OHS soccer team beats Lincoln Park Academy ... Page 9 Stolen car involved in accident ... Page 10 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News By a 4-0 vote, Okeechobee County Commissioners Thursday chose to begin eviction proceedings to remove the Okeechobee Rehabilitation Facility from their county-owned building. The rehab facility lost its Medicaid funding Nov. 15 and was forced to close its doors. Because the facility no longer had any clients, the county claimed it to be in default on its lease. Because County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper is now a new member of the rehab facility’s board, he could not vote at the Dec. 12 meeting. A Nov. 19 letter from county attorney John Cassels Jr. stated the facility was in default because it had failed to pay its Okeechobee Utility Authority bill in a timely manner and now owes $3,400.54. The letter also stated the purpose for the lease was “developing, using, operating, maintaining and administering a nonpro t rehabilitation and education facility.” But, when the facility closed its doors it was no longer being used for that purpose, added the letter. At this point, it’s not clear just how long the eviction process will take. However, the letter asks for the “... peaceful surrender of the premises without damage and to forward any and all access keys... .” Prior to the board’s vote, Commissioner Culpepper vacated his seat and addressed his fellow commissioners as a member of the rehab’s board. His address centered around one Commission votes to evict rehabSee REHAB — Page 8 Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyPat Grant (right) received the State of Florida Migrant Advocate of the Year Award this year.

Lori Carlton, FDOT District One representative, requested the board’s endorsement of the draft tentative Work Program for FY2014/15 to FY2018/19 for Okeechobee County. The two major projects planned for 2014/15 are the widening of State Road 70 and work on the intersection of S.R. 70 and U.S. 441. She said they recently added a separate landscaping project for the S.R. 70 / U.S. 441 intersections. Other future projects include resurfacing work on U.S. 441.

Obamacare I can not wait until the next set of numb ers arrive on the scene of the crime... Unless he has 7 million by March-April, it could t urn into one of the worst federal nancial ascoes. Of note, the very base of his support (the 18-29 year olds) seem to be either ignoring or avoiding sign up. I can’t wait until the elections; talk about a show with drama, pathos, tragedy, etc.  I applaud Sen. Rubio. He has signed up for Obamacare ,even though he is exempt. He said that he doesn’t support Obamacare, he didn’t vote for it, and Congress should not be allowed to be exempt from a law t hat they voted in. He also said that he could not go back to the people he represents and t ell them that he has an insurance plan that t hey can’t have. Democrat Harry Reid who is forcing Obamacare on the American taxpayers has decided to exempt himself and his s taff from Obamacare. If this is such a great deal for the American Taxpayers than why w ould the biggest supporters of Obamacare exempt themselves? There was an email t hat was sent out in the Capital warning everyone to not trust the Obamacare sign up info. Even the people who created this mess are warning their staff to not trust it.Turn signals This time of year when the roads are busier, everyone should be more aware of the importance of driving safely. Use your turn signs before you change lanes or turn. Let the other drivers know what you are planning to do. None of us want to have an accident. If you just communicate a little more with the other drivers, you can help avoid a crash.Charity Many of the clothes that Americans donate to charity are not given to people in need but are bundled up, shipped to third world countries and sold in markets. The biggest downside to this is that most of these African nations once had thriving textile industries which have been decimated because the textile companies cannot compete with the prices of the second hand goods from the States. People no longer have jobs and items once exported from the African nations around the world no longer contribute to the economy of those countries. By giving clothes to charity we are often helping to perpetuate poverty instead of alleviate it. Thus we are face with a double edged sword.Elf on the shelfDoes anyone else nd the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ Christmas story a little disturbing? A doll is supposedly watching children and reporting back to Santa. Or maybe he actually works for the NSA and is reporting on their parents to Obama. Walmart donation appreciatedRegrettably, in listing all the helpers for the Okeechobee 600 Blood Roundup, I did what I was so afraid of doing--I missed a contributor. We thank Walmart for providing us with so many choice salads and goodies to feed our workers and wish to apologize for omitting them from our previous list. If I have missed any more, please let me know. Raye Deusinger Roundup Chairman100 mile clubRunning and physical activity have become a major part of the school week at Rock Solid Christian Academy this year since the school launched the 100 Mile Club. The Active Schools Acceleration Project (ASAP) awarded Rock Solid a $1,000 grant to start the 100 Mile Club at the school. The goal is to get students and their families active and ght against childhood obesity. Nearly 80% of the students and several of their parents have joined the club and track their miles each week! Once the students reach 25 miles, they receive a t-shirt and a “check” on their shirt. For each 25 miles they earn, they receive another check on their shirt and a prize such as a golden pencil or armband. All of the students who reach 100 miles by the end of the school year will receive a gold medal. Students have the opportunity to earn popsicle sticks during recess and after school for each lap they run or walk. Each week, their sticks are totaled and their new total miles are given to them. They LOVE to “get their miles” each Monday! RSCA also began having family days once a month for students to earn more miles. T hey’ve been to the high school track, Oakview Baptist and the Storm water Treatment Area. Students who participated in the Christmas parade earned miles for walking that night. In January, the family event will also b e a fundraiser for the school. The RSCA Resolution Run will be Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014 a t 7:30 am at the school. This is a 5K race tha t is open to the entire community! T-shirts will be given to the rst 100 registrants and goody bags with a water bottle, towel and ashlight will be given to the rst 150 registrants. Awards and giveaways include SeaWorld and Aquatic tickets, gift certi cates to Publix, Cabot Cheese, Fleet Feet Sport, Pizza Heaven and Road ID and Thirty-On e merchandise. Breakfast will be provided fo r all who participate. Register at active.com o r print a form from rscasoldiers.com. Than k you for supporting Rock Solid Christian Academy!

They taught me how to love and care about people. I feel my job is to missionary and advocate for the people,” she said. Ms. Grant said it felt amazing to earn the state award but also to appear before the Okeechobee school board and receive this honor. She said it meant a lot to her that some of the students she has assisted showed up to honor her at the meeting. Ms. Grant retired recently but is now volunteering in the community and likes to help where she can, especially with senior citizens. She also is known for helping start the stepper program at Yearling Middle School, something she herself learned while in college. “I advocate for all students in general. It doesn’t matter what their race or nationality is, I just love people and I advocate for all of them,” she added. The board honored several athletes this month including members of the OHS volleyball team that nished District runners up, OHS swim team regional quali ers, girl’s golf regional quali ers, boys golf regional quali ers, and cross country district champion Tabatha Henry. Kutter Crawford received accolades for his work for the boy’s golf team, Erin Hutson for the volleyball team, and Kirsten Doney for the girls golf team. Retirements noted this month included OHS custodian Jimmie McNeil who served 26 years in the system and ESE paraprofessional Olive Williams. In business actions the board expelled a freshman at the Okeechobee Achievement Academy for possession of an illegal substance on campus. The board of cially rati ed the classi ed contract for this year which was recently overwhelmingly approved by union members in a vote of 188-2. The board also approved a separation agreement and general release with Everglades Elementary School teacher Stephanie Rowley. She had been suspended without pay at last month’s meeting. Coordinator of Staff Development Barbara James intends to leave the district on Feb. 3, 2014. The board also approved school improvement plans presented by Central Elementary, Osceola Middle and Seminole Elementary School. Central principal Rand y Paulson said he has honored each student who shows learning gains each month. Mr. Paulson intends to retire at the end of the school year. Seminole principal Matt Kof f said he school closed the gap with the state average in fth grade reading and math last year. In fact, the school ranked 137 out o f all 3,053 schools in math improvement and 65th out of 1,759 elementary schools. He said the school strived to improve their grade from C this year. He said the school maintained a C this year without the safet y net provided by the state. Writing scores will be the key to an improved grade this year. As of last week the school had read over 16,000 books during the school year. Seminole also earned a Department o f Agriculture and Department of Health grant. Assistant principal Brian Barrett said the grant encourages students to learn more about living healthier, and to be physicall y active in class. Parents receive a letter that explains what the school is doing to help their child be healthier. Nutritionists come into the classroom and explain healthy fruit and vegetables. They also received $1,000 to purchase physical education supplies. Mr. Koff said there is talk of a tness trail on the campus property that might be funded through grant dollars. Osceola Middle School principal Sean Downing said there are so many changes going on in education which includes changes to no child left behind, the next generation sunshine state standards, race to the top, common core, FCAT 2.0, and new assessment tests called PARCC. OMS had a reduction in staff with elimination of a Dean, media specialist, ESE paraprofessional and hours for an ESE clerk. There are 14 new teachers on campus. 17 out of 26 teachers are teaching a new grade level this year. OMS was a C in 2011, 2012, and 2013. “It’s not rosy, it’s not sunshine, but we have to stay here at least if not improve,” he told the board. His main goals are to increase the percentage of students scoring pro cient in reading which is currently 44 percent. Another goal is to improve recruitment and retention of high quality instructional staff. He noted students are required to read more each day in class. Another goal is to increase student attendance. SCHOOLContinued From Page 1 simple appeal: “Give us 90 days before making a decision. “Please, please, give us some time to sit down and gure out what happened,” he asked of the board. “To close the facility down is wrong.” Commissioner Culpepper explained to the board that an investigation by the state’s Division of Insurance Fraud will soon be over and that neither he nor facility board president Isidoro ‘Sid” Estrada can do anything until that probe is completed. But according to that agency’s Regional Captain Vance Akins, the investigation is still ongoing and will continue for as long as it takes. Another thing that bothered the board w as a mechanic’s lien placed on the facility by Creech Construction. In a lawsuit led May 14, 2010, the construction company alleges that facility still owes $154,831.34 for the costs of labor, services and materials on the facility’s building at 403 N.W. Second A ve. Allegations levied in that suit are denied by the facility and its local attorney, Colin Cameron. Mr. Estrada and Commissioner Culpepper told the board the facility had received money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pay for repairs brought about by hurricanes. However, they continued, rehab executive director Nancy Zeigler refused to pay the contractor because some of the work was not done correctly. “If Mrs. Zeigler refused to pay the contractor, the money should still be there,” offered Mr. Cassels to the board. But when Commissioner Joey Hoover asked Jeannie Bramlett, the former marketing director for the facility, if the FEMA money w as still available, she did not answer him. Instead, she told the board “we found ourselves in a bad dream” and indicated she and Mrs. Zeigler were told not to comment on accusations by Mr. Cameron. “You’ve only heard one side of the story,” she added. When Commissioner Hoover then asked her about the lien, she told him she had no knowledge of any lien placed against the property. It should be pointed out that Mrs. Bramlett is at the center of an ongoing investigation because she is a convicted felon. According to the state, Mrs. Bramlett was allowed to work at the facility but she was not to be allowed to have any contact with the clients. But a photograph was taken of her and the clients on a eld trip to Fort Pierce. She was arrested in 2001 on felony charges of possession of hydrocodone, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, ling a false and fraudulent insurance claim and grand theft. In 2002 she entered a plea of no contest to those charges and was adjudicated guilty. She was sentenced to one year of community control and one year of probation. Just before the board voted, Mr. Cassels told them they had three choices: one do nothing if they wanted to give the facility more time; two extend the default period; or, three instruct the administration to move forward with the eviction. “This is not a three-day eviction. It could be a contested matter,” he advised the board. “Let us get the bills paid off so it doesn’t die with a black eye,” pleaded Mr. Culpepper. “I’m here to save this organization. Put your personal feelings for me aside -one time.” Commissioner Domer made a motion to proceed with the eviction, and Commissioner Hoover seconded the motion. “This is an extremely sensitive subject that I have had to deal with in the past,” said Commissioner Domer. “But at this time, that organization is in default. That is a fact.” Commissioner Frank Irby told Commissioner Culpepper the decision is not about him, but a contractual agreement. “Because they have lost their Medicaid contract, they are essentially out of business,” he said. And with that, the board of cially closed the facility’s doors. REHABContinued From Page 1 “This is an extremely sensitive subject that I have had to deal with in the past.

Dec. 23 9 Okeechobee News December 13, 2013 By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Wilson Barahona had three goals and an assist as Okeechobee High School remained undefeated in an impressive 6-1 victory over Lincoln Park Academy in boys soccer action Monday at Brahman Stadium. Okeechobee fell behind 1-0 before putting six goals in the net against the Greyhounds in front of a partisan and supportive crowd. Angel Alvarez scored two goals in the second half. Brian Guerrero had a goal and two assists for Okeechobee, who improved to 5-0 in the district and 7-0 overall. OHS coach Lonnie Sears said the team appeared rusty early in the match but picked up their effort and intensity with about 10 minutes to go in the rst half and started to play like they should. "I'm not real satis ed because were not where w e need to be against a team like that. Wilson Barahona played his heart out tonight and started to put some pressure on their defense. He gave us that win tonight," he added. Barahona said the team has done well all season and responded well to the early de cit. "We had a lot of opportunities to score due to nice passes. Angel had two goals and I'm really happy for him because he tries really hard and we appreciate him," he added. Okeechobee played without two top starters Devin Jimenez and Jose Ponce Deleon who have missed time with injury. Jimenez suffered a serious knee injury but is expected to play again after the holidays. Sears has moved Daniel Nunez to defensive sweeper to make up for the loss of the two seniors. "It is huge missing those two guys because we only have freshmen and sophomores back there leading the charge, putting Daniel at sweeper also hurts us at mid eld," he added. Okeechobee was expected to be tested at home on Wednesday when they hosted district rival South Fork. Barahona said the Lincoln Park match was a good tune up and he had the Bulldogs circled on the calendar. "The entire team must play together and as a team. I hope our two seniors recover quickly and come back to play with us," he added. Sears said as long as the team passes up front like they did against Lincoln Park, they should continue to be a high scoring squad, "We are dangerous (in transition), that is our forte. It's not the way I always want to play but when we pass well up front we can make opponents look silly." Lincoln Park fell to 1-6 on the season. Barahona lifts OHS to 6-1 soccer win Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyBrian Guerrero (#7 in white) races after the ball during the rst half of Monday's match at OHS. By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Yearling Middle School out scored Osceola Middle School 16-5 in a decisive second quarter and went on to defeat the Warriors 47-35 to continue a long winning streak against their cross town rivals on Monday night. Robert Futch had 12 points, Lamar Williams had eight points, and Jose Rodriguez chipped in with seven points for Yearling. Ja J uan Cherry had 12 points and Evan Neal added eight points for Osceola. Osceola was hurt in the rst half as Neal w ent to the bench with three fouls after only ve minutes of play. Cherry also played with three fouls for most of the game. Yearling led 13-6 after the rst quarter as Williams had six points, three rebounds and three steals. The Bulls took advantage of Cherry's time on the bench in the second quarter going on a quick 8-0 run to go into the locker room with most of the momentum. Osceola coach Demario Coleman said the team could have done better in the rst half. "I was really disappointed in my players because we didn't play Osceola basketball like we are capable of playing," he said. Things improved in the second half as they out scored Yearling but never got the game close. "We did better in the second half as we got parents involved as they talked to their players during halftime in the locker room. I appreciate the parental support we've received this season," he added. Yearling coach Mike Wharin said he got a good effort from all of his players. All 10 of his players played signi cant minutes and contributed. He said a key to the season this year will be how well his bench players produce this year. "We needed to go deeper on the bench and we were able to do that tonight," he added. He praised the contributions of players like Zach Wharin, Bracen Harvey and Elton Pelt for the spark they provided off the bench. Kysell Richardson and Malcolm Chambers both had six points to lead the balanced Yearling score book. Wharin said having a lot of players score points only helps a team. "IT was a typically emotional rivalry game and I think Osceola has de nitely got talent. They displayed some quickness but our defense was stellar tonight," he added. Osceola will host Oslo on Thursday while Yearling will be on the road at Sebastian Middle School.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A stolen car was apparently involved in an accident, but who took the vehicle and w ho was driving it at the time of the crash remains a mystery. According to a report by Deputy Tammy Sera ni, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), the car was reported stolen Monday, Dec. 9, when the owner noticed at 5:15 a.m. their 2013 Hyundai Sonata was gone. The owner told Deputy Sera ni the car w as last seen around 10 or 11 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, when it was parked in front of the v ictim's residence. Deputy Sera ni went on to state the owner had not been late making payments on the car and had not given anyone the keys to the car. The owner did add, however, that a spare key was kept in the car's glove box. But, added the report, the doors were always locked. As the deputy looked around the scene she noted there were no signs of broken glass, and there were no signs of any evidence. A short time later OCSO dispatch contacted the deputy and noti ed her the Hyundai had been involved in a crash on N.E. Ninth Street near the city industrial park. The crash w as being worked by the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD) but no one was w ith the vehicle, added the deputy's report. OCSO Detective Mark Shireman, who has been assigned this case, said the car sustained some damage in the crash. But what intrigued him was the area around the car's gear shift was damaged as if someone had pried it to move the shifter. Deputy Sera ni also noted someone had ri ed through the car's glove box and scattered its contents around the front passenger seat area. The tow truck driver told the deputy he opened the glove box and looked in it but found no spare ignition key, added the report. If you have any information about this case, you are asked to contact Detective Shireman at 863-763-3117. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 REHAB THERAPY/ NURSING HOME We Love to We Love to Care!

The tram is scheduled to run at 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. A 2:30 p.m. tram will be o ered immediately following the 1 p.m. tour on these days, if required to meet visitor demand. During the busy winter season, a third tram may be o ered at 11 a.m. Weekend trams will be o ered at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets for the tram tour may be purchased at the Ranger Station and are sold only on the day of the tour. Tickets are $5 per adult and $3 for children ages 6-12. Children aged 5 and younger ride free. Park entry fees of $6 per vehicle (up to 8 people), $4 for one adult or an adult with children under six years, and $2 for visitors on bicycles or foot remain in e ect. During the extremely busy snowbird season from January through the end of March, visitors are advised to purchase tickets early in the morning to ensure seats, as trams tend to sell out quickly. The Ranger Station opens for business at 8 a.m. Special trams may also be booked in advance for larger groups or organizations at a cost of $74.90 tax included. Reservations and payment are made through the Ranger Station.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News  The OHS wrestling team placed fth at the Sebastian River Shark Invitational this past weekend. Cody Grif th and Eric Gaitan both were unbeaten, winning ve matches apiece. Tiffany Bowers won three matches and Joe Turbush also won three matches for Okeechobee. Okeechobee defeated South Fork 48-27, fell to the host Sebastian 45-30, lost to Rockledge 48-26, defeated Treasure Coast 63-24 and defeated Melbourne 39-36. Bowers won one of her matches with a pin in 24 seconds. The junior varsity Brahmans competed at the Kissimmee Osceola Classic. Daniel Robles 145 pounds, Kain Sarros 160 pounds, and Mikel Sadler, heavyweight won rst place in their respective divisions. Chris Lutjen took second place at 126 pounds, William Zapata second place at 145, Disan Hernandez at 182 pounds and Devon Herron second at 160 pounds. Ronald Knowles nished in third place at 138 pounds. Michael Hawthorne at 113 pounds, Elmer Ponce at 132, Jenn a Kemp at 106 and Matt Riley at 138, too k home fourth place nishes.  The Lady Brahmans basketball team fell to John Carroll 50-31 Tuesda y night in Fort Pierce. Bethany Stuart and Hailey Greeson led Okeechobee with 11 points apiece. Taylor Trent added eight points. Hunter Sullivan had 17 points, six assists and 11 rebounds for the Lady Rams, (4-7). Jaeden Brown had 13 points and 14 rebounds for John Carroll. John Carroll jumped out to a 14-point halftime lead, 25-11. Lady Brahmans coach Morgan Ungerott said this was a tough loss for the team because they had beaten them earlier in the season when the team played well. The Lady Rams were able to pull down 50 rebounds in the game. Ungerott said John Carroll had some big girls inside and OHS had a tough time boxing them away from the glass. “I tried to stress to all ve of our girls to box out but we always left someone open underneath. We average a few blocked shots per game but I would rather win the rebounding battle any day.” Ungerott said the team only had six players dress for this game due to injury. One player fouled out so the Lady Brahmans played short-handed with only four players on the oor at the end of the game. OHS got as close as seven points in the fourth quarter but couldn’t get any closer due to fatigue and the Lady Rams rebounding.  The OHS weightlifting team took second out of seven teams at the Port St. Lucie weightlifting meet. Fort Pierce Central won the contest with 57 points and Okeechobee earned 52. For OHS Justice Kent took third place at 101 pounds, Julia Weldon third at 110 pounds, Cristina Tinajero second place at 119 pounds, Jessica Mond rst place at 129 pounds, Mercedes Washington second place at 129 pounds, Hannah Collier third place at 154 pounds, Tamea Allen rst place at 169 pounds, Savannah Frady fourth place at 183 pounds, Jessica Drawdy champion at 199 pounds, and Elisia Garcia third place at unlimited weight.
