Sheriff stamps OK

on jail mail policy

Inmates limited to
postcards except for
legal correspondence
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Although a new mail policy
will save the Okeechobee County
Jail around $9,000 a year in post-
age, it has not been received fa-
vorably by inmates.
The new policy goes into ef-
fect Feb. 1 and will limit all gen-
eral correspondence to plain
pre-stamped postcards. Only
privileged or legal mail will be al-
lowed to be sent via envelopes.
This means an inmate will still be
able to correspond with his/her
attorney, but the envelope will
have to have the legitimate ad-
dress of the legal firm.
Any other mail contained in
envelopes will be returned to the

Besides the cost savings, Jail
Administrator Ronnie White said
the policy will also cut down on
the amount of illegal items com-
ing into the jail.
A petition from inmates who
oppose the change has been
given to Mr. White. A copy of that
petition, along with a letter, was
sent to the Okeechobee News by
inmate David Reed. The petition
contained 21 signatures, includ-
ing Reed's. All of the inmates
who signed the petition are in the
same high-risk dorm as Reed.
When interviewed for this ar-
ticle on Wednesday, Jan. 26, Mr.
White said there were 231 in-
mates in the county jail.
The petition asks that the new
policy be altered to allow inmates
who pay the proper postage to
put their correspondence into
envelopes. It goes on to say if Mr.
White and Sheriff Paul May refuse

One of the two new chambers
of commerce in Okeechobee got
off to a good start Wednesday,
Jan. 26 when approximately 150
people gathered at the William-
son Conference Center for a kick-
off celebration for the Chamber of
Commerce of Okeechobee Coun-
ty. This chamber is closely aligned
with the Business Development

Board (BDB) and Okeechobee

Chamber president Terry
Burroughs said that some time
around last September some
business leaders approached him
to see if the BDB would create a

Planners consider transportation needs

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
At their meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 25 the
Okeechobee County Planning Board dis-
cussed the county's long-range transporta-
tion plan. This plan suggests road improve-
ments and new roads ten and twenty five
years into the future based on population
projections and traffic patterns.
At a workshop last month planning offi-
cial Bill Royce asked board members to rank
proposed projects. At Tuesday's meeting the
board discussed those rankings. The pro-
posals for 2020 included the four-laneing of
S.R. 710 from S.R. 70 E. to S.E. 40th Avenue,
the extension of S.R. 710 to U.S. 441 N. and

the four-laneing of S.R. 70 W. from U.S. 98 to
S.W 24th Avenue. The plan for 2035 called
for a beltway, to be built around the city in
segments, from 441 S.E. northwest to 441 N.
then southwest to S.R. 78, four-laneing of
S.R. 710 to the Martin County line, extension
of S.E. 16th Street to S.W. 40th Avenue and
extension of S.E. 18th Terrace to S.R. 70 E.
The board asked Mr. Royce to print up
maps showing their rankings to be reviewed
at next month's meeting. At that time the
board is expected to make recommenda-
tions for future improvements to the county
Turning to other business, the board
granted a request from E & E Automotive
Clinic, Inc. for a special exception to allow

for a garage in a commercial zoning district
at 3431 U.S. 441 N. The applicant currently
operates a garage at 3585 U.S. 441 N.
In the other item on the agenda the
board recommended that the county conm-
missioner grant a change in zoning from the
current residential mixed to neighborhood
commercial-2 at 9857 U.S. 441 N. The appli-
cants, the William Jason Tomlinson Living
Trust, indicated on the application that the
reason for the change was "future develop-
ment." A second public hearing for this zon-
ing change will be held before the county
commission on Feb. 10.

Mental health programs available for children

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Jo Norris of New Horizon's Mental Health
Center spoke about the programs they offer
Okeechobee at this week's Community Col-
laborative Council meeting. She presented
a video of the substance abuse and mental
health programs they offer to children. They
recently opened the Frances Langford Chil-
dren's Treatment Center on the Treasure
Coast on Sept. 16, 2010. This allows children
to get assistance locally and is much more
convenient for Okeechobee families in need
of services.
Ms. Norris said the services to children
have improved dramatically over the past
few years. In the past children in crisis had
to go to Orlando, Melbourne or Palm Beach
County. There were just three beds in the
four county Treasure Coast region before
the new Langford facility. Transportation
was also an issue.
The center is a crisis stabilization unit.
It is for youths ages 5-17. It handles Baker
Act children and children with addictions to
drugs. Okeechobee also has youth counsel-
ors for after care treatment.
Okeechobee County held a fund raiser
to help raise $18,000 that named a room
at the new facility after Dr. Brown. Another
$40,000 was raised from Okeechobee after
that fund raiser.
Ms. Langford was a wealthy actress who
lived on the Treasure Coast. Her family do-
nated a huge endowment up to $3 million
for the new center. They match dollar for
dollar all the donations up to $3 million.
The facility now has 10 beds for children.
"It is sad to see the beds are full, but good to
see that we projected that there was a need
and the need is being met," she said.
Okeechobee sent 33 children to the facil-
ity from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. A total
of 223 children were served by New Hori-
zons. They also provide a drug counseling
program at New Endeavor High School.
Local teen pregnancy rates
are fifth highest in the state
Mike Davis of the Okeechobee Healthy
Start Coalition presented the latest teen
pregnancy statistics for Okeechobee County.
There were 73 births to teens ages 15 to 19
in 2010. There was 102 in 2009, 99 in 2008.
In 2009, Okeechobee was fifth in the state at

2.8 percent birth rate among teens this age.
In 2009 there was one birth to a 14 year
old, and five to 15 year olds. Repeat teen
births totaled 24 in 2007, 22 in 2008, 20 in
2009, and nine in 2010.
"What we are doing is making an impact
because you can see the decrease," he add-
ed. Okeechobee dropped from 12th to 54th
in the state in the past three years in repeat
teen births.
The annual Tween Summit, educational
baby showers, life skill instruction classes,
and other events involve Healthy Start each
year. Mr. Davis said the On Track program to
help teen parents make better choices in re-

lationships and set goals. They hold monthly
workshop that discusses goal setting, col-
lege and career prep and other things.
They provide tutoring services, connect
teens to community resources and servic-
es, and provide educational planning, and
other programs. Over 64 percent of students
graduate from high school in this program,
slightly below the state average.
Jesse Smith, who handles the Teen Dads
program said teen dads only neglect their re-
sponsibility because they feel overwhelmed
and unprepared for fatherhood. Infants with-
out an involved father are 2.3 times more
likely to die in the first year.

Future of bass tournaments questioned

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!

Flying mattress
* I witnessed a queen size mattress flying
through the air with a 250 pound man on it.
The man hit the road just in front of me he
was clinging to the mattress just before his
body hit the road. It seems the game plan
was to load a queen size mattress on the
back of the truck and use the man to hold it
down during transport. This might work well
if the weight to air speed had been checked.
There should have been a warning label on
the mattress warning that the mattress will
fly and that it should be secured with some-
thing that ties down the mattress.
* Maybe the high school kids could try
this for a science project. How much weight
does it take to keep a mattress on the back of
a pickup truck at varying speeds? Of course
I would hope they would not use people as
the weight! I am wondering about the wis-
dom of the driver who was going 50 mph
with a guy on the mattress in the back of the
* How is it legal for someone to ride in
the back of the pickup unsecured, on top of
a mattress ... but if he had been in the cab of
the truck he could be ticketed if he doesn't
wear a seat belt?

Fines and enforcement
* Another way to earn much needed
money. Sit outside the schools and day-
cares and see how many children have no
seat belts or car seats. Maybe hefty fines will
cause them to secure their children.

Mount Trashmore money:
$1.5 million
* The money was given instead of land
as part of the long-term deal where waste
management took over the county landfill.
So I think the county should keep the money
in the bank earning some interest until they
actually need land and have a particular site
in mind that they have a need and a use for.
I don't think it should be used for anything

Food stamps
* It is like anything else-the government
cannot regulate common sense. But I agree
they need to take some things off the list of
things you can buy. My biggest pet peeve is
sugared drinks, sodas and candy. I see par-
ents load their kids up on junk food and then
wonder why their teeth are decayed.
* Food stamps at restaurants is absolute-
ly idiotic. I have them and when it comes
to food shopping I do my absolute best
to make every cent go as far as I can. Clip
coupons, BOGO at our three major stores,
sale items, and freeze things for later. I am
so grateful for this program. It is people
that are taking advantage of it and will ruin
it for the ones who cannot make it without
it. It has been a miracle for my son and I. I
have seen people buy subs, bakery cakes,
ice cream cakes, cases of soda, and expen-
sive deli meats/cheeses. It is not right. How
many other people got denied that need it
to feed their children/families? Because you
were wasting money on items that are over-
excessive and indulgent. Shame on you.
* I don't like standing in line at the store
watching them load up on a cart full of crab
legs and then pay with food stamps. They
eat better than I do. Now they are going to
allow fast food, the most unhealthiest food
there is. And all the kids will get even fatter.
My goodness, what a joke. Up goes obesity
and health care bills for Medicaid.
* I've always thought food stamps were

Driver's licenses
* When I read the story in the Sunday pa-
per about the new requirements for identifi-
cation to renew a driver's license, I was glad
to hear the government is doing something
to combat all of the fake IDs being used.
It's about time they made it tougher to get
a driver's license. People who are not in the
country legally should not be given a license
to drive.
* It was just a little crazy when my hus-
band went to renew his license last month.
He had gotten a birth certificate from his
state of birth when he applied for his Social
Security. They accepted it without a problem
but the driver's license office would not ac-
cept it. They said it was not a certified docu-
ment so he had to once again apply for a
certified birth certificate. It would seem that
if one government agency accepts some-
thing that another would do the same. Social
Security accepted the document as certified
but driver's license would not.

By Bob Wattendorf
In surveying anglers about a proposed
Long-term Black Bass Management Plan,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Division of Fresh-
water Fisheries Management learned that
people have opposing views about fishing
Ray Scott, founder of the Bass Anglers
Sportsman Society, brought a network of
large, competitive bass tournaments to re-
ality and attracted millions of anglers to the
sport, enhancing their understanding and
enjoyment of what has become America's
most-sought recreational fish. Along the
way, tournament groups helped promote
catch-and-release fishing and educated the
public about conservation issues. However,
many anglers feel tournaments exploit the
resource and cause congestion at ramps.
They are also concerned with bass that die
after release and, especially, the impact of
interfering with bedding bass.
One angler said tournaments shouldn't
be continued if they don't overwhelmingly
benefit the state. Someone else held the op-
posite view: that high-profile tournaments
draw worldwide attention to Florida's fish-
eries, boost local economies, and provide
great public relations to the bass fishing
Florida offers.
A third survey participant said that during
and after weigh-ins, bass are kept out of the
water far too long. "Go to a tournament site
the next morning and look at all the dead
bass floating in the water," the participant
FWC staff, in drafting the Black Bass Man-
agement Plan, is considering another aspect
of holding tournaments: the pros and cons
of allowing bass tournaments to be tempo-
rarily exempt from size limits. A summary of
those discussion points are provided below.

Continue tournament
Competitive bass tournament angling is
very popular in Florida and has profound
economic impacts locally and statewide.
For example, the 2005 BassMaster Classic
on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes generated
an estimated $25 million for the community
during the three-day event. Some premier
largemouth bass fisheries in Florida (e.g., Is-
tokpoga, Orange, Walk-in-Water) have pro-
tective slot limits (15-24 inches) that would
restrict tournament anglers from maximiz-

ing their daily weight.
Because most tournaments, including
small clubs, penalize anglers for dead fish,
tournament anglers try to take very good
care of their fish. Therefore, the FWC pro-
vides exemptions to size restrictions (but
not bag limits) to allow tournament anglers
to temporarily possess these fish. Permitted
tournament anglers must follow strict per-
mit requirements, including releasing all fish
after weigh-in and any dead fish must be
donated to charity or research. Tournament
angling depends on temporary exemptions
to be competitive. So, for economic and
social reasons, exemptions should be con-
tinued, since they don't hurt the resource,
compared with allowing these same anglers
to harvest their catch.

Discontinue tournament
Many anglers think it is unjust for tourna-
ment participants to get even a temporary
exemption from designated size limits. Har-
vest restrictions are set to manage a fishery
based on a stated objective. Research from
the University of Florida and elsewhere has
shown that tournament-associated mortality
could harm a fishery and prevent managers
from meeting objectives. Tournament-asso-
ciated mortality has been found to average
26-28 percent, and modeling effects of this
mortality show that, under certain circum-
stances, it could affect the sizes of fish avail-
able for anglers. Thus, all anglers should
follow size restrictions to ensure objectives
are met.
Given that both sides have valid points,
the FWC continues to review the impact of
tournaments. It studied them in the 1980s
and again in the '90s and found no significant
impacts. An FWC subteam is looking at the
tournament issue again, as is its technical as-
sistance group of stakeholders representing
various groups that use these fisheries or are
affected by management decisions.
The FWC's No. 1 objective is to ensure
sustainable bass populations. Tournaments
won't affect that, but they could alter the
quality of a local fishery. Moreover, this is a
resource-allocation issue, so sharing of pub-
lic resources in an equitable manner and
economic and social considerations need to
be weighed.
Recommendations have not been fi-
nalized, and people can still contribute by

bass fishing at www.surveymonkey.com/s/

Front provides spike in

January rainfall amounts

Despite Tuesday night rain-
fall boost, deficit remains
for 2010-2011 dry season
WEST PALM BEACH-A fast-moving cold
front that pushed across South Florida on
Tuesday night provided much-needed rain-
fall to the region, with some areas receiving
nearly 1.5 inches overnight.
Rainfall for the last 24 hours averaged
1.11 inches across the 16-county region of
the South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD). The Southwest Coast and
the Kissimmee Basin recorded the highest
rainfall totals over that time.
With five days left in the month, Janu-
ary's rainfall total now stands at 2.36 inches,
which is 131 percent of the historical aver-
age for this point in the month.
Lake Okeechobee received more than
an inch of rain during the last 24 hours. The
lake is currently 12.41 feet above sea level,
or about two feet below its historical aver-
age for this time of year.
The dry season remains in an overall
rainfall slump, with 4.78 inches registered
since the beginning of November, or only
74 percent of the historical average. The dry
season was preceded by the driest October
since the District began record keeping in
1932, with only 0.55 inches of rain for a defi-
cit of more than 3 inches for the month.

With a significant La Niia effect still in
place, the long-term rainfall forecast calls for
a continuation of drier-than-average condi-
tions for the remainder of the dry season.
The district continues to closely monitor wa-
ter levels and is urging residents and busi-
nesses to conserve water and follow land-
scape irrigation conservation measures in

Balance is important

for overall good health

Have you ever marveled as a gymnast
nimbly flips across a balance beam? It
seems amazing that an athlete can master
such a narrow piece of equipment and still
look so graceful.
Maintaining good balance is not just for
gymnasts, however. Balance is as critical to
your health as flexibility and core strength,
and it's vital for preventing falls, avoiding in-
juries, and keeping you strong.
You use balance every day: to carry in
the groceries, hoist up your toddler, or go
up steps. You probably take your sense of
balance for granted, but if you didn't have
it, you'd find that basic tasks would become
very difficult.
Good balance begins with your spinal
cord. Information is carried up and down
the spine, resulting in voluntary and involun-
tary movements. The better your balance-
the better your reflexes.
You may begin to lose your sense of bal-
ance as you age, or you may find it compro-
mised due to an injury. Whatever the case,
it's important to try to regain it. Here are
some suggestions.
Stand on one foot: With your feet
shoulder-width apart, slowly lift one leg as
high as you comfortably can. Close your
eyes and try to maintain this position for
at least 30 seconds; then switch legs. Use a

wall for support if you need to.
Walk heel-to-toe: Hold your arms out
to the side, shoulder height, and walk heel-
to-toe across a room. You can start with just
a few steps if necessary, and it helps to stare
at an object straight ahead of you.
Use a stability ball: There are many
exercises you can do while using a stability
ball. Regular practice will increase your bal-
ance and strengthen your core. You can also
try sitting on one of these balls while you
watch TV or work on a computer.
Try yoga, tai chi, or Pilates: These
activities incorporate many moves that test
and improve balance. Try a beginner's class
if you're unsure of proper movement and
If your loss of balance is problematic,
you may want to investigate balance retrain-
ing, which is offered at many rehabilitation
centers. Talk to your doctor about what's
right for you. You'll find that improved bal-
ance will help in sports such as golf, tennis,
skating, and basketball. It will also help you
stand on a ladder or carry a laundry basket!

OCSO deputies, dispatchers

earn job-well-done honors

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) deputies and dispatchers were hon-
ored recently for their handling of a danger-
ous situation that ended with the arrest of a
man who had loaded guns within his reach.
In recommending the recognition, OCSO
Lieutenant K.J. Ammons said members of
OCSO road patrol Squad A and the dispatch-
ers on duty "... exercised great control and
professionalism dealing with a suspect."
The suspect-Corey J. Hanzow, 32,-is
being held in the Okeechobee County Jail
on felony charges of possession of a firearm
by a convicted felon and introduction of con-
traband (weapon) into a state correctional
facility. He is also charged with the misde-
meanors of resisting a law enforcement of-
ficer without violence and leaving the scene
of an accident with property damage.
Jail records show that his total bond is
On Nov. 21, 2010, Hanzow reportedly
rammed his pickup truck into the gate at the
Okeechobee Correctional Institute. He then
fled to the Level 10 juvenile facility where he
stopped in the parking lot around 1 a.m., ac-
cording to an OCSO arrest report. He was
later arrested at the scene.
In a Jan. 21, 2011, ceremony at the
sheriff's office Sheriff Paul May recognized
Squad A members: Deputy Sergeant Brian
Hagan, Corporal Paul Ferrell, Deputy James
Hartsfield, Deputy Ann Durbin, Deputy
Yamil Astacio and Deputy John Hazy. Com-
munications personnel who were honored
were: Corporal Liz Kelly, Duty Officer Karla
Pittman, Kelly Lancaster and Natalie Taylor.
"The above named communication
personnel remained calm and professional
throughout this situation and had all per-
tinent information on hand before being
asked for it," wrote Lt. Ammons.

After Hanzow had stopped, Deputy Harts-
field approached the truck and knocked on
the driver's side window. Hanzow's only re-
sponse, stated OCSO reports, was to mock
the deputy by knocking on the window. He
refused to get out of his pickup when told to
do so, stated the report.
Sgt. Hagan, Cpl. Ferrell and Deputy Asta-
cio then approached the vehicle by using a
shield. Several times they ordered Hanzow
to open the vehicle's door and get out, but
he reportedly refused.
Finally, an order was given to break out
the passenger-side window and unlock that
door. When the deputies broke out the win-
dow, Hanzow allegedly revved up the truck's
motor and tried to put the vehicle into gear.
But he forgot to depress the brake pedal first,
so the truck wouldn't go into gear, stated the
The report goes on to state that Hanzow
was tased, then taken into custody by depu-
ties Durbin and Hartsfield.
Inside the truck, the deputies allegedly
found a loaded .223 caliber rifle and a .22
caliber rifle. Both guns were within Han-
zow's reach, the report stated.
"The members of A squad exercised re-
straint and conducted themselves in a very
professional manner in dealing with this
crisis," Lt. Ammons penned in his recom-
A records check showed that Hanzow
served nearly five years in prison after being
found guilty in Broward County of attempt-
ed robbery, attempted burglary of an occu-
pied conveyance and two counts of grand
theft. He began his prison sentence on Oct.
29, 2002, and released from prison on Sept.
In honoring the deputies and communi-
cations personnel, Sheriff May said: "I would
like to thank you for a job well done and for
your loyal dedication and commitment to
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office."

Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office Deputy Sergeant Brian Hagan (right) ac-
cepted a certificate from Sheriff Paul May (left) on Jan. 21 that recognized him
and other members of Squad A for the way they handled a dangerous situa-
tion and a subsequent arrest on Nov. 21, 2010. The certificate also honored the
communications officers "who remained calm and professional" and provided
valuable information to those deputies.

Brahmans blank Suncoast; advance to finals

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Hunter Pritchard scored in the first few
minutes and Diego Rodriguez scored late in
the second half, both on unassisted goals, to
lead Okeechobee High School to the finals
of the District 14-4A Tournament with a 2-0
victory over Suncoast Wednesday night.
Okeechobee will face Fort Pierce, a 3-2
winner over Jensen Beach in the other semi-
final in a match at Brahman stadium Friday
night at 7 p.m.
Brahman Coach Lonnie Sears said the
team has played with a lot of energy in this
tournament and really showed off the talent
they possess, "Suncoast was a team I was
worried about. The guys really have played
like everything is on the line. If we play with
that kind of energy we are talented enough
to defeat anybody."
Okeechobee had gone through a lull in
early January but has picked it up in the past
10 days. Coach Sears said it appeared his
team has peaked at the right time.

"Our three defense men led by Javier
Garcia have been leading the way. Our mid
fielders have also done a great job on de-
fense. It's been a great combination," he
Sears also praised Rodriguez who sur-
vived a demotion to the junior varsity team
earlier in the year to regain his starting role at
forward. He said Diego showed a lot of heart
and character and has played unbelievable
in recent matches.
Serafin Espinoza had two saves in the
Brahman net. It was a physical battle as the
referees allowed some rough play at both
ends of the field.
Okeechobee insured themselves of a re-
gional match for the second year in a row
and for the third time in four years with
the victory on Wednesday. They will play a
school from the Space Coast region.

OHS wrestling team defeats Sebastian River

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School wrestlers cel-
ebrated their senior night with a come-from-
behind 49-30 victory over the Sebastian River
Sharks Wednesday at the Brahman gym.
Seniors Vance Wilkerson, Donald Bryan,
Brant Harden, and Harrison O'Connor led
the way with victories as Okeechobee (16-5)
ended the regular season on a high note.
"A couple of things didn't go our way at
first but the boys put it together," Brahman

Coach Bruce Jahner said, "I told the seniors,
let's go out with a bang and finish the way
we should. All of the seniors came through
with big wins tonight."
Vance Wilkerson pinned Sage Mitchell in
a competitive match at 125 pounds after Alex
Schmidt pinned Okeechobee's Ben Levins
to start the match. Bryan Levins added a vic-
tory on points, 12-2, over Eddie Finnetti after
Okeechobee fell behind 24-6.
Bryan got Okeechobee within six points
with a pin over Chris Mayers. He said it felt

good to get a win in his final match at home,
"I just had to fight back. Districts, regional
and state are where it's at. I have one more
week to prepare for districts."
Jahner also praised some of his younger
wrestlers who provided a lift for the team.
Justin Morgan won his match at 160 pounds
by pin, and John Kemp pinned Curtis Cren-
shaw at 189 pounds.
Okeechobee also got wins by Cody Grif-
fith at 106 pounds via pin and Daniel Jansen
at 112 pounds by forfeit.
Brant Harden pinned Daniel Avila at 215
pounds and Harrison O'Connor nipped Gor-
don Taylor 3-2 in the heavyweight bout.
Coach Jahner said there was a lot of emo-
tion as the seniors said goodbye to the gym
they've wrestled in for the past four years. "It
was a real good time. I like to see the seniors
come out and show that leadership. I'm re-
ally proud of them."
Okeechobee wrestles in the District Tour-
nament next Friday at Fort Pierce Central.
Coach Jahner predicted Okeechobee will
compete with some tough squads like Fort
Pierce Central and Jensen Beach. "We'll go
out there and you never know. It you put
a good weekend together I've seen crazier
things happen. At this time of year it comes
down to who is ready to wrestle."

Bryan and Wilkerson probably have the
best chances of qualifying for the regional
tournament although several Brahmans will
likely be in the mix.
Bryan said he has beaten everyone in
the district that he has wrestled this year. He
said senior night turned out just like he had
dreamed and that he will have a lot of great
memories of his high school career. "Every-
body wrestled really hard for the last match
of the season. They left it all out there. It defi-
nitely is a bittersweet feeling."

Donald Bryan got a first round pin
over Chris Mayers of Sebastian River

OHS boys basketball team plays Port St. Lucie

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee played neck and neck with
Port St. Lucie for one half of play Tuesday night
but fell victim to a Jaguar run in the quarter as
the Brahmans fell 66-46 in high school boys
basketball action at Port St. Lucie.

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Berean Christian built a 10 point lead
in the first quarter and went on from there
to defeat Okeechobee 45-30 in girl's high
school basketball action Monday night in
West Palm Beach.
Jaide Micco had a career high 14 points
to lead Okeechobee. Ami Edwards had
eight points and nine rebounds and Beth-
any Stuart had 10 rebounds for Okeecho-
bee. Lynn Barber led BC with 11 points.
The Brahmans trailed 30-10 at the half
but played much better in the second half
as they outscored the Lady Bulldogs 20-17
in the second half.
Brahman Coach Erin Morrow said her
team continues to have issues in the first
half, "We came out slow and lackadaisical.



Michael Hernandez led Okeechobee with
11 points while Frank Martin had 22 points
for PSL, (8-10). Martin hit a key three point
basket at the first half buzzer to give the Jag-
uars a 26-23 half time lead.
Brahman Coach Bryan Van Camp said
his team fell behind by 10 points in the first
quarter but battled back to tie the score at 23-

The first half looked like we were going in
slow motion."
Morrow said the Bulldogs were hot
from the field in the first half as the hit well
over 50 percent of their shots. Okeechobee
also didn't rebound like they should and
didn't pass the ball well on offense.
"We came out in the second half and
outscored our opponent. We switched to
a man to man defense and that helped us
produce some steals and fast break oppor-
tunities," she added.
Morrow praised Micco who has only a
few games of varsity experience. She hit a
couple of jumpers and the team looked to
drive to the hoop more.
"We sure played with a better rhythm
in the second half. Unfortunately it was too
little, too late. We'll look to come out stron-
ger in our next game," she said.

23 late in the first half. He said Martin's bas-
ket gave PSL momentum and Okeechobee
couldn't respond in the second half.
"It was hard to match their intensity. I
think the team looked tired. It was a game
where we really fought against ourselves and
didn't have enough energy," he said.
Van Camp said the Brahman defense kept
his team in the game in the first half. He said
he was proud the team fought back from a
10 point deficit.
"Our defense kept us in it. Port St. Lucie

Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School girl's basketball
won for the sixth time this season with an
impressive effort at Clewiston High School
on Tuesday night, 56-27.
Jaryaca Baker had 14 points and eight re-
bounds and Ami Edwards added 12 points
and 14 rebounds for the Brahmans.
Okeechobee also played tight aggressive
defense all night long and held the Tigers to
one shot on most of their possessions.
Brahman Coach Erin Morrow also
praised her team for being more aggressive
on the offensive end of the court, "We did
a much better job offensively of getting the
ball down the court quickly and attacking
the hoop."
Morrow said the team worked on pass-
ing the ball and working the offense. Still
she noted the team forces too many low
percentage shots.

the inmate's request, "we will file a civil ac-
tion against the sheriff's office in the federal
courts... ."
"I've seen the petition," said Mr. White.
"This is something we're doing to save mon-
ey for the county, improve safety for our of-
ficers and sanitation for the facility. I person-
ally went to every dorm and told the inmates
we were doing this."
He went on to say that he has not talked
to Reed about the petition.
"I knew he (Reed) had some problems.
He has filed a couple of grievances with me,
the sheriff and Mr. White," said Major Noel
Stephen of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO).
The major went on to add that the policy
is "all about cost this is just another cost-
saving measure."
Sheriff May was out of town at a confer-
ence and not available to comment.
As for the other items being sent inmates,
Mr. White said his employees continue to
find contraband in the mail on a daily ba-
sis-including perfume, powder, tobacco
and drugs.
"The most serious things are drugs," he
said. "People are soaking letters in meth-
amphetamine and putting them in the mail.
We've even intercepted phone calls where
the inmates are telling persons to put drugs
under the stamp."
He explained that the inmate then chews
on the letter to extract the meth.

Mr. White added that birthday cards have
been sent to inmates that contained either
tobacco products or marijuana.
A detective with the Okeechobee Narcot-
ics Task Force said any drug that can be liq-
uefied can be sent in this manner.
"They can soak letters in basically any-
thing," the detective said.
The new policy becomes a cost-saving
measure primarily because indigent inmates
will no longer be getting two free .42-cent
stamps each week. Instead, they will now
get two postcards every other week.
Mr. White explained that an inmate who
doesn't have at least .50 cents in their can-
teen account falls into the indigent category.
On average, he added, about one-third of
the jail population is indigent.
Inmates are beating the current system,
said Mr. White, by spending their canteen
money shortly after it's put into their canteen
account. Then, because they no longer have
money in their canteen account, the jail has
to pick up the tab for stamps. The local jail
is not alone in changing this procedure. Mr.
White said jails in St. Lucie, Lake, Pasco, Ala-
chua, Monroe and Charlotte counties have
adopted similar policies. Mr. White went on
to say that family members upset with the
change went so far as to contact Florida
State Senator Joe Negron (R-District 28). A
portion of Okeechobee County is in District
But, that hasn't changed anything and the
new policy will still go into effect next week.
"The sheriff signed it (the new policy) and
he sent it to our lawyer in Fort Lauderdale
who OK'd it. We're going to stick with the
policy," said Mr. White.
