tectives under the rank of corporal
at the Okeechobee County Sheriff 's
Office (OCSO) ratified their new

Police (FOP) Lodge #69, said there
were 60 eligible voters at the OCSO
and that 49 ballots were given out.
Some of the ballots, he added,
weren't returned.
"By the vote, everyone was ex-
tremely happy (with the contract),"
said Deputy Hazellief of last week's
vote. The goals of the pact, he add-
ed, were to legitimize the union
locally and gain standardization
within the sheriff 's office.
Even though the final contract
gives the appearance that not
much was accomplished, that ap-
pearance is misleading. Several of

Okeechobee will soon have a new pediatrics and
dental clinic named after a pediatrician who has
cared for three generations of Okeechobee families.
The 22,000 square foot Dr. Fred Brown Children's
Health Center, scheduled for completion in August,
is being built by Florida Community Health Centers
(FCHC) at 2015 U.S. 441 adjacent to the Okeecho-
bee County Cattleman's Arena.
Dr. Brown has been serving Okeechobee families
for 30 years and FCHC for 16 years. Those families
Dr. Brown has served will have the opportunity to
help with the new clinic. The $3.5 million project
is being built using $1.6 million in federal stimulus

fundraisers.
There are two fundraisers currently planned. On
May 18 there will be a celebrity server night at Gold-
en Corral from 5 to 8 p.m. The staff and doctors of
FCHC plus others in the community will be servers.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by sending an
e-mail to mfergusonefchcinc.org.
Interested people can also honor Dr. Brown's
priceless service by purchasing "Priceless Pavers."
These are 4" x 8" and 8" x 8" pavers that will be
placed in the walkways leading to the front doors of
the facility. They can be used to memorialize loves

Children's services will be consolidated
in the new building along with expanded

1 100 N. Parrot Avenue. This will allow FCHC
to sell their facility on N.W. Fifth Avenue.
Since 2004 FCHC has owned the property
on U.S. 441. Now, thanks to stimulus funds
and fund raisers, they are able to develop the
property.

Those tax certificates not sold revert to
the county. The county automatically charg-
es 18 percent interest on the certificates. Af-
ter June 1 an interested person may buy a
certificate from the county. Their seven year
period begins at the time of purchase. Those
certificates held by the county that are not
bought may also be foreclosed at the end of
two years and go for public auction. After
three years lands not sold become county
owned property.
In 2009, 3,471 tax certificates were auc-
tioned, leaving 2,192 unsold tax certificates
to be held by the county. Since June 1 of last
year over half of those certificates have been
sold leaving 992 in county possession.
In 2008, 3,308 tax certificates were sold.
Last year clerk of the court Sharon Rob-
ertson said that there were 409 foreclosures
because of unpaid taxes. So far this year
there have been 135 foreclosures because of
unpaid taxes and she said there are currently
184 more to be processed.

These banked hours must be used within
an 11-month period and must be used by
August 31 of that fiscal year.
This new system will also alleviate sched-
uling headaches for supervisors. Under the
old system, supervisors were sometimes
caught in situations where they were forced
to send someone home early but couldn't
really afford to because they didn't have the
manpower available to effectively cover the

fee by May 31 a tax certificate will not be
awarded on their property.
A tax certificate is not a purchase of
property, it is a lien on the property. Inves-
tors bid on how much interest they would
charge to pay the taxes. The investor who
will charge the lowest interest gets the bid,
pays the taxes due and receives a tax certifi-
cate. After two years, certificate holders can
foreclose. The property owner must pay the
certificate holder the property tax plus the
specified interest to keep their property. The
tax certificate is good for seven years. At the
end of seven years, if the certificate holder
has taken no action to foreclose, they forfeit
what they have paid in taxes to the county.
All bidding will be done online from May
14 to midnight on May 31. The list of delin-
quent properties will be published in a 35-
page insert to the Okeechobee News on May
14, May 21 and May 28. It will also be avail-

reported that her daughter had been sexu-
ally molested by Tru;esdell several times.
Truesdell, stated the detective, left Clay
County after he learned of the invest a-

According to an arrest affidavit by Deputy

had been suspended, Deputy Crawford placed
the man under arrest. Then, while doing an in

Inside that bottle, stated the deputy's report,
were 17 oxycodone pills and four xanax pills.
The label on the bottle indicated that the pre-
scription was for enalapril, which is a generic
form of vasotec, the deputy stated.
Drugs.com states that vasotec is usually
prescribed to treat: high blood pressure; con-
gestive heart failure; and, kidney problems due
to diabetes. It is also used to improve survival
after a heart attack.
Deputy Crawford stated that he also issued
Hale a traffic warning for failure to obey a stop
sign.

*I live in Buckhead and I am wanting
to put up a TV antenna but was wondering
what the reception was like out here. I know
I don't get a cell phone signal and thought
that might hold true for TV as well.
*My neighbor has an omni-directional
antenna. It looks like a flying saucer on a
pole. He gets great reception from the east
coast and the antenna is, only about twenty
feet up.
*We had one of those and found that
lightening seems to like them -- a lot.

you do move them back into the air condi-

ALL the comforts of home except AC so get
a battery operated fan and a nice box fan
that you can plug into that generator.
*Generators: DO NOT KILL YOUR FAM-

I don't even like them on screened porches.
Use extension cords and keep them well
away from your home.


*You should always remove all fuel from
your portable generators. We didn't one year

real work to get the collaborator cleaned
out so the generator would even run. Also
always start the generator before storm sea-

Do a background check
*There are a lot of resources on the web.
Before a person has a boyfriend/girlfriend
move into their home, it would be very easy,
and wise to do a background check. As I was
browsing the Florida Corrections website on
this post, I thought this would be a useful
tool to do this. It's free, and even though

*I wonder why it is every one has some-
thing bad to say about the man they put in

The only way for evil to succeed is for a good
man not to do anything. You put him there.
You also have the power to take him out!
So put up or shut up! You took God out of
the schools, the workplace, your personal
lives. Your children are behaving like igno-

rights than their victims and you wonder
why this country is going to hell in a hand

OC ave recently had the pleasure of work-
ing with the staff and students at Okeecho-
bee Christian Academy. What an honor it is
to be able to praise the Lord openly or send
out a hallelujah while at school. My hope is
that one day my own daughter will be able
to attend there. The students there are very
intelligent and educated beyond their years.
I was astonished at the skills the students
have retained. The staff is very caring and
helpful. Some people may think they cannot
afford to send their child to OCA but finan-
cial assistance and scholarships are avail-
able. The benefits of a Christian education
are priceless. They offer smaller class size
and after school care.

the growing concern nationwide that began
with the publication of "Silent Spring," the
EPA banned the use of DDT by 1973, just in
time to save the national symbol -the bald
eagle -from certain extinction.
Carson brought awareness, but some dis-
agreed with her. One publication compared
her to Sen. Joseph McCarthy b because of what
they deemed her intense desire to destroy
industry and agriculture in this county. Un-
fortunately, Carson died of cancer in 1964,
and never saw the positive fruition her book
yielded as it became the foundation for an
ecology-minded public.
What would Carson say to us today? She
wrote, "The public must decide whether it
wishes to continue on the present road, and
it can do so only when in full possession of
the facts."
Those words are as true today as they
were back in 1962 when she wrote them.
No matter what we believe as individuals, it
is imperative that we read everything we can
and decipher what is true and what is pro-
paganda. An intelligent public can only make
wise decisions based on informed and sci-
ence-based information. If you doubt spring
is coming earlier or pollen count is higher this
year, and your yellow car or red nose is not
the proof you need, read as much as you can
from reliable sources, such as the climatolo-
gits who are responsible for studying such

best scientific information available to make
informed decisions," said Doug Parsons, the
head of the FWC's climate change team.
"Our job in managing wildlife as changes oc-
cur is enhanced and assisted by the public's
awareness and cooperation." To that end,
this month the FWC launches a new website
on climate change. At your fingertips, you can
access a wealth of materials that can assist
you in understanding this issue and what ac-
tions you can take or not take. Visit the new
website at MyFWC.com/ClimateChange. By
becoming informed, we can conserve our
wildlife, and that's nothing to sneeze at.


Guest Commentary

By Patricia Behnke
FWC
"Bless you," my coworkers shout out sev-
eral times each morning. My gray car turned
yellow with pollen extra-early this year, and
my sinuses did not handle it well.
An early, powerful spring escalated this
year into one powerful economic boon for
antihistamine manufacturers and allergy doc-
tors. We Floridians suffer through knowing
that soon summer humidity and heat will
drive us to seek air-conditioned bliss.
But wildlife may not fare so well with the
continued disruption to the seasons they de-

peTdhe tionuri t Mdif Feoun aion recently
published a report stating that spring now
arrives 10-14 days earlier than it did 20 years
ago. Climate change has been the suspect-
ed culprit. However, a gentleman recently
stopped by my office to tell me he was cer-
tain global warming was a hoax, because
Venice had not sunk into the ocean. What's
a gal to think?
As I sifted through all the materials to
learn why this spring seems to be so power-
ful, I found myself thinking about the past. I
remember a tractor driving around the small
town where I lived in the late 1950s and early
1960s. One man drove the machine with a
large horizontal tank on the back spraying
white clouds of poison to kill the mosquitoes
that grew to the size of flies during a north-
ern summer. My mother would admonish

in wait in the grass.
All the while the birds in the sky choked to
death -a very visible sign to herald changes
in the way we viewed the environment and
wildlife. If the disappearance of the bald ea-
gle and other birds did not give enough proof
of the damage being done, Rachel Carson, a
writer and biologist, wrote "Silent Spring" in
1962, recounting her findings of the destruc-
tion of wildlife as a result of the indiscriminate
use of pesticides to fight the insect war. Her
writing led to the birth of an environmental

A snake caused about 1,600 Florida Power & Light customers to be without power
Wednesday afternoon, May 5. An FP&L spokesman said that a power outage occurred
in the area around S.W 16th Avenue at 12:22 p.m. An FP&L crew was dispatched to the
scene and could find no cause for the power outage and they had power restored by 1
p.m. A second power outage in the sarne area was reported at 3:10 p.m. This time the
FP&L crew responding found a power pole on fire. A snake had climbed the pole and
shorted out the equipment causing the pole to catch on fire. The crew changed out the
pole in less than one hour, restoring power to the area.

Okeechobee News


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Tuesday, May 4 meeting of the
Okeechobee County Construction Industry
Licensing Board (CLIB) was more interest-
ing than usual.
The first case heard took on the tone of a
courtroom trial with attorneys for both sides
questioning subpoenaed witnesses.
According to the building official an in-
vestigation revealed a total of 13 building
permit applications made by Perfect Pools
and signed by electrical contractor George
Maxwell. When contacted, Mr. Maxwell de-
nied signing any of the permits in question
or doing any of the work.


Gary Skinner, doing business as Perfect
Pools, was called before the board to answer
charges of building code violations. Mr. Skin-
ner, his wife, Maxine, and daughter-in-law,
Juliet, readily admitted having an agreement
with Mr. Maxwell, forging Mr. Maxwell's
signature and paying Mr. Maxwell cash un-
der the table to use his electrician's license
while Mr. Skinner did electrical work he was
not licensed to do, Mr. Maxwell denied all
charges.
"I don't know any of these people," stated
Mr. Maxwell when he was shown the permit
applications in question. "If I had any deal-
ings with these people I would sign then


myself." He said that no one at Perfect Pools
was allowed to work on his behalf.
"Did you sign Mr. Maxwell's name?"
county attorney John Cassels asked Juliet
Skinner.
"Yes, sir, I did," was her reply. "He gave
Ine permission to do it. I honestly did not
know I was doing anything wrong."
Mr. Skinner admitted he was aware he
was working outside the scope of his license
when he did electrical work.
"They haven't done any work under my
narne,' Mr. Maxwell said. "If I had sorne deal
with him, I'd be signing the applications,"
asserted Mr. Maxwell.
Is it legal to rent your license?" Mr. Cas-
sels asked Mr. Maxwell.
"No" was Mr. Maxwell's reply.
"Did you rent your license to Perfect
Pools?" Mr. Cassels then asked.
"No," was Mr. Maxwells reply.
"They knew what they were doing and
they were breaking the law" was the opinion
of board nernber Elbert Batton. The board
found Mr. Skinner guilty of violation of build-
ing codes and working outside the scope of
his license for each of the 13 building permit
applications in question. He was fined $250
for each violation for a total of $6,500. In ad-
dition, the board rescinded his ability to pull
building permits in Okeechobee County.
Turning to the other case, a nerno dated
Nov. 3, 2009, from an administrative assistant
to Mr. Cassels states: "As you may already be
aware, we had a deposit on Nov. 12, 2008
that never made it to finance. The deposit


had a total of $334.25 in cash and $8,261.33
in check form. Frorn that deposit we have
re-collected a total of $1,361.92."
One of the checks still unaccounted for
is from Lacert Hornes Inc. in the amount
of $6,669.10. Mr. Cassels stated that the
county's position was that the check was
lost either by the county or by the bank, and
that the county is requesting a replacement
check. He said that failure to make payment
within a reasonable time could result in the
privilege of Lacert Hornes to pull building
permits in Okeechobee County to be re-
voked.
Claudette Benton, an employee of Lacert
Hornes requested more time for her ern-
player. She said the business owner had sold
sorne property and was waiting for the sale
to close. Then he would be able to make
good on the check. The board voted to post-
pone the matter until their June meeting.
In a later telephone interview building
official Tirn English stated that once it was
discovered that the deposit was missing,
any monies given to the building depart-
Inent since then have been "watchdogged"
Inuch more closely. There have been no
more instances of missing funds and no
one is suspected of stealing the funds. It is
believed that the missing funds were simply
misplaced in the paperwork.

Okeechobee News


By Becky Posey Smith
The Healthy Start Coalition of Okeecho-
bee is known for assisting mothers and their
babies. However, the Coalition also strives to
educate the entire community about the is-
sues which affect the health of mothers and
their babies. The Coalition is not a source of
cash assistance but is instead a source of ed-
ucation and support. Healthy Start services
include childbirth education, parenting edu-
cation, breastfeeding support, car seat edu-
cation, emergency transportation, smoking
cessation and psychosocial/grief counseling.
All these services are free to those who con-
sent to participate in the Healthy Start pro-
gram. Women who are at risk of having a
poor birth outcome are urged to participate
in the Care Coordination case management
program. These women are followed close-
ly by Care Coordinators who educate and
support the at-risk population. Care Coordi-
nators are highly trained para-professionals
who have a vast knowledge of community
resources. Combining education with sup-
port helps to improve birth outcomes, giving
babies the healthiest start possible.
The gateway to the Healthy Start pro-
gram is the Healthy Start screen. Doctors
are mandated by the state of Florida (Florida
Statute 383.14) to administer this question-
naire which assesses any potential risks dur-
ing pregnancy. Each question carries points
and scoring 6 points or more gains access
to the program. Access to Healthy Start is
based on risk, not on income. However, a


low-risk woman who merely wants the edu-
cation may "self refer" and will be accepted
into the program.
The Healthy Start Coalition hosts the
Educational Baby Shower twice each year.
Mothers who are invited are seated and
served a variety of donated foods and cake.
Booths are set up to explain many issues on
parenting such as immunizations, poison
safety, developmental milestones, car seat
safety and much more. Shower participants
go to each booth and listen for 15 minutes
before they go on to the next booth. Each
booth gives away small baby items (rattles,
sippy cups, bibs) and each booth raffles a
large baby item (crib, stroller, digital ther-
mometer). All participants walk away with
a bag of goodies and a lot of education! Sev-
eral lucky clients win a variety of raffles and
door prizes.
The most recent shower took place on
April 23, at the American Legion Hall. The
American Legion is a long-time communi-
ty partner in this event and the Coalition is
grateful for the use of their venue.
Many educators and volunteers are in-
volved in this event as well. The Health Oc-
cupations Students of America (HOSA) from
the High School volunteer under the direc-
tion of Mrs. Denise Kelchner. The Coalition
recognizes their community service as an
"in-kind" donation which is formally docu-
mented each year to the Florida Department
of Health. The educators involved include
the Care Coordinators from our local Health


Department: Staci Sharpe, RN, Johanna Ken-
worthy, BS, Dora Sanchez, Yesenia Perez,

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Ricky Nieto competes Friday in the Class
3A Track championships in Winter Park for
the third time in the high jump competition
and this time he expects to be a title con-
tender.
The Okeechobee High School student
j"ipedn6' at hh rent renalp nomh
year. His goal is to achieve 6'8" at the state
competition.
"Right now the top jump in the state is
6'8" so I feel I can compete with all of the
athletes," Nieto saidS.
Nieto has gone further than most
Okeechobee athletes simply because he's
had to. The high school does not have a
proper high jump practice area so Coach
Jason Egli has volunteered to drive him to
Martin County High School to practice.
"That work has really helped me. It has
improved my approach. Coach Egli jumped
in high school and has helped me," he said.
"I've been able to practice and I just try to do
my best. My form pretty much stays with me
for the most part."
Other coaches who have assisted Ricky
in the past three years include Brian Kendall,
Mike Schs1p dNaha an Owen, and Jul B han-

people to drive him to Martin County so he
can practice.
Nieto said the coaches saw he had the
natural ability to jump when he was only
in middle school. They encouraged him to
give the long jump and the high jump a try.
He admits he wasn't very good at first, but
constantly improved through hard work and
dedication.
"I didn't know I'd get this good at it," he
joked.
Nieto said his experience in the state
competition might give him an advantage
on Friday. He said he doesn't get intimidated
but rather excited, when he goes up against
the best.


UKeechobee News/CUnaries Iviurpny
Ricky Nieto reached the state track
meet for the third consecutive year.

"This is the best competition in the state.
It is exciting to watch these jumpers," he
added.
Nieto admits he has been streaky in his
performance this year. He did say the district
and regional meets were his best of the year
so he thinks he might be peaking at the right
time.
Nieto also plays basketball and has had a
number of college offers due to his prowess
in both sports. He said he wasn't interested
inet av ning oun asnat teo elyin oollg n
perhaps try and make the basketball team as
a walk on. After two years he'd like to trans-
fer to the University of Florida or perhaps the
University of Central Flonida.
Assistant Principal Mike Radebaugh said
the high school is very proud of Nieto, both
on the court, and in the classroom. "He ab-
solutely represents everything good about
academics and sports. He takes rigorous
courses, maintains a great grade point aver-
age, and also volunteers at the school. He
shows a lot of leadership."
Nieto also thanked his mom Linda Nieto
and his grand mother Faye Godwin for their
support.

Okeechobee News


May 7, 2010


On Thursday, April 22, the Okeecho-
bee Model Airplane Club held their annual
model aircraft display for the students of the
Central Elementary School. Unfortunately,
the weather was not as cooperative as the
participants. It was originally scheduled for
Wednesday, April 21, but was postponed
one day due to rain. On Thursday, while the
display was a big success, the pilots could
not demonstrate any flying because of the
wind, but they did get to taxi a few aircraft
on the ground for the students to see.
The weather did however offer more op-
portunity for the students to ask questions
about the aircraft and the OMAC pilots were
more than willing to answer them. The pi-


lots also reversed the opportunity and asked
the students some questions about aviation
history and flying. Much to the pleasure of
the OMAC Pilots the students knew most
of the answers which is a credit to both the
students and the Okeechobee Education
System.
While some people may see school chil-
dren looking at toy airplanes, the informed
aviation enthusiast knows the important
role Model Aviation has had in the history of
Aviation and how important this opportunity
was for the future of these students. As early
as the Wright Brothers, Model Aviation was
used to develop and test full sized aircraft.
During the fall of 1901 the Wrights modeled
and tested over 200 wings in their wind tun-
nel to understand lift, control and find a de-
sign that worked best. Today model aircraft
are still in use for the development and test-
ing of their full sized counterparts.
Model Aviation is also serves to preserve
Aviation History. Many of the models being
built and flown today are exact miniature
replicas of famous aircraft from the past
which unfortunately no longer exist. But
today's modelers and model aircraft pilots
are giving us a glimpse of the past by build-
ing and flying historic aircraft. Their silhou-
ettes are still seen in the skies today thanks
to model aviation. Model Aviation has also
recently branched out to military and civilian
authorities who are also now using remote-
ly controlled aircraft on the front line of the
battlefield and in many locations nationwide
for homeland security.


The Okeechobee Model Airplane Club,
Inc. is a not for profit organization formed
to promote and foster the development of
Model Aviation. If you have a group inter-
ested in seeing what Model Aviation is all
about, OMAC would be happy to set up a
display or flight demonstration for your or-
ganization. Currently OMAC is working with
the Okeechobee Civil Air Patrol Squadron
in developing a program to introduce CAP
members, especially CAP Cadets to Model
Aviation.
OMAC meets the first Monday of the
month and has a flying site on the west side
of NE 80th Avenue where on most week-


end and some weekday mornings you can
watch some of our pilots slip the surely
bonds of earth to fly with the eagles! If you
are interested in becoming a member of
the Okeechobee Model Airplane Club, Inc.
please stop by our flying field or call Joe Pa-
passo at 863-824-0916 for more information
or to schedule a display. The Okeechobee
Model Airplane Club, inc. is dedicated to our
goal of promoting Model Aviation and has
a number of instructors ready to teach you
how to fly Radio Controlled Model Aircraft,
or just come by, meet the members and en-
joy the air show.

aircraft.

Central students

complete Public

Speaking program
Congratulations to the fourth graders
of Central Elementary who just completed
their Public Speaking Unit. Each student
worked hard on writing and then presenting
a speech that had to be at least two minutes
long. Students received instruction on how
to bond with the audience, articulate, and
how their voice and its loudness and speed
all play a part in public speaking.
Students spoke about their grandma, the
space shuttle program and elephants. Oth-
ers spoke about recycling and WWII, many
topics were covered and Mrs. Pritchard
wishes to thank her teachers in her team for
doing such a great job with the instruction
and prep with their students. Our school
winners are as following: Honorable Men-
tion goes to Sally Tijerina and Hakeem Kidd
who spoke about the homeless and Michael
Jackson respectively. Third place goes to
Kaleigh Sparkman and her speech on want-
ing to be a marine biologist. Second place is
Daniel Fulleda and he spoke about becom-
ing a Christian and Emma Van Camp took
the first place honor with her speech about
the space shuttle program. Thank you to our
judges, Mrs. Marilyn Pritchard, Ms. Regina
Hammrick, and Ms. Gay Carlton who sup-
ported our efforts and education by helping
us with the judging.

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School varsity and
junior varsity flag football teams were hon-
ored Wednesday night with a banquet in the
OHS cafeteria.
Coaches Todd Jones and Bruce Jahner
issued certificates and other awards to the
athletes who competed this year. .
Both were first year football coaches this
year and admitted it was a learning expeni-
ence both for themselves and for the girls.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the experience,"
Jones told the crowd of about 200 people, "I
really didn't realize what I was getting into.
We picked it up quickly and by the end of
the year I feel we got our stuff together."
Jahner said he has a new opinion about
football coaches and what really goes into
coaching the sport. "It was a wonderful
experience. It was a little bit different from
the boy's sports. The girls worked hard. We
didn't get a lot of wins but I have a new in-
spiration of what football is all about."
Jones coached the Junior Varsity squad
with help from Brahman senior Garth Strieb-
el, an offensive lineman on the boys football
team. Striebel ran the defense and Jones the
offense this year.
"It was nice to meet some new girls and I
feel many of them came out of their shell by
the end of the year," he added.
Jahner received some assistance from
another senior football player Josh McCall.
He thanked the parents and said he mar-
veled at the girl's attitude. He said whether


they lost by two points or 45 points, the girls
had the same positive attitude after games.
"Once we hit the bus everything was okay.
There was a lot of singing on the bus, it was
a good group of girls and I feel they im-
proved by leaps and bounds. I'll real proud
of all of them "
Jones gave the JV Brahman award to
Alex Delacruz who was their main threat
on offense. Delacruz is a freshman this year.
She said she enjoys sports and was used to
contact sports, "I was really excited to win
the award. It was a new thing for me but I
said I'll try it and see how it goes. I did my
best and gave everything I had."
Morgan Crawford won the varsity Brah-
man award. The sophomore said she ex-
pects a lot of the girls to return next year and
is excited about the future, "Everyone will
return next year as we only had two seniors.
This year we had a lot of first year players.
I love sports and I try to play every sport. I
plan to try out for volleyball and cheerlead-
ing next year."
Crawford also had good things to say
about the coaches of the team, "They are
my favorite. They were awesome. All of the
girls liked each other and got along. We all
plan to work over the summer and get bet-
ter."
Jahner said 12 of the 17 players on the
varsity squad were scholar athletes. The list
included Macin Raulerson, Brittney Free-
man, Ande Eddings, Nikki Ingram, Darby
Jones, Kyla Hargraves, Adrianna Mitchell,
Aubrey Robertson, Brooke Snyder, and Ka-
tie Ward.

Wildlife 'rescues' can do more harm than good


Several members of the public from the
Humane Society of the United States and
the Florida reptile industry spoke, applaud-
ing the FWC's efforts so far and encouraging
rapid action on these issues.
Also discussed were changes regard-
ing local commercial zoning and building
codes. Over the past several months, FWC
employees worked with representatives
from the Florida Association of Counties,
local government and other stakeholders
on possible changes to county-related cap-
tive wildlife rules. Commissioners requested
that staff continue working with counties on
these issues. When the Commission meets
again in September, it will address whether
new licensees who possess Class I or Class
II wildlife for commercial purposes must
meet local commercial zoning and building
codes.

tive wildlife regulations is available at MyIF-
WC.com/Rules; click on "Captive Wildlife."

May 7, 2010


Winter is finally over. Trees and flowers
are blossoming, birds are building nests and
critters are being born.
This is also the time of year when the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) begins getting calls about
"abandoned" animals that folks believe may
be in need of rescue.
hHowever, these rescues may do more
armtera govng birth, adult wildlife must
forage to provide food for themselves and
their young. This means leaving their new-
borns for short periods. Having some basic
knowledge of wildlife and the survival skills
animals use can help avoid attempting to
rescue animals thratdon'tr sep rs ues

is hbaeb deer tempomarildy left in a sep ae
ple who find fawns mistakenly assume they
have been abandoned, when in reality its
parents are in the process of ensuring the
infant's survival.
"In most cases, it is absolutely not in the
fawn's best interest to try and rescue it,"
said Allan Hallman, wildlife biologist at the
FWC's Camp Blanding Field Office.
Hallman says what typically happens is
someone discovers a young deer waiting
fr its mother.a Othee, tho e tlwn aeb f

areas, where a doe has placed her new off-
spring for protection. These settings tend to
help mask the fawn's scent, thus providing
good protection from the keen nose of a
predator.


People discover these seemingly aban-
doned baby deer and become concerned
when the parent is nowhere in sight. The
would-be rescuer falsely believes the young
animal will perish unless they save it or take
it to a wildlife rehabilitation center.
"Unfortunately, actions of this kind usual-
ly have the opposite effect of a rescue," Hall-
man said. "The stress created by changing
thealanimal's diet and surroundings is often

its r returno e wild i r tic Iles tmo s
revlses 11 hunan in pnntin o akthof
young deer would have learned the neces-
sry survival skills from its mother," Hallman

Another way to help with the survival
of the young animals is to not feed them.
Although that may sound odd, feeding can
cause problems ranging from poor nutri-
tion to making the animal dependent on
humans for food to loss of foraging skills, all
of which can decrease the critter's chances
of survival.
"These animals have survived for a long
time without assistance. They can continue
to survive without handouts," Hallman said.
a The FWC recommendsmthatd nf you
it, and quietly leave the area. Touching the
animal may cause the mother to reject it be-
cause it is contaminated with human scent.
On the other hand, songbirds have al-
most no sense of smell and can be returned


to their nest without much chance of rejec-
tion. Young songbirds are commonly found
on the ground at this time of year, looking a
bit dazed or confused. The youngster may
be trying to hide in tall grass or in low bush-
es to avoid being seen by predators. These
young birds are going through a process
called fledging.
When they're ready to fledge, young birds
have grown all the adult feathers they'll need
to fly, but they still must learn to fly. During
this process, the immature Nirds sometimes
end up on te groun where tey may
send sveral days before they learn all their
lght s s
parWhile on the grounded the juvenile ireds

ind lshpngththem lan n cssry sur ia
that may harm the young birds indoors dur-
ing the spring and summer," Hallman said.
"Please don't interfere in this crucial learn-
ing process."
Here are some important facts that can
help determine if a baby bird needs rescu-
ing. According to biologists, the only time a
baby songbird should be rescued is when it
is on the ground and has almost no feathers,
when the bird is injured by pets or its tail is
less than a half-inch long, and it cannot hop
around on its own.
If you find a baby songbird you are sure
needs rescuing, place the baby bird in a tis-
sue-lined box that has air holes in the top.
Keep the box in a warm spot away from


drafts and air conditioning and out of di-
rect sunlight. Do not give it food or water.
Call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your
area. The FWC's South Region Office, 561-
625-5122, has a list of rehabbers. Many local
veterinarians also work closely with wildlife
rehabilitators and also can be a good source
of advice.
Another suggestion is to place the bird in a
lined box and attach the box to the tree from
where the bird fell. Sometimes the parents
will come to the baby in the new box and
feed it there. This gives the birds a chance to
be raised properly by their parents.
"Most parents will come back to care for
jc he cic teas of lmtee notoh u
ply, an inability to care for the young chick, or
for other reasons we may not understand,"
Hallman said. "If the parents don't return,
then the chick should be taken to a rehab
center. Migratory birds are protected and
need to be cared for by a licensed facility."
The FWC asks you to remember that re-
moving an animal from the wild to save it
may actually have the opposite effect. Seek
advice from wildlife professionals before at-
tempting to rescue any animal, and please
remember: in most cases, it is better to leave
wildlife wild.

life and what you can do to help, go to My-
FWC.com/Wlildlife and click on "Living with
Wildlife."


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) agreed last week
on amendments regarding captive wildlife
rules, which will take effect July 1, 2010.
Capt. John West of the FWC's Captive Wild-
life section led the final public hearing on
rule changes proposed at the Commission
meeting in February. .
When the new rules take effect, all ship-
ments of live wildlife that are sent interstate
or intrastate commerce will have to be la-
beled with the complete name and address
of the sender and receiver, as well as the
numbers and species of animals contained
in the shipment.
Another aspect of the changes is that li-
censees authorized to exhibit or sell Class
III wildlife, who are considered to be "hob-
byists," will no longer have to demonstrate
sustained consistent commercial activity.
"This change allows 'hobbyists' to pos-
sess wildlife primarily for their personal
enjoyment," West said. "But they can occa-
sionally exhibit or sell their wildlife without
having to demonstrate commercial activity."
A final aspect of the amendments allows
County Emergency Managers to review the
"Captive Wildlife Critical Incident/Disaster
Plan" that possessors of Class I or Class II
wildlife complete. "This change addresses
concerns of both the counties and the li-
censees," West said. "It will provide County
Emergency Managers access to 'Part B' of
the plan, while protecting licensees' sensi-
tive facility information from becoming pub-
lic record."

On April 20 and 21, firefighters from throughout the state met in Clewiston for
the annual Florida Firefighter Olympics Bass Tournament. Two of Okeecho-
bee's local anglers, Bob Owens and Fred George, participated in the event.
On the first day of competition, Owens and George were in seventh place;
however, on the second day of competition they were able to find the fish,
and the men returned to Okeechobee as gold medal winners. This was the
third time in the past five years that Owens and George brought home the
gold from these games. The other two years they brought home silver and
bronze.

OHS Softball Team annual

banquet planned for May 27

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Kim Hargraves was at a softball game
Tuesday night but unfortunately it wasn't
a regional final with Okeechobee High
School's team eligible to play.
She attended the Jensen Beach versus
Cardinal Gibbons of Fort Lauderdale game
and must have been thinking what might
have been for her team.
Okeechobee lost a painful 2-1 battle to
district foe Jensen Beach at home last Friday
and ended their season at (22-7). Hargraves
said she still was very proud of what her
team accomplished this year.
"Overall the girls played well in the game.
Friday's game was going to come down to
two evenly matched teams. I knew it would
come down to who made the first mistake,"
she added.
Hargraves said her team had opportuni-
ties to score runs and couldn't cash them in.
She noted she knew it would take more than
one run to advance to the next round.
"I told the girls not to be afraid when they
play. They have to be aggressive and try tO
make plays. On the throwing error I told the
girl you had to try it and I can't fault you for
that. If we had gotten her out, nobody would
have said a word," she added.
Hargraves said the winning run probably
shouldn't have been on the bases in the first
place because the runner was most likely out
on a bang-bang play earlier in the inning.
Okeechobee only loses three seniors off
this year's team and she expects her softball
program to be among the best in the region
again next year.
"I'm extremely happy with how well they
did this season. We went a lot further than
most people thought we would. We hung
right there with some older teams. In only
one game were we beat by more than one
run," she added.
Most of her players will be back next year
and Hargraves expects another long post
season run for the Lady Brahmans. "They
are a young team this year. It goes to show
you how hard work can pay off. It won't be
easy, but we'll be back again."
The girls will have their annual ban-

Okeechobee News

Okeechobee will be well represented in
the National High School Rodeo Finals in
Gillette, Wyo., July 18-24.
Last weekend at the Florida High School
Rodeo Association Finals at Fred Smith Are-
na on Brighton Seminole Reservation, seven
of the 14 competitors from the Okeechobee
High School Rodeo Team qualified for the
Nationals. Of the approximately 250 kids
in the Association, the top 15 in each event
qualify for the state meet, and then the top
four in each event at state move on to the
Nationals.
"I'm extremely proud of each one of my
team members," said Team Leader Missie
Peaden, parent of junior competitor Lexi
Peaden. "Not only are they exceptional ath-
letes, but they are great role models for other
young rodeo athletes. I'm proud to have this
opportunity to be part of this chapter in their
lives."
Okeechobee High School Rodeo Team
members who qualified for the Nationals
are:
Nat Stratton, 10th grade, Saddle Brone
Joseph Summerford, 11th grade, Boys
Cutting
Carlie Lanier, 11Ith grade, Girls Cutting
Tabitha Young, 9th grade, Girls Cutting
Jacob Anuez, 11th grade, Team Rop-
ing
*Garrett Rucks, 11th grade, Tie Down

*Andrew Holmes, 11Ith grade, Bareback
Others who represented the team in the
state finals were:

Tyler Mills, 9th grade, Bull Riding
Jessie Cofield, 12th grade, Girls Break-
away Roping
*Maci Culligan, 12th grade, Girls Break-

ing and Goat Tying

*Lexi Peaden, 11th grade, Girls Break-
away Roping.
There are 22 members of the Okeecho-
bee High School Rodeo Team, ranging from
ninth through 12th grades, most of whom
have been competing in rodeo events since
they were 4 to 6 years old. Some start by rid-
ing sheep at ages 2-4.
The team has competed in 21 rodeos
around the state of Florida this year, with the
season running from August to May. Team
members practice on their own time. These
competitors earn athletic letters from the
school, but because rodeo is not an officially
sanctioned school sport, they all have to pay
their own way.


"Rodeo is an extremely expensive sport,"
said Peaden, who donates her time to raising
funds for the group, organizing a banquet
and taking care of countless other logistics
regarding travel and Nationals coordination.
"Not one penny comes from the school.
Okeechobee High School has had a rodeo
team for about 30 years. The cost is approxi-
mately $300-500 for each kid for a two-day
trip to a rodeo because you have to haul
horses, you need fuel for a generator or
pay a hotel fee, there's an entry fee for each
event and there is a grounds fee for each
family. The fees quickly add up.
"It's also a very time consuming sport.
Not only do you have to keep yourself in
shape as an athlete, but you have to keep
your horses in shape and spend time train-
ing them."
It can also be dangerous.
"They say that bull riding is the most dan-
gerous sport in the world, and we have ninth
through 12th graders doing it," Peaden said.
"With goat tying, when you're stepping off
horses that are running quickly, there can be
ankle and knee injuries, and with team rop-
ing, kids can get fingers caught in the coils.
Horses can slip and fall while turning barrels
and poles. Each event has its own level of
danger.
"But it goes with the territory. It's a sport
you really have to love, and these kids do.
I have a son who is a bull rider at a profes-
sional level. As a parent, I don't like that, but
it's what he wants to do and I understand
that "
Peaden said that while only one Florida
college offers rodeo scholarships, there are
many schools in Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama
and other states that do.
"I've never heard of college scouts com-
ing to Florida, but there are plenty of them
at the Nationals, as well as at the Shawnee
International Finals Youth Rodeo the week
before Nationals, so we will be at both." For

High School Rodeo Team, call Missie Peaden
