An Okeechobee County grand jury hand-
ed down a true bill Tuesday and officially in-
dicted a third man on a charge of first degree
felony murder in connection with the March
2009 slaying of Angel Pulido.
Besides the murder charge the grand jury


on Tuesday, June 8, indicted Daniel Solo-
mon, 31, on two counts of robbery with a
deadly weapon, burglary of a dwelling with
an assault or battery while armed and pos-
session of a firearm or ammunition by a
convicted felon.
Also indicted Tuesday were co-conspira-
tors Brad Cardell Boswell and Hugo Fernan-
do Lopez-Martinez. Both men were indicted


on charges of first degree felony murder
with a firearm, robbery with a firearm or
deadly weapon (two counts each), burglary
of a dwelling with assault or battery while
armed, grand theft auto and cruelty to ani-
mals.
In addition, Boswell was indicted on a
charge of possession of a firearm by a con-
victed felon.


All three men are being held without
bond in the Okeechobee County Jail.
Boswell, 28, and Lopez-Martinez, 19,
were initially indicted on April 21, 2009. But
according to Assistant State Attorney Ashley
Albright the grand jury met this week to tie
Solomon in with the other two men, and to

Magistrate to

hear case of


dangerous dog
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In an unusual case, Okeechobee County Code En-
forcement Special Magistrate Lois Nichols will be asked
Tuesday afternoon to make a determination if a dog
should be declared "dangerous."
According to police reports, Chaos, a pit bull owned by
Norma Colon of S.E. 12th Avenue, attacked a neighbor's
dog, chased and tried to attack a neighbor's son, and on
two different occasions jumped out of the owner's car
window in attempts to attack people. If the dangerous
dog classification is upheld, Chaos will have to be con-
fined in a secure enclosure and the premises will have to

Reflections from the pulpit


about?" Well, E'm so glad you asked. You see, it
dawned on me that there is only one reason for
a plant or tree to bear fruit and that is to repro-
duce itself. The fruit is no good unless it serves
this purpose. Therefore, the fruit that I bear, if I
allow it to serve the purpose that God meant for
it, is for others to consume so that what Christ
is producing in me can be reproduced in those
who take and feed on the fruit I bear in Christ.
Here's what E'm getting at. At 51, I have
come to understand that the real ministry that
God has called me to is not preaching, or teach-
ing, or singing....No, the real ministry He has
called me to is: To bear His fruit and make sure
that it is made available to others to take and
feed on. At 51 I am learning that life is short (a
lot shorter than I had ever realized when I was
younger). But the fruit that God will produce in
me and allow me to bear can last for a very long
time; possibly forever. And that has made me
appreciate living just that much more because it
has given a passion to bear the fruit of Christ to
all those I come into contact with, especially my
family and my friends. I am realizing that God
allowed me to have a D-Day so that I could have
the privilege of bearing His fruit and hanging out
with people. What a joy!!

some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

Molestation
*Another case of a child molesting a
younger child is in the news--it says this
was reportedly going on for the past three
years, so when it started the older boy was
13 and the younger boy was six. I think par-
ents need some help in ways to keep their
children safe. Maybe the schools could host
something, bring in some psychologists or
law enforcement.
*If any adult catches someone with an
underage child, or catches two underage
children together in a sexual situation, then
it is the adult's responsibility to report it. De-
renddng on the situat on,sruefotn rto the

be appropriate to call DCF or law enforce-
ment. But to know about it and not report
just lets the problem continue and to esca-
late.
*I don't know what in God's name is go-
ing on right now with all of these arrests, but
I find it so sad so many innocent lives have
been destroyed. I was thinking today, in all
the talks that I had with my children grow-
ing up, I don't ever recall having a discussion
warning them to be careful of possibly being
molested by one of their peers. My husband
and I were discussing this today and trying
to figure out how something like this could
hegigo e n vy 1u n rm sd td m
ers' homes. We had about three great friends
(with other kids) and that's really the only
homes they were allowed to go to, spend
the night etc. All of this is so very sad.

Cong ratulations
*Congratulations to Okeechobee's Jona-
than Crawford on being drafted to play for
the Florida Marlins. Whether you decide to
go to college first or go right to the pros, we
wish you well.


Contemplating 'D-Day'
By Elder John T. Garner
More 2 Life Ministries
When the phone rang, I knew who it was
even before I looked on the caller ID. For the
last 20 years, my father has called me at exactly
2:15 p.m. every June 6th to ask me the exact
same question: "Well, are you celebrating D-
Day?" By D-Day he isn't talking about when the
allies stormed Omaha Beach in Normandy dur-
ing World War II (which happened on June 6,
1944). No, he is talking about something much
more personal to me and my twin brother,
James. You see, on June 6, 1959 my brother and
I came into this world and for my father that has
been D-Day or "Delivery Day" ever since.
If you are sitting there doing the math, you
would be right if your calculations brought you
the realization that I have reached the ripe old
age of 51 1 ,; .. . I can't say that it really means
that much to me. I was told by some well mean-
ing individual last year on my 50th birthday that
"life really begins at 50." At that time I couldn't
help but think that that person was mistaken.
All that I noticed was that life just continued at
the same hectic pace that it has been going on
sinchav benl tne elng a lot about life these

a ss, thtouh rayb iha tfe if isrn e
When I was a younger man, I have to admit
that I took life for granted. Until 50, I had always
been in relatively good health and, though not
a rich man by any stretch of the imagination,
very content with all that God had allowed
me to have in this life: a beautiful wife, three
wonderful kids, a daughter-in-law who is a true
blessing to our family, a roof over my head, food
to eat, the opportunity to be a pastor at More 2
Life Ministries (priceless), real friends, and the
list goes on. However, it seems that these days I
have come to understand that God has done so
much more for me than what I canhsee oro ho

ciated for the blessing that it is. It has become
more and more real to me that the relationships
we make in this life are the real riches that God
allows us to have.
In John 15, Jesus tells the disciples that they
are to bear the fruit that He will produce in their
life if they will continue to "abide" in Him. In
Galatians 5:22-23 we are told that the fruit He
will produce in us is "love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,
and self control." "So," you may be asking,
"what does that have to do with this idea of
being rich in relationships that you're talking

OPINION


Graduation nap
*My heart goes out to the Michigan
high school graduate who fell asleep on
stage while President Obama was giving his
speech. If he lives to be 110 he will never
live down dozing off during the speaker's
address at his graduation ... and because the
speaker was the U.S. President will make it
even more memorable. At the 50th reunion
of the graduating class of 2010 they will
probably have a blanky and pillow on his
reserved chair.
*If the kid on the stage -just a few feet
from the president-was falling asleep, how
bored were the kids in the audience?

County bud et deficit
*The story in the Friday paper, "County
faces $4 million deficit," should be a wake
up call for all voters of this county. Last year,
the county commission took $3.5 million out
of the reserve fund to balance the budget.
They can't just keep using up the reserves
because that money is there to get the coun-
ty through real emergencies, like hurricanes,
and bcans at this rat it twillronly take a

completely. They have to make real cuts in
spending. They can't keep raising taxes. We
are overtaxed already.
*Other counties the size of Okeechobee
make do with budgets that are much lower
than our county budget. It is time for the
county to cut back on expenses. We can't
afford to keep going the way we have been.
We can't keep paying higher taxes. It's time
to cut back on the expenditures. Do we re-
ally need a county manager and two assis-
tants? Other counties our size are not that
top heavy on the administrative costs. The
agri-civic c nter lsa money pit. Is there some

way t t cor nel uen i

the reserve funds, then it's time to get some
new county commissioners. Remember this
come election time in November.

Courthouse
*After seeing construction for so long, I
am glad to hear that the courthouse renova-
tions are finally finished and the courthouse
is reopened. I am glad that Okeechobee
County chose to preserve that piece of our
history.

An Okeechobee man will soon be re-
turned to prison after being found guilty of
attempted robbery with a
deadly weapon.
Arturo Garcia Jr., 28,
N.W. First St., was found
guilty by a six-nernber
jury Thursday, June 10,
and will be sentenced
July 26, said Assistant
State Attorney Don Rich-
ardson. Arturo
Garcia was also Garcia
charged with burglary of
a dwelling while arrned but was found not
guilty on that charge, added Mr. Richardson.
Mr. Richardson said he will ask Circuit
Court Judge Robert Belanger to sentence
Garcia as a prison release re-offender. If the
judge agrees, Garcia will get an automatic 15

amend the charges on Boswell and Lopez-
Martinez. The robbery charges were added
to the original charges against the two men.
"But the primary reason was to add Solo-
Inon in with thenn" the prosecutor said.
Arrest records show that Boswell, S.W
86th Ave., Okeechobee, and Lopez-Marti-
nez, E. 127th Ave., Tampa, knocked on the
front door of Pulido's three-bedroorn hone
on N.W. Seventh St. around
noon on March 18, 2009. A
short time later, Pulido was
shot and killed with a me-
diurn caliber handgun.
Pulido, 28, was shot
in the upper chest while
standing near the front
door of his borne, accord-
ing to investigators. Brad
Lead investigator De- Boswell
tective M.D. Faulkner, of
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO), said drugs were apparently the rea-
son for the killing. Solornon reportedly drove
the other two men to Pulido's borne.
"Their sole purpose was to go there and
steal drugs," he said. "Solornon did not actu-
ally go into the house."
The twornen also shot and killed Pulido's
pit bull, Fatboy. The 90-pound dog was shot


years in prison. Without that classification,
Garcia can receive a sentence of anything up
to 15 years, explained the prosecutor.
Department of Corrections (DOC) re-
cords indicate that Garcia was released from
the Okeechobee Correctional Institute April
24, 2009, after serving a nine-month sen-
tence.
On July 21, 2008, Garcia was sentenced
by then-Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Mir-
man to 14 months in prison after being
found guilty on two counts of possession of
cocaine with intent to sell and two counts of
sale/delivery of a controlled substance.
An alleged co-conspirator, Esteban Vil-
lalpando, 28, S.W Second Way, is currently
awaiting trial. He was arrested June 28, 2009,
on a charge of attempted arrned robbery. He
is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail
under a $25,000 bond.
Garcia, who also goes by the nickname
Tootie, was arrested July 2, 2009, after
in the head.
Boswell and Lopez-
Martinez allegedly took
an undisclosed amount of
money and drugs then fled
out the back door of the
DeBerry Gardens borne.
An unidentified 19-year-
old woman, who was said
to be Pulido's girlfriend, Hugo Lopez-
was in the horne at the Martinez
time but did not actually
see the shooting, stated the arrest report.
After the two men left the horne, she
locked the door.
However, the men returned and kicked
out the glass in the back door and again went
into the horne, the report
continued. Once inside,
they reportedly stole the
keys to her dark colored
Dodge Durango sport util-
ity vehicle and fled.
The wornan was not
injured.
Around 1:42 p.m. the I
two men were captured D nI
in the Bear Hollow sub- S ie a
division near Lake Placid. omn
Detectives said the men were in the process
of cornritting other burglaries in the hopes
of finding keys to another vehicle. They were
wanting to get rid of the Durango and steal
another vehicle so they could flee to Clear-
water, added OCSO detectives.


he tried to rob a 61-year-old man at knife
point.
According to an arrest report by Detective
Susan Morrison of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff 's Office (OCSO), Garcia went to the
inan's horne on June 28, 2009, and asked
the victim for his phone number. The man
then reached into his pocket and pulled out
his wallet to get the number, which was
written on a piece of paper.
When the victim pulled out his wallet
Garcia reached for it with his left hand and
swung a knife with a 6-inch blade at the
victim with his right hand. Garcia then de-
Inanded money from the victim.
The detective said the victim dodged the
knife then turned and ran to his bedroom in
the mobile horne with Garcia chasing him.
But when the victim grabbed a machete for
protection, Garcia turned and ran.
Garcia was later arrested on a warrant by
OCSO Detective M.D. Faulkner.
Solomon, who allegedly fled after hear-
ing the gunshots, was arrested the next day.
When OCSO detectives entered the hone
after the shooting they found a new litter of
puppies that had been sired by Fatboy.
"Their eyes weren't open yet," said OCSO
Detective Ted Van Dernan. The mother of the
puppies was outside the horne at the time of
the shooting and was not hurt.

Okeechobee News


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee School Board members will
consider a change in their transportation
policies that restrict students to one bus in
the morning and one bus in the afternoon.
A parent of a middle school and a high
school student, Donna Carter, addressed the
board for the second time on the issue at
the school board monthly meeting Tuesday.
She would like her children to be allowed to
have two stops. She is a divorced parent and
shares custody of her two children with her
former husband.
Ms. Carter said there are a lot of divorced
couples in Okeechobee who share custody
and a slight change in policy would make
it easier on them and not risk the safety of
their kids.
"Don't change the policy. I want two bus
dI er to knto my kids. Exptami tehe saft a
school," she told board members.
Ms. Carter suggests the change for high
school children only. Ms. Carter said the stu-
dent ID issued to high school students could
include their transportation plan. All bus
drivers would have to do is check that ID be-
fore a student is allowed to board the bus.
"There is no policy at OHS. Some kids
sneak on the bus and go to a boyfriend or
eo sndDaodu cm hb2. Tee owe a o
of divorced parents out there working hard
to run things smoothly. Let's make it easier
for them," she added.
Many school administrators said before


the policy was put 1
in place four years
ago, there were a
lot of horror sto-
ries and problems
with transportation.
School Transporta-
tion Director Louise
Piper said schools
got a lot of last min-
ute phone calls and Don Cart r
parent notes were on r
not given to school staff. Some parents notes
were forged or not signed and dated.
Ms. Piper said substitute drivers often
didn't know the students and they were al-
lowed on the wrong bus and taken to the
wrong location, even homes where no
adults were home. She noted there were a
lot of searches for kids on a weekly basis
with a number of frantic parents.
Adding toathseopfrtb 1 a pou t ai ri h
difficult to reach bus drivers at times. When
kids were missing, law enforcement was no-
tified which added to their workload.
Ms. Piper said the new policy resulted in a
95-yercent reduction in misplaced students.
T'he bus drivers have greater aware-
ness of irregular riders. Bus drivers ask more
questions and make sure the kids belong on
the bus before they: leave school," she said.
Several administrators defended the

msi n Tr ym enin pae ym II'ri
mius diveso why rh uld be on and
who shouldn't be on their bus. Should we
sacrifice safety for the convenience of par-


ents? I think we should put safety first," she
said.
Board member India Riedel said she
would also consider a change to the policy.
She said she would support a maximum of
two stops for children of divorced parents.
She said unfortunately there are a lot more
families that are split up these days.
"Emotionally it would be devastating to
me to lose a child. I am concerned for that
child as a parent, board member and a com-
mu ity nemb~erTh re is some wiggle room
Badmembers Kelly Owens and Gay
Carlton said the policy should remain as
written. The issue could be discussed again
at the school board meeting in July.

OllA Board of Directors was scheduled to
take action to replace the vegetation by ap-
proving an expenditure not to exceed $8,500
to Sandhill Environmental Services to re-
place trees and shrubs. Glades Electric was
willing to reimburse OUA up to $8,000.
However, John Hayford, OlA's executive
director, said he learned just the afternoon
before that sorne R Bar Estate residents were
going to court to try to get the Florida Depart-
Inent of Environmental Protection (DEP) to
replace the vegetation. The utility leases the
wastewater treatment plant site from DEP. In
light of the pending lawsuit, the board agreed
to postpone action on replanting vegetation.
It was not known if Glades Electric would
still contribute toward the replanting until
after the court case was settled.
In connection with the county's south-
west drainage project, the board voted to go
forward with a $150,000 project to relocate
a water line and replace a six inch water
pipe with an eight inch pipe. While OUA
wastewater lines are not in conflict with the
county's project, 01JA water facilities are in
conflict.

Florida Statutes
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that te
undersigned, desiring to engage In
busmness udercthedic tou~s n e d
Ave., In the County of Okeechobee,
In the City of Okeechobee, Florida
34974 intends to register the said
" ""owithh he loD slon poaCo~r oa

357279 ON 6/13/10


"The Florida peninsula has more than 1,300 miles of
coastline, and our commercial fishermen continue to work
hard to bring in their catch for the enjoyment of consum-
ers," Bronson said. "The commercial fishing industry is im-
portant to our state, and we want consumers to know that
they can buy Florida seafood with confidence."
The information that is available by calling the 1-800-
357-4273 hotline will also be posted online at the Depart-
ment's seafood web site http://www.FL-Seafood.com where
consumers can also find links to other pertinent web sites
including the Florida Department of Environmental Proter-
tion. Webcams placed at various coastal locations and in
retail establishments will be added to the web site later.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Florida Department of Environmental Protection,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration are continually monitor-
ing water and product samples.
"If and when the quality of Florida seafood is impacted
by the spill, we will take immediate action to close the wa-
ters to commercial seafood harvesting," Bronson said. "Our
commercial l fishermen take great pride in the quality reputa-
tion Florida seafood products have earned, and we would
never put any product on the market that would tarnish this
hard-earned reputation."


Hotline provides consumers with
latest information about Florida

Seafood availability

TALLAHASSEE-Seafood lovers who are confused about
the availability of Florida seafood products due to the Gulf
oil spill can now get daily updates about the ongoing com-
mercial harvest. The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services has implemented a new toll-free hotline
at 1-800-357-4273 to provide consumers with current infor-
mation about the status of Florida's open and closed fishing
harvest areas, the availability of seafood varieties, and gen-
eral pricing information.
"Because of the extensive news media coverage of the
Gulf situation, many consumers are confused about wheth-
er Florida seafood is being harvested and if it is available in
stores and restaurants," Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said. "We want consumers to know that
Florida's commercial fishermen continue to harvest whole-
some seafood products from the waters that are unaffected
by the oil spill. Florida seafood is safe and plentiful.
Bronson said the telephone hotline will be updated daily
with information about the Gulf situation. He also reminded
consumers that--in addition to the Gulf waters off Florida's
west coast--Florida's fishermen also harvest numerous
seafood varieties from the Atlantic waters off the state's east
coast.
