OCSO to step up enforcement of bus laws


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
During the week of Oct. 19-23, the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office will
heighten their enforcement of school bus
safety laws-specifically, the passing of a
stopped school bus.
Sheriff Paul May said this week has been
designated as School Bus Safety Week by
the National Association of Pupil Transpor-
tation (NAPT). And because of that, OCSO
deputies will be assigned to certain areas
in marked patrol units, unmarked cars and
on motorcycles to catch and enforce Florida


state statute 316.172 which makes passing a
stopped school bus a moving infraction.
There have been 100 times fewer fatali-
ties on school buses than any other mode of
transportation-including private vehicles,
bikes and pedestrians.
Statistics show that per 100,000 passen-
gers the fatality rate is: .01 for buses; .96 for
private vehicles; and, .06 for airlines.
Last year in the United States, only five
children were killed on a school bus as pas-
sengers. These deaths were due to extreme
crashes.
Also last year, 29 children across the na-


tion were killed while getting on and off
school buses. The majority of these fatali-
ties were due to motorists illegally passing a
stopped school bus.
According to federal law, school buses
are required to have eight warning lights-
four yellow and four red flashing lights-to
warn motorists that the bus is stopping. Bus-
es also must have a stop arm that extends
from the driver's side of the bus.
It is illegal to pass a stopped school bus
when the lights are flashing and the stop
arm is extended.
If a motorist is convicted of passing a


stopped school bus, four points will be as-
signed to their driver's license and they will
be fined at least $173. The motorist may also
face a mandatory county court appearance.
The NAPT is a non-profit organization
with the mission of enhancing the safety of
our nation's children. Their objectives are
to: inform communities about the benefits
of bus travel; conduct research regarding the
safer and environmentally-friendly school
bus; and, provide training and education for
school transportation specialists.

Why is it at the ag center? Why not
downtown in the park?
The first year they moved it from down-
town to the Ag center. This was done at the
last minute because it was pouring rain on
Halloween. That was a recurring problem
with the event in the park -- some years it
was cut short due to the weather. I think that
is why they hold it at the ag center now -- at
least it is under cover. But with so many peo-
ple attending, more activities would make it
better.
I say bring back the traditional Hal-

take pride in decoration, and providing the
best treats on the block. Now people even
if home turn out their lights so they won't
be bothered. Now I have to drive my kids
to go Trick or Treating, when before we
would just walk on our block and hit plenty
of houses. It is a shame that people have for
gotten what it is to be neighborly.
A lot of people stopped trick or treat
ing after the hurricanes in 2004 and 2005 be
cause there was so much debris it was not
safe for the kids to be walking around in the
dark. The party downtown, and then later at
the ag center, provided a safe alternative.
I have taken the kids to the Halloween
Festival every year since Hurricane Wilma
ruined Halloween. Main Street does a great
job and it has grown every year. Last year
they had two haunted houses in the barn
area, a great costume contest, plenty of
game booths and tons of candy for the kids!
They even offered a reasonably priced meal
and drinks. It is a great festival for our kids
and it is supported by the Sheriff, the Chief of
Police and the Commissioners. This is a free
event for the kids and is only meant to be
an alternative to trick or treating so it is your
choice to take your children there. I like tak-
ing mine because it is safe. They get to trick
or treat rain or shine. The kids get plenty of
candy and have fun.

Consolidate the fire
departments
I say keep the workers we have and
consolidate both depts into one! Most of
them seem to have worked with each other
anyways. Our city departments are a waste
of taxpayer's monies at this point in time.
Why not put all the eggs in one basket and
have all the funding we need for law en-
forcement and EMS?


I suggest that the county donate the
EMS/fire equipment, employees, and build-
ing to the city. The city can operate the ser-
vice .1 live in the country and this service is
of no benefit to me. If I was to ever call send
me a bill.
I'm willing to privatize the EMS\fire ser-
vice, it can't be any worse than what I got
right now; nothing.
Consolidating the fire departments
would only save money if the city residents
were willing to keep paying their current
city taxes toward fire service in addition to
paying county taxes. Right now it's the city
residents who pay city taxes in order to have
their own fire and police departments. If
they consolidated, I doubt the city residents
would be willing to keep paying those extra
taxes. So the reduction in taxes would eat
up any savings. Consolidation might save
money for the city residents but would prob
ably wind up costing those who live outside
the city limits more.

USA upset over losing
Olympic bid?
I seem to be missing something here....
WHY are we supposed to be upset over los-
ing out on hosting the Olympic Games? I
should think we might cheer this as a win as
the amount it would have cost the nation to
prepare Chicago to host this event would be
phenomenal. Then there is the cost of Na-
tional Security. Followed by a list longer then
your arm of other expenses.
A poll showed 45 percent of the people
in Chicago did not even want the Olympics
there. Not everyone is upset.
The Olympic Games are an honor to
host, because it is a chance for our athletes
to win on their own turf and to showcase
our nation to the entire world. So much time
and attention is spent on war and politics,
and here we have a chance to compete with
other countries on a completely different
playing field, and to be able to host that cele-
bration of sportsmanship and athleticism in-
vokes those same feelings of pride as when
you see our athletes on the podium. The se-
lection of a host city is a huge two year pro-
cess, a competition in itself, which grabs the
attention and headlines of the entire world.
The 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta created
an estimated 80,000 jobs. Tourists spent
an estimated $14.7 billion during that year,
mostly outside of the Olympic period.

Hunters help Florida get a grip on python problem


As I See It

By Rodney Barreto
Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
There is a growing concern in South Flor-
ida regarding how we should help control
a particular nonnative reptile that has been
receiving a lot of media attention lately. I'm
talking about the Burmese python problem
we are experiencing.
Most experts believe pet owners are at
least partly responsible for the situation we
are in because they released their pet py-
thons into the wild illegally when the snakes
had grown too large to care for. Over time,
these invasive snakes have spread through-
out the Everglades. Since the Burmese py-
thon has few natural predators in Florida,
its numbers have grown into the thousands
in South Florida, and it ,. F r- .-.in on

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-

and Big Cypress. Because hunters have al-

hunt on any of these four WMAs is eligible
to participate. In addition, those with a state-
wide alligator harvest permit can participate
if that permit enables them to hunt alligators
on any of those WMAs.
To be even more specific, properly li-
censed and permitted hunters can harvest
Burmese pythons during specified hunting
seasons and during legal shooting hours
on these four WMAs. And those who have
a statewide alligator harvest permit allow-
ing them to hunt alligators in the counties
where these WMAs lie can harvest Burmese
pythons through Nov. 1, during legal hunting
hours.
Besides Burmese pythons, all reptiles of
concern may be harvested, including the
Indian python, reticulated python, African
rock pii .. .. i.-i, ,,,.- or scrub python,
green -.,1 ....!i ,... 1.1 monitor lizard.
However, there is a slim chance of encoun-
tering any of these other reptiles of concern
in the wild in South Florida other than the
Ii.i ., ..... method-of-take stipu-
lations, though, that participating hunters
must follow. Hunters may use nets and
snares to capture reptiles of concern, but
they must euthanize them on site. Hunters
also can use guns and firearms in taking
these reptiles during hunting periods when
their specific use is allowed (i.e., bows dur-
ing archery season, muzzleloaders during
muzzleloading gun season, etc.). When
alligator hunting, people may use all legal
methods for taking alligators, including bang
sticks, harpoons and spear guns, to take rep-
tiles of concern.

Adopt a pet
There are lots of nice dogs and
cats at the Okeechobee Humane
Society, each waiting for their "for-
ever" home. For more information,
contact Humane Society Pet Res-
cue Florida, at 863-357-1104. To
see more available animals go to
PETFINDER.COM. Homes are also
needed to "foster" animals who are
waiting for a permanent adoptive
home.


Any harvested reptile of concern may
not be taken out of the areas alive and must
be reported to the FWC within 36 hours by
calling, toll-free, 866-392-4286 or going to
MyFWC.com and choosing Burmese py-
thons from the "Quick Clicks" section. How-
ever, any reptile of concern taken from Big
Cypress must be checked in at one of the
area's six check stations.
You can even have some fancy cowboy
boots made from python, but I don't recom-
mend eating the meat because, according to
the National Park Service, testing done on
two dozen captured Burmese pythons in the
Everglades revealed high levels of mercury
in the meat-levels well above that consid-
ered safe to eat.
If you do not feel safe or comfortable ap-
proaching and harvesting a reptile of con-
cern, that's understandable, but the FWC
would still like you to report any such sight-
ings by calling the toll-free number or going
online.
If you'd like more information on Bur-
mese pythons or the current situation, visit
MyFWC.com/Nonnatives.
Hunters historically have played criti-
cal roles in conservation in this state, and
I'd like to thank them once again for their
contributions in helping us eradicate these
invasive, nonnative reptiles from South Flor-
ida-thereby preserving native wildlife for
the future of hunting in Florida.

Rivera was arrested for stealing a radio,
amplifier and speakers from a Ford Expedi-
tion that was sitting in the parking lot of El
Amigo Todos in downtown Okeechobee.
He then led police and deputies on a high
speed chase during which he ran a stoplight
at U.S. 98 and S.R. 70 W
He then tried to elude law enforcement
by jumping from the Ford Crown Victoria
he was driving and running into a wooded
area in DeBerry Gardens.
Rivera was arrested a short time later at
his home by Deputy '.. i. ..... .. i.

Office (OCSO).
Defense attorney Stanley Glenn, from
the Public Defender's Office, told thb iid-op
that Rivera was "contrite and i. ..... i


for what he had done. Mr. Glenn also stated
that while in jail Rivera took his GED test
and will soon know if he passed.
Mr. Glenn then stated that a prison term
of two to three years would be appropriate.
But Assistant State Attorney Bernard
Romero had different ideas and told Judge
Mirman that Rivera was looking at a maxi-
mum prison stint of 20 years.
"He said he now sees the light," said Mr-
Romero of the defendant, "when he's actu-
ally feeling the heat."
Before the judge handed down his sen-
tencing order he heard from OCSO Detec-
tive Sergeant Brad Stark, who testified that
Rivera is a documented member of the
Varrio Boys, a local gang. Rivera was also
actively involved in a 2007 gang tagging in-
cident inside the city limits, said the detec-
tive.
Sgt. Stark, who heads up the OCSO street
crimes unit and has been documenting lo-
cal criminal street gangs since 1995, told the
judge that the Varrio Boys have been promi-
nent in Okeechobee County since 1992.
Locally, he added, that group has merged
with the Gangster Satan Disciples and the
Surenos gangs.
Judge Mirman ruled that upon his release
from prison, Rivera will not be required to
serve time on probation. However, he will
have his driver's license suspended for two
years.

county jail. Judge Mirman ordered that she
must also testify truthfully against a co-
defendant. She was ordered to serve four
years on probation on each burglary count
and 42 months probation on each grand
theft charge. Those probation periods will
run concurrently. Gilman will also have to
pay $571.93 in restitution as well as court
costs and fees of $595 on each case, which
total $2,380.
Jerrid Douglas received a sentence of
60 days in the county jail after he was found
guilty of grand theft. He will also serve two
years on probation. Douglas received credit

in restitution, as well as $1,651 in court
costs and fees.

Second man arrested in kidnapping case


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A second man has been arrested for his
alleged connection in a March 14 incident
in which a local man was forcibly removed
from his home.
Ismael S. Vega, 18, N.W. 39th Circle, was
arrested Friday, Oct. 2, on a warrant charg-
ing him with false imprisonment. He was
booked into the Okeechobee County Jail
under a bond of $10,000.
An Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) detective said Vega apparently fled
the state after the incident and was arrested
in Okeechobee late last week on a local war-
rant.
Earl Thomas Brown, 21, N.W 98th St.,
Okeechobee, was arrested Sept. 14 for his
alleged participation in the purported abduc-
tion. Like Vega, he was charged with false
imprisonment and booked into the county
jail under a $10,000 bond.
This case began March 14 when a wom-
an awoke and saw a man on the front porch
of her N.W Fifth St. home. When she yelled,


the interloper fled on a
skate board in the direction
of the Okeechobee County
annex building. A short
time later a white car was
seen pulling out of the an-
nex onto U.S. 98 N.
OCSO Detective Ted Van
Deman said an X-Box vid-
eo game was taken from Ismael S.
the porch and a radar de- Vega
tector was taken from the
woman's car.
The detective said the woman's boy-
friend, who was also a victim, apparently
learned the identity of the suspect. He then
contacted Brown and Vega and asked them
to tell the suspect-later identified as Colton
Freddy Garcia-that he wanted to talk to
him, the detective said.
Brown and Vega went to Garcia's home
but reportedly did more than deliver the
message.
"Brown and Vega took it upon them-
selves to forcibly remove Garcia from his
home and take him to the burglary victim's


home," explained Detective Van Deman.
On the way to the victim's home Garcia-
clad only in a pair of basketball shorts-
reportedly jumped from Brown's compact
truck in the 3100 block of N.W 34th Ave.
The truck was travelling at a speed of 30 to
40 mph, stated the detective.
"At this point, Garcia has no memory of
what happened. I believe he was knocked
unconscious," said Detective Van Deman.
He added that Garcia suffered scrapes to
,,,,.,j lI .,, ,, ,, .... I I. 11
,, Inh ,, I I ,,, lh. h ,,. I ,,,, I I I I ,,,,. ih
the home where he was apparently identi-
fied by the woman.
At some point Garcia, despite his injuries,
ran from the home.
OCSO deputies Matt Hurst and Matt
Crawford later saw Garcia, 19, running in
the 400 block of U.S. 98 N. while they were
responding to a kidnapping call. Ironically,
the kidnapped person was Garcia.
Detective Van Deman said when Garcia
saw the two deputies he ran into some near-
by woods, where he was later caught and


placed in handcuffs by the deputies.
When the deputies got Garcia into some
light they saw his injuries and immediately
called an ambulance, which then took the
man to Raulerson Hospital. Garcia was later
transferred to Lawnwood Regional Medical
Center in Fort Pierce.
According to the detective, Brown then
fled to South Carolina and Vega went to
North Carolina.
Brown surrendered to the detective on
Sept. 14. Brown was also arrested on war-
rants charging him with violating his proba-
tion. He had previously been arrested on
charges of possession of marijuana, carry-
ing a concealed firearm and possession of
drug paraphernalia. He is being held with-
out bond on those charges.
On June 23, Detective Van Deman arrest-
ed Garcia on a felony charge of burglary and
a misdemeanor charge of petit theft. Those
charges were dropped by the state.
Garcia's family has incurred medical ex-
penses of more than $20,000, said the detec-
tive.


Report: Pot-eating man


charged with tampering


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was arrested on a
felony charge of tamper-
ing with evidence when
he reportedly tried to dis-
pose of some suspected
marijuana by eating it.
Colton Freddy Garcia,
19, N.W Sixth St., was
also arrested Wednesday,
Oct. 7, on misdemeanor
charges of possession Colton Freddy
of marijuana under 20 Garcia
grams and possession of
drug paraphernalia. He was booked into
the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond
of $3,000.
Arrested with Garcia was Brandon M.
Perez, 19, S.W American St., Indiantown.
He was arrested on misdemeanor charges
of possession of marijuana under 20 grams
and possession of drug paraphernalia. His
bond was set at $1,000.
An arrest report by a detective with the
Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force states a
vehicle was stopped in the 300 block of U.S.
98 N. for doing 55 mph in a 45 mph zone.
Perez was later identified as the driver, and
Garcia was a passenger in the vehicle.
The report states that a task force detec-
tive approached the passenger side of the
vehicle and saw a green leafy substance on
Garcia's shorts. The detective also saw that
Garcia was eating something and when he
opened his mouth the detective reportedly
saw a green leafy substance on the man's
tongue and around his mouth.


Garcia was told to spit the substance out,
and it was then retrieved by the detective.
According to the report, the substances
found on Garcia's shorts
and in his mouth were
field tested. That test indi-
cated a positive result for
the presence of marijua-
S na, stated the detective.
A glass pipe was al-
legedly found inside the
vehicle, and a field test on
Brandon M. the substance inside the
Perez pipe reportedly indicated
a positive result for the
presence of marijuana.
The arrest report does not indicate if Per-
ez was issued a traffic citation for speeding.

City delays its decision on radio system


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The City of Okeechobee's participation
;l. ilt ...r, I.. . Statewide Law En-
., .-,,.,i, i- ,.1. i.,, (SLERS) received a
temporary setback at the Tuesday, Oct. 6 city
council meeting.
In other action, the county's proposed
new emergency operations center took an-
other step toward reality at that meeting.
The council also took action to update their
pension programs.
After a lengthy discussion with deputy
county administrator Jim Threewits and rep-
resentatives of the Communications Division


of Harris Corporation, suppliers of the radio
equipment, the council decided to table any
action until the next meeting. While Mayor
Jim Kirk stated that SLERS would prob-
ably be the cheapest alternative, the council
wanted more specific information on how
the city's participation in the system would
be financed. There was concern that the fi-
nal cost could be more than what was bud-
geted for the system. The current city budget
contains $75,000 for SLERS. However, it is
estimated that the city's share of the cost for
SLERS will be $112,000.
The council held the first reading and set
a date of Nov. 3 as the final public hearing


date on the county's request to close NW
Seventh Avenue from NW Fourth Street
to NW Sixth Street and to close NW Fifth
Street from NW Seventh Avenue to the dead
end for the purpose of constructing a new
emergency operations center. The council
also held the first readings and set Nov. 3 as
the date for final public hearings for three
separate ordinances to amend the general
employees/OUA pension trust fund, police
officer's pension trust fund and firefighters'


Construction licensing board reinstates license


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
When they met Tuesday afternoon, Oct.
6 the Okeechobee County Construction
Industry Licensing Board faced four ac-
tion items-two requests for contractor's
licenses and two alleged building code vio-
lations.
However, the board only acted on one
item. The board reinstated the license of
Ron Vanderhoff of Accent Tile and Marble.
He had previously been licensed to do busi-
ness in the county. However, as the result


of an automobile accident, Mr. Vanderhoff
had let his license expire. As for the other
license request, the board took no action
because the applicant was not present.
Turning to violations, it was determined
that the alleged code violations of James
Sinamore of Top Notch Installations were
outside the board's scope of authority. The
board tabled action against Wilhelm Bur-
khardt d/b/a Burkhardt & Sons to allow for
further research.

and two members of the press present in the
audience at the Thursday meeting.
Commissioner Noel Chandler noted
that during his time as city councilman, the
meetings were held at 6 p.m. and they were
poorly attended except for "hot button" is-
sues.
Commissioner Ray Domer said he would
like to see the public more involved.
Terry Burroughs of the economic council
stated that there has been a change in de-
mographics and that more people would be
interested than were interested in the past.
Commissioners decided to try having
one meeting a quarter at night with the first
one on Jan. 28, 2010. It was noted that this
would give people a chance to address the
commission. Request forms to be on the
agenda are found on the county's website.

She said the car was so crushed around
her that rescuers had to use the jaws of life to
extract her from the tangled mess of metal.
Five years and 24 surgeries later, Mrs.
Chapman walks with a limp but she does it
with pride-proud that she is actually walk-
ing again, something many of her doctors
did not think possible.
"I appreciate my doctors, but I've got
them puzzled," she said.
She said she tried to find and thank the
many rescue workers who helped her.
"When I called the police to thank them,
I could tell the officer was surprised," she
remembered.
"He finally admitted, 'I thought you were
dead.' I had lost so much blood and was so

"With six pins in my legs, I am walking
again," she continued. "I have no ankle and
I have no heel, but I can walk."
She said her daughter, who was also seri-
ously injured in the crash, not only survived
but now has a new daughter.
In the years since the crash, Mrs. Chap-
man has written two books, "Saved by
Grace," and "Love Me Through," and started
a career as a public speaker.
"You hear a lot of bad stories in the
news," she said. She wants her story to give
people hope.
Her public speaking debut came during
a church service when she felt inspired to
speak.
"My knees were shaking," she admitted.
But she knew her message was important.

In a legal matter, the commissioners de-
cided to drop a long standing lawsuit against
Matthew 25 Ministries. The suit alleges the
organization operates group rehabilitation
homes for sex offenders in violation of coun-
ty zoning codes. The county attorney said it
appears they are no longer in violation of the
code. Turning to another legal matter, com-
missioners conducted an executive session
concerning pending litigation with the Flori-
da Department of Environmental Protection
and American Drilling.
Commissioners were asked to disclose if
they have any conflicts of interest with per-
sons applying for Community Development
Block Grant housing funds. They also autho-
rized the county administrator to apply for a

She now has a busy schedule of public
speaking engagements.
"You don't know your blessings until you
almost face death," she said. "Today is a gift
God gave you. Make the most of it. Just to be
able to breath, to be able to smile, to hug a
grandchild ... count your blessings.
"I remember after spending two months
in the hospital, I was so happy to hear birds
sing, just to be outdoors and hear the birds,"
she said.
"I'm speaking to give God glory," Mrs.
Chapman explained, "and to give hope to
people. I want them to realize how the rush
of every day life is so easy to be caught up
in. But when you're facing death, you don't
think about money. You think how you wish
you could hug your children again."







Red Cross responds to area fires


Now is the time for local residents to take
immediate action in preventing home fires.
Already this week, the Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has
responded to six major home fires within its
service area. The organization has provided
each of the 22 adults and children affected
by these fires with immediate emergency
assistance including shelter, food, clothing,
smoke soap and comfort kits; all at no cost
to the victims.
Assistance for families in local areas
because of fire that damaged or destroyed
homes included:
Major damage to a home from a house
fire on Oct. 2 on Fifth Street in Palmdale.
One adult lived in the home.
Home destroyed in fire on Oct. 3, at
incident occurring on S.W. 18th Street,
Okeechobee. Two adults lived in the home.
Home destroyed in house fire on Oct. 5
on North Detil in Clewiston. Two adults and
two children lived in the home.
o Home was destroyed in house fire on
Oct. 6, onAzalea Street, N.W. in LaBelle. One
adult and four children lived at the home.
Home received major damage in a
house fire on Oct. 6, on Azalea Street, N.W.
in LaBelle. Two adults lived in the home.
Home was destroyed in house fire on
Oct. 6, on S.E. 33rd Street, Okeechobee.


Three adults lived in the home.
Minor damage was sustained in
house fire on Oct. 6, on N.W 29th Avenue,
Okeechobee. Two adults and two children
lived in the home.
October is fire prevention month. Dur-
ing the month of October, the Red Cross
will spread the message that all individuals
should practice fire safety to avoid home
fires. A home fire can be destructive, costly,
devastating and even deadly; and often oc-
curs without warning. Home fires present
the biggest disaster threat to families across
our nation. Locally, dedicated volunteer
members of the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter respond to house fires once every
30 hours, on average.
This month, individuals who serve on

like other disasters, most home fires can be
prevented." The Red Cross is committed to
giving people the information they need to
reduce their risk of home fires, and to help-



f^~1


ing people recover after a fire happens.
The Red Cross encourages people to re-
member two key fire safety steps to protect
their home and loved ones from fires: Get a
smoke alarm, and have a fire escape plan.
Some alarms save lives. Sixty-five per-
cent of home fire deaths happen in homes
with no smoke alarms or with smoke
alarms that don't work. Make sure you have
a smoke alarm on every level of your home,
inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
Test your smoke alarm once a month by
pushing the test button, and replace the bat-
teries at least once a year.
Fires can spread throughout your
home in minutes, so when every second
counts, having a plan can help you escape.
Home fire escape plans should include at
least two ways to escape from every room
of your home. Also, select a meeting spot
at a safe distance from your home where
family members can go after escaping. Af-
ter discussing your plan with all members
of your household, you should practice the
plan twice a year.
Remember, home fires happen more
often than hurricanes, floods or tornadoes.
Take your family's life into your hands by
practicing fire safety.

ABWA honors local business women


At its annual Women of Distinction pro-
gram, the members of the Women of To-
morrow Chapter of the American Business
women's Association recognized four local
women for their leadership in the Okeecho-
bee business community. Meeting for lunch
at the Clock Family Restaurant on Sept. 24,
ABWA members were joined by current
honorees and their guests as well as former
honorees, many who return each year to
share in this event.
Recognitions are given in three cat
egories: Business Leadership, Educational
Leadership, and Community Service. The
2009 honorees are Sharon Ming of Edward
Jones Investments in Business Leadership;
Kelly Owens, Okeechobee School Board
Chairperson in Education; and both Raye
n1 ncinnpr vnlinteer Community Ambassa-
i I 1.. I . Blood Centers, and Teresa
Chandler, Assistant Vice-President Regional
Sales and Marketing Manager with Seacoast
National Bank, for Community Service.
Each woman was asked to share those
qualities that have led to her success. Sha-
ron Ming, a fourth generation Okeecho
bean, credited her parents for teaching her
a solid work ethic, which she is imparting
to her daughter Alexandria. Alex has had to
raise all of the money needed to compete in
the Miss Florida pageant. Sharon feels that
a good work ethic comes from taking re-
sponsibility for all aspects of life-personal
and professional. She credits her success in
business to having a team of well-organized
people behind her so that she can focus on
her job. Two other key factors are "practic-
ing what you preach" and "leading by ex-
ample." Lastly, she admitted that loving the
work you do is essential. You must enjoy go-
ing to the workplace everyday.
Kelly Owens, an admitted transplant,
has come to consider Okeechobee her
true home. She believes that her success
comes from doing work that allows her to
give back to this community. Success arises
from taking risks. She related the example
of becoming a middle-school math teacher
after initially stating unequivocally that she
did not want to teach either that age group


expand her knowledge. Passion for her work
keeps her focused. Finally, she stressed the
importance of building teamwork through
good interpersonal relations both at home
and at work.
Raye Deusinger, the heart of the annual
Blood Roundup, believes in trusting God to
direct a person to the best place to do the
best good. Her comments focused on stay-
ing positive and giving what you want to re-
ceive in behavior. She even gave us a brief,
rousing chorus of "Accentuate the Positive."
She thinks successful people surround
themselves with successful people. Anyone
who knows Raye sees a live embodiment
of her philosophy that "a positive attitude is
rewarded with a wide smile and good be-
havior."
Teresa Chandler's volunteer efforts are
too numerous to list. As an employee of Sea-
coast National Bank and formerly Big Lake
National, Teresa is grateful to the bank for
helping her realize her desire to contribute
to her community. She started her altruis-

a plaque.


tic endeavors in 2004 at a bank function to
raise money for Hurricane Katrina relief. The
event raised $20,000 for the American Red
Cross. She says that the thrill of that success
made her want more. Her fundraising activi-
ties in Okeechobee are legendary. She, too,
believes in focusing on the positive. She even
writes thank you letters to companies whose
employees have given good service. She be-
lieves that good service should be rewarded.
Most recently, Teresa has organized the teen
dances that provide adolescents safe, well-


chaperoned places to enjoy themselves
while helping to raise money for charitable
causes. A group is now raising money for a
hospital in Tampa that treats burn victims
and many of the youngsters will be taking a
field trip to tour the hospital to see how their
fundraising helps others.
Congratulations to these four women
who represent the fine caliber of business
women in Okeechobee. Thanks to all the
guests who shared this celebration of Wom-
en of Distinction.
