stations. Volunteer fire stations are not
staffed. Volunteers respond from home, if
and when they are available, lengthening
to all critical response time. Staffed stations
are a better choice, if financing is available.
Volunteers are very good for additional per-
sonnel. The volunteer unit on the Viking no
longer exists because the personnel there re-
fused to take the state mandated "minimum
standards for fire fighting" training. It was a
case of the tail wanting to wag the dog. They
cited a lack of time with their jobs, families,
etc, and that is understandable. Volunteer-
ing is very time consuming. Add schooling
and it takes even more time. The volunteer
unit at Fort Drum has a few volunteers. They
do what they can, with what they have. The
unit is in dire need of more Volunteers. If you
have the time, please check them out. They
can use the help. Godspeed to the firefight-
ers, volunteer firefighters, police and sher-
iff's deputies who help keep us safe. Until
we have a bigger tax base we are not going
to get the services the coastal counties have.
Simply put, no money, no services.
It seems to me that the city and the
county are trying to pass this new EMS as-
sessment without letting the voters have a
chance to talk about it and give their view-
points. I know the budgets are tight, but
how about having a public meeting in the
evening when the working folks can attend?
I can't afford to take off work to go to acoun-
ty meeting. I need every hour of wages.


I know people don't want to see more
taxes. We are all already struggling to pay the
bills we have. But there is less tax revenue
because property values dropped. There is
less gas tax coming in because people are
driving less, trying to conserve gasoline.
There is less revenue coming in from the
landfill because there is more competition
from other landfills and because people are
not so quick to throw things away as they
don't have money to buy new. So with less
revenue, the county either has to come up
with new revenue sources or else cut back
on services. I would rather pay the $90 or
$100 a year than have the emergency medi-
cal services cut. It's like insurance. You don't
want to ever have to use it, but you sure
want it there when you do have to use it.

Tax Assessments
The Letter to the Editor by Tom Murphy
in Sunday's July 19, edition was terrific and
hit the nail right on the head. If the new as-
sessment passes, some people need to re-
think the way they have been voting, but the
important thing is to get the ones we now
have out of there. All this bunch has done
is impose more taxes on us. Remember the
gas tax, the one that was supposed to im-
prove our roads? Yeah, right. The one office
that they need to leave alone is the Sheriff's
Office. The others could go on a four-day
work week. Get rid of county code enforce-
ment, they aren't doing anything anyway.
Just drive through any subdivision and look
around.

Law enforcement
All officers of the law should have ran-
dom drug testing and psychological testing
once a year by an outside source. Which
would give the sheriff the ability to make de-
cisions as to if the officer is fit to carry out the
duties of protect and serve.
This is to the law enforcement officer
who passed my vehicle in a "no passing
zone" on State Road 70. If it was an emer-
gency, had you put on your flashing lights,
I would have pulled my vehicle over so you
could get by. If it's not an emergency, it re-
ally does not look good for your department
when you don't follow the laws that you are
to enforce. Whether you are on duty or not,
when you are driving a marked unit, every-
thing you do reflects on the department.

Taxes
We can have additional services with-
out raising home owner taxes, or adding
taxes with new names such as the pro-
posed EMS Tax. It's just another example
of the local government over spending and
then wanting to cover it with a bright and
shiny newly named TAX. Every time a com-
mercial or industrial venture seeks to enter
the city or county it is discouraged by the lo-
cal governments.


Sheriff's office
I am sick and tired of all of the gossip
about the sheriff's department. The FDLE is
investigating and when they are finished and
the report is released, we will know what
happened. In the meantime, all the gossip
is just hurting the department and the com-
munity.

Day of the Cowboy
*I want to thank Main
Street and the Cattle-
men for going ahead
with plans for the
free celebration
of the Day of the
Cowboy. In this
tight economy, it's
great to have a free
public event to enjoy
with the whole family. We are so look-
ing forward to going to the celebration on
Saturday.

Atheists sue to keep "In God
We Trust" off Visitor Center
This nation was built on the founda-
tion of the Almighty GOD. Why do you think
America has been so blessed all these years?
Do not worry though, those who do not
believe are now seeing an America that is
getting farther and farther away from what
made it strong. You reap what you sow.
Separation between religion and gov-
ernment has nothing to do with God. God
has no religion. This country was built by
men and women that believed and had faith
in a God. Period.
I hope that on the day Jesus appears
in the heavens that I am surrounded by a
bunch of people who do not believe in Him
or the Almighty Father. I would like to see
their reaction.

The separation of church and state is
one of the foundations of this country that
has made us the strong nation we are today.
The pilgrims came here to escape a church

separate church from state. Iran for one. All
western countries have separated church
from state, because if they didn't they would
have been left behind.

2. To make use of existing facilities
3. To achieve economies of scale
4. To eliminate service duplication.
5. To organize services in the most logical
way, rather than have them constrained by
jurisdictional or area limits.
6. To take politics out of service delivery
7. To meet citizen demands.
Determining Fair Share of fire service
costs for written contracts:
1. Fire Department operating costs
2. Money paid to support pensions
3. Cost of apparatus and major equip-
ment depreciated over a specific time pe-
riod
4. Cost of the physical plant over a given
time
5. Percentage of fire department use by
the contracting municipality over a given
time period
6. Percentages of assessed valuation of
the contracting municipality to the total as-
sessed valuation of all areas protecting.
Regional consolidation provides the po-
tential advantages of:
1. Centralizing fire department manage-
ment and reducing administrative costs
2. Centralizing the dispatching and com-
munication network and other fire depart-
ment support services such as maintenance
and training
3. Improving fire service capabilities be-
cause of increased resources and special-
ized equipment
4. Unifying fire prevention codes
5. Reducing insurance premiums be-
cause of improvements in the ISO rating.
The primary disadvantage of consolida-
tion is the perceived loss of local control,
and this has been the reason why consolida-
tion is frequently opposed by individual de-
partments as well as by local politicians.

Letter to the Editor

Did you know?
I recently learned that teachers can make
between one and four million dollars a year
... that's right, a year ... in Japan. Teach-
ers are paid astronomical figures because
education is the most important influential
structure on the people. Their earnings are
based on what they teach and at what grade
level. To the Japanese people you can never
stop learning enough. They are creative, in-
ventive, and passionate about learning and
teaching.
And get this, parents pray outside the
school yard gates for hours! The students
pray before classes. They have very little
disruptions from unruly students ... it is not
tolerated ... and most students are "A" stu-
dents.
Another thing the Japanese government
does is totally support their law enforce-
ment, fire and rescue agencies, hospitals
and doctors. To them these are extremely
important facets of life, very necessary. They
have very little crime because their law men
are paid well and they protect the people
and their properties because of it. As a re-
sult people feel safe. They don't hide in their
homes. Children play outdoors.
This does not mean there is no crime in
Japan. Quite the contrary, they have their
share. They have their slums, drug lords,
prostitution, etc., just not as rampant as
here and other countries. When they arrest
someone for any of these crimes they don't
get a slap on the wrist. They get it good the


first time around. And you don't want to kill
someone-instant death penalty.
Make you stop and think yet? We need to
put prayer back in our schools!
We need to fully support our law enforce-
ment agencies! We need to quit cutting bud-
gets on all the important things that make a
difference in our society!
Our lawmen put their lives on the line ev-
ery day! PAY THEM WHAT THEY DESERVE
FOR THAT DEDICATION!
Our teachers put in years of learning to
teach better ways of living to their students!
PAY THEM WHAT THEY DESERVE FOR
THEIR DEDICATION!
What is it going to take to wake this
country up?
Commissioners and Councilmen (not all
of you) empty your fat pockets and put that
money into the communitywhere it belongs.
Never mind bigger and newer courthouses,
we won't need them if you beef up the law.
And forget about that wasteful Agri-Civic
Center, that multi-purpose useless dinosaur
you created. Stop inventing ways to spend
hard earned tax dollars on things that serve
no useful purpose and give that money to
the schools and the sheriff's department and
the city police.
Parents, get your kids into a God fearing
church and yourself, too. Quit letting your
child tell you what to do and you take con-
trol.
Our country is becoming weaker and
weaker. Strength is not physical muscle. It
is brains and all other countries are training

Isaiah 30:1 says" Woe to the rebellious
children, SAITH THE LORD, that take coun-
sel, but not of me; and that cover with a cov-
ering, but not of my spirit, that they may add
sin to sin."
Jeremiah 29:11 says," For I know the
thoughts that I think toward you, SAITH THE
LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to
give you an expected end."
29:12 "Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye
shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hear-
ken unto you."
29:13 And ye shall seek Me and find ME,
WHEN YE SHALL SEARCH FOR ME WITH
ALL YOUR HEART."
Are you ready? Are you ready to bring this
country back to the beliefs it was founded
on? Are you ready to let our peace officers
do their jobs with a better payroll to support
them and buy the equipment they need?
Are you ready to let our teachers know how
much they are worth and appreciated for all
they do with your children, to give them a
better payroll and buy what they need to do
their jobs? Are you ready to give it all back to
GOD? Don't you know, it's all His anyway?
Love your neighbor as you love yourself ...
as it is given to you.
Treat others as you want to be treated.
What you put out is what you get back.
Think about and do something about.
Peace and Love,
Jesus loves you and so do I.

Okeechobee News
The Firestix softball program celebrated
their first ever state championship in July.
The league's 18 and under team won the
2009 Class B State Championships of the
Treasure Coast in a tournament held at San-
dhill Crane Park in Port St. Lucie.
Okeechobee cruised through the tourna-
ment undefeated, and were pushed to extra
innings in only one contest.
"This championship got personal for
some of the girls," Coach Darryl Allen noted,
"I couldn't have asked for a better team. We
jelled, played great defense, and made every
play."
Tyrone Smith and Kelley Smiley assisted
Allen in coaching the squad.
Okeechobee won their opener, 5 2 over
Palm Beach Pride. Ashtyn Brown had two
hits and a run scored. Shelby Bullis of South
Fork added a hit and an RBI. Shawnee
Marchu had two hits and two runs batted
in. Victoria Blevins had one hit, a run and a
sacrifice. Mary Huff was the winning pitcher
with seven strong innings.
Okeechobee defeated South Florida Con-
tenders of Dade County in the second round,
7-0. Bullis had two hits, Shawnee Marchu
drove in two runs, and Huff had two hits,
two runs scored, and three runs batted in.
Huff again picked up the win.
In day two of the tournament, Okeecho-
bee defeated the South Florida Contenders
again 4-3 in extra innings.
Blevins had two hits, and Huff had two
hits and two runs batted in. Lauren Throop
had an RBI base hit as well. Okeechobee
won the game on a passed ball in extra in-
nings.
Okeechobee matched up again with
Palm Beach Pride in the winner's bracket


and won 5-0. Huff and Shannon Marchu had
two runs batted in. Blevins scored two runs.
Huff was once again the winning pitcher
with a complete game shutout.
In the semifinals Okeechobee defeated
the Space Coast Stars 2-1. Leanne Cotton
had a two run double to provide the win-
ning runs.
In the finals, Okeechobee defeated the
Space Coast Stars, 4-1. Ashtyn Brown and
Cotton both had two run doubles.
The 12 year olds are coached by Mark
Ward, Dylan Tedders, and Shawn Hays.
Key members of the team include pitchers
Breanne Billie, Delaney Osceola, Kaylen Ful-
ford, Jessica Drawdy and Gloria Suarez. Top
defenders include Carissa Lecota at short-
stop, Khrysta Herndon at 2B, and Bethany
Stuart at 3B.
Coach Mark Ward said he has been very
pleased with the pitching and defense of his
team.
They have played 25 games and have
finished 13-12 this year. The team qualified
for the World Series over July 4th weekend
when they defeated the Miami Stringray at
Langford Park in Jensen Beach.
The 10 and under team missed out on
qualifying for the World Series.
They finished r in the state of 37 sanc-
tioned teams. Coach Kim Hargraves said the
girls have travelled between Vero Beach and
Fort Lauderdale since April and have done
an incredible job improving their softball
skills.
Members of the team include Kelli Chap-
man, Brittani Mellette, Raylee Coleman,
Megan Hargraves, Tamea Allen, Alix Blaken-
ship, Carrie Wharin, Bailie Shurley, Jordan
Lawlis, Mikaela Queen, and Michaela My-
ers. Coaches are Kim Hargraves, Heather
Stillians, Mike Wharin, and Judd Shurley.

Workshop to discuss EMS assessment plan


$74 per dwelling fee
proposed, businesses
and churches would
also be taxed

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
As a means of bolstering their cash short
budget Okeechobee County Commissioners
are considering an EMS assessment to be
paid by both city and county residents.
Yet another public workshop with city
councilmen and county commissioners
discussing the proposed assessment will
be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 29 at the
Health Department auditorium. Unlike the
fire assessment, which is currently paid only
by those living outside the city limits, county
officials are proposing that city residents be
included in the EMS assessment. Other op-
tions for city residents, including operating
their own ambulance service or contracting
with a private ambulance company have not
been explored.
The way the assessment is currently pro-
posed, churches as well as residences, and
businesses would be assessed. Churches
outside the city limits currently pay the fire
assessment and at least one church within


the city limits pays the garbage assessment.
One of the objections that has been
raised to an EMS assessment is it is based
on the type and size of a structure. While
structures generate fire calls, people gener-
ate ambulance calls, some say.
Residents of Okeechobee County would
have to pay an EMS assessment for their resi-
dence. Business owners would have to pay
an EMS assessment for their business which
would cover their employees and custom-
ers. Most of those employees and custom-
ers would be county residents who had also
paid an EMS assessment for their residences.
The same could be said for churches where
many attendees would be paying an EMS as-
sessment for their residence as well as for
their church.
At their joint workshop meeting on July
12, Lee Evett, vice president of Wildan Fi-
nancial Services, presented commissioners
and councilmen with an 18-page document
that detailed the methodology for arriving at
the proposed assessment.
The entire assessment methodology is
based on benefit to properties. The method
of assessment uses a weighted apportion-
ment of the costs that equates each prop-
erty's use and size to that of other properties
and the demand for services associated with
the various types of properties.


In deriving the proposed assessment
rate the EMS calls by Okeechobee County/
Fire for calendar years 2007 and 2008 were
analyzed. During those two years there were
6,672 EMS calls that could be related to vari-
ous property categories. Another 1,325 calls
were identified as non-property calls, such
as automobile accidents.
The calls were further broken down
into categories. There were 5,224 calls to
residences or 65.3 percent of the total calls.
There were 38 calls or 0.5 percent of the
total for hotel/motel RV parks. Commercial
properties contributed 17.4 percent of the
total or 1,393 calls. Industrial/warehouse
properties generated 18 calls or 0.2 percent
of the total. The 1,325 non-property related
calls, amounting to 1.6 percent of the total,
were not used in assessment calculations.
The total funding requirements for EMS
were then divided among these categories.
Individual EMS costs were apportioned to
each parcel based on its use.
Under the proposed assessment schedule
residential properties would be assessed $74
per dwelling unit for 2009/10. This would
generate $1,172,488. Hotel/motel/RV par-
cels would be assessed $2 per room/space
for 2009/10, generating $7,024. Commer-
cial properties would be assessed accord-
ing to square footage and would generate
$312,749. Industrial and warehouse prop-
erties would also be assessed according to
area but at a lower rate, generating $4,035.

Voice



Counts.

"In a democracy, the highest
office is that of citizens."
- US Supreme Court Justice
Felix Frankfurter.

We agree. Yet too many
citizens feel powerless to
influence the flow of
events.

We give people a voice. Our
Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an
extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of
the American Revolution.

How are we doing?

PUBLIC NOTICE
Beginning (On or About) June 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009
IN COMPLIANCE WITH Federal Air Regulations of the Federal Aviation Agency, Public Notice is hereby given
that the Buckhead Ridge Mosquito Control District of Buckhead Ridge, Glades County, Florida has authorized
Clarke Environmental Mosquito Management, Inc. to apply insecticides approved and labeled for this use over
the congested areas of the community known as Buckhead Ridge by low flying aircraft at altitudes under 500
feet from time to time through the mosquito season of 2009.
Populations of both potential disease bearing and pest mosquitoes will be surpressed by spray flights with-
in the area. All such flights will be made in the public interest at such times as are considered necessary and
under such conditions as are considered effective and safe for the purpose of providing comfort and public
health protection for residents.
Spray flights will be made over congested areas which ordinarily cannot be adequately treated for the sup-
pression of adult mosquitoes with ground equipment
Additional public notice maybe given via local newspapers and/or radio stations as needed. Additional infor-
mation is available by calling your Buckhead Head Ridge Mosquito Control District at 763-7840. Please leave
your name, address and phone number so that the Director or a Commissioner can return your call and address
your concerns.
Buckhead Ridge Mosquito Control District
Your Commissioners: Al Crank, Chairmain, Sally Edwards, Sec. and Karen Werne, Treas.
Director: Charlie Norris

Dixie youth tournaments continue


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Dixie Youth 14-year old
team opened up with a tough opponent,
Poinciana, Saturday, and fell 6-3.
Jack Radebaugh and Chuck Shannon
both had RBI doubles. A bases loaded walk
to Trenton Moutschka scored Okeechobee's
third run.
David Coleman had a good day at the
plate with two hits. Shannon had two hits
and also scored a run.
Poinciana got a great pitching per-
formance from Jari Alvarez. He shutout
Okeechobee until he left the game due to
pitch counts in the fourth inning. He struck
out nine batters. When he left the game,
Poinciana enjoyed a 5-0 lead.
At the plate Poinciana scored one run in
the first on a ground out by Mark Valdez, two
runs in the third thanks to an RBI single by
Chris Figueroa, and two more in the third
thanks to an RBI double by Kevin Quino-
nes and an RBI single by Jose Maldonado.
Alvarez's RBI single made it 6-0 after four
innings.
Billy Childers gave up six runs in four in-

Safety first



in the pool


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News

So far this summer has been safe for
swimmers in Okeechobee, but City Fire Chief
Herb Smith said people should not get com-
placent and they should adhere to city codes
when it comes to back yard pools.
"It's been a pretty good year so far. Usu-
ally at the year goes on people get relaxed
and complacent, and they slack up on safety,
he stated.
Chief Smith said it looks like the economy
has helped slow down on the number of
back yard above ground pools.
Smith said state and local law requires
barriers for above ground pools. He ex-
plained that most people leave ladders on
the pool. The outside of the pool is a barrier,
but if you leave the ladder in, the small child
can climb up and drown, "That's the biggest
problem we have. They leave it there when
their not home and they create a hazard."
Chief Smith said people should also keep
the gates to their backyard closed and locked
if possible when they are not at home. He
said that in ground pools are also required to
have safety barriers.

Firemen win big at 'Olympics'


Okeechobee News/Charles Murphy
Lalo Rodriguez built on his success last year as he took home seven medals
from the Firefighters Olympics.


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Lalo Rodriguez has a unique set of skills
if you judge what he accomplished this year
at the Florida Firemen's Olympics in Fort My-
ers.
The City firefighter brought home three
gold medals, two silvers and two bronze,
building on the five he brought home last
year.
Rodriguez won gold in arm wrestling in
the under 188-200 pound weight class divi-
sion, another gold in team event rifle as he
competed with Fire Chief Herb Smith, a sil-
ver in pistol sharp shooter, a silver in marks-
men for rifle, and a bronze for both horse
shoes and softball.
"I'm just happy to be able to go and enjoy
myself and help the department. I'm look-
ing forward to doing it next year," Rodriguez
said, adding that he wants to bring home
eight medals next year.
Chief Smith said Rodriguez did a great
job in the shooting competitions. He stated
the size of the targets were no bigger than a
half dollar.
"He kind of carried me," he joked.
Rodriguez said his goal is to attend the
national competition. This year it is expected
to be held in West Palm Beach in Novem-
ber. He noted some other local firefighters
are training with him and want to get into
the competition.
Rodriguez runs, lifts weights, and works


out nearly every day. He noted he doesn't
just do it to compete well in sports, but it
also helps him with his career. He credits his
success as a marksman to living in Okeecho-
bee. "Living in Okeechobee all my life, hunt-
ing, was plenty of practice for me."
Rodriguez also intends to attend some
arm wrestling competitions across the state.
He thinks he'll be able to compete with the
best. "It was pretty competitive," he said.
"There are a lot of big guys in these events. I
enjoyed seeing them. I'm training with some
guys in Martin County, and will attend some
paid events for arm wrestling."
