Page 9 Facility losing Medicaid funding; contractor suing for $150,000By Eric KoppOkeechobee News The future of the Okeechobee Rehabilitation Facility, as well as that of its executive director, became very bleak Tuesday with an announcement from Tallahassee that the facility is losing its Medicaid funding. The facility is currently under investigation by no less than three different state agencies. While Regional Captain Detective Vance Akins con rmed that his agency, the Division of Insurance Fraud, has opened an investigation, he said he could not comment on the nature of that probe. Two other state agencies the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs and the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) are also investigating the local facility but they declined to state the nature of their investigations. As a result of its probe, an APD of cial sent this newspaper an email Tuesday afternoon stating it was basically shutting off its Medicaid funding to the facility. "(The) APD is terminating its Medicaid waiver agreement with the Okeechobee Rehab Center. The termination will occur 30 days from now. The provider was noti ed today (Tuesday, Oct. 15)," said APD Communications Director Melanie Etters in that e-mail. The non-pro t Okeechobee facility, run by Executive Director Nancy Zeigler, was established to improve the quality of life for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. And while it appears none of the local facility's clientele have been mistreated, the handling of the facility itself has reportedly been run in a questionable manner. A lengthy investigation by this newspaper has found: No one in a leadership capacity with the local facility has led the required fund raising paperwork with the state; Leadership continues to refer to the facility as "the Arc," even State probes local rehab Special to the Okeechobee News/ Shirley PalmerOHS Band competes in Space Coast ClassicThe Okeechobee High School Band competed in the Space Coast Classic competition at Merritt Island High School on Oct. 12.

Kindness appreciatedI would like to share a random act of kindness from one of your readers and tell that kind reader thank you. This summer I worked with my students for three weeks in a Jump Start program. Your newspaper printed pictures about all of the opportunities my students had. In mid-August, I received a thank you note from an anonymous person and they thanked me for volunteering my time and working with my students. A one hundred dollar bill was included in the card. I had never had this type of experience and only thought these things happened on TV. The same students from this summer are again my students this school year. We had our rst book fair this week at Everglades Elementary. I took the one hundred dollars and all of my students to the book fair for a new book. My class would like to thank this person. It means so much that your reader felt my students were so deserving. As soon as we returned to the classroom, the students took out their new books and were excited to start reading. Your reader's generosity is truly appreciated by me and m y wonderful students! Thank you, Emily Streelman Third Grade Teacher Everglades Elementary Okeechobee hauntings I worked at the old jail for several years during the late 80s, early 90s and can tell you there were a lot of strange noises in that place. We just chalked it up to the huge rats in the place. There were rats as big as house cats upstairs and sometimes downstairs. Sometimes things sounded like they were falling over upstairs but.... There was a lot of stuff stored upstairs and once again we just thought it was the rats.Power outages FP&L is in a "trapped" condition. Many years ago when other power companies "learned" the lessons of snow, traf c hazards, damage by the sun, heat, etc., on power poles, and... complaints by municipalities, developers, etc., they, FP&L, learned nothing. They still buy poles, replace poles, and keep trying to avoid spending any money. Put the consumer "grids" below ground. Expensive in the short run, but cost-effective in the long run. Lord knows the county, state and feds have buried everything else. The argument that the water table is too high does not hold merit. Neither does the excuse that "water" will damage the lines. If water damaged the lines, etc., then there would be a complete and catastrophic failure every time it rained. Halloween I am a little disappointed that Main Street won't have the Halloween party at the Agri-Civic Center this year. I hope the churches are ready for big crowds at their event in the park because people will be looking for somewhere to go. Why does Okeechobee High School schedule homecoming for the week of Halloween? Homecoming can be at any home game. Why pick the one that is the week of Halloween? It puts an unfair burden on families who have some younger kids as well as kids in high school. Can we have one special event at a time, please? This year, we have the Homecoming parade on Halloween Day. I am disappointed that they won't have the Halloween party at the Agri-Civic Center this year. A lot of people enjoyed that party. People who plan to take their kids to the Halloween event the churches are planning in the park should help out by donating bags of candy to the event. If every family that goes to the park donates a big bag of candy, there would be plenty. Don't expect other people to do all the donating.County building plans What is the reason for building this? Record storage and drivers license of ce? Not good enough. We need to replace everybody that thinks this is a good idea. All the vacant county buildings and we can't nd storage? is the income from dl's going to pay for this? County Commissioners do whatever their bosses tell them and they know who they are a bunch of puppets that warm seats. Time to re-elect yet? We all know times are hard. Oh, that will bring money into our local contractors in this county and their families. But then again, our good county doesn't hire locals for any of their construction projects. Wasted tax dollars yet again! Another building? When we have so many empty ones already. Hey, I have a great idea. Lets use the Agri-Center, it already is built and costing thousands to run. Take note of how each commissioner votes on issues important to you and remember it at election time. The one with the most signs shouldn't always be the one who wins. Seems to me that something got lost in a memo somewhere: We have buildings here that are vacant. We have a budget that is out of balance. Law enforcement has lay offs. And yet we are seeking to construct a building. Incredulous! I won't forget! It would set a bad precedent to move money from the capital outlay fund to operating fund. They have in the past used that fund to save up money until they had enough to do a major project, which makes good scal sense. Wiping the capital outlay fund savings account out to help with operating expense for one year is not sustainable. Operating funding needs a sustainable source that you can count on year after year.Debt ceiling "We are a nation that has a government not the other way around," said Ronald Reagan. No, Ronald, it has become the other way around. We have become a government that has a nation. Narcotics task force neededI'm Eric Christensen. I have to comment on the recent news of cutbacks Sheriff May is being forced to make. One bothers me very bad and affects this whole county. That is cutting back the drug task force! We all recently have read the crystal meth houses raided and arrests made. These scumbags will run wild if the drug task force is even downsized. And when that happens these creeps will do anything to get their next "high." I was married 31 years to Roberta "Bobbi" Christensen, a friendly greeting hardworking server at Golden Corral. We lived a good pure life, working hard, not bothering anyone. She loved her family, her co-workers, her friends, and her customers. She lived to help others. She was brutally murdered in the middle of the day in our own home by a neighbor we never knew was a habitual offender, living free among us. He tried to rob her of her hard-earned tip money. She had paid bills and only had $6.55. He murdered her and stole a television so he could sell i t and get his next high. Don't think this cannot happen to you, because it can. Don't think a loved one o r friend cannot be taken away. Well for many of you, don't forget this has already happened to you, losing "Bobbi" and right here in this small town, shockingly unexpectedly losing your friendly kind red haired lil' lady. Be prepared this can happen again. I for one report anyone I see selling drugs. I turn in tags. I will dime out anyon e I see in a heart beat and I want that phon e to continue to be answered when I mak e that call. Do not reduce the drug task force. Increase it. Find donations, grants, anything! Find ways, but do not cut this department. A family member or friend may be the nex t victim of these heartless animals that liv e among us and we never know who they ar e until it's too late!

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Okeechobee News October 16, 2013 Tractor Supply Company (TSC) is helping 4-H through the annual Paper Clover Campaign. This event marks the fourth year of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store fund raiser, bene ting state and local 4-H programming in each of the communities where a TSC or Del's Farm and Feed Supply store is located. The fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign is taking place now through Oct. 20. Shoppers at Tractor Supply Company and Del's Farm and Feed Supply stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in 1,200 communities by choosing to purchase paper clovers for a $1 at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H, and will support 4-H youth development program activities in the communities where stores are located. "Through this highly impactful community event, we have been able to raise funds nationally over the past few years for thousands of 4-H youth across the country," said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. "We are more than pleased with the success of the 4-H Paper Clover Campaign, and we are even more honored to continue the tremendous partnership that drives support for 4-H clubs and programs in the communities of more than 1,200 Tractor Supply Company and Del's Feed and Farm Supply stores." In just four years, across 48 states, the TSC 4-H Paper Clover Campaign has provided more than $2 million to 4-H across the country. All proceeds raised directly bene t 4-H, with 70 percent of funds being returned to state and local 4-H programs. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics. "Our Paper Clover efforts are one of the key ways our stores can give back to the community," said John Wendler, senior vice president of Marketing for Tractor Supply Company. "By providing essential funding for hundreds of thousands of 4-H young people, we are able to support local organizations that are important to both our customer and our Team Members. We're proud to help improve the many communities in which we have stores through our partnership with 4-H. That is what Tractor Suppl y is all about." Once again, funds donated during the national campaign will be tracked online and recorded by state and by store. Visit www. tractorsupply.com/4-H for more information on the fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign and to view the donation tracker. Okeechobee County 4-H Club members will be in the Okeechobee Tractor Suppl y store this week to help promote 4-H programs and encourage local donations. Tractor Supply hosts 4-H Paper Clovers fundraiser though the Florida Arc has told them not to; The local leadership apparently was not truthful to state agencies in reference to the criminal background of some of its employees; The facility owes over $3,000 to a local utility; and, A lien has been placed against the local building because the facility owes a local contractor over $150,000. According to The Arc of Florida web site, the organization was founded in 1950 as the National Association of Parents and Friends of Mentally Retarded Children. In 1980 that name was changed to the Association of Retarded Citizens of the United States. By 1991, the moniker was changed to The Arc and, for the rst time, the word retarded was removed from the organization's name. It should be noted that a number of phone calls have been made to the facility and Mrs. Zeigler, but none have been returned. It should also be mentioned that a public records request was also made by this newspaper via registered mail, but Mrs. Zeigler did not respond or ll that request so a formal complaint has been led against her with the District 19 State's Attorney Of ce. A phone call seeking comment was also made to Isidoro Estrada, chairman of the board for the facility, but it was not returned by newspaper deadline.What we have uncovered so far: Because the local facility has not paid its dues, it is not allowed to use the title "Arc" in its name. Deborah J. Linton, executive director of The Arc of Florida, said in a telephone interview that the local facility has not paid its dues in over a year. In a letter dated Feb. 3, 2012, Ms. Linton stated that if Mrs. Zeigler did not contact her about being in arrears The Arc of Florida "... will have no other choice but to disaf liate by March 3, 2012." In that phone interview, Ms. Linton said no one from Okeechobee Rehab Facility ever contacted her. A spokesperson with the Department of A griculture and Consumer Affairs said they are investigating Mrs. Zeigler and the local facility because they have not registered with that department prior to soliciting contributions from the public. "Solicitors of contributions must register with the agency every year," explained Erin Gillespie, Department of Agriculture press secretary. When asked how long it has been since the local facility registered with the state, Mrs. Gillespie replied: "The group was not previously registered at all." In a letter from that department to the local facility, it is stated that: "... if it is determined that you are operating in violation of Chapter 496, Florida statutes, the department will seek its available legal remedies. Failure to comply with this law may subject you to nes up to $1,000 per violations." Since the local group has never registered, it has not been determined if nes will be levied or how much they would be. APD Communications Director Melanie Etters also said her agency has an open investigation underway into the practices of the local rehabilitation facility. While the totality of the probe is not known, it is known that the hiring practices of the local organization do not conform to state statutes namely, the hiring of convicted felons. "All APD providers must comply with the background screening requirements speci ed within section 393.0655 of the Florida statutes, which lists the speci c crimes classi ed as disqualifying' offenses." She went on to state that "... all direct service providers (who have contact with clients) must have successfully passed all background screening requirements prior to employment." It has come to light that at least two current employees at the local facility are convicted felons and are under investigation by the APD. Both Jeannie Bramlett and Glenda Renee Certain have at least one felony conviction on record. Arrest and court records show that Bramlett was arrested Dec. 17, 2001, on felony charges of possession of hydrocodone, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, ling a false and fraudulent insurance claim and grand theft. On Dec. 17, 2002, she entered a plea of no contest to those charges and was adjudicated guilty by Judge Burton C. Conner. She was sentenced to one year of community control and one year of probation. She also was required to pay restitution and testify truthfully against a co-defendant. Certain was rst arrested Sept. 25, 2006, on a felony charge of grand theft. Because that le has been sealed, its not known what happened when her case went before a circuit court judge. However, she was arrested again for grand theft on Dec. 1, 2009. Circuit court records show she was adjudicated guilty on April 19, 2010, and was sentenced to one year in the Okeechobee County Jail. According to the state, Bramlett and Certain can work at the facility but they cannot have any contact with any of the clients. And while the state was told that Bramlett worked in an of ce and had no contact with the clients, this newspaper has obtained a photograph of her with clients on a eld trip to Fort Pierce. She is listed as the marketing director for the local facility, while Certain apparently works as receptionist. More information was requested from Mrs. Zeigler in the form of that public records request but, as of this writing, she has had no contact with this newspaper. A lawsuit was led May 14, 2010, against the Okeechobee facility by local attorney Tony Young on behalf of his client, Creech Construction. That suit alleges the facility owes Creech Construction $154,831.34 for the costs of labor, services and materials on the facility's building at 403 N.W. Second Ave. The construction company has also led a mechanic's lien against the countyowned building being leased by the rehab facility. Mr. Young said because the building is owned by the county, Creech Construction cannot seize the building to satisfy the lawsuit. However, he said, his client can seize items inside the building that are used by the facility. Allegations levied in the lawsuit are denied by the facility. As of Sept. 9, 2013, the facility had an outstanding balance of $3,400.54 for water and services provided by the Okeechobee Utility Authority (OUA). And even though the county owns the building and is named on the bill with the facility, Okeechobee County administrator Robbie Chartier said the county "... does not intend to pay the OUA utility bill for services provided to the Okeechobee Rehab." When asked why the facility's bill was allowed to get so high, OUA director John Hayford explained that the county's name was on the account and there apparently was "... some disconnect between the county and the rehab facility. I think the county was thinking the rehab facility was paying." He went on to explain the common practice would have been to disconnect service, but governmental agencies are treated differently. Whether OUA is to be paid for its service to the facility is still to be determined, added Mr. Hayford. There is an entry on the facility's 2010 990 IRS form that indicates an expense o f $422,503 "for removal of building actuall y owned by the county." When asked about this entry, Mrs. Chartier had no idea what building was being referred to on that form. She also was unclear how that expense could be itemized on the facility's IRS form when the alleged building would have been owned by the county. That same IRS form indicates that Mrs. Zeigler, who had a salary of $44,599 at that time, was not only the executive director o f the facility but also sat on the board as the treasurer. And while this is not statutoril y forbidden, the IRS does advise against it. According to IRS regulations 501(c)(3), or nonpro t organizations, should adopt a con ict of interest policy that requires directors and staff to act without regard for personal interests. However, on that 2010 IRS form, it is indicated that the facility does not have a written con ict of interest policy nor does it have a whistleblower policy. A public records request was sent to Mrs. Zeigler by certi ed mail and was signed for by another employee at the facility. That request asked for: documents re ecting the hire date of Mrs. Zeigler, her current title, her current rate of pay as executive director and her rate of pay as a board member (if applicable). Also sought were: documents re ecting the hire date of Bramlett, her rate of pa y and a copy of her employment application; documents re ecting those same things for Certain; documents re ecting the number of clients being cared for at the facility; and, documents re ecting how much the facilit y is paid, per client, by the government and b y the client and/or their family or guardian. As stated above, the facility is leasing its building from the county for $1 a year. But as the landlord, Mrs. Chartier said none of the allegations mentioned above have a direct impact on that lease. Because the state investigations are ongoing, more information will be released once those probes have concluded. A RCContinued From Page 1

MurphyOkeechobee News The Okeechobee Education Foundation celebrated the success of their mission in Okeechobee Schools with a luncheon Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. The foundation’s scholarships now total over $2.7 million and annually assist teachers and students in the school system. The luncheon is a chance to show off the accomplishments of the foundation. Teacher Stella Fulleda of Central Elementary explained mini grants which helped her students take a eld trip to the Okeechobee land ll. The students learned all about the trash disposal process. In the end the school made a commitment to recycle and be a green school. A second grant was received to tour the Okeechobee Battle eld Park. Fulleda said the students became engaged in the novel, “A Land Remembered.” The grant went to purchase the novel for each fourth grade student in her class. “It’s just another way of teaching, and not only through a text book,” she explained. Ms. Fulleda also received a Kiwanis Club of Okeechobee/Marge and Dick Blair Memorial Elementary Math Mini Grant in 20112012. She purchased digital cameras for the students. The students went around the school with the camera and took photos of different geometric gures. The students then made a Powerpoint presentation to share with classmates and other students, parents and administrators, what they learned. Ms. Fulleda said this exposed students to new experiences and new technology. Teacher Michelle Pritchard started a project through a Rotary Club Mini Grant to visit the Veterans Administration Hospital in West Palm Beach. Students sent cards and letters and made gifts to give to veterans. “The kids felt they could make a difference. To put a smile on the face of veteran meant a lot to these children.” Randi Barnes, a teacher at Osceola Middle School and an OHS graduate, was a recipient of several scholarships to attend college. She told the crowd that she loves living in Okeechobee County. She remembered the generosity of the Okeechobee business community at scholarship night. This year she began her career teaching sixth grade math. “Thee local scholarships made my career possible. I believe giving back to our community is one of the best ways to say thank you. I hope scholarship night is a success for years to come,” she added. Third Grade teacher Judy Reed of Seminole Elementary also received several mini grants in the past two years. She grew up in Glades County and was able to receive some artifacts from the Seminole Tribe of Florida for her project. “Many students don’t know there is an Indian reservation near Okeechobee. My point was to educate them, study the early inhabitants of Florida, and end up at the Seminoles.” The students attended Field Day at Brighton in February. The students also presented a Powerpoint on the Seminole Tribe and Willie Johns, Tribal Historian, visited the class and brought artifacts from the tribe. The Pemayetv Emahakv School sent their student council, dressed in full Indian dress, to her classroom, to explain their culture. Another grant was used to create a small garden at Seminole Elementary. It has grown to a 10 by 50 feet enclosed garden in the past two years. “Your generosity has blessed my school. Seminole won a pilot program with the State Department of Agriculture, one of only four schools in the state,” she said. Ms. Reed said students are not traditional learners any more. She said teachers compete with video games and exciting technology. She said taking them outside, and offering hands-on learning, is a key to a teacher’s success. Betty Saf oti with the Indian River State College Take Stock in Children Program, explained that the scholarship provides tuition for two years at IRSC and two years at a public university of their choice. Last year, 40 scholarships were handed out. Okeechobee has the highest rate of completion of any o f the counties in the program. There are four students at OHS this year. They are provided mentors for support and guidance. The student must have a 2.0 grade point average, agree to stay out of drugs and crime, and graduate from high school. They must also meet federal poverty guidelines. The graduation rate is 76 percent higher than the state average. “These students do achieve with your support. They know they can reach their dream and their goals,” she added. Volunteer mentors are always needed for this program. Businesses and individuals can assist with donations to the foundation. For example, this year, Century Link, Donna Enrico, Betty Kelly, Florida Power and Light, Laura Sims and Sims and Younger CPAs, Linda Syfrett, Waste Management and WalMart were platinum sponsors, or those that donated $2,500. Gold sponsors included Big Lake Cancer Center, Jack Coker, Glades Electric Cooperative, Preferred Properties o f Okeechobee Realty, the Okeechobee Rotar y Club, Betty Williamson and Sonny Williamson, they each donated $1,000 to the Foundation’s cause. Silver sponsors ($500), included Burgess Supply Company, Glenn Sneider, Harbor Federal, Lifestyles and Healthcare, M Cross Ranch, Kelly Owens, Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuits, Publix Supermarket and Qualit y Air Conditioning. Friends of the Foundation who donated up to $500 this past year included Cassels and McCall Attorney’s of ce, Mike Costopoulos, Paula Daniel, Emor y Walker Company, Dr. Manuel Garcia, Group Insurance Solutions, Natalie Moody, Pat O’Connor, Sam Smith, Gwenda Thompson, Tabitha Trent, William and Toni Wiersm a and John Williams.

"The offensive line did great, and the defense did great. I feel we have the number one defense in the league. No one can score on us," he continued. Cherry said his lead blockers and all his teammates know the game and did a great job blocking in this game. He said it is fun to play with guys that know the game of football, "From the rst play, we hit the holes and had success and we felt comfortable after that. I love my team and give a shot to the man above, Jesus Christ, for the ability to play this game. I just think we played wonderfully." Offensive linemen Austin Cloud said both teams tried their best and his team really worked hard this week to prepare for this game.

It was a great team effort," he added. The juniors improved to 7-2 on the season.

On any given day, any team can beat us, I appreciate this moment and I thank my team for giving their all." Harvey had another strong game blocking, running and tackling. He said he felt the team played an excellent game. "We ran the ball like we should. We hit the holes harder and we held them on defense. I couldn't feel any better right now. It shows all our practice and hard work has paid off," he added. Luellman said he nearly fumbled on his late touchdown run as the ball someho w lodged on his back. The defenders didn't realize he had the ball until it was too late, "I thought I would fumble but I held it right there.
