arrest report by Detective Ted Van Deman

arrested on June 7, 2009, in Pinellas County
as he prepared to board the 44-foot Hatteras
charter boat "Quality Time" to go fishing in
the Gulf.
While Mullin was on the lam, Catelyn
was undergoing surgeries for the numerous
lacerations to her tiny face. Her aunt, Amber
Anthony, suffered a back injury in the crash.
It was pointed out to the jury that Catelyn
was not wearing a seat belt when the crash
occurred. When queried Tuesday morning,
Ms. Anthony told the jury that she had rid-

Esdras Gomez, 33, dressed in an orange
Okeechobee County Jail jumpsuit, said he
had no time to react and plowed into the
driver' side door of the red Toyota. Gomez
was not charged in the accident. However,
he was arrested on Aug. 18, 2009, on charg-
es unrelated to the crash.
While on the stand, Gomez said when he
saw the small four-door car run the stop sign
no one was on the hood. However, he did
say when he first saw the car he saw ".. a

man was trying to hit the driver or if he was
holding onto the car. After the crash, Gomez
said he never saw that man again
Wednesday, jurors will hear from an
expert who is expected to testify that DNA
from blood drops found on the hood of the
car will match Mullin's DNA sample.
"There are 6 billion people on the earth
and only one person's DNA matches that
found on the car--and that's the defendant,"
Mr. Richardson told the jury.

In Okeechobee Circuit Court Tuesday,
May 11, jurors heard how Mr. Gehle took
his daughter, Catelyn, to see her mother on
March 12, 2009. They heard how Mullin tried
his best to goad Mr. Gehle into a fight but
when the much larger man would not take
the bait, Mullin hit him anyway.
With blood streaming from a cut over
his left eye, Mr. Gehle told his sister-in-law
he wanted to get his then-5-year-old daugh-
ter out of there. As Mr. Gehle tried to leave

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!

GangS
*I am not a violent person. Not as an
adult and I never was as a child. However ...
if a group of people came at me with all in-
tent ofb eating me senseless REGARDLESS of
what they felt I may or may not have done. If
they followed through on their intent and lay
hands on me, I would shoot them to defend
myself. Regardless of what you may hear
about Okeechobee, beating someone up for
any reason, is not legal. That is why there is a
court system in this country. A police report
is just that. The initial information. Follow a
investigation start to finish and you would
see once more information is discovered
more arrests take place.

AII Shook Up
*I would like to thank the audience
members who came to see the high school
musical "All Shook Up" Friday evening. Our
light board died on us before the show start-
ed. Maintenance came and worked on it but
could never get it going again. We started the
play 15 minutes late trying to get the light-
ing fixed. The audience sat there patiently
waiting. The audience was so receptive to
the performance, giving the performance
a standing ovation at the end. The students
have worked very hard on this musical. We
have the best, supportive audiences, par-
ents, faculty and staff. Also, a big thank you
to the students who adjusted to the last min-
ute changes and gave a great performance
even s gea ifw e eyoe involved
did a fantastic job. Kudos to all.
*The high school play was great fun for
the whole family. Anyone who didn't attend
really missed out on a fun evening.

County budget
*All the local businesses are making cut-
backs. Maybe it is time for the county to do
so as taxpayers cannot afford the bills.


*Is there any more talk of the city and
county combing services to save both par-
ties money? I read an article this morning
where Palm Beach County is hiring private
security companies to save money.
*I believe that a person who makes
$133,000 a year should be able to do a job
without two assistants who make $98,000
and $83,000. No other county the size of
tkeeobe oha tvone deputy adminis-
*Consolidation of the city and county
government would not save money for the
county taxpayers -- in fact, it might mean
higher taxes for them. Eliminating duplica-
tion of services might save money for city tax
payers who currently pay both county and
city taxes. But it would not do anything to
help those who only pay county taxes now.
When this was brought up before it was
a non-binding straw vote and the people
who lived in the city limits voted for it and
the people who lived outside the city limits
voted a ainst it

Bike Fest
*I went to Bike Fest Saturday in Okeecho-
beer tth ws rat I hope tehi hyl be neve eg
the great work.
*I went to the Bike Fest and it was fun.
The children's donut eating contest was a
blast. Fun times! Good community event.

Immig ration
*Maybe it is time to look at immigration
by itself. You often hear people say that our
country was built by immigrants. While this
is all very true, the situation in our country
is very different than it was when our ances-
tors came here with the intention of mak-
ing this country their own. We have only so
much land and resources. What do you do
when pouring yourself a cup of coffee? Do
you keep on pouring even though you can
see it is going to run over? Our cup runneth
over, with people, not with resources which
are being drained with all the humanity
here. Of course there are a lot of "what ifs.
What if the people who come here were not
sending a large portion of their income back
to their relatives in their homeland? They
would be spending their money here and
building, maintaining our own economy to
a healthy state. I would say this applies to
legal immigrants as well as illegal.

And I just want to mention the addition
of new drainage in County Hill area of some
$84,000 only one street (avenue), the same
street that a county commissioner lives on.
The other streets (avenues) did not have
any improvements, or little. I have written
articles on this also just asking our area be
given ditch mowing, cleaning and replace-
ment of culverts due to county equipment
damages: no such action taken. Thanks
county commissioners. I sent the photos
to the Okeechobee News and road mainte-
nance departments.
Look at the salaries, we the tax payers
pay, for our part-time commissioners, with
the 16 percent benefits, of some $50,895.84
per year each. So, do you think this is money
well spent or just eat out of the food trough
for government employees? We, the tax pay-
ers pay for with little concept of the waste?
Let me point out one very important
thing. Many of our county employees re-
ally earn their salaries. They work hard for
much less money and are polite, efficient
and well-deserving of their salaries. I, in no
manner, am casting any reflection on them
and their well-deserved salaries, of which
some are even underpaid. As for the consti-
tutional elected officials, I find no complaint
with them and their employees, which have
always provided outstanding service. The
county administrations, commissioners,
department heads needs to be renovated
(removed) to provide, we the taxpayers, a
reasonable value and services for our tax
dollars, in my opinion.

Day of Prayer
We just got home from the World Day
of Prayer around 1:20 p.m. held here in
Okeechobee. I have had that program on
my mind all afternoon. I went to the service
with a heavy heart, but came home feeling
there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
For those of us that were there (and there
were many) we witnessed something spec-
tacular. I watched our Superintendent of
Schools, get up and pray without benefit of
a paper in her hand. It came from her heart.
I witnessed one of our County Commission-
ers, get up, and pray from the heart without
benefit of a paper in his hand. I also saw an
Okeechobee News reporter, get up and de-
liver a beautiful prayer, WITHOUT the bene-
fit of a rehearsed paper in their hand. You ex-
pect this out of a Minister, or clergy, that does
this every Sunday, but to see these people,
in special offices in our little town, be able to
pray from the heart not rehearsed it gives
us HOPE, that our little town can be a light,
and is being led by people that are spiritual
and still believe in God. We give thanks for
these special people. All that got up and
prayed for our leaders, be they local or state
or federal, are to be commended.
Another thing that impressed me prob-
ably even more was that there were teen-
agers there by themselves and listening to
everything that went on. And, one of these
young gentlemen, had a hat on but re-
moved it once the spiritual part of the pro-
gram started, and kept if off, all during the
service. I shook hands with this young man,
to tell him how proud I was to see this out of
One of our teenagers, and that just because
there are a few that cause trouble in this
town of ours, there are good ones also and
we give thanks for those.
Thank you Okeechobee, for offering this
for all of us. Thanks to the Kiwanis Club for
their support and all that participated and
was a part of this wonderful service.

Urban Tails seeks grant
As some of you already know, Urban
Tails has qualified for a $250,000 Pepsi Re-
fresh Grant! The only way we can win it is by


County budget too large?
Thank you Pete! Finally, someone other
than me has written an article concerning
the excessive county spending. I have writ-
ten many articles, letters to the editor, con-
cerning the waste in the county spending
habits with little or no replies. Now you have
pointed out some of the issues that I have
presented to the tax payers, maybe they will
now listen. The county spending is out of
control for the services rendered. You men-
tion in your article on May 2, the salaries of
certain employees but you neglected to add
in the benefits attached to those salaries.
For example, the county administrator in
2009, would have some $34,000 added to
his cost for retirement, medical benefits and
social security and medicare costs making
his salary $167,171.38. This also applies to
other county employees mentioned. There
are also other department heads, which in
my opinion, do little to deserve their exces-
sive salaries. Let me mention a few, with
their benefits based on the 2009 figures, I
received from the county at a cost to me of
$67. Capitol Improvement Project Manager
-$100,711.69, Code Compliance Director
-$103,329.35, Facility Maintenance Man-
ager $88,127.29, Parks and Recreations -
$100,711.69. And the most outrageous in my
opinion, Planning Director at $118,445.96.
This is of course beyond the two assistant
county administrators at a total of around,
with benefits in 2009 at $231,647.51
Most of the other department heads
make between, with benefits, $57,000 and
$88,127. The county average according to
the article is $30,295.
Pay your employees twice to five times
what you make? How stupid are we?
Now, I just want to mention a couple of
other issues I have written about with con-
cerns on the county spending habits. The
annual loss at the Agri-Civic Center with an
average of $700,000 loss per year. The cost
of the new EOC, Emergency Operation Cen-
ter of at least $3.2 million, of which DeSoto
County built theirs for less than $1.5 million
for a comparable number of citizens. Any-
one want to bet ours will cost more than $4
million at the end of the project, not to men-
tion additional yearly cost, I don't think so.

V Fred George, 81
OKEECHOBIEE V. Fred George, 81, passed
away peacefully in Okeechobee, on May 6,
2010, and will be dearly missed as a husband,
father, grandfather, and friend.
Fred was born in
Lawrence County, '
Ill., and raised in 9
Chicago. There he
fell in love and mar-
ried Su, his wife of
55 years. Fred and
Su moved to Holly-
wood, Florida in
1955 where they
were blessed with a
daughter and later
moved to Haverhill
(W e st
Palm Beach) in 1963 where they were
blessed with a son. In 1998 Fred and Su moved
to Okeechobee to be closer to the pleasures of
two wonderful grandsons.
Throughout his life Fred was an active man of
faith and served in the Christian Church, Disci-
ples of Christ. He was the President of the Flori-
da Christian Men's Fellowship (CMF) from 1986
to 1990 and was honored as the Florida CMF
Layman of the Year in 1995. He later carried his
faithful service to the Okeechobee Presbyterian
Church and was active in both the Emmaus and
Kairos communities. His desire to serve extend-
ed to secular life, as an enlistee in both the Illi-
nois and Florida National Guard, and as an
active member of Rotary International for over
25 years.
Fred possessed an entrepreneurial spirit and
held many interests. After serving as an art direc-
tor for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, his talents as a
jewelry designer led him to found Craft House
Creative Jewelry, which later expanded to in-
clude Craft House Hobby Shop in West Palm
Beach. He also founded Specialty Casting and
Design. Fred was an artist, a musician, a pho-
tographer, a woodworker, and enjoyed vintage
cars and aviation.
Fred loved the company of others and brought
a delightful sense of humor, empathy, and curi-
osity to any conversation. Not surprisingly, he
was a passionate and talented teacher who
strongly believed that knowledge not shared is
knowledge wasted. Fred taught within the Chi-
cago Park District, at Palm Beach Community
College, and at the Armory Art Center in West
Palm Beach. He also taught many private class-
es in jewelry fabrication and design.
Fred was predeceased by his parents, Verne
and Ethel George. He is survived by his wife, Su-
san "Su" Hindle George of ( i., . il. L. daugh-
ter, Susan Joyce "J~oy" Hart (Mark W) of San
Jose, California; son, Frederick "Fred" D. George

$35,000. Two current employees are certified
to be anirnal control officers. Deputy County
Manager Bob Jones said an applicant has
not been selected but he will likely be quali-
fied to train the employee. Jones said the
position will be advertised and available to
candidates with a high school diploma, who
are able to pass a background check. Cer-
tifications in anirnal control and euthanasia
would be considered a plus for applicants.
The Cornrission also lifted the burn ban
for outdoor burning that was enacted during
the dry season. Jones said there were three
large brush fires this year in Glades Coun-
ty which fails to compare to 2008 when
close to 71,000 acres burned in wild fires in
Glades County. Corniissioner Jones said he
thought the burn ban has worked well to
protect Glades County from larger fires.
County Manager Wendell Taylor said he
expected to have a study on proposed new
tipping fees for the County landfill in June.
He reported that construction of the new
Glades County Health Department building
is on schedule. Cornrissioner Paul Beck said
a group of local Boy Souts enjoyed an outing
at Curry Island near Lakeport recently.

Ordinances to end a ban on outdoor
burning, a discussion of fuel sales taxes, and
the appointment of a new agriculture exten-
sion agent highlighted the agenda when the
Glades County Board of County Corniis-
sioners met on Tuesday in Moore Haven.
The County and the City of Moore Haven
must have an inter-local agreement to de-
cide how to distribute the collection of fuel
sales taxes. The County receives 80 percent
and the city receives 20 percent. The City
Council will have their chance to review the
fuel tax agreement. The agreement was ap-
proved unanimously, 5-0.
Glades County hired Tycee Beth Prevatt
as their new agriculture extension agent.
The position has been vacant since January.
The University of Florida pays 60 percent of
her salary and the County pays 40 percent.
She is a certified teacher in Florida and had
served as extension agent in Desoto County
for three years from 1994-1996.
Glades County has an opening for an
animal control officer. The annual salary is

Herrera said he worked real hard to help
the team this year. He was voted team cap-
tain. He was praised for his hustle and dedi-
cation to the team.
Ricardo said he ran about 100 miles this
summer to get in condition for this season.
"If you want to be good at any sport or any-
thing you want to do in life you have to work
hard. If you want to be successful you have
to be a hard worker."
He plans to attend Indian River State Col-
lege and wants to one day play college soc-
cer for Florida Gulf Coast University. In the
interim he will play club soccer to keep his
skills.
Seven seniors were honored at the ban-
quet. They include Guerrero, Herrera, Roger
Duque, Oscar Garcia, Adrian Leon, Basilio
Ruiz and Chris Spruill. Sears said the se-
niors had a record of 49-24 over the past
four years. They were one of four teams in
school history to make the district final. He
noted the team had 248 shots on goal and
held their opponents to 140 shots.
Sears encouraged the kids to work hard
in the off season and especially urged them
to play soccer together so they learn each
others games. "You are never good enough.
It you think that then I don't know why you
are playing a sport. Look in the mirror and
do more work," he told the crowd.
Garcia won the team offensive most valu-
able player, Adrian Leon won the MVP for
midfielders, and Garcia won for defensive
MVP. Roger Duque won the team player
award. Marcos Fonseca won the most im-


proved player award. Guerrero took home
the award for most goals while Erick Garcia
and Guerrero took home the award for most
assists.
Sears said Okeechobee will host the dis-
trict tournament next year and will try to
take the next step in soccer. "We've been
very competitive for the past five or six years.
I think these kids can take it to the next level
if they put in more work. They truly have the
talent."
The team will return eight players that
started matches this year. He noted a lot of
them play club soccer in Okeechobee or for
teams on the coast. He urged them to try
and play more together in the off season.
"We want them to know each others games
and each others style. It takes a long time
for us to get them to play our style. They do
need to play more together.

Eddie Guerrero won the most valuable
player award and Ricardo Herrera took
home the Brahman award at the Brahman
Boys Soccer Banquet held Friday night at the
Okeechobee High School Cafeteria.
Soccer Coach Lonnie Sears said the ban-
quet is about celebrating the team's accom-
plishments. The team finished (13-9) this
year and qualified for the regional playoff as
the District 14-4A as runners up.
Eddie Guerrero was also named to the all
area soccer team. Javier Garcia earned hon-
orable mention.
Coach Sears called Guerrero the most
dynamic player he has ever coached. He
praised his creativity and passing ability.
Guerrero finished his career with 27 goals
and 29 assists. He had 11 goals and nine as-
sists during his senior year.
Guerrero said he still hadn't decided
about his college career and whether he will
pursue soccer or cross country. "I feel good
about the most valuable player award. It's a
great award. I've been waiting for awhile to
get this award and it's a great accomplish-
ment for me."
Guerrero said his entire family has
worked hard to become good soccer play-
ers. His older brother Omar holds the school
record for goals in a career. Eddie thinks his
younger brother Brian could be an even bet-
ter player. "We have worked very hard and I
think my little brother could be an even bet-
ter player. Hopefully that happens."

District staff is spraying herbicides ap-
proved by the 11.S. Environmental Protection
Agency on exotic plant populations along the
length of the river banks, from Lake Kissin-
inee to Lake Okeechobee, to lirnit the spread
of these plants. The treatment is scheduled
to last through the end of September 2010.
Treatment will be primarily applied by heli-
capter on upland areas and should not in-

be sprayed by ground crews.
Since first making its way to Flonida in the
late 1960s, Old World climbing fern (Lygo-
diurn microphyllum) and Japanese climb-
ing fern (L. japonicum) have becorne two of
the most invasive exotic plants in the state.
The climbing fern grows quickly in South
Flonida without the natural pests and condi-

areas of Australia and Asia. The fern covers
and shades out native plants, eventually kill-

Brazilian pepper (Schinus terebinthifo-
lius) is a South American shrub first intro-
duced into Florida as an ornamental plant
in the 19th century. Today, it is considered
one of the most noxious, widespread weeds
in the state. The peppers readily invade ev-
erything from fallow farmland to hardwood
harnrocks and mangrove forests.
The SFWMD Vegetation Management Di-
vision is responsible for managing nuisance
and invasive exotic vegetation throughout


the District. Irnplernentation of a vegetation
Inanagernent program helps to ensure the

water resources and preservation of South
Flonida's conservation lands. For more in-
