OPINION


Public Forum/Speak Out


Letters 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!

Airplane security
Why are passengers scrutinized yet
packages are not? It makes me think this is
just one more "test" to see how far the peo-
ple will tolerate invasive actions/procedures
from our Government.
On NPR there was a report about the
pilots union objecting to the full body scans
due to fear of the harm all that increased ra-
diation will do to airplane pilots and crew.
A friend sent me this e-mail. I have to
say I agree with it full heartedly. A great al-
ternative to body scanners at airports. The
Israelis are developing an airport security de-
vice that eliminates the privacy concerns that
come with full-body scanners at the airports.
It's a booth you can step into that will not
X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive
device you may have on you. They see this
as a win-win for everyone, with none of the
whining about racial profiling. It also would
eliminate the costs of long and expensive
trials. Justice would be swift. Case closed!
You're in the airport terminal and you hear
a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an
announcement comes over the PA system:
"Attention standby passengers -we now
have a seat available on flight number
Shalom."
I think if I was planning to fly some-
where, I'd go without a bath for about three
days, eat some raw onions, garlic, and some
Limburger cheese, and see how many TSA
agents would line up to gimme a grope.

Ambulance
Emergency vehicles were lost again
in Okeechobee Estates just now. Wouldn't
you think they would familiarize themselves
with the area after not being able to find an
address time and time again? I hope they lo-
cated the poor soul in need of help in time.
One thing everyone should do is make
sure that your house number is well marked.
You would be amazed how many homes do
not have the house number visible.


Decorations
I understand why the stores get their
Christmas stuff out so early, but why in the
world did the city put up their decorations so
far in advance? I have noticed several homes
in this county have also already decorated
for Christmas! It doesn't seem quite so spe-
cial anymore.
I lean a little that way also but my fam-
ily has "persuaded" me to enjoy Christmas
a bit longer. Maybe this year people need a
more drawn-out Christmas feeling than a
few years before. I am going to give in to it
and enjoy the looks on the children's faces
even though times are tough. The little ones
don't know it if we protect them from it. Life
will catch up with them eventually.
I'd better start early because it will
probably take me 2 weeks to get anything
up anyway.
We have this running argument every
year about a real Christmas tree and I give
in and we get one even though we have a
perfectly fine tree in a box. I must admit the
smell of a real tree is wonderful. My son's
face always lights up and, even if it is 80 de-
grees outside, we have to have egg nog to
trim the tree. It is priceless.
I love making the "magic" for my fam-
ily. If I don't do it, no one else will create it. I
like going to Cityplace too for the "snow."
I understand the beauty in all of the
decorations and seeing your children's faces
light up. But what about Thanksgiving? Is
the true beauty and meaning of Thanksgiv-
ing being taught to our children, or is it be-
ing glossed over because everyone is rush-
ing into the Christmas season?
There is not much I like about Christ-
mas at all, except for the lights. Same ole
Christmas music, same ole rush with people
spending more than they should on stuff that
their gift recipients should be picking out for
themselves. All the "have to's" associated.
No decent TV until after New Years.

Funniest t-shirt or bumper
sticker you have seen lately
"Is it 2012 yet?"
"Jesus loves you. Everyone else thinks
you are a jerk."
"A fool and his money are ... a girl's best
friend."
"Where's Clyde?"
"Don't drink and park. Accidents cause
people."
"Trust in Allah, but tie up your camel."

Toastmaster Club says thanks
to SFWMD for meeting space
Tuesday, Nov. 16, we held our regular
meeting at the SFWMD in order to free up
the meeting room at the Okeechobee Li-
brary to use for their annual fund raiser. SF-
WMD was nice enough to allow us to use
their meeting room so that we could hold
our normal meeting. The meeting was a
great success. Two prepared speeches were
given at the meeting. One by Lee Allen and
another by Carole Witt. Allison Murphy was
our Toastmaster of Ceremonies for the eve-
ning and did a wonderful job in making sure
the meeting followed the agenda. One of the
things that Toastmaster teaches is to be able
to begin and end on time. That is very im-
portant to helping with time management.
Allison did great as our host and leader for
the evening. Brian Cartland conducted the
table topics for the evening. He selected Sid
Estrada, Venice Witt and guest Marilu Guti-
errez to participate this week. Table topics
are a tool that is used to teach members to
give an impromptu speech, usually in a 2-3
minute time limit. This is just one of the fun
parts of a Toastmaster meeting. First, you sit
there hoping you are not picked to speak.
Also the questions vary from serious to fun.
A person never knows what their question
will be until they are called up and given
the question right then. Once a person gets
through their first impromptu question, they
will become excited to see what the next
meeting holds for the table topics session
and they like to participate because not only
is a person building their skill of thinking
on their feet they are also watching others
answer questions with a response that may
be totally different from what they are think-
ing. Learning a skill and improving on sev-
eral areas is what Toastmaster's Clubs are
about. They are a lot of fun and probably the
most inexpensive way to learn how to speak
in front of small groups or large groups, to
communicate with others and to help with
time management skills. We did have a
guest visit us, Marilu Gutierrez. She was a
great sport and participated in the table top-
ics portion of our meeting. She handled her
question quite professionally. We think she
has had some practice at this because she
did an outstanding job. All of us enjoyed
her speech and the passion and excitement
she had when giving it. Thank you Marilu,


Additional copies of the newspaper are available for
50 cents Wednesday and Friday and 75 cents for
Sunday at the office. Home delivery subscriptions
are available at $18.00 for three months.

THEATRE
Continued From Page 1
The play centers on a man who idolizes
Humphrey Bogart so much that he has his
features altered to look like him, then opens
up a detective agency. What happens next
involves beautiful women, precious jewels,
and murder.
The story, by Andrew J. Fenady, was so
well received that it has been given several
treatments. It began as a best-selling novel,
and was then brought to the screen, starring
Bogart look-alike, Robert Sacchi. It was then
adapted for the theatre, and finally staged as
a live radio play, as it is to be presented by
the OCT.
The cast of eleven performers will play a
total of 25 characters. They are John Garner,


Mike Zierden, Matt Garner, Billy McCullers,
Harry Moldenhauer, Mike White, Bob Stein-
er, Genna Lute, Jacque Hayes, Joyce Taylor
and Laurie Garner. The on-stage sound ef-
fects men who will help create the "theatre
of the mind" are Kevin Lute and Wesley
Beam.
The theatre's 32nd season will conclude
in March with the comedy, "Dixie Swim
Club."
The Okeechobee Community Theatre is
an all-volunteer organization of local resi-
dents who present Broadway-style come-
dies, dramas and musicals. For information
on the theatre and its activities, call Ron or
Jacque Hayes at 863-763-1307, or visit the

the first time on a Sunday. I think going for-
ward, as people become more familiar with
the location and the weekend format, its
success will increase."
Working the event was the Roundup
Committee and more than 30 volunteers
in addition to students from the OHS Beta
Club, the JROTC, the HOSA group, the Boy
Scouts and many others. Planning began
in July with donations of prizes, food and
monetary support coming in since Au-
gust. Cooperation on publicity was given
by the Okeechobee News, the Pennysaver,
Okeechobee the Magazine and WOKC. The
Okeechobee School System's donation of
its facilities helped guarantee a successful
drive.
While other communities have drives
with higher numbers of donors, Okeecho-
bee's drive is recognized by Florida's Blood
Centers as the largest Independent Blood
Drive in Florida. It has no corporate spon-
sorship and a smaller population base from
which to draw. Much credit is given to "FBC's
best" Donor Coordinator, Russ Colwell, who


"Okeechobee should be very
proud of its community spirit
and its willingness to support
worthy causes."
Raye Deusinger

has supported and worked the drive for the
past three years.
Ernest Blair and Cecelia Rodriguez, two
blood recipients whose stories were chron-
icled in the Okeechobee News, came and
donated blood. Many donors recounted sto-
ries of others saved by blood donations.
Mike Pratt, CEO of Florida's Blood Cen-
ters, visited Okeechobee from Orlando just
to see the phenomenon of the Blood Round-
up. He said he is so impressed with what
Okeechobee does and had to come see it
for himself. He said there is no other drive
like it in Florida.
"Okeechobee should be very proud
of its community spirit and its willingness
to support worthy causes," said Raye De-
usinger, drive chairman. "Truly, this drive is
unique and it is the people and businesses
of Okeechobee that make it so. Thank you,
Okeechobee."

Cross dresser accused of beating man with a beer bottle


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A man described by police as a cross
dresser has been arrested in connection with
the beating of another man on Aug. 21.
Ronaldo Trinidad Ro-
driguez, 36, Okeechobee,
was arrested on a warrant
Friday, Nov. 19, charging
him with the felony of ag-
gravated battery. He had
been arrested earlier on a
misdemeanor charge of re-
sisting a law enforcement
officer without violence in Ronaldo
connection with the case. Rodriguez
He is being held in the
Okeechobee County Jail under a total bond
of $37,500.
According to Detective Bill Saum of the
Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD)
around 3:22 a.m. on Aug. 21 Rodriguez re-
portedly forced the victim into his own van,
which was parked outside the El Rojo Bar
on S.W Second St. Once they were in the
van, Rodriguez reportedly demanded mon-


ey from the victim, stated the detective.
When Rodriguez learned the victim had
no money, he reportedly began to beat the
victim with a beer bottle, stated the detec-
tive.
The victim was able to get away by arm-
ing himself with a screwdriver. He then ran
to the police department to report the inci-
dent.
Detective Saum stated that he went to the
bar where he found a Hispanic cross dresser
who was wearing hosiery, a gold skirt, a
gold shirt, a black sweater and had long dark
hair. The man reportedly told the detective
his name was Lorena Valleres.
According to the detective, he then pho-
tographed the man and then went back to
interview the victim while another OCPD of-
ficer stayed with Valleres. The victim identi-
fied the person in the photo as the person
who had beaten him, added the detective.
But Valleres managed to sneak away from
the officer and could not be found.
However, on Oct. 23 the victim called
the OCPD around 12:23 a.m. and said his
attacker was now in a bar on S.R. 70 W


Man charged in store burglaries


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man has been arrested
in connection with break-ins at three differ-
ent local businesses in which only a small
amount of cash and some cigarettes were
reportedly taken.
Earl Douglas Wadlington III, 19, S.W
67th Drive, was arrested Friday, Nov. 19,
on felony charges of burglary of a structure
(three counts) and felony criminal mischief
(one count). He was also arrested on misde-
meanor charges of petit theft and criminal
mischief (two counts).
Wadlington is being held in the Okeecho-
bee County Jail under a total bond of
$23,000.
According to an arrest report by Detective
William Suggs of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) Wadlington is ac-
cused of breaking into Publix Supermarket
and Advance America Cash Advance, both


located on U.S. 441 S. on
Friday, Nov. 12, shortly af-
ter 2 a.m. Then, around
2:57 a.m., he reportedly
/later broke into Bill's Mini
Mart on S.R. 70 E., added
the detective.
The detective's report
Earl Douglas stated that surveillance
Wadlington III video at the three busi-
nesses show Wadlington
and an unidentified man entering the busi-
nesses.
Detective Suggs said the men entered
Publix and Advance America but left empty
handed. He went on to state that some ciga-
rettes and cash were apparently taken from
the convenience store.
Surveillance video showed the men
gaining entry into the businesses by using
concrete blocks to break out windows, the
report stated. Detective Suggs said the inves-
tigation is continuing.


When OCPD Sergeant Russell Cale arrived,
he found the victim's alleged attacker who
now identified himself as Fernando Rodri-
guez Barrios.
Detective Saum said when Valleres/Bar-
rios was fingerprinted he learned the man's


true identity was Ronaldo Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has been held in the county
jail on a violation of probation charge until
Assistant State Attorney Jeff Davis issued the
arrest warrant charging him with aggravated
battery.

Bar patron accused of hitting deputy


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A man was confined in the county jail af-
ter he reportedly struck a deputy in the face
after he was asked to leave a local bar.
Randal Wood, 27, N.W 28th Ave.,
Okeechobee, was arrested Sunday, Nov.
21, on felony charges of battery on a law
enforcement officer and resisting a law en-
forcement officer with violence. He was also
charged with the misdemeanor of disorderly
conduct.
Wood is being held in the Okeechobee
County Jail under a bond of $5,500.
An arrest report by Deputy Steven McKin-
ley of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of-
fice (OCSO) an employee of Shenanigan's,
N.W 32nd Drive, asked to have Wood re-


moved because he was
cursing her and causing
problems. When the dep-
uty asked Wood to step
outside so they could talk,
the man reportedly ignored
him.
Deputy McKinley asked
Randall the man to come outside
Wood a second time and Wood
got up and started to walk
outside with him.
According to the report, before they got
outside Wood "... became noncompliant..."
and as Deputy Yamil Astacio put his hand on
the man's left shoulder Wood tried to hit the
deputy in the face. As Wood swung at the
deputy, a cup filled with ice and some sort
of beverage hit the deputy, continued the


report.
At this point, Deputy Astacio grabbed
Wood and the two men went to the floor
with Wood punching the deputy in the face,
stated Deputy McKinley. Deputy Astacio hit
Wood twice in the face, the report added.
While Deputy Astacio was trying to gain
control of the man's hands, Deputy McKin-
ley pulled his taser and delivered a 5-second
drive stun to Wood's groin. However, Wood
reportedly continued to fight with the dep-
uty. Deputy McKinley stated that he then
applied the taser to Wood's left hip, and he
stopped fighting.
The OCSO report goes on to state that
Deputy Astacio injured his right hand and
had a red mark on his left cheek.
Wood has also been trespassed from the
night spot, Deputy McKinley added.

of $13 each. At 11:30 a.m.
Enrique the couple met with the
Paredes 'dealer' and gave the infor-
mant $195 in exchange for
the pills, continued the report.
Once the deal was completed, GCSO de-
tectives moved in and arrested the couple.


The money and the pills
were recovered, stated the
arrest report.
According to a detective
in the GCSO narcotics divi-
sion, the couple said they
were buying the pills for
someone else.
Dorothy If anyone has any con-
Paredes fidential information con-
cerning the use or sale of
prescription pills or any illegal drugs, they
are asked to contact GCSO Detective Ser-
geant Steve Harris at 863-946-1600.

The two staff members then took the man
down and held him until Deputy Hurst and
fellow OCSO Deputy John Fisher arrived. Ac-
cording to the report, the two men told the
deputies "... they were in fear of being shot
and the only thing they could do was grab
Draughon and attempt to gain control."
Deputy Hurst said his fellow deputy found
a .22 caliber pistol in Draughon's pocket. The
pistol was seized and placed into evidence,
added Deputy Hurst.

Pilgrim lady visits North Elementary
Betty Chandler Williamson was invited to read to two classes in the school,
Nov. 9. She chooses to dress as a Pilgrim lady and read two Thanksgiving
books to the students of Mrs. Van Demon and Ms. Whitlock. The pupils were
attentive and asked questions. After those two class readings were com-
pleted, Miz Betty stopped by her granddaughters' class, Megan Williamson,
to have a photograph taken. She has been a reader for various classes for
quite some time. She enjoys dressing in the Pilgrim costume and reading to
school age children as well as other kinds of books. She is a ninth genera-
tion's descendant from two or more passengers on the Mayflower in 1620.

Catrons continue their

Thanksgiving tradition


Couple provides traditional
Thanksgiving meal for
those who have no one else
with whom to celebrate
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
One of the newer Thanksgiving traditions
in Okeechobee seeks to make sure no one
dines alone on the festive holiday.
For the fourth year, Jim Catron and his
wife, Pam, will be providing a Thanksgiving
meal for those who will not have anyone to
celebrate the holiday with. While it is pri-
marily for members of First Baptist Church,
Mr. Catron also invites those he knows will
be alone on Thanksgiving.
"I just knew there were seniors in the


church with no where to go for Thanksgiv-
ing," said Mr. Catron of the reason for the
inaugural Thanksgiving celebration.
For the first celebration in 2007 there
were 18 to 20 people. This year he is expect-
ing about 45. In the past, the Catrons did all
the cooking. This year they will be assisted
by Eddie and Teresa Woodham. At first they
provided all the food. However, Mr. Catron
said that this year almost all of the food is
donated.
The people who attend have their picture
taken. The picture is mounted on a card
decorated with the celebration's theme. The
day's menu is printed on the back with a
thank you for attending.
The theme for this year's celebration is
"Thanksgivings of Yesteryears."

Reflections from the pulpit


'She did what she could'

By Wendy Schaffer
Pastoral Counselor, The Pregnancy Center
of Okeechobee
When last I wrote, we discussed that the
woman in Bethany, described in Mark 14:3-9,
"lived loved." She knew she was loved by Je-
sus and loved Him back. She anointed the
head of Jesus with very expensive perfumed
ointment, because of her love for her Lord
and Savior.
"Some of those present were saying in-
dignantly to one another, 'Why this waste of
perfume? It could have been sold for more
than a year's wages and the money given
to the poor.' And they rebuked her harshly.
'Leave her alone,' said Jesus. 'Why are you
bothering her? She has done a beautiful
thing for me...She did what she could.'"
Remember the phrase "She did what she
could" as you enter the holiday season of
Thanksgiving and Christmas. Do not stress
yourselves out. You are not going to please


everyone no matter how hard you try, and
no matter how much you give. Do what
you can. The season is about giving in love.
Scripture says "Each man (and woman)
should give what he has decided in his heart
to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver." (II Corinthi-
ans 9:7) You can only be a cheerful giver if
you want to give, if you are giving what you
want to give, if you are within an affordable
budget, and if you are giving the amount of
time and energy you have to give.
The woman in Bethany was not pres-
sured into giving. She gave what, when and
how she was led to give. She gave from her
heart. She did not give regard to other peo-
ple's opinions. Scripture does not say if any
of her family was present. (I realize it may
have been harder to face family than facing
the Pharisees.) The point I am making is to
enjoy the time with your loved ones, and to
enjoy giving. Cherish and appreciate that
you have family and loved ones to celebrate
with.


I pray you remember Christ's love for
you, and His sacrifice for you, during this
season. He is the reason we celebrate. To
freely worship Christ was why the Pilgrims
came to America. Christ's love that was
extended to the Pilgrims enabled them to
reach out with love to their new neighbors.
God's love enabled the native people to
reach out to them. Jesus taught us in Mat-
thew 22:37-39, the two greatest command-
ments are: "to love the Lord your God" and
"to love your neighbor as yourself." Through
Christmas and Thanksgiving, we can truly
live out these two greatest commandments
by giving praise to our Lord's birth, by giving
to others, and by loving our Lord God, our
family and neighbors.
Elisa Morgan writes about the woman in
Bethany in "She Did What She Could. "She
recognized the juncture before her, (and)
"chose her path." "She acted with what she
had. She acted where she was. She acted
when it mattered." She gave her love. "She
did what she could."

County receives additional revenue sources


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It seems Christmas came early for
Okeechobee County Commissioners who
spent several months trying to come up with
a balanced budget with shrinking financial
resources. First, commissioners were trying
to make do with insufficient funds. Now they
have additional, unexpected funds to bud-
get.
At their meeting on Thursday, Nov. 18
commissioners were presented with reve-
nue from two different sources, Waste Man-
agement (WM) and the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office.
The board agreed to accept $1.5 million
dollars from Waste Management (WM) in
lieu of 100 acres of land that their contact with
WM called for WM to donate to the county.
Commissioners will have to decide what to
do with that money. They have several op-
tions. Since this is a one time donation, stan-
dard accounting practices would be to not
apply the money to operating expenses since
operating expenses are recurring.
While the WM deal had been in the works
for several months, commissioners also re-
ceived a sum of money from an unexpected
source and they had no trouble deciding
what to do with those funds.
The sheriff's office returned to the county
$1,852,921.38. The proper accounting term
for this money is access fees. While some of
this money did come from fees paid to the
sheriff's office, the majority of it came from
unspent funds that had been budgeted to the
sheriff's office. Sheriff Paul May said some of
his cost cutting measures were more effec-
tive that he thought at first.
From the law enforcement side of the
sheriff's budget, he only spent 93.71 percent
of the money budgeted to personal services,
80.20 percent of operating expenses and
96.34 percent of the money budgeted for
capital outlay. Under the corrections side of
the sheriff's budget, a little over 90 percent
of the money allocated for personal ser-
vices was spent. Of the operating expenses
budgeted for corrections, only 76.65 per-
cent were spent and only 95.7 percent of
the funds earmarked for capital outlay were
spent. Turning to court security, the third
area under the sheriff's responsibility, 84.71
percent of the money budgeted for personal
services was spent. Only 70.83 percent of
operating expenses were spent and 95.24 of
capital outlay funds were spent.
All totalled just under 90 percent of the
money budgeted for the sheriff's office was
spent, leaving a savings of a little over 10 per-
cent.
Around July 15, the sheriff was predict-
ing he would return $1 million to the county.
After Sept. 30, when the books were closed
for fiscal year 2009/10, the sheriff was able
to return $1,852,821.38 to the county. Of that
amount, $1,584,500 was used to fund the
sheriff's office at the level he requested.
The remainder, $268,421 was appor-
tioned out to the constitutional officers using
the same apportionment method that was
used in balancing the budget. The sheriff's
portion, 55.44 percent went into county
reserves. Then 31.99 percent went to the
county commission. The clerk of the court
received 4.32 percent. The property apprais-


er's share was 5.16 percent. The tax collector
got 1.61 percent and the supervisor of elec-
tions received 1.48 percent.
Commissioners voted to use their share of
the money to give back the three percent they
had cut from employees' salaries to help bal-
ance the budget. The commissioners' share
is enough to fund the pay adjustment for six
months or from Oct. 1 to March 31. In March
the pay situation will be revisited in the light
of finances at that time. The seven furlough
days approved earlier will remain in place.


Clerk of the Court Sharon Robertson, said
that in light of the uncertain economic situa-
tion, she was going to hold on to her unex-
pected funds. PropertyAppraiser Bill Sherman
said he might buy a computer with his share
of the money. Tax Collector Celeste Watford
said her budget has to be approved by the
Florida Department of Revenue (DOR). She
was not sure if DOR would allow the budget
amendment. The tax collector thought she
might try to stay within her original budget.
Supervisor of Elections Gwen Chandler said
she might buy some equipment.

Morrow said her young team needs to
have more leadership on the floor and must
play more as a team, especially when things
go badly.
"We need to improve in the area of men-
tal toughness and being able to fight back
after falling behind. Leadership and experi-
ence is something we need to work on," she
added.
Miranda Serrano had nine points, while
Jaryaca Baker added five points for Okeecho-

bee High School. Each swimmer received
letters and certificates and even an award
from their team captains and leaders.
Coach Brian Turner said he was very
pleased with the work swimmers put in this
year. They spend a month or more getting
up at 5 in the morning to practice. He said
a lot of parents thought he was nuts when
he started this work out regiment, but he
proved that these routines pay off.
The girls set two records this year with
Alex Ming, Jaiden Barnhart, Celena Letcher
and Adriana Mitchell breaking the record in
the 400 at the regional meet.
"I was real pleased to see them go out on
top like that. There is a super group of senior
girls leaving but I still feel we can finish .500
or better next year and that is the ultimate
goal," he added.
Celena Letcher was named the Most
Valuable Swimmer Award for the Lady
Brahmans. She was praised for her leader-
ship skills by teammates. She said winning
the award was really quite indescribable.
"Swimming has done so much for me,"
she said. "I can't be thankful enough for it.
Swimming isn't something you can explain.
Its drive and its desire, its going for it and its
feeling like you accomplished something."
Savannah Whitlock won the Brahman
Award for the Lady Brahmans. She said she
was surprised because she normally doesn't


be bright days ahead for the boy's team.
"Coach supported us and pushed us a lot
this year. I think we'll be on the same page
next year. Nobody is leaving so we should
come back strong and ready to work," he
said.
Derrick Burrotto took home the Brahman
Award. He said he tries to be a good role
model and was very glad that he received
the award.
"I feel we are a family. We look after each
other and comfort each other. I think it'll be
interesting next year. I think I'll be prepared,"
he said.
Coach Turner said he felt the boys squad
would continue to improve next year. He
said once a team starts to win, it gets easi-
er because swimmers are more consistent
than other athletes.
He said the girl's team went from having
nothing to have several girls who very nearly
earned state final appearances this year.
"These kids work hard. I'm very proud of
the way the season turned out. It was very
special to see these kids get to where they
were going," he added.
Turner said the swim teams left the best
for last as 86 percent of the swimmers re-
ceived personal best times at the district and
or regional swim meets.


OHS girls basketball


team beats John Carroll


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School's girls basket
ball team rebounded from a lackluster loss
in their home opener with an impressive
60-38 victory over the Lady Rams of John
Carroll at the Brahman gymnasium Friday
night.
Essence Williams had 14 points and Ja-
net Smith added 13 points for the lady Brah-
mans, (2-1).
Okeechobee played very well on the
defensive end of the floor as they held the
Rams to just two points in the first quarter
and just 10 points in the first half.
"I was very impressed with the defensive


intensity tonight," Brahman Coach Erin Mor-
row said, "We came out very strong unlike
Thursday when we were lackadaisical."
Ami Edwards had eight points and six
rebounds for Okeechobee. Jaryaca Baker
had four assists and six rebounds. Miranda
Serrano had six rebounds and eight blocked
shots.
Coach Morrow said the girls really worked
hard on the defensive end and shut down
the Rams and their half court offense.
"I was very pleased with the girl's effort.
If we play that hard on defense we can be a
legitimate contender this year," she added.
Hunter Sullivan led John Carroll with 12
points.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO DESIGNATE AN EXEMPTED AQUIFER
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice that an Intent to
Designate an Exempted Aquifer (OGC File No. 09-2863) has been developed
for the reasons stated below.
The applicant, the South Florida Water Management District, 3301 Gun Club
Road, West Palm Beach, Florida 33406, applied on May 28, 2009, to the De-
partment for an exempted aquifer for the Class V aquifer storage and recov-
ery (ASR) system located at the L-63 Canal (Taylor Creek), approximately
two miles southeast of the town of Okeechobee and at the intersection of
State Road 710 and the L-63 Canal, Okeechobee County, Florida. The sys
tem is designed and constructed to capture water from Taylor Creek and in-
jectt into the receiving zone of the upper Floridan aquifer. Upon recovery
from the aquifer, the withdrawn water will be aerated and returned to Tay
lor Creek to supplement the seasonal water demand in Lake Okeechobee
and coastal estuaries.
The proposal would designate as a limited aquifer exempbon a porbon of
the upper Floridan aquifer This is in conjunction with the South Florida
Water Management District ASR facility construction and tesbng permit ap-
plicabon no. 0198641-007-UC received on February 23, 2007. If the pro-
posed aquifer exemption is granted, the ASR project will be allowed to store
water from the L-63 Canal in the subsurface that exceeds the primary drink-
ing water standard for total coliform bacteria for a period of ive years. All
other primary drinking water standards will be required to be met prior to
injection into the ASR well. The part of the Floridan aquifer proposed for
exempbon is located from 1260 feet below land surface (bls) to the base of
the underground source of drinking water (USDW) which is located at a
depth of approximately 1700 feet bls. The proposed exemption extends
from the ASR well for a radial distance of one-half mile (2640 feet). One
on-site monitor well shall monitor ground water quality in the storage aqui-
fer, and two on-site wells shall monitor overlying aquifers. An additional
off-site storage zone monitor well shall be constructed to monitor ground
water quality near the edge of the exempted aquifer Water quality of in-
jected and recovered water shall also be monitored.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's In-
tent to Designate an Exempted Aquifer may pebtion for an administrabve
proceeding (hearing) in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES

ceived) within 21 days of publicabon of the Notice in the Department's Of-
fice of General Counsel, MS 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. The failure of any person to file a petition
within the appropriate bme period shall constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceed-
ing and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a pro
ceeding initiated by another party) will only be at the discrebon of the
presiding officer upon the fling of a motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.
The Petition shall contain the following information:
a. The name, address, and telephone number of each petiboner, the ap
plicant's name and address, the Department File Number and the county
in which the project is proposed;
b. A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the

g. A statement of the relief sought by petiboner, stabng precisely the ac-
on petiboner wants the Department to take with respect to the Depart-
ment's action or proposed action.
If a petition is filed, the administrative hearing process is designed to for-
mulate agency action. Accordingly, the Department's final action may be
different from the posibon taken by it in this intent. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any decision of the Department with re-
gard to the application have the right to petition to become a party o the

Refund checks waiting for 11,278 Florida residents


The Internal Revenue Service is looking
for 11,278 Florida taxpayers who are due re-
fund checks worth $19,701,229. The checks
were returned to the IRS due to mailing ad-
dress errors.
"In Florida, the average undelivered re-
fund is $1,747," said Mike Dobzinski, IRS
spokesman for Florida. "Last year, the aver-
age was $1,538. We'd like to get this money
back to taxpayers as quickly as possible. All
we need is an updated address and we can
reissue the check."
Nationwide, 111,893 refunds totaling
$164.6 million were returned to the IRS.
Undelivered refund checks average $1,471
this year, compared to $1,148 last year. Most
checks are for the 2009 tax year.
The average dollar amount for returned
refunds increased this year, possibly due to
recent changes in tax law which introduced
new credits or expanded existing credits,
such as the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Taxpayers can find out if they are due
a tax refund by visiting the IRS Web site at
www.irs.gov and clicking on "Where's My

Dobzinski said taxpayers can avoid un-
delivered tax refunds by choosing to have
their refunds deposited directly into a bank
account. Direct deposit guards against un-
delivered, lost or stolen refund checks. It's
available for both paper and e-filed returns.
The IRS also encourages taxpayers to e-file
their tax returns. E-file is safe, reduces errors
and speeds up refunds.
