By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Utility Author-
ity (OUA) Board of Directors has
discovered how to increase at-
tendance at their monthly board
meetings. The Tuesday morning,
April 13, meeting was packed after
OUA customers received a notice
on their last water bill that a public
hearing would be held at the meet-
ing concerning a proposed change
to utility rates. Customers came to
the meeting with complaints and
.questions concerning their water
bills.
"This is very unusual," chairman
Frank Irby said of the size of the
crowd. "I'm glad you are here."
Normally there are only a hand-
ful of people at the meeting.

Teacher enters 'no contest' plea to drug charges


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee teacher on suspension
without pay recently entered a no contest
plea to seven counts of fraudulent attempt
to obtain a duplicate prescription for a con-
trolled substance and was entered into the
Okeechobee pre-trial diversion program.
Catherine Ann Jones, 44, will have to
follow all the terms and conditions of the
program which include random drug testing
and counseling.
The Osceola Middle School teacher has
worked for the school system for 12 years.
Jones readily admits she broke the law
but she claims she did not know she was
breaking the law.
She said she has had some serious medi-
cal problems in the past year and always re-
ceived valid prescriptions for the drugs she
took.
"I broke the law, I sure did, but I did not
know I was breaking the law," she said.
Jones said she now wants to devote her-
self to helping others so they don't make the
same mistake. She also hopes that she is
assigned to another position by the school
board before they decide on her teaching
position.
Jones said she underwent two surgeries
last year for kidney stones, and a hysterecto-


my. She was also treated for herniated discs
in her back. She said her physicians had of-
fices in Okeechobee. She said she also filled
.her prescriptions at local pharmacies.
Jones said she missed very few days due
to her surgeries and medical problems. She
maintains that she thinks she was still an ef-
fective.teacher for 136 sixth grade English
students at Osceola during this ordeal.
"I feel like I was an effective teacher and
still do. I'm hoping that I can go back to the
classroom because I absolutely love teach-
ing," she added.
Jones was interviewed by detectives
in December and was later arrested at her
school on Feb. 5 on felony charges of doctor
shopping.
"If I can help one person by reliving the
nightmare of being arrested for doctor shop-
ping, I want to do it. Doctor shopping is when
you obtain more than one prescription for
pain medication from more than one doctor
in less than 30 days. I did not know I was
breaking the law until a local pharmacist
talked to me in late October," she added.
Jones said she would urge patients to
communicate well with their doctors and
ask questions about the prescriptions they
are given. She also urges residents to use
the same pharmacy for all of their prescrip-
tions.
Jones said she is very pleased with the

Mini grant awarded
South Florida Water Management recently awarded a mini-grant to Mr. Butler

concept of drug court because it gives many
people a second chance, "It is great for first
time offenders. I have no prior arrests or con-
victions. It does cost money and many peo-
ple don't realize that. For a person like me
that is faced with a felony charge it is worth
it although it can be quite expensive."
Jones has been busy putting in job ap-
plications so she can pay her bills until the
School Board makes a decision on her sta-
tus. She said she is hoping for the best and
wants to return to the classroom.
"It has been painful. I did not realize how
much I missed the routine of things. If there
is a silver lining to all of this. I know that
when I'm allowed to go back to my class-
room, I will never ever take another day for
granted," she said.


Jones said her church family and her close
friends have been very supportive of her. She
said she hopes she can help someone who
might be in the same circumstance.
According to Assistant Superintendent
of Schools Ken Kenworthy, Jones is still
on administrative leave. He said the school
board is waiting for documentation and a
recommendation from Professional Prac-
tices. Professional Practices is an arm of the
Department of Education that investigates
allegations against teachers. He explained
that any time a teacher is accused of a fel-
ony, Professional Practices must be notified.
He said the school board's decision will be
based on the recommendation from this
agency.

OPINION


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!

Senate Bill
I am concerned what Senate Bill 6
will do to the students. No one will want to
teach the kids with learning disabilities be-
cause they know those kids low test scores
are going to affect their pay. Some principals
will make sure that teachers who are their
friends will get a class full of good students.
They need to use other ways to evaluate
teachers.
The way Senate Bill 6 is set up, if a third
grade teacher has a student who comes into
class reading at first grade level and at the
end of the year has made progress, but is not
quite up to third grade level, that teacher is
still considered a failure. They aren't consid-
ering how much is learned during the year.
They are only considering the tests. Some
kids start out way behind the others. Teach-
ers have no control over that, especially with
kids who start in the middle of the school
year.
We can only hope the governor will
listen to the people and veto this bill. Thou-
sands of people have emailed or signed the
online petition.
On the TV news, it seems like only the
teachers are against Senate Bill 6. But from
what I have read, the Florida Association of
School Boards, the Parent Teacher Associa-
tion and the Superintendents Association all
oppose it. It's just a bad bill. Bad for the kids,
the teachers and the schools.

Golf
I don't usually follow golf that much,
but I was glad to see Phil Mickelson win the
Masters. From everything I have read, the
guy puts family first. He sets a good example
for young people and he is a great golfer.
Instead of the media following around the
womanizer Tiger Woods, they should give
guys like Mickelson more attention. He has
been there for his mother who has cancer
and for his wife who also has cancer. He is
there for his kids.


12-year-old accused of
molesting younger boys
The concern I am hearing from parents
is not about justice -- it's about the safety of
the children in this community. He is not out
on bail. He is released to his parents' cus-
tody. What if the parents are asleep or just
busy in another room and the kid decides to
sneak out? What guarantee do we have that
one of the parerits will be in the room with
the kid 24 hours a day?

What are your top
three pet peeves?
Software and Computer guys; People
who have no business, that don't mind their
business, being agitated by others not mind-
ing their own business; Grown men who
use smiley faces in their posts.

Humane Society
Find out where the money goes you
donate to the Humane Society of the United
States. If you think that your money goes to
the shelters you are wrong. This is why the
shelters are having a problem keeping their
doors open. These executives are "to me"
thieves, they are fattening their pensions
with money that is donated in
good faith.
You can donate directly to the
LOCAL Humane Society. You can
buy dog food or supplies and take
it there if you are worried about
exactly what the money will be
used for. I agree I would not give
to the national organization. Keep
donations direct and local. If you
donate to the national Humane
Society, the local shelter is not go-
ing to see a penny of it.
I don't make donations to most of the
national charities because they spend such
a large percentage of the donations on staff
salaries. I don't have a lot to donate so I try
to make it count by supporting local chari-
ties. I think the local Humane Society is do-
ing a great job with their animals. They are a
"no kill" shelter, so they need folks to adopt
the ones that are ready for new homes so
that they can take in more animals who need
help. I believe they are limited to 40 animals
at one time. So if you adopt one of their dogs
or cats, you open up a spot at the shelter that
can save the life of another dog or cat.

Unless I'm mistaken, the HSUS is noth-
ing more than another branch of PETA and
does basically nothing for our pet popula-
tion. It's the American Humane Society that
most are thinking of when they hear "Hu-
mane Society" but there is no national orga-
nization that covers all animal shelters.
It is nice to have the new animal shel-
ter in our town. I have been up there myself
several times. But, as far as I know, by law
only 10 percent of money donations have
to go towards the non-profit. organization
of any type they are collecting for. I really
don't agree with that myself. That is why I
only donate food and supplies. On the other
hand, I'm sure it cost quite a bit of money to
keep these organizations in business. They
have to get the money somewhere to pay all
the extra expenses. The adoption fees only
covers the vet bill for check ups, medication
and to be spayed or neutered. Anyone that
has a pet knows how much that costs. Look
at the bright side at least animals are being
fed and given a longer time to live. At least
they have a chance and they're not on death
row. This shelter does need help. If you are
uncomfortable in giving cash, they have a-
list of items that they are in great need that
you can donate.
It is true that shelters are not forced to
use 100 percent of the donations
on the animals and that directors,
etc. can make a salary. BUT, they
must be setup in their by-laws to
do that. Also true that no money
trickles down the pike to the lo-
cal shelter from other regional or
P national organizations. So, please
keep it in our town. Our Humane
Society Pet Rescue in Okeecho-
bee uses all adoption fees and
funds collected for the care, and
housing of the animals. rent, in-
surance, electric, phone, medical,
trash pickup, spay/neuter, fund raiser events,
office supplies and equipment, kennels, de-
tergents for laundry and dishes, lawn mow-
ing, etc, etc, etc. At the Okeechobee Hu-
mane Society, we do not have any payroll,
everyone is a volunteer. The local shelter
needs donations of money and items such
as Clorox bleach, laundry detergent, towels,
blankets, coffee and drinks for volunteers,
Eukanuba dog food and puppy chow, paper
towels, etc. Volunteers are needed to help
with housekeeping in the kennels and fund
raising. If you want to help you can also pur-
chase T-shirts, hats or visors from the shel-
ter.

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.


We have adopted two pets from the
local Humane Society and they are terrific
pets. They have some wonderful animals
there. If you are looking for a pet, look there
first. However, you may find yourself unable
to adopt just one. When you see them, you
may want to take them all home. As men-
tioned by others, the fee they charge covers
the spay/neuter and all shots so they are up
to date on their medical needs when you
take them home. If you took the animal to
the vet locally and paid for all that yourself it
would cost as much or more than the adop-
tion fee.

Christensen
My heart goes out to you for what you
are going through. My husband died Jan.
24 after 49 years of marriage and the pain
is unbearable. Although his death was not
as brutal as your wife's, nobody can un-
derstand how we feel, as it sounds like we
are going through the same feelings. I read
about your wife's death with tears in my eyes
for someone I never knew, she probably
waited on me in Golden Corral. I grew up
with my husband teaching me life's lessons
since we married extremely young, I was 14
he was 17, all those years together then for
him to die in the prime of his life is devastat-
ing. Please know that there are people out
there that care, I will pray that you and I will
somehow come to terms living without our
loved ones.

Big vehicles
I am getting sick and tired of the people
who drive these giant trucks acting like they
own the road. When you pull a big vehicle
up to a normal size or economy size car, we.
cannot see through or around your vehicle.
Have a little consideration for those around
you and the problems your vehicle causes for
others. I am talking about the pickup trucks
with the long cabs and the giant tires.

Acts of kindness
The other day after it rained, all of the
shopping carts were wet. I noticed a shopper
cleaning up a cart with paper towels. She had
just finished when an elderly woman came
in and looked at the carts. The shopper did
not hesitate to hand the elderly woman her
dry cart and start on another one for herself.
She inspired me to do the same. If everyone
made just one act of kindness like that each
day, imagine how wonderful this commu-
nity could be.

Letters to the editor


Ask governor to veto
Senate Bill 6
The Okeechobee County Educators As-
sociation wanted to provide you with a copy
of the Superintendent's communication to
Governor Crist encouraging him to veto Sen-
ate Bill 6. Governor Crist has until the close of
business on Friday, April 16, to veto this bill,
sign it into law or let it become law without
his signature. If you have not already done
so, please contact him immediately request-
ing that he veto this very bad legislation. En-
courage friends, family and neighbors to do
the same.

Candy Walker, OCEA
The superintendent's letter follows.
Honorable Governor Crist:
I am certain that you have received con-
cerns from many regarding Senate Bill 6
and House Bill 7189. As Superintendent of
a small, rural district with a state DOE grade
of "A" I too am gravely concerned about the
impact of these proposals.
First, this legislation once again usurps
authority vested in local School Boards.
Performance appraisals, salary schedules
and rewarding of contracts have histori-
cally and legally been within the purview of
these elected officials and their administra-
tive staff. In my humble opinion, with this
legislation, this authority is removed and/or
eroded significantly.
Secondly, the requirement to set aside


5% of the total revenue of a district for the
purpose of creating a performance fund is
removing the legally provided authority of
School Boards to establish a budget. Also,
within this 5%, districts will be expected to
implement a salary schedule, create a newly
designed performance appraisal system and
develop end-of-course assessments. For a
small, rural district such as ours, this will be
a fiscal impossibility.
Finally, although I could continue with
other issues, I want to share with you that
some of our best and brightest teachers
have stated to their principals that if this
legislation passes, they will be relocating to
other states. The reasons are many and var-
ied; however, a few include: removal of the
possibility of professional services contracts;
basing appraisal on 50% of student perfor-
mance and/or learning gains when there
will never be complete equity in student
variables between classrooms; renewal of
certification tied to effective/highly effective
performance appraisals.
I must say that there are certainly reasons
that we need to address student performance
and preparation for 21 st century careers for
our students; however, I would urge those
in state authority to invite the practitioners in
the educational field to come to the table to
develop meaningful change to be developed
within a realistic time line with full funding
provided.
Governor, for these and other reasons, I
respectfully request that you exercise your
veto power on this legislation.

Ranch Rodeo thanks
Many thanks to all the home town folks
responsible for Saturday's fabulous Ranch
Rodeo. Okeechobee was so well represented
to keep us in tune with the true meaning of
this town. The riding skills were beyond belief,
no fear in anyone as they road around doing
the hysterical "buddy pickup,' I've never gone
home from a rodeo with my sides hurting from
laughing so hard. I don't know who thinks of
these "games," like the ride the hide (photo
below), but, my compliments to whoever it
was. Okeechobee men know how to bring
out the best in their livestock, as they maneu-
ver another guy behind riding the hide like a
sled, pulled with a rope, behind a horse.
The Okeechobee Livestock "family" did a
marvelous job, with its organizational skills,
the names of the teams, safety measures, and
the food. No one can do it better.
Spectators had a grand time cheering their

team on to victory, while the dirt was flying
from all directions. Horses on their sides, cow-
boys upside down, cows with chalk on them,
dirt in your face. What a unique way to spend
a Saturday afternoon in the Florida sunshine.
Mr. Brian, hats off to you, you are the best
announcer ever. All the names were accurate,
the events went smoothly, all calls were fair
and square, even if the rules had to be read to
make sure it was all called fairly. It was fabu-
lous, not to mention the music was excellent
for this particular event. I personally wish we
did this more often.
Again, thank you, to all the attendees, the
spectators, participants, the Queens and Prin-
cess of the Rodeo. The fact it was held in the
old rodeo arena even made it more special.
.Thank you, thank you for continuing to use
this most valuable piece of Okeechobee his-
tory.
Happy Trails and many blessings to all,
Bobbi Poole

in Okeechobee!


By CHRISTINA BUTLER
STAFF WRITER


The first day of the 5 day
reclamation drive in Okeechobee was
a hit with those looking to sell their
gold and silver. Representatives were
on hand Tuesday purchasing all types
of unwanted and broken jewelry. An
estimated 55 people left the event with
over $200 dollars from old class rings,
wedding bands, herringbones, and gold
teeth. Coins dated before 1964 were
bringing big premiums as well. Silver
dollars, halves and quarters arrived in
large quantities. Lots of gold coins were
also brought in. Rebecca Hughes walked
away with over $1200.00 after selling an
original $20 gold piece from 1888.


On the other side of the room
were representatives from the Antique
Association. They were purchasing all
types of guitars, large currency bills dated
before 1923, military items and pocket
watches. One watch was purchased by
a collector in Montana for $835 dollars.
There were piles of sterling silver items
like old silverware sets and tea pots. One
gentleman rolled a cart in with 3 boxes
full of silver coins. Company officials
reported spending over $80,000 the first
day of the event, alone. Brian Eades
with Ohio Valley said "we have had an
overwhelming turnout this first day and
we expect to get busier every day this
week". The event continues todayand
runs through Saturday. The event is free
and the public is welcome.

Guest speaker joins tobacco-free campaign
Victor J. DeNoble, Ph.D. was recruited to develop a safer cigarette for Philip Morris
in the 1980s. In his secret research laboratory, he studied nicotine's effects on the cen-
tral nervous system and was successful in developing a nicotine substitute that did not
elevate the heart rate; however, attempts to publish his work were suppressed by Philip
Morris. Dr. DeNoble was eventually fired and his laboratory was seized. After a decade
of being silenced by a secrecy agreement, he became the first whistle blower to testify
before Congress and was a key witness in the federal government's investigation into the
tobacco industry's research practices. Dr. DeNoble will speak on Tuesday, April 20, at 6
p.ni., at the Freshman CampusAuditorium, 610 S.W. Second Avenue.

OUA
Continued From Page 1
While board members tried to answer
their questions, the specific purpose of the
public hearing was to consider changing the
rate schedule to include a Fire Hydrant Fee.
The good news is that there will be no in-
crease in monthly bills for the Fire Hydrant
Fee.
Since October, 2001 the OUA has been
transferring funds into the restricted Fire
Hydrant Fund at the rate of fifty cents per
meter per month with the funds being used
to purchase and install new fire hydrants.
However, a Fire Hydrant Fee was never part
of the rate schedule.


MUSTANGS
Continued From Page 1

be from the same original herd were found
dumped in Hendry County in July. Some of
those horses had freeze brands which were
traced back to a ranch in Myacca City. The
man who adopted the horses had died,
and family members told officials they gave
away approximately 80 horses-most of
these were adopted mustangs and their de-
scendants.
Two domestic horses that had been run-
ning with the herd on the Kissimmee River
were captured in November. When no one
claimed ownership, they were sold at public
auction by the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office.
Officials believe several of the mustangs
are still running loose in Hendry County and
at least two are still loose on SFWMD prop-
erty near the Kissimmee River.
The legal notice about the 15 mustangs
was published April 11 in the Okeechobee
News.
According to the legal notice, the horses
available for adoption will include:
1. Bay mustang colt, left hind white fet-
lock, right front white pastern, approximate-
ly 2 years old, 13 hands high (hh);
2. Bay mustang colt, white star, approxi-
mately one year old, 134 hh;
3. Bay mustang mare, freeze brand on
neck and number 6820 on quarters, approx-
imately 10 years old, 14 hh;
4. Blue roan mustang mare, approxi-


The board was presented with four op-
tions. The first option was to charge each
meter a fee of 50 cents per month. Option
two was to set the fee according to the size
of the meter. The third option had the fee
based on meter size and number of units be-
hind the meter. The fourth option -- the one
finally adopted by the board after one and
half hours of discussion -- called for the base
charge to be lowered 50 cents and a 50 cent
Fire Hydrant Fee assessed. Therefore, the net
effect is that bill would stay the same.
The fee is to be used to install fire hydrants
at 1,000 foot intervals on existing OUA lines.
When new lines are installed the developer
who put in the line is responsible for install-
ing fire hydrants.
The purpose of the Fire Hydrant Fund is
to play catch up and install fire hydrants on


mately 8 years old, 14 hh;
5. Dark bay mustang mare, approximate-
ly 8 years old, 14 hh;
6. Brown mustang filly, approximately 2
years old, 14.2 hh;
S.7. Bay mustang filly, left hind white pas-
tern, right white fetlock, white star, approxi-
mately 2 years old, 14hh;
8. Bay mustang filly, tiny white star and
thin white stripe on nose, approximately 2
years old, 14 hh;
9. Gray mustang colt, left hind white pas-
tern, right hind white fetlock, 14hh;
10. Bay mustang mare, right half white
pastern, left hind white pastern, white star,
approximately 2 years old, 14 hh.
11. Bay roan mustang mare, white pas-
tern to fetlock, white star, approximately 3
years old, 14 hh;
12. Bay mustang filly, left front club foot,
approximately 8 months old, 12 hh;
13. Bay mustang filly, approximately 1
year old; 13 hh;
14. Bay mustang mare, right hind white
half pastern, left hind white fetlock, tiny
white star, approximately 5 years old, 14
hh;
15. Bay mustang colt, right hind white
pastern, approximately 2 years old, 14hh.
The horses are currently held at a pri-
vate facility pending the results of the Cog-
gins tests and are currently not available for
public view. However, prospective bidders
who wish to see the horses before the sale
may contact Claire Hudson at Okeechobee
Animal Control, 863-357-3225, to set up an
appointment.


. all the old OUA lines. John Hayford, OUA
executive director, said that a six inch line
is the minimum size line for a fire hydrant.
In some cases this fund was used to replace
a four inch line with a six inch line so fire
hydrants could be installed.
However, upon questioning Mr. Hayford
could not give any figures as to how many
fire hydrants have been installed since 2001
or how many more fire hydrants would have
to be installed before the project was com-
plete.
"Where are we in this project?" asked El-
len Tolliver, a winter resident of Palm Village
Ranch. "Are you on target?"
While not able to answer those ques-
Stions, Mr. Hayford did say that one OUA crew
is dedicated to fire hydrant rehabilitation on
a routine basis. He could not answer spe-
cific questions about the fire hydrant in her
neighborhood, however, he said that a log
book is kept of fire hydrant maintenance.
Mr. Hayford said the goal was to use the
money from the funds on fire hydrants and
limit spending to the amount of money com-
ing into the fund. He noted that every year
during the annual audit, they were ques-
tioned about the Fire Hydrant Fund. He said
that even though the money was collected
there was not a line item in the rate schedule
for a Fire Hydrant Fee.
Several winter residents questioned OUA's
practice of charging a base charge during
the time they are not here. They said that the
utility serving their summer residence did


not charge a base charge. Mr. Irby explained
that the base charges paid the debt service
and the cost of operating the surface water
and wastewater treatment plants while the
rate per gallon paid for consumption. Board
member Carl Leonard said that in some
cases the other utility system may be run
by a city or county and thus supplemented
by tax funds. OUA does not receive any tax
money.
Winter residents complained that rate
hearings were held in the summer when
they were not here. Board member Tommy
Hoover suggested that in each subdivision-or
park one or more full time residents be ap-
pointed to attend OUA meetings and inform
their neighbors on what the utility is doing.
Working people complained of the board
meetings being held in the day time.
Mr. Irby suggested that a plan be devel-
oped for spending the Fire Hydrant Fee and
the utility make more use of its website to
make information available to its custom-
ers.
"We have received your comments," said
board member Devin Maxwell. "They were
well taken. Your time wasn't wasted. We
heard you."
"We are doing the best we can for our
customers," said Carl Leonard. "We are
open for any suggestions you may have."

OHS boys baseball team plays Vero Beach, Island Coast


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
It was a tough weekend for the Okeecho-
bee High School Brahman baseball team as
they fell to Vero Beach 6-1 on the road Fri-
day, and lost a four run lead during a loss to
Island Coast, 5-4 on Saturday.
A name Okeechobee fans will know,
Enrico, did the Brahmans in at Vero Beach.
Eric Enrico scattered three hits and struck
out six as the Indians defeated Okeechobee.
Austin Hamilton started and took the loss for
Okeechobee.
Brahman Coach Dylan Tedders said he
was pleased with the way Hamilton pitched.
He had one bad inning where he allowed
four runs due to a couple of walks and get-
ting behind in the count.
"We didn't get much started on offense.
He threw a lot of strikes and we couldn't put
hits together."
Tedders said his team must do the little


things like sacrifice, draw walks, steal bases,
and play good defense to win games. "It is
going to be this way if we don't do the small
things. We'll keep pushing the guys all we
can."
Saturday Okeechobee built a 4-0 lead only
to lose the lead in the late innings against the
Island Coast Gators, a second year school
from near Fort Myers. Okeechobee had one
good inning as they scored four runs in the
bottom of the third.
Justin Morgan had a two hit day for the
Brahmans. He singled to begin the rally in
the third. Drew Selvey reached on a one out
walk and Aaron Suarez reached on an error.
Mark Weir followed with a three run triple to
the gap in right center. He scored on a wild
pitch by starter Taylor Renager.
Renager delivered a run in the top of the
fourth with a one out single as the Gators
fought back into the game. They scored
twice in the sixth inning thanks to a bank, a
single and a double by Chase Vogelbah.


Brice Buckner pitched six solid innings
for Okeechobee. He allowed eight hits and
struck out five.
The Gators scored twice against Brahman
relievers in the seventh to win the game.
Brandon Farless relieved and immediately
hit Kyle Harding. After a strikeout he allowed
the tying run on a double to left by Jordan
Moody. Jonathan Crawford relieved and al-
lowed Moody to score after a scratch hit by
Chase Vogelbah and a fielder's choice.
Okeechobee went quietly in the bottom
of the inning after a leadoffwalk to pinch hit-
ter Jake Davenport. Okeechobee was held to
four hits, two apiece by Morgan and Weir.
Tedders said his team has got to be ready
to battle for seven innings every time they
play. He noted Island Coast was a scrappy
team that works hard.
"We have to battle and not take any game
for granted. There are going to be games
like this. It just reaffirms that if we don't play
baseball the way we can anybody can slip in


our door and knock us down," he said.
Okeechobee played two important dis-
trict games this week as they travelled to
Lincoln Park on Monday and hosted Jensen
Beach on Tuesday.


JV plays Flag Football in Wellington


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
A couple of penalties right off the bat put
Okeechobee behind the 8-ball as the JV Flag
football team lost 20-7 to Wellington last
Thursday night at Brahman stadium.
Theresa Rainiere scored two touchdowns,
one on a nice run, and the second on a nice
hook and ladder play for Wellington (3-1).
Courtney Burriett scored their third touch-
down on a 30 yard run.
The hook and ladder play late in the first
quarter covered 45 yards and ruined some
fine defensive efforts by the Lady Brahmans.
The Brahman defenders had held on Wel-
lington's first possession and had pinned
the Wolverines back at their five yard line on
their second possession.
Courtney Dobkins hauled in a 25 yard
pass and quickly pitched it to Rainiefe when
the defense converged to give the Wolverines
a 6-0 lead on the final play of the first quarter.
Rachel Kaiser followed with the extra point
to make it 7-0.
Wellington went up 14-0 late in the first
half. After Okeechobee missed a chance for
an interception, Rainiere scored on a last sec-
ond touchdown catch to give the Wolverines
a big momentum builder at halftime.

Okeechobee responded in the third quar-
ter with a long pass to Alex Delacruz who
outran the Wolverine secondary for a 40-yard
touchdown. QB Deanna Davis made an ex-
cellent throw on the play.
Burnett scored for Wellington with 2:30
left in the fourth quarter to finish off the scor-
ing.
Okeechobee played inspired defense in
the second half but were unable to get much
going on offense after the touchdown pass.

Bus fire under




investigation


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News

The State Fire Marshall investigated a sus-
picious fire that caused considerable dam-
age to an International School Bus at 1700
State Road 70 west on Sunday morning.
Okeechobee County Fire Rescue sent a
unit to the scene at about 3 a.m. and found
the passenger area of the bus fully involved.
Lt. Robert Mears said the Sheriffs Office
secured the area and that firemen were on
the scene for just under two hours. About
500 gallons of water was used to put out the
flames. The estimate of damage was placed
at $10,000.
The fire report said the bus was owned
by Ruben Munoz of Okeechobee. There
were no injuries reported.
Mears said the fire was considered suspi-
cious.

Football team starts

Spring practice
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Spring football practice for the Okeechobee
Brahmans is just around the corner and this
year the team hopes to become more a part of
the community.
Coach Myron Jackson didn't have the ben-
efit of coaching the team at spring practice last
year and he is looking forward to having nearly
a full month with his team this year.
Off season conditioning has gone well with
15-20 kids showing up on a regular basis. Last
week a group of close to 30 kids was in the
weight room and outside running through vari-
ous exercises to improve strength, speed, and
endurance.
Jackson said his team is anxious to get
started and want to show what they can do.
Only five players graduated off last year's team.
A number of players have played other sports
like basketball, baseball and track to stay in
shape.
The annual spring game will be held on
May 21 at the Brighton Seminole Indian Res-
ervation. Games are scheduled to start around
6:30 p.m. The eighth grade scrimmage is likely
to occur before the varsity and junior varsity
contest. The team will not have a spring game
this year with another high school.
The first spring practice is scheduled for
May 3 at 3:30 p.m. The varsity team will prac-
tice for about three hours per day for most of
May. The eighth graders will practice from 4:30
to 6:30 pm. All players must have a physical in
order to compete.
Jackson also plans to hold several fund rais-
ers for the team this year so he can purchase
additional equipment. A sporting clay shoot is
planned for Quail Creek Plantation on June 5,
Corporate sponsorships are being sought. The
team will also hold a fund raiser walk-a-thon
on May 15. The players walk from the high
school campus to Lake Okeechobee. Players
can receive sponsorships for each mile they
walk from businesses and individuals. The
team will also be selling Brahman flags for $55
apiece. At the purple white scrimmage barbe-
cue dinners will also be sold for $7 per plate to
raise money for the team.
The team hopes to purchase a five man
sled that costs $5,000. They also want to pur-
chase blocking dummies, pop up dummies,
other exercise equipment and new uniforms
if possible.
Anyone who would like to support the
Brahmans can call Coach Jackson at 863-462-
5050.

Area runners shine in LOST 7 miler

f | ...I' -ilS


Okeechobee News/Charles Murphy
Will Glover crossed the finish line in
just under 47 minutes to win the 2010
Lost 7 mile race on Lake Okeechobee.
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Will Glover of Stuart has survived cancer
and now can claim title to surviving the Lake
Okeechobee 7-mile race.
Glover won the race with a blistering pace
of 46 minutes and 48 seconds. Lori Stieger of
Stuart won the women's division for the sec-
ond time in three years.
Glover said he hasn't run in awhile and
was just out to get in better shape and hold
his own. "It went surprisingly better than I
thought. I held steady at the beginning and
held on. There were five or six guys in the
running and the last mile was a fight to the
finish. It was a lot of fun."
Glover who got involved in iron man com-
petitions and marathons when he joined the
Leukemia Society, has run on the levy before
and knew the winds can be tricky. He tucked
in behind some runners on the way out to
conserve energy and had something left for
a final kick.
Stieger recently had twin daughters,
Emma and Kate, who were on hand to watch
their mom race for the first time. She said that
made the day very special. "I love to run. This
was their first race so I did as fast as I could.
Maybe they will run some day."
Stieger said she was never challenged in
the female division and did her best to keep
up with some of the men. 'it's a pretty easy
course because you can't get lost. The wind
was at our back today so that helped on the
way back."
Okeechobee was well represented at the
race as several Okeechobee runners won
awards at the event Saturday at the Lake
Okeechobee Scenic Trail in Port Mayaca.
Shaun Goldie of Okeechobee finished first
in the 30-34 age division with a time of 54:58.
The native of South Africa lives on Connors
Highway and runs the dike two to three times
per week. He said he trained long and hard
for this race, "I'm pleased to win this award.
It was a long hard race. I did much better
than last year. It was hot and misty last year,
we had a nice breeze today."
Okeechobee's Craig Batchelor finished in
28th position overall and was second in the
30-34 age division.
Carlos Morales won the 45-49 age bracket
with a time of 49:21. He finished sixth over-
all. Tim Murr finished in 37th place overall
and was third in the 55-59 age division. He

finished with a time of 1 hour, 1 minute and
45 seconds. Morales improved his time from
last year by three minutes. He has committed
himself to running as he competed in mara-
thons this year in Fort Lauderdale and Port St.
Lucie. He has lived in Okeechobee for three
years and brought along some friends for the
race.
"I feel great about running. I worked for
this all the time and practiced a lot. I started
by running 5 K races in 47 minutes. Now I can
run the 5 K in 19 or 20 minutes," he said.
For the women, Shelly Batton of Okeecho-
bee finished 11th overall and claimed the
Masters Division championship for runners
over 40 years old. She finished with a fast
time of 51 minutes and 25 seconds. Diane
Bennett of Indiantown finished 58th overall
and fifth in the 40-44 age division with a time
of 1 hour, 16 minutes and 29 seconds.
Kathy Wentworth of Okeechobee finished
24th overall and second in the 45-49 age divi-
sion. Her time was 56 minutes and 51 sec-
onds.
Nancy Murr of Okeechobee finished sev-
enth in the 50-54 age division with a time of
1 hour 15 minutes and 51 seconds. Suzanne
Campbell of Indiantown finished 65th over-
all, and was eighth in the 50-54 age division.
Her time was 1 hour, 23 minutes and 41 sec-
onds.
Batton said she was very proud of the way
she ran as she set a personal record Saturday.
She said she is interested in getting a hold of
all the runners in Okeechobee and creating
a club. She said they have also talked about
having a 5 K race in Okeechobee.
Batton took up running seriously a few
years ago. She ran a half marathon in Palm
Beach last year and ran the full marathon in 3
hours and 50 minutes this year.
Anyone interested in joining the Okeecho-
bee running club can call Shelly at 863-634-
5294.
