State agency willing to help Clark


Man with the mind of a
6-10 year old child still
faces possibility of prison

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Editor's Note: Two judges Chief Judge
Steve Levin for District 19 and Judge Steven
Leifman, special advisor on criminal justice
and mental health to the Supreme Court of
Florida were interviewed for this article.
When quoted, these judges are speaking in
general terms only and not with any specific-
ity to any one case.
If James Lee Clark is released from the
Okeechobee County Jail, a state agency has
said they will make their services available to
him.
Clark, 20, is being held in the medical unit
of the county jail for allegedly violating his
probation. If he is found guilty of violating his
probation (VOP), the mentally retarded man


could be sentenced to spend
five years in a state prison.
But if the North Carolina
native is released and choos-
es to stay in Florida, the
Agency for Persons with Dis-
abilities (APD) will be there
for him.
"Our area office is aware
James Lee of the situation and a pack-
Clark age is being developed for
Mr. Clark," said Melanie Et-
ters, communications director for APD, in a
phone interview from her Tallahassee office.
"We're working on a crisis package for him.
The law allows us to enroll people in a crisis
situation. In the meantime, if he's released we
can use general dollars for emergency situa-
tions to provide short-term behavioral services
for him."
The area APD office is located in Fort
Pierce.
Ms. Etters said an APD committee will meet
later this month and will determine if Clark
meets the requirements for the crisis package.


"This is one area of civil rights we
have gone backward on, and it
certainly speaks more about us
as a society than it does about
mental illness. We have made
mental illness a crime in this
country."
Judge Steven Leifman
If approved, long-term services will then be
provided to him. She went on to say the client
services office in the District 19 Public Defend-
ers Office has been notified that the agency is
aware of Clark's situation.
"Basically, we will try to modify and help
him understand the appropriate behavior for
his age and will work with him individually,"
said Ms. Etters.
Grounds for being enrolled in the crisis situ-
ation could be the person presents a danger to

Lake coalition seeks funding for ecology projects


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
There is strength in numbers. The Nine
County Coalition for Responsible Management
of Lake Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Caloosa-
hatchee Estuaries and Lake Worth Lagoon
subscribe to this theory. For their Friday, Dec.
10 meeting at the Okeechobee County Court-
house the group, made up of representatives
of Glades, Hendry, Highlands, Lee, Martin,
Okeechobee, Osceola, Palm Beach and St. Lu-
cie counties had invited representatives of the
other seven counties served by the South Flor-
ida Water Management District for a 16 County
Ecostsyem Restoration Summit.
Stu Applebaum of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, (COE) gave a history of the drain-
age system around Lake Okeechobee and not-
ed the change in landscape from pre-drainage
days until today.
"We have too much or too little water," Mr.
Applebaum said. "We never see average." He


"We're in a pretty serious situation with the lake at 12.69 feet. We're
predicting a pretty serious drought."
Col. Alfred Pantano, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers


said the lack of funding is hurting restoration
projects. The good news is that the Kissimmee
River restoration is in its closing stages and
should be completed by the end of 2014.
Mr. Applebaum gave an update on the Her-
bert Hoover Dike Restoration. He said high
water causes concern for potential failure and
triggers more frequent inspection of the dike.
He said there was not as much likelihood of
damage from water coming over the top of the
dike as there would be from seepage and pip-
ing under the dike. He said the dike is divided
into sections called reaches that are numbered
in order of their need for rehabilitation with
Reach 1 on the southeast end of the lake be-
ing most critical. That is where rehabilitation


work is currently gong on. Reaches 2 and 3 are
on the south and southwest end of the lake.
Okeechobee is in Reach 5.
Mr. Applebaum said the proposed fiscal
year 2011 budget contained $180 million for
South Florida restoration projects and $104.8
million for the Herbert Hoover dike. The es-
timated cost of the dike rehabilitation is $1.9
billion.
"We're in a pretty serious situation with the
lake at 12.69 feet," said Col. Alfred Pantano,
commander of the COE's Jacksonville District.
"We're predicting a pretty serious drought,"
He predicted the lake level would drop to be-
low 11 feet.

Cards in the Park
At a recent holiday outing, students from Mrs. Sickels' and Mrs. Marquis'
classes stopped by the Stroll in the Park Christmas Cards to proudly pose
in front of Seminole Elementary's delightful holiday entry. The card was cre-
ated by their very talented art teacher, Rose Waldron and the school's head
custodian, Jimmy Kemp.

Ringing the bell
Each year as part of the Bradley
family's Christmas celebration, they
would look forward to ringing the
bell for the Salvation Army. It helps
them remember that Christmas is
about family, friends and helping
others. The youngest daughter Dan-
ika Estelle Bradley, age 22 months,
helped to ring the bell on Saturday,
Dec. 4, outside the main entrance of
Wal-mart. The Salvation Army needs
volunteers to give of their time and
talents and as the picture proves no
contribution is too small.








Army Corps of Engineers continues lake releases

hatchee Estuary, measured at WP. Franklin
Lock and Dam (S-79). The Corps discon-
tinued target flows to the St. Lucie Estuary
Sept. 25.
The Corps will make this release in a
pulse-like manner to mimic basin response
to a rainfall event. Water managers expect
this to help push back saltwater intrusion,
which will have other associated benefits to
the estuary. The Corps and partner agencies
will continue to closely monitor and assess
system conditions, and may decrease releas-
es if local basin runoff contributes to flows.
On Friday, the lake stage was 12.70 feet
(NGVD) and continues to recede. The lake
is within the Operational Band of the 2008
Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule
(2008 LORS). More specifically, the lake
level is currently in the Base Flow Sub-Band
and the Corps may make releases up to 450
cfs and 200 cfs to the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie, respectively. In addition, the 2008
LORS allows these releases to be distributed
east and/or west to minimize impacts or
provide additional benefits.

Reflections from the pulpit


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!

Dr. Brown retiring
Dr. Fred Brown, who served the
Okeechobee community for 31 years, retired
from his medical practice this week. Friends
of Dr. Brown are encouraging his patients
(past or present) and their families to send
cards and letters, sharing their memories
and thanking Dr. Brown for his dedication
and service. Cards and letters may be sent in
care of the Dr. Fred Brown Children's Health
Center, 2015 Highway 441 N., Okeechobee,
Florida 34972. The staff at the center will
make sure the cards and letters are sent to
Dr. Brown's home.
Dr Brown is such a wonderful man. He
was my pediatrician and my children's. I am
sad to hear of his retiring. I know that it was
a very difficult decision for him to make. I
know he put this off for as long as he physi-
cally could. He is one of the most intelligent
men I have ever met. He is so wonderful
with all of his patients, and he adores them
all. I am so pleased that Florida Community
Health Centers dedicated their new building
to him, no one deserved that honor more
than him!

Three chambers
So now we have three chambers of
commerce and still there is no one to give
information to visitors. I hope the city man-
ages to get this straightened out somehow
and at least get someone into that building
at the main intersection to answer questions
and get the phones turned back on.

Class size limits
I wish there was a better way for the
schools to be funded, rather than taxes lev-
ied onto the value of the real estate. Ma and
dad can work all their life for a nice home,
and when their income declines in later
years, the school tax levies can be very bur-
densome. The elderly should not be forced
into a situation where they may have to sell
their home because the thirty somethings
want it all at someone else's expense.


Why do parents not pay registration
& book rental fees when signing children
up for school? This tax burden for educat-
ing our future would be much less, even if
it was $100/year for each child ... Not sure
how many children are in the Okeechobee
School system for sure, but it would make a
difference. Yes I am "30" something and no
I do not expect you or anyone else to pave
my way. I work very hard and have since
I was very young. I pay taxes just like you
and just like everyone did while you were
growing up. Like I said when I registered my
children for the 1st time in Okeechobee I
was laughed out of the office when I got my
check book out and asked what it was going
to cost. Nothing in life is "free" -- at least it
shouldn't be and if it is you may be getting
just what you paid for.
I went to school when discipline was
a very important part of the plan for the
school system and the parents. Discipline
teaches great lessons as well. It teaches that
for every action there is a reaction and the
reaction can sometimes be undesirable. If
the kids today had more discipline then the
teachers would be able to teach more and
our kids would be able to learn in a more
structured environment. You could put that
extra child or two in a class and it would not
matter because the teacher would not have
to deal with disruptions and still be able to
take care of all the children.

Christmas
Christmas was a Pagan holiday long
before anyone heard of Jesus. It is estimated
by historians that he was actually born in
September. December 25 was the feast of
the son of Isis long before Jesus. The Winter
Solstice was celebrated by the Romans long
before the birth of Jesus. So all the Christian
hoopla about Christmas is just a celebration
of the Pagans, Babelonians & Romans holi-
days.
"Christmas" is "Christ-Mas." It is the
celebration of Jesus Christ. Christmas was
NEVER a pagan holiday. The pagan celebra-
tion is the Winter Solstice. Many of the early
Christians were former pagans and they were
used to celebrating at certain times of the
year. Since they didn't know the actual birth-
day of Christ, they decided to celebrate it dur-
ing the time of year they were used to having
a party. Some cultures celebrate everyone's
birthday on the New Year, so it was not a big
deal to them that they didn't know the actual
date. But what Christians are celebrating is
the birth of Christ. The day doesn't matter.
What matters is what is in your heart.

A Child is Born

By Wendy Schaffer
Pastoral Counselor, The Pregnancy Center
of Okeechobee
"Unto us a child is born, unto us a Son
is given and His name shall be called 'God
with Us.'" (Isaiah 9:6) "For God so loved the
world that He gave His only begotten Son."
(John 3:16) Christmas celebrates the birth of
God's Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
At the time of His birth, angels celebrated.
An angel proclaimed to shepherds, "I bring
you good news that will bring great joy to
all people. The Savior...has been born today
in Bethlehem." (Luke 2:9-13) Jesus Christ
is our Savior because He came to redeem
people. (Luke 1:68) We were God's enemies
but we were reconciled to God through the
death of His Son, and having been recon-
ciled we are saved. (Romans 5:10) We are
saved through faith by confessing with our
mouths, Jesus is Lord, and believing in our
hearts that God raised Him from the dead
(Romans 10:10) "God did not send His Son
into the world to condemn the world, but to
save the world through Him." (John 3:17)
Scripture says, Jesus will deliver you from
your enemies including death. (Luke 1:71)
"Death has been swallowed up in victory"
by Jesus. (I Corinthians 15:54) Jesus, him-
self, declared, "I am He that lives, and was
dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore...
and have the keys of hell and death. (Rev-
elation 1:18) Jesus saves and delivers us by
performing the mercy promised in Scripture
(Luke 1:72) His mercy extends to those who
believe in Him. His mercy includes the re-
mission, or sending away by forgiveness, of
our sins (Acts 10:43) At our Lord's circumci-
sion and naming Simeon took "Him up in

Continued From Page 1

themselves or to others, or their caregiver is
no longer able to provide them the proper
care. People determined to be in crisis also
receive a Medicaid waiver for the services.
However, as in Clark's situation, someone in
jail cannot be enrolled in the waiver.
"We also do employment and job coach-
ing, and we have a broad range of services,"
continued Ms. Etters. "The whole point of
the waiver is to keep the individual in the
community and make them an active part of
the community."
But before any of this can happen, Clark
has to be released from jail. And at this point,
it's not clear if that is going to happen. He
will be back in court Friday, Dec. 17, when
he goes before Circuit Court Judge Robert
Belanger at his VOP arraignment.
Clark's problems with the law began after
he and his father moved to Okeechobee to
help his father's mother. Clark, who report-
edly has the mind of a child, began hanging
around areas frequented by children and
was eventually trespassed from a local day-
care center.
He was first arrested by the Okeechobee
City Police Department (OCPD) for trespass-
ing and booked into the county jail on Dec.
11, 2009. Clark then arrested on Dec. 23,
2009, by Detective M.D. Faulkner with the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
on a felony charge of attempted aggravated
kidnapping.
That charge was dropped by the state,
but a second charge of interference with
child custody against him is still in place.
That charge is also a felony.
In his statements to Detective Faulkner,
Clark reportedly said that Satan talks to him
and tells him to hurt little children. But, con-
tinued Clark, he wouldn't do that because
he is a Christian.


Clark had apparently been attending
the Church of God of Prophecy and heard
something there that left him "... confused
due to his lack of mentality," stated a report
by OCPD Detective Bettye Taylor.
Court papers indicate that Clark has the
mentality of a 6-to- 10-year-old.
Clark's court file contains a Feb. 1, 2010,
report by APD counselor Janet Snow which
states that he was examined by Dr. Steven
Edney, a licensed clinical psychologist. The
report states that Dr. Edney determined that
although Clark was "legally sane during the
incidents in question" he was "incompetent
to proceed" and "incompetent to waive his
Miranda rights."
Dr. Edney went on to state that Clark "...
does not even understand the basic vocabu-
lary associated with his Miranda rights, nor
some of the basic concepts."
However, another licensed psychologist,
Dr. Gregory Landrum, was appointed by the
court to evaluate Clark. In his report, Dr. Lan-
drum said Clark "... is considered competent
to proceed at this time."
Ms. Snow's report added that Clark has a
full-scale IQ of 63 and a Vineland Adaptive
Behavior score of 69, which is considered
low.
The Vineland test measures a person's
adaptive behavior from infancy to adult-
hood.
According to the Department of Correc-
tions (DOC) mental retardation means: "...
significantly sub-average (IQ of 70 or below)
general intellectual functioning as deter-
mined by assessment with one or more of
the individually administered general intel-
ligence tests, resulting in or associated with
deficits or impairments in adaptive behavior,
with onset before the age of 18."
Ms. Snow's report also states that Clark's
IQ and Vineland scores were the results of
tests given him in 2007 at the Goldsboro
Counseling Center in Goldsboro, N.C.
An average IQ score on the same test
given Clark is between 90 and 109.


So how does a judge handle these situa-
tions and come to an equitable solution?
"The purpose of the criminal justice
system is to punish a person for criminal
behavior and protect the community. Any
judge would structure a sentence toward
those goals," explained District 19 Chief
Judge Steve Levin of a judge's role in gen-
eral. "Certainly, if it's a mental health issue,
the judge would take that into consideration
and structure the release in order to benefit
the community. How that is done is up to
the judge."
Judge Levin went on to say while the law
dictates how many evaluations are done, it's
the attorneys in the case who dictate what
the judge sees before sentencing the indi-
vidual.
Judge Steven Leifman, a special advisor
on criminal justice and mental health for
the Supreme Court of Florida, said there are,
however, situations where the judge is en-
titled to see the entire mental evaluation.
For example, if an evaluation is ordered
by the public defender ex parte that means
the public defender pays for it and uses it
for their own purposes to prepare their de-
fense.
"But if a court orders an evaluation for
competency to stand trial, then all three par-
ties (prosecution, defense and the judge) are
entitled to see it," said Judge Leifman, with-
out referring to any particular case.
Besides his duties with the Florida Su-
preme Court, Judge Leifman is also an as-
sociate administrative judge for Miami-Dade
County Court in the 11th Judicial Circuit.
Judge Leifman said 125,000 people with
serious mental illnesses are arrested every
year in Florida. It's grown to such propor-
tions that there are currently more than
17,000 inmates in state prisons who are suf-
fering from some sort of mental illness.
"It's growing so fast that if we don't fix it,
it's going to double over the next 10 years
and Florida will need 10 new prisons just for
the mentally ill," he said in a phone inter-


view. "We need a system to help keep these
people out of jail because it's extremely ex-
pensive. People with mental illnesses gener-
ally cost seven times more than someone
without a mental illness, who is arrested on
the same charge."
One such bill was introduced during the
last legislative session by Florida State Sena-
tor Mike Fasano (R-District 11). Senate Bill
1140 would have created an act that would
have required the development and imple-
mentation of a community mental health
and substance abuse forensic treatment
system. It would have added home- and
community-based mental health services to
the optional Medicaid services offered by the
state Medicaid program.
The bill died on April 30, 2010, in the
Committee on Children, Families and Elder
Affairs.
In a 2009 Corrections Today interview
Judge Leifman was quoted as saying there
are less than 40,000 beds for the mentally ill
in the U.S. Ninety percent of the country's
hospital beds have been closed and the na-
tion has experienced a 400 percent increase
in the mentally ill offenders entering the
criminal justice system, he said.
He went on to say in that interview that,
on any given day, there are about 500,000
people with mental illnesses in U.S. jails and
prisons and about another 500,000 on pro-
bation.
"This is one area of civil rights we have
gone backward on, and it certainly speaks
more about us as a society than it does
about people with mental illnesses," he was
quoted as saying. "We have made mental ill-
ness a crime in this country."

School bus in

accident
A school bus carrying 17 New En-
deavor High School students was
involved in a traffic crash Friday af-
ternoon. According to reports at the
scene, the bus was eastbound on
S.W. 21st Street when a Ford Explorer
reportedly failed to stop at the stop
sign at the intersection of S.W. Third
Avenue and S.W. 21st Street, travel-
ing into the path of the oncoming bus.
The bus struck the SUV, which rolled
over. The driver of the Ford Explorer
was transported to the hospital. At
press time, the Okeechobee City Po-
lice had not released her name. Fire/
Rescue personnel checked all of the
students on the bus and there ap-
peared to be no injuries. The bus had
very minimal damage and was able
to continue on the regular bus route.
All of the students were wearing their
seat belts at the time of the accident,
said Dale Barrett of the Okeechobee
County Schools Transportation De-
partment. "These buses are built to
protect the children and that is exact-
ly what it did," Mr. Barrett said.

Changes in weather affect animals l~ ___


By Jane Bicks DVM
Humane Society Pet Rescue Florida
Many of us did not ride our horses or
spend much time outdoors with our dogs
this summer. It was too darn hot. Now we
can spend more time with them. I have
some tips for you.
If your horse has not been ridden much
during the summer, let's get him into shape
before you ride. Lunging will help build
up stamina and remind him that he has to
pay attention to you. Depending upon the
amount of exercise he got during the sum-
mer, lunging should be brief the first time,
gradually increasing the amount of time you
spend. If your feeding time changed from
summer, remember not to work your horse
right after eating. Even though it is not as hot
as it was, it is generally a good idea to hose
your horse once you are done riding.
Any veterinarian will tell you that preven-
tion is the name of the game for big or small
pets. When you are finished riding take a
good look at your horse, from head to tail
to hooves, looking for sores, hair loss, swell-
ing and anything abnormal. Cleaning the
hooves are a must. The perfect horse owner
inspects his horse, even when he is not be-
ing used. I visited a horse that was well cared
for but not frequently groomed or loved on.
The horse had a fever and large lump on his
neck. Once I treated the abscess and pulled
out a piece of thin wire that had gotten un-
der the skin. The owner and I searched for
the cause which was a small break in the
fence. The owner inspects his land and
fence weekly now.


While dogs are smaller than horses, they
require frequent inspections from head to
toe when you come back in the house. If
your dog is a stay home dog, he needs in-
spections as well. During exercise and play
a dog can pick up ticks, cut his pad, hit his
leg, get something in his eyes or ears, hurt
his mouth while trying to eat something he
shouldn't and get into trouble many other
ways. While cats don't seem to do an aw-
ful lot, they need that routine inspection as
well.
Assuming that your dog is healthy, ex-


ercising outside should begin at a slower
pace and for a shorter duration than normal.
Watch how your dog reacts to his play time.
If he seems to breathe hard, pant excessively
or wants to sit, you should stop the activity
and go inside. You can try it again at a slower
pace and shorter duration. If there is still a
problem then you should see a veterinar-
ian. Overweight dogs will generally have
difficulty with exercise. Older pets can mask
their age and impending illnesses very well.
Problems with exercise and play can often
bring out the bad side of health.

Inmate allegedly caught with pills


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
As if Renee Trevino's violation of proba-
tion arrest wasn't serious enough, things
soon became much worse for her when
she was allegedly found to be in posses-
sion of 57 roxycodone pills.
Trevino, 29, N.W 37th Ave., was first
arrested on Dec. 9 at 9:30 a.m. on an
Okeechobee County warrant charging her
with violation of probation possession of
alprazolam.
She was arrested by Deputy Steven
McKinley of the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) and taken to Okeecho-
bee County Jail where she was to be held
without bond.
Then, about 12 hours later, an OCSO
detention deputy found a blue pill in Trevi-
no's cell during a routine check, stated an
arrest report by Deputy Keith Murrish.
According to the deputy's report, Trevi-
no apparently had that and some other
pills in her mouth when she was arrested.
Those pills, continued the report, included
xanax, oxycodone and ziprexin.
Deputy Murrish then arrested Trevino
on felony charges of introduction of con-
traband into a correctional facility and
possession of a controlled substance (oxy-
codone). Her bond on those charges was
set at $12,500.
The deputy's report went on to state


that a short time
later, Trevino
had to be taken
to Raulerson
Hospital. Deten-
tion Deputy Ser-
geant Raul Mar
rero reportedly
told Deputy Mur-
rish that Trevino
-- "appeared to be
under the influ-
Renee Trevino ence/impaired
and the jail was
concerned for her safety," indicated the
deputy in his report.
While at the hospital, Trevino was
found to be hiding a small white plastic
container in a body cavity. The container
was removed by a doctor, then opened.
Deputy Murrish said 57, 30mg roxycodone
pills were found inside the container. The
pills, stated the deputy's report, weighed
5.9 grams.
Because of that, the case was turned
over to a detective with the Okeechobee
Narcotics Task Force who later charged
Trevino with trafficking in oxycodone over
4 grams. Her bond on that charge was set
at $75,000.
Deputy Murrish's report does not indi-
cate if the woman was admitted to the hos-
pital or returned to the county jail.

OHS volleyball team is

honored at banquet


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
LeAnna Cotton was named the most
valuable player and Maci Thomas earned
the Brahman award at the annual Okeecho-
bee High School Lady Brahman volleyball
banquet held Dec. 7 at the Okeechobee
High School Cafeteria.
Cotton finished up a wonderful four year
career by leading the team to the District 14-
4A Title. She also led the team in assists this
year with 442, and in kills with 234.
"I'm really happy that my team voted me
MVP. I really want to thank them. I had such
a great year this year. I wish it weren't my
last year," she said.
Cotton has already been accepted by
Capitol University in Ohio. She is being re-
cruited to play volleyball and softball at the
school.
She also played Wednesday night in a
senior showcase volleyball match in Palm
Beach County. She could field offers from
other schools for sports.
Cotton said the MVP award really meant
a lot and left her not knowing what to think.
She wished the girls well next year.
"When they make it to the state tourna-
ment next year I will come down and watch
them," she added.
Sophomore Maci Thomas took home the
Brahman award in her first year on varsity as
a starter. She said the award made her feel
good and made her happy. She also predict-
ed big things for the team in the future.
"The sophomore class is special. It is re-
ally amazing that we are so young and really
good. I feel like I did my best and I really ap-
preciate everything. I just try to do my best,"
she said.
Thomas said the Brahman award makes
her want to continue to improve, work hard,


and do better next year, "I'm really excited to
see what happens in the next few years. This
award gives me confidence."
Krista Ward won the best serving aver-
age award for a 98.3 percent serve percent-
age. Rebekah Bryan won the best serve
receive average award. Thomas took home
the award for most service aces. Bryan also
won the award for most digs.
Coach Todd Jones praised his team for
their performance this year. He said they
worked very hard and never let a ball fall hit
the floor. He said his players had a go get
it attitude all year and fought and played
their hearts out in some tough matches with
Jensen Beach, Vero Beach, and Titusville in
the regional quarterfinal.
Scholar athlete awards were handed
out to Darby Jones, Krista Ward, Sarah Da-
vis, LeAnna Cotton and Rebekah Bryan. 10
varsity players received letters, certificates,
and a replica District 14-4A championship
trophy.
"The thing I'm proud of with this team
was how they worked together and liked
one another. There was no bickering. They
had a lot of chemistry and none of the girls
were selfish. I am really thankful for their at-
titude and they were a great bunch of girls to
coach," he told the crowd.
JV Coach George May also thanked his
players for their effort and commitment this
year. He said there are a lot of talented girls
on the JV that will help the varsity next year.
Janet Smith won the JV most valuable
player award and Kyla Hargraves took home
the Brahman award.

Lady Bulldogs top Lady Brahmans


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Mariah Newkirk poured in 26 points
as the South Fork Lady Bulldogs defeated
Okeechobee High School, 55-38, in high
school girl's basketball action Thursday
night at the Brahman gymnasium.
South Fork jumped out to a 25-8 lead at
halftime and cruised to their second win in
three games against Okeechobee this year.
Brahman Coach Erin Morrow said her
team played a much better game Thursday
and will get some much needed rest after a
brutal early season schedule.
"My girls are pretty much exhausted at
this point. We had a long week and played
against some good competition with a lim-
ited number of players. Tonight was the best
we played this week," she said.


Morrow said she saw a lot of hard work,
team work, and hustle from her team in this
game so she was very proud of their effort.
Maranda Serrano had 13 points and Ja-
net Smith added 12 points for the Lady Brah-
mans. Chanice Whitton had seven points
for South Fork. Okeechobee and South Fork
battled to a 30-30 tie in the second half of
the game." We worked as a team and played
better in the second half. Our girls didn't give
up and they could have. They didn't and I
was glad to see that from this team," she
said. "We came out slow. That has got us
before and it got us again tonight. We hope
to improve on that next week," she added.
The OHS team travels to Fort Pierce Cen-
tral on Monday night, visits Avon Park Thurs-
day, and will host Lake Placid next Friday
night at Yearling Middle School at 7:30 p.m.


YMS lady hoopsters fall to Sharks 41-26


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Cheyenne Nunez had 12 points as Year-
ling Middle School played a much better
game Thursday as they lost to the Sebastian
Middle School Sharks, 41-26 in Okeecho-
bee.
Yearling trailed 14-2 after the first quarter
but played much better down the stretch
against a polished and talented Sharks
team.
Sebastian led 25-6 at half time, 33-13 after
three quarters, and 41-26 at the buzzer.
Taylor Smith had 20 points for Sebastian.


Katie Taylor added nine points. Maude Go-
pher had six points and Delaney Osceola
added five points for Yearling.
Latashia Williams had eight rebounds to
lead Yearling. Nunez had three steals, and
Osceola had two assists. Yearling had 28 re-
bounds and seven steals as a team.
Turnovers remained a problem for the
Lady Bulls as Sebastian got a lot of easy shot
opportunities in the first half.
Yearling got as close as 35-24 in the sec-
ond half as they scored 11 points in the first
few moments of the fourth quarter.
Yearling is off until January for the holi-
day break.

LAKE
Continued From Page 1
When the lake is high, the COE manages
the dike for flood control. When the water
gets lower SFWMD is responsible for lake
management for maximum consumptive
use.
"We can't rehab that thing fast enough,"
the colonel said of the dike. He said the COE
would be replacing metal culverts around
the lake with concrete culverts.
The colonel said that a lot more states are
now fighting for COE money. He predicted it
would be harder in the future to get funding
for dike rehabilitation. He said that Congress
did not appreciate the uniqueness of Lake
Okeechobee and the dike. In some cases
there are people living right next to the dike.
In most other instances, dams span a valley
between two mountains. Nobody lives in
the valley and the land is owned by the fed-
eral government.
He said that if the dike were built today, it
would not be built to the original standards.
It was built with the best technology of that
day.
Tom Teets of South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) stated that since
1994, 45,000 acres of stormwater treatment
areas (STAs) have been built at a cost of $1.8
million. He said that in 2010 over 1,4000,000
acre feet of water in STAs reduced phospho-
rus loads by 75 percent.
The Lake Side Ranch STA serving the Tay-
lor Creek and Nubbin Slough Basin is well
under way according to Mr. Teets.
Best Management Practices cover 1.163
million acres north of the lake. Mr. Teets said
they not only benefit water quality but en-
hance agricultural production. Among the
challenges faced by SFWMD, listed by Mr.
Teets, are state and local permits, local land
use and zoning laws and reduced funding.

"Basically what we are looking for is less
water east and west and more water to the
Glades," he said. However, he added that
under current regulations water quality has
to be improved before the water could be
sent south.
"I think what we need to do is exercise
our political muscle,' asserted Commission-
er Sarah Heard of Martin Country.
Under the current lake regulation sched-
ule the maximum ideal height of the lake of
15.5 feet. Currently water managers are al-
ways looking for more water storage areas
to keep the lake level down to keep pres-
sure off the dike and to keep from having to
discharge water to the estuaries. However,
state owned water storage areas take land
off local tax rolls.
Glades County Commissioner Russell
Echols asked when enough of the dike re-
habilitation would be completed in order
to safely raise the maximum allowable lake
level.
Mr. Applebaum stated that once Reaches
1, 2 and 3, the most critical reaches, are re-
habilitated, it might be possible to relax lake
height restrictions.
Commissioner Echols made a motion
that the coalition promptly passed making


the completion of Reaches 1, 2 and 3 a top
priority.
"This is a great forum because the policy
makers get together," said Carole Wehle ex-
ecutive director of SFMWD.
'As the economy goes up and down usu-
ally the environment is the first thing that
doesn't get funded," Ms. Wehle said. "We
are all experiencing this serious economic
downturn."
"What are the most important things we
can do with limited resources?" she asked.
"We stand ready to give as much informa-
tion as necessary in the public policy de-
bate."
The coalition asked the staff of COE and
SFMWD to formulate a short list of ecologi-
cal priorities. The coalition is a teleconfer-
ence meeting Jan. 28 to study those priori-
ties and make plans to lobby Congress for
those objectives.
Commissioner Echols made the point
that the Everglades are often called a nation-
al treasure. Therefore the 16 South Florida
counties should not bear the entire cost of
Everglades rehabilitation.

Westwood hands OHS girls basketball brutal defeat :*


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Fort Pierce Westwood took advantage
of an outmanned Okeechobee High School
team as they walloped the Lady Brahmans
81-25 handing Okeechobee one of their
worst defeats in recent memory.
Okeechobee played without two players
who were suspended for violation of team
rules so only five girls suited up for the game.
They ended up playing the entire game.
Westwood jumped to a 30-7 lead after the
first quarter and held a 59-9 lead at halftime.
Okeechobee was held to only two points in
the second quarter and went scoreless for a
10 minute stretch in the first half.
Kaneisha Atwater had 25 points, nine as-
sists and nine steals for Westwood (5-1). Mik-
eria Thompson had 22 points and Kashella
Saint-Jean had 13 assists and 12 points.
Ami Edwards had a double-double with
16 points and 18 rebounds for Okeechobee
(4-5).
Okeechobee had trouble against the Lady


Lock in Florida Prepaid College


plan prices before year ends


The season of saving with Florida Prepaid
College Plans is the best time to give the gift
of a college education to children or grand-
children, and the Florida Prepaid College
Board encourages families to make it a reso-
lution to invest in higher education before
the holiday time of year comes to an end.
With the rise in higher education costs
and the approaching close of the Florida
Prepaid College Plan enrollment period,
this holiday season is the perfect chance
to spend on a gift that children cannot out-
grow: the gift of education. Families have
until January 31, 2011 to enroll this season
and purchase the peace of mind that comes
with safeguarding a loved one's future.
According to the Wall Street Journal,
the annual spike in spending around the
holidays is about $65 billion nationwide,
or roughly $600 per household. If a family
saves that $600 every year instead of spend-
ing it on gifts, it would add up to significant
college savings. Wall Street Journal analysts
and many top financial planners suggest
opening a 529-college savings plan for each
of your children.
"It's smart to direct some holiday dollars
to what children will need for their future, a
college education," says Tom Wallace, Flori-
da Prepaid College Board executive director.
"Starting to save for college or enhancing ex-
isting college savings for your children and
grandchildren may be the most meaningful
gift you give this holiday season."
The Florida Prepaid College Board offers
two 529 plan options for family and friends
to give their loved ones something they'll
never outgrow a Florida Prepaid College
Plan or a Florida College Investment Plan is
the ideal gift for the holidays and any special
occasion.
The Stanley G. Tate Florida Prepaid Col-


lege Program allows families to prepay tu-
ition and most required fees in advance for
Florida's 11 state universities and 28 Florida
Colleges (formerly known as community
colleges). The Florida College Investment
Plan offers a range of investment options
and flexibility that can be used to cover any
qualified higher education expenses such as
fees, books, off-campus housing as well as
tuition and fees. Once a child is enrolled in a
Florida College Investment Plan, friends and
family are able to easily add to help pay for a
multitude of college expenses, and can even
use gift certificates downloadable online.
Families can enroll in a Prepaid Plan and
download a Florida College Investment Plan
gift certificate online at www.myfloridapre-
paid.com, or call 1-800-552-GRAD (4723) to
order an Enrollment Kit in English or Span-
ish.

stretch of the second quarter, Okeechobee
had only two shots at the basket due to

Okeechobee played much better basket-
