IRSC Student SpotlightSpecial to the Okeechobee News Britani Bryner, a 2007 graduate of Okeechobee High School, is now working as a teacher in Okeechobee herself. “I really enjoying mentoring students and knowing that I make a difference,” she said. “Each day brings something new with the opportunity to be creative and inspire young minds.” The 24-year-old Okeechobee resident teaches 8th grade reading at Yearling Middle School and is also chairperson for the graduation prom. Ms. Bryner earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle School Mathematics from IRSC in 2011. She had previously earned her Associate in Arts Degree at IRSC, taking many of her classes at the Dixon Hendry Campus in Okeechobee. “I liked the convenience of multiple campuses, the smaller classes and personal attention I received as an IRSC student,” she said. “My professors pushed me to be the best I could be.” Ms. Bryer plans to continue her education to earn a Master’s Degree and teach at the college level. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Buy a Home Delivery subscription for $6 a monthand receive an E-Subscription FREE* Your local news available right at your fingertips!

All 16 counties in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) received signi cantly above-average rainfall in the past 30 days, leading to the second wettest April since 1997. A district-wide average of 4.35 inches of rain for the month fell from Orlando to the Florida Keys, representing 173 percent of average, or 1.83 inches above average. Areas along the east coast received between 0.54 and 3.27 inches above average rainfall. The Southwest Coast received 1.50 inches above average rainfall. "April's showers helped stabilize the regional system during the driest time of the year," said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. "The challenge in May is preparing for the wet season ahead while also balancing the needs of Everglades wildlife and the environment." Heading into the upcoming rainy season, water managers operate the system so that key water bodies are positioned at lower water levels to provide capacity to store wet season and tropical system rainfall. At the same time, the timing and distribution of water is being cautiously managed because large or rapid uctuations can impact nesting wading birds and other wildlife. SFWMD: Above average rainfall for April By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News The First United Methodist Church of Okeechobee Men's Group put on a breakfast for United for Families to explain their efforts to combat child abuse in Okeechobee on April 26. The Stop the Tears Breakfast included a testimonial of one of their clients Anna Califano, an address from Chief Executive Of cer Christine Demetriades, a testimonial of an Okeechobee foster parent, and other testimonies. Mrs. Demetriades has spent 24 years in the community working with child abuse and neglect and told the crowd on hand that their efforts are needed, "It may seem inconceivable to harm a baby, a child, a young adult, but it happens daily, expectedly and unexpectedly." United for Families has been the contracted agency on the Treasure Coast dealing with child abuse since 2002. They are responsible for any child that is known to have suffered abuse and or neglect. They partner with 106 other local agencies and groups to provide a variety of services. The Board Chairman is North Elementary School Principal Pat McCoy. The case load has dropped from over 2,000 to 1,200 over the past decade on the Treasure Coast, she explained. They work on over 5,000 cases per year on the Treasure Coast. "This business is shrouded in shame, embarrassment, and anger. The main thing that brings hope is the volunteers who work on the problem. You really send a powerful message that you care about children and won't allow child abuse in our community," she added. The breakfast put a face to both the victims and those that are working to stop the ongoing problem. Okeechobee, in the past few years, has had either the highest rate or near highest rate in child abuse in Florida. Foster parent Ada Morris said working with foster kids has been very rewarding to her. She said it is tough to give up the children but it becomes easier when they know the child will be happy. She has been a foster parent to 14 children. She said a hands on approach with these kids really works wonders. "One little act of kindness does have a ripple affect. A lot of these kids are show me types of kids. When you show them you care it is uplifting," she explained. A donation from Pam Lynch, CPA, also helped make the breakfast possible. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Horse Feed SpecialWalpole Feed & Supply Co. 763-6905 • Hwy 98 N Montura 12% Pellet 50lb bag ...................$725Farm & Ranch 12% Pellet 50lb bag ...................$945Golden Grain 12% Pellet 50lb bag ...............$1035 Sale runs May 4 th 11 th florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself!

Kiwanis Club hosts guest speakersKatie Alonzo and Wendy Parent spoke to the Kiwanis Club of Okeechobee last week about Drug Court, otherwise known as ALL Rise. Ms. Parent is the local Drug Court Coordinator and Ms. Alonzo is Assistant Public Defender. All Rise is a program designed to rehabilitate drug addicted offenders rather than imprison them. The process not only rehabilitates addicts but also saves money and reduces the over population program among prisons. The program originated in 1989 in Miami due to the growing crack cocaine epidemic. Okeechobee adopted the program in 2007. The State Attorney of ce is responsible for deciding which offenders are offered entrance into the program. If an addict fails to complete the program, then he or she must complete community service or jail time. According to the Drug Court website, 75 percent of addicts that complete the program do not relapse and get arrested again. Several celebrities endorse the All Rise program most notably Martin Sheen, Matthew Perry and Tom Arnold among others.

May 3, 2013 4 Okeechobee News OPINION Public Forum/Speak Out Tax money Why is the building that was bought or leased for the Supervisor of Elections still sitting there empty? It is the double wide/ manufactured building across from the old courthouse at 305 N.W. 2nd St. Why isn’t it listed on the property appraisers web site? That lot is very obviously NOT vacant, yet they show no building on their web site. Is this something else that is costing the taxpayers money?  The trailer that temporarily housed the Elections of ce is not actually empty. But if they would take the items stored there and auction them off, it would be better suited than just letting them sit. Consider the brand new doors and windows from the old Wooleys shed location at the industrial park that w ere left behind when they vacated the building. All you had to do was have a few v endors bid on the entire package and take them away, but yet your tax dollars hauled them to the dump. Same at the other facility located there that had the tile business. Pallets of tile hauled away and dumped. The building was left exposed and then it was stripped of its entire contents by thieves. The entire structure has to be gutted and redone before it can be rented again. Take all these little things and throw them in one big pot, it adds up quick.  The small stuff it does add up. For example, a lot of the tax collector’s business can be done online now. Promote the online business which in turn means a smaller building is required.Thoughts to ponder Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you’ll never get back.LOST I’m sure the property owner is tired of the public trashing his property. Take a walk or ride on any property that the public as access to and look at the trash laying around, food wrappers, drink cans, water bottles, etc. Couldn’t a foot bridge be placed across the locks and solve the problem?  Hikers and bicycles are generally pretty good about not trashing the environment. They are there to enjoy the beauty of nature, not destroy it. The only food or drink they have is what they carry. Perhaps he had a problem with teens or vagrants hanging around those old cabins.  A foot and bicycle bridge across Taylor Creek would probably cost more than buying that little strip of land on the east side of Taylor Creek.Speak Out has moved online, where i t is quicker and easier to share your i deas and converse with others.

Rotary’s 10th Annual L.O.S.T Bike Ride It was another picturesque day as bicyclists from all over the state of Florida set out for the ride of a lifetime, a 54 mile route along top of the Hoover Dike surrounding beautiful Lake Okeechobee. Over 75 bikers and walkers departed from the Scott Driver Boat Ramp at Kissimmee River where they cycled to Port Mayaca and back. Many riders experienced the wonders of nature as they encountered several different species of waterfowl, alligators basking in the sun and elds of wild owers in full bloom. As one of the riders stated, “This was indeed the best ride I have been on in some time. I found myself caught up in the scenery as I never pictured the lake to be so solemn and beautiful. I loved seeing the wildlife along the trail. The rest stops along the way followed the BBQ luncheon were greatly appreciated. I’m disheartened to know this will be Rotary’s last ride. I look forward to the “Walk on the Wild Side” event!” The annual ride is organized by the Rotary Club of Okeechobee who in turn donates all proceeds back to the community in the form of student scholarships, mini-grants for school teachers, Grad-night and other local projects that support youth and education.

According to Deputy Garrison’s report Graves walked toward the teacher and tried to grab him, but the teacher grabbed the student and called for assistance. At this point, continued the deputy, Graves picked up the teacher and slammed him to the oor. The instructor apparently tried to break his fall with his right hand, but broke his w rist instead. Another school employee reportedly told the deputy that Graves “... was very aggressive ...” toward the teacher, who defended himself by hanging onto the teen. A surveillance video of the incident backed up what the two employees said, added Deputy Garrison. The program at the facility is contracted through the State of Florida by the G4S Security Company, indicated the deputy.

Any permits remaining after June 12 will be issued during Phase III on a rst-come, rst-served basis beginning at 10 a.m. June 14 until all are sold. Anyone can apply during Phase III – despite having already bought a permit in Phase I or Phase II. Alligator trapping licenses and two hidev alidation tags costs $272 for Florida residents and $1,022 for nonresidents. If you happen to buy an additional permit during Phase III, it will cost $62, regardless of w hether you are a resident or not. No other hunting license or permits are required to participate in the hunts. Each permit enables you to take two alligators from whichever county or body of w ater you were awarded during a speci c harvest period. To purchase a permit, you must be at least 18 years old by opening day, A ug. 15. If you don’t have all the gear necessary and you’d rather assist a friend who purchased an alligator trapping license, you can pay $52 for an alligator trapping “agent” license. You don’t even have to be 18 to buy one. This license entitles you to take alligators, but only when you’re with a licensed person.

Osceola, 28, Knott’s Landing, Okeechobee, is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail without bond on felony charges of possession of heroin, possession of a controlled substance (buprenorphine) and tampering with physical evidence. She was also charged with the misdemeanor of possession of drug paraphernalia. An arrest af davit by Deputy Matt Crawford, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated that around 1:58 p.m. W ednesday, May 1, he saw Osceola driving a Dodge sports utility vehicle that had an expired license tag. He went on to say that he was also aware of an outstanding felony w arrant charging her with driving while license suspended habitual offender. The deputy stated that he stopped the w oman in the Publix Supermarket parking lot. Not long after the traf c stop detectives from the Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force arrived and helped Deputy Crawford inventory Osceola’s vehicle. During that inventory drug paraphernalia was allegedly found on the oor of the SUV that included a hypodermic syringe, a measuring spoon and a belt. The deputies also found two small plastic bags that contained a brown substance, stated the detective in an arrest report. According to that detective a eld test was done on the brown substance and it indicated a positive result for the presence of heroin. A residue on the spoon was also eld tested and it, too, indicated a positive result for the presence of heroin, added the task force detective. The detective went on to add that Osceola was later taken to the Raulerson Hospital emergency room for further examination. During that exam, continued the detective, 10 small plastic bags containing a residue were found as well as a tablet and three partial tablets. The tablet was identi ed as buprenorphine, a schedule III narcotic, the detective added. It was also mentioned in the report that those 10 plastic bags were consistent with the two found under the front seat of Osceola’s vehicle. Osceola, stated the detective, was arrested April 25 for violation of probation and was out of jail on bond when she was arrested Wednesday.

By Bob WattendorfFWC Angling ethics is about common sense and courtesy. It contributes to every angler’s safety, success and enjoyment, as well as the future of our sport. Conservation agencies, including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), shing guides, tourism destinations, marinas, tackle shops, anglers and boaters all play a role in making shing more fun and satisfying for everyone. Most share an abiding love for aquatic resources and the role conservation stewardship plays in keeping our natural resources pristine. The following list is a good reminder. An ethical angler:  Promotes, through example and mentoring, an ethical use of aquatic resources.  Values and respects the aquatic environment and all living things.  Treats other anglers, boaters and property owners with courtesy and respect, including removing boat trailers promptly from active launching areas, watching w akes around other boaters, and not crowding other anglers.  Avoids spilling and never dumps pollutants, such as gas or oil.  Properly disposes of trash, including w orn lines, leaders and hooks.  Recycles whenever possible and keeps shing sites litter-free.  Purchases required shing licenses and permits. (Exempt anglers often buy a license anyway, to contribute to conservation. All shing license dollars go to the FWC – and increase matching federal funds for Sport Fish Restoration. See MyFWC.com/ License.)  Learns and obeys angling and boating regulations and can identify local sh to adhere to the rules.  Keeps no more sh than needed for consumption.  Carefully handles and releases all sh that are unwanted or illegal to keep, minimizing harm to the sh.

Even though it’s the right thing to do, it’s nice to have an extra incentive. Hence the TrophyCatch program, which rewards anglers for releasing trophy bass with prizes donated by the shing industry. Just registering enrolls anglers into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Bass caught on live baits or arti cial worms often swallow a hook, thus reducing their chances for survival. Biologists recommend setting the hook immediately after a strike, which increases the chance of hooking the sh in the mouth. Land the sh quickly without exhausting it. Barbless hooks contribute to easier and quicker releases. If you don’t have a barbless hook, simply pinch down the barbs with shing pliers. Remember: Smaller hooks do less harm than larger ones; single hooks are better than trebles; and circle hooks are best of all. Don’t use rough or knotted landing nets that cause abrasions as a sh thrashes about and scrapes its mucus, that slimy coating that serves as a primary defense against disease. When releasing bass, be gentle. Grip it by the lower jaw and, if possible, keep it in the water when removing a hook. “Don’t drop or throw a sh back,” advises Champeau. “Instead, lower it gently into the water so it can swim away.” If a sh is taken from the water to measure or photograph, avoid touching its eyes and gills. Support a heavy sh’s body with your other hand if you must lift it out of the water. One of the most crucial rules is to avoid keeping the sh out of water for more than 30 seconds at a time (approximately as long as you hold your breath). So have your camera, scales and measuring tape ready to go. You can place the sh back in a livewell or dip it over the side to let it breathe if you need to reset for another photo. The livewell should be aerated, at nearly the same temperature as the lake water and, if desired, you can use uniodized salt to stimulate slime production (0.5 pounds salt per 10 gallons of water). Never place sh in chlorinated tap water. Commercial de-hookers, long-nose pliers or hemostats reduce stress. If the sh is hooked too deeply, simply cut the line and leave the hook. The sh’s digestive juices will erode the hook. Let’s keep Florida the Fishing Capital o f the World by recycling our catches.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Taylor Pritchard has been selected as the new head volleyball coach for Okeechobee High School. The OHS alumnus from the class of 2009 is used to being active on campus. When she attended high school she was Class President for two years, Beta Club President, a member of the Principals Students Activity Committee, the Finance Academy President, a member of the National Honor Society, and a two year player for OHS volleyball. “I was so excited about the prospect of being the head coach. I was excited for even the opportunity to interview. When they hired me I said they trust me and want to bring me in now, get to work,” she said. Pritchard will earn a degree in elementary education this December from Florida Atlantic University and will student teach on the high school campus this fall. Pritchard has also been the head coach of the Big Lake Juniors 14 year old team for the past three years. “I feel like the girls I’m coaching now were my little sisters, and puppies that I’ve been raising up. I know the girls, I know their games and I’m excited. I think knowing them will make it an easier transition,” she explained. Pritchard’s promising athletic career was derailed in her junior year. She suffered a back injury and tore two discs in her back. She went through a year of physical therapy. She was ready to return to action as a senior but got into a car accident and was injured again. She then turned her attention to coaching the sport. She said she has been fueled by the injury because even though she couldn’t play the game, she still loved it, as she watched matches at the University of Florida when she attended the school and also every high school match she could attend. “It was so hard getting hurt because it was just devastating. When I nally gured out that volleyball wasn’t the best way to get through school I got involved in other things,” she added. She praised the former Coaches like Todd Jones, George May and Jacque Robinson for laying the groundwork for a very solid program. She also praised the Big Lake Juniors Program that provides travel ball and year round play for Okeechobee girls. Pritchard said she considers herself an extremely stern but positive coach. She said good things can be pulled from the most negative situations and from the hardest matches. She plans to build the girls up at human beings, insure they are good students and people and get them involved in the school and the community. She said there are more important things to a person than just being a good athlete. She will focus the next few months on her plan for the season. There will be open gym at the high school one night per week. The girls will also have conditioning two mornings per week over the summer. She also said she is committed to Okeechobee and plans to be a long term coach that builds the program to even higher levels, “I really wanted this job when this group of girls was coming up. I won’t take away from the older girls and I’m excited to meet them and get to know them. I plan to stick around for a while.” Pritchard also plans to get help from her coaching mentors and use them as valuable resources. She also expects the team to be very competitive again this year and a district title and regional contender. “I love this community and the support they give the high school. I will push the girls as hard as they can be pushed. I’m young, but I’m ambitious and I’m excited. I feel the Lord put me in this position for a reason and I’m ready for the challenge.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 You are welcome to come visit and enjoy the traditional worship and music.

For the past 16 years, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has offered these unique fall-season hunts for deer, wild hog and released quail on the best of the state’s public hunting lands. Maybe it’s time you look into getting in on the action and experience the hunt of a lifetime. These extraordinary hunts offer large tracts of land with an abundance of game and low hunting pressure. All deer hunts enable you to take only mature bucks with at least one antler having four or more points, one inch or longer. This practice of deer management offers hunters excellent chances of taking quality bucks on public land. Wild hogs also are legal to take, and there is no size or bag limit on them. These special-opportunity deer and wild hog hunts take place on Fort Drum (Indian River County), Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter County), Triple N Ranch (Osceola County) and Green Swamp West Unit (Pasco County) wildlife management areas. Fort Drum has 20 permits available for its seven-day general-gun deer and hog hunt on 20,858 acres; they cost $50, should you get drawn. Lake Panasoffkee offers eight fourday archery hunts on the 8,676-acre tract at a cost of $100 each. Triple N Ranch has two seven-day general-gun deer and hog hunts on its 15,391 acres, and each permit costs $175. Green Swamp West Unit is where James Stovall took the state’s highest-scoring deer on record – a 25-point, nontypical that netted a 206 Boone-and-Crockett score. He took the trophy buck in 1999 after getting drawn for the special-opportunity archery hunt. The area offers archery and gun hunts on 34,335 acres, and permits cost $100 each. The FWC also has week-long released-quail hunts on the Blackwater Carr Unit in Santa Rosa County. With these hunts, you must bring and release your own pen-raised quail. There’s just one $100 permit available for each of the 16 weeks, and if you’re lucky enough to draw one, you and up to three of your friends will have the entire 590 acres to yourselves. If you’d like to apply for any of these great hunts, the rst thing you’ll need to do is get a 2013-2014 Special-Opportunity Fall Hunt Worksheet. It is available at MyFWC. com/Hunting by clicking “Limited Entry/ Quota Hunts” then “Special-Opportunity Fall Hunts” toward the bottom of the page. You can submit your completed application at License.MyFWC.com or at any county tax collector’s of ce or license agent. The application period runs through June 2. These coveted permits are issued by random drawing, and you may apply for as many hunts and dates as you like to increase your chances of being selected. You must include a $5 nonrefundable fee for each hunt application, although hunters are limited to being drawn for one permit per hunt. If you’re selected in the random drawing, you have until the deadline speci ed to pay the cost of the selected hunt. You can do this online at License.MyFWC.com or at any license agent or tax collector’s of ce. If not, you forfeit it, and it’ll go to the next applicant selected in the random drawing.

Traumatic brain injury can range from a mild concussion to coma. The football player who ‘gets his bell rung’, the shaken baby, the child who falls off a swing and gets ‘knocked out’ and the rough stock (or rollercoaster) rider who complains of a bad headache and nausea after his ride all have one thing in common. They have suffered a traumatic brain injury or concussion. A concussion is essentially a brain bruise caused when the brain is thrown violently against the inside of the skull. It cannot be diagnosed by x-ray or any other type of imaging because it is a bruise without any structural changes. It must be diagnosed by history and symptoms alone. The reason imaging such as x -rays, CT scans or MRI is done after a head injury is to rule out such life threatening complications as brain swelling or bleeding. Common symptoms of a concussion include2:  Vacant stare (befuddled facial expression);  Delayed verbal and motor responses (slow to answer questions or follow instructions);  Confusion and inability to focus attention (easily distracted and unable to follow through with normal activities);  Disorientation (walking in the wrong direction; unaware of time, date and place);  Slurred or incoherent speech (making disjointed or incomprehensible statements);  Gross observable incoordination (stumbling, inability to walk tandem/straight line);  Emotions out of proportion to circumstances (distraught, crying for no apparent reason);  Memory de cits (asking the same question that has already been answered, or inability to memorize and recall 3 of 3 words or objects in 5 minutes);  Any period of loss of consciousness (paralytic coma, unresponsiveness to arousal). More boys than girls suffer traumatic brain injury. Football is the number one cause of concussion in boys and soccer is the number one cause in girls. This is a combination of the numbers of children playing each sport and the physicality of the sport. Thirty-four percent of bull riders have suffered one or more concussions. According to the Justin Sports Medicine Program 15-year PRCA Study of Rodeo Injuries, concussion is the most frequent major injury in the rodeo arena, accounting for 38 percent of all injuries3. While a single, mild concussion doesn’t cause any lasting damage as long as there is suf cient and proper recovery time, repeated mild concussions have been linked with permanent damage. This damage can range from emotional problems to learning dif culties to diseases such as Parkinson’s. Second Hit Syndrome occurs when someone who has suffered a concussion returns to activity too soon, and suffers a second concussion which causes death or permanent, debilitating brain damage. Many coaches and parents don’t realize the seriousness of concussions and Second Hit Syndrome. An athlete who has suffered a possible concussion should not be allowed to return to the game without being properly assessed. Management of concussion requires brain rest for at least one week after all symptoms have disappeared. If there was a loss of consciousness when the concussion occurred, brain rest is required for 2 weeks to 1 month or longer if multiple concussions have been sustained. Brain rest requires plenty of sleep on a regular schedule, no physical activity more strenuous than walking, light school work and limited stimuli. Signs that suggest the need for immediate medical attention after a head injury include1:  Marked change in personality – often with confusion and irritability;  Worsening headache, especially if associated with nausea or vomiting;  Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms or legs, changes in breathing pattern, or seizure;  Eye and vision changes (double vision, blurred vision, unequal sized pupils). These signs may occur immediately after a head injury or up to days later. If they occur, no matter how long after the injury, seek immediate medical attention in an ER. Y oung athletes may suffer Traumatic Brain Injury

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Phil Jones and Eddie Neal shared the Most Valuable Player Award while Sid Whitaker took home the Brahman Award from the annual Okeechobee High School boys basketball banquet held April 25 at Pogey’s Restaurant. Okeechobee nished (8-17) this year but had a very tough schedule with 12 games against teams that made the regional tournament this year including Martin County, Port St. Lucie and Lake Worth. Martin County won districts and made it to the State Final Four. Coach Shawn Hays said the team obviously would have liked to have done better but they still worked hard, pulled out a couple wins and upsets and had something to build on for next year. “We will still have a tough district next y ear and those other teams aren’t sitting at home relaxing. They are working to get better,” he told the Okeechobee News. The district will include South Fork, Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce Westwood, Okeechobee, and Jensen Beach next year. Four seniors were honored at the Banquet. Brendon Jonassaint won a leadership award, Gavin Liford a toughness award, J ose Loredo a hustle award, and Whitaker w on the Brahman Award. Hays said all four w ere great kids who worked hard and were dedicated to the team. Hays said the kids must work harder in the w eight room, and also improve their shooting skills in the off season. Another area to focus on will be quickness and speed. “I felt we got pushed around a little bit on the court this year. If we work hard this summer that won’t happen again next year,” he explained. The team will return ve players which include Neal, Sylvester Butler, Roshell Thomas and Tyrell Taylor. There are prospects on the junior varsity team and also a strong freshman class coming that includes standouts A ntawyn Fludd and Juan’Yae Ford. Neal, who averaged 10.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, said he will take on the role of leader next year and expects to excel. “I felt I could have done more this year but the MVP Award is good to win. I’m happy I got the award.” Despite some interest from college football coaches, Neal said he will return to the court next year. He said he has loved basketball since he was three years old and wants to continue playing. “We stood up to most of our opponents and were right there this year. I know the coach will give us the keys to the car one day and we’ll do what it takes to win a district championship.” Liford will attend Indian River State College and is undecided on his course of study. He said he felt real good about the season and the effort he put in. “I always try to play my hardest on rebounds and keeping possession. We put in a lot of time in practice and I have a lot of great memories,” he added. Whitaker said he felt great about winning the Brahman Award and that he felt he did a good job this year. He said the returning players must continue to work hard and not worry about mistakes in the past, just play for the future. He intends to enroll at the University of Central Florida and study to become a surgical tech. Jonassaint said he appreciated the leadership award. He was the second leading rebounder and third leading scorer on the team this year. At 6’0” and 160 pounds, he was undersized as he played mostly at power forward by necessity. He admitted he enjoyed the physicality of the position. “I really enjoyed it, most of the time I played guys 6’3” and 200 pounds. I think the team will be really good next year and I will root for them and hope to watch them.” Jonassaint will enroll at the University of Florida and study biology and medicine. Loredo earned a hustle award for his play this year. He worked over the summer with Assistant Coach Mariano Medrano to improve his skills. He said the year was de nitely memorable. “I always went out and gave everything I had. You never know if it’s the last game you’ll play, so play hard,” he said. Jose intends to enroll at Valencia Community College and wants to earn a Master’s Degree in Psychology. Phil Jones said a second Most Valuable Player Award was a great honor but he thanked his teammates for all their help. He said no matter how frustrating the season got, the team still stuck together. “I couldn’t believe we kept up with the teams we played but we did it all together,” he explained. Jones said the team had a lot of talent and if they put it all together can really be scary in the next few years. He is weighing offers to play college basketball from out of state schools, a school in Illinois, and Miami Dade Community College. Junior Varsity Coach Jason Egli honored his players with letters. Tyrone Joseph, Angel Garcia, Chris Epps, Fred Bradley, Chase Asmussen, Tim Shablom, Ray Collins, Dustin Herrin, Matt Coleman, Chris Samuels, Francisco Compton, and Christian Smith all were honored at the banquet. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Okeechobee News May 3, 2013 Boys basketball team honored at awards banquet Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyPhil Jones accepts the Team MVP Award from Coach Shawn Hays.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Rebekah Bryan was named to the AllConference squad for v olleyball at Indian River State College despite a serious hip and back injury that would have kept most players on the sidelines. The 2012 Okeechobee High School graduate fell down a ight of stairs when she was in high school but never had the injury treated properly and it healed incorrectly and she developed tendonitis. Bryan was going to red shirt and try to heal up this year but after three weeks realized that even slowed by an injury she could be one of the best players in the conference, so she threw caution to the wind and got back on the court. She went on to play the entire season and was among the team leaders in the most important statistical categories. She also earned top academic marks this year at IRSC. "I stayed focused and set high goals for myself this year. I studied late at night on the bus and worked real hard," she explained. "I just have a passion for volleyball. Once the match started and my adrenaline would get going, I'd forget about all the pain." Bryan is still in therapy for the injury. She got daily treatment from trainers and relied heavily on ice, ibuprofen, and rest this year to keep playing. She took cortisone pills that also helped with the pain and soreness. She has decided to give up her remaining three years of college eligibility and get healthy. "College volleyball is almost like a different sport. It's the same ball and the same net but they play at such a higher level. It is something I'll never forget and it was a great experience," she added. Bryan's two sisters also play volleyball. Katie Bryan earned a scholarship at Polk Community College but suffered a spinal injury in a horse accident and didn't play in college. Her younger sister Rachel still has high hopes for a college career and will enter the 8th grade this fall. Bryan said the IRSC campus is very supportive of volleyball matches and provided a great environment for home games. She said she was surprised to earn a team award at the end of the season for academics and athletic achievement. "I was really honored. I wasn't expecting an award because they usually go to the sophomores. I was really astonished and felt very honored," she added. Bryan has played volleyball since the fth grade. She said she is interested in coaching now and would like to share her passion for the sport with children. She said she won't have second thoughts about what might have been had she continued to play since she likely could have earned a scholarship offer from a four year university. "God has a plan for everything. I have an injury and I have to listen to my body," she added.
