Okeechobee Forecast Veterans widows eligible for bene tsWidows of veterans are possibly eligible for VA bene ts. Two of the bene ts they may be entitled to are Death Pension or Dependency Indemnity Compensation (DIC). The Death Pension, more commonly known as a widow’s pension is an income-based program through the Department of Veterans Affairs. To be eligible for a widow’s pension, the veteran must have served at least 90 days active service with at least one day during a war-time period and received a discharge under other than dishonorable conditions. Also, eligible widows in a nursing home or assisted living facility may also apply and a family member can assist in the application. The other bene t, DIC, is not income based, but is a monetary compensation provided to the widow for the death of a veteran from a service connected disability, or in some instances whose death resulted from a non-service connected injury or disease and was rated 100 percent service connected from the VA. Widows or family members who think they may be eligible for a widow’s pension or DIC (even if not sure if death is service related) should contact the County Veterans’ Service Of cer, Betsy Grinslade, at 863-763-6441, ext 5. By Pete GawdaOkeechobee News According to 2012 taxable values, utilities own the most valuable property in the county. Of the top 10 taxpayers in the county based on the taxable value of their properties, six are utilities. According to gures supplied by Okeechobee County Property Appraiser Bill Sherman, the total value of all taxable property in the county is $1,450,917,618. Of that amount, a total of 18.41 percent is owned by six utilities. At the top of the list is Florida Gas Transmission whose property in the county is valued at $94,975,000 or 6.55 percent of the total. Coming in second is Florida Power and Light (FP&L), whose in county assets are valued at $61,041,501 or 4.21 percent of the total. Gulfstream Natural Gas system comes in third at $56,975,000 or 3.93 percent of the total. Embarq Corporation is fourth at $29,975,000 which computes to 2.07 percent of the total taxable valuation of the county. In fth place is Waste Management at $13,983,274 or 0.96 percent. Interrupting the list of utilities, the hospital comes in a close sixth place with a taxable value of $13,955,280, which also computes to 0.96 percent of the total. Number seven is Glades Electric, whose assets in the county are valued by the property appraiser at $9,975,000 or 0.69 percent of the total. However, some of those utilities have unsuccessfully disputed their assessed values in the past. Mr. Sherman has gone to court with FL&L over several year’s appraisals. He has also been involved in legal actions with Florida Gas Transmission, Gulfstream and Embarq. Rounding out the top ten property owners value wise are Wal-Mart at $9,674,246, KOA, valued at $9,178,423, followed closely by and McArthur Farms with an assessed value of $9,177,038.Post your opinions in the Public Issues Forum at www.newszap.com.

A mendments I am commenting on the person in Friday’s speak out stating to “just vote NO” on t he amendments. This is what is wrong in t his country. You have to understand what t hey are saying. If you just vote NO, you c ould be hurting yourself! The Okeechob ee News had an excellent explanation in t he paper last week on all the amendments and explained what they meant. They explained what would happen if you vote yes, and what would happen if you voted no. People need to understand what you are voting for or against. You just can’t vote NO. If y ou don’t want to take the time to read and understand what you are voting for, then LEAVE IT BLANK and let the people who know what is going on, make the decisions. Y ou could be only hurting yourself if you just v ote no. Read. Understand.  The problems with the long lines to v ote were primarily due to the amendments on the ballot. Why did the Florida Legislat ure put all these things on the ballot? Were t hey trying to keep people from voting? T hey could have dealt with all of these iss ues as statutes rather than as amendments. T hese were not things that a public group petitioned for to get on the ballot. The Florida Legislature added most if not all of the amendments to the ballot. And on TV we s aw the long lines to vote and how people w ere getting fed up and giving up. Did the Legislature make it dif cult to vote on purpose? Union controversy In the news is a story about a utility c rew from Alabama that responded to the recovery efforts in New Jersey, but were t urned away because they were non-union. Now the of cials in New Jersey are saying it w as a mistake. But what a shame for a utility c rew to be there ready to help and be sent home.  So much for cutting through the red t ape.  I remember after the storms in 2004, we all waved and cheered when we saw any kind of utility truck in the area. When you have been without power, all you want is someone who can help turn the lights back on. You don’t care who they are or where they came from. What a shame that people who are suffering had to wait longer for help because this crew was turned away, even it if was a misunderstanding as the New Jersey of cials now say. Green energy Romney’s assessment of the billions that Obama has wasted on green energies is dead on. And unfortunately, it only tells half of the story. According to a Washington Examiner analysis of publicly available data, corporate insiders at the 15 publicly-traded green energy companies that received federal stimulus subsidies pocketed tens of millions by selling their stock after the government’s money poured in and before their companies’ values plummeted. The Obama administration gave more than $700 million in grants and guaranteed an additional $500 million in loans to publicly traded green energy companies through its 2009 stimulus package. One would hope that Obama would have learned some lessons from the epic failures of his green energy investments. But Americans are not that lucky. Campaigning early this year in Florida, Obama promised to “double-down on a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising.”The most important issues I am just wondering what was the most important issue to you in this election. For me, it was the federal de cit and the national debt. I want to leave my children and grandchildren a better future. Isn’t that what every parent wants for their children—a better life than they had? I don’t want to leave them a mountain of debt. That issue weighed heaviest on my mind throughout the campaign.  When all of this campaign nonsense is over, the amount of money they have spent could have gone a long way for something productive. The main thing is getting Congress back to work.  The main issue for me is Medicare. As for my children, I have a secured death bene t, thus they will have no worries about money if they spend it wisely. More than what I had as a child, then as an adult had to pay for my parents and some of my siblings. My children will not need to pay anything for me to live or die. Schools fundraiserOur local Jersey Mike’s Subs is under new ownership! The new owners have given us an awesome opportunity to show our support and raise money for two of our local schools. Jersey Mike’s is distributing promotional cards that individuals can use or give away to family and friends. These cards allow the card holder to receive a regular sub for a $2 minimum donation. The cards are valid until Nov. 13. All of the donations will be split between Okeechobee Christian Academy and Okeechobee High School. Jersey Mike’s is not making a pro t on the donation. But, if chips, drinks, or any subs are purchased without a card; Jersey Mike’s makes normal pro t from that. Please tell all of your family and friends to go into Jersey Mike’s before Nov. 13, use their cards and enjoy a regular size sub for a $2 minimum donation to help support our schools. The more people who come in to use their cards, the more money we will be able to collect for our schools. If you received cards that you will not use, please give them away to someone who will. There are a couple of rules: the cards are only valid at our local Jersey Mike’s Subs located at 611 West South Park Street, only one card per person, per visit, the card cannot be used with any other offers and the card must be redeemed in person. This means that anyone who wants to receive a regular sub for a $2 minimum donation must be present to use the card. If a family or group want to take advantage of this offer and each person has a card, all of the cards can be used at the same time. This is a great opportunity for everyone to stop in and see the newly-remodeled store, meet the new owners and enjoy a sub for an incredibly low price! If you have a chance to go into Jersey Mike’s, please take the time to wish them luck with their new venture and let them know how much we appreciate their generosity! Thank you in advance for your support! Sincerely, Sarah Reno Okeechobee Christian AcademyBlood donation takes a healthy bodyPlanning on donating blood at the upcoming 2012 Blood Roundup? We’ll be happy to see you on Nov. 17 and 18. Did you know that about 20 percent of women and 50 percent of pregnant women and 3 percent of men do not have enough iron in their body? Without suf cient iron, your body can’t produce enough hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen to the body’s tissue. As a result, whil e you may just feel weak or tired, your blood cannot help the person needing the transfusion. Though a level as low as 12.1 may b e suf cient for your daily routine, you mus t have a hemoglobin level (measurement o f iron in blood) of 12.5 to donate blood. Iron levels in the blood can uctuate daily. Just because you didn’t have enough to donate once, does not mean that you cannot donate ever. How can I be sure that my iron is high enough to donate? The answer is planning. Different things work for different people. Here are som e way to help to be sure that you pass th e “iron check.” The week before donating, take an iron supplement (oral ferrous sulfate tablets) daily and stop calcium supplements for jus t that week. One week off calcium isn’t going to hurt your bones. Tea, hot, cold, green depletes iron in your blood. Stop tea three days before donating. A few days before donating, concentrat e on iron-rich foods such as red meat, oysters or clams, spinach or other green vegetables, raisins, dried fruit such as prunes and dried apricots or peaches and the “big winner,” original Total Cereal. Many of our iron-problem donors have a bowl of Total both th e night before and the morning of donation. Always eat a good meal within hours before you donate. This does not mean a huge meal, it means a good meal with iron content. Whether early, mid-day or late afternoon donation, be sure you eat (preferably) within two hours of donating and b e sure the meal contains iron rich foods. Eating before donation also helps keep you from feeling light-headed after donating. Drinking 8 to 12 ounces of water prio r to donating helps expand your blood vessels, which helps in two ways: it allow th e needle to go in easier and the blood to o w more freely. Drinking plenty of uids afte r donation helps to replace that which was removed. There are few feelings greater than knowing by the simple act of one donation of blood, you may have saved up to as man y as three lives. Checking with your physician is always recommended. We’ll see you at the Roundup!

In the play, the title characters, The Marv elous Wonderettes, four high school senors, are drafted into service at the last minute to sing at the 1958 prom at Spring eld High School, home of the "The Fighting Chipmunks." The Crooning Crab Cakes, a group of boys from the glee club, were originally supposed to sing, but they were suspended for smoking. Then, in 1968, the same girls are asked to come back to perform at their 10-year class reunion. The Marvelous Wonderettes are, Missy Miller, played by Kate En nger in her rst performance on an OCT stage; Cindy Lou Huf ngton, played by Jane Kaugman, who performed in State Fair and Hello Dolly, among other OCT productions; Suzy Simpson, played by Genna Lute, who has performed in 13 OCT productions over the past 21 years; and, Betty Jean Reynolds, played by Melissa Neeley, who has performed with other high school, college and community groups elsewhere. For the prom, the four girls performed such 1950s hits as "Mr. Sandman," "Lollipop," "Allegheny Moon," and "Secret Love." The audience got to participate by voting for the prom queen. In the ten years following their graduation only Suzy and Missy kept in touch. However, school of cials were able to locate all four of the girls to perform once again for their ten-year reunion. In the second act, through such songs of the 60s as "Wedding Bell Blues," "You Don't own Her," "It's My Party," and "Son of A Preacher Man," the girls brought the audience up to date on what had been happening in their lives over the previous ten years. Cindy Lou had married the lead singer from the Crab Cakes. Suzy married her high school sweetheart, Ritchie, who was the lighting person at their prom. During the second act, Missy was proposed to on stage by her high school crush. The four girls performed well together and in solo parts. Their talents were showcased by about 30 well-known songs from the 50s and 60s that were sung in the play. The play is under the direction of Jacques Hayes who has been with OCT since 1985. A host of people working behind the scenes, many of them performing more than one task, contribute to the success of the play. Costumers Cathy Womble and Shirley Bush as well as hair stylist Linda Bohannon and make-up person Louise Chandler do a good job of capturing the look of 1958 and 1968. The set construction crew of Ron and Jacques Hayes and Joanie Moffat and the props created by the Hayes and Cathy Womble, transport the audience back to a typical high school gymnasium of the 1950s. Also working being the scenes are stage manager Andrew Hall, choreography coach Kisha Law, lighting control person Laura Murray, spotlight operator Kevin Lute, house manager Marie Koepke, and lighting gaffer Shane Cobb. Ron Hayes is also in charge of sound control and Joanie Moffat is also assistant stage manager. The Marvelous Wonderettes will again be performed on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10, at 8 each evening, at the Okeechobee Freshman Campus Auditorium. Tickets are available at the auditorium box of ce.Post your opinions in the Public Issues Forum at www.newszap.com. Reporter Pete Gawda can be reached at pgawda@newszap.com.

Anthony, 94OKEECHOBEE — Paul E. Anthony, Okeechobee, Fla., and Claridon, Ohio, died Thursday evening, Nov. 1, 2012, on the rst day of their wintering in Florida following a brief illness. On December 5, 1917, Paul was born at home in Meeker, Ohio, one of four children of the late Audrey and Merle (Coles) Anthony. In 1933, his family moved to a farm in Claridon, where he would graduate from Claridon High School in the Class of 1936. Later, he earned a degree from the Marion Business College. A few years after graduating, while he was working at JCPenny’s, Paul was introduced to a young lady, Helen Peterson, by a mutual friend, and the rest was history. Soon thereafter, Paul and Helen were married on May 29, 1942, and have cherished their 70 wonderful years of marriage together. Dedicating his life to the family farm, Paul farmed both livestock and grain until the day he died. He was proud to carry on their family tradition of farming, and was blessed to have his son and granddaughter follow in his footsteps. A man of faith, Paul was a 60 plus year member of the Marion Salem United Methodist Church. He also was a former member of the Masonic Lodge of Mount Gilead. Always giving back to his community, Paul served as a Claridon Township Trustee for 16 years. Snowbirds, Paul and Helen have been enjoying their winters in Okeechobee, Florida, since 1964, where they attended the First United Methodist Church. To say Paul was an avid card player would be quite the understatement, as he and Helen played cards nearly everyday with their friends and family, such as their neighbors, Donna Ruth and Wilbur Ault. With a love for the outdoors, Paul would go hunting as often as he could with anyone he could get to go with him, hunting for most anything, but most often going coon hunting. He also enjoyed shing and mushroom hunting. Having a heart of gold, Paul would go to all lengths to help his family and friends however he could. He was a man of integrity that you were proud to have known. He will be dearly missed by his beloved wife, Helen Anthony of Claridon; two children, Sondra (Tom) Nicodemus of Plain eld, Indiana, and Eric (Pat) Anthony of Edison; four grandchildren: Paul (Kay) Nicodemus, Sheri Nicodemus, Christopher (Janet) Anthony, and April Anthony Appleman; six great-grandchildren: Lyston, Kolby, Brittany, Brandon, Mary Elizabeth, and Samantha; and one great-great-grandson, Hunter; a brother-in-law, Howard McClenathan of Caledonia; and several nieces and nephews. Including his parents, Paul was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Mary Jo Anthony Van Meter; and three siblings: Maurice (Mary Ellen) Anthony, Louise (Corky) Brookens, and Pauline McClenathan. Paul’s family will greet friends from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services honoring his life will be held on Thursday at 11 a.m.; friends may gather at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of service at the Marion Salem United Methodist Church, 1640 Salem Rd., Caledonia, with Rev. James Van Meter and Pastor Jared Williams of ciating. Burial will follow in Claridon Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made in care of the First United Methodist Church.

Kimberly Christine Peterman, 26, Okeechobee, was arrested Saturday, Nov. 3, on felony charges of grand theft auto, uttering a forged instrument ( ve counts), scheme to defraud and exploitation of the elderly. She is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on a bond of $27,500. Peterman, who was released from a state prison in 2010, was arrested after she reportedly took ve checks from an elderly man then lled them out, signed the man’s name and cashed them. Those ve checks allegedly totaled $854.50, stated an arrest report by Sergeant Justin Bernst of the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD). Sgt. Bernst stated in his report that he was called to a local bank Saturday afternoon in regard to a woman, Peterman, wanting to cash a check that bank employees believed to be forged. While speaking with Peterman, Sgt. Bernst stated that the woman asked if she could get a cigarette from the car she was driving—a gray 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier. In his report, Sgt. Bernst stated that he watched the woman retrieve the keys to the car from her pocket, unlock the car and get a pack of cigarettes and a lighter from the vehicle. According to the sergeant’s report he had OCPD Of cer Kelley Margerum run a check on the license tag number on the Cavalier. Information from that check indicated that the vehicle was listed as stolen out of Belle Glade. Sgt. Bernst stated that he later contacted the woman who owned the car and was told that her son had met Peterman at a party several weeks ago. The son apparently gave Peterman permission to take the car to a nearby store, then return it. The OCPD sergeant pointed out in his report that Peterman has had 27 felony charges led against her and has 15 felony convictions. Those convictions include forgery, uttering a forged instrument and exploitation of the elderly. A check of Peterman’s history indicated that in 2009 she was convicted on ve counts of forgery, ve counts of uttering a forged instrument, one count of grand theft, one count of possession of cocaine and one count of organized fraud. Peterman was sentenced to three years in prison. She entered prison Sept. 4, 2009, and was released from the Gadsden Correctional Facility in Quincy on Dec. 16, 2010.

It is as simple as going out to get a chest x-ray! Cyberknife Robotic Radio surgery system, created at Stanford University over 10 years ago is unique and better than other systems in the fact that it is the only Radio surgery system that can achieve what is called real-time tracking and killing of tumor.Ž What kind of patients can be helped by Cyberknife? There are several situations too numerous to mention here where Cyberknife would be extremely useful and safe. The following are just a few of them: Patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia, pituitary tumors and tumors of the acoustic nerve called Acoustic Neuroma can avoid major surgical procedures on the brain by getting treated with Cyberknife. Patients with cancers of the brain, spine, lung and prostate are but a few of the cancers that can be helped with one to “ve sessions of Radio Surgery. An article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2010 showed that patients with patients with lung cancer who received Radiosurgery had a survival rate of 55.8% at 3 years versus 20 to 35% for those patients treated with traditional radiation over several weeks. As one of our patients commented, if it is good for patients at Stanford University, it is good for patients from the Okeechobee area!

The list includes, among other things, partnership with Florida Research Coast, attending the 2013 Site Selection Conference to promote the county, attending a business recruitment trip in January of 2013, and updating the chamber website. The total cost of these performance measures is $24,500. The board will discuss these performance measures and decide how much, if any of the economic development funds, will be given to the chamber. If any funds are granted the board will probably have to come up with a system for documentation of expenditures. Turning to other matter, commissioners will receive a presentation from David Dangel of the Florida Department of Transportation concerning options for improvements to S.R. 710 including extending the highway to intersect with U.S. 441 North of the downtown area. The board will then be asked for a letter stating their preferences concerning the highway. The county has received a Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity to be used for the purchase, rehabilitation and disposition of properties that are in foreclosure. Commissioners will be asked to con rm the county administrator's authority to sign contracts for the purchase of three properties under this grant. In other action the board is expected to: issue several proclamations for various causes; recognized employees for longevity; consider a request by the Boy Scouts to use the Commission Chambers; amend the budget to provide for an unanticipated grant; modify the 2008 Disaster Recovery Community Development Block Grant to extend it for one year COUNTYContinued From Page 1 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A Cocoa Beach woman is being held on bond in the Okeechobee County Jail after she was arrested on a felony drug charge during a routine traf c stop. Ashton Victoria Senior, 26, Grant Ave., was arrested Monday, Nov. 5, on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance (alprazolam) without a prescription and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. She is being held on $5,500 bond. An arrest report by Deputy Paul Jackson, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), stated that he asked Senior to get out of the car in which she was a passenger while a fellow deputy wrote the driver of that car a citation. Deputy Jackson then asked for, and received, permission to search the woman's purse. During that search the deputy indicated he found a white pill that had been broken in half. As he continued to look in Senior's purse he reportedly found a glass pipe inside a sock. One end of the pipe was stuffed with steel wool, he added.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Lady Brahman soccer coach Sonya Smith enters her second year with a lot of optimism and pride as she fully expects the team to win more games, score more goals, and generally be more exciting to watch this year. Nineteen girls have joined the squad this year and nine of them are upper classmen with six juniors. The team also has ve sophomores and ve freshmen. "We are pretty inexperienced but we have a lot of heart. I think we have a great attitude this year," she explained. Captains this year are Selina Sanchez who was named most improved player last year and Brianna Nunez, who was team MVP last year. The team lost four solid seniors from last year which included Brittney Ball, Araceli Sanchez, Crystal Garcia, and Taylor Fulford. Coach Smith said the team appears to be strongest on the defensive side of the ball. She wants to develop some goal scorers on the forward line. Kailey Hoover is expected to anchor the defense and freshman Daniela Mojica will take over as the goal keeper. "I think we can take advantage of a little speed this year. We have a lot of inexperienced girls but I hope our heart and attitude will prevail," she added. Smith said she expects a positive attitude and 100-percent effort from her players this year. She has encouraged the girls to play year round soccer to improve their skills. Sanchez said she was honored to be named team captain and her goal is to make the team connect like a family and to have fun this year. "I know even tough were young that we will actually make it through. I have faith in us." Sanchez also wants the girls to love to be with the team and to practice and to not feel discouraged if they don't have immediate success. Nunez said she hopes to be a good leader this year. She expects the team to continue to get better and build for the future. She also said she likes the talent of the new girls, "We have some girls with really strong legs and hopefully we'll make some goals. It will be something to work on," Nunez said every girl on the team wants to be there and loves the sport of soccer and that should help build momentum and success. Dawn Fox will serve as assistant Coach. The rst home game will be on Nov. 14. Top district opponents this year will include Jensen Beach. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Accident Victims...Call Us First!€ Tractor Trailer Crashes € Auto Crashes € Motorcycle Crashes € Wrongful Death FREEConsultation Se Habla Espaol Phones answered 24 Hours, 7 days-a-week! www.crashinjuries.com 4 4 6 7 7 1 0 0 13 Okeechobee News November 7, 2012 Lady Brahmans have ‘great attitude’ Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyCarissa Licata and Brianna Nunez lead the Lady Brahman soccer team in a conditioning drill at a recent practice. Youths can join the FWC conservation teamEven though young people are allowed to hunt and sh in Florida without having to buy a license until they turn 16 years old, a change in the license system now makes it possible for youngsters to voluntarily purchase their licenses early and start contributing today toward conservation. Youths under 16 years of age can now purchase their very rst annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. "You're never too young to start contributing to our great state's hunting and shing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources," said Richard Corbett, a Commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). "And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that." Youths under 16 years of age will still have to complete the state's hunter safety certi cation before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes aren't required for shing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsman's license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater sh and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (craw sh) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive approximately $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the nearly six million acres of the state's public-hunting, wildlife management area system and the state's saltwater and freshwater sheries. Go to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. The new hunting and shing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and shing licenses, such as county tax collectors of ces. They also can be bought online at License.MyFWC.com. The youth license became available at the same time the FWC launched its new Recreational License Issuance Services (RLIS) on Oct. 2. The license vendor is Brandt Information Services of Tallahassee.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News With a strong returning core it appears the OHS wrestling program could be a factor for the 2012-13 campaign. Coach Robert Olive has accumulated a group of veteran wrestlers and some younger wrestlers with potential and promise on his roster this year. Veterans like Ryan Hagan and Alan Leitner will be the team captains this year. Mike Thomas, Larry Tabor and Bryan Levins also have tasted a lot of success. Greg Hernandez proved to be an up and comer as a freshman last year. At nearly every weight level the Brahmans have a chance to win. Olive keeps the kids on their toes by competition. Everyone in the lineup has to earn their spot and continue to improve each w eek. Hagan said he is ready for his senior year. He has quali ed for the regional for three years and would like to take the next step and go to the state tournament this year. "I have to wrestle harder and get better. I can also help the young kids and assist them with their skills." Hagan attended a camp at Martin County High School and worked with wrestler Tony Ramos who nished third at nationals last year and the coaching staff of Iowa University, a wrestling hot bed. Hagan said he wants to be a smarter wrestler this year. He expects to have tough competition from wrestlers at Martin County and South Fork High School. "I feel the team is good right now but we can be better. I think our new kids will improve," he explained. He will wrestle at either 145 or 138 pounds this year. Leitner said he was honored to be the captain of the OHS wrestling team. His season last year was ended prematurely by a broken collarbone. Allen showed his toughness by wrestling with the injury at districts. His goal is to make the state tournament this year in the 171-pound weight division. He lifted weights over the summer and competed in tournaments in Wellington and Olympic Heights in order to improve. He also held a summer job where he lifted sh boxes all night to stay in shape. "I still have a lot of room to improve. I have con dence and I'm never intimidated. I think my senior year will be fun so I urge the fans to come out and watch us. I hope to bang around some people this year," he added. The wrestling team opened up their season with a preseason tournament this week. They host the Big Lake Classic on Dec. 8 and host duals on Dec. 12 and Jan. 16. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 (561) 747-1232 Improve your appearance, your confidence, and your self esteem.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News OHS girls basketball enters the 2012-2013 season with high hopes as they return two A ll-State players, and have improved the surrounding cast around their stars. Coach Erin Morrow said she fully expects to have a better season this year after a (1014) record last year. The team opens up this w eek with a preseason tournament in Highlands County where they were scheduled to meet Bartow and Lake Placid. There will be just one basketball team this year as the junior varsity team was eliminated for this year. “It was a hard decision and we weighed our options to gure out what was best for the kids,” Morrow admitted. The last two years the junior varsity team has not had a lot of interest and actually folded during the middle of their schedule. Morrow said she has told the girls they need to work harder in the gym and with their conditioning if the team is going to improve. She admits it has been a struggle to get the message through. “We hope for a better work ethic in practice and better results in games. One of our goals is to surpass the .500 mark,” she noted Teams like Sebastian River and Vero Beach and others on the coast will always be a tough challenge for Okeechobee as their players all play year round. The team features center Ami Edwards who averaged a double double in points, 13.3 points and 12.7 rebounds last year, and point guard Carley McCoin who averaged 13.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.2 steals per game last year. The team will have to replace solid players in Cavel Campbell and Jekerria Edwards who graduated. They also will be without senior Shamarah Shanks who injured her knee a few weeks ago. In the mix at guard are Taylor Trent, Jade Micco, Lexi Manson and freshmen Cheyenne Nunez. Forward candidates include Bethany Stuart, Emily Worth, Baylee Farless and Sha‘Dajia Williams. Edwards said she was very impressed with the talent of the younger players and she was optimistic they will have a winning record this year. “We have a very good class of freshmen and I feel I’ll do well. My goal is to average a double-double again, keep my grades up and go to college to become a registered nurse,” she added. McCoin said she also felt the team was improved and capable of competing in every game. She plays basketball all year long and her AAU team, The Florida Lady Comets, nished seventh at the national tournament at Disney World this past year. “I thin k this team will improve this year. I de nitel y have tried to be a leader and help the other girls with their skills.” The Lady Brahmans open their home schedule on Nov. 15 against State Champion Sebastian River. They also compete in the Berean Christian Christmas Tourne y again this year. Key opponents this year will include Martin County, Port St. Lucie, Vero Beach and Fort Pierce Central.
