Coquina Water Control District in good shape financially


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Coquina Water Control District Board of
Supervisors looked at a draft of their pro-
posed budget at their Wednesday, Aug. 11
meeting. They are in better shape financially
than the county. Revenues are $50,000 great-


er than expected because of prior years' tax-
es that were collected this year. The board
expected to save money on mowing with
a new contract that would allow them to
mow four times a year for less than what
they had paid for three mowings a year.
Since there are sufficient reserves, Supervi-
sor Ken Childs favored putting unused funds


in the operating budget for next year.
"If things stay on track we will finish our
five year plan in four years," stated Chair-
man Melvin Byars.
Turning to another matter, Mr. Byars
stated that he had discovered that someone
had built fences on Coquina owned land in
the southwestern part of Viking. He stated
the fence started from an adjoining property.
Mr. Byars said that the property owner has
been contacted to see if he knew anything
about the fence. There was some specula-
tion that the land might have been fenced to
run cattle, a practice Coquina does not allow
on their land. However, Mr. Byars said he did
not see any cattle on the property.


Board attorney Tony Young offered the
opinion that whoever put up the fence
should bear the expense of taking it down.
Mr. Byars said he was looking at three or
four places in Viking where Coquina might
buy lots to have fill dirt for road projects. He
said some desirable land had to be crossed
off the list because it was wetland.
After necessary business was conducted
the supervisors inspected some dredging
work being done and looked at the property
in question where the fence had been built.

Senate claims bill filed on behalf of FSB victims


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
State legislators will hear a claims bill in
their 2011 session that is aimed at compen-
sating those who suffered physical and sexu-
al abuse at the Florida School for Boys (FSB)
in both Marianna and Okeechobee.
That bill, Senate Bill-44 (SB-44), was in-
troduced Aug. 2 by Senator Mike Fasano
(R-New Port Richey). While the bill does
not state a dollar amount to be awarded, it
does state that money will be taken from the
state's general revenue fund then given to
the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for
disbursement to FSB victims.
A similar claims bill, SB-48, was first intro-
duced by Senator Arthenia Joyner, a Tampa
Democrat, on July 31, 2009.
"The new sponsorship is just a strategic
decision by our lobbyists," said St. Peters-
burg attorney Gregory Hoag. "In this bill we
did include more detailed information about
the abuse."
Mr. Hoag is a member of the legal team
representing several hundred men who
have come forward to tell about the abuse
they suffered at the schools in the 1940s,
'50s and '60s.
According to SB-44, boys as young as 10
were sent to the schools and not only beaten
with leather straps but also sexually abused
by male school officials.
In Marianna, boys were reportedly taken


to a dank and foul-smelling concrete block
building known as The White House. The
boys were then made to lay on an iron bed,
grasp the iron railing at the head then bite
into a pillow covered with blood, vomit and
other bodily fluids from the hundreds of
boys who had preceded them.
They were then beaten with the straps
until the men's lust for blood had been satis-
fied and the boys' clothing was embedded
into their now-lacerated buttocks and legs.
The boys were told not to yell or scream
or the beatings would continue. If the boy
did scream, or would not lay still, other boys
were brought in to hold down the victim.
Many times the men would make bets on
who would be the first to draw blood.
On one occasion a boy was tied be-
tween two trees and repeatedly kicked in
the groin.
In some instances, boys were literally
beaten to death.
These boys, stated SB-44, were punished
for such things as eating an extra pancake at
breakfast, eating blueberries while running
an errand or smiling at the wrong time.
Sometimes boys were awakened in the
middle of the night and taken to an under-
ground room known as "the rape room"
where they were sexually assaulted by male
school personnel, supervisors and cottage
fathers.
In Okeechobee, white boys were taken to

a room dubbed "the library" and black boys
were taken to the "adjustment room." Sen.
Fasano's bill states that these boys were then
beaten with leather straps that had quarters
or dimes embedded in the leather for extra
weight.
Wooden probing rods were also used to
punish and sodomize boys in the Okeecho-
bee school, added the bill.
A class action lawsuit filed on behalf of
the FSB victims was dismissed Feb. 23 by
Circuit Court Judge James Shelfer in Tal-
lahassee. The suit not only named several
state agencies as defendants, but a one-
armed Marianna man who was accused of
administering beatings at that school.
The suit against Troy Tidwell, who is
now in his 80s and still lives in Marianna,
was dismissed because the statute of limita-


tions had expired. Judge Shelfer dismissed
the suit against the state agencies because
of the sovereign immunity doctrine, which
means the state cannot be sued in its own
court without its permission.
As for SB-44, Mr. Hoag said there cur-
rently is no time frame on when it will be
heard.
Before action can be taken on the bill a
Special Master's hearing will be held and
his recommendation will then be sent to the
Legislature. At that point, legislators can take
up and hear the bill. The bill will have to be
voted on by both legislative chambers.
"This is still a foreign arena for us and
that's why we have lobbyists working for
us," explained Mr. Hoag.
The 2011 legislative session is scheduled
to get under way March 8.

new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

County taxes
Most agricultural businesses are not
very profitable. The best solution would be
to stop growing government, cut back gov-
ernmental growth and reign in governmen-
tal spending. Where does it stop? How much
money does the government need? When
times get tough a business reevaluates its
business and cuts where possible and tries
to become as profitable as possible, but the
government just keeps going back and tak-
ing more money from the people. Right now
we are at a point where you cannot take any
more money from the people, since the
economy is crashing from people having
all of their money taken from them. People
have no more money to spend to support
the economy. We need to stop raising taxes
on anyone. Additionally why is it OK to re-
peatedly tax people over and over again on
the same property, your land. It was taxed
when you purchased, then every year you
own it thereafter. This is not acceptable. You
theoretically own it, but in reality you are
sort of renting it from the government. This
is not a good situation.
What seems unfair to me is that I pay
more taxes on less than 1/2 acre with a small
building on it than they pay on 500 acres.
I do not mind that agricultural land is
taxed less per acre than commercial or resi-
dential land. We need to do everything we
can to keep land in agriculture or else we will
find ourselves depending on foreign imports
for the food we eat. However, such classifi-
cations should only be allowed for land that
is zoned agricultural and being used for an
agriculture. Once the zoning is changed to
commercial or residential, it should be as-
sessed and taxed at the commercial or resi-
dential rate. This would stop the abuse of
the system. It is not right that they can just
put a fence around a piece of commercial
property, put a few cows on it and have the
taxes cut down to almost nothing. If they
want the ag tax breaks, they should have to


put the land into agricultural zoning, with no
guarantee it could ever be changed back to
commercial.

Economy
Let's get the government out of busi-
ness. Let the market take care of itself. That
way we won't have all of the unemployed
people worried about where their next meal
is coming from. Our government is out of
control and destroying the economy and
causing dislocations. So get rid of the hand-
outs, business will start to flourish when we
don't have the government stealing money
from one person and handing it to another
person.

Clothing donations
OK parents, it's time to clean out the
closets and sort out the clothes the kids have
outgrown as
you prepare
for the new
school year.
It's amazing
how much
kids can
grow over
the sum-
mer and last
year's school
clothes are
probably too
small or too
short. If you
don't have
younger chil-
dren to pass down the clothes to, consider
donating them. Grace Brethren Church has
a school clothing drive under way. The used
but still in good condition clothing goes to
children in this community who need cloth-
ing. They even give you a receipt so you can
claim a tax deduction for the donation. You
can take clothing to the building with the
blue door, behind the church on Parrott Av-
enue on Wednesdays between 10 a.m. and
noon. Or you can call and they have volun-
teers who will pick up donations. Call 863-
697-8539. This is a way that you can help
others and at the same time get rid of some-
thing that your kids have outgrown anyway.

Budget hearings
What's the safest place to be in
Okeechobee? The county budget hearings

Support your local sheriff
I own a small construction company here
in Okeechobee and like most companies
the recession has been very difficult for us.
I have had to make some very tough deci-
sions in order to survive this storm and with
God's grace, I have managed to do so up to
this point. In the past three years, I have gone
from as many as 26 employees to as few as
three including myself. I was forced to lay off
my secretary two years ago and all of my em-
ployees have had to take salary cuts in order
to stay employed. I have moved my office into
my house to save money and both my key
employees and I have gone without a salary
when there just wasn't enough to go around.
These are just a few of the many sacrifices we
as a company have had to make in order to
survive this difficult time. "We did what we
had to do." Now, I say this not to draw sympa-
thy or to toot our own horn but to say to our
county government, this is how it works in the
real world and you could take a lesson from
my experiences and many others out there.
"Don't spend more than you make" is the
most basic principle of economics, yet no one
in our county, state, or federal government
seem to understand this at all. I wish I could
just raise my prices every time I have a cash
flow problem, but I can't, and it is simply not
ethical for our government to do so either. I
implore our local leaders to make the same
tough decisions that we in the real world are
having to make on a daily basis and find the
cuts and make them.
The Constitutional officers of this county
have done a fair job of cutting their budgets
but in my opinion Mr. Bonner, you have a long
way to go. You are far too top heavy, and rath-
er than making the necessary cuts in your de-
partment (which are crystal clear to us in the
real world) you and your staff choose to target
our elected officers, and their departments,
mainly our sheriff. Now as a long-time resi-
dent of Okeechobee, I feel we are blessed to
have such a fine sheriff and I feel he has done
what he has had to do with his budget to save
money without sacrificing public safety. Aside
from the budget cuts, he doesn't have the typ-
ical government mentality, "If I don't spend it,
I won't get it next year." If he doesn't spend it
he gives it back. There are no easy decisions
in economic times such as these for any of us,
but the government is not ENTITLED to raise
our taxes because they can't manage money
or because they refuse to make the obvious
and necessary cuts to maintain their budgets.
We the voters need to stop this spend-more-
than-you-make mentality which has run un-
checked in our government for far too long

Now that I'm older,
I can relate
Years ago my dad wrote this poem. I didn't
think too much of it, but as I am getting older,
I can relate to what he wrote. I really don't re-
member when my dad wrote this poem, but
I hope you enjoy it and listen to the words.
Here is my dad's poem.

Memories
Yes, I may walk a little slower and old they
may call me.
But I look a little longer,
at each dawn than that breaks for me.
I hear a little better all the sounds a day
can hold.
I love a whole lot stronger, all the worldly
births I see unfold.
I see a little clearer what the world holds
out for me.
I feel a whole lot deeper for others misery.
I dream a lot, most of the days long have
passed.
I acknowledge precious time that ticks
away so fast.
I hold a great deal tighter loving friends
embraces, and oh how I cherish laughing
children with life's smughes on their faces.
Yes, I may walk a little slower and old they
may call me.
But do you know I see, I hear, and I love
much better than that young boy I used to

Breastfeeding gives your baby the best
start in life possible with health benefits that
last a lifetime. But the magic of breastfeed-
ing goes beyond the hundreds of special
ingredients in the milk itself. Most mothers
agree that the reason they breastfeed is to
experience a special closeness with their
baby and to know their baby is warm, se-
cure and loved. Simple baby steps can help
you and your baby get off to a great start.
Hold your baby skin-to-skin for at least
the first hour after birth. Your baby will use
his instincts to find his way to the breast all
by himself.
Room in with your baby so you can learn
your baby's feeding signals and feed when-
ever he shows signs he's hungry.
Avoid supplements, pacifiers and bottles
unless vour doctor advises vo i to.


Students with the hottest new cell
phones on their back-to-school shopping
lists have an easy way to get rid of their old
ones. Verizon Wireless encourages stu-
dents and their parents to donate their no-
longer-used cell phones and accessories to
HopeLine, the company's cell phone re-
cycling and refurbishing program, to ben-
efit victims of domestic violence.
HopeLine collects no-longer-used
wireless phones and accessories in a
condition from any wire-
less service provider. The
phones are then refurbished
or recycled in an environ-
mentally sound way. Refur-
bished phones -complete
with 3,000 minutes of wire-
less service are provided to
local domestic violence or-
ganizations or local govern-
ment and law enforcement ,
agencies for use with their
domestic violence clients.
Over the past year, Flo-
ridians donated more than
35,000 phones to HopeLine which then
provided refurbished phones, cash grants
and other support to agencies such as the
Family Justice Center in Tampa, The Spring
of Tampa Bay, Safespace of Miami, Women
In Distress in Fort Lauderdale and Peaceful
Paths in Gainesville.
Donating a no-longer-used wireless
phone to HopeLine is an easy way for
students to help victims of domestic vio-


Your local Healthy Start Coalition pro-
vides the services of a lactation consultant
to the community for free. Linda Wier, BSN,
RN, IBCLC works with the local WIC office
as well. She has been an International Board
Certified Lactation Consultant since 1985.
Her previous experiences include positions
as a hospital lactation consultant in Palm
Beach County and in Nashville, Tenn. She is
a member of the Florida Lactation Consul-
tant Association. Linda will go into the home
when clients cannot come to her. Linda has
helped clients re-lactate after months of no
lactation.
Hospitals often give away formula when
mom and baby go home after delivery. This
does not mean the doctor wants you to use
it. This is part of the formula company's
marketing strategy to encourage mothers
to start using that brand of formula. If you
are given these marketing bags or samples,
remember that giving baby any amount of
formula decreases the amount of milk you
may make for your baby.
There is a new initiative across the nation
which promotes breastfeeding within local
birthing facilities on another level. Mothers
may sign a document which states her desire
to exclusively breastfeed her infant; therefore


lence and support local domestic violence
awareness organizations. Students, gradu-
ates and family members can donate their
wireless phones and accessories at any
Verizon Wireless Communications Store
in Florida. For students who can't make
it to a store, phones and accessories can
also be sent by mail with the postage-paid
label. Students, faculty members and par-
ents planning activities and events for their
schools, colleges or universities should
also consider organizing a
HopeLine phone drive.
Since the October 2001
launch of the HopeLine cell
phone recycling program, Ve-
rizon Wireless has collected
more than 7 million phones,
distributed more than 90,000
phones with free wireless
service to victims of domestic
violence, and awarded cash
grants of more than $7.9 mil-
lion to organizations working
to prevent domestic violence.
HopeLine has properly dis-
posed of nearly 1.6 million no-longer-used
wireless phones in an environmentally
sound way and kept more than 200 tons of
electronic waste and batteries out of land-
fills.

infants who are in a nursery for short peri-
ods of time may not be fed formula by pedi-
atric nurses under any circumstances. These
infants must be brought to their mother for
feeding time, if medically possible.
For many years it has been known that
a mother's own milk, regardless of spe-
cies, provides a wide range of health, plus
nutritional and psychological benefits for
her infant. Different species provide dif-
ferent types of milk to support the proper
growth and development for their infant.
Cow's milk is often used as a compliment
to the diet of children and adults to deliver
calcium and other nutrients into our existing
diet. Though cow's milk or soy milk is often
the protein used in artificial baby milk, the
intake of as little as one ounce by an infant
can negatively affect the ph balance of their
immature intestine up to 4-6 weeks and may
cause adverse allergic reactions. A calf has
four stomachs to break down the hard fats
and proteins of its mother's milk. Human
milk is designed for the growth, develop-
ment and intelligence of a human baby. It
is in fact, unique. No artificially produced in-
fant food can provide this same benefit.
Breast milk may significantly decrease the
incidence of many chronic diseases. Mul-
tiple studies through the years show that a
breastfeeding infant has a lower incidence of
asthma, allergies, acute respiratory illnesses,
certain childhood cancers, diabetes, obesity,
gastrointestinal disease, sudden infant death
syndrome and ear infections. Mothers who

breastfeed also have many health benefits
such as faster recovery from childbirth, less
post partum depression, weight loss, less
breast and ovarian cancer and less osteopo-
rosis. Mother's milk is free, but artificial baby
milk can be expensive and requires the need
to venture out and purchase the product.
The environmental impact of producing
artificial baby milk is also an important fac-
tor to consider when determining whether
or not to breastfeed. Artificial baby milk
involves multiple levels of manufacturing.
Many toxins can naturally occur before and
during the manufacturing process. Plastics,
paper, paints, inks and metals are used in
the development of the containers of these
products. Concerns of products used to pro-
duce infant feeding bottles are ongoing and
the chance of delivering bacteria and patho-
gens in an improperly clean infant feeding
bottle can increase the likelihood of multiple
and reoccurring illnesses. The resulting con-
tainers from artificial feeding in our landfills
also impact our environment. The overall
cost, whether environmental or physical,
impacts society. A mother breastfeeding her
infant can significantly decrease this cost.
A previous study indicated a savings of
3.6 billion dollars a year in emergency room
visits alone for the treatment of ear infection,
respiratory infection and diarrhea disease
that could be saved if an infant was breast-
fed. According to the Center for Disease Con-
trol, three out of four women in the United
States are now trying breastfeeding.

Stella A. Repper, 90
PAHOKEE -Stella A. Repper, 90, a resident
of Pahokee and the lake area since 1950, passed
away peacefully Wednesday, August 4, 2010, at

Pa., to William Francis and Mary Agnes Nagle.
It was there on May 14, 1940, that she married
John L. Repper.
A child of the Great Depression, a wife and

four of her own children and helped raise a
grandson. Her children always knew she would
be there waiting for them when they came
home from school. She was beloved by those
around her and looked upon her neighbors as
extended family.
She was preceded in death by John Repper,
her loving husband of 67 years; a beloved son,
Joseph "Joe" Repper; and siblings, Anastasia
Benton, Genevieve McConnell, Clair Nagle, Vin-
cent Nagle and Earl Nagle.
She is survived by her children, Vincent (Patri-
cia) Repper, Bernadette (Randy) Wilkinson, and
Patrick (Rebekah) Repper; grandchildren, Tere-
sa Antonio, Terry Cash, Kirk Repper, John Gra-
dy, Joseph Repper, Chris Wilkinson, and Mandy
Wilkinson; eight great-grandchildren; one great-
great-grandchild; and her brother, William Na-

tian Burial will begin at 10 a.m. All will be held
at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 1200 East Main
Street, Pahokee. Interment will follow at Port

Her family would like to extend a special
thanks to Hospice of Okeechobee and to their
mother's care-takers, Melissa Martinez, Lisa Lute
and Debbie Crouch whose care and devotion
made her final year a good one.

He said a CFO of a local business does not
live here because his wife said there was no-
where to shop.
Commissioner Noel Chandler said when
he was city commissioner that a city grant
writer said if the city did not show some type
of participation money the grant provider
would think the city was not interested.
The board approved one half the cost
of grant writing services (approximately
$5,750) to apply for a planning grant from
the Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment for this project. This grant would
determine transportation and infrastructure
needs of the project. Mr. Gordon has agreed
to pay the other half.
"This is baby step number one in a long
process," stated Mr. Cartland.
Commissioner Joey Hoover noted that
even if this project fell through, a transporta-
tion study would be useful for later growth.
"There may be phases to the project but
the grant is to look at the entire project,"
stated Mr. Cartland.
"This is huge undertaking for us. There
are still a lot of unknowns we have to work
out," Mr. Bonner said.
In other business, county attorney John
Cassels and attorney John Cook updated the
board on a long running code violation case
concerning Michael and Cynthia Rucker.
They were cited by a code magistrate for al-
leged commercial activities in an agriculture
zoning district and constructing a structure
and erecting lighting without a proper per-
mit. The Ruckers appealed the magistrates
decision. The appellate court upheld the
magistrate's decision.
However, the violation still persists.
Code enforcement office Beth Albert stat-
ed that a fine of $100 a day began May 21,
2008 and has accrued to $81,300.

Mr. Cassels noted that since the property

School board discusses $79.3 million budget


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County School Board
held their first public hearing on the pro-
posed $79.3 million budget on Thursday and
received no public comment on the spend-
ing plan.
The millage was set at 8.121, a slight in-
crease of .0356 over last year. The millage
included 5.623 for the required local effort,
0.748 mills for discretionary local effort, and
.250 for the super majority millage. There is
also 1.5 mills set aside for capitol improve-
ments.
The super majority millage can be in-
stituted for two years. A voter referendum
takes place during the general election in
November. This millage will fund critical op-
eration needs. This is not a new tax and if


approved by voters, the tax can remain for
another two years.
The property tax on a residence worth
$100,000 will increase by $5.20 this year,
Superintendent Dr. Patricia Cooper said.
Spending in operations is down $1.2 million
or about 1.5 percent.
The local property taxes collected will de-
cline $1.95 million due to declines in prop-
erty values. There will be just under $10.6
million collected this year.
The budget itself includes $56.03 million
in expenditures, an increase of $956,729 this
year, or about 1.1 percent. There will be a
huge decrease in capital improvements,
more than 20 percent. The district would
spend $8.78 million for capital projects, $4.3
million for food service, and $9.9 for federal
programs.
State funding increased by $1.96 million

a competition similar to American Idol.

fessional name of Dj Troy is president of
Slip N Slide DJS. He has also been inter-

to $34.84 million this year. The district will
spend $201,402 in state money to help fund
the school resource officer program. State
funds used for transportation and instruc-
tional materials declined by $10,572.
The district proposed a $500,000 fund
balance in their operating budget. There
are no salary increases programmed in the
spending plan this year.
The proposed millage and budget were
approved (4-0) without discussion by the
board. Board member India Riedel was ab-
sent.
Superintendent Dr. Patricia Cooper said
she received a letter to update the district on
the FCAT audit being conducted by the State



I 7


Department of Education.
Okeechobee has the most students of
any one district in the state that is currently
under review. The state has agreed to do a
student by student review of any student
who declined by two or more levels.
Dr. Cooper said it might take four to six
weeks to get the FCAT results and school
grades for Okeechobee this year.
"I'd rather wait and have the results be
right," she added.
Dr. Cooper said there were 12 vacant in-
structional positions in the school system as
of Thursday.
Peace Lutheran Church will hold a new
teacher luncheon on Monday, Aug. 16.

County commission candidates square off in forum


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The candidates for Okeechobee County
Commission met in a forum Tuesday night,
Aug. 10 at Okeechobee High School spon-
sored by the local chapter of the Fraternal
Order of Police. J.D. Mixon was the modera-
tor. Each candidate was given two minutes
for introduction, two minutes to answer
each question and two minutes in closing.
Democrat Terry Burroughs is seeking
the District 4 seat held by Republican Joey
Hoover. He is a 1968 graduate of Okeecho-
bee High School whose mother ran Sybil's
Florist and whose father worked for the Fly-
ing G Dairy. He has served on a number of
citizen boards.
"We need to diversify our economy, he
stated. "The amount of time I volunteer is
astronomical," he asserted and listed his
accomplishments with Okeechobee Main
Street and other civic organizations.
Jared Figley, Republican, is seeking the
District 2 seat held by Noel Chandler. He is
a sixth generation Okeechobee native who
currently manages his family's ranch. Mr. Fi-
gley promised "thrift and hard work," if he
were elected.
Gene Woods, Democrat, would also
like to win the District 2 seat. He previously
served three terms as commissioner. "I feel
as though I could be a better commissioner
than Noel (Chandler)," he stated.
Commissioner Chandler, who also served
12 years on the Okeechobee City Council,
would like to continue to serve as "a full
time commissioner."
Bryant Culpepper, Republican, would
also like to hold the District 2 seat. He is in
the air conditioning business. He has lived
in Okeechobee County for eight years. Prior
to that he lived in Palm Beach County. He
said he did not want Okeechobee County
to become like Palm Beach County. "I am
running for the position because I want to
do a better job" he asserted. Mr. Culpepper
promised that if county employees had to
take a salary cut he would voluntarily cut his
salary twice the percentage the employees
were cut.
Commissioner Hoover, a Republican,
was raised in Okeechobee by school teach-
er parents. "I've enjoyed contributing to my
community," he said. He felt his most lasting
contribution to the community is the time

he has spent working with young people
through OCRA and church recreation pro-
grams.
All of the candidates thought the budget
was a major area of concern. Mr. Hoover
said it is a matter of balancing needs and
wants with available revenue.
Mr. Woods suggested that county staff
might be top heavy.
Mr. Culpepper suggested streamlining
county departments.
Mr. Burroughs would like to review staff-
ing levels in county government.
They had different ideas abut dealing
with the constitutional officers.
Mr. Woods would like to meet with the
constitutional officers to determine their
needs.
Mr. Chandler advocated meeting with the
constitutionals all year long, not just at bud-
get time.
Mr. Culpepper, Mr. Figley and Commis-
sioner Hoover were of the opinion that the
constitutionals were answerable to the peo-
ple and they should not try to microman-
age.
Mr. Burroughs said the commissioners
should try to understand the challenges of
the constitutionals without trying to micro-
manage.
Commissioner Chandler was not in favor

of using capital dollars for operating expens-
es.
On the other hand Mr. Culpepper favored
that practice when making "crisis manage-
ment decisions" such as if you are on the
verge of laying off employees.
Commissioner Hoover pointed to county
policy which prohibited the practice.
Mr. Woods and Commissioner Chandler
both wanted strict code enforcement.
Mr. Hoover was in favor of broadening


the tax base. He said the EMS assessment is
a way to avoid increasing village.
Mr. Woods was in favor of bringing in
more business. He and Commissioner
Chandler were in favor of using sale tax to
reduce special assessments.
Mr. Culpepper favored taking a harder
look at agriculture exemptions.
Mr. Woods said the agri-civic center is a
drain on the county.
All the candidates were in favor of at least
considering a sales tax.
"I think it is the fairest tax," Mr. Burroughs
said.
"I would certainly support a sales tax."
said Mr. Woods.

Warriors win ESPN Global World Series Championship


Long and winding road led
Okeechobee 12 & under
baseball team to victory

The process of putting together an
Okeechobee Warriors 12 and under travel
baseball team began in January with a
group of boys from the Brighton Indian res-
ervation, Lake Placid and various Okeecho-
bee communities.
Little did anyone know at the time what a
wild ride would follow.
The roster varied throughout the year, but
a core group of kids was there all along. They
included Mason Joyner (infielder, pitcher
and catcher), Jarred Morgan (infielder and
pitcher), Robby Hays (catcher and outfield-
er) and Alex Lopez (outfielder and infielder)
from Okeechobee; Tyler Farmer (infielder
and pitcher), Angel Ojeda (infielder), Bran-
ston Smith (outfielder) and Daniel Simons
(infielder and pitcher) from Lake Placid; and
Josh Madrigal (outfielder) from Brighton.
The team competed in an average of
two tournaments per month and had sev-
eral scrimmages with other travel teams be-
tween tournaments. By the end of January,
the Double A Warriors began playing open
tournaments in which they faced Triple A
and Majors teams that had played together
for several years.
Eventually, Okeechobee began playing
tournaments against teams in its own class
and started to gel as a team and became
one of the better 12U Double A squads in
Florida. The Warriors placed third in two
tournaments and ended up winning a pair
of other tourneys to qualify for the USSSA
12U AA World Series in Pace, Fla., as well


as the Global World Series in ESPN's Wide
World of Sports in Orlando.
"Once we qualified for the two World Se-
ries, we realized that in order to give these
boys the opportunity to showcase their tal-
ents, we would have to do a lot of fundrais-
ing," said head coach Marcel Lopez. "For the
three weeks prior to leaving, the boys held
car washes and bake sales, sold conces-
sions at scrimmages, and asked for support
in front of grocery stores in Okeechobee.
"Our success at both World Series was
made possible by the support and contribu-
tions from the Brighton, Okeechobee and
Lake Placid communities. Without their
support, we would not have been able to
take these boys on a two-week adventure of
playing baseball against the top 12U travel
teams in the southeastern United States."
Only nine Warriors players were able to
make the trip, so Chase Quesinberry was
added to the roster. The team played eight
games in four days, including three on the
final day.
Okeechobee played against teams from
Louisiana, Georgia, Arkansas, North Caro-
lina, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama at the
Pace World Series, and was knocked out of
the tournament by the eventual champion,
the St. Mary Yankees, and wound up finish-
ing sixth.
Next was the Global World Series at Kis-
simmee, where the Warriors were allowed to
add two players as write-ins (Layton Thomas
and Elijah Finney). By the time elimination
games started, the team was fully rested and
chomping at the bit to play against Triple A
and Majors teams. During the elimination
round, Okeechobee defeated one Double A,
one Triple A and two Majors teams to cap-
ture the Global World Series.


Special to the Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Warriors team poses for a photo after winning the semi final
game at the Global World Series. First row, left to right are: Angel Ojeda 4,
Alex Lopez 2, Daniel Simons 33, Mason Joyner 25, Chase Quesinberry 5, Elijah
Finney 1. Second row left to right: Jarred Morgan 11, Tyler Farmer 7, Layton
Thomas 9, Josh Madrigal 10, Branston Smith 67. Coaches left to right are: Mar-
cel Lopez, Dave Simons (head coach), Greg Joyner. Not pictured is coach Jon
Madrigal.


The Warriors ended up being ranked as
the No. 1 12U Double A team in Florida and
the No. 4 12U Double A team in the coun-
try. The coaching staff included head coach
Dave Simons and assistants Greg Joyner, Jon


Madrigal and Marcel Lopez.
For the season, Farmer batted .449 with
10 home runs, Morgan hit .421 with 42 RBI,
Hays batted .396 with seven homers and 57
stolen bases, and Alex Lopez hit .392.
