Sea Scouts: new opportunity for local youth


By Betty Bockoras
On Saturday, Oct. 23, District Chairman
Ray Worley and District Commissioner Janet
Rogers, of the Big Lake District Boy Scouts of
America, met with Dan and Joyce Moore of
the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, to finalize the
Sea Scouts program in Okeechobee.
The Big Lake District includes all the com-
munities around Lake Okeechobee, making
the Sea Scout Program a natural for our Dis-
trict, says Mr. Worley.
The Safe Boating Association is sponsor-
ing the Sea Scouts in Okeechobee. As mem-
bers of this organization, as well as mem-
bers of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Dan and
Joyce are well qualified to teach young men
and women in all areas of the aquatic field.
Also, Dan and Joyce have had Youth Pro-
tection training. This training dictates that a
young person must be in the presence of
both a man and a woman at all times, thus
assuring accountability for the adult and per-
sonal safety for the Sea Scout member.
Dan has been with the local U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary for three years and is Flo-
tilla Commander. He holds the office of Pro-
gram Visitor, Vessel Examiner, and Human


Resource Officer, as well as an instructor of
boating safety.
As a youth, he was a Sea Scout himself,
as well as an adult leader when his son was
young. He feels that the Sea Scouts person-
ally helped him build good self esteem and
character and wants to instill that in our
youth of today.
Joyce, too, has been in the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary for three years, holding the
office of Information Systems, Finance Of-
ficer, and Vessel Examiner. Joyce has been
elected to the position of Vice Flotilla Conm-
mander for the year 2011.
Both Joyce and her husband are de-
vout Christians and attend The Gathering
church.
Sea Scout groups are called "ships." To
be a Sea Scout in Okeechobee's Ship 957, a
young man or woman must be at least in the
8th grade, up to age 21. Since the Sea Scouts
are a branch of the Boy Scouts, they must
subscribe to the same oath and scout law,
with the same opportunity to earn badges
for advancement in rank. But that's where
the similarities end.
Sea Scouts learn to safely operate and

Auxiliary, met with District Chairman
Ray Worley and District Commissioner
Janet Rogers to finalize the Sea Scouts
program in Okeechobee.
maintain outboard motorboats, sail boats,
canoes, and kayaks. Lake Okeechobee,
along with other nearby rivers and lakes,
offer year-round possibilities for aquatic
adventure. Kids can learn scuba diving or
invite out-of-town Sea Scouts to have fish-
ing tournaments or sailboat races on Lake
Okeechobee.
They will have week-ends of on-the-wa-
ter training, as well as projects to clean up
and conserve Okeechobee's waterways.
Once a Sea Scout reaches the age of 17
and has received the proper rank, he or she
is entitled to go on actual rescues and mis-
sions with the U.S. Coast Guard. Those who
ultimately enlist in the U.S. Navy or United
States Coast Guard will have advanced rates
in rank by having been in the Sea Scouts.
To get Sea Scouts started here in
Okeechobee, five young people must sign
up to be members both boys and girls
are welcome. There is also a need for men
and women to be leaders.
For more information and applications
to join the Sea Scout program or if you'd
like to become a leader please call Dan or
Joyce Moore at 863-824-7623.

The Kiwanis Club of Okeechobee will

some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

Parade was wonderful
I want to tell those who organized the
Christmas parade this year that they did a
great job. It was beautiful. Everyone who
built a float or put together an entry should
be applauded. And the line up organization
was so much better than in recent years.
They had it all organized using the side
streets to line up different sections of the
parade. And everyone knew their number
so they could line up in order. There were
plenty of helpers there to keep folks orga-
nized and answer questions. And they ac-
tually enforced the "pooper scooper" rule
and the mounted units either had someone
with them to clean up as they went, or else
they went to the back of the parade after the
marching units had all passed. I know Main
Street only agreed to do the parade one year,
but I hope whoever takes it over next year
learns from their example.
Toni Doyle and crew at Main Street
should be applauded for an amazing job of
organizing an event in a few short weeks.
It was not only the parade, but the whole
festival in the park, with limited records and
little to no cooperation from the folks at the
chamber. You all are amazing and if the
City Council has anything to do with this or
Speckled Perch, I think Main Street should
be hosting all future events in the park! You
have shown grace under pressure and class!
Keep up the great work Toni and crew!
I agree, the Christmas Parade was
great. I hope that next year the vendors stay
later and maybe even open on Sunday. I live
west of town and thought I would come to
the parade and then walk through the park
and shop and get some goodies, but as I
was walking through the park, the vendors
were closing up. Not a biggie but I think they
could have made a little more money if I had
some time to look. Oh well, maybe there is a
time limit or maybe they were just worn out
from such a long day. Great job Main Street,
keep up the good work, we appreciate your
efforts.


I agree the festival was wonderful and I
am glad that we have such dedicated people
in the community that are willing to put forth
such an effort to make this a better place to
live for everyone, but most importantly our
children. These holidays are the ones they
will be remembering for the rest of their
lives and shaping their opinion of how holi-
days for their children should be. Thank you
Miss Toni and everyone else who helped
make it happen. All the volunteers at every
booth, every organization, every church,
and I really LOVED the steel drums! Such
a wonderful sound!! THANK YOU, THANK
YOU, THANK YOU!

Class size
The teachers no longer have control,
and the students are more than willing to
see how far they can push it. There is no
discipline in the classroom anymore. Mak-
ing the student to teacher ratio smaller
won't change a thing. When I graduated
high school at OHS in '79, Coach Kingery,
and Coach Jackson were the last people that
you wanted to be sent to, and it kept us little
hooligans in check. We need to realize that
time outs, and detention don't always work,
and go back to the old ways of dealing with
trouble makers.
Poorly behaved kids make for unman-
ageable classrooms no matter how many
kids are in there and that's the bottom line.

Christmas
Personally I feel like the reason for the
season abides in your heart. If you are cel-
ebrating the birth of Christ no matter where
it originated, then that is what you are do-
ing. If other people with other religions are
celebrating something else, so be it. Not one
Christian can change what was started thou-
sands of years ago, however, it is the mean-
ing and the feeling in their heart that matters.
So what if he was not born in December?
The same feeling still prevails. So what if Pa-
gans started the holiday? Seems to me like to
hear it told, they started all of them. It is what
is in your heart that matters.
I know others that do not celebrate the
same holidays as I and I know I do not want
their religion pushed on me, as I am sure
they do not want mine pushed on them.
"Happy Holidays" is acceptable and does
not push on my rights or someone else's.

Festival of Trees
Hospice of Okeechobee Festival of Trees
concluded on Sunday, Dec. 5, at 4 p.m. As
usual we had a crowd of people present at
closing who wanted to be sure that theywere
able to make the winning bid on the tree or
other holiday decoration which struck their
fancy. This year's festival raised over $4,000,
so even in tough economic times the people
in Okeechobee turned out to support the
mission of Hospice.
People who came to see the trees got a
real treat because of the talent and artistic
flair of the 64 businesses, clubs and individu-
als who donated the trees, wreaths and spe-
cialty items. Many of the items had themes
reflective of the organization donating the
item. We were happy to see so many chil-
dren this year who came to enjoy the magi-
cal environment created by the lighted trees
and, of course the variety of holiday cook-
ies.
Thanks to our judges, Nancy Dawn, Kelly
Raulerson and Toni Doyle who selected the
best in class for the 7 categories of decora-
tions. See our web page www.hospiceofo-
keechobee.org for winning trees.


Additional copies of the newspaper are available for

County commissioners CONVICTED


to put in a long day


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Proposed mudfests, a proposed flight
school and the injection well problem that
won't go away are among a long list of items
Okeechobee County Commissioners will be
considering at their only December meet-
ing.
Commissioners will consider authorizing
issuance of permits for three mudfests to be
held in the county Feb. 2011, Aug. 2011 and
Feb. 2012. The proposed mudfests would
take place on a 270 acre site on the north
side of S.R. 70 E. about one half mile west
of N.W 128th Avenue. In the past, mudfests
have created traffic jams on S.R. 70. The
applicant, Core Promotions, Inc., expects a
crowd of 5,000. Planning and development
staff has proposed a list of conditions in-
cluding sufficient private security, a separate
entrance for emergency vehicles, and traffic
signs warning of delays. The stipulations also
call for a broom truck and water truck to be
available to keep S.R. 70 cleared of mud.
Okeechobee could soon have a flight
school. Commissioners will be asked to re-
view Chris Richards' application to operate
a flight training school and office at the air-
port. The proposed lease would include tie
down space for one aircraft.
In another airport related matter commis-
sioners will consider a settlement agreement
with Aeronautical Associates over aviation
fuel sales.

charge by an Okeechobee County grand
jury. She was officially arrested later that
same day.
Gonzales has been in the Okeechobee
County Jail since Oct. 11 on charges of
fraudulent use of a credit card, criminal use
of personal identification information and
grand theft. Her bond on those charges is
$22,500. According to court records, she is
to go before Circuit Court Judge Robert Be-
langer Thursday, Dec. 16, for her docket call
on that case.
Those charges are unrelated to the De-
nova case.
"I'm very happy that this family is finally
getting some closure," said Sheriff Paul May
of the arrest. "Investigator LaFlam did an ex-
cellent job and our other cold cases will be
re-examined also. We will never stop look-
ing for these people who commit the crime
of murder."
Investigator LaFlam said Gonzales was
charged with felony murder because Mr. De-
nova was killed during the commission of
another crime, but he did not elaborate on
that other crime.
"However, the statute of limitations on
the other applicable charges have run out,"
he said.

been ongoing for several years the board
will consider the request of Frank DeCarlo
of America Drilling Services for a letter of ex-
oneration. His company drilled the injection
well in question. The well failed to perform
as expected resulting in lengthy litigation. As
a result Mr. DeCarlo was awarded $150,000.
In a related matter county administrator
Lyndon Bonner is expected to give an up-
date on the abandonment of the injection
well. He will also give an update on FEMA
reimbursements from the hurricanes, an up-
date on union discussions and discuss the
process for naming his successor.
In other action the board is expected to:
amend the 2010-2011 budget to ac-
count for encumbered funds not received or
expended by Sept. 30;
consider a resolution providing for a
uniform method of collecting non-ad valo-
rum assessments;
receive the Annual Florida Heartland
Regional Economic Development Incentive
Report and Heartland Rural Mobility Plan.


There is no statute of limitations for felo-
ny murder.
The special investigator chose not to re-
lease the motive for the alleged murder-
saying he would rather let that come out at
trial.
The case was originally assigned to for-
mer OCSO detective T.J. Brock, but was
then re-assigned in July 2010 to Investiga-
tor LaFlam. Sheriff May said every lead had
been followed up until that time.
Investigator LaFlam said the arrest came
about "after we just started kicking over
some stones."
He went on to say that Mr. Denova's fam-
ily was happy that his case was under inves-
tigation again and are now pleased to have
closure.
Records show that Gonzales has several
felony arrests including a July 2007 arrest for
possession of cocaine. She was later found
guilty and sentenced to serve five months in
the county jail by then-Circuit Court Judge
Sherwood Bauer.
In October of 2008 she was found guilty
of burglary of a structure and was sentenced
to 18 months in prison by then-Circuit Court
Judge Lawrence Mirman. Department of
Corrections (DOC) records show that she
began her sentence Dec. 18, 2008, and was
released from the Broward Correctional In-
stitution on May 1, 2010.
"She has an extensive criminal history,"
said Investigator LaFlam.

murder, two counts each of robbery with a
firearm and burglary of a dwelling with as-
sault/battery.
Boswell was also sentenced to serve
five years for grand theft-motor vehicle, five
years for cruelty to animals and 15 years for
possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
All of the charges will run concurrently.
Lopez also received five-year sentences
for grand theft-motor vehicle and cruelty to
animals. Like Boswell, his sentences will run
concurrently.
Prior to his sentencing Boswell, reading
from a prepared statement, said his rights
were violated and that Judge Belanger was
not fair or unbiased. He claimed Judge Be-
langer also "showed unfair camaraderie" to
prosecutors Ashley Albright and Don Rich-
ardson.
He went on to say that he deserved a new
trial because his defense attorney, Bernard
Fernandez, didn't provide "sufficient coun-
sel."
Continuing, Boswell also claimed that
evidence was planted on him by T.J. Brock,

Boswell closed his statement by asking
for a new trial in another county and a new
judge.
A third man-Daniel Solomon, 32 was
convicted late this summer of first degree
felony murder, two counts of robbery and
one count of armed burglary. He, too, re-
ceived a life sentence on each charge.
Solomon drove the other two men to Pu-

car when he heard the gunshots and left Bo-
swell and Lopez to fend for themselves.
"If you're going to go out and commit a
home invasion robbery and felony murder,
you'd better get a good getaway driver. He
didn't," Mr. Richardson told jury members at
Boswell's trial.
According to state theories, Boswell and
Lopez walked up to the front door of Pu-
lido's DeBerry Gardens home and Lopez,
who spoke Spanish, asked: "Do you have
any coke?"
Then, one of the men shot Pulido and his
pitbull Fatboy.
Boswell and Lopez then entered a bed-
room where Pulido's paramour Alexandria
Paige Norman, 21, had been sleeping and
demanded drugs and money. Norman tes-
tified that she didn't know anything about
drugs, but gave them a jar containing spare
change.
When the men left the home, they saw
that Solomon had fled. They then went back
into the home and took the keys to Nor-
man's 2001 black Dodge Durango and left.
Both Boswell and Lopez were later ar-
rested in a housing subdivision near Lake
Placid.
It's still unknown which man actually
killed the 28-year-old Pulido. Under the law
that doesn't matter since both men were
charged with felony murder meaning, that
someone was killed during the commission
of a felony.
"We don't have to prove he pulled the
trigger," said Mr. Albright in his closing argu-
ment at Boswell's trial in October. "He was
engaged in the burglary. He was engaged in
the robbery. And, Angel Pulido was killed."

New chamber of commerce formed in Okeechobee


The Business Development Board of
Okeechobee (BDB) is pleased to announce
the creation of the Chamber of Commerce
of Okeechobee County. The BDB was cre-
ated by and has been operating under the
umbrella of Okeechobee Main Street since
September 2009. The BDB was planning to
separate from Main Street in 2011. The func-
tions of the BDB will be incorporated within
the newly formed Chamber of Commerce,
and current members of the BDB will auto-
matically become Chamber members.
"Since the creation of the BDB, one of
the common concerns we've heard from
businesses throughout the community is the
need for an active Chamber of Commerce,"
said Terry Burroughs who has agreed to
serve as President (volunteer leader) of the
newly formed Chamber. 'As we were in the
process of separating the BDB from Main
Street, it seemed logical to incorporate the
new organization as a Chamber of Com-
merce rather than work to create another
organization in addition to the Business De-
velopment Board. These organizations rely
primarily on membership dues from busi-
nesses, and there are only so many business
organizations the community can support."
In addition to Terry Burroughs, volun-
teers who have agreed to serve on the initial
board include Mike Costopoulos of Costo-
poulos & Helton, P.A.; Charlie Hukriede of
Golden Corral; Vic Lancaster of Glades Elec-
tric Cooperative; Robert Lee of Raulerson
Hospital; Christa Luna of Gilbert Chevrolet;


J.D. Mixon of Willson-Mixon & Associates;
Carl Shumate of The Alarm Company; and
Greg Thogersen of the Atlantic Group at
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. "We wanted
to have representatives from a variety of in-
dustries and from both larger and smaller
businesses to serve on the initial Board of
Directors," Mr. Burroughs said. Once the
organization is established, the Board of Di-
rectors will be elected by the membership.
There will be a nine member board with
three directors elected each year to serve a
three-year term.
Brian Cartland, who serves as Executive
Director of the BDB, will serve as Executive
Director of the Chamber. Mr. Burroughs said,
"One of our considerations was we wanted
to be sure we have the right staff in place.
Brian has served in senior management po-
sitions at both the St. Petersburg Area Cham-
ber of Commerce and the Greater Sarasota
Chamber of Commerce. Brian has the eco-
nomic development and international trade
experience we were looking for when form-
ing the BDB, but he also worked for the
Florida Division of Tourism, which is now
Visit Florida, managing all the state's Official
Florida Welcome Centers, the visitor inquiry
telephone system, the tourism information
fulfillment system, and worked on other
tourism marketing initiatives for the state. I
think we've got the right guy in place."
The chamber will have a kick-off event
on Jan. 26, 2011, at the Williamson Con-
ference & Education Center at Indian River


State College located at 2229 N.W 9th Av-
enue in Okeechobee. The event will start at
11:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at noon.
There is no cost to attend, but registration in
advance is required. Seating is limited so if
you wish to attend, contact the BDB at 863-
467-6246 or Brian@OkeechobeeBusiness.
com.


The Chamber of Commerce of Okeecho-
bee County is committed to diversifying the
economy, assisting both large and small
businesses, and increasing the number of
high wage job opportunities while main-
taining the distinctive old Florida character
of Okeechobee.


Freezing temperatures


increase wildfire risk


A cold front moving through the state
caused temperatures to dip below the
freezing mark in many areas and is increas-
ing the potential for wildfires.
"These low temperatures create dead
and dry vegetation that allow wildfires to
start and burn easily," said Commissioner
of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Charles Bronson. 'A lack of the typical trop-
ical moisture usually seen during hurricane
season has left Florida drier than normal in
spite of recent rainfall. These frosts and
freezes will make a bad situation worse,"
Mr. Bronson said.Recently, Commissioner
Bronson stated that his Division of Forestry
is expecting wildfire activity during 2011 to
be higher than normal due to the strong La
Nina weather conditions currently in place.


Similar conditions in the past have been
associated with Florida's five most active
wildfire years.
"This cold front could lead to increased
wildfire activity sooner than expected," Mr.
Bronson said. Mr. Bronson urges everyone
to concentrate on the three most important
areas of their home:
1. Roof and gutters-should be free of
all vegetation and debris.
2. Around the sides of the house-keep
the area clean and landscape the area us-
ing plants with low flammability; keep or-
ganic mulch, especially pine straw, moist.
3. Within 30 feet of the house-keep
the area mowed, watered within current
local water management guidelines, and
keep all debris and brush picked up.

Gladys Thomas Lowe was one

of first babies born in county


One of the first children born in
Okeechobee County died this week.
Gladys Thomas Lowe was born in 1917,
the same year that Okeechobee County
was created from parts of Palm Beach, St.
Lucie and Osceola Counties.
The April 26, 1917 Okeechobee Call
(which later became the Okeechobee
News) reported the birth with three lines:
Born -- To Mr. and Mrs. Carlisle Thomas,
April 5th, a girl. Mother and child doing
well.
Other news of the day in that edition

Palm Beach will, which is far better.
Capt. Harmon Raulerson treated his
many friends to many a delightful outing
down the river to the lake on his new boat,
the T.W Wilson. In spite of the inclemency
of the weather many took advantage of his
kindness and the boat was well built.
H.C. Chandler will erect a silo on his
acreage near town to provide fodder for his
Jersey cows. Itwill cost something like $500
for the full equipment, but the high cost of
feeding his dairy cows will be solved.
L.E. Davis has been building a road on
the east side from the new road across the


bridge to a point several rods toward the
town on that side.
T.C. Burbage has contracted to pack
tomatoes from one hundred and ten acres,
and will use the Squires Lumber Co.'s
building across from the Ice Co.'s office for
a packing house.

Kissimmee River Sunday and was at the
Knight ways where she had her hull re-

Top of the Lake Christmas parade draws crowds


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee community loves a pa-
rade, and for most, the annual lighted Christ-
mas parade is their favorite.
The event had been sponsored by the
Okeechobee Chamber of Commerce for the
past 20 years, but this year, the tradition was
in jeopardy.
The chamber of commerce building at
the town's main intersection is dark; the
phones have been turned off. The organi-
zation reportedly owes the IRS more than
$100,000 in back taxes, penalties and fees.
The last chamber meeting was in the spring.
Members of the board of directors do not re-
turn phone calls from the media.
Two rival groups are organizing new
chambers of commerce to fill the void.
Meanwhile, the second Saturday of De-
cember-the date of the annual holiday pa-
rade and festival-drew closer.
City Councilman Dowling Watford who
loves tradition and loves Okeechobee could
not bear to see the town miss a Christmas
parade. Perhaps he didn't really have the
authority to step in ... but that did not stop
him from acting. He contacted Okeechobee
Main Street and asked if that organization
would run the parade and festival this year.
With barely a month left for planning,
Okeechobee Main Street Director Toni Doyle
agreed. A committee was quickly formed
and tasks assigned. Local media helped
with publicity. Permits were obtained to
close streets for the parade and to hold the
festival in the park. In order to help fill the
park with booths-and to help local non-
profit organizations-Main Street decided to
waive booth fees for the non-profit organiza-
tions, a move that both generated goodwill
and helped increase the number of booths
at the event.
The week before the parade, the weather
turned cold, but the weatherman promised
sunny skies for Saturday. Saturday morning
started out a cool, wet morning with fog cov-
ering the ground and dark skies threatening.
But by mid-morning the sun was out, the
clouds disappeared and the temperatures
rose to "comfortably warm but not too hot."
It was a perfect day for a festival.
Downtown the park was buzzing with
arts and crafts vendors, food booths and
fundraising and informational booths from
the local nonprofit organizations.
The parade was set for 6 p.m., with line
up to start at 5 p.m. Participants, who had
been given their parade order number in
advance, found the parade staging area
well organized. The side streets were used
to line up sections of the parade so they
could easily feed into the main parade when
their numbers were called. Members of the
police and sheriff's auxiliary units were sta-
tioned throughout the parade staging area
with clipboards showing the floats, march-
ing units and other entries where to wait.
Officials sped through the area on golf carts,
keeping everything organized.
The parade started exactly on time, de-
lighting the hundreds of spectators who
lined both sides of the parade route, from
the U-Save Supermarket on Parrott Avenue,
north to the main intersection and then west


on State Road 70 to the
end of Flagler Park. They
cheered for the bands,
took photos of children
on the school, church
and 4-H floats, sang
e along with the Christ-
mas music and waved
to the beauty queens.
Many of the entries
Santa arrived on brought smiles chil-
the last float. dren dressed as candy
canes and gift boxes, a
float depicting the Grinch and Whoville from
the Dr. Suess story, mounted units with lights
on the horses. The Okeechobee Explosion
gymnasts drew gasps and cheers as they ex-
ecuted flips and cartwheels as they marched
along State Road 70. A few of the entries
were greeted with laughter-a swamp
buggy with a sign identifying it as "Santa's
Redneck Sleigh," with deer horns mounted
on the front; two girls in red long johns and
Cowboy Santa hats riding a bicycle built for
two; Santa donning sun glasses to deal with
the glare of the many flash bulbs that greet-
ed his arrival on the last float.
The parade lasted about an hour and
15 minutes and as it finished, spectators
speculated about the future. What, some
wondered, will happen next year? Main
Street officials were clear their participation
was for this year only on an emergency ba-
sis. Whether one of the new chambers will
rise to the challenge remains to be seen. For
more parade photos, see page 14.

Two bicyclists clad in red longjohns, cowboy boots, and cowboy santa hats
rode a red and green bicycle-built-for-two, which had been festooned with holi-
day decorations and a deer head mounted on the front handlebars. The pair got
plenty of attention as they rode back and forth down State Road 70 during the
Top of the Lake Lighted Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 11.

As temperatures drop in Florida, the
number of cold-related fish kills is likely
to increase. Chilly winter temperatures
can lead to fish die-offs in Florida's marine
habitats, rivers and lakes. The good news
is that these events are natural occurrences
and typically do not cause permanent dam-
age to the ecosystem or to fish populations.
In some cases they are even beneficial, in
that they help limit the spread of invasive
exotic species.
Fish kills are often caused by sudden
temperature fluctuations or by extended
periods of extreme temperatures. Such
kills can occur any time of the year in Flor-
ida, but they are most common in winter,

Cold weather may lead to fish kills


when air temperatures drop. Although
water stays relatively warm for awhile af-
ter the air cools, extended cold snaps can
cause water temperatures in inland water
bodies and estuaries to drop. The cold may
kill fish outright by cold stress or weaken
them so that they are more susceptible
to disease. Another phenomenon, called
lake-turnover, may occur when suddenly
cooled surface water sinks and mixes with
deeper, oxygen-poor water. This can cause
fish to suffocate.

Okeechobee Chargers 8 and under fall to Port St. Lucie


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Chargers 8 and under
all star football team fought Port St. Lucie to
a draw in the first half, but allowed two late
touchdowns as PSL won 14-0 Saturday.
Joey Fleurjuste scored on a five yard
touchdown run with just over five minutes
left, and Jacob Krauza broke loose for a 35
yard touchdown run with just 18 seconds
left to lead Port St. Lucie.
Nick Engler recovered two fumbles and
Cameron Schulz and Jacob Lucas had in-
terceptions to ruin promising Okeechobee
drives in the second half. Lucas interception
set up Port St. Lucie with a first and goal at
the Okeechobee five yard line. Fleurjuste ran
the ball up the middle on the next play from
scrimmage to break the scoreless tie.


OCRA hosts successful fund raiser


By Charles M. Murphy

The money raised will help OCRA send
some teams to the National Champion-
ships at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the
end of this month.
Teams from Port St. Lucie, Okeechobee,
and Rockledge competed in the games on
Saturday.
The OCRA All Stars won two out of five
games on Dec. 4, at Port St. Lucie and de-
cided to host this tournament to get their
teams ready for the National Tournament.
"It was an outstanding day," OCRA Pres-
ident Lawrence Fipps said, "We were sold
out of barbecue, about 800 dinners. We
have a few things to work out but we will
definitely be able to go to South Carolina."
Fipps said the fans were treated to a
number of very competitive and exciting
football games. He said the kids are really
pumped about the opportunity to travel to
South Carolina.
"Everybody is really looking forward to
the opportunity. The kids have practiced
hard, done what the coaches have asked of
them, and they have put in the time and ef-


fort. They don't just want to go to this tour-
nament they want to be successful there,"
he added.
OCRA will send a 15 and under team, a
13 and under team, and an 11 and under
team to the National Tournament.
Florida State Seminole Lonnie Pryor
made a surprise visit to the tournament to
pump up the kids. He has started for the
past two years in Tallahassee after a re-
cord breaking career at Okeechobee High
School.
Fipps also thanked Charlie Clemons
of Everglades Farm Equipment who was
a major sponsor and supporter of OCRA
Football this year. He said Clemons provid-
ed the grill and equipment for the barbe-
cue. He said a lot of people and businesses
have supported OCRA this year and all of
their support has been appreciated.
On the field Port St. Lucie defeated
Okeechobee in a flag football game and in
the first tackle game of the day Rockledge
defeated Port St. Lucie, 40-0.
The OCRA midget team, 15 and under
lost to Port St. Lucie 28-0. They made a
great improvement from the week before
when they fell 61-0 at Port St. Lucie.


For Okeechobee, Mikey Bobrowski had
two tackles and a fumble recovery. De-Nitrik
Whittaker had three tackles including a tack-
le for loss. Chad Williams had four tackles.
Logan Johnson had a fumble recovery. Jus-
tin Ray had a sack and two tackles. Tristen
Belangia had a sack and two tackles.
On offense, Nick Daley had 19 yards rush-
ing. Jay Krall had 21 yards rushing.
Members of the All Star team included
Cole Younger, Lane Collins, Bobby Wright,
Jacob Aldridge, Jay Krall, James Ward, Ozzy
Osceola, Mikey Bobrowski, Logan Johnson,
Chad Williams, Kamani Smith, Justin Ray,
Chance Crews, Hyatt Pearce, Rance Pendry,
De-Nitrik Whittaker, Tristen Belangia, and
Nick Daley.


OHS soccer beats Jensen Beach


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School Brahman
boys soccer team defeated Jensen Beach for
only the second time in six years Friday night
with a solid effort at Brahman stadium.
Sergio Vargas, Hunter Pritchard and Erick
Garcia scored goals for Okeechobee, who
built a 3-1 lead in the second half and held on
for the win. Okeechobee (6-1-1) is on pace
for one of their best soccer seasons ever.
"I told the kids only one other team from
Okeechobee had beaten Jensen Beach, that
is how we presented this game to the kids,
and they responded," Brahman Coach Lon-
nie Sears said.
Vargas added an assist for Okeechobee.
Garcia scored on a free kick for Okeecho-
bee.
Norris Tilton and Brian Armstong had
goals for Jensen Beach (4-7-1).
Coach Sears said Jensen Beach had a sol-
id team but only showed up with 12 players
for the match. He said that gave his team the
advantage.
"It wasn't our greatest game, but it is a sign
of a good team when you can win matches
without playing your best," Sears said.
Okeechobee is almost guaranteed the
second seed in the district tournament next
month and an easy first round match. Sears
said they can guarantee that position with a
win on Thursday at Lincoln Park.
Sears said while his team is playing well he
will not let them rest on their laurels, "I'm still
not 100 percent satisfied. We should really be


handling some of these teams. We really kept
Jensen Beach in the game Friday. They are a
good team but they only had 12 players."
Serafin Espinoza had one save in the Brah-
man net.
Okeechobee travelled to Martin County on
Monday night and hosted Fort Pierce Central
on Tuesday night.
The Brahmans will hold their annual
Christmas Tournament next Monday and
Tuesday, Dec. 20-21, at Brahman stadium.

Okeechobee Chargers


in tournament game W


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Chargers 10 and under
football team defeated Port St. Lucie 14-6 in a
hard fought game Saturday at the Okeechobee
Sports Complex.
Dylan Sheffield played a huge role in the
Okeechobee win. He caught a touchdown
pass in the third quarter to tie the score. Later
his pass rush caused a tipped pass and in in-
terception and another Okeechobee touch-
down.
Assistant Coach Jimmy Mills said the team
is used to coming from behind and doesn't get
frustrated or worried, "We started out slow and
we started out faster last weekend. We played
tough in the second half. We've been there be-
fore. It's not the first time, good bunch of kids,
kept their heads up and played tough."
QB Trevor Thomas threw for 54 yards and
a touchdown for the Chargers. His pass to
Sheffield helped Okeechobee overcome a 6-0
halftime deficit.
Port St. Lucie had driven 62 yards in eight
plays in the second quarter to take the lead.
Zach Gopher had a big play on defense.
With Port St. Lucie driving late in the game
he watched as Sheffield hit the Port St. Lucie
QB as he threw. Gopher caught the ball out
of the air and rumbled 60 yards for the clinch-
ing touchdown with just under a minute left
to play.
"That was a good heads up play. It definite-
ly sealed it for us," Mills added.
Mills said the kids are really excited about
going to South Carolina at the end of the
month to compete with some of the best
teams in the nation.
"We are still in the growing stages with the
all star team. We've only had them for three
weeks and there are still some growing pains,"
Mills said.
Jermaine Moore had 38 yards in offense


for Okeechobee. His
26 yard pass recep- g
tion helped set up the
Chargers first touch-
down.
Thomas account-
ed for 71 yards in of-
fense. Malcolm Cham-
bers had 25 yards in
offense. Jarrod Joyner
led the defense with
several tackles and a
fumble recovery. Go-
pher added a fumble
recovery.
Members of the
OCRA 10 and under Jermaine Moore
All Stars included Jar- rumbled 26 yards

The head coach is Gene Thomas.
In other games at the tournament, The
Chobee Lil' Brahmans 12 and under team
defeated the OCRA All Stars 22-0. Simeon
Washington had two touchdowns and over
200 yards rushing in the game for the Lil Brah-
mans. Expavious Mills added 75 yards rushing
and a touchdown. The OCRA midget all stars,
kids 15 and under lost to Port St. Lucie 28-0.
The OCRA 10 and under team lost 20-8 to the
Chobee Lil' Brahmans.
The Lil Brahmans will send two teams to
the national tournament and OCRA will send
three teams.

Four charged with robbe:


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News

Two adults and two juveniles have been
arrested on a number of felonies centering
around them allegedly robbing an 80-year-
old man at gunpoint.
The quartet is accused of entering the
man's home Friday, Dec. 10, and stealing a
number of items including a semi-automatic
shotgun, computer, cameras and Christmas
presents. The two adults have been booked
into the Okeechobee County Jail, while the
juveniles were taken the St. Lucie Regional
Detention Center in Fort Pierce.
Those arrested, their charges and bonds
are:
Francisco Aguilar Hunt, 24, S.E. 25th
St., Okeechobee. He was charged with the
felonies of armed home invasion robbery,
dealing in stolen property, possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon (two counts),
possession of a firearm while in the com-
mission of a felony, aggravated assault on a
person over 65 years of age, possession of
marijuana with intent to sell, possession of
marijuana over 20 grams and grand theft-
firearm. He was also charged with the mis-
demeanor of contributing to the delinquen-
cy of a minor (two counts). His bond was
set at $86,000.
Ashley Nicole Garland, 20, S.E. Sixth
Ave., Okeechobee. She was charged with
burglary, armed home invasion robbery,
grand theft-firearm and grand theft. Her
bond was set at $20,000.
Brian Robertson, 17, Main St., Pahokee.
He was charged with burglary and armed
home invasion robbery.
Gilberto Lucio Tagle III, 17, N.W. Sixth
St., Okeechobee. He was charged with
home invasion robbery, aggravated assault
on a person over 65 years of age, grand
theft-firearm and grand theft. He was also
charged with the misdemeanor of posses-
sion of marijuana.
Also arrested during the execution of a
search warrant was Joanne Nicole Turgeon,
22, S.E. 25th St. She was arrested on a felony
charge of possession of marijuana over 20
grams. She was booked into the county jail
under a bond of $5,000.
According to jail records Hunt, Garland
and Turgeon were still in custody as of Mon-
day, Dec. 13.
An arrest report by Detective Rick Durfee
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) stated that Garland first went to the
homeowner and asked if he had any gasoline
because she had run out. The man found a
gas can and the two of them returned to the
house. A short time later three masked men
entered the home and one of them was re-
portedly armed with a silver revolver. The el-
derly man was made to lie on the floor while
the men ransacked his home, the detective's
report continued.
Detective Durfee said Garland was also
lying on the floor so the victim would not
know she was involved.
Hunt, continued the report, threatened to
stab the victim if he moved.
All of the items were put into a Dodge
Durango SUV being driven by Garland and
the quartet left the victim's home, added
the report. Detective Durfee said they then
went to a home on S.E. 25th St. where they
divided up the items taken.
Among the things stolen from the home


Brian Robertson Gilberto Tagle III
was: a computer; jew-
elry; prescription pills;
an I-Pod; a shotgun;
cameras; clothes;
and, wrapped Christ-
mas presents.
The OCSO Special
Response Team later
Joanne Turgeon executed a search
warrant on Tagle's
home where numerous children's toys,
some in Christmas gift wrapping, were
found in a closet, stated the report. Some of
the same wrapping paper that was used on
the gifts was found on the floor of the closet,
the report added.
Detective Durfee went on to state that a
small amount of suspected marijuana was
found, along with a blue bandanna and a
black jacket. Both of those items had been
described by the victim as being worn by
one of the men, the detective added.
The report went on to state that a sec-
ond search warrant was served on the
doublewide mobile home where Hunt and
Turgeon were living. During that search,
said the detective, several of the items stolen
earlier from the elderly man were found. Ac-
cording to the report, those items included:
a laptop computer with the victim's name
on it; cameras; jewelry; and, a 19-inch com-
puter monitor.
Prescription pills with the victim's name
on the label on the bottle were reportedly
found in a garbage can. A .38 caliber silver
revolver was also reportedly found in the
home. Detective Durfee said 61.5 grams of
a suspicious substance was also found in a
bedroom belonging to Hunt and Turgeon.
The substance was field tested and indicated
a positive result for the presence of marijua-
na, he added. All but 5.9 grams of the sus-
pected marijuana was allegedly packaged in
small plastic bags for resale.
The detective learned that Hunt had pack-
aged the suspected pot, so Turgeon was not
charged with possession with intent to sell.
As for the shotgun, Detective Durfee said
Hunt reportedly traded the 12-gauge Rem-
ington Model 1100 to a man in DeBerry
Gardens for the marijuana and cash. Hunt
apparently still owed the man $100 in cash,
added the detective. The OCSO detective
said the shotgun has been recovered.
Garland and Robertson were charged
with burglary because they had apparently
gone to the victim's home sometime ear-
lier and entered the locked home through a
window. The report indicated that they al-
legedly took some clothes and some Christ-
mas presents.

Okeechobee High School wrestlers fin-
ished third and won their pool at the annual
Big Lake Wrestling Classic at Okeechobee
High School on Saturday.
Okeechobee earned 70 points as they
swept four dual matches in their pool.
Okeechobee defeated Avon Park 60-24, St.
Lucie West Centennial 66-11, Lakeland 42-
36, and Labelle 65-15.
Top performances included five consecu-
tive wins for veterans and team captains
Vance Wilkerson and Donald Bryan, and
four wins in five matches for John Kemp,
Larry Tabor, and Cody Griffith.
Coach Bruce Jahner said he was very
pleased with the performance of his young
team against some veteran competition,
"Were sitting at 9-2 going into the Christmas
break. We have a few injuries and we'll have
a little time to heal up. I thing we will come
back strong in the second half of the year."


High wrestlers in Big Lake Classic
Delfino Garcia finished 4th at 103 pounds
as he won three matches Saturday. Ben
Levins also won three matches at 119
pounds. Ryan Hagan finished third at 125
pounds. Bryan Levins finished in fourth
place at 145 pounds. Seth Crumb finished in
fourth place at 215 pounds.
"We have nine kids who are either fresh-
men or new to the mat and we have still
been competitive. It is always nice to see the
young wrestlers do well," Jahner added.
Okeechobee finishes the first half of their
schedule on Thursday when they travel to
Clewiston to meet the Tigers.
