TWO arrested, officers
confiscate 28 plants

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A man and a woman were arrested
Monday, Sept. 20, after detectives raided
a suspected marijuana grow house on the
Viking properties and reportedly seized 130
pot plants with an estimated street value of
$473,200.
Arrested were: Basilio Luis Abreu-Sosa,
47, N.W. 294th St., Okeechobee; and Maite
Padron Pino, 40, N.W. 25th Ave., Miami.
Abreu-Sosa was arrested on felony charg-
es of cultivation of marijuana, trafficking in


marijuana and possession of marijuana with
intent to sell. He was also
charged with the misde-
meanor of possession of
drug paraphernalia. Pino
was charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana, posses-
sion of marijuana with in-
tent to sell and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
Basilio Luis Although they had been
Abreu-Sosa booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail, they had
yet to have their first appearance hearing so
no bond had been set as of Tuesday after-
noon.
An arrest affidavit by a detective with the
Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force stated that


28 plants were found growing in one room
of the mobile home and
another 30 were found
growing in a second
room. During a search of
a barn on the property,
the affidavit stated that
another 72 plants were
found.
The plants were field
Mait Parontested and indicated a
Pinon positive result for the
presence of marijuana,
stated the report.
According to the detective's report, all the
plants had active root systems.
The plants had a total weight of 118
pounds.

September 22, 2010


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The unnamed storm that was the second
worst natural disaster in American history
was remembered Thursday during an hour
long memorial service at Port Mayaca Me-
morial Gardens
Dr. Willy Jay Thompson of the East Stuart
Historical Society has arranged the service
for the past three years. This year the City
Commission in Pahokee issued a procla-
mation that thanked Dr. Thompson and his
group for their efforts.
"We do our very best to try and maintain
the cemetery and do this type of memorial,"
City Manager Derrick Moore said, "We try to
make sure that those that have passed on
are remembered."
This year marked the 82nd anniversary
of the deadly storm that killed at least 1,600
people in the Glades area and around Lake
Okeechobee. More were killed in West Palm
Beach. The National Hurricane Center chal-
lenged the official death toll and now main-
tain that at least 2,500 people perished in the
storm.
The main culprit was heavy rains that
blew down man made dikes around Lake


Okeechobee. As the ceremony was being
held, just a few short miles away, workers
continued major improvement projects on
the Herbert Hoover dike.
Survivor Ethel Williams was three years
old when she and her family lived in a small
shack in Santee Quarters at Sand Cut. She
said it was God's will that she survived.
"It was God's permissive will that I sur-
vive. I wasn't the only one and his will must
be done. He is going to see us through. Not
many are left but we have children to carry
on the name of the Lord," she noted.
Williams, who has lived in Indiantown
since 1970, remembers little about the
storm, but knows she went to live with her
aunt Daisy Flemings in Okeechobee after the
storm. She remembers her father worked in
Okeechobee and had to hitchhike and walk
back to the Glades the day after the storm to
help his family.
"It was terrible. I don't remember too
much. They let me see the house we were
living in and it was down to the ground.
Some people asked God why this happened,
but he knows best and he's not to be ques-
tioned," she added.
william< a~ir noonic meert he mo~navrd


to meet the Holy Ghost at all times. She said
she hopes nothing like this ever happens
again, "I wouldn't wish that to happen again.
We know it might come back. You just have
to be ready when it comes.
The ceremony included a narration of the
storm and its aftermath by Mary Lovely of
the East Stuart Histonical Society. The theme
for this years observance was "Their eyes
were watching God." The theme was taken
ermba o ela wite tbth Zre Neale staonnd
included eye witness accounts of the ordeal
residents went through in the Glades.
Lovely explained that the observance
shows that the public gives respect to those
unknown departed souls that were placed in
a mass grave as a final resting place in Port
Mayaca. More than 1,600 are buried at the
cemetery.
"We wish these souls rest peacefully in
the bosom of Jesus," she added.
She read aloud passages of the book that
explained the victim's eyes were watching
God that Sunday afternoon. Furious winds,
torrential downpours and sheets of rain hov-
ered over Lake Okeechobee. Many migrant
workers and local residents on the northern
rim of the lake wept, prayed and fought to
save their lives in one of the deadliest disas-
ters in American history.
The storm packed winds of 160 miles per
hour and came ashore at the Jupiter Inlet. It
travelled swiftly across Palm Beach County
and Lake Okeechobee.


The lake flooded and the man made le-
vees broke and unleashed torrents of water
onto communities of impoverished citizens.
The storm wiped out hundreds of buildings,
crops and livestock.
The recovery of bodies lasted until No-
vember 1, 1928. Thousands of bodies were
found, some hung in trees, under homes
and barns, and in shrubbery, canals and
ditches. Bodies were found as far away as
the Everglades.
Other bodies were burned in make-shift
funeral ceremonies, and others were eaten
by alligators. Farmers throughout the Glades
have reported digging up the bones of storm
victims in fields around the Lake for many
years.
The poem, 'Somebody got drowned,' by
Fanny Moore was also spoken to the crowd.
One portion of the poem caught the fear
the victims must have felt that day, "Over in
Pahokee families rushed out the door, and
somebody's poor mother was never seen
no more. Out around Lake Okeechobee all
scattered on the ground, the last account of
the dead folks was 2100 found. South Bay,
Belle Glade, Pahokee, they tell me all went
down, and in the little town of Chosen, ev-
erybody got drowned."
Reverend Jerry Gore of the East Stuart
Pentacostal Church of God gave the blessing
as a wreath was laid on the marker of the
mass grave at Port Mayaca.


Willie Mae Maize of the East Stuart Historical Society laid a wreath at the 1928
hurricane monument in Port Mayaca.

likely, since the acts are the same, he will
receive the same sentence."
Mr. Albright explained that the 4th DCA


handed down the ruling because the acts
constituted a sexual battery charge. Al-
though there was one dissenting judge, the
others agreed that Tindall could not be con-

Tindall, now 20, was arrested in October
of 2006 by Detective Ted Van Deman of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
for sexually molesting two young girls, ages
5 and 6 at the time.
During Tindall's 2008 trial the older of the
two girls testified that Tindall pulled her into
his bedroom by her hair, placed her on his
bed, locked the bedroom door then molest-
ed her. It happened again the next day, she

Public Forum/Speak Out


4 Okeechobee News


Wednesday, September 22, 2010


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!

Old fashioned churcheS
*As I was reading the Okeechobee News
last Friday I found a most interesting article
in the Public Forum/Speak Out. It was about
Christians not happy with the loud music in
worship. As a preacher I thought I should
weigh in on this subject. Worship is the most
sublime activity in a Christian's life. People
should not be distracted from worshipping
their Lord in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
I would like to take this opportunity to invite
you to visit the Okeechobee Church of Christ
where you will be pleasantly surprised. We
follow the New Testament pattern of singing
and making melody in our hearts to the Lord
(Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). The only
instruments we use are our voices and our
hearts. May God's richest blessings be upon
our community of Okeechobee.

Sheriff's budget
*According to the most recent figures re-
leased, it appears that Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office has one of the lowest starting
salaries for deputies, even for a rural county.
And we don't have very many deputies, just
1.4 per 1,000 population, which is maybe
even less than that if you were using the real
population numbers, as there are probably
about 10,000 the census doesn't count. It
looks like a big part of the problem is the
huhe expa et o f t jieasuse th p ol
for trial. So what can be done to get the jail
expenses under control?
*To make the budget cuts the county
commission is asking for, the sheriff would
have to fire 26 employees. I am assuming
he would start with the support staff, but
it looks like there is no way around it and
some of the 26 would be deputies. I hope
fo tthe sake of the public that it does not go


till adults could arrive and take them off the
grounds. If the parents were not available or
able to be reached then local law enforce-
ment should have been called to take cus-
tody of the minors. Instead they were just
shoved out to the darkness of the evening to
fend for themselves and the safety and care
of these minors seems to be of no concern
of theirs. Is this what this town is about? Is
this how we care for our youth?
*If you were that concerned, then why
just drop them off to a business that does
not provide that kind of service? It's a movie
theater, not a baby sitting service. If you were
that concerned, then why not drop the girls
off at the door, park and go in after them? I
understand trying to give teenagers that bit of
space, but you yourself said they are only 13.
Still young to be without direct adult super-
vision. On a side note, aren't you upset with
your daughter and her friends for being so
rude that they were even asked to leave? I've
been going to this theater since it was first
built and I've never seen them throw anyone
out for talking during a movie. So they must
have been VERY disturbing to others around
them. Something to think about there.
*When did the movie theater become
a babysitter for your child and her friends?
Would you expect Walmart to watch them
for you for a couple of hours while you went
el hdo 't think the theater has an res on-
sibility for what happens to kids who are
kicked out for bad behavior. If the kids are
not mature enough to call you and let you
know there was a problem, then they should
not have been left there unsupervised in the
first place. Even if nothing had happened to
get them kicked out, how do you know the
girls would not have just left the theater on
their own and gone out to the parking lot
to see what kind of mischief they could get
into, or be picked up by an older boyfriend
you might not approve of? You would be
surprised how often kids who are dropped
off at the theater take off as soon as the par-
ents dnive away. So long as they get back to
the theater parking lot before you, you have
no idea where they went. What's a parent to
do? Drop the kids off, let them go in ... then
buy a ticket, wait for the theater to darken...
and sit near the back with the other parents
who are doing the same thing.


*Why would a parent assume theater
staff is responsible for these girls other than to
provide them with a movie? If the girls were
not responsible enough to act appropriately
then they should have never been left unsu-
pervised .. "kids will be kids" .. pshaw. Had
it been one of mine, I would have marched
them right back inside and had them apolo-
gize to management for their rude behavior.
Then I would have pecked my child's head
for not calling me immediately when the
incident occurred instead of waiting two
hours for me to come "find them standing
out front."

Recyc ing
*There's Christine Cristofek on TV talk-
ing about recy-
cling in Palm
Beach County.
She says that
if people mix
their glass
re cyclables
with paper,
the glass will
break and make the paper useless. But we
in Okeechobee are told to go ahead and mix
all our recyclables together because they
mix it all together on the trucks when they
pick it up. So how come it's OK to mix the
recycle stuff in Okeechobee, and it's not OK
to mix it in Palm Beach County? Editor's
note. Waste Management offers the follow-
ing response: "Waste Management invests
in state of the art single strearn recycling
technology at our facilities. Single strearn
recycling lets you cornringle all of your ac-
ceptable materials together in one bin. Sin-
gle strearn allows WM to operate its fleet
rnore efficiently, cuts down on the number
of specialized recycling collection vehicles
and is rnore convenient for customers.
"Okeechobee's recyclables are collected
one Motn syin a CWMtrrea -lada truck an
are reloaded into larger trucks with other
recyclables and delioveed to our state of the
art single strearnReuter Recycling Facility in
Pembroke Pines.
Christine Christofek represents the Solid
Waste Authority who currently still utilizes
dual strearn technology at their facility.
Whereby Solid Waste Authority customers
are still required to sort their paper rnate-
rials frorn plastics placing then in their re-
cycle bins.

OPINION


Jury scam
*Most of us take those summonses for
jury duty seriously, but enough people skip
out on their civic duty that a new and omi-
nous kind of fraud has surfaced. The caller
claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest
that you never received a summons for jury
duty, the scammer asks you for your Social
Security number and date of birth so he or
she can verify the information and cancel
the arrest warrant. Give out any of this in-
formation and bingo, your identity was just
stolen.

Cars broken intO
*I was so glad to see the deputies finally
caught some of the young hooligans who
were burglarizing parked cars in the Oak
Park Area. The parents of these children
should consider this a wake up call. Your
kids are on a bad path and if you don't do
something now, they will wind up in prison.
Theft is serious business. Take it seriously
and get these kids straightened out before
things get worse.
*The sheriff's office and city police have
made this point over and over--lock your
cars. People need to take precautions to pro-
tect their own property. Don't leave your car
unlocked. Don't leave valuables in your car.
Just because they caught one group of kids
who were stealing does not mean the prob-
lem is over.
*Regarding the thefts in Oak Park, par-
ents should pay more attention. If your child
suddenly has a new iPod or has money to
spend and you didn't give it to him, it is your
responsibility as a parent to find out what
is going on. If parents paid more attention,
fewer kids would land in trouble.

Theater
*I took my 13-year-old daughter and a
few of her friends to the movie theater on
a Friday evening for the 7 p.m. showing. I
know the movie ends near 9 p.m. and wait-
ed till they entered before leaving them to
the care of a local business. I arrived back
to find they were asked to leave for talking
and using a cell phone at the beginning of
the movie and told to leave now and do not
come back then just pushed them out to the
streets. I do not have an issue with them be-
ing asked to leave if they are being disruptive.
However, I do mind that three young girls of
the age of 13 and less were not supervised

irr's offices. However, since you raised this
question, the issue was researched further.
Using the rnost recent statistics available
frorn FDLE, we lind only 15.4 percent of the
population of Martin County lives in areas
served by the Stuart Police, Jupiter Island
Public Safety Department andSewall's Point
Police Department. According to the sarne


than aoveage level of pokie protection. Ac-
cording to the report, Okeechobee City has
3.6 officers per 1,000 residents. The Florida
aoveage for cities with police departments
is 2. 4 officers per 1,000 residents.

Local scholarships

(}HOSti0H84
Now that all the hype is over, I would
like to know how the $748,000 dollars of
the Okeechobee local scholarships that the
school principal so adeptly described was
divided up so that every student that was eli-
gible got a piece of the pie?
My grandson was a graduate of the class
of 2010. He finished 34th in his class. Not 91st
or even 132nd, but 34th! All this and he was
even taking three college classes while com-
pleting his Eagle Scout project.
If it wasn't for a Bright Futures scholarship
that he received due to his academics, he
would have been shot out of the picture. The
scholarship is from the state, not locals!
Politics is alive and well in Okeechobee
County.

About the budget
In the article from the Sunday, Sept. 19,
edition concerning the sheriff 's office bud-
get, there is a sentence that roughly reads,
'both St. Lucie and Martin Counties have cit-
ies with large police departments and most of
the counties'spopulations liv in thosst ct et

seems tt. Lbe completelyy false.t WhieathjtyCit~y

St. Lucie County's population, Martin County
has roughly 13.5 percent of its population
living within the City Limits of Stuart, Jupi-
ter Island, Ocean Breeze Park, and Sewalls
Point combined. That's every municipality in
Martin County. About 13.75% of Okeechobee
County's population lives within the City of
Onk ehobee using the figures provided in the
As a City employee, it is sad to see this type
of misleading information printed (and if my
figures are wrong I do sincerely apologize.)
Although we are certainly not a metropolis,
we perform our fair share of civic duties.
Sergeant J. Bernst
Okeechobee City Police Department
Editor's note: The statement in the article
was rneant to explain why sorne neighbor
ing counties have such a low ratio of depu-
ties to population. We regret that Martin
County was not a good example. The FDLE
statistics show that while Martin County
Sheriff 's Oflice only has 0.1 officers per
1,000 population,but when you combine
the sheriff 's office with all of the police de-
partrnents in Martin County, there are 2.3
officers per thousand population, which
seemed to indicate a large percentage of
the population of that county enjoy both

Vote No on 4
Amendment 4 equals higher taxes, fewer
jobs and lots of lawsuits. With this "Vote
on Everything" amendment, citizens, not
the representatives you elect, are forced to
decide hundreds of technical land-use plan-
hr I isu a h llb t three things: skip all of them, vote yes or vote
no on each one. Hardly a productive way
to operate the comprehensive planning for
Okeechobee County.
The taxpayer will have to pay this astro-
nomical cost of holding additional elections
to revise the local comprehensive plans, not
just major projects but even minor technical
details.
If you think this is no big deal, go and
review one of the comprehensive land use
packets that go to the council for a vote. Then
imagine the cost in dollars and trees if even
half the voters wanted a packet to review.
The state growth management laws estab-
lish the process to make sure comprehensive
plan amendments are scrutinized diligently
and follow a detailed procedure to assure de-
cisions made would be fair, legal and in the
best interest of the entire community.
If this amendment passes, we will have
a worse, not better, way. Each planning de-
cision will be a political campaign, smart
growth will be impossible.
Amendment 4 What will it do for us?
Costs will spiral out of control
Out of town lawyers will come in and
have a feast
Economic growth will come to a halt
Hundreds of jobs will be lost
Business will find it almost impossible to
move in
Existing business will find it very hard to
grow.
The problems are many and costly.
Forest Grose, Ft. Pierce


Teen Dance incident
Many parents and students who attend
the monthly teen dances are aware of the in-
cident that occurred at the Saturday, Sept. 18,
Teen Dance. This behavior and activity was
handled in the appropriate manner and will
not hhe oler tedsalt aavbfur hvdnttjhepat

'"v?"" her ahe FreksehmanbCampu and oth
first incident of criminal activity.
The monthly teen dance is currently being
held at the Okeechobee Freshman Campus
"on school property" and therefore falls un-
der the guidelines for school behavior during
school sponsored events. Any activity such as
this would be subject to student suspension/
epulsiahnafrom shdol.o Sttdhent Ir ea pet

were at a regular school function and these
rules are strictly enforced.
The Teen Dance Program was created
to provide a safe, secure, fun activity for
Okeechobee teens to enjoy. I will continue to
provide the utmost attention in keeping that
same atmosphere and environment for stu-
dents attending the monthly events.
For parents who bring teens to the dance,
you are aware of how much the dance is
enjoyed by those who attend. It is a place
where they can gather, enjoy music, food and
fun. They leave looking forward to the next
dance! This most recent occurrence in bad
behavior and poor judgment will not damage
what others have come to enjoy.
The dance is very well supervised with
Chief Denny Davis providing two uniformed
police officers who are present throughout
the dance. There are also volunteers from lo-
cal businesses and the DJ is a teacher at New
Endeavor. The average attendance has been
between 50-125 students, showing a definite

dance include music, dancing, pizza, soda,
chips and cookie, it is also set up to donate
some of the funds from each ticket sold back
to a local charity. The teens get to enjoy an
evening and they learn about giving back to
their community.
Parents of students attending or consider-
ing attending a teen dance function should
be advised of the rules and guidelines for any
future teen dance functions including:
1. The parents drop off students to a
dance volunteer. The parents MUST sign the
students in and students must leave with the
same person who dropped them off. (Unless
prior arrangements are made)
2. The students pay their $7 at the door
and are given a ticket to pick up their food
when ready.
3. Once students enter the building they
are not allowed outside until the parent ar-
nives.
4. There is approximately one volunteer to
every 10 students.
5. The DJ takes requests of their favorite
songs.
6. Games are played such as limbo, hula
hoop and the mummy game where students
can win a gift card donated by local vendors.
7. Bathrooms are monitored every ten
minutes by a volunteer walk through.
8. At the end of the dance, students remain
in the building until the parent arrives and are
called over the speaker to exit to the vehicle.
The volunteer verifies the original sign in
sheet to match drop off instructions.
The Teen Dance Program is supported

Six students at Okeechobee High School
have earned AP Scholar Awards in recogni-
tion of their exceptional achievement on AP
Exams.
The College Board's Advanced Place-
ment Program@ (AP@) provides motivated
and academically prepared students with
the opportunity to take rigorous college-
level courses while still in high school, and
to earn college credit, advanced placement'
or both for successful performance on the
AP Exams. About 18 percent of the nearly
1.7 million students worldwide who took AP
Exams performed at a sufficiently high level
to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The College Board recognizes several ley-


els of achievement based on students' per-
formance on AP Exams.
At Okeechobee High School two stu-
dents qualified for the AP Scholar with Hon-
or Award by earning an average grade of at
least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades
of 3 or higher on four or more of these ex-
ams. These students are Sarah Murrow and
Taylor Parker.
Six students qualified for the AP Scholar
Award by completing three or more AP
Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP
Scholars are Joey Barletto, John Alan Hodg-
es, Juan Lugo, Isabella Peniodo, Allison
Spencer and Kathleen Turner.
Of this year's award recipients at


Okeechobee High School, three are seniors
this year: Joey, Juan and Isabella. These stu-
dents have one more year in which to com-
plete college-level work and possibly earn a
higher-level AP Scholar Award.
Through more than 30 different college-
level courses and exams, AP provides mo-
tivated and academically prepared students
with the opportunity to earn college credit
or advanced placement and stand out in the
college admissions process. Each exam is
developed by a committee of college and
university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring
that AP exams are aligned with the same
high standards expected by college faculty
at some of the nation's leading liberal arts
and research institutions. More than 3,600
colleges and universities annually receive
Ae gdsd OeOr e9d0Sp rsen of o ura no
or placement for qualifying exam grades.
Research consistently shows that AP stu-
dents who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams
(based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being
the highest) typically experience greater aca-
demic success in college and higher gradu-
ation rates than students who do not partici-
pate in AP.
The College Board is a not-for-profit
membership organization whose mission is
to connect students to college success and
opportunity. Founded in 1900, the associa-
tion is composed of more than 5,600 schools,

An Okeechobee man apparently
drowned Sunday, Sept. 19, in an accident
on the Kissirnree River at the Platt's Bluff
recreation area.
According to a report by Deputy Ser-
geant Robert Colernan of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), Jessie
H. Boland, 40, N.W. 17th Ave., died after
jumping from a rope swing into the water.
Sgt. Colernan's report indicates that wit-
nesses told hirn Mr. Boland was swinging
on the rope over the water and fell head
first into shallow water. The water was
about 3 feet deep where he landed, wit-
nesses told the deputy.
The witnesses first thought Mr. Boland
was faking an accident and playing a joke


on his friends, but after a few seconds they
realized that something was wrong. They
then pulled hirn from the water.
OCSO Deputy Cari Arnold, who was off
duty, drove to the area with a friend when
she "... heard someone yelling that he
wasn't breathing." Deputy Arnold got out
of her car and began to administer cardio
pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Deputy Arnold, along with anoth-
er women, continued to do CPR until
Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue person-
nel arrived.
Mr. Boland was later pronounced dead
at a local hospital.
Sgt. Colernan's report indicated that
an autopsy will be done to determine the
cause of death.

to keep working hard towards preparing for

Okeechobee enjoyed a 28 point

A legitimate role for the

Since the letters went out to the parents,
Mr. Kenworthy's office has received a lot of
calls from concerned parents. He said he has
contacted the Social Security Administration
and that the Social Security Administration
will send the school board 500 identity theft
packets which will be mailed out the fami-

who thinks their personal information may
have been compromised.
Mr. Kenworthy said the report did not

Sheriff's Office, 12 vehicles in the Oak Park
area were burglarized over the weekend of
Sept. 4 and 5 and five more vehicles were
burglarized over the weekend of Sept. 11
and 12. All of the vehicles were unlocked at
the time of the crimes, according to the sher-
iff's office report.
neFtourn tunie Iav ben ar este scot
under investigation
OCSO Detective Lt. Brad Stark said the
investigation indicates the bag was probably
thrown away after it was searched for mon-
ey and other valuables. He said they believe
the paperwork was probably thrown away
with the bag. He said they are searching for
the school employee's bag as well as for
other purses and bags that were allegedly
discarded.
On Sept. 14, letters went out to the par-
ents of the students whose personnel infor-
mation was in the msni napr wo ystt-

ed: "We are contacting you because we have
learned that a document containing some of
your child's personal information was stolen
this past weekend. The document included
your child's last name, first name, Medicaid
number, Social Security number, local stu-
dent identification number, school name
and grade.


"While some of this data is commonly
referred to as "Directory Information," we
realize that the social security number is not.
Law enforcement has been notified and is
investigating the burglary.
"We felt it necessary to notify you of
these circumstances. If you have any ques-
tions regarding this incident, please contact
me at 863-462-5000, ext. 261.
Mr. Kenworthy said the staffer should have
been more careful with the documents. He
said while it was appropriate for her to have
the paperwork in her possession, it should
have been properly secured.
"School board employees take work
home all the time," he said.
He said the school board has conducted
staff training about the importance in secur-
ing students' personal information. He said
due to this incident, they will conduct addi-
tional training to make sure all staffers un-
derstand and follow security procedures.
The case involving this staffer is under in-
vestigation and it has not been determined
whether the employee will face disciplinary
action, Mr. Kenworthy explained.
He said it is his understanding that in this
case, the thieves were not looking for docu-
ments or personal information. They likely

By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
Personal information about approxi-
mately 450 Okeechobee County students
may have been compromised when a bag
was stolen from a school board employee's
car.
Okeechobee County Assistant Superin-
tendent for Administrative Services Ken Ken-
worthy explained the school board employ-
ee was working on a Medicaid audit report.
Because she works at more than one school
and was going from school to school to con-
duct the audit, she kept the 50 page docu-
ment with her, he explained. She placed the
paperwork in her Vera Bradley bag and had
apparently left the bag in her car which was
parked at her Oak Park residence on the
weekend of Sept. 11 and 12.
The vehicle was apparently broken into
over the weekend and the bag taken.
According to the Okeechobee County

Okeechobee News
Thursday's meeting of the Okeechobee
County Commission will be marked by sev-
eral items brought about by the negative
economic conditions. Commissioners will
look at fees charged by the county as well
as an amended pay system for county em-
ployees. The meeting will be at 9 a.m. in the
Okeechobee County Courthouse, 304 N.W
Second Ave.
The new budget calls for a 3 percent pay
reduction for all county employees. Com-
missioners are scheduled to act on a new
pay schedule incorporating this decrease.
They will also set the dates for the seven
furlough days the budget calls for. The dates
are either on Friday or Monday and most will
give employees a long weekend as many co-
incide with county holidays.


Turning to fees, commissioners will
consider increasing cemetery fees in order
to make the county's cemeteries self suffi-
cient. Under the proposal on the agenda, the
charge for a cemetery site would increase
from $650 to $800 and the perpetual care fee
would increase from $100 to $400.
Commissioners will consider lower-
ing fees at C. Scott Driver Park in order to
increase usage. Under a rate schedule pro-
posed by the tourist development council
(TDC), the charge per day for use of the
pavilion area would decrease from $150 to
$50. The current daily rate for the entire facil-
ity is $500. The TDC proposal calls for a daily
rate of either $400 or $425, depending on
the new pavilion rate, Since C. Scott Driver
ramp area is under utilized, it is hoped these
rate decreases will encourage fishing tour-
naments that are now using the Okee-Tantie


Campground and Marina to move to C. Scott
Driver Park.
Commissioners will discuss mainte-
nance of public rights of way not owned
by the county. There are street rights of way
throughout the county that are under county
jurisdiction but are not maintained by the
county. Among the options to be discussed
are abandonment, special assessments, per-
mitting private property owners to improve
rights of way, accepting substandard streets
for maintenance, doing repairs on a one-
time basis and allowing property owners
to pay the county to maintains streets upon
request.
In other action, the board is expected to:
consider renewing their agreement with the
Taylor Creek Bass Club for the annual Kid'S
Fishing Tournament at the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center.

The Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA) and government, cornrunity, public
health and law enforcement partners has
announced a nationwide prescription drug
"Take-Back" initiative that seeks to prevent
increased pill abuse and theft. DEA will col-
lect potentially dangerous expired, unused
and unwanted prescription drugs for de-
struction at sites nationwide on Saturday,
Sept. 25. The service is free and anonymous,
no questions asked.
Locally this effort will be handled by the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office and
Okeechobee Discount Drugs. The collection
site for the Okeechobee Cornrunity will
be "Okeechobee Discount Drugs, 203 SW
Park St., from 10 a.In. to 2 p.m. on Saturday
Sept. 25, 2010. Please bring your unused or
unwanted medications to the pharmacy for
disposal.
This initiative addresses a vital public
safety and public health issue. Many Arneri-
cans are not aware that medicines that lan-
guish in horne cabinets are highly suscepti-
ble to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of
prescription drug abuse in the United States
are increasing at alarming rates, as are the
number of accidental poisonings and over-
doses due to these drugs. Studies show that
a majority of abused prescription drugs are
obtained from farnily and friends, including

throwing then away -- both potential safety
and health hazards.
"With this National Prescription Drug
Take-Back campaign, we are aggressively
reaching out to individuals to encourage
then to rid their households of unused pre-
scription drugs that pose a safety hazard and
can contribute to prescription drug abuse "
said Acting Deputy Attorney General Gary G.
Grindler
"The Department of Justice is cornrit-
ted to doing everything we can to make our
cornrunities safer, and this initiative repre-
sents a new front in our efforts, he said.
"We are launching a first-ever National
Prescription Drug Take-Back campaign
that will provide a safe way for Americans
to dispose of their unwanted prescription
drugs," said Michele M. Leonhart, Acting


Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Ad-
Ininistration. "This effort symbolizes DEA's
corniitrnent to halting the disturbing rise in
addiction caused by their misuse and abuse.
Working together with our state and local
partners, the medical cornrunity, anti-drug
coalitions, and a concerned public, we will
eliminate a major source of abused prescrip-
tion drugs, and reduce the hazard they pose
to our families and cornrunities in a safe,
legal, and environmentally sound way."
"Prescription drug abuse is the nation's
fastest-growing drug problem, and take-back
events like this one are an indispensable tool
for reducing the threat that the diversion and
abuse of these drugs pose to public health,"
said Director of National Drug Control Policy
Gil Kerlikowske. "The Federal/state/and local
collaboration represented in this initiative is
key in our national efforts to reduce pharrna-
ceutical drug diversion and abuse."

f Or Veterans


During the month of September the
mental health community is highlighting the
ned for Natioa 1 d Global S icde Aware

ness and Prevention. In the U.S. an average
of 30,000 individuals commit suicide yearly.
In fact one person dies from suicide every
16 minutes. Veterans make up 20% of the

yearly deaths, at double the rates of other
populations with an average of 18 suicides
per day. This has many health and human
SerVice professionals alarmed.
It is estimated that there are nearly 2 mil-
lion Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to date,
most of whom have served multiple tours '
This translates into more and more veterans

who are returning with post traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD), depression and other men-
tal health issues. Left untreated, these el-
eVate the risk for suicide and if coupled with
substance abuse, the proverbial "time bomb
waiting to go off" theme comes into play.
Since January, staff at 211 have been
anSWefing On aVeragel96 suicidal calls per
mOnth from all populations. Last month a
Tecord 244 calls from suicidal individuals

were answered. Overall, 211 has noted a
54% increase in suicide calls comparing Jan-
uary thru August of 2009 and 2010. Howev-
ef, Very few veterans were reflected in these
numbers because many are unaware of the
211 helpline.
211's Executive Director Susan Buza
COmmented that "Returning veterans are
facing so many challenges. They really need
someone to talk to-and we're that confiden-
tial call. 21 1 is able to assist those individuals
as well as their families any time of day or


With increasingly tough economic times,
211 wants to remind veterans and civilians
alike: Before you harm yourself or someone
you love, pick up the phone and call 2-1-1.

Okeechobee News
The state has filed an additional felony
charge against a man who allegedly pointed
a gun at a sheriff's deputy during the execu-
tion of a search warrant last month.
Jose Carrillo, 26, S.W. 18th Terrace
Ok eechobee '
was arrested Fri'
day, Sept. 17, on
a charge of ag-
gravated assault
on a law enforce-
ment officer with a
deadly weapon. He
was booked into
tCe utOk echobrea
bond of $25,000.
Carrillo was
originally arrested Jose Carrillo
Aug. 26 when
members of the Special Response Team
(SRT) from the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) served a search warrant
on the Echo Estates home where Carrillo
was living.
OCSO Deputy Corporal Paul Ferrell and
other members of the SRT unit entered the
home and as Cpl. Ferrell walked through the
kitchen he came upon a closed door. Car-
rillo opened the door and reportedly pointed
a 9mm SCCY handgun at Cpl. Ferrell.
tdThet crp raldyelled ")gu 's as he i t ained
9mm assault rifle in Corrilla's direction. Cor-
rilla was not hit. Cpl. Ferrell was the only
deputy who fired his weapon.
Corrilla was placed in handcuffs then lat-
er arrested by detectives from the Okeecho-
bee Narcotics Task Force.
He was originally charged with posses-
sion of a firearm during the commission of
a felony, possession of marijuana with intent
to sell, child neglect and possession of drug
paraphernalia. His bond on those charges
was set at $55,000. He was later released on
bond.
Paperwork from the Office of the State
Attorney indicates that two of those charges
- o session oloa firearm ildun glet -chom-

been dropped.
Also in the home at the time was Car-
rillo's paramour, the woman who owns the
home, and the couple's 17-month old child.
Neither was injured.
Following the incident Cpl. Ferrell was
placed on paid administrative leave pending
an internal investigation. According to OCSO
Major Noel Stephen, Cpl. Ferrell went back
to work Sunday, Aug. 29.
Maj. Stephen said before Cpl. Ferrell was
put back to work he was counseled and met
with Sheriff Paul May, Maj. Stephen, SRT
commander Lieutenant Gary Bell and his
shift supervisor Sergeant Brian Hagan.
"We spoke with him and it was deter-


mined that his mind was clear," said Maj.
Stephen. "The chances of this happening in
someone's career are few and far between.
But, now, it's happened twice to him."
Cpl. Ferrell was also involved in an Aug.
12, 2005, shooting incident when he and
other deputies responded to a domestic
situation. When they arrived they were
confronted by Dennis Keith Rock, who was
stepping off the porch of the home with a


rifle in his hands. The barrel of the gun was
pointing upwards.
As Rock continued to move toward the
deputies he began to lower the .22 caliber
semi-automatic rifle. When Rock ignored
orders from Cpl. Ferrell to drop the gun and
continued walking toward him, the corporal
fired his .40-caliber Glock handgun twice.
One bullet entered Rock's left leg and the
other struck the man in the right hip.


Rock was arrested and later convicted on
two counts of aggravated assault on a law
enforcement officer with a deadly weapon
and one count of felony battery. He was sen-
tenced to serve a total of 23 years in prison,
which will be followed by eight years of pro-
bation.
Cpl. Ferrell has been with the OCSO since
June of 1993.

Community Theatre presents 'Hello Dolly'
Season tickets to all three shows scheduled for the Okeechobee Community Theatre's
32nd year are now available. This year's line-up includes the all-time classic Broadway
musical, "Hello, Dolly," along with a "film-noir"-style comic crime adventure, "The Man
With Bogart's Face," and a heart-warming comedy from the writers of past OCT hits,
"Dearly Beloved" and "Christmas Belles," entitled "Dixie Swim Club."
Patrons can see all three productions for a total of just $2!8, which is a savings of $8 off
the regular $12 per show price. Season subscribers also get to reserve the best seats in
the house several weeks before the single-show tickets go on sale to the general public.
A subscription form can be found on-line at http://okeecommunitytheatre.com, or
season tickets can be purchased by calling 863-763-1307.
"Hello, Dolly," opens in November for a four-performance run. Dolly Levi special-
izes in finding suitable matches for unmarried men and women. When she accepts a
wealthy but crotchety businessman as a client, she does everything possible to win him
for herself. The title song from the show became so popular that it actually kept the Beat-
les away from the number one position on the charts for several weeks in 1964.
The role of Dolly will be played by Lonnie Kirsch. The cast of 20 also includes such
audience favorites as Mike Zierden, Genna and Kevin Lute, Joyce Taylor, Michael White,
John and Laurie Garner, Cathy Womble, Joey Marcinek, Jane Kaufman, Louise Chan-
dler, Billy and Shawna McCullers, and Daniel Delagall.
