FORT PIERCE Johnny Ray Graham is back on the streets. Charges that Graham stabbed and robbed a man in Fort Pierce were dropped Thursday after the victim refused to cooperate. Graham, 35, who had eight previous convictions, was arrested on Oct. 28, less than a week after Circuit Judge Ben "Buck" Bryan released Graham from jail and predicted that he would be rearrested. On Oct. 22, Bryan threw out Graham's drug conviction because he doubted the credibility of two police officers who arrested him. FORT PIERCE A St Lucie County grand jury indicted Kevin Bryant on charges of first-degree murder in connection with the slaying of Glendale King, a Fort Pierce mother of six who was killed by a random shot fired outside the Fort Pierce Elk's Club on Nov. 15. Bryant was also indicted on three counts of attempted murder for the other people who were injured in the shooting that night. Police arrested Bryant, 19, of Fort Pierce, Nov. 18.

NORTON MUSEUM OF ART 35,000 FORT PIERCE St Lucie County officials approved the state Department of Transportation's five-year spending plan for road improvements Thursday after voicing a few objections. County commission Chairman Gary Charles questioned the plan to widen U.S. 1 near the Indian River County line before more-heavily traveled segments from Rio Mar Drive to Edwards Road between Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce. The section from Rio Mar north is bumper to bumper," Charles said. DOT official Joe Yesbeck said the agency is having problems getting right of way in the Port St. Lucie area, but should be able to widen the portion in northern St. Lucie County soon. County Commissioner John Bruhn raised the possibility of shifting state money to other projects for widening South 25th Street, a project in limbo since voters rejected the proposed sales tax increase. Yes-beck said using federal money for that project would require more environmental studies and other work that could take two years instead of the county widening it immediately with local money. PORT ST. LUCIE Eighty-one residents of the Villas of Village Green are appealing the city's 47 percent hike in storm-water utility fees. Residents notified the city of the appeal this week, which will be heard by the city council once residents supply their property tax numbers. The council increased the annual drainage fee on homes from $69.48 to $102.10 in September. STUART Martin County's Development Review Committee did not approve final plans for the South County Boat Ramp Park on Thursday, but planners expect approval at the DRC's next meeting Dec. 18. The latest plans were turned in Tuesday, which didn't leave time to get all details of the changes, said planner Steve Lachnict. One change moves an access road so it no longer cuts a wetland in two. Final approval by county commissioners is expected at their Jan. 13 meeting.

Today, they plan to hand out fliers during the Soropti-mist International annual Christmas parade in downtown Stuart. On Monday, they'll demonstrate between 4 and 6 p.m. on the south side of the Roosevelt Bridge. Teachers are protesting the district's decision to halt union talks Nov. 24. The school district offered teachers a 3.5 percent raise, on top of a 2 percent increase teachers received in January. The teachers are asking for a total increase of 5.9 percent, or about $80,000 more. Administrators are also asking teachers to consider working an additional 75 minutes a week. 50 Off Monthly Access Convenience Security Thoughtful Gift mp-styie mini "smart" . cellular ($339.99 value.)

Any button answer STUART Four child-pornography charges were filed Thursday against former American Bank President Jimmy Myers Brown, in connection with computer images of girls and adult men in sexual situations recovered in a search at his Internet service offices Wednesday night, Martin sheriffs officials said. Brown, 57, of 2256 N.W. Fork Road, was arrested Monday on a charge of sexual battery on a child after a woman who is now 18 reported she was molested by Brown from age 6 until she turned 11 in 1991. Martin sheriffs investigators are still searching through files and interviewing other women identified as possible victims. Sheriffs officials said the children and men in the four images do not appear to be local. Brown is being held at the Martin County Jail in lieu of bail totaling $900,000. Brown was president of American Bank until 1995 and now operates Treasure Coast On Line. STUART Martin County High School student Seth Michael Rients, 17, of 2355 N.E. Rustic Place was arrested Tuesday afternoon on charges he sold and possessed drugs on campus, according to sheriffs reports. He was charged as a juvenile. Another student told officials Rients was dealing drugs on campus, according to school resource Lt. Morgan Sprott. Rients was called to the dean's office and searched. Three plastic bags containing 10 individually wrapped foil packets were found, Sprott reported. The substance in the foil tested positive for LSD. Rients was booked at the Martin County Jail and released to his mother, according to reports. BOCA RATON The body of a man was found floating face down in the ocean Thursday morning just off the jetties at South Inlet Park at 1000 S. Ocean Blvd., Boca Raton police said. There were no immediately visible signs of trauma on the man, who was discovered by a fisherman standing on the jetty, police spokeswoman Lori Croy said. The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office said the man drowned, but the case is still under investigation.
