Okeechobee News
The Lady Brahman soccer

She played OCRA, for a travel
team called the Hurricanes on
the Treasure Coast, and now
Okeechobee High School. She is
one of the squad's best scorers.
Ingram plays the sweeper po-
sition and is a key player on de-
fense. She too has played soccer-


for about 12 years. She also plays
travel ball and is on Okeecho-
bee's Club Soccer team.
McGee said she is excited to
play her senior year and has high
hopes for the squad this year, "I
just hope that we have a really
good team. We have a lot of new
players but hopefully this will be
a strong team. I'm looking for-
ward to it because we've had a
lot of fun already."
Ingram said she also expects
her senior year to be a fun year.

City council race very close ImiiIi


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
"I was very pleased overall," said
Okeechobee County Supervisor of Elections
Gwen Chandler said of how Tuesday's elec-
tion went. All the results were in and tabulat-
ed around 9 p.m., about the average time in
recent years. Mrs. Chandler said there was a
problem sending information to the screens
in the commission chambers. For the first
time in a general election, interested people
could come to the second floor commission
chambers in the courthouse and watch the
latest returns projected on a large screen or
watch the latest returns on their computer at
home. This system was first used during the
primary elections in September. About 45
percent of Okeechobee's 18,501 registered
voters participated in this election.
The city council race, where four can-
didates competed for three nonpartisan at
large seats, was very close. There was a 0.92
percent margin between the number one
candidate, challenger Devin Maxwell and
the number 3 candidate incumbent Dowl-
ing Watford. Falling in between those two
spots was incumbent Clayton Williams. In-
cumbent Lowry Markham was edged out by
1.13 percent.

"I feel honored and very grateful that I
have been given this opportunity," said Mr.
Maxwell. "I would like to thank all the folks
who have supported and helped me in this
endeavor, especially my family. I'm excited
about the City of Okeechobee and I can't
wait to get to work.
"Well I'm very humbled and pleased to
be re-elected," stated Mr. Watford, "and I
am thankful the citizens felt like I did a good
job." He said the closeness of the race was
testimony to the caliber of the candidates.
"I'm excited to be able to serve again,"
was the feeling of Mr. Williams. "We've got
to work together." He predicted another
tough budget year.
While incumbent Republican Joey
Hoover handily defeated Democratic chal-
lenger Terry Burroughs for the District 4 seat
on the county commission, there was only
a 2.72 percent margin between the winner
of the District 2 seat, Republican Bryant Cul-
pepper and his opponent, former commis-
sioner Democrat Gene Woods.
Mr. Culpepper said he wanted to thank
"my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" for his
victory.
"I've always believed in myself," he said.
He said he wanted those who voted against
him to be "absolutely assured" he would
work for them. Mr. Culpepper paid tribute
to his opponent, Gene Woods, for running a
clean campaign.
Mr. Hoover wanted to let people know he
appreciated their support. "I had a track re-
cord and people could see how I voted and
they felt comfortable with me," he said. Mr.
Hoover added that he appreciated his oppo-
nent, Terry Burroughs, and said he encour-
aged Mr. Burroughs to continue in his civic
endeavors.

OPINION


Public Forum/Speak Out


Sunday, November 7, 2010


Reflections from the pulpit


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

Congratulations to young
horseman
Congratulations to Hunter Bryant on
his success in the Extreme Mustang chal-
lenge. What a great experience for someone
so young. Good luck in your future.
What a beautiful horse-I am sure
there was a lot of grooming and condition-
ing involved. When those horses come off
the range they are pretty shaggy and rough.
This is a kid who certainly isn't complaining
about there's nothing to do! I am so glad to
see something positive about an Okeecho-
bee kid. Most of the kids here are terrific
but the bad apples get a disproportionate
amount of the attention.

Property taxes
When I opened my property taxes this
year all of the information that I retained dur-
ing the county budget hearings flashed back
in my mind and I was again disappointed.
Within a couple of seconds on the old cal-
culator, I formulated the percentage of dis-
tribution of my tax money. The county re-
ceived 44 percent of the distribution; School
Board received 49 percent, SFWM 3 percent,
County Bond 2 percent and Childrens Coun-
cil 2 percent. Now to round it off there was
an additional cost for EMS, Fire and Garbage
Assessments but those costs can be avoided
if I pay the taxes within the first 30 days.
However, as I said earlier, the information
that I retained in the Budget Hearings re-
minded me that the 44 percent of the county
distribution really goes to the Sheriff's De-
partment. Now, I can accept the 49 percent
going to the schools but not to the Sheriff's
Department. My choice for the county is to
keep the EMS and Fire Department strong
and stable. When the Sheriff's Department
is consuming the county's entire portion of
the property taxes, it's time to park the gas
guzzler and obtain a more efficient model.


Rick Scott ran for governor saying he
was going to cut property taxes. I can't see
how he can do that since setting the proper-
ty tax millage is a local government decision
not a state one. But I hope the media stays
on him about it and keeps asking when he is
going to keep that campaign promise.

Sign ordinance
The Okeechobee City Council has been
working on that sign ordinance for years.
Will they ever figure that one out? It seems
like they are trying to make everybody hap-
py, which is just not possible.

Mock funerals after elections
That was fun to go and walk through
the park and read the humor/poems on the
make shift, homemade tombstones. Heard
they did bury several the other night but the
city employees took them down early and
only a few people got to read them. Tradition
must not be acceptable to the new bunch
of Okeechobee citizens. Maybe time to put
some laughter in elections again by placing
them on private property and the city crews
will leave them alone.

Elections
I was amazed at how many people in
Okeechobee voted Republican. Less than 25
years ago, the Okeechobee Republican Party
could have met in a phone booth. Okeecho-
bee voters elected the county's first success-
ful Republican to office around 1996. Now
look not only at how many Republicans we
have in office but also how many voters vot-
ed Republican in the state races. Things have
really changed.
I think the Supervisor of Elections did a
great job with the Okeechobee County elec-
tion. But I agree with the folks who are asking
that in future elections they bring back the
big board in front of the courthouse. I much
preferred that to the way they do it now with
the computers. It was fun to go and see ev-
eryone on the courthouse lawn. We should
bring back the big board just for the sake of
tradition even if they also do the computer
and online stuff for the online generation.
Thank you for the story about the
amendments in the Friday paper. I kept wait-
ing for the TV news to go over which amend-
ments passed and which ones failed but they
were so busy with the governor's race, they
didn't bother to explain much about the
amendments. I am so glad that Amendment
4 was defeated. That would have been a ter-
rible expense for our little community.

By Rev. Tommaso Pasquarella
Pastor Cornerstone Baptist Church
Brothers and sisters, like Paul, I want
to call you all to be strong in the Lord. Be
strong in the Lord having a love for others
within and with out of the church, avoiding
sin by not even mentioning, and with God,
following Him with all that you are. You can
be strong and do these things only because
He is strong. You can be strong only because
Christ has saved you. "Put on the whole ar-
mour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil." (Ephesians
6:11) It sounds like attacks will come, be-
cause they will. You will either stand or you
will fall. Christ wants us to stand in Him so
that He can fight your battle. Flesh and blood
is not your enemy though attacks come in
human form; you struggle against the one
behind the attacks. The devil is like a lion
seeking whom he may devour. Why is it that
you think you can take on Hell with a water
pistol? It is not your job, your job is to stand
in Christ so that He can fight your battle and
have your backs, this is why you must put on
the whole armor of God.
When you put on the armor of God, you
will stand against the wiles of the evil one.
You are commanded to put on this armor.
"Stand therefore, having your loins girt about
with truth, and having on the breastplate of
righteousness" (Ephesians 6:14) You are to
stand girding your loins with truth. This gird-
ing is supposed to protect the thighs in bat-
tle. Truth is what helps you to stand in Christ.
You cannot afford to be off your feet when
we are to be standing for His glory. "You've
got to stand for something, or you'll fall for
anything, you've got to be your own man,
not a puppet on a string, never compromise
what's right," (Aaron Tippin) because truth
is what holds you up and keeps you going,
so live in His truth.
You are not only armed with truth, but
righteousness, which is the ability to live in
His truth. You are to put on the breastplate
of righteousness. What is a breastplate? It
is a piece of armor designed to withstand
the blows and arrows of the enemy. Righ-
teousness is acting in accord with divine or
moral law, free from guilt or sin. Put on this
breastplate in order to protect your hearts so
that your hearts would be free from the con-
fines of sin. When you put on His truth and
His righteousness you put on the new man,
who is Christ Jesus. You cannot protect any-
thing without Christ. You cannot avoid sin

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.


without Christ. In fact without Christ you are
lost and heading toward Hell, because you
have not trusted in the only One who can
take away your sin. In order for you and I to
see Heaven we must be covered in His righ-
teousness and truth, because all of us have
sinned and fallen short of the glory of God
and the wages of sin is death. By putting on
righteousness and truth we become imita-
tors of God. If you are focusing on being like
Christ you will seek to do things the way
Christ has done and live in the truth.
You must stand in truth and righteousness
while you stand in the gospel. "And your feet
shod with the preparation of the gospel of
peace" (Ephesians 6:15) Your feet should be
equipped with shoes that are equipped with
the preparation of the gospel.
This means you must be always ready
with the gospel. The gospel is the only thing
that will not only bring the message of peace
to people who hear it, but will also give those
who have accepted the gospel the ability to
remember and rest in the power of the One
who took their place and their punishment.
Christ died, was buried and was raised to life
again by the grace of God, was seated at the
right hand of the throne of God, and when
you trust Him, He changes you, because you
put on Christ so stand in the power of His
might, this is the gospel.
Are you resting in His truth, righteous-
ness, and His gospel? If you are not then you
need to examine your hearts.

PILLS
Continued From Page 1

"that happy feeling."
It was a vicious cycle-and one not easily
broken.
"I didn't have an appreciation for life. I
didn't have an appreciation for the sun com-
ing up. Kids don't realize how nice it is to
wake up and think: I'm lucky to be alive to
day," she said with exuberance.
Now in her 30s, Terry has seen the top
of the mountain and she's seen the deepest
crevasse of hell. When at the top, she was a
supervisor in her office. When at the bottom,
she was awakened by a co-worker when
she had passed out in front of her computer
after taking a methadone pill.
"I had keyboard marks on my face," she
recalled. "I thought to myself: I should have
tried it with food. I should have tried a quar-
ter, an eighth... ."
Still, the worst was yet to come.
Terry's abuse of prescription pills was
gradual and started in 2003 when she was
given a script for percocet following a dental
procedure.
"And, it was wonderful!" she said of the
painkillers.
The dentist gave her 10 painkillers and
she took them as prescribed. But, she soon
found herself going back to the dentist with
phantom pains so she could get more per-
cocets. The percocets, she said, gave her a
euphoric and "happy feeling."
Still, she was only taking the pills ran-
domly and in small amounts.
Sometime later she went to a local doc-
tor, who performed a medical procedure
on her. He then gave her a prescription for
methadone to help her with her pain. But
when her general practitioner learned she
was taking the methadone, he took them
from her and threw them away.
Then came the migraines with the nau-
sea, the sensitivity to light and the pain-the
excruciating pain. Sometimes the pain was
so bad she would go to the emergency room
at Raulerson Hospital for help.
Finally, the pain from the migraines
reached the point that she had to go else-
where for help. So, she went to a pain clinic
in Boca Raton.
But, the doctor there said she didn't have
the report he needed.
"I had my MRIs, CAT scans and things like
that, but they wanted an EEG. They needed
something to justify giving me the prescrip-
tions," she said. "So, I got the reports they
needed and went back.
"I can tell you, as a young professional
person I was very uncomfortable in that of-
fice. But, they gave me a script for oxycon-
tin and roxycodone for the break-through
pain," she added.
She got her script, went to eat lunch, had
her prescription filled and as she was being
driven out of town she was asleep before
leaving the Boca Raton city limits.
"I took it and went to sleep in just a few
minutes," she said.
Little did Terry know, she was now on the
road to addiction.
That prescription lasted her less than a
month. So, she made another appointment
and continued making appointments every
two weeks. When those scripts ran out, she


"I went in to wake up my son and he asked me, 'Mommy, what
mood are you going to be in when I come home from school?"
I asked him what he meant, and he completely broke down ....
That's when I realized I needed help. I moved back home with
my mom for help. People need that support."
Prescription pill addict and mother of three


would visit her dentist and get 10 more per-
cocets.
"That would just tide me over. That's
where the addiction really started-when I
needed something in between my next ap-
pointment at the pain clinic," said Terry
By her third visit to the pain clinic, Terry
was now getting xanax on top of the pain
killers to help her sleep.
Then, it happened-she ran out too ear-
ly.
"I tried to go a day without it and I got ill. I
felt like I had the flu," she remembered.
So, she made an "urgent appointment."
When she met with the clinic doctor she
broke into tears and told him about some
events going on in her life mainly, the break
up of her marriage. So, the doctor decided
to help her and bumped up her dosage. He
now prescribed her 80mg oxycodone and
30mg roxycodone.
So, what about the cost? Visits to the clin-
ic are over $200 each time and then there's
the cost of the pills-80 oxycodones and up
to 40 roxycodone tablets every two weeks.
"None of this is very expensive when you
have really good insurance," she answered.
By now, she was getting "that happy feel-
ing" within 30 minutes of taking her pills.
"I would take the oxy then, in three hours,
I would take the roxy and in 5 to 10 minutes
I would get the full effect. It was like a snake
bite-they come on really strong and they
drop off just as fast," she explained. "At the
time of the crash, it was time for my next
roxy. And I'm justifying all of this in my mind
because a doctor prescribed it."
At this point, she's less than six months
into her pain management.
She was also running out of her pain kill-
ers early, so she relied on the xanax to help
her sleep-sometimes for as long as three
days straight.
Soon came the realization that she had
lost control of her life.
"I first realized they had complete and
absolute control over my life when I was
grabbing onto the grass in the front yard and
asking my mom to pray with me because I
thought I was going to die," said Terry. "And,
I became so mean-it wasn't that euphoric
feeling any more."
Then, in 2004, it was her 4-year-old son
who made Terry realize that she was a junk-
ie.
"I went in to wake up my son and he
asked me: 'Mommy, what mood are you
going to be in when I come home from
school?' I asked him what he meant, and
he completely broke down," she said, with
her head bowed. "That's when I realized I
needed help, so I moved back home with
my mom for that help. People need that sup-
port."
It was at this point that she was paying
a local individual up to $50 for one 80mg
oxycontin.
"That's when I was at my heaviest," she


said. "I tried snorting, but I had nose drain-
age. I never injected-the stigma probably
had a whole lot to do with that."
Though she tried to beat her addiction,
it would be another 18 months before she
was no longer leaning on prescription pills
for that "happy feeling."
"I fell off the wagon at least six times. But
I never went back to pain clinics and never
went back to oxycodones, either," she said.
It was during a family vacation Terry real-
ized that she had now become hooked on
soma tablets. Soma is a muscle relaxant and
is also known as carisoprodol.
She was to the point that she was tak-
ing three to four somas at a time. Terry was
also getting scripts for xanax, but she would
give them to a friend who was addicted to
them in exchange for "percocet, lortab
anything."
"I was videotaped while on it and that's
what made me decide to kick it-my eyes
were rolled back in my head. The video dis-
gusted me," she recalled. "My family kept
saying: 'You're going to die, you're going to
die!' But I didn't care-as long as I was on
one of those highs.
"I didn't care if I left my son without, be-
cause I knew my family would take care of
him. He'd be fine without me-and prob-
ably better off without this drug abuser," she
said softly, while looking at the floor.
Finally, after a long and arduous battle,
Terry has kicked her prescription pill habit
with therapy and a medication called sub-
oxone. Suboxone blocks the cravings and
withdrawals.
"It was 2006 when I started to see me,
and I liked me. It was the me before the
drugs. I went 18 months without taking any-
thing," she said proudly.
Because she now realizes she has an ad-
dictive personality, Terry is extremely cau-
tious before she ingests any type of medi-
cation. She also worries about damage she
may have done to her liver and kidneys, so
she routinely has tests done to make sure
they are functioning properly.
She also now depends on over-the-
counter products to help her through her
migraines
"For the most part, I tough it out. If it's
really bad I go to a doctor who knows abso-
lutely everything about me. If I have a head-
ache that was really bad he would give me
a sample to help me get over it," explained
Terry.
Terry is an addict. And, no matter what
happens, she always will be. But she has a
new man, a new life and she is once again
enjoying life.
"You're never over it," she said. "But I'm
happy with myself now-and that took a
long time. I'm a stronger person, a more
appreciative person and I believe in myself
now. I believe I can do it."
And, she has.

She said the younger players have learned a
lot so far. Her goal is to make it to districts
this year and make an impression.
"I really hope we make districts. If we
have a good team we can pull for each other
and strengthen our team," she added.
McGee followed in the foot steps of her
older sister Whitney who also played at
Okeechobee High School. She said her long
term goal is to get a scholarship for college
soccer. Another goal is to have lively home
crowds and a lot of support from the com-
munity.
McGee said she also likes being physi-
cally fit and enjoys working out to get ready
for soccer, "I love the body you get from soc-
cer. I like to be physically fit. I also like the
aggressiveness of the sport as it is a rough
sport."
Ingram, who is also an aggressive play-
er, said she also enjoys the toughness and
the rough play of soccer. She said she also
learned that there is no wrong way of play-
ing soccer. She explained that there are
many different ways to play soccer and still
be successful.
"The team is working out hard and we
should all be in good condition and in great
shape. I can't wait until all of our players
come out," she added.

Traffic stop leads to felony I|J: l l ]I


drug possession arrest When Was Your Last Auandedar I


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was arrested on a
felony drug charge after
he was originally stopped
for speeding on Charles
Harvey Blvd.
Patrick J. Leffler, 25,
S.E. 21st Court, was ar-
rested Tuesday, Nov. 2,
on a charge of possession
of a controlled substance
(xanax). He was booked Patrick
into the Okeechobee Leffler
County Jail under a bond
of $5,000.


An arrest report by a detective with the
Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force stated
that Leffler was stopped for doing 50 mph in
a 40 mph zone.
The detective then asked for, and received,
permission to search the Jeep Cherokee be-
ing driven by Leffler. During that search, the
detective's report stated that six xanax pills
were found in a cigarette pack. The pills
weighed 1.8 grams, continued the report.
According to the detective, Leffler said he
had just purchased the pills for $5 each.
It was also confirmed that Leffler did not
have a valid prescription for the prescription
medication, added the detective's report.
The report does not indicate if the man
was issued a citation for speeding.

COLD
Continued From Page 1

Clemente Cisneros Jr. was only 20 years
old when he went missing, after spending
an evening partying with friends at Los Dos
Compadres.
Cisneros, also known as Junior, was last
seen outside the bar around 2 a.m. on Satur-
day, Oct. 19, 2002. Detectives believe he may
have left the bar in a pickup truck.
"He was seen by family and friends
around closing time outside the bar," said
Detective M.D. Faulkner of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), the lead
investigator on the cold case. "He was also
seen at the Angus Bar (on S.R. 70 W) with
two other men."
Detective Faulkner said it's still not clear
if Cisneros was seen at the Angus before
or after he was seen downtown at Los Dos
Compadres.
"He was apparently very intoxicated,"
added OCSO Detective Augustin Saucedo,
who is also working on the case.
Cisneros was 5-foot-9, weighed 165
pounds and had black hair and brown eyes.
He had several tattoos including: CISNEROS
in large block letters on his back; the Virgin
Mary on his chest; and, a tattoo on his right
forearm.
"It's been said that he was killed and we
have received numerous tips over the years
that his body was buried in an open terrain
area in Okeechobee County," said Detective
Faulkner. "We are looking for someone to
give us a more exact location, and suspect
information. I believe there is someone out
there who can provide us with valuable in-
formation."
According to the detectives, the solid facts
of this case are:
no information has been received indi-
cating that Cisneros is still alive;
credible information has been received
indicating that foul play was involved and
that Cisneros was murdered;
he was a single man; and,


he and his brother had been involved in
a confrontation with another man sometime
before Cisneros went missing.
"We're looking for that one piece of in-
formation that will put us in close proxim-
ity to where he was buried," said Detective
Faulkner.
For the Spanish community, Detective
Saucedo added the following:
El Departamento de Sheriff del Condado
de Okeechobee nececita su ayuda con la
investigation de la desaparicion del Senor
Clemente Cisneros Junior que fue visto el
Domingo 20 de Octubre 2002 aprox a las
2:00 a.m. en el Salon Los Dos Compadres
en Okeechobee. Se cree que possiblemente
el Senor fue enterado en el condado de
Okeechobee : Porfavor Pongase en Con-
tacto con el Detective Augustin Saucedo al
863-763-3117 ext 2269 toda information
sera confidencial.
Detective Faulkner went on to add that
he believes this case can be solved and that
there is someone in Okeechobee County
who has the information "... I need to bring
this cold case to a close."
If you have any information on the disap-
pearance of Clemente Cisneros Jr., contact
either Detective M.D. Faulkner or Detective
Augustin Saucedo at 863-763-3117.

Okeechobee High School

wrestling season starts


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Brahman grapplers will once
again be in the mix for a district title
this year.
The Dean of Coaches at OHS,
Bruce Jahner said he has a number of
new wrestlers, but also returns some
veterans who are capable of compet-
ing at the top levels of wrestling.
"I think we have an honest and
a fair shot. We don't have any real
standouts. We have a lot of kids with
wrestling knowledge and we'll be
competitive," he said.
Among the returners are regional
qualifiers like Ryan Hagan, Vance
Wilkerson and Donald Bryant. There
are between 10 and 12 other wrestlers
still playing football so when they re-
turn later this month that will further
boost the squad.
"There still are a lot of unknowns
because the kids are still in football,"
Jahner added.
Jahner has coached Wrestling for
a long time but still has passion for
the sport. He said he continues to be
motivated by the chance to work with
young people. "I still enjoy winning
and I still enjoy watching the kids de-
velop and come into themselves."


Jahner said he is proud of the
progress his wrestlers made during
their three and four year stints in high
school. He said most wrestlers don't
always like what he has them do or
what he tells them but he's proud that
most stuck it out and improved.
"That's our job. We try to do what
we can. We emphasize basic skills
and don't use crazy or fancy things.
We drill things over and over again
until wrestlers are sick of doing it.
When it comes to match time they
know what to do and they take care
of business," he said.
Top district contenders this year
include Jensen Beach and Fort Pierce
Central.
Other key wrestlers on the squad
this year will include Jonathan Kemp,
Harrison O'Connor and Brant Hard-
en.
The season begins with a match
at Martin County High School on Nov.
17. The first home match will be Dec.
1 against Fort Pierce Westwood. The
Brahmans will also host the Big Lake
Wrestling Classic on Saturday, Dec.
11. Ten teams are expected to com-
pete in the Classic including Clewis-
ton, Melbourne, Lakeland and Miami
Braddock.

OHS Brahmans beat Palm Beach Lakes 21-8


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
All the football frustrations and defeats
Okeechobee has experienced this year were
suddenly washed away Friday as Okeechobee
qualified for a playoff berth with a 21-8 victo-
ry at Palm Beach Lakes in West Palm Beach.
Okeechobee will go in to the playoffs as
the runner up in District 15-4A.
"It took us awhile but tonight we played
four quarters," Brahman Coach Myron Jack-
son said, "I'm proud of the kids. They stayed
disciplined. Palm Beach Lakes tried to suck
us up into jawing and shoving and it might
have cost us. That is a testament to our focus
and the fact that we put team ahead of our-
selves," he added.
Jackson was mostly pleased with the focus
his team had in practice in the last few week.
He said the kids continued to work hard de-
spite six losses in a row.
Okeechobee got another big night from
sophomore QB Jack Radebaugh. He was
nearly flawless in the first half in the passing
game. He opened the scoring with a 36 yard
pass to Alonzo Coleman in the first quarter.
Coleman had three big catches for 53 yards in
the game and has really come on at the end of
his high school career.
"I'm just taking it one step at a time and
working on fundamentals. On the touchdown
I was just trying to get to the end zone and just
thinking about the end zone. All I saw was
the ball and the defender and I knew I had to
break away," he added.


Coleman, a quiet, confident player, also
made a key play on defense in the fourth quar-
ter as he helped Okeechobee's defense have a
goal line stand with a QB sack.
"I feel like we played our first complete
game. We performed and didn't give up. We
never thought we had this game, we just per-
formed," he said.
Okeechobee also got a 54 yard touchdown
pass from Radebaugh to Colby Frank in the
first half. Frank somehow grabbed the long
pass in a battle with a defender. He raced all
the way to the end zone after he made the cir-
cus catch around the Lakes 30 yard line.
"It was pretty much a blur. I ran down the
field and caught the ball, grabbed it from the
guy with one hand and just ran as fast as I
could to score," he said.
Okeechobee's third touchdown came after
a Deforest Shanks interception in the third
quarter. Okeechobee drove 35 yards in six
plays behind the legs of Erick McQueen.
Radebaugh scored on a one yard QB sneak to
make it 21-0.
Radebaugh also had another chance to
score in the first half after Jesse Thomas
picked off a Marquis Williams pass and re-
turned it 78 yards to the Rams three yard line.
Unfortunately for the Brahmans the center
exchange went awry on third and goal and the
Rams recovered at the one yard line.
The Rams rallied in the second half with
a six play, 67 yard drive of their own. Tirell
Tillman had a 24 yard run on the drive. He
scored the touchdown on a three yard run.
The drive took just over one minute.


For awhile it looked like the Rams would
rally and make a game of it. Okeechobee
threw two interceptions to give the Rams
chances in the fourth quarter. One drive ended
at the Brahman 10 after Coleman's big play.
Two other Ram drives in the fourth quar-
ter inside the Brahman 20 yard line ended in
fumbles.
McQueen had only a modest 60 yards on
21 carries but played perhaps his best game as
a high school player. He added a pass recep-
tion for an eight yard gain.
McQueen said it was all about leadership,
"I had to lead my team tonight. I told them I
got them 100 percent and I play for them and
they play for me. I feel great because this is
one of the best games we've had all year," he
added.
McQueen showed his heart and passion by
trying to hurdle over a pile of players in the
first half in a play near the Ram goal line.
Deforest Shanks had 38 yards rushing for
Okeechobee.
The Brahman defense had a team effort
that caused four Ram turnovers. Linemen
Ben Estey said both the defensive and the
offensive lines did a better job at the line of
scrimmage because they have worked on their
strength and leverage.
"We really played well and never quit.
Lakes also played to the end. We just have
been practicing hard trying to get better," he
said. Okeechobee plays at Clewiston next Fri-
day to wrap up the regular season. Okeecho-
bee will play the Champion of District 14-4A
on the road on Friday, Nov. 19.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
AND FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
AGENCY: Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)
ACTION: NobceofAvailability (NOA)
SUMMARY: The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has issued a Finding of No
Significant Impact (FONSI) for approving the construction and paving of
Flowing Well Road on the Brighton Reservation of the Seminole Indian
Tribe of Florida. This road is anticipated to improve safety and access to
Tribal member's homes. Wetland impacts will be fully mitigated through
an Army Corps of Engineers permit. The BIA has approved and adopted
the Environmental Assessment (EA), dated August 2010, prepared by the
Seminole Tribe of Florida Environmental Resource Management Depart
ment and entitled "Environmental Assessment, Flowing Well Road Con-
structon, Seminole Indian Tribe of Florida Brghton Reservation, Glades
County, Florida-. This EA has been adopted and FONSI issued for the ap-
proval of the road construction in compliance with the National Environ
mental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969.
NOTICE: This is a Notice of Availablimty (NOA), that the EA and FONSI for
the Federal action of approving the proposed road construcbon are
available for pubic review. The BIA has approved and adopted the above
referenced EA which addressed this proposal. The FONSI determination
was based on review and analysis of the information in the EA. Based on
the EA, it has been determined that the action will not result in significant
impacts to the quality of the human environment, therefore, an Environ-
mental Impact Statement is not required. You may obtain a copy of the
EA and FONSI from the BIA Eastern Regional Office or the Environmental
Resources Management Department of the Seminole Tribe of Florida,
6365 Taft Street, Suite 3008, Hollywood, FL 33024, telephone
(954) 965-4380.
APPEALS: "This FONSI Is a finding on environmental effects, not a decision
to proceed with an action, therefore cannot be appealed. 25 C.FR. Part
2.7 requires a 30 day appeal period after the decision to proceed with the
action is made before the action may be implemented. Appeal informa-
bon will be made publicly available when the decision to proceed is
made."

mental Scientist, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Eastern Regional Office, 545
