City council tackles

sign ordinance again


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Once again the topic of signs
came up at the Tuesday, Nov. 2
meeting of the Okeechobee City
Council. Steve Nelson of Okeecho-
bee Discount Drugs questioned
the section that prohibits a mov-
ing sign from changing more fre-
quently than once every 60 sec-
onds.


Mr. Nelson said he contacted
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation about the changing
signs they use on construction
sites. He said there is no evidence
those kind of signs cause traffic ac-
cidents.
Mr. Nelson proposed changing
the text every 2 to 4 seconds.

Woman takes own


life in county jail


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The death of a 35-year-old
Okeechobee woman incarcer-
ated in the Okeechobee County
Jail has been ruled a suicide, ac
cording to a medical examiner's
report.
Kerrie Michelle Howard was
found dead in her cell shortly after
midnight Wednesday, Nov. 3. Ac
cording to the District 19 Medical
Examiner's Office in Fort Pierce,
Howard's official cause of death
was asphyxiation by hanging.
A suicide note was found but
because the death is still under
investigation Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) detectives


have declined to release the con-
tents of that note.
"I'm very sorry this happened.
We do everything we can to keep
this from happening but, the fact
remains, if someone wants to
hurt themselves they can," said
Sheriff Paul May. "We never saw
this coming or were given any
signs she was planning this. My
thoughts and prayers go to the
family."
Records indicate that Howard
had been housed in the county
jail since March 15 when her bond
was revoked after she was con-
victed on a misdemeanor charge

County vote mirrors statewide election results


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County's vote count was
close to the percentages in the statewide re-
sults in the Nov. 2 election.


The election included six amendments to
the Florida Constitution and three gained the
majority needed to pass.
Amendment 1-Repeal of Public Cam-
paign Financing Requirement-failed since
it did not receive the 60 percent of the votes


Corps re-opens visitor centers


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District hosted simultaneous open
house events at its visitor centers at St. Lu-
cie and WP. Franklin Locks to introduce
the public to its newest method of educat-
ing the public about non-native plant and
animal species, Lake Okeechobee and the
history of Herbert Hoover Dike.
"Learning about and caring for the en-
vironment is the cornerstone of this visitor
center, and our goal is to provide a fun, in-
teractive, educational experience that will
encourage environmental stewardship,"
said Deputy District Engineer for South
Florida, Lt. Col. Michael Kinard.
The center's new exhibits feature the
history of Lake Okeechobee and Herbert
Hoover Dike, the Lake Okeechobee eco-
system, invasive species and lock opera-
tions on the Okeechobee Waterway.
With more than 110,000 people using
St. Lucie's lock each year, "We look for-
ward to sharing these new great resources
with the communities they will serve,"

manager. "Each of these visitor centers has
had a complete renovation and features
brand new exhibits, including 'Alien Invad-
ers' about non-native plant and animal spe-
cies, life in and around Lake Okeechobee
and the history of Herbert Hoover Dike,"
Tarplee said.
Located along the St. Lucie canal, the 50
feet wide x 250 feet long x 10 feet deep at
low water, St. Lucie Lock was built in 1941
for navigation and flood control purposes.
The W P. Franklin Lock and Dam, lo-
cated along the Caloosahatchee River, ap-
proximately 33 miles upstream of the Gulf
Intracoastal Waterway, were constructed
in 1965 for flood control, water control,
prevention of salt-water intrusion and navi-
gation purposes. Both locks are open 365
days a year, 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., unless oth-
erwise noted in the U.S. Coast Guard pub-
lished, "Notice to Marines."

munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing

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

Elections
I had problems last time with the pri-
mary elections. They really do need to do a
better job for those of us that can't go to the
court house on election night.
It's simply a matter of too many people
trying to access the site at the same time. It
works fine on most day to day videocasts, but
is overloaded at election time. It wouldn't be
smart to spend so much money to make the
system larger for one or two days a year. As
for the hour and a half lag time, that's pretty
good when you figure they have to get ballots
from Basinger, Ft. Drum and all the other pre-
cincts to the Court House to be counted. The
polls don't close until 7 p.m. and you can still
vote if you're in line.
When they posted outside the old court
house on a chalk board, the results started
being posted at about 7:45. You might not get
finals till later but the system worked. Now
we have computers and a web broadcast you
don't even know what precinct has reported.
I preferred the chalk board.
Bring back the big board they used to
put in front of the courthouse. You could see
each precinct's votes as they came in. With
the computer system you can just see the
total votes counted so far, but you can't tell
which precincts have voted. I think we had
about 40-45 percent turnout, which is not
too bad for a midterm election. And the final
results were up by 9:30 p.m. so the count-
ing system isn't bad. But bring back the big
board in front of the courthouse to watch the
returns come in!
I liked the graves in the park.
Burying the losers in the park was a fun-
ny tradition and I loved it too. You weren't re-
ally "somebody" in Okeechobee unless you
had been buried in the park at least once.
They buried not only the candidates but also
their most vocal supporters.
The polls closed at 7 p.m. and we had
the complete results by 9:30 p.m. That is not
bad at all. Why is anyone complaining? Palm
Beach County was still counting ballots until
well into the wee hours of the morning.


Governor's race
Well it's official-the office of governor
of the State of Florida can be bought. And
the price tag was $73 million.

OCRA
There will always be a group of parents
within youth team that feel a change should
be made with the coaching staff. There are
the parents who feel the best players should
be on the field at all times to try and secure
a win and the rest just cheer them on in
support. There are parents who feel that ev-
ery player should be on the field an equal
amount of time, regardless of talent levels.
There are parents who feel the coach should
attempt to win at all costs, practice five days
a week, and put homework/studying on the
back burner. The parents who believe it's
just a game and practicing more than twice
a week is just too much during the school
year. I could go on and on, but I think you
get the picture.
An OCRA coach can never have too
much help at a practice. If more parents get
involved at practice, it enables the coach
to get more one on one time with kids that
need the extra attention. Many parents pull
up, drop their kid off and pull away. They
don't show back up until 30 minutes after
the time the coach said practice would be
over. You might find that coaching isn't the
"scary monster" you thought it was. In most
cases it's the fear of the unknown that keeps
moms and dads from coaching a team. Get
out of the truck and observe a practice. If
you see something that you can handle,
talk to the coach. Offer your help. Free that
coach up so he CAN work with your child a
little more on pitching or hitting or whatever
it might be that is keeping your child from
making that break through.
If you failed to offer to be a head coach
or assistant coach at the beginning of the
year and the coach is not being abusive to
the children, then keep your mouth shut and
offer to coach next year. There are always
plenty of openings here at OCRA, if you have
the proper credentials and a clean back-
ground. If your kid comes home crying, and
it's not from abusive language or treatment
from the coach, then consider football might
not be his sport. If he is crying because they
aren't winning, it will only make him appre-
ciate it more when he is on that champion-
ship team some year. These coaches are vol-
unteers man! Too many parents expect their

child to be on the championship team every
year and when it doesn't happen the world,
then the coach and OCRA are to blame. If
you want to have your kid play for Vince
Lombardi, take him to the coast and pay
up to put him on one of those high dollar
traveling squads, where you get to pick the
coach, if he makes the team. Until then, here
at Okeechobee Citizens Recreation Associa-
tion, let the kids play recreation ball and read
the signs on the fence as you sit back and
watch it.

Trick or Treat
I am a fan of trick or treating at the ag
center because it is safer for the kids. Fur-
ther, when we were at home, we had kids
coming to our home that were bigger than
me and my husband, who were obviously
in middle and high school. There were kids
loaded down in vehicles coming in droves to
get gobs of candy they really didn't need. Par-
ents need to teach their children respect and
discretion. Until such time as that occurs, we
will be going to the ag center, where there is
a semblance of order.
I live in Lazy 7 and LOVE to hand treats
out on Halloween, sure, there are a few kids
that maybe are too old or not really in cos-
tume, but the little ones are a joy to see. This
year I teased the older ones, made them say
Trick or Treat, or asked them what their "cos-
tume" was. It seems that the majority of the
kids are from the neighborhood, because
there are a lot of golf carts around, even pull-
ing flatbed trailers! It lasts about two hours,
from around 6 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. or so, and
when the kids stop ringing my doorbell, my
porch light goes off. We're lucky to live in a
great neighborhood.
I took my kids to the Ag Center on Hal-
loween night. There was no room to walk
around, and there were no "lines" for kids
to play the games. There were about three
or four lines of kids pushing and shoving
each other to play the games. For what? One
measly piece of candy? I stayed for about 15
minutes, and then decided to take them to
Oak Park. We walked up three streets, and
my kids had a ball. We were out for about
an hour and a half, and they were in bed by
8:30. I understand the purpose of the Hal-
loween party at the Ag Center, but I think it
could have been done a little differently.
When the trick or treaters are as tall
as an adult and are not dressed in Hallow-
een garb, then that is a strong clue that the
whole situation is out of hand and a person
should lock the door and turn off the light.

When my kids were little (elementary
school age) we took them trick or treating.
I wanted them to have that experience, just
as I had as a child. And we did it the way I
did as a child. We walked around the neigh-
borhood and went to the houses of people
we know. These are our neighbors who
watched the kids grow up. Then we got in
the car and went to see some special friends
and relatives who wanted to see the kids in
their costumes. That was the Halloween tra-
dition I wanted to pass on-not the greedy,
hit as many houses as you can, load up on
"free" candy tradition some people follow. I
also recall that our neighbors and friends of-
ten had two kinds of candy. They had special
little bags of candy made up for the children
they knew-the children of friends, relatives
and neighbors. And they had some inex-
pensive hard candy to give out to strangers.
That is one way to keep the candy expense
in check.

Congratulations to young
horseman
Okeechobee's Hunter Bryant, 11, won
third place in the Extreme Mustang Make-
over Challenge. The youth competition is
open to age 18 and under. Each contestant
is given a yearling mustang to work with and
three months to train the wild horse. Hunter
was the youngest contestant in this year's
competition and the only boy to make the
top ten. His grandmother posted a video of
his freestyle routine on Youtube. Remem-
ber, that just 90 days before, this was a
wild horse, fresh off the range. Hunter had
to earn the horse's trust and train it for the
routine in the arena. In the competition, they
are allowed to sit on the horse, but not al-
lowed to ride it-since these are yearlings.
Okeechobee should be very proud of this
hard working young man. Edtior's note: The
link to the video can be found on www.
newszap.com. Click on "Okeechobee" and
then on the "local issues" forum.
You better believe there is a LOT of trust
going on between those two. To take a wild
horse/Mustang, and within 90 days have him
arena ready is awesome. When he backed
that horse up and over the tarp without him
boogering was very impressive ... then to get
him to lay down, and stay down, while pop-
ping a whip over him ... Shows what hard
work and dedication can accomplish.

CITY
Continued From Page 1

The board discussed the difference be-
tween blinking and flashings signs and signs
with changing text. After considerable dis-
cussion the board decided to refer the matter
back to the planning board. Until this matter
is resolved the mayor directed the city ad-
ministrator to inform the code inspector not
to issue any citations for moving signs.
"Do you think we will ever be through
with signs?" asked Mayor James Kirk,
"Not in my lifetime," replied councilman
Dowling Watford.
Ronnie Lawrence, owner of the White
House Plaza approached the city council
about parking for tenants of the building. He
presented a drawing which partially showed
his solution to the problem. The council
asked him to come back before them with
a completed drawing.

first degree murder, they will automati-
cally receive a life sentence. Boswell was
also found guilty on two counts of robbery,
armed burglary, grand theft motor vehicle,
cruelty to animals and possession of a fire-
arm by a convicted felon.
A third man -- Daniel Solomon, 32 -- was
convicted late this summer of first degree
felony murder, two counts of robbery and
one count of armed burglary. He has been
sentenced to life in prison on each charge.
Solomon drove the other two men to Puli-
do's home but fled in the getaway car when
he heard the gunshots.
"We're really happy about it," said As-
sistant State Attorney Don Richardson of the
convictions. "The family is happy and re-
lieved. I think after these guys are sentenced,
they'll get closure."
Through testimony in the trials, jurors
learned that Boswell and Lopez planned on
going to Pulido's home and robbing him of
money and drugs. What they didn't learn
was who actually shot the 28-year-old Pu-
lido.
"In the eyes of the law, it doesn't matter
who shot Angel Pulido-they're all guilty,"
Mr. Richardson told the jury in his closing
arguments Wednesday. "His (Lopez) only
regret was leaving somebody alive."
Because Pulido was killed during the
commission of a felony, the state did not
have to prove who shot and killed him. All
the state had to do to prove felony murder
was convince the juries that the three men
were committing a felony and that Pulido
was dead.
Fellow prosecutor Ashley Albright did the
second part of the state's closing and told
the jury that Boswell had likely been in Pu-


Fountain of Life Church wished to moved
from their present location to Northshore
Shopping Center. Since the church did not
qualify for a special exception, that matter
was referred to the planning board also.
Turning to other issues the city council
filed an application for a Community De-
velopment Block Grant for housing reha-
bilitation. The application is for $560,000
for housing rehabilitation, $35,000 for tem-
porary relocation and $105,000 for adminis-
tration for a total of $700,000. The goal is to
rehabilitate 10 housing units.
In connection the council heard a re-

lido's home before and he knew about the
drugs. Boswell and Lopez then got Solomon
to take them to Pulido's home.
Mr. Albright then theorized that Lopez,
who spoke Spanish, knocked on the door
and asked Pulido: "Do you have any coke?"
Then, one of the men shot Pulido and
Fatboy. They then went into Norman's bed-
room where Boswell demanded she give
him drugs and money. The only money she
had was spare change she and her paramour
collected in a jar.
With Fatboy laying dead next to Norman's
bed, Boswell took the jar and the men fled
out the back door of the home only to find
their getaway car and driver gone.
Using a pry bar, Lopez broke out the
glass in the back door of the house and the
two men went back into the home where
Norman was now on the phone with a 9-1-1
dispatcher. At this point, Norman hung up
the phone and Boswell demanded the keys
to her car. The men walked out the front
door and got in her black Dodge Durango.
They were arrested about an hour later near
Lake Placid.
"They both stepped over the dead body
of Mr. Pulido, got in the Dodge Durango and
drove away," Mr. Albright told the jury.
According to the 'jailhouse' note Lopez
penned and gave to fellow inmate Adrian
Brazell, he couldn't understand why they left
the house without killing Norman.
"He had the gun with the bullets so, if
he kill they guy, why he didn't kill the girl?"
he wrote.
Lopez went on state in his note that he
knew why Boswell did not give him any bul-
lets.
"He knew that I was goin to kill every
body in the house cuz I told him that no
body most live," he wrote.
Editor's Note: The passages quoted
from the letter written by Lopez were
quoted exactly as written.

of driving under the influence. She had been
free on bond following her Feb. 3 arrest on
four counts of obtaining a controlled sub-
stance by fraud, or doctor shopping.
Arrest records show that Howard was
arrested Feb. 5 on felony charges of crimi-
nal use of personal identification informa-
tion and trespass upon ground or facility
of schools. Then, on March 8 she was ar-
rested on the DUI charge. She was arrested
again on April 6 on a misdemeanor trespass
charge.
On May 26 she was arrested on DUI
manslaughter, DUI manslaughter fail to ren-
der aid and leaving the scene of an accident
involving death. Those charges stem from a
March 28, 2009, accident in which she was
accused of killing Derrick Jace Rogers. She
was allegedly driving a 2004 Dodge Ram
pickup truck when she hit Mr. Rogers as he
was walking on U.S. 441 S.E.
According to a report by OCSO Deputy
Donald Ellis, he found the man's body lying
in the middle of the highway on top of the
Taylor Creek Bridge. Howard had left the
scene and called the sheriff's office from a
nearby business, continued the report.
Mr. Rogers was 23 years old.
Howard's bond on those charges had
been set at $300,000.
Court records show that Howard had
been found guilty of DUI and was given one
year's probation by County Judge Jerald Bry-

Then, on March 10, 2009, 16-year-old An-
thony 'Tony' Brewer was found hanging by
a sheet from the top bunk of his cell. The
Port St. Lucie teen had been arrested on Oct.
31, 2008, on two counts of aggravated as-
sault with a firearm and had been charged
as an adult.
Although he had been charged as an
adult, Brewer was being held in a specific
housing area for juveniles.
Brewer left no suicide note.

Health Department offers


plus side of quitting


The State of Florida Department
of Health wants to offer a few
"pluses" to quitting smoking.
Immediately after you quit smoking, the
air around you is no longer dangerous to
children and other adults.
Within just 20 minutes after you quit
smoking, blood pressure drops to a normal
level where smoking elevates blood pres-
sure with every puff. Pulse rate returns to a
normal level and temperature in hands and
feet increase to a normal level due to better
circulation of blood.
In just eight short hours after quitting
smoking the carbon monoxide level in your
body will return to normal along with nor-
mal oxygen levels returning.
In only 48 hours nerve endings start re-
growing and the ability to smell and taste is
enhance with the lack of smoke inhaled.
For the next two to twelve weeks you will
notice changes in circulation, breathing and
walking will become easier with shortness
of breath from smoking decreasing. Any-


where from one to nine months coughing
and sinus congestion decreases, shortness
of breath decreases, overall lung energy in-
creases and the lungs increase ability to self-
clean and reduce infection.
At one year of quitting smoking a cele-
bration is due with the excess risk of coro-
nary heart disease now being half that of a
smoker. Celebrate life!
Five years is yet another milestone. The
incidence of stroke risk is reduced to that
of a nonsmoker. The risk of cancer of the
mouth, throat and esophagus is half that of
a smoker.
Life expectancy comparable to a non-
smoker. Lung cancer death rate is about
half the rate of a smoker. Risk of cancer of
mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney
and pancreas decrease. Precancerous cells
are replaced.
Risk of coronary heart disease compa-
rable to that of nonsmoker.
Quitting smoking now greatly increases
your chances of a healthier life and a health-
ier you. For more information on quitting
smoking, please call 1-87-QUIT-NOW-6.


Cervical cancer screenings help save lives


By Armando A. Santelices M.D.
Florida Community Health Centers
The incidence of cervical cancer in
women has decreased more than 50
percent in the past 30 years. This great
achievement is the direct result of wide-
spread screening using cervical cytology,
other wise known as the Pap smear. As a
direct correlation, deaths occurring from
this disease have decreased in the same
percentage. In spite of the proven success
of screening, in the year 2009 the American
Cancer Society predicts 11,270 new cases,
with 4,070 deaths. It is estimated that of
these cases 50 percent have never had a
cervical pathology testing in their life time!
Thus one approach to make even a greater
impact is to educate all women of the im-
portance of this test, not once in a while,


but rather on a regular schedule that var-
ies depending on your age as well as other
health factors.
This testing should begin at the age of
21 regardless of the age of onset of sexual
intercourse. If this test is normal then you
should get one every other year. When
you reach the age of 30 and have had
three consecutive normal exams, then
you should get it every 3 years. Once you
have reached the age of 70 years and have
had three consecutive exams they are no
longer necessary. Finally, if you have had a
hysterectomy for a non-cancerous disease
and have no history of abnormal exams
then this evaluation is no longer necessary.
Contact your health care provider if you are
one of those that need this test. Remem-
ber that "an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure."


Tips help keep cancer at bay


Every time you turn on the TV or read
the news, you probably hear more about
cancer-what causes it and how to prevent
it. Making sense of so much information
can be confusing, and some sources of ad-
vice seem to contradict each other. So what
should you believe?
Here are some specific and trusted steps
you can take to avoid cancer.
Don't use tobacco. This is a really im-
portant one. All types of tobacco are linked
to the development of cancer. If you chew
or smoke tobacco, you're at increased risk
for many different cancers, including throat,
lung, bladder, cervix, mouth, esophagus,
and pancreas. Since the addiction to tobac-
co can be both physical and psychological,
quitting may be difficult. But it is worth the
effort! So talk to your doctor about the best
strategies.
Be careful of the sun. Skin cancer is
one of the most common types of cancer,
so it's important to take steps to prevent it.
Try to avoid sun exposure during the peak
hours-10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you must be
out during that time, try to find shade when
possible and wear a wide-brimmed hat. Be
sure to slather on the sunscreen (SPF of 15
or higher) whenever you're outside, not just
when you're at the beach and the pool.
Stay active. Get off the couch and keep
moving! Studies have shown that people


who are active lower their risk of breast,
colon, prostate, uterus, and other cancers.
Furthermore, regular exercise (for at least
30 minutes most days of the week) can help
you maintain a healthy weight. Obesity has
been linked a variety of cancers, as well as
heart disease and diabetes.
Watch your diet. To ward off cancer,
it's important that you pay close attention to
what you eat and drink. Experts suggest that
you treat yourself to a variety of fruits, veg-
etables, and whole grains. These high-fiber
foods can keep you full and are known to
help prevent cancer of the colon, stomach,
lung, and esophagus. Some of their vitamins
and minerals may fight other types of can-
cer as well. For protein, choose lean, low-fat
options. If you choose to drink alcohol, do
so only in moderation-two drinks a day for
men, one for women.
Get screened. While everyone wants to
avoid cancer, it may be hard to do. So it's
important that you be screened for any can-
cers you are at risk for. Women should have
mammograms, men should have prostate
checks, and everyone 50 or older should be
screened for colon cancer. Talk to your doc-
tor about your risk factors. Remember that
early diagnosis is often key for effective treat-
ment and recovery.

Donegan represents OHS well


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Richard Donegan shot a two day score
of 148, 4-over par, at the State Class 2A Golf
Championships at the Juliet Country Club
in Dunnellon Monday and Tuesday.
Donegan finished 18th in the state, eight
shots off the leader, Dan Walker of Lake-
wood Ranch.
Spruce Creek of Port Orange won the
team title with a score of 10-over par.
Brahman Golf Coach Kenny Buckner
said Donegan played really consistently
and had chances to score even better at
the State Championships, "With a little
luck, he could have shot under par. He
played very well and should be very proud
of himself."


The Country Club was a challenge with
difficult, fast greens, narrow fairways,
plenty of water hazards, and deep bunkers.
Donegan also played against the individual
winner Walker on both days and played
toe to toe with the best in the state.
He is as good as the state champion
was. He's played in this type of atmosphere
before so I think that helped him," Buckner
added.
There were large galleries to watch
the tournament and it made many of the
younger golfers nervous. Donegan was
able to battle his nerves and play steady
golf.
As a junior, Donegan has one more year
to perfect his game and compete for an-
other state championship.

Lady Brahman volleyball couldn't hold a
2-0 lead and fell to Titusville in the regional
quarterfinal and fell 25-15, 25-21, 19-25,
21-25, and 14-16 in an exciting and intense
match at Okeechobee Tuesday night.
The match was the first regional held at
Okeechobee's gymnasium in 10 years. A
large crowd of students, parents and sup-
porters filled the gym to support the Lady
Brahmans, the District 14-4A champs.
Early on the crowd had a lot of cheer as
Okeechobee looked like the superior team.
They jumped out on top 4-0 and 7-2 and
never trailed in winning the first game by 10
points.
The second game was much more com-
petitive as Titusville took an 18-17 lead late
in the game. Okeechobee rebounded down
the stretch to win that game by four points.
After that Titusville appeared to be a dif-
ferent team as they raised their level of play
and swept the last three games.
Okeechobee held leads in all three games
but couldn't hold them. They led 16-11 mid-
way through game four but couldn't hold
the lead. They also led 7-5 in game three but
couldn't hold the advantage.


In the final game Okeechobee led 10-8
but couldn't hold the lead. Coach Jones said
in a match like that you must take advantage
of the opportunities given you or you will
lose.
"Every time they were able to set up #23
at the net it ended in a kill. It put a lot of pres-
sure on our offense to score when we had
opportunities," he added.
Coach Todd Jones said his team struggled
a bit with their passes. Titusville also had
some tall girls who scored a lot of points on
kills at the net.
Titusville advanced to play Jensen Beach
next Tuesday in the Regional Semifinals.

OCRA all stars to play in National Championships


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Citizens Recreation As-
sociation will hold a fund raiser barbecue on
Saturday, Dec. 11 to raise money so three all
star teams can play in this years O-D National
Football Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
OCRA President Lawrence Fipps said
they might have to raise close to $7,500 to
pay for the transportation to the tournament
that runs from Dec. 29, 2010 to Jan. 1, 2011.


OCRA will send three teams, a 15 and un-
der, 13 and under, and 11 and under team to
the tournament.
Fipps said OCRA All stars had registered
to play in a tournament in Rockledge earlier
this season but that tournament was can-
celled. The money they raised to attend that
tournament will go toward expenses in the
National Tournament.
It was also ironic that Okeechobee was
the second team to register for the tourna-
ment because the O-D Tournament decided


to invite the first two teams registered to
their national tournament.
"They also held qualifying tournaments
in Dallas, Texas and California. There will be
12 teams in each age division and some of
the best football players in the nation at this
tournament," Fipps added.
Fipps said he wanted to do everything
he could to make sure these players get to
experience this opportunity, "It should be a
big thing for these boys. Everybody is really
excited. It is a really good opportunity for
these kids."


Myrtle Beach will also hold the High
School Football All American Game during
that same weekend. Fipps said if one of the
Okeechobee teams can reach the champi-
onship game, it will be televised, most likely
around the nation.
The BBQ fundraiser will include barbe-
cue pork, and assorted dishes. The cost will
be $8. For more information please call 863-
634-1437.


Brahmans play Palm Beach Lakes Rams


By Charles M.
Murphy
Okeechobee News


Okeechobee High
School and Palm
Beach Lakes will de-
cide who the runner
up in District 15-4A
will be when the two
football teams meet
at Palm Beach Lakes
High School tonight.
Okeechobee
(2-6) and Palm
Beach Lakes (1-7)
have obviously not
set the world on fire S o i
this year.
The Rams have
played a number R
of close games and
last week fell to
Pahokee 14-13 on
the final play of the Share your nev
game. They also lost for this column
to Palm Beach Gar-colum
dens by six points okeenews@n
and Wellington by
two points earlier this year. The only com-
mon opponent they have with Okeechobee
this year is district champion Dwyer. Lakes
lost to Dwyer 62-6 on Oct. 8. Dwyer defeated
Okeechobee 50-0 two weeks later.
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson said
the Rams have a number of good athletes
and have good size up front. He listed QB
Marquis Williams, (721 yards passing and
six touchdowns), and running back Tirell
Tillman, (313 yards rushing and nine touch-
downs) as top athletes. He also listed WR
Trevonte Adderly (393 yards in receptions
and three touchdowns), as another threat.
"They are fast off the edge and big up the
middle. There QB is a talented athlete who
can run with the ball," he added.
Jackson said Palm Beach Lakes' record
is not indicative of their talent. He said both
teams are looking for the magic mixture or
solution to find some victories.
"It is strange because from week to week
you don't know who is going to show up.
You just find a way to keep fighting," he
added.
Jackson said his team continues to work


I

n
e


on fundamentals. He
said they just try to
utilize the talent they
have. He noted this
year's team doesn't
have big backs and
linemen to run the ball.
They also don't have a
passing game that can
stretch the field. "It's all
about who we have.
SWe don't have speed
that can stretch the
field, running backs
that can break one for
90 yards, and we don't
that pound people into
submission."
Jackson said he felt
So rt the team has gotten
better every week but
so has the talent level
of their opponents.
s and photos 'A lot of times the big
Sby email to train will run over the
iwszap.com little train. Our guys
fight. There hasn't'
been a game where
we just rolled over. We've had times where
we've not been focused, and have been un-
disciplined and out of position. We do fight
for four quarters."
Last week Okeechobee got Alonzo Cole-
man more involved in the offense. He caught
two touchdown passes and could have had
three. Aukeemian Mills continues to have
a solid season and punter Colby Frank has
done a great job on special teams. Jackson
said his team will continue to play conser-
vatively and do what they do best. He said
his offensive line and backs must do a bet-
ter job of controlling the ball and the line of
scrimmage.
"The playoffs will be enough of a motiva-
tor tonight for both teams. I expect it to be a
good fight," he added.
Daron Washington remains out with a
broken ankle and will miss the rest of the
season. Jose Garcia injured his knee and
is also out for the season. Cody Dunn was
called up from the JV team to start at center
and Thor Harden will move to guard for the
game.


OHS girls soccer team starts season


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School girls soccer
expects to be on the rise this year after a
(5-8) campaign last year that included a
snub by District 14-4A.
Only the top four teams in the district
qualified for the tournament last year and
Okeechobee players remain upset about
those turn of events.
Coach Julie Bohannon said she expects
her team to be very motivated as they try
and improve this year.
The team lost goal keeper Megan Cle-
ments to graduation but return some solid
players like LeAnna Cotton, Tiffany McGee,
Jaiden Barnhart, and Nickey Ingram.
Assistant Coach Bobbie Ingram said she
said there are also a number of new girls
who are new to high school quality soccer.
She said they are excited about the return-
ing cast.
"I think there is potential this year. We
have a few potential scorers and I feel our
defense will be stronger than our offense at
the beginning of the season," she added.
Okeechobee will be without several
players at the beginning of the schedule as
they play in other sports. Ingram predicted
the team should be at full strength come
December.

during a recent Okeechobee High
School girls soccer practice.
"The first few matches will be defensive
oriented. I think once we get into game
situations the girls will click and get into a
rhythm," she added.
Kailey Hoover and Cotton could com-
pete for time at goal keeper this year. Emily
Raulerson is another returned with experi-
ence. McGee could be the main goal scorer
up front and Ingram is expected to do a
solid job as sweeper.
Coach Ingram said the team made a
lot of strides last year. She gave as an ex-
ample of that improvement the team's two
matches with Martin County. The Lady Ti-
gers defeated Okeechobee 8-0 in the first
meeting in a mercy rule match that was
stopped before halftime. The second time
the two teams met in Okeechobee Martin
County slipped past the Brahmans 2-0.
"The team felt they didn't get a chance to
show off the improvement they had made
in the district tournament. I feel that will
motivate the girls this year," she added.
The Lady Brahmans home opener is
Nov. 29 against Port St. Lucie at 6 p.m.
Former Brahman Dawn Fox and Ingram
will assist Bohannon this year on the side-
line.

YMS volleyball ends unbeaten season


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Yearling Middle School's volleyball team
finished a third straight season unbeaten
with a victory in the Sebastian Middle
School Volleyball tournament last Saturday
to finish (19-0).
Yearling defeated cross town rival Os-
ceola in pool play 25-16, and 25-17, Storm
Grove 25-12 and 25-19, and Sebastian River
25-19, and 25-21.
In the semifinals Yearling defeated Os-
ceola again 26-15, and 25-18. They defeat-
ed Sebastian in the final match 25-18, and
26-24.
Coach Bruce Conrad said the final game
was a real battle as the score was tied at 24
before Sarah Hurst launched her 29th and
30th aces of the tournament to secure the
undefeated season.
"Sebastian definitely played their finest
volleyball of the year in this tournament
and gave us one of our toughest matches
of the year in the championship game,"


Conrad added, "I was extremely pleased
with the play of our sixth graders through-
out the tournament and can't say enough
about the leadership of our eighth grad-
ers."
Hurt had 30 aces, 34 assists and 12 kills
in the tournament. Cheyenne Nunez had
17 acres, and 21 kills. Delaney Osceola had
13 acres and nine kills. Trista Osceola had
18 acres and three kills. Jenna Thomas
had eight aces, and four kills. Baylee Far-
less had nine acres, seven assists and seven
kills. Courtney Gore had 11 acres, 12 assists
and eight kills. Andee Garcia had 13 assists.
Josie Griffin had 10 kills.
Yearling played without three of their
more experienced players in the tourna-
ment. Conrad said that helped the younger
players get some much needed experience
for next year.
"Although I'm really going to miss my
four departing 8th graders, I'll hopefully
have a dozen great players returning for
next season," he added.


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School boy's soc-
cer team opened their season at the Jensen
Beach preseason classic on Monday with a
2-0 loss to the Vero Beach Indians.
Okeechobee had a nearly totally different
team from the one that finished last season
due to graduations, other sports, and inju-
ries.
Coach Lonnie Sears said he felt the pre
season classic was just a chance to get some
work in and get the team to know one an-
other, "We had eight starters out of this


match so we are just learning. I get to see a
lot of new players and I'm trying to find the
players to fill out our lineup."
Sears said he expects to get players back
from injury, cross country, and other reasons
when the regular season begins on Monday,
Nov. 15 against Boynton Beach.
"I think it'll be a struggle for awhile
this season but we'll get rolling after a few
games," Sears added.
Players like Arturo Dominguez and Hunt-
er Pritchard are coming back from injury
and likely won't play until December.
