The Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida has a message for tobacco users this Great American Smokeout: There Is a Quitter In You. The Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 15, is an ideal day for Florida smokers to nd their inner quitter. This observance, currently in its 37th year, is sponsored by the A merican Cancer Society and raises awareness about the dangers of smoking and the many effective resources available to successfully quit. Tobacco Free Florida is encouraging smokers to make a quit plan during the Great American Smokeout or to plan in advance to quit smoking that day. A comprehensive quit plan is key to quitting for good. "The most important step a smoker can take for a healthier and longer life is to quit smoking," said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "We urge Floridians to take advantage of our resources, and what better time to do so than during the Great American Smokeout. The American Cancer Society has been an invaluable partner in our efforts to help smokers quit." Tobacco Free Florida's evidence-based resources are available free of charge and can help tobacco users set a personalized plan that includes counseling from a certi ed and trained Quit Coach and FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), when appropriate. This combined approach of counseling and NRT can double or triple a tobacco user's chance of quitting. Seven out of 10 adult smokers report that they want to quit completely. Those who have not been successful in the past should continue to try because most former smokers make several attempts before quitting permanently. Tobacco Free Florida offers three ways to quit: CALL: Call the Florida Quitline at 1-877U-CAN-NOW to speak with a Quit Coach who will help you assess your addiction and help you create a personalized quit plan.

she could not walk or pick up her baby. Luckily, her mother was present so she carried Misty and the baby to the car along with the basin lled with the blood clot and drove Misty to her doctor's of ce. The doctor saw how pale and weak Misty was so he immediately got her into the emergency room and ordered an emergency D & C be done. The doctor found that the huge clot was only a part of her problem. He found she had apparently been losing blood over a prolonged period and her blood volume was so low she ultimately needed between ve and six units of donated blood. Today, Misty is the mother of three beautiful childrenher daughter and two sons. She works at Aaron's and sings country music songs. You can check out her singing ability on her Facebook page. Misty knows that her life could have ended tragically had it not been for several people who took the time and made the effort to donate the blood that saved her life. She wants to remind everyone that, if you can, it is important to give blood because someone is going to need ityou just don't know who that someone is. On Nov. 17 and 18, be someone's hero; take the time and make the effort to give blood at the Seventh Annual Okeechobee Blood Roundup. It will be held at Hammerhead's on State Road 70 East from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Every donor receives a Roundup T-shirt, goody bag, and a chance to win one of the many door prizes generously donated by our business community. I will be there and I hope to see you there, too. Susan WilliamsVeterans DayWhat a lovely way to spend a Veterans day morning, in the park with Veterans, their wives, children and grandchildren, dignitaries, speakers, friends. To look into the sky, to observe, the airplanes ying over, in the clouded blue sky, with the ags ying high on the mast. Music lls the air as the backdrop of cars and trucks as folks are busy going to and from work, or their daily chores of life. You know, it is so easy to say, "Why aren' t more folks here. Why don't they celebrat e with the others?" Well, if you really thin k about it, they are here in their own way. They are free to go to work, free to go shopping, free to take their children to the park o r the beach. We are FREE! To see the ROTC students present the colors, as they have for quite some time now, I can only become more proud each year, I am with them. They demonstrate such maturity while they do this, keeping in mind they truly are just children. As I watched everyone salute the ag, sing together and pray, it is by far so heart warming, no wonder I cannot keep from tearing up, or having a lump in my throat. When I see people together like this, it makes m e think how strong America really is. We hav e just passed a brutal election process, and a week later here we are in the park united, praying and pledging our love for God and the ag. Let us always strive to be united, even i f we disagree, we can still, follow the greates t commandment, "Love One Another." Bobbi Poole V eterans Day I was pleased to see the nice turnout for the Veterans Day observance in Flagler Park on Monday. And the yover was a treat. Happy 237th Birthday to the Marine Corps! Semper Fi!Elections According to the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections web site, they had 140 percent voter turn out. They explain this with the following statement: "Note* turnout percentages will show over 100 percent due to a two-page ballot. Not all voters voted the second card containing the amendments." Now, I am not sure how they do math in St. Lucie County, but I thought voter turn out w as counted by the numbers of voters at the polls, not the number of pages in the ballot. We the people petition the Obama administration to recount the election! So, immorality has gotten us where we are? Wall Street, banks, bailouts, housing market, unemployment and rising consumer costs had nothing to do with it? I believe we will have to live with the decision. Where's the guarantee that major fraud won't also be a part of the recount? The greatest problem we have in this country is immorality, causing all the corruption and everything else that is negative. Of course the most immoral and corrupt, think things are just great the way they are. This is why we are doomed to go to our downfall. It is embarrassing to live in Florida during an election year. I hope the voters in Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties can get some supervisors of elections who know what they are doing before the next election. The rest of the country manages to hold elections without all these problems. It is embarrassing for Florida to always be the one state causing the problems.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.Family fun fest To Butch's Redneck Yacht Club and Bubba's Redneck Yacht Club, thank you for all of your efforts to have the perfect family fun festival on Saturday. Blood donors soughtUntil I began writing stories for the Okeechobee Blood Roundup, telling of local people who had received a blood transfusion, I did not know that the blessed event of childbirth held so many dire complications for women. I have sent several stories to the Okeechobee News of young women who experienced loss of blood during childbirth that required them to receive a blood transfusion; however, none have been as compelling to me as the story of Misty Hopkins' rst birth. Here is her story: On June 23, 1997, Misty's rst child was born a precious baby girl. After the delivery and back in her room, Misty felt a strong pressure in her lower abdomen so she went into the bathroom and sat down. Misty says she died at that moment. She can recall in vivid detail how her spirit left her body, and the peace she felt as she looked down on her body. She saw the nurses nd her and watched as they administered a shot of adrenaline to jump-start her heart and bring her back to life. Misty spent two more days in the hospital then was able to go home with her daughter. At home, Misty passed a huge blood clot that contained 800 cc of blood; the amount of blood over lled a pink basin that hospitals supply their patients. Misty was so weak that November 14, 2012 4 Okeechobee News OPINION Public Forum/Speak Out Letters to the editor Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and easier to share your ideas and converse with others.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce Investigations log in the Nov. 11 edition o f the Okeechobee News included a report of a license tag from the 1500 block of S.W. 35th Circle. This was incorrect. The tag was stolen from the vehicle at a storage area on U.S. Highway 441 S.E. The vehicle's owner's home address was used by mistake in the Investigations log instead. We apologize for this error and any confusion it might have caused. Correction Misty nearly died at childbirth due to blood loss.

His bond w as set at $35,000, and he remains in the Okeechobee County Jail. Antonio Medina, 20, W. Hayford, Chicago, Ill., was charged with battery on a law enforcement of cer. His bond was set at $30,000 and he has been released on bond. Arrest af davits by Detective Corporal Shane Snyder indicated that there were eight OCSO deputies working a paid uniform detail at the event Sunday afternoon. The brawl broke out after a private security of cer hired by the event's promoter, Roman Cardenas of Port St. Lucie, was punched in the mouth by a member of the crowd. When the deputies moved in to help that of cer, one of the female singers, Marisol, started to curse at the of cers over the loud speaker system, stated the report. She apparently continued to call the deputies profane names in both Spanish and English which, stated Cpl. Snyder, in amed the crowd. When Cpl. Snyder pointed to Marisol and told her to step down from the stage and come to him she replied: "No, you come and get me," stated the report. Marisol and Virginia are both singers and front the band. According to the arrest report, when deputies went on stage to remove Marisol one of them was kicked in the groin by Virginia, w hile another was hit in the side of the head w ith a full can of beer by Maldonado. Medina, who claimed to be Virginia's boyfriend, grabbed Cpl. Snyder's hand and pulled it away from his girlfriend. By this time the crowd had erupted and was throwing cans of beer at the deputies on stage. Cpl. Snyder went on to state in his report that he and another detective found Marisol and Virginia outside the venue in a white van. The women were removed from the van and as they were being led to waiting patrol units the crowd continued to hurl insults their way, as well as cans of beer and bottles of water, added the report. "At no time did either sister say or do anything to help stop or resolve the violent situation," wrote Cpl. Snyder in his report. In an interview Tuesday, Nov. 13, OCSO Major Noel Stephen said something has to be done before the next event is held at the Agri-Civic Center. "It's the sheriff's of ce standing that the alcohol, and the way it's distributed, at these event needs to be curtailed signi cantly," he said. "The county wants to continue (to have the events) because they are a revenue producer." Alta Mosely, director of the Agri-Civic Center, said Mr. Cardenas had a standard contract with the county. Under the terms of that pact he would either pay the county $1,000 a day or 10 percent of the ticket saleswhichever amount is greater. In this case, he paid the county $2,596. The promoter also had to pay the utility and dumpster fees, pay a percentage of beer sales, pay to have the facility cleaned, pay the sheriff's of ce for their deputies and bring his own security staffalso at his cost. Ms. Mosely said, according to a count at the gate, there were 1,200 people who attended the rodeo/concert. That means there were eight deputies and 10 private security personnel who found themselves surrounded by concert revelers and being hit from every direction with beer cans and other objects. "We've had some problems there in the past," said Maj. Stephen. "In fact, we had shots red in the parking lot one time that really concerned us. We have never had a Mexican rodeo where we didn't arrest four to six people." And that included Sunday's event where: two men were arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple battery; a 17-yearold juvenile was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of alcohol by a minor; and two other menOscar Francisco Depaz-Chaparro, 24, of Belle Glade, and Jose Cevico-Torres, 36, of Jupiterwere both arrested on felony charges of possession of cocaine. "I regret this happened in our county but, please, do not take this as an apology for my deputies' actions," said Sheriff Paul May. "They did what they had to do to control the situation. There were approximately 1,600 people in attendance and large amounts of alcohol consumed. There were no injuries to the patrons that we know of." Both Sheriff May and Maj. Stephen said they will be meeting soon with county administrator Robbie Chartier and her staff to determine the fate of these events. Maj. Stephen said he wasn't sure when that meeting would take place, but he knew it would be sometime before the Dec. 2 event. BRAWLContinued From Page 1 Antonio Medina Luis Maldonado

It should be used after you have tried other treatments such as medications and behavioral therapy and they have not worked, or you could not tolerate them. You should have a successful trial assessment before receiving InterStim Therapy. You cannot have diathermy (deep heat treatment from electromagnetic energy) if you have an InterStim device. InterStim Therapy is not intended for patients with a urinary blockage. Safety and eectiveness have not been established for pregnancy and delivery; patients under the age of 16; or for patients with neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis. In addition to risks related to surgery, complications can include pain at the implant sites, new pain, infection, lead (thin wire) movement/migration, device problems, interactions with certain other devices or diagnostic equipment such as MRI, undesirable changes in urinary or bowel function, and uncomfortable stimulation (sometimes described as a jolting or shocking feeling). This therapy is not for everyone. Please consult your physician to decide whether InterStim Therapy is right for you. A prescription is required. For further information, please call Medtronic at 1-800-328-0810 and/or consult Medtronics website at www.medtronic.com. USA Rx Only.

That man, Terrence Eugene Hill, w as released from Raulerson Hospital on Friday, Nov. 9, and was then arrested on a felony charge of attempted felony murder. Hill, 24, S.E. 14th Ave., is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond. At the time of this alleged incident, Hill w as out on bond following his arrest on felony charges of sale of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to sell. Because of his new charges, those bonds have been revoked and Hill is now being held without bond on the two drug charges. An arrest report by Detective William Suggs, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated that Hill approached the other man, Javas Jones, in an aggressive manner and “... with the intent of killing a human being ... .” In that report, Detective Suggs pointed out that witness statements indicated that Hill approached Mr. Jones with a gun in his hand and he was trying to pull a second gun from the pocket of his jacket. However, Hill was allegedly having trouble pulling out the weapon because the gun’s hammer was caught on the pocket. Mr. Jones reportedly told the detective that he ran around the side of a club and was lying on the ground. About that time, he continued, someone yelled to him that there was a gun hidden under a box. Mr. Jones then told the investigator he picked up the gun and red two rounds in Hill’s direction. Hill red at Mr. Jones 10 to 12 times, stated the arrest report. According to the report Hill apparently ran out of bullets, reloaded and red more rounds at Mr. Jones. He was not hit. One of Jones’ rounds found its mark, however, as Hill received a bullet wound to his buttocks, according to the arrest report. After Hill was released from the hospital, he spoke with the detective and initiall y denied ever having a rearm. However, he later admitted to shooting at Mr. Jones and told the detective that he denied having the weapon because “... he was a convicted felon and he has already been to prison for possession of a rearm by a convicted felon.” Detective Suggs said the two men have been arguing for quite some time over $20 lost in a dice game, over Mr. Jones getting in a ght with Hill’s brother and because Mr. Jones was talking to Hill’s girlfriend.

Florida’s food producers supply our essential needs for a healthy diet and help maintain our stable material security. Consumers, in turn, help farmers and ranchers remain in business by purchasing the foods they grow. Each year during the week before Thanksgiving agricultural producers join with other residents to celebrate their mutual relationships during Farm-City Week. A national observance, Farm-City Week 2012 will be celebrated from Nov. 16 through Nov. 22. Members of County Farm Bureaus and other volunteers throughout Florida will mark the occasion by holding public meal functions, sponsoring farm tours and conducting other activities that help educate non-farmers about contemporary agriculture. Many Farm Bureau members will make donations of food to charitable organizations that aid needy citizens as part of the event. Participants in Farm-City Week will also emphasize the importance of essential relationships with urban residents to supply, sell and deliver nished products across the country and around the world. The availability of a safe, abundant domestic food supply makes possible the quality of life in our state. Good management of farm properties provides greenspace, maintains wildlife habitat, preserves freshwater recharge areas and controls invasive species. “Every day our Florida farmers and ranchers work hard to produce more than 300 commodities,” said John Hoblick, president of Florida Farm Bureau Federation. “They know that it takes many partnerships with other citizens to bring food to the family table. We are proud of those partnerships and we look forward to celebrating them during Farm-City Week. We also appreciate the efforts of so many volunteers around the state in planning and organizing Farm-City Wee k events.” According to researchers at the Universit y of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, agriculture and related sectors generate an economic impact of $135 billion annually. This sector also employs more than 1.6 million workers in our state. Farm-City Week gives all of us an opportunity to thank our fellow Floridians who help make the bounty of our food suppl y possible. The Kiwanis Club of Okeechobee and the Okeechobee Area Agri-Council will cohost the 19th Annual Kiwanis/Ag Council Farm-City Week Luncheon at the Okeechobee KOA on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 11:30 a.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Farm Credit, 863-76306466 or Farm Bureau, 863-763-3101.
