According to an arrest report by Detective Corporal Ted Van Deman, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), the woman was able to ee her home after her attacker fell asleep. Evi Serrano Mojica, 32, N.E. 64th Ave., Okeechobee, was arrested Saturday, June 14, by the detective on felony charges of armed burglary of a structure, sexual battery, false imprisonment and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was also arrested by OCSO Deputy William Jolly on a felony charge of burglary of a structure and a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana under 20 grams. Those charges stem from an incident at the victim’s home on Thursday, June 12, when Mojica was found taking items that belong to the woman’s boyfriend.

Hurricane season quiet? Okeechobee County Emergency Management director Mitch Smeykal warned commissioners about predictions and projections about hurricanes. There were 13 named storms last year but no major landfalls in the United States. Two spring rain events this year — one in the Panhandle that caused $62 million in damage — have caused havoc in the state. “They are already questioning whether these predictions are accurate?” Mr. Smeykal added. He warned Hurricane Andrew hit in 1992 when experts had predicted a quiet hurricane season. Between Report: Woman terrorized, raped County board takes on a varied agendaFatality probe continues ...

The board Tuesday, June 10, voted to continue a moratorium on all impact fees for schools. Superintendent of Schools Kenworthy said enrollment continues to decline and there is no need to construct new schools or add classrooms at this point. The board scheduled meetings for Tuesday, July 22, and Tuesday, July 29, to discuss the tentative millage rate and budget to be proposed next month. Both meetings will start at 6 p.m. The board also approved new performance pay plans for teachers that were approved by union members by a 109-27 vote. Revisions to teacher evaluations were also approved unanimously by the school board, and 111-25 by teachers.

He thanked his faculty and staff, spoke highly of his students and praised the parents over the years for their support. “I’m really going to miss all that. It seems like I just got to Okeechobee yesterday. I feel we’ve helped the children achieve excellence and I’m very proud of all the things we’ve accomplished at Central Elementary,” he said. Mr. Paulson said he always knew he could count on the parents for their support. His retirement plans include shing, skiing and relaxation. He will also spend time with his granddaughter and the rest of his family. He was treated to a party on campus last month as students put on a performance for him and several invited guests dropped by to honor him and his career.

It is a lovely face lift and it is great for Okeechobee. Aide accused of pulling hair How can parents teach their kids to behave at home when they don't know how to behave themselves? I, for one, have a child with ADHD and it is very hard. However, if a teacher's aide is having problems, then that person should be brought up and dealt with in a civil manner. I say if you are impatient to begin with then you probably shouldn't be around kids. The resource of cer said there was no criminal harm done, and I believe it also said she has never had prior complaints! That's the problem with our society. We judge without knowing all of the facts. Okeechobee is a great town and has some pretty awesome teachers and some pretty great parents. But then we also have the other side that is not so great. We have teachers who don't give a darn and parents who have taught their kids that they don't have to respect anyone. Need is great for band uniformsResearchers have long proven that the arts are a valuable part of a student's education. Okeechobee's middle schools are doing a great job making the world of music available to its students; this past school year, there were 385 students involved in the band programs at Yearling and Osceola combined! Because of the development of musicians in these feeder programs, the Okeechobee High School Marching Band has grown over the last two years from 88 marching members to 138 for this coming fall, and our program's successes are mounting. In the past few years, the OHS band has performed in the 2010 Governor's Inaugural Parade in Tallahassee, the 2011 National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C., and the 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013 Florida Marching Band Championships in St. Petersburg. In addition to these group achievements, many of our individual musicians have achieved high honors as well. In December, three OHS band members quali ed for and attended the Florida State University Tri-State Band Festival for the top musicians in the Florida, Georgia, and Alabama region. This spring, twenty-eight students represented OHS at the IRSC Four-County Honor Band, making OHS the most represented band in the fourcounty area. Numerous students participated in District Solo and Ensemble, with several qualifying for the state level as well. There is a problem with this growth and success, however. As we seek to put one of the largest and most talented bands in several years on the eld this fall, we run headlong into our greatest challenge: uniforms. Our current uniforms debuted in the fall of 2001. At 13 years old, thes e uniforms are well past their prime. The bigges t issue, however, is that we can no longer out t the entire band. This coming year, close to 40 students will not have a uniform and will hav e to wear costumes. The band's goal is to raise $60,000 to purchase new uniforms. In just one of many fundraising efforts, band students will be hosting a pancake breakfast at Applebee's Saturda y morning, June 21, from 8-10 am. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from any band membe r or at the door. In addition, each band studen t has been asked to raise $400 through a letterwriting campaign, and the Band Boosters o f Okeechobee County is seeking everything from one-time donations to corporate sponsorships. If you can help, please contact Band Booste r President Steve Dobbs at 863-634-0194 or stop by Applebee's Saturday morning! Thank you in advance for your support! Ou r band students can't do it without your help!

5 Okeechobee News June 18, 2014 entered the victim’s home and at some point he became enraged and started throwing knives at the victim, stated the report. When the woman tried to leave, he would allegedly grab her and throw her down. He even started throwing items from the refrigerator at her, added the report. The victim reportedly told Deputy Jolly that although he is small in stature (5-foot-3 and 125 pounds) Serrano, on the day of her attack, “... had the strength of three grown men.” To further terrorize the woman, Serrano picked up a container of charcoal lighter uid and started squirting the uid about the home and on the victim, stated the detective. He apparently tried to ignite the uid by tossing a candle on the oor, but that didn’t work. Cpl. Van Deman said at some point Serrano armed himself with an orange-handled knife and “cut down” the woman’s right leg. The wound was apparently not serious and the detective described it as a scratch. Still enraged, Serrano grabbed the woman and threw her on the couch and raped her, stated the detective. He later went into a bedroom and fell asleep. At that point, the woman ed the home on foot. She was picked up by a friend who took her to a nearby store so she could call for help. “It should be noted this attack reportedly started at noon and continued until the rape, which occurred after dark,” stated the detective’s report. When Cpl. Van Deman went to the home he said it was in total disarray. There were various items thrown about and food on the oor. He also found where the phone had been pulled out of the wall, as well as a candle and burnt paper on the living room oor. “Knives were found thrown about the house and in the sofa. An orange knife, like the one the victim described as being used to cut her, was found,” stated the detective. Cpl. Van Deman went on to conclude that Serrano has an unhealthy xation on the victim. “This, and a propensity for drug usage, has led to episodes of violent behavior that ended in the rape of the victim by Serrano,” the investigator stated. A check of Serrano’s background shows a number of felony arrests that include burglary, grand theft and possession of cocaine. In 2009, he was found guilty of burglary and two counts of grand theft. He was sentenced to 48 months in prison by then-Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Mirman. Department of Corrections (DOC) records show Serrano spent about 39 months in prison and was released from the DeSoto Annex Aug. 13, 2012. RAPEContinued From Page 1 her when they reportedly found she, too, w as in possession of pills. Howling, S.E. 66th Ave., was charged w ith the felonies of sale of a counterfeit substance for oxycodone, possession of a counterfeit substance for oxycodone with intent to sell, sale of a controlled substance (suboxone), possession of a controlled substance (suboxone) with intent to sell, sale of a controlled substance (oxycodone) and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (morphine). He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Howling is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail without bond. Also arrested Monday at Howling’s home w as Reba Lynn Bailey, 24, N.E. 18th Terrace, in Okeechobee. She was charged with the felonies of possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone) and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription (suboxone). She was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Bailey is also being held without bond. Task force arrest reports indicate detectives went to Howling’s home Monday afternoon to arrest him for selling counterfeit prescription pills. When the detectives approached the home Howling and Bailey both came out of the home, stated the detectives. When Howling was searched, the detectives allegedly found: 12 oxycodone pills; three syringes; three suboxone tablets; and, $291 in cash. Bailey was then searched, and the detectives reportedly found: six suboxone tablets; two syringes; and, four bottle caps with a blue residue. The residue in the bottle caps was eld tested, and those tests indicated a positive result for the presence of opiates. According to the arrest reports Howling does not have prescriptions for oxycodone, morphine or suboxone. Bailey, continued those reports, does not have a script for oxycodone or suboxone. The detective’s arrest report stated Howling had just sold the suboxone pills to Bailey, and that he allegedly sells pills “... to support his own addiction.” Records show Howling was placed on 18 months probation following his Oct. 2, 2013, arrest for sale of a controlled substance (heroin), possession of a controlled substance (heroin) with intent to sell, two counts of sale of a controlled substance (oxycodone) and two counts of possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone). Howling was also arrested on Aug. 3, 2010, after a four-month-long investigation found he had received a total of 2,510 pills by seeing different doctors from August 2009 through the early part of January 2010. He allegedly saw 10 different doctors and used eight different pharmacies. He was charged with ve counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. Howling was found guilty on all ve counts and was sentenced to eight months in the county jail. Circuit Court Judge Sherwood Bauer ordered those sentences to run concurrently. This also was not Bailey’s rst run-in with the law. Records show she was arrested April 16, 2014, on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and a misdemeanor charge of possession o f drug paraphernalia. She is scheduled to be in Circuit Court for docket call on July 16 at 9 a.m. PILLSContinued From Page 1 Reba Lynn Bailey Jimmie Lee Howling eight and 13 named storms are predicted this year.

Hurricane season of cially began June 1 and ends Nov. 30. “Don’t go by long-term predictions because it can take only one major storm to do damage,” he noted. “I guarantee you, standing here today, that at one point in time Florida will be hit by a storm.” Mr. Smeykal said the Emergency Operation Center has been busy with numerous training sessions that involve re ghters, police and emergency managers. “It is not just hurricanes — we have tornadoes, heavy rain events — y ou never know what is going to happen. It’s good to have this facility. We train, we play and w e ght together,” he added.Fishing University coming to Big ‘O’The Fishing University show will lm in Okeechobee County thanks to the Tourist Development Council (TDC). Two pro anglers will join the TV crew and will sh on Lake Okeechobee. They will talk about the community and what it is all about. The TDC agreed to spend $6,000 to bring this project to Okeechobee. They will also hold a meet and greet with the local public to nd out more about the Outdoor Channel. They will also do a program at Okeechobee High School for about an hour to provide information on educational opportunities and jobs available in wildlife management, biology and other elds. The nished and edited show will feature OHS for 90 seconds. The show will air six times, and be 30 minutes in length. Filming will take place in October and November, and the show will air in early 2015. Commissioner Bryant Culpepper said this is a clean industry that will promote and bene t the entire community. There are two openings on the TDC board. Both positions are for owner-operators in the hotel or motel industry or others that collect the bed tax.Recreation center a possibilityCommissioners agreed to apply for a $500,000 grant with the Florida Division of Cultural Facilities Program to build a recreation center at the Sports Complex. The county could use other grants and money that has already been spent as the local match. It is a 50-50 match grant. The commission debated how much could be built for $1 million under current codes. Parks and Recreation director Albie Scroggins said the recreation center is needed if only to keep kids out of the weather during thunderstorms. They could also include the parks and recreation of ces in the building and remove the portable trailer currently being used. “It could be built in phases, with a core building to meet immediate needs and then extend the plan to an indoor basketball court or whatever facility upgrades are agreed upon,” he added. Mr. Scroggins said the sports complex lacks a community building that serves the needs of residents and staff and that should be a high priority. Commission chairman Frank Irby said he worries that grants can put the county in a place they don’t want to be. “This is a motion to spend up to $500,000. For that you won’t build much. You won’t build something for $500,000 that is useful other than a pole barn,” he said. Commissioner Culpepper mentioned a roller hockey facility, and said he would like to see recreational facilities in the building. He opined the county should get input from the public to decide what they would like to see in the building. A cultural center was one of the highest priorities of residents in a survey done a fe w years ago. It is part of a master plan for parks and recreation facilities. The county estimated it would cost $5 million or more to build a 30,000-squarefoot, climate-controlled building.

These awards were from the Treasure Coast Branch of the U.S. Green Building Council South Florida Chapter. Central students, teachers, and staff started working hard to make a difference on Nov. 15, America Recycle Day, when they pledged to recycle and celebrate Earth Day-Every Day. A paper drive was held from Nov. 15 to April 22. A total of 3,400 pounds of paper was collected. Central also collected a total of 1,500 juice pouches. The pouches were sent to Terracycle where they were redeemed to provide a meal to 60 American's facing hunger. The Recycling Rock Stars from Mrs. Jones' and Mrs. Fulleda's classes weighed all the paper and counted the number of juice pouches collected. They also encouraged the other students from Central to, "Go Green," by displaying recycling writings, creating bilingual recycling videos, and most importantly educating the students about the importance of recycling through a series of stations created by the students. This inspired other students to also want to be, "Recycling Rock Stars." Central's students truly believe that, "Small Hands Can Make a World o f Difference."

See Puzzle on page 15 By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Kysell Richardson won the Most Valuable Player Award and Garrett Causey took home the Yearling Award for Academics and Character at the Yearling Middle School Athletic banquet held Tuesday at the school cafeteria. Richardson was praised for his oor leadership and his play at the point guard position this year by coach Mike Wharin. He honored eight players who will move on to play high school ball next year. "Each year brings a new end. These guys w ere incredible and I'll miss them but I know they will do well. They are set up for success because of their attitudes, the way they approach the game and the way they study their academics," he explained. Richardson said the MVP trophy was very important to him because he tried to help all the players to learn their role on the team, "It shows all the hard work I put in paid off and I feel good about it. Coach could have chosen anyone else, but he chose me, and I think I did pretty well." His father Marcel Richardson was an assistant coach for the team this year. Wharin said his assistant deserved a lot of credit because he is a tireless worker and w ants the best for the players, "He does an awesome job and is a big part of this program." Futch, who lost most of the season to torn ligaments in his ankle, still did enough to be named the Offensive Most Valuable Player. When he was on the court, the Bulls w ere a different team. His speed was always a weapon and he hopes that will translate to a strong high school career in both basketball and football. Causey said it felt great to take home the Y earling Award. He called it a great award and that it was an honor to get it, "I think I showed good sportsmanship and I always tried to bring the spirits of my team up. I appreciate the coaches for giving me a chance to play this year." Causey said he hopes to improve his game in high school, get tallerhe is already 6 feet talland move on and play college ball. Lamar Williams took home the defensive player of the year award for the second consecutive year. He is expected to be a top football prospect in Florida in years to come but is also an accomplished basketball player. He led the team in rebounds and points and always give maximum effort. Other eighth graders honored included Elton Pelt, George Marshall and Malcolm Chambers. Returning players honored included Devonte Luellman, Zachary Wharin, Bracen Harvey, Jalen Pryor, Jose Rodriguez and Robert Futch. Wharin said he expects 2014-15 to be a rebuilding year for the Yearling basketball program with just ve returning players on the roster. Wharin will spend the summer grooming some younger players with an under-15 AAU travel ball team. He said the team recently won their age group at the Anquan Boldin tournament held in Pahokee and he is excited about those players. The team will play several tournaments which include one in late May. They play in large venues like West Palm Beach and Orlando. Yearling went 6-6 for the season. Williams had a team leading 18 blocks, and averaged 12 rebounds a game and 12.5 points per game. Richardson averaged 11 points a game and 6.2 assists per game. Garrett Causey was the sixth man this year and rst off the bench. He rotated with George Marshall and was able to score an average of 4.5 points per game.
