Little fisherman
The fish don't stand a chance with this little fisherman's enthusiasm. Blaine Westbrook, age 5,
of Okeechobee, enjoyed a day of free fishing at Sunday's Kids Day at the Ft. Drum Crystal Mine.
Kids and their families could also dig for crystals and search for fossils at the all-day event.
Youngsters who like to fish will have another fun opportunity this coming Sunday at the Agri-
Civic Center, on State Road 710, where the Taylor Creek Bass Club will host their annual free
Kids Fishing Tournament from 1 to 3 p.m. Applications are available at the Okeechobee News
office, 107 SW 17th Street. For more information, see page 6.

"It's kind of a waiting game,"
Mitch Smeykal, preparedness
and response coordinator for the
Okeechobee County Health De
apartment said of receiving the vac-
cine for HIN1.
The vaccine is only being deliv
ered in small quantities at a time
and the numbers keep changing,
Mr. Smeykal said. Therefore, plans
to provide mass inoculations have
been delayed. He said that be-
cause the vaccine is being received
in "drips and drabbles" it is being
given to providers.
Mr. Smeykal said they were
not giving out the names of those
providers in order to prevent then
from being swamped.
These providers are currently
giving the vaccine to high risk pa-
tients such as pregnant women,
health care workers, children with
chronic medical conditions and
adults with asthma. Mr. Smeykal
said there are about 3,800 high risk
patients in the county. After the
high risk people are vaccinated,
the general population will be vac-
cinated.
Mr. Smeykal said that as soon
as the vaccine is received in large
enough quantities, mass vaccina-
tions will begin. Because of ever
changing conditions he could not
predict when that would be. He

Report: OCSO K-9 finds coke on car


By Eric Kopp
Oeechobee News
A motorist stopped for speeding was ar-
rested on a felony drug charge when suspect-
ed crack cocaine was found in the trunk area
of his car, stated a deputy's report.
James Pierre Estinvil, 25, Sunrise Blvd.,
Fort Pierce, was arrested Thursday, Oct. 15,
on a felony charge of pos-
session of cocaine. He was
also arrested on a misde-
meanor charge of posses-
sion of marijuana under 20
grams.
Estinvil was booked
into the Okeechobee
County Jail under a bond
of $11,000.
An arrest report by JamesPierre
Deputy Adrian Rogers, of Jamesiilerre
the Okeechobee Coun-Estinvil
ty Sheriff's Office (OCSO), states that he
stopped Estinvil for driving at a speed of 25
mph in a posted 15 mph school zone. The
report also states that the man was not wear-
ing his seat belt.


As the deputy was writing Estinvil warn-
ing citations a detective from the Okeecho-
bee Narcotics Task Force arrived and, after
speaking with Estinvil, was given permission
search the man's blue Chevrolet automobile.
During that search the detective allegedly
found pieces of a green leafy substance on
the driver's seat. When field tested, the sub-
stance indicated a positive result for the pres-
ence of marijuana.
OCSO K-9 Widgen was then allowed to
perform an exterior sniff of the car and alert-
ed to the trunk, the report continued.
That area of the car was then searched
and a small plastic tube was found behind
the license tag, as well as a plastic bag that
reportedly contained a green leafy substance.
A substance found in the tube was field
tested and indicated a positive result for the
presence of cocaine, Deputy Rogers stated.
The leafy substance was also field tested and
apparently indicated a positive result for the
presence of marijuana.
The suspected crack cocaine weighed .2
grams, while the alleged marijuana found be-
hind the tag weighed about 1 gram.

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News

front seat of the 1993 black
Nissan two-door automo-
bile, while Bonilla was seat-
ed in the back of the car.
Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) K-9
Widgen arrived on scene
and during an exterior sniff
Zucic John of the vehicle alerted to the
Bonilla passenger door and floor-
board. The detective, along
with OCSO Deputy John Ashby, searched the

Poverty level
What is the poverty level? The court-
house uses poverty level to determine if you
can have a public defender. Social Security
uses this poverty level as a base for the So-
cial Security checks no one will receive less
then poverty level funds. Why are there two
different levels of poverty in these two gov-
ernment agencies?
The following information is from the
Department of Health and Human Services
web site: The 2009 Poverty Guidelines for
the 48 Contiguous States and the District of
Columbia:
Persons in family-- Poverty guideline
1 $10,830
2 $14,570
3 $18,310
4 $22,050
5 $25,790
6 $29,530
7 $33,270
8 $37,010
For families with more than 8 persons,
add $3,740 for each additional person. I've
always had trouble with this. I can't even
begin to imagine how difficult it might be
for a family of four to get by on $22,050. My
opinion is that the "poverty level" should be
a fair amount higher.
The economy is so bad that I got a pre-
declined credit card in the mail.
It's so bad, I ordered a burger at Mac-
donalds and the kid behind the counter
asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"
The economy is so bad that CEO's are
now playing miniature golf.

Remember when?
Sometime I really miss the ole Okeecho-
bee. You didn't have to lock your house
could leave your keys in your cars, people
can't believe when I tell them how it used
to be.
I remember walking to the Tastee Freez
from the Elementary and Jr. High school.
SWEET.
The drive in was always called a pas-
ture because it was grass, no cement. I was
talking to a friend yesterday about how it
used to be, you could ride your bicycle all
over town or walk and your parents never
had to worry about you, and you didn't dare
do anything wrong because it would get
back to your parents. Those were the good
ole days.

Ghost hunters
In regard to the ghost hunters story, I
have read quite a bit about the Ashley gang
and I don't recall them ever robbing a bank
in Okeechobee, much less losing a gang
member during such a robbery. If there is
a ghost, I don't think it could be someone
from the Ashley gang. Maybe a local histo-
rian can enlighten us on that one.
Are there any other haunted places in
Okeechobee? I have read that the Clewiston
Inn in Clewiston is supposed to be haunted.
Does anyone have any local ghost stories?

Blood donors helped brother
I want to thank those who unselfishly
donated blood and who will do so at the
Okeechobee Blood Roundup in November.
These are the people who have helped my
brother. Jimmy Alderman is a Florida native
and Okeechobee resident. Jimmy was living
in Las Vegas when he unexpectedly devel-
oped kidney problems and last November
had to have a kidney removed due to cancer.
He had been scheduled to have work on his
heart, but was too weak and had no chemo
follow-up. Blood transfusions helped.



Day Saints, 310 S.W. Sixth St. Anyone interest-
ed in finding who your ancestors are is welcome
to attend. There is Census, IGI (International
Genealogical Index), Social Security Death Index
and military information available. For informa-
tion, call The Family History Center at 863-763-
6510 or Richard Smith at 863-261-5706 for spe-
cial appointments.

Teacher investigated; no charges filed


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A teacher at Okeechobee High School
will not be criminally charged for grabbing
one of his students by the arm because he
was "cutting up" in class.
According to a report by School Resource
Officer Deputy Sergeant Mark Roberts, of
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO), the 15-year-old boy's mother filed
a complaint against the teacher. But, con-
tinued the report, the teacher acted within
the law on Monday, Oct. 12, and will not be
charged with battery.
"Based on my investigation I do not find
sufficient information or evidence to sup-
port filing any criminal charge or charges ...
for the allegations of either battery or child
abuse, or any other criminal act," Sgt. Rob-
erts wrote in his report.
According to a law known as "loco par-
entis," the teacher had the lawful right to
grab the boy's arm as a means of control-
ling him.
"That (loco parents) basically means 'in
place of the parent,'" explained Assistant
State Attorney Ashley Albright, who was
speaking only about the law and not the in-
cident. "If a parent spanks a child it is not
battery because they have the right to disci-
pline the child. Certain people are given that
same category, such as teachers and guard-
ians."
Mr. Albright, the supervising attorney in
the State Attorney's Office in Okeechobee,
said while disciplining a child is legal, the
methods used cannot be excessive.
The report by Sgt. Roberts states that
the boy admits to "cutting up in class" and
"laughing at a joke somebody told." Appar-
ently, continued the teen, he was "laughing
too much" because the teacher asked the
student to step outside. Once outside, the
teacher reportedly grabbed the boy's arm.
According to the teen's statement, the
teacher then reportedly told him: "If you are
trying to challenge me, I can put you on the
ground so you can't get back up."
The report not only states that there were
no witnesses to the incident, but that the
teacher "... couldn't remember his exact
words to ... and at the moment couldn't re-
member if he had said he would put him on
the ground or not."
When asked if issuing such a statement
would be a violation of law, Mr. Albright said
the only applicable criminal charge would
be assault.
"But, that would require a direct threat
and it cannot be conditional or predicated
on future action," he explained.
Again, he was not commenting on a
specific event but rather a hypothetical situ-
ation.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patricia
Cooper said Tuesday, Oct. 20, when she
learned about the incident both law enforce-
ment and the Department of Children and
Families (DCF) were notified.
"It was called in to DCF and law enforce-
ment and there was no finding that this con-
stituted institutional child abuse," she said.
Dr. Cooper said, under school policy, if
a teacher puts their hands on a student to
control the student so that they don't hurt


themselves or other students then that is
"acceptable behavior."
"But, it can't be done unless there is
cause to do it," she continued. "It can't be
done because a teacher is upset with the
student. It has to be done according to what
we're allowed to do under the statute."
On Monday, Oct. 19, Dr. Cooper spoke
with and counseled the teacher.
"We're going to keep an eye on the situa-
tion and, hopefully, there will be no need to
go any further," said Dr. Cooper. "You hope
your words are taken to heart and that it
doesn't happen again."
But for the boy's mother, counseling the
teacher is not enough. She said she has tried
to speak with OHS officials about the situa-
tion but her calls have not been returned.
"I do not think he should be in the school
system," said the teen's mother in a phone
interview Tuesday.
Her son needs this class because it will
help him fulfill his future plans.
"I've thought about pulling my son out of
class, but I don't think my son should suffer
because that teacher cannot control him-
self," she said.
The mother went on to say that she plans
to get on the agenda and address the school
board at their next meeting. She wants the
board to know how upset she is, and that
something should be done about the teach-
er.
"I don't think he should be a teacher,"
she said.
At this point, Dr. Cooper said there really
isn't anything else the school board can do.
"With nothing to go on there's nothing
further I can do, in terms of discipline," she
said.

Yearling soccer team has unbeaten seasons


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Storm Grove gave Yearling Middle
School's soccer team a scare in the first half
as they played the role of spoiler in Yearling's
attempt to have their first ever undefeated
soccer team Monday.
Storm Grove led 1-0 at the half after a
goal by Landon Kirby and some excellent
goal keeping from lan Nottage.
Yearling didn't let down and they erupted
for five goals after halftime to secure their

Athletic Director Dylan Tedders said the

ers told me all year they want to go unde-
feated. We are proud of them. They put in
some hard work, and finished it up when it
got tough and all the teams were gunning
for them."


Tedders said the soccer team wanted a
banner put up in the gym, and they definitely
earned that.
He stated club soccer and club volleyball
have definitely helped the middle school
programs, "Nobody beat the team and they
should be proud, and we're proud," he
said.
Fullback Salvador Gonzales said being un-
defeated is something that makes the team
proud. "It feels really good. It feels good to
finally win," he said.
Even when they fell behind, Gonzales
said the team didn't feel pressure. He said
Storm Grove was a strong opponent.
Julio Olvera said his team played well
and it was a match to remember, "For me,
it makes me feel proud of everybody on

Boys golf returns to regional


Girls golf team finishes

fourth at district tournament


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee's boys golf team will return
to the regional golf tournament for the sec-
ond straight year.
The boys finished third at the District 17-
2A tournament Monday at Eagle Marsh Golf
Club with a score of 328.
Richard Donegan, who qualified as an
individual, shot 79, to lead Okeechobee. Tim
Gray shot an 80 for the Brahmans. Mike Wat-
son shot 84 and Kodi Stephen 85. Tyler Platt
shot 94. Eagle Marsh is a par 72.
Martin County finished first with a team
score of 304, and Sebastian River was second
with a score of 325.
Brahman Coach Mark Ward said the con-
ditions were tough with cold temperatures in
the 50s, and a howling wind in the morning.
He stated the kids had to make adjustments
due to the weather. "Overall they stuck with
their game plan. The biggest thing we told
them was not to get greedy and take what
the course gave them. I told them not to put
added pressure on themselves."
Okeechobee had to rally in the back nine


to defeat Vero Beach by four strokes. He not-
ed they had to wait over an hour to get the
final results and it was kind of nerve wracking
for his team.
"Once again we're moving to the regional.
It's just another good day in the Brahman na-
tion."
Ward noted they don't just want to show
up at the regional. He thinks the team has the
talent to move even further. "We've got a little
taste from last year. We're hoping to go up
there and put some numbers up and make
it to state."
Ward thanked the Okeechobee Golf and
Country Club and their staff, golf pro Terry
Lanman, and Wendy Woodham and staff at
the KOA for their support of the golf team this
year.
"They are the biggest edge for our kids as
they get to play for free on those courses. It is
great to see kids support the kids day in and
day out. I see golf maintaining a high stan-
dard."
The regional tournament begins next
Monday, Oct. 26, at the Duran Country Club
in Viera.

Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School Lady Brah-
mans finished fourth behind Vero Beach, Jens-
en Beach and Martin County at the District 17-
2A tournament Monday at the Martin County
Golf and Country Club.
Okeechobee shot 438, well back in the
pack, but still a great improvement over recent
years.
"I'm pleased. Fourth place shows that
we're not no slouch," Coach Lonnie Sears
said, "If we finish third we move on."
Paige Arnold had an off day, as the senior
shot 117 on the par 73 course. Some of the
younger kids did well. Kailey Hoover shot 104
and Samantha Harrell shot 105. Rachel Rabon
shot 112.


Sears said Arnold struggled a bit, but he
was definitely pleased with her season. He said
Rabon struck the ball very well but left a lot of
putts on the green she could have made.
Hoover qualified to play in the regional
next week.
Sears said a number of the girls will return
next year and he predicted the program is defi-
nitely headed in the right direction, "This will
make my job harder next year. I actually have
a team now. We will have to have girls com-
pete for spots and it will be a battle. I've never
had that before," he said.
Okeechobee finished ahead of South Fork,
Fort Pierce Central, St. Lucie West Centennial,
Sebastian River and Treasure Coast in the dis-
trict tournament.

come a new rival for the Yearlings.
"I was kind of disappointed," he said. "I
had several of these (Brighton) girls in club.
They played much better. They played well
today. That's a pretty good bunch there.
They played hard. I was impressed."
Conrad said the first match down in
Brighton was controlled by Yearling. He said
the younger Seminoles might have been a
little skittish. This time they looked ready.
"It's good to see that they are getting
some good coaching, I was impressed with
how well they played. It's nice that we have
this much talent in the area," he said.
Yearling mostly used seldom used re-
serves that haven't played in recent matches.
Conrad said their rust showed in the results.
Seminoles Coach Pam Matthews said her

year but they have managed a (5-5) record
playing against older teams. She noted com-
ing to play at Yearling was a special experi-
ence for her team.
"They love playing against their friends
and they did a good job," she said. "Their
goal was to defeat the undefeated team. We
didn't quite do that but we did a very good
job and kept it close."


Next year the Brighton Charter School
plans to add seventh and eighth grade to the
school. Matthews said she feels the program
is headed in the right direction.
"The program is building. This is our first
year and we only have sixth graders. We will
have older players next year," she said.
Yearling wraps up their season with a
home match on Monday.

Wild mustangs dumped near Basinger


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
A criminal investigation is underway to
determine who dumped 14 or more mus-
tangs on land owned by the South Florida
Water Management District in the area near
Micco Bluff and the Kissimmee River.
District spokesman Randy Smith said
hunters and fishermen first reported seeing
the wild horses in the area.

was hoping to be able to provide mass vac-
cinations by the start of the new year and
certainly by the time flu season hits in Feb-
ruary.
The delay is caused by the manufacturer
and even the military is having trouble get-
ting vaccine, he said. Some of the vaccine
being received now is in the form of spray
and some in the form of shots. The propor-
tion of each is uncertain. That complicates

Okeechobee
Forecast
Today: Mostly cloudy, with a high near
86 and a 20 percent chance of showers.
Winds will be from the east between 10 and
15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a low
around 69 and winds from the east north-
east between 5 and 10 mph.
Extended Forecast
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a high
near 85 and a 20 percent chance of showers.
Winds will be from the east around 5 mph.
Thursday night: Partly cloudy with a
low around 69 and calm winds becoming
northeast around 5 mph.
Friday: Mostly cloudy with a slight
chance of thunderstorms and a high near
89. Winds will be from the northeast around
5 mph.
Friday night: Mostly cloudy with a low
around 69 and winds from the east north-
east around 5 mph becoming south.


The mustangs were probably dumped
off in mid September, district officials said.
Smith said the horses were a bit skittish
and not that easy to capture,
"They are smarter than you think, they've
been out there for a few weeks," he said.
"Actually, the river basin and pasture land is
perfect for them."
Mr. Smith mentioned that there is plenty
of water and plant life for the horses to sur-
vive on. He said the horses are currently in
good shape.


the issue because some people, for vari-
ous reasons, cannot receive the mist. Mr.
Smeykal said those who had the flu shot
for seasonal flu must wait 28 days to take
the mist for H 1N 1. However, that will not be
a problem for most people since it will be
more than 28 days before they can get the
vaccine.
The symptoms of HIN1 are similar to
the symptoms of regular human flu and in-
clude fever, cough, sore throat, body aches,
headache, chills and fatigue. In fact, without
a laboratory test, it is not possible to dis-
tinguish between the two. Therefore, Mr.
Smeykal advises anyone who experiences
flu like symptoms to see a doctor with 24 to
48 hours.
To help prevent the spread of HINI and
regular seasonal flu, community members
are advised to wash their hands often, cover
coughs with a tissue or a sleeve, and stay
home if you are sick. Washing hands with
soap and water is the preferred method of
sanitizing your hands. Alcohol-based hand
sanitizers are also effective.
Avoiding touching your mouth, nose and
eyes. Don't share items such as cigarettes,
towels, lipstick, toys or anything else that
might be contaminated with germs. Don't
share food, utensils or beverages with oth-
ers.

He said there were other Mustangs
dumped in the Hendry County area, perhaps
by the same person or persons.
"The thought is that the original owner
of these horses passed away and the family
either didn't know how to care for them, or
didn't want to," Mr. Smith said.
Okeechobee Sheriff's Office Public In-
formation Officer Detective Ted Van De-
man said the investigation is active and he
couldn't release many details.


Emergency medical care should be se-
cured if a child experiences any of the fol-
lowing symptoms: fast breathing or trouble
breathing, bluish skin color, not drinking
enough fluids, not waking up or not inter-
acting, being so irritable the child does not
want to be held, flu-like symptoms improve
but then return with fever and worse cough,
fever with a rash.
In adults the warming signs that indicate
urgent medical attention include: difficulty
breathing or shortness of breath, pain or
pressure in the chest or abdomen, sudden
dizziness, confusion, severe or persistent
vomiting. "We are seeing occasional cases
of HIN1 in this county," Mr. Smeykal said.
There has only been one person hospital-
ized in Okeechobee County. He added that
two other county residents were treated out-
side the county.
The Okeechobee County School System


"Currently our Agriculture Deputies are
feeding the horses in an attempt to tame
them enough to capture them," he said.
Once captured, the mustangs will be
checked by a veterinarian. They likely will be
housed at the Okeechobee rodeo grounds
or the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center.
"After a time period, prescribed by law
has passed, the horses will be auctioned off
to the public," Detective Van Deman added.


has only had one verified case of H N1 since
school started.
As of Oct. 13 the Florida Department of
Health reported that Highlands County had
four people hospitalized, Osceola County
had five, Indian River County had two, Mar-
tin County had three and Palm Beach Coun-
ty had 71.
As of Oct. 13 the state health department
reported six deaths due to HINI in Palm
Beach County, St. Lucie County had report-
ed four deaths and Highlands and Osceola
counties had each reported one death.
All but 15 of Florida's 67 counties had re-
ported some type of H IN activity.

VA extends

"Agent Orange"

benefits to

more veterans
WASHINGTON -Relying on an inde
pendent study by the Institute of Medicine
(IOM), Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K.
Shinseki decided to establish a service-con-
nection for Vietnam Veterans with three spe-
cific illnesses based on the latest evidence of
an association with the herbicides referred
to Agent Orange.
The illnesses affected by the recent deci-
sion are B cell leukemias, such as hairy cell
leukemia; Parkinson's disease; and ischemic
heart disease.
Used in Vietnam to defoliate trees and
remove concealment for the enemy, Agent
Orange left a legacy of suffering and disabil-
ity that continues to the present. Between
January 1965 and April 1970, an estimated
2.6 million military personnel who served
in Vietnam were potentially exposed to
sprayed Agent Orange.
In practical terms, Veterans who served
in Vietnam during the war and who have a
"presumed" illness don't have to prove an
association between their illnesses and their
military service. This "presumption" simpli-
fies and speeds up the application process
for benefits.
The Secretary's decision brings to 15 the
number of presumed illnesses recognized
by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
"We must do better reviews of illnesses
that may be connected to service, and we
will," Shinseki added. "Veterans who en-
dure health problems deserve timely deci
sions based on solid evidence."
Other illnesses previously recognized un
der VAs "presumption" rule as being caused
by exposure to herbicides during the Viet
nam War are:
*Acute and Subacute Transient Periph
eral Neuropathy
AL Amyloidosis
Agent Orange 2/2/2/2
Chloracne
SChronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
*Diabetes Mellitus (Type 2)
*Hodgkin's Disease
*Multiple Myeloma
*Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda
*Prostate Cancer
*Respiratory Cancers, and
*Soft Tissue Sarcoma (other than Osteo-
sarcoma, Chondrosarcoma, Kaposi's sar-
coma, or Mesothelioma)
Additional information about Agent Or-
ange and VA's services and programs for
Veterans exposed to the chemical are avail-
able atwww.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/
agentorange.

ty Veterans' Service Officer at 863-763-8124.
