Okeechobee County Commis-
sioners heard some bad financial
news at their Thursday meeting.
"We are trying to hold the line
and live within the money available
to us," stated county administrator
Lyndon Bonner.
He predicted that in the next
budget year taxpayers would have


to pay the full emergency medical
services (EMS) assessment. Cur-
rently taxpayers are paying half
the recommended rate. Mr. Bon-
ner also predicted that the county
would go into the coming budget
year with a $4 million deficit.
He suggested using a Munici-
pal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU)
to finance the sheriff's office. This
would be a separate ad valorem


tax which would be applied direct-
ly to the sheriff's budget. He also
suggested instituting a sales tax.
Deputy County Administra-
tor Robbie Chartier reminded the
commissioners that they took $3.5
million dollars from reserves to
balance the current budget. "You
already have a $3.5 million deficit,"
she said.
"It's going to be a blend of in-


creased revenues and some addi-
tional cuts," Mr. Bonner said of the
budget for coming fiscal year.
"You are still getting more mon-
ey out of the citizens, you are not
cutting cost," asserted Commis-
sioner Ray Domer. "I just don't see
how we can be able to continue to
afford that."
Commissioner Domer asked

ate and listen to them. A lot will depend on
finances and whether they sign some of their
top picks," he added.
Brahman Coach Dylan Tedders said Craw-
ford definitely deserved to be drafted. He said
he had high round ability and potential. "If he
continues to improve at Florida they might try
to get him later on. There is no signing bo-
nus with a 42nd round pick, but if they have
money left from the other selections, you never
know." Tedders said he wouldn't be surprised
to see the Marlins make a fair offer near the
deadline for negotiations. "He was one of the
best pitchers in the area this year stuff wise.
It's good to see he was rewarded with being a
draft choice. That is a big deal for Okeechobee

Brahman hurler Jonathan Crawford was
drafted in the 42nd round of the Major League
baseball first year player draft on Wednesday
by the Florida Marlins.
Crawford is believed to be the first Brahman
to be drafted for baseball in at least 19 years.
"It feels pretty cool," Crawford said, "It's an
elite group you could say."
Crawford had fielded calls from the Kansas
City Royals as early as the fourth round of the
draft on Tuesday but was unable to reach an
agreement on financial terms.
Crawford will attend the University of Florida
and take summer courses. He intends to major
in construction management. The deadline for
him to sign a contract with the Marlins is Aug.
17. If no agreement is reached Crawford can
be drafted again next June.

Ryan Nielson

releRSed from


detention



Just four days after being returned to
a juvenile detention center, accused child
molester Ryan Nielson was released and is
back in Okeechobee County.
Nielson, 13, and his mother have moved
in with friends in an adult mobile home
park. The move complies with County
Judge Jerald Bryant's order handed down
Thursday, June 3. And because of that,
the teen was released from the St. Lucie
Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Fort
Pierce on Monday, June 7.
Judge Bryant ordered Nielson's return
to the juvenile facility due to his parents'
alleged lack of responsibility. As part of the
June 3 order, the judge said Nielson was to
stay in detention until his case was either re-
solved at trial or his parents found him an-
other place to live so that the alleged victims
would not have to see him.
Nielson was arrested in December of
2009 on seven counts of sexual battery and
six counts of lewd and lascivious molesta-
tion. According to an arrest report by Detec-

Tedders said when teams call you in the
fourth round they are serious about draft-

The board passed a resolution that would

since it does not address private contrac-

his probation officer, Sonya Washington,
that he wasn't allowed to do that.
Also in the home most of the day was
Ryan's 19-year-old brother Alex.
Neither Nick nor Alex had been approved
by DJJ to supervise their younger brother.
Ms. Washington testified at that hearing
that Alex could only supervise his young-
est brother in an emergency or unavoidable
situwads learned through testimony that
both parents were at work that day. Roderick
Nielson is an over-the-road truck driver and
Faith Nielson is a real estate salesperson.
After watching the video, Judge Bryant
said because there was no adult supervision
as stipulated in his April order he was send-
ing Ryan back to the Fort Pierce facility.
"Other than riding his dirt bike, Mr. Niel-
son hasn't done anything wrong. But, his
parents have," said the judge at last week's
hearing.
Nielson will be back in front of Judge
Bryant on Tuesday, June 15, at 9 a.m. for a
hearing on the status of his case. Mr. Albright
said they will discuss what is to happen next,
in regard to the teen's competency to stand
trial.
thAt May 02u4t-hae g ,t cabo thsisup
Dr. Michael Reardon, Dr. Deborah Lep-
orowski and Dr. Gregory Laandrum-all said
Nielson was not competent to stand trial at
this time. After reading the reports, Judge
Bryant said he wasn't satisfied because they
did not address some specific points--why
they felt the teen was not competent to
stand trial and what it would take to render
Nielson competent.
He then ordered the three doctors to pro-
vide him with supplemental reports to an-
swer his questions.
Mr. Albright said those reports are now
in and they will be discussed at next week's
hearing.
The next step, added the prosecutor, is
for Nielson to be evaluated by the Agency for
Persons with Disabilities (APD). When that
has been completed and the APD makes its
findings available to the court, another com-
petency hearing will be held.
"I would assume that would be a fairly
quick turn-around," said Mr. Albright of the
APD evaluation process. But, as for when
this case will actually go to trial, the prosecu-
tor couldn't say. The trial had been slated for
May 24 and 25.
"We can't resolve anything until the com-
petency issue has been settled," he said.

tive Rosemary Farless, of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), the alleged
victims were between the ages of 8 and 11
and all lived in the same Crooked Creek sub-
divi oen as Niel ease on Monday was not
met favorably by Assistant State Attorney
Ashley Albright, who is prosecuting the
case.
"I argued for secure detention," he said
Thursday. He said there are no other chil-
dren in the mobile home park where Niel-
son will be living.
Judge Bryant ordered that Nielson must
have adult supervision 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, and that he must always be
where an approved adult can see him. The
judge also ruled that the Department of Ju-
ventle Justice (DJJ) must go to the home at
least once a week to do a home check, said
Mr. Albright.
The prosecutor added that Judge Bry-
ant also on Monday approved several adults
srouh d frb oat teo uervs rNiesn 1
that DJJ would no longer have the author-
ity to approve adult supervisors, and that
only he or a judge sitting in for him could
do that.
After his '09 arrest, Nielson was taken to
the detention center where he stayed until
April of this year when the 4th District Court
of Appeals issued a mandate that Judge Bry-
ant release Nielson. The judge complied
with the mandate and allowed the teen to
return to his N.E. 122nd Drive home under
the stipulation that he: have 24-hour adult
supervision; not be in the front yard of his
home; not leave his home unless it was with
a parent or approved adult; and, could not
come within 100 feet of any of the alleged
victims.
However, a May 28 episode at the Nielson
home resulted in the teen being returned to
secured detention.
On that Friday a neighbor of the Nielson's
recorded a video of Ryan, his 18-year-old
brother Nick and a 17-year-old family friend
in the Nielson's back yard with a .22 caliber
rifle. At one point, Nick reportedly pointed
the gun in the direction of the neighbor's
back yard.
The video also showed Ryan riding his
dirt bike, even though he had been told by

Molesti ng
*Another case ofa child molesting ayoung-
er child is in the news--it says this was report-
edly going on for the past three years, so when
it started the older boy was 13 and the younger
boy was six. I think parents need some help
in ways to keep their children safe. Maybe the
schools could host something, bring in some
psychologists or law enforcement.
OCRA
*All of this infighting is why my kids
didn't play OCRA ball. It's a shame because
it seems the adults ruin it for the kids.
*Each one "thinks" their child or grand-
child is the second coming ofAlbert Pujols or
Tim Linceum. They live vicariously through
them hoping they will accomplish what was
unattainable for themselves. They are "arm-
chair wannabe's," thinking they know more
than the next "armchair wannabe" about a
particular sport. It gets real old, real fast.
*It is a shame that the adults ruin every-
thing for the kids. The biggest thing that I
noticed while attending games this season
was the jealousy of some of the parents and
coaches. It was unreal how jealous some
of the coaches and parents were of another
coach or team. I am not from Okeechobee
ande jt sat balk and litsenedtand watched
player just because of their success on the
field. I listened to parents ridicule other par-
eno Isfor lesuing hir kidsdpla ho hotlher base-
*The way I see it, sports is about com-
petition. Coaches are going to be competi-
tive and the kids will be too. If you are jeal-
ous because a certain coach whips your tail
every time you play him, then that means
you must get more competitive as a coach
as well as a player if you want to turn those
tables.
*Iwas at the tournament the whole

of fu o thA oids thre wash ,t lt of It l
ing and hollerin' going on with the kids and
I think it was a class act! The kids had a blast
and the fans got a real treat to see 5 and 6
year olds play ball the way they did. Some of
the plays were amazing. Way to go 'Chobee
for your win!


*The way I see it it's jealousy that black-
ens the eye of OCRA. It trickles all the way
down to the player on the field in some
cases.

Arizona laW
*Interesting that polls show that 80
percent of Americans feel that if someone
is stopped for another violation, the cops
should check their ID. If I was stopped for
running a stop sign, I would expect the cop
to ask for my driver's license and if I could
not produce it, I know I would be in trou-
ble.
*It's about time that we as Americans
take back what is ours. We have had so
much shoved down our throats for so long
that's its hard to breath. Law enforcement
should have the right to check to see if you
are here legally or not. God forbid that we
stop a problem before it gets to far out of
hand (like it hasn't already). With all the
drug problems we already have here, we
really don't need all the dregs of another
country adding to the problem. Let's help
the people of America first and foremost.

Foster families dinner
*A couple of weeks ago, the Department
of Children and Families, U~nited for Fami-
lies, has their annual dinner to honor Foster
Families. This is the first year they have of-
fered child care during the dinner because
all of these people have children. But, would
you believe that the dinner was held in Fort
Pierce and the child care was in Port St. Lu-
cie, a good half hour away? It seems kind
of weird that the people that make all the
u sfone fo fst rs pents tR Hd th ncnhtdhq e
in the same location.

Rough crossing still not paved
*Some time ago, OUA installed a utility
line across SW 32nd Street and 16th Avenue.
It is a very rough crossing and should have

time ago and had the final paying put down.
Instead, they have put up barricades, rough
road signs and 15 mph speed signs. Why
don't they fix it correctly instead of letting

Okeechobee News
The Coquina Water Control District Board
of Supervisors held their monthly meeting on
Wednesday morning, June 9 at the county an-
nex.
Chairman Melvin Byars stated that the draft
of the budget for the coming fiscal year would
be available at next month's meeting. He said
it looked like Coquina would collect most of
their assessments this year.


The grass carp which had been previously
purchased to control vegetation in the canals
will be delivered on Friday, June 11.
.Superintendent Danny Faircloth stated that
it is time for mowing again.
The board is going to hire a contractor to
spray excessive vegetation.
In response to a question Mr. Byars stated
that while the county is responsible for main-
taining the road bed on Peavine Trail, Coquina
is responsible for the ditches on either side of


the road since they are part of the Viking drain-
age system.
Mr. Faircloth will be gathering scrap metal
including old culverts for salvage.
The next meeting will be at 9 a.m. at the
Coquina shop on July 14. At that time the
board will be able to inspect any projects un-
derway.

Erin Morrow comes from a basketball
hotbed in western Pennsylvania. She has
been part of unbeaten teams as both a
player and an assistant coach. She is now
getting a chance at her first head coaching
job coaching girls basketball at Okeechobee
High School.
"I'm very excited about it," Morrow said,
"I kind of feel some pressure but I'm excited
about it. It will definitely be a challenge. I
want the girls to work hard and compete

anMt rsw atlecd naeve Hgh School
in Stoneboro, Pa. She earned an athletic
scholarship to Westminster College in New
Wilmington, Pa. She was an assistant bas-
ketball coach for her high school alma mat-
er from 2005-2007. She was also the coach
of the Yearling Middle School girls team for
the past two years.

grade. She said she likes the way her career
"s g'rd grade is my dream grade. I hope
it pans out. I have very high expectations,"
she noted
Morrow has selected Brahman alum
Vonsha Jarvis as her assistant coach. Jarvis
is one of the best Okeechobee players in
history. She earned an athletic scholarship


herself and played at Weber International
University.
Morrow said she hopes she can bring a
winning tradition in girls basketball to the
high school. "I know what it takes to win at
every level. I know what it takes to coach at
every level. Hopefully I can bring more suc-
cess here."
Okeechobee will lose a lot of seniors
from teams that won 32 games in the past
two years. Two key players will return Es-
sence Williams, and Calandra Youmans.
There are also a number of younger girls on
the JV ready for the promotion. The JV lost
just two games this year.


Morrow is familiar with some of the
freshmen and sophomores as she coached
then at Yearling.
"That was a good class a few years ago.
I know them and they are pretty hard work-
ers. I'll definitely push them. They will have
opportunities to step to varsity next year. I'm
looking forward to giving these girls oppor-
tunities and see what they do with it."
Morrow said she has been around bas-
ketball for ab out 20 years. One of her college
teams made it to the NCAA Division III tour-


nament. She is also proud of the fact that she
is one of two people at her high school who
have their names on the wall as a player and
coach involved with unbeaten teams.
Morrow said she received a lot of support
when she decided to take the high school
job in Okeechobee. She said that made her
decision easier. "I want to build a tradition
here in Okeechobee. If I didn't think I could
do that I wouldn't have taken the job," she
added.

Whether it's participating in a monthly
sporting clay target event sanctioned by the
National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA),
competing in the annual Seminole Cup, or
hunting quail, turkey or pheasant, the Quail
Creek Plantation just north of Okeechobee
provides something for everyone.
Escaping for an outdoor experience on
the 3,400 acres of land and water at Quail
Creek Plantation is something that thou-
sands of people have been doing each year
since the facility opened in the fall of 2001.
More than 3.5 million sporting clay targets
are thrown per year at Quail Creek, which
caters to over 1,000 quail hunters annually.
"Every year we are listed among the top
five sporting clay clubs in the nation by the
NSCA in terms of the number of competi-
tive sporting clay targets thrown," said Fred
Fanizzi, who has been managing the prop-
erty for owner Whit Hudson since he pur-
chased it in May 1998:
"When you combine that with our quail,
turkey and pheasant hunts, our lodging fa-
cilities, dining area and games-all in a re-
laxed and fun environment-we have a lot
to offer."
During the third week of February each
year, the Seminole Cup is held, sponsored
by Quail Creek Plantation and Seminole
Gunworks of Mims.
Six hundred-plus shooters from across
the country and the world converge on Quail
Creek for a week-long competition, spon-
sored by local businesses and the Okeecho-
bee Tourist Council.
The landscape at Quail Creek, which
has remained virtually unchanged since it
was explored by Ponce de Leon and Na-
tive American leader Osceola, is filled with
a variety of native grasses, oak and cabbage
palm hammocks, cypress creek swamps,
and pine trees and palmetto flats.
Quail Creek Plantation includes two fully-
automated, 14-station sporting clay courses
and a covered 5-stand course that are open
to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednes-
days through Sundays year-round, except for
holidays. A gunsmith is on-site, and shooting
clinics are led by NSCA-certified instructors.
equnters maytibring as much of heir oawn
and gun rentals available. Groups of up to 12
hunters can be accommodated, with each
group being led by an experienced guide.
Harvested game is cleaned, packaged and
chilled for hunters.
Quail Creek Plantation offers ten, one-
bedroom, dog-friendly cottages equipped
wihbw rels sntert flt -crceenntse vi i ns
sized refrigerators and microwave ovens. It

ilso olayeial udis unlimited catch-and-
release fishing on the private, 14-acre lake.
During non-hunting season (May through
September), buggy rides through the ranch
are offered. The main dining room seats 70
people, with room on the patio for another


24. It is available for weddings, company
functions and parties. The fare includes tra-
ditional Southern cuisine, Texas style brisket,
fresh seafood and prime streaks.
But it's not just about "selling" amenities
to customers at Quail Creek Plantation.
"We hold weekly charity events for
various organizations, such as Hospice of
Okeechobee, St. Jude's Children's Hospital
and the Boy Scouts of America, plus a variety
of fundraisers for local citrus organizations,
cattlemen's associations, builders associa-
tions, etc.," Fanizzi said.

Okeechobee News


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee has a new au-
tornobile dealership in a farnil-
iar location. On Tuesday, June
1 Okeechobee Dodge Chrysler
Jeep opened for business at 4224
U.S. 441 S.-the former location
of Arcardi-Milrot Jeep Chrysler
Dodge. The Arcardi-Milrot deal-
ership was bought by the Phil
Srnith Autornotive Group.
The general manager and
owner of the new dealership
is Ronald L. Kellenbenz, Jr. Mr.
Kellenbenz has worked for Phil
Srnith for 27 years. The group
has 11 dealerships and he has
Worked at eight of then. In the
past Mr. Kellenbenz said he was
-known as the "fix it guy." When
Phil Srnith acquired another
dealership Mr. Kellenbenz would
corne in and manage it long
enough to get it up to speed and
then move on. However, that
pattern has changed.
"I n here to stay," Mr. Kellen-
benz said. "I see great possibill-
ties for this town."


"It has produced decently
and I think it can again," he said
of his current location.
Mr. Kellenbenz said that Mr.
Smith and Eddie Arcardi sold
cars together in the 1970s before
Mr. Srnith bought his first dealer-
ship in 1980. He said Mr. Arcardi
had numerous opportunities
to sell his dealership to other
people. However, he sold to Mr.
Srnith because he knew hisern-
ployees would be taken care of.
The new dealership has hired
all 11 employees of the former
dealership.
The service department at
Okeechobee Dodge Chrysler
