An 18-year-old Okeechobee
man died early Sunday morning
as a result of injuries he received
in an accident on an All Terrain
Vehicle (ATV).
A press release from the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) states that Misael Torres,
N.W. 38th Ave., was operating an
ATV Saturday, Nov. 11, around
11:40 p.m. on the Viking Proper-
ties when he tried riding the ATV
up an embankment. The 2006
Suzuki 400 flipped over backward


and landed on Mr. Torres.
The press release goes on to
say a 17-year-old girl was also on
the four-wheel ATV at the time,
but she was not injured.
OCSO personnel helped the
Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue
Department establish a landing
zone for a helicopter, which then
flew Mr. Torres to Holmes Region-
al Hospital in Melbourne.
Mr. Torres died there around 3
a.m. Sunday, Nov.:12.

Student council members participated in the Flag Raising Ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 9, at
Seminole Elementary School. They carried the flag accompanied by the student council
sponsor Ms. Patricia Kenney. Students participating in the ceremony were: (back row, left to
right), Roman Mattson, Kirsten Doney, Taylor Boyett, Kiylier Baker; and, (front row, left to
-right) Antwonette Scott, Brian Guerrero, Odalis Garcia, and Ezequiel Gomez.


- On Nov. 7, 2006, students at
Seminole Elementary School par-
ticipated in a mock election.
Using an official Seminole Ele-
mentary School ballot at the vot-
ing booth, students cast their
votes for M&Ms, Skittles, or Sweet
(Tarts. The students were able to
make an educated vote because
prior to the Mock Candy Election,
they sampled the candy in their
classes, listened to persuasive
speeches from other students,
observed fellow students lobby
tor their favorites, viewed persua-
sive ads, and after watched a
PowerPoint presentation. After
casting their vote, the students
received an I Voted sticker. This
lesson gave students an insight
into real life practices and real
world experiences.
On Nov. 9, 2006, all SEM stu-
dents and a number of special
guests celebrated Veterans' Day
by participating in a Flag Raising
Ceremony. Pat Kenny, SEM Stu-
dent Council Sponsor, and the.
student council officers and rep-
resentatives presented the Ameri-


can Flag for hoisting and lead the

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Commentswill be published in the newspaper as space permits.
WORKERS: I live in the. city and wonder what these 400 workers
brought in by the proposed concrete plant are going to be doing at night
when their work day is done? Don't let this happen.

DOGS AND CATS: I'm calling in regard to dogs and cats. It seems like
people don't care. They let their dogs and cats run loose and I know that
the dog warden is doing his duty because I've seen him out here my way
a lot of times. How do we go about getting new, stricter laws about dogs
and cats running loose and the owners having their animals spayed a nd
neutered?. (Editor's Note: If you live in thecounty, talk to your county
commissioner. If you live in the city, contact members of the city coun-
cil.) '" .

GAS PRICES: My, wasn't it amazing how Buslh and the Republicans
had the gas prices lowered so the economy would look good just before.
the election? If you notice now, the price has gone back up six cents in
three days. Thanks Republicans.

ELIGION: Would everybody please leave each other alone? When
one religion starts stepping out and telling everybody else what to do, it's
just wrong. We are one nation under God andeveryone together as one. I`
think in Afghanistan'the people who told everyone what to do, what
were they called -the Taliban? '. .

WILDLIFE CENTER: Today I had the pleasure of visiting Arnold's
Wildlife Rehabilitation Center while donating blankets. I was taken on a
tour of the center and they definitely have panthers arid many other ani-
mals. The deer came right up to the fence and nuzzled my hand. The but-
terfly garden, is wonderful and I was very impressed with how clean
everything was. I havelive hereeight years and this was the first time I
visited the center. I will be taking my grandchildren to see it. Many of the
birds came to them after the.hurricanes and they are caring for them. I.
don't know who wrote the Speak Out. putting down Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center but you were wrong and you should really get your
facts straight. If you don't believe rme, take a ride out and visit the Center
yourself. You won't be sorry that you did.

NO CONSEQUENCE: Remember when we all get to the Pearly Gates,
all things that were broken will be fixed. And in the scheme of things, will
it have made any difference in how you lived your life just because the
world has gay people in it? I say this as a parent who has stood at the foot
of her 24-year-old son's grave and asked, why? I was given my answer,
accepted it to be thy will be done and moved forward. I was blessed
with a beautiful grandchild as an extension of my son's life and consid-
ered it a gift from above two months after my son passed away. You then
look at life and the world through a different set of eyes, and don't place
so much emphasis on things that are of no consequence in the long run.

ACCEPFANCE: I say let the kids, gay and straight, have the club. I per-'
sonally think it is a great idea, the acceptance of each as an individual per-
son.- instead of keeping the dosed-minded nonsense such as racism
open and ugly. Teach all to get along together to make this a better planet
on which to live.

CLOSED MINDS: I feel very sad for those of you with such closed.
minds and hearts, especially in this day and age: Just remember, what:
goes around comes around minimum 10-fold. You wish bad things or
say things that intentionally hurt others and it shall come to bite you. If
you go through life with a closed mind, you may not like it when it is done
toyou.

ATTENflON: I hope that all know that there is a difference between
gay and goth. They are not the same thing or even mildly related or asso-
ciated with each other. Only a small percentage are really gay but just
because one says that they are something is just that, looking for atten-
tion. Most of these kids have not experimented with the lifestyle of a gay'
they make the statement to shock others. They do not probably even
know what they want to be when they grow-up. Most gay people know
they are gay. It is not something that you grow into or adopt.

OPEN MINDED: I don't have a problem with people being gay, if that's
their choice of lifestyle. I prefer not to be subjected to it, and that's my
lifestyle choice. One thing I don't have is a closed mind or a one-track
mind. I was taught that homosexuality is wrong, along with inter racial
dating/marriage, etc. I grew up in an all white town and went to an all
white school right in the heart of the Bible belt. I learned from life experi-
ence working with them, being neighbors with them and being rela-
tivs to accept everything that I was taught to be against. I don't have
anything personal against anyone that is a productive member of society
-whether they are gay, a different color or have different religious beliefs. I
do feel strongly that if you don't want to be subjected to something that
you don't believe in you have the right to abstain and keep yourself sepa-
rated from it. If I'm a horrible person for my beliefs, oh well, that's life. I
have been called worse. But narrow minded is not in my persona.

Food safety important during the holiday season


During the holiday season, haz-
ards to food safety may increase as
cooks try new recipes, cook for
larger numbers of people, get dis-
tracted with other holiday plans or
misjudge cooking times.
To help avoid food-related holi-
day problems, the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA) recom-
mends planning ahead. Plan out
the menu -and make a shopping
list. If you are preparing special hol-
iday foods, this will help you
reduce the number of extra trips to
the supermarket. Some \holiday
foods may require ingredients you
do not normally keep on hand.
If you are planning to cook a
turkey, decide if you will buy it fresh
or frozen: A fresh turkey should be


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


cooked within two days of pur-
chase. A frozen turkey can be pur-
chased in advance, but if you are
going to buy a frozen bird make
sure you plan for thawing time.
Never buy a pre-stuffed turkey,
warns the USDA. Bacteria can


grow in the stuffing.
If you buy a frozen turkey, it is
not safe to leave it out at room tem-
perature to thaw. You can thaw a
frozen turkey in the refrigerator or
in water bath.
In the refrigerator, plan for
about 24 .hours of thaw time for
every 5 pounds. An 8- to 10-pound
turkey will thaw in one to two days
in the refrigerator; a 12- to 16-
pound bird will thaw in two to
three days; a 16- to 20-pound
turkey in three to four days; a 20- to
24-pound turkey will thaw in four
to five days.
If you don't have time or
room to thaw a turkey in the
refrigerator, you can. use a cold
water bath. Immerse the turkey -


still wrapped in plastic in cold
water. Change the water every 30
minutes. Cook immediately after
thawing.
An 8- to 12-pound turkey will
take four to six hours to thaw in
cold water; a 12- to 16-pound
turkey will take six to eight hours; a
16- to 20-pound turkey will take 8
to 10 hours; and a 20- to 24-pound
turkey will take 10 to 12 hours.
According to the USDA, you can
also thaw a frozen turkey in a
microwave if the microwave is
large enough. Check the manufac-
turer's instructions to see what size
frozen item your microwave can
safely handle. Cook immediately
after thawing.
Stuffing a turkey can be risky,


since bacteria can grow in the stuff-
ing. If you plan to cook stuffing in
the turkey, don't put the stuffing
into the bird until just before you
place it in the over. Stuffing should
be loosely packed so that it can
heat evenly. Use a recipe for moist -
- not dry stuffing. Heat kills bac-
teria more easily in a moist envi-
ronment.
Many people myself included
- cook stuffing or "dressing" sepa-
rately in a casserole.
Turkey is safe to eat when the
internal temperature is 165
degrees. Use a meat thermometer
to check the thickest part of the
breast.
Cooking times will vary
depending in the size of the turkey


Me 'si piaukillk ArreAia, drai

_____ im.


and what type of oven you use. The
USDA recommends baking a
turkey at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
An 8- to 10-pound turkey takes two
to three hours; a 20- to 25-pound
turkey takes four to five hours.
An old-fashioned way to see if a
turkey is cooked is to "wiggle" the
leg to see if it moves easily. But, use
a meat thermometer to be sure.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medication. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy.")
