Closed chamber


raises questions


Chamber of Commerce
reportedly owes more
than $100,000 in taxes
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
What is going on with the
Okeechobee Chamber of Com-
merce? The chamber building at the
intersection of State Road 70 and
Parrott Avenue has been closed for
months. A group of local business-
men are planning to start a "new and
improved" chamber.
There are still many unanswered
questions.
Chamber president Matt Buxton
would not go on record and cur-


rent board members could not be
reached. However, local business-
man and city council member Dowl-
ing Watford and Terry Burroughs, a
member of Okeechobee Main Street
who was instrumental in forming
the Okeechobee Business Develop-
ment Board, offered their insights.
"Basically the chamber is inac-
tive," Mr. Watford said. The tele-
phone has been disconnected in the
chamber building and there are re-
ports that the power has been turned
off.
Mr. Watford said it was his idea to
put Okeechobee Main Street's tele-
phone number on the chamber door
to answer general questions about

Newly elected county

commissioners sworn in


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Something unheard of not too
many years ago in Okeechobee
County took place at the Thursday,
Nov. 18 meeting of the Okeechobee
County Commission.
"This is a truly historic moment
in more than one way," said retired
Circuit Judge Bill Hendry, who ad-
ministered the oath of office to newly
elected commissioners Bryant Cul-
pepper and Joey Hoover.
"For the first time in the history of
this county," the judge said, "we have
a Republican majority on the board.
There was a time when I knew all
the Republicans in the county-both
of them."


The two commissioners sworn in
are Republicans, as is Commissioner
Margaret Helton.
Commissioner Culpepper is
new to the position. Commissioner
Hoover just completed his appoint-
ment by the governor to finish out
the unexpired term of the late Marvin
Wherrell.
Before the swearing in ceremony,
the judge, a local historian, pro-
ceeded to give the history lecture he
is noted for at these occasions. He
noted that the predecessors of the
current board also faced a tight eco-
nomic situation during the Great De-
pression. The banks in Okeechobee

Continuous maintenance of drainage system necessary


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Since South Florida is fairly flat, drainage
is an important issue. Originally, during wet
times, there was a sheetflow of water from
north of Lake Okeechobee to the lake and
then on south through the Everglades. The
lake spread out or decreased in area as the
water level rose or fell.
After several major hurricanes and an in-
crease in population with a corresponding
increase in impervious surfaces, there was a
need for some type of central drainage sys-
tem. In 1949 the South Florida Flood Control
District was formed. As the name implied,
the purpose of the organization was to pre-
vent flooding. The name of that organization
was later changed to the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District (SFWMD) and the
organization was tasked with protecting the
environment as well as flood control. The
SFWMD covers all or parts of 16 South Flori-


da counties from Orlando to Key West.
The SFWMD operates the primary drain-
age system of canals, pump stations and
water control structures which transport
excess water to the ocean, the gulf or the
Everglades.
"We can move water faster than nature
can," asserted Allison Murphy, regulatory
professional with the SFWMD. The SFWMD
operations control center in West Palm
Beach monitors 200 water control sites.
Then there is the secondary drainage
system maintained by drainage districts
and local city and county governments and
large land owners. Locally, Taylor Creek is
part of the secondary drainage system. The
only special drainage district in the county is
Coquina Water Control District which main-
tains canals and water control structures in
the northwestern part of the county.
The tertiary drainage system is where the
rainfall enters the drainage system. It con-


Magistrate recommends fine reductions


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In a hearing held Tuesday afternoon,
Nov. 16 Okeechobee County Code Enforce-
ment Special Magistrate Lois Nichols recom-
mended that county commissioners reduce
two code violation fines.
A fine of $50 a day was imposed on the
property at 32614 U.S. 441 N. on Nov. 19,
2008. The fine ran until the property came
into compliance on Nov. 8, 2010. The cur-
rent owner, Joseph Zachary Gazza, acquired
the property as the result of foreclosure on a
tax lien and demolished the derelict struc-
ture that was the cause of the fine. The spe-
cial magistrate recommended the fine be
reduced to $2,632.
In the other fine reduction case, a fine of
$150 a day had been imposed on the 3612
S.E. 34th Ave. property belonging to DBR
Lease Exchange. As of Oct. 8, 2010 the fine
had accrued to $84,300. The derelict struc-
ture that was the cause of the fine has been
demolished and the lot has been cleaned
up. The special magistrate recommended
that the fine be reduced to $29,250 which is
half the assessed value of the property.
Code enforcement officer Beth Albert


stated that the S.W 19th Avenue property
of N & A Real Estate still has not come into
compliance. She said there were still com-
mercial coolers and one unlicensed vehicle
on the property. The owner was fined $25 a
day for every day of noncompliance begin-
ning Nov. 17.
Mrs. Albert stated that Angela Varson had
made progress toward coming into compli-
ance. A permit had been issued for her S.W
21th Street property and several preliminary
inspections had been completed. Tie downs
and siding were all that were necessary for
final inspection. Ms. Varson was given an
extension until Dec. 16 to come into compli-
ance.
Because David Morris had made consid-
erable progress toward coming into compli-
ance, the compliance date for his S.E. 21st
Street property was extended to Jan. 13.
The property of Jean M. and Carline Guer-
rier was found to be in compliance and that
case was not heard.
There will be no code hearing in Decem-
ber.

drainage systems maintained by homeown-
ers associations, mobile home parks and
businesses.
The SFWMD can take care of excess wa-
ter only after it enters their system. In order
for the SFWMD to dispose of excess water, it
must be received from well maintained sec-
ondary and tertiary drainage systems.
"The number one cause of flooding
complaints is lack of maintenance," stated
Angela Henderson-Sandoval, compliance
supervisor with the SFWMD.
During the dry season from November
to April is the best time for maintenance of
drainage systems with February and March
being the ideal months.

Road watch
The Florida Department of Transporta-
tion reminds motorists to wear safety belts
and drive with caution, courtesy, common
sense, and patience as they travel through
work zones. Remember, speeding fines are
doubled in work zones.

Culverts, grated inlets and other water
conveyance structures need to be kept free
of sediment and vegetation which can im-
pede the flow water. A major cause of prob-
lems in the tertiary system is crushed metal
culverts. Swales should be mowed regularly
and the banks kept stabilized by sod. Berms
should be stabilized with sod to prevent ero-
sion. Ditches and canals should be kept free
of fill material, yard waste, clippings, veg-
etation, sediment and trash. Before a storm,
drainage systems should be checked. After a
storm drainage systems should checked for
blockage and debris. The SFWMD recom-
mends that owners of tertiary drainage sys-
tem have a regular system of maintenance.

OPINION


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!

K-2 or "Spice"
Most people do not deliberately plan
for the children they bring forth, and most
rise to the challenge of rearing them, but
too many do not. Among those are the
ones who let their little girls dress like street
whores, have every electronic device known
to man, let the little boys mess up their hair
and put something on it to make it stay that
way, among many other things. If these par-
ents think parenting means to step down to
the child's level and let the child raise them,
they do not belong reproducing.

School's response to lost
taxes
Maybe the taxpayers are trying to tell
the school district that we are not happy
with the way they are spending our money.
I voted against it because I was not happy
with some of their spending and I think there
is a lot of areas they can reduce spending in
besides the areas that effect a child's educa-
tion. Maybe they should look at administra-
tion and the money spent on some sports.
Some sports receive no funding from the
school and have to raise it them self, while
other sports get money from the school.
Make it all equal and have all sports raise
their own money.
Education has enough money. As with
any expenditure it's not how much they get
but how they distribute it. I am in favor of
some version of a flat tax in order that all
pay, even those who get paid under the
table will pay when they buy something. I
buy many things online, but not in order to
avoid sales tax. In fact some businesses will
charge the tax and some do not. Ordinar-
ily, the ones you purchase from in the same
state do charge sales tax.
My concern is the state makes the rules
but does not give the local school board
enough money to comply and then threat-
ens to fine the local school boards for not
following the state rules.


It will be interesting to see what the
new Scott administration does with the
school issues.

Blood donations
Most of us have either needed a blood
transfusion sometime in our lives or else had
a family member or friend who needed a
transfusion. There is currently no substitute
for human blood. So if you are healthy and
can donate, please do so.
I have no problem "donating" blood,
however, I do have a problem with what the
patient is billed for the "donated" blood. I
know that there are costs to process the "do-
nated" blood, but the patient, or insurance
company is paying very well for the "dona-
tion." Someone is making much bucks.
The patient is being charged the cost of
collecting, processing and storing the blood.
All those people who work for the blood
bank are paid. The blood mobile costs a lot
to operate. And it costs a lot of money to buy
and maintain the equipment and pay the
personnel to do the blood processing.

Airplane security
The Transportation Security Adminis-
tration has opened an investigation target-
ing John Tyner, the Oceanside man who left
Lindbergh Field under duress on Saturday
morning after refusing to undertake a full
body scan. Tyner recorded the half-hour
long encounter on his cell phone and later
posted it to his personal blog, along with
an extensive account of the incident. Tyner
was on his way to South Dakota on Satur-
day to go pheasant hunting. He was chosen
for a full-body scan and opted out because
he thought it was invasive. He was then
informed that he would be subjected to a
body search. He told the TSA agent, "You
touch my junk and I'm going to have you ar-
rested." Tyner likened the proposed search
procedure to a "sexual assault." When he
tried to assert his rights, Tyner was told by
a TSA supervisor on tape, "By buying your
ticket you gave up a lot of rights." In the end,
security escorted Tyner out of the airport, af-
ter American Airlines refunded his ticket. But
now he's under investigation for leaving the
security area without permission. How does
that work I wonder, you're "escorted out by
security," but you left without permission?
It seems there is a simple solution for
those opposed to searches, DON'T FLY. If
you take a train, bus or drive the security is
entirely up to you.

Blood donations helped save
accident victim
It was a tragedy in February, 2005 when
five friends were involved in a car accident
on Hwy 441 N. which took two lives and
changed the other three. Cecelia Rodriguez,
who is now a teller at Center State Bank,
was one of those three.
Most of you will remember the story that
told of the car going out of control and flip-
ping as many as three or four times. Cecelia
was traumahawked to St. Mary's Hospital
with internal bleeding and unknown inju-
ries which proved so severe the doctors kept
her in an induced coma for three weeks and
in the ICU for a month. She doesn't remem-
ber, but has been told some details by her
mother and sisters who almost "lived" at the
hospital.
Cecelia recently explained that she had
a broken right femur and a broken pelvis.
They removed her spleen and had to put in a
temporary pacemaker. Once she was some-

CHAMBER
Continued From Page 1

the community, since city hall was getting a
lot of calls.
Mr. Burroughs said it was his understand-
ing that the current Okeechobee Chamber
of Commerce may be dissolved. He said the
Okeechobee Business Development Board
plans to form a completely different cham-
ber of commerce with business develop-
ment board members serving as chamber
board members. He declined to name the
new board members at this time.
Mr. Burroughs said he did not know if
the current chamber had been dissolved
yet. However, he said he was incorporating
a new chamber "as we speak." He added,
"We are being proactive."
Mr. Burroughs said it was not unusual
for a community to have two chambers. He
said he intended to seek accreditation from
the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Brian Cartland, the current director of the
business development board is expected to
serve as the executive director of the new
chamber.
"This would be a good thing for the com-
munity," Mr. Burroughs said, "Right now it
(the current chamber) is not doing the com-
munity any good."
Mr. Burroughs predicted that the newly
organized chamber and Okeechobee Main
Street would work together on various
events.
"This is a joint path," he added.
Mr. Burroughs said what he called an "in-
terim executive board" of nine members of
the business development board would be
appointed to the new chamber board of di-
rectors. At the end of the first year, one third
of the board seats would be up for election
and each year thereafter one third of the
board seats would be up for election.
Mr. Cartland said it was not a "done deal"
yet. However, he said he was ready to step
up to the new assignment, if necessary. He
predicted that a reorganized chamber would
be focused on economic development.
One of the unanswered questions is:
"Who are the Okeechobee Chamber of
Commerce members?" One of the first du-
ties of the new chamber would be to recruit
members.
From information obtained from
Okeechobee Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers, it appears that invoices for member-
ship dues have not been sent out in about
two years. Neither Mr. Burroughs nor Mr.
Watford's businesses have received bills for
chamber membership dues in two years.
The Okeechobee News, a longtime
chamber member, last received a member-
ship renewal notice in December 2008.
The last general membership meeting
was held last Spring. At that time, former
chamber executive secretary Brenda Ap-
pleton explained that she was helping the
chamber on a volunteer basis and that the
chamber office was staffed by volunteers.
Attempts to reach Mrs. Appleton for this
article were unsuccessful.
Then there is the question of unpaid tax-
es. The Florida Department of Revenue has
a tax lien against the Okeechobee Chamber
of Commerce for $1,745.14 in unpaid unem-
ployment taxes for 2007 and 2008. The In-


ternal Revenue Service has tax liens totalling
$105,467.50 against the Okeechobee Cham-
ber for various unpaid federal taxes from
2001 through 2009. The Florida Department
of Revenue tax lien was filed Feb. 5, 2009.
The IRS tax liens were filed April 29, 2010
and Oct. 13, 2010.
Mr. Burroughs said the new chamber
would not be held liable for those taxes. He
was uncertain how that matter would be
handled.
Another question: Who owns the cham-
ber building?
"While the property belongs to the Ham-
rick Trust, many people think the building
belongs to the chamber," asserted Okeecho-
bee City Administrator Brian Whitehall.
"That seems to be a foregone conclusion,
but there is no substantiation. I have not
found any definite proof."
The property appraiser has the building
assessed at $87,112.
More questions were raised by an
Okeechobee Police report filed on July
30 of this year. On that date Matt Buxton,
Brenda Appleton, former chamber secretary
Candice Burke and chamber director Tina
Treondle met with Detective Bill Saum. Mr.
Buxton had to leave the meeting and the
others explained to Detective Saum some
suspicious circumstances and events. They
were quick to point out they had no evi-
dence to implicate anyone of wrong doing.
They stated that on two different occasions,
receipts were found torn up in the trash and
about $150 to $300 was missing from the
chamber till. They did not have exact dates.
On another unknown date an unknown
amount of computer records disappeared.
These records included minutes of meetings
and bank statements. On May 7, 2010 it was
noticed that a computer was missing.
It was not immediately reported because
chamber officials were unsure if someone
had moved it for a good reason. Then on
May 14, 2010, when the office was opened,
the computer was discovered back in its
place. Chamber officials had no idea why it
was moved or if any records were missing
from the computer. They also reported some
records for a concealed gun class held at the
chamber were missing. The three chamber
officials stressed that there was no evidence
of any wrong doing against anyone. They
came to the police because they wanted to
document the information.
Because the Labor Day Parade and Festi-
val, which was traditionally run by the cham-
ber was "less than successful," according to
Mr. Watford, he said he asked Mr. Buxton if
someone else could take over the Lighted
Christmas Parade this year. Then he went to
Toni Doyle of Okeechobee Main Street and
asked if that organization would take over
organizing the event. Okeechobee Main
Street officials agreed to organize the parade
and festival this year only.
"We need to have it," Mr. Watford said
of the lighted Christmas parade. "It's a tradi-
tion."

Bryant Culpepper, left, and Joey Hoover, right, began terms as Okeechobee
County Commissioners at the Thursday, Nov. 18 meeting of the commission.
Retired Circuit Judge Bill Hendry, center, administered the oath of office to both
men.

had failed and county funds were held by a
bank in Stuart. County village exceeded 70
mills. As a cost saving measure, the judge
said that the county commission eliminated
all telephones in the courthouse except one
in the clerk's office. However, the sheriff's
office was located in the courthouse at that
time so the board had to restore the sheriff's
telephone. As another cost saving method,
county prisoners were leased to Osceola
County. The board also eliminated the posi
tion of road superintendent. Each commis-
sioner took charge of the roads in his district.
The board discontinued publishing the min-
utes in the Okeechobee News. The position
of county agricultural agent was eliminated.
However, due to citizen protests, that posi-
tion was restored. The county set up a can-
ning factory near the old jail. The county
also set up a welfare system to give destitute
widows $4 to $10 a month, depending on
their financial situation.
"One thing that does not change is your
duties and responsibilities as a county com-
missioner," the judge said. "That is to make
informed decisions."
"Be a good listener," the judge admon-
ished. "Listen carefully to what is said and
what is not said. Ask questions and keep
asking questions, Bring your common sense
to the table and use it."
Commissioner Clif Betts was re-elected
chairman of the commission. Commission-
er Ray Domer was named first vice chair and
Commissioner Helton was named second
vice chair.
As the suggestion of Commissioner
Hoover the board agreed to have one meet-


ing a quarter in the evening.

Diet tips help those with diabetes


November is Diabetes Awareness month
and a healthy diet is the best way that pa-
tients with diabetes can not only manage
their diabetes, but also improve their overall
health. There is no "special diet" for patients
with diabetes -they need only follow stan-
dard guidelines for healthy eating. Check out
these ten tips for a diabetes-friendly diet that
works for any member of the family:
Count the carbs. Carbohydrates have
the greatest impact on blood sugar, so it's
important to monitor and limit intake ac-
cordingly. Remember: table sugar is only
one kind of carbohydrate, and doesn't ele-
vate blood sugar any more than other types.
Get into the habit of checking food labels for
carb and sugar content.
Substitute, substitute, substitute. If you
do eat something sweet, remove something
starchy from your meal later in the day. For
instance, if you have a slice of cake after
lunch, skip the rolls at dinner.
Remember that sugar isn't easy on the
waistline. People with diabetes must be es-
pecially vigilant about maintaining proper
weight. Sugary foods can undermine these
efforts, since they're often high in fat and
calories.


Church to

host Life Line

Screening
Residents living in and around the
Okeechobee community can be screened
to reduce their risk of having a stroke or
bone fracture. The Okeechobee Christian
Church will host Life Line Screening on
Monday, Dec. 13. The site is located at
3055 S.E. 18th Ter. in Okeechobee. Ap-
pointments will begin at 10 a.m.
Stroke is the third leading cause of
death and a leading cause of permanent
disability. Eighty percent of stroke victims
had no apparent warning signs prior to
their stroke.
Screenings identify potential cardio-
vascular conditions such as blocked ar-
teries and irregular heart rhythm, abdom-
inal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of
the arteries in the legs, which is a strong
predictor of heart disease. A bone density
screening to assess osteoporosis risk is
also offered and is appropriate for both
men and women.
For more information regarding the
screenings, prices or to schedule an ap-
pointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit
our website at www.lifelinescreening.
com. Pre-registration is required.


Know that sugar-substitutes aren't
carb-free. These products still contain some
form of carbohydrate, so they can still affect
blood sugar.
Check blood sugar after a sweet treat.
Monitor how carbohydrates impact your
blood sugar levels, and talk to your doctor
about changing your insulin dosage if nec-
essary.
Don't skimp on the fiber. Choose high-
fiber foods like whole grains and cereals.
These foods both lower cholesterol and help
maintain steady blood sugar.
Limit fat intake. Uncontrolled diabetes
can damage the capillaries, which is why
patients with diabetes are at increased risk
for heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
Limit fat and cholesterol, because they also
increase risk of these conditions.
Lay off the alcohol. The body processes
alcohol the same way it processes fat. Alco-


Food drive i
The Annual Food for Families food drive
began Monday and continues through Nov.
22.
For most of the 26 years that Food For
Families drives have been conducted in the
Okeechobee area, Raulerson Hospital has
been one of the main drop-off points for
donations and has provided the warehouse
space that holds and becomes the distribu-
tion point in Okeechobee County for local
agencies that regularly feed or provide meals
to individuals and families in need.
As always, the non-perishable food items
that are donated during Food For Families
provides not just holiday meals but in many
cases fills pantries at soup kitchens and shel-
ters so that the needy in our community can
be fed for months to come.
All food and donations made in Okeecho-
bee County will stay in Okeechobee County.
Raulerson Hospital is asking businesses
and individuals in our community to please
support this great cause. Your donations
can be dropped off at Raulerson Hospital,
Seacoast National Bank and Publix Grocery
Store.

hol also contains calories, which can silently
undermine weight-loss efforts.
Watch portion sizes. Consider using
the American Diabetes Association's Create
Your Plate strategy for balancing portions of
fruits and vegetables; starches; and proteins.
Eating consistently appropriate portion siz-
es makes it easier to maintain weight and
blood sugar levels.
Create a healthy, delicious meal plan.
Take time each week to plan out daily nutri-
tious meals. Patients who plan ahead often
report that they are less likely to make un-
healthy last-minute decisions about eating.
Your doctor or dietitian can help come up
with plans and recipes.
Talk to your doctor or dietitian about cre-
ating a diabetes-friendly meal plan that the
entire family can enjoy.

Hospital.

There will also be a collection at the
Okeechobee Blood Round Up this weekend
Nov. 20 and 21 at the Freshman Campus.
Please give blood and a non-perishable food
item both are desperately needed.

Heart Gallery to feature


children in foster care


The Heart Gallery of Okeechobee & the
Treasure Coast, a unique and stirring travel-
ing photographic exhibit featuring children
in foster care hoping to be adopted, will be
on display from Nov. 19 through Dec. 17, at
Indian River State College, Dixon Hendry
Campus, Building B, located at 2229 NW 9th
Ave.
The gallery features children who have
been removed from home due to abuse,
neglect or abandonment. They are "difficult
to place" children who are older (7-17 years
old), sibling groups, minority or bi-racial or


may have physical, emotional or behavioral
issues. The local Heart Gallery is displayed
in high-traffic locations across Okeechobee,
St. Lucie, Indian River and Martin counties in
an effort to raise awareness of the need for
adoptive homes in our communities.
Since it began in 2006, more than 50
children featured on the Heart Gallery of
Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast have
been adopted, including five Okeechobee
children in the past year.

FWC academy graduates new officers


Okeechobee resident one
of 15 in graduating class
"Determined" is a fitting word to describe
the most recent additions to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Division of Law Enforcement.
When the 15th FWC law enforcement
class graduated Nov. 10 at the Florida Pub-
lic Safety Institute in Tallahassee in front of
friends, family and fellow law enforcement
officials, they pledged their efforts to the
state of Florida and to protecting its unique
and valuable natural resources.
Jason Lipford of Okeechobee was among
the graduates.
Officer David O'Regan, the speaker for
Class 15, spoke of the hard work the class
went through and how they had become a
family during their training.
Although all FWC officers can be con-
sidered determined individuals, dedicated
to protecting Florida's people and natural
resources, these individuals went through a
few different steps to reach their goals and
get to this point. Most FWC officers are hired
upon selection and then paid a salary during
a six-month academy. These officers were
not.
The beginning part of each FWC acad-
emy teaches recruits basic law enforcement
details and skills. The final eight weeks of
each academy session constitute the "break-
out" session; this is when recruits learn the
unique information and skills needed to be
an FWC officer.
All of Wednesday's graduates were law
enforcement certified prior to being hired on
for FWC's "breakout" session. Each had at-


tended a basic recruit academy elsewhere;
most even paid their own way to get certi-
fied. Together, they represent 75 years of
combined law enforcement and corrections
experience.
"This is the first time FWC has run a
'breakout' class made up entirely of fully cer-
tified individuals," said Maj. Mark Warren,
head of the FWC's Training Section. "We
are very pleased with the dedication and
enthusiasm that these graduates are already
displaying for the job."
Out of 786 applicants, only 20 were se-
lected to begin the class, and just 15 made
it through the intensive training and physical
demands to graduate and become the new-
est FWC officers. The training included ac-
curacy with firearms, wildlife identification,
vessel operation, defensive tactics, all-terrain
vehicle operation, BUI/DUI detection and a
focus on state and federal wildlife and fisher-
ies laws.
One of the graduates was previously an
FWC reserve officer, and five have applied
more than once to the FWC. They range in
age from 22 to 54.
As FWC officers, they will patrol Florida's
lands, covering almost 54,000 square miles,
as well as nearly 2,300 miles of tidal shore-
line and 3 million square miles of freshwater
lakes. These officers will be protecting the
"Fishing Capital of the World" and one of the
largest public hunting systems in the coun-
try. In addition to enforcing all state laws,
FWC officers are authorized to enforce fed-
eral fisheries and wildlife laws.

OHS varsity boys basketball team is rebuilding


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
With just one returned on the varsity boys
basketball squad this year one might look
at the Brahmans as a team in a rebuilding
mode.
If you look again you see a team with a lot
of young talent and hunger as players vie for
as many as 11 open positions on the varsity
squad.
Competition and hard work is what Coach
Bryan Van Camp wants to see this year. "We
are young and definitely rebuilding. It's a
challenge but it's exciting at the same time.
My job this year is to fine tune the talent. We
have some things to look forward to."
Van Camp's job is a little tougher this year
as many as six varsity players are still playing
football. Those players will miss at least the
preseason games that are played this week.
He said while the loss of the football play-
ers hurts those players preparation for the
season, it also gives the younger players a
chance to impress.
"We want to find players that are com-
mitted to running our system and learning.
We are introducing the young players to


Lady Brahmans

beat South Fork

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School's girls bas-
ketball team was without their top gun for
their season opener Wednesday at South
Fork but it really didn't matter as every-
one in the team improved their games
and that team work fueled Okeechobee
to victory, 60-46.
Janet Smith had 23 points and Miran-
da Serrano had 18 points and nine re-
bounds to lead Okeechobee. Ami Ed-
wards grabbed 11 rebounds and Jaryaca
Baker had a solid floor game with seven
points, five rebounds, four assists and
four steals.
Coach Erin Morrow said she was
thrilled with the contributions that ev-
ery player gave in this team victory, "We
came out strong and ready to play. We
really worked hard on both ends of the
floor."
Morrow continued to stress defensive
pressure and that strategy paid off as
Okeechobee got a number of transition
baskets. "I think all of the girls played
their hearts out tonight and that is how
we have to play if we are to be success-
ful."
Top scorer Essence Williams was un-
able to play due to an ankle injury.
The girls opened their home schedule
on Thursday night when they hosted Mar-
tin County. They also host John Carroll on
Friday, Nov. 19. Tip off time is 6:30 p.m.


something new. I'm watching to see who ad-
justs quickly and applies the things that they
learn,' he added.
No one has been promised anything on
this year's team. The only guarantee for
varsity is Deforest Shanks, who will start at
point guard. Van Camp said the age and the
grade of a player will not play a factor in who
makes the varsity team. He said he wants his
team to compete as hard as they can every
night regardless of who is on the floor.
The District figures to be tough again with
Fort Pierce Central and Jensen Beach expect-
ed to be the top contenders. Suncoast also
returns a veteran team this year.
Other players to watch on the Brahmans
this year include Tommy Jackson, back af-
ter a year off due to knee surgery, and Tim


Frank and Erick McQueen.
Senior Mike Hernandez, a transfer from
Fort Pierce Central, could also be a surprise.
Offense will be the biggest challenge for
the team this year particularly the half court
offense and jump shots. Van Camp admits
that most of the team's offense will have to
come from their transition game and their
defense.
"We are faster this year and overall we
may have more athleticism. Shooting will
be a struggle. It we get bogged down in the
half court we will have some challenges," he
added.
Van Camp said he will play the best play-
ers who work the hardest and play within the
system, "The attitude will be there. If it's not,
we may go through several roster changes

aged six yards per carry. Cody Hartwell had
584 yards rushing and six touchdowns.
Passing is not their strongest suit as Daniel
May completed 58 passes for 836 yards and
four touchdowns this year. He has also been
intercepted eight times.
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson said this
game will determine how tough Okeechobee
is. He said his team is playing their best foot-
ball of the year and should go into the game
with nothing to lose.
"It just comes down to execution. They
are a physical football team. They don't hurt
themselves, and they are very aggressive.
They are always trying to score points," he
said.
Jackson said Donaldson has been very im-


pressive both in his speed
and his strength. He said
he'll be a huge challenge
for the Brahman defense.
"We will continue to do
what we do well. We must

good week of practice and have shown a lot

"I told them don't be happy just to be in
the playoffs. Play to your potential. Keep fight-
ing out there and don't give up," he added.
Jackson praised many of his players for
their improvements this year. Elijahwon Wil-
liams won the coaches praise for his play at

He had two tackles behind the line of scrim-
mage.
He said the message will be let's play an-

Okeechobee runner is ready for the state finals


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School's Mauro
Dominguez finished 11th at the Region 3
Class 4A cross country race Nov. 13 to qual-
ify as an individual for the state champion-
ships this Saturday in Dade City.
Dominguez appeared at the race last year
when the entire boys cross country team
qualified. This year he will appear alone.
"I feel pretty good about it. I would have
liked to have had my team make it but it's


alright. At least I get to keep the Okeecho-
bee tradition of going onto the state race,"
he said.
Dominguez said the experience he gained
in last year's race should assist him Saturday.
He said his goal is to finish the race in 16:30
or less. If he can attain that time he can be
listed as a national quality runner.
"Itwill be a tough race but I'm waiting for
it and I'm so excited," he added.
Dominguez also knows college coaches
will be watching the race and he might be


able to attract some attention for scholar-
ships.
Dominguez had made huge strides this
year as a runner. His best time this year is
16:37. In last week's regional race he record-
ed a time of 16:42, over 40 seconds faster
than the last time he had ran that course at
South Fork High School.
"I was very happy with that time. I'm im-
proving a lot," he noted.
Dominguez has improved through hard
work and dedication. He also praised his
fellow cross country teammates who are


very close and push each other to greater
heights. He also praised Coach Julie Bohan-
non for her guidance and her strong hand
that emphasized put in the miles.
"I have just been more dedicated to run-
ning. I just listen to my coach this year. Last
year I kind of slacked off. This year I picked
it up. I am team Captain and I tried to set a
good example for the younger runners," he
said.
Dominguez said he started cross country
as a way to get in better shape for soccer sea-
son. After he ran a few races and improved,
he began to love the sport. He regrets that
he only ran for two years as he realizes he
might have been a lot better had he run for
four years.
"When I became one of the top runners,
that made me more motivated. It is now one
of my favorite sports," he added.
Dominguez said he is excited to compete
against the top runner in the state Jeremy
Clark in Saturday's race in Pasco County.
"I'll be ready. It'll be nice to race against
him and meet new friends and runners," he
said.

Senior looks


forward to


basketball


season
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School senior Mike
Hernandez is the traditional walk on. He's
the guy that comes out of nowhere and pro-
vides a spark and
an unexpected
boost to a pro-
gram.
Coach Bryan
Van Camp said
Hernandez has
been a pleasant
surprise in pre-
season practices.
Hernandez is in
the mix for play-
ing time at the
guard position Mike Hernandez
this year as his
leadership skills, knowledge of the game,
and outside shooting could be an asset to
the team.
"I look forward to playing and having a
good year in my last year of high school. I
hope we do well. The practices have been
good and the players are in great condition.
I look forward to playing the games," he
added.
Hernandez grew up in Miami and moved
to Okeechobee in 2000. He played basketball
for Osceola Middle School for a few years
before he moved to Fort Pierce Westwood
after the eighth grade. Although Hernandez
hasn't played high school ball, he said he
loves the game, and has worked in recre-
ational and pickup games at the Okeecho-
bee Sports Complex.
"The players at the complex told me to
come out and tryout. I enjoy the game,"
he added. Hernandez said he is impressed
with the talent level on the team and really
gets along well with his teammates. He also
plans to serve as a role model and team
leader where he can.
"As seniors you have to work with the
underclassmen and help them. They work
hard. My older cousins helped me and I
learned a lot from them. Seniors must play
the role of leader and give the younger guys
tips and instruction," he added.
Hernandez has no visions of grandeur as
far as playing time. He knows a lot of players
will want to get minutes at the guard posi-
tion this year. "It is not like the game is any-
thing new to me. The only thing new for me
is now I'm playing for the high school."

School board expels 12 students


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Twelve Okeechobee High School stu-
dents were expelled for the remainder of the
2010-2011 school year as part of the ongo-
ing drug investigation at the school which
resulted in numerous arrests of students.
The expulsions came after a vote of the
Okeechobee County School Board Tuesday
night.
The students, six of them 10th graders,
were expelled for misconduct and violation
of the Code of Student Conduct for pos-
sessing any illegal substance controlled by
Florida Statutes. There were also four 11th
graders and two 12th graders expelled. Two
of the cases involved prescription pills.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patricia
Cooper said it was very sad to see this come
about. "The school system is a small repre-
sentation of the society. We are dealing with
an epidemic in our society and our schools
reflect that," she said.
Joni Ard told the School Board that in
many of these cases the board has urged the
parents to continue a home oriented learn-
ing curriculum for these students.
Dr. Cooper said she is still hopeful
that many of these students will be home
schooled or return to school at the end of
their expulsions.
The district plans to host a couple of anti
drug events soon. On Dec. 3, a presentation
will take place at the Okeechobee Fresh-
man Campus. Dr. Cooper said they are also
looking at programs for the high school but
warned the fight against drugs must start
earlier.
"We need to start earlier. We have many
programs, Character Counts, and other cur-
riculums in our schools. The school system
is just one piece of the fight. Parents and
churches need to be involved. We need to
gather around our children and protect them
from the dangers of drugs," she added.
Dr. Cooper said about one-third of the
students arrested are ESE students and un-
der federal law must be allowed to return to
school after a set time period. She said the
district is looking at ways to provide alterna-
tive education services for these students as
required by federal law. No final decisions
have been made.
In other business, OCEA President Candy
Walker announced that union members
will vote on the tentative contract with the
school board on Dec. 9.
The board also appointed Sharon Suits as
Interim Director of Information Technology
and named Shawna May as Coordinator of
Information Technology.
The board also adopted a proclamation
that declared Saturday, Nov. 21 as Retired
Educators Day.
Gay Carlton is President of Okeechobee
Retired Educators. She said last year they
provided over 4,000 in community service
hours to the community.
Kelly Owens was re-elected as Chairper-
son and David Williams was elected Vice
Chairman of the Board. The Board also es-
tablished their regular meeting date as the
second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at
the School Board offices.
Retired Circuit Judge Hendry gave the


oath of office to re-elected board members
Joe Arnold, Gay Carlton and David Williams.
He also gave his regular history lesson for
Okeechobee Schools.
He noted the school board has faced
some difficult times due to the economy in
the past few years. He said other years had
hardship in Okeechobee. In 1926 Okeecho-
bee reached a boom in real estate. All of a
sudden it came to a halt and the Bank of
Okeechobee in 1926 and Peoples Bank of
Okeechobee failed in 1929. No one could
pay their taxes. The School Board started to
borrow money in the 1930s and 1940s just
to make payroll. Teachers were paid when
funds were available and didn't always get
paid on time.
Judge Hendry said the community also
faced two hurricanes in 1926 that flooded
and caused extensive damage to the re-
gion. The School Board had three lakefront
schools at Eagle Bay, Upthegrove Beach and
Utopia that were destroyed and never rebuilt
after these storms. In December, 1933, the
School Board adopted a resolution that all
remaining schools, seven, would not open
after Christmas. There was no money to pay
teachers and no money to operate schools.
An emergency relief fund was provided to
keep the teachers paid and resume classes.
Another hurricane in 1933 did more damage
to Okeechobee and its schools. Basinger,
Fort Drum, Midway, and Platts Bluff schools
were all severely damaged but repairable.
Emergency relief funds repaired these
schools. The main Okeechobee elementary


"The school system is a small
representation of the society.
We are dealing with an
epidemic in our society and our
schools reflect that."
Dr. Patricia Cooper, Superintendent
of Okeechobee County Schools
school, now the main school board office
building, also was damaged and experts said
it should be closed down. The school was
vacated for one year. The school reopened
in October, 1934 through relief funds and a
replacement auditorium was also built with
left over funds. It was a civil works construc-
tion project which cost $25,000.
Judge Hendry said things began to im-
prove during World War II. Otis L. Pippen,
FFA teacher, talked the School Board into
hiring FFA boys at 20 cents per hour to pick
up all the sand spurs in the main schools in
town.
Dr. Cooper said the District in their own
calculations have met class size reduction
requirements. The State Department of Edu-
cation will announce their calculations by
the end of this month.
Girl Scout Troop 60599 presented the col-
ors and led the public in the Pledge of Alle-
giance. The school board also rescheduled
their January meeting from Tuesday, Jan. 11
to Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011 at 6 p.m.

Very special guest
The students at Everglades Elementary were treated to a surprise visitor on
Wednesday, Nov. 10. The visitor was Dixie Leigh Shofner. She looks so much
like Winn Dixie from the book "Because Of Winn Dixie," she was able to help
kick off the school wide read aloud, "Because of Winn Dixie." Dixie appeared
on the morning announcements and visited many classrooms. The students
in Ms. Hunt's class were thrilled to get to spend some time with such a "fa-
mous" dog.
