TAMPA—The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) recently presented Okeechobee County Commissioners Frank Irby and Bryant Culpepper with the Certi ed County Commissioner (CCC) designation following their completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the association. Commissioners Irby and Culpepper were among the eight county commissioners to receive the certi cation during an awards ceremony held at the FAC Annual Conference in Hillsborough County, in late June. “I believe the Florida Association of Counties educational offerings has provided me w ith valuable training and insight into the responsibility of a county commissioner,” said Mr. Irby. “Most importantly, I learned how not to v iolate the Florida Sunshine Law,” said Mr. Culpepper. CCC certi cation is not a requirement to serve as a county commissioner in Florida. However, county commissioners may voluntarily enroll in the program and complete a series of courses totaling 42 hours. The coursework is designed to provide information and enhance skills relevant to a commissioner’s duties and responsibilities as an elected of cial. “This certi cation allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities,” said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. “The 337 graduates of this program is a testament to the importance of this curriculum to Florida’s public servants and our counties.” The CCC program coursework covers a variety of topics, such as county government roles and responsibilities, county government structure and authority, nancial management, ethics and sunshine law, negotiation skills, economic development, and effective communication. Completion of all coursework averages 12 to 18 months. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension sponsors this program. The county commissioners who received their CCC designation in 2013 are: Christopher Constance, Charlotte County; Bryant H. Culpepper, Okeechobee County; Stephen R. Deutsch, Charlotte County; Frank Irby, Okeechobee County; Frederick M. Knight, Hardee County; Nate McLaughlin, Flagler; Sean M. Parks, Lake County; Daniel Riddick, Bradford County. For 80 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule— the concept that government closest to the people governs best. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 publix.com/save ORRECEIVE UP TO $2,500 in rebates* and tax credits**with the purchase of a qualifying Lennox Home Comfort System.Special Financing Available* 208 SW 5th Avenue, Okeechobee, FL 34974 THIS SOLUTION IS NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT.DUST, MOLDAND POLLENMAKING YOUUNCOMFORTABLE? *Offer is valid only with the purchase of qualifying Lennox products.

Commissioner offers nancial planThis is a six-point alternative plan to Donny Oden’s plan (for new county construction and placement of the driver license building): 1) Postpone the building of the $1.5 million driver license-tax collector property appraiser building. 2) Spend the $1.5 million from the Infrastructure tax money for the rehabilitation of Okee-Tantie Campgrounds. 3) Hire a campground manager on a oneyear contract with a two-year extension with a base salary and performance-based bonus plan. This will avoid paying an expensive bene t package. Staff will come from workcamper style employment similar to K.O.A. Staff will be given the use of an R.V. site in exchange for their employment. At $30 per night times 300 sites, this will generate approximately $9,000 per day. That equates to $3.28 million yearly. This does not include revenue from the store, or fuel sales from the marina. 4) Move the Driver License Bureau to the auditorium located between the Building and Zoning Department and the Health Department. 5) Locate all county record storage to th e recently gutted Advanced Stone Building a t the Airport Industrial Park. The county owns this building and it will be very dif cult to sell or lease as there is very limited parking and does not have access to the runway. Additional air conditioned compartments could be constructed inside as more spac e is required. 6) Relocate Road and Bridge to the Wooley Sheds property so all equipment could b e maintained under cover, out of the weather. The county currently owns this building also. The current Road and Bridge Maintenanc e Building and gas pumps could stay wher e they currently exist. All of these changes could be accomplished at little cost to the taxpayers and would suf ce until the economy recovers a t a later time. All dollars for architectural fees for th e new Driver License Building could still b e used at a later date and simply updated to meet current building codes. This six-step plan will restore economi c stability while satisfying the county’s needs without raising taxes. Sincerely, Bryant H. Culpepper County Commissioner – District 2 Z immerman case In 2011, according to the FBI, black people were responsible for 90 percent of t he 2,649 black deaths in which the race of the perpetrator was known. It’s a similar s tory for whites. Of the 3,111 white deaths for which the race of the killer was known, 84.5 percent were other whites. The fact is interracial murders are the exception, not t he norm. The people on TV claiming the Z immerman case is part of a bigger problem are not looking at the facts. It was a sad and isolated tragedy.County taxes I am paying too much now and I have homestead exemption.  We don’t get the services we pay for now. I have to live off what I make. Why is t he county any different?  Apparently about half of the residents in Okeechobee County don’t pay ad valorem property taxes. The ones who are paying t axes are already paying for way more than t hey are receiving due to the large percentage who don’t pay anything. Not sure how t o resolve this since you can’t do a per residence fee to cover law enforcement and law enforcement is the largest part of the ad valorem taxes. If you raise taxes on those who c urrently do pay, it is harder to bring in new b usinesses and bringing in new businesses is the only way to broaden the tax base.  I understand the county’s expenses are going up for things like health insurance. W elcome to the club. We citizens are also paying more out of our own pockets for health insurance, thanks to the Obamacare asco. We can’t afford to pay even more t axes on top of everything else.  Raising taxes would be a mistake. My home is average and I pay a lot of taxes in t his county. Quit building so many fancy b uildings. We have a lot of vacant buildings in this town. Why can’t the county rent one of them instead of building something new.  The Agri-Civic Center is a money pit.  We already pay higher taxes and water and sewer bills than most counties in Florida. They need to nd another way than higher taxes.  I make less money than I did ve years ago and my expenses have risen. We are all feeling the pinch. The county should do what the residents have had to do. Cut out any frills. Cut down expenses to what is absolutely necessary. Get rid of positions that were really just political favors, like hiring someone’s relative in exchange for political support. The county simply cannot afford all these employees.  If the county has to let staffers go, they should start with the “double dippers” as those people have a retirement check to fall back on. Just my opinion.  According to the article in the Sunday paper: MSTUs are subject to the same homestead exemptions as the ad valorem. Those who pay no property taxes now, would still pay no MSTU tax, leaving the burden on those already paying property taxes. The MSTU would only be levied on those living in unincorporated areas, not the city. The county could tax 10 mils in ad valorem and an additional 10 mils for the MSTU. We could, in our worst nightmare end up with 20 mils! Commissioners, do not do this to us. If you do, this county is done. We can’t afford it.  My property taxes, with homestead exemption, are just a little over $2,700 per year. It horri es me to think I might need to squeeze monies out of an already tight household budget to pay more county expenses ... but, that’s okay, let’s build that $2 million new building that we really don’t need right now. Let’s keep spending on things we want instead of cutting back to things we need.  We had our satellite cut off and now use antenna. I make my own home made washing liquid in order to save money. I shop at the thrift shops. There are many times I would love to buy a nice-smelling candle at the grocery store but I don’t because that same $2.99 can go towards a “need” versus a “want.” I budget, why can’t our commissioners? My parents taught me budgeting well through an old saying “Don’t let your wants outweigh your needs or you may just end up broke for choosing ash over practicality.” I believe this is a lesson our commissioners need to learn before we wind up like so many other cities and counties around the nation in bankruptcy court.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee NewsA local woman is facing a drug trafficking charge after members of the Narcotics Task Force allegedly found her to be in possession of over 60 oxycodone tablets. Shannon Nicole Cooper, 31, U.S. 441 S.E., was arrested Wednesday, July 17, on felony charges of trafficking in oxycodone and possession of methamphetamine. She was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Cooper is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on $28,000 bond. An arrest report by a task force detective indicated a traffic stop was conducted on a Ford pickup truck because it failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of S.E. 40th Avenue and S.R. 710. When detectives confronted Cooper they learned she apparently had a plastic sandwich bag hidden in her shorts. When she pulled the bag from her clothes the detectives seized the 64.5 oxycodone pills that were inside the bag, stated the report. Those pills, continued the report, weighed 6.7 grams. That same plastic bag also held a cellophane cigarette wrapper in which the detectives found a smaller plastic bag that reportedly contained a suspicious substance. When that substance was field tested it allegedly indicated a positive result for the presence of methamphetamine. Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Remi did an exterior sniff of the truc k and gave a positive alert, stated the detective. According to the arrest report when the pickup was searched the detectives found: a container of suspected Spice; a glass pipe stuffed with a substance suspected of being Spice; a piece of a plastic drinking straw that had a white residue; and, two smoking pipes containing a residue. The residue found inside the smoking pipes was field tested and each one indicated a positive result for the presence o f meth, added the detective. The suspected Spice, added the detective, has been sent to the Indian River Crime Lab in Fort Pierce for analysis to determine if it contains any illegal substances. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 PROTECT YOUR ANIMALS FROM FLEAS, TICKS & MOSQUITOS Walpole Feed & Supply Co. 863-763-6905 Hwy 98 N • Okeechobee Stop by and see us today.Frontline • Advantage • Tri-Force Advantix • Fly Relief • Bronco Repel-X Mosquito Halt • Saber & Many More 7 Okeechobee News July 24, 2013 Local woman faces pill traf cking charge Shannon Cooper By Eric KoppOkeechobee NewsLocal deputies cleared up a pair of burglary cases and a stolen vehicle incident after they arrested an 18-year-old Okeechobee man. Christopher Justin Boney, 18, N.W. 176th A ve., Okeechobee, was arrested Saturday, July 20, on felony charges of burglary of an unoccupied vehicle (two counts) and grand theft-auto. He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of petit theft. Boney was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under an $8,000 bond. Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO) arrest reports show several different deputies were inv olved in the case that started to unfold when a man on S.W. 28th Street saw a shirtless man standing next to his work truck at 6:19 a.m. Saturday. When the victim saw his tool box in the back of the truck had been opened, he yelled at the shirtless man, who then ran from the home and jumped onto a Club Car golf cart and drove away, stated an arrest report by OCSO Deputy Cody Hurst. That shirtless man was later identi ed as Boney. Deputy Hurst indicated the victim then followed Boney and saw the man get off the golf cart and run into some woods near the 3100 block of S.W. 28th St. Deputy Hurst was then noti ed by fellow OCSO Deputy Marcus Collier that he had found Boney on S.W. 32nd Ave. Deputy Collier had turned onto that street and apparently saw Boney crawl out of a canal on the east side of the road. He then placed Boney under arrest. Deputy Hurst indicated in his report that while he was speaking with the victim, OCSO Deputy Matthew Crawford contacted him about a vehicle burglary on S.W. 28th St. According to Deputy Hurst’s report, Deputy Crawford and Deputy Robbie Lamb had searched the woods that Boney had entered and found a prescription pill bottle that had a woman’s name on the bottle. OCSO dispatch was contacted about the name on the bottle and then provided the deputies with an address. Deputy Crawford spoke with that woman and learned the medicine belonged to her, and it had apparently been taken out of her unlocked vehicle. That medicine was an allergy prescription, added the report. The arrest report goes on to point out that Deputy Crawford also located the owner of the golf cart, which had been stolen from a S.W. 28th St. home. The golf cart was not damaged, added Deputy Hurst. Deputy Hurst indicated allergy medication, which had an estimated value of $10, was the only thing missing from the woman’s car. The $2,500 golf cart was returned to its owner, pointed out the report.

The area’s pioneer heritage and history lie in the ranches and open range that frame the city limits. In the early part of the century, cattle roamed the open elds while cowboys moved their herds to market. With great pride Okeechobee citizens and visitors from around the state come together to celebrate the National Day of the A merican Cowboy. The purpose of such a celebration is to preserve our cowboy heritage, celebrate the contributions and share the lifestyle and labors of our cowboys and cowgirls, past and present. The National Day of the American Cowboy was rst sponsored in 2005 in the U.S. Senate by Wyoming’s late U.S. Senator, Craig Thomas. Nationally recognized on the fourth w eekend of July, the Okeechobee 2013 event is scheduled for Saturday, July 27, at the Agri-Civic Center. A highlight of the Okeechobee event is the annual cattle drive through the streets of Okeechobee.

This year the annual Cattle Drive will take place on Saturday, July 27, starting at 10 a.m. at Eli’s Western Wear and end at the Agri-Civic Center at around 11 a.m. At the center of the festivities will be two Cattlemen’s Ranch Rodeos. Approximately 20 teams will complete in this years’ event, with the top team grabbing a coveted seat at the State Finals in Kissimmee and gaining “bragging rights” among their peers for the remainder of the year. Among the events at the Ranch Rodeo competition will be Ranch Bronc Riding, Trailer Loading, Team Sorting and Team Branding. The rst rodeo will be at 1 p.m. There will be a horse auction after the rst rodeo. The second rodeo will start at 6 p.m. Admission is $10 per person; children under age 10 are free. In addition to the rodeos, Okeechobee is excited to have National Cattleman’s Artist of the Year 2013, Victor Milt.

We Treat Kids Too! By Dr. Ramesh Kumar Big Lake Cancer CenterHow many cancer patients would jump up and consider a treatment option that is proven to be highly effective, does not need surgery, painless, completed in 5 days or less, without signi“ cant side effects, w hile continuing to maintain their full level of activity and function? What is Cyberknife Radiation Therapy? Submitted Photo/ Big Lake Cancer Center Cyberknife: Cutting edge technology at work for our patients in Okeechobee. Radio surgery is a technique that utilizes specialized machines that allow large amounts of radiation to be delivered with sub millimeter accuracy thereby killing the cancers without damaging surrounding normal tissues. It is as simple as going out to get a chest x-ray! Cyberknife Robotic Radio surgery system, created at Stanford University over 10 years ago is unique and better than other systems in the fact that it is the only Radio surgery system that can achieve what is called real-time tracking and killing of tumor.Ž What kind of patients can be helped by Cyberknife? There are several situations too numerous to mention here where Cyberknife would be extremely useful and safe. The following are just a few of them: Patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia, pituitary tumors and tumors of the acoustic nerve called Acoustic Neuroma can avoid major surgical procedures on the brain by getting treated with Cyberknife. Patients with cancers of the brain, spine, lung and prostate are but a few of the cancers that can be helped with one to “ ve sessions of Radio Surgery. An article that was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2010 showed that patients with patients with lung cancer who received Radiosurgery had a survival rate of 55.8% at 3 years versus 20 to 35% for those patients treated with traditional radiation over several weeks. As one of our patients commented, if it is good for patients at Stanford University, it is good for patients from the Okeechobee area! If you or someone you know has any form of cancer, please call us so we can explore the possibility of treating it with this cutting edge technology. This 4.5 million dollar machine is available at the of“ ces of Dr. Kumar in Saint Lucie County. Courtesy transportation is available to get to this of“ ce for those patients in need.

MurphyOkeechobee News The 13-year-old all stars from the OCRA Dixie Youth baseball league split their rst two games at the Florida Dixie Youth Championships this weekend in Sebring. J.P. Gates tossed a shutout in the opener Saturday as Okeechobee fell to Spring Hill 6-0. Okeechobee rebounded with a strong performance on Sunday morning as they ripped all stars from Key West, 15-5. Okeechobee coach Brent Stuart reported the rst game didn't go well as the team couldn't get anything going on offense. They also made ve costly elding errors. Stuart said the team did better Sunday w ith their backs to the wall in the loser's bracket. "Sunday was a different story as we had strong pitching and a barrage of hits," he explained. Okeechobee did have some chances on Saturday but could not break through against Spring Hill. Dalton Mosser opened the scoring with a rst inning homerun. A three-run second buoyed by a two-run single by Gates and a key error at second base, gave Spring Hill a four-run advantage. Spring Hill's Gates nished out the scoring with a two-run home run off Tristen Root in the fth inning. Baron Stuart had a rst-inning single for Okeechobee and added a stolen base. Gabe Greseth had a fourth-inning single and a stolen base and a single in the sixth inning. Jared Joyner had a fth-inning single and Mason Adams had a base hit in the seventh inning.
