EMT solicitation
is telephone scam
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has
recently been notified by area
residents that a group called
Florida EMTs & Paramedics is
soliciting money over the tele-
phone.
This is not a local organiza-
tion, and could possibly be
based in Canada.
Callers are asking for dona-
tions supposedly to be used
for training and equipment.
If contacted by the group,
do not donate money.

'We picked beans all summer long'


By MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida.
PAHOKEE Esther Boyd
Mitchell grew up in a family
who picked beans for a living
every summer. She was born
"during season" in Brevard,
North Carolina where her par-
ents were picking in 1955. She
was one of five children, all
girls, in her family.
"My oldest sister didn't live
with us," said Mrs. Mitchell.
"She was raised by my great
aunt down in Miami.
"We all worked together in
the fields. It wasn't until the
1960s child labor laws come to
be that parents didn't take their
small children to the fields.
After the '60s the little ones

went to a nursery, which in,
North Carolina, was a trailer
and there was someone to
watch them while their parents
worked.
"My dad was a contractor,
really. He'd contract with a
farmer to pick a certain number
of acres of beans. Now, there
were us five girls and my moth-
er and dad and we all picked. I
picked beans every year until I

was in tenth grade. Eventually,
my older sister had six kids and
she and her kids worked along
with us, too.
"I never felt overworked.
There was always a nice cama-
raderie among all of us out in
the field. The money we kids
earned went to buy our clothes
for school and such, so we
knew the value of work. Our
parents instilled that value in us.
By the time I was ten years old I
could pick 20 bushels of beans
a day and ten of them before
lunch.
"I remember the year I was
seven or eight, my dad got sick.
We were on our way to go pick
somewhere. Finally he was so
sick he just couldn't drive any


more. My mother never did
drive. Nearby where we
stopped the car along the road,
there was a place with nice
looking fields and an old house
back a ways with a swept yard.
We told her what happened
and she took all of us in until my
dad was well enough to drive
again. From then on, we always
stopped in to see her every year
until she died. Those are the
things no one talks about. The
good times you had.
"But being a migrant really
changed me. One time I was
picking beans up in North Car-
olina, when I looked down and
there was a huge worm crawl-
ing up my chest. I screamed for
my daddy. He came and he
said, 'Honey, that's just an old
worm!'
Well that was the day I said
to myself, 'When I grow up, I
will not be working in the hot
sun picking beans. I will have
an education and I will work in
air conditioning!' And that is
what I did.
"All of us girls went to col-
lege. All of us but one (my old-

"School here and there was
never an issue, since we came
home to Pahokee around Labor
Day every year, so we always
went to school here in Pahokee.
That's where all our friends were.
My dad was a long distance truck-
er when we were living in Paho-
kee.
"My mother worked at a farm
here in Pahokee, Vandergrift and
Williams it was. Then by the time


we went to high school, she did-
n't work at all, she was home all
the time. My mother came to live
with me and she lived with me
eight years until she passed away.
She and I looked just alike. Maybe
that's. why she lived with me, you
know!
"Even though I said I'd never
work in a bean field again, one
time in the 1980s I went out to a
U-pick and picked beans again,
just to see if I still had it in me,"
she recalled.
Mrs. Mitchell now teaches Lan-
guage Arts at Pahokee Middle
High School.

A change in tradition at OHS


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
This year Okeechobee High
School's homecoming week has
been planed a little differently than
it usually is. The Homecoming
Dance, usually held at the end to
cap off the week, has been moved
to the beginning of the week.
This change is brought on after
two conflicting events were sched-
uled for the same night that the
dance would have fallen on, Oct.
28. One activity that will take place
that night is that OHS will be host-
ing a Florida Bandmasters Associa-
tion Competition with other high


school marching bands form the
area.
"We wanted to
try something
new," according
to OHS Vice- ,'
Principal
Debbie Gillis.
"This shouldn't affect the rest of
the week and we wouldn't have
been able to handle all three activi-
ties at once, so this was our solu-
tion."
The dance, which is scheduled
for the night of Oct. 21, will be held
in the OHS cafeteria and courtyard
jointly. The theme for this year's
homecoming is "Brahmans
around the world."


The dance, as well as the rest of
homecoming week is sponsored
by the OHS student council. They
plan most of the activities and dec-
orate in preparation for the cele-
bratory events. They also fund the
games that take place during the
week and kick in to pay for some
of the less expensive facets of the
parade.
"I think that it's great that they
changed the dance around," said
Amy Lamberti, president of OHS
student council. "It will give
everyone more of an opportunity
to get to know the homecoming
court so they know who they are
voting for."


OHS varsity captain to attend London


^SiS\.~~~~ ii Z^j &S



Okeechobee News/Victoria Hannon
Senior varsity cheerleader,
Dominique Alderman, will be
headed to London during the
winter break to attend the All-
star Cheerleading Camp.


Okeechobee High School sen-
ior Dominique Alderman has been
presented with the opportunity to
attend the Allstar Cheerleading
Camp in London over her winter
break. To help defray the cost of the
trip, her family will be selling din-
ners.
Last June the OHS cheerleaders
attended a cheerleading camp
hosted by Universal Cheerleading
Association. On the final day of
camp try-outs were held to
become an Allstar cheerleader. This
try-out was made up of a jump, a
dance, and a cheer.
"I was overwhelmed with joy,"
said Miss. Alderman. "I practiced
the dance, cheer, and jump very
hard and was so happy to hear my
named called as an Allstar Cheer-
leader."
The trip will be taking place Dec.
26 Jan. 2.During the week the
cheerleaders will take a number of


tours through England's capital and
have opportunities to see the sights.
The highlight of the trip will be the
performance of the cheerleaders
on Jan. 1 in London's annual New
Year's Parade.
"The trip alone will cost $2,500,"
Said Miss. Alderman. "That cost
includes air fare, hotel and two
meals a day, but then Allstar .also
recommends that participants have
$100 a day for spending money and
other expenses." The price also
excludes the price of travel to the
pre-approved airport.
To alleviate the expense of the
trip, the Alderman family will be
selling BBQ dinners for $7 a piece
on Oct. 7. The dinners will be made
up of either ribs or chicken and an
option of various side dishes. The
family invites the community to
come and enjoy a good home
cooked meal.
"My parents, Carlton and Verna


This does not affect the rest of
the normal plans. Wood-haling
will be held on Oct. 26, followed
by the annual bond fire. Kick-off
the next night will be preceded by
the Homecoming parade.
The game will be against Mart-
ian County High. "Players wont
be as involved this year in the
homecoming week activities as
they were last year," said Coach
Chris Branham. "I think I was a lit-
tle too lax last year. I have already
told the seniors that they aren't
going to do wood haling. I don't
,want them in that hot sun for ten
hours and then at the bonfire all
night before the game."

cheer camp
Alderman," said Miss Alderman.
"As well as the rest of my family
were very proud of me and really
want me to experience London
while I am young and able."
As a student at OHS, Miss Alder-
man is captain of the varsity cheer-
leaders at OHS and senior class
Vice-President. She is also an active
member in the OHS chapter of the
National Honor Society and a
member of the OHS Principal's
Advisory Council.
"I know that this is the trip of a
lifetime," said Miss Alderman. "This
might be my last year cheerleading
and I feel like this is a reward trip to
reward me for all of my hard work
in school and throughout the com-
munity. I have always wanted to
travel the world and never dreamed
that I would get to start so early."

dinners call (863) 357-0087

EMAIL COMMENTS: I was wondering if we can email comments to
Speak Out? Editor's note: Yes! You can email comments for Speak Out
to okeenews@newszap.com. Or go online and post your comments
in our public forums at www.newszap.com.

SEXUAL OFFENDERS: I see the county is considering an ordinance
to prohibit group homes for sexual offenders in the county. I agree that
is a good idea. We don't need other counties dumping their sexual
offenders on Okeechobee. We already have more than our share and
most of them were not originally from Okeechobee. However, I think
the county needs to take this ordinance idea a step further and set
some limits on where any sexual offenders may live. They should not
be allowed to live within a mile of a school, church, playground, day-
care center or recreation area. That is, they should not be allowed to
live within walking distance of any place that children gather. Kids
should be able to walk to school or to the playground without having
to pass the house of a sexual predator.

SEND THEM TO LAKE WORTH: I read about this minister from
Lake Worth who is setting up these houses for groups of sexual offend-
ers. I am wondering if this is such a wonderful idea, why isn't he put-
ting them in his own neighborhood. Why aren't they in Lake Worth?
Why is he shipping them to Okeechobee? If he thinks this is such a
wonderful program, he should put them next door to his own home.

ATVS: I think the state is just asking for trouble by making it legal for
ATVs to be ridden on unpaved roads. I realize the law says that only
licensed drivers may operate ATVs on the roadway, but who is going to
enforce that? We don't have enough cops to enforce the law as it is.
How are they going to police the unpaved roads to keep the kids on
the ATVs under control?

ALTERNATE ROUTE: If I am reading your coverage of the county
commission meeting correctly, the county is considering extending
Southwest 48th Street to connect to State Road 78. That is not a bad
idea, in my opinion. Not only would it cut down on some of the traffic
that has to go through town to get to the lake, but it would also provide
another route for evacuation traffic. And if it means that the shell trucks
would not have to use SW 67 Street, which is a residential area, so
much the better. We really don't need those shell trucks running
through residential neighborhoods. I know the shell pit was there first,
but the owner of the shell pit sold the land for the residential housing.
So some responsibility must be taken for the current situation.

ROANOKE, Va. The Center for
Civil War Living History has put itself
out of business, distributing two
final grants from a $500,000 fund for
preservation of battlefields and
other historic sites.
The center's treasurer, Chris
Caveness, announced last week
that the center had disbursed all of
the money from a fund donated by
media mogul Ted Turner. Caveness,
an avid Civil War re-enactor, helped
negotiate the deal with Ted Turner
Productions that led to the Roanoke
center's creation five years ago.
Turner's donation was in return
for re-enactors' organizations pro-
viding some 4,000 extras for the
huge battle scenes in "Gods and
Generals," his film based on the
novel depicting the Civil War up to


the Battle of Gettysburg.
The center has given money to
preservation efforts at eight loca-
tions in Virginia, North Carolina,
Georgia and Kentucky. All required
matching donations from other
sources.
The last two grants were $64,000
to buy land or easements for battle-
fields at Cross Keys and Port Repub-
lic in the Shenandoah Valley and
nearly $35,000 to the Jubal A. Early
Preservation Trust to aid in restora-
tion of the Confederate general's
Franklin County home.
In helping groups acquire land
for preservation, "we tied strings to
the property so re-enactors would
be able to do Civil War living history
exhibits, setting up camps the way
the soldiers lived and doing re-


enactments" of battles, Caveness
said.
A large re-enactment that
charges admission for spectators is
lucky to make a couple of thousand
dollars, Caveness said.
"This allows us to pursue our
hobby in a more professional way
with land we've bought," he said.
The center's largest grant was
$122,500 to purchase land at the
McDowell battlefield site in High-
land County. The battle was the site
of Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jack-
son's first significant victory as an
independent commander in the
1862 valley campaign, Caveness
said.
"It's one re-enactors really like,"
he said. "It's way out there, like
being in a time tunnel."

Next month one player on the
LPGA Tour will leave the ADT
championship at Trump Interna-
tional Golf Club in West Palm
Beach with a cool million dollars.
A new playoff system is in place
and Annika Sorenstam is set to
defend.
Winners of major events on
the 2006 LPGA Tour schedule
automatically secure a spot for
the Nov. 16-19 event. The
remaining Tour members finish-,
Sin the top-20 (including ties)
receive double points toward the
race to secure one of 14 open
spots in the first half of the sea-
son.
The ADT Championship will
be played in the following format
(a sudden-de'ath playoff will be
used at the end of each round in
the event of a tie): the first cut
will be after 36 holes to 16 play-
ers; the second cut will be after
54 holes to eight players (scores
are cumulative through 54
holes). The final round will be
played in four groups of two,
with all players starting with a
fresh scorecard. Whoever shoots
the lowest score in the final
round will win the ADT Champi-
onship and $1 million.
This week, Sorenstam was
talking about the event, and
here's what she had to say about
the Championship," I am very
excited to be the defending
champion. It is such a big event,
and as you all know this year, the
format is a little different, and I
think we are all looking forward
to a change, and quite a change,
I would say. You know, a play-off
first of its kind in this type of
event. So I am excited. Florida
has been very good to, me, the
ADT Championship has been
very good to me, and the way
this season has been, it looks
like, you know, the ADT Champi-
onship is going to be the decider
of a lot of things we are talking
Money Lists and we are talking
Player of the Year so I think it
is going to be definitely a show-
down."
When asked about the year
she is having, Sorenstam
responded, "Well, for me, obvi-
ously, I like the way it has been
the last few years. But you know,
it has been kind of a different
year for me; it has been an up
and down season. You know, I
have had some great tourna-
ments; I've had some less good
tournaments. I have had a
chance to win Player of the Year
a few times and I think even
Money List."
Sorenstam was asked about
the competition and here's what
she said," There is no doubt that
the competition is getting better
and there is no doubt that the


pI4'4I[SIDERATOh6YI4


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube

players are just playing better. I
mean, let us take Lorena
(Ochoa) as example. I think she
is having a fantastic year. I mean,
she has won more tournaments
this year than ever, and she is as
consistent as anybody can be.
You know, she is finishing in the
top ten pretty much every week,
and that shows that she has
worked hard and it is obviously
paying off. And Karri Webb is
coming back on the scene, win-
ning the first major, and now she
has just won her fourth event,
and I am sure she is very happy
to be back. And you have Se Ri
(Pak) coming back. So you are
seeing all these I mean,, you
cannot really say veterans
because they are hardly 30 years
old, but they have been around a
little bit but you are seeing them
resurfacing and doing some
great stuff again. I think it is great
for the tour, and I mean, as a
player that has been around, I
love that. I mean, I have always
had a lot of respect for Karri and
a lot of respect for Se Ri, and so I
think it is a good time for the
LPGA. The younger generation,
the teenagers... are some great
players, and I think the tour is in
as good hands as it has ever
been. And so it is a fun time, it
really is, the competition level is
so much higher now. The golf is
getting better, the players are get-
ting better it is fun."
Annika Sorenstam is not
ready to turn over the reigns of
the LPGA Tour to the youngsters
just yet. Take this opportunity to
watch her do battle at Trump
International next month!

every state and Canada bring live-
stock to compete in one of nine
expo divisions: dairy cattle, dairy
goats, Boer goats, beef cattle, quar-
ter horses, draft horses, sheep,
swine, and llamas. More than
225,000 American and foreign visi-

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, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area; use caution.

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.

How are we doing?

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

Udder Bunch attend convention
The Udder Bunch 4-H club sent four student representatives to compete at the Nation-
al Holstein Convention in Sioux Falls, S.D. last June. Team members were (in no par-
ticular order) Kelly Buchanan, Jamie Burnham, Austin Pluskot and Lindsey Rucks.
They were joined by another Florida student, Chanse Huggins of Plant City (rear,
right). The team was undefeated and in second place in the junior division going into
the final round of competition. It was a close battle going into overtime, but was
defeated by just a few points. Lindsey Rucks placed second in the written test part of
the competition. To prepare for the contest, team members have to be up-to-date on
current events of the dairy industry, important people and outstanding dairy cows and
bulls from all over the United States.
