20th Annual Cracker Trail Ride moves east


By MaiyAnn Morris

The Cracker trail ride doesn't
involve leaving a trail of crumbs
as you go along, but rather fol-
lowing the trail of Florida's histo-
ry. For Florida had cowboys and
cattle established when the
American West was just being
settled. Florida's enterprising
wranglers took advantage wild
cattle roaming on the prairies of
Central Florida, descendents of
cattle brought by Spanish
explorers in the 1500s.
Florida's wranglers were
called "cow hunters" rather
than cowboys, since Florida's
early cattle had to be found in
the palmetto-covered flat land
before they could be rounded
up and driven to the markets on
the coast.
The Florida Cracker Trail is


the route that commemorates
this ride made by cow hunters
driving Florida's wild cattle to
market across the state in the
1800s. Stretching from Braden-
ton on the west coast to Fort
Pierce 'on the east, the 120-mile
ride is broken into one-day rides
of about 20 miles.
Celebrating the 20 year re-
enactment of the ride home
after selling, the wild cattle, the
Cracker Trail Association, along
with Florida cracker historians
like Indiantown native and
Woman of the Year in Agricul-
ture, Iris Wall and Judge Nelson
Bailey, who is a sitting judge in
Palm Beach County and won-
derful teller of Florida history
tales, and another 250-some rid-
ers.
See Trail- Page 2


INI/MaryAnn Morris
The Cracker Trail riders and horses camp out each night, along the trail, just as Florida's
early "cow hunters" did. Riders are saddled up and ready to ride Friday, Feb. 23 Food
brought in the chuck wagon might be just a mite better than the food the cow hunters could
carry with them!

Length of school day under review


By Nancy Zuckerbrod

BOSTON School principal
Robin Harris used to see the clock
on her office wall as the enemy, its
steady ticking a reminder that time
was not on her side.
But these days Harris smiles
when the clock hits 1:55 p.m.
There are still two more hours in
the school day two more hours
to teach math and reading, art and
drama.
Harris runs Fletcher-Maynard
Academy, a combined public ele-
mentary and middle school in
Cambridge, Mass., that is experi-
menting with an extended, eight-
hour school day.
"It has sort of loosened up the


pace," Harris said. "It's not as
rushed and frenzied."
The school, which serves
mostly poor, minority students, is
one of 10 in the state experiment-
ing with a longer day as part of a
$6.5 million program.
While Massachusetts is; leading
in putting in place the longer-day
model, lawmakers in Minnesota,
New Mexico, New York and
Washington, D.C., also have
debated whether to lengthen the
school day or year.
In addition, individual districts
such as Miami-Dade in Florida are
experimenting with added hours
in some schools.
On average, U.S. students go to
school 6.5 hours a day, 180 days a
year, fewer than in many other

industrialized countries, accord-
ing to a report by the Education
Sector, a Washington-based think
tank.
One model that traditional
public schools are looking to is the
Knowledge is Power Program,
which oversees public charter
schools nationwide.
Those schools typically serve
low-income middle-school stu-
dents, and their test scores show
success. Students generally go
from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during
the week and for a few hours
every other Saturday. They also go
to school for several weeks in the
summer.
That amounts to at least 50 per-
cent more instructional time for
students in such programs than in


traditional public schools, accord-
ing to the report.
The extended-day schedule
costs on average about $1,200
extra per student, program
spokesman Stephen Mancini said.
Massachusetts is spending
about $1,300 per student extra on
its extended-day effort.
Most of the extra cost goes into
added pay for teachers. At Fletch-
er-Maynard, senior teachers can
make up to $20,000 more per year
for the extended hours, Harris
said. Not all of the school's teach-
ers have opted to work longer
hours.
The National Education Associ-
ation, the largest teacher's union,
has no official opinion on extend-
ing the school day.

and commentary.
The easy access to young
members has acted like a magnet
to the unsavory members of soci-
ety.
A soccer coach in California
was recently arrested on suspi-
cion of raping a 14-year-old girl
he met on MySpace.com He
allegedly lured her to a home in
Richmond under the guise of
signing a modeling contract.
In Denver, Colo., six men sus-
pected of stealing $40,000 worth
of items from a home and rap-
ing the girl who invited them over
after meeting them on
MySpace.com were identified
through their MySpace profiles.
A 21-year-old man in Arizona
was arrested on suspicion of two
counts of sexual conduct with a
minor after meeting a 16-year-old
female on MySpace.com and
striking up a friendship with her.
The underage female used a
computer at the local public
library to chat with the suspect.
In San Francisco a local news-
paper found five registered sex
offenders and predators listed on
MySpace, simply by running their
names through the site's search
engine.
In June 2006, a 16-year-old girl
flew to the Middle East after trick-

ing her parents into getting her a
passport in order to be with a 20-
year-old man she met through
MySpace.
The site, however, has also
assisted law enforcement in the
apprehension of various crimi-
nals.
In Fontana, Calif., a group of
boys posing as a 15-year-old girl
for an internet prank assisted
police in the arrest of a 48-year-
old man who tried to meet the fic-
titious teenager for sex. The boys
created the fictitious girl and gave
her a made-up profile in 'order to
cheer up a friend who had recent-
ly broken up with his girlfriend.
But, they got more than they bar-
gained for when a man began
sending messages to the "girl"
and their conversations began to
turn sexual in nature.
The man sent the "girl" a pic-
ture and arranged to meet her in
a local park. The boys went to the
park and called the police when
the man arrived.
Maryland State Police .arrested
a couple in connection with child
abuse charges and a drug investi-
gation after a juvenile's
MySpace.com forum entry was
read. According to police, a 12
year old had traveled from Port St.
Lucie to Maryland to visit her
father for the holidays. During her
visit, she was allegedly given
cocaine and marijuana by her
father and stepmother. After
returning to Port St. Lucie, the girl

Map shows the route taken by the 20th Annual Cracker Trail
Ride from just east of Bradenton to Fort Pierce. This ride is
done every year by hundreds of riders to draw attention to
Florida's cattle and horse heritage.


Trail

Continued From Page 1
The term "cracker" began
because of the long whips carried
by the cow hunters. The whips
and dogs and little native cracker
horses were the tools of these
early cattlemen back in the mid-
1800s. The cracker horse, cattle
and "cur" dog breeds are being
kept alive by the grandchildren of
those hardy pioneers who braved
knee-deep water and thick clouds
of mosquitoes to make a living on
the Florida frontier.
This year's trail boss is Ms.
Sam Harper from Okeechobee.


"We have people from as far
away as Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee,
New York and Kentucky riding
this year. People really like to
come out for this," said Ms. Harp-
er as she rode out, whip curled in
hand on her mule.
Burt and Linda McDonald
came from Eustis, Florida after
cleaning up after the recent torna-
dos that hit their area.
People brought their children
and grandparents who rode in
covered wagons to remember
that Florida isn't Disney and
beaches, Florida was, and still is
major cattle country. Thanks to
these people and the Cracker Trail
Association, the history still lives.

wrote about the drug usage on
MySpace and then told her moth-
er. Her mother then contacted
Maryland police.
In Brevard County, a man is
accused of using MySpace to meet
a 13-year-old girl and then allegedly
raping her.
Law enforcement officials stat-
ed that he met the girl last year on
MySpace and began talking with
her in an unregulated chat room.
When they realized they both lived
in Satellite Beach, they decided to
meet.
The girl told police that the man
brought her to an alcohol- and
marijuana-filled party at a local
apartment complex in June 2005.
After the party, theywent for a walk
on the beach for what the girl
thought was to talk. The man had
other ideas.
In addition to sexual predators,
street gangs can be found on
MySpace. They have their own
web page, blogs, photos and
videos.
Recently MySpace stated that it
had deleted about 200,000 of what
it called objectionable posts after
receiving complaints from law-

makers and parents.
In January, MySpace teamed up
with Sentinel Technology to donate
database tools to the National Cen-
ter for Missing and Exploited Chil-
dren (NCMEC) to help get sex
offenders off online sites.
The Sentinel Safe database sys-
tem is a tool that MySpace has
been developing to let it and third
parties block sex offenders from its
site. The NCMEC will use the sys-
tem to help law enforcement. The
system currently houses informa-
tion on about 600,000 registered
sex offenders in the United States.
The Sentinel system receives most
updates from local sex offender
registries.
MySpace and Sentinel Tech will
provide all research and develop-
ment necessary to fit the system to
the NCMEC's needs.
Unfortunately, the system does
not stop potential members from
lying about themselves to obtain
membership to the site.
Until something can be done to
truly insure the safety of the site's
underage members, the responsi-
bility falls on parents and guardians
of the children using MySpace.

OHS students plan activities during FCAT Community Events


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
During FCAT testing, the entire
school will be treated to a free
breakfast. Following this comple-
mentary meal, students will report
to their second hour classes for
attendance and then disperse to
their designated activity. Through
the next two weeks students in the
tenth grade and those that have not
yet passed their FCAT will be in
testing. Those that have already
tested and passed will be treated to
other activities.
On Feb. 26, Monday, members
of the junior class will review for
their science FCAT. They will do


this by circulating through various
science classrooms to go over the
material that may be covered in the
test.
Also, OHS seniors that have
passed the FCAT will be taking a
field trip to visit Indian River Com-
munity College (IRCC). Seniors can
visit with members of a profession
that they may be considering for
their future, to discuss the require-
ments that are needed for the said


career.
During the day students will be
able complete paperwork to enter
a drawing at the end of the day.
Two names will then be drawn and
the two winners will each receive a
$500 scholarship to IRCC.
Students are asked to bring
small bills and change to use in
vending machines during breaks,
since lunch will not be served until
they return to the OHS campus.
As a reward to the those stu-
dents in the eleventh grade that
have successfully passed the FCAT,
OHS will hold their annual 'Juniors
to Boomers' field trip on Feb. 27, to
the fun park Boomers.
Each junior that takes the trip is


expected to pay $10 for the trip,
and that money provides them
with their entrance fee, unlimited
lazar tag, mini-golf, and go-cart
rides, and a supply of tokens for the
arcade. Lunch is also provided. Stu-
dents that wish to purchases addi-
tional tokens or food will be
responsible for their own mone-
tary support.
Students will leave for the trip at
8 a.m. and return around 4 p.m.
Seniors that have passed the

You have the power to change the world


Today has had me thinking
about the memories we will
leave with our family.
We may not aspire to be a
head of state but we can take
baby steps to make a difference
in our world. We are the shining
example in our homes. Our per-
sonality whether it is positive or
negative flows through our fami-
ly. It is up to us to set the tone in
our home. If we are grouchy
then our babies will be grouchy,
our critters will be fussy and our
spouses will go hide.
Isn't it better to have our
babies remember us for the
twinkle in our eye when they ask
if we could come and play and
then we say yes!! All because our
homes are not weighing heavily
on our hearts; now I have huge
puddles rolling down my face.
Life is too short to not live it to
the fullest. When you are dead
and gone your babies are not
going to remember how clean
our homes were, but they will
remember that their mother or
father was happy and filled their

home with love.
I just heard the music Going
Home from Antonin Dvorak's
New World Symphony on TV. I
turned off the TV and put on my
favorite radio station to hear
mine and Robert's favorite sym-
phony by Camille Saint-Saens;
The Organ Symphony. That
beautiful music brought back a
touching memory of our first
kiss. I guess it is those little mem-
ories that stay with us all of our
lives. My sweetie choreographed
our first kiss to the 4th move-*
ment when the organist pulls out
all the stops on the organ and
fills the air with the most won-
derful sounds. We don't listen


to it often but when we do we
are touched by its beauty and
power. I feel that this was a God
Breeze to affirm this message to
you!
We all have the power to
change the world even if it is just
our little neck of the woods. Our
attitude is everything. I want for
you what I have Peace! Peace in
knowing that I will be remem-
bered for my smile and my posi-
tive contagious spirit! I live by
these three rules.
Don't sweat the small stuff;
what doesn't matter doesn't
matter.
Laugh every day even if it is at
yourself.
And love like there is no
tomorrow!
We all have the power to
change the world in our little
neck of the woods; it doesn't
matter if you are from a big city
or a small town!
