Alligators hunt in the water and near
the water's edge, so keep children and
pets away from ponds, lakes and ca-
nals where alligators might reside.


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A special town hall meeting will be held
Wednesday, June 23, that will deal with bud-
getary problems facing the two county pub-
lic safety agencies--the sheriff's office and
fire/rescue department.
Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May
has already tendered his 2010/11 proposed


budget to the Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners. That $17,059,651
proposed spending plan is 1.88 percent
less than last year's. The OCSO budget for
2009/10 fiscal year was $17,385,301.
Despite the reduced budget, OCSO Major
Noel Stephen said Wednesday, June 16, he
fully expects county leaders to ask that it be
cut even more. Sheriff May has cut his de-


apartment's budget three years in a row for a
total reduction of 7.33 percent.
In an effort to avoid such drastic mea-
sures as personnel layoffs, it is hoped that
public input at the town hall meeting will of-
fer ideas on how extra budget cuts can be
made.
"I hope to get input from the citizens on
what they expect," said Maj. Stephen.


He went on to say that he hopes that ei-
ther he or Sheriff May will be allowed "... to
do a 10-minute presentation on what com-
prises the sheriff's budget."
The special meeting will be held at the
Okeechobee County Civic Center on U.S. 98
N. and will begin at 7 p.m.

Two alligator attacks reported recently in
Glades County illustrate the need to observe
safety precautions around alligators.
On June i, a50-ya-l Loaac
ma n nsteealtedafor le /jo ies aftraba hle
ligator attack at Cabbage Woods Ranches in
northeast Glades County.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission Investigator JW Armstrong said
Oscar Sanchez Perez's dog had gone into a
pond to swim when the alligator tried to get
the dog. Mr. Perez went into the water to save
the dog and was bitten above and below the
knee
Mr. Perez was transported by friends to
Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee. He was
treated and released.


The dog escaped without injury.
According to FWC, they were unable to
locate the alligator.
In an unrelated case on May 26, a trap-
per removed a nearly 10 foot alligator after it
attacked and killed a dog in a canal behind
a trailer park at 3178 County Road 721 i n
Moore Haven.
FWC investigator Scott Van Buren said
three children and two dogs were playing in
the back yard when the alligator grabbed a
dog and took it into the water.
The alligator had apparently caused prob-
lems before. Resident Carole Taylor said she
had called the State Nuisance Alligator hotline
two weeks before this incident and didn't re-
ceive a reply.

Roads and water were major topics of dis-
cussion at the Tuesday evening, June 15 meet-
ing of the Okeechobee City Council.
Like the Okeechobee County Commission,
the city council reluctantly endorsed the pro-
posed route of a S.R. 710 expansion.
David Dangel of Inwood Consulting Engi-
neers presented the options for the S.R. 710
widening and extension project. Many local
officials have favored a connection with U.S.


441 N. in the area of Cemetery Road. However,
Mr. Dangel stated that traffic studies revealed
that by 2030 that route would generate 4,700
trips a day, not enough to justify the project.
A second suggested intersection at N.W. 23rd
Lane is projected to handle 10,900 vehicles a
day by 2030. However, the school district was
opposed to that route because it is adjacent to
the high school
The intersection his firm is recommending
to the Florida Department of Transportation
(DOT), just north of N.W. 13th Street is pre-


dicted to generate 14,300 trips a day by 2030.
However, that intersection location decision
is not final. Mr. Dangel said that at this time
there is no funding for the project beyond his
study. There is no money in the DOT five year
program for this project. He said that when
there is funding, the situation will be looked
at again and perhaps circumstances will have
changed. Mr. Dangel said that if the project is
dropped for more than one year, it will have to
be re-evaluated.

director of South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) Okeechobee Service
Center, gave an update on SFWMD activi-
ties.
Mr. Riter explained how the SFWMD sys-
tem has changed as population in the area
has increased since the Central and South-
ern Florida Project was authorized by Con-
gress in 1948. The purposes of the project
are flood control, water supply, navigation,
and protection and enhancement of the eco-
system.
Today the system consists of 2,669 miles
of canals and levees, 160 major drainage

pmp st t swsaten ntn rgioa fi cle st~a6
tions and headquarters.
Mr. Ritter said it was the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers that set the lake regulation
schedule and discharges even though SFW-
MD has some input into the process. Under


the current schedule the lake is maintained
between 12.5 and 15.5 feet. He said the lake
level is currently 14.4 feet going into the
wet season and SFWMD would like it to be
12.5.
"In the dry season we would like to put
as much water in our canals as possible."
He would like to see the lake at 15.5 feet dur-
ing the dry season.
Mr. Ritter said SFWMD is looking at how to
redesign the system for more water storage
to eliminate harmful freshwater discharges
to the coastal estuaries. He predicted that
the current section of Herbert Hoover Dike

20l2 But i ol 003 o 202 If reed e
entire dike is rehabilitated.
"We are in pretty good shape up here "
he said noting that the elevation is higher on
the northern end than at the southern end
of the lake.
Mr. Ritter paid tribute to Donnie Rob-
ertson, the city's public works director for
keeping the city drainage system open and
allowing rainwater falling in the city to flow
into the SFWMD system for disposal.
In the only action item on the agenda, the
council approved the employee group health
insurance plan presented by Mr. Whitehall.
Turning to awards, Councilman Dowl-
ing Watford, in the absence of Mayor James
Kirk presented Terisa Garcia, police services
coordinator, with a Twenty-Five Year Service
Award and Mr. Whitehall with a Five Year
Service Award.

Okeechobee's Longest-Estab se


for Publish Your News.


Continued From Pagfe 1

City administrator Brian Whitehall noted
that with the more southern intersection,
more traffic would be filtered into the city.
Mr. Dangel said the impact to local streets
would be studied.
"It's kind of disappointing," said Council-
man Dowling Watford, "I think the northern
most route is the most logical." He expressed
hope that the project would be delayed and
re- tos posble as part of this project that
C.R. 714 be realigned to form an intersection
with C.R. 15B.
Mr. Whitehall was instructed to write a
letter of support for the project.

mains.
The victim's mother reported to deputies

been shot and his body cut up in a wood
chipper, according to a press release.
Three others were also charged in con-
nection with the homicide.
Sheryl Carter, 45, of Clewiston, was
charged with accessory after the fact to
first degree murder, abuse of a dead body


and tampering with physical evidence. Mat-
thew Jones, 42, of Kissimmee, was charged
with two counts of tampering with physical
evidence, abuse of a dead body, grand theft
motor vehicle and accessory after the fact
to first degree murder. Timothy Winfrey, 44,
of Kissimmee, was charged with accessory
after the fact to first degree murder, grand
theft motor vehicle, arson of a vehicle and
tampering wit evi enee.
Winfrey also pleaded no contest to the

An Okeechobee man

$1,900 worth of electric-
ity from an area electrical
company.

theft. He was booked into
the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond
of$ 2,500.


According to an arrest report by Dep-
uty Howard Pickering of the Okeechobee
County Sheniff's Office, Reid had altered
the electrical meter to his Bassinger home
and had stolen a total of $1,933.35 in elec-
tricity.
The OCSO report states that power to
Reid's home had been turned off on Dec.
22, 2009. However, a worker with the elec-
trical company reportedly told Deputy Pick-
ering that he had been to Reid's home sev-
eral times and found that power had been
restored to the home.
Deputy Pickering went on to state that
the power company charges a $50 fee for
cutting the seal to the meter, as well as a
$200 tampering fee.

Dogs need help to stay cool

out li weki mOk oeseoeexpC ,thPrEouA i
offering lifesaving tips on caring for dogs.
SKeep dogs inside: Unlike humans, dogs
can only sweat through their footpads and
cool themselves by panting. Soaring tempera-
tures can cause heat stress and be physically
damaging or fatal.
SWater and shade: If dogs must be left out-
side, they should be supplied with ample wa-
ter and shade, and the shifting sun needs to be
taken into account. Where is the animal when
you are at work? Even brief periods of direct
exposure to the sun during a heat wave can
have life-threatening consequences.
.Walk, don't run: In very hot, humid weath-
er, never exercise dogs by cycling while they try
to keep up or by running them while you jog.
Dogs will collapse before giving up, at which
point it may be too late to save them.
SAvoid parked cars: Never leave a dog in
a parked car in warm weather, even for short
periods with the windows slightly open. Dogs

Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the com-
munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

$4 million budget deficit
*I object and take exception to everyone
saying that Obama and Congress are spend-
ing money like a drunken sailor. As a former
drunken sailor, I quit spending when I ran
out of money.
*I've noticed that the County's budget
has greatly increased, and not in propor-
tion to the number of folks that live here,
even counting our "northern visitors." Our
population was about 30,000 (according
to the census figures) back in the mid 80s
and now it's about 40,000 (according to the
census figures). Back in the 80s the budget
was about $35 million, or so, and by 2007
the budget peaked at over $114 million, and
even this year with all the "budget cuts" is
over $91 million. Now the question that re-
ally seems to be asked is what are we actu-
ally spending the money for? There's an aw-
ful lot of bosses and not so many workers.
And, you would think that with all of those
employees, things would get done fast and
efficient. But wait, that's a strange thought...
The reality is that it takes forever to get any-
thing done, they have to have meetings, and
all kinds of votes, and pay outside consul-
tants for "studies," etc. The county admin-
istration is about twice the size it was, but
about half as efficient and twice as slow as it
was back in the old days.
*Sounds like the county has too many
chiefs and not enough Indians. Why can't
they streamline the county government, let
the department heads run the departments
and quit trying to micromanage everything
Ifueach de sa trnntthas a un rvsr n strhae
tor, I don't see where we need all these as-
sistants. Or maybe they could take all those
assistants and put them to work researching
and writing more grants, since that seems
to be where most of the county's income
comes from anyway. Other counties our size
get along just fine without paying so much
for administration


*You don't have to increase spending to
have a $4 million deficit. There are certain
fixed costs that are due every year. The debt
is paid with tax money, including real estate
taxes. When the appraised value goes down'
ta rehis less emone comn na ebut leocors
and defaults, that money is not coming in ei-
ther. Even though a budget may have looked
5 years down the road, who knew the econ-
omy would be as bad as it is for as long as
it has been. People are also driving less and
using less gas, which is another big source
of tax dollars that is not coming in now. So
you may be saving money on your taxes, but
it will cost you in services somewhere down
the road '

Dangerous dog
*Ithink if the owner can't control the
dog, then they shouldn't own a dog
*People who own dogs that are vicious
always have the same story, "well ... my dog
has never bitten anyone before you must
have made him mad." What happened to
animal control taking care of animal cases?
I was bitten while my daughter and I were
ridding our bikes on a city street. The guy
came out of the house and yelled at me, not
the dog. He then hid the dogs away from his
house for about a month, so when animal
control came by, no dogs could be found.
Let's see... dog food in the garage, dog pen
in the yard, dog chain tied to a tree ...
*I don't understand why a dog case had
to go the magistrate to keep the dog in a
fence. County ordinance states that all dogs
have to be in a fence or otherwise contained
so that they stay on the owner's property. It's
called a leash law. Every time this dog left
the property, the county should have levied a
fine. And if the dog jumps out a car window
and attacks someone, then that is surely a
violation of the leash law. It is the owner's
responsibility to keep the dog under control
anytime they let that dog leave their house.
*If you own a dog, you need to be able to
control that dog. Maybe you need to take
him for training or learn more about dog


90na to otn sl th rdoa sl .thth he dets onbt
leave your property and hurt someone.

Road work
*Regarding the question of why the OUA
had not repaved the cut at SW 32nd Street
and SW 16th Avenue! The cut was made
and the sign was placed by the Okeechobee
County Road Department not the OUA.


trapped inside parked cars can succumb to
heatstroke within minutes-even if the car
isn't parked in direct sunlight.
SHot pavement: Dogs' footpads easily burn
on heated asphalt, pavement, and sand. Test
the road surface with your hand.
SPickups: Never transport dogs in the bed
of a pickup truck. This practice is dangerous-
and illegal in many states and municipalities-
because animals can catapult out of the truck
bed on a sudden stop or choke if they jump out
while they're tied up. Dogs' feet and bellies can
also get burned on the metal.
SStay alert and save a life: Keep an eye on
all outdoor dogs. Make sure that they have
adequate water and shelter. If you see a dog
in distress, contact humane authorities right
away and give the dog immediate relief by pro-
viding water.
"Wnhen in doubt, don't leave your dogs
out," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nach-
minovitch. "When heat waves like this strike,
it's better to be safe than sorry and keep your
animal companions indoors."
Again, please share this important informa-
tion with your readers during this life-threaten-
ing heat wave. For more tips, visit PETA.org.

OPINION









n


posts, this can be accomplished by mount-
ing angled barb-wire arms on the posts, and
attaching wire mesh or chain link to the
arms. A fence may help to deter an alliga-
tor from entering your yard, but you should
never assume that any fence will always
stop an alligator. Alligators hunt in water, or
at the water's edge. A fence that keeps chil-
dren and pets away from the water's edge
is more important than trying to keep alliga-
tors out of your yard.

How fast can an alligator run?
We know of no one who has measured
the ground speed of alligators. Actually, there
is little reason, in regards to advancing the
basic knowledge of alligators for population
management, to research this topic. Alliga-
tors are aquatic animals; they hunt and cap-
ture prey that is in or immediately adjacent
to water. Alligators and other crocodilians
will go on land to feed on dead animal car-
casses, and they may attempt to prey upon
confined or tethered animals. Although alli-
gators are capable of running, they use this
gait to flee threatening situations. There is
no documented evidence of alligators run-
ning after human beings. Also, there is no
basis to the myth that you should run in zig-
zag patterns to avoid a charging alligator. If
you do find yourself in the extremely unlikely
position of avoiding a lunging alligator, you
should run in a straight line away from the
alligator and it's habitat, which is where the
alligator will most likely retreat to.

life Service as similarity of appearance to a
threatened taxon. This designation does not
imply that alligator populations are threat-
ened; it's purpose is to provide safeguards
to protected crocodilians, such as the Ameri-
can crocodile and the black caiman (which
occurs in South America), by regulating the
management of alligators and the legal trade
in alligator products.

What was the largest alligator euver
recorded in Florida?
Female alligators rarely exceed 9 feet in
length, but males can grow much larger. The
Florida state record for length is a 14 foot
5/8 inch male from Lake Monroe in Semi-
nole County. The Florida record for weight
is a 1,043 pound (13 feet 10 1/2 inches long)
male from Orange Lake in Alachua County.

How many alligators are in
Florida?
Counting animals in the wild is one of the
most challenging tasks for wildlife scientists.
To attempt to census all of the alligators in
Florida would be difficult, time-consuming,
and expensive. We can, however, estimate
Florida's alligator population by determining
the amount of suitable habitat and the aver-
age density of alligators in that habitat. The
area of habitat can be estimated using geo-
graphic information systems, and alligator
densities are derived from alligator surveys
conducted by FWC staff. Based on this infor-
mation, we believe there are approximately
1.25 million wild alligators in Florida.

Can I use a fence to keep alligators
off my property?
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) recommends using
a standard 4 foot high fence, of either field
wire or chain link, with the bottom buried
approximately 6 inches in the ground. It's
important that alligators are prevented from
crawling under the fence at low areas. You
may also want to angle the top of the fence
in the direction of where an alligator might
approach. If you use standard pipe fence-


What is considered a "nuisance"
alligator?
Generally, alligators may be considered a
nuisance when they are at least four feet in
length and pose a threat to people or their
pets or property. Alligators less than four feet
in length are usually not considered a nui-
sance because they are:
Naturally fearful of people;
Not generally capable of eating any-
thing larger than a small turtle -- they eat
small fish, frogs, and other small animals;
*Too small to be a threat to even small
pets and pose no threat to people;
*Typically not dangerous to people un-
less someone attempts to handle them;
*Common in Florida and the mere pres-
ence of a small alligator is not cause for
concern, even when they turn up in places
where people may not expect to see them
such as drainage ditches.
*However, occasionally alligators less
than four feet in length are legitimate prob-
lems and must be addressed. Call the Nui-
sance Alligator Hotline if an alligator less
than four feet in length:
Approaches people;
Does not retreat if approached; or
Is in a location that is not natural (such
as a swimming pool).
If you have a nuisance alligator call the
Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-FWC-
GATOR (1 -866-39 2-4286) .

What happens to alligators when
they are removed by trappers?
When a nuisance alligator trapper re-
moves an alligator, it becomes the property
of the trapper. In most cases, the alligator is
killed and processed for its hide and meat.
Occasionally, a nuisance alligator is sold
alive to an alligator farm, animal exhibit or
zoo. Nuisance alligator trappers work under
contract with the FWC; they are not state


Why doesn't the FWC relocate
nuisance alligators?
Florida has a healthy and stable alliga-
tor population. We have about 1.25 million
alligators in Florida. Alligators live in all 67
counties, and they inhabit all wild areas of
Florida that can support them. The removal
of nuisance alligators does not have a signifi-
cant impact on our state's alligator popula-
tion. Relocated alligators often try to return
to their capture site. They can create prob-
lems for people or other alligators along the
way. If an alligator successfully returns, cap-
turing it again would be necessary and likely
more difficult the second time.
To avoid creating a problem at the re-
lease site, nuisance alligators would need
to be relocated to remote areas where they
would not encounter people. These remote
areas already have healthy alligator popula-
tions, and the ones that already live there
have established social structures. The in-
troduction of a new alligator to these areas
would likely cause fighting, possibly result-
ing in the death of a resident alligator or the
introduced alligator.

Is the American alligator an
endangered species?
Historically, alligators were depleted from
many parts of their range as a result of mar-
ket hunting, poaching, and loss of habitat.
Inl967, the alligator was listed as an endan-
gered species (under a law that preceded
the Endangered Species Act of 1973), mean-
ing it was considered in danger of extinction
throughout all or a significant portion of its
range. The Endangered Species Act pro-
hibited alligator hunting, allowing the spe-
cies to rebound in numbers in many areas
where it had been depleted. Alligators were
down listed from endangered to threatened
in 1977, and, in 1987, the American alligator
was reclassified by the U.S. Fish and Wild-


erty. Nuisance alligator trappers work under
contract with the FWC. The sale of the al-
li atsoartiide and meat is their primary com-
p ton
FWC said the state doesn't try to relocate
captured nuisance alligators because they
often try to return to their former home.
That can create problems for people or oth-
er alligators. If an alligator does return to the
capture site, recapture is likely to be more
difficult the second time.
The nuisance hotline is 1-866-FWC Gator
of 1-866-392-4286.
According to the FWC, alligators are op-
portunistic feeders and will eat what is read-
ily available to them. They prefer to go after
prey they can overpower easily. Opportunity
is the primary factor that causes an alligator
to pursue prey.
Most alligators are naturally afraid of hu-
mans, but may lose that fear when people
feed them. Feeding alligators actually teaches
them to associate people with food. For that
reason, it is illegal to feed wild alligators.


Alligator bites are most likely to occur
in or around water. Although alligators can
move quickly on land, they are not well-
adapted for capturing prey out of the water.
However, they can lunge at prey if within a
few feet of the shoreline.
Some bites are the result of accidental
collisions. When a swimmer bumps into an
alligator, the reptile may inflict a defensive
bite at whatever just bumped into it. This
sometimes happens in golf course ponds
when people retrieve golf balls.
Alligator bites can result in serious infec-
tion--therefore, victims should seek imme-
diate medical attention if bitten.
The FWC allows an annual alligator har-
vest, which provides commercial and recre-
ational hunting opportunities and assists in
helping to achi eve population-manag ement
objectives. Alligator hides, meat and their
parts can be sold from legally harvested and
tagged alligators.

State authorities said they had no record
of any complaints in this area before this in-
cident.
The FWC said alligators are more active
this time of year due to the annual mating
season. In 2009, the FWC received more
than 14,000 nuisance alligator complaints.
Alligator trappers were issued nearly 11,000
permits and tags and removed nearly 8,000
nuisance alligators.
State officials said alligators are typically
not dangerous to people unless someone at-
tempts to handle them. They note the mere

concern even when they turn up in places as

William Floyd Talbert
GLASFORD, Ill. William Floyd Talbert was
born April 21, 1943 in Peoria, Illinois, to Jesse
and Pearl Talbert. He died unexpectedly at
home Friday, June 11, 2010.
Bill married his high school sweetheart Frieda
Fay Schulz on Aug.
26, 1962. Over the
years they lived in Il-
linois and Washing-
ton State while he
worked and traveled
for Country Finan-
cial. He loved his
work in sales and
management, retir-
ing from Country in
2004 after 27 years.
Bill was an eternal
optimist, al-
ways finding good in every person he
met. He never knew a stranger and filled his
planners with places to go and people to see.
Bill was a storyteller, enthusiastically sharing his
past and his plans for the future with everyone
around the table. He loved his family and truly
believed in each and every one of them. He was
supportive and kind, always ready to listen and
offer his experience.
He loved the outdoors, especially his annual
vacations out West with his family. Although he
hiked peaks across Wyoming, Montana, Wash-
ington, and the Canadian Rockies, to Bill every
landscape was beautifully different, and every
landscape was an inspiration. He and Frieda
rode their Harleys all over the country. Bill loved
his life and wanted to share that with everyone
he met.

Bill was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. His
greatest hope was that his friends and family
would find the peace he had come to know as a
Christian.
After retiring from Country Financial he and
Frieda began wintering in (di.. .. l. In Fla.,
where he enjoyed the sunshine, bike riding,
speckled perch and making new friends
wherever he went. He was an active member of
F~... lcl,1.1 z Baptist Church where he loved his
Florida church family. Back in Illinois they re-
turned to the farm where Bill grew up. With the
help of many supportive friends and family, they
recently fulfilled their lifelong dream of building
their own home.
He was preceded in death by his parents
Jesse and Pearl. He is survived by his wife, Frief
da; daughter, Catherine ('Ibdd) Tilly; sons, Joe
(Hannah) Talbert and Bill (Tonya) Talbert.

BUDGE T
Continued From Pagfe 1

The major pointed out that on the law
enforcement side of the budget, one full-
time position and two part-tirne positions
have already been eliminated.
Similar moves have been made on the
corrections side where: one part-tirne po-
sition has been removed; five detention
deputy positions are now filled by civilians
instead of state certified officers; adrninistra-
tion staff has been moved to shift work to re-
duce overtime; a medical detention deputy
has been put on shift; and, two vacant posi-
tions have been left open.
Major Stephen also pointed out that the
jail's budget has been cut from $6,674,992
last fiscal year to a proposed $6,533,957 for
2010/11 Th iisn a erads of e.6 fie s n
in the jail reduces the corrections budget be-
cause the civilians are, in fact, cheaper since
the sheriff doesn't have to pay for then to
go through the law enforcement academy.
And, since they are not state certified officers,
they are not eligible for high nisk retirement.
These employees fall under the regular risk
retirement which is a Inuch lower rate and
saves the sheriff even more dollars.
One budget hit the sheriff takes, and
does so willingly, cornes in the form of the
Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force.
In the past federal monies, in the form
of the Byrne Grant, have helped to fund the
task force. However, that funding has been
drastically reduced and the sheriff will have
to absorb the $425,240 cost to operate the
special unit. The sheriff's office will only re-
ceive $94,950 from the grant for the 2010/11
budget year. These funds pay the salaries,
benefits and costs of the task force.
But Sheriff May has made it clear that he
will not hesitate to absorb those costs be-
cause the benefits from what that unit does
outh igshi wa w'v been fighting," said
the major. "We feel we have to absorb
this."
Maj. Stephen said a change is being made
in that one of the detectives in the task force
will be reassigned to work prescription pill
cases. This means there will now be two de-
tectives working these cases full time.
One funding option for the sheriff 's of-
fice that has been suggested by Okeechobee
County Corniissioner Joey Hoover is the
Multi Service Taxing Unit (MSTU). The sher-
iff's office is currently funded by ad valorern
taxes which are only paid by property own-

A 1986 graduate of Okeechobee High
School, Kerry Parks is back working in
Okeechobee as a trainer and boxing instrue-
tor at the new Gladiator's Gyrn
Parks rushed for 1,200 yards during his
senior year in high school to earn a schol-
arship to play at Marshall University. He en-
joyed a solid college career with the Thun-


during Herd and then went into a career as
a teacher, a professional boxer, and now as
an actor.
Parks, who taught disabled students for
16 years, still holds down a job as a physi-
cal education teacher at Dan McCarty Middle
School in Fort Pierce. In his spare time he
cornes to Okeechobee to help kids get into
better condition.
"It's always good to corne back hone


and give back. I feel that giving knowledge,
love and respect are something I can give
without losing anything. You gain from do-
ing those things," he said. "It's been real fun
and a blast for me.
Parks has appeared in seven movies
andklvis sverdl other movie project in t
is available on DVD. He is filming "Heart \f
a Lion" in St. Lucie County. "No Way Out"
is a movie with an urban setting that had a
there about street gangs and drugs. "Heart
of a Lion," is another movie about gang
violence. In the movie, Parks plays Calvin
Malone, an ex fighter who lost just once in
his career as an amateur to another boxer in
his borne town. He returns borne and tries
to set up a charity boxing match between
then, but it results in more gang violence.
Parks said a major movie company, Lions
Gate, could pick up the film and distribute
it nation wide.
"I'rn real excited about how acting is go-
ing. I've been blessed to get a lead role. I've
got a couple projects later this year. Its really
going good for me," he added.
Parks competed in 23 professional fights
in several cities across the United States, and
also in Puerto Rico and Africa. He was a
super middle weight and light heavyweight
and got to meet such farnous fighters as
Pernell Whitaker and Buddy McGirt. He also
was able to fight two boxers ranked in the
top 10 in the world at the time.
Parks said he was proud of his boxing


career in which he finished 10-10-3. He said
with no big money or trainers behind him,
he felt he did pretty well in the boxing ring.
"It got to the point where you were away
from horne for eight weeks, and it was rough
mentally," he said. "It was time to walk away
andhdols miething else. I didn't want to risk
During his high school career at OHS,
Parks also ran track and qualified for the
state meet in the 200 meters. He was also
part of a record setting 4 by 100 tearn that
included another world class athlete, Reggie
Rernbert, who went on to play in the Nation-
al Football League.
While at Parks was at Marshall University,
the Thundering Herd made it to the NCAA
Division I-AA championship game where
they lost in a shootout to North East Louisi-
ana in Pocatello, Idaho. Parks had suffered a
knee injury that year and missed the oppor-
tunity to play in the championship game.
Parks said he has learned something
about competition in the past 25 years as an
athlete and that is don't be afraid to pursue
something you want.
"When your life is over, you want to be
able to say I did everything that I desired to
do. I have earned a lot of respect during my
career," he said. "I always gave it 110 per-
cent and you can't do Inuch more."
Parks said he doesn't try to be a role
model. He said the only ideal role model is
Jesus Christ.

In light of Michelle Obarna's national ini-
tiative to fight childhood obesity, Everglades
Elementary has awarded its students for
their efforts in the 2009-2010 Greater Gator
Mileage Club. Much like the First Lady's "Get
Stepping" program, the Greater Gator Mile-
age Club strives to fight childhood obesity
through education and physical activity. Stu-
dents at Everglades participate in a walking
program and learn that walking can be a fun
and rewarding life time activity.
Through the P.E. Department at Ever-
glades Elementary, and during a portion of
class time in the school day; students earn
points by walking or jogging laps in "Gator
Walks." These Gator Walks (adapted from
Fitness Finders) are recorded on each class
and student for the number of laps corn-
pleted. Students also have an opportunity
to earn extra laps by walking the scenic trail
at Lock 7 on the second Saturday of each
month (October through March). These
Saturday morning walks are held from 8:30-
9:30, and allow parents, students and teach-
ers to corne together for sorne fresh air and
exercise. Students that bring farnily nern-
bers to the Saturday morning walks can add
their lap counts and be awarded the extra
laps. The extra laps are then added to their
class totals. The class with the highest lap
count won a pizza party at the end of the
year. Individual students were also awarded
many other prizes such as gator toe tokens,
certificates, medals, and trophies. The win-
ners were presented their awards when
all totals were calculated at the end of the
school year.
Coaches Forde and LaPenna and Coach
Darrell Ferneau (retired '07), were very in-
pressed with the results this year and notice


that the program has steadily been growing
in regards to participation. Much like the
"Get Stepping" program which is now a
national initiative, our local students at Ever-
glades Elementary have been "Gator Walk-
ing" for six years now. The P.E. Department
was proud to honor the 2009-2010 Greater
Gator Mileage Club winners.

Okeechobee opens play in the Dixie
Youth Baseball District 8 Ozone tourna-
ment tonight in Avon Park.
The Ozone division is for players 12
and under. Others in the tournament in-
clude Avon Park, Lake Placid, Desoto and
Sebring.
Okeechobee tangles with the tourna-
ment host in the first round. Game time is
8 p.m. at the Avon Park recreational com-
plex west of U.S. 27. Sebring already has
earned a bye into the state tournament as
they will be the tournament host on the
weekend of July 10th.
Okeechobee Coach Brent Stuart said he
is very excited to see how Okeechobee will
do in the tournament. "I think we have a
strong group of players," he said. "Our of-
fense is strong and our pitching is strong."


Some of the key players on the team
include Layton Thomas, Patrick McDonald
and Baron Stuart. The team is comprised
of 12 all-stars.
"We have had strong pitching in general
in our league this year. I wouldn't bet like it
was a horse race but I feel we will have one
of the stronger teams in the tournament,
he added.
Helping Okeechobee chances is the
fact that three teams from the district will
advance to the state tournament. Since
Sebring is the host, whatever they do at
this tournament will basically be practice
for them. It will be a double elimination
tournament and will run until Thursday,
June 24.
"I think we are as good as any of the
team. I won't be over confident but I think
we will play very well," Stuart said.

Lou Gomez of Okeechobee Police fin-

.Okeechobee Undersheriff Noel Stephen
said historically the bass tournament has
had around 30 boats. He said there should
be a positive impact for lodging, gas sta-
tions and restaurants for three days. "We are
proud that the Police and Fire Games have
chosen Okeechobee for their Bass Tourna-
ment. The fishing is great and we appreciate
them visiting our County."
Stephen said there has already been
some discussion of the bass tournament
remaining in Okeechobee for the next two
years.
He said a few Sheriff's employees and
some at Okeechobee County Fire Rescue
are expected to compete in the bass tourna-
ment this weekend.
Officials expect a positive economic

June 18, 2010


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Melba Franklin had been cited for using
an RV as a dwelling on N.W. 36th Street, at
the Tuesday hearing of the Special Magistrate
regarding violations of the county code. She
told the special magistrate that the RV is no
longer occupied and the water, septic and
sewer have been disconnected. She was
given until next month to finish cleaning up
the property.
John Keith Cook was given until July 15
to clean up his S.E. 60th Drive lot and until
Sept. 16 to replace siding and skirting on a
mobile home on the property.
James Myers was given until July 15 to
clean up his overgrown S.E. 36th Avenue
propa Nissan stated that he had obtained
a building permit and inspection for his
138th Street property and that he was work-
ing on correcting the discrepancies found in
the inspection. He was given until July 15 tO
come into compliance.
Earl and Krystal Hoover were ordered tO
appear before the special magistrate again
in September for a status review.
It was noted that David Morris had made
significant progress toward bringing his S.E.
21st Court property into compliance. He
was given until Nov. 11 to remove or obtain
a permit for the shed on his property.
The cases against Glonia Jean Vonderau,
Penny Chaisson, and Howard Richards were
continued until next month.


The case against Christopher Amsden
was not heard because of lack of proper no-
tification. The properties of Marc Minkoff and
Phillip McCallister were found to be in com-


pliance and those cases were not heard.
