Brahman stadium: Senior athletes honored


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
The Brahmans fought to move the ball down the field Friday night against the Panthers
of Ft. Pierce Westwood.

Panthers upset Brahmans


By Loma Jablonski -
Okeechobee News
In a game that many felt
would be dominated by the
Okeechobee Brahmans, Ft.
Pierce Westwood stunned the
Brahmans 24-13 Friday evening
at Brahman Stadium.
Prior to the game Okee-

senior fall sports athletes includ-
ing those athletes on the foot-
ball team, the swim team, the
marching band, the cheerlead-
ers, the majorettes, the cross-
country team, the bowling team
and the volleyball team.
The Brahmans and the Pan-
thers were evenly matched
through the first quarter as the
ball went back and forth on
downs with neither team able
to cross the goal line. The quar-
ter ended with a 0-0 score.
Three minutes into the sec-
ond quarter the Panthers inter-
cepted a Brahman pass and
took the ball down to the two-
yard line. At 8:14 in the quarter,
the Panthers finally made it
across the Brahman goal line on
a quarterback keeper to put the
first points of the game on the
scoreboard. With the point after
good, they led 7-0.
The Brahmans fought back
and at 5:11 on the clock, Cody

Commission


hears from


airport director


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County
Board of County Commission-
ers put in a long day Thursday
and took care of a number of
routine items.
Among other things, they
discussed Florida Power
&Light's (FP&L) proposed
generating plant in St. Lucie
County and considered air-
port rules and regulations.
The board did not complete
their agenda items until after-
noon. Then, they discussed
several topics at length but
took no formal action on
them.
Airport Director Vernon
Gray appeared before the
board to explain his proposed
set of rules and regulations for


the management and opera-
tion of the industrial park.
These rules contain such
things as minimum standards
for tenants and qualifications
to apply to lease land.
Mr. Gray told the commis-
sioners that a 1987 document
contains operating rules for
both the airport and the indus-
trial park. However, he said,
the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration (FAA) wanted separate
rules and regulations for the
airport and for the industrial
park.
He said he would soon be
presenting a set of rules and
regulations for the airport.
Mr. Gray said his proposed
rules and regulations had
been reviewed by county

As told to MaryAnn Morris
by Katherine Worth Recollections


"My husband's parents,
Enoch E. Worth and Ada
Adkinson Worth came to
Okeechobee in August of
1924. "Granny" Worth bought
land in her own name, two
lots, in Riverside Addition in
East Okeechobee from D.R.
McNeill and his wife Carrie in
February, 1924. This was the
lot at the corner of Florida
Avenue and Park Street, on the
south side. Grandpa built them
a house there. His cousin Ken-
neth Worth came down to
help build the house. He must
have liked it here, because he

"They bought more land in

corner of the street that went


up into Cypress Quarters. I

A 'watchdog'



with manners?

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.


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.

Yippie! -

By Daniel Shube
Special to the Okeechobee News
My name is Daniel Shube. I play
golf. And I have the Yips. I am no
longer in denial. I have taken the
first step in correcting this dreaded
problem. While I feel better about
myself when I see John Daly miss a
three-footer, that still does not solve
my problem. I do feel bad about
Big John's misfortune I know
how he feels!
So how does one go about get-
ting rid of the wristy strokes? The
closer to the hole I am, the worse
my stroke gets. I recently had sever-
al tips from PGA teaching profes-
sionals I've had the pleasure to play
with (I'm not sure they would say
the same about me though). I'll
briefly relay some of these tips,
without getting into too much
detail. Alas, you wouldn't want a
putting lesson from me! The best
advice I can offer is to visit your
local teaching professional for help
if you encounter this or any other
problem with your game.
The one basic response to any
putting problem is to make a fun-
damental change. That can be as
simple as reacquainting yourself
with an old putter that has been
vacationing in the garage; or treat-
ing yourself to a new putter (see
below for a few recommenda-
tions).
Another option is to change
your grip. I've tried left-hand-low
and the claw grip. I've also been
advised to close my eyes when I
putt. This actuallyworkedvery well
on the practice green. One prob-
lem associated with the yips is
peeking at the hole too soon. By
closing your eyes, there is nothing
to peek at but I do feel quite silly
playing in a tournament with my
eyes closed..
Many golfers, including profes-
sionals find that a long or belly put-
ter helps get their stroke back in
shape. Some purists think that
these putters should be outlawed.
The bottom line is they are legal
and those who have switched may
show improvement. However,
these putters are not magic. Often
players of all levels, who have tried
them, will use them for a period of
time. When they get their putting
back on track, they switch back to
short putters.
As a golf writer, I was com-
pelled to try all of the above all at
once! I began by going left-hand-
low. This did help. A little. Then I
switched clubs. First to the Q-
Roll". This helped even more. This
is a great putter that gets the ball
rolling quicker than any other put-
ter on the market. It is a wonderful
product. However, it does not solve
the problem I had with the yips.
One of my instructors, PGA Teach-
ing Professional Dave Rossi Was
watching my stroke with it and
suggested I switch to a belly putter.
He took a few putts with the Q-Roll
and eloped with it. They seem to
be on their honeymoon, very

much in love with one another.
More about the Q-Roll later.
I took Dave's advice and decid-
ed to try a belly putter. He suggest-
ed one with some weight. So I
went to the heaviest one I could
find, The Heavy Putter. This putter
is twice as heavy as any putter you
have ever held. Dave also had me
stroking this putter with a claw
grip. This combination had me
stroking the ball better- much less
wristy. I still was having some prob-
lems adjusting both to line and dis-
tance. This would require plenty of
practice to figure out. Another PGA
Teaching Professional, Chuck
Workman felt that the claw grip
was resulting in" too many pushes
to the right. He had me go to a
more conventional grip, with my
right hand low.
So how am my I doing? For me,
this might be a life-long affliction. I
really feel like I am improving. I'll
have good days and bad days. I
may require occasional help. I feel
better about myself. I am out of
denial. I know I can beat this dread-
ed problem. If your game needs
help, seek professional advice. I
know it is just a game, but when
you score low, you enjoy it even
more!
Q-Roll Putter
The Q-Roll features a patented
radius face putters that is designed
to strike the golf ball above its
equator producing immediate top-
spin and a true and more accurate
forward roll.
According to the experts at Q-
Roll, the two most significant ele-
ments in achieving an optimum
movement of a golf ball across a
putting green, and the distance it
travels, are 1) the ability of the golf
ball to reach a state of True Roll as
quickly as possible so that it will
track to the hole with less probabil-
ity of deflection from its intended
line, and 2) the amount of energy
that the ball retains, from the
impact with the putter head, after

ferent unique styles. The Celebra-

unique head shape and come in
five fun colors. The Classic Series
includes the QP2000"', QP4000,
the Fjrebird"" and the Mr. Two. The
Classic Series are brass milled with
varied designs to suit any putters
preference.
The entire Q-Roll line is milled

currently being rolled-out to major
retailers and pro shops. For now,
they can be purchased for $250 at

The Heavy Putter
The patented Heavy Putter"' is
just that, HEAVY! Why you ask?
Their heads weigh between 450
and 550 grams. Conventional put-
ter heads weigh roughly 330 to 350
grams. The heavier mass of the
putter head disengages a golfer's
small wrist muscles and engages
larger shoulder muscles. This pro-
motes a pendulum stroke and
leads to a more consistent swing
path. The heavier head mass also
produces a softer feel by dampen-
ing vibration at impact.
The heavy weight combined
with a high balance point, extreme
heal-toe weighting results in an
improved path, greater stability
and a consistent release through
impact. You will then have a superi-
or roll of the golf ball leading to
fewer putts per round and
improved scores.
The Heavy Putter is available in
several models. The A-1 is their
newest. A center-shafted blade
design offers the same features that
distinguish all Heavy Putter models
- heavy-mass putter heads and a

Brahma Bull helps hurricane victims


On Sept. 25, the Brahma Bull
Restaurant was the scene of fun
and fundraising for the victims of
Hurricane Katrina.,
The fun included a very popular
dunk tank, entertainment by the
Hard Livin' Band, Brad Brock and
the Renegades and Millie and
Friends. Good food made the festiv-
ities complete. A grand total of
$5,010 was raised from the dunk
tank, donations and other events.
Merle Phillips, owner of the
Brahma Bull, and Cathye Folsom,
manager of the Brahma Bull,
would like to thank the following
persons, businesses and organiza-
tions for their help in making the
fundraiser such a success:
Main Street members Steve
Cates and Terry Burroughs (They
prepared mouth-watering smoked
pork and chicken. Both of these
gentlemen were at the Brahma Bull
and started cooking on Saturday at
midnight. They both stayed
throughout the benefit the next
day.);
Feather and Fur;
*VFW Post #10539;
Molly Curley, Realtor;
Jones Supply (Jerry and Jo
Jones);
Dee's Garden Shop (Mike and


Dee Stewart);
Todd Raulerson;
Chip Branch;
Sysco Food Corp.;
Bill Mearki and the Depart-
ment of Corrections Probation
and Parole Division;
Angelo and Sandi Pirre;
Jean and Robert Branstettler;
Linda and Russell Papy;
Craig Malone;
SST Custom Fabricators (for
the dunk tank);
Marty and Ursual Spiel-
haupter;
Maureen Burroughs and her
helper, Linda.
Mr. Phillips issued a very special
thank you to the Brahma Bull staff
for donating their time, pay for the
day, and side dishes prepared for
the buffet. They went above and
beyond the call of duty. The Brah-
ma Bull Restaurant was closed for
the day to the general public, in
order to donate the building use to
the benefit. The management apol-
ogizes to anyone who was incon-
venienced by the disruption in serv-
ice.
If any names were forgotten, it
was not intentional. The Brahma
Bull management appreciates the
support and help received from

The Okeechobee News, Sunday, October 16, 2005


Sugar supplies, prices remain stable


Clewiston Although the
2005-2006 harvest season was
delayed several days due to rain,
U.S. Sugar began harvesting sug-
arcane Oct. 14 on its eastern
farms for delivery to the Bryant
Mill. Harvest on the western
farms for delivery to the
Clewiston Mill is scheduled to
begin next week. With the har-
vest season expected to run 172
days, the Company is scheduled
to harvest 168,658 acres, yielding
an estimated 6.3 million tons of
cane. Last year's storm-riddled
season produced 5.9 million tons.
"Although we continue to have
cane damage from the unprece-
dented hurricanes and heavy
rains last season, we had a good
growing season this summer and


are looking forward to a more
normal harvest," said Robert
Coker, senior vice president, pub-
lic affairs of Clewiston, Florida
based U.S. Sugar. "Even as har-
vest and processing begin, con-
struction continues as we expand
and modernize our Clewiston Mill
and Refinery. When completed in
2007, our Clewiston sugar pro-
cessing operations will be among
the largest and most efficient in
the world," Coker stated.
According to Coker, recent free
trade agreements and ongoing
negotiations with additional
sugar-producing foreign coun-
tries mean more foreign sugar
entering the U.S. market. The
increased efficiency of the new
milling operations is aimed at


ensuring that U.S. Sugar is com-
petitive into the future.
At a time when world sugar
prices are at a decade high,
domestic sugar pricesremain sta-
ble. Though the deadly storm sea-
sons of the past two years have
caused significant losses among
Florida and Louisiana sugar pro-
ducers, they have had virtually no
effect on consumer sugar
prices-a fact directly attributable
to U.S. sugar policy, said Coker.
"These natural catastrophes,
combined with increasing U.S.
sugar consumption, could have
led to a real crisis," noted Coker.
"Yet sugar supplies and prices
have remained stable, because
U.S. sugar policy is flexible and
effective. If our nation's oil policy


worked as well as sugar policy
does, we wouldn't see those price
spikes at the gas pump."
Last year, Florida suffered an
unprecedented four hurricanes,
costing the state's sugar grow-
ers-who produce one quarter of
the nation's sugar supply-30
percent of their crops and some
$300 million in lost revenues. This
year, southern Louisiana's sugar-
cane crop was devastated. First
hurt by Katrina, growers were hit
even harder by Rita, which
brought saltwater 15 miles inland
and flooded crops under six feet
of water. The storms could cost
Louisiana sugar producers as
much as three-quarters of their
crop, a loss that could be felt for
years.

sure took a dip, about $4-$5

good and cows to be down for a

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-
ment that is illegal or con-
sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-
ing money ahead of time,
you check with the Better
Business Bureau at
772-878-2010 for previous
complaints.
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, byt occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.
