A budget discussion at
the Thursday June 24 meet-
ing of Okeechobee County
Commissioners brought
about sharp disagreement
between county adminis-
trator Lyndon Bonner and
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul May.
Mr. Bonner gave a report
on the town hall meeting
the night before. He said the
town hall meeting, which
was held at the civic center
was well attended. The pur-
pose of the meeting was to
discuss the budget for public
safety.
"I learned a lot from the
meeting," he said, adding


that the people were frustrat-
ed and some of them were
scared. He said the people
who spoke did not want
any cuts in public safety ser-
vices.
Mr. Bonner stated that ex-
penditures went up in 2006,
2007 and 2008 because of the
hurricanes while revenues
went down. During those
three years he said money
was taken from reserves to
balance the budget.
"We think the trend will
flatten out," he optimistically
predicted, adding "They are
not renewable dollars."
The administrator pre-
dicted a $3.9 million deficit

A convicted sex offender is back in jail af-
ter being accused of stabbing another man
with a screwdriver.
Billy Junior Jolly, 53, N.E. 20th Court,
Okeechobee, was arrested
Tuesday, June 22, on felony
charges of aggravated bat-
tery and aggravated assault
with deadly weapon with-
out intention to kill. He was
booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail under a
bond of $75,000.
An arrest report by
Deputy Sarah Green of the Billy Junior
Okeechobee County Sher- Jolly
iff's Office (OCSO) stated that Jolly and the
43-year-old male victim becarne embroiled
in a verbal argument shortly before 8 p.n.
Tuesday. The argument becarne physical
and ended when Jolly allegedly stabbed the
other man in the chest with a Phillips-head
screwdriver.
According to the report, after the victim


was stabbed he still wanted to fight Jolly. But
by this time, Jolly had reportedly armed hirn-
self with a baseball bat.
Deputy Green's report indicates that
when she arrived at the horne the victim
was bleeding from his chest, and that he
was taken to the Raulerson Hospital erner-
gency room for treatment. The report does
not state if the victim was admitted to the
hospital, or released after treatment.
Clerk of Court records show that on Oct.
1, 1992, Jolly was sentenced to 15 years in
prison by Judge William Hendry after being
found guilty of battery, burglary of a dwell-
ing, lewd and lascivious assault or act and
aggravated assault. He was released from
prison July 18, 1998.
Those sarne records indicate that Jolly
was slated to go before Circuit Court Judge
Robert Belanger for docket call on Thursday,
June 24, regarding his Oct. 5, 2009, arrest on
grand theft and dealing in stolen property
charges.

Letters to the Editor


*Remove plant growth or obstructions
in drainage ditches that may prevent the
flow of water. (Remember, standing water
gives mosquitoes a place to lay eggs).
Most people who become sick from mos-
quitoes have mild symptoms like headache,
fever, dizziness and fatigue, but more severe
symptoms are possible. Anyone with severe
symptoms should see their health care pro-
vider. Physicians should contact the county
health departments if they suspect a person
may have a mosquito-borne illness.
Another thing that you can do to help the
spread of some mosquito-borne illnesses is
to report wild bird deaths. Anyone who dis-
covers a dead bird is encouraged to report
it on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's website at www.My-
FWC.com/bird/.

POlicO
*On Friday, June 18, I took my visiting
6-year-old grandson to see the movie, "Ka-
rate Kid." We enjoyed the movie but, on
the way out, there were older boys having
a heated argument. It seemed like a fight
was beginning. A lady, possibly a mother,
was hollering and trying to get a boys to
stop. I was very nervous and tnied to leave
as quickly as possible, so as not to be in the
Idne of tr ublea UucaledIh~al e, tetel ap g
I didn't have the phone with me and I just
wanted to get home and tnied not to seem
too nervous around my grandson. Maybe
a cop should patrol that parking lot on Fni-
day nights. Editor's note: According to the
theater owner, the movie theater shift
manager did call police in regard to the
two teens shouting at each other. "l hope
that the community as a whole does not
fudge one incident. "Please be assured
we were aware and did remedy the situ-
ation, the theater owner stated.

Tourism
*As I watch the feed about the mess this
oil leak is making I have to wonder where
t Northern Visi os 11l thoeco e fallM Te

rcle )t soelabt no rre w vtehr ye

and find out what they do when they are on
the coasts? Shop, sun bathe, golf, gamble,
fish, crafts, take classes-and check off what
we have and see if we can start what is miss-
ing? Anyway get it together and offer them
what they do someplace else or activities
that might entice them to give Okeechobee
a try? And get the tourism pamphlets to the
Florida info sites and rest stops.

Buy American
*Buy American and keep Americans
working. If all American shoppers would
take the time to read the labels and buy
American-made products, we would not be
losing so many jobs to other countries.


*The main thing is to check the label. I
went to the store today and out of curiosity
I looked at some of the candy labels. Her-
shey's regular chocolate bars, Hershey's
with almonds and all of the other regular size
Hershey bars I saw were made in the USA.
Hershey kisses were made in the USA. Her-
shey miniatures were made in Mexico (must
be onem dfthehpecialtyS items) Rees rCup

Patties were made in Mexico. I also noticed
that my favorite soft peppermint candies are
made in Mexico so I will be skipping those
from now on.
*Companies that have kept the jobs in
this country should work on campaigns to
get the message out to buy "made in the USA
products and save USA jobs." Does anyone
remember the old "look for the union label"
ads? I remember seeing those when I was
a kid and it really made a good point, that
when you buy American, you are helping
American workers support their families.

Prairie rutS
*I live on the prairie. Coquina sends
these dump trucks down my road which
causes ruts. When I call to fix ruts they send
a grader which makes it worse. I have doc-
tor's appointments I need to get to and the
last time I drove down my road I got stuck
for two hours in my car. Is there any legal
action I can take for not having the use of a
public access road due to Coquina destroy-
ing my only access to town? I've been stuck
hretfor a weekkunless neighbor who has a

Budget deficit
tnAll ttis talk ou oth bu g pt isipr
the current budget was not passed without
arguments. I know that some of the com-
missioners publicly spoke against the deficit
spending and the borrowing from reserve
funds. I even attended some of the meetings
and can tell you the discussions were pretty
heated. The final vote was 3 to 2. So, to talk
about getting rid of all the commissioners is
not right because not all voted for the budget.
3 did, and two did not. I suggest those who
favor a more conservative budget make an
effort to encourage the commissioners that
are trying to hold the line against the irre-
sponsible borrowing from reserve funds. If
we don't, we're just kicking the can further
down the road because those funds must be
repaid further down the road.

OPINION


Here comes the rain, so here
come the mosquitoes!
We all know that the summer heat also
brings us the summer rains, so it important
to protect yourself against mosquito-borne
diseases. The Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments monitors for the pres-
ence of illnesses carried by mosquitoes in-
cluding West Nile virus infections.
Protect yourself by using the 5 Ds:
*Dusk and Dawn -That's when mos-
quitoes are out and looking for the next
bite! Avoid being outdoors just before the
sun comes up and just before the sun goes
down.
*Dress -Try to wear light clothing that
covers most of your skin.
*DEET-Use insect repellents containinS
DEET, but talk to your health care provider
before you use this product on children.
Gtrdrainage -sCh ck around yocul omled
tires, buckets, etc., where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs.
Using repellent can help protect against
being bitten by a mosquito, but make sure
you follow these tips for correct repellent
use: Read label directions carefully. Some
repellents are not suitable for children. Ac-
cording to the CDC, mosquito repellents
containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should
not be used on children under the age of 3
dears. DEET ishnot recommended ondchil-
wit co nrtatiaonns nof stoo 30 per en
DEET are generally recommended. Apply in-
sect repellent to exposed skin, or onto cloth-
ing, ut not nder clotkhmg.idosrms-

on it nti sohed eb used over carriers
Here are some tips for getting rid of mos-
quito breeding sites around your home:
Cl thean out te gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds so water can drain.
*Turn over or remove empty pots or
buckets.
*Pick up all beverage containers and
cups after use.
*Check tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
*Replace water in birdbaths or other pet/
animal feeding dishes at least once a week.
*At least once a week, change the water
in plant trays or hanging plants.









Zombie attack: Emergency plan draws attention


'Special emphasis should be placed on survival techniqueS
relating to combat ... Hollywood has generally ruined people'S
perception of how to protect yourself from zombies, and a great
OffOft Will haVe to be made to undo many people's false notionS
Of SUrViVal methods against the Horde. Chainsaws look great

moved from the fictitious scenario response,
and applied to realistic scenarios. This docu-
ment was hosted here to allow other plan-
ners easy access to it for their review and
consideration. This plan was taken from the
Long-Term Recovery Annex to our County
CEMP. The County in no way endorses or
recognizes this as any official plan, nor is it
ever intended to serve as such.
"Since you are already here and read-
ing this, please take the time to review the
remainder of the site for information about
preparing yourself, your family and your
businesses for disasters. It is my hope that
any traffic to this site takes the time to re-
view or download materials they can use
to better prepare themselves for true disas-
ter incidents. Please use whatever we have
among our many information pages, our
templates and documents to improve your
ability to be a survivor."
He said since the general public found
out about the zombie page, the response
has been overwhelming positive. How long
the information will stay on the EOC site'
however, is up to the county commission.
Thanks to the attention to the zombie
exercise, traffic to the EOC web site has in-
creased and people are now talking about
preparedness, Mr. Faulker said. "If this
causes even one person to put together an
emergency plan to protect their children
and their spouse, this exercise has been a
rousing success."

ment that has been on the EOC web site for
more than a year was discovered by internet
posters and the media.
An Okeechobee News reader who
posted a comment on the www~newszap.
com Okeechobee Local Issues forum was
surprised Wednesday to discover a Zombie
Apocalypse Emergency Management Plan
on the official Okeechobee EOC web site.
The reader said the link came from a friend
who found it by chance during an internet
search about zombies. The web page, www.
okeechobeeeoc.com/AnnexZ.htm, consid-
ers the special challenges faced by local gov-
ernment during a pandemic coupled with a
massive social uprising. For the purpose of
this "table top" exercise, the pandemic is
caused by an outbreak of zombieism.
By Wednesday afternoon, word spread
about the web page, as a discussion about
it continued on the public forum on www.
newszap.com, and comments were posted
on social networking sites such as Twitter
and Facebook. By Wednesday evening, it
was on the Channel 5 News.
Quotes from Okeechobee County plan
include advice such as, "Special emphasis
should be placed on survival techniques
relating to combat. Many Floridians already
understand how to prepare food and water
for several weeks without electricity. The
population of Okeechobee County is older
and less physically able to defend them-
selves from an attacking Horde. Hollywood
has generally ruined people's perception of
how to protect yourself from zombies, and
a great effort will have to be made to undo
many people's false notions of survival
methods against the Horde. Chainsaws look
great in the movies, but will not be reason-
able self-defense weapons during the Gray
Plague."
Mr. Faulkner, said the 75-page Zombie
Apocalypse plan is the product of many
weekends of effort on his own time, con-
sidering the special challenges that local
government would have if faced with a pan-
demic along with a social uprising. In the
face of a rapidly-spreading, fatal disease and
public panic, could local government still
hold the society together?
A disclaimer to the web page states:
"This is an exercise in creative planning,
combining several necessary response con-
cepts (i.e. response to a pandemic virus and
a civil defense related social uprising)."
He said he put the plan on the web page
but it was hidden so that only those who
knew where to look would see it. The page
has been on the web site for at least a year,
he continued, and Wednesday was the first
time a member of the public reported see-
ing it.
"It started as a weekend project on
emergency management planning," he ex-
plained.


In the past they conducted similar prac-
tice drills using hurricane scenarios. This
time, they wanted to consider the effects of
a pandemic and the massive social uprising
that could result during a pandemic.
The zombie idea came from a seminar at
the 2009 International Association of Emer-
gency Managers Conference in Orlando. He
said similar exercises have used space alien
invasions and Godzilla attacks.
Considering these scenarios helps man-
agers come up with creative ideas and
consider what would happen if their nor-
mal emergency plans would not work in a
given situation. For example, during a zom-
bie attack, how would you get emergency
meals to those trapped in their homes? "You
couldn't just send out the Red Cross to de-
liver food," he continued.
Okeechobee County was not alone in
planning for a zombie attack. Connecticut
State University created a webcast titled
"Zombie Attack: Applying Emergency Man-
agement to Attacks by the Undead."
The University of Ottawa Mathematics
Department published "When Zombies
Attack!: Mathematical Modeling of an Out-
break of Zombie Infection." The abstract
from this model states: "Zombies are a
popular figure in pop culture/entertainment
and they are usually portrayed as being
brought about through an outbreak or epi-
demic. Consequently, we model a zombie
attack, using biological assumptions based
on popular zombie movies. We introduce a
basic model for zombie infection, determine
equilibria and their stability, and illustrate
the outcome with numerical solutions. We
then refine the model to introduce a latent
period of zombification, whereby humans
are infected, but not infectious, before be-
coming undead. We then modify the model
to include the effects of possible quarantine
or a cure. Finally, we examine the impact of
regular, impulsive reductions in the num-
ber of zombies and derive conditions under
which eradication can occur. We show that
only quick, aggressive attacks can stave off
the doomsday scenario: the collapse of so-
ciety as zombies overtake us all."
In October 2009, the University of Florida
emergency preparedness web site included
a link to "Zombie Attack -Disaster Prepared-
ness Simulation Exercise #5." The report,
which investigated what would happen if
an outbreak of "zombieism or zombie be-
havior spectrum disorder," might affect the
college campus, was taken off the web site
when administration officials deemed it in-
appropriate. The documents, however, can
still be found on many other web sites.
According to the UF study, characteristics
of a zombie outbreak that might precede of-


ficial notification might include:
a. Disappearance of isolated citizens, ini-
tially in relatively remote areas;
b. Increasing numbers of gruesome un-
explained deaths and disappearances, espe-
cially at night;
c. Identification of difficult to kill, flesh-
eating perpetrators;
d. Recognition that the numbers of per-
petrators is rapidly increasing and that those
previously identified as victims have reap-
peared as perpetrators;
e. Increasing isolation of survivors;
f. Breakdown of peace-keeping and
medical services;
g. Documentation of lots of strange
moaning.
The UF plan included recommenda-
tions for the increased ability for UF to rely
on the E-Learning System to continue the
core mission during a zombie outbreak and
that staffers who drive compact cars be is-
sued laptop computers and allowed to work
from home, since commuting to and from
the campus could be dangerous..
It also includes a helpful form for those
who find it necessary to "dispatch" (kill)
an infected co-worker. Suspect symptoms
of Zombie Behavior Spectrum Disorder in-
clude: moaning, references to wanting to
eat brains, "recently dead but moving again,
"and "killed and ate another employee."
As it goes through the paperwork pro-
cess, the supervisor portion of the form
has indications for sending housekeeping
to cleanup, sending the employee addi-
tional ammunition and notifying Human
Resources to stop salary payments for the
dispatched employee and any victims.
Due to the increased traffic on the
Okeechobee EOC web site, Mr. Faulkner
added a note to the Zombie Apocalypse
page Thursday morning: "Some questions
have come up about this document, which
I'd like to answer. This document was cre-
ated on personal time and equipment as an
exercise in creative planning. This is not a
part of our CEMP in any way. The reason
behind using non-traditional scenarios for
planning purposes is to allow the planners
to be creative yet realistic with their re-
sponses. When planning for the same type
of event in the same location year after year,
the decision making process becomes very
familiar. Because planners are already famil-
iar with the answers or responses to ques-
tions that the scenario brings forth, it is likely
that the planner will respond without think-
ing critically. Changing the disaster scenario
allows the planner to re-engage this creative
thought process, and address the 'what-ifs'
of the situation. The hope is to generate
ideas and concepts that will be able to be re-

Okeechobee News


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A detective with the Okeechobee City
Police Department (OCPD) has released
a statement that 'bleached' bills are being
passed to local businesses.
According to OCPD Detective John Zei-
gler, a black man and a black woman passed
four $100 bills that are suspected of being
counterfeit. He said the bills were passed at
two Okeechobee businesses on June 15.
The detective said the man is thought
to be in his early 20s, is tall and very skin-
ny. When last seen, he was wearing a ball
cap and sunglasses. The woman is 5-foot-4
to 5-foot-6 with a heavy build and medium
length black hair with red highlights in the
front. When last seen, she was wearing a
gray sweater or shirt.
According to the detective, the bills all have
the same serial number-HDD59776815A-
and have a USA $5 security strip running
through each bill. This, he continued, indi-
oa sltkheat 11s$5bills have been altered to

beTdheedbogljs bills also have a diffe ent em
image of Benjamin Franklin that appears on
the counterfeit bills.
Detective Zeigler also warns that counter-
feit pens will not indicate that the bills are
bogus because the paper is legitimate-it's
the printing that's been changed. A closer
inspection is needed to determine if the bill
is real.
Bleaching bills then changing their de-
nomination is nothing new.
Bleaching is a process by which coun-
terfeiters take a valid U.S. note, normally
a $5 bill, and remove the printed ink. This
process creates a blank note of genuine cur-
rency paper that still has many of the coun-
terfeit deterrents.


Then an image of a higher denomination,
usually from a $100 bill, is transferred onto
the bleached paper.
Color computer printers are the most
common devices used, but the more tradi-
tional offset printing method will also work.
c he I eate inge pocets creates a vr e
of a genuine note, but has a counterfeit im-
age
Counterfeiting and bleached notes from
counterfeiting operations based in Colom-
bia, Nigeria, Italy and North Korea have pro-
duced large quantities of bogus bills. These
bills were printed on genuine U.S. currency
paper that had been bleached
Also, Venezuelan and Iraqi currencies
have been bleached to produce counterfeit
U.S. $100 bills.
Even though bleached counterfeit mon-
ey looks like valid currency to the untrained
eye, there are discernible differences.
So, how can you detect a counterfeit
bilP
*FEEL THE TEXTURE OF THE BILL.
Genuine currency has slightly raised ink

ath app rdo hc eap vi bilpr cessinte ds
not sold commercially.
*COMPARE THE BILL with another of
the same denomination and series.
*LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE PRINT-
ING. Printing techniques are used on real
U.S. bills that cannot be replicated by regu-
lar offset and digital printing. Look for blurry
areas in the fine details, such as around the
borders. Real bills have clear, unbroken
borders and on the Federal Reserve and
Treasury seals, the sawtooth points should
be sharp and well defined. Also, look at the
portraits. On fake bills the portraits may ap-
pear dull, blurred and flat. On real bills, the
portraits are sharp and contain very fine de-
tailing.


*LOOK FOR COLOR STRANDS. All
U.S. bills have tiny red and blue fibers em-
bedded in the paper--this process can't be
replicated. On fake bills, the colors are print-
ed on and are not part of the paper itself.
*LOOK AT THE WATERMARK. The
watermark portrait should match the print-
ed one. The newer $5 bill has a '5' water-
mark instead of Lincoln, while $1 bills have
no watermarks.
*EXAMINE THE SERIAL NUMBERS.
On fake bills, the numbers may not be even-
ly spaced or perfectly aligned in a row. If you
receive more than one suspicious bill, see if
the serial numbers are the same on all the
bills. If they are, they're counterfeit.
*LOOK FOR SECURITY FEATURES IN
ALL DENOMINATIONS BUT THE $1 AND
$2 BILLS. These features include an em-
bedded vertical (not printed) security thread
that will say USA, followed by the denomi-
nation of the bill which is spelled out on $5 '
$10 and $20 bills but in numerals on $50 and
$100 bills; a watermark bearing the image of
the person whose portrait is on the bill that
is also embedded in the paper to the right of
the portrait and can be seen from both sides
of the bill; color-shifting ink-black to green
on older bills and copper to green on newer
bills-on all bills $10 and up; and, fine print
around the portrait and security threads-
on counterfeits microprinting will be either
non-existent or blurry, while on valid bills
the fine print is crisp and clear.


*USE A BLACK LIGHT. If real, the
bills will glow: $5 blue; $10 orange; $20 -
green; $50 -yellow; and, $100 red.
*RUN YOUR FINGERS OVER THE
BILL. You should feel distinctive ridges in
the fabric that printers can't reproduce.
If you receive a counterfeit bill, the Secret
Service suggests you:
Do not return it to the passer.
Delay the passer if possible.
Observe the passer's description and
the license plate numbers of any vehicles
used.
SContact local law enforcement as well
as a U.S. Secret Service field office. These
numbers are on the inside of your telephone
directory.
*Write your initials and date in the white
border areas of the suspected bill.
*Limit the handling of the bill and place
it in a protective covering, such as an enve-
lope.
*Only give the note to properly identified
police officer or Secret Service agent.
For more information, visit the following
web sites: www.secretservice.gov; or, www.
wikihow.com.
If you have any questions about the au-
thenticity of a bill, contact local law enforce-
ment. Detective Zeigler can be reached at

tact the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office

inent department. It will be able to with-
stand natural disasters, such as hurricanes,
and allow the county's public safety depart-
Inents to continue to operate. Emergency
Management director Mike Faulkner said
the county already has money in the bank
to fund the project and that it was necessary
to go ahead with the new center in order to
take advantage of a $1.5 million grant. He
said once the project is completed and the
county has received its state and federal
Inoney, $2,346,000 will be put back into the
county's operational budget.
But the explanation fell short of appeas-
ing the crowd, who continued to voice their
frustration at the county spending money
for such things as the renovation of the old
courthouse and the Agri-Civic Center when
Inany of then may soon be out of work.
"As an administrator with two assistants,
you should be able to corne up with sorne-
thing. We need to do what we need to do to
get through these hard times," said Deputy
Hazellief, who added that he left the busi-
ness world to join the sheriff's office.
Ozzie Fleming addressed Mr. Bonner
and, without equivocation, let her feelings
be known. "I can't say anything bad about
our sheriff's department, and I'rn here to
uhpr etbh nshDrf, ash asaidsaMs. leniengr
the sheriff's office is called, they respond. "If
you make those (personnel) cuts, it will af-
feet the safety of our corniunity," she said.
She talked about hearing bullets cut
through the air one night as a man was shot
and killed less than 20 yards from her horne.
And when she called the sheriff's office, they
responded.
Mr. Culpepper asked that county taxpay-
ers be allowed to voice their opinions before
the county spends millions on such big tick-
et iterns as the EOC building, the Agri-Civic
Center and the old courthouse.
Marie Oliver then stood up at the back of
the room and challenged the county admin-
istrator. "I'rn an advocate for the sheriff's
office. What about y'all's budget? You have
nwoass ants dr ed n' ttyot ecu la ef

br rinnr Jd dp hf ad itnistrators Rob-
"We have made significant cuts," replied
Mr. Bonner, of moves made by the county to
save money. "The cuts made by the sheriff
pale in regard to the cuts made by the board
of county corniissioners." He went on to
say that he has received very few ideas on
how to make up the $4 million budget short-
fall that don't include personnel cuts.
Mr. Bonner added that ad valorern rev-
enues are down $2 million.
There was also a brief discussion about
the Municipality Services Taxing Unit
(MSTil) which could be a possible funding
source for the sheriff's office.
According to OCSO records, the sheriff's
office received a total of $12,569,375 from
ad valorern taxes in 2008/09. In 2009/10, that
figure was $13,923,920.
County corniissioners will hold a special
meeting Tuesday, June 29, to discuss the uti-
lization of the MSTil. That meeting will get
under way at 10:30 a.In. in the auditorium
at the Okeechobee County Health Depart-
inent, 1728 N.W. Ninth Ave.
"Right now, I think y'all are satisfied with
what we're doing," Sheriff May told the
standing room only crowd. "But my ques-
tion is: at what point do we let money en-
danger human lives? I will never cornpro-
Inise the safety of my people."
And again, the building was filled with
raucous applause and cheers.

total bill on an ambulance call is $777 but
on average, his department will only receive'
around $500
"We're collecting about 70 percent of our
calls," he said. "About 50 percent of our calls
are Medicaid "
County Administrator Lyndon Bonner,
who presided over the meeting, added that
the county is currently subsidizing those
people who aren't contributing. "But, if we
get the call, we have to answer it," he said.
Most people in the audience, however,
were more interested in discussing the
county's mutual aid understanding with sur-
rounding counties. Local land owner Bryant
Culpepper asked about the OCF/R answer-
ing fire and ambulance calls to Buckhead
Ridge in Glades County and J&S Fish Canp
in Martin County. Both are just across the
Okeechobee County line.
Russ Borgstrurn, who recently retired
from the OCF/R after 26 years, pointed out
that when these surrounding counties are
asked to help Okeechobee they won't re-
hpiond 'Martinu ountyecane et o o&Sfads e
tors and the hospital in Okeechobee and
Martin County doesn't want to transport
then to Okeechobee," he explained to the
crowd. "A 9-1-1 call from J&S goes to Mar-
tin County, and then they relay that call to
Okeechobee County."
In regard to Buckhead Ridge, Chief
Hopkins said Okeechobee has a contract
with Glades County for fire and ambulance
service. He said Glades pays Okeechobee
County $20,000 per year, per that pact.
Okeechobee County also bills the insurance
companies for its response. The chief said
his department responded to Martin County
14 times last year and Glades County over
100 times. And while many nernbers of the
audience let their unhappiness be known re-
gri'\d O etch ree Count ss lsig nion
unhaphpires escl~aated a th point of anger
The sheriff has already turned in his
proposed 2010/11 spending plan to the
Okeechobee County Board of County Con-
inissioners. That $17,059,651 budget is 1.88
percent less than last year's. The OCSO bud-
get for 2009/10 was $17,385,301.
In his opening remarks to the crowd
largely made up of OCSO personnel, Sher-
iff May said he has slashed his budget three
years in a row for a total reduction of 7.33
percent. When the sheriff stood to speak, he
received a boisterous round of applause.
"I have cut all I can cut without cutting
those people on the road or in the jail," he
said. "For sorne of my people, this will be
the third year they didn't get a pay raise. To
cut their salaries, I will fight it. But, before I
lay off one person, I will consider that."
Many people voiced their opposition to
the building of the new Emergency Opera-
tions Center (EOC) when the county is fac-
ing a budget deficit of more than $4 million.
"Whny are we spending money on this
building when you're talking about laying
off people?" OCSO Deputy Michael Hazellief
asked of Mr. Bonner.
"I'd make the sarne decision today," Mr.
Bonner answered. "We have to have a place
where we can coordinate."
The building will house 12 dispatcher
areas, as well as the emergency manage-

Tomorrow will be a big day with recog-
nition of a building and a person, who have
both played a significant part in the history of
Okeechobee County. After an extensive reno-
vation process, the 1926 courthouse will be
rededicated and unveiled to the public. Imme-
diately following the rededication, the court-
room will be renamed in honor of Retired Cir-
cuit Judge William Hendry.
Judge Hendry, who is noted as a local histo-
rian, will be the featured speaker at the rededi-
cation. Supervisor of Elections Gwen Chandler
and Clerk of the Courts Sharon Robertson will
also speak.
One of the most visible features of the res-
toration is the fact that the black metal security
gate has been removed from the front of the
building. The front entrance is now secured
by a roll up door that is out of sight when the
building is open.
The ends of the open hallways are now
closed off with glass walls and doors, allow-
ing for the halls to be air conditioned while
preserving the original look. The breezeway

and the first meeting of what is now the South

commemorating the day's rededication.
The upstairs courtroom will be used as the
commission chambers and can also be used
as a courtroom, if desired.
Several judges will take part in the ceremo-
ny. Sonny Williamson and his wife Betty, who
is president of the Okeechobee Historical So-
ciety, will be speaking and a plaque honoring
Judge Hendry will be unveiled.
After the ceremonies, the public will be able
to tour the building until noon and Okeecho-
bee Main Street will serve refreshments.


40,241 and a budget of $91,79 million. That
means that the county spends $2,280 for each
citizen. However the ratio of population to
budget in adjacent Glades County is even
higher. Glades County has 10,960 people and

government than Indian River County. Indian

$2,250 per person. That county has a popula-

Highlands County also spends less per
person than Okeechobee. Highlands has a

2008/09 the sheriff returned $1.2 million to

said was not taken into consideration.
"When you sit down and get the figures
right, we are close to these other counties."

said sorne of the counties had higher Inillage
rates than Okeechobee.
The sheriff said that sorne of the counties
on the chart have several towns with police
departments. Okeechobee County has only
one police department.
Mr. Bonner predicted that the Inillage rate
could go to 8.7 Inils with a full EMS assess-
Inent. Taxpayers are currently paying half
the recornrended EMS assessment. The ad-
Ininistrator suggested using the sarne appor-
tionrnent method that was used last year to
balance the budget whereby the county and
each constitutional officer would have to cut
a certain percentage from their budgets.

Ave., was arrested Wednesday, June
23, on a felony charge of unlawful
sex with a certain minor. He was
booked into the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Jail under a bond of $200,000.


Jackson has been having sexual
relations with the girl, who is now
17. The report states that the teen
has continually run away from
her horne during the last two
years and each time she would
go to Jackson's borne.
On May 25 a DNA test was
done to determine the father of
the teen's baby. The test indicated
a 99.99 percent probability that
Jackson was the baby's father,


stated Deputy Hurst's report.
The deputy's report goes on to state that
the teen is currently being held in a juvenile
facility in Clearwater.


According to a report by Deputy Cody
Hurst of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO), it's unclear just how long

There will be a temporary road closing
at the intersection of S.W Third Terrace
and S.W 28th Street, Wednesday, June 30.
On Thursday, July 1, there will be a sec-

Mr. Bonner said that public safety con-
prises about 49 percent of the budget. Turn-
ing specifically to fire and EMS services,
Mr. Bonner projected a chart on the wall
comparing Okeechobee County with other
counties. The chart showed such things as
population, area of square miles and the
amount of money spent on fire and EMS.
He then produced another chart showing
similar figures for law enforcement.
Sheriff May responded that that particular
chart was not shown at the town hall meet-
ing. He said the previous night's presenta-
tion stopped with the fire and EMS figures.
"I don't think we are using the correct
population," the sheriff said.
Mr. Bonner used a figure around 40,000.
The sheriff said that with migrant workers
and winter visitors, the population sorne-
times reaches 50,000.
The sheriff said his budget contains 100
percent of his expenses and that was not
the case with other counties. He said sone
counties pay for such things as workrnen's
compensation, cars, gasoline and utilities
for their sheriff's offices. The sheriff also
said that Mr. Bonner's figures do not take
into consideration the unspent money he
returns to the county each year. In fiscal year

The YMCA Okeechobee surnrer camp is
in full swing! The cornrunity of Okeecho-
bee came together over the past six months
and contributed toward the Okeechobee
project which raised over $40,000.
The first phase of the project was to fund
and conduct a YMCA feasibility study for the
corniunity of Okeechobee. The cost of the
study was $18,000 and has been completed.
Results will be discussed by the Steering
Corniittee and released to the public about
future plans over the next few months.
The remainder of the funds raised went
toward the 2010 YMCA Okeechobee "Wild
Earth" surnrer camp to provide scholar-
ships for families in need. The camp is being
held at the Grace Brethren Church/Okeecho-
bee Christian Academy. There are currently
22 children enrolled.
The camp has space available and schol-
arship money is awarded based on needs.
The camp has provided 75 percent scholar-
ship money to multiple families in Okeecho-
bee. The scholarship provides a 10.5 hour

The camp is a structured camp with daily
activities and weekly field trips at no addi-
tional charge. All staff at the YMCA canp
was hired directly from Okeechobee.
The YMCA of the Treasure Coast currently
serves 258 children in the four county areaS
(Martin, St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian
River.) The YMCA has provided over $74,000
to adt sdrolarships for the four county
camps~~, ti umr
"Campers are having a great first week,
says John Lass, YMCA President/CEO. One
camper stated "I love the YMCA carnp be-
cause you never get bored!"
"We are excited to be able to provide
assistance to Okeechobee residents," says
Brandon Tucker, Board Member. "It's very
rewarding to see the efforts of our volun-
teers and businesses put into action," says


Teresa Chandler, board nernber.

project or the surnrer camp please call Te-
resa Chandler at 863-801-4996.

Stearrnan, great nephew of Loyd Stear-
man, designer and manufacturer of the

Mr. Stearrnan celebrated Fathers' Day by
taking his first flight in one of his great un-
cle's aircraft. He went up with Jack Reisel
who flies passengers in a restored Stear-
man at the Okeechobee County Airport.
The particular Stearrnan owned by Mr. Re-
isel, who has over 18,000 hours of flying in
vaniouh aircraft, is 659ryear od.btnthe
last Mr. Stearrnan said.
H-e was amazed by the beauty of the
lake as seen from the open cockpit.
The Stearrnan, which has dual controls
in the front and rear cockpits was used as a
trainer by the arrny air corps and the navy.
The navy version was painted bright yellow


and student pilots called it "Yellow Peril."
After World War II the aircraft was used as

Inan is built like a tank with a simple rug-
ged design. However, it was not built for
economy, guzzling 12 to 14 gallons of fuel
an hour. The majority of air crews in World
War II trained on the aircraft. It has been
referred to as a washing machine because
it washed out so many cadets..

and really had to think faster on their feet.

of a proposed class of individuals or entities or a class of individuals or entities certified
by a court. EACH individual or entity must file a separate claim with the Receiver.
TO THE DEPOSITORS OF THE FAILED INSTITUTION
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which insures your deposits in its corporate
capacity (the "FDIC"), arranged for the transfer of all deposits including the uninsured
amounts at the Failed Institution to another insured depository institution, TD Bank,
National Association, 2035 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808 (the "New
Institution"). This arrangement should minimize any inconvenience from the closing of the
Failed Institution. You may leave your deposits in the New Institution, but you must
take action to claim ownership of your deposits.
Federal law, 12 U.S.C. Section 1822(e), requires you to claim ownership of ("claim")
your deposits at the New Institution by taking any of the following actions within eighteen
(18) months from the Closing Date. If you have more than one account, your action in
claiming your deposit in one account will automatically claim your deposits in all of your

Please be advised that Official Items issued by the Failed Institution, e.g., cashier's checks,
dividend checks, interest checks, expense checks, and money orders are all considered
to be deposits and must be claimed within 18 months from the Closing Date.
If you do not claim ownership of your deposits at the New Institution within 18 months from
the Closing Date, federal law requires the New Institution to return your deposits to the
FDIC, which may be required to deliver them as unclaimed property to the State indicated
in your address on the Failed Institution's records. 12 U.S.C. Section 1822(e). If your
address is outside of the United States, the FDIC may be required to deliver the deposits
to the State in which the Failed Institution had its main office. If the State accepts custody
of your deposits, you will have ten (10) years from the date of delivery to claim your deposits
from the State. After 10 years, you will be permanently barred from claiming your deposits.
If the State does not take custody of your deposits after the 18-month period, you may
claim your deposits from the FDIC until the receivership of the Failed Institution is terminated.
A receivership may be terminated at any time. Once the receivership terminates, you
will not be able to claim your deposits.

Rodeo camp


gives kids

summer fun
By Bobbi Poole
Special to the Okeechobee News
It was another week of rodeo camp
sponsored by Gethsemane Ranch. Kids
started to arrive early Tuesday morning
and stayed until Saturday morning. They
ate many, many meals, went swimming,
gathered for prayer times and enjoyed
lots of fun.
Normally, around 20 children show
up to learn the skills of rodeo. This year,
approximate twice that many came.
Whether it be bull riding, bull fighting,
run the barrels or poles, or calf roping,
all the events are offered at no charge to
the families. All meals are completely do-
nated and prepared by volunteers. Winn-
Dixie donated $40 in produce to be car-
ried out to the ranch. There's nothing like
cold watermelon on a very hot June day.
Many thanks extended to Winn-Dixie for
their generous gift.
Rodeo camp begins really early for
thho et rido e arde t ugt .l t olsonof
all they are taught about how much the
Lord loves them. That rodeo life does not
have to be drinking and drugging. It can
be the life of living for the Lord.
Each day, times are set aside to min-
ister to the children who come from all
walks of life helping them to become
stronger Christians.
Need to contact the ranch? Call 1-772-
597-0380, to inquire about the July
camp.
