Gina M. Hardison, 52, U.S. 441 S.E., was arrested Friday, May 11, on felony charges of scheme to defraud and grand theft. She is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail. At the time of her arrest, Hardison was already being held in the county jail following her May 8 felony arrest on a charge of defrauding an innkeeper. Her bond on that charge was set at $5,000. An arrest report by Detective Susan Morrison, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated that Hardison told the couple she was an heiress to a Gambino crime family trust fund that was supposedly worth $14 billion. She then told the couple that if they would oversee this trust fund they would be paid $5,000 a week and receive a payment of $250 million.

By Pete GawdaOkeechobee News Central Elementary School got to exhibit its best fourth grade public speakers on Tuesday, May 15, at the 4H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest. Sixteen young public speakers spoke on a variety of topics from animals such as the Great White shark and the Cracker horse, to baseball and teachers. It was evident that they had all put a lot of work into their two to three minute speeches. The three member judging panel made up of members of the community had a hard time deciding the w inners. In the end the judges decided on awarding rst place to Delaney Jones for her speech on volleyball. She was very vigorous in her delivery, demonstrating many volleyball techniques. Second place was awarded to Jillian Kennedy who gave an animated speech on cheerleading. Alize Merchant captured third place with a rst hand account of a summer vacation. All participants received a certi cate. The other participants were Cole Younger, Diana Morales, Eboni Koivunen, Halle McDuf e, Matthew Haygood, Meghann Hotmire, Ashley Snyder, Justin Comfort, Mason Burke, Austin Allen, Michael Betts, Brighton Bauman and Edmundo Cruz. This contest helps thousand of young people annually learn how to write and deliver a speech. More than 150,000 young people in over 50 Florida counties in grades 4 through 6 participated in the contest on an annual basis. Tropicana has sponsored the contest since 1989 and provides classroom material for teachers, certi cates of participation, medallions for school winners, trophies for county winners, summer camp scholarships and Tropicana orange juice refreshments for county contests.

It is a rare week when our of ce does not get a call from someone about how to obtain a pesticide applicator license. The laws and rules can be confusing at best, and frustrating to persons who want to get a new license or renew an existing one. There are some upcoming events planned for our area to help train pesticide applicators. Would you like to raise the bar? Can you diagnose "brown spots in lawns"? Are you able to distinguish key pest insects? As part of the UF/IFAS Pest Management University, a regional/statewide event will be held for landscape maintenance professionals who want to increase their skills in dealing with turfgrass insects in general and chinch bugs in particular. Basic Turfgrass Pest Management Chinch Bug edition is scheduled for Thursday, May 17, at the Indian River Research & Education Center in Fort Pierce. The cost for this hands-on workshop for spray technicians and ID cardholders is $30, which will include presentations on pesticide safety, pesticide calibration and handling, plus what to do if you are inspected. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the program will end by 5 p.m. Live programs will be led by St. Lucie Extension agents Ed Skvarch and Tim Gaver and Okeechobee Horticulture Agent Dan Culbert. They will be assisted by local Pest Management professional Dennis Schwentner of Vero Beach. In the afternoon, participants will join a teleconference presentation by UF Entomologists Eileen Buss and Jennifer Gillett-Kaufman. They will present new and updated information on the basic biology and management of key turfgrass pests, especially southern chinch bugs. Persons can register using a credit card on-line at http:// www.eventbrite.com/event/3367509311, or by calling Dan Culbert at the Okeechobee County Extension of ce at 863-763-6469. The Okeechobee Extension of ce as been approached by several persons that wish to obtain a license to apply pesticides inside buildings. This license is called Limited Governmental or Private Applicator Certi cation Structural Pest Control, and is required for all persons who need to use pesticides as part of their jobs as either public or employees of private businesses. If there is suf cient interest, the Okeechobee County Extension of ce will hold a training class locally for those that wish to prepare for the exam. The class will also be available to those that already have that license who need to earn CEUs to renew their licenses. Please contact this of ce to nd out the time and date for this class. For others questions on how obtain or renew pesticide applicator licenses for agricultural and structural applicators, fee free to consult the Okeechobee Extension webpage, http://okeechobee.ifas.u .edu/Pesticide.Information.htm or call 863-763-6469.

A t their meeting on Thursday, May 10, they spent a considerable amount of time discussing the county's policy on awarding contracts to local bidders. Current policy says that if a local vendor bids up to 5 percent over an out of town bidder the local bidder may be awarded the contract for the higher price. The key word is "may" which means that commissioners are not required to award the bid to a local contractor, they can use their discretion. There was some talk of changing the word to "shall" which would mean the commissioners would have no leeway. They would be required in such cases to award the bid to the local contractor. A variety of views was discussed including requiring the local contractor to match the low bid and using a sliding scale rather a at ve percent to determine if a local bidders quali es. Mrs. Chartier admitted that this issue has not caused a problem in the past. "What made sense at $5,000 does not necessarily make sense at $250,000," said county attorney John Cassels. It was noted that for very large contracts, ve percent could mean a large amount of money. "Use local preference in a regional manner rather than a county manner," asserted Commissioner Bryant Culpepper. "The bottom line is to keep our contractors working." I don't see why we are xing something that is not broken," said Commissioner Joey Hoover. "I would disagree, said Commissioner Frank Irby, "it is broken." He went on to say the current policy is not clearly de ned. "When you give that preference it is not to give away our money," said local contractor Phil Baughman, "it is to keep our community alive, to take care of the needs of the tax payer." He noted that most contracts being bid on in today's economy are government projects. "If you don't support local businesses there will be a time when there are no local businesses to support," he asserted. Local business owner Mack Worley said it is only right to give local businesses a preference of some sort. Despite the variety of opinions expressed, it appeared the consensus was to allow a local bidder to match the lowest bid. Count y staff will rework the present policy and bring it back to the commission for consideration at a later date. County Commissioners try to help local contractors Special to the Okeechobee News/ Tara RowleyGuest speaker at Economic CouncilThe Economic Council of Okeechobee met on May 2 at Indian River State College with guest speaker Captain Vance Akins, East Central Region Commander for the Division of Fraud in the State Department of Financial Services. Akins spoke on the impact of fraud on our economy using a diagram called “The Greed Triangle;” he discussed topics such as insurance, workers’ compensation, and identity theft. Pictured (L to R) are Teresa Chandler, Hoot Worley, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s Regional Director Greg Langowski, Captain Vance Akins, Undersheriff Noel Stephen, Sheriff Paul May, Maureen Budjinski and County Commissioner Ray Domer.

Obama threatens Supreme Court I am remembering Obama got caught unaware of his open mic with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev .. “This is my last elect ion. After my election I’ll have more exibility” (referring to Russia’s missile defense program). So my question is, “If he is going t o be more exible with Russia on missile defense, where else is he going to cave?” By his own statement he will be no longer in fear of re-election politics as it will be his last term and will be able to do just what he pleases (more exible) as there will be no c onstraints upon him .. and that bothers me for I no longer trust him to do what is in the b est interest of this country nor it’s people .. I have grown to believe there is another agenda .. and that concerns me greatly! I just w onder where we could possibly be/end up in four years if he is re-elected. At this point, I am going to give my vote to the business man (Romney) and hope our military is s trong enough to stand on their own until w e see how quick Kerry can adjust to ont he-job training (that is if he is elected).  Many Americans had their wishes granted when they wanted so much to see a b lack man as president. I hope in November ’12 they will forget about race and choose t he candidate who is quali ed and has the desire to bring prosperity, all starting with j obs, back to our country. What is there about our economy that does not depend on available jobs?Dog hog-tied and left in ditch If anyone should witness someone misusing a dog and decide to give him a dose of what he’s got coming, guess who w ould end up in jail? I hate to see the poor doggies needing someone because it makes me want to bring them all home.  About a month ago, we were at the Sports Park when some young men in a pick up truck dumped a dog there and then drove off. The poor dog ran after them, barking frantically and they just sped up. Fortunately a young lady at the park ran after the dog and called to it and it went to her. She then convinced her grandmother to let her take it home with them. But not all dumped dogs get such a happy ending. Why don’t people just do the right thing and take the unwanted dogs to the Pet/Rescue shelter?  My Lady and I have two pets that we rescued, each were in duress at the time. I cannot imagine just “dumping” an animal off.  We have adopted several rescues and they are all wonderful pets. We have also picked up animals in distress and cared for them until we could nd them homes. In two cases, these critters were so young they had to be fed on a bottle. How anyone can dump a helpless baby kitten or puppy is beyond my comprehension, but it happens.  Any one that would treat a poor animal that way should suffer the same thing or worse.  Ah, the ole’ dump the dog out of the back of your pick-up with a collar on and laugh about it “not being yours.” Bunch a little punk ass kids in need of serious ethics lesson.  Like many people, I think the appropriate punishment for someone who would tie a dog’s legs together and leave it in a ditch would be for that person to be bound and left in a ditch in the hot sun for a few hours, with no idea if or when someone might come along to help them. But my real concern is that whoever did this might do worse to another animal or to a child. Most serial murderers start out by torturing animals. If anyone has information on who left that dog in the ditch, they should contact the cops, before something worse happens.  My heart just melted when I saw the photo of the little dog who was left hog-tied in a ditch. I just want to hug her, but I know right now she probably does not want strangers to even touch her. Thank God for the Humane Society folks who will give her the love, care and patience she needs to learn to trust people again. I hope they carefully screen the potential adopters to make sure she gets a great home when she is ready for adoption. Older Americans MonthMay is a time to honor elders in our communities as we recognize Older Americans Month. The Ombudsman Program is committed to serving Florida’s seniors. I am honored to share with you some accomplishments which took place under my leadership. On May 2, 2011, I began as the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman. In the span of one year, this program underwent a major paradigm shift from a regulatory focus toward a collaborative resident-centered advocacy focus. Last May we had 242 volunteers. Currently, we have over 300. Following the creation of a recruitment manager position and the development of partnerships with several Florida universities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate as ombudsmen as part of their internships, I expect our volunteer numbers to continue to increase. As a way to adapt to a volunteer’s available time and schedule, we developed the rst comprehensive online ombudsman certi cation training in the nation. I presented an overview of the training at the April 2012 National Association of State Ombudsman Programs Conference. There was such widespread interest that I agreed to work with the National Ombudsman Resource Center to share the training nationwide. I want to extend my appreciation to the staff and volunteers of this program who made these accomplishments possible. First and foremost, their focus is the health, safety, welfare, and rights of residents living in Florida long-term care settings. May we continue to honor and serve older Americans every day. If you would like to join us to better the lives of long-term care residents, contact 1-888-831-0404 or visit ombudsman.my orida.com to nd out how you can volunteer. Bilingual Spanish and English speaking volunteers are needed! Sincerely, Jim Crochet State Long-Term Care OmbudsmanAg VentureIt’s been over a year since we approached the Okeechobee School Board and asked if we could create and sponsor Ag Venture for the county’s fourth graders—an interactive event based solely around the importanc e of agriculture in our area. My employer, TD Bank, is a huge advocate of education thus I wanted to ensure that the event was no t only fun but we were also sharing qualit y and current curriculum! With the support o f my bank and the school board, the Florid a non pro t, Okeechobee Ag Venture Inc. was born! When I rst began my journey I had no idea the level of drive and enthusiasm I would encounter from the group that, on May 9 and 10, actually made our dream a reality! Presenting Dairy, Citrus, Natural Resources, Alligator Farming, Beef and th e Vegetable industries to the children mean t nding subject matter experts in every topi c that would be willing to devote time, design curriculum and prepare the site itself (from oranges, hay, trees, and calves to cookies) not to mention the undertaking of transporting and addressing the safety needs of nearl y 600 students! Coordinating with every elementar y school and the wonderful teachers, this team of business partners and volunteers cheerfully made Ag Venture a success! This letter is to thank all those that generously gave their monies, materials and o f themselves. This letter also addresses th e core team of individuals that with their tireless efforts brought Okeechobee County’s inaugural Ag-Venture to life! A sincere than k you to: Debbie Clements, Board Member Wayne Cunningham, Board Member Audrey Driggers, Ag Venture V.P. & Board Member Kay Duke, Board Member Cecilia Elliott, Ag Venture Sec/Treas & Board Member Mary Hurley, Board Member Melissa MontesDeOca, Board Member, and Mark Roberts, Board Member. They say we are only as good as thos e that surround us—I could not have been surrounded by a ner group than these folks! I offer you all a standing ovation! See you nex t year…….

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Okeechobee News May 16, 2012 By Tom ByrdINI Florida For nearly a century, residents of Okeechobee County have continually turned to the Okeechobee News for local news of their community. We appreciate the support readers have shown to us over the years and w e remain steadfast in our commitment to serving our readers and advertisers. But the world has changed much the last 5 years, let alone the last 100. While the de nition of local news may have remained the same, the method in which readers may receive that news has changed dramatically. Several years ago the Okeechobee News introduced an online component to our newspaper. Free classi eds and public forums were the most attractive elements to the site, but admittedly, we fell short when it came to providing updated news in a convenient and timely package. All that has now changed. Beginning this month, we're very pleased to introduce our "new and improved" digital componenta site we invite you to check out for yourself at orida.newszap.com. Unlike our prior site, orida.newszap. com offers up-to-date news, expanded photo and video galleries, comprehensive calendars and much more helpful information to readers looking for news not just in Okeechobee, but throughout the entire Big Lake area. We've combined the talents of our news team and contributors to create an online product that we think will be helpful and meaningful to our readers throughout the county and region. Visitors to our "new and improved" orida.newszap.com will immediately notice some new features: Daily local news updates from our acclaimed network of community newspapers serving Okeechobee and the Big "O" area. Expanded photo galleries and videos. The latest in local sports and entertainment news to provide you with helpful information on where to go and what to do. Enhanced and comprehensive community calendars that are simple to use and easy for anyone to submit events. And of course, we've kept some of the most popular features such as free online classi eds, local real estate information and obituaries. The site overall has a whole new feel and look. For simplicity, we consolidated a number of pages. We think it's more attractive, interactive and easier to navigate. Most important, we think the new sites will be more useful to you as you look for current information pertaining to your local neighborhood.New look for community forumsAs part of the overall redesign, we have changed the format and location of the public discussion forums. In the past, the forums were a separate entity, and one of our goals during the redesign was to integrate them into the fabric of the overall website. We chose to do this because we recognize that the public discussion forums are an excellent example of a cohesive online community, and we hope to build and expand this online community by extending and nurturing it. To nurture the online community in the forums, we want to make it easier for people to obtain local, relevant and credible news they can then weave into their civic discussion. The new orida.newszap.com makes this possible. While our new forum platform has some improvements over the old, users may notice some differences in features and functionality. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are committed to upgrading and adding features to the new forums as soon as possible. But the primary purpose of orida. newszap.com remains unchanged. We seek to provide citizens with the electronic equivalent of a town meeting halla place for people to gather, socialize, conduct business, exchange local news and discuss public issues. As in the past, our public forums will help facilitate discussion and debate (with civility). As we grow, we will add blogs for different points of view and to provide perspective. If you've never visited our online siteor if you haven't seen us latelyplease take a moment to visit us at orida.newszap.com.

Publish in The Okeechobee News : May 16, 2012 7 Okeechobee News May 16, 2012 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An Okeechobee man is being held on bond in the Okeechobee County J ail following his arrest for allegedly ripping up a homeowner’s sprinkler system and selling the pipe for scrap. Michael David Rosemann, 33, S.E. 13th Ave., was arrested Monday, May 14, on felony charges of grand theft and defrauding a secondary metal recycler. He was also charged with the misdemeanors of trespass and criminal mischief. Jail records show that he is being held on a total bond of $3,500 on three of the charges. He was released on his own recognizance on the defrauding a secondary recycler charge. An arrest report by Deputy Bart Potter, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Ofce (OCSO), stated that a witness saw two men enter the property on S.E. 13th Ave. on Thursday, May 10, and dig up some metal pipe that went to an underground sprinkler system. According to the witness the two men dug up the pipe then took it to the residence where Rosemann lives, Deputy Potter stated. The deputy’s report went on to state that after speaking with the homeowner, he went to Rosemann’s residence Monday to see if he still had the pipe. However, Rosemann reportedly told the deputy he had scrapped the pipe and was paid $8. The homeowner apparently told Deputy Potter it would cost $500 to $1,000 to replace the pipe. Deputy Potter went on to state that Rosemann took the pipe because he “... has a pill problem.” “I asked him if it was worth stealing from someone else’s property for only $8 and he said ‘no,’” added the deputy. Man dug up pipe and scrapped it, said deputy Michael Rosemann The following individuals were arrested on felony or driving under the in uence (DUI) charges by the Okeechobee County S heriff's Of ce (OCSO), the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD), the Florida H ighway Patrol (FHP), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) or the Department of Corrections (DOC).  Gino Ramos, 17, U.S. 441 N., Okeechobee, was arrested May 11 by Deputy Michael Hazellief on a charge of carrying a concealed w eapon. He was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail then released into the custody of his parents.  Nicole Futch, 19, N.E. 16th Ave., Okeechobee, was arrested May 11 by Deputy Marcus Collier on a charge of introduction of contraband into a county detention facility. Her bond was set at $5,000.  Lisa Christine Mullens, 34, U.S. 441 S.E., was arrested May 14 by Deputy Corporal Aric Majere on a Glades County warrant charging her with possession of a synthetic narcotic with intent to sell and traf cking in a controlled substance.

She w as chasing him for excessive speed.” The retired chief said speeding is especially dangerous in Pawtucket since there are nearly 74,000 people crowded into 8.9 square miles. Of cer Tomlinson was chasing the other car on a road that was under construction. For reasons unknown, she struck a piece of road equipment then ran into a power pole. Standing tall and proud but with the grief of his daughter’s death still obvious, Chief Tomlinson said his daughter was the fourth Pawtucket P.D. of cer killed in the line of duty. “They had a few witnesses, but they only had a description of the vehicle,” he added. Alice then proudly pointed out that they also had a son on the Pawtucket Police Department. Robert Tomlinson retired 18 months ago after serving 20 years and reaching the rank of sergeant. Chief Tomlinson served that same department for over 37 years, and was the chief for his nal six years. A mandatory retirement regulation forced him to step down at the age of 62. The annual memorial is held to honor ofcers who have lost their lives, both nationally and in Florida. “The year ended up with 166 of cers killed in the line of duty, and the state of Florida led the nation with 13 of cer deaths,” Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May told the crowd at the May 14 event. “But, it does not end there. Each year in our country 60,000 U.S. law enforcement of cers are assaulted; 16,000 are injured; and, 6,000 are injured so badly that they must retire. “Florida now has the dubious distinction of being the most dangerous state in the nation for a police of cer to work. This year, Florida again is leading the nation in deaths in 2012,” he added. According to the Of cer Down Memorial Page web site, three Florida law enforcement of cers have died in the line of duty this year. Alabama, Arizona, Nevada, Puerto Rico and Texas have each had two of cers die. The page goes on to show that a total of 36 of cers have died nationwide in 2012. Gun re is the leading cause of death with 15. Nine have died in automobile accidents and three have been stabbed to death. Many of the of cers in attendance Monday morning were still mourning the death of a local police of cer who lost his battle with cancer last week. Sergeant Thomas Tarner, 61, had been a full-time of cer with the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD) since Feb. 24, 1997. He began his local career as a volunteer on the OCSO auxiliary in 1995. While in the U.S. Army, Sgt. Tarner was awarded the National Defense Service Medal and an Expert Marksmanship Ribbon. The Chambersburg, Pa., native died May 9. “There are many ways for a police of cer to die, but one stood out last year. Deputy Sheriff Sebastian Diana, of the Orange County Sheriff’s Of ce, died from heart failure due to a bacterial infection he sustained while administering CPR to an infant,” said Sheriff May. “So far this year we have had several incidents where CPR has been performed by our of cers and I am very proud of them for the risk they take.” The sheriff went on to point out that there have been no marches; no demonstrations; and, no noticeable government help to make these numbers decline. And, he continued, the numbers won’t go down as long as people with multiple felony arrests are allowed to walk the streets without fear of recourse. “Not all, but most, who kill police of cers have extensive criminal records. This problem must be addressed,” he added. Chief Tomlinson agreed and added that it would help greatly if people would onl y understand that law enforcement of cers are on the street doing a job and protecting the citizens. “But, people take advantage of it and the y just don’t care,” he said. MEMORIALContinued From Page 1 woman’s scheme even went so far as to enlist the help of a yet-to-be-identi ed man who was an attorney. Hardison told the man and woman that the attorney had appointed the male victim as the trustee, and that the money would be transferred to the victim’s bank account. Sometime later the man called his bank and was told that no money had been transferred to his account. The man then confronted Hardison, who supposedly called her contact. She then told the victim that the money he was to receive was too large for the bank to handle so it had been placed on hold. She went on to tell him that part of it was going to be sent to a bank in the Cayman Islands, and that it would be set up for his bank to receive the rest, stated the detective’s report. Detective Morrison’s report indicated that the couple ended up buying Hardison clothing, furniture and many other items. They also reportedly gave her $14,600 in cash. By the time the couple contacted the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce, the y had lost a total of $23,380.32. The detective went on to state that the couple is “... going to have to le bankruptc y due to this scheme they fell prey to.” Detective Morrison also pointed out in her report that Hardison has as many as 32 different aliases. A check of the Department of Corrections’ (DOC) web site indicates that Hardison has also used the name of Angela Bonanno, which is another well-known crime family. She’s also used such aliases as Gina Maria Adams, Gina Bass, Gina Mari a Jock, Gina Luna, Rebecca Brennam, Brennan Williams and Robyn Joan Carter Zane. The DOC web site also shows where Hardison has been in prison on several occasions. She has numerous felony convictions and has served time in prison for forgery, grand theft, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, worthless checks and exploiting the elderly. Hardison has felony convictions dating back to 1980 and has criminal convictions in Pinellas, Martin, Highlands and Okeechobee counties. HARDISONContinued From Page 1

MurphyOkeechobee News A 30-minute speech on close to 450 y ears of Seminole Indian history greeted the Okeechobee Rotary Club at their weekly meeting Tuesday at Golden Corral as historian and Outreach Director of the Ah-Tah-ThiKi museum Willie Johns spoke on the long tradition of the tribe. Mr. Johns spoke about historic events like the Battle of Okeechobee, the Indian Removal Act of 1930, Three Seminole Indian Wars, the Civil War, and their modern day success tied to high-stakes bingo and gaming. Mr. Johns also spoke on the tribe’s long history with agriculture and living off the land in Florida. They have been in the cattle business for 300 years as they took over Spanish rancheros that were left abandoned. He noted their cattle herd got started when 700 cattle were sent from the Apache tribe to Florida. Only 200 got off the train cars in Cornwell and actually lived but the Hereford brand survived and is still a part of the tribe today. From a tribe as small as 300 members near the end of the Seminole Wars to today’s population of 3,900 members, the tribe has survived, never been conquered, and have thrived as Florida natives. The Tribe employs 45,000 people and has business ties in 97 countries through their Hard Rock Caf International brand which include Russia, Singapore, and India. A casino in the South China Sea is their most pro table in the world. They eld numerous requests from other countries to expand the Hard Rock restaurants including Cuba which would like to have one at their famed Copa Cabana. Johns said his job is to tell the tribe’s story and rich history. He works to repatriate bones of Seminoles buried across Florida that are discovered from time to time. A Florida law said any remains found must be returned to the tribe. Many burial sites are located near the Kennedy Space Center and Johns said the elimination of shuttle launches there could one day mean more bones are repatriated. The tribe also had a dispute with the South Florida Water Management District who moved many tribal member remains south of Lake Okeechobee as part of the Everglades restoration project. They have the bones buried at a cemetery in Brighton. “We get calls every day about repatriation and they must go somewhere. We recognized different properties on the reservation to bury these remains,” he said. A large memorial ground is being looked at as a possible way to appropriately honor these members. Mr. Johns said the tribe is very proud of the Battle of Okeechobee Park. He said it shines a positive light on the Seminoles ght to survive. The Brighton Reservation also just opened a new senior center. It has won several awards for being environmentally friendly. W illie Johns speaks to Okeechobee Rotary Club By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An early-evening re that destroyed a single-story home on N.E. 138th St. has left a local family searching for another place to live. An Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue (OCF/R) report by paramedic David Harris indicates they were dispatched to Vivian Hadley’s home at 7:23 p.m. and remained on scene until after midnight. The home, w ith an estimated value of $189,000, was totally destroyed. Besides the home, the report estimated the damage to the home’s contents at $40,000. Paramedic Harris stated that an 18-yearold family member was injured when he broke out a bedroom window. According to the report, Dillon Hadley cut his hand while trying to push a garden hose through the broken window and was taken to the Raulerson Hospital emergency room for medical treatment. The report does not indicate a cause for the blaze. OCF/R of cials said the investigation has been turned over to the state re marshal’s of ce. A recreational vehicle parked at the back of the home was also destroyed by the blaze. The family received immediate help from the American Red Cross but has been left to nd a new place to live. Mrs. Hadley lived in the home with three children. Fire destroys family’s home By Pete GawdaOkeechobee News Of the two cases on the agenda for the Okeechobee County Code Enforcement Special Magistrate Hearing on Tuesday, May 15, one was in compliance and the other w as given more time to come into compliance. Code enforcement of cer Beth Albert said the N.W. 113th Drive property of Marta Sherwood was in compliance. Therefore, that case was not heard. In the other case on the agenda, code enforcement of cer Mike Gehring said that there is a re damaged structure on the N.W. 24th Street property of Orlando Piz. While Mr. Piz has been very cooperative, Mr. Gehring said that Mr. Piz was having problems with the mortgage company and the insurance company.

MurphyOkeechobee News Cody Walker has become a leader of the Okeechobee High School Brahman football team in a short time this spring. He has jelled w ith the new coaches and really enjoyed the competition and the intensity of every practice. “I’m loving it. The team is competing and getting better every day. We ght for everything and it is just amazing,” he said. Walker will practice with the team but w on’t play in the intrasquad game on May 25 because he is part of the marching band that will appear in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. While he admits he wanted to play, he also didn’t want to miss the once in a lifetime opportunity of playing on the national mall. “It’s going to be amazing. Coach Branham said he understand my devotion to the band. He told me to come out here everyday and work hard until I leave,” he added. Walker and the coaches have gotten close in a short time. They communicate all the time with the players and try to keep their spirits and enthusiasm for the game at a high level. Walker called it a total new atmosphere on the eld. “A lot more guys have come out this spring which makes me happy and makes the coaches happy. People are ghting for positions and we never had to do that before. It’s a whole new atmosphere out here,” he added. Walker’s goals for the spring are to get closer as a unit. He said the team can’t win with just individual talent and they must work together on the eld. He also has become a leader on the offensive line along with offensive tackle Bobby Jo Garza who appears fully healed from a shoulder injury last year. “We have a lot of pure talent on the offensive line. It’s only raw talent so we have to jell and form a unit,” he added. Walker also got himself a hair cut and shaved off his beard which he sported during the high school tennis season. He jokes he will be faster without the hair and better able to handle the summer heat. He also has devoted himself to lifting weights this summer. He will be the starting strong side offensive guard and a starter at defensive tackle next fall. “I’m loving it. Tennis kept me in condition and improved my foot work. Now the goal is to get in the weight room and improve m y strength,” he said.
