All roads lead to N.E. 13th Av-
enue. While there are several
variations of the proposed S.R. 710
extension, Okeechobee County
Commissioners learned at their
Thursday March 27 meeting, that
they all have one thing in com-
mon, they all intersect with U.S.

and just south of Okeechobee Re-

The detective said the three girls are ac-
cused of entering the store and stealing an
undisclosed amount of cash from the store
register, as well as cash from the store em-
ployee. They also took store merchandise
that included purses and a hat.
Detective Faulkner said two of the teens
reportedly went into the store Tuesday and
took some merchandise
without paying for it.
"By their getting away
with it, they evidently
thought it was a pretty
easy target," said the de-
tective, of the three girls
then returning to the store
Wednesday.
His arrest report states Khadijah
that the girls entered the Murray
store then went to the back
of the store where they called to the employ-
ee and asked for help. The three girls were
wearing bandanas on their faces.
When the employee responded, Palmer
allegedly struck her in the body with a ham-
mer then gave the hammer to Murray, who
then guarded the injured woman, stated the


report.
Detective Faulkner said the force of the
blow knocked the victim to the floor. He
went on to say that Hughes was armed with
some sort of razor.
When Palmer and Hughes were unable
to open the register, they ordered the em-
ployee to open it. Palmer, said the detective,
told the employee if she
didn't open the register she
would shoot her. Although
she wasn't armed, Detec-
tive Faulkner said she held
her hand in a manner that
led the victim to believe she
had a gun.
The girls then grabbed
the money from the regis- Tiasha
ter and Palmer went to the Hughes
victim's purse and took an
undisclosed amount of cash, stated the ar-
rest report.
Once they had the cash and merchandise
the girls fled the store on foot, the report
stated.
The detective went on to state in his re-
port that the girls went to Murray's home
where they diwied up the cash and mer-
chandise.
Detective Faulkner said witnesses in
the area and information gleaned by other
members of law enforcement led him to the
trio. Hughes reportedly flushed some of the
cash down a toilet when she heard the de-
tective knohek on tdhebdcor.arseontse

charges, OCSO Detective Rick Durfee

glary and grand theft-firearm in connection
with the May 12 break-in of a N.E. 16th Ave.

On March 8, 2010, nearly one year after
Mr. Rogers death, Howard was arrested on
a charge of driving under the influence. On
May 12, she was found guilty of DUI and
was sentenced to serve one year on proba-
tion by County Judge Jerald Bryant.

revoe i ec rate n unebate c
filed against her that include: four counts of
possession of a controlled substance with-
out a valid prescription; criminal use of per-
sonal identity information; and, trespass on
school grounds refusal to leave.
County jail records indicate that Howard
is being held without bond on all of those
charges, which stem from three different
cases filed against her.
According to Clerk of Court records,
Howard has a number of felony arrests, but
her only felony conviction came on June 1
2004, when Judge Robert Makemson sen-
tenced her to two years probation on a felo-
ny charge of tampering with a witness. She
was also found guilty on a misdemeanor
charge of battery and sentenced by Judge
Makemson to serve one year's probation
that was to run concurrently with her felony
conviction in the same case.

Cpl. Casella's report goes on to state that
Howard was northbound on U.S. 441 S.E.

Howard was charged with failure to ren-

Okeechobee News


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man has been arrested
and accused of taking a bottle of prescription
pain killers from a local pharmacy where he
was working.
Gregory Alan Vickers Jr., 20, was arrested
Wednesday, May 26, on a felony charge of
trafficking in oxycodone and a misdemean-
or charge of petit theft. He was booked into
the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond
of $75,500.
According to an arrest report by Detec-
tive Bill Saum of the Okeechobee City Po-
lice Department (OCPD) Vickers took a full


bottle of 100, 30mg oxy-
codone tablets from the
pharmacy. The detective
said Vickers apparently
unpacked several boxes
that were delivered to
the pharmacy and one
of those boxes contained
five bottles of the potent
pain killer. VGckekgry
The detective's report es
went on to state that store surveillance cap-
tured images of Vickers unpacking the box
then taking one of the bottles of oxycodone
tablets.
When Detective Saum and a detective


from the Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force
went to Vickers' home to recover the tablets
the next day, only 20 were found.
The recovered tablets were now indi-
vidually packaged for street sales, added the
OCPD detective. Oxycodone tablets can be
sold on the street for $10 to $15 each, point-
ed out the report.
Packing slips and drug bottle stickers were
allegedly found in the dumpster behind the
pharmacy. Detective Saum said they should
not have been thrown away.
Oxycodone is a schedule II controlled
substance.
Vickers, added the report, was hired last
week by the owner of the pharmacy.

Awards Night
*We attended awards night last night
which was wonderful to see all the great
kids we have at OHS. I was disturbed to see
however, so much lack of respect by kids
who received their awards, then got up with
their parents and left. By the time they an-
nounced the top of the Class for 2012, 2011
and 2010 there were hardly half of the peo-
ple left, who came to begin with. It was very
rude. Parents--it does not set a good exam-
ple to leave an awards program after your
child gets their award. The kids at the top
of their respective classes worked their tails
off to be there and their efforts should have
been respected by you and your children.
*Lack of respect by kids? Those kids
are respecting their parents wishes to leave.
Maybe you should ask that OHS consider
making the announcements that you want
to hear earlier in the evening, or hold the
ceremony on a weekend. I agree the top ac-
ademic percentile should be rewarded with
honor, but let's not have tunnel vision. With
a 40 percent divorce rate, maybe visiting par-
ents want to spend a little quality time over
dinner with their child before having to leave
to go back home. I don't fault those in that
category for that. If the parents aren't there'
how many high school seniors that didn't
graduate at th~e top the class, are going to
sit through a three hour ceremony to watch
someone they weren't close friends with get

*As long as people are not disrupting the
ceremony by getting up and leaving during
the ceremony, I don't think it is disrespect-
ful to leave before the end. If you don't even
know the kid, why should the kid care if you
are there or not to see him get an award?
Getting up to leave while they are making
announcements is rude. But I don't think it
is wrong to slip out during a break, especial-
ly on a school night when you have younger
children who need to get to bed.


Bandshell "free?"
When the county received grant money,
itcosts the c unty nothing? That's correct;

Unless hr is ea ne tte tof feaf grmon%
money tree everything the government
spends money on costs we the tax payers
something. Then if it did not cost anything
to the county, then why should we, the tax
payers have to pay the county to use it? Oh!
You mean it will cost the county tax payers
something for the upkeep? So, it isn't free?
Or, is it? Confusing isn't it being a tax payer?
Now, Mr. Bonner, you think, "This is
going to be one of our premier facilities,"
maybe just like the Agri-Civic Center, which
only cost the tax payers, not the county, over
$500,000 a year to operate. What a "pre-
mier" sweet deal this sounds like too.
I'm not going to touch the subject of why
the campsites at Okee-Tantie haven't been
Eixed in four years, an area for great tourist
development. I guess the $500,000 bath-
rooms at the Agri-Civic Center bring in more
tourists and benefits the county business
more. Maybe the $3.2 million on the EOC
building will generate more businesses for
the tax paying businesses in town? I guess I
just don't think like a politician or an admin-
istrator; just build government. Now you're
short on money (the county) so just go out
and pull some grant money from the grant
money tree so you don't cost us anything, or
is it, "Raise our taxes time again?" Or maybe,
JUST MAYBE, your solution would be to cut
some limbs off that big government tree and
stop spending so much on trying to make it
grow bigger.
Times are changing! Do you think we are
gullible or just stupid?

Remember the missionarieS
During this Memorial Day weekend give
special thought end pru er to our soldiers o
th rs. Mate ufrdmrydm
Ethiopia, killed by a sword wound. Mark died
in Alexandnia, Egypt, after being dragged by
horses through the streets until he was dead.
Luke was hanged in Greece as a result of
his tremendous preaching to the lost. John
faced martyrdom when he was boiled in
huge basin of boiling oil during a wave of
persecution in Rome. However, he was mi-
raculously delivered from death. John was
then sentenced to the mines on the prison


island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic
Book of Revelation on Patmos. The apostle
John was later freed and returned to serve
as Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey.
Peter was crucified upside down on an x-
shaped cross. According to church tradition
it was because he told his tormentors that
he felt unworthy to die in the same way that
Jesus Christ had died. James the Just, leader
of the church in Jerusalem, was thrown over
a hundred feet down from the southeast pin-
nacle of the Temple when he refused to deny
his faith in Chnist. When they discovered that
he survived the fall, his enemies beat James
to death with a fuller's club. This was the
same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus
during the Temptation. James the Great, son
of Zebedee, was a fisherman by trade when
Jesus called him to a lifetime of ministry. As
a strong leader of the church, James was
ultimately beheaded at Jerusalem. The Ro-
man officer who guarded James watched
amazed as James defended his faith at his
trial. Later, the officer walked beside James
to the place of execution. Overcome by
conviction, he declared his new faith to the
judge and knelt beside James to accept be-
heading as a Christian
Bartholomew, also known as Nathan-
iel, was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed
for our Lord in present day Turkey. Bartho-
lomew was martyred for his preaching in
Armenia where he was flayed to death by a
whip. Andrew was crucified on an x-shaped
cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped
severely by seven soldiers they tied his body
to the cross with cords to prolong his agony.
He continued to preach to his tormentors for
two days until he expired.
Thomas was stabbed with a spear in In-
dia during one of his missionary trips to es-
tablish the church in the sub-continent. Jude
was killed with arrows when he refused to
deny his faith in Christ. Matthias, the apostle
chosen to replace he traio Judas Iscariot

tortured and then beheaded by the evil Em-
peror Nero at Rome in A.D. 67.
Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our
sufferings here are indeed minor compared
to the intense persecution and cold cruelty
faced by the apostles disciples during their
times for the sake of the Faith.
Remember our missionaries...They are
still being persecuted and executed today.

OPINION


Memorial Day
*I understand that Bass/Buxton Funeral
Home has flags for anyone who wants to
put one on their loved one's grave. My dad
served in the Korean War and I'd like to put
a flag at his grave site. I think it is a nice thing
for them to offer. The flags are free, which
makes is especially nice.
*Remember that special night back in
January, 2009 when the newly sworn-in
President opted not to appear at what should
have been one of the most important Balls
on his agenda that evening The Salute to
Heroes Inaugural Ball. There were 48 Medal
of Honor recipients in attendance hoping
to see his entrance and they were ignored.
Memorial Day 2010 will be the next tradition
to be ignored by the Commander in Chief.
On Monday, President Obama will be in
Chicago and will make remarks at the Abra-
ham Lincoln National Cemetery and miss
the usual tradition of presidents speaking at
Arlington National Cemetery on Memonial
Day. Instead, Vice President Biden and his
wife will appear in Obama's place, laying a
wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,
as well as holding a breakfast for Gold Star
families -- families whose loved ones died in
military service -- at the White House earlier
that day. One might think that in the midst of
war, the President should probably be going
to Arlington National Cemetery for Memo-
flal Day instead of taking his second vacation
in a month.
*It isn't like a vice president hasn't laid
wreaths before when a president has been
on vacation. This president has done a lot
more to show his respect for our military in
my opinion.

Tired of slow internet or no internet?
At their meeting on Thursday, May
12p7a Cketpchobe :o )ty eConmini otnnr
closer to having another high speed internet
option.
Lyn Topal, of Florida Heartland Regional
Economic Development Initiative, reported
on her organization's project of trying to get
a federal grant to provide high speed inter-
net service for the rural south Flonida coun-
ties served by FHREDI. She said the officials
reviewing the application gave FHREDI a
list of iterns where more information is re-
quired. At Ms. Topal's request, the board
passed a resolution agreeing to provide in-
kind services for the internet service. In a
related matter, deputy county administrator
Jirn Threewitts and deputy clerk of the court
Donnie Yeates were appointed to sit on the
board of directors of the corporation that
would run the internet system.
Turning to another itern, the county's
grant consultant Deborah Belcher, of Rou-
rnelis Planning & Development, discussed


requirements for neighborhood revitaliza-
tion and housing grants available under the
Cornrunity Development Block Grant pro-
grain. She said the deadline for applying for

dalin hs nt yrtnt sen annur%< dhile tih
<:al year 2010 grants, Ms. Belcher predicted it
would be sorne time around Thanksgiving.
After hearing her presentation and conduct-
ing a public hearing, the board delayed any
action until the next meeting.
In a related matter, in accordance with
CDBG grant requirements. Ms. Belcher gave
a Fair Housing presentation. Basically she in-
formed the board that there are federal, state
and county laws that prohibit disenrnination
in housing ard there is a formal process for
fiigcmpans
"You have one of the best workforce
tearns found anywhere night here in
Okeechobee County," said Gwen Thornp-
son, President and CEO of the Workforce
IDeveloprnent Board of the Treasure Coast.
LYou are very fortunate.
She detailed efforts her organization has
been taking to train job seekers and work
with prospective employers to provide


workers for then. She said that today pro-
spective employers are looking for employ-
ees with more training and certification. Her
organization has been working with Indian
Rie dState Ctol ee ariddother institutions to
In other action, the board:
*tabled purchase of a 201 1 International
Chassis from Reichtien International Trucks
for an ambulance-
*authorized exceeding the CDBG hous-
ing rehabilitation expenditure limit for a par-
ticular project with the balance of rehabilita-
tion costs to corne from county SHIP funds;


*awarded a contract concerning grant
programs that deals with grant adrninistra-
tion, project delivery and grant writing to
Rournelis Planning & Development and a
second contract for engineering services on
those grants to Craig A. Srnith and Associ-
ates; and

DAR award given
On April 17, Regent Betsy Cheney of
the Okeechobee Chapter, Daughters
of the American Revolution present-
ed the 2010 bronze award and cer-
tificate to Cadet Dayla Ferneau at the
annual JROTC Military Ball. Dayla is
a member of the Okeechobee High
School JROTC Brahman Battalion
and is an outstanding student. She is
the daughter of Darcy Ferneau, who
is celebrating her 30th year with the
Okeechobee County School System,
and Darrell Ferneau who is retired.
The Okeechobee DAR is proud to
have her as the award winner for
2010.


The intersection with C.R. 15B could be
signalized and the alignment with C.R. 714
could be changed to make that intersection
safer.
School board nernber Joe Arnold ex-
pressed concern about how the new road
would affect school bus routes and traffic.
Mr. Hall replied that they will meet with
school officials to discuss such iterns.
Mack Whorley asked if any of the road
would be landscaped. He was told that
no landscaping is planned at this tune but
it could be added during the design phase.
However, the county would be responsible
for maintaining the landscaping.
City Councillnan Lowery Markharn asked
where the traffic was going once it reached
11.S. 441 N. He feared that a large percent of
the traffic would be using N.E. Ninth Street
to go to 11.S. 98 and that N.E. Ninth would
not be able to handle the additional traffic.
He feared the additional expense to the city
for maintenance an N.E. Ninth Street.
In response to another question Mr. Hall
1 tl)AOT had d s81%s) f wit Isech ree
ity of the proposed route to OllA wells.
Cornrissioner Clif Betts stated that with
the proposed Cemetery Road route there
would not be as many businesses and resi-
dence disturbed.
"It is better than what we have," County
Administrator Lyndon Bonner said of the
proposal.
Cornrissioner Joey Hoover said this
project was just the first link and expressed
optirnisrn that another connection further
north could be built later.
"I kind of like it," Cornrissioner Ray
Dorner said of the proposal. "I would like to
see it connect to 98."
"This is not the bypass road," asserted
Mr. Bonner. "This is going to be a parkway
in Okeechobee "

tant under contract to the Florida Depart-
Inent of Transportation (DOT). "We looked
at alternatives in the vicinity of 36th Street,
23rd Lane and 13th Street.
"The major issue is where do we hit 11.S.
441," he asserted. He said that traffic projec-
tions showed that traffic dropped off with
the 36th Street route. He said the school sys-
tern felt that the N.W. 23rd Lane alternative
would be too disruptive to the schools.
Mr. Hall said the proposed N.W. 13th
Street intersection would carry more traffic
and relieve more congestion from S.R. 70
than any other alternative proposed.
"This is the preferred alternative he
said. "It avoids residential and cornrercial
impacts. It is o ur recornrendation this be
the alternative.

N. is dsged ac g aprpde ubr o~a~dl-
way with a 30 foot wide raised median. Me-
dian openings would be spaced about one
half mile apart. There would be curbs on
each side of the road with inlets for drain-
age. Retention ponds would have to be
located along the route. Access would be
mainly from frontage roads. The idea is to
get the traffic away from 11.S. 44 N. as soon
as possible.
Moving east and south there are several
possible variations in the route. The road
takes on a more rural quality with a 40 foot
depressed median and swales on each side
of the road.
There are three proposed options for
crossing S.R. 70. The preferred one being
east of the current intersection. Mr. Hall said
the present intersection is skewed, and an
easterly intersection would allow for a night
angle intersection

Migrant and Hispanic students at
Okeechobee High School were honored
Monday at the annual Harvest of Hope cer-
emony at the High School Auditorium.
There are 86 students in the senior class
this year and well over half of them were
honor students with grade point averages of
3.0 or above this year.
OHS Pnincipal Toni Wiersma said she
adk hrbs fufwere vrhaproud ofothk dgrhoaupd
and overcame obstacles that stood in their
way to an education,
"You overcame adversity. You are a step
above other job candidates and you will be
successful," she said.
She mentioned that many of these stu-
dents will be the first person in their family
to graduate from high school. She encour-
aged them to attend college because they
have the skills to succeed. She also thanked
the migrant advocates at each of the schools
in the district because they have helped this
class succeed.
OHS guidance counselor Virginia Bryant
said the 2010 graduation class was a won-
derful group and a special one to her per-
snll Se iur ed tle kids tdo tloo Bout, f
own best advocate and stand up for your-
self."
Guest speaker Dr. Gabriel Guerrero spoke
on his life story. He lived in a small coun-
try, studied medicine in Ecuador and then
itru ,ledhto b cone tdo tor itep Unit d
meiI wnee ha aml doing here. I
figured if I went home no one would care.
Then I realized I sacrificed a lot to come
to this country and I owed it to myself to
make the best of my stay," he said. "This is
a great countrhelIt is the land rf ohe fre sb
here."
Dr. Guerrero, who has an office in
Okeechobee, encouraged the kids to work
hard, and take it one step at a time.
"I proved that I was good enough
through hard work and sacrifice,' he told
the students. "After a while it wasn't who I
was and where I came from, it was about
my ability to cure patients and what I knew
about medicine."


He told the kids that all of them will have
an opportunity to make their lives better. He
said they must be ready to take advantage of
that opportunity when it comes along.
Luviano Roofing, Nunez Lawn Care and
Landscaping and Riverside National Bank
gave away prizes to high achieving students
Maria Olvera, Katarina Suarez, Ricardo Her-
rera and Ximena Sanchez at the ceremony.
There were 26 Hispanic students that ac-
cepted honor students awards. Several more
honor students were unable to attend the
event.

Grants help fund school programs


May 28, 2010


Okeechobee News


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
A presentation about grants received by
the ae hd ewhe the O shbee C 1 e
nity Collaborative Council held their regu-
lar monthly meeting Tuesday at the school
board offices.
Kathy Blair explained that the Excep-
tional Student Education Department will
receive just over $1.6 million this year. They
will serve 1,673 students and will have a
small increase in funds this year.
About 90 percent of the funds this year
were used for staffing specialists, parapro-
fessionals in the classroom, school buses,
clerical support, speech therapists and be-
havior interventionists.
"There are a lot of different needs out
there. We try to make sure our children are
technologically up to date," Ms. Blair said.
She noted some disabled students require
expensive technological needs.
Some of the money go to private schools
and also at juvenile detention centers in
Okeechobee. Federal stimulus dollars pro-
vided additional funds this year for the ESE
program.
Joni Ard, director of Student Services,
oversees Title III grant which totals $87,082
this year. This serves students whose first
language is not English.
This money provides supplementary ser-
vices for students. Those include heritage
dictionaries, reading materials, paper and
printer supplies for parent newsletters, an
extended day program tutorial program,
computer software, and other needs.
This grant will be used to fund two posi-
tions, a paraprofessional liaison and advo-
cate at OHS, and an assistant and coach for
the ESOL program.
Ms. Ard said the school system values
the input from the Community Collabora-
tive Council. She noted they try to answer
all questions and consider suggestions to
improve the services they provide students.
Director of Grants and Special Programs
Leslie Lundy said the district will receive 12
grants this year. The grants include $1.5 mil-
lion to fund paraprofessionals and reading
coaches at elementary schools, migrant ad-
vocates, support staff and technology.
A $380,000 grant will provide tutori-
als with private state approved providers.
$556,921 will fund salaries of eight migrant
advocates, support staff, and the extended
day tutorial programs at the middle and
high schools. $199,000 in grants will go to
the four Department of Juvenile Justice pro-
grams and New Endeavor High School for
materials and services for students. Another
$700,000 grant will go toward technological
needs.
She also spoke on the free and reduced
price lunch program. Ms. Lundy said there
are fewer migrant students in Florida. She
explained the district just qualified for a
$140,000 grant.
The CCC is accepting donations for back
to school supplies. Since they have no meet-
ing in June, the group will collect the sup-
plies at their meeting July 27.
The summer activity guide for 2010 is


now available. Each student in Okeechobee
County Schools received a copy to bring
home.

Five graduating seniors were honored
at the Okeechobee High School Brahman
Boys Track Team banquet held on Wednes-
day night at the Okeechobee Freshman
Campus.
Ricky Nieto won the most valuable play-
er award while Lionel Jones took home the
Brahman award.
Nieto reached the state tournament for
the high jump while Jones had four excel-
lent years in middle and long distance runs.
"I'm a little sad," Jones said afterward,
"I'm not really ready to graduate. I'm happy
about it, but I'll miss everybody."
Jones intends to attend the University of
Florida in the fall and will try out for their
cross country and track squads in Gaines-
ville
He said he felt great about the Brahman
award.
"I think it comes with a lot of honor be-
cause it means I'm a leader. I love it," he
added
Jones said he always wanted to run
competitive races even back in elementary
school and has always enjoyed the sport.
Nieto said winning the MVP was bitter
sweet. He said his senior year was memo-
rable and admitted it was nice to be with
his friends and teammates one last time. He
didn't have equipment and facilities avail-


able at OHS to practice the high jump this
year so he had to drive 45 miles each way to
work out at Martin County High School.
"I'm just happy that people were willing
to take me to practice. I'm very thankful for
that. They helped me get where I'm at," he
added.
Nieto didn't score at the state meet al-
though he had some of the highest jumps
during the preliminaries. He admitted he
won't regret his performance in the state
meet.
"It was just a bad day for me. I knew I
was competitive. I'm not going to regret it
because I'm happy with what I've done," he
said.
Nieto plans to attend Indian River State
College in the fall.
Coaches Julie Bohannon, Derek Stew-
art and Jenna Shook handed out awards to
many of the seniors and under classmen at
the banquet.
Bohannon said next year will be a re-
building year for the boy's team '
"It just goes with everything else. We had
a really talented group of seniors all acrOSS
the sports this year. There will be rebuilding
all around. We have the talent, if we put in
the work we'll get there," she added.
Jones had some simple advice for his
soon to be former teammates to take, work
hard and have desire.
"Just train hard and never give up. Chase
your dreams," he said.
Other awards were handed out to Shawn
Horvath who earned a three-year letter, and
Roger Duque who earned a two-year letter.

CentgyVLink offers telephone assistance to

individuals living on Tribal Lands
CenturyLink is energizing its efforts to inform residents of two assistance programs that provide
discounts on initial telephone installation and basic monthly telephone service to qualifying low-
income consumers. Link-Up helps these consumers pay the initial costs of getting telephone
service. Lifeline provides certain discounts on monthly service for qualified subscribers.

Lifeline and Link-Up are available to qualifying consumers in every U.S. state (territory and
commonwealth). Qualifications for participation vary by state. States with their own programs
have their own criteria. In states that rely solely on the federal program, the subscriber must par-
ticipate in one of the following programs: Medicaid, food stamps, Supplemental Security
Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance or the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance
Program (LIHEAP), Head Start, the National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program,
Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or if the Household annual gross income is at
or below 135% of the federal poverty level.
The amount of the discounts also varies by state. Link-Up helps qualified low-income con-
sumers to connect to the telephone network. This federal program offsets 1/2 of the initial hook-
up fee, up to $30, for qualified households.
Residents of American Indian and Alaskan Native tribal lands may qualify for an additional $25
of enhanced Lifeline support monthly and up to $70 of expanded Link-Up support beyond cur-
rent levels. An individual living on tribal lands may also qualify for Lifeline and Link-Up dis-
counts if he or she participates in one of the above programs or one of the following federal pro-
grams: Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance or Tribally-Administered Temporary
Assistance to Needy Families.
Individuals living in a CenturyLink service area should call 800-201-4099 or

Laura Luchetta started her third year
as coach of the Okeechobee Shockwaves
swim team this month and was pleasantly
surprised to see a record number of swim-
mers, 42, this year
Children ages 5 to 17 are eligible to com-
pete in the South Florida Recreation Swim
League each summer. Teams come from
Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, Palm Beach Gar-
dens and all the way south to Miami Dade.
Coach Luchetta, who teaches third grade
at South Elementary, admits she is very pas-
sionate about swimming and helping the
young kids get better at their sport.
"I've been a swimmer my entire life and I
love it. I've seen a huge improvement in the
kids this year. They have a lot of self confi-
dence and are learning to interact with other
kids in a friendly, low stress atmosphere,"
she said.
Luchetta grew up in Massachusetts and
attended Fitchburg State College. She also
competed on a local YMCA swim team and
fell in love with the sport.
She noted she enjoys teaching the kids
and helping them become better swim-
mers.
The kids in the Okeechobee program can
compete in all swim events which include
the butterfly, free style, back stroke and oth-
er events. The only difference is the younger
swimmers go for shorter distances. While

mite division and can weigh up to 90 pounds.
Players ages 10-12 play in the pee wee divi-
sion. The maximum weight in this division
is 120 pounds.


kids, the vast majority of the swimmers this
year are 8 and under.
Luchetta said she has seen the program
double in size over the past few years. "As
the program becomes more popular more
kids talk about it and get their friends in-
volved. There is some great networking go-
ing on.
Luchetta said she thinks this program will
Ct


help the high school swim program improve
as long as the kids stay committed to swim-
ming.
The kids practice three times each week
during school. After school lets out for the
summer the team will have practices each
weekday morning at the sports complex. It
costs $60 to sign up for the team and a $15
league fee. Signups are closed for this year.
The team will also host two local meets


this year in Okeechobee on June 26 at 1
p.m. and July 24 at 10 a.m. at the Okeecho-
bee Sports Complex pool.
Spectators are welcome to come and
watch the Shockwaves.
Luchetta thanked the pool staff and the-
parents for their support and assistance they
give to the program.
"The parents I have are absolutely amaz-
ing and are very supportive," she noted.

Big "O" Teen Anglers Inc.


introduces kids to fishing


Okeechobee News


May 28, 2010


als from the club have won state champi-
onships. Ryan Edwards, 14, of Stuart is a
four-time state champion who will compete
in the world championships in Louisiana in
October. Garrett Farmer, 18, of Estro earned
a berth in the collegiate state tournament.
"I am so proud of our young anglers,"
said Hays, director of the club. "They work
so hard and do such a good job at catching
and releasing and taking care of the fish. The
boat captains who work with us are also ex-
tremely important to us. We couldn't do it
without them. They volunteer their time to
take these kids out on the water and allow
them to compete for points and for Angler of
the Year. If we had more of them, we could
have more kids in the club, because we have
a waiting list. "We emphasize things like
safe boating. In fact, our kids have to take
a class in that. As a club, we are involved
in conservation and in community service.
We also insist that our anglers maintain at
least a C average." Hays said that the club
officials also try to help anglers gain the
monetary assistance they need to advance
to the next level, including sponsorships.
In competitions, the anglers are judged on
the number of fish they catch, the weight of
the fish and how they take care of them, as
well as on sportsmanship and knowing the
workings of the boat. Hays works with Mike
Zubricky, tournament director, boat captain
coordinator and board member, and Janis
Floyd, who handles the paperwork. Those
interested in learning more about Big "O"
Teen Anglers, Inc., may call Charlie Hays at
863-763-2332. Look for Big "O" Teen Anglers

Competitive youth baSS
flShing club is an idea that'S
Still 'flyinn" in Okeechobee
Seven years ago when Charlie Hays be-
came the Youth Director for the Florida BASS
Federation Nation (FBFN) Junior Program,
she attended her first World Junior BASS
Masters Classic in Montgomery, Ala.
"I was asked why Florida did not have
a youth bass fishing club competing at the
junior national championships," said Hays.
"I came home and told my husband, Bill,
that we were going to start a competitive
youth bass fishing club. He said that the
idea would never fly, but now there are
seven competitive youth bass fishing clubs
in Florida. Targeting coed groups of kids 11-
14 for the younger division and 15-18 for the
older division, Big "O" Teen Anglers, Inc., is
affiliated with both FBFN and the Bass An-
glers Sportsman Society (BASS). There are
currently 21 kids in the club. They fish year
'round, competing in 12 tournaments and
hoping to earn enough points to compete in
the state championships in August and the
world championships in October.
A number of the club's members have
enjoyed considerable success through the
years. For four consecutive years, individu-
