Seminoles survive
scare from Troy
TALLAHASSEE (AP) (AP)
Bobby Bowden was still a
bit shaky on the morning after
watching his heavily favored
Florida State team pull out a
last-minute victory over Troy
saved, once again, by his
defense.
Career win No. 361 ended
up among his memorable -
for a lot of wrong reasons.
"I could be sitting here
right now with the worst loss
in my life," Bowden said Sun-
day.
Buster Davis' interception
midway through the fourth
quarter set up the go-ahead
score and Geno Hayes' pick
with just over a minute left in
the game sealed a 24-17 licto-
ry Saturday over the more-
Than-a-little-bit troublesome
visitorss from Troy.

on the morning of Sept. 11,
2001.
"His. face just started to
turn red," said Tyler, now 13
and in seventh grade. "I
thought, personally, he had to

OFC presents program


Okeechobee Freshman Cam-
pus has scheduled the highly rated
Making High School Count presen-
tation program for its freshman
class. The one-hour, assembly-
style presentation will be delivered
free to students and parents at 8
a.m. and again at 9 a.m. on Thurs-
day, Sept. 14, in the OFC Auditori-
um.
Making High School Count is
designed to help students under-
stand the importance of high
school and what they need to
accomplish to maximize their
opportunities upon graduation.
The program also addresses transi-
tional issues such as time manage-
ment and study skills.
"Entry into high school and col-
lege are key transition periods in a-
student's academic career," said
J.R. Cifani, vice president of Mon-
ster's Making It Count Programs.
"Our goal is to provide and rein-
force the positive messages and
counselors and teachers are giving
to their students during these cru-
cial times and help students under-
stand that anyone can be success-
ful if they choose to be."
On average, guidance coun-


OFV
MAverkcu
selors rated the value of the ideas
presented a 9.6 on a ten-point
scale. This program, combines
with the success of the organiza-
tion's additional presentations for
juniors and seniors, allowed Mak-
ing it Count to deliver its message
to more than 2.1 million high
school students in 2005. Okee-
chobee Freshman Campus has
hosted this presentation since
2002 and more than 2,500 ninth
grade students have heard the
Making High School Count mes-
sage. More information about the
Making It Count in-school pres-
entation programs can be found

bers are invited to attend one of
