Furyk holds
off Woods
LEMONT, Ill. First, Jim
Furyk heard endless. questions
about his wrist.
Next, he was asked about
the state of his game and
where the form that won him
a major championship in 2003
went. He also heard about
that victory drought, especial-
ly after his collapse last week-
end.
He has an answer for
everyone now. An emphatic
one at that.

4 OPINION


Speak Out

Exercise your right to free speech. Speak out is a free 24-
hour opinion line. Call and express your opinion or ask ques-
tion about public issues. You are not required to leave your
name. While we want you to speak out freely, the newspaper
reserves the right to edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and
fairness. To speak out call (863)467-2033, fax (863)763-5901
or e-mail: okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail sub-
missions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee,
Fla. 34973.
Teachers
"I completely agree with the comment about the school
board being in denial: they need to wake up and do what they
need to do in order to keep teachers."


Bush
"Bush should have made a speech to the injured veterans
who have been denied claims instead of going to Fort Bragg
and make a speech."


Turn Signals
"I heard that the fine for not using your blinkers is $75. I hope
it is statewide. If it is statewide, there are a lot of people in Okee-
chobee that are going to really, really be in trouble because peo-
ple in Okeechobee think it's against the law to turn their on their
blinkers. (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. The new law to
which you refer went into effect July I and is a state law. The new
law states that when a car is overtaking another vehicle or chang-
ing directions the driver is required to use the signals.)


Thanks Seminoles
"I am so proud that the Seminole Tribe has given Florida
State University permission to keep.the name Seminoles. They
are a proud tribe that didn't give up, and that is how I feel about
our FSU Seminoles too. Thanks Seminole Tribe."

Looking Back ...
W.E. Arnold, father of Harley Arnold, is shown with a load of oranges ready to be shipped to market. The wagon was
pulled by oxen to Fort Pierce, where the oranges were loaded on boats and shipped to the northern states. Later, boats
were docked at Taylor Creek where the citrus was loaded, and by 1915 the railroad had arrived and shipping to the north
of the perishable commodity was greatly speeded up. This photo was taken in 1905 and also appears in the 1993 book
"Strolling Down Country Roads" by Twila Valentine and Betty Chandler Williamson. Do you have any old photos of the
Okeechobee area or of Okeechobee citizens? If so, bring them by the Okeechobee News office, 107 S.W. 17th St., and
we can copy them while you wait. Or, you can e-mail the photo and information about the photo to okeenews@okee-
chobee.com.

Be cautious when around plants unfamiliar to you

A

Life

with Katrina Elsken


Spending more time out-
doors this summer, gardening,
hiking or camping? Be careful
when you are around unfamil-
iar plants.
If you grew up elsewhere,
you may only think you know
what poison ivy, poison oak and
poison sumac look like. The
plants vary in appearance from
region to region. The versions
found in south Florida may not
look the same as the versions of
the plants found where you
grew up.
Poison ivy can grow as a vine
or a shrub. The leaves may be
smooth or have notched edges
and are usually clustered in
groups of three.
Poison oak can be found as a
small bush or a climbing vine.
The leaves have smooth edges
and may be in clusters of three,
five or.seven.
Poison sumac is commonly
found in wet areas -- so it is
right at home in south Florida.

you should still be careful.
For most people, exposure
to poison ivy, poison oak or poi-
son sumac results in an itchy
rash that can be treated with
over the counter remedies such
* as Calamine lotion or hydrocor-
tisone creams.
For a few people, however,
the allergic reactions may be
severe and require medical
care.
The rash may be bumps or
groups of bumps that seem to
form lines. It is a myth that the
rash can spread if the bumps
break and the fluid inside leaks.
Actually, skin exposed to the
plant oils may develop bumps
over a period of days, so it looks
as if the rash is spreading.
The rash can, however;
spread by more exposure to the
plant oils. These oils may linger
on clothing, shoes, tools or any-
thing else that has touched the
plant. In some cases, pets may
have the plant oils on their fur


and transfer the oil to people
who pet the animals.
If you are exposed to poison
plants or their oils, wash with
soap and water as soon as pos-
sible. You can also remove the
plant oils with alcohol. The
faster you remove the oil from
your skin, the better your
chance at avoiding or limiting a
rash.
Some people develop severe
allergic reactions to these
plants. Contact a doctor if you
have trouble breathing or swal-
lowing, feel faint, if the rash
covers a large portion of your
body or if the rash appears to be
getting worse or becoming
infected.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on
any prescription medications.
Some drugs interact badly with
foods that would otherwise be
considered "healthy".


zen Information Center, gives peo-
ple a better understanding of new
Medicare services such as prescrip-
tion drug plans and preventive ben-
efits.
Beginning this year, Medicare
covers three new preventive bene-
fits: a Welcome to Medicare physi-
cal exam for people new to
Medicare, a cardiovascular screen-
ing, and a diabetes screening that
can help you find out your choles-
terol and blood sugar levels and
then make a plan to keep them in
check.

The leaves are oval-shaped and
smooth.
The oil on the leaves of these
"poison" plants can cause an
allergic reaction when it comes
in contact with skin. Exposure
to the plants can result in a rash
that usually develops within 24'
to 72 hours after exposure.
About half the population is
sensitive to these plant oils. For
many people, sensitivity can
develop over time, especially
with frequent exposure. So
even if you never had an allergic
reaction to poison ivy before,

pote with lots of others under the
Christmas tree. So here's a tip.
The smokers on your list will
make a beeline for your gift first
-the minute they see it's a gay
Christmas carton of Camel ciga-
rettes or a pound of Prince Albert
Smoking-Tobacco. These two pop-
ular products get a rousing wel-
come everytime. Mild, full-flav-
ored Camels are sure to please
cigarette smokers, and pipe lovers
have made Prince Albert Ameri-
ca's largest selling smoking tobac-
co. And you'll like those smart,
colorful Christmas wrappings,
Particularly when you spot that
handy "built-in" card for your
personal greetings. Camels and
Prince Albert are so easy to order.
