Environmental report

workshops planned


By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
It's working. Whether or not
we have an interest in "protecting
the environment", the 2005 South
Florida Environmental Report
affects everyone in South Florida.
Why? We are all living on dry
land resulting from "the draining
of the Everglades". The draining
of the Everglades was promoted
and accomplished by a state that
wanted to develop a large parcel
of land and developers who
wanted the business.
One hundred and forty or so
years ago, it seemed possible and
advantageous to drain the rich,
untamed Everglades that was
then under a sheet of water that
flowed slowly overland from the
north end of the Kissimmee
Chain of Lakes to the tip of Florida
-- now known as Everglades


National Park.
In making land yield crops,
pastures stay dry and home and
town sites free from the threat of
hurricane flooding, problems
developed.
The Kissimmee River doesn't
meander gently down the state, it
rushes down a man-made chan-
nel into Lake Okeechobee and
brings nutrient rich silt into the
lake.
The lake no longer overflows
white sand banks covered with
custard apple and moon vines,
depositing the floating vegetation
to decay and the rich silt to re-
nourish the Everglades muck soil,
the Herbert Hoover Dike contains
it, preventing disastrous flooding
and loss of life from hurricanes.
High water with its nutrient-
laden silt settles in the lake to be

Caloosahatchee River (labeled Drainage Ditch), which was dug around 1881.

New Endeavor offers kids second chances


Special to the Okeechobee News
At New Endeavor High
School, students are provided an
opportunity to continue the pur-
suit of a regular high- school
diploma after violating the stu-
dent.code of conduct to such a
degree as to be recommended
for expulsion. If the students
have made reasonable progress
and have not been in major trou-
ble before, they can continue
their education in a special pro-
gram. Two classes serve these
unique students, and every year
the majority of the students who
enter the program are able to
return to the feeder school from
which they came.
Mr. Brent Stuart teaches these
students at the high school level.
Mr. Stuart has devoted a number
of years to teaching at NEHS
since leaving Eckerd Youth
Development Center (EYDC)
where he gained valuable expe-


rience teaching to a wide variety
Sof students on different academ-
ic levels. Mr. Stuart has a highly
organized classroom that focus-
es on the students as learners
and teachers. He offers the class
a chance to facilitate their own
learning, allowing them to expe-
rience success and gain meaning
into real world application of
classroom assignments. He also
offers computer assisted learn-
ing to students. The ratio of stu-
dents to computers is two to
one, so students have ample
opportunities for learning
throughout the day. Mr. Stuart is
dedicated to maintaining a high-
ly structured classroom. He has
a level system that is infused into
the activities the students partici-
pate in. When visiting Mr. Stu-
art's organized classroom, it is
evident the learning never stops,
and the students are enjoying
the comfortable experience.


Oliver Harwas teaches the
middle school students. In Mr.
Oliver's class, the students are
able to receive a mixture of tradi-
tional, standard curriculum
based instruction infused with
opportunities to remediate and
enrich weaknesses using com-
puter-assisted learning pro-
grams. The students use the
computers daily and each stu-
dent completes lessons on his or
her individual level. Mr. Oliver
has participated. in district train-
ing sessions and workshops
designed to give him strategies
and techniques to increase the
students' academic perform-
ance. While using these tech-
niques, Mr. Oliver focuses on
each student individually. On
rare occasions, Mr. Harwas also
shares his talents with an
acoustic guitar to bring enjoy-
ment and music into the class-
room.

After the last busses have
pulled. away and the school
grows quiet, Mr. David Mullins
enters. Mr. Mullins teaches

have dropped out. These classes
offer students who have com-
pleted at'least 10 credits, an
opportunity to achieve a regular
diploma, not a GED. He works
with his students individually to
attain what at one time appeared
impossible, a successful school-
ing outcome.
Daily, the students at New
Endeavor strive to achieve excel-

town forum so visit the page as often as you would like and share your

make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Comments
will be published in the newspaper as space permits.

SOFTBALL FIELDS: I am calling in regard to the adult softball fields.
They are supposed to be reopened soon and I was wondering if you
could find out when and what is going on with them and why they
aren't open now. Editor's Note: According to Daryl Enfinger, director of
the Okeechobee County Parks and Recreation Department, they have
been working with contractors to rebuild the softball field facilities.
They now have good lighting. Contractors are working on replacing
the roofs on the dugouts and rebuilding the restroom facilities. They
are also working on replacing the scoreboard. He realizes it has been
a long time, but they ran into snags working with the original contrac-
tors prior to the hurricanes last year. Then, the hurricanes hit and total-
ly wiped out the facilities. He has no idea when they will be complet-
ed.

GAS SAVINGS: I would like to add a couple comments about gas
saving. I found that if you add from 3 to 5 pounds of air to your tires you
may not have the real soft drive you used to have but it isn't that uncom-
fortable. Your car rolls much easier on firmer tires. When you are driv-
ing where there are stop lights, and you see the light up ahead turn red,
get your foot off the gas. There is no sense of driving up there at top

brakes and. save some gas. When you see the light turn red, let her
coast a while.

BYPASS SUPPORT GROUP: I was wondering if there was a support
group in town for people who have had gastric bypass surgery. There
used to be one. If there is one, perhaps they could put a notice in the
paper in the community events so people who would like to talk to
someone who had the similar surgery could be in contact with some-
one with similar problems. Editor's Note: To our knowledge, there is
no longer such a support group in Okeechobee.

EMERGENCY PLANNING: The town I serve in went through both
Francis and Jeanne. Our radios were out, no phone, no power etc.
However, our emergency plans were in place and worked. Why,
because we made them work. I still stand by my original statement:
"Did the feds drop the ball? Yes, they could have done better but you
have to lay a lot of the blame on state and local governments too it is
their plans that failed the test. They should have been able to take up,
the slack until the feds could get their folks on line. Each state has a
National Guard for just such emergencies. So ease up on the feds a little
bit. I agree they could have done better but who could have predicted
the magnitude of Katrina. We were able to hold our own until the coun-
ty, state and feds arrived. Why? Because we were not under water like
New Orleans; we had a local planner that knew his business; we
planned for the disaster and worked from our plan; and, we did not
abandon it after the storm passed. We have made some changes and
updates to it after all, hind site is 20/20.

THIS WE KNOW!

A certain fact
This assurance that you are loved was offered by Grace
Christian Church.


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Reverend Larry Kilgore,
pastor of Okeechobee
Church of God
We are all familiar with the
words of Genesis 1, "In the begin-
ning, God created the heavens and
the earth.: Following are creation
after creation the sun and moon,
the fish of the sea, the birds of the
air, the beautiful flowers and trees
- each time God says, "It is good."
Then something curious hap-
pens. After creating all of the beau-
tiful things, God suddenly looks at
His creation and says, "It is not
good." What is it that causes God
to pronounce His own creation
faulty? "It is not good that man
should be ALONE." The one thing
that will make His creation out of
balance is that man would, for
whatever reason, be ALONE.
Now go to those tender
moments around the Passover
table as Jesus looks at His disciples
and says, "I will not leave you
alone." It's almost the same
words. He had been with them for
three and a half years as their
teacher, guide, mentor, but now
His heart, too, was touched with
their ALONENESS. So He prom-
ised, "I will ask the Father to send


you another Comforter" and for
two thousand years, the church
has not been ALONE, the Holy
Spirit has been our teacher, guide
and empowerer.
It is a sad fact that many Chris-
tians today feel that they can make
it ALONE. They have been affected
by imperfect Christians. and
churches, and opted out of the
communion and fellowship of
others. May I say to you, if this is
yourself, please keep looking Until
you find a fellowship where you
can be with. other believers. It is
not good that you be ALONE. It is
not God's plan that you be ALONE.
The recent passing of my father,
Reverend C. R. Kilgore, makes me
to know that we just can't make it
without the love and support of fel-
low believers. Oh, we're not per-
fect. If you look for them,, every
church in town will have flaws. Yet
it remains that it is better to be in
an imperfect fellowship than to be
ALONE. The Bible says, "If one
falls, the other one will help him
up" and "If two lie together they
will have warmth." Find the help
and the warmth this week that
only other members of the Body of
Christ can give you. Worship with
your family, the Family of Christ.!

OFC Mavericks trample Martin County 42-0


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Freshman
Campus Mavericks stunned the
Martin County Tigers 42-0 Thurs-
day evening at Brahman Stadi-
um.
The game belonged to the
Mavericks from the -first kick-off
to the last play of the game.
Lonnie Pryor started it off for
the Mavericks with a 61-yard run
into the Tiger end zone to put the
Mavericks up 6-0. Tome Files
took the ball in for the two-point
conversion, putting the Maver-
icks ahead 8-0.
Pryor was just warming up. At
the 4:59 mark in the quarter, he
again raced across the goal line
pushing the Mavericks up 14-0.
The Maverick defense was
impenetrable and the Tigers
were forced to give the ball back
to the hungry Mavericks. Files
grabbed the ball and charged
around the right end for another


Maverick touchdown. The score
was now 20-0.
The Mavericks did not let up
their attack on the Tigers as the
second quarter began. Three
minutes into the quarter, Pryor
went in for another touchdown.
This time the conversion was
good and the Mavericks led 28-0.
There was little for the Tigers
to cheer about. They could not
penetrate the strong Maverick
defense and were no match for
the Maverick's offensive speed.
With 1:49 left in the quarter
Maverick quarterback Garrett
Madrigal tossed the ball to Nate
Pollard, who took it in for the fifth
Maverick touchdown of the
game. The two-point conversion
'was good and the Mavericks
returned to the locker room at
the half up 36-0.
Neither squad scored in the
third stanza.
With only 1:25 remaining in
the game, Files raced across the


goal line for the final touchdown
of the evening.
The following freshmen play
for the Mavericks: David Givens,
Garrett Madrigal, Curtis Everett,
Michael Minondo, Jose Nazario,
Korey Sallette, Nathan Halliday,
Daniel Kidd, Adam Edwards,
Lonnie Pryor, Tome Files, Wen-
dell Hannon, Anthony Montesi,
Nate Pollard, David Jeune,
Kareem Jones, Louis Ruiz,
Leland Schoonmaker, Randall
Osceola, Dominic Casarez, C.J.
Tullio, Carson Williams, Darryl
Tindall, Damen Bert, Alex Tate,
Jonathan Schrock, James Cyr,
Jim Yates, Pablo Cardenas, Bo
Timmons and Israel Weaver.
They are coached by Bob Hard-
man, head coach; Brian Perry,
Hazell Crenshaw, Tony Chapman
and Bobby Lanier, assistant
coaches.
The Mavericks will return to
Brahman Stadium on Oct. 11 to
meet Jensen Beach at 5 p.m.


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
Players from the Okeechobee Freshman Campus Mavericks and Martin County Tigers wait
