Red Cross Fumr '- Having fun for a good cause


How to help
'the Katrinians'
Many residents of
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama have been forced
from their homes, and are in
need of assistance. These are
not refugees, and while they
may be displaced, many
desire to return to their com-
munities. I've noticed some
difficulty in naming these
folks, and would suggest that
they might be called "Katrini-
ans" those affected by this
terrible storm.
In the past two and a half
years that I've worked in
Okeechobee, I've come to
learn that local residents are
extremely generous when it
really counts. The recent
events in the Gulf Coast have
pulled at our hearts and chal-
lenged us all to dig deep into
our pockets, especially in light
of our own local experiences
with severe weather.

From the Executive Editor


Ziploves are a gift of


love for storm victims


-By Katrina Elsken
Executive Editor
Debbie and Jeff Clemons
came into the Okeechobee News
last week to ask us to get the
word out about their idea to help
the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Debbie was on the way to
donate some clothes to a relief
drive when it occurred to her that
two pieces of an outfit might be
separated from each other before
reaching their destination. So she
went home and got a large Ziploc
bag, put the outfit inside, and
wrote the size on the outside.
And she realized that not only
did this keep the outfit together,
the plastic bag would also keep it
clean and dry, and clearly
labeled.
Many of us remember the dis-
aster of Hurricane Andrew. Hun-
dreds of pounds of clothing
donated for the victims of that
hurricane wound up being
hauled to a landfill because it was
too difficult to distribute the
mountains of loose clothing, and
because much of that clothing
was ruined by rain.
If all donated clothing were
placed in two gallon Ziploc bags,
it would be protected and also
much easier to distribute. Instead
of telling hurricane survivors to
dig through a mountain of cloth-
ing to try to find something that
fit, those distributing the supplies
could ask the size and then find
the right bag. The clear bags also
make it possible to see the color
and pattern of the clothing with-
out opening the bags. Other
small items could also be includ-
ed in the bag a small toy or
book in a child's bag; a comb or
brush in a woman's bag; and, a
razor in a man's bag.
The bags don't have to -include
a whole outfit. A Ziplove might
hold a pair of shoes, a new pair of
socks or a shirt and a ball cap.
(You wouldn't want to put shoes
in with pants and tops anyway
because, shoe size is not related
to the person's clothing size.)
Clothing should be new or in
good condition no stains or
tears, no buttons missing.
Debbie named the donations
"Ziploves." But very quickly, she
discovered that Ziploves are not
really about clothing. Ziploves are
about giving. As the word spread
about the Ziplove idea, people
started getting creative. A Ziplove
with baby clothes might include a
few diapers, a small package of
baby wipes and a small toy. A
package for a woman might
include a new bra and under-
wear, a pretty scarf and some


feminine hygiene items. Anything
a hurricane victim needs might
be used in a Ziplove work
gloves for handling hurricane
debris, insect repellant for com-
bating mosquitoes, school sup-
plies ... use your imagination.
The packages may also
include personal notes of encour-
agement such as "We survived
two hurricanes and we know you
can make it too!" or "We're pray-
ing for you." Just knowing some-
one cares can mean a lot.
The Okeechobee community
is currently collecting Ziploves
and other hurricane supplies for
the rural community of Franklin-
ton, La. and Washington Parish.
(A parish is like a county).
Franklinton was chosen because
it is a small town that was not get-
ting attention from the, national
relief organizations. Although
Franklinton only has a population
of about 4,000, it is the largest
town in the parish and is the
parish seat. About 80 percent of
the homes in Franklinton were
damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Another smaller town in the
parish was almost completely
destroyed.
Franklinton has been sharing
what supplies they get in with the
other towns and the outlying
areas.
Their economy is based on
agriculture with dairy and timber
industries. The timber industry
took a big hit from the hurricane
winds. The dairies were left with-
out power and while most were
able to run the milking machines
using generators, for about a
week they had to dump the milk
because there was no way to
refrigerate or transport it. These
are small family farms, with
-about 1 Oto 150 cows each.
4-H :and-;,A> are'very popular:
in Washington Payish. About
1,100 studerits are eif ir in 4-H or
FFA or both that's nearly every
school age child in the county.
These are farm folks who
need food, bedding, work clothes
and school clothes. Franklinton's
schools were damaged by the
storm, but school will start again
on Sept. 19, using whatever
buildings available to attempt to
get the kids back into a more nor-
mal routine.
Ziploves and other supplies
for storm victims may be
dropped off at the Okeechobee
Livestock Market on U.S. High-
way 98, the Chamber of Com-
merce, the VFW Post on U.S.
Highway 441 S.E. or in any of the
Franklinton Relief boxes in stores
and.businesses around the com-
munity.

How to help 'the Katrinians'


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Many residents of Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama have
been forced from their homes,
and are in need of assistance.
These are not refugees, and
while they may be displaced,
many desire to return to their
communities. I've noticed some
difficulty in naming these folks,
and would suggest that they
might be called "Katrinians" -
those affected by this terrible
storm.
In the past two and a half
years that I've worked in Okee-
chobee, I've come to learn that
local residents are extremely
generous when it really counts.
The recent events in the Gulf
Coast have pulled at our hearts
and challenged us all to dig deep
into our pockets, especially in
light of our own local experi-
ences with severe weather.
With overwhelming media
coverage, 'many are very con-

cerned about what can be done
to ease the suffering and assist in
recovery. Officials have cau-
tioned us not to go.on the road to
offer help, but we still desire to
lend a hand. And, rising fuel
costs and the expected higher
costs for future goods and servic-
es has got our attention.
Today's column is designed to
offer suggestions on how to help
right here at home, and how to
cope with rising energy costs.
1. When driving Slow
down! Excessive speed wastes
fuel. Do you really need to pass
the car in font of you so you will
be in front of them at the next red
light? Speeding creates greater
opportunities for serious injury
and property damage. Accidents
will cost ALL drivers more in

insurance premiums, health care
costs, legal fees, traffic school
and tickets. Serious accidents
from speeding may deprive you
of people, you love forever.
Wouldn't it be better to arrive a
few minutes or seconds later?
And, you can take all the money
you save in gas and costs and
send it to the Katrinians!
2. Maintain your vehicle: Tune
up your engine, check your tires
for proper inflation, change the
spark plugs, clean the air filters.
All of these common sense main-
tenance tips can save you gas.
3. Purchase a fuel efficient
vehicle. If you don't need the 4x4
with hemi-supercharged
engines, if you aren't regularly
hauling armies of troops all over
Iraq, and if you don't regularly
pull livestock trailers, consider
trading in that gas guzzler for a
smaller vehicle that will pass
many more gas stations before
fill-ups.
4. Car Pool. Get together with
friends or relatives, plan your
driving trips in advance, and have
a friend to talk with on your way
about town. With fewer cars on
the road, it may even-ease traffic
congestion.
5. Save Electricity. Turn off
unnecessary appliances, lights,
computers, TVs, chargers. Turn
up the thermostat in your home
and office. Since electricity
comes from power plants that
burn natural gas or oil, saving
electricity saves fossil fuels,
reducing the demand and lower-
ing fuel costs.
6. Send money to your
favorite charity. Check out the
guidelines supplied by the Feder-
al Trade Commission to see if the
charity is legitimate; we can give
you a copy or go online:
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/con-
line/pubs/tmarkg/charity.htm.
Decide where your donation is
best used to help displaced res-
idents, rebuilding funds, emer-
gency relief supplies, faith-based
organizations, or service organi-
zations that you already know.
Our office can not endorse any
particular organizations or funds,
but we can share a list of several
that have been referred to us
from other Extension offices and
staff in effected areas.
7. Donate purchased materi-
als (e.g. phone cards, non-per-
ishable food or personal comfort
supplies). Contact the charity
that will; receive them totbe sure
they can get them into needy
hands. Once yo6u give the items
to that charity, they must spend
money to deliver the goods and
cash will help them pay for these


transportation costs. Don't send
clothes or perishable foods.
8. Create care packages that
will be sent to effected Katrini-
ans: Mississippi 4-H suggests put-
ting together 4-H activity kits
which contain supplies, 4-H col-
oring books, 4-H T-shirts and les-
son plans and activities for kids
and parents. Project Backpack
was highlighted on National Pub-
lic Radio last week; they assem-
bled 5000 kid's backpacks filled
with school supplies and games
that are on their way to effected
kids; see their website at:
http://www.projectbackpack.org
9. Consider offering housing
to Katrinians. Many have offered
homes, rooms or house sharing
on a temporary basis. Before you
make the offer, be sure to think
through what it will mean. to
have strangers for several
months in your homes and
decide what you can afford to
provide. Several websites are
coordinating these activities:
http://www.hurricanehousing.or
g,
http://www.openyourhome.com
http://www.katrinahomes.org/p
ortal.php and
http://www.nola.com.
10. Write letters of encourage-
ment for example, Mississippi
and Louisiana 4-H offices are
accepting letters of encourage-
ment that will be sent to effected
4-H club members.
Oh, and one more relief idea
is essential Pray.
I've placed a contact informa-
tion sheet and links to more
information on our Okeechobee
Extension web page, http://okee-
chobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If you need
additional information on recov-
ery donation suggestions, please
email us at
okeechobee@ifas.ufl.edu or call
us at (863) 763-6469. Local resi-
dents can stop by our office at
458 Hwy 98 North in Okee-
chobee, and visit our Okee-
chobee County Master Garden-
ers on Tuesday afternoons from
I until 5 p.m.

Golfers inducted into Hall


By Daniel Shube
During an induction cere-
mony last week at the PGA Golf
Club in Port St. Lucie, a distin-
guished class of 122 PGA Pro-
fessionals was enshrined into
the new PGA Golf Professional
Hall of Fame.
The inductees, all PGA Past
Presidents, PGA Golf Profes-
sionals of the Year, and mem-
bers of the original PGA Hall of
Fame were honored for their
significant and enduring contri-
buti to The PGA of America
and e game of golf. Each
member of the PGA Golf Pro-
fessional Hall of Fame has his
name engraved on granite
bricks located on the south por-
tico of the PGA Historical Cen-
ter.
This year's inductees are
PGA Honorary President M.G.
Orender, of Jacksonville Beach,
Fla., and Craig Harmon, PGA
Head Professional at Oak Hill
Country Club in Rochester,
N.Y., the 2004 PGA Golf Profes-
sional of the Year.
Orender lead a delegation of
31 overall Past Presidents into
the Hall, a list that begins with
the Association's first president,
Robert White, who served from
1916-1919.
"I'm humbled by the
honor," said Orender. "I have
never set out to receive any
accolades, and to be consid-
ered to this level by your peers
and be in the same Hall is very
special. To have the privilege of
cutting the ribbon for the dedi-
cation of the PGA Historical
Center (in 2002), and to now
have my name added to the
Hall of Fame is a more than I
can dream. I'm most grateful."
Harmon headed a 5.1-mem-
ber group who were recipients
of The PGA's highest annual
honor, Golf Professional of the
Year. The Award was first pre-
sented in 1955 to Bill Gordon of
Chicago's Tam O'Shanter
Country Club. Four PGA Past
Presidents are also among the
PGA Golf Professional of the
Year group; the late Warren
Orlick (1960), the late Don Pad-
gett (1961); Ken Lindsay (1983)
and Tom Addis III (1989).
Jock Olson, PGA Head Pro-
fessional at Interlachen Coun-.
try Club in Edina, Minn., was
the 2002 PGA Golf Professional
of the Year. "I served on the Hall
of Fame Committee when I was
on the Board of Directors," said
Olson. "At that time, we still had
the PGA World Golf Hall of
Fame in Pinehurst [N.C.]. We
had hoped to have a Hall of
Fame to honor the PGA Profes-
sional, and that time has finally
come. I am extremely honored,
and I tell my family that I'm too
young to go into a Hall of Fame,
but I am indebted, and I deeply
thank The PGA of America."
The PGA Past Presidents and
PGA Golf Professionals of the
year joined 44 PGA members
who were among the original
inductees in the PGA Hall of
Fame that began in 1940, upon


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube


the suggestion of legendary
sportswriter Grantland Rice.
"It is certainly an honor that
ranks at the top for me," said
Past PGA President Gary Schaal
of Surfside Beach, S.C. "I'm
really flattered, and it will be
fun to meet some old friends. It
is a terrific group of individuals
to be a part of such a ceremony.
"Years ago, the thought of a
Hall of Fame and .Historical
Center were just ideas. It has
materialized, and you have to
thank the leadership of The
PGA for accomplishing this. It is
fantastic."
Dedicated in 2002, The PGA
of America opened the PGA
Historical Center in PGA Village
in Port St. Lucie, Fla., which
paved the way for a home for
the PGA Golf Professional Hall
of Fame.
The PGA Historical Center
celebrates the growth of golf in
the United States, as paralleled
by the advancement of The Pro-
fessional Golfers' Association
of America.
The Center's showcase is
the Probst Library, one of the
world's premier golf collections
of both periodicals and hard-
bound books. In addition, the
Center presents memorabilia
from throughout golf history
and displays that honor many
of the Association's premier
golf Professionals and events.
The PGA Historical Center is
open daily from 10 a.m. until 4
p.m. through Easter Sunday,
and weekends during the sum-
mer from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
There is no admission charge.
The center is open year-round
-to researchers. by ...special
appointment.
When you visit the PGA His-
torical Center at the PGA Vil-
lage, make a weekend out of it
and play one of the three cours-
es at The PGA Golf Club (North,
South and Dye) and work on
your game at the PGA Learning
Center. This facility is world
class, open to the public and is

tion, call (800) 800-GOLF.

Volleyball team wins match


The Lady Brahman volleyball
team won an important district
match last night with a thrilling
23-25, 28-26, 25-20, 27-29, 25-
11 win over Jensen Beach High
School.
Kelley Smiley set a school
record with 22 kills and 17 digs.
Tierra Allen was close behind
with 15 kills and 16 digs of her
own. Katie Bryan had a huge
night with seven blocks, nine
kills and 17 service points.
Senior setter, Amanda May,
also broke a school record by
dishing out 26 assists. Shaunaye
Brown added 19 assists, 6 aces
and 17 service points. It was
Brown who closed out the win
when she stepped to the service


line with the Brahmans trailing
11-10 in the deciding game and
proceeded to serve the final five
points of the match.
"Shaunaye has always been
one of our strongest servers,"
said Brahman head coach
George May. "There's no one I'd
rather have at the line with the
match on the line than Shau-
naye. This win was huge and the
neat thing is that everyone con-
tributed. Jessica Klingler may
have had her best game ever.
She was awesome. Kailey Smith
and Erica Zinsky gave us some
great energy coming off the
bench late in the match. Lauren
Throop was rock solid filling in
for Maurisa Simmons. Joleyne


Skeen came up with some great
plays at the net. It was just a
great team victory."
The win pushes the Lady
Brahmans record to 3-0 in dis-
trict play and 4-1 overall. Okee-
chobee travels to Orlando this
weekend to compete in the
Champions Winter Park tourna-
ment. The next home match for
the Lady Brahmans is Sept. 21
against Vero.
The volleyball team would
like to thank all of the enthusias-
tic fan support the past couple of
games and a special thanks goes
out to the Okeechobee Marching
Band drum line for getting every-
one fired up.

service for those patrons with e-
mail accounts. You can join the
Chapter-A-Day Online Book Club
sponsored by the Friends of the
Okeechobee County Library. All
you need to do is visit the library's
web page at www.heart-
lineweb.org,/oke and choose the
link to the Online Book Club.
Simply follow the directions on
the page. You will start receiving
chapters from popular books in
your daily e-mail. After you have
read two or three chapters from a
book, you will begin receiving
chapters from a new one. Each
Monday you will start a new
book. There is no charge for this
service. You don't even need a
library card. All you need is an e-
mail address and five minutes a
day to sample the wonderful
world of reading

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@
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 lawn 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.
