SFWMD's Missie Barletto said
that algal blooms are common in
the lake and in other bodies of
water throughout the state this
time of year. Their growth is trig-
gered by the presence of nutrients
such as phosphorus, and higher
temperatures.
Often when large algal blooms
die, they take oxygen out of the
water that can cause a fish kill. Mrs.
Barletto is not aware of any recent
fish kills.

their first touchdown for new

who assumed control of the

MOORE HAVEN The Glades
County Sheriff's Office (GCSO),
along with the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT), will be
conducting safety checkpoints
throughout Glades County on
Sept. 7.
* The checkpoints are being held
in response to numerous com-

County with uncovered loads and
unsafe equipment.
Glades County Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon asks motorists to please
slow down anytime they see a law
enforcement officer conducting a
traffic stop. The sheriff also said his

could be attributed to runoff from
local rainfall.
Mrs. Barletto said that the four
hurricanes last year churned up
sediment from the bottom of the
lake and resulted in turbid water
conditions and elevated phospho-
rous levels. In addition to providing
additional nutrients for the growth


of algae, that action has actually
controlled algal blooms. Algal
blooms are now confined to the
surface. If the water had more clari-
ty, the algal blooms would be deep-
er.
Mr. Fox thinks that since the
OUA water intake is beneath the
surface of the lake, and the algae is
on the surface, there is not as much
chance of it getting into the water
supply.
The blooms in area waterways
are caused by blue green algae


called Mycrocystis, according to the
SFWMD This algae is not always
toxic but can produce toxic strains.
However, the information on risks
by to humans and wildlife is very
limited.
The SFWMD media advisory
went on to say that agency is work-
ing with health department med-
ical experts to provide information
regarding known human health
risks associated with varying levels
of toxic blue green algae.

Geared up
The Brahman football teams are geared up and ready to go into battle for the 2005 grid-
iron season.


Local host families are needed


Foreign high school students
are scheduled to arrive soon for
academic semester and year pro-
gram home-stays, and the spon-
soring organization needs a few
more local host families.
According to Pacific Intercul-
tural Exchange (P.I.E.) Executive
Director, John Doty, the students
are all between the ages of 15 and
18 years, are English-speaking,
have their own spending money,
carry accident and health insur-
ance, and are anxious to share
their cultural experiences with
their new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs, rang-
ing in length from a semester to a
full academic year, where the stu-
dents attend local high schools.
P.I.E. area representatives
match students with host families
by finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal in-
home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review student
applications and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical"


host families, P.I.E. can fit a stu-
dent into just about any situation,
whether it is a single parent, a
childless couple, a retired couple
or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are
also eligible to claim a $50 per
month charitable contribution
deduction on their itemized tax
returns for each month they host
a sponsored student.
For the upcoming programs,
P.I.E. has students from Germany,
the Former Soviet Union,
Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil,
Macedonia, Hungary, Korea, Mex-
ico, Australia, Yugoslavia, China,
and many other countries. P.I.E. is
also participating in two special
government-funded programs to
bring scholarship students from
the Newly Independent States of
the former Soviet Union as well as
predominantly Islamic countries
such as Yemen, Syria, Jordan,
Morocco, Kuwait, Iraq and Qatar
to the United States. P.I.E. is a non-
profit educational organization
that has sponsored more than


25,000 students from 45 countries
since its founding in 1975. The
organization is designated by the
United States Department of State
and is listed by the Council on
Standards for International Edu-
cational Travel (CSIET), certifying
that the organization complies
with the standards set forth in
CSIET's Standards for Internation-
al Educational Travel Programs.
Doty encourages families to
contact the program immediately,
as it will allow the proper time for
the students and hosts to get to
know one another before they
actually meet for the first time.
Okeechobee area families
interested in learning more about
student exchange or arranging for
a meeting with a community rep-
resentative may call P.I.E., toll-
free, at 1(800)631-1818. The
agency also has travel/study pro-
gram opportunities available for
American high school students as
well as possibilities for communi-
ty volunteers to assist and work
with area host families, students
and schools.

A new beginning at New Endeavor HS


The students and staff of New
Endeavor High School are off to a'
fast start to the 2005-2006 school
year. We would like to thank all of
the parents and community mem-
bers for coming out and supporting
our Open House and for making
that event a success.
New Endeavor encompasses a
variety of programs designed to
meet the unique needs of a diverse
group of students. One such pro-
gram is the Alpha Program. This
program is putting Dr. Patricia
Cooper's "Achieving Excellence"
vision into practice on a daily basis.
The Alpha Program is an alternative
educational and counseling pro-
gram designed to serve fourth and
fifth grade students having difficul-
ties in the regular classroom setting.
This program evaluates environ-
mental factors which contribute to
academic difficulties experienced
by some students. The Alpha Pro-
gram is a joint cooperative preven-
tative program offered by the Okee-
chobee County School Board and
DATA (Drug Abuse Treatment
Association) and is funded by the
Florida Department of Children and
Families.
In Okeechobee County, the ele-
mentary school teachers and guid-
ance counselors make referrals for
student placement in the program
based on academic performance
and behaviors. These referrals are
then reviewed by a committee to
determine appropriate placement.
Out of all of the referrals for the pro-
gram, only thirty students are cho-
sen for Alpha. This program boasts
that it has a fifteen to one student to
teacher ratio. The fourth and fifth
grade classes provide one teacher,
one aide, and a counselor for the
classes. Each student enrolled in
the program then has an individual-
ized plan crafted for them, targeting
both academic and behavioral
goals. The classroom component
of the program lasts for one school
year, and then the students are
tracked the following year by an
"aftercare" program.
Anne Reiss, the Alpha Program
Supervisor, oversees the program


NEHS
from the site. Her energy brings out
the best in all of the students, and
she advocates the program motto,
"A new beginning." The smiling
faces the students see on a daily
basis are the two teachers within
the Alpha Program. Joy Prescott
teaches in the fourth grade class-
room. Ms. Prescott is out on mater-
nity leave, so Mr. Bob Helton is fill-
ing in admirably in the interim. Judy
Jones brings out the best in her stu-
dents in the fifth grade classroom,
and her former students remember
the lessons she teaches. Monika
Batton, Pat Murray, Denise Stratton,


and Donna Watson work closely
with our students providing assis-
tance in small groups and during
whole group instruction.
The principal, faculty, and staff
at New Endeavor High School wel-
come all students back to school.
We would like your feedback about
the Alpha Program, and all of the
exciting programs offered at New
Endeavor High School. Interested
parents and community members
are encouraged to come and visit or
volunteer. Please contact Anne
Reiss about the Alpha Program at
(863)462-5131. You may also con-
tact Andy Brewer, New Endeavor
High School Principal, with com-
ments, questions, and suggestions
at (863)462-5125.

HIGH PRICED WATER: I was in a restaurant when an elderly lady
came to the register and asked if she could have a cup of water. The
cashier said yes then charged this elderly lady $1.35. I told the lady that
there was a cooler down by the restrooms but she said no, that she
needed it now. I asked the clerk if she was really going to charge this
lady $1.35 for a cup of water and she said that she was only doing her
job and that is what they charge. In Florida you can go anywhere and
get a cup of water and it may cost .25 cents for the cup and you can
buy bottled water for anywhere from .35 cents to $1. I think this is
deplorable. This is just a small sample of what is happening in our
world today. It's no wonder gas prices are soaring if a cup of water
is $1.35 why not charge $3 a gallon for gas?


Letter to the Editor


Animal rights
The "animal rights" movemerit
has pulled off a deadly deception:
promote a vicious, anti-human pol-
icy, while feigning benevolent,
compassionate motives. The
deception takes the form of oppos-
ing life-saving medical research -
in the name of opposing cruelty to
animals.
Consider PETA's ongoing cam-
paign against Covance, a company
that conducts vital medical
research on animals to fight dis-
eases such as breast cancer, dia-
betes, and Alzheimer's. PETA is
staging an elaborate, heavily
backed PR effort claiming that Cov-
ance engages in gratuitous and
unnecessary torture of monkeys.
The centerpiece of the campaign is
a five-minute video allegedly prov-
ing PETA's accusations.
In fact, PETAs effort is a classic
smear campaign. Many of the
"abuses" it documents such as
the use of restraints or delivering
drugs through nasal tubes -- are
necessary to effectively administer
drugs to animals.
And the few examples of seem-
ingly inappropriate behavior they
find, such as the bizarre taunting of
monkeys by a few Covance
employees, are treated as pervasive
industry practice even though it
took a PETA'operative (operating
illegally within Covance) over 10
months to cull a mere handful of
such instances.
No sane person seeks to inflict
needless pain on animals. Such
practices, where they exist, should
be condemned. But anyone con-
cerned for human life must
unequivocally endorse the right-
ness of using animals in medical
research.
Animal research is absolutely
necessary for the development of
life-saving drugs, medical proce-
dures and biotech treatments.
Nobel Laureate Joseph Murray,
M.D. said: "Animal experimenta-
tion has been essential to the devel-
opment of all cardiac surgery, trans-
plantation surgery, joint
replacements and all vaccinations."
Explains former American Med-
ical Association president Daniel
Johnson, M.D.: "Animal research
-followed by human clinical study
- is absolutely necessary to find
the causes and cures for so many
deadly threats, from AIDS to can-
cer."
Millions of humans would suffer
and die unnecessarily if animal test-
ing were prohibited. But this is
exactly what PETA and other "ani-
mal rights" organization seek. They
believe that all animal research
should be banned, including
research conducted as humanely
as possible the declared and
scrupulously practiced policy of
most animal researchers.,
The founder of PETA, Ingrid
Newkirk, has declared unequivo-
cally that animal research is
"immoral even if it's essential" and


that "Even painless research is fas-
cism, supremacism."
When questioned what, her
movement's stance would be if ani-
mal tests produced a cure for AIDS,
Newkirk responded: "We'd be
against it."
Chris DeRose, founder of the
group Last Chance for Animals,
writes: "If the death of one rat cured
all diseases, it wouldn't make any
difference to me."
The goal of the "animal rights"
movement is not to stop sadistic
animal torturers; it is to sacrifice
human well-being for the sake of
animals. This goal is inherent in the
very notion of "animal rights."
According to PETA, the basic
principle of "animal rights" is: "ani-
mals are not ours to eat, wear,
experiment on or use for entertain-
ment" they "deserve considera-
tion of their own best interests
regardless of whether they are use-
ful to humans.".
This is in exact contradiction to
the requirements of human sur-
vival and progress, which demand
that we kill animals when they
endanger us, eat them when we
need food and run tests on them to
fight disease. To ascribe rights to
animals is to contradict the purpose
and justification of rights: the pro-
tection of human interests.
Rights are moral principles gov-
erning the interactions of rational
and productive beings that prosper
not in a world of eat or be eaten,
but a w9rld of voluntary, mutually
beneficial cooperation and trade.
The death and destruction that
would result from any serious
attempt to pretend that animals
have rights would be catastrophic
for humans a prospect the
movement's most consistent mem-
bers embrace. Newkirk calls
human beings "the biggest blight
on the face of the earth."
Freeman Wicklund of Compas-
sionate Action for Animals
declares: "We need a drastic.
decrease in human population if
we ever hope to create a just and
equitable world for animals."
The central issue in the "animal
rights" debate is not whether it is
acceptable to torture animals, but
whether it is proper to use them for
human benefit. The "animal rights"
movement's emphasis on the
senseless torture of animals in
the rare cases where it actually
exists is a red herring. It is a way
of promoting opposition to life-sav-
ing animal research companies,
and sympathy for themselves so as
to further their evil agenda of subju-
gating human beings to animals,
They must not be allowed to get
away with such dishonesty. What is
needed is a principled, intellectual
defense of the absolute right of ani-
mal experimentation, against the
deadly notion of"animal rights."

Looking Back...
The Louisiana Raulerson Hospital, located on N.W.
Second Ave., was opened in 1949 and the small hos-
pital served the community until 1961 when the Okee-
chobee General Hospital was built on N.W. Fifth Ave.
Today, the building that was Okeechobee's first hospi-
tal continues to serve the community as the Okee-
chobee Rehabilitation Facility. It has been expanded
over the years, and provides training and skills for the
handicapped. This photo also appears in the 1993
book tilted "Strolling Down Country Roads" by Twila
Valentine and Betty Chandler Williamson. Plans are
currently under way by the Okeechobee Historical
Society to reprint the book "Strolling Down Country
Roads". Recent interest in buying a copy of the book
has been increasing, and the Historical Society needs
an estimate of the number of books to order. The
expected cost is $35 to $40 per copy, and the society
hopes to have the books available by Christmas. If you
are interested in buying a copy of the book send your
name, address and telephone number to: Betty C.
Williamson, P.O. Box 249, Okeechobee, Fla., 34973.
This will not obligate you to buy the book, but you will
be notified when the books are available. You are
asked to send your information to Mrs. Williamson
soon. 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 okee-
news@okeechobee.com.

Brahmans blow out Moore Haven 41-0


By Mark Young.
Special to the Okeechobee News
MOORE HAVEN It took all
of :11 seconds for the Okee-
chobee Brahmans to score their
first touchdown for new head
coach Chris Branham, who
assumed control of the Brahman
gridiron squad following the ami-
cable summer departure of Todd
Dresser.
Moore Haven won the coin
toss Thursday evening but opted
to defer to Okeechobee, who
gladly took the football and joyful-
ly sprinted 78 yards for the score.
Okeechobee's Rashad Kelly
hauled in the opening kick at the
22-yard line, ducked and dodged
through a sea of black jerseys,
and was untouchable after find-
ing enough daylight to make it a
sprint to the goal line.
Moore Haven's Nathaniel
Sanders blocked the point after
attempt, but the Brahmans
jumped out to a 6-0 lead. with
11:49 left in the first quarter.
Sophomore Jerrell Smith
almost returned the favor after a
25-yard kick off return set up the
Terriers on Okeechobee's 35-yard
line, but the Brahman defense set
the early tone and stifled the Terri-
ers up front. Moore Haven
attempted to convert on a fourth-
and-four play, but came up 2
yards short.
Coach Branham expressed
excitement over his defense prior
to the start of the game.
"Overall, this football team is
the best team we've fielded in a
long time," he said. "But this
defense is exciting to watch.
Tonight will be the test to see if
they can transcend what they do
in practice to the game."
Transcend they did, as Okee-
chobee's defensive front wreaked
havoc on the Terrier offensive line
all night. Moore Haven quarter-
back Rod Huggins, a legitimate
Division I recruit potential, spent
the entire game surrounded by
purple and white jerseys literally
from the snap of the ball.
The Brahman defense quickly
turned the ball over to their
offense who marched 73 yards on
a 3:12 drive, highlighted by a 59-
yard run from Kenny Spencer


Special to the Okeechobee News/Mark Young
Co-captains Josh Raulerson, Rex Erwin and Travis Conrad head out to meet with their
Moore Haven counterparts for a coin toss that would be much more important than they
anticipated. The Brahmans eventually took the opening kick off 78 yards for a touchdown.


who eventually capped the drive
with a 3-yard plunge.
Moore Haven's Jyles Langdale
blocked the kick, but the Brah-
mans opened up a 12-0 lead with
6:20 left in the first.
Moore Haven put together
their best drive of the day in
response with Smith and Barrett
Ringstaff providing much of the
work out of the backfield. After a
short kick, the Terriers marched
from their own 40-yard line all the
way to the Brahman 24. Moore
Haven's Huggins dropped back
for his first pass attempt of the
game and found Brahman line-
backer Codey Storey, who subse-
quently took the interception 65
yards in the other direction. A
holding penalty after the pick,
brought the ball back to the Terri-
er 49-yard line and after driving to
the Terrier 10, returned the favor
with a fumble.
Moore Haven's Nathaniel
Sanders fell on the loose ball on
his own 10-yard line and a relent-
less Brahman defense drove the
Terriers back to their own one,
where they were forced to punt.
Okeechobee resumed offen-
sive operations on the Moore
Haven 34-yard line and after two
long runs from Spencer and Kelly,


Timmy Williams capped the
short drive with a 3-yard run.
The two-point conversion
pass attempt was ruled incom-
plete, but Okeechobee took an
18-0 lead with 4:55 left in the first.
Moore Haven put the ball on the
ground on their next possession
and Jarael Gilmore recovered for
Okeechobee.
Conrad took over the quarter-
back position for the Brahmans
and on his first pass attempt, con-
nected with La'lke McNeil on a
24-yard TD strike. McNeil caught
the 15-yard pass and bulldozed
his way through Terrier defenders
for the remaining nine yards.
Storey plunged through the mid-
dle for the conversion and Okee-
chobee went up 26-0 at the half.
The Brahmans duplicated
their efforts in the second half, fol-
lowing the exchange of
turnovers. Okeechobee's Rafe
Erwin recovered a fumble on
Moore .Haven's opening second
half drive, but Moore Haven's
Ringstaff picked off a Conrad
pass.
Moore Haven drove to Okee-
chobee's 18-yard line where they
were halted on a fourth and short
conversion attempt by a stubborn
Brahman defense. The Brahmans


drove 82 yards, highlighted by a
64-yard gain from Spencer and
capped by LeShawn Henderson's
5-yard score. Henderson scored
the two-point conversion and the
-Brahmans went up 34-0 with 4:11
left to play in the third.
The Brahmans rounded out
their scoring when Storey broke
free for 53 yards of open real
estate and Okeechobee secured a
41-0 victory.
"I bragged and bragged on our
defense. Thanks for not making
me a liar," said Branham.
Coach Branham said this
year's Brahman squad is much
more than the usual pre-season
hype that typically comes with the
beginning of a new season.
"I hope people know that this
isn't the usual hype," he said.
"Yeah, we played a smaller divi-
sion school tonight, but we did
what we were supposed to do.
It's huge to our morale and I hope
our hometown is ready for some
serious football."
The Brahmans will certainly
be looking for support as they
play host to South Fork in their
home opener Aug. 26. The Bull-
dogs defeated the Brahmans 35-
14 in the season finale last year.

down considerably.

Reflections



from the Pulpit


By Rev. James R. Dawson, Jr.,
assistant pastor,
First United Methodist Church
"Jesus said to him, 'You shall
love the Lord your God with all
your heart, with all your soul,
and with all your mind'."
(Matthew 22: 37, NKJV)
Okeechobee, Florida is a
great place to live. Its' people
reflect a down-home kind of
hospitality that would best
describe its character as charm-
ing and laid back. It is a simple
life that is as wholesome as it is
peaceful. Okeechobee is a great
place to raise a family and retire
too.
One thing that puzzles me is I
wonder why Okeechobee-isn't
more God-fearing. When I came
here about six and a half years
ago, I attended a ministerial
meeting where I heard that
Okeechobee was about to break
forth in a countywide revival. Six
and a half years later, I really
don't believe we are close.
Sometimes good wholesome
people can become complacent
in their everyday life and God
and church may seem like a
release to this kind of compla-
cency. The belief that, "I go to
church to do my duty as a good
Christian" may be how some of
us feel about church. Some
churches may offer what is
called "show time services."
This is where you go to a church
service and jump, shake, and
shout. This makes one sweaty,
tired, and hoarse but yet they
claim this is the right way to
have a moment of experience
with God. In other churches, the
liturgy is so rigid that a nap is
required afterwards (sometimes
during service). Church is not
meant to be so pointless.
One style of service is no bet-
ter than any other style of serv-
ice because in all churches you
still have the same problems:
alcoholism, drug usage, divorce,
sexual sins, unruly children, self-
righteous members, power
struggles, and so forth. So to say
one,.service style is better than
another, is immaterial with God
because all churches struggle
with the same problems. And
since we do, who is to say that
one style of worship is more
pleasing to God? No church or
church service is perfect in its,
way to worship God, but we as
individuals can be perfect if we
would worship Him with just
our heart.
Church is. to be a heart-felt
worship of God. It. isn't sup-
posed to make you tired or
sleepy. It is meant to give God all
praise, all glory, and all honor
that He deserves because He is
the one true God of heaven and
earth, the maker and creator of
everything. He is the very God
who loved us so much that He
gave His only Son, Jesus, to die
for out sins because He could
not bear 1for any of us to spend
eternity in hell. He is the God
who decided for you your gen-
der, race, color of hair, parents,
and who your children were
going to be. He is the Almighty,
all knowing God who knows the
days of your life and how they
were meant to be lived.
He is our everything. This is
the reason why, we should be
going to church. Worshipping
God is not about what we
should get out of church. It's
about loving God back for who
He is and all He has done for
each and every one of us, with-
out expecting anything in
return. Our mind set should not
be "God I will worship you if. .."
or "God, I am going to church so
I expect you to do a few things
for me" These people miss the
point about why we worship
God. It is not about getting
something out of the fact that
you came to church on Sunday.
It is about .your heart under-
standing its helplessness with-
out God and in complete devot-
ed love to Him we are saying,
"thank you Heavenly Father,
thank you Jesus, thank you Holy
Spirit because without you I am
nothing."
We should know that on Sun-
day morning as we are suppos-
edly worshipping the King of
Kings, the Lord of Lord, the
Alpha and Omega, and the great
Lion of Judah that God is look-


ing at our hearts and knows
who the pretenders and con-
tenders of His faith are. You can
not get legalistic in your attitude.
of .worship with God because
He knows the motivation of
your heart. Worshipping 'God
requires your everything, 24/7,
because God has given you His
everything. What more can He


do for you that He hasn't already
done?
Now examine yourself. What
have you not given to God that
you have been carrying around
for years? What is the one thing
or things that have been keeping
our heart from truly worship-
ping God because you think you
can not live without it? It may be
something has burdened you in
believing that God would under-
stand because, "I am so sorry."
Let me tell you, God may under-
stand your pain but He will not
approve of your behavior. It is
time to confess it and repent
from it. Turn it over to God and
let Him give you a heart for wor-
ship and. everyday living. You
have been a Christian too long
to live without a heart made by
God, given to you by God, for
the purpose of worshiping and
living for Him who has made
you and saved you from eternal
hell.
If you have not believed in
and confessed that Jesus is your
Lord and Savior, please take the
time to do so. If you need help to
do so or want to talk about your
.need for God in your present day
life, please call me at the
Methodist Church. I would be
happy to talk with you. If you are
in need of a church so that you
can start a heart-felt worship of
God with others who are there
for the same reason, then check
out one of Okeechobee's local
churches on a Sunday morning.
If not, then come and visit me at
one of of our three services on
Sunday morning, I will save a
seat for you. As the song says, "I
am coming back to the heart of
worship and it is all about you, it
is all about you, Jesus."
