Helpful hints in
removing stumps
After last year's storms
many landscapes have lost
trees, and their stumps remain
as eyesores, termite factories
and bumps that are bother-
some to mowers. Today's col-
umn comes to us from former
UF Extension Specialist Bob
Black who has some sugges-
tions on how they may be
removed with the least
amount of effort and expense.

Bull Dogs, 35-22
The Okeechobee Brahmans
opened the 2005 gridiron sea-
son Saturday evening in front of
a large enthusiastic home
crowd with a 35-22 win over
the South Fork Bull Dogs.
The season opening game
postponed from Friday night
due to possible inclement
weather conditions held a
series of firsts for the Brah-
mans. This was the first game
of the official high school foot-
ball season (last week's win
over Moore Haven 41-0 was a
pre-season game); the first win
of the season; the first game of
the year at Brahman Stadium;
and the first season game for
the Brahmans' new coaching
staff led by head coach Chris
Branham.
The Brahmans put the first
score of the game onto the
board with 48 seconds remain-
ing in the first quarter with a
touchdown by senior Rashad
Kelly. The point after was
blocked by the Bull Dogs put-
ting the Brahmans out in front
6-0 at the end of the quarter.
At 8:40 in the second quar-
ter the Brahmans again threat-
ened when a long pass from
Virgil Barrett to Timmy
Williams put the Brahmans
inside the Bull Dog 10-yard line.
The South Fork defense dug in
and took the ball back with
6:43 remaining.
With 10 seconds left in the
quarter, the Bull Dogs attempt-
ed field goal was no good as it
sailed across the end zone wide
to the right.
The Brahmans returned to
the field at the beginning of the
third quarter still in the lead 6-0.

Hospice of Okeechobee offers supportive services. Lisa Blackman (left), director, said
the agency provides separate caregiver and bereavement support groups. Judy Curtis
(second from left) attends caregiver support group sessions on Thursdays from 2 until
4 p.m. Her mother, age 91, is not a hospice patient but does have medical problems.
Dick Blair (third from left), 91, lost his wife two and half years ago and attends bereave-
ment support sessions from 10 until 11 a.m. on Tuesdays. Enid Boutrie (right) is a social
worker at Hospice of Okeechobee and provides counseling services during both sup-
port sessions.

Agencies give caregivers support


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
There comes a time in most
people's lives when they will care
for a loved one, whether that loved
one has a life-limiting illness or is
healthy and aging, for just a,few
weeks or over several years. When
one becomes a caregiver, he or she
most likely needs some time off to
run errands or just take a break-a
respite from the daily routine. A
look around Okeechobee revealed
several resources of respite for
caregivers.
Linda Creech, R.N.C, director of
Big Lake Hospice, said employees
and volunteers in her agency pro-
vide respite care for family mem-
bers of their patients. She said her
agency has seen a tremendous
growth in services, so much that
they will need to move to a larger
facility.
"We have three to four times
the amount of patients than when
we opened here one and a half
years ago. We started with two
employees and now have eight,"
she said. They are moving out of
their 1,000 square foot office on
Northwest Fifth Street to a newer

Linda Cr.eech, R.N.C., director of Big Lake Hospice-
Okeechobee, said she and her staff provide phone serv-
ice 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Employees and
volunteers supply respite care, giving caregivers a
chance to go to appointments and take care of person-
al matters.


Awards banquet honors Gilliland


Joe Gilliland was honored
with the Okeechobee Friend of
4-H Award, at the 2004-2005 4-H
Awards Banquet on Saturday,
Aug. 27 in the Okeechobee High
School Cafeteria.
"Over the last 15 years, the
Okeechobee 4-H Foundation
has attempted to honor persons
of organizations who have ren-
dered exemplary service to the
4-H program," said Debbie
Clements of the Okeechobee
County Extension Office. "In the
past, honorees have been indi-
viduals, families and businesses
whom have gone above and
beyond to provide resources,
time and expertise.
"This year's honoree has cer-
tainly distinguished himself as
an invaluable contributor to the
/ program's success," she said.
"John has been a 4-H leader
for 14 years, but John is not just
a leader, he is a leader extraordi-
naire. John was a founding
leader of what is now the largest
4-H club with 95 members," she
said.


"As an Udder Bunch leader,
John has been Mr. Dependable.
His organizational and leader-
ship skills have been evident for
years as he assisted in the move-
ment of that huge active club
and their animals around the
state to various shows. John is
also a teacher. He has provided
the expertise in presentations at
clinics, meetings, demonstra-
tions, tours, judging practices
and retreats. When John does a
presentation, it is not just a lec-
ture either. You had better be
ready to dive in and get involved
and dirty, if need be. It's going to
be hands on, practical experi-
ence. John has assisted in
coaching, judging teams and
management teams. He has the
ability to make highly technical
subject matter useful and
understandable.
"John shares resources and
opportunities. He has made
judging teams welcome to the
run of the farm in their attempt
to find challenging practice
experience. He has provided a


home for many 4-H animals at
McArthur's. He has secured
many show heifers for mem-
bers, always seeing the quality
and affordability of the animal,"
Mrs. Clements continued.
"John is a 'cow doctor'
administered to innumerable
sick animals and breeding hun-
dreds of heifers as a youngster's
call. In short, John's wealth of
practical knowledge and his
unlimited willingness to share
that knowledge has benefited
literally hundreds of Okee-
chobee 4-H members over the
years.
"But John hasn't just done 4-
H, he has given of his time in
other areas needed to further 4-
H program. Realizing that the
total picture of the 4-H program
and how it fits into the commu-
nity is much larger than the pro-
gram itself, John has reached
out into the overall community.
John has been an active mem-

Ms.. Creech attributes the
growth in the number of hospice
patients to choices that agencies,
to be at least such as hers, afford to people. She
said, "Because of education and
people being more aware of the
choice of keeping their loved one
at sea at home, they are increasingly
keeping them at home."
What adds fuel to that choice is
the level of support people can
receive from agencies such as a
hospice and other agencies that
help caregivers with respite care.
Ms. Creech explained: "If we have
a caregiver that wants to keep the
patient at home, but physically
can't do it, we furnish most of the
care and can provide continuing
care. And some people hire some-
one else to help." Some choose the
inpatient house in Stuart. "We have
sent patients there for a short peri-
od of time," she said.
But being a caregiver of some-
o o one who is ill is not an easy task.
"They have no formal training,"
Ms. Creech said, "so we teach
them how to take care of their
loved one." She said they teach the
caregiver how to roll a patient over
in bed, help the patient get up, and
und raising so forth. Once shown, the caregiv-
elping with er usually catches bn really fast.

)gram. Two They put their loved one's needs
e with Anna before their own. It is amazing to
pe to UF me," Mrs. Creech said.
e justifiably Hospice of Okeechobee offers
nplishments weekly caregiver support groups at
omeday fol- no charge. The group is led by a
)s and come licensed social worker and is open
he program to those in need, regardless of
whether they have a loved one in
hospice care. "There is no length of
nore cover- time someone can attend the care-
ds banquet, giver support group," said Lisa
ons of the Blackman, director. "We believe
the patients do not get good care
unless we focus on the caregiver,"
she said.
To prove her point, Ms. Black-
man explained that they have had
situations when the caregiver over-
did it and got sick themselves while
caring for a loved one. "Then the
patient does not have a caregiver,
S so it is important for the caregiver
to tak re of him or herself," she
said.
"It is important that the caregiv-
er goes to someone for emotional
support, someone outside of the
family. We have a full contingency
of staff, including two full-time
social workers and two part-time
chaplains," she said. Additionally,
respite care is provided by 35 vol-
unteers so caregivers can go shop-
ping or run errands. Sometimes
the respite volunteer goes shop-
ping for the caregiver.
If the caregiver and family
members need to go out of state
for an emergency, the patient can
go to a nursing home at hospice's
expense, according, to Ms. Black-
man. "There is no inpatient hos-
pice in town," she explained. They
have hospice patients in the hospi-
tal and it can be used when respite
is needed. "We have a three-year
contract with Raulerson Hospital
for that," said Ms. Blackman.

legally blind, and has other medical
conditions. Ms. Curtis praised the
caregiver support group at Hospice
of Okeechobee. "I couldn't make it
without it," she said. Her reasons?
"They give moral support and
understand what you're going
through. They give ideas, sugges-
tions," she explained.
When describing how the
group uplifts her and gives her
ideas, she told of a time when she
was reading a book and her moth-
er spilled water on the book. "The
caregiver group helps me to know
that anything that happens like that
is not important. The person is
important. Now I try to laugh
about such things and go on. My
mother is blind and spills every-
where and you have to clean it up.
So I just clean it up. I feel it is a privi-
lege to care for her. I want to have
her as long as I can. What a bless-
ing it is. Being in a group helps
remind me of the things that are
important. Not a book ... it's just a
book," she said.
Ms. Curtis also gave a unique
perspective of what the person
who is being cared for might feel
like. She said, "When you are a
caregiver, they [the patient] feel
unimportant. They need the care."
She said there are times when she
forgets things and her mother
remembers them for her. "When I
use her memory, I make her feel
important. My mother is a very spe-
cial lady," said Ms. Curtis.

The group
Enid Boutrie, social worker at
Hospice of Okeechobee, runs the
weekly caregiver support group
that meets at 2 p.m. on Thursdays.
"The group is for anyone in the
community who needs it," Ms.
Boutrie said. Now there are five in
the group; however, the number of
members fluctuates. Ms. Boutrie
explained: "We had more, but in
one case a family member was
unable to attend when the hospice
patient grew more ill."
From Ms. Boutrie's perspective,
the support group is very beneficial
to caregivers. "They are here to get
emotional support. By the grace of
God we have respite for the care-
giver through the facility and
through Senior Services," she said.

Finding respite
The hospices rely on Okee-
chobee Senior Services, which
serves as a conduit to community
caregiver services such as All
About You, Elite Caregiver Services,
Truly A Blessing, and Shirley's Per-
sonal Care. Some of these agencies
also take calls from private individ-
uals for respite care.
According to Sheila Savage,
program manager, Okeechobee
Senior Services subcontracts tothe
,caregiver services for respite care.
She said they offer very limited
respite care by certified caregivers
based on monies from a grant. The
certified caregivers are either certi-
fied nursing assistants, home
health aides, or personal care and
respite assistants.
"We order the services from the
agencies by purchase order. and
contract with .them to provide a
certain amount of clients with a
certain amount of hours per
week," Ms. Savage said. She added
that respite care is given in four- or
eight-hour increments and it con-
sumes a lot of time. They currently
serve 23 clients and have a waiting
list.
Ms. Savage spoke highly of
those who are caregivers, not just
the contract personnel, but also
those who are family members
caring for a loved one. "There are
some really great people out there
who are taking care of the people
they love, sometimes sacrificing
their own lives and health. Our hats


should really be off to the people
who do this," she said.

Finding solace
Dick Blair, 91, said he lost his
wife over two years ago. "She was
the first patient in hospice care at
Raulerson Hospital," he said. Mr.
Blair has been a member of the
bereavement group at Hospice of
Okeechobee since that time.
"I think this is the greatest place
in Okeechobee for people to get
therapy. God, the Lord, gave us the
ability to love and we can use that
love to grieve. Everybody grieves to
some degree. People can come
here and talk or not talk, cry or not
cry, hear other people's stories and
it stays here. I don't know of any
other place to get this kind of thera-
py, at no cost," he said, adding that
the best benefit of the groups the
sharing.
Ms. Boutrie leads the bereave-
ment group that meets for an hour
every Tuesday beginning at 10 a.m.
She said that anyone from the
community is welcome to join the
group. "Letting go of the pain and
just listening to each other is very
important. A person has to be bet-
ter for having come to the group,"
she said.
Mary Barricklow said her hus-
band Joe spent some time in a hos-
pice and some at home. He died at
home with her as his primary care-
giver after a four-year battle with
cancer. While it was difficult pick-
ing up the pieces after his passing,
she began to find solace through
family members and old friends.
"I was here with him. The only
time I left was to pick up medica-
tions and take care of business,"
she said. Continuing, she added,
"My sister would come and stay
with him. I did not have respite
care. Personally, I did not want to
be gone from him. We had a very
close relationship the whole time
we were together."
Mrs. Barricklow said there is a
lot of talk about it being harder on
the caregiver. "But to me, it was
worse on him than me. He was the
one who was sick and couldn't get
up and go," she said. As primary
caregiver, she bathed her husband,
changed him, gave him his med-
ications and changed his feeding
tube after being trained.
She explained: "If a machine
didn't work right, I learned how to
fix it. I learned a lot. Before he
came home from the hospital, they
showed me how to operate the
equipment. But if I found an easier
way to do something, I did it,
regardless of what the book said. I
did it for a couple of years and
never got tired. I.1 loved what I did.
The patient is better off to be at
home, and I knew he wanted to be
athomd."
There were sometimes when
he would see a hospice nurse. "He
lit up when anybody came to see
him," she said.
As her eyes welled with tears,
Mrs. Barrickow said, "I was there
until he took his last breath. I was
strong until he was gone. We could
be around each other 24 hours a

Helpful hints on removing tree stumps


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
After last year's storms many
landscapes have lost trees, and
their stumps remain as eyesores,
termite factories and bumps that
are bothersome to mowers.
Today's column comes to us from
former UF Extension Specialist
Bob Black who has some sugges-
tions on how they may be
removed with the least amount of
effort and expense.
Trees are a major part of the
landscape around our homes.
They enhance the beauty of our
homes as well as shade them from
the hot summer's sun. Unfortu-
nately, when a tree dies, the home-
owner is forced to go through the
expense of, having the tree
removed. In many instances, the
upper portion of the tree is
removed and the homeowner is
left with an unsightly stump. There
are no cheap, easy and quick
methods of removing tree stumps,
but here are some helpful hints on
what can be done.
If you have the patience,.rotting
is probably the cheapest and easi-
est method of stump removal. Rot-
ting or decaying is a process by


U; UNIVERSITY OF
SFLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION
which fungi break down wood.
Fungi do not have chlorophyll and
therefore cannot make food like
green plants. They obtain their
food from other sources such as
wood stumps.
The decaying process can be
accelerated by supplying the fungi
with warm temperatures and
moisture. We can do little to con-
trol the temperature; however, we
can keep the stump moist by
watering. If you cover the stump
with a plastic tarp, it will also keep
the- stump moist and speed up
decay.
Decay can also be sped up by
boring large vertical holes at least l-
inch in diameter into the stump.
These holes expose more wood
surface to the wood-decaying
fungi. The addition of a small
amount of nitrogen fertilizer will
also speed the decay process.
However, avoid adding large quan-
tities of fertilizer to the stump.
Fungi, like green plants, can be
burned when over-fertilized.
The speed of decay will depend
greatly on the species of tree. The
wood of some species such as
cypress, cedar, mulberry and oak is
very resistant to attack by fungi and
will take much longer to decay.
The quickest method of stump
removal is simply digging and cut-
ting the stump out of the ground.
This process requires a strong back
and may involve many hours of
hard work. The procedure consists
of digging a ditch or trench around
the stump from 1 to 2 feet wide and
1 to 2 feet deep, severing the roots
with an axe, and dragging the
stump from the hole.
Burning has long been a
method of stump removal. Some
have added petroleum products to
stumps before burning, which is
dangerous, illegal, and can also
permanently pollute the soil. How-
ever, because of strict local fire
ordinances on burning and the fact
that this method can be danger-


ous, other methods of stump
removal should be used.
Another way to have a tree
stump removed is to call a tree sur-
geon or tree removal service. They
have machines which will remove
the stump by grinding it into small
chips. The process takes only a few
minutes but may be expensive.
The cost of renting a stump grinder
for a day may be a few hundred
dollars consider sharing this
cost with a few of your neighbors
who also have lost trees recently.
There are chemicals offered for
sale which claim to be effective in
stump removal. Some of these
chemicals have been tested and
found ineffective. There are no
magical chemicals on the market
which will dissolve a stump in a
few days.
If you don't feel like going
through the hassle of removing a


tree stump, make good use of it in
your landscape. A tree stump can
be made into a very interesting
container for growing plants. Pot
plants placed on a tree stump will
help it to blend into the landscape.
And, as you remove that stump,
spend some time thinking about
replacing that important part of
your Florida Yard with an equally
beautiful tree. Our office can help
you select that perfect replacement
for your landscape.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you need additional information

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-

Raulerson Hospital wins award


Raulerson Hospital was
awarded the Florida Hospital
Association's Best Practice in Edu-
cation award for the staff educa-
tion program "Sailing into Patient
Safety". The program used cruise
ship style games and activities to
teach each hospital employee
and volunteer about the patient
safety programs implemented at
the hospital. The activities includ-
ed "Abbreviation Blackjack"
which reviewed abbreviations
that should not be used due to the
potential for misinterpretation,
"Wheel of Infection" which
reviewed infection control prac-
tices, "Lightening Rights" which
highlighted all patients' rights.
Other stations included:
"Embarkation and Identification"
(correct patient identification),
"Latex Downs" (safety for per-
sons with latex allergies), "Name
That Code" (responses during
emergencies), "DNR Bingo" (liv-
ing wills, advanced directives),
and "Time Out" (a buffet and
review of the time out protocol
which includes verifying that the
right patient is about to receive
the right procedure).
Each person entering the pro-
gram was given a "passport"
which was stamped as each sta-
tion was completed. Each station
incorporated a game with a
review of the important safety
information. The hospital direc-
tors and supervisors acted as the
"hosts/dealers" at each station.
The award was presented to
Charlene Carcaro, MSN, RN, C the
director of education and creator
of the program, at the Florida
Society for Healthcare Education
and Training Conference in July.
The program will be published in
the Florida Hospital Association
journal "Focus".
Patient safety is an important
focus at Raulerson Hospital.
Patients are asked to state their
name and date of birth repeatedly
and this information is compared
to written documentation. Surgi-

Bralqnans defeat Bull Dogs 35-22 in season opener
y Lom a Jablonski ..
Okeechobee News M __ -


The Okeechobe Brahmans
opened the 2005 gridiron season
Saturday evening in front of a
large enthusiastic home crowd
with a 35-22 win over the South
Fork Bull Dogs.
The season opening game
postponed from Friday night due
to possible inclement weather
conditions held a series of firsts
for the Brahmans. This was the
first game of the official high
school football season (last
week's win over Moore Haven
41-0 was a pre-season game);
the first win of the season; the
first game of the year at Brah-
man Stadium; and the first sea-
son game for the Brahmans'
new coaching staff led by head
coach-Chris Branham.
The Brahmans put the first
score of the game onto the
board with 48 seconds remain-
ing in the first quarter with a
touchdown by senior Rashad
Kelly. The point after was
blocked by the Bull Dogs putting
the Brahmans out in front 6-0 at
the end of the quarter.
At 8:40 in the second quarter
the Brahmans again threatened
.when a long. pass from Virgil
Barrett t6 Tiffiny Williams put
the Brahmans inside the Bull
Dog 10-yard line. The South Fork
defense dug in and took the ball
back with 6:43 remaining.
With 10 seconds left in the
quarter, the Bull Dogs attempted
field goal was no good as it
sailed across the end zone wide
to theright.
The Brahmans returned to
-the field at the beginning of the
third quarter still in the lead 6-0.
The Bull Dogs had several
scoring opportunities early in the

as the Brahmans defeated the Bull Dogs of South Fork 35-22
in front of a large hometown crowd.


third quarter but failed to capital-
ize on them when the strong
Brahman defense dug in and
held them out of the Brahman
end zone.
Half way through the quarter
the Brahmans erupted when
senior Cody Storey's long run
down the sideline put the Brah-
mans up 12-0. Rashad Kelly then
dove over the goal line for two
more points. The Brahmans
now led 14-0. But the quarter
was still not over.
At 5:01 on the clock the Bull
Dogs finally made it to the board
scoring on a kick-off return from
the Brahmans. They again made
it to the board with a 39-yard
field goal with just less than two
minutes left in the quarter.
The Brahmans were up 14-10
as the third quarter neared an
end. But, the Brahmans were not
satisfied with that lead. Barrett
tucked the ball and flew down
the field for an 80-yard touch-
down followed by Kelly's two-


point conversion bringing the
score to 22-10.
Unbelievably, the quarter was
still not over. Isaac McNeil added
yet another six points to the
Brahman score before the quar-
ter finally came to an end with
the Brahmans up 28-10.
At 8:16 in the fourth quarter
the Bull Dogs scored a field goal
to bring the score to 28-13.
But the Brahmans were still
not done. Kenny Spencer took
the ball in with 5:43 remaining in
the game to put the Brahmans
up 34-13. The point after was
good and the Brahmans led 35-
13.
The Bull Dogs were not yet
ready to lie down and roll over.
They crossed the Brahman goal
line and made the point after.
with a minute left in the game.
The score was now 35-20.
There were only 56 seconds
left in the game when a safety
gave the Bull Dogs another two
points. The game ended with the


Bubba, the Brahman mascot and his friends (left to right) Kayla Walters, Amanda May, and
Tarin Weintraub were on hand Saturday to cheer for the Okeechobee High School Brahmans
as they took to the field in their season opener against South Fork. The Brahmans won 35-22.


Brahmans up 35-22.
Following the game, Okee-
chobee High School principal
Gary Kirsch made his way across
the field to congratulate the
Brahmans. "This is great. I'm
speechless with pride for our
kids," said Mr. Kirsch.
Coach Branham gave credit
for the win to the team and to his
assistant coaches. "We're on our
way," grinned Branham. "I have
to give credit for this win to our
players and to my coaching staff.
They are really into what we are
doing. We worked hard, prac-
ticed hard and played as hard."
The Brahmans next game will
be on Sept. 2 when they travel to
Avon Park. Kick off is scheduled
for 7:30 p.m. They will return
home on Sept. 9 to meet Lake
Placid. Kick off time for that
game is also scheduled for 7:30
p.m.
