okeechobee realty: Okeechobee's 1st Jail Demolished - 04/03/09 11:45 PM
Okeechobee County's first jail built in the early 1900's located at 300 N.W. 2nd Ave., Okeechobee Florida could not be saved.  Due to structural issues, this historic land mark began its demolition this week.  As I drove past yesterday, my heart sank as I witnessed the "old jail" coming down.  I could only think of the stories or better yet the books that could have been written from all the events this tiny jail witnessed.  Thoughts of cattle rustlers, cheating gamblers, bank robbers and other Clint Eastwood and John Wayne movies flashed through my mind.  The contractors have saved most of … (1 comments)

okeechobee realty: Switching from Bellsouth.net and Outlook to Gmail - 02/10/09 11:42 PM
 With several email accounts and numerous offices, my outlook program seemed to be overloaded.  When we switched phone companies at home I realized my bell south.net account would be lost forever.  I wanted to choose a company who would be around for a long time and not have to switch in the near future.   After several hours of looking at several companies, I picked GMail.com.  What a great decision!  Gmail has exceeded my expectations, it is so user friendly with all of it's applications. 
I hope this helps, it sure has made my mind less foggy.

okeechobee realty: Fay left us with Flooded Pastures and 13 inches of rain! - 08/20/08 03:59 AM
Sleepy Tropical Fay slowly passed through Okeechobee County through the night leaving the county saturated.  There has been confirmed reports of 13 inches of rain is some areas of the county.  To add salt in the wound, Fay slowed down and became stronger as she waltzed past us and on to the coast.  Several residents remain with out power.  One local rancher is checking out his property by air boat.  Best of luck to everyone in Fays path.
