Plane lands safely


with no landing gear


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
No one was injured when a small air-
plane's landing gear malfunctioned as it
was landing at the Okeechobee Count Air-
port Wednesday, Sept. 23.
The Piper PA 32 Lance was being pi-
loted by Luciano Baquero of Odessa, who
said he had no notice from the plane's
warning system that the landing gear was
not engaged when he tried to land around
12:33 p.m. Wednesday.
Detective Susan Morrison, of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO), was on U.S. 98 N. near Shenani-
gan's when she first saw the plane in the
area of the Okeechobee County Civic Cen-
ter.
"It looked like he was coming down
pretty quick to me," she said Thursday af-
ternoon. "He had no landing gear down
whatsoever."
The detective then contacted an OCSO
dispatcher and asked them to contact the
airport. When the dispatcher called the
airport but didn't get an answer, a deputy


Woman accused of

Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee woman has been arrested
and charged with getting narcotics from two
different doctors, who are located in two dif-
ferent cities.
Christine S. Pohl, 45, S.E. 33rd Terrace, was
arrested Thursday, Sept. 24, and charged with
seven counts of obtaining a prescription by
fraud. She was booked into the Okeechobee
County Jail under a bond of $28,000.
Pohlwas arrested earlyThursday by Deputy
Howard Pickering, of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO), on an Okeechobee
County warrant.
According to a probable cause affidavit,
Pohl would reportedly go to a Loxahatchee
doctor to get a prescription and a few days
later she would go to another doctor in West
Palm Beach and get another prescription for


OCSO will buy

The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of-
fice will hold a gun buy-back program
Saturday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. until noon
at the Douglas Brown School, 700 block
of N.E. 16th Ave. Deputies will be on hand
to pay $50 cash for a handgun and up to
$100 for certain types of assault weapons.
All guns must be in operating condi-
tion. All purchases will be on a no-ques-

was sent to the scene. As it turned out, air-
port personnel was outside waiting for the
plane.
A report by OCSO Deputy Matt Craw-
ford states the Mr. Baquero was landing his
plane from west to east and, from what he
knew, the landing gear was engaged when
he started his final approach.
When the plane made contact with the
runway Mr. Baquero thought that a tire had
deflated. The pilot reportedly told the depu-
ty that when he finally realized the landing
gear was not engaged it was too late, so he
lowered the plane slowly onto the runway
... and hoped for the best."
The flight gear alarm did not sound until
after the plane had stopped.
Deputy Crawford said the plane suffered
"... a lot of cosmetic damage and would
need a new prop." He estimated the dam-
age to be between $10,000 and $40,000.
Passengers in the plane with Mr. Ba-
quero were his wife, Veronica, and Roland
Albert. The deputy said Mr. Baquero had a
valid pilot's license that was issued Jan. 23,
2009, by the Federal Aviation Administra-
tion (FAA).

the same drugs. She would then go to two
different pharmacies to have the prescriptions
filled.
Statements from the
doctors indicate that neither
knew Pohl was seeing an-
other doctor.
The affidavit also stated
that Pohl had signed a con-
tract with the Loxahatchee
physician in 2003 that was
hristine S. valid until May 2009. Basi-
Christine S. cally, the contract stipulates
that the patient cannot see
another physician for the purpose of obtain-
ing the same, or similar, narcotics.
The affidavit indicates that during the
course of the investigation by the Okeechobee
Narcotics Task Force, Pohl received prescrip-
tions for roxicodone, oxycontin, carisoprodol
and xanax.

Witness: Bicyclist hit by pickup truck


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A bicyclist who was struck by a hit-and-
run driver last weekend is still in a Fort Pierce
hospital but has been taken off life support,
said a local deputy.
Deputy John Ashby, of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), said Thurs-
day, Sept. 24, that the bicyclist is now listed
in stable condition at Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center.
Mario Alvarez, 34, was riding his 2009 21-
speed Mongoose bike along S.E. 40th Ave.
on Saturday, Sept. 19, when he was struck
from behind by a vehicle around 4 a.m.
Mr. Alvarez was on his way home and
was riding on the shoulder of the road when
he was hit, said Deputy Ashby. The man lives
on S.E. 38th Ave.
The OCSO deputy said Thursday that a
witness has since come forward and said
Mr. Alvarez was hit by a dark colored pickup
truck that was driven by a white male. The
witness apparently told the deputy that the
truck had a chrome grill, was an extended
cab model and had dark tint on the win-
dows.


The witness, stated the deputy, did not
know the make of the vehicle.
Deputy Ashby said the driver was wear-
ing blue jeans and cowboy boots. He was
described as being around 5-foot-10-inches
tall and weighing an estimated 180 pounds.
According to the deputy, the witness said
the man got out of his truck after hitting Mr.
Alvarez and walked toward the back of his
vehicle as if he was going to the aid of the
bicyclist. But he turned around, got back in
his truck and drove away in a southerly di-
rection.
Deputy Ashby said Mr. Alvarez doesn't
know what happened.
Mr. Alvarez was wearing a Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation (FDOT)-approved re-
flective vest, said the deputy, and the man's
bike was equipped with reflectors.
If anyone has any information about this
incident, they are asked to contact Deputy
John Ashby at the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office, 863-763-3117. Or, they can
remain anonymous by calling the local tips
line at 863-763-5742.

ACORN scandal
The mainstream media doesn't inves-
tigate anything. They just gloss over the im-
portant issues if they make the Democrats
and their affiliates look bad. If it had not been
for Fox News we would have only heard one
news report from each news source and
then just like they did it was dropped and
never mentioned again until Fox called them
on it. While saying no one reported on the
story, they did get the story up front where
it needed to be. I don't approve of lying but
I do approve of investigative reporting and
I do believe Fox uncovers many things we
should know about. People should be livid
when things like this come out and the lib-
eral news media glosses over it.
People are getting quite livid about it,
the Republicans, after seeing an expose' of
something they have really known all along,
and the Democrats for having it exposed. I
wouldn't doubt that Republicans may be a
little upset, also, over Obama's statements
during the weekend interview that Acorn's
problems are small compared to the other
things he has to deal with now. I hope they
keep digging, enough to expose his ef-
forts in using the taxpayers money to fund
these criminal ne'er do wells. He has used
tax money to bail out the banks, which he
encouraged to make loans to people who
couldn't possibly repay them.
While watching Fox tonight it occurred
to me that without Fox there would be some
things that we would never know. But im-
portantly, just think what the Obama admin-
istration would be able to get away with.
I am glad that we have Fox so that we
can get all the news, not just what the ad-
ministration wants us to know.

Kidnapping
The woman who was kidnapped cer-
tainly kept her wits about her. She convinced
the guy to let her go to the bathroom at a con-
venience store, and then borrowed a phone
from another woman to call the cops, and
then locked herself in the bathroom until the
cops arrived. Because she didn't panic, she
managed to control the situation.
The recent kidnapping reportedly was
part of an ongoing domestic case. This just
goes to show that all a restraining order does
is give the cops something to arrest the guy
for when he violates it. It doesn't protect a
woman from being grabbed.


Water rates
I think it stinks that the Okeechobee
Utility Authority wants to raise our rates and
the water isn't even fit to drink. In fact the
water stinks too.
I think most people in Okeechobee are
trying to live on less money than they did a
year or two years ago. People have lost their
jobs. Some have taken cuts in their pay. And
yet the OUA thinks we can all afford to pay
them more money for water plus we buy
bottled water to drink. Something is very
wrong here. OUA needs to find a way to
charge less, not more.
The problem I have with OUA is that
we have to pay for water we don't even use.
If we are gone for a month or six months
and use absolutely no water we still have a
water bill.


Taxes
Now that the debates are over for this
year and the commission has made their de-
cision about the EMS assessment, they need
to start discussing how they will fund it in
the future. They have one year before this
will come up again. People are not happy
about paying more taxes. The city and the
county need more revenue. They need to
work on ways to bring in more money. A
big problem is the lack of industry here. The
officials need to do more to expand the tax
base instead of expecting residential hom-
eowners to pay for everything.
I think the property appraisers office
needs to go through the agriculture exemp-
tions with a fine tooth comb and make sure
only those who are really farmers and ranch-
ers receive them. The exemptions are sup-
posed to be only for those properties being
used primarily for agriculture.

Healthy Start Baby Shower
The Healthy Start Coalition held its bi-
annual Educational Baby Shower on Fri-
day, Sept. 18, at the American Legion. We
educated 64 women and three fathers on a
variety of health and parenting issues such
as immunizations, SIDS and Shaken Baby
Syndrome, brain development, parenting,
household safety, breastfeeding, smoking
cessation and postpartum depression. Cli-
ents from the Healthy Start and MomCare
programs sat at each booth for 15 minutes
to be educated while being served healthy
snacks. Small gifts such as bibs and sippy
cups were given away at each booth. Each
client had a chance to win a large raffle item
at each booth as well as a crib or a basket
full of baby items. When all booths were
completed, volunteers, educators and cli-
ents all had a chance to win door prizes.
The Coalition wishes to thank the Ameri-
can Legion once again for the use of their
hall.
A very special and well earned thank you
goes to the HOSA students from the High
School. The Health Occupations Students
of America, under the direction of Denise
Kelchner, RN.C, volunteer twice each year
for the Educational Baby Shower. Not only
does this give the students an opportunity to
earn community service hours for their port-
folios but it also generates a part of the man-
datory "in-kind" donation services the Coali-
tion is required by the State to document.
The students lend their bi-lingual skills to the
Coalition by translating to groups of Spanish
mothers. They serve food and help with reg-

EMS assessment
There were two underlying reasons that I
failed to attend the commission meeting that
gave us our new EMS tax. One was clairvoy-
ance and the other was common sense. I
knew beforehand that the new tax was a
foregone conclusion and common sense
told me no politician in his right mind would
take a stand against the churches.
I spoke out against the 86 percent in-
crease in gas taxes in 2007 when the aver-
age worker was most vulnerable. It was a
tax that no one, not even the church could
escape.
As a former combat leader I admire the
commissioners in every respect. The best
tactic is to attack when they are down. We
are at nearly 15 percent unemployment in
the county. What better time to hit us with a
new tax? But why not churches too?
Is Divine Providence going to keep the
congregation safe? What if a holy roller
bumps his head on a pew, a snake handler
is bitten, or someone chokes while babbling
in tongues? My view is that if EMS rolls, one
pays, all pay! No exceptions!
Since man first learned to control his fel-
low man by invoking the fear of God, the
business of religion has prospered. Our es-
teemed Commissioners proved not to be
exempt. So much for separation of church
and state.
As for Mr. Rollins: he voiced my senti-
ments. To the preacher who threatened the
commissioners with fire and brimstone... it
is the 99 percent of preachers like you who
give the other 1 percent a bad name.

38th; and, Glades County ranks 59th.
The top five counties in Florida are Os-
ceola, Broward, St. Lucie, Orange and Lee.
"St. Lucie County got bombarded with
foreclosures," said Ms. Robertson. "It hit us
later. It started hitting us around the end of
2007 and the first of 2008. Ours has increased
while theirs has slowed down."


Budget
Continued From Page 1
The total approved budget is $91,768,439
which is 8.88 percent less than the current
budget. However, getting to that figure was
like pulling teeth. A total of $4.4 million
was cut from the original proposed budget.
County commissioners cut $2,937,672 from
their budgets by doing such things as cutting
insurance costs, not filling vacant positions
and cutting assistance to nonprofit organi-
zations. Constitutional officers did their part
by cutting a total of $1,462,328 from their
budgets in addition to the cuts they had pre-
viously made before submitting their pro-
posed budgets.
Taxpayers will be paying less taxes than
originally proposed. At first a higher mill-


According to figures from Ms. Robert-
son's office, there were 381 foreclosure cas-
es in Okeechobee County from Aug. 1, 2007,
until Aug. 1, 2008. That number swelled,
however, to 524 from Aug. 1, 2008, to Aug.
1,2009.
Ms. Robertson said there are a number of
reasons why Okeechobee homeowners are
having trouble paying their mortgages. Some
people bought up homes when the real es-
tate market was hot a couple of years ago
with the expectation of a quick sale and a
quick profit. However, when the bottom fell


age rate was proposed. However, after a
public meeting on Sept. 3 that millage rate
was dropped to 7.5030,a rate calculated to
bring in the same amount of tax money as
last year.
At that same meeting commissioners
also agreed to exempt non profit organiza-
tions from the emergency medical services
(EMS) assessment, cut the EMS assessment
in half for everyone else and decided not to
raise the fire assessment. However, those
reductions came with a price. Expenditures
in the proposed budget were based on rev-
enues from the increased assessments and
higher millage rate. With no corresponding
cuts in spending, the difference will have
to be made up by digging into the county's
dwindling reserves.

out of the market some of these speculators
were caught with unsold property and were
then unable to pay for these properties.
"But, also, a lot of people have lost their
jobs and they just can't afford their mortgag-
es," she said.
And that's where the Collins Center for
Public Policy comes into play. Ms. Robertson
said an administrative order was signed Feb.
20 in the 19th Judicial Circuit that gives hom-
eowners the chance to mediate with the lien
holder and possibly lower their mortgage
payments. "We were the first one to adopt
this order," said Ms. Robertson.
Under this process, which is for owner-
occupied residences only, when a foreclo-
sure case is filed the court refers the case to
the Collins Center.
Taking part in the mediation process is a
mediator and financial consultant from the
Collins center, the homeowner and a repre-
sentative of the lien holder who can make
decisions on accepting a lower payment in
lieu of foreclosure.
Tara Klimek, press secretary for the Col-
lins Center, said there are currently three ju-
dicial circuits in Florida taking advantage of
this program-the 1st, which is N.W Florida,
the 11 th which is Miami, and the 19th which
covers Okeechobee. In the last couple of
months, Ms. Klimek said 13 Okeechobee
cases were slated for mediation. Of those, 10
were successful and three were settled prior
to the mediation.
A total of 92 Okeechobee cases are being
referred to mediation and some of those are
"still in the pipeline," she said.
Since the Administrative Order was
signed by then Chief Judge William Roby,


331 cases have gone to mediation in the
19th Judicial Circuit and 238 were success-
ful. Ms. Klimek said another 48 cases were
settled prior to mediation.
"The actual mediation only takes a few
hours," she said.
Ms. Klimek said the process is currently
operating at a 72 percent success rate, and
an attorney is not mandatory during media-
tion.
The Collins Center, based in Tallahas-
see, has been in existence since 1988 and is
named after former Florida governor LeRoy
Collins. Ms. Klimek said the Center became
involved in mediations in 2005-06 after the
state was ravaged by hurricanes. The state
created a program to provide for mediation
to settle insurance disputes to keep them
from going to court if possible and then con-
tracted with the Center to handle the media-
tions. If a homeowner chooses to enter me-
diation they must fill out a set of forms and
pay a fee to the county. The county keeps
$10 of that fee and the rest covers court fees
and other costs. The Collins Center is a not-
for-profit organization.
As of June 1, the filing fees are: if the
property is less than or equal to $50,000,
the fee is $400; if more than $50,001 but less
than $250,000, the fee is $905; and if greater
than $250,001, the fee is $1,905.
Ms. Robertson said her office has paid the
Collins Center $60,680 in fees this year.
Although the foreclosure rates in
Okeechobee County have gotten somewhat
better, Ms. Robertson said it's still anything
but good. "We all know somebody that it's
touched," she said. "It's a sad situation."

Signups underway for Conservation Stewardship Program


The U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Natural Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS) began continuous sign-up for the
new Conservation Stewardship Program
(CSP) on Aug. 10, statewide. The first cutoff
for ranking purposes is scheduled for Sept.
30, State Conservationist, Carlos Suarez an-
nounced.
"The Conservation Stewardship Program
changed dramatically in the 2008 Farm Bill,"
said Carlos Suarez. "NRCS took the time to
develop a program that would appeal to our
diverse customers and offer them an equal
chance to participate. We hope that agricul-
tural and forestry producers in Florida take
full advantage of the benefits this newly re-
vised program offers."
The Food, Conservation, and Energy
Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill) authorized the
Conservation Stewardship Program. Con-
gress renamed and revamped the former
Conservation Security Program completely
to improve its availability and appeal to agri-
cultural and forestry producers. The Conser-
vation Stewardship Program will be offered
in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and
the Pacific and Caribbean areas through
continuous sign-ups with announced cut-off
application dates for ranking periods. The
maximum annual enrollment is capped at
nearly 12.8 million acres nationwide.
NRCS administers CSP, a voluntary con-
servation program designed to encourage
agricultural and forestry producers to adopt
additional conservation practices and im-
prove, maintain and manage existing ones.
To apply for the newly revamped CSP,
individual producers, legal entities and In-
dian tribes will be encouraged to use a self-
screening checklist first to determine wheth-
er the new program is suitable for them or
their operation. The checklist is available on
NRCS Web sites and at NRCS field offices.
After the self-screening, the producer's
current and proposed conservation activi-
ties are entered in the conservation mea-
surement tool (CMT). This tool estimates
the level of environmental performance to
be achieved by a producer implementing
and maintaining conservation activities. The
conservation performance estimated by the
CMT will be used to rank applications.
A producer must treat at least one re-
source concern and one priority resource
concern during the length of the CSP's five-
year contract. Florida will select between
three to five priority resource concerns, one
of the criteria that will be used to rank ap-
plications. The State Technical Committee
will advise the NRCS State Conservationist


as he or she selects priority resource con-
cerns. Florida will establish ranking pools
to rank applications with similar resource
concerns. The priority resource concerns
for Florida are water quality, water quantity,
animals, energy and plants. NRCS field staff
will conduct on-site field verifications of pre-
approved applicants' information provided
for the CMT.
Another major change in the program is
the method of payments. CSP will offer two
possible types of payments-annual and
supplemental. The annual payment will be
established using the conservation perfor-
mance estimated by the CMT and calculated
by land use type for enrolled eligible land.
A supplemental payment is also available
to participants who also adopt a resource-
conserving crop rotation. The annual pay-
ment limitation for a person or legal entity is
$40,000. A person or legal entity cannot ex-
ceed $200,000 for all CSP contracts entered
into during any five-year period.
Individual producers, legal entities and
Indian tribes must meet several require-
ments to obtain a Conservation Stewardship
Program contract. They must be listed as
the operator in the USDA farm records man-
agement system for the operation being of-
fered for enrollment. They must document
that they control the land for the term of the
contract and include all eligible land in their
entire operation in that contract. They must
comply with highly erodible land and wet-
land conservation provisions and comply
with Adjusted Gross Income provisions.
Eligible lands include cropland, grass-
land, prairie, improved pastureland, range-
land, non-industrial private forestland-a
new land use for the program-and agricul-
tural land under the jurisdiction of an Indian
tribe. Land enrolled in the Conservation
Security Program, Conservation Reserve
Program, Grasslands Reserve Program and
Wetlands Reserve Program is ineligible for
the new Conservation Stewardship Pro-
gram. The new CSP is very different from the
old Conservation Security Program. Under
the old program, producers were eligible if
they were in the selected watersheds. Land-
owners are encouraged to start the eligibil-
ity process as soon as possible, in order to
make the cutoff date. All contracts under the
old CSP will be honored until the end of the
contract term.
For more information about the new CSP,
please visit www.fl.nrcs.usda.gov., contact
your Local NRCS office at 863-763-3619 ext.
502, or stop by the USDA Service Center, 452

Moore Haven Lock now open


MOORE HAVEN-The Jacksonville District,
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was able to re-
open Moore Haven Lock to navigation on Sept.
23, thus making the Okeechobee Waterway
passable once again from the Atlantic Ocean to
the Gulf of Mexico.
Crossing the state of Florida is now pos-
sible through the entire lock system as the lock
maintenance was completed sooner than most
recently anticipated. Repair of the lock had
been delayed due to mechanical problems.
Repair of the lock was a $3.5 million, regu-
larly-scheduled project, conducted once every
ten years. The work included upgrading navi-
gational safety equipment, improving manatee


protection screen systems and painting and
sand-blasting lock gates. The repairs must be
made while the lock is in a dewatered condi-
tion, thus ensuring the lock, which is more than
70 years old, will continue to function safely and
properly. Repair crews worked extended hours
to ensure the repairs were completed and the
lock was restored to safe operating condition.
Additional information concerning Lake
Okeechobee and the adjoining waterway may
be obtained by accessing the Jacksonville Dis-
trict web site at http://www.saj.usace.army.mil
and choosing the OPERATIONS DIVISION tab
and selecting the NOTICE TO NAVIGATION
from the pull down menu.

offered manager training, consultant team
visits, design and other technical assistance,
as well as the benefit of experience gained
by other Florida Main Street programs.
Twenty-seven honor or merit awards
were presented for exceptional accomplish-
ments within Florida Main Street communi-
ties. Okeechobee Main Street was represent-
ed in three award categories.
Mr. Browning presented Okeechobee

OUA gives final approval to rate increase


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Water bills will be going up 6 percent.
At a special meeting on Thursday morn-
ing, Sept. 24 the Okeechobee Utility Author-
ity (OUA) Board of Directors gave final ap-
proval to a 6 percent increase in water and
sewer rates.
The budget as originally proposed con-
tained no rate increases. However, the board
decided to raise rates to cover any shortfalls
in payments on developers' agreements.
This year several developers failed to make
the annual payment on their developer's
agreement.


At the regular board meeting on Sept.
8, board members gave final approval to a
budget for fiscal year 2009/2010 with total
operating expenses of $6,508,105. This fig-
ure represents a 7.4 percent reduction from
the present year's budget and contains no
pay raises for employees.
As a result of board action on Thursday,
the water base facility charge went from
$17.74 to $18.80 for a three quarter inch
residential meter. For residential customers
with a three quarter inch meter the rate per
thousand gallons went from $3.74 to $3.96
per thousand gallons for the first 3,000 gal-
lons. For any water used over 3,000 gallons


the rate increased from $5.61 to $5.95 per
1,000 gallons.
The wastewater base facility charge for
a three quarter inch residential meter went
from $19.79 to $20.98. The residential rate
for wastewater increased from $6.16 per
thousand gallons to $6.53 per thousand gal-
lons.
The base facility charge and water and
wastewater rates for non residential custom-
ers also increased accordingly.
However, the good news is that not all
rates went up. The fee for inspection of wa-
ter service lines is cut in half-from $80 to
$40. The fee for inspection of a wastewater


service line also dropped to $40. It had been
$90. The water capital connection charge
for any size meter dropped from $1,650 to
$1,510. However, the wastewater capital
connection charge for any size meter in-
creased from $2,725 to $2,935.
In the only other action conducted that
day the board approved submission of the
non ad valorem assessment roll to the tax
collector. This authorized the tax collector
to attach the 2009 payments due on devel-
oper's agreements as an assessment on the
individual developer's tax bill next year.

Okeechobee News
Clewiston High School's volleyball team
couldn't keeupup with the Jones' Tuesday.
The Okeechobee High School team played
a rare match against Clewiston and easily de-
feated the Tigers, 25-5, 25-16, and 25-13 Tues-
day.
"I've always wondered why we haven't
played Clewiston in a long time," Brahmans
Coach Todd Jones said, "They aren't always
strong enough competition to merit the trav-
el."
Okeechobee will play at Clewiston later
this year but Jones said he likely won't sched-
ule the Tigers again.
A group of freshmen, Darby Jones, Sarah
Davis, Maci Thomas and Krista Ward, all got
considerable playing time Tuesday.
Darby said she felt the group did very well.
"We had a few mess ups. We don't nor-
mally play together. As a freshman getting to
play, I think we played very well. I think it is a
much bigger challenge than JV I'm ready for
it."
Coach Jones said he is encouraged to see
the future of the volleyball program, "Our
voune girls have the ability to set the iob done.


Darby Jones is among a group of four
freshmen who played well against
Clewiston.


et directions during a Brahman time out

Their accuracy is encouraging."
Jones said the girls have battled the flu bug
in the past week. He said that contributed to
their lackluster performance at a tournament
last Saturday in Bartow where Okeechobee
split four matches.
"We should have won it," he said. "We're
beat up with the flu. We're hoping to get
healthy before the end of the season so we
can turn it on and show some improvement."

Brahman scouting report; Sebastian River Sharks ,
Licensed Real Estate Brokee


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Two winless teams square off at Brah-
man stadium tonight, Sebastian River and
Okeechobee.
Sebastian River, (0-2), lost to St. Lucie
West Centennial last week 10-7 on a Hail
Mary pass.
Okeechobee has won the last two meet-
ings between the two teams.
Sebastian River continues to feature a
wide open wing-t offense that focuses on
the running game. QB Cortez Ash and Wes-
ley Wilson have split time. Ash, a veteran,
ran for a 50 yard score against Centennial
last week.
Fred Macon is the Sharks' top running
back this year. Stephan Clarke is their pri
mary target in the passing game.
"They are a veteran team, an experienced
team. They do what they do well. They don't
try to hide. They'll line up and run the foot-
ball and be aggressive," Brahman Coach
Myron Jackson said.
Jackson has gotten back to basics in prac
tice this week. He's emphasized his players
to execute their assignments and not make
mental errors.
"I you get them in third and long situa-
tions you have a chance to be successful.
We have to force them to throw the football.
That is something they don't want to major
in," he added.
Freshman Jack Radebaugh is expected to
start the game at QB for Okeechobee. D.J.
Washington is nursing a groin pull. Jackson

said the coaching staff has done their best
to get Radebaugh ready for his first varsity
start.
"We'll try to keep it close and have a
chance," Jackson noted. "We'll game plan
the same, create turnovers, hold onto the
ball as much as possible and stay away from
little penalties. We harp on them every day
in practice and you hope that one day the
light comes on and they just pick it up."
The Brahmans also continue to have
several ankle injuries. T.J. Allen, Deforest


Shanks and Alonzo Coleman all could play
this week. Josh McCall could also return
from symptoms of a concussion.
Coach Jackson said the players continue
to work hard and pay attention in practice
each week. He said sooner or later their
dedication will pay off.
"It's only my second month working and
knowing these young men. They get mis-
aligned and are out of place for whatever
reason. In practice and in the classroom,
we show them their mistakes and correct
them. One of these days they'll carry it to
Friday," he said. "There's too much thinking
out there and they are playing slow. You play
fast when you react."

FREDHI board has new officers


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
There has been a shake up
of board members at the Florida
Heartland Regional Economic
Development Initiative.
Glades County Commission
er Butch Jones was voted out
as Chairman of FREDHI at the
group's organizational meeting
Monday at the Sebring Civic Cen-
ter. Ron Neads of Desoto County
was handed the reigns of the or-
ganization.
Mr. Jones admitted he has
concerns about the future of the
organization but wouldn't delve
publicly into what is behind
these concerns.
Highlands County Commis-


sioner Jeff Carlson, who has
criticized the group's account-
ing practices, and voted against
the annual budget Monday, was
named Vice Chairman.
"I'm not disappointed," Mr.
Jones said, "I told them before
the vote it's a shame we can't
pull together. It's irrelevant if I'm
chair or not, Glades County will
still participate and I will contin-
ue to attend the meetings."
Mr. Jones said three of the
four board members of FREDHI
were ousted in the annual vote.
Okeechobee's Kathy Scott was
voted in as the new Treasurer.
Mr. Jones had been chair
man of FREDHI for nine years.
He said the agency has modest
beginnings but has increased


their budget from $35,000 annu-
ally to nearly $500,000. He said
he could remember when Betty
Neale ran FREDHI on her credit
card.
"We've been building. FRE-
DHI could be something some
day," he added.
Mr. Carlson continued to de-
bate the accounting practices
used by FREDHI at the annual
meeting. He was the only mem-
ber to vote against the budget,
which included the Florida
Freshwater Frontier budget. The
total was close to $468,000.
Mr. Jones noted FREDHI is
also close to landing a $29 mil-
lion broadband grant that would
bring a lot to the region.
Commissioner Neads com-
mended Mr. Jones for his work
over the past 17 years. He urged


his colleagues to stay united on
the future of FREDHI.
FREDHI includes Okeecho-
bee, Glades, Hendry, Highlands,
Hardee, and Desoto Counties
along with the cities of Immoka-
lee, South Bay, Belle Glade and
Pahokee.
Joey Hoover represents the
Okeechobee County Commis-
sion on the FREDHI group.
Mr. Jones said the group has
adhered to the advice of their
accounting firm and changed
some of their accounting prac
tices. They will present the finan-
cials at their monthly meetings.
The Treasurer will meet with
staff and their accountant at least
four times a year to review the
financial records.

Census Count important to local agencies


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Melissa Serrano with the U.S. Census
Bureau spoke on the 2010 census and the
importance of being counted when the
Okeechobee Community Collaborative
Council met Tuesday.
"We want to count everyone who is
breathing in the United States," she said.
The census provides data used to decide
how much grants and funds are dolled out
by the Federal Government to local govern-
ments.
Forms will be mailed out in March, 2010.
Committees in Okeechobee City and the
County are being formed to drive the out-
reach and promotion effort.
January, outreach efforts will pick up.
More media events will also be held. They
have a national communication campaign
designed to increase publicity.
Census takers will go door to door to
households in the County next year. Infor-
mation given out is completely confiden-
tial. "We encourage everyone to fill out the
census questionnaire. We want to educate
people as much as we can so they fill out
that form and send it back."
Census information is locked away for 72
years. Only you can have access to that in-
formation before the 72 years, Serrano said.
The form takes about 10 minutes to com-
plete. There are only 10 questions mostly
about age, race, and ethnic background.
Okeechobee will also receive a number
of bilingual questionnaires. Those with post
office boxes will have census forms hand
delivered to their home, she added.
Ms. Serrano said local governments and
schools are highly impacted by census data,
"The federal government distributes over
$400 billion to local governments each year.
If people aren't counted they won't get the
revenue they need."
Only 54 percent of the census forms were
mailed back to the government in the 2000
census.
Serrano said Okeechobee County officials
were not happy with the 2000 count. They
maintain the numbers were not realistic, es-
pecially for children under five years old.
The census also determines how many
house of representative seats each state will

have. They also help determine boundaries
for state, local, and congressional districts.
Pam Harwas of Okeechobee Schools
spoke on mental health services available
to Okeechobee children. She attends tru-
ancy court, helps collect supplies and food
for families where needed, and has reached
between 300 and 500 kids and their family
each year.
Katharine Williams, a crisis counselor for
children, explained that after the Columbine
incident in Colorado, every school district
must have a crisis plan. She stated that if
a student threatens to harm themselves or
somebody else, they come in, interview the
child, and decide what level of risk they pose
to the school campus. At times, students are
Baker acted. They also provide follow up
services to children that are Baker acted.
Williams said there are certain words stu-
dents can't use at school. Last year they had

250 crisis calls from local schools. Those
numbers are rising. Many of the students re-
ceive counseling.
"Times are different now, families are
breaking down, and there is a bigger need
for our kids," she said.
We figure out what they need and help
them, she added.
Officials note there are a number of kids
who repeat this behavior. In some cases,
parents refuse the counseling and assistance
that is offered to them.
Harwas said she is not easily discouraged
and she continues to encourage the parents
to get assistance for their children.
Sharon Vinson said over 5,500 children in
Okeechobee now have medical insurance.
She mentioned that there are still a lot of
children who don't have health insurance.
"A healthy kid is a better kid," Mrs. Vinson
said.
Vinson reported a great response for the
annual school supply drive. My Aunts House
still has left over school supplies available to
needy kids.
The CCC will take part in a Christmas
gift collection effort this year to benefit local
children. Last year about 300 children were
served in Okeechobee.
Healthy Start hosted a baby shower last
Friday. Sixty-four clients attended. Nineteen
educators and providers were in attendance.
There were 35 volunteer students from the
high school who attended.


A benefit barbecue for Healthy Start will
be held at the Okeechobee County Health
Department on Nov. 7. Tickets are $5. A si-
lent auction will also be held.
Freedom Ranch will hold a Family Fun
Day for Operation Christmas Child Saturday,
Sept. 26. Gifts are sent to children around
the world.
Buggy rides, games, and bounce houses
will be available for kids. The event runs
from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. There is no charge
to attend.
Angela Kelly said over 20 people showed
up for the first meeting of the initiative to ad-
dress tobacco issues in Okeechobee.
The United Way will host a golf tourna-
ment on Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Okeecho-
bee Golf and Country Club.
Big Brothers Big Sisters will hold their
second annual clay shoot on Oct. 24, at
Quail Creek Plantation.
The American Red Cross in Okeechobee

October 27, at the School Board offices at
10 a.m.
