Page 13 By Katrina ElskenOkeechobee News The Okeechobee County Commission voted 4-1 Thursday to move forward with their plans for a new building for the Okeechobee County Tax Collector’s Of ce and the Driver’s License Of ce, as well as make some other of ce changes and upgrades to other existing buildings. Part of the plan calls for moving Okeechobee Senior Services to the DCF & Health Department building at 1690 N.W. Ninth Ave. building. “This is not just about a building; this is about all of the facilities and needs,” said county administrator Robbie Chartier. She added that the money for these projects was already budgeted with infrastructure funds from the one cent county sales tax. The new building and other repairs and upgrades are part of an overall plan that had been put on hold recently by the county commission. At the March 28 commission meeting, discussion of the Driver License Facility options generated additional questions related to how the choice of options could impact other facilities and departments with various de ciencies. At their May 9 meeting, Donnie Oden gave the board an overview of all of the county buildings currently in use. File storage is a big problem for some of the of ces, he said. For example, the Clerk of Courts les current take up about 4,000 square feet of space and the Tax Collectors of ce has 1,500 square feet used for storage of les and tag inventory. Tax Collector Celeste Watford said they scan in records to save space, but they are required to maintain 20 years of hard copy. She said they also maintain historical documents. She said the space needed for tag inventor y has increased over the years because the state now requires they carry inventory of over 200 kinds of tags. Mr. Oden said the county currently has several modular buildings in use. A modula r unit across the street from the courthouse was installed to temporarily house the Superviso r of Elections of ce. After the old courthouse restoration was complete, that modular building was supposed to be removed, but it is still County building plans progress Special to the Okeechobee NewsOkeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce Major Noel Stephen (second from right) congratulated the cook team of Confederate Smoke for being named grand champions in the Open Division at the May 3 & 4 O.L.

At left is City Clerk Lane Gamiotea. At right is Deputy Clerk Melisa Jahner. The proclamation states, in part, “The Of ce of the Municipal Clerk provides the professional link between the citizens, the local governing bodies and agencies of government at other levels.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District has announced plans to increase ows from Lake Okeechobee as part of its effort to manage water levels for the upcoming wet season. The releases from the lake began May 8. The maximum ow to the Caloosahatchee Estuary will be 1,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) as measured at W.P. Franklin Lock (S-79) near Fort Myers. Runoff from recent rains in the St. Lucie Canal will continue to pass through the St. Lucie Lock (S-80) near Stuart at a target maximum ow of 250 cfs. As ows drop below this point, water from the lake will be released to make up the difference. The release is being conducted in accordance with the 2008 Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (LORS), the master plan for water management of the lake. On May 7, the lake stage was 13.58 feet, which is within the Low Operational Sub-Band. Under current conditions, the corps is authorized to release up to 3,000 cfs to the Caloosahatchee and 1,170 cfs to the St. Lucie. The releases are currently being held below those levels to minimize impacts to the environment. "South Florida has already received more than half of the precipitation expected for May in just the rst week," said Lt. Col. Tom Greco, Jacksonville District Deputy Commander for South Florida. "We are also looking at a forecast that calls for very wet conditions over the next three months. Given these circumstances, it is essential to begin increasing lake discharges to position ourselves for the wet season while minimizing environmental impacts." The corps will closely monitor the releases and adjust ows as necessary to balance the competing needs and purposes of Lake Okeechobee. Public safety remains the corps' top priority. For more information on water level and ows data for Lake Okeechobee, visit the corps' water management page at the Jacksonville District website: http://w3.saj.usace.army.mil/h2o/currentLL.shtml.

Okeechobee Arrest Report By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An Okeechobee man was arrested on a felony charge after he reportedly pulled a woman from her car and began hitting her about her body. Fabien Howard, 18, N.W. Fourth St., was arrested Tuesday, May 7, on a felony charge of burglary with assault or battery and a misdemeanor charge of battery. He was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond of $10,500. Of cer Charles Green, of the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD), indicated in his arrest report that Howard and the victim w ere talking outside a N.W. Fourth St. home w hen their conversation became an argument. The victim sat down in the driver’s seat of a vehicle parked in the driveway and closed the door to reportedly get away from Howard. However, Howard went to the passenger side of the vehicle and grabbed the victim’s hair and pulled her out of the vehicle, stated the of cer’s report. He then allegedly grabbed the woman by her waist and pushed her toward a ditch where he began to hit in the side of her body when she fell to the ground, continued the report. A family member of the victim, along with a friend, apparently pulled Howard off the woman. According to Of cer Green a witness to the ght con rmed the victim’s version of the incident. The of cer’s report does not indicate if the victim needed, or received, medical attention. Man accused of hitting woman Fabien Howard

“We have some positive changes to applaud as the nation observes National Foster Care Month in May,” said former foster child Margaret Iuculano. “In Ohio, $3 million from a mortgage settlement the state won will help foster kids pursue higher education and expand courtappointed advocates. And in Florida, a new law is going to make it much easier for foster kids to do normal things like sleepovers w ith their friends and school eld trips,” she said. “In Nebraska, they’re close to boosting the pay for foster parents, which will mean the state can retain and attract more and better foster parents.” But Ms. Iuculano, spokeswoman for Duffels for Kids (www. oridafapa.org/duffelsforkids), and founder of Angels for Foster Kids, says that sometimes, it’s the smallest things foster children remember most. “I was in foster care from age 11 to 16, w hen I aged out, and I was moved to 15 different homes in that time,” she said. “Every time I moved, I had to pack my few belongings in a black trash bag. “When you’re already feeling abandoned, w ondering whether anyone will ever want y ou or care about you, that trash bag seals it: No, they won’t. You’re a throwaway.” While workplace groups and communities have banded together and charities have sprung up across the country to address this problem, more foster care children than not continue to cart their belongings in trash bags. “There just hasn’t been enough,” Ms.Iuculano said. “And often, the organizations gather used luggage. I know the intention is good, but we’d like to give these children something brand new; something all their own.” To that end, another positive to celebrate will be the rst Duffels for Kids Walk, sponsored by the Florida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association on May 18 in Miami. It’s the kickoff to the association’s drive to provide new duffel bags to every child in that state’s foster care system. As the program grows, its leaders hope to have new duffel bags for each child entering the system, Iuculano says. Duffels for Kids will initially focus on Florida, but organizer LaShaun Wallace, who’s on the board of the National Foster Parents Association, hopes it will eventually go nationwide. It’s in everyone’s best interests to protect the most vulnerable in our society, children without the protection of loving, caring families, Ms. Iuculano said. “When you look at the numbers, you quickly see why we desperately need more positive changes to applaud,” she said. These were compiled from various sources:  In recent years, there have been more than 500,000 children in foster care nationally; per one annual count, 22 percent were available for adoption.  In that year, 18 percent of children were adopted after waiting an average 42 months in foster care.  More than half of the children who age out of foster care will be unemployed adults.  Almost a third will be homeless.  One in ve will be incarcerated within two years. To support Duffels for Kids by attending the walk or making a donation, visit the website. Some of the supporters scheduled to participate in the May 18 walk include Esther Jacobo, regional director for Miami–Dade and Monroe counties for the Florida Department of Children and Families and Children’s Trust board member; Dr. Kalyani Gopal, licensed clinical psychologist and author of “Foster Parenting Step-by-Step,” to be released in May, which tackles the day-to-day issues in raising foster children; and Sidarth Singh and Shifali Singh, siblings who founded the former Duffels for Angels—renamed Duffels for Kids—and Aid for Change to provide duffel bags for foster children in Indiana. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted to t he Okeechobee News by e-mailing o bits@newszap.com.

By Katrina ElskenOkeechobee News The Okeechobee City Council Tuesday v oted to pay half of the cost of replacing the windows in the Chamber of Commerce building. Terry Burroughs spoke to the council on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce of Okeechobee County. A few weeks ago a storm blew out one of the windows, Mr. Burroughs said, drawing attention to the poor condition of the windows. One of the windows is held in place with duct tape, he said. “All of the windows need to be replaced,” he said. He gave the council two estimates for replacing the 22 windows, $18,502 for double-paned insulated windows and $16,720 for single pane. These windows would meet the new code requirements for wind resistance, he said. Councilmen differed on their interpretations of the lease with the chamber. While the lease mentions windows as the chamber’s responsibility, Councilman Devin Maxwell opined that means the chamber is responsible for replacing broken glass, not replacing entire windows. This window project would be an upgrade to the building. He suggested they treat it like any other city building and go through the regular bidding process. City administrator Brian Whitehall said there is no money in the current budget for work on the chamber building. “We would have to make a budget adjustment and take the funds from the reserves,” Mr. Whitehall said. “It is a legitimate request for some portion,” said Councilman Dowling Watford. Mr. Watford made a motion for the city to pay half the cost of the window replacements. Councilman Clayton Williams voted to approve this motion. Councilmen Maxwell and Mike O’Connor voted against it. Mayor James Kirk voted in favor of the motion, breaking the tie. In other business Tuesday, the city council adopted a resolution for a construction agreement with Florida Department o f Transportation for the Applebee’s turning lane project. The council also scheduled city council meetings for the summer for June 18, Jul y 16 and Aug. 20. The city council will onl y meet once a month during the summer. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 104 NW 7th Ave. Okeechobee 863-763-4010 or 888-874-2945Lic.

Savannah Goggans, president of the Yearling Middle School S WAT, spoke to the council in support of the resolution. She said almost 90 percent of tobacco users started before they were 18 years old. A recent survey found that in Okeechobee County, 27 percent of high school students and 16 percent of middle school students reported using a tobacco product in the past 30 days. Both of these rates are signi cantly higher than the state average. Tobacco companies use youth-oriented colorful package and candy avors to attract young people with names such as Mandarin Min, Winter Warm Toffee and Twista Chill, she continued.

For example, more parking is needed at the Public Safety Complex, which houses Fire/ Rescue administration, Emergency Management, and the E-911 dispatchers. “I don’t think anyone had any idea how often that building w ould be used for education and training,” he said. “We are really getting a lot of use out of that building.” The road department operates from a collection of structures including one that dates back to 1945. The plan calls for replacement of an of ce building (a portion of this expense w ill be covered by insurance) and putting a canopy over the fuel tanks. The existing Lottie Raulerson Senior Center is on a tiny lot with so little parking that seniors have to cross the street to gain access to the building. The outbuilding used for storage was built in 1963; the dining and of ce areas in 1971. Mr. Oden said this building and the tiny lot it sits on are just not adequate to provide the needed services. The plan calls for moving other county of ces into the Alderman Building space that will be vacated by the Tax Collector’s Of ce and to move Senior Services to the Health Department building. Since the Health Department building is used as the special needs hurricane shelter, in an emergency the Senior Services area there could be used for shelter space. The Sports Complex of ce is still a modular unit and they have been using conex boxes for storage, he said. The county facilities are operating below the standards that the county would require for a business, he explained. Mr. Oden said the work planned will take years. “If we started June 1, we would nish about 2016,” he said. County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper asked if buildings the county owns in the industrial park could be used. Assistant county administrator Jim Threewits said the land there is owned by the FAA and they allowed the county to put buildings there to help improve the economic conditions and help fund the airport. In some cases, the issues with the buildings were caused by the hurricanes in 2004 and 2005. Other problems were created by “the way the commission did business in the past,” Mr. Oden said. “For whatever reason, we got into the situation where we are—which is behind the 8 ball.” “This is a time the board has the opportunity to realign the county and prepare the county for the future,” he said. County Commission Chairman Frank Irby said he is concerned about the cost of the le storage and the current inef cient use of space. “We are eating up very expensive space to stack old les in,” he said. “This is money that is already in the budget for these buildings as discussed,” said Commissioner Joey Hoover. Commissioner Bryant Culpepper was the only opponent to the plans. “To me, it’s scary making a commitment like this,” he said. “I’d love to see all new buildings. I like to drive new cars. But I am concerned at the economic climate of the times,” he said. “Right now the economy is trending downwards. It’s a little disconcerting to me. I think right now we should be in a holding pattern and wait and see what happens in the next few years.” “We’ve got two constitutional of cers who have been in a building for 23 years, trying to make do,” said Mr. Oden. “Abraham Lincoln said you can’t escape the responsibilities of tomorrow by evading them today,” said Mr. Hoover. If the count y didn’t build a driver’s license building, “if the state called up tomorrow and said we were just joking, you don’t have to take that over,” the county would still have space problems,” he said. “We need to address responsibilities, not keep kicking it down the road,” he said. He said the infrastructure tax that those commissioners had the political will to implement in 1995 was not without political hurdles. “We would not allow any business to operate out of that senior services building with inadequate kitchen and inadequate parking,” he said. “We’ve got structures and facilities that are an embarrassment. We’ve got facilities that we wouldn’t let any business or organization operate out of. We need to step up and do what is right.” “I was in favor of stopping the project because changes were made in how we would use the building,” said Mr. Irby. “My concern was I didn’t want to move to a new building and have 10,000 square feet empty in another building.” He said current plans to reassign ofce space make sense. “I don’t think we’re building it for Celeste. I don’t think we’re doing it for the drivers license of ce. The reason is to use the buildings ef ciently,” he said. COUNTYContinued From Page 1

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A woman was arrested for allegedly hitting, choking and biting a pregnant woman after she had reportedly slashed all four tires on the vehicle in which the woman was a passenger. Lasabria Shathonia Brown, 30, N.E. Fifth St., Okeechobee, was arrested Wednesday, May 8, on a felony charge of aggravated battery on a pregnant person. She was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a $5,000 bond. An arrest report by Deputy Troy Garrison, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), indicated the incident occurred shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday when the victim went to speak with Brown. Soon the victim, a passenger in a 2000 Dodge Durango sports utility vehicle, and Brown began to argue over money, stated the deputy. According to the deputy's report when the victim told Brown she had no money, Brown pulled out a knife and slashed all four tires on the SUV and started to remove the license tag. The victim got out of the vehicle and walked toward Brown and yelled at her to stop, stated the deputy. Brown then allegedly punched the woman in the face, started choking the victim and then bit the woman on the right wrist. Brown, continued the report, then took the license tag and got on a bicycle with a man and rode north on N.E. 16th Ave. Deputy Garrison went on to state that later he was contacted by an OCSO dispatcher who told him Brown was in the lobby of the sheriff's of ce and wanted to speak with him. The deputy went to the sheriff's of ce where he spoke with Brown, who said the Durango belongs to a family member and she was told to take the license tag. She reportedly explained to the deput y that she cut the SUV's tires to keep the victim, and the man with her, from driving away. Deputy Garrison stated that he listened to Brown's explanation, then arrested her based on the injuries that were apparent on the victim. The victim, he continued, refused medical attention. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Call 863-763-3134 to reserve your space or email: okeeadsales@newszap.comATTENTION: PARENTS!The Okeechobee News will be publishing a special tribute to OHS 2013 Seniors, it will be published in the June 5, 2013 edition.Deadline: May 29, 2013 MOVIE TICKETS:Adults $6.50 Children 12 & under $5.00 Senior Citizens $5.00 all movies Matinees $4.50Fri., May 10TH Thurs., May 16THFor Info, Call 763-7202 I: “IRON MAN 3”Fri. 7:00 & 9:15, Sat., Sun. & Wed. 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:15 Mon. 3:00 & 7:00III: “ THE GREAT GATSBY”Fri., Tues. & Thurs. 7:00 & 9:10, Sat., Sun. & Wed. 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:10, Mon. 3:00 & 7:00II: “PAIN & GAIN”Fri., Tues. & Thurs. 7:00 & 9:00, Sat., Sun. & Wed. 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:00, Mon. 3:00 & 7:00 R PG-13 PG-13 12 Okeechobee News May 10, 2013 Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyFoster parents neededJanet Steward accepted a proclamation from the Okeechobee County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Frank Irby that designated May as Foster Parent Appreciation Month on Thursday.

MurphyOkeechobee News Okeechobee High School football coach Chris Branham is excited about the turnout for spring practice as 97 players were on the eld on May 3 for the rst session. The Brahman coaching staff had their hands full with a lot of new bodies and having more demand for equipment. Branham said it has been a long time since the program has had this many kids come out for football and still last one week of practice. It has helped that temperatures have been moderate, which is a blessing during the month of May for football players. One disappointment is the cancellation of a scheduled game with Glades Day. Their former coach Pete Walker left to coach at Clewiston a few months ago. That leaves the Brahmans with just the annual Purple & White intrasquad scrimmage that will be played at Brahman Stadium on May 31. There will be a varsity and an eighth grade scrimmage that night. Branham said he was excited by athletes from other sports trying out for football this year. Trenton Hickman and Layton Thomas have joined the team from baseball. Sylvester Butler, Roshell Thomas, Tyrone Joseph and Tyrell Taylor have come from the basketball team. All of them have a chance to make an impact this fall. "It is exciting to see the new faces and we are holding the numbers strong. We expected about 70 kids so we are a plus 27 and that means competition has gotten even greater," he explained. There are a number of starting jobs available on varsity this year. Most of the skilled players -quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end -have graduated. At quarterback this spring the Brahmans will consider Eddie Neal, Brandon Dee' Shockley, Cory Surls and Layton Thomas. Branham said all of them bring different skills to the position. At running back, Adrian Minondo will compete with Khalil Smith, Daniel Nunez and Tyrone Joseph. Four starters return on the offensive line with Greg Hernandez, Cody Walker, Bobby Jo Garza and Cory Vickers. Branham hopes to nd some players to play defensive line so most of these guys don't have to play both sides of the ball. "We haven't lost much in experience on the offensive line and I love the offensive line's intensity and leadership. I'm very happy with them," he added. On defense the Brahmans have switched to a 4-4-3 with four down linemen and four linebackers. Hickman and Roshell Thomas have impressed and could factor in at defensive back joining holdover G.W Jarriel. Chris Epps has also looked good from the junior varsity team. The linebacker and defensive line jobs appear to be all up for grabs with no returning starters at linebacker. Branham said the biggest stories of the spring are who will win the signal caller's job and who will be running the football in the fall. "I'm excited about the look so far. We hope the guys from the other sports work out and we can keep these numbers. I'd love to have a freshman team, junior varsity and varsity team. We might be rebuilding, but certainly we will reload," he added. Branham said while he is disappointed they won't play Glades Day or another school this spring, he feels it will give the team more time to focus on learning and the schemes they'll be asked to play. "I have never scheduled a spring game but this year I really wanted to have one. This way there won't be a lot of pressure or stress and I think we'll be able to learn about the players and what they can do at the Purple & White game," he added. The football team will also hold a fundraiser walk-a-thon Saturday, May 18. Players are also busy selling discount tickets and also OHS sports apparel through May 17. For information, call OHS at 863-462-5025. Branham enthused by spring grid turnout Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyQuarterback candidates (left to right) Eddie Neal and Dee Shockley perform practice drills. Four players have a shot at starting at that position this spring. OHS football players push the sled during a practice this week. The team has the month of May to prepare for an intrasquad scrimmage at Brahman Stadium on Friday, May 31.

Motorcycles h ave been used for transportation and entertainment for generations in the United States. The rst motorcycle was built in 1867 in France but was powered by a steam engine. In the United States, Sylvester H. Roper developed a twin-cylinder steam motorcycle, with a coal red boiler between the wheels in 1868. The rst gasoline-powered motorcycle was built by German inventors Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in 1885. Motorcycles quickly became a popular form of e cient transportation in Europe. In 1901, the Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company was formed in Spring eld, Mass. Harley-Davidson, also an American company, began manufacturing motorcycles in 1903. By 1931, Indian and Harley-Davidson w ere the only two American manufacturers producing commercial motorcycles. This rivalry continued until 1953, when the Indian Motorcycle factory in Massachusetts closed and Royal En eld took over the Indian name. It was not until after WWII that motorcycle sales really took o in the United States, becoming popular with soldiers returning from the war. These soldiers formed some of the rst motorcycle clubs. The rst “baby boomers”—children of the WWII veterans—started buying their own motorcycles in the 1960s. Honda entered the American motorcycle market in a big way with a popular 1962 ad campaign “You meet the nicest people on a Honda,” and in just three years the number of registered motorcycles in the U.S. doubled. By 1975, there were more than 5 million motorcycles registered in the United States. Motorcycle sales slumped in the 1980s, as baby boomers were busy raising their own children. But as their children grew older, many of the baby boomers once again felt the call of the open road and returned to motorcycling, this time choosing larger, more expensive bikes. Higher gasoline prices h ave also been good for motorcycle sales. In 2012, there were approximately 9.47 million motorcycles registered in the U.S. The sunny states of California, with more than 743,000 registered motorcycles, and Florida, with more than 594,000 lead the nation. What will the future bring? Manufacturers already produce motorcycles tha t run on ethanol for the South American market. Hybrid motorcycles and electric motorcycles are also entering the market.

Motorcycles can be easily hidden in traf c, so it critical for motorists to watch for motorcycles to ensure everyone’s safety. Here are several safety tips to help motorcyclists stay safe: • Don’t buy more bike than you can handle; • Hone your skills by taking a training class; • Wear protective gear including helmet(Riders without a helmet are 40 percent more likely to su er a fatal head injury in a crash and three times more likely to su er brain injuries than those w ith helmets, according to government studies); • Drive defensively (in multi-vehicle crashes, car drivers were at fault 60 percent of the time so be extra alert); • Brighten up (wear bright colors to make you more v isible); • Avoid bad w eather; • Watch for road hazards; • Before each ride make sure your bike and is working properly (lights, horn, tires, etc); and, • Ride responsibly, “Don’t Drink and Ride.” FDOT Secretary A nanth Prasad said, “The department remains steadfast in our commitment to ensure all motorists enjoy safe travels on our roadways. This safety campaign is an important tool to raise awareness of this critical issue.” “Florida’s mild climate and beautiful scenery make it very attractive for Florida residents to own a motorcycle. Those same characteristics make it a popular destination for many motorcycle riders who visit our state each year,” said Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Julie Jones. “Car and truck drivers should expect to share the road with motorcycles each day. Awareness of the limitations of other vehicles on the road and driving accordingly will make the traveling experience in Florida more pleasant and safer for all.” May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month Courtesy photoThe Rim Ditch Bike Fest in April featured a motorcycle show with custom motorcycles.
