Boswell convicted of murder;


expected to get life sentence


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Brad Boswell will spend
the rest of his life in prison.
The fact that he still must be
sentenced is merely a formal-
ity.
Boswell, 29, was convicted
Wednesday, Oct. 27, of killing Brad
Angel Pulido by a 12-member Boswell
jury. With his conviction of
first-degree felony murder, he will automati-
cally receive a life sentence.
He was also found guilty of two counts of
robbery with a firearm/deadly weapon, bur-
glary of a dwelling with assault/battery, grand
theft, cruelty to animals and possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon.
Boswell will officially be sentenced in De-
cember.
He, along with Hugo Lopez-Martinez and
Daniel Solomon, are accused of going to Pu-


lido's home in DeBerry Gardens and shooting
the man to death in the front door of his CBS
home. Boswell and Lopez reportedly went into
the bedroom of Pulido's paramour of three
years Alexandria Paige Norman, 21, and took
a large jar of change. Before that, one of them
reportedly shot and killed Fatboy, a 90-pound
pit bull belonging to Pulido.
Boswell and Lopez stole a 2001 black Dodge
Durango from the home and fled Okeechobee,
stated court testimony. They were captured lat-
er that same day in a housing subdivision near
Lake Placid.
Solomon, who drove the other men to Pu-
lido's home, fled the scene in his gold Chevrolet
Cavalier shortly after hearing the first gunshot.
He has already been found guilty of first-degree
felony murder, two counts of robbery with a
firearm/deadly weapon and one count of bur-
glary of a dwelling with assault/battery. He was
sentenced to life in prison on each charge.

County sets


rates for


ballfields

Commissioner Hoover
offers to help OCRA
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
At their half day meeting on Thursday,
Oct. 28, Okeechobee County Commission-
ers acted on a wide range of topics from
setting charges for electricity on county ball
fields to appointing a volunteer board mem-
ber.
During the recent budget debate com-
missioners agreed to charge for the electric-
ity at the county ball fields. At the Thursday
meeting they adopted specific hourly elec-
tricity rates for different baseball and foot-
ball fields as well as setting rental rates for
the ball fields.
Since OCRA is a nonprofit organization,
they are exempt from the rental fees, but
they would have to pay for the electricity.
Lawrence Phipps of OCRA stated that
the electric fee would put a strain on their
budget. This was something they had not
anticipated when raising funds for their
football program. Mr. Phipps estimated it
would cost the organization an additional
$500 and he requested that his organization
be exempt from electricity charges.
Commissioner Joey Hoover suggested
that the commissioners transfer funds ear-
marked for board sponsored events at the
Okeechobee County Agri-Civic Center that
had been cancelled to the OCRA electric
bill.
Commissioner Ray Domer feared that
would start a precedent. "I wish we didn't
have to charge anything," he added.
Mr. Hoover volunteered to pay half if Mr.
Domer would pay the other half.
"My suggestion is that you pay the whole
amount," was Mr. Domer's reply.

Continued From Page 1

Mr. Hoover agreed to pay the entire
amount.
In a related item, commissioners took no
action on approving proposed new policies
and procedures for use of county recreation
facilities.
At the recommendation of facilities man-
ager TonyArd, commissioners voted to mod-
ify the contract with Scott's Quality Cleaning.
The frequency of cleaning of the judicial
center will be reduced and the savings in
that area will be used to pay for cleaning the
courthouse. All the cleaning contracts expire
at the end of this fiscal year. Mr. Ard said that
if things work out all right with the revised
cleaning contract for the judicial center and
courthouse, he would look at reducing the
frequency of cleaning for other buildings
when contracts are renewed next year.
In another contract matter, commission-
ers voted 3 to 1 to ratify the amendment to


BOSWELL

Lopez, who is facing the same charges
as Boswell except for the gun possession
charge, will stand trial next week. It is slated
to start Tuesday.
According to Assistant State Attorney Don
Richardson, Solomon, 32, was supposed to
be the getaway driver.
"If you're going to go out and commit a
home invasion robbery and felony murder,
you'd better get a good getaway driver. He
didn't," Mr. Richardson told the jury as he
pointed to Boswell during his closing argu-
ments Wednesday.
Throughout the fast-paced two-day trial,
the state laid out their theory to the jury that
the men went to Pulido's N.W Seventh St.
home with the intent of robbing him of his
drugs.
However, something went wrong and
Pulido was killed.
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) Deputy Fred Bradley testified that a
large amount of marijuana was found in the
home, as well as an unspecified amount of
cocaine.
District 19 Medical Examiner Dr. Roger
Mittleman testified Tuesday that Pulido bled
to death internally and died within seconds.
This, said the prosecutors, explained why
there was little blood at the scene.
It took Fatboy longer to die, however,
after he was shot in the head. Drops of his
blood were found in the living room and in
Norman's bedroom, where he eventually
died.
Defense Attorney Bernard Fernandez
spoke at length in his closing that the state's
case lacked critical evidence-mainly, they
couldn't prove that his client was even at
the home, much less that he shot and killed
Pulido.
"There's been no evidence presented
by the state putting Brad Boswell in the
residence of Angel Pulido," the West Palm
Beach attorney told the jury. "Let's not com-
pound this tragedy by accusing an innocent
man."
It was his theory that while at the front
door of the home Fatboy acted like he was


county administrator Lyndon Bonner's con-
tract that they approved at their last meet-
ing. The amendment modifies Mr. Bonner's
contract to expire Feb. 28 with no renewal
provision. The administrator was also given
six months severance pay. Mr. Hoover voted
against the motion after asking where the
money would come from for the severance
pay. Deputy county administrator Robbie
Chartier stated that the money could come
from either leaving that position vacant for
six months or taking money from reserves.
Commissioner Margaret Helton was not
present.
Turing to the Okeechobee County Agri-
Civic Center, commissioners applied for a
U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Busi-
ness Enterprise Grant to purchase and install
15, 24-foot, low speed, high volume fans.
The county has spent much time and
money in construction, attempted repair
and litigation concerning a failed injection
well drilled several years ago at the sports
complex by American Drilling Services. A
source well was drilled below the level of
potable water to bring warm water to the


going to attack so a shot was fired at the pit
bull. But, theorized Mr. Fernandez, the bullet
struck Pulido by mistake.
"Maybe it was a bad accident. Maybe Mr.
Pulido got in the way of the bullet," he of-
fered.
He went on to point out that even though
a ski mask and gun was recovered from the
Durango, neither Boswell's DNA nor his fin-
gerprints were found.
"Nothing here can be absolutely tied to
Mr. Boswell," said Mr. Fernandez as he end-
ed his closing argument.
The defense put no witnesses on the
stand during the trial.
During the rebuttal portion of the state's
closing, Assistant State Attorney Ashley
Albright explained some of the questions
posed by defense counsel. Even though
Norman testified that a black man came into
her room demanding money and drugs, she
could not identify him because the had a
bandana over his face, said Mr. Albright.
He also pointed out that when Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Deputy James Spires
saw the black Durango on S.R. 70 W a black
man was driving it. The deputy also testified
that he saw that same black man under the
carport of a home belonging to Fernando
Gomez. Mr. Gomez flagged down Deputy
Spires and told him that the man, later iden-
tified as Boswell, had tried to gain entrance
into his home.
And as far as who actually shot Pulido,
that didn't matter since the charge was fel-
ony murder and Boswell was committing at
least two felonies.
"We don't have to prove he pulled the
trigger," Mr. Albright told the jury. "He was
engaged in the burglary. He was engaged in
the robbery. And, Angel Pulido was killed."

surface to heat the swimming pool. This
water was supposed to be returned to the
same level in an injection well dug the same
depth. However, some time after construc-
tion, the injection well began to leak water
to the surface.
After several thick folders of highly techni-
cal testimony by expert witnesses had been
accumulated, American Drilling Services
was recently awarded a $150,000 judgement
from the county. However, the oral report
given to the commissioners by the hydroge-
ologist hired by the county to seal the well
seemed to throw the blame for the well's
failure on American Drilling Services.
Frank DeCarlo of American Drilling Ser-
vices requested to address the board on the
well situation. County Attorney John Cassels
advised that since there could be further liti-
gation the board could receive Mr. DeCarlo's
remarks but refrain from replying.
Mr. DeCarlo said he wanted to help non-
well drillers understand what happened.
The hydrogeologist's report stated that
110 feet of casing was pulled out of the
well that did not have the required grouting
around it. Mr. DeCarlo cited studies showing
that grout shrinks, cracks and does not bind
to well casings.
He said he drilled three monitor wells that
proved the water rising to the surface from
the injection well was surface water and did
not indicate a leak at the 447 foot level as the
county's experts stated.
"Based on all on all the findings, there


was an extremely small leak three feet from
the surface," Mr. DeCarlo stated. "I believe
this well got hit by a vehicle." He claimed
that was the cause of the leak.
Mr. DeCarlo claimed that when the coun-
ty's hydrogeologist sealed the well, water
rose in it to a depth of three feet below the
surface, He claimed that if there were a
deeper leak in the well, the water would not
have risen that high.
Mr. DeCarlo stated that he still had not
received the letter exonerating him he was
due according to terms of the settlement.
"If you would have come to me could
have saved the taxpayers a ton of money," he
claimed. He felt the commissioners should
have come to him when it was first discov-
ered the well was not functioning properly.
"My point is I spent $365,000 on attorneys
and professional opinions and you gave me
$150,000 back."
"I don't think you guys can take me back
to court," Mr. DeCarlo said as he invited
commissioners to meet with him.
In another water related item, the board
amended the county's comprehensive plan
to adopt a water supply facilities work plan.
"It's more or less a technical amendment,"
said Bill Royce, the county's planning offi-
cial. This report is required by state law. It
ensures there is adequate potable water for
future development and commits the county
to develop water conservation measures.

Scott makes campaign stop in Okeechobee


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Rick Scott made a campaign stop in Fla-
gler Park on Wednesday morning, Oct. 26.
Over one hundred people came to the park
to eat pancakes, listen to the New Ground
Trio sing and hear what Mr. Scott had to
say.
His campaign bus pulled up to the park
at 8:20 and Mr. Scott made the rounds shak-
ing hands with people in the park.
"I could not be more excited than I am,"
local Republican Party official Debbie Large
said in her opening remarks. "This is a big
day for Okeechobee."
"Rick Scott is a young man who knows
what it is to work hard," said State Represen-
tative Jennifer Carroll, Mr. Scott's candidate
for lieutenant governor, who accompanied
Mr. Scott on the campaign stop. She said he
would bring business to government.
Mr. Scott introduced his wife, two daugh-
ters, son-in-law and mother. He said this
was the first time they had all been together
on the campaign trail. He paid tribute to his
mother as the person who brought him to
faith in Jesus Christ.
Mr. Scott said he had a 7 point plan to
create 7,000 jobs. The first point was to quit
wasting money. Number two was to reduce
the size of government. The third point was
to end regulations that kill jobs. The fourth
point was to promote job growth.
"This is going to be the number 1 place
to do business," he promised. His fifth point
was to invest in universities to create jobs.
Probably his most popular point, number

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Rick Scott was quickly surrounded by
supporters when he stepped off his bus for a campaign speech in Flagler Park
on Wednesday morning, Oct. 27.


6, was to reduce property taxes. His last point
was to phase out business income tax. Mr.
Scott urged the people to vote. "Make sure
everybody you know votes," he stressed.
"I look forward to coming back here as
governor,' he stated in closing.
"What I'm going to do is get this state
back to work," he pledged to reporters after
his speech.
He said Amendment 4 is a "disaster. It
will kill jobs in the state."
W. J. Durrance said he came out to the
park to see what Rick Scott had to say.


He added: "I'm glad he chose to stop in
Okeechobee. "He shows he is for the little
man by stopping in a place like Okeecho-
bee," said his wife, Teresa.
Herb Wells said he was here "just to hear
what he has to say. I think he knows a lot
about health care." Bill Dover said he was
there for the fresh air and breakfast. He said
he had already voted so he had no political
reason to attend. Barbara Nichols said she
was there to hear what Mr. Scott had to say.
"You can't get too educated on these type
things."


Independent gubernatorial candidate states views


By Pete Gawda. -
Okeechobee News
"I have a solution for ..
the state to create jobs,"
Daniel Imperato, indepen-
dent candidate for gov- *
ernor, stated during a far
ranging interview with the
Okeechobee News when Daniel
he was in town on Oct. 20. Imperato
"I am a man of honor and
integrity," he added.
"Florida needs a governor that under-
stands the state," the candidate said. The
West Palm Beach resident, who has three
honorary doctorates, was born to Italian
immigrants in Boston and was once a semi-
pro hockey player. He is an international
businessman with a variety of business in-
terests. Mr. Imperato says he started out in
the jewelry business in Israel and then went
into telecommunications.
"The reason I am qualified to be gover-
nor is that I am a world educated person."


Mr. Imperato proposes marketing Florida
fruits and vegetables in overseas countries
where he has business connections. He also
proposes to use his international connec-
tions to attract foreign investors.
"No more future taxes," Mr. Imperato as-
serted. He proposes an added value tax for
goods and services produced in Florida that
would not apply to Florida residents. He also
advocates an arrival and departure tax for
people who visit the state.
He has definite ideas about improving
the state's education system. "Without edu-
cation we can't prosper. Jobs come from ed-
ucation." As for FCAT: "It's all messed up,"
the candidate said. "I would make it simpler
and less confusing." However, he would not
make it less stringent.
He has a three-pronged plan to create
more jobs and stimulate the economy: fusion
power, hydrogen rail and sweet sorghum.
He claims to own the rights to manufacture
fusion power plants. He says his hydrogen
rail system is 60 percent more efficient that
the current proposed high speed rail.


He proposes a rebate for residents who
install solar panels on their houses.
"I understand the federal government
better than Sink or Scott," Mr. Imperato said.
He makes that claim based on the knowl-
edge gained in his unsuccessful 2008 bid for
president.
"Other politicians talk about change," Mr.
Imperato said. "They take change from one
pocket to another and don't leave anything
out for you.
"The two-party system controls the me-
dia," the candidate claims. He said that
makes it very difficult for an independent
candidate like himself.

Public Forum/Speak Out


Letter to the Editor


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!

Paying for lights
I see the county is going to help bal-
ance the budget by charging for use of the
ball fields and so much per hour for using
the lights at the fields. If you go to the ball
games, would you help out by paying a cou-
ple dollars toward those fees?

Administrator's severance pay
SI think the four commissioners who vot-
ed Bonner a $40,000 gift need to leave office
now, not in two years.
One of them will leave office right after
the election since he is already a lame duck.
The other three we are stuck with until the
2012 election. But will people remember
this in two years? I wonder.

Governor's race
Did you notice in the debate that nei-
ther candidate knew what the minimum
wage is? I guess someone who has $60 mil-
lion dollars to blow on a campaign doesn't
have to worry about minimum wage. The
other candidate agreed with his answer, so
she is no better informed of the low end
wage earners plight.
It is rather amazing that Sink and Scott
are neck and neck in the polls, despite the
fact that Scott has spent so much more
money on the ads. According to the elec-
tions report from Oct. 7, since winning the
primary (during which he spent $50 million
to defeat his Republican opponent), Scott
had spent about $37 million and Sink had
spent less than $3 million.
I don't like either choice for governor.
The two-party system is not working. The
candidates it produces prove that.
Why don't you all do yourself and the
state of Florida a favor and check out the
other candidates on the ballot. Last election,
and this time, our Republican and Democrat
choices pretty much stink. There has to be
a better choice somewhere in the list. And
they're not on TV blasting anyone.


My problem seems to be that if Sink
lost billions of dollars of pension fund mon-
ies how can we trust she has the ability to
run this country. That said, Scott has at least
run big companies and has a successful
business background. But there again how
can Scott be the CEO of a company and not
know how it is run on a day to day basis?
But is it really only the financial officer's
fault if the state retirement system loses mon-
ey because the whole stock market crashes?
My retirement 401K took a big hit too, but I
did not blame anyone. Investments such as
Lehman Brothers seemed to be very conser-
vative but when the banking crisis hit, a lot
of people got hurt. I don't blame Alex Sink
for that.
The pension fund is administered by
the state board of administration, which has
three members -- Governor Charlie Crist, At-
torney General Bill McCollum, and Finance
Officer Alex sink. In other words, she had
one vote of three, hardly in charge. More-
over, that state board of administration does
not directly invest and administer the money
but delegates the responsibility to an execu-
tive director. Ash Williams is the current ex-
ecutive director, and the job of investing the
state's assets is divided between in-house in-
vestment managers and external investment
managers. So as a member of the board,
Sink is one of the three who are "in charge,"
but she's in charge along with the two other
trustees. And she's not responsible for day-
to-day investment decisions. This is not my
opinion, this is law, these are facts, this is
exactly how it actually works. Of course, the
ads that say Alex Sink cost the state all that
money conveniently leave out that the ma-
jority of the State Board of Administration is
Republican, and that Alex Sink has nothing
to do with the investing process.


Halloween
I think it is sad that there are kids who
have never gotten to go trick-or-treating be-
cause the adults don't want to be bothered
with the old traditions.

Remembering mom
My name is Susan Williams. I am a volun-
teer for the Fifth Annual Okeechobee Blood
Roundup in memory of my mother and here
is her story:
During the summer of 2005, my mother
spent hours tending to her flower gardens,
mowing her yard, and, as summer turned
into fall in New Hampshire, raking up big
bags of fallen leaves. At a young 74 years
of age, she enjoyed her family, friends, hob-
bies and the Saturday ritual of shopping and
lunch with my two sisters ... life was good.
That November, my mother went to her
doctor because she could hear a pounding
in her head and became faint while doing
simple tasks at home and, even more alarm-
ing, while driving her car. The diagnosis was
autoimmune hemolytic anemia and the
prognosis was dire; without a transfusion of
blood she would die. She was immediately
admitted into the hospital to await the arrival
of the precious blood. Her rare O+ blood
type was difficult to match but eventually a
donor in Texas was located and the blood
was flown to her hospital in New Hamp-
shire.
Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout
the body. My mother's blood contained rare
warm gluten antibodies that saw her red
blood cells as germs so they and her white
blood cells attacked and destroyed them. To
further complicate matters, due to the rare
antibodies, blood suppliers had to be care-
ful that she did not receive the rare type O +
blood from the same donor twice because
that duplication of blood would kill her.
The cause of my mother's rare type of
anemia was never determined. She un-
derwent a myriad of tests and took several
regimens of drugs, some of which were ex-
perimental chemotherapy drugs. In August
2006, her doctors at the famed Lahey Clinic
near Boston removed her spleen in a failed
attempt to stop the destruction of her red
blood cells. Even though my mother con-
tinued to receive the much needed blood
transfusions every 7 to 10 days together with
24-hour oxygen therapy, she succumbed to
her disease in January 2007.
My mother never complained, felt sorry
for herself or cried, "Why me?" She always,
always appreciated the people who donated
that precious blood that enabled her to put
up a valiant fight for her life. My two sisters
and I miss our mother very much but we
are extremely proud of the grace and brav-
ery she showed; she continues to inspire us
every day.

I am sharing this story about my mother
to tell everyone that the most precious gift

Okeechobee City Council candidates questioned


The Okeechobee News invited read-
ers to submit questions for the candi-
dates for City Council. There are four
candidates for the three spots that will
be on the Nov. 2 ballot.
How long have you livedin in Okeecho-
bee? Tell us a little about your community
involvement.
LOWRY MARKHAM:
I was born and raised in
Okeechobee and have
lived here all of my life. I
have served as a city coun-
cilman for 12 years. During
this time, I have been on
different committees. I am
currently the chairman of
Lor the Tourism Development
Lowry Council and I am also the
Markham chairman of the Okeecho-
bee County Healthy Start Coalition.
DEVIN MAXWELL: My family moved to
Okeechobee in 1984 and I graduated from
OHS in 1989. My wife and I bought property
on SW 7th Avenue in 1999 with the dream
of one day building a home
there. In 2005 we began
construction and in 2007
we moved into our home.
In 2004 we bought and re-
stored a building near the
courthouse for use as our
law office. We won a state-
wide award for outstanding
rehabilitation of our office
Devin in 2009. I was appointed
Maxwell to the City Planning Board
five years ago and currently
serve as its Chairman. I serve the City on the
OUA Executive Board as an alternate mem-
ber. I am a member of Kiwanis Club, Main-
street, Economic Council and the Okeecho-
bee Bar Association. I am a volunteer leader
for my son's Boy Scout Pack. I am a member
of the First Baptist Church of Okeechobee.
DOWLING WATFORD: I am a life-long
Okeechobee resident and have lived in the
City almost my entire life. I graduated from
Okeechobee High School
and have a BS in business
management from Florida
Southern College. I am an
active member of the First
United Methodist Church
(Church Council Chair-
man), Kiwanis Club of
Okeechobee (Past Treas
& Pres, Life Member),
Dowling Okeechobee Battlefield
Watford Friends (Treas), Okeecho-
bee Historical Society, Trea-
sure Coast Council of Local Governments
(Treas), Treasure Coast Regional League of
Cities (Treas), and former youth soccer &
baseball coach.
CLAYTON WILLIAMS: My family moved
to Okeechobee in 1952. After graduating
from Okeechobee High
School, I served Dade, St.
Lucie and Okeechobee
counties with the Florida
Highway Patrol for eleven
years. In 1974, my wife
Jacque, and I decided to
make Okeechobee our per-
manent home. We raised
Clayton our two daughters here.
Williams We are active members of


the Grace Brethren Church and I am a board
member of Okeechobee Christian Academy
(formerly Grace Christian Schools). In ad-
dition, I am also a member of the Kiwanis
Club, Okeechobee Area Ag Council and
Gideons International. I am also the city's
appointee to the Central Florida Regional
Planning Council in Bartow.

Many times over the years, local offi-
cials have discussed combining the city
andcounty fire departments. Do you think
consolidating those departments would
be a good idea or a bad idea? Why?
MARKHAM: I am against consolidating
the city and the county fire departments. If
they were consolidated it would mean an in-
crease of taxes paid by the city taxpayers. As
it is now, the city fire department is funded
from the ad valorem. If they were consoli-
dated the city taxpayer would have to pay a
fire tax to the county. Also, the service to the
city would not be as sufficient as it is now.
Consolidation would mean higher taxes and
less service for the city residents.
MAXWELL: I do not favor combining the
City and County fire departments because
the City fire department currently provides a
good level of service, and works well with
the County. We have a response time of 3-4
minutes anywhere in the City and we don't
want that to increase. Our City also has an
above-average fire suppression rating, which
results in lower insurance premiums.
The City fire department already has a
solid working relationship with the County
under the leadership of Chief Herb Smith.
There is a mutual aid agreement in place,
which includes automatic aid when there is
a call to certain large buildings in the City.
Both departments also join in a special
operations team that was established and
certified by the State, which trains together
and shares equipment, to stay prepared for
special types of rescue. I would support ad-
ditional programs that promote efficiency.
WATFORD: I do not think it would be
a good idea to consolidate the fire depart-
ments at this time. With the small area size
of the City, our response times and service
to the citizens is much better than if one
department had to cover the entire county.
(Previously we tried to consolidate the build-
ing department, and when the service de-
clined, the City re-established its department
in order to provide timely service.)
WILLIAMS: At this time, I see no advan-
tage for city taxpayers to merge the two fire
departments. In my opinion it will increase
the cost for city residences and businesses.
We have an excellent department that is
highly trained and well equipped for their
mission.

The office of city council is a part time
job. What other employment do you have?
How would your "regular" job affect your
city council duties?
MARKHAM: I am a real estate sales-
man. This does not have any effect on the
time spent on the city council business. My
schedule is very flexible and it allows me
time to spend on city business and to attend
committee meetings during the day.
MAXWELL: I am self-employed as a
lawyer with the firm of Maxwell & Maxwell,
P.A. My wife and I practice together as law


partners. This arrangement gives both of us
flexibility in taking care of our obligations
outside of work. I feel very fortunate to have
attained a law degree and I feel a respon-
sibility to use that education for the public
good. I firmly believe in the motto: To those
who are given much, much is expected.
WATFORD: I am co-owner and General
Manager of Okeechobee Motor Co (Ford
dealership). This allows me great flexibil-
ity in the hours I can devote to City related
business. Many people do not understand
the amount of time involved in serving on
the City Council. It is not just two meetings
a month, but numerous meetings and func-
tions that a Council Member must attend.
WILLIAMS: I am a licensed insurance
and real estate agent. As such, I am an in-
dependent contractor and have been since
1981. I have no problem attending to city
matters at any time.

Do you think the city limits will expand
in the near future? Why or why not?
MARKHAM: The city limits has been ex-
panded in the past and I feel it will expand
more in the future. As new businesses come
into the area, they like working with the city
and want the services of the city police and
the city fire department.
MAXWELL: I do not believe the City
limits will expand in the near future, unless
we take some proactive measures to grow
our city in a positive way. The boundary of a
city usually expands when a property owner
wants to develop next to the city, and they
need or want the services that are available
only in the city. That owner would request to
be annexed into the city in order to have city
services available. Annexation is a healthy
process because the city can increase its tax
base when there is an opportunity for good
growth, and can control or prevent negative
growth. This is not presently occurring in
Okeechobee because there is no benefit to
locating in the City. We need to work more
closely with the OUA and the County to de-
velop an urban services boundary.
WATFORD: Until the economic situation
improves, I doubt that the City limits will
expand. Future development may warrant
expansion of the City limits.
WILLIAMS: I don't see the city limits ex-
panding in the near future.

Those trying to attract new business
and industry to Okeechobee have men-
tioned that no matter which way you en-
ter the city, you have to pass areas that do
not reflect well on the community. What
can the city do to get property owners to
clean up and spruce up areas along the
main roads?
MARKHAM: The City Code Enforcement
Board is always working to ensure that
properties are well maintained. The City is
aware that some problems still exist and first
impressions are very important. When there
is a problem area there are legal steps and
procedures that must be followed. This is of-
ten a slow process because property owners
have rights and the Board must follow the
guidelines set forth.
MAXWELL: The entryways to the City
need to be improved and beautified, not just
for visitors and prospective new businesses,


but also as a source of community pride for
the residents.
Code enforcement is not a permanent
solution, because if there is a vacant build-
ing or vacant lot along the commercial cor-
ridor coming into our city, even if the owner
is made to clean it up, it is still a vacant build-
ing or lot. Economic development is the best
solution to this problem, because it results
in beautification, both by eliminating der-
elict structures, and increasing our tax base
so we have more money to put back into
the City.
Obviously, one component of promoting
economic development is to have an attrac-
tive city that people are drawn to. We need
to promote positive development, and focus
code enforcement at the same time. This is
an important issue that I will work on.
WATFORD: Although this theory has
been mentioned by several groups, it is not,
in my opinion, the most important to eco-
nomic recruitment. Transportation, schools,
shopping areas, cultural activities, econom-
ic/tax incentives, etc. are probably more im-
portant. Code violations should be pursued,
but balanced with the owner's property
rights.
WILLIAMS: I agree that in the past things
looked poorly and may not have made the
best impression on newcomers, but with the
code enforcement of both city and county,
the situation has improved. However, it is a
situation that must be constantly monitored
and maintained.

Detective warns of telephone loan threat scam


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A local detective is warning that a man is
calling people and trying to scam them by
threatening to have them put in jail if they
don't pay off a loan.
"He'll call you and say you've defaulted
on a loan you took out as much as a year
ago," said Detective Lieutenant Brad Stark
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO). "He says if you don't pay it back,
he'll have you put in jail."
Lt. Stark said two local people in
Okeechobee were contacted by this man
about a week ago.
In one case, the man told his potential
victim that they still owed $1,500 on an
old loan. He then threatened to have them
locked up if they didn't pay that amount.
But, after some arguing, he told the victim
he would settle for half that amount.
Apparently the man told one of his in-
tended local victims that he would see to it
that they went to jail for two years.
"He told one woman: 'I'll put your ... in
jail'," the detective said.
The second phone call was the same
scenario, but the man-who goes by Chris,


Steve, Shawn, Derrick Hernandez, Roger as
well as other names-wanted $3,000 this
time. However, he eventually told the mark
that he would settle for half of that.
"I actually called him Monday, Oct. 18,
and told him who I was and told him to quit
harassing these people," said Lt. Stark. "He
said they owed him money and we began to
argue. Then, he hung up on me."
Not wanting to let it go that easily, the
detective called the man back. This time, he
answered with a different name.
Despite the names, Lt. Stark said the man
had a very distinct Middle Eastern accent.
The man claims he's with a financial in-
stitution. But when the detective traced the
phone number back to New York City it was
an apartment complex-not a business.
The name of the business he represents
also changes. The detective said it's been
known as Easy Cash USA, ECC Services and
XO Communication.
Lt. Stark said the man is somehow getting
the victim's name, phone number, personal
information and bank account number off
the internet. In one case, said the detective,
he knew the name of a local woman's bank
as well as her routing and account num-
bers.

some sort of purchase.
"Both of my victims had purchased things
off the internet," said Lt. Stark.
But, neither of them sent him any mon-
ey.
Also, both intended victims were females.
This, said the detective, may be on purpose.
"There's a better chance of intimidating a
female than a male," said Lt. Stark. "But, this
could be happening to others and no one's
reporting it."
Lt. Stark then offered these suggestions:
if you have a loan and are contacted, call
the company who lent you the money to


check on the status of the loan. Also, check
your credit history at least once a year and
pay close attention to your credit card state-
ments. Finally, if you make purchases on the
internet try to restrict those purchases to se-
cured web sites only.
The local detective said he's tried to enlist
the help of the New York City Police Depart-
ment, but has had no success.
"I called three to four different numbers.
There's no possible way to get hold of a live
person, that I'm aware of," he said. "It's frus-
trating, to say the least."
He went on to say he's also contacted
the Florida Comptroller's Office, but has re-
ceived little to no help from them.


Rec vehicles destroyed in fire


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Approximately $250,000 in property
damage was done Monday evening after a
fire at 6255 N.W. 24th Street, Okeechobee
County Fire Rescue said.
Lt. Terry Parrish said two units and
seven firemen responded to a garage fire
and found the 50 by 100 feet structure fully
involved with flames shooting through the
roof area. Lt. Parrish said the fire turned
into a dangerous inferno because of items
inside the garage.


"When we arrived a loud explosion
blew off the door on the north east cor-
ner," Parrish added.
No one was injured in the blaze that ap-
parently started in a storage area. The State
Fire Marshall will determine the cause.
Okeechobee City Firemen assisted in
putting out the blaze. About 2,500 gallons
of water was used. Items damaged or de-
stroyed inside the garage included several
recreational vehicles, welding equipment,
riding lawnmowers, two four wheelers, a
scooter, a Dixie Chopper, and a jet ski.

School receives updated I


play area for students .


Okeechobee Christian Academy recently
installed an exciting new play area. The pre-
vious play area was dilapidated and unsafe
for use. The students are now climbing,
sliding and enjoying a safe structure. The
playground was graciously installed with
donations from a few local businesses, how-
ever, has an outstanding balance to owner.
Okeechobee Christian Academy is taking
donations to offset the cost of the new struc-
ture.
If you are able to donate to this exciting
project, please visit www.donationfundrais-
er.com.


The new playground is just one indica-
tion of God's faithfulness to Okeechobee
Christian Academy. "Ultimately, we are in-
vesting in children. We believe in supporting
the church and parents in raising the next
generation to love God with all of their heart,
mind and strength. Our efforts at Okeecho-
bee Christian Academy are to benefit the
children and to create an environment that
is challenging, loving and motivating." says
Principal, Nick Reynolds.

Halloween contact lenses can


seriously damage your eyes


TALLAHASSEE-Professional Opti-
cians of Florida is warning consumers of
eye health concerns related to the use of
non-corrective colored contact lenses (cos-
metic lenses) for Halloween.
Cosmetic lenses are used to change eye
color or provide the wide-eye look made
popular by Lady Gaga, and are sold illegal-
ly as over-the-counter Halloween costume
accessories at retail outlets and online.
Cosmetic contact lense sales are carefully
regulated in Florida by the Department of
Health, because they have the same health
risks as corrective lenses.
All contact lenses affix to the cornea;
the wrong lens can change the shape of
the cornea; they can damage the eye, if not
fitted properly and handled safely; they re-
quire professional oversight to ensure that
the lenses fit the cornea. Severe eye infec-
tions have been reported in as little as 24
hours of wear time with improper use.
The sale of any contact lens including
cosmetic lens in Florida without a prescrip-
tion from an eye care physician is a felony
offense, punishable by up to five years in
jail.
"Every year eyecare professionals from


across the State see incidences of eye in-
jury due to improper oversight of contact
lenses" said James Reese, President of the
Professional Opticians of Florida.
Opticians' care about eye health there-
fore, they are recommending that consum-
ers ensure that they consult a Licensed
Optician whenever they choose an eye
product, whether it is contact lenses, eye-
glasses or low-vision aids. Licensed Opti-
cians are vision experts; they are trained
to recommend and safely fit a range of de-
vices to improve eyesight. A Licensed Opti-
cian can also provide training on contact
lens use and instruction on hygiene. To find
out more about what Licensed Opticians
and other eye care professionals can do for
you, visit www.LicensedOptician.info.
If you suspect the unlicensed sale of
contact lens or an individual performing
any other unlicensed health care practice,
call the Department of Health's toll-free
hotline at 877-HALT-ULA (877-425-8852)
or email them at HaltULA@doh.state.fl.us.

the service line against Fort Pierce Central.
She had seven aces in the first game along.
Jones said he was unhappy with the fi-
nal game of the Suncoast match because
his squad made a lot of unforced errors. "It
was typical for us but unlike games in the
past, we did finish strong. We were down
one point and we finished with three strong
plays to get the win."
Senior LeAnna Cotton had 11 kills and 25
assists while Sophomore Sarah Davis had 12
assists to lead Okeechobee over Suncoast.
Miranda Serrano had nine kills against Sun-
coast while Paige McCrary had seven kills.


Maci Thomas had two aces and six digs and
Darby Jones added 11 digs and five kills. Cot-
ton had nine assists and nine kills while Re-
bekah Bryan had 10 kills against Fort Pierce.
Coach Todd Jones predicted Okeechobee
had the talent to knock off the Lady Falcons
(14-12) earlier this year. Okeechobee (17-5)
secured a berth in the Regional tournament
whether they won or lost the championship
match.
Jensen Beach has ended Okeechobee's
dreams of a district title for the past four
years.

Okeechobee High School students attend College Day


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Thirty-five colleges and technical schools
from Florida and Georgia attended the annu-
al OHS College Day held at the High School
cafeteria on Tuesday.
Guidance Counselor Bill Black said the
event has been going on for 22 years. He
said it is a valuable event to Okeechobee
kids who are considering college. Both the
junior and senior classes are invited to at-
tend the event.
"It gives the kids a chance to see some
colleges they might never know about oth-
erwise. I think it's been a wonderful event
over the years," he added.
Black, who retires this year, said he hopes
the event continues. He said the recruiters
of the colleges and universities are on a cir-
cuit each year and stop at a number of high
schools in Florida. He said it works out for
both the college and prospective students.
"We've had a slight rise in the number
of kids going to college. More students are
getting some form of education beyond high


school. College isn't for everybody but more
training is," he added.
Courtney Aufdenkampe, recruiter at Full
Sail University in Winter Park, said she got
a great response from local students inter-
ested in a career in entertainment media.
She said she was glad to have the oppor-
tunity to get the information out to students,
"We have 29 majors and it gives us a chance
to explain what we have. Most of the kids
were really interested."
Recruiters for the Armed Forces were
also on hand. Not only are students invited
but their parents and/or guardians as well.
Kaitlyn Miles, a senior at OHS said col-
lege day gives kids a chance to find out what
colleges have to offer. She said most of her
friends and classmates asked about majors,
dormitory life, location and extra curricular
activities.
"This is the year to decide on our future.
It is at the front of our minds," she added.
She plans to attend Indian River State Col-
lege for one year and then transfer to Florida
Atlantic or the University of South Florida.


Nikki Perdomo, a junior at OHS, said the
event helps kids expand their learning and
get to know more about their opportuni-
ties. "To be honest with you, I didn't know
there were so many colleges in Florida," she
added.
Perdomo said juniors must start to make
decisions. She said she would like to study
acting and perhaps the law. "Juniors can't
slack off. It is really important to keep those
grades up. This event brings things close to-
gether and you can see what will be good
for you."
Shawn Horvath said he wants to attend
the U.S. Naval Academy in Bethesda, Md.
and study aeronautical engineering. He said
he also wants to serve the nation. He said he
was really excited to see all of the schools
come to Okeechobee.
"I think most of my friends definitely
want to go to college, get away from home
and spread their wings. I think it's really im-
portant to them to make something of their
life," he added.
Senior Tim Gray said he will attend the

He talked to a couple of pharmacists in
Okeechobee about the career and said it
something he'd like to pursue.
"All of the kids are really into it and pretty
pumped up. I think the majority of our class
will go to college. Everybody wants to get a
good lifestyle," he added.

Ms. Gustafson said Girl Scouts have trans-

Ms. Gustafson said they also want Girl
Scouting to revert to the core values first
presented in 1912. They want the program
to be more than just achieving badges on a
vest. The eight original subjects of the Scouts
program include first aid, home making, art,
and music.
The Scout program is also on line with
chat rooms for advice. They continue to be a
servant of the community where possible.
"Girl Scouts are doing a lot of great things
over the years," she added.
Al Jacks of Castle spoke on the growing

the event. Ronald McDonald will be on hand
this year to entertain children. Many free gifts
and a free lunch will be provided.

OHS Brahmans face Hardee Wildcats in away game


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School Brahmans
line up against an unusual Hardee squad to-
night that is struggling with a (2-6) record.
Hardee has struggled on the defensive
side of the football this year as they have al-
lowed 191 points in their eight games. They
allowed 41 points to Palmetto and 36 points
to Immokalee.
On offense the team has averaged just
under 18 points per game. They boast an op-
tion attack that has rushed for 1,617 yards,
an average of 5.8 yards per rush.
Jarrius Lindsey has rushed for 707 yards
and two touchdowns to lead the offense.
Colby Baker has 279 yards rushing, and An-
drew Hooks has 255 yards on the ground.
Jacob Mayer has four rushing touchdowns.
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson said the
Wildcats have turned the ball over a lot this


year on rushing plays and are adjusting to a
new coach, Buddy Martin.
"We just have to be disciplined, make
few mistakes, and hit. Hardee is the best
(2-6) team I've seen," he added.
Jackson predicted tonight's battle will


Health spa hosts weight lifting competition


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Weight lifting enthusiasts in Okeechobee
competed Saturday in a weight lifting com-
petition at the Douglas Health Spa.
Marvin Thomas, a naval veteran, and
Clinton Williams, helped the gym organize
the event which included several weight
classes and athletes.
Cody Maupin, Lyle McDowell, Alfonso
Tinajero and Steven McKinley were among
the athletes that won their weight classes on
Saturday.
Maupin was able to lift 200 pounds.
McKinley won his weight classification with
a lift of 225 pounds. Tinajero was able to
clear 280 pounds, a career best.
Maupin said he plans on lifting weights
until he dies because it makes him feel better
and gives him energy, "I love this. I worked
out a little too much before the event and
got a little tired, but I feel good."
Tinajero narrowly missed out on the 300
pound club, a prestigious club for weight
lifters but the 18 year old said he intends to
break that barrier in the future.
"I didn't think I'd lift that much today so
I'm a happy man. I've been practicing," he
added.
Tinajero practices every day. He said he
got into some trouble back in ninth grade
and couldn't hang out with friends. He took
up weight lifting, and is glad that he did.
"These other guys in the gym know how
to bench and are really good. I've stayed
out of trouble and done positive things," he
said.
McKinley, a Deputy Sheriff for Okeecho-
beeCounty, said he feels weight lifting and
training is part of the job. He said going to
gym promotes a positive message of fitness
for the community.
"Its something I do as a hobby but it's
nice to come in here and get rewarded for it.
I feel weight lifting is something we can do
to make ourselves safe on the job."


Williams said weight lifting is all about
pride and bragging rights. "The clear and jerk
is a true test, the ultimate test of strength, but
when people ask you how much you bench
when they want to know about your phy-
sique."
Trophies were given out to the winners in
each classification.

be a physical one. He said his defense must
stand up to a strong Hardee offensive line
and avoid big plays.
"We need to stop them on first and sec-
ond downs and force the pass. We have to
make tackles, and get some turnovers," he
added.
Hardee QB Colby Baker has thrown only
35 passes and completed seven, less than
one per game. Jackson said they will try
some play action passes and move Baker
around so he can use his running skills.
On offense, Jackson said the Brahmans
must maintain drives and he challenged QB
Jack Radebaugh to get the ball to his receiv-
ers. He said the Brahmans might have an
edge in that area of the football game.
"I feel we've done a better job on the of-
fensive line and Jack has done a good job


getting rid of the ball," he said.
Jackson also praised Colby Frank for his
efforts in the punt game. Frank has turned
into one of the better punters in South Flor-
ida this year. He had 261 yards in punts last
week.
Okeechobee has some lingering injuries
with Daron Washington out with a broken
ankle, Thor Harden slowed by a knee injury,
Brant Harden with a back injury, and Al Mor-
ris with a shoulder injury.
"Hardee has played well at home and
they take a lot of pride in protecting their
home field. They still have things to play for
so I expect a tough game," Jackson added.
Tonight's kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Hardee
High School in Wauchula.

Big Lake Juniors Volleyball


Club starts new season


Big Lake Juniors, Okeechobee's very
own travel volleyball club, is set to go for
another exciting season beginning in Janu-
ary 2011. Since its 1998 inception, Big
Lake's tradition of developing highly com-
petitive volleyball players at the secondary
and post secondary levels has become the
norm. This is evidenced in our middle and
high school teams with such undeniable
records.
As we begin our 13th season, we are
excited to see this pattern continue with
the opportunity of young players joining
our Big Lake family. Big Lake from last year
was comprised of five teams ranging from
a ten and under to 15 and under.
Participating in Big Lake requires travel
on weekends for up to seven out of town

Halloween safety tips suggested


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Deputies
urge the public to follow basic safety tips
so your child can have a safe Halloween
this year.
Trick or treat only in neighborhoods fa-
miliar to your family or attend a planned
event like the Halloween event planned at
the Agri-Civic Center on Sunday from 5:30
until 8 p.m.
A parent, older sibling, or other adult
should always accompany children under
12 years old. If your child is old enough to
trick or treat without an adult, have him
stay in a group.
Lawmen also urge trick or treaters to
only approach homes that are well lit and
to stay outside the home and not enter
homes.
Other rules to follow include walking
only on sidewalks where available, cross-
ing the street at a corner or crosswalk, and
always look to the left, right and left again
before going out onto the street.
Families are urged to have a communi-
cation plan in place. Tell kids to call home
if they become separated from a group or
get lost. They advise parents to let their
children know where they are and how to
reach them. You might also establish a pe-
riodic check in time for children. Another
option is to have older kids text their par-


ents to check in during the night.
Parents should also inspect the treats
that your child collects during the eve-
ning. Any unwrapped or partially wrapped
candy should be thrown away. Authorities
advice children should not eat any opened
or questionable looking treats.
Motorists are asked to use caution in
neighborhoods and to drive slower. They
also urge motorists to exit driveways care-
fully and always watch out for children.
Children are also urged to wear cos-
tumes that are easily seen by motorists. Re-
flective costumes are recommended. Re-
flective trick-or-treat bags are also a safety
measure. The costumes should fit. Loose
clothing decreases mobility and oversized
masks can make it hard to see potential
dangers.
The Florida Highway Patrol will also
hold a crackdown on drunk driving during
the Halloween weekend. The "Over the
limit, Under Arrest" campaign began this
week. Their tips include, plan a safe way
home before the festivities begin, desig-
nate a sober driver before drinking, and
to call *FHP or (*347) if you see a drunk
driver on the road this week.
Okeechobee firefighters stated candles
should not be used to illuminate jack 'o
lanterns because it is a fire hazard. They
urge the use of glow sticks of flashlights
instead.


Special to the Okeechobee News/OKMS
Candy donation
Attorney Hugh Eighmie from Hoskins, Turco, Lloyd and Lloyd dropped by
the Okeechobee Main Street office with a large donation of candy and prizes
for the annual Halloween Celebration to be held at the Agri-Civic Center on
Sunday, Oct. 31, from 5:30 until 8 p.m. There will be games and activities,
a haunted trail, costume contest for ages 0 through 14, candy and prizes.
There will also be a trophy awarded to the best dressed participation booth.

tor Toni Doyle at 863-357-6246.

Filipino cultural center



denied tax exemption


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Owners of a proposed cultural center
were denied tax exemption this year by
the Okeechobee County Value Adjustment
Board when it met Monday, Oct. 25.
The Philippine-American Cultural Foun-
dation owns a 20 acre plot of land on S.W
16th Avenue. They have plans for develop-
ing this property into a cultural complex
including an arts center, a festival village
and Philippine garden. The mission of the
foundation is educating Filipino Americans
and the general public of the culture of the
Philippines through such things as folk arts,
dance, theater, music, and the exhibition
of cultural artifacts. The property was pur-
chased in May of 2009. It was cleared and a
ground breaking ceremony was held Aug. 1,
2009. To date no buildings have been built
on the property except for an equipment
storage shed and no cultural activities have
taken place on the site.
Okeechobee County Property Appraiser
Bill Sherman denied their request for tax ex-
emption. It was his position that on Jan. 1,
2010 cultural activities would have to have
been taking place on the property.
Attorney Roberto Ruelo, representing the
foundation, described work that had been
done in 2009, all of which involved land
preparation such things a clearing, grading,
fencing and building an access road.
"Our position is that to use the property
and receive an exemption it has to be used
for the purpose it was intended," was the
opinion of Mr. Sherman's lawyer, Ana Tor-
res. "Is vacant property exempt?" she asked.
"Our position is that it is not."
Ms. Torres argued that, according to state
statute, only property that was planned to be
used as a church, educational institution or
affordable housing could remain vacant and
receive tax exemption.


"It all hinges on the use," said Mickie
Bandi of Mr. Sherman's office. "It can't get
an exemption until it is used for an exempt
purpose. We haven't seen the exempt use."
"This is not an easy decision for the prop-
erty appraiser," Ms. Torres said. "They want
this group to get an exemption but they are
legally constrained.
"I personally don't agree with the law.
However, we are bound by it," stated board
member Michael Sumner as he made the
motion to uphold Mr. Sherman's decision.
Turning to other business, the board de-
nied the appeal of John Featherstone. Mr.
Featherstone has 1.013 acres adjacent to his
River Acres home which he owns under the
name of his nonprofit corporation, World
Tree. Even though this is a 501 3 (c) organi-
zation, the board upheld Mr. Sherman's de-
nial of a tax exempt status. Mr. Featherstone
said the interests of World Tree are scientific,
charitable, and education. He said he was
involved in experimental plantings, studying
the coi in the pond and studying the birds in
the hammock. However, he could produce
no documentation of scientific research. He
admitted that there was no building on the
property and no educational classes of any
kind met there. He produced no information
on money raised for charity. Mr. Bandi stated
that not every 501 3 (c) qualifies for tax ex-
emption under Florida statutes.
Mr. Sherman had assessed the value of
Laurel Oaks Senior Apartments at $1.6 mil-
lion. The owners appealed that decision,
claiming the property was worth less. How-
ever, the board upheld Mr. Sherman's deci-
sion.
The cases of David Klein, Thomas Nich-
oll, DBR Lease Exchange and Ronald and
Lorraine Mixon will be heard on Dec. 1.
