FFA character: YMS students learn Iea.mwork


:`tcechobee News/Pete Gawde
In an exercise to teach teamwork and communications, students at Yearling Middle
School try to cross a hot chocolate river by stepping on marshmallows (paper plates)
Any paper plates not occupied by a student was eaten up by a marshmallow alligator
(teacher). The purpose of the exercise was to teach the students to work together to get
their entire team safely across the river. If anyone stepped into the "water;' the entire
team had to start over. The exercise was part of a program put on at the school on Tues-
day, Nov. 14 by state officers of the Future Farmers of America.


. :. .


State Future Farmers of America (FFA) officers presented a program at Yearling Middle
School on Tuesday Nov. 14 to educate students about FFA and to teach teamwork, com-
munications and character. Ashley Young, area six vice president, left, and Sarah
Burleson, state FFA president, addressed the students. In addition to feedback from the
students, the program had hands on exercises to get the point across in a fun way.

Seminoles to build charter school


BRIGHTON SEMINOLE
RESERVATION The Seminole
Tribe of Florida and the School
Board of Glades County, Florida
have approved the only charter
school in the State of Florida to
foster the development and reten-
tion of the Seminole Creek culture
and language. Pemayetv Emahakv
or "Our Way School" will open
August 2007 in newly constructed
facilities on the Brighton Seminole
Reservation in Glades County.
Ground breaking for the new
charter school will take place at 11
a.m. Friday, Nov. 17, adjacent to
the Rodeo Grounds located on the
Brighton Seminole Reservation
(off CR 721 in Glades County).
* Pemayetv Emahakv will con-
sist of four educational buildings
surrounding a courtyard and out-
door learning area. The new char-
tercsqhool facility will include
aMissrooms, cultural learning
rooqs, media center and adminis-
fr native offices. ,
Pemayetv Emahakv is
designed as a partial immersion
language school. Traditional core
content subjects will be taught in
English but some content includ-


ing history, art, music, etc. will be
taught using the Creek language.
Because Creek is a spoken lan-
guage, the only way to transfer the
language from generation to gen-
eration is through oral context and
instruction Therefore, Pemayetv
Emahakv, "Our Way School" will
become a critically important cen-
ter for the Seminole Tribe of Flori-
da as it devotes substantial
resources to maintain its language
and culture for future generations.
During its deliberation and
subsequent unanimous board
.approval, Glades County School
Board Chairman Mike Pressley
stated the School District is
pleased that its first experience
with a charter school has been
with an applicant whose mission
is critically important to the con-
tinuation of the Seminole Tribe's
culture and language. Glades
Superintendent, Wayne Aldrich
states "I -am really excited about
being involved with the very first
charter school that combines a
wonderful Seminole Creek lan-
guage and culture with a tradition-
al academic curriculum. There is
no better way to keep the Semi-


nole's rich and powerful culture
and language alive than through
the proposed immersion program
which will include direct instruc-
tion and meaningful activities in
the everyday curriculum. I hope
that other Native American com-
munities will follow the lead that
has been set forth by the Seminole
Tribe at the Brighton Reserva-
tion."
Andrew Bowers, Tribal Council
Representative for the Brighton
Seminole Indian Reservation,
home of the new charter school,
supports the school and its con-
cept.
"Pemayetv Emahakv will
enable reservation residents and
area tribal members to take
advantage of the unique combina-
tion of traditional public educa-
tion based on State Standards plus
a curriculum supporting the
teaching of the Seminole's Creek
language and culture," he stated.
Mike Strader, President of Char-
ter School Associates, Inc., a con-
sultant to the Seminole Tribe,.
states that Pemayetv Emahakv will
include state-of-the-art technology
plus an elegant and efficient build-


Plant


ing design to promote cultural
identity and learning.
Louise Gopher, the Seminole's
Director of Education., tells inter-
ested parents that the school's
mission is to offer a performance-
based system of teaching and
learning in a safe and nurturing
environment that celebrates the
unique history, culture and lan-
guage of the Seminole people.
Mitchell Cypress, Chairman of
the Seminole Tribal Council,
believes that the successful future
of any great people is directly
dependent upon the care, nurtur-
ing and training of that people's
children. He believes Pemayetv
Emahakv will ensure that Semi-
nole cultural traditions and lan-
guage are properly transmitted
across generations and communi-
ties.

Ms. Harrison then returned to

According to Detective Faulkn-

students with disabilities to learn
the skills they need and the
resources available to them to
achieve their goals after gradua-

4 OPINION


Speak Out


LeLLeus to the Editor


Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at httpA/www.newszapforums
.com/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our Speak i
Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or send-
ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
CLAIMS: When someone claims they are gay it is a lie straight from
hell that has attached itself to a person's soul. I can only pray that these
people will someday soon experience a miracle from God so that their
soul may rest peacefully. If the problem is attention that these people
want then they are still sinners. We were not put on this earth to make
ourselves happy but to live for Christ and make others happy. So to the
gays, stop worrying about yourselves and stop trying to get everything
you want such as attention and publicity. And start making other people
happy. Hide yourselves from our children, from the public and from the
rest of the world.

TOLERANCE: Why do people who are in the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes need to have a club? Kids don't need a club for that. That can be
said about any club. I don't see anything wrong in promoting tolerance
and acceptance of people different than you, especially in today's society
where gays are often demonized and ridiculed. You don't even have to
look far to find it. Where someone said that gay people are being gay to
get attention who would want that kind of attention? They then
implored them to make everyone happy by "hiding from the rest of the
world." What does that say about society when this kind of hate speech is
seen as the norm? While young people reaching out in an act of toler-
ance is seen as radical? It doesn't say anything good.

TEEN PREGNANCY: Why would teens have a problem having babies
when they still live at home and their parents support them and they get
government help and they go to school on the bus with car seats provid-
ed for them and a separate bus to take the babies to daycares while they
go to school? Some of them have more than one child and they are still in
school. Where does it all end? I, for one, don't like taxpayers having to
pay for it when most families have a hard enough time supporting them-
selves. If you're going to play, pay for it yourself and quit being a burden
on other people. It's just not the high school there are girls in the lower
grades, too. They don't even have a clue to what life brings. It's a sad situ-
ation, and these are our future leaders.
SUPPORT: It is sad that babies are having babies. I get tired of having
to hand out the money I have worked hard for to support those who get
themselves in the position of having a baby. I do not mind helping those
that try to help themselves. It is said he helps those who help themselves.
If you are not willing to educate and arm yourself against sexually trans-
mitted diseases or pregnancy, you bear the costyourself.
RESPONSIBILITY: My daughters always knew that mom loved them
unconditionally. But, it was also known that if you get pregnant by stupid-
ity then you were going to be responsible for the product. It's not that I
did not love them or the child, but this was their conscious decision to
have the relations to get pregnant. At a certain age you know right from
wrong. I would not turn them away from the door, but they would have
to get the job to feed and figure out a babysitter. It was the responsibility
of both of those kids.

CONCRETE HOMES: This is in response to the Speak Out caller who
called the proposed housing project by Royal Concrete a labor camp.
Have you seen an all-concrete home? If not, go to Palm Village Ranch
Mobile Home Park and look at one. They are beautiful and certainly not
in the/ labor camp class. I think this is a good thing for Okeechobee.
Everyone has been complaining about having more rental properties
and now someone is offering a solution.
CLUBS: I went to high school in Fort Pierce and we didn't have any
gay-straight clubs in our school and we did just fine So take this from the
older people, kids, you don't need clubs like that. Yot will ball right just
onyour own. .

PLEASED: This is regarding the Gay Straight Alliance. I can't tell you
how pleased I was to see the students finally voice their opinion. Maybe
we can all just back off and let the students resolve this themselves. They
seem to knowwhat they are doing.

TREND: I'm calling about the issue about the gay-straight club the
school denied. I am a mother here in Okeechobee and. I believe that
being gay goes against what the Bible teaches us and therefore we par-:
ents keep in mind that our country is founded on God should not
have to worry about our kids going to school and having gay children try-
ing to set a trend in school. Heaven forbid our kids were to follow and
think that it's OK to be gay because it is not OK to be.gay. It goes against
God.

OLD TRADITIONS: I'd like to comment on the current gay phenome-
non in Okeechobee. AIDS is running rampant. These kids need to be
taught about AIDS in high school and abstinence and going back to the
old traditions. You meet the right one, both get tested, get married and
then you have sex. These kids that are calling in saying they are bi and gay
shouldn't be having sex.

No help
I am just appalled at the dead
ends my friend is running into try-
ing to get a veterinarian in this
town to take care of her dog who
has broken his leg.
The dog was taken into the
emergency veterinary clinic; they
wrapped the leg and told her it
was going to be $850 to repair the
leg. She offered to make pay-
ments but they refused to do that.
She then called her own veteri-


narian who told her to pick up the
x-rays and he would take a look.
The emergency clinic would not
give her the x-rays until she paid
the $300 she owed them.
Her veterinarian looked at the
dog and told her he did not do
that kind of surgery.
She has called every veterinari-
an in this town trying to get help. I
guess these caring veterinarians
don't care enough to take this dog
in and help it.
She got involved with the Vero

Humane Center who tried to help
with no avail. Although they did
tell her to take her dog back to her
veterinarian to get the leg
rewrapped and they would pay
for it.
As she was in there with the
dog she heard the veterinarian,
thinking he was out of earshot,
say "if she thinks I am going to
treat this dog and wait to be paid
she is out of her mind."
Nice this from a veterinari-
an she has been seeing for 10


years.
She is not refusing to pay she
just can't come up with the
money all at once. In the mean-
time, the dog has been suffering
for almost two weeks.
Thanks Okeechobee veterinar-
ians for your compassion, caring
and helping ways.
I think from now on my dogs
will go over to the coast for their
care.

Central Elementary is growing a beautiful garden


Kindergarten
Kindergarten has a beautiful
garden full of tomatoes, cab-
bage, black-eyed peas, corn,
cucumbers, turnips, and green
beans. Mrs. Tillis' class has been
working hard to keep the grass
and weeds out of the garden.
Other classes will be helping
beginning next week. We are
hoping to eat our vegetables at
our annual kindergarten feast at
the end of this month.
The children have also been
working very hard on numbers;
counting objects in groups and
writing numbers 0-10. We also
added the word "fewer" to our
vocabulary and use it whenever
we talk about having less
objects. We like counting to find
the group with more, fewer, or
an equal number
The Kindergarten B.A.S.E.
classes are learning about the
first Thanksgiving. Since we are
also studying the letter li, we
have worked with Indian activi-
ties. We are also making books
about all the things we are thank-
ful for. Our character counts pil-
lar is Caring and we are learning
how to show we care and to say,
"Thank you" for all the things we
have.
We are excited about learning
how the Pilgrims lived and how
the Indians helped them.
Our Kindergarten Feast is
another way we learn to care
about others and learn to work
together. We are looking forward
to sharing each class contribu-
tion. We can hardly wait for the
turkey!
Third Grade
Third graders in Ms. Enfin-
ger's class are busy as butterflies.
As a matter of fact, students
hatched five chrysalises and
released five beautiful butterflies.
They are reading up a storm! Stu-
dents are also testing their multi-
plication facts. So, don't for get to
review them every night. Wel-
come to our new student, Trisha
and we hope you enjoy being in
our class as much as we enjoy
having you. Congratulations to
Chris Garcia, our Employee of
the year and Blake Campbell and
Heaven Peacock our students of
the week. Don't forget to read.
Jennifer Lopez's class is trying
to adjust to the changes now that
we have combined into one, but
the children seem to be getting
bsed to it. We have learned about
the Eastern. Hem.iAeire and
how energy works. We are work-
ing on our multiplication facts
and on elapsed time. Congratula-
tions to our students of the week:
Justin, Denisuk, Wyatt Bessen-
bacher, Ricardo Rodriguez, and
Rumor Juarez.
The students in Ms. Luchetta's
class are enjoying all the new
facts they are learning. The read-
ing theme shows how friends
can grow and help each other.
The students are still continuing
their writing process. Last week
they finished a book about the
states of matter; and this week
we are starting a book about
physical changes. The students
are doing experiments to show
mixtures, solutions, and chemi-
cal changes during science labs.
In social studies we are focusing
on government and Florida.
Math continues its quest for the
students to learn their multiplica-

Coalition presents
drug, alcohol
abuse program

The Okeechobee Substance
Coalition as part of Red Ribbon
Week gave a presentation at Eck-
erd Youth Intensive Halfway
House to raise awareness of the
negative effectsof drug and alco-
hol use.
On Tuesday, Oct. 24th, Kelly
Tarr a member of the coalition
talked to the youth about Kiki
Camarena, a DEA agent who
was murdered by drug traffick-
ers and how it initiated the tradi-
tion of displaying red ribbons as
a symbol of intolerance towards
the use of drugs.
After the presentation, the
youths participated in outside
activities such as walking around
cones, throwing a football
through a hoop and picking up a
ball while wearing Fatal Vision
Goggles. The goggles have spe-
cially cut lenses that distort visu-
al perception. When wearing
them, a person sees things in a
distorted view-as if they were


tion facts. Parents, please work
with your child on the multiplica-
tion!
Fifth Grade
Mrs. Steiert is so proud of her
class! They have earned over 900'
Accelerated Reader points this;
year! WOW! That's a new record
for Mrs. Steiert's class.
Mrs. Steiert's students also
recently started the 100 Book
Challenge and are
reading more than ever. They
are truly motivated students and
eager learners. Congratulations
to Collin Henderson for earning
his first two steps by the end of
the first four days of the program.!
Mrs. Steiert's class recently
wrapped up their study of matter
and has begun to learn about
energy this nine weeks. They are
enjoying the hands-on investiga-
tions that reinforce the concepts
they have learned in class.
Mrs. Steiert's students are also
really taking off in the Math
Superstars program. Nicholas
Kielbasa has earned the top
number of points at 101. Ryan
Reister has earned 77 points. Ben
Lightsey, Rebekah Bennett,
Kaylie Arnold, Joey Bunker, and
Chelsea Wharin have all earned
51 points. Cornesha Jarvis, Louie
Perdomo, Marsheka Pryor, Wes-
ley White, Samuel Rogers,
Mitchell McCoin, Dezirae Fonse-
ca, and Daniel Skinner have all
earned 38 points. Ashalee
Dreher, Collin Henderson, and
Maria Jaimes have earned 25
points. Karla Jimenez, Patricia
Sanchez, and Armand Crowell
have all reached the 15-point
mark. Way to go, class!
Mrs. Steiert's Students of the
Week have been Patricia
Sanchez and Chelsea Wharin.
Readers of the Week have been
Kaylie Arnold and Collin Hender-
son. Way to read, students!
In Ms. M Cowden's class, we
have been learning about the
Thanksgiving Story. We also have
continued to or k ,or our Per2
sonal Narratie Sitoies. The stu-
dents have truly enjoyed being
able to tell events that have hap-


opened to them though their writ-
ing. We also made Acrostic
Poems using our names and
adjectives that describe us. We
have begun reading Dear Mr.
Henshaw and the students love
the humor that Beverly Cleary
uses in describing events. Our
students of the week have been
Mikael Beloff and Jennifer Baker.
These students have demonstrat-
ed responsibility and leadership
in our classroom. We have
wished "Happy Birthday" to
Savanna Shelby, Teagan Mullins,
and Kevin Ottiwell, who have a
November Birthday!
In fifth Grade BASE we are
working hard as always. In math,
we are working on reading and
understanding graphs. Our com-
prehension skills are sharpening
with every story we read and
test. We have just begun our 100-
book challenge and are working
hard to get our steps. We want to
catch up with the others. In sci-
ence, we will be learning about


energy and how it affects our
lives. The Revolutionary War was
an eye opener for some of our
students who have come to the
conclusion that we need to take
care of what our forefathers
fought so hard to obtain. We had
our behavior trip to Dairy Queen
and had a good time. Thanks
Dairy Queen for having us. The
next day we enjoyed lunch at
Golden Corral for reaching our
AR goals. Yum, Yum. Thanks
again to Golden Corral and the
waitresses who served us. We
are working hard on our next
nine weeks commitment. We all
want to enjoy another trip to a
local restaurant. Our students of
the week for November so far
have been Thaddricka Sanders
and Tiffany Bowers. Way to go
girls! Our only November birth-
day is Sheynon Hernandez-Walls.
Happy Birthday Sheynon! Ethan
Parriott is still our Accelerated
*Reader point leader in fifth grade.
Keep reading Ethan!

In this age of exploitive and trashy media, we're proud to
be different. We believe in operating and publishing our
newspaper as a public trust.

Fulfilling our public trust requires that we try to bring out
the best in our community and its people. We seek the
highest common denominators, not the lowest. We don't
engage in gutter journalism. We know we can achieve suc-
cess on the high road.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or call-

Spotlight on Okeechobee


Cancer Society to host Cattle Baron's Ball


Red Ribbon week
a huge success!
"County Wide Red Ribbon
Week," Oct. 23-31, sponsored
by the Okeechobee Substance
Abuse Coalition, was a huge
success!
Red Ribbon Week began
with a Proclamation by Sheriff
Paul May on Monday, Oct. 23, at
the old Court House. Other
events throughout the week
included: Distribution of Red
Ribbon Week bracelets, stick-
ers, and flyers to public and pri-
vate schools, Eckerd Youth
Halfway House
presentation/fatal vision events,
Arc Celebration, Sheriff's Drug
K-9 Unit presentations at the
Okeechobee Nursing Rehabili-
tation Center and the Okee-
chobee Senior Center, the Har-
vest Celebration, and 100 per
cent Me Drug-Free pledge
boards at Winn-Dixie. The
week long events concluded
with a Red Ribbon Fatal Vision
activity booth and candy give
away at the Main Street Festival.
The booth was done in con-
junction with the Community
Traffic Safety Team.
The Okeechobee Substance
Abuse Coalition would like to


thank the following partners
and contributors for their time
and donations:
CobTown Graphics, North
Park Tire Center, Sheriff Paul
May, WOKC 1570 AM, Valerie
and Steve Marone, Mary and
Willie Johns, Okeechobee Dis-
count Drugs, Grace Christian
School, Okeechobee School
Board, Chamber of Commerce,
Jim and Sue Vensel, Katherine
Williams, Mary and Jim Lewis,
Your Home Town Directory,
Barbara Godejohn, Christina
Santibarel, Charlene Laughlin,
Seacoast Bank, Winn-Dixie, U-
Save, S.S. Towers, Main Street,

Harwas, Walgreens, SaraJo
Karns, Linda Rickards, Colleen

chobee Sheriff's Dept. K-9 Unit.
The Coalition would also
like to thank the many, many
businesses around town that
displayed Red Ribbons and
posters at their locations and
the whole community for sup-
porting our vision of eliminat-
ing substance abuse in Okee-
chobee County!


Okeechobee put on your
cowboy boots and hat, saddle
up and get ready to lasso up a
good time for a great cause! The
Okeechobee Chapter of the
American Cancer Society will
host the Second Annual Cattle
Baron's Ball Saturday, March 3,
2007, at Quail Creek Plantation.
The event will boast dinner,
gaming, dancing, live band,
silent and live auctions.
In 1973, the first Cattle
Baron's Ball was held at the
Toddie Lee Wynne Ranch in
Kaufman, Texas, to benefit the
American Cancer Society. And
since Texans do everything big,
it eventually became "The"
event to attend, raising over one
million dollars each year. The
Cattle Baron's Ball was even
used as a gala that "J.R. Ewing"
and other cast members attend-
ed in the very popular evening
soap opera, "Dallas"
Thirty-two years and many
states later, the tradition contin-
ues in our backyard. Cattle
Baron's was first brought to
Florida in 1995 as the Cowford
Ball in Jacksonville. The next
Cattle Baron's was held in
Tampa in 1998, with Orlando
starting their event in 1999. Now
across Florida the American
Cancer Society hosts more then
26 Cattle Baron's Balls. Cattle

is continuing to grow. Yeehaw! Cowboys" and know that with in the fight against cancer by
Texans aren't the only ones the help of our wonderful vol- making this a tradition in Okee-
whom can do things big! We unteers and community sup- chobee!!!

Christmas is always a special
time for children. Some local
youths are preparing for Christ-
mas by giving to Hospice of
Okeechobee. Linda Schneider's

mas trees using their own


unique items. Madison, 5, calls
her tree "Grandma's Jewelry
Box". "Disney Delight" is the
theme of Morgan's tree who is 8
years old. Brother, Timothy
Michael, 6, named his tree
"Build A Bear". All of the trees


will be displayed at this year's
Festival of Trees. Hospice of
Okeechobee would like to thank
the following businesses and
individuals for their donations to
this year's festival: Delores
