Nurse found guilty on drug charges


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A nurse who formerly worked at Raul-
erson Hospital was found guilty Monday
on drug possession charges. She was sen
tenced to five months in the Okeechobee
County Jail.
Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Mirman
handed down the county jail sentence de-
spite a plea agreement in which state pros-
ecutors and the public defender's office had
agreed to an 18-month prison sentence for
Lisa Lynn Husted.
Husted, 41, of Stuart, was arrested Feb.
16, 2009, on 16 counts of possession of mor-
phine and one count of grand theft. The li-
censed practical nurse was accused of steal-
ing dilaudid and morphine from the hospital
where she worked.
In his testimony before the court on July
27, the Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force
detective that arreststeHusted stated she ac-
tually stole 811 doses in a period of about
two months.
"She said she had a 20mg per day habit,"
the detective told the judge, "but the (Raul-
erson) pharmacist said he didn't believe she
could function or survive on that much."
Records also indicate that this is not Hus-
ted's first drug arrest and conviction.
According to the Martin County Sheriff's
Office, Husted -- then known as Lisa Lynn


Lee -- was arrested in 2000 and charged with
possession of oxycodone. Court records in-
dicate that she then successfully completed
drug court in Martin County.
Brian Melear, head of nursing at Rauler-
son, told Judge Mirman
that when she was hired by
the Okeechobee hospital in
2006 she was classified as
an "impaired practitioner." f
He went on to testify that
Husted had a substance
abuse problem prior to this
arrest and that Raulerson
Hospital "was aware of
that prior to hiring her." Lisa Lynn
When queried, Mr. Husted
Melear said he was not aware of any time
Husted was under the effects of drugs while
on duty. He went on to add that he was not
aware of any patients who missed their pre-
scribed doses due to the missing medicines.
In a phone interview Tuesday, July 28,
Mr. Melear said Husted was terminated in
December of 2008.
When asked if it was a common practice
to hire an "impaired practitioner" Mr. Melear
declined to comment.
According to the Department of Health's
(DOH) license verification web site, Husted's
LPN license was suspended May 12, 2009. A
DOH spokesperson said Tuesday because


her license has already been suspended,
Husted has most likely received a letter from
the DOH Board of Nursing that she is under
review by that board.
Husted apparently became addicted to
pain killers following a surgical procedure,
then kicked the habit and successfully com-
pleted drug court. She told Judge Mirman
that while working at Raulerson she re-
lapsed.
Judge Mirman said according to state
sentencing guidelines, Husted could have re-
ceived a sentence of 21.6 months in prison.
From the bench, Judge Mirmam told
Husted that there is avast difference in "buy-
ing drugs on the street and taking them from
the hospital where you work. Your conduct
inherently threatened the patients' care."
While he felt Husted "has a need for re-
habilitation," Judge Mirman said he must
also send a message to others in the health
care field.
"At it's core, it's still a drug possession
case," he said. "In a nutshell, I do think in-
carceration is warranted in this case."
Besides her jail time, Husted was also or-
dered to serve two years on drug offender
probation and pay court costs and fees to-
talling $2,207. She must also pay $1,000 in
restitution to Raulerson Hospital.
Husted will also receive credit for the nine
days she's already served in the county jail.


Lobster poaching is pretty pricey


It's known as "poaching," so if you think
taking over the bag limit, out-of-season lob-
sters, or lobsters from a sanctuary is OK,
you may want to talk to the people recently
penalized for doing just that.
During "Operation Freezer Burn" the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) assisted the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) Office for Law Enforcement and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the
search and arrest warrants of a group il-
legally harvesting lobsters from artificial
habitat placed in the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS). The artificial
habitats, referred to as "casitas" or "con-
dos," are perceived by lobsters as shelter,
and they congregate at the sites. This makes

for easy harvesting of the crustaceans.
In the end, six people were convicted
for the illegal harvest of 922 lobsters on
the opening day of Florida's commercial
lobster season in August 2008. They faced
additional charges after authorities found
approximately 1,700 pounds of wrung lob-
ster tail stockpiled that was harvested dur-
ing the 2008 closed season and intended
for sale after opening day. "Those who re-
spect and follow the rules want those who
are exhausting and abusing the resources
to pay," said Officer Robert Dube of the
FWC. "More than 1,700 pounds of lobster
tails represents more than 1,000 times the
legal bag limit for a mini-season sport dive.
If everybody took half that many lobsters,
there wouldn't be any left."


The six people were convicted this year
in federal court, each charged with harvest-
ing spiny lobster within the sanctuary from
illegally installed artificial habitat, exceed-
ing the bag limits, and illegally offering the
lobsters for commercial sale. The convict-
ed are David W Dreifort, 41, and Denise D.
Dreifort, 48, both of Cudjoe Key; Robert H.
Hammer, 46, of Miami; Sean N. Reyngoudt,
25, of Summerland Key; John R. Niles, 50,
of Labelle; and Michael Delph, 39, of Key
West.
Recreational and commercial harvest
seasons for spiny lobster in Florida are set
to reopen soon. The special, two-day spiny
lobster sport season comes first, July 29-30
this year, followed by the regular lobster
season Aug. 6-March 31.

EMS tax
In response to the article that was in
Sunday's paper, the firefighters that work for
the City of Okeechobee are EMTs. They are
all cross trained as Firefighter/EMTs, but for
the City residents to be able to receive ALS
(Advanced Life Support) medical treatment
they have to be trained as Paramedics. Para-
medics start IVs, give medications, and have
advanced air-
way skills. So
for the City of
Okeechobee
to do this it
C will start with
the purchas-
ing of ambu-
lances, medi-
cal supplies,
schooling, and
raises. The City
of Okeecho-
bee Firefighters are already highly underpaid
and an average raise from EMT to Paramed-
ic in Florida Fire Departments is $8,000. Oh
yeah, don't forget, more manpower will be
needed!
Some of our business owners at the city
council meeting say if they have to pay an
EMS tax and then have to pay one for their
business they are being double taxed. It was
explained that the taxes were broken up by
percentage of calls to residents and business
types. The theory of the two business own-
ers is that a business should not be taxed and
all the tax should be put on the residents.
The study done by the group shows there is
a small percentage of injuries at businesses
and they are taxed accordingly. Also on the
churches, if they don't pay any property tax,
who pays their garbage assessment? What
about the fire tax? Who other than the tax-
payers of Okeechobee pay? Nothing is free
in this world.


This EMT tax is just another way to
tax us to death, like they don't already get
enough of our hard earned money to spend
on other projects. (Agri-Civic Center/new
oversized Court House). Use some of that
fuel tax money or maybe even cut out some
of our city council or even county commis-
sioners' pay since most of them already own
businesses. And yes, I think the local busi-
ness owners should have to pay this EMT
Tax just as well as residents because they are
no different than the people that own mul-
tiple properties. Editor's note: The county
commissioners' salaries are set by the state.
Also by statute, the fuel taxes can only be
used on road and bridge expenses.
What about a hotel. If a guest at one
of our hotels needs EMS they have not paid
the EMS tax. Then should hotels, and camp
grounds have to pay an EMT tax for each
room or camp site?
The preacher at the Baptist church
spoke against the church paying the EMS fee
as the people that go to church there pay on
their tax bills. I can see his point, but if every
one wants an exemption won't the taxpay
ers be paying for a lot of freeloaders?
It makes sense to me that hotels and
RV parks should be charged the EMS tax
because the people who stay there are not
already paying tax elsewhere in the county
and yet those people may need the EMS ser-
vices.

Lawn mowers stolen
*The mowers are being stolen from peo-
ple who use them to make their living. They
are not cheap mowers. Most of the ones be-
ing stolen are zero turn radius or the Dixie
Chopper style mowers. Think about this:
You just bought a $3 or $4 thousand dollar
mower and haven't even made the first or
second payment on it and now you don't
have a job because your livelihood has been
stolen. I would hate for someone to come in
here and steal $50K worth of tools that are
used to support my family.
Everyone should be on the look out for
suspicious vehicles in their neighborhood,
driving around and looking the place over.
Get the vehicle descriptions and license tag
numbers and make a note of it and report it
to the cops. But don't try to play hero and
approach suspected bad guys yourselves.
But that information could certainly help if
there is a theft reported later.

These people aren't just stealing mow-
ers. They are stealing cars, bikes, boats,
ATVs, and your money by "hijacking" fore-
closed houses and renting them out to un-
suspecting people. And someone said the
country is getting better? What happens if
your medications are stolen? They cannot be
replaced without an act of Congress. I have
a service dog and leave him home because
he also makes a vicious watchdog. Don't
leave anything unsecured anymore. When I
park my utility trailer, I pull the hitch off the
truck and the towing mechanism is pulled
from the trailer so that no one can just hook-
up to it and drive off. These crooks are also
waiting on businesses to go out of business
and stealing the copper wiring and what-
ever else they can get their hands on. Every
neighbor in this town and county needs to
have someone they can trust to watch out
for their property while they are away. The
northerners came down last year and in
this area alone within a 1 block radius there
were about 10 homes broken into because
the crooks know when they leave. They are
stealing microwaves, TVs, fishing gear, tools,
anything they can get their hands on. Keep
your eyes open and if you see something
suspicious, call the law.
These days, people will steal anything.
Even if it is chained down, they'll cut the
chain. Certainly we should keep the doors
locked, don't leave valuables in plain site
and follow normal safety precautions. But
neighbors should also watch out for each
other. And the only way you can do that is to
actually get to know your neighbors. Walk
over and introduce yourself. Find out what
kind of vehicles they drive, so that you will
know when there is a strange car or truck in
the neighborhood.

'Stupid' remark
I cannot believe that our president
called the Cambridge police "stupid" with-
out bothering to get all the facts about the
incident in which a Harvard professor was
arrested. Just who looks "stupid" now?

Day of the Cowboy
I want to thank the Cattlemen's Asso-
ciation and the Main Street group for putting
on a great show at the Agri-Civic Center on
Saturday. The Day of the Cowboy was quite
a treat for the whole family and the best part
is that it was free to the public. We especially
enjoyed the mounted shooting event.

I very much enjoyed the Day of the
Cowboy events, but one thing really both-
ered me. When they brought out the flag
and played the National Anthem at the start
of the mounted shooting program, people
all around the arena stood up and showed
proper respect, with the exception of one
young woman who had three kids in tow.
She came in during the anthem, sat right
now in the front row and sat the kids down
beside her. I was not close enough to say
anything to her, but all I could think was
what a terrible example she was giving those
kids. How are kids supposed to learn proper
behavior if the parents are so self-absorbed?

Thefts
Yesterday two people I personally
know had outbuildings burglarized. All the
locks, alarms, dogs and window bars in the
world won't always stop a determined thief.
There are things you can do to protect your-
self. DOCUMENT: Use your digital or 35mm
camera take photos of the overall shed or
garage interior and then separate photos of
the most expensive items, ESPECIALLY THE
SERIAL NUMBERS or VIN NUMBERS. Take
a video of your stuff. Always have someone
ready to turn that item around so you can
document the serial number. If you have to
use a note pad and write it down -DO IT...
Then know where that list is. ALWAYS re-
port thefts. We cannot get back what we do
not know is stolen. Insure your stuff. Make
SURE your insurance company has insured
what you have now not what you had 7
years ago. Much of that stuff no longer ex-
ists. KNOW WHERE YOUR POLICY IS AND
THE NUMBER TO YOUR AGENT. Mine is
combined with my vehicle insurance and
my monthly insurance payment. If you rent,
get renter's insurance. I had it when I rented
and as of eight years ago it was relatively in-
expensive.

Mustangs
I can't believe someone would just
dump horses like that. About 4 months ago
I adopted a nice wild 3 year old that was go-

Chobee Steel Band drummers
If you were not part of the audience at
the Freshman Campus Auditorium Thursday
night, you missed a super performance by
a fine group of our county's young people.
Carol and I were amazed at the talent and
energy presented by the Chobee Steelers
Steel Drum Band and the Island Girls dance
troupe at the Steel Band Camp program put
on by Martha's House and the First Mission-
ary Baptist Church.
Being a member of the Children's Ser-
vices Council, which provided a grant to
partially fund the summer camp program, I
attended to show support for the program
and our youth. But, if the truth be known, I
wanted to go because I have been enchant-

ed with the uniquely beautiful sound of the
steel drum since listening to a street musi-
cian play the instrument in New York City's
Battery Park 20 years ago-so enchanted
that I have often considered buying a steel
drum and taking lessons. So I went to hear
the music.
The young musicians of the Chobee
Steelers explained the history of their instru-
ments to the audience. In the 1880s, the Af-
rican slaves of the Caribbean islands were
prohibited from drumming by the British
colonial government out of fear that they
communicated by code through the drum
sound. The forerunner to the steel drum,
or "pan" as it is called, was first made in
Trinidad in the 1930s from biscuit tins and
paint cans. After World War II ended in the
1940s and departing military left thousands
of 55-gallon oil drums, the island's slave de-


scendants discovered that the drums made a
unique sound when struck. Talented crafts-
men hammered the oil drums into multi-
noted percussion instruments that produce
the beautiful sound that has become the
hallmark of Caribbean calypso music.
But the history lesson was soon over-
shadowed by the skill of these young men
on their instruments. "Surprised" would not
come close to describing my reaction. I truly
expected these kids to plink out a few "Mary
Had a Little Lamb" or other piano recital-
type beginner songs that would excite their
parents and the rest of us would politely ap-
plaud our encouragement. After all, this is a
summer program that is only in its second
year. Not so! This band, without visible sheet
music, played lively, fascinating arrange-
ments of "Yellow Bird," "Island in the Sun,"
"Isn't She Lovely," and more. The crowd
was electrified. And the beautiful young Is-

land Girls completed the Caribbean carnival
atmosphere with their colorful costumes
and fluid dance movements. What a stirring
night of entertainment. And so refreshing to
see the goodness of Okeechobee's young
citizens in the spotlight. Great job everyone!
Ms. Shirlean Graham and the camp staff
have done a marvelous job with this pro-
gram where the youth are taught principles
for success along with their music and dance.
Thanks for all you do for our children. And
a special thanks to Mr. Carlton Lambert, a
professional steel drum pannist who taught
the young musicians this summer and who
performed beautiful solos for the crowd. My
only regret is that the program is only once
a year. Carol and I can hardly wait for next
year's performance.

ics include preparing for the hunt, hunting
techniques and safety, harvesting and pro-
cessing, caring for your alligator hide and
alligator hunting rules and regulations. Also,
people who do not have an alligator harvest
permit can attend if they want to learn what
hunting alligators is all about.
The class will be offered in Okeechobee

bee County Civic Center, 1750 U.S. Hwy 98

Margaret Hamblen, 32,

a stuffed teddy bear. An arrest report by
a task force deputy goes on to state that
a substance used to 'cut' meth was also
found in the bear's back.
"Methamphetamine is a much more
serious drug in my mind, and the law ac-

Robert Ivan Starnes, 39, S.R. 70 E.,
entered into a plea deal with the state and
was found guilty of driving under the influ-

in prison to be followed by two years of
house arrest. His driver's license will also
be suspended for 10 years. He was then

Coalition to help the hungry


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Coalition for the hungry, hurting
and homeless were the featured speaker at Tuesday's
Okeechobee Community Collaborative Council meet-
ing.
Lyle Fried talked about the origins of this new group,
and the problems they are trying to address in Okeecho-
bee.
Rural areas like Okeechobee often have trouble get-
ting the resources that they need and are in some cases
entitled to, Mr. Fried told the group.
"Funds go to larger municipalities because they have
a larger voice," he said.
Perhaps that is changing, however. Mr. Fried has
found government dollars that Okeechobee is eligible
for that might help people with their electric bills, and
with mortgage and rent payments.
At this point the group is signing up provider agen-
cies, and is looking for business people to help advise
them.
He noted $128,000 a year over the next three years
are available in grants to help the homeless and the less
fortunate. He hopes to partner with groups like Big Lake
Missions and the Lamb of God Outreach ministry to pro-

if -

vide food, and even classes for budgeting and nutrition.
He also noted Okeechobee is eligible for $50,000
matching grants through the United States Departmenl
of Agriculture. The program would be available for three
years, which would total $300,000.
Mr. Fried said there has been a huge increase in the
number of homeless people in Okeechobee in the past
five years. He suggested the numbers have doubled.
He noted the state has also changed the definition ol
the homeless which has also skewed the numbers.
Friend added that unemployment rates in Okeecho-
bee are probably higher than the state acknowledges
because those numbers often don't include migrant
workers, and the self employed.
In other business at the meeting, Facilitator Sharon
Vinson reported a great response for their school sup-
ply drive. She thanked Florida Power and Light, Glades
Electric Cooperative, and private donors and members
of the committee for providing items and cash this year.
The Okeechobee Children's Services Council will
also provide 200 book bags filled with school supplies
this year, she noted.
The group also will hold another Health and Safety
Expo next year. It will be held at the Okeechobee Agri-
Civic Center on Jan. 30. Last year close to 2,000 people
attended the event.
A "Tween' summit has been scheduled
for August 21 at Indian River State College in
Okeechobee. The summit is designed to have
parents and their children improve their com-
munication skills. The goal is also to reduce
teenage pregnancy rates and help teens make
better decisions.
School supplies will be handed out and
perhaps a free meal will be provided. The
event will be held from 6 until 8 p.m.
In other items, the Okeechobee County
Library announced it will reduce hours from
seven to five days per week. The library will
be closed on Sunday and Monday.
G4S services, the new operator at the Eck-
erd Youth Development Center, is teaching
their clients new vocational skills. They also
would like to take part in community proj-
ects.
The CCC group also learned there is a se-
vere shortage of infant child care services in
r S ^Okeechobee.
1s Suncoast Mental Health Services an-
nounced they now have a bilingual counselor
at Lakeshore Pediatrics that is able to assist
Hispanic families in Okeechobee.
The Children Homes Society announced
they are moving into a new office at 701 N.E.
Third Street, the new boardwalk building on
Taylor Creek.
