Okeechobee News
At their meeting on Tuesday,
Feb. 9 the Okeechobee Utility
Authority (OUA) Board of Direc-

a source of contention develop-
ers' agreements.
While no official action took
place, steps were taken to settle
the issue which has cost custom-

There are presently eight de-
velopers' agreements based on
the 10/20 plan in which develop-
ers agreed to make a 10 percent

Free cyber safety seminar planned by sheriff's office


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) is stepping up its efforts to protect
children from internet predators by opening


accounts on social networking sites, and of-
fering training for parents.
"The modern internet world holds many
dangers for our children," said Sheriff Paul
May. "I hope what we are doing makes their


Teacher accused of 'doctor shopping'


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A local sixth grade teacher was arrested
late last week and charged with seven counts
of doctor shopping.
Catherine Ann Jones,
43, N.W 50th Ave.,
Okeechobee, was arrested
Friday, Feb. 5, and booked
into the Okeechobee
County Jail under a bond
of $7,000. She is currently
free on bond.
Jones, a teacher at Os-Catherine Ann
ceola Middle School (OMS),Jones
has been placed on admin-
istrative leave without pay.
Dr. Patricia Cooper, superintendent of
schools, said she can only suspend Jones
until the next meeting of the Okeechobee
County School Board which will be March 9.
Dr. Cooper said she will then ask the board
to continue Jones' suspension pending the
outcome of her case in court.
Jones has taught locally for the past 12
years, Dr. Cooper said. She was currently a
language arts teacher in the Eagles pod at
OMS.


An arrest report by the Okeechobee Nar-
cotics Task Force indicates that the investiga-
tion into this case began in February of last
year after Jones received 40 hydrocodone
tablets from a local doctor on Feb. 29, 2009.
On March 6, she then went to another local
doctor and received an additional 240 hydro-
codone tablets, added the report.
From Sept. 7 through Oct. 26, 2009, Jones
allegedly went to different Okeechobee doc-
tors and received prescriptions for 540 pain
pills (oxycodone and hydrocodone).
A task force detective said all indications
are that Jones was getting the pills for her
personal use.
According to the report, the OMS teacher
received prescriptions for pain pills from
seven different doctors in Okeechobee and
used four different local pharmacies to fill
those scripts.
The detective said no legal action will be
taken against the doctors because none of
them knew that Jones was obtaining pre-
scriptions from other doctors. The detective
added that legal action will not be taken
against the pharmacies either.


world a little safer for them."
One such step is a free cyber safety train-
ing seminar for parents to be held Thursday,
Feb. 18, at the Okeechobee High School lec-
ture hall. The seminar, which is being held
with the help of Superintendent of Schools
Dr. Patricia Cooper, will begin at 7 p.m.
"We look forward to providing parents
with meaningful ways to protect our chil-
dren while still allowing them to take advan-
tage of technology for both education and
pleasure," said Dr. Cooper.
The special speaker will be Captain Wil
Hernandez from the Florida Attorney Gener-
al's Office. This seminar is also being held in
conjunction with the new cyber crime train-
ing program instituted by Florida Attorney
General Bill McCollum.
Since the OHS lecture hall has a seating
capacity of 400, parents are urged to arrive
early.
"The safety of our children is of the ut-
most importance to all of us," said Sheriff
May. "We hope that this training will be well
accepted and highly attended."
Each day 77 million children between
the ages of 10 and 17 use the internet. Not
all cyber crimes are limited to identity theft
and child pornography-1-in-7 children us-
ing the internet will be solicited in a sexual
manner.
Because of this, OCSO has opened ac-
counts on the popular social networking
sites of myspace.com, facebook and twitter.
Since children use these computer net-
working sites to meet and communicate,


internet predators will use these sites to vic-
timize children.
To help the sheriff's office prevent inter-
net crime, the parent or child can simply
make the sheriff number one on their list of
friends on these networking sites. This will
let others know that the child's parents are
involved and monitoring their child's ac-
tivities. Also, the internet predator will now
know that the child and his family have a di-
rect link to the OCSO.
The OCSO can also be found on their
networking sites at: myspace.com/okeecho-
beesheriff; facebook.com/okeechobeesher-
iff; and, twitter.com/okeesheriff.

OPINION


Public Forum/Speak Out


Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the com-
munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

Drug dealers
Teenagers who have myspace just
advertise that they are selling drugs, which
they are.
I could point out every drug dealer that
comes into my store ... and I bet they would
sell it to me, no questions asked.
Take it from someone who frequents
the halls of our high school. You could ask
any student there who is dealing and who
is on drugs and I can guarantee that they
could give one name at the very LEAST.
Yep, even those so called brighter students
who take AP and Honors classes. It is both
sad and frustrating.
My sister got a hold of pot in middle
school. She graduated top of her class. I
never did the stuff, never had a desire to. I
had one boyfriend who wanted it legalized,
but I never smoked with him and he didn't
smoke while dating me, thank God. I have
always hated the idea of drugs.
It's a shame. This town is so small and
we all know who is getting the money and
selling and growing and I'm sure a quick
call to the Sheriff's Office could get some
of those kids off the streets and get them
cleaned, but would the cops do anything?
It's not hard to figure out the kid driving the
brand new car, paying cash for everything
and smells of weed is doing something
wrong.
What is disturbing, in addition to the
use and selling of drugs, is the reluctance of
anyone to report it. If one was offered pot at
the fair, did you go directly to a phone and
report it to the police? I would bet not. Is it
because you are afraid the report would not
get any attention from them? Afraid of retali-
ation from the druggies, maybe an attempt
on your life? Both?
The parents should know if their kids
are selling drugs. They should know if the
kid suddenly has money and is buying stuff.
Open your eyes and do something about it
before your child winds up in prison.


Pageant
For all of you people who like to attend
the pageants, please have some respect as
to not talk through the whole thing. At the
Speckled Perch pageant, I could not even
hear what was going on half the time.

Census money
I believe the Census money comes
from the federal government, who loans
this money to each town and this money is
spent. It generates tax dollars. It's supposed
to insure the welfare of all the people in the
town. I wonder how much money it is per
person and where does it all go?
The Census money is used to hire
people to take the census. Those jobs were
advertised locally to anyone who wanted to
apply
The Census is required by the Consti-
tution of the United States. They can't very
well do it for free.
The money comes from the US Trea-
sury and the U. S. Taxpayers pay for it. "
TITLE 13--CENSUS, CHAPTER 1--ADMIN-
ISTRATION, SUBCHAPTER I--GENERAL
PROVISIONS, Sec. 11. Authorization of ap-
propriations: There is authorized to be ap-
propriated, out of the Treasury of the United
States, such sums as may be necessary to
carry out all provisions of this title."
*The Census spent $2.5 million on an
ad on TV during the Superbowl. The $2.5
million was for all of the people that saw
it. Isn't that, more or less, how advertising
works? The more people see it, the more
the advertising costs? I imagine that they
have some kind of advertising budget and
that the person/people in charge of oversee-
ing that budget felt that the commercial was
a worthwhile investment. I don't know if I
would agree with them. I was not privy to
the information that they were privy to, but
then who is? Isn't this a little bit like Mon-
day Morning quarterbacking?
It was a complete waste of tax payer's
money. I believe the money could have
been spent on something more worth-
while. Like maybe creating jobs or maybe
put it towards the National debt.
The Obama White House has allocat-
ed a total of $340 million on an "unprece-
dented" promotional blitz for the 2010 Cen-
sus. That's on top of $1 billion in stimulus
money siphoned off for increased Census
"public outreach" and staffing. In all, the
Census will triple its total budget from 2000
to $15 billion.

Ads for the Census have already ap-
peared during the Golden Globe awards
and will broadcast during the Daytona 500
and NCAA Final Four championships. Some
$80 million will be poured into multi-lingual
ads in 28 languages from Arabic to Yiddish.
Racial and ethnic groups have been squab-
bling over their share of the pie. The U.S.
Census is a decennial census mandated by
our constitution. Should Americans know
about it? Sure. Should the p.r. budget be-
come a bottomless slush fund in recession
times? Surely not.

Fishing
I fished a tournament today out of J&S
ramp. We all met up with 150 plus hp motors
and all the trimmings. One team showed up
with the guts to bring a canoe and a trolling
motor? Believe or not after travelling 50 +
miles the team with the canoe finished bet-
ter than my team. That's awesome. I shook
their hands and told them they ROCK. It
takes real guts to show up from out of town
with a canoe and compete with all the bass
boats around. Theywere the most polite and
best natured people I've ever met. Good for
them! It just shows me that no matter how
much money you have or don't have, you
can compete on this wonderful lake.

Teen pregnancy
Guess what? People have sex. It has
been happening for millions of years. It will
always happen as it is purely, biological.
From puberty on teens feel the need and
want to have sex, you can not stop biology.
It is ignorant to think otherwise. Education
is clearly the key but no matter how much
you have, it will never stop it from happen-
ing and in the end it is personal preference
(even if you feel one is too young to make
this decision).
The next meeting of the Teen Pregnan-
cy Prevention Task Force will be at 11:00 am
Feb. 23, in the School Board Chambers.
Education is important, but that is just
part of the answer. Keeping kids occupied
with sports, music, clubs, etc. can help keep
them out of situations they aren't ready for.
And it is always important for parents to
make sure their kids are supervised. That is
very important with pre-teens.
Why not try and have this meeting
after school when kids and other working
adults can come and express themselves?

Our Purpose...
The Okeechobee News is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a
unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a
mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the
community. Since no dividends are paid, the company
is able to thrive on profit margins below industry stan-
dards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in
Independent's mission of journalistic service,
commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of
the U.S. Constitution, and support of the community's
deliberation of public issues.

We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust
* To help our community become a better place to
live and work, through our dedication to
conscientious journalism.
* To provide the information citizens need to make
their own intelligent decisions about public issues.


Can we possibly have this during the
evening time when people aren't at work
or classes? Most people are working during
this time of the day, so your opinions dur-
ing this event would be from those without
a job or not working, like old people who
think kids should wait.
*A Teen Pregnancy Prevention meeting
sounds like an excellent idea. Especially if
people who are serious about this issue at-
tend.
According to the story in the Sunday
paper, there were 99 girls ages 15-19 who
had babies in 2008. That is a lot of teenage
moms. If you look at the MySpace pages it
seems there is no longer a stigma about it.
Considering how easily it is to obtain birth
control, some of these girls must have got-
ten pregnant on purpose. So, how does
our community convince teenage girls that
babies are not a fashion accessory and that
they should wait until they are married --
or at least in a committed relationship and
able financially to take care of a baby -- to
think about having kids?
A baby as "an accessory for teens"..
It almost seems that way in today's times.
It's really gotten out of control in these days.
I was a teen mom but it may have been a
hand full of us at the time and no younger
than about 16. Now you have 12-year-olds
pregnant or with babies already. I think so-
ciety has just accepted it for the most part.
I'm also a mom of three boys and two are
teenagers. I tell them everyday that all these
little girls want is a baby and if you're not
able to take care of one then keep your
pants up. The stories I hear my oldest son
tell me about some of the girls at the high
school are scary. I thought we were bad 15
years ago, but we have nothing on these
kids today.
If you tell your daughters they are beau-
tiful and show them their self worth, then
it's less likely for a boy to put crazy things
in their head. Moms and dads, actually take
time out of your day and ask your kids about
their life outside of the house. You'd be sur-
prised what they tell you, what they think of
you, and who they are becoming. They're
not just our kids. We may have given birth
to them and nurtured them. But they are
their own individual and their views of their
world may not be the way we see it through
our eyes. Take a look at it from their eyes...
We need to convince these girls that
giving the baby up for adoption to a good
home is sometimes the best choice for all.


* To report the news with honesty, accuracy,
purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity,
fearlessness and compassion.
* To use our opinion pages to facilitate community
debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions.
* To disclose our own conflicts of interest or
potential conflicts to our readers.
* To correct our errors and to give each correction
the prominence it deserves.
* To provide a right to reply to those we write about.

Letters to the Editor


Speckled Perch Festival
pageant enjoyed
Another year to bless our hearts with the
beauty of children as they crossed the stage
for the 42nd annual Speckled Perch pag-
eant.
The Chamber did again another fine job
of putting the pageant together, with lovely
music, happy children and loving parents.
Beautiful flowers for the contestants, sashes
for the second and third runners up, the
stage was really pretty for any photographs
being taken.
The Freshman campus turned out to be
an excellent choice of location, very nice
lighting, and a spot light from above.
I did not notice any of the children be-
ing super-stressed, as everyone seemed to
genuinely have a wonderful time.
Yes, they are competitive, but so cordial
in it, too.
It seems like every year I enjoy this event
more than I did last time. How can that be?
It is truly a pleasure to see the little ones in
their youth, with great expectations of win-


ning while they wave to mom and dad,
along with other family and friends in the
audience.
I just would like to thank the community
for giving me the opportunity of being there,
it is a great feeling to be with the organiza-
tion, doing a service, while enjoying the pro-
cess of pageantry.
Thank you and God Bless,
Miss Bobbi Poole

Highway fatalities
remembered
On Feb. 4, 1990, my daughter and her
companion were killed instantly on Route
710 just south of the city of Okeechobee.
An unlicensed van driver was passing in the
southbound lane with 18 passengers (men,
women and minor children) on board --
none were badly hurt.
Nancy Ellen Johnson and Mark Shau-
berger would not see another day.
After 20 years, I again wish to thank
some of the people who responded to this
accident -- Okeechobee Fire Rescue/Fire De-
partment, Sheriff's Department (especially


Officer D. Busbee), Haisley Funeral Home
of Fort Pierce and many passers-by and
neighbors. The FDOT erected and maintain
a "Drive Safely" sign on the west side. A spe-
cial thank you goes to the persons who leave
small mementos/decorations at the sign. It is
appreciated.


Upon request, the Florida Department of
Transportation will erect a similar sign for
your deceased loved one. Nancy and Mark
will be forever in our hearts and minds.

victims," Mrs. Alexander said since she her-
self is a victim of domestic abuse. She used
to volunteer at the battered women's shelter
operated by Martha's House. She went back
recently to visit her former coworkers who
told her about the opening. That began a
string of circumstances that convinced her
that moving to Martha's House would be the
right thing to do.
The new director is no stranger to help-
ing people solve their problems. She has 23
years experience in human services and a
master's degree in mental health counsel-
ing. She came to Martha's House from Level
10, before that she had worked at Hospice of
Okeechobee, Eckard's Youth Development
Center and Vision Quest.
In addition to providing a temporary
residence for women and children who are
victims of domestic abuse, Martha's House
provides other needed services. The orga-
nization sponsors various support groups.
Among other things they contract with a
local attorney to provide legal services and
they also contract with a mental health
counselor.
"We're not just a domestic violence agen-
cy," Mrs. Alexander said. One of her goals is
to educate the public about the services pro-
vided by Martha's House. She is also inter-
ested in sponsoring fund raising activities.
Future plans include having a program
for men who are victims of domestic abuse
and even a shelter for men.

Martha's House is looking for board

of things such as helping with yard sales,
reading to the children in the shelter, or
teaching arts and crafts.
Mrs. Alexander praised the staff of the
shelter saying they were so dedicated she
had to tell them not to come in on their days
off.
"The shelter is home," she said in de-
scribing the atmosphere.

Okeechobee High School built a 36-point
lead against Moore Haven and then coasted
the rest of the way as the boys basketball
team won their senior night game, 65-45 on
Friday.
Senior night was a special night for the
team as all but one of the Brahmans graduate
this year.
Coach Bryan Van Camp said he really en-
joyed working with this group of players this
year, "It's been an absolute honor and deep
privilege to coach these kids this year. They're
a great group of guys and they have a lot to
look forward to in their lives after basket-
ball."
Seniors this year included Matt Skipper,
Austin Willard, Ryan Osceola, Duelle Gore,
Troy Harper Jr., Jonathan Hudoff, Chris
Shanks, Brian Rose, Aaron Suarez, and Ricky
Nieto.
Against Moore Haven, Okeechobee
jumped out to a commanding lead thanks to
some good outside shooting. Okeechobee hit
nine three point baskets in the game.
Harper led the Brahmans with 16 points
which included a slam dunk at the buzzer. He
said senior night was all it was supposed to
be, "It was wonderful. We are a good team
this year. Hopefully at districts we'll do better
and take it all the way to state."
Harper said he was more than happy to
give the fans a dunk to finish off the regular
season. He had a dunk at the buzzer against
South Fork on Monday. "I know the fans
wanted it. I had to give it to them before the


end of the season. I wanted to do something
for the crowd."
Nieto, who scored 11 points against the
Terriers, said senior night was a bittersweet
moment for the team as most of the guys
have played together since seventh grade.
"It's sad, but we tried to have fun tonight," he
said. "We are confident that we are a good
competitive game. Come districts we will
come out hard."
Hudoff, who worked hard to become a
starter this year at the power forward posi-
tion, said senior night was a time to celebrate
everyone's careers. "Everybody had a good
time," he said. "I tried to work hard this year.
It's a group effort. We have two groups and
each group is evenly matched."
Okeechobee led 22-8 after the first quarter
and held a 44-17 advantage at the half.
After Okeechobee built a 55-19 lead in the
third quarter, Moore Haven went on a 13-0
run, mostly fueled by Fred Hall, who had a
game high 21 points. Okeechobee still led 55-
33 after three quarters.
"It was a really good first half," Van Camp
said, "There was not a lot of defense in the
second half. It was senior night and guys were
trying to build memories and get a dunk."
Van Camp said his team will be back to
business this week as they will compete in the
District 14-4A tournament at Ft. Pierce Cen-
tral. Okeechobee faces Suncoast on Wednes-
day night at 7 p.m. If they win the Brahmans
match up against the host Cobras on Friday
night at 7 p.m., "We're going to be focused.
It's a revenge game. Suncoast beat us at their
place and really took it to us. We'll be ready
on a neutral floor. We'll come in and play
hard," he added.

Brahman wrestling team sends 10 to regional


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Saturday was a rough day for the team as
a whole, but most of the Brahman wrestlers
did well enough to qualify for this weekend's
regional tournament in Jensen Beach.
Okeechobee finished 4th in the 2A-Dis-
trict 14 tournament at Martin County High
School. Jensen Beach won the champion-
ship while Fort Pierce Central took second
and surprising South Fork claimed third.
Donald Bryan, who competed at 145
pounds, kind of symbolized how Okeecho-
bee's day went. The young man earned a trip
in the finals in his weight class with two vic-
tories but couldn't wrestle because he broke
his hand during the second match. It was a
disappointing turn of events for Bryan, who
qualified for regional, but won't be able to
wrestle. "I'm really disappointed. Last year
I lost at districts and I had a tough weight
class this year."
Bryan said he was disappointed because
he didn't get the chance to be a district
champion. His hand was placed in a cast
Saturday and he'll be out for the rest of the
year. He defeated Paul Thibedeau of Fort
Pierce Central despite the injury he suffered
during the match.
"There wasn't much to do at that point. I
wasn't going to give up. It hurt, but I finished
the match," he added.
Bryan does have his senior year left and
he plans to rededicate himself with wrestling
camps in the off season and his goal will be
to win the district title next year.


Josh Gruber also had an emotional day
as he tried to defend his district champion-
ship. He defeated Matthew Wisehaupt of
South Fork and Alex Anderson of Fort Pierce
Central, but fell to Mike Fleming of Jensen
Beach in the final, 2-0.
Several Brahmans took third place in
their weight classes. Jonathan Kemp, who
just started wrestling a few months ago,
took third place in the 189 pound division.
Kemp said he got into wrestling to help him
with football, "I'm satisfied with today. I've
never wrestled in my life before, so I can out,
gained some experience, and qualified for
the regional."
Kemp said wrestling will keep him in
shape and help him become a more all
around athlete.
Vance Wilkerson was just a point away
from reaching the finals. He lost to Don-
tavious Gardenhire in a tough match but
rebounded to dominate Joel Leone of South
Fork, 18-2, to claim third place.
"I lost the first match by one point. Last
year I didn't make the regional so I can't wait
to see how it turns out this year. I'll give it my
best shot," he said.
Zac Griffith took third place at 215
pounds. He defeated James Smallwood of
Jensen Beach after narrowly avoiding a pin
fall defeat. "I could have done better. I got
caught in a head throw, but I just fought
through it until the whistle blew. That is
what wrestling is all about. Anything can
happen at any time."
This is Griffith's first trip to the regional.


He is a senior this year. He was injured be-
fore last year's district tournament.
Harrison O'Connor took fourth place in
the heavyweight division. He gave up at least
50 pounds to his opponents. He lost to Mike
Chappelle of Jensen Beach 8-2 in the conso-
lation final.
Leonel Ruiz finished fourth at 171 pounds.
He suffered an ankle injury and was not at

his best when he lost to Rodney Matthieu
of Fort Pierce and Gabe Barletta of Martin
County.
Chris Bleakley finished fourth at 135
pounds. He lost to Cameron Lacerra of
South Fork in the consolation finals.
Ryan Hagan finished fourth in the 112
pound division. He defeated Kyle Blair of
South Fork but lost to Reid Karraker of Mar-
tin County High School.
Alex Buck had an exciting afternoon as
he finished in fourth place in the 152 pound
weight class. Buck defeated Jon Rivera of
Martin County but lost to Luttere Eglaus of
Fort Pierce Central, 12-10 in overtime in the
consolation finals.

fiscal year 2008, and annual payments of 20
percent for fiscal years 2009 through 2012.
The annual payments were to be in the form
of assessments on their property tax bills.
Of those developers, Northshore Village,
Land Ventures of America, Royal Profes-
sional Builders and Stephen E. Myers Sr. did
not pay their 2008 tax bill. Freshwater Devel-
opment Company, Awesome Ranch, LLC,
15th Street Homes, LLC and Montebello 13,
LLC are up to date on their payments. For
fiscal year 2009 OUA's total payments from
developers agreements were to be $1.4 mil-
lion. This income was incorporated in the
budget. The utility claims that because de-
velopers defaulted on their payments, OUA
was forced to raise its rates to make up the
difference.
Awesome Ranch offered a proposal
whereby the developer would pay $101,850
for 2009 and the same amount for 2010 and
then make payments of $203,700 for 2011
through 2015. This would add up to the
same amount as the remaining required
payments under the original developers'
agreement which was scheduled to be paid
off in fiscal year 2012.
Freshwater Development Corporation
requested a three year delay in making pay-
ments. Under their proposal no fees would
be due for 2009, 2010 or 2011. The three an-
nual $75,800 payments that they currently
owe would be paid in 2012, 2013 and 2014.


PILLS
Continued From Page 1
and, after receiving consent, began to search
the vehicle. The detective reportedly found
225 pills, weighing approximately 28 grams,
in a speaker box in the back seat.
The pills were identified as oxycodone
tablets, stated a task force detective. Oxy-
codone is an opioid and a powerful pain
killer.
Another detective with the task force said
if purchased on the street in bulk in Palm
Beach County, oxycodone pills normally sell
for $8 each. In Okeechobee County they go
for $10 each if purchased in bulk, or $15 per
pill if purchased one pill at a time. Bulk, ex-
plained the detective, is 10 pills or more.


A third proposal was offered by 15th
Street Homes, the developer of The Lake-
house. This developer requested ten pay-
ments instead of the five originally required.
The board was divided on its response to
these proposals.
"I think we ought to do everything we
can to help these developers, stated board
member Carl Leonard. "We are going to pay
whether they pay anything or not."
Devin Maxwell was of the opinion that
the board needed to distinguish between
developers that are paying and "those who
hired lawyers to send us mean letters." He
was referring to Northside Village, Land Ven-
tures and Stephen E. Myers, Sr. At the last
board meeting, members learned through
attorney's letters that those developers in-
tended to go to court to contest the validity
of their developer's agreements.
"I don't think current rate payers should
have to bear the burden," Tonmmy Hoover
said.
"We can't turn anyone away who wants
to make payments," said board member
Steve Nelson, "We have to bend."
Board attorney Tom Conley advised
against making different arrangements with
different developers. John Hayford, the util-
ity's executive director agreed with being
consistent in dealing with all the develop-
ers.
"We are acknowledging the times as they
are and that Awesome Ranch still wants to
work with OUA," stated Dennis Corrick, at-
torney for Awesome Ranch.
In the case of Awesome Ranch, wastewa-
ter connections are contingent upon OUA's


Also found in the speaker box was a
digital scale with a residue that, when field
tested, indicated a positive result for the
presence of cocaine.
Neither Salazar nor Arellano had a pre-
scription for the pills, said the detective.
A records check indicated that Salazar
was arrested in 2007 on a felony charge
of possession of marijuana over 20 grams
and later sentenced to nine months in the
county jail. He was then found guilty on
Nov. 9, 2009, of felony battery and was sub-
sequently sentenced to four months in the
county jail. Jail records indicate that he was
released Jan. 15, 2010.
The arrest report stated that Salazar was
stopped for traveling at a speed of 68 mph in
a 60 mph zone. However, the report did not
state if Salazar was issued a traffic citation
for speeding or the window tint violation.


unbuilt eastside force main.
"We couldn't hook up today, if we chose
to," he contended. He said that other devel-
opers could hook up today if they so desired.
Therefore, he requested to be treated differ-
ently from the other developers.
"Whatever comes out of the mix for one
could set a standard," was the opinion of Mr.
Conley. "The most lenient proposal should
prevail."
Thomas Fleming, representing Freshwa-
ter stated that OUA would receive $10 mil-
lion in revenue from Freshwater in its first 10
years of existence.
"Each developer's situation is different,"
Mr. Fleming said. "They are all in varying lev-
els of distress."
After lengthy discussion, the board took
no action on any of the proposals. They
asked staff to work out an acceptable solu-
tion. Specifically they authorized Mr. Conley
and Mr. Hayford and the developers who
were contesting their developers' agree-
ments to meet with an arbitrator to try to
come up with a nonbinding agreement
which would have to be approved by the
board.
In a related matter, the board authorized
payment of the $5,715.94 January invoice
from the law firm of Melville & Sowerby for
legal work done in dealing with the contest-
ing developers.

Commission

plans new EOC

ground breaking

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In what appears from the agenda to be a
short, routine meting, Okeechobee County
Commissioners will be asked to show their
commitment to the county's youth. The
commission will meet at 9a.m. Thursday, in
the Okeechobee County Health Department
Auditorium, 1728 N.W Ninth Ave.
They will be asked to approve the 2010
Youth Engaged in Services (YES) Program.
The parks and recreation department wants
to sponsor this program for youth between
the ages of 15 to 18. The five-week program
will include various recreation and learning
activities, guest speakers and field trips to as-
sist local service organizations. Participants
would pay $100 to off-set staff and admin-
istrative expenses. Anticipated grant money
from the Children's Services Council would
fund the balance of the program.
Commissioners are also scheduled to
take part in the noon ground breaking cer-
emony for the new Emergency Operations
Center near Okeechobee County Fire/Res-
cue Station 1. In other action, the board is
scheduled to hold an executive session con-
cerning pending litigation with American
Drilling and the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection.

In 2009, Florida ranked first among par-
ticipating states and provinces in reporting
the most birds. Clewiston, just south of Lake
Okeechobee, was among the top 10 locali-
ties in reporting the greatest number of indi-

"participants turned in more than 93,600
checklists online, creating the continent's
largest instantaneous snapshot of bird pop-
ulations ever recorded," according to event
organizers.

District is steadily increasing recreational
access to public lands while continuing to
manage them to support environmental
restoration, water supply, water quality and

teen pregnancy information


The March of Dimes is the
leading nonprofit organization
for pregnancy and baby health.
The March of Dimes is dedicated
to improving the health of ba-
bies by preventing birth defects,
premature birth and infant mor-
tality. In addition to research,
the March of Dimes supplies
information on a wide range of
preconception, perinatal and
genetic topics. This article will
cover issues specific to teen
pregnancies.
Teenage birth rates in the
United States are high, exceeding
those in most developed coun-
tries. High teen birth rates are an
important concern because teen
mothers and their babies face
increased risks to their health,
and their opportunities to build
a future are diminished. Here are
some important facts about teen
pregnancy:
About 3 in 10 teenage girls
become pregnant at least once
before age 20.
About 1 in 4 teen mothers un-
der age 18 have a second baby
within 2 years after the birth of
their first baby.
Teen mothers are more like-
ly than mothers over age 20 to
give birth prematurely (before
37 completed weeks of preg-
nancy). Between 2003 and 2005,
preterm birth rates averaged
14.5 percent for women under
age 20 compared to 11.9 percent
for women ages 20 to 29. Babies
born prematurely face an in-
creased risk of newborn health
problems, long-term disabilities
and even death.
How does a teen mother's
health affect her baby? Some
teens may need to change their
lifestyle to improve their chanc-
es of having a healthy baby.
Eating unhealthy foods, smok-
ing, drinking alcohol and taking
drugs can increase the risk that
a baby will be born with health
problems, such as low birth


weight (less than 5.5 pounds).
Teens are more likely than
women over age 25 to smoke
during pregnancy. In 2004, 17
percent of pregnant teens ages
15 to 19 smoked, compared to
10 percent of pregnant women
ages 25 to 34. Babies of women
who smoke during pregnancy
are at increased risk for prema-
ture birth, low birth weight and
sudden infant death syndrome
(SIDS). Women who smoke
during pregnancy also have an
increased risk for pregnancy
complications, including pla-
cental problems. Teens are least
likely of all maternal age groups
to get early and regular prena-
tal care. From 2000 to 2002, an
average 7.1 percent of mothers
under age 20 received late or
no prenatal care, compared to
3.7 percent for all ages. A teen-
age mother is at greater risk than
women over age 20 for pregnan-
cy complications, such as pre-
mature labor, anemia and high
blood pressure. These risks are
even greater for teens who are
under 15 years old.
What are the health risks to
babies of teen mothers? A baby
born to a teenage mother is at
higher risk than a baby born to
an older mother for premature
birth, low birth weight, other
serious health problems and
death. Babies of teenage moth-
ers are more likely to die in the
first year of life than babies of
women in their twenties and
thirties. The risk is highest for
babies of mothers under age 15.
The major fundraiser for the
March of Dimes is March for
Babies, which will take place in
Okeechobee on Saturday, March
6. For information on forming
a team or becoming a sponsor,
call Laura McCall at 863-763-
3131 or Cindy Hernandez at 772-
