19th annual 2010 Big 0 Hike to begin on Nov. 20


The 19th annual hike around Lake
Okeechobee will begin Saturday, Nov. 20,
promptly at 8 a.m. from the Pahokee Marina
and will finish up, back in Pahokee, nine
days later on Sunday, Nov. 28.
One hundred and ten miles in 9 days; just
one-step-at-a-time, one-day-at-a-time. Daily
hikes range from 9.5 to 15 miles and are
done at the individual hiker's pace.
Each day's segment starts at sunrise, ex-
cept for day one, and finishes by noon at
one of the eight trail-heads around the lake.
A shorter introductory hike, affectionately
named the "Wimp Walk," of only 3.5 miles
from Pahokee to Canal Point, is available on
opening day.
Everyone is invited to join in for a day, a
weekend or more. There are no fees and you
do not have to be a member of the Florida
Trail Association to join in.
This hike is not a backpacking ordeal.
Only day packs are needed. Gear is left be-
hind in campgrounds, motels or vehicles.
Daily hikes are held in the early part of the
day and afternoons are for relaxing or sight-
seeing. Dinners are usually enjoyed at a vari-
ety of local restaurants.
This yearly event is always held during
Thanksgiving Week and hikers, friends and
family traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving


dinner at the Clewiston Inn. There have
been as many as 90 people from the group
there during dinner.
Days are spent hiking the Lake Okeecho-
bee Scenic Trail, which is a major segment of
the 1,400 mile Florida National Scenic Trail.
Join with us and be one of the few people
who have experienced the panorama that
the dike affords, a 360 degree view of the
lake and lakeshore.
How many people, even residents of the
Glades, have seen the vistas all around the
Big Lake? Riding in a car is not the same as
walking 35 feet, on average, above the sur-
rounding terrain. In the Glades this is like
mountain climbing. The views are spec-
tacular. Farm, cattle and urban areas pass by
slowly and hikers have a chance to take it all
in at a leisurely pace.
From a modest start, with eight hikers
in 1992, each year has seen the number of
participants increase to more than several
hundred hikers and well wishers on open-
ing day.
For two men, this will be their 19th con-
secutive year of walking in circles. Paul Cum-
mings and Gordon Johnson have done every
hike. Adding this year's Big "0" Hike to their
total, they will each have walked 2,090 miles
from Pahokee to Pahokee.


Accident on

Fire damages home

on S.E. 26th Street

By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Fire Rescue said a lo-
cal home was extensively damaged after a fire
at 4016 S.E. 26th Street on Oct. 18.
Lt. Robert Banfield said firemen responded
just before 4 p.m. and saw smoke exit out the
eaves and other openings in the structure.
They quickly protected adjacent homes and
made an interior attack to knock down the
fire.
The Fire report said six firemen were on the
scene for close to three hours. An estimate of
property damage was not immediately avail-
able.
Lt. Banfield said the east bedroom suffered
heavy smoke and fire damage. There was heat
and smoke damage to other adjacent rooms.
The home was owned by Clarence Barrett. The
American Red Cross local Okeechobee office
assisted the family in their time of need. Ap-
proximately 1,000 gallons of water was used
to put out the flames. There were no injuries
reported. Fire originated in a bedroom.

Trail Association, the volunteer organization

On Friday, October 15th, my friends, co-workers and
acquaintances held a benefit Bar-B-Que for me.
To those who so generously gave their time, made
contributions or simply enjoyed a great meal, I would
like to say a very special thank you.
I have lived in Okeechobee all my life and have witnessed
the generosity of this community many times, but could
never imagine the outpouring of love and support that I
would receive from this benefit.
Special people like you, who care for others with so much
warmth and kindness, make such a wonderful difference. I
hope each of you know how special you are and how
very much you are appreciated.
May your kindness return to you in the same beautiful
way it was offered!

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
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

Customer service is not an option
I purchased a pull behind wagon for my
riding lawn mower. I took it out to the prairie
where I have my garden and used it once. A
few weeks later I pulled it out to use it and the
right tire was flat. As I pulled it out thinking I
would air it up I noticed that it was filled with
green goop and also had a plug in it. When I
purchased the wagon it was supposed to be
"new." I took the tire back to the store and
after waiting for the girl behind the counter
to finish reading her paper and ignoring me,
I explained that I had purchased the wagon
and that it was sold to be with a defaulted tire.
She was extremely rude and said, "How do I
know you didn't just pick up the tire some-
where and bring it in and make it my prob-
lem." Well customer service that was not!
She refused to help me so I called the corpo-
rate office and have to give the store manager
48 hours to return my call. Needless to say I
will never purchase anything from that store
again. If these stores plan to stay in business,
they may want to train their employees on
being courteous, helpful and efficient.

Foul mouths at the ball field
When my kids were little and played
ball, it was always the coach's responsibility
to make sure parents/guests were kept in line.
If a parent broke the rules, they were asked to
leave. If guests were with the parents, it was
some what understood that the parents were
responsible for the behavior of their guests.
Now, if it's just a bunch of kids sitting there
watching a game and using this type of lan-
guage, then the coach needs to walk over to
them and ask them to stop, or they will be
escorted off the property. There are way too
many young kids in the stands for this type of
behavior to be going on. I would not hesitate
to ask individuals to stop using this type of
language.
A lot of these kids hear that language
at home from their parents and siblings, so
its only normal talk for them. I hear firsthand
how some parents talk in front of their kids
and don't think a thing about it.


If no one corrects the kids and explains
that this language is offensive, how will they
learn? Obviously their parents are not doing
a good job teaching them about these things
or they would not be using those words in
the first place. I think OCRA should have a
written policy given out to all coaches and all
coaches should enforce it-no bad language
tolerated. Pass out the policy to the parents as
well. Then if someone starts spewing this filth,
a gentle reminder is in order and if it doesn't
stop, then throw them off the premises.
Halloween
Early in the evening the party at the Agri-
Civic Center is not too bad with going to the
booths, but when the place gets crowded
kids stand in line quite awhile to play a game
and then get a piece of candy. I heard they ran
out of candy last year. They started out with a
big coffin full of candy but it goes fast when
there are thousands of kids. Those who plan
to take their kids to the event should help
make it a success by donating candy to the
event. The business sponsors can't do it all.
As a parent, I want to thank Main Street,
the Sheriff's Office and the other sponsors
of the community Halloween festival at the
Agri-Civic Center. It is a great community
event. I do agree that everyone who plans to
go should help out by donating a big bag of
candy.
Since Halloween is on a Sunday this
year, I wish they had planned the event at the
Agri-Civic center for Saturday. Many people
have church services on Sunday evening.
That is something to consider in the future,
to move the party to Saturday if the holiday
lands on a Sunday.
I know the Taylor Creek Bass Club al-
ways has their fishing tournament on the last
Sunday in October, but having it on Hallow-
een is going to force some families to choose
between that event and the Halloween party.
Even though the times would allow a family
to do both, that is just too much for a fam-
ily with small children to manage in one day.
Little kids are going to be worn out after the
fishing tournament and then get all hyper
about Halloween. Also, considering how
little there is to do in Okeechobee, why not
spread out the fun? Why plan two major kids
events for the same day?
I know rain was a factor, but I liked the
Halloween party better when they had it at
Flagler Park. The Agri-Civic Center is not well
designed for large crowds to move in and
out. There is always a bottleneck right at the
entrance.

When is an accident not an accident?


As I See It

By Rodney Barreto, Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
Hunting season is here again, and that
means we'll likely see reports of people
shooting each other, shooting themselves
or falling out of tree stands. This is not slap-
stick. It is a tragedy, because unfortunate
incidents such as these are preventable.
Law enforcement first investigates
hunting-related fatalities as homicides, not
accidents. A hunting fatality last fall was no
different. A man aimed and pulled the trig-
ger. He thought it was a deer coming out
of the brush, but it was a human. Police
determined the incident was not a criminal
homicide, so no charges were filed.
One of the 10 Commandments of Gun
Safety:
Always identify your target before
touching the trigger.
The victim, by the way, wasn't wearing
hunter orange. It wasn't required on pri-
vate land, but still ...
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) law enforcement of-
ficers respond to all kinds of preventable
hunting incidents, which is why hunter
safety courses are so important.
Hunters seeking white-tailed deer are
involved in the most hunting incidents, be-
cause this is the most-sought species.
By age, the biggest group of shooters
written up in incident reports consists of
seasoned, 40-49 year-olds (25 percent in
two recent years). Statistics show a clear
problem with careless handling of fire-
arms, including dropping them.
In 2008-2009, seven hunters wounded
themselves. A hunter walking through the
woods with a loaded rifle slipped as he
tried to cross a rain-swollen ditch and shot
his foot when his rifle discharged. Another
incident involved a man in a party of three
hunters and 25 hunting dogs who was try-
ing to catch a runaway dog and was shot
by his own shotgun. He laid it down before
the chase, but another dog stepped on the
trigger, and the shotgun went off. Buckshot
struck the man's hand, as well as one of
the dogs.
Here's a troubling statistic. In addition to
eight hunting incidents involving firearms
last year, there were four that involved falls

Our Purpose...
The Okeechobee News is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a
unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a
mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the
community Since no dividends are paid, the company
is able to thrive on profit margins below industry stan-
dards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in
Independent's mission of journalistic service,
commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of
the U.S. Constitution, and support of the community's
deliberation of public issues.

We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust
*To help our community become a better place to
live and work, through our dedication to
conscientious journalism.
* To provide the information citizens need to make
their own intelligent decisions about public issues.


from tree stands. All four reports state,
"The hunter was not using a Fall-Arrest
System/Full-Body Harness." Unfortunately,
one incident was fatal.
The first victim was an archery hunter.
The 33-year-old was setting up a ladder
stand and adjusting the strap when the
stand tilted; he fell 17 feet and broke his
leg.
Also last fall, the strap holding a hunt-
er's climbing stand broke, and he fell 25
feet, broke an ankle and had to hobble for
three hours to get help.
Another hunter climbed to the top rung
of her stand ladder and grabbed something
to pull herself up. It gave, and she fell, land-
ing flat on her back. She was airlifted from
the woods for treatment.
If a tree stand isn't properly secured to a
tree, hunters can fall to their death, as hap-
pened in the fourth tree stand incident.
Despite these tragedies, the good news
is that education is paying off. According
to the FWC's 2009-2010 Florida Hunting
Incident Report, the number of hunting
incidents and fatalities per 100,000 hunt-
ing licenses generally decreased from 1980
to 2010 -the decreases showing up after
mandatory hunter education began in
1991 for everyone 16 years old or older and
born after May 31, 1975.
Hunting safely pays. Follow these other
commandments when handling firearms
or standing near someone handling them:
Always point the gun in a safe direc-
tion.
Presume every firearm is loaded.
Unload firearms when not in use.
Never point a gun at anything you
don't want to shoot. This includes never
using the scope as a pair of binoculars.
Don't climb a fence or tree or jump a
ditch with a loaded gun.
Never shoot at a flat, hard surface or
water. Bullets ricochet.
Make sure the barrel and action are
clear of obstructions.
Store firearms and ammunition sepa-
rately and safely.
Don't use alcohol or mood-altering
drugs before or during hunting.
Accidents do happen. However, many
hunting accidents could have been avoided
if the shooter followed the 10 Command-
ments of Gun Safety. Everyone should fol-
low these rules. For more information, go

FWC biologist honored


Recognized as one of the state's pre-

ogy, Donald Fox, a biological administrator
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC), was named
2010 Fisheries Biologist of the Year by the
Southeastern Association of Fish and Wild-
life Agencies. Fox, who has been with the
FWC for nearly 30 years, received the hon-
or last Tuesday at the association's annual
conference in Biloxi, Mississippi.
"The FWC has given me the opportunity
to pursue a career in natural resource man-
agement, a responsibility that I approach
with love and passion," said Fox. "Working
in the Kissimmee River/Lake Okeechobee/
Everglades system is challenging, but also

The students were originally charged as
juveniles and all but one of those charged
with felonies were taken to the St. Lucie Re-
gional Detention Center in Fort Pierce. The
remaining student, who was 18, was booked
into the Okeechobee County Jail.
Those sent to the juvenile detention cen-
ter then went before Okeechobee County
Judge Jerald Bryant for their detention hear-
ings. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Albright issued
adult felony arrest warrants for 11 of those
students. This move then took them out
of county court and placed them in circuit
court where their bonds were issued by Cir-
cuit Court Judge Robert Belanger.
At that point the students were arrested
on the adult charges and then incarcerated
in the county jail.
"They will now go through the court sys-
tem as adults," said Mr. Albright. "Each one
will be treated independently."
Mr. Albright explained that those students
who are still in juvenile court are there either
because of their age or because their alleged
crimes were less severe. Some of those were
arrested on misdemeanor drug charges.
When asked, Mr. Albright said he wasn't


extremely rewarding. I am deeply honored
to be recognized by SEAFWA, for I believe
there is no greater honor than to be recog-
nized by one's peers."
As a biological administrator for the
FWC's Division of Habitat and Species
Conservation, Fox manages the habitats
supported by Lake Okeechobee, the sec-
ond largest freshwater lake in the coun-
try. The lake and its associated marsh and
open-water habitats are home to rich and
dynamic fish and wildlife species, some of
which are listed as threatened and endan-
gered.
Additionally, the lake provides many
recreational and commercial opportuni-
ties, including fishing, boating, wildlife
viewing and duck hunting. These activities
generate significant revenue to the state
and local economy.
In recent years, Fox has led efforts to
design and implement multi-million-dollar,
habitat-enhancement projects benefitting
Okeechobee's fish and wildlife.
Mr. Fox has worked closely with the
FWC's partners to make substantial sci-
entific contributions to the understanding
of the lake's ecology and its conservation
needs. The lake, once a rapidly degrading
aquatic ecosystem, is slowly recovering.
Tim Breault, director of the FWC's Divi-
sion of Habitat and Species Conservation,
said, "We are extremely proud of Don and
the fact that he has been recognized by his
fellow professionals in the Southeast for
his commitment and contributions to Lake
Okeechobee restoration. Our citizens and
visitors are enjoying a healthier, cleaner
lake today, and this is largely due to Don's
dedication and diligence in managing the
fragile Lake Okeechobee ecosystem."


surprised that drugs were being sold on the
OHS campus.
"I was surprised at some of the types of
drugs (being sold) and was very surprised
they were so blatant and open," he said,
adding that some buys were made in open
spaces, such as the commons area, and
were easily visible to other students.
He did add, however, that the actions of
those other students did more than surprise
him.
"It seemed the other students just ignored
what was going on," he continued.
The prosecutor said those students who
were arrested on felony charges will go be-
fore Judge Belanger for arraignment, and
from there they will be set for docket call.
Normally, Mr. Albright will take plea of-
fers at arraignment. But as of Wednesday,
Oct. 20, he has not made or received any
such offers.
Mr. Albright also said that filing adult
charges on juveniles, which is also known
as a direct file, is a fairly common practice.
"We do that a lot," he said, "it just doesn't
get as much press coverage."
According to Clerk of the Courts records,
arraignment for the first nine students has
been set for 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
As of Thursday, Oct. 21, no arraignment date
had been set for the last two students who
were arrested Oct. 15 and 16.

plan would be cumbersome and costly. He
stated that, under the present process, the

Mr. Haas. "We just want to get in there and
build."
The city council voted to reaffirm the
original site plan and allow Mr. Hass to pro-
ceed with the original developer's agree-
ments with his new investors.
Turning to other business, the council
awarded a sole-source bid to Global Map-
ping for annual mapping services in the
amount of $8,800.
The council also held an executive ses-
sion on possible litigation concerning bill-
boards. The council decided to meet only
once a month during November and De-
cember, on Nov. 2 at 2 p.m. and Dec. 7 at
6 p.m.
Because the city's grant administrator,
Nancy Phillips, was not present, the coun-
cil took no action to apply for a Community
Development Block Grant.

Okeechobee airport taxiway


rehabilitation planned


On or about Oct. 25, 2010, Lynch Paving
& Construction Co., of Okeechobee, will
commence field activities to rehabilitate the
pavement, drainage, marking and lighting for
Taxiway A and C at the Okeechobee County
Airport. The existing pavement of Taxiway
A and C is the companion to Runway 5-23,
the Airport's primary runway, which has un-
dergone a series of rehabilitation projects.
The culmination of this paving program will
rehabilitate the remaining pavements at the
airport in excess of 20 years of age. It will
include rehabilitation of the pavement with
a length of approximately 5,000 feet plus
connectors and a width of 35 feet to accom-
modate the Aircraft Design Group (ADG) II
aircraft, including larger jets, to access the
runway and apron areas, both of which
have been upgraded to 60,000 pound dual
wheel capacity.
This project will better serve aviation cus-
tomers and provide a quality community fa-


cility. The total project cost of $2,192.881.00
is made possible through the continued sup-
port of the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) and Florida Department of Transpor-
tation (FDOT) -Aviation which have pro-
vided 100% Grant Funding; requires a zero
(0) match from the county.
The Taxiway A and C Rehabilitation Proj-
ect will be completed in scheduled phases
in order to provide the least impact as pos-
sible to the airport tenants, businesses, and
aviation customers.
Throughout construction, regular updates
will be provided to keep the public informed
of any modifications to the project schedule
and any impact these may have on the use
of the airfield. Schedules are available at the
Airport Terminal Building or call Kathy Scott,
Interim Airport & Industrial Park Manager
at 864-467-5505 to request a faxed/e-mailed
schedule.

IRSC celebrates 50 years of innovation


While the past 50 years have brought sig-
nificant change and progress to Okeecho-
bee County and Indian River State College,
one central fact remains unchanged: IRSC
makes possibilities a reality.
The commitment of IRSC administra-
tion, faculty and staff to the quality of life in
Okeechobee is evident in the continuing ex-
pansion of higher educational opportunities
in our community. IRSC first offered classes
in Okeechobee in 1975 in the old Pan Am
Building on Highway 1, and then moved to
a storefront location in town in 1976. Thanks
to the tireless efforts of educational pioneers
Judge William Hendry and Ben Dixon, the
Campus named in their honor opened in
1986, exemplifying IRSC's commitment to
quality education that is accessible and af-
fordable. A new era was launched in 2008
with the Williamson Education and Confer-
ence Center, a state-of-the-art venue for busi-
ness conferences and community events.
IRSC has enabled thousands of Okeecho-
bee residents to continue their education
beyond high school, increasing their earn-
ing power and helping them reach their full
potential. Okeechobee businesses, schools,
the hospital and health care agencies have


partnered with the College to produce a
well-prepared workforce that builds our
community.
This year alone, over 3,000 Okeechobee
residents were served by the Dixon Hendry
Campus. The campus was recognized by the
Florida Department of Education as a "best
practice site" for effectively supporting stu-
dents with a "personal touch." And it works!
Students find a friendly atmosphere where
their success comes first. As a result, IRSC
is the first choice for Okeechobee's college
bound high school seniors and the gateway
to a better life for hundreds of adults.
In recognition of the College's 50th Anni-
versary and its legacy of service, community
leaders have proclaimed October as "IRSC
Month in Okeechobee." Proclamations have
been issued by the City of Okeechobee,
Okeechobee County, and the Okeechobee
School Board recognizing IRSC's accom-
plishments and contributions.
These proclamations cite IRSC's vision,
leadership and progress from a small junior
college, into a comprehensive community
college, into one of Florida first state col-
leges with an array of Bachelor's Degree
programs.

Agri-Civic Center to host cross country race


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
As many as eight area high schools
could compete Saturday in the first annual
Running of the Bulls cross country race at
Okeechobee's Agri-Civic Center.
The county volunteered to provide the fa-
cility as part of their plan to increase public
users of the facility.
A 2.5 mile course has been mowed and
made ready for Saturday's race.
The race includes a girl's varsity race
which is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. The


boys' varsity race will follow immediately
followed by a junior varsity race.
Cross Country Coach Julie Bohannon
said she was really excited to organize the
race. She said teams from Fort Pierce, South
Fork, Port St. Lucie, and others have commit-
ted to compete.
"It will be good competition for us and
we'll get some good work in," she said.
Bohannon said a number of the runners
on the OHS team are excited to have the
chance to run in front of friends and fam-
ily. Normally the team has to travel between
one and three hours each Saturday to com-


Brahmans face Dwyer Panthers


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
This week the Okeechobee High School
Brahmans faces the Dwyer High School Pan-
thers.
Dwyer High School's football team is
expected to compete for the Class 4A State
Title this year. The Panthers gained national
attention already this season for a controver-
sial loss to Cleveland-Glenville in Ohio.
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson said Dw-
yer earned a hard lesson in that game be-
cause they left the fate of the game in the
hands of the officials. He said since that loss,
Dwyer has been a more disciplined and fo-
cused football team.
"What impresses me is the effort they put
in on every play. Athleticism is a waste if you
don't play hard. They play hard for one an-
other and have a lot of offensive weapons,"
he added.
Dwyer has many college quality players
like QB Jacoby Brissett who has thrown for
1,031 yards and 12 touchdowns. He's com-
pleted nearly 66 percent of his throws.
Shawn McClaine has rushed for 548
yards and eight scores. They've rushed for
over 900 yards as a team. Top receivers in-
clude Darrell Hunter who has five touch-
down catches. Nick O'Leary, the grandson
of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, has six
touchdown grabs.
All or most of these players will be seen
at major college programs in the next few
years.
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson said his
team is happy to get the opportunity to play
a talented team like this and won't back
down or do anything different.
He said the defense must make tackles
and contain Brissett in the pocket. He said
Brissett is especially dangerous when he
scrambles.
"We must match their effort. We must
play mistake free, and play four quarters. We
have a ton of respect for them and this is a
test for us, but we will show up and show no
fear," he added.
Jackson said his team also knows that
they can reach the post season if they can
somehow defeat Dwyer or Palm Beach

Lakes (1-6). He said Okeechobee players re-
alize the district games are important.
Jackson said he likes the fact that
Okeechobee has been more physical in the
past few games. He also said the team is
making fewer mistakes as he continues to
preach fundamentals and execution in prac-
tice.
The team is also pretty healthy for their
senior night game. A number of Brahmans
could play their last home game tonight. The
seniors include Ronald Jackson, Deforest
Shanks, Jessie Thomas, Alonzo Coleman,
Colby Frank, Eric McQueen, David Altman,
David Carter, Harrison O'Connor, Benjamin
Estey, Brant Harden, and Jochen Anglin.
Coach Jackson said he enjoyed work-
ing with this senior group and he predicted
many of them would be extremely success-
ful in life. Kickoff tonight is at 7 p.m. Senior
night ceremonies will begin promptly at 6:30
p.m. on the track in Brahman stadium.


pete in an event. Bohannon said this will be
the first chance some families have had to
watch their child run in person.
"I feel we're in a central location where
we could attract teams from Orlando to Mi-
ami. I feel it could become a good event for
the community," Bohannon added.
She also praised the facility manager Lar-
ry Davis for supporting the event and provid-
ing everything the team needed.
"It is absolutely a wonderful location and
a great course. We hope to get quite a big
audience," she added.
This year's boy's team has its eyes set
on another trip to the state finals. The girls'
team also has the talent this year to advance
past their district race.
Bohannon said she hoped to attract a

good crowd to the event on Saturday. She
advised spectators to make it before 8 a.m.
because once the race starts parts of the
road will have to be closed to traffic to pro-
tect runners.
Senior Gabriel Esquivel said he was hap-
py that his team got to race in Okeechobee.
"It's our home town. I hope everyone will
do well this Saturday."
Senior Juan Lugo said the Ag center has
been a good place to train because it re-
sembles a real cross country course. He said
the team is anxious to show off their talent
to the community, "The last time we had a
home meet was three years ago. That was
really exciting. I feel this race will be exciting
for the team as well."
Freshman Carissa Licata said she will be
real excited to see her family and friends at
the event Saturday. She said if more people
come that will give the team a better chance
to win. "The support really does help. I like
the course. It seems long, but I just have to
deal with it. I think it'll feel great to get the
community support."
Fellow freshman Tabatha Henry said she
would be nervous but that she expected
the community support would help her run
faster. "It's a tough course but it gets easy at
the end. There will be a lot of cheering for
us. It'll be crazy."
Bohannon said they are also planning to
hold a 5 K run for the community that could
be held during the County Fair in March. She
said that race could be a fundraiser for the
cross country team.

The festival is held in honor of the Civil-
ian Conservation Corps (CCC), a civilian
workforce established by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt in 1933. Almost five thousand
camps consisting of over three million men
were put to work in every state of the Union,
including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and
the Virgin Islands. Enrollees reforested
wastelands, developed recreational facili-
ties, worked in erosion control, fire fighting,
and built dams, bridges, and roadways dur-
ing the grips of the Great Depression.
Come revisit history with us during this
fun, family-friendly event. Highlands Ham-


mock State Park is located 4 miles west of

SFWMD water managers brace for dry conditions


Water conservation can help meet

challenges of weather extremes

With the strongest La Nifia for this time of year since
1955 forecast to create exceptionally dry conditions, the
South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) joined
the National Weather Service Tuesday to brief the public
and encourage water conservation as a measure to guide
the region through the 2010-2011 dry season.
"Weather extremes are a fact of South Florida living.
While there is a level of uncertainty with seasonal forecasts,
as water managers we do take this information into account
when making operational decisions," said Susan Sylvester,
the SFWMD Director of the Operations Control and Hydro
Data Management Department. "We continuously strive to
balance flood control, environmental protection and water
supply during both droughts and deluges with dedicated
maintenance of the system and by encouraging a water
conservation ethic among residents."


Wise water use will be especially crucial to protect the
public water supply in the coming months as La Nifa, or
colder than normal ocean surface temperatures in the equa-
torial Pacific, drives dry weather into South Florida. A strong
La Nifia suppresses cloudiness and rainfall in the region, es-
pecially during winter and spring.
While about 12 inches of rain falls on average across the
district from November through March, La Niia-influenced
dry seasons often produce only about two-thirds of the av-
erage during this five-month period. A late-season tropical
storm is still a possibility that could significantly impact rain-
fall amounts.
Regional well levels have already begun to fall with the
end of the rainy season sea breeze cycle. Notably, the Kis-
simmee Chain of Lakes is falling below regulation sched-
ules. In particular, Lake Istokpoga is heading toward water
shortage conditions for water users in its immediate area.
These conditions also threaten to create a potentially severe
wildfire season, according to the Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services.

Predictions of abnormally dry conditions follow a below
average South Florida wet season. An average of 26.91 inch-
es of rain fell between June 1 and Oct. 15, representing 86
percent of the normal amount and a deficit of 4.24 inches.
This was also the hottest summer on record in Southeast
Florida and the second hottest in Naples, according to the
National Weather Service.
"The expected presence of La Nifa into next spring
means that South Florida will likely have a drier-than-nor-
mal dry season," said Robert Molleda, warning coordination
meteorologist for the National Weather Service. "Previous
La Nifa events during the last 60 years have contributed to
an average dry season rainfall amount of about 60 to 65 per-
cent of normal across South Florida."
In fact, the National Weather Service's Climate Predic-
tion Center is forecasting record La Nifa conditions for each
month from October to April, along with several related dry
season predictions, including:
One or two winter storms over Florida for the dry sea-
son, which is four to five below normal.
La Nifa pattern produces lower risk for tornadoes
across the Florida peninsula compared with El Nifio years.
Latest long-range model projects a warmer-than-nor-
mal winter, though freezes are still a possibility.
Average winter temperature predicted to be 64-66F in-
terior/west to 67-69F east.

Weather Roller Coaster
Forecasts of a drier-than-normal dry season once again
showcase South Florida's weather extremes and water man-
agement challenges.
Normal: Florida receives an average of 52 inches of rain-
fall a year, with 70 percent falling during the five-month wet
season from approximately June through October.
Drier than Normal: The 2010 wet season so far has pro-
duced an approximately 4-inch rainfall deficit, despite local-
ized rainfall that totaled 3 inches or more in some areas.
Wetter than Normal: The 2009-2010 dry season record-
ed 131 percent of average dry season rainfall, representing
5.88 inches above normal from the beginning of November
through the end of May.
Record Wet Conditions: In 2009, the sea breeze cycle ush-
ered in the wet season in May. With 9.04 inches of rain fall-
ing across the District, May 2009 became the wettest May on
record, according to District records dating back to 1932.
Drier than Normal: The 2008-2009 South Florida dry sea-
son was the third driest on record as of March 1, 2009.
Near-Record Dry Conditions: October 2009 was one of
the driest Octobers on record, with only 1.16 inches of rain
falling, compared to a historical average of 3.76 inches.
Record Dry Conditions: November 2008 through April
2009 marked the driest six-month period in South Florida,
according to District records dating back to 1932.

Water conservation remains Key
The South Florida Water Management District's Com-
prehensive Water Conservation Program was approved by
the Governing Board in September 2008 to encourage more
consistent use of water resources throughout South Florida.
Numerous stakeholders worked with the District to define
specific regulatory, voluntary and incentive-based programs
and in-depth education and marketing plans that will help
foster a year-round conservation ethic. The program in-
cludes Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Conservation Mea-
sures that took effect in March 2010.
The SFWMD continues to closely monitor water levels
and is urging residents and businesses to conserve water
and follow landscape irrigation restrictions in effect. More
information about irrigation restrictions by area is available
on the District's water restrictions website. For water-saving

The boys fell 106-61 and the girls fell 120-
56 in a competitive swim meet.
Highlights for the boys included a victory
by Michael Miller in the 500 freestyle. Miller
finished the race with a time of 6:37.83. Ja-
son Rucks finished second in the 200 free-
style with a time of 2:21.41. Miller finished
third in that event. Dustin Houston took
third in the 200 individual medley and the


100 backstroke. Timmy Farrell finished sec-
ond in the 50 freestyle and the 100 freestyle.
Ben Kielbasa took third place in the 100 free-
style.
Highlights for the girls included the 200
medley relay team who won their race with
ease at 2:20.95. Members include Alex Ming,
Celena Letcher, Jaiden Barnhart and Savan-
nah Whitlock. Sage Douglas finished third in
the 200 freestyle and second in the 500 free-
style. Heather Hotmire took second in the 50
freestyle. Jaiden Barnhart took third in the
100 butterfly. Billie Levitt took second in the
100 backstroke. Celena Letcher took second


in the 100 breaststroke.
Brahman Coach Brian Turner said he
was happy that all of the swimmers contrib-
uted to the team at this meet, "It was a total
team effort. No one individual stood out but
overall we had a great day. I consider this a


victory for our boy's team which has really
progressed this season."
Turner said he is excited about the boys
because they won't lose any seniors this
year and he predicted next year will be even
more successful for the boy's team.
