OMS to help
Katrina victims
Osceola. Middle School
(OMS) students have begun
their wildest fundraising activity
yet. Beginning on Tuesday, stu-
dents began donating their
spare change for two causes.
The first and most important
cause is to benefit the victims of
Hurricane Katrina. The second
cause, however, is to amuse
themselves by making OMS's
Deans of Students act silly for a
day.

Brahmans trample
Green Dragons 40-0
A large, enthusiastic home
crowd greeted the Okeechobee
Brahmans as they stampeded
onto the field of Brahman Stadi-
um Friday evening to take on
the Lake Placid Green Dragons.
By the time the dust settled at
the end of the fourth quarter,
the Brahmans led 40-0.
The Green Dragons won the
toss and elected to receive the
ball. That would be the high-
light of the night for the Drag-
ons.

Relief effort: Drop boxes are filling up

Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Donations for the Franklinton Relief effort so far include canned foods, school supplies
and Ziploc bags of clothing. Debbie Clemons at the Livestock Market came up with the
idea for "Ziploves." A Ziplove is a Ziploc bag containing clothing for the hurricane vic-
tims. The size is written on the outside of the bag, making it easier to keep clean and to
distribute.

Donations sought for Franklinton


The Okeechobee County
Chamber of Commerce was
operating in high gear Friday,
organizing relief for the victims of
Hurricane Katrina in the small,
rural community of Franklinton,
La.
Executive Director Brenda
O'Connor said relief supplies are
starting to come into the cham-
ber office, as well as in drop
boxes all over Okeechobee.
She said many people feel a
connection to the hurricane vic-
tims.
The damage left locally in the
wake of the 2004 storm season,
"was a humbling experience,"
she said.
Hurricane Katrina was much
worse than anything Okee-
chobee County had to deal with,
she said.
Ms. O'Connor said people in
Okeechobee are excited about
the' Franklinton relief effort
because they know it will help.
"They can donate something
and know it will directly get to
someone in need," she said.
Donations sought include:


"They can donate something and know it will
directly get to someone in need."
Brenda O'Connor,
Executive Director


canned foods, individual juice
drinks, toiletries, paper goods,
personal hygiene items, cooking
grills, coolers, pillows, sleeping
bags, outdoor extension cords,
disposable diapers, baby food,
baby formula, condiments,
instant coffee, instant tea, pow-
dered drinks (such as Gatorade,
Kool-Aid and Crystal Lite), hand
sanitizer, disposal utensils, paper
plates, disposable cups and
school supplies.
New clothes and clothing in
"like new" condition is also
needed. Clothing should be
packaged in one or two gallon
Ziploc bags, with the size written
on the outside of the bag. If possi-
ble, try to package an outfit in
one bag.
Distribution boxes have been
placed at businesses around
Okeechobee. Large donations


may also be taken to the Cham-
ber of Commerce or to the VFW
Post on U.S. 441 S.E.
Collections will continue
through Friday, Sept. 16. On Sat-
urday, Sept. 17, volunteers will
gather at the VFW to load a semi
truck with the donations.
Monetary donations may be
made to the Franklinton Relief
Fund at First Bank of Indiantown.
Money donated to the fund will
be used to purchase supplies to
take to Frainklinton.
The town of Franklinton was
chosen because it is a small, rural
community. While major relief
efforts focus on the coastal com-
munities and large cities, the
rural areas are often forgotten.
Franklinton's economy is based
on the dairy and timber indus-
tries both were impacted by the
hurricanes.

Okeechobee News
Survivors of hurricanes tell
their stories. Now we are hear-
ing the stories of devastation and
death in the wake of Hurricane
Katrina. Existing in the written
history of the Lake Okeechobee
area of Florida are accounts of
survivors of the Hurricanes of
1926 and 1928. Those hurri-
canes destroyed Belle Glade,
Pahokee, South Bay, Clewiston
and Moore Haven, Lakeport and
Okeechobee in much the same
way. History leaves us those
accounts as history will leave
the accounts of the stories of the
survivors of Hurricane Katrina to
our children.

old when the Hurricane of 1928

Tips on how



to conserve gas


Researched by
MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
If you were driving in the
1970s during the Arab oil embar-
go, you remember the skyrock-
eting gas prices. Here we are
again.
The reasons are different, but
the effects are the same and a
few months of over $3-a-gallon
gas prices will put a dent in any-
one's budget.
In case you've forgotten, here
is the brush-up course in getting
more bang for the buck(s) you
have to spend when you gas
your vehicle.


Drive sensibly: Aggressive
driving (speeding, rapid acceler-
ation and braking) wastes gas. It
can lower gas mileage by 33 per-
cent at highway speeds and by 5
percent around town.
Fuel economy benefit: 5-33
percent
Observe the speed limit: Gas
mileage decreases rapidly at
speeds above 60 mph.
Each 5 mph you drive over 60
mph is like paying an additional
.15-cents per gallon for gas.
Fuel economy benefit: 7-23
percent
Remove excess weight:

ridge and rented a room. Many
people were in the hotel and oth-
ers continued to come even after
the storm abated. The Watan-
abes, Japanese and good of heart,
fed people all that day, and Vivian
helped them.
"Wet clothes hung on the
second floor screened in porch
of the hotel for several days, and
Vivian's room was piled high
with wet clothes. Everyone
made a run on Cecil Parkinson's
store, and the women turned
out in dungarees. Parkinson's
completely sold out.
"Harold Clark found me (in
south Bay) as he was trying to
salvage things from his family's
home. He told me that some of
my folks were down near the
post office and had been looking
for me.
"I climbed up on the roadway
and crossed the bridge. The post
office was narrowly separated
from the locks, and I saw the
barge (which the wind had
blown up against the lock) still
in the locks. I learned later that
most of the people in South Bay
had survived by getting on the
barge.
"Ivan Van Horn was given
credit for saving the lives of the
211 people on board which
were most of the people in the
South Bay area. He
Stayed outside on the deck all
night, unprotected from the
wind and the rain, and kept the
bilge pump running while oth-
ers bailed water, and the barge
stayed afloat.'
"They took me to the post
office which was still standing
and Mrs. Hartline, who lived


there, gave me some soup. She
also gave me some of Eric's
clothes which I remember were
too big for me. I had gone
through the hurricane unhurt,
barefoot, in overalls and shirt
and I lost only one button.
"My dad's body was the first
body recovered after the hurri-
cane passed. Ivan Van Horn
found him on the west side of
the canal close to the bridge. His
skull had been crushed.
"My brother, Raymond was
carried to the bridge and hung
on to it until just before day-
break. My other brother, Melvin
was able to hang on to a small
building back of the lumber yard
on the west side of the canal.
"Old Mr. Hutchinson had a
flashlight and had started to our
house in the early part of the
storm. He had been unable to
reach our house and had taken
refuge in the small building
before Melvin landed there.
"It was nothing short of a mir-
acle that Melvin was able to grab
our sister, Hilda as she came
tumbling along in the dark
waters behind him. The three of
them were able-to hang on to
this building through the storm.
I distinctly remember that I had
seen a light blink several times
as I was thrown about in the
black night in the tumbling
waters. It might have been Mr.
Hutchinson's flashlight.
"In addition to the loss of our
father, our sister, Laura was
drowned as were Hilda's three
children. Eight of the fourteen
who took refuge in our house
were lost, and six of us survived.
I was ten years old.
"We left South Bay the sec-
ond day after the storm on a
truck belonging to the Huffman
Construction Company. We

West Palm Beach where we
were taken to a hotel on the
lake.
"Our sister, Mildred had gone
through the storm in the George
Washington Hotel where she
was working at that time. She

was looking for us. She found
me out on the sidewalk trying to

Brahmans trample Green Dragons 40-0


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
A large, enthusiastic home
crowd greeted the Okeechobee
Brahmans as they stampeded
onto the field of Brahman Stadi-
um Friday evening to take on the
Lake Placid Green Dragons: By
the time the dust settled at the end
of the fourth quarter, the Brah-
mans led 40-0..
The Green Dragons won the
toss and elected to receive the
ball. That would be the highlight
of the night for the Dragons.
The Brahmans wasted no time
in taking possession of the ball,
and with 10:15 on the clock Virgil
Barrett raced into the Dragon end
zone for the first touchdown of
the night. The point after was
good putting the Brahmans up 7-
0.
The Green Dragons lost the
ball on downs and the Brahmans
were back in possession. The
Dragons intercepted the ball on
the Brahman 16-yard line only to
lose it again as Brahman birthday
boy Tommy Campbell grabbed it
back on the Dragon 35-yard line.
With 1:07 remaining in the quar-
ter, sophomore Timmy Williams
crashed across the goal line to put
the Brahmans up 13-0.
The strong Brahman defense
continued to work their magic as
the second quarter got under way.
It took them a little over a minute
to regain possession of the ball
when Williams snatched the ball
away from the Dragon offense
and sprinted down the field to the
Dragon five-yard line.
Devon Faison crossed the g6al
line to score another six for the
Brahmans., With the point after
good, the Brahmans now led 20-0.
With 16 seconds left in the sec-
ond quarter the Dragons stormed
down the field toward the Brah-
man goal on a series of short pass-
es. With four seconds left in the

The Brahmans stampeded onto the field Friday night to meet the Green Dragons of Lake
Placid. Those Brahmans leading the charge were (left to right) No. 11-Chris Cyr, No. 74-Rex
Erwin, No. 43-Josh Raulerson and No, 10-Travis Conrad.


half a Dragon receiver dropped the
ball in the Brahman end zone just
as time ran out and the Brahmans
went into the field house up 20-0.
During half time, the Blazing
Brahman Band entertained the
exuberant crowd with selections
from the "Phantom of the Opera".
The third quarter began with
the Green Dragons kicking off to
the Brahmans. At 8:24 in the quar-
ter, the Dragons intercepted a
Brahman pass on their own 34-
yard line. The Brahman defense
held them from scoring, and the
Brahmans took over the ball.
The Brahmans had several
scoring opportunities in the latter
part of the quarter, but did not
capitalize on them.
They quickly made up for
these missed opportunities as the
fourth quarter began.
Forty-one seconds into the
quarter they again scored and with
the point after good were up 27-0.
The Green Dragons could not
break through the Chobee
defense. With the Brahmans


again in control of the ball, sopho-
more LeShawn Henderson
repeatedly moved the ball deeper
and deeper into Green Dragon ter-
ritory.
Then with 6:46 remaining in
the game, senior Kenny Spencer
took the ball up the middle for the
touchdown. The Brahmans made
the point after putting the score at
34-0.
But, the Brahmans didn't slack
off. La'Ike McNeil intercepted a
Green Dragon pass and ran 30-
yards for the final touchdown of
the night. The ecstatic hometown
crowd went wild as the tri-
umphant Brahmans crossed the
field to shake the hands of the
bedraggled Green Dragons.
The Brahmans will see action
again next Friday, Sept: 16 when
they travel to John Carroll High
School. The game is scheduled to
begin at 7 p.m. Their next home
game will take place on Sept. 30
when they take on the Sebastian
River Sharks. Kick-off will be at
7:30 p.m.

Farm Bureau hails ruling in David Smith case


GAINESVILLE Rural
landowners are cheering a judge's
decision that confirms a Brevard
County family's ownership of land
it has farmed, paid taxes on and
occupied for generations.
A Brevard County Circuit Court
judge ruled against the state's
attempts to oust David Smith and
his family from land that borders
on Lake Poinsett to which they
hold record title based on a 1906
deed conveyed by the state.
In 1995, the State of Florida
sued Smith and his family, alleging
that much of the land in question
lay below a boundary commonly
known as the ordinary high water
*mark. Judge Bruce W. Jacobus
ruled the state was wrong inh
claiming the high water' mark
extended almost three miles from
what "a person of common intelli-
gence would clearly recognize as


the boundary of the lake."
In fact, Judge Jacobus ruled
that, using the state's definition of
the high water mark, an existing
subdivision would be sitting on
sovereign land of the state of Flori-
da.
"The judge's decision applied
common sense to bring this case
to a conclusion," said Scottie But-
ler, general counsel for the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation. "It is
unfortunate that David Smith and
his family were subjected to 10
years of uncertainty, emotional
stress and legal expenses."
Florida Farm Bureau and other
agricultural organizations and
*individuals rallied, to support
Smith when the action was filed
by '' the state after Smith
announced plans to develop a
, recreational facility and housing
on part of the property.


"The Smith family owned the
land in question, paid taxes on it
and farmed for generations," But-
ler said. "When Smith sought to
put it to higher use, the state
sought to deny him the use of his
land."
Butler said owners of property


adjoining navigable waterways
should be heartened by the deci-
sion. While the state could con-
ceivably appeal the decision, he
said, "Judge Jacobus's decision is
well reasoned and clearly stated
and could likely stand up to judi-
cial review."

Do-It Yourself Ideas


Lawn Ornaments


These eight adorable lawn ornaments are sure to sur-
prise and delight everyone. Imagine them in the gar-
den, on the lawn, in a flower bed or even in a child's
room. Ideal for beginning do-it-yourselfers, all that's
required is some scrap lumber, a saw, sandpaper and
paint and sealer (if they're going to be displayed out-
doors). Simply trace the patterns onto wood, cut out,
sand, paint and seal.
The completed Jawn ornaments range in size from
12 to 16 inches tall.
The plan includes complete step-by-step instruc-
tions, full-size traceable patterns, materials lists and
painting guides for eight lawn ornaments.
