Road conditions in the Viking
area are steadily improving. At a
special meeting of the Coquina
Water Control District Board of
Supervisors, held at the shop on
Tuesday, Nov. 30, supervisors and
staff discussed what roads to try to
improve in the coming fiscal year.
They decided to work on Four
Mile Grade from Peavine Trail east
to East Line Road and on Two Mile
Grade west to where it ends at the
Triple Diamond Ranch. After that
section of Two Mile Grade was
completed they decided to work
on the road going north from the
west end of Two Mile Grade north-
ward to Three Mile Grade. As with
previous road work, at intersec-


tions they would work on the
crossroads for a short distance in
each direction. Chairman Melvin

OPINION


Wednesday, December 1, 2010


Public Forum/Speak Out


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!

I-dosing
As for what I think about iDosing: well,
firstly, the name is ridiculous, but as to the
actual dangerousness of it all... I'd have to
guess it's a little exaggerated. All they're re-
ally doing is bombarding the brain with so
much information that it brings the brain to
a point of sensory overload, in which case
the brain starts making up it's own sensa-
tions, just like it would if you were put in
a sensory depravation chamber. It's really
just a clever trick of the brain and not much
more. You can do the same thing with white
noise, a red light and a ping-pong ball. That
was discovered over 60 years ago. As to
whether or not different sound waves could
give different highs, I can't really comment
on that other than to say that the possibil-
ity is intriguing, that induced euphoria and
stimulation without any sort of "real" medi-
cine is phenomenal. Think of the medical
benefits: the ability to put hospital patients
at ease without the use of addiction-prone
drugs, to maybe even coax the brain into
creating certain enzymes or cell types.

K-2 or "Spice"
The idea was to make a synthetic can-
nabis to give people the same medicinal val-
ue and attributes of actual cannabis without
all the legal hassle in the European systems;
however, for the most part, they messed
up, getting all sorts of non-cannabanoids in
the mix and producing something infinitely
more dangerous than the cannabis they
were originally trying to replicate. If canna-
bis were to be legalized in today's economy,
then there would be no worry toward any
of the issues spice causes, not to mention it
would be entirely more difficult for anyone
under the age of 21 to obtain it.
K-2 or "Spice" is no longer legal. Ac-
cording to the news, the DEA has banned
the sale. So anyone selling it now is breaking
the law. If you hear of any store still selling
this stuff, call the cops!


Should mentally-disabled man
go to prison?
In regard to the case that was in the
paper on Sunday of the big man who has
the mentality of a child who is facing prison,
the whole thing is so sad. He never really did
anything wrong. People were just afraid of
him because he is so big and he gets con-
fused and doesn't realize he is frightening
people. Some kind of mental health agency
needs to step in and help him.

Palin
As long as the Progressives keep focus-
ing on Gov. Palin, they'll continue to miss
what is happening elsewhere. God Bless
America.
As long as we're focused on Palin, that's
ex-Gov. Palin.
You must mean the one who now has
more time to write books and attend speak-
ing engagements, energizing the Republican
party and raising campaign funds to try and
beat those who lied about her and sought
to tie her up in court battles until she was
bankrupt.
No, I was talking about the Palin that
can see Russia from her house and said last
week on Glenn Beck that North Korea was
our ally.
At least she doesn't see dead people.
So obviously, Mr. Obama can now be
hammered for his own errors. Oh wait, the
media won't focus there, will it?
It seems that it is the media that is
having a field day focusing on her, televis-
ing her every move/book-signing stop and
giving her exposure through two reality TV
shows. Liberals have expressed hope that
she becomes the Republican nominee for
president in order to make their job easier
to keep the White House. They don't need
to focus on her since the media is taking
care of that themselves. If anything, it is
the Tea Party and grassroots conservatives
who seem to be fixed on her rather than the
other potential conservative and Republican
candidates. I predict, and I hope, that she
will not become the Republican nominee
because the Republican party has stronger
candidates than Palin-the establishment
Republicans and bigwigs will turn on her in
a heartbeat if they feel she is hurting their
chance to win. I hope the Republicans don't
pick her because I want both parties to field
the best possible candidate.

Holiday traditions include hunting


By Tony Young
FWC
There's finally a chill
and a certain festiveness
in the air as most of us try
to take time off from work
to enjoy spending qual-
ity time with family and
friends and reflect on the Tony Young
passing year. Children will
be out of school on winter break soon, and
while the holiday season is upon us, so are
several traditional hunting opportunities.
The second phase of waterfowl and coot
season comes in statewide Dec. 11 and runs
through Jan. 30. In addition to the usual hunt
ing license and permit requirements, duck
hunters also must have a Florida waterfowl
permit ($5) and a federal duck stamp ($15).
The daily bag limit on ducks is six, but
you need to know your ducks before you
pull the trigger, because there are different
daily limits for each species. For instance,
within the six-bird limit there may be only
one black duck, one mottled duck, one ful-
vous whistling-duck and one canvasback.
Only two of your six-bird limit may be
pintails, redheads or scaup, and three may
be wood ducks. And you may have no more
than four scoters and four mallards (of
which only two may be female) in your bag.
All other species of ducks can be taken up to
the six-bird limit, except harlequin ducks.
The daily limit on coots is 15, and there's
a five-bird limit on mergansers, only two of
which may be hooded.
When hunting waterfowl, hunters may
use only non-toxic shotgun shells. In fact, it's
illegal for hunters even to possess lead shot
when waterfowl hunting. Only iron (steel),
bismuth-tin and various tungsten-alloys are
permissible.
For something different, try woodcock
hunting. Woodcock season runs Dec. 18
Jan. 16. Woodcocks are excellent game
birds because they hold well for pointing
bird dogs and provide a challenging shot
when flushed. The daily bag limit is three.
The third phase of mourning and white-
winged dove season opens Dec. 11 and
runs through Jan. 9. The daily bag limit is
15 birds.
From November on, shooting hours for
all migratory birds are one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset. You must get a no-cost
migratory bird permit where you purchase


Additional copies of the newspaper are available for
50 cents Wednesday and Friday and 75 cents for
Sunday at the office. Home delivery subscriptions
are available at $18.00 for three months.

your hunting license before you hunt any of
these birds, though.
The only firearm you can use to hunt mi-
gratory game birds is a shotgun, no larger
than 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to
a three-shell capacity (magazine and cham-
ber combined). Bows also are legal.
Retrievers and bird dogs can be useful in
hunting migratory game birds. Artificial de-
coys, as well as manual or mouth-operated
bird calls, also are legal and essential gear
for duck hunters.
You may hunt migratory game birds
over an agricultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted by regular agricultural
methods. However, don't even think about
"sweetening" the field by scattering agricul-
tural products over it -or anywhere near it
-or you could wind up in serious trouble.
It doesn't matter if you aren't the one who
scattered the bait. If you knew or should've
known that such bait was present, you're ac-
countable under federal law.
Some other things you can't do while
hunting migratory game birds include using
rifles, pistols, crossbows, traps, snares, nets,
sinkboxes, swivel guns, punt guns, battery
guns, machine guns, fish hooks, poisons,
drugs, explosive substances, live decoys
and recorded bird calls, sounds or electri-
cally amplified bird-call imitations. It is also
against the law to shoot from a moving auto-
mobile or boat and herd or drive birds with
vehicles or vessels.
Bobcat and otter hunting season is Dec.
1 March 1, and there's no daily bag or sea-
son limit on either species.
Like foxes, bobcats may be chased year-
round with dogs, but possessing firearms
during the closed season, between March 2
and Nov. 30, is prohibited. On a few wildlife
management areas, bobcats and otters may
not be taken, so please consult the specific
area brochure before you hunt.
Whether upland bird hunting with friends
and family, shooting ducks on the pond with
your favorite lab or taking that big bobcat as
he slips up behind an unsuspecting fawn,
December has the hunting opportunities
you're looking for.
Here's wishing you happy holidays and
a successful hunting season. If you can,
remember to introduce someone new to
our great sport. As always, have fun, hunt
safely and ethically, and we'll see you in the
woods!

Fitness for two: exercise during your pregnancy


The March of Dimes
explains the benefits of
exercise during pregnancy

Exercise is good for pregnant women.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) recommends that healthy
pregnant women get at least 212 hours of
moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week.
It's best to spread this exercise throughout
the week. This means that pregnant women
should try to do 30 minutes of an aerobic
activity on most, if not all days.
Regular physical activity leads to im-
proved fitness for pregnant women. It
helps keep the heart, mind and entire body
healthy. It can ease many common discom-
forts of pregnancy, such as constipation,
backache, fatigue, sleep disturbances and
varicose veins. Regular exercise also may
help prevent pregnancy-related forms of dia-
betes and high blood pressure. Fit women
may be able to cope better with labor and
recover faster after birth.
Pregnant women who have not been
physically active should consider gradually
increasing their activities or starting a mild
exercise program to gain some of these
health benefits. However, all pregnant wom-
en should check with their health care pro-
vider before starting or continuing exercise.
Women who do not want to participate
in a traditional exercise program can get
many of the health benefits of exercise by
doing something physically active, like going
for a walk.

Are there any pregnant women
who should not exercise?
Exercise is good for pregnant women,
except in certain circumstances. Women
should not exercise while pregnant if they
have:
Heart disease that compromises blood
flow;
Preterm labor;
Incompetent cervix, a defect of the cer-
vix that can cause pregnancy loss or prema-
ture birth;
Restrictive lung disease;
Multiple gestation (twins, triplets or
more), which increases the risk for preterm
labor Persistent vaginal bleeding in the
second or third trimester;

Pregnancy Center to

host Open House
The Pregnancy Center of Okeechobee
has moved and we are having an Open
House Party to celebrate. Please join us
at 500 N.W Sixth Street, Okeechobee on
Monday, Dec. 6, from 4 until 7 p.m. Come
take a tour of our new center and enjoy
Christmas treats. For more information,
please call us at 863-467-8748. Please help
us to help our young women by bringing
a diaper bag filled with baby items.


Ruptured membranes (bag of waters);
Preeclampsia, a pregnancy-related
form of high blood pressure; and,
Placenta previa, a low-lying placenta
that covers part or all of the opening of the
cervix during the third trimester.
Does pregnancy change how
a woman's body responds to
physical activity?
Yes. During pregnancy, a woman's body
changes in a number of ways that alter her
response to physical activity:
Breathing: Pregnant women require
more oxygen than non-pregnant women,
even at rest. As pregnancy progresses, wom-
en have to work harder to breathe because
the enlarging uterus crowds the diaphragm
(the large muscle separating the chest and
abdomen). These changes mean that there
is less oxygen available for use during physi-
cal activity, making it easier to become out
of breath.
Heart rate: A pregnant woman's heart
works harder and beats quicker to supply
oxygen to the baby. As a result, she may
have less energy for physical activity. Her
cardiovascular system also responds differ-
ently to certain body positions. If a woman
in her second or third trimester exercises
while lying flat on her back, her expanding
uterus may compress the major vein that
carries blood back to the heart from the legs.
This causes her heart to beat more slowly. A
slow heartbeat can cause dizziness and in-
terfere with normal blood flow to the uterus.
Motionless standing also causes the heart to
beat more slowly.
Body temperature: Some studies suggest
that a pregnant woman's body dissipates
heat more efficiently than a non-pregnant
woman's body. A pregnant woman starts
sweating at a lower body temperature than


a non-pregnant woman, so her tempera-
ture actually falls slightly during exercise.
This adaptation may help protect the baby.
Pregnant women should avoid overheating,
especially during the first trimester, because
a sustained body temperature of 102.5 F
or higher may increase the risk for certain
birth defects of the brain and spine. How-
ever, studies have not shown any increase
in these or other birth defects among babies
of women who exercise vigorously during
pregnancy.
Balance: Pregnancy alters a woman's
sense of balance. The enlarging uterus and
breasts shift her center of gravity.
Joints: High hormone levels make a preg-
nant woman's connective tissues more lax,
and her joints may be more susceptible to
injury.

What are some guidelines
for exercising safely during
pregnancy?
A pregnant woman should check with her
health care provider to make sure the activi
ties she chooses are safe during pregnancy.
The following precautions can help assure
that an exercise program is safe for mother
and baby. A pregnant woman should:
Avoid contact sports and any activities
that can cause even mild trauma to the
abdomen, such as ice hockey, kickboxing,
soccer and basketball. Avoid activities with
a high risk for falling, such as gymnastics,
horseback riding, downhill skiing and rac-
quet sports.
Avoid scuba diving. This activity puts the
baby at increased risk for decompression
sickness and may contribute to miscarriage,
birth defects, poor fetal growth and preterm
labor.
Avoid exercising on her back after the
first trimester. She also should avoid pro-

Okeechobee men accused of home break-ins


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Two local men have been arrested in con-
nection with two home burglaries in which
items valued at over $6,000 were reportedly
stolen.
Charged in the cases are Joshua Tony
Brookins with two counts of burglary and
two counts of grand theft, and David Shar-
rod with one count of burglary and one
count of grand theft.
Bond for Brookins, 21, N.W 17th St., has
been set at $55,000. Bond for Sharrod, 27,
N.W Sixth St., has been set at $40,000. Jail
records indicate that both men were still


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) has a suggestion for
anyone shopping for a boater this holiday. A
new, comfortable, life jacket makes an ideal
gift, and it could save someone's life.
As FWC officers patrol Florida's water-
ways, one of their main responsibilities is
to help residents and visitors boat safely. Of-
ficers often check boaters for adherence to
safety regulations and educate them about
safe boating practices. Unfortunately, at
other times, FWC officers are called to the
scene of boating accidents.
"Frequently, a life jacket can save a life
during a boating accident," said Capt. Tom
Shipp, of the FWC's Boating and Waterways
Section. Many of the boating accidents the
FWC investigates involve drowning deaths.
Last year, there were 65 boating fatalities -
45 of them by drowning. The FWC confirms
that life jackets may have saved those lives
and recommends boaters wear one at all
times on the water.


in jail as of Tuesday after-
noon, Nov. 30.
An arrest report by De-
tective Ted Van Deman of
the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) in-
dicates that Brookins broke
into homes on S.E. 12th
Joshua Tony Drive and S.E. Fourth St.
Brookins Sharrod, added the report,
is accused of taking part in
the break-in of the home on S.E. Fourth St.
The detective's report stated that Brookins
broke into the S.E. 12th Drive home and took
two flat screen televisions, a Gucci watch, an
I-Pod, a laptop computer and an electronic


"A lot of people don't wear life jackets
because they feel they're uncomfortable,"
Shipp said. "However, with newer models,
such as belt packs or suspenders, you hardly
feel them. Replacing an old, bulky life jacket
with a newer model makes a great gift."
Belt-pack and suspender life jackets are
inflatable. Some inflate automatically when
a person falls into the water, while others in-
flate after the wearer pulls a cord. Prices of
the belt-pack and suspender life jackets start
at approximately $60.
"Many people don't expect to need a life
jacket, particularly if they feel they are good
swimmers," Shipp said. "However, when
boating accidents happen, you may not be
able to rely on your swimming skills."
Bottom line: If you fall overboard with a
life jacket, your chances of survival are great-
ly enhanced. This holiday season, the gift of
a life jacket could be a gift of life. For more
boating safety information, visit MyFWC.

Coast Guard Auxiliary has boating course
The Coast Guard Auxiliary is offering the Florida boat safety program on Saturday,
Dec. 11, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Okee-Tantie. Cost is $35 per person or $100 for a family
of four or more. This boating safety program is mandatory for anyone born after Jan.
1, 1988 who wishes to operate a boat in Florida. Those who successfully complete the

gaming system. Together,
the items were valued at
$4,400. In the other theft,
the two men took camer-
as and a laptop computer
that had a total value of
$2,275, added the detec-
tive.
David According to Detec-
Sharrod tive Van Deman, Brookins
gained entry into the
home on S.E. 12th Drive by breaking out the
glass in the back door. In the second break-
in, the men gained entry by kicking in the
back door, the detective added. That door
has been repaired at a cost of $2,222.96.

Pet of the Week
Chipper is a male Lab mix of medi-
um size and is only six months old.
He is so very sweet; always wants
to please and give kisses. Chipper
gets along well with other dogs.
The adoption fee is $135. He is neu-
tered; has been paper trained and is
up to date on all vaccinations. He is
available for adoption at Okeecho-
bee Humane Society/Pet Rescue on

Many of the items reportedly stolen were
recovered at Brookins' home, said the detec-
tive.
"We believe he was trying to sell them
but he just hadn't got it done yet," Detective
Van Deman said.
The OCSO detective said the I-Pod, a
camera and one lap top have yet to be re-
covered.
The detective's report went on to state
that fingerprints were found on one of the
televisions. OCSO Crime Scene Technician
Jacqueline Moore compared those prints
with other prints on file and determined that
they belonged to Brookins.

Festival of Trees fundraiser helps Hospice


Special to the Okeechobee News/WM
For the third year in a row Waste Man-
agement's Okeechobee Landfill, Inc.
has submitted a unique entry into
Hospice's Annual Festival of Trees
fundraiser event. This year the staff
at Okeechobee Landfill used scraps
of yard waste to create the company's
'recycled reindeer' entry. "The landfill
staff always enjoys challenging our-
selves to create a green entry that will
also be popular and generate a nice
donation bid for Hospice," explained
WM representative Jenny Pung. "I was
especially excited about making the
reindeer this year, because they were
a Christmas decoration my Grandma
used to have in her yard and we just
feel they have the potential of fitting in
well in many Okeechobee yards."


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
A forest of Christmas trees greets the
visitor to the Hospice Home, 411 S.E. Fourth
Street. The annual Festival of Trees fundrais-
er includes Christmas trees of all sizes and
colors as well as wreaths and other holiday
decorations.
Approximately 60 trees and decorative
items were donated by local clubs, business-
es, schools, churches and individuals. The
items will be sold by silent auction. Those
who visit the festival write their bids on the
sheet designated for that item. The high bid
at the close of the festival on Sunday evening
will purchase the item.
Themes for the trees often reflect the
interests of those who decorated the tree.
A tree from Healthy Start is festooned with
pacifiers and soft toys. The Okeechobee
Public Library donated a tree decorated
with children's books. UF fans from Bass
Funeral Home donated an orange and blue
Florida Gators wreath. Several 4H clubs do-
nated trees such as a "Cowboy Christmas"
tree from the Bits and Spurs Horse Club; a
cow theme tree from the Udder Bunch Dairy
Club; and, a pig themed tree from the Swine
Time Club.
The Methodist Youth Group highlighted
their interest in finding a cure for cancer


with "Find the Cure" tree, decorated with
pink ornaments and the word "Hope."
The trees range from table top size to
over seven feet tall. Decorative items for sale
include a colorful holiday quilt donated by
the Tantie Quilters and wooden reindeer
suitable for outdoor display donated by
Waste Management.


The Festival of Trees silent auction con-
tinues through Sunday.
The event will be open 8 a.m. to noon
Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday and
Saturday hours are 8 a.m. to noon and 6 to 9
p.m. For more information about the festival
please see the Hospice web page www.hos-

Library host
Florida author Deborah Sharp has at-
tended many lovely weddings. Not a single
detail from those elegant affairs made it into
"Mama Gets Hitched," the latest installment
in her funny Mace Bauer Mystery series.
"When Mama ties the knot for the fifth
time, her ceremony is completely over the
top. We're talking tacky, tacky, tacky," says
Ms. Sharp, who urges readers to show up in
hideous formal wear for her book signing.
Ms. Sharp, 56, a former USA Today re-
porter, sets her books in a fictional Florida
town like Okeechobee. She'll be the guest of
honor on Thursday, Dec. 9, for an author's
tea at the Okeechobee Public Library. Light
refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m. At
6 p.m., she'll discuss "Mama Gets Hitched."


The Indian River State College Hallstrom
Planetarium on the Main Campus in Fort
Pierce announces its three holiday shows
-Star of Wonder, a Treasure Coast favorite;
Upon A Midnight Clear, a live concert event;
and Eclipse!, a special one-night grand phe-
nomenon of nature.
A holiday favorite, Star of Wonder, will
recreate the skies as they appeared 2,000
years ago. Viewers will trace what may have
been the path of the mysterious star followed
by the Wise Men, showing the constellations
and the locations of planets. "What was it in
the sky that compelled the Magi to embark
on a journey of hundreds of miles across
desert and mountains?" asked Jon Bell, Hall-
strom Planetarium Director. "This program
will bring the audience one step closer to
understanding." Star of Wonder will be pre-
sented on Dec. 3 & 4 and Dec. 10 & 11, on
Friday at 7 & 8 p.m. and on Saturday at 1 & 2
p.m. Tickets are $3 each.
A live one-night special concert, Upon A
Midnight Clear, will feature electronic mu-
sic of the season "under the planetarium
stars" by world-renowned composer and


Ls 'meet the author' event


The event is free, and open to the public. For
more information, contact the library: 206
SW 16th St., Okeechobee.
"Hitched" continues the misadventures
of Mama, who displays a knack for mischief
along with serial matrimony. This time, she's
planning the Wedding of the Century, com-
plete with a "Gone With the Wind" theme,
Scarlett O'Hara gowns for her long-suffering
daughters, and her pet Pomeranian as ring-
bearer. What's a Bridezilla to do, though,
when her caterer is found dead at the VFW,
even before the first pig-in-a-blanket is
passed?
Readers can expect to see the author in
the "Mama veil," made famous when she
appeared on NBC's Today Show in August


to talk about the latest book set in her native
state.
"Hitched" is a follow-up to last year's
"Mama Rides Shotgun." That book was set
on Florida's annual Cracker Trail Ride, a
cross-state horseback trek that follows the
route of old cattle drives. Sharp completed
the ride as research. Mastering wedding mi-
nutiae and watching "Bridezillas" was more
painful than spending six days in the saddle,
she says.
She lives in Ft. Lauderdale with husband
Kerry Sanders, a reporter for NBC News.
They have property in Okeechobee County,
where they hope to someday build a home.

Teamwork leads to drug arrest


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Teamwork within the
Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) has
led to the arrest of a local
man on drug charges.
Justin Jenkins, 26, S.E.
36th Terrace, was arrested
Sunday, Nov. 28, on a fel-
ony charge of possession
of cocaine with intent to Justin
sell. He was also arrested Jenkins
on misdemeanor charges
of possession of marijuana under 20 grams
and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jail records indicate that Jenkins was
booked into the Okeechobee County Jail
early Sunday under a bond of $6,000, and
was released on bond that afternoon.
According to an arrest report by a detec-
tive with the Okeechobee Narcotics Task
Force, this case actually started Thursday,
Nov. 11, when Jenkins was seen walking
away from a vehicle at the intersection of
N.W 1lth St. and N.W Eighth Ave. around
midnight with something in his hand.
When the detective approached Jenkins
a strong odor of marijuana could be detect-
ed but a search of the man's person came
up empty, continued the report. Also, added
the report, Jenkins had nothing in his hand.
Jenkins was allowed to leave but the task


force detective stayed behind to search the
area, which was now covered with dew.
OCSO K-9 Widgen was brought to the
scene and alerted to a drink cup in the area
where the detective had seen Jenkins stand-
ing. Although the area was wet with dew,
stated the detective's report, the cup was
dry.
Inside the cup was suspected marijuana
along with both crack and powder cocaine,
added the report.
The cup and its contents were given to
OCSO Crime Scene Technician Detective
Mark Shireman who processed everything
for fingerprints. Latent fingerprints were
found on a prescription pill bottle containing
suspected crack cocaine, the report stated.
Crime Scene Technician Jacqueline
Moore then reportedly identified those prints
as belonging to Jenkins.
The task force detective then said that the
substances found in the cup were tested and
indicated positive results for the presence of
both cocaine and marijuana. The detective
said the suspected crack cocaine weighed 5
grams and had an estimated street value of
about $1,000; the powder cocaine weighed
less than 1 gram and had an estimated value
of between $50 and $100; and, the suspect-
ed marijuana weighed 4 grams and had a
street value of $40.
After all of this information was put to-
gether, Jenkins was then arrested Sunday at
1:07 a.m.


Man accused of hitting woman with pot


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A local man has been booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail after being accused
of hitting a woman in the head with a cook-
ing pot.
Michael Alexander Mitchel, 56, N.E. Fifth
Trail, was arrested Friday, Nov. 26, on a fel-
ony charge of aggravated battery and a mis-
demeanor charge of assault. His bond has
been set at $11,500, and jail records indicate
that he is still in custody.
Mitchel, who is currently on parole, be-
came involved in an argument with a wom-
an and threw an 8-quart cooking pot at the
woman, stated an arrest report by Deputy
Keith Murrish, of the Okeechobee County


Sheriff's Office (OCSO). The pot hit the
woman behind the left ear and left a swol-
len area about the size of a golf ball, added
the deputy's report.
The victim also had a swollen area at the
base of her neck, the report continued.
According to the report, Mitchel and the
woman were arguing over her animals and
the fact that he did not want her living in the
house. The victim reportedly told Deputy
Murrish that Mitchel said he would kill her if
she reported the incident.
Department of Corrections (DOC) re-
cords show that Mitchel was sentenced to
prison Oct. 15, 1981, following his convic-
tion for robbery with a gun/deadly weapon.
He was released from prison July 26, 2007,
but remains on parole.


Couple charged with battering woman


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A husband and wife were arrested late
last week, accused of pushing an elderly
woman to the floor of her home and at-
tacking her after she asked them to give
back the keys to her vehicle.
Arrested Friday, Nov. 26, on a felony
charge of battery on a person over the age
of 65 were Gregory Blaine Foss, 47, S.E.
28th St., and his wife April Alesca Foss, 44.
They were both booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail under a bond of $2,500
each.
An arrest report by Deputy Max Waldron
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office


(OCSO) stated that April Foss and the vic-
tim were arguing when she pushed the
older woman to the floor. When the victim
started to get up, Gregory Foss pushed her
back down, got on top of her and grabbed
her throat, the report continued.
At this point, another man entered the
home and tried to stop the altercation.
However, stated Deputy Waldron, Gregory
Foss struck the man in the face with his el-
bow while April Foss punched him.
The alleged fracas was finally broken up
by another neighbor.
Deputy Waldron said although the vic-
tim's neck was red she declined medical
treatment, as did all of the others involved.

Byars said he would get a progress report

be easy to monitor the spending. If funds

tion and set priorities. Mr. Byars said that if
necessary a special meeting could be called

unnecessary for this production," says the
theatre's coordinator/director, Ron Hayes.
"The play is presented in the form of a
1950s radio show with live sound effects cre-
ated on stage, and the magic of 'theater of
the mind' takes over."
This is the second such production
staged by the OCT, following last year's suc-
cess with "It's a Wonderful Life" in a simi-
lar format. The players perform in period
costumes, surrounded by a radio studio set,
with vintage microphones and sound effects
paraphernalia. Besides the uniqueness of
the setting, the show receives added interest
from the on-stage antics of the actors, and
live commercials, including a singing jingle.
The play, by Andrew Fenady, is based on
his best-selling novel of the same name, and
follows a comically-dramatic plot-line which
is very reminiscent of the movies it affec-
tionately spoofs. Eleven cast members play


to determine priorities.
It was noted that at one point on Four
Mile Grade a culvert would be needed. En-
gineer Bryan Clemmons would work on
drainage in that area.
Supervisors also got a chance to see the
new $164,000 road grader Coquina bought
to replace their old, worn out one.
Before adjourning, the board made an
inspection tour of the roads they had dis-
cussed improving.


a total of 25 parts. John Garner appears as
the Bogart character, Sam Marlow, and Matt
Garner turns in a convincing Peter Lorre im-
personation in the role of the unscrupulous
Mr. Zebra. Genna Lute provides the voice of
Marlow's secretary, "The Duchess," who is
"built like Marilyn Monroe, and makes as
much sense as Gracie Allen." Other per-
formers include Mike Zierden, Billy McCull-
ers, Harry Moldenhauer, Michael White, Bob
Steiner, Jacque Hayes, Joyce Taylor and Lau-
rie Garner. The busy on-stage sound effects
men are Kevin Lute and Wesley Beam.
The theatre's current season will con-
clude in March with the comedy, "Dixie
Swim Club" from the same writing team
responsible for past OCT hits, "Dearly Be-
loved" and "Christmas Belles."
The Okeechobee Community Theatre is
an all-volunteer organization which pres-
ents Broadway-style comedies, dramas and
musicals. For information on the theatre's
activities, call Ron or Jacque Hayes at 863-
763-1307, or visit the theatre website, okee-

in tourney
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
South Fork avenged a loss just one week
earlier as they rallied past the Okeechobee
Brahmans to win the consolation game of
the Martin County Turkey Classic, 46-41 last
Tuesday in high school girl's basketball ac-
tion in Stuart.
Two of the area's top guards, Essence Wil-
liams of the Brahmans and Mariah Newkirk
of South Fork squared off in the game and
the two combined for 50 of the games 87
points.
Newkirk had 30 points to lead the Lady
Bulldogs while Williams had 20 points to
lead Okeechobee, (2-3).
Okeechobee led 12-8 after the first quar-
ter and 25-14 at the half. South Fork out-
scored Okeechobee 18-8 in the third quarter
and 14-8 in the fourth quarter to complete
the comeback.
"We did a good job on the defensive end
in the first half as we held them to only 14
points," Brahman Coach Erin Morrow said,
"They came out big in the third quarter and
our defensive effort wasn't there. We started
to get frustrated and we never got it back."
Miranda Serrano had 10 points and Ami
Edwards added seven points for Okeecho-
bee. Chanice Whitton had 10 points for
South Fork, (1-3).
"It was a disappointing loss since we beat
this team handily last week. We lost a game
that we shouldn't have. Hopefully we can
move on as we have a lot of games coming
up. We hope to improve by Christmas time,"
Morrow added.

Girls basketball team defeats Clewiston 51-11


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Janet Smith scored 12 points and
Okeechobee High School's girls basketball
team jumped out to a 29-0 lead before al-
lowing a basket as they defeated the Lady
Tigers of Clewiston Monday night at the
Brahman gymnasium, 51-11.
Defensive intensity was at its peak early
in the game as Okeechobee and Clewiston
battled in their annual rivalry same.


Coach Erin Morrow said she told her girls
to come to the court and play hard because
Clewiston would be a scrappy opponent.
"Defensively the effort was there. I told them
we had to box out tonight. We did a great
job of coming out and executing."
Okeechobee dominated the boards and
got a lot of steals on defense. Defensive
wizard Jodi Raulerson was constantly ball
hawking and disrupting the Tiger passing
lanes. Okeechobee led 20-0 at the end of the
first quarter.
Clewiston got very frustrated at times and
had a couple of technical fouls called in the


first half, one on a player and one on their
head coach. The referees drew the ire of Ti-
ger fans on a number of occasions.
"I was proud of our team because we
kept our heads in the game and stuck to
our game plan. We matured a little bit. We
could have let this game get out of control
but we played our game and we controlled
the game," Morrow added.
Okeechobee led 29-4 at the half and led
by over 40 points on several occasions in the
second half.
Essence Williams had 11 points and
six steals for Okeechobee. Ami Edwards


grabbed 10 rebounds and scored nine
points. Miranda Serrano also had a strong
game on the boards for Okeechobee, (3-3).
Coach Morrow said she said the team still
needs to improve their offensive half court
game. She also would like to see more ca-
maraderie among the players.
"I was glad to see this effort tonight. We
passed the ball more than usual. Our defen-
sive is where we will win games because that
gives us fast break opportunities," she said.
The Lady Brahmans host Boynton Beach
on Thursday night. Junior Varsity tips at 5:30
p.m. The varsity game begins at 7 p.m.


Okeechobee News/Charles Murphy
Miranda Serrano's back door pass
found Essence Williams and two points
for Okeechobee as the Lady Brahmans
vaulted to a 20-0 lead Monday.


Okeechobee High girls soccer team plays St. Lucie West


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
St. Lucie West Centennial won their
first match of the year in a rugged, physical
battle at Okeechobee Monday night, 5-1, in
high school girl's soccer action.
Several yellow cards were issued to
players after several aggressive plays, and
there was even some pushing and shoving
among the players.
Brahman Coach Julie Bohannon said
she was disappointed to see the physical
play. She told her team to always keep their
heads and play their game.
"St. Lucie West got out there and played
rough. Our girls got rough too but only to


defend themselves. That was a rough game
out there," she said.
Bohannon said her team continues to
improve despite losses to Jensen Beach
and now Centennial. She said the team
had several scoring opportunities and just
needs to work on their consistency.
"It was a very competitive game and we
could very easily have won this game. The
girls worked hard," she added.
Emily Raulerson scored Okeechobee's
goal in the first half after an excellent throw
in pass by LeAnna Cotton.
Okeechobee (3-2) will visit Fort Pierce
Central on Wednesday, Dec. 1 and will host
Dreyfoos School of the Arts on Friday, Dec.
3 at 5 p.m.
