Fla. Citrus to
fill Calif. loss
LAKELAND Despite the
severe freeze that has claimed
the majority of
the California citrus crop,
there still should be enough
fresh citrus on produce
shelves for Americans this
winter and spring. That's
because Florida citrus, which
has suffered its own share of
catastrophic freezes, as well as
hurricanes, in the recent past,
has dodged a bullet this year
and seen its oranges, grape-
fruit and tangerines rebound.

Opal was a wood stop


on the East Coast railroad


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE "Opal
was a stop on the East Coast
Railroad where the old wood-
fired steam engines used to
stop to pick up fuel to continue
their run down to Okee-
chobee," said Sonny
Williamson. "The next stop
north would have been Hilolo,
that's what it was called."
"This, the central road on
Williamson Cattle Company is
also the old Florida East Coast
Railroad right of way grade


water as well as wood. I
remember the water was
brought over in a "pipe" made
of four cypress boards and
when they got wet and the
wood swelled, it was water
tight. I wish we'd saved some
of that old stuff.
"Well, there was a turpen-
tine camp here. The turpentine
company built houses for the
people who worked it. They
brought the people, supplies
wagons and mules down by

where the tracks used to lie.
That's why it sits high.
"I remember sometime in
the 1940s there was a "section
house" for the railroad here.
They were all the same and
one thing about them where
the rafters ended, the ends
were cut decoratively, with a
curve instead of just coming to
a square corner.
"Now there was a "flowing
well" at Opal. A flowing well is
an artesian well that just flows
up and out of the ground all the
time. The trains would need

rail to work the business.
"A lot of industries didn't start
until the railroads came. That
was around 1914. The railroads
made it possible to ship fish, tim-
ber and turpentine, so those
industries developed then.
All of this country had pines,
unlike the north part of Okee-
chobee County where it turns
into prairie.
"If you look hard in through
the palmettos here, you can find
old bricks. The chimneys of these
turpentine houses were always
made of brick and we've found
old bottles and such here.
"The pine trees would be cut,
downwards, lengthwise to
release the pine sap or resin they
made the turpentine from. When
you know what to look for, you
can tell the old trees that had
been cut that way even today.
"They called the place where
they cut the pine tree a "cat face"
because that is what it looked like
- two gashes cut into each other
on an angle. Then, they would fit
metal pieces, like troughs along
the gashes to guide the resin into

road grade.


a metal cup at the bottom. The
workers would go around with a
mule-drawn wagon carrying a 55
gallon drum and empty the cups
of resin into the drum.
"There used to be a county
road that came out here from
town, too. It ran along the rail-
road. People came out from
town and planted citrus groves
here. Judge Henry Hancock first


settled at Opal and he planted a
grove here before he moved in
town to present-day Okee-
chobee where he built his home
on the east side of the old Taylor
Creek, according to Twila Valen-
tine, a local historian who wrote
extensively for the Okeechobee
News. I think the chimney of the
Walker plane is standing.
"The county road came up


from town, ran by the old ceme-
tery, crossed Cemetery Road
then on up here. People came
up here and planted citrus. Peter
Raulerson's trees are still bearing
fruit; tangerines, oranges and
grapefruit all still bearing since
he planted them and we've had
them ourselves for 60 years.
(Peter and Louisiana Raulerson
moved to Okeechobee from
Basinger in 1896.)
In a story in the Okeechobee
News, the late Thelma Holmes
Walker, recalled a picnic out at
Opal one time during an inter-
view by Twila Valetnine.
"There was a Sunday school
picnic out at Opal one time and
there was an orange grove out
there. Merle Lamb was with us.
We had fixed sandwiches and
carried them. We went swim-
ming in our clothes. We didn't
think a thing about taking a
bathing suit because we didn't
know about the pond out there.
It was kind of muddy and I didn't
look so good after. But the
(train) conductor told me I
wouldn't have to walk home
(from the train station) He said
he'd carry us on the train and put
me right off behind my house,"
Thelma said.

Seniors lose dress code privilege at OHS


By Victoria Hannon
Qkeechobee News
The students in the senior class
have lost the privilege of wearing
shorts every day of the week. The
attendance rate has drop to 88.4
percent and this drop has put the
seniors on suspension until they
can raise it back above 90 per-
cent.
As per the promise made to
the senior class in the beginning
of the school year, the seniors at
Okeechobee High School were
allowed to wear shorts anytime
they felt the desire during the sec-
ond semester. The promise,
made by school administration,


stated that if the students could
maintain a 90 percent attendance
rate during the first semester that
they would be allowed to wear
shorts for the remainder of the
year provided that attendance did
not drop below that 90 percent.
During the first semester stu-
dents of the senior class scraped
by with a 90.3 percent attendance
rate, but in the second week of
the second they are already slip-
ping.
"I would like to think that the
students care enough to fix the
attendance problem," said OHS
Dean Gina Davis. "Make up work
is not enough to get them the edu-


cation that they need."
The new opportunity was sug-
gested by OHS' new principal
Toni Weirsma as a way to provide
the senior class with what they
wanted.
"Seniors wanted to wear
shorts," said Ms. Davis. "Mrs.
Weirsma found a way for us to
give that to them."
After the administration
announced their deal with the
senior class, underclassmen
began to ask for a similar privi-
lege. The deal that they struck
states that the underclassmen
could wear shorts if they are capa-
ble of maintaining a 95 percent

Top ten 2007 pro golf deliveries


By Daniel Shube
The Fed-Ex Cup points have
begun to accumulate. There will
be a player on the PGA Tour who
will be $10 million richer. Does
anyone care? Will more top-tier
players play in additional events?
It seems for now that there are
more questions than answers.
For all the cash that Fed-Ex has
forked-up, I'll throw them a bone
and give them some publicity. So,
here are the top ten Fed-Ex deliv-
eries that are anxiously awaited in
professional golf this year:
10. Phil Mickelson: Sanity.
After his U.S. Open meltdown,
Phil needs to get his head togeth-
er.


Fairwaysan :?.i
and
Highways
by Daniel Shube


9. Annika Sorenstam: Youth.
With Lorena Ochoa threatening
to dethrone her as the Queen of
the LPGA, Annika needs to dis-
cover the Fountain of Youth.
8. Michelle Wie: Wisdom. This
is something that usually comes
with age. This youngster has


game, but hopefully will find a
game plan.
7. U. S. Ryder Cup Team:
Teamwork. The Europeans have
it. Why don't we?
6. Vijay Singh: Time. This guy
practices so many hours, there
isn't enough daylight for him.


5. Camilo Villegas: A Role. In
the next Spiderman movie
sequel.
4. Colin Montgomery: A Major.
Even Feci-Ex may not beat the
deadline to deliver this package
for Monty.
3. Tiger Woods: Genes. If his
special delivery takes after Tiger
or Elin the kid should have it
made.
2. Carolyn Bivens: A Chance.
She may be out of luck. Off to a
shaky start, many event sponsors
and players wish they had Ty
Votaw back.
1. Tim Finchem: Success. The
Commish needs help for his Fed-
Ex Cup to succeed.

severe freeze that has claimed the
majority of
the California citrus crop, there
still should be enough fresh citrus
on produce shelves for Americans
this winter and spring. That's
because Florida citrus, which has
suffered its own share of cata-
strophic freezes, as well as hurri-
canes, in the recent past, has
dodged a bullet this year and seen
its oranges, grapefruit and tanger-
ines rebound.
The natural disaster that has
befallen the California crop has
drawn the genuine empathy of
Florida growers.
"Traditionally, Florida is at the
mercy of Mother Nature's freezes
and hurricanes," said Michael W.
Sparks, Executive Vice
President/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "This past year, we've had

ated by the absence of California
citrus."
While more than 90 percent of
Florida's orange crop is harvested
into juice, a similar percentage of
California's oranges are sold as
fresh eating fruit. The 2006-07 Flori-
da crop should help bridge the
gap, according to Sparks, as it is
maturing with excellent quality
and good appearance. Many Flori-
da pineapple oranges, valencias,
temples and honey tangerines still
remain on the trees to be harvest-
ed.
"Americans still will be able to
enjoy their citrus and get their deli-


cious daily snack filled with vitamin
C, folate, potassium and fiber,"
Sparks said.
The Florida citrus industry has a
$9 billion economic impact on the
state, employs nearly 90,000 peo-
ple and covers more than 620,000
acres. The California citrus industry
has a $500 million farm gate value
and covers more than 110,000
acres.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948, is the state's largest citrus
grower's organization with more
than 10,000 grower members. For
more information, please visit

Keep your horse healthy and happy during the winter season


COLLEGE STATION- With icy
temperatures and cold weather
here, you may be wondering if
Old Paint needs any special cold
weather provisions. He just might.
While horses are better suited
to winter than most humans,
there are a few things you can do
to make sure your horse gallops
through the chilly season both
happy and healthy.
In general, a horse's metabolic
needs will go up as temperatures
go down. "For all horses, the ideal
diet will closely mimic a horse's
natural diet in the wild," said Dr.
Peggy Marsh, a veterinarian at the
College of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical Sciences at Texas
A&M University.
"This means that no matter
what the temperature, a horse's
diet should be primarily made up
of forage what the horse can
graze from the pasture or hay,"
Marsh adds. She notes that con-
centrates, such as grain, can be
given to help meet energy require-
ments. Thiis is important if the
horse is being exercised when it is
cold outside.
A supplement can supply vita-
mins and micronutrients that may
be missing from the ration.
For many horses, colder tem-
peratures.can mean less exercise
simply because owners are less

In Florida, horses can withstand our chilly temperatures.

inclined to be outside themselves.
However, every horse in good
health should be given ample
opportunity to keep moving,
Marsh believes.
"Just like cats and dogs, horses
can become frisky in wintertime
and will run and play on their own
when given the freedom to do so,"


said Marsh. As with diet, a horse
should be allowed to follow its
natural behavior tendencies.
Changes in housing are not
usually necessary, Marsh says.
"Horses can withstand cold
temperatures more easily than
when they are combined with
windy and wet conditions. When

Twenty-f6ur years ago, we set out to offer the
kind of hometown banking service people
wanted. We built relationships with our friends
and neighbors, where local bankers have the
flexibility to make the right decisions for their
customers. People like the approach, because
we've grown to provide our hometown service
across Florida. And we're delighted to offer
hometown banking here in Okeechobee County.

winter brings strong, icy winds or
wet ground, it is a good idea to
provide some kind of structure
the horse can be inside of or next
to in order to block itself from the
wind," Marsh confirms.
"Also, be sure to give your
horse plenty of dry ground to pre-
vent the hooves from developing
thrush (a bacterial infection
caused by moisture)."
Contrary to popular opinion, it
is usually not necessary to blanket
your horse in the winter. Marsh
says a horse's coat will adapt to
the colder temperatures, even
standing on end to insulate the
horse with a layer of warm air.
Marsh does recommend, how-
ever, that a horse be blanketed if
its coat is clipped during the win-
ter or as a grooming aid to keep
the coat flat and smooth.
"Most changes in diet, exercise
and housing will depend on the
horse's normal activities," said
Marsh. "For instance, working
horses will have different require-
ments than those used only occa-
sionally for recreation. Also, with
winter's first frost, it may be use-
ful to consider deworming
against bots, a fly larvae parasite."
"As with humans, winter con-
ditions can be more harmful to
very old or very young horses,"
Marsh adds. "You should consult

how to provide the proper diet,

particular horse, no matter what
the age or weather."

Wouldn't it be neat to feel that way about your bank?
Good banking is all about good relationships. And that takes
one-on-one attention, open minds and a willingness to give more
than 100%. II goes way beyond convenient hours (we have them)
and free online banking and bill pay (we have those, too.) It takes
honesty, commitment and good old-fashioned hard work. Just like
a good marriage. Only not as romantic.




Feel good about your bank
