when he sent 13-year-old Ryan Nielson back
to detention and told him he cannot live in
his Crooked Creek neighborhood until his
case is resolved.
Judge Bryant returned the boy to the St.
Lucie Regional Juvenile Detention Center in
Fort Pierce due to his parent's alleged lack of
responsibility--not for anything the boy did.


"Other than riding his dirt bike, Mr. Niel-
son hasn't done anything wrong. But, his

handing down his ruling.
At the core of the judge's decision was

DARE helps students stay away from drugs


Okeechobee News


June 4, 2010


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County fifth graders were
treated to a morning of excitement and edu-
cation as the annual DARE (Drug Abuse Re-
sistance Education) graduation was held at
the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center on Thurs-
day.
Posters drawn by various students lined
the arena with positive messages about
drugs, alcohol, and smoking.
One poster read, "Dare to unlock your
dreams or be captive." Another read, "One
time trying drugs is too many." A third read,
"We shouldn't have to dare you, just don't
do it." Another poster had the simple rhyme,
"Be cool, don't smoke fool."
The Okeechobee County Sheriffs Office
provides the teachers for the DARE classes


each year. At the DARE event, students also
got to learn about the Sheriffs K-9 unit, their
motorcycle and traffic unit, the special re-
sponse team, and other departments.
School Resource Officer Mark Roberts
said the kids really enjoy this event every
year. He said the program really helps im-
prove the relationship between the youth
and law enforcement in this community.
"All of our different units are involved,
from street crime to the dive team. The kids
are familiar with us, and when they see us
on the street they aren't afraid to approach
us.)
Kids were also thrilled to interact with the
DARE mascot Lion, Mccruff, and Vince and
Larry the crash dummies.
Roberts said kids really absorb a lot of
the information. Many times they have be-
liefs about drugs that are shattered once the
facts are taught to them. "I think this helps,"
he said. "It's a good program and it does an
awesome job to improve the relationship
between kids and law enforcement."
The guest speaker for the event this year
was Rick Bender, a former minor league
baseball player. He started to use spit tobac-
co when he was 12. At age 26, he was diag-
nosed with oral cancer. He ultimately lost a
third of his tongue, half his jaw and partial
use of his right arm.
"Obviously I was able to beat cancer," he
said. "I'm here to give young people tools
and information they can use to make better
choices than I did."


rov ievoc uu~ IvovYyDIounance IYvempny
Chris Rodriguez and Phil Murray shared time as the Dare Lion, the program's
mascot.


Mr. Bender said smokeless tobacco has
new candy-like flavors that are targeted for
youth. Those flavors include peach, berry,
and citrus. They taste like candy and mask
over the tobacco flavor. He said the product
is targeted at first time users and 90 percent
of all tobacco users tried them for the first
time by the age of 12.


Mr. Bender said he associated smokeless
tobacco use with the game of baseball and
regrets using the tobacco. "My message is if
you don't use tobacco, don't start. If you do,
quit right now. It's not a matter of will. How
long do you want to play the game before
you ultimately pay the price?"

Public Forum/Speak Out


Wildlife managers give it a fighting chance


4 Okeechobee News


Friday, June 4, 2010


Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the com-
munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
smpea%.theh d Acus opnas crt tly tak-

Troubled times
*On my way to town today, I came upon a
scene that seemed to be a metaphor for some
of our troubled times-a truck spraying poi-
so nm dmeo aeed mbethe sideaof thR road.
that we are out of balance with Mother Earth
and perhaps our relationships with each
other. In our hurry to save time, we kill and
destroy perhaps to improve what we call the
"bottom line," and we do not save anything-
not even time.

Reflections
*Finally, someone had the intestinal forti-
tude to come out and say what was necessary
about the Muslims religion. God Bless Rev.
Jim Dawson for his courage. We waited for
the media but found that was futile. They are
nothing more than an editorial for Obama and
his liberals. I grew up in this country and this
is not the nation I know. Our heritage is root-
ed in the Christian religion. Those who feel
this is an error need to go and live in one of
the Muslim nations. Then come back and talk
to me. I hope more of the ministries use the
pulpit to get this out. Politics is making it their
goal to change how we worship and what we
worship in. By the way, Rev. Jim Dawson does
not plagiarize. He does not have to.

Royal Concrete
*I think it is great news that Royal Con-
crete may be able to expand and offer more
jobs. I just hope that when they do their hir-
ing, they try to hire local folks first and that
they carefully check to make sure everyone
they hire is in this country legally and has a
work permit. We have local workers who
need jobs so I hope this is done right and that
they offer decent wages and benefits. If they
just bring in people from somewhere else to
work here, that doesn't help Okeechobee.


tees are air-breathers and have to come to the
surface to breathe frequently."
Therefore, the manatee, along with dol-
phins and whales, could be exposed to volatile
chemicals during inhalation, Knox added.
It is said that with a natural phenomenon,
animals know instinctively what to do. During
the tsunami in 2008, very few animals per-
ished. The wildlife fled for higher ground long
before the ocean surge wiped out their habitat.
It's speculated they could feel the earth's vibra-
tions for the coming earthquake. Folks in the
Everglades say wildlife are often the harbinger
of impending storms. Gators head for their
holes in the mud and birds hunker down or
flee, sensing what they need to do to survive
the floodwaters and high winds.
But what's a pelican to do when the oil
arrives onshore unannounced and covers its
home, food and breeding grounds? It gets
oiled.
"Individuals should not go out on the
beaches to attempt to rescue these animals,"
Knox warned. "The oil covering them is highly
toxic, and untrained individuals could do more
harm than good to the wildlife by adding to
their distress."
We all want to help, and the FWC appre-
diates all the folks who have stepped forward
to assist. However, rescuing wildlife requires
skill and knowledge of the species. Shorebirds
and seabirds are vulnerable right now because
many of them are nesting. Sea turtles are nest-
ing now and those eggs will begin hatching in
July. We can all help by staying out of areas
clearly marked as nesting areas and refrain
from driving vehicles on the beach. Go to My-
FWC.com/OilSpill for complete information
and links on the oil spill.
Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research teamed
up with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to
oversee the wildlife-rehabilitation response
if needed in Florida. A process has been put
in place for becoming a trained wildlife reha-
bilitator in this crisis. Also, Volunteer Florida is
keeping tabs on opportunities for volunteers
who are needed for other meaningful activities
relative to the oil spill. Visit www.volunteerflor-
idadisaster.org for more information.
Florida has been given the luxury of time
to prepare if the oil should make its way to our
shores. Let's use the time wisely and work to-
gether to save our valuable resources.


By Patricia Behnke
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
I find myself unable to write about anything
but the oil spill this month as my colleagues
at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) prepare for what might
happen in the coming weeks. As I prepared to
finish the column, scientists concluded that the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill is the worst in our
nation's history.
For more than a month, FWC biologists and
support staff have prepared for the potential ef
feet oil might have on our wildlife living near
the coast of Florida. So far, Florida has seen no
impacts as of June 1. We hope it remains that
way, but if the tide should change, the FWC
and partner agencies stand ready to do what
they can to lessen the impacts on our precious
fish and wildlife resources.
Oil spills in other parts of the world give
our biologists some basis for determining how
wildlife might be affected. Direct contact with
oil or consumption of oil-tainted items can
cause some serious health problems for wild-
life, from skin irritations to organ failure and
breathing problems, all of which can lead to
death,
The Washington Post reported some of the
early impacts seen by the wildlife in one area
of the Louisiana coast: shorebirds dunking
teir leads n the oilyp wer,strn to wash fl p
their wings
"There are few studies conducted on the
long-term effects of oil on wildlife," said Carol
Knox, one of the oil response wildlife leads
and manatee management coordinator for the
FWC. "It's been documented that mangroves,
corals, shorebirds and other wildlife can die
from the effects. However, we don't have any
data on manatees, but we can make theoreti-
cal assumptions, because we know that mana-

that jobs that would have previously gone to
the kids are filled by adults.

Terror alerts
*I received this email from a friend and
thought it was worth passing along. The
French government announced yesterday that
it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to
"Hide". The only two higher levels in France
are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise
was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed
Fanc 's white flag factory, efecie 1 ptars t

only the French who are on a heightened level
of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from
"Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate
Military Posturingt." Two more levels remain:
"Ineffective C:om~bat Operations" and "Change
Sides." The Germans also increased their alert
state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in
Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also
have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighboring
Country" and "Lose."
*I like Ron White's suggestion for the ter-
ror alerts: "buy a helmet" and "put on your
helmet.

Cell phoneS
*We are in the time of year when there
are a lot of school programs. Parents, please
turn off the cell phones. It is very rude to leave
your cell phone on during a school program,
and even ruder to answer it and carry on a
conversation while others are trying to hear
those on stage. If your calls can't wait, put the
phone on vibrate, and get up leave the room to
answer the phone. I hope that officials make

out--they will lose both the phone and their

The trooper said when he asked about
the accident Felt said he was not aware that
he was involved in an accident and "... that
he did not remember anything happening."
Trooper Buks report went on to state
that Mr. Wilde was taken to Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce with
severe head trauma. After being admitted
to the hospital, Mr. Wilde was in a coma,
placed on life support. He had also suffered
multiple abrasions.
The report did not state Mr. Wilde's cur-
rent condition or if he had returned to his
home in Sanford.
Evidence at the crash scene was compro-
mised when an Okeechobee man ignored
orders to stop and drove through the site
while officers were taking measurements
and documenting evidence.
Florencio Serrano, 19, N.W. Seventh Ave.,
was arrested at the scene on a felony charge
of tampering with evidence. He was also
charged with the misdemeanor of failure to
obey a law enforcement officer. He is being
held without bond in the county jail.
Serrano has since been arrested on war-
rants charging him with violating his proba-
tion, which stems from his 2009 conviction
for burglary of a conveyance, petit theft and
resisting a law enforcement officer without
violence. He was originally sentenced to
serve two months in the county jail on those
charges and then 22 months on probation.
He is being held without bond on the
probation violation charges also.

samples were taken af-
ter the accident, and that
both samples indicated
that Felt had a blood alco-
hol level of 0.221. (Under
Florida law, it is illegal to
operate a motor vehicle -
with a blood alcohol level
of 0.08 or higher.) ?
According to the troop- Leroy Edward
er's report Felt pulled out Felt
of the Eagles Club, 9985
U.S. 441 N., at 8:34 p.m. on Friday, March
19, and was turning left to travel north on
U.S. 441 N. Felt reportedly turned his white
pickup directly into the path of a southbound
Harley Davidson motorcycle ridden by Rod-
ney P. Wilde, 56, of Sanford.
Mr. Wilde tried to stop the 2008 Harley he
was riding but the sudden stopping maneu-


ver caused the motorcycle to skid and then
roll over. The motorcycle struck the 1995
Ford pickup and Mr. Wilde was thrown un-
der the truck.
The left rear tire of Felt's truck ran over
Mr. Wilde and he was dragged into the
northbound lane of the highway, the report
stated.
Felt, continued the report, did not stop. He
was later found at his home by Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) deputies Bri-
an Cross and Matthew Hurst, stated Trooper
Burk. The trooper went on to state that the
two deputies found damage on the pickup
that was consistent with a traffic crash.
When Trooper Burk arrived at Felt's
home he stated that Felt "... appeared to be
intoxicated as I detected a strong odor of an

teacher at Osceola Middle School.
Mrs. Nielson later testified that she has
since quit teaching.
"My intention was that Mr. Nielson would
be with a parent or responsible adult," Judge
Bryant said Thursday of his order. "I never
intended for a 19-year-old or a high school
student to fit that.
Nick had told the judge that he was still a
high school student.
While on the witness stand, Mrs. Niel-
son said when Ryan was first released, his
paternal grandmother, Ruby Nielson, was
flown in from Kansas to stay in the home
and supervise the boy. However, added Mrs.
Nielson, the grandmother developed heart
problems and had to return to the Sunflow-
er State to see her doctor.
Mrs. Nielson then contacted a cousin
in Pennsylvania, who agreed to stay in the
home and supervise the boy. Since the
cousin is afraid of flying, she and a friend
were going to drive to Okeechobee and they
planned to be here by Thursday, May 27.
However, on the way they were injured in
an automobile accident in Georgia and had
to return to Pennsylvania.
Ryan's mother told Mr. Kirschner that she
found out her cousin had to return home on
Friday, May 28.
So, the teacher and part-time real estate
salesperson, left Ryan with his two older
brothers. She testified that it was her under-
standing that Alex could watch Ryan in an
emergency.
Ms. Washington had testified earlier that
Alex was not approved to supervise his
younger brother except in an emergency or
an unavoidable situation.
Mrs. Nielson also testified that she did not
learn about Friday's incidents until the fol-
lowing Monday.
Under cross examination, Mr. Albnight
asked Mrs. Nielson if she could have called
into work and told them that she needed to
stay home because she had no approved
supervision for her son. She agreed that she
could have, but didn't.
"Why didn't you find out anything about
this until Monday?" queried the prosecutor.
"No one told me she replied.
She said she didn't know what had taken


place until she was called by Mr. Kirschner.
She went on to say that she had told Ryan
he could not be riding his dirt bike.
"Obviously, he did while you were away, "
stated Mr. Albright.
To that, Mrs. Nielson could only say
",yes."
"Did it ever occur to you to call her (Ms.
Washington) and tell her you were leaving
Ryan alone with an 18- and a 19-year-old
boy?" asked Mr. Albright.
"No," answered Mrs. Nielson quietly.
Once testimony had been completed,
Judge Bryant wasted little time in issuing his
ruling.
He said when he released Ryan into the
custody of his parents he expected "some-
One with experience in supervising children"
to watch over the boy. And while he could
"appreciate the Nielson's situation," Judge
Bryant made it clear in his opinion Ryan was
not being properly supervised and that his
parents had been "irresponsible."
He then ruled that Ryan be returned to
the detention center and that he must stay
there until the case is resolved at trial, or the
family moves out of the Crooked Creek sub-
division.
"Mr. Nielson cannot live in that neighbor-
hood until the case is resolved," the judge
ordered.
With Ryan sobbing at the defense table,
Judge Bryant ruled that if Ryan is released
from the detention center the Department
of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) will no longer have
the authority to decide who can be a super-
vising adult. Judge Bryant said only he, or a
judge sitting in for him, will make that deter-
mination.
The judge ordered that another hearing
on the case will be held Tuesday, June 8, at
9 a.m. State law requires a status hearing ev-
ery 72 hours on a juvenile case.
In a previous hearing, three court-ap-
pointed psychologists had rendered opin-
ions that Ryan is currently incompetent to
stand trial. Judge Bryant said the doctors'
reports did not address all of his questions
so he has ordered them to issue supplemen-
tal reports to explain Ryan's level of alleged
incompetence and what type of treatment is
needed.

19-year-old brother, Alex.
The neighbor testified that around 1 p.m.
that afternoon her 9-year-old son ran into the
house and exclaimed: "They have a gun!
"He was scared," she told Assistant
State Attorney Ashley Albright. "He just ran
into the room and said: 'Mom, they have a
gun!"'"
It was pointed out by defense attorney
Jonathan Jay Kirschner that Ryan never had
possession of the rifle and that only Nick and
the other boy shot the gun.
Nick testified that he was shooting at
soda cans in a dirt pile.
With Nick on the witness stand, Mr. Al-
bright pointed out that Ryan had allegedly
threatened to kill the young victims if they
said anything about the reported incidents.
"Do you think it was a good idea to have
that gun?" asked the prosecutor.
"No, it wasn't," answered Nick.
The neighbor also video taped Ryan rid-
ing dirt bike in his back yard later that same
afternoon, which under the court's condi-
tions of his release pending trial, he was not
allowed to do.
Ryan's probation officer, Sonya Washing-
ton, testified that Ryan and his parents had
been told that Ryan was not to be riding the
motorcycle in the yard where the victims
could see him.
Ryan was arrested in December of 2009
and charged with seven counts of sexual
battery and six counts of lewd and lascivi-
ous molestation. Following his arrest he was
sent to the juvenile detention center.
Judge Bryant was then mandated by the
4th District Court of Appeals to release the
then-12-year-old boy from detention. So, in
an April 8 hearing, the judge ordered Ryan's
release from the Fort Pierce facility but stipu-
lated that: he be confined to his home un-
less in the company of his parents or an ap-
prove adult); he could not com ewithinolu

not go into his front yard; and, he must be
under adult supervision 24 hours a day, sev-
en days a week
It was this last stipulation where Ryan's
parents failed, according to Judge Bryant.
On that Friday afternoon, there was no
adult supervision in the Nielson home. Both
of Ryan's parents, Roderick and Faith, were
at their respective jobs-he is an over-the-
road truck driver and she was a substitute

By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Fishermen around Florida are assisting the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) by filling out surveys on bass fish-
ing. The information gathered, along with scien-
tific information, will help create a draft Florida
Black Bass Management Plan.

Florid as h u di pte 's eF shns aabp tsah
of the World," in addition to being the "Fishing
Capital of the World "
Florida currently is the "Fishing Capital of
the World" based on the number of anglers
amount of time spent fishing, economic im
pact and tourists who take advantage of our
resources. The most recent National Survey of
Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recre-
ation again ranked Florida No. I in in-state an-
glers (2.8 million), angler expenditures ($4.4 bil-
lion), angler-supported jobs (75,068) and state
and local taxes generated by sport fishing ($440
million). In addition, Florida has far more Inter-
national Game Fish Association (IGFA) records
than any other state or country.
Similarly, Florida produces many of the
world's premier bass fisheries, and bass an-
glers spend more than 14 million days each
year here, which generates $1.25 billion for the
state's economy.
The Florida largemouth bass population is
genetically unique and has been stocked world-
wide because of its potential for rapid growth
to trophy size (more thanl10 pounds). Moreover,
Florida has shoal, spotted and Suwannee bass,
each of which exist in discrete areas and require


specific habitat and food bases to maintain their
populations. Programs such as the Black Bass
Grand Slam promoted in BassMaster Magazine
are drawing more attention to these limited
populations-necessitating greater attention to
conservation practices.
Florida's native and widely dispersed popu-
lations of black bass are available in thriving
natural habitats within a 30- to 60-minute drive
from anywhere in the state, except for the Keys.
BASS' top 25 bass of all time now includes 20
fish from California, two from Florida, two from
Japan and one from Georgia. In both California
and Japan, the bass in question are imports that
came from Florida. To make the most of your
fishing license dollars and federal excise taxes
on fishing tackle and motor boat fuels, the FWC
is beginning to hold meetings with a citizens'
Technical Advisory Group to look at the results
of the first two waves of public surveys. Visit
MyFWC.com/BassPlan Survey to see the pre-
liminary survey results, and sign up to review
and comment on the first full draft plan, due
out sometime in August. The final plan is antici-
pated to be approved in early January 201 1 after
additional public input.
To encourage bass anglers to catch and
properly report Florida's next state record bass,
BountyFishing is hosting a Million Dollar Bass
Bounty. The contest is open to all anglers legally
fishing in any public body of water in Florida
from July 5 to Aug. 1. Sign-up costs $7 per day
or $19 for one week, but the first 1,000 entrants
will receive a 50-percent discount and pay just
$38 for all four weeks. To sign up for the Florida
Million Dollar Bass Bounty or a free June fishing
tournament, visit www.bountyfishing.com/FL.


BountyFishing.com provides anglers an op-
portunity to compete in fishing contests to win
cash and prizes from their favorite fishing spots.
To promote catch-and-release fishing, Bounty-
Fishing uses FBI-strength image-analysis soft-
ware to validate winners based on catch pho-
tos. For a free trial offer of an Internet-managed
fishing tournament, visit www.bountyfishing.
com/FL. A part of your tournament fees goes to
the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, Inc., a non-
profit, public-support organization that enhanc-
es FWC conservation efforts. However, neither
the FWC nor the state of Florida endorses any
individual company.
BountyFishing will share information with
the FWC as part of the Black Bass Management




.Z


Plan initiative. FWC biologists are certain a lar-
gemouth bass exceeding the current official re-
cord of 17 pounds, 4 ounces (set in July 1986)
is waiting to be caught. In 2008, an 18-pound,
8-ounce bass was caught, photographed and
released in Florida. It exceeded the record but
was not certified by an FWC biologist; nor was
a 20-pound, 2-ounce hawg hooked in 1923,
or several other bass reported to FWC's "Big
Catch" angler-recognition program.
Instant licenses are available at MyFWC.

Adam Tewksbury battled through the in-
jury bug during his senior year. A fractured
finger cost him about a month and by the
time he was back healthy and in a groove'
the season was over.
Tewksbury made up for part of that frus-
tration Wednesday when he cracked a dou-
ble and a homerun at Digital Domain Park
in Port St. Lucie to lead the North Team to
a 12-4 victory in the Third Annual Treasure
Coast High School Baseball Classic.

making some adjustments at the plate. It
feels really good," he added.


Other Brahmans in the game included
Coach Dylan Tedders, and seniors Aaron
Suarez, Jonathan Crawford and Cameron
Tewksbury.
Coach Tedders said the North squad had
lost the first two games in 2008 and 2009
and wanted to get on the winning side. "It
was a great day today. We knew we had
some pitching this year. For Adam to do
what he did was outstanding. It was just an
awesome day for him. I think the guys rep-
resented Okeechobee well."
Cameron got roughed up in the first in-
ning as he allowed four hits and three earned
runs. He was victimized by a couple of in-
field hits. Crawford came on in the sixth in-
ning and allowed one earned run. He struck
out two. Crawford was the winning pitcher
as the North rallied with four runs in the top
of the fifth, and three more in the sixth.
Tewksbury delivered a two run double in
the fifth to score his brother Cameron and
Dominic Laporte of John Carroll High. In
the sixth Tewskbdury ht athlre su nhbon"E

as he reached base on a one out walk.
Tewksbury remarked that it was an honor
simply to play on a major league field which
serves as the spring training home of the


New York Mets. "It was pretty big just to get

Okeechobee News

Jeff Wait believes that Okeechobee will
soon become a household name in the state
of Florida for outdoor sports enthusiasts.
"I think Okeechobee will be known over
the next few years as the place for outdoor
sports, including horseback riding, airboat
rides, bass fishing, kayaking, you name it,"
said Wait, manager of Okeechobee Shoot-
ing Sports.
"I believe that this is a city that will really
come to the forefront. It's at the top of the
Everglades and it's very centrally located be-
tween South Florida, Central Florida and the


West Coast of Florida, which puts it within
driving distance for a lot of people who want
to experience a complete shooting sports fa-
cility."
Wait is certainly doing his part to help
Okeechobee rise in stature as an outdoor
sports mecca. Established in September
2009, Okeechobee Shooting Sports draws
shooters from South and Central Florida,
and Florida's West Coast, for target shooting,
trap shooting, cowboy action and advanced
tactical, with popular competitive matches
occurring on weekends.


"There was a great need for this and
Okeechobee is an ideal location," Wait said.
"There are very few places like this left in
the state, especially in South Florida. It's
been very well received by the people in
Okeechobee, and it brings in outside money
to the county."..
Shooters may take their own ammuni-
tion and targets to the facility, located at 7055
N.E. 48th St. in Okeechobee, or purchase
them at the pro shop. Okeechobee Shoot-
ing Sports also offers gunsmith services. It
is open Thursday through Sunday from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m., and is available for hosting
training events, club shoots, parties and
fundraisers.
Okeechobee Shooting Sports facilities ac-
commodate:
Shotgun -skeet, trap and 5-stand;
Rifle -25, 50, 100 and 200 yards;
Pistol -5, 10, 15, 25 and 50 yards; and,
Cowboy Action -full service metal tar-

Sharp shooters win challenge
Recently six young men from Okeechobee represented the southeast region
of Florida by competing in the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC).
The competition put on by the FWC and NRA was held in Ocala. The mem-
bers had to compete in a series of timed events including shooting shotgun,
muzzleloaders, rifles and archery at moving and stationary targets, from all
of the different shooting positions (prone, sitting, kneeling, standing). They
also had to compete in wildlife identification (tracks, bones, feathers, furs
and skat), mapping and orienteering, and hunter safety including ethics. Al-
though this was their first year competing, the young men won the State
Senior Division. Pictured with their chief instructor Don Sellers are (back
row) Travis Muldoon, Jake Menendez, Richard Sellers. (front row) Joseph
Menendez, Trenton Gainer and Alex Pluskott.

This surnrer, Okeechobee youth will
have a chance to learn all about horses.
The UF/IFAS Okeechobee County 4-H Pro-
grain, along with the Okeechobee Agri-Civic
Center and the Children's Services Council
of Okeechobee, will be offering the Fourth
Annual "Just Horsing Around" Horse Day
Carnp. The camp includes three different
weeks of fun packed learning! Hurry in and
register now. Carnp is filling up fast!
The first week offered will be held from
June 21-25. This will be the "everything"
week. Campers will learn all they need to
know to take care of a horse as well as re-
ceive expert riding instruction. This week
will give youth the horsemanship and riding
skills they need to carry into their event of
choice. This week of camp is great for begin-
ners just starting off or advanced riders who
need to polish up their skills. This is a great
"kick-off" week for campers who want to at-
tend the second and third weeks of camps.
The first week will include visits from
professionals such as veterinarians, farriers,
nutritionists, horse trainers and much more.
Daily riding instruction will be useful to all
riders, beginner to advanced.
The second week of horse camp, June
28-July 2, will be the Performance Horse
Events Carnp. Youth that attend the second
week will learn about different equine dis-
ciplines, such as ranch sorting, dressage,
reining and much more. Campers will learn
the basic rules of each event as well as the
special equipment each discipline requires.


Professionals will first demonstrate, than as-
sist campers as they try their hand at each
event. They will also learn what it takes to
train a horse for each sport, the nutritional
and physical requirements of the horse,
and basic care for the performance horse.
Campers will also have a chance to ask the
professionals questions about their specific
sport.
The purpose of this camp is to expose
young equestrians to different disciplines
that they might not normally think about.
This is a good way to help the young riders
find a sport they might be very interested in.
This camp gives then a chance to try a little
something different everyday. After teaching
the campers everything we can, they will
have a chance to show us what they learned
at the fun day on Friday.
The third week of horse camp, July 12-
16, will be the Rodeo Carnp. Campers who
will attend this week will learn about barrel
racing, pole bending, goat tying, breakaway
and calf roping. Campers will not only learn
to do these events, but they will learn the
competition rules, how to choose a perfor-
Inance prospect, equipment, training and
conditioning of the horse, nutrition and care
of the performance horse and much more.
Everyone will have a chance to try every-
thing, barrel racers will get to rope and rop-
ers will get to barrel race! Campers will learn
different exercises to prepare their horse for
competition and how to handle warrn-up
and planning while at the competition.

The butterfly garden in downtown Okeechobee (above), and the entrance to the
Okeechobee High School Agriculture Complex (below) are two local examples
Of Florida-Friendly Landscaping.



OC RA get s read for all star season


June 4, 2010


Okeechobee News


The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has enjoyed ongoing
partnerships with the Okeechobee County
School District and the Okeechobee County
Extension Office to share principles of water
conservation, water quality and agricultural
education with local adults and students.
Most recently, Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ing'" projects were installed at the Okeecho-
bee High School (OHS) Agriculture Complex
and in Flagler Park in downtown Okeecho-
bee. At area elementary schools, students
learned principles of sustainable gardening
in small places through a project named
"Wall of Plants."
The OHS project, funded by a $3,000
grant from the SFWMD, has raised student
awareness of water conservation principles
while bringing environmental benefits to the
landscape.
In downtown Okeechobee, a butterfly


garden now provides a restful spot to sit
and enjoy the day while watching butterflies
enjoy the Florida-Friendly Landscaping'".
Also made possible with grants from the SF-
WMD, the butterfly garden was sponsored
by Okeechobee Main Street and Waste
Management. It was designed and planted
by Okeechobee Master Gardeners and will
continue to be maintained by the Master
Gardeners and their 4-H Club friends.
"Florida-Friendly Landscaping" means
quality landscapes that conserve water,
protect the environment, are adaptable to
local conditions and are drought tolerant.
This type of landscaping includes planting
the right plant in the right place, efficient
watering, appropriate fertilization, mulch-
ing, attraction of wildlife, responsible man-
agement of yard pests, recycling yard waste,
reduction of stormwater runoff and water-
front protection. Additional components in-


clude practices such as landscape planning
and design, soils analysis, appropriate use of
solid waste compost, minimizing the use of
irrigation and proper maintenance.
In 2009, the Florida Legislature passed
a statute regarding water conservation and
Florida-Friendly Landscaping in 2009. This
statute states that Florida-Friendly Land-
scaping'" contributes to the conservation,
protection and restoration of water in an
effort to meet the water needs of the state
of Florida in a manner that will supply ad-
equate and dependable supplies of water
where needed. Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ing is an essential part of water conservation
and water quality protection and restoration
planning.
The newly completed construction at
the OHS Agriculture Complex afforded a
perfect opportunity to bring attention to this
important state effort. Eucalyptus mulch do-


nated by 7L Brands LLC, a division of Lykes
Bros. Inc., provides weed control and soil
moisture regulation. Drought-tolerant, na-
tive plants purchased from Tree Locators
Inc. were utilized in the design. Cap Stone
Industries of Central Florida Inc. donated a
locally quarried, indigenous material known
as Callida Stone for natural walls and plant
borders. Rain barrels were added to an exist-
ing gutter and downspout system at the Ag-
riculture classroom building to collect water
for irrigating the landscape. High school ag-
riculture students, as well as staff from the
schools and the SFWMD, provided the labor
for the plant installation.
The project provides a real-life example
to Okeechobee County students and the
community at large that native plants are at-
tractive additions to any landscape. The proj-
ect is also an excellent demonstration that
planting right will help to conserve water.
