Okeechobee to Angola on June 11.
Mr. Sanger would like to send 15,000
more just like that home to the port city
of Lobito in the next three years.
"This would be a big shot in the arm
to Okeechobee. It could mean up to
20,000 homes in the next three years
and billions in revenue. We could put
1,000 people to work," he said.
Angola is in desperate need of hous-
ing after nearly 30 years of civil war.
Ambassador Diakite said in the past the
Angolan government had to focus its
resources on rebuilding their large cit-
ies and their infrastructure there, which
left little for smaller towns and com-
munities. She noted Angola is a huge
country with 18 different provinces.

She said the blessing calls for the spirits of

The model home measures 960 square

bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and a living

"We started thinking outside the box
years ago," Mr. Sanger said, "When the

"America must continue to be the world's

In this country you can succeed with hard

Mr. Betts also told the crowd that without
U.S. military might, the world would be a
much darker place. He said the U.S. military
has foiled terrorist plots, brought down ty-
rannical regimes, and brought killers to jus-
tice.
He also made a special plea to the crowd
to honor veterans of World War II. Less than
10 percent of the soldiers who served in
WWII are alive today.

The ambassador said she was also
impressed with the energy efficiency of
the products in Okeechobee. She also ex-
pressed confidence the homes could han-

"I think Royal has a great potential to be

Mr. Sanger and other company officials
visited Angola in February. They will send
a team of employees to Angola in July to
oversee the installation of the first unit and
to train the Angolan work force to install

was the featured speaker this year. His
speech was entitled 'We Remember.' Mr.
Betts told the crowd that those of us that
are still breathing can never repay those that
gave their lives defending us. He said at the
very least, we can--and must--remember
them.
"One million young men and women
have died in service to this nation. None of
them can be replaced. Most of them were
young and in the prime of their lives. They all
left a nation that is in their debt," he said.

haAbformer diurc org nis hn prlgal
days in the Okeechobee County Jail by Palm
Beach County Judge John Kastrenakes.
Michael Lee Hayes, 44, entered a plea
of no contest to 15 felonies and one misde-
meanor Friday, May 28, and was found guilty
by Judge Kastrenakes.
Following his jail sentence Hayes will
be placed on probation for a period of two
years. There will be no probation on the
misdemeanor conviction.
While Hayes received the same sentence
on each charge, Judge Kastrenakes ordered
that the sentences be concurrent.
Records indicate that Hayes was arrested
in 2004 on three counts of uttering a forged
instrument and three counts of grand theft.


Those charges stemmed
from his theft of three

church office.
An arrest report by De-
tective Lieutenant Brad
Michael Lee Stark of the Okeechobee
Hayes CO)n Sei d tse Oficae
Hayes stole the checks and forged them with
the name of the church's secretary. Those
checks were cashed for a total of $1,711.72,
stated the re ort
Lt. Stark went on to state that Hayes also
took three more checks, but apparently de-
stroyed them.
Hayes was also charged with forgery, ut-
tering a forged instrument, grand theft and
extortion while working as a paralegal in


the law office of then-defense attorney Jer-
ald Bryant, who is the current Okeechobee


asoa d e ee atoy n ayr. wa a slr e
employee in that office and would do some
title work. Hayes, stated an arrest report by
Detective Bill Saum of the Okeechobee City
Police Department (OCPD), entered into an
agreement with a man to do some title work
and received $2,000.50 from the man as a
retainer.
However, about two months later, the
man asked Mr. Bryant about his case. Mr.
Bryant had no record of the case and later
learned that Hayes had taken the money and
no work had been done.
Detective Saum went on to state that
Hayes admitted to taking the man's check,
which was made payable to him, and cash-
ing it.


In 2008 Hayes and his attorney, Jason M.
Wandner, filed an appeal with the 4th Dis-
trict Caut y of Ap ea tof ctsq alf entiree

appeal was denied.
That motion was based on the belief that
the state attorney's office had an "... inher-
ent conflict of interest..." in having to pros-
ecute a case in which a sitting county judge
was the victim.
The case was later assigned to Judge
Kastrenakes in the 15th Judicial District. This
was done to avoid any possible conflicts
or appearances of conflicts with judges as-
signed to the 19th Judicial District. The 19th
District includes Okeechobee County and is
where Judge Bryant presides.
Hayes was also ordered to pay all court
costs and fees as well as restitution.

An arrest report by Deputy Bart Potter
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) stated that Ayala went to a home
on N.W. 36th Ave. where his wife was visit-
ing with her child and some friends. Ayala
became angry and went outside the home
where he reportedly deflated two tires on
a car belonging to a woman who lives in
the home.
When Ayala tried to return to the home,


his entrance was denied. He then broke

Taxes
*America must stop giving away free
citizenship to these "anchor" babies born to
those in this country illegally, for all it does is
promote the expecting mothers to cross the
boarders or to become pregnant while in
the States in order to secure "anchor" their
position on American soil.

IVemorial Da
*I think Obama should have been at
Arlington. It is, after all, THE National Cem-
etery. I think it's an insulting slap in the face
to our men serving today and to the families
and friends of those who have fallen in ser-
vice to this country. I guess my way of re-
specting this Holiday will be to change my

*It really doesn't matter which presidents
didn't go to Arlington on Memorial Day. It is
inexcusable for all of them and definitely un-
acceptable.
*Idon't buy the argument that it is
wrong for a president to observe Memorial
Day somewhere other than Arlington. Those
American soldiers buried at Normandy --
where another president spent one Memori-
al Day -- are just as important as those buried
at Arlington. Those soldiers buried at other
veterans cemeteries in the United States
are also just as important. Just because my
Dad, a decorated WWII veteran who would
have qualified for Arlington, chose to be bur-
ied closer to home so that his children and
grandchildren could visit his grave, don't try

Oil spill
*The ocean is onfire and this is treated as
a "good" thing. We are in serious trouble.


*This will not be stopped. It will keep
on gushing and gushing until it is bone dry.
5,000 feet down, impossible, like putting a
spoon under a kitchen faucet. BP and the
goonies who are in charge should pay and
pay dearly. Having no safeguards in place is
inexcusable. There are thousands of other

this disaster is immeasurable. The oversight
on these off shore wells is beyond belief.
Money keeps the politicians mouths shut,

up on our Florida beaches. And it's not go-
ing to be pretty.

their batteries every now and then, perhaps
when we set the clocks forward or back.
*I think BP should be required to pay
for clean up efforts until every drop of oil is
recovered. In Alaska, that spill was 20 years
ago and the fishing is still ruined there. That
spill took away thousands of jobs and ruined
communities. I saw pictures on the news
that showed there are still oil problems in
the ocean there. This one could be hundreds
times worse than that one.
sadNo more drilling off our coast. Enough

Hours of operation
*Not all small towns/cities have all the
amenities that other larger towns/cities offer.
There will be times that you will have to ven-
ture out of your comfort zone to find some
things.
*I think we should understand that some
places in town have to cut their hours of op-
eration to save money during the slow sea-
son. But by the same token, those business-
es have to understand that some customers
who live here year round will not be able to
patronize that business due to the hours of
operation. So even though I live here year
round, you might not see me again until you
restore your winter hours.

Hurricane season
*Hurricane season is HERE. Are you
ready? Make a list and work on it now. We
should all do what we can and hope for the
best. Me and my family have checked our
supplies and are as ready as we can be. Are
you?

be hit by a hurricane, as residents learned in
2004 and 2005.
Before a storm threatens, each family
should have a hurricane plan.
*Discuss the type of hazards that could
affect your family. Know your home's vulner-
ability to storm surge, flooding and wind.
*Locate a safe room or the safest areas
in your home for each hurricane hazard. In
certain circumstances the safest areas may
not be your home but within your commu-
nity.
*Determine escape routes from your
home and places to meet. These should be
measured in tens of miles rather than hun-
drdHofmiesaout-of-state friend as a family
contact, so all your family members have a
single point of contact.
*Make a plan now for what to do with
your pets if you need to evacuate.
*Post emergency telephone numbers by
your phones and make sure your children
know how and when to call 911.
*Check your insurance coverage flood
damage is not usually covered by home own-
ers insurance.
pi*Stolck non peri hable emergency sup-
*Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember
to replace its battery every 6 months, as you
do with your smoke detectors.


period on areas of the east coast, represent-
ing a one-in-100-year storm. At a time when
evaporation typically begins to exceed rain-
fall, March and April instead combined this
year to produce nearly half of the dry season
total (11.29 inches), making the two-month
period the wettest March/April on record for
the District.
Flood control in South Florida is a shared
responsibility between the District, county
and city governments, local drainage dis-
tricts and residents. Residents can do their
part by:
*Knowing whether they live next to a
primary canal maintained by the District or a
secondary canal maintained by a municipal-
ity or drainage district.
*Making sure trees or other vegetation
do not encroach on canal maintenance
right-of-way.
*Reporting the location and condition
of any clogged or damaged facilities to the
proper authority.
*Keeping ditches, swales, drainage grates
and retention lakes clear of debris, trash and
other discarded material.
More tips on how residents can prepare
for the rainy season are available on the Dis-
trict's new Rainy Season Readiness website.

Okeechobee News


As a wetter-than-normal dry season of-
ficially comes to a close, the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) is en-
couraging residents to prepare for the sum-
mer rainy season and hurricane season.
As part of its preparations, the District is
launching a new webpage with informa-
tion on the shared responsibilities of flood
control in South Florida and what residents,
businesses and local governments can do to
prepare for a storm. The District also held
a media briefing today detailing operation
of the regional flood control system, prepa-
rations for the rainy season and continual
maintenance to protect residents. In addi-
tion, the agency will hold its annual "Hur-
ricane Freddy" exercise on Wednesday to
once again test its emergency operations
response to and recovery from a hurricane.
"South Florida's ever present water man-
agement challenge is balancing flood con-
trol, water supply and the health of the natu-
ral system for 7.5 million residents," said
Tommy Strowd, SFWMD Deputy Executive
Director of Operations and Maintenance.
"While it is difficult to predict how the wet
season will unfold, a focus on smart strat-
egies, such as continual maintenance, will


help us meet the challenge."
Balancing the sometimes conflicting mis-
sions of flood control, water supply and en-
vironmental protection is a daily challenge
for the SFWMD.
Structural maintenance and upgrades,
accomplished primarily during the dry sea-
son, are critical to ensuring that the regional
flood control system of 2,600 miles of canals
and levees operates at optimal capacity.
During the past five years, the District has
invested $240 million in essential mainte-
nance work.
As the summer rainy season and hur-
ricane season approach, many canals and
lakes from Orlando to the Florida Keys are
lowered, creating additional capacity to
store stormwater and provide flood protec-
tion. District crews also inspect many of the
approximately 1,300 water control struc-
tures and 64 pump stations.
South Florida's weather can transition
rapidly from drought to flood, especially dur-
ing hurricane season from June 1 through
Nov. 30. For example, Tropical Storm Fay
brought an average of more than 7.5 inches
of rain to the region over six days in August
2008, causing flooding in areas that just


weeks before were parched from a two-year
rainfall deficit.
Challenges for water managers have
been highlighted by these recent weather
extremes:
*November 2008 through April 2009
marked the driest six-month period in South
Florida, according to District records dating
back to 1932.
*In 2009, the sea-breeze cycle ushered
in the wet season in May. With 9.04 inches
of rain falling across the District, May 2009
became the wettest May on record, accord-
ing to District records dating back to 1932.
*October 2009 was one of the driest Oc-
tobers on record, with only 1.16 inches of
rain falling, compared to a historical average
of 3.76 inches.
*After a dry start through most of No-
vember, the 2009-2010 dry season saw
above-average rainfall.
*An average of 23.24 inches of rainfall
fell across the District during the 2009-2010
dry season through May 28, representing
127 percent or 4.99 inches more than the
average for this time period. This included
events such as a December storm that
dropped up to 15 inches of rain in a 24-hour


*Take First Aid, CPR and disaster pre-
paredness classes.
According to the NHC, items suggested
for a disaster supply kit should include:
*Water at least 1 gallon daily per person
for 3 to 7 days
*Food at least enough for 3 to 7 days,
including non-perishable packaged or
canned food and juices, foods for infants or
the elderly, snack foods, a non-electric can
opener, cooking tools and fuel, paper plates
and plastic utensils.
Blankets and pillows.
Clothing, rain gear and sturdy shoes
*First Aid Kit, medicine, prescription
drugs
*Toiletries, hygiene items, moisture
wipes
*Flashlight and batteries
*Radio Battery operated and NOAA
weather radio
*Telephones Fully charged cell phone
with extra battery and a traditional (not
cordless) telephone set. (If the power is


out a regular landlinee" telephone will still
work as long as the phone lines are opera-
tional.)
*Cash (with some small bills) and credit
cards Banks and ATMs may not be avail-
able for extended periods
Keys
Toys, books and games
Important documents in a waterproof
container or watertight resealable plastic
bag -- items such as insurance, medical re-
cords, bank account numbers, Social Secu-
rity card, etc.
*Tools keep a set with you during the
storm
*Pet care items such as proper identifi-
cation, immunization records, medications,
food and water for pets, a carrier or cage,
muzzle and leash '
In addition, when a storm threatens,
make sure all vehicles have full gas tanks.
After a storm, it may be some days before
you can buy gasoline again.

On May 27, the local chapter of the Amer-
ican Business Women's Association invited
Evelyn Arp, Development Associate with the
CASTLE, to give a presentation at their chap-
ter program meeting. The CASTLE office
in Okeechobee is located in the hallway of
New Endeavor High School. The programs
offered to Okeechobee residents are Safe
Families, an in-home education program to
prevent abuse and neglect; Strong Fathers/
Strong Families, for incarcerated fathers and
their families to teach responsible father-
hood and reunification; and Families First, a
court-ordered seminar for couples wishing
to dissolve their marriages. CASTLE is rec-
ognized as a reliable source for parenting
services and training on the Treasure Coast
since 1981. Eventually the CASTLE would
like to offer all 8 of its programs in Okeecho-
bee.
The CASTLE's mission is to prevent abuse


and educate parents. Over the last year, 600
Okeechobee individuals participated in the
three programs. The goal of the CASTLE
is to never have to turn any families away
that are in need of their services. However,
for every one family served four are turned
away. Cases of child deaths due to abuse
and neglect are on the rise. Something has
to be done; we need to pull together as a
community and partner with the CASTLE in
the fight against child abuse. It's not those
children or their children, it's our children.
CASTLE is a United Way partner organiza-
tion and is supported by the area Children's
services councils as well as UFF. CASTLE fa-
cilities are located in St. Lucie County (772-
465-6011), Martin County (772-781-4510)
and Indian River County (772-567-5700).
For further information, call Evelyn Arp @
772-781-4510, or visit our website at www.
castletc.org.

Lancelot Holton seems happily overwhelmed when his visit brought him to the

over the world.
On Thursday, May 20, farm manager, Ray
Bassett escorted Lancelot on a tour of the
Basinger farm owned by Woody and Grace
Larson.
Lancelot, of Douglas, Ga., enjoyed seeing
the largest herd of Registered Brown Swiss
cows in the U.S.
Since Lancelot first came to Okeechobee
on April 23, 2008, he wanted to return to see
the Larson's herd.
County Extension Officer Pat Miller, and
4-H director Debbie Clements gave Lancelot
a Dream of a Dairy day in 2008. They kindly
took Lancelot to four dairies beginning with
the McArthur farm and ending with Ben But-
ler's Dairies. The day ran out, as Lancelot
talked dairy farming with Ben and his Uncle;
or he would have seen the Basinger farm in
2008.
Lancelot has severe vascular problems
and he could die at any moment. His car-


Seventeen-year-old Lancelot was not ex-
pected to live to see his second birthday. He
was born with so many health problems, his
doctors did not think he would ever be able
to walk or talk.
In 2006, he asked his mother if he could
see dairy farms all over the world. Thanks
to the wonderful, sharing Dairy industry in
Okeechobee County, he is working on that
goal, his mother stated.
On his web site, www questofheart.com,
his mother wrote, "He pays no mind to the
fact that he has Severe Peripheral Pulmo-
nary Stenosis, Severe Aortic Stenosis, Renal
Stenosis, William's Syndrome, Von Wille-
brand's II B, Chronic Hypertension, Pulmo-
nary Hypertension, allergic to almost every-
thing, Scoliosis, Joint Problems and Sensory
Integration Problems."
To follow Lancelot on his quest, or to
make suggestions of dairies, go to questof-
heart.com.

Eighth graders show off skills in final scrimmage


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Marshall Tommie scored three touch-
downs, one on an 80 yard run, as spring
football practice came to an end with a
scrimmage for eighth graders on Friday af-
ternoon.
Tommie took a bootleg for a long run
in the first half for the opening score of the
game as the offensive team broke more big
plays than in their first scrimmage on May
21, at the Brighton Reservation.
"We improved a whole lot in the last


epd isd the tac es 'h eow
The team showed they had a lot of tal-
ented linemen this spring. There was a lot
of hard hits and competition at the line of
scrimmage. Coach Rafe Erwin said some of
these linemen have a chance to do some-
thing with their high school careers.
"Up front we have a really good class
coming in. The kids have a shot to do some-
thing. They must work hard in the weight
room," he said.
Erwin said the coaches had nothing
to complain about because all of the kids

came out here this spring and improved. He
praised the offense as they executed several
plays well. He also praised the work ethic of
the group.
"Every week we came out here and had
improvement. These kids really worked
hard," he added.
Other highlights of the scrimmage includ-
ed some solid runs by Datron Smith, Adrian
Minondo Jr., and James Marcum.
Minondo rushed for 30 yards on six car-
ries. Marcum had some long runs of 18 and
20 yards in the game. He scored on a three
yard touchdown in the second half.
ruDatrion Smit~h had arn 18 yad touchdown

de Nheaal cmletded a couple of passes and
Coaches named Cody Dunn the defensive
player of the game. He had several solid hits
on defense. He has played football since he
was five years old and said he looks forward
to high school football.


"I thought spring practice and this scrim-
mage went well. We have a lot of bigger
players this year and that helps a lot," he
added.
Tommie said the offensive line has
blocked well and he expects that to con-
tinue in the fall. "Were strong and we have
a lot of heart. I feel a lot better after those


touchdowns. With me it's all about school
first and getting good grades. Sports come
second," he said.
