measure, document and collect human remains found there
Thursday, Dec. 16, by a hunter.


Skeletal remains
recovered near
Platt's Bluff
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The skeletal remains of a man
and some clothes were found
Thursday in an area near Platt's
Bluff known as Telex Park.
According to Detective Su-
san Morrison of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) the
remains were found by a hunter,
who contacted the sheriff's office
at 6:28 p.m. on Dec. 16.
"We went out but couldn't do
much at night," said Detective
Morrison.


She, along with other investi-
gators, crime scene technicians
and officers from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Conm-
mission (FWC) returned to the
scene Friday. OCSO crime scene
techs then began the arduous
task of measuring, documenting,
photographing and collecting the
remains.
The remains have been tenta-
tively identified by the serial num-
bers on a pacemaker found at the
scene. However, the person's iden-
tity has not been released pending
the notification of next of kin.
Detective Morrison said late Fri-
day afternoon that it will be at least
Monday, Dec. 20, before the Dis-

Students bring items for local charities


OHS gives back
Okeechobee High School students and
staff participated in an initiative they fittingly
named "OHS Gives Back." Students were
encouraged to bring in a toy, a food item,
toiletry, puzzle books, or clothing to support
organizations such as Martha's House, the
nursing homes, the animal shelter, Toys for
Tots, Real Life Children's Ranch, and Opera-
tion Shoe Box. The students rose to the occa-
sion and exceeded expectations by bringing
in countless canned goods and other items.
Okeechobee High School's vision is Ex-
cellence through PRIDE. PRIDE is an acro-
nym for Perseverance, Respect, Integrity,
Dependability, and Ethics. The students are
encouraged to exhibit these character pil-
lars, and they certainly did when they cared
enough to show support for our community
and these organizations.
Each month, students are recognized by
their teachers for exhibiting PRIDE at school.

i.,


The students enjoy a pizza party to celebrate
their perseverance, respectful manner, integ-
rity, dependability, and their ethics.


Special to the Okeechobee News/OHS
This group is looking at all the goodies
collected by OHS students for organi-
zations that give back to the commu-
nity such as Toys for Tots.

Tuesday night's concert by the OHS Band
was excellent. Wow! These kids are great,
they are going to go places. Thank you to all
of the OHS Band members for an unforget-
table evening.
Dogs attacking cats
On Saturday morning my kids looked
out the front window to see a pack of dogs de-
stroy their kitten! Three dogs-a large brindle
bulldog, medium shepherd mixed dog, and
a smaller white dog-running wild through
the neighborhood came onto our porch and
killed the kitten. I ran outside to run them off.
The two bigger ones had went on but the
smaller dog was under the car growling at
me. I called the city police was told Animal
Control would be calling me back. They did
about 45 minutes later. I explained to them
that neighbor kids had sticks after the dogs
because they had killed their cat also. Animal
Control said they would be out. We never
saw the first sign of Animal Control. What
if a child was walking their dog or playing
with their cat? The dogs would no doubt hurt
a child. This is not the first time these dogs
have killed. When will they stop?


That's what happens when you want
help, you got to take the bull by the horns
and take care of things yourself.
Document your tries to contact Animal
Control, who you spoke with and what ac-
tions were taken. That way when you shoot
the dogs because they are out of control,
you won't be arrested. Take pictures too and
video if you can.
This also happened to us, but when
we lived in Miami. A pit bull came on to
our porch and dragged our beautiful cat
off the porch and killed it. I am surprised
that animal control did not respond. Call
them again, and explain the situation ...
I am sure they will respond and help with
the situation. Not knowing the history of the
animals, I would think at least a citation can
be written against the owners of the dogs,
and FORCE the owners to take responsibility
for their dogs.
It is sad to see anyone's pet killed.
I am pretty sure those kids thought it
was pretty bad watching their kitten torn
to pieces as well. The dogs have killed for
sport. They will not stop-time to put them
down.
There are some dogs that are friendly to
people but not to other animals. If the dog is
loose and attacking animals in the neighbor-
hood I say just shoot it. There was a pit bull
that was friendly to people that lived across
the street from me that got out and attacked
my little Pom and I had to fight the dog phys-
ically off mine and when I got my dog in the
house I got my gun went back outside and
shot it in the head. I do not feel bad about
what I did and I told my neighbors when
they got home what I had done. They were
not happy, but if you live in a neighborhood
then it is your responsibility to see your ani-
mals do not harm other animals or people.
It is ridiculous to think that just because
a dog belongs to someone it should be al-
lowed to terrorize the neighbors. I have had
the neighbors dogs up on my porch growl-
ing at me when I come out of my house.
Okeechobee County does have a leash law,
and they do try to enforce it, however, they
are overwhelmed with the amount of calls
they receive and by the amount of animals
they are getting. When it comes down to it,
if I have to, I will shoot. It is within your le-
gal right to shoot an animal that is on your
property and attacking you or your animals.
PERIOD. You do not have to be forced to live
in torment.

Call His Name JESUS
By Rev. Calvin Fryar
Pastor, Brighton Baptist Church
"Call his name JESUS." (Luke 1:31)
"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted
him, and given him a name which is above
every name. That at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of things in heaven, and
things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Je-
sus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Fa-
ther." (Philippians 2:9-11) A lock was shown
to Gotthold, constructed of rings, which were
inscribed with certain letters, and could be
turned round until the letters represented the
name "Jesus." It was only then that the lock
could be opened. The invention pleased him
beyond measure; and he exclaimed, "Oh that
I could put such a lock as this upon my heart!"
Our hearts are already locked, no doubt, but
generally with a lock of quite another kind.
Many need only to hear the words "gain,"
"honor," "pleasure," "riches," "revenge," and
their heart opens in a moment; whereas to
the Saviour and to His holly name it remains
shut. Source unknown
Our world has attempted to shut out the
Lord Jesus but His name remains to our day.
Even though every effort to remove or destroy
all memory of Jesus has failed, the world
continues to try. In Psalm 2:3-4 the psalmist
revealed the folly of the world before God
when he wrote, "Let us break their bands
asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the
Lord shall have them in derision." Then the
psalmist gives a little advice in Psalm 2:10-11
which the whole world would do good to
heed: "Be wise now therefore, 0 ye kings:
be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve
the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trem-
bling." The world refused the advice of the
psalmist and continues to do so until our day.
Men tried to remove all evidence of Jesus by
removing His life but God raised Him up to
sit on His right hand of power; they tried to
removed His name, but God has exalted it
above every name; and now, evil men have
tried to remove His deity, but God will bring
every man to his knees before Him.
The angel of God was sent before His birth
to name Him; He must be named "Jesus."
You may ask, "Why must He be named Je-
sus? Why was His name so important that an
angel was sent to name Him?"
His name is personal and we must use
it. It made Him a person and knowable. Un-
like the world's many gods, His name singles
Him out and brings Him into our lives as a
real person.

their own intelligent decisions about public issues.


A six-year-old boy, separated from his
mother in a supermarket, began to call franti-
cally for "Martha! Martha! Martha!" That was
his mother's name and she came running to
him quickly. "But, honey, she admonished,
"You shouldn't call me 'Martha,' I'm 'Mother'
to you."
"Yes, I know," he answered, "but this store
is full of mothers." "Encyclopaedia of 15,000
Illustrations"
This world is full of gods, but there is only
one Jesus Christ.
His name is powerful-it is powerful to
save from sin. In Acts 4:12, the Bible says,
"There is none other name under heaven giv-
en among men, whereby we must be saved."
Jesus Himself said, "I am the way, the truth
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me." (John 14:6) In Matthew 1:21 we
are told that "he shall save his people from
their sins." You must be saved from sin not in
sin as some seem to imagine. The latter is like
saving a man from drowning by keeping him
under the water which is destroying him; or
like recovering a man from sickness by leav-
ing him under the malady which constitutes
the complain.
Modern man reminds me of the parable
told by the Danish philosopher Keirkegaard,
who tells a parable of a theater where a va-
riety show is proceeding. Each turn is more
fantastic than the last, and is applauded by
the audience. Suddenly the manager comes
forward. He apologizes for the interruption.
But the theater is on fire, and he begs his pa-
trons to leave in an orderly fashion. The au-
dience thinks this is the most amusing turn
of the evening, and cheer thunderously. The
manager again implores them to leave the
burning building. Again, he is applauded vig-
orously. At last he can do no more. The fire
races through the whole building and the fun-
loving audience with it. "And so," concluded
Kierkegaard, "will our age, I sometimes think,
go down in fiery destruction to the applause
of a house of cheering spectators." "Encyclo-
pedia of 15,000 Illustrations"
Wherever Alexander the great encamped
with his army before a fortified city and laid
seize to it, he caused to be set up a great lan-
tern, which was kept lighted day and night.
This was the signal to the besieged, mean-
ing that as long as the lamp burned they had
time to save themselves by surrender, but
once the light was extinguished, the city and
all that was in it, would be irrevocably given
over to destruction. And the conqueror kept
his word with terrible consistency "Encyclo-
pedia of 1,5000 Illustrations"
God has given us a time of grace, and as
long as the mercy lamp is lit, God will receive
us in the name of His Son, Jesus. Why not
receive Him today?

will begin their examination of the remains.
It will be sometime after that when they will
issue an official cause of death.
OCSO Detective Captain John Rhoden
said it's not yet known how long the body
had been there, but by the extensive amount
of decomposition he said "it's been there a
while."
He also did not know how the man got

WELL
Continued From Page 1

letter of exoneration he requested.
In May of 2002 Mr. DeCarlo received a
contract from the county to drill an injec-
tion well at the sports complex. A source
well was drilled to the level below the level
of potable water to bring this water to the
surface to heat the swimming pool. The re-
turn well was to take this water back to the
same level; it came from a closed loop. The
well failed to function as desired. As a result
of lengthy litigation involving a great deal of
technical testimony, Mr. DeCarlo received a
$150,000 judgement from the county.
Even though County Administrator Lyn-
don Bonner said there was no record of it,
Mr. DeCarlo felt he was owed a letter of ex-
oneration.
A letter from Barry Roderman, Mr. De-
Carlo's attorney, dated Feb. 16, 2010, to
John Cook, who represented the county in
this matter stated that the settlement would
result in a payment of $150,000 to his client.
Mr. Roderman's letter goes on to state: "In
addition to the foregoing, a part of our settle-
ment is that the county will provide Ameri-
can Drilling Services, Inc., with a letter to the
effect that American Drilling Services Inc.,
drilled the well properly, that the problem
with the well developed after itwas overpres-
sured some time during the year following
its completion, that American Drilling Inc.,
was in no way responsible for the condition
of the well as it may have existed when the
Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection did its investigation."
In a reply dated Feb. 17, 2010, Mr. Cook
confirmed the monetary settlement. How-
ever, he went on to say: 'As we discussed
over the phone, the board of county com-
missioners did not make a letter to ADS or
Frank DeCarlo a condition of settlement,
and I indicated to you that no letter would
issue that appeared to be in the nature of an
apology or acknowledgement of fault by the
county."
A final settlement dated Feb. 19, 2010
states that the county will pay American
Drilling Services $150,000. However, there is
no mention of a letter of exoneration.
As of Sept. 29, 2010, the county had spent
$465,482.68 in connection with the well in-
cluding the $150,000 settlement. Mr. Decarlo
claims to have spent $400,000 in legal ser-
vices and research for his defense.
On Sept. 23, 2010, hydrogeologist David
Smith, who was hired by the county to close
the injection well reported to the commis-
sion: "During the abandonment process ,we


"At one time he could have walked across
to the island when the water was down,"
said Capt. Rhoden.
He also speculated that the person may
have caught a ride to the island with a boat-
er.
The captain added that so far, there are
no signs of foul play.
Detective Morrison said Telex Park is lo-
cated on the west side of the old portion of
the Kissimmee River, or on the east side of
the new river.


did discover that the well was not construct-
ed in compliance with the original permit.
It is not surprising it did not perform as in-
tended."
Commissioner Bryant Culpepper said
there was a settlement and that Mr. DeCarlo
believed there would be a letter of exonera-
tion.
"I fail to see why this would be a prob-
lem," stated Mr. Culpepper.
"The word exoneration never came
from the county commission," said county
administrator Lyndon Bonner. He did not
recommend such a letter. "The physical evi-
dence suggests there is something wrong,"
Mr. Bonner added. He thinks he constructed
it correctly. Unfortunately, it wasn't."
"When we tried to use it for the intended
purposes, it did not work," Mr. Bonner said
of the well.
"We still have an issue. I think this is an-
other situation of putting the cart before the
horse," Commissioner Joey Hoover said. He
said he is not ready to say the county is re-
sponsible.
Mr. Cook offered the opinion that an apol-
ogy could impact future plans on reopening
the settlement.
"I was told in the settlement I would have
a letter of exoneration," said Mr. DeCarlo. "I
think I have a good argument if you want to
take it back to court. This is out of control
and I want my letter of exoneration, It's clo-
sure to me."
"If we promised somebody something,
we need to do it," stated Mr. Betts.
"Who is we?" asked Mr. Hoover.
Mr. DeCarlo stated he has a letter from the
Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) stating that the well worked
fine in the beginning and that it was dam-
aged by over pressuring by the county.
After a lengthy discussion getting into the
technical details of injection well construc-
tion, Mr. Culpepper made a motion for the
commission to write a letter of exoneration
to Mr. DeCarlo. The motion died for lack of
a second.
In a related matter, Mr. Bonner said the
final report has been received on the closing
of the injection well. He said he was expect-
ing a letter from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection saying they were
no longer in violation due to the well. As to
the source well, Mr. Bonner said some more
work needs to be done to determine if the
well can be used or has to be abandoned.
He said it might be used for irrigation pur-
poses.

OHS boys basketball team


loses to St. Lucie West


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School lost a defensive
battle to the Eagles of St. Lucie West Centen-
nial 50-44 when the two high schools met
for a boys basketball game on Wednesday
in Port St. Lucie.
Alex Neely had 16 points including sever-
al key baskets down the stretch as the Eagles

offense."
The Brahmans were in the lead until the
last six minutes. The lead was back and forth
down the stretch. Okeechobee was forced
to foul in the final moments and the Eagles
were able to hit the free throws to seal the
win.
"We just weren't able to score down
the stretch and you have to do that in close
games," Van Camp added.
Okeechobee will play Naples Barron

Glades County anticipates growth


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Glades County Commissioners tackled
a full agenda that included further delays
in collection of impact fees, a tax break for
a marina, and the Florida Department of
Transportation five-year work plan for the
County, when they met Dec. 14 at the Glades
Court House in Moore Haven.
Office Manager for the FDOT Fort Myers
office Johnny Limbaugh presented the work
plan for Glades County state roads. The
work plan includes $2.7 million to resurface
4.3 miles on C.R. 720 from U.S. 27 east. The
state also will spend $2.8 million to resurface
sections of U.S. 27 from the Hendry County
line to Old Route 27.
The work plan also includes major road
work on State Road 78 east from Moore Ha-
ven toward Okeechobee. In 2013-2014, just


over $14 million could be spent to resurface
the road from the Herbert Hoover Dike to
Canal Boat Ramp. In 2014-2015, another
$13.5 million could be spent to resurface
from Canal Boat Ramp to the Okeechobee
County line.
Commissioner Paul Beck said with the
prospects of an intermodal logistics center,
or inland port, coming to the Lakeport area,
these road projects are a sign that the state
thinks development will occur in this area.
The work plan also proposes a bike path
on Harney Pond Road in Lakeport in 2012-
2013 at a price of $401,010.
There are also plans to pave sections of
the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail. Nearly $3
million could be set aside over the next three
years to complete the bike path and trail in
Glades County.

Okeechobee High School Football

team honored at the banquet


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
It was a night for seniors as Deforest
Shanks was named offensive most valuable
player while Erick McQueen won the defen-
sive player of the year award at the annual
Okeechobee High School Brahman foot-
ball banquet held at the Okeechobee High
School cafeteria on Dec. 9.
Shanks led the Brahmans in rushing,
rushing average, and touchdowns, five, this
year. He averaged over four yards per carry
and provided a steady influence on both of-
fense and defense this year.
"I didn't expect it because I was at the
bottom. I worked myself up to the top. I'm
glad I came through for the boys," Shanks
said.
He made huge strides from his junior to
senior year. He said he kept learning and
getting better. He noted it was tough when
times were tough but his teammates kept
him pumped up."
Alonzo Coleman took home the most im-
proved award for the offense. He came on
strong at the end of the year to score four
touchdowns. He said his secret isn't really a
secret, he just listened to what he was be-
ing told to do, "I kept listening to Coach and
lived in the moment. I wanted to make an
impact at the high school."
Coleman said future Brahmans can learn
from him because they should never give
up, and keep working hard.
McQueen led the defense with 115 tack-
les. He also forced a number of turnovers
and produced for the offense down the
stretch.
Senior David Carter took home the Brah-
man Award. He was praised for his commit-
ment to the program and the hard work and
time he put in. Carter never missed a day of
practice this year.
"I love the players and the coaches and I
do it all for them. I like being around them.
I don't ever want to leave. I felt it was worth
the effort and the commitment," he said.
Coach Jackson said Carter had a big
heart, wasn't the most athletic, but made
him very proud this year. He said football
meant a lot to Carter and that he played with
passion every play.
Carter said he will take good care of his
Brahman award and plans to dust it off all
the time and put it on his wall for his chil-
dren and grand children to see.
"Football is like no other sport in the
world. In no other sport can you get into
pads and run into another human being, I
just love it," he added.
Cody Walker was named the most im-
proved player for the defensive unit. As a
freshman he made an impact as the starter
at defensive tackle. He plans to continue
working hard in the off season and become
a team leader.
"I feel pretty good about the award. I
worked through some blood, sweat and
tears this year. I'm glad with my perfor-
mance this season," he added.


Walker said he has always had a passion
for football. He has played since he was
old enough to walk. He said a lot of players
will return next year and he predicted great
things for the future.
Coach Jackson said it was a great ac-
complishment for his team to improve from
(0-10) to (3-8). He gave small plaques to
each of the 12 seniors on this year's team
that included their number. He also thanked
the local churches, individuals, businesses,
and civic groups that helped the team this
year with pregame meals, volunteer work,
and monetary and in kind donations.
"It was really a great group this year. It
wasn't as hard this year as the kids knew
the expectations. This was a group of young
men that wanted more than they had the
previous year. We put in the work, fell short
of some of our goals, but we had a ball with
them," he noted.
Jackson challenged the underclassmen
to follow the example the senior class had
shown this year in work ethic and leadership
and take the program to the next level. His
goal is to win five district games next year
and host a playoff game at Brahman sta-
dium.
"Right now I feel we are headed in the
right direction. I wish we had a group of 12-
15 seniors returning next year. Our strength
and our weakness will be our youth. We do
have a group of kids with a ton of experi-
ence. The nucleus that we need will be there
for us," he added.
Okeechobee will also play in a new Dis-
trict next year as they become a 6A school
in football for the first time. Other teams in
District 14-6A will be South Fork, Sebastian
River, Olympic Heights, Palm Beach Lakes,
and Forest Hills.
"We've played against most of those
teams so they won't be a big surprise for us.
Nothing ever comes easy for Okeechobee.
We just have to put the work in during the
week. That makes it easier on Friday," he
added.

OHS girls soccer team


loses to Martin County


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Kaitlynn Hollowell and Lissa Aderholdt
had two goals as Martin County (5-7) defeat-
ed Okeechobee High School, 5-0, in girl's
high school soccer action Wednesday night
in Stuart.
Temperatures were cold as the two teams
raced around the field in a match that was
closer than the score indicated.
Temperatures dipped into the upper 40s
at the end of the contest.
Brahman Coach Julie Bohannon said
Martin County was a solid team that was
able to control the ball in the Okeechobee
end of the field.


"They pushed us into a defensive mode.
We gave up four goals in the first half but
we came back strong after a halftime pep
talk and allowed just one goal in the second
half," she said.
Bohannon has tweaked the lineup a bit
to see if she can get more production from
the girls. She said they played much better
in the second half thanks to some lineup
changes. LeAnna Cotton played goal keeper
in the second half and allowed just one goal.
Her goals against average of 2.25 have been
solid this year. Nickey Ingram had 12 steals
for the Brahman defense.
The girls are off until January.


Blown tire sparks brush fire on 70 west


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Ten fire units and 17 firemen spent close
to three hours battling a large brush fire that
broke out in the 9000 block of State Road 70
west on Wednesday.
A fire report from Lt. Robert Banfield of
Okeechobee County Fire Rescue said fire-
men saw a large thick column of smoke as
they approached the fire and saw a fast mov-
ing fire in a cattle pasture.
The flames were knocked down before
they damaged any structures. The wind
changed directions many times which add-
ed to the firemen's burden.
The cause was apparently a tractor trailer
who had pulled to the side of the road due
to a blown tire. Sparks from the tire or the
brakes on the truck caused the fire.
The Division of Forestry and Okeecho-
bee City Firemen assisted in putting out the
flames. No injuries were reported. 5,000
gallons of water was used to extinguish the
flames.
Firemen said the drought, the freeze, and
the wind have made conditions ripe for wild
fires this week.
On Tuesday two fires in the Viking Prop-
erty burned up about 41 acres. One fire kept
firemen busy for about three hours in the
22400 block of N.W 256th Street.


Paramedic Jay Curtis of Okeechobee
County Fire Rescue said 16 acres burned in
the blaze and the cause was under investi-
gation. A Division of Forestry plane and two
plows were used to put out the flames.
A 25-acre brush fire broke out near the
intersection of NE 72nd Avenue at NW 240th
Street. Firemen were on the scene there for
close to six hours on Tuesday evening. Lt.
Ron Suit said five units and eight firemen
were at the scene of that blaze. City firemen
and the Division of Forestry also assisted in
that fire fight.
Upcoming blood drives planned
Blood drives are planned for Decem-
ber and January at the following loca-
tions on these dates and times:

YMS boys hoop team still unbeaten uyhi

By Charles M. Murphy Yearling still was able to use full and half offense as they fed the ball inside for some or
Okeechobee News court pressure and cause some turnovers easy baskets. Selling?.
that led to easy points. Ochoa noted the tea couldn't practice


Yearling Middle School s boys basketLball
team has an unbeaten season going as they
have won impressively against Oslo, Gifford,
and Sebastian River this month.
Yearling blew away Oslo 50-10. Trewis-
ton Pierce had 22 points, Roshell Thomas
had 11 points, and Terrell Taylor added 10
points.
Coach Efrain Ochoa praised his defense
in this game as they played a full court press
and traps to pressure the ball and take the
lead.
Against Gifford, Trewiston Pierce had 23
points and Roshell Thomas added 14 points.
Taylor added 13 points as Yearling prevailed
60-37 at home.
Gifford was a much tougher test as their
guards handled the ball better than Oslo.


"Our defense was sloppy and we had
several missed lay-ups but our size prevailed
and allowed us to get second chance points
and offensive rebounds."
Sebastian Middle School provided a tough
test on Dec. 9, as Yearling prevailed 52-24 de-
spite a half time delay due to an overhead
light outage.
Pierce and Taylor both scored 18 points
in the game. Yearling didn't get a big lead
until the fourth quarter. Again pressure de-
fense played a key role in the game.
"We played sloppy on offense and de-
fense," Ochoa said, "Our players wanted to
run and get the fast break started but we had
a lot of turnovers."
Yearling played well in their half court


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.


in the Yearling gym that week because of
the high school science fair and instead used
the freshman campus gym. He said that hurt
their game preparations.
"The team still has a lot of growing up
to do. We need some more time together
to build chemistry. Our goal is to follow the
Yearling tradition and go undefeated. Volley-
ball and soccer have done it several times
and we hope the basketball team can join
them," he added.

Man accused of hitting wife,


beating another man with cane


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was arrested on
several charges after he re-
portedly hit his wife, beat
another man with a cane
then damaged a window
of a deputy's patrol car
with his head.
Stuart Thomas Parr, 28,
S.R. 78 W, was arrested
Thursday, Dec. 16, on a
felony charge of aggra- Stuart T.
vated battery. He was also Parr
charged with the misde-
meanors of domestic battery, battery and
two counts of criminal mischief.
Parr is being held in the Okeechobee
County Jail under a $60,000 bond.
An arrest report by Deputy Marcus Collier
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) stated that the series of incidents
apparently started with a fight between Parr
and his wife. The report stated that witness-
es heard Parr's wife screaming and saw him
hitting his wife.
Deputy Collier indicated that the woman
had some swelling on the left side of her
face.
The deputy went on to state that he found
another woman outside the couple's mobile
home who was bleeding from her arm. She


reportedly told him that when she tried to
separate Parr from his wife, the 5-foot-11,
210-pound, man then turned on her. Then,
for unknown reasons, Parr began to punch
himself in the face, added the deputy's re-
port.
Witnesses reportedly told Deputy Collier
that Parr began to bang his head against the
mobile home and broke a window with his
face.
The deputy went on to state that he also
found another man lying on the ground out-
side the couple's home. He was apparently
injured after Parr allegedly attacked him and
beat him with a metal walking cane. Deputy
Collier stated that Parr continued to hit the
man until the cane broke.
Deputy Collier placed Parr in hand re-
straints and put him in the back seat of his
OCSO patrol unit while he conducted his
investigation. While in the patrol unit, Parr
continually hit his head on the left rear win-
dow of the car until he knocked the window
out of its track, the deputy's report stated.
Parr, the two women and the injured
man were all taken to Raulerson Hospital
for treatment, the report added.

Chartier to be interim


county administrator


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Commissioners
tried to conduct all their December business
in one meeting. That resulted in a marathon
meeting that lasted until after dark and in-
cluded a laundry list of routine items.
Lynn Topal of Florida Heartland Rural
Economic Development Incentive (FHREDI),
gave the annual report for her organization.
"Broadband is the most exciting thing we
have done this year," she said. Ms. Topal also
discussed the transportation plans of FHRE-
DI. Bus service started last year between
Belle Glade and Clewiston using matching
funds. FHREDI is considering extending this
service to Labelle and Moorehaven.
Ms. Topal presented a plaque to the coun-
ty commission for their support of FHREDI.
Then it was her turn to receive accolades.
"Lynn is always a tireles, tireless worker,"
said Commissioner Joey Hoover of Ms. To-
pal who is leaving FHREDI at the end of the
year. "She has been very effective. FHREDI
has been very effective for our whole region.
I want to thank Lynn. You will be missed."
The board gave approval to the Florida
Department of Transportation Five Year Work
Program which includes improvements to
the trailhead at Okee Tantie Campground
and Marina and airport improvements. Com-
missioners also learned of two turnpike im-
provements in the county a canal guardrail
and renovation of the Fort Drum Service Pla-
za. After considerable discussion the board
approved a settlement with the airport fixed
base operator Robert Lambert. As additional
rent, the board will receive a fee for each gal-
lon of aviation fuel sold at the airport based
on the annual report of average fuel sales in
southeast Florida.
In a matter not on the agenda, the board
spent considerable time discussing a long
standing code violation at Mi-Cin Ranch due
to lights being installed without the proper
permits. The case has been through the
code magistrate process and the violations
still persist. Attorney John Cook, who is rep-
resenting the county in this matter, noted
that the owners are not paying any attention
to fines which are continuing to accrue and


the property is homesteaded so it cannot
be foreclosed on. Some possible solutions
were suggested. However, the consensus
of the board was to have staff talk with the
owners.
Deputy County Administrator Robbie
Chartier said that most constitutional offi-
cers' budgets were on track so far. She said
the supervisor of elections expenditures
were a little high because of the November
elections, but should drop off in the next re-
port.
County Administrator Lyndon Bonner
asked for ideas about selecting his replace-
ment. The consensus of the board was to
let Mrs. Chartier serve as interim. During the
interim period each commissioner could
meet with her to determine if they might
want to consider her as a permanent county
administrator. Mrs. Chartier agreed to serve
on an interim basis. Mr. Bonner said he was
finishing a report to be sent to FEMA by Dec.
31 requesting funds for hurricane repair to
Okee Tantie Campground and Marina.

OHS soccer team beats Fort Pierce Central, 3-0


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Temperatures in the upper 30s at game
time didn't seem to affect the players as
Okeechobee High School defeated Fort
Pierce Central 3-0 in a fast-paced, high-ener-
gy boy's high school soccer match Tuesday
at Brahman stadium.
The first half was played at a fever pitch
as the players raced from one end of the
field to the other and both teams had decent
chances at the net.
Okeechobee missed a couple of golden
opportunities and the Cobras as well in the
fast paced first half.
"We had some defensive breakdowns in
the first half but we fixed them in the sec-
ond half," Coach Lonnie Sears said, "We just
have to get better at scoring goals."
Goal keeper Serafin Espinoza had an-
other strong game for Okeechobee with five
saves, most of those in the first half.
Okeechobee got goals from Marcos Fon-
seca, Cristhian Toribio and Hunter Pritchard
and an assist from Sergio Vargas. Okeecho-
bee led 1-0 at the half.
"Both teams had a lot of shots in this
game but I had confidence in our goal
keeper. Most of the Cobras shots were from
a long distance and I knew he could handle
them," Sears added.
Sears said Fort Pierce has already earned
the number one seed in next month's dis-
trict tournament. Okeechobee can earn the


second seed and an easier first round op-
ponent if they win this Thursday at Lincoln
Park Academy.
"We like to win don't get me wrong but
the district games will matter the most. We
build each year for districts and we want to
win those matches," Sears said.
Okeechobee will host their annual Christ-


mas Tournament Monday, Dec. 20, and
Tuesday, Dec. 21. South Fork, Port St. Lucie
and John Carroll will also compete in the
tournament.
Okeechobee will play Monday night at 7
p.m. Games begin at 5 p.m. on both days.
Admission will be charged.
