NASA leadership
gets blasted
CAPE CANAVERAL -
NASA skipped some shuttle
safety improvements as it tried
to meet unrealistic launch
dates for the first flight since
the Columbia tragedy, some
members of an oversight
panel said in a scathing cri-

Poor leadership also made
shuttle Discovery's return to
space more complicated,
expensive and prolonged than
it needed to be, the seven task

Keeping their cool: Heat dangers taken seriously

Heat wave doesn't stop Brahman


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
As the heat index hovered
between 104-108 degrees this
week, the Brahmans prepared
for battle in the various fall sports.
But, do not be mistaken. The
coaches and administrators are
taking the heat very seriously.
Cross-country coach Lacy
Osuldsen stood in the shade of
the auditorium with her runners
as they prepared to work out.
"We are focusing on weight
training and running shorter dis-
tances instead of the longer
runs," stated Osuldsen. "Right
now we are heading for the air-
conditioned weight room to
work on conditioning."
Omar Guerrero, returning
cross-country runner, soccer
player and kicker on the football
team stated, "The heat is intense,
but it's part of sports here in Flori-
da. Conditioning in this weather
will only help us get better."
Across the parking lot, all
three football teams (varsity, jun-
ior varsity and freshmen) went
through their paces with no ill
effects from the weather. There
was plenty of water available on
the practice fields and on the
floor of Brahman Stadium. Water
girls Elena Lara and Anna
Gilliland ran drinks to the varsity
players after each play.
The varsity and junior varsity
teams have been conditioning all
summer. Playing in the heat has

become second nature to them.
"We have had no problems
with the heat," stated head coach
Chris Branham. "The team is
focused on its game. They have
been practicing at game speed
and are looking forward to the


season. We've had no sign of any
heat fatigue whatsoever. None of
the team has even mentioned or
complained of the heat. They are
pumped up for the season and

arrests of those purchasing
drugs. The attack on drugs at the
street level will not stop", he said.
Sheriff May mentioned that
the sheriff's office has made
another one of its' missions tack-
ling the problem of underage
drinking and the illegal sale of
alcohol to minors. The sheriff
stated, "In one operation, the
sheriff's office deputies made
arrests from 10 local businesses,
for the alleged sale of alcohol to


minors.
Another topic on the agenda
was the operating budget for the
sheriff's department Sheriff May
noted that the new budget for
the coming fiscal year beginning
Oct. 1, has been tentatively
approved. It was made up of a

together a group of investors
and approached the State to buy
the land "east of the Peace River
south of and west of." The legis-
lature agreed on the condition
that the land be "DRAINED." The
deal was closed in 1881 and Mr.
Disston set about his work.
An account published in the
New York Times, on Feb. 18,
1881 reported that "within six
months (Disston's company)
was to put a force equal to 100
men on the work" the work in
part was "to drain the land by a
canal from Lake Okeechobee to
the Caloosahatchee River.
Another canal may also be con-
structed to the east, tapping the
St. Lucie River ... These canals
will entirely drain the swamp,
and from ten to 12 million acres
of the richest land in the world
will be reclaimed." That was the
thinking in 1881, 124 years ago.
A dredge boat was built in
Cedar Key, sailed down the coast
and up the Caloosahatchee
River where the dredging began,
connecting Lake Okeechobee to
the Gulf of Mexico.
The canals were dug like fin-
gers pointing south from the
Lake, the New River Canal, the
Miami Canal and the Industrial
Canal and the lake level fell. The
land was drained; by the
Caloosahatchee, St. Lucie, New
River, Miami and Industrial
Canals. It was, it has been for
over 100 years, and it is.

The sheriff talked to the group
about the population of prisoners
at the Okeechobee County Jail. He
told club members that the jail is
currently over populated with pris-
oners numbering 254. The total
capacity of the facility is 232. He
stated that since in office, he has
instituted the use of a 'booking fee'
when prisoners are booked at the
county jail. The booking fee of $15
is charged to each prisoner and it
was stated by the sheriff that over

The freshman Mavericks are
practicing on the field behind
Brahman Stadium. As they took
turns hammering the sled, head
coach Bob Hardman stated, "We
have not had any problems. We've
got water available to them at all
times. If someone doesn't feel
well, they know that they can sit
out until they feel better. But, so far
no one has gotten sick. They are a
motivated group. They are here to
play. They've only been in pads for
three days and I'm already seeing a
great deal of teamwork and effort
from everyone. I have an experi-
enced staff in Brian Perry, Hazell
Crenshaw and Tony Chapman.
We look forward to a great year for
the Mavericks."
Fall may mean colored leaves
and cooler temperatures else-

Brahman country it's just the
beginning of another high school
sports season.

The farmland around Lake
Okeechobee provides huge
crops of vegetables and fruit.

Disston was the first to experi-

During World War II, Florida's
long coastline was an easy target
for enemy ships. Before the War,
sugar cane workers harvested
Florida's sugar crop. The Federal
government wanted to assure a
steady supply of sugar. Sugar,

industrial alcohol, was also
needed to preserve food. Sugar

government.

prisoners at the jail will cost county
taxpayers over $5 million in the
next year. "Prisoners in the jail get
three things that some law abiding
citizens cannot afford. The first is
air conditioning, the second is
food, and the third is necessary
medications. When prisoners
come into the county jail, they will

But the mass exodus of peo-

rated Making High School Count

assembly-style presentation will
be delivered free of charge to stu-
dents and parents at 9 a.m. and

stand the importance of high
school and what they need to
accomplish to maximize their
opportunities upon graduation.
The program also addresses tran-
sitional issues such as time man-
agement and study skills.
"Entry into high school and
college are key transition periods
in a student's academic career,"
said J.R. Cifani, vice president of
Monster's Making It Count pro-
grams. "Our goal is to provide
and reinforce the positive mes-
sages and counselors and teach-
ers are giving to their students
during these crucial times and
help students understand that
anyone can be successful if they
choose to be."


OF,

Mavcicks

Count presentation program was
successfully presented to more
than 90,000 students nationwide

counselors rated the value of the
ideas presented a 9.5 on a ten-
point scale. This program, com-
bined with the success of the

er its message to more than .2.5

HERE ARE SOME PROBLEMS: Well, 1. Gas prices are out of control,
eh? It is time for the national government to roll back prices and con-
trol them again, with, allocation to stations, to prevent shortages in
supply. 2. That radical bozo, Cindy Sheenhan, needs to leave Craw-
ford, Texas now as well the loony "supporters" with her. I really
think the Vietnam War generation era protesters ought to quit their
cause. 3. Is the OBOE listening to the teachers in this blog? I hope so.

PARKING AT COURTHOUSE: The other day I had to go to the new
courthouse to take care of some business. A few days later I had to go
back two times. Every time I go there, the same cars are parked in the
spaces close to the building. Someone needs to tell these courthouse
employees to use that parking lot that we paid for. That's our tax dol-
lars at work and they all park on the street where the people visiting are
supposed to park. The only places that are free are almost a block
away. It is always the same cars. It's bad enough that I had to go there
anyway, but I shouldn't have had to walk a mile just because these
people are lazy.

SLOW DOWN FOR SCHOOL ZONES: School is back in session, so
be careful going through those school zones. In the mornings when
students are on their way to school, and in the afternoon when school
lets out, the speed limit in those school zones is 15 mph. The deputies
seem to be really watching the zone around Osceola Middle School.
So slow down and watch out for the kids.

Letter to the Editor


Thanks for making
life pleasant
I would like to thank Sheriff
Paul May, Willy Post, Captain Bud
Slay and the Okeechobee County
Road Patrol for making life much
more pleasant.
I think it is absolutely wonder-
ful that the new sheriff would per-
sonally take the time to come out
and assess the situation for him-
self. He and his people have done
a great job!
I would especially like to thank
Jack Williamson for bringing this
problem to their attention.
Jack I know you like to keep a
low profile, but I think something
needs to be said about all the peo-
ple you have helped, especially
me.
Every ones lives you touch you


bring a lot of joy and happiness,
and ask for nothing in return. Your
only reward is joy in helping oth-
ers.
You gave me hope when I
thought there wasn't any.
You encouraged me not to give
up and make a foolish mistake.
Your wisdom and strength
kept me from going in the wrong
direction.
Jack, you carried me through
some really rough times and for
that I will be eternally grateful.
Okeechobee County is very
fortunate to have a dedicated
public servant of your character
to serve them.
I feel very lucky and proud to
call you my friend.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.
