By Katrina ElskenOkeechobee NewsThe county land ll is not the "cash cow" it once was. Although the land ll has generated more than $80 million in host fees since it was privatized, that source of income in dwindling. In 2012, host fees were less than $3 million. This y ear's receipts may be even lower. "We went from $6 million (a year) in host fees to less than $3 million," said County Commission Chairman Frank Irby. "We can't just assume that is always going to be there to manage our business. We can't depend on that income." On Dec. 10, 1991, Okeechobee County and Chambers Waste (now known as Waste Management, Inc.) entered into a Land ll Privatization Agreement for the ownership, care and daily operation of the Solid Waste Land ll Site on N.E. 128th Ave. As part of this agreement, Waste Management, Inc. is required to pay the county host fees for certain types of "out-of-county" and "in-county" waste that enters the land ll, including municipal solid waste, construction debris, waste tires, contaminated soil, sludge, ash and other related waste. Since 2007, the county has seen a steady decrease in the host fees paid to the county. Part of the decline is attributed to increased competition from other land lls. A slowdown in construction, due to the economy, is also a factor. Increased recycling has also reduced the amount of material going into the land ll. Within the past couple of months, the county agreed to allow the disposal rate to be lowered in an effort to make the land ll cost more competitive. At the June 14 meeting of the Okeechobee County Board of County Commissioners, Jeff Sabin of Waste Management reported the land ll will soon receive waste from Fort Pierce. "Yesterday I was meeting with the City of Fort Pierce, discussing the opening of the new Fort Pierce transfer system," he said. "It looks like instead of opening in the fall, we've moved it into July." He said the agreement with Fort Pierce is for 36,000 to 40,000 tons annually. He said the Okeechobee land ll will also be receiving waste from Martin County. Mr. Sabin said they are watching the competition. For example, Palm Beach County is building a waste energy facility. Decreases in tonnage at the land ll translate to decrease in host fees for Okeechobee County. In 2007 the land ll accepted 1,600,289 million tons from out-of-county, generating $5,953,112.43 in host fees paid to Okeechobee County. For 2010, the land ll accepted 884,686 tons from out of county, generating $3,644,054 in host fees. For 2012, the land ll accepted 611,412 tons from out of county, generating $2,729,291. "It's still a nice check," said Commissioner Ray Domer. Mr. Sabin said the land ll is still a great asset. He said it has "airspace capacity" that, at current volume, is suf cient to last at least 100 years. "There will always be a need for a land llthose wastes that cannot be processed, recovered or recycled," he said. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District announced plans Friday to increase the water releases from Lake Okeechobee as part of efforts to manage the rising lake level. The release is being conducted in accordance with the 2008 Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (LORS), the master plan for water management of the lake. Friday, the lake stage was 13.92 feet, which is within the Low Operational Sub-Band. Runoff from heavy rains in the area has prevented any discharges from the lake since June 6. As runoff subsides, lake water will gradually be released until target ows are achieved. The corps has developed a release schedule for seven days that will begin on Monday, June 17. The average target ow for the Caloosahatchee Estuary over the seven-day period has been increased to 2,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) as measured at W.P. Franklin Lock (S-79) near Fort Myers. The new target ow for the St. Lucie Estuary is 950 cfs, as measured at the St. Lucie Lock near Stuart. The target ows will include lake water, and any runoff that might be collected in the Caloosahatchee River and St. Lucie canal. "Managing water in south Florida requires a well-coordinated response with our local partner, the South Florida Water Management District," said Col. Alan Dodd, Jacksonville District Commander. "The Water Management District has maximized its capacity to send water to the south of the lake and we are working to ensure minimal ows are coming from the north out of the Kissimmee basin. Additional increases in the discharge rate may be necessary if the lake continues to rise. The corps will continue to monitor and make adjustments as necessary.

Protest at recycling business Thinking about the metal recycling place, I am wondering why the metal is j ust stacking up and not being transported s omewhere to be melted down and reused. T he recycling company pays people for this s crap metal. They don’t make money unless t hey sell the scrap metal to someone else to melt down or melt it down themselves and s ell the reclaimed product. So, why just let it s tack up higher and higher?  If the land is zoned for that type of business there isn’t much they can do about it, no matter how much they protest. I’m not s ure what the big deal is all of a sudden. I believe it was a junk yard/body shop for many, many years before it switched to a recycling c enter. A junk yard is a junk yard, no matter w hat sign you hang in front of it.  I saw in the paper that folks in Douglas Park are complaining about the high piles of s crap metal at the recycling center. The property changed hands about a year and half ago. It was a “parts” place, aka, a junk yard b efore. When it was a junk yard it was not nice to look at but things were not piled up t wice as high as the fence. Isn’t there some kind of code they should have to follow?  The code enforcement people will ne you if you let the grass and weeds grow up in your yard because it is a “public nuisance.” And yet they don’t see a problem with scrap metal piled up several stories high and when it’s hurricane season? When Hurricane Jeanne hit us, it took the roofs off buildings and left them half a mile away. Certainly hurricane force winds can pick up bits and pieces of scrap metal that is stacked up so high. Surely there are some kind of regulations regarding safety of the nearby residential area.Work crews I would like to express my appreciation to the guys of the inmate work crew, along with two of cers, who have been seen all around Okeechobee doing various work. They pressure cleaned the war memorial and set up a tent so that volunteers who were painting it could have shade. One trustee also helped with the painting. The inmate work crew recently painted the inside facility at the sheriff’s of ce gun range along with stripping and waxing the oors. They keep our roadways clean of trash. They also help with set up and clean up for community events.Dogs loose I will NOT own a dog who won’t stay inside my fence. They are no good to me outside my fence and could pose a danger to others if running together. Our dogs know better to even venture outside the gate, even if it’s left open while driving in/out. There are two big dogs in our neighborhood who will eventually hurt someone—as this pair is quite aggressive, running and looking for something to get into. These dogs don’t always get out but several times I’ve watched them chase bicycles or walkers in front of our home, or chase the neighbor’s cattle. These dogs are not protecting anything and are simply looking for trouble. If I knew who/where these two dogs belong I would call animal control.  I completely agree that if you have big dogs you should have a fenced yard. Big dogs need room to run around. I would not have dogs if I did not have a fenced yard. My dogs only leave my property if they are on a leash. But I know it is a problem that people do let their dogs roam and that is not good for the neighborhood and it is not good for the dogs. Responsible dog owners keep their pets safely at home or on a leash if they take them out and about. No WindA gentleman who liked to sail was out on the water one day when the wind died down. The sea became at and calm. He referred to it as “Sitting in Irons,” an old sailor’s term. As he sat there enjoying the calm drifting he saw another sailboat oating aimlessly. As he steered past them he saw them waving and making gestures about the at sea and no wind. Then he saw one fellow blowing on the sails trying to make his own wind. There’s more to the story, but this part reminded me of how some people live. They try to blow their own breath in to their lives and end up with de ated sails going nowhere. Some Christians and churches are like that. The Spirit of God in Hebrew is “Ruach,” meaning breath and wind. The power of the Holy Spirit is like a mighty wind. It lls you and gets you moving. When the winds are blowing and you’re moving in the direction the Holy Spirit is sending you, you know you are going the right way. When the winds die down, you take a little time to relax and enjoy the “rest,” or break in the busyness. And don’t worry, He’ll breathe on you again when you’ve nished your break. As I think about the churches and people who attend them I wonder how many are blowing their own wind. I see so many churches struggling to get the numbers up by entertaining and seeking the applause of the people rather than the approval of God. They prefer the performance over the Praise. In Romans 8:26 we learn that “...the Spirit makes intercession for us with groanings that cannot be uttered...” and v:27 “...and he that searches the heart knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit for he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” When the Holy Spirit breathes on you, you will know it. Accept it and embrace it. Let it “blow you away”! Stop trying to blow your own wind into your sails. Churches die because they feed the eyes and tickle the ears instead of feeding the soul and satisfying the hungry hearts. Performance preaching always leaves a hungry heart void of conviction. Praise God in reading His word, praise Him in song and worship, allow the Holy Spirit to ll you with the joy of having His wind in your sails! Sunday morning is my favorite time. Our Pastor is one of the most Spiritlled men I know. He makes us laugh with funny little stories from his life, he has a great lov e and compassion for the people and a grea t boldness of the Spirit. And his teachings ar e strictly biblical. He’s not perfect like the res t of us, but he allows the Holy Spirit to direc t his ways. He never sways from the word of God. He doesn’t try to entertain us, his stories are personal and have meaning and are a testimony to his life as a servant of th e LORD. God has turned his trials into testimonies and his tragedies into triumphs and this is what he tries to instill in us through his preaching of God’s word. I get it! I don’t tr y to blow my own wind anymore! Go to a bible teaching church wher e the Holy Spirit can breathe on you. I go to Oakview if you want to come hear Bro. John preach. Let the Holy Spirit lead you ... jus t remember ...Jesus loves you and so do I. ~ Cheryl Gawda OkeechobeeSupport appreciatedDavid and I would like to extend ou r gratitude and appreciation to the people o f Okeechobee and surrounding communities for their support and generosity for David Baladez.

Community Events Brought to you by:“Your Air Conditioning and Plumbing Specialist”863.763.6461Lic#CAC1817236 of the school year, the two sides nally declared "impasse," which sent the matter to a Special Magistrate. On April 29, the magistrate heard from both sides on contract items still in contention. Each side also submitted post hearing briefs to the magistrate on May 25. On May 31, Special Magistrate Mark Lurie released his recommendations on the contract issues. The union and the school district have until June 20 to decide if they will accept the magistrate's recommendations. If any items are still in dispute, they will ask for a hearing before the Okeechobee County School Board, who will make the nal decision on disputed items. Once the contract disputes are resolved, the contract must then be voted on by the teachers. Since school is already out, that vote will probably not be taken until August. Three of the issues disputed were about money. The school district proposed a salary freeze, citing economic issues that affected local tax revenues and a reduction in federal funding. In the 2011-2012 school year, the district's income was $42.7 million and expenditures were $46 million. The shortfall w as taken from the reserves. As a result the fund balance went from $9.5 million to $7 million. They projected a similar problem in 2012-2013. The OCEA argued that even with the shortfall from the 2011-2012 school year, the district's fund balance was 16 percent of revenue and that the district does not need to keep so much money in reserve. The district did not want to give teachers a "step increase," explained Mr. Bonasera. In past years, teachers moved up the "steps" of the salary schedule each year, so they made more money for each year of experience. Another issue was the pay for the top "step" of the salary schedule. The district did not want to increase the salary for those at the top step. The union wants the top step increased. A third salary issue involves teachers who w ork at schools with a high percentage of lower income students. Statistically, economic factors affect students' performance in school, Mr. Bonasera said. Currently, the district gives a $400 annual supplement for teachers working at one "high poverty area" school. The OCEA proposed increasing this supplement to $600 and giving it to all teachers who work at schools at which 80 percent or more of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. At the hearing, OCEA witnesses testi ed that teaching at such schools entails greater time and effort as parental monetary and academic support is wanting. The Special Magistrate sided with the OCEA on all three of the monetary issues. He agreed with OCEA that trends in property values and tax receipts are reversing and that "the dire long-term forecast offered by the district is unlikely to unfold." The district is not required to make the pay increases retroactive, said Mr. Bonasera. That will be up to the discretion of the school board. "In the realm of public education, the interest and welfare of the public are best served when teachers are paid well, when they are afforded suf cient time in which to prepare their classroom sessions, teach those sessions, evaluate students' work, and, based on those evaluations, address students' learning needs, and when the individual teacher performance is evaluated accurately, under circumstances that are representative of the norm," wrote the Special Magistrate, "the interest and welfare of the public are also served when administrators have the discretion to do their job: to manage." Another issue related to using teachers' planning periods for conferences. The magistrate recommended keeping the current contract language, which allows meetings during a teachers' planning period no more than four times a month for things such as department meetings, team meetings, parent conferences, curriculum meetings and evaluation conferences, and adding, "An additional single planning period per month may be utilized for an evaluation conference." The magistrate sided with the district in regard to the conditions for automatic renewal of teacher contracts. The district wanted to limit automatic contract renewal to those teachers who were rated "highly effective" for two consecutive years with no indicators marked "unsatisfactory" or "needs improvement." OCEA favored automatic contract renewal for teachers who were rated "effective" or "highly effective." "Determining the composition of the workforceselecting those teachers whom the district will employ and those it won't is the most important function that school management can perform," the Special Magistrate wrote. "When a district agrees to automatic contract renewal, it is agreeing to expropriate that discretion. The lower the standard for automatic contract renewal, the greater the discretion expropriated." "I think the magistrate came up with some good ideas in some areas," said Superintendent of Schools Ken Kenworthy. "There is no winner in going through an impasse," he said. He said he will be glad to get the 20122013 contract settled and start working on the 2013-2014 contract. He said he has already asked the union for some dates to start negotiating the 20132014 contract. "I have not heard back," Mr. Kenworthy said. "I'm ready to go back to the table tomorrow. "I don't like dragging this on all year long," the superintendant continued. It's not good for the teachers, not good for morale and not good for the students, he said. "It takes time and attention away from the students in the classroom," Mr. Kenworthy said. For the 2013-2014 school year contract, the state has promised an additional $1.9 million in funding for Okeechobee County Schools, including $1.1million for teacher pay raises. "I would love to sit down and talk to the union and get that raise to the employees as quickly as possible," the superintendent said. Another $500,000 of the state funding increase is earmarked to cover the increase in rates for the Florida Retirement System. Most of the remaining funds also come with strings attached, he said. "New money gets whittled away really quickly," he explained. "But we're thankful for every penny." CONTRACTContinued From Page 1

B y Eric Kopp O keechobee News A local woman with bad credit was s cammed out of $200 when she applied for a loan online and was then allegedly threate ned by a company representative when s he called about her loan. According to a report by Deputy Brian C ross, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s O f ce (OCSO), the woman lled out the n ecessary forms online to receive a $3,000 l oan from Cash America. She did this, stated t he report, because of her bad credit. After giving the company her private i nformation she spoke to Sam Martin, an a pparent company representative. Martin r eportedly told the 40-year-old woman that she had been approved and now she needed to send $200 via money gram to a Bridgette Larque in Wichita Falls, Texas. Martin went on to tell the woman the $200 was to show good faith and the company would contact her after they had received the cash, continued the deputy’s report. Deputy Cross said the woman sent the cash but never heard back from the company. However, when she called Martin he reportedly cursed her and threatened to kill her. Martin also told her he now had her personal information and knew where she lived, added the report. The deputy’s report went on to point out that the woman’s bank will apparently refund her loss, which came to a total of $211.50. W oman falls prey to online loan company

We Treat Kids Too! Diabetic Foot Complications At Florida Foot Specialist we treat all problems with the foot and ankle. There are a wide range of problems that affect the foot and ankle. These can range from orthopedic problems such as bunions to neurologic problem i.e. neuropathy. A large number of our patients are diabetic, due to the numerous complications that accompany diabetes. We also deal with fungal infections of the nails and feet, as well as vascular disorders that can cause long-term problems with the foot and ankle. Diabetes is an inability of the body to deliver sugar into the cells. Sugar is delivered into the cells with insulin. The inability of the body to deliver the sugar into the cells causes a high concentration of sugar in the blood. These high sugar concentrations cause damage to the small vessels and nerves. The high sugars also decrease the bodys ability to “ ght infection. As the nerves become damaged, pain can occur in the feet “ rst. This is followed by numbness. Often patients are relieved when the feet become numb since they are no longer painful. However, the numbness can pose its own threat. The patient is unable to feel if something is happening to Florida Foot SpecialistYour Neighborhood Foot & Ankle Specialists his or her feet. This can lead to an ulcer or wound. Once you have an ulcer, you need a good blood supply to feel that ulcer. The high blood sugars will cause enough damage to the vessels that the wound will not receive enough blood to heal. This means that the patient will have a wound that is unable to heal quickly. An ulceration is also a source of infection. The skin is the bodys “ rst line of defense against infection. An ulceration in the skin is a break in that defense system. So bacteria are able to enter the body. In diabetics with high blood sugars the immune system is de“ cient. This will allow the infection to spread. If the infection gets into the blood it can be life-threatening. Often times, if the infection gets into the bone, the bone needs to be removed calling for an amputation. As a diabetic, it is important to keep your blood sugars under control. It is also important to check your feet and shoes every day for any signs o f problems. Lastly, as a diabetic, you should be seen regularly by you r Primary Physician and a Podiatrist. Small problems can become big very quickly with diabetes. 8 Okeechobee News June 19, 2013

Arrested Saturday, June 15, were: Jason Michael Beaulieu, 20, N.E. 301st Blvd.; James Harry Lamb, 24, N.E. First St.; and Amos J orl Lee Lane, 22, N.W. 110th St. Beaulieu was charged w ith the felonies of burglary of an unoccupied structure, grand theft (two counts) and criminal mischief. He was also charged w ith the misdemeanors of petit theft and criminal mischief. Lamb was charged with the felonies of burglary of an unoccupied structure, grand theft (three counts) and criminal mischief. He was also charged with the misdemeanors of petit theft and criminal mischief (two counts). Lane was charged with the felonies of burglary of an unoccupied structure and grand theft (three counts). He was also charged with the misdemeanors of petit theft and criminal mischief. Each man is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on a bond of $28,500. An arrest report by Deputy Rusty Harts eld, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), stated the three man entered a structure on June 1 and stole a 2005 Kawasaki Mule ATV, 150-feet of wire cable on a wooden spool, two chains and the diesel fuel. According to the deputy's report while patrolling in the area of N.E. 308th St. in Fort Drum on June 2, he located some tire tracks going south on N.E. 308th St. into an area of ATV trails. He followed the tracks and found numerous business cards along with a receipt, and all of those contained the name of the ATV owner. He stated he followed the tracks into an opening in the woods where he found a set of roll bars attached to a plastic roof. The bars, stated the deputy, looked like they were cut off with an angle grinder and the cuts were fresh. The next day, after receiving an anonymous tip, Deputy Harts eld located some more tracks that led through some brush and a fence that had been destroyed. He continued to follow the tracks for several miles until he located the ATV parked in some bushes that were several hundred yards from Beaulieu's residence. The report went on to indicate there were cut marks on the Mule that matched the cut marks on the roll bar, and there was a chain in the bed of the ATV. Deputy Harts eld also stated that the ignition was missing because the ATV had been hot wired, and the Mule now would not run because the rear axle was damaged. Beaulieu was arrested later after Deput y Harts eld reportedly found the second chain hidden inside an old tire. Beaulieu apparently cut the roof off the ATV because it was hung up in some trees, indicated Deputy Harts eld.

By Katrina ElskenOkeechobee News A grant for the Okeechobee County Summer Play Camp sparked a discussion in how tax money moves from one account to another, at the Thursday meeting of the Okeechobee County Commission. The board was asked to approve a sponsorship and grant agreement in the amount of $8,576.67 between the Okeechobee Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and New Horizons of Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast for services and support of the Parks & Recreation Department’s 2013 Summer Play Camp. Commissioner Joey Hoover said this money originally came from the Children’s Services Council and was given as a grant to a New Horizon’s program. “It’s very strange to me how the money is going around in a circle and going back to the citizens that it was taken from, in the form of a grant,” said Mr. Hoover. “I’ve got some questions about it. I will vote in favor of it, but I want to go on the record that I have some questions about how the money is being moved.” County administrator Robbie Chartier explained that the money was originally intended for a different children’s program. “The reason it is coming to Okeechobee County is that we have a camp,” she said. “The way it goes around, it looks like it is a gift from New Horizons when it is not. It’s money that came from the people of Okeechobee,” said Mr. Hoover. “The Children’s Services Council is a taxing authority,” said Mrs. Chartier. “It taxes Okeechobee County residents just like we do. You apply for grants through Children’s Services Council. Apparently New Horizons applied for a grant and received a grant. It was intended to go to Ft. Pierce, but something has happened. “If Okeechobee County did not receive it, it would go back to Children’s Services Council to re-award,” she said. “It’s very serious in how you track that money,” said Mr. Hoover. “I don’t have a problem with the program.” “I would have to assume that both Ne w Horizons and Children’s Services Council are comfortable with the money being spent in that way,” said Commission Chairman Fran k Irby. “It’s nice to get some of our mone y back, even if it is a convoluted way.” Children’s Services Council grant transfer questioned 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Okeechobee News June 19, 2013 “Even if you think it’s trivial, please give the information to us and let us decide. If you prefer to stay anonymous, we understand and will honor your wishes,” he added. The lead investigator on the case is OCSO Detective Bryan Lowe, who said he has not y et been able to establish a motive for the killing. Mrs. Bell said Hill had registered with her as a career offender. “To be a career offender you must have three violent felony convictions,” she said. The Florida Career Offender Act was enacted in 2003 and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) designates who must register as a career offender. That classi cation is based upon a person’s convictions. Mrs. Bell indicated that Hill had prior convictions on felony charges of grand theftauto, grand theft, aggravated eeing and eluding a law enforcement of cer, battery on a law enforcement of cer/ re ghter, possession of a rearm by a convicted felon and eeing and eluding a law enforcement of cer. He had also been convicted on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana under 20 grams, battery and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. Those charges apparently all stem from incidents in Broward County. Hill was released from prison March 4, 2013, said Mrs. Bell. Detective Lowe said if anyone has any information on this case they are asked to call: the sheriff’s of ce at 863-763-3117; the tip line at 863-357-5333; or, Treasure Coast CrimeStoppers at 1-800-273-8477. By calling CrimeStoppers you can remain anonymous and could possibly receive a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for perpetrating a crime. MURDERContinued From Page 1 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News The Florida Highway Patrol is actively searching for family members of a man killed in a two-car accident early Saturday morning on S.R. 78 E. at Banana Grove Road in Glades County. An FHP report by Trooper Y.D. Valle indicated the man’s name has not been released pending noti cation of next of kin. Several Okeechobee residents were also involved, and two of them were transported to Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee. A third vehicle that apparently came along immediately after the wreck reportedly hit some debris in the road, but left the scene before the troopers had arrived. That driver and the type of vehicle being driven are unknown at this time. Trooper Valle stated in his report that vehicle one—described as a 2008 Jeep Patriot—was traveling south on S.R. 78 E. around 4:58 a.m. when it crossed the center lane and struck an oncoming 2003 Chevrolet Suburban being driven by Alejandro Sanchez Ruiz, 20, of Okeechobee. The trooper’s report stated the left front of the Jeep struck the left front of the Chevrolet SUV. Mr. Ruiz was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach. Two passengers in that vehicle—Erika Alvallana, 36, of Okeechobee, and Ramon Martinez, 16, also of Okeechobee—were taken to Raulerson. Three other Okeechobee residents in the SUV—Jose Luis Hernandez, 23, Ruben Chana, 23, and Lucrecia Hernandez, 17—were not taken to a hospital. All of those in the Suburban were wearing seat belts, stated the trooper. While it’s unclear at this time just what caused the fatality crash, the trooper’s report indicated the driver of the Jeep may have been trying to pass a white vehicle towing a boat trailer. After colliding with the Suburban, stated the report, the Jeep began spinning counterclockwise until it struck a concrete barrier then overturned onto it nally came to rest on its roof. The vehicle driven by Mr. Ruiz also spun counterclockwise, the trooper stated, then struck a concrete wall and guardrail with the left rear of the vehicle. The SUV did not ip over, according to the report. Besides trying to nd the next of kin for the driver of the Jeep, FHP is also searching for the third vehicle that left the scene. FHP asks anyone with information about this crash to contact Trooper Corporal J. Rongish at 239-344-1730, ext. 1192; or, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS. One killed in S.R. 78 E. crash in Glades County The Okeechobee City Planning Board/ Board of Adjustment and Appeals will meet June 20 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 55 S.W. Third Avenue.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee NewsSenior quarterback Kyla Hargraves leaves Okeechobee High School with all of the major passing records in school history. Now she can hold onto recognition from various newspapers, which include the Palm Beach Post, as an all-area flag football selection for 2013. “I’m very excited to find out about these awards. It was very humbling. I really didn’t expect anything since the season has been over for a while,” she said. Hargraves threw for better than 1,500 yards during her senior season. She was the starter at quarterback for the past four years. She had over 3,000 yards passing in her high school career. The team also showed improvement over the years. As a freshman the team didn’t win a game, 0-7. After that they showed improvement each year, with a 4-4 record as a sophomore, 6-4 and district finalist as a junior, and 4-4 this past season. Hargraves said she will always remember that she held the school passing records. “It makes me feel very good. I hope for the best for the future team. In the future I hope the players can continue the success and have good teams,” she said. Hargraves thanked her family, friends, and coaches like Robert Coleman and Jimmy Mills for their help. She said the coaches made a huge difference in her play over the past few years. Hargraves also earned a four-year letter award for flag football. She was also a two-year letter winner in volleyball. She said she intends to pay attention to the high school sports programs and is willing to assist with the flag football program as a mentor, fan and supporter of the team. “I’d like to spend some time with the girls next year especially since I played with some of the girls who will play next year,” she added. Hargraves said one of her fondest memories will be a comeback win as a junior against Palm Beach Central. The team scored on her touchdown pass to Paige McCrary in the final 10 seconds. Hargraves said she felt this year’s team could have won more games but still hung in there and played to the best of their ability. “We definitely lost a few of the girls that were bigger and more experienced and it was hard with the new girls. At the same time it was nice to play with different people and get to know them,” she added. Hargraves intends to enroll at Indian River State College and study nursing. Thanks to dual enrollment classes she was able to get one year of college completed already. In the fall she can get right to work with prerequisite courses in nursing. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 CFA022585 CAC1817236 Echols Now Offers A/C & Refrigeration $80.00A/C Service Call Free Estimates Service price match guarantee We will match every competitor’s price SINCE 1975 13 Okeechobee News June 19, 2013 Hargraves tabbed for all-area grid squad Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyLady Brahman ag football signal caller Kyla Hargraves (right) has been named to the All-Area team Shrine Club collects can tabsThe local Shrine Club is collecting the “pull tabs” from aluminum cans.

MurphyOkeechobee News Fernando Lopez of the Big O Teen Anglers Club won the FLW state juniors championship in Palatka on May 31-June 2. Lopez caught 11.58 pounds of sh during the tournament on the St. Johns River. He also won the Big Fish prize at the tourney. Big O Teen Anglers had three of the top ve nishers in his age class. Lopez quali ed for the national tournament to be held in Shreveport, La., in August. Lopez has been in the program for the past two years. He is 17 years old and will enter his junior year at Okeechobee High School in the fall. Lopez said he started to sh at age 10 and was taught the best shing tips by his grandfather. He remembers the rst sh he ever caught on a June bug worm. At the Palatka tourney, Lopez caught the big sh, an 8.71-pound lunker, with a watermelon speed worm. Charlie Hays of the Big O Teen Anglers established the club in 2004. They have won a state championship in each of the past eight years. Three of the anglers went on to sh in the junior world state championships. Luke Farmer has competed in the world championship on three occasions. "We've got some great anglers and some great boat captains," Hays said. "We can't do what we do without the boat captain and sponsors." The club is broken up into two age divisions, ages 11-14 and 15-18. Eighteen members of the club shed in the state tournament this year. They have 21 anglers on the roster and a waiting list of 40 anglers. Hays said their goal now is to entice more quali ed boat captains to assist the program so they can add more anglers to the program. She said each boat captain must undergo a background check, carry at least a $300,000 liability insurance plan and be willing to donate their time, once a month, for 10 months out of the year. The captains do receive a stipend from anglers for gasoline. Hays said the club is very successful and is rewarding to those that take part. "I can tell you it's a great bunch of young people. We work with them regularly. I can't say enough about this town and the support from local businesses, tackle shops, etc." Anyone interested in donating to help Lopez attend the national tourney should call Hays at 863-763-2332. The nationals will include 82 other junior anglers from across the U.S. Lopez said he really enjoyed his experience at the state tournament. He caught the big sh around 10 a.m. and although he lost a couple of sh during the day, he was able to hang on for the victory. He said the big sh was quite the catch. "He exploded on the bait, took it down, they waited for a minute and tried to jerk," he explained. Lopez' goal is to continue to sh and to one day compete in the FLW pro tour. Hays said she is very proud of the fact that almost all of the anglers that have joined the club have graduated from high school. She said the kids must maintain a C average in school to participate. She noted they also learn a lot in the club. "We teach them sportsmanship, water safety, and as much as we can. Our boat captains are good teachers on the water," she added. "Our hope is they become productive people who love the sport of shing and continue to sh." Nine boat captains from Okeechobee contributed to the state tournament this year. Hays also thanked the parents for their support.

Arrested Friday, June 14, w ere Timothy Cox, 34, and his wife Marian Cox, 31. Timothy was charged w ith the felonies of sale of methamphetamine (two counts), possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell (three counts) and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the county jail on a bond of $50,500. Marian Cox was charged with one felony count of possession of methamphetamine. Her bond was set at $2,500. Jail records indicate she has been released on bond. An arrest report by a task force detective stated that the couple was stopped by task force detectives and when Marian got out of the vehicle a cut drinking straw fell from her lap. A residue in that straw was eld tested and indicated a positive result for the presence of meth, added the report. When questioned by the detectives, Timothy allegedly admitted to handing his wife a plastic baggie to hide on her person that contained several small baggies. The smaller baggies, continued the report, contained meth. Detectives reportedly searched the woman and found the suspected meth, which was eld tested and that test indicated a positive result for the presence of methamphetamine. The suspected meth weighed 4.9 grams, added the report. Detectives then searched the couple's home on S.E. 57th Drive and reportedly found a spoon, syringe, pipe and scale in their bedroom closet. The report went on to state that a glass smoking pipe with burn marks and residue, packages of plastic baggies and a baggie containing a residue were also found in the master bedroom closet. According to another detective with the task force meth is currently being sold on the street for $100 to $120 a gram.

Gone CoastalBy Alan Peirce and guest columnist Amanda NalleyFWC I’d like to talk a little about one of the imp ortant outreach and education programs we have at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC): our Women’s Fishing Clinics. Since I haven’t yet h ad the opportunity to attend one of these events, this month, I’m passing the pen over to guest writer Amanda Nalley to tell y ou more about learning the lifetime sport of saltwater shing.Because we aren’t born knowing how to tie a clinch knotNot everyone is as lucky as me. I can’t remember how old I was when someone rst stuck a shing pole in my hand. At my grandpa’s pond, I learned the basics: patience, how to not hook your nger or the person behind you, and how to not be afraid of touching that slimy sh. Unlike me, many women, and many men for that matter, didn’t get the experience I did growing up around the water. And w hile shing is fun, it doesn’t always come naturally. New and better gears are invented. The mind, out of practice, forgets how to tie an improved clinch knot. Just trying to gure out which way to hold a shing pole for the rst time can be daunting. It’s with this in mind that, in 2010, the idea for the Women’s Fishing Clinic was conceived. These free, statewide events aim to educate current and future adult anglers who would like to learn about Florida’s natural resources. Participants learn the difference between a spinning rod and a bait-caster, the basics on how to use a rod, how to cast a line without hooking someone behind you and how to toss a cast net and actually catch something. Local shing guides will teach you the tricks of the trade. The sessions help folks get comfy with being on the water, while an FWC of cer reviews boating safety. And, as if that isn’t enough, at the end of the day, you’ll get to test out your new skills with your own shing experience. Think you already know it all? Everyone needs a refresher on how to be an ethical angler now and then. Participants will also learn how recreational anglers impact local sheries and what they can do as “ sheries managers.” One thing is the importance of and how to actually use a de-hooking device. Another lesson is how to catch a sh with a circle hook and why sh handling can make or break your catch-and-release experiences. This course is also great for visitors to the state who want to make sure they know what they are doing before hitting the shore. The rst Women’s Fishing Clinic was held on March 5, 2010, in Crystal River. It was a small program, drawing only four participants but allowing more student-teacher contact. Since then, the program has expanded into new areas, including Jacksonville, Cedar Key, Panama City and Melbourne Beach, with each program drawing more and more attendees. Now, in the close of the second year, the Women’s Fishing Clinic is casting into 2013 with high expectations and new locations on the horizon, including Pensacola, Daytona, West Palm Beach, Port Charlotte and St. Petersburg. The next Women’s Fishing Clinic will be June 22 at MacArthur State Park in North Palm Beach, 10900 Florida A1A. Register today, as the event is limited to 20 participants. The clinics also are always in need of experienced angler volunteers. For more information, to volunteer or to register, contact Jennifer Saranzak at 352543-9219 or Jennifer.Saranzak@MyFWC. com. Also check out Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!, another program for women interested in learning more about saltwater shing. The FWC participates in and sponsors the program.
