By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Three hundred and thirty seniors will receive diplomas at the annual Okeechobee High School graduation to be held Thursday night at 8 p.m. at the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center. Gates will open at 7 p.m. and a huge turnout is expected. Each graduating senior received 10 tickets. OHS principal Toni Wiersma described graduation as the greatest night the school and these seniors have. “They have accomplished great things in 13 years of school and this is their big night. This is a very special class. They will be remembered as a class that thinks of others above themselves,” she said. The class, spearheaded by Emily Murrow, started the Back Pack for Kids program. They collected donated food items and handed them out to local children in need on weekends. “This group has really come together as a class. They are committed and caring, and they support the community,” she added. Academically this is a strong class, Mrs. Wiersma said. Six class members completed four or more advanced placement courses plus six or more dual enrollment courses. Thirty-one students took six or more dual enrollment classes. Nineteen students were in the AVID program or Advancement via individual determination, and were able to secure as many as 25 college credits. Some of these students are within one semester or already earning an AA degree from college. “We were real excited about the number of students in advanced placement and dual enrollment classes this year,” Mrs. Wiersma added. The percentage of graduates who will attend college continues to increase this year. All 19 kids in the AVID program were accepted by a post-secondary institution. The community helped out a lot in that effort as 161 students received scholarships this year. That compared to 131 last year. The local community raised $703,125 for scholarships and 143 students received local scholarships. There were also 13 students who will serve the nation in the armed forces. “The support for scholarships was phenomenal this year,” Mrs. Wiersma said. “We can’t thank the community enough. Over half of the class will receive some sort of assistance,” she added. The Class President and Class Valedictorian this year is Sarah Davis. Jennifer Szentmartoni is the Class Salutatorian. “We’re going to miss this class. They have shown and demonstrated leadership and great sportsmanship. This was a very caring class,” Mrs. Wiersma added. After graduation, the graduates are encouraged to attend the all-night graduation party. This year it will be held at the KOA Convention Center. Class sponsors Samantha Hord and Jennifer Szentmartoni were praised for hours of volunteer work to help organize this event. The Okeechobee Kiwanis and Rotary Club were also instrumental in organizing the event. Since the event started 25 years ago there have been no alcohol related fatalities of a graduating senior in Okeechobee on graduation night, a record the organizers are very proud of. The celebration will have different events this year including three types of card games, a corn hole tournament, three sets of large group games, and more opportunities for students to win prizes. Over $18,000 worth of prizes will be handed out this year. The y include computers, cameras, various electronic devices, refrigerators, microwaves, televisions and many gift cards for gas, food and other needs common for college students. Traditionally over 80 percent of the graduation class attends the party. The Kiwanis Club will provide a pancake breakfast. Parking will be provided in an open eld near the KOA. Ms. Hord said they encourage all parents to send their graduates to the graduation celebration. She pointed out with a Chinese auction and other games, like Fear Factor, Jeopardy, and relay races, the students will have more opportunity to win prizes. There will be two, full-year scholarships given out by Indian River State College to lucky students. The Okeechobee Children Services Council also provided a grant to help fund the graduation celebration. The recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now, as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure rst responders know w ho to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The department offers emergency contact information registration online at https://services. hsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license of ces (to include driver license ofces operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identi cation card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement of cers in the event of an emergency. “Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind,” said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. “We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police.” “The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it,” said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. “Outdated information can signi cantly delay our efforts to provide quick noti cation to families and loved ones.” The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the ef cient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

South Florida’s wet season started with a punch as several deluges bolstered the usual rainy season afternoon storms — which began about May 18 — to bring May’s rainfall total in well above average. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has begun typical rainy season operations, including operating canals to maximize room for stormwater runoff. “As is typical in the wet season, we are responding to rainfall yet always preparing the system for the next event,” said Susan Sylvester, Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “South Floridians know that there is a potential for localized ooding in areas such as roads and parking lots during prolonged or intense rainfall.” With a forecast of signi cant rainfall this week, canals in strategic locations have already been lowered to create capacity for expected stormwater runoff. The district is also coordinating with local drainage authorities, whose canal systems move water into the regional district system. All 16 counties in the district received above-average rainfall in May, with 6.31 inches district-wide, representing 164 percent of average, or 2.46 inches above average. Florida’s east coast received the heaviest deluges, with eastern Palm Beach County receiving the largest amount of May rain in the district. Records show the county experienced its wettest May since 1939, with 11.06 inches accounting for 237 percent of average rainfall, or 6.40 inches above average. Eastern Broward County was the second wettest in South Florida for the month, receiving 10.03 inches, representing 198 percent of average, or 4.96 inches above average. Martin and St. Lucie counties received 7.36 inches of rain, representing 197 percent of average, or 3.63 inches above average. Eastern Miami-Dade County received 9.59 inches of rain, representing 193 percent of average, or 4.62 inches above average. Despite the large rainfall totals, none of these counties ranked in the top ve wettest Mays in their respective histories, according to district records. The Southwest Coast experienced 4.69 inches of rain, representing 131 percent of average, or 1.11 inches above average. Water levels across the region are at average or slightly above average levels for this time of year. This means South Florida’s water supply is well positioned for any possible short-term dry periods. Lake Okeechobee stood at 13.36 feet NGVD Tuesday. This is 0.24 feet higher than its historic average for this time of year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the lake level with scienti c and other input from stakeholders including the District, has been making regulatory releases. On average, South Florida’s wet season begins around May 20 and ends around October 13, lasting for about 21 weeks. Typically, about two-thirds of annual rains fall during the wet season, or approximatel y 35 inches out of 52 inches. Since 1932, virtually all wet seasons have produced 2 to 4 feet of rainfall. June is usually South Florida’s wettest month. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 BOGO For It!Go “nd Buy One Get One Free savings all over the store.

Rights Let me get this straight. Liberals are s aying having a universal background check and registering all guns is not an infringement on someone’s rights, but asking someone to prove they’re a U.S. citizen and show an ID to vote is? W elfare Welfare is not a career opportunity, unless you’re an illegal immigrant, mother of s even on food stamps, and collecting social s ecurity, of all things, in the great state of F lorida. Fox News’ Steve Harrigan reported on the completely out-of-control food stamp program in Florida. Illegal immigrant Marita Nelson, 50, is a single mother of seven who c ollects $240 in food stamps, receives child s upport, and “government funded housing, medication and $700 a month in social security.” And she has been getting assistance for t he last 20 years. Twenty years. Now Nelson w ants others in her situation to know they c an get the same help. How she possibly c ollects Social Security isn’t explained, but Harrigan reported on Florida’s federal assist ance recruiters who sign people, “clients,” up for “multiple federal aid programs at the s ame time.”  Illegal immigrant ... KEY WORDS ... and yet those of us who have paid into the s ystem for YEARS are at the mercy of the powers to be. My parents raised eight kids w ithout any government assistance at all. So did many other families.Summer Solstice Well the folks south of the lake are b uzzing about the Lake Okeechobee Summer Solstice festival planned at the Pahokee Marina. According to the article, the minist ers are none too happy about this, but from t he social media comments it sounds like most people think they should just leave the pagans alone as their religion is just as prot ected by the Constitution as any other.  As a former resident of Pahokee I would have to think that anything that came into the city would probably have to be an improvement. Pahokee could be the gem of the Glades, but it isn’t. I moved out of town after the second time my house was broken into. Pahokee is a town where people dump their unwanted furniture into the canals and then complain about the lack of drainage. What’s wrong with belly dancing anyway?  The ministers who were protesting should do a little research. Pagans are no threat to anyone. The motto is “harm none.” They should worry more about the gang violence and drugs that plague that area. And if they object to a little drumming and dancing, they don’t have to see or hear it. Just stay home.  It’s sad when “Freedom of Religion” is interpreted as “Freedom of my religion, as long as it’s Christian because everything else is suspicious!”  Whatever happened to freedom of religion? I am a believer in Christ, but do not believe that I have the right to discriminate against others for religious reasons. Weren’t we instructed to love one another?Drive safely Don’t drink and drive. The problem with drinking and driving is … The MOURNING after! You can hand over your keys or your life. Make the right choice.  The driver is safer when the roads are dry; the roads are safer when the driver is dry.  In less than a week we have seen two people die in single vehicle accidents in Okeechobee County. In both cases, the vehicles went off the roadway and ran into utility poles. This is so tragic and senseless. Please be safe. If you have been drinking, are sleepy or have any medical issues that leave you less than 100 percent attentive, don’t drive. Ask someone for a ride or just stay where you are. Summer break is upon us. Parents, make sure your teenagers know that if they are somewhere and do not have a safe, sober ride home that you will come and get them, no questions asked. Better to lose a little sleep driving somewhere to pick up your child than to risk losing a child to an auto accident. Make that same deal with your older family members too. Don’t let anyone you love drink and drive or ride with someone who has been drinking or is in any way incapacitated. Anatomy of a sh killBy John Cimbaro and Bob WattendorfFWCRecently, north Florida anglers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) shery biologists were heartbroken to see the white bellies of numerous sh oating in Lake Victor. Lake Victor is a popular, 130-acre FWC-managed impoundment in Holmes County. Since the impoundment was constructed, the FWC has stocked sh, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created sh attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality shing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? Unfortunately, it seems like a case of nature taking its course and, yes, it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls ushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) sh kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all of the sh, and when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed numerous surviving sh. This type of sh kill is pretty much a natural occurrence. They are especially prevalent in summer, when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has approximately 7 to 9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most sh. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many sh start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of sh are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bow n or gar, but most of our freshwater sun shes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to sh using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents rst contacted the FW C about the sh kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying sh oating. Fisheries biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with peagreen water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, which are anothe r insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers ushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When alga e die, they further increase th e bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily fo r several weeks, documenting the number o f dead sh and concluded that few adult gam e sh survived. However, they observed som e schools of ngerling bass and bream from th e spring spawn and a few bass on beds. “We know there was over 19 inches of rain in the area from January to April, and the lak e got its share of rain and runoff,” said Chris Paxton, the FWC’s freshwater sheries administrator for northwest Florida. He said th e FWC was in constant contact with the Florid a Department of Health and the Department o f Environmental Protection and that FWC staf f accompanied investigators from the Department of Agriculture to inspect the lake during the sh kill. There was no visual evidence o f chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead sh. “This is something all of us, including th e residents around the lake and our own sheries management staff, wish never happened but in time the lake will recover,” Paxton said. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FW C will restock the lake with ngerling sport sh. To learn more about sh kills and what you can do to help prevent them, visit MyFWC. com/Contact.

Let us know by emailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.Community Service Through Journalism 5 Okeechobee News June 5, 2013 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A DUI checkpoint held last weekend kept law enforcement personnel busy as they checked over 500 vehicles from 10 p.m. Saturday night, June 1, until 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Statistics released by the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO) indicated that a total of 509 vehicles passed through the checkpoint on S.R. 70 East. The checkpoint was manned by the Okeechobee City Police Department, the Florida Highway Patrol and the OCSO. According to those statistics: 30 traf c citations were issued; one motorist was charged with driving under the in uence; nine criminal citations were issued; and, 36 warnings were given. A traf c citation would include such violations as faulty equipment and improper child restraints. Criminal citations were issued for such misdemeanors as possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana under 20 grams and driving while license suspended. 509 vehicles pass through checkpoint coaches really took the game seriously. “When we go against each other, it’s a w hole different atmosphere and the kids kind of fed off of us,” Branham said. “We pushed the kids all week and when the lights came on tonight, the kids took the mentality this isn’t just a joke, we’re out here to compete.” Branham said he loved to watch the intensity and the execution of his team. He joked he has never won a Purple-White game in 11 seasons as a head coach and an assistant. EJ Neal had a strong game for the White team. He rushed for 27 yards on seven carries and a touchdown. Neal completed twoofve passes for 21 yards. Khalil Smith had 35 yards rushing and a 5-yard pass reception. Tyrone Joseph had 34 yards rushing on seven carries. G.W. Jarriel had a 16-yard reception. Smith said the offensive line blocked well and the White team was able to move the ball consistently. “I think all of the kids did great. The defense played great and the line blocked very well. I feel pretty good about my team. I feel we’ll have a positive season.” Dee Shockley threw an unlucky interception for the Purple squad. He hit Tyrell Taylor in the hands at the goal line in the fourth quarter but the pass was de ected into the hands of a White team defender. Shockley said he felt the team did great and that the young players picked up the playbook and the speed of the game well,. “I still have a lot of work to do for the off season. It was a very physical game and it was very intense. I think everybody played their best,” he said. Shockley said he plans to work hard in off season camps and the 7-on-7 leagues to continue to improve his skills and his knowledge of the offense. Minondo had 90 yards on 10 carries, which included a 42-yard run in the third quarter to set up a Purple touchdown. He scored on a 13-yard run, one play after his big play. Tyrell Taylor had a 12-yard reception and Daniel Nunez rushed for 11 yards on four carries for the White squad. Branham said he felt the quarterback job was unsettled entering the game. He praised Shockley for the way he called plays and indicated Shockley had the inside track for the starting job. Neal still is in the mix and will be a key playmaker for the team if not the starting quarterback. He also emphasized Minondo will need to get in better condition because he can’t continue to cramp and miss key playing time. Branham also praised the defense for their aggressiveness and predicted the team will be strong on that side of the ball next fall. “We must get better in the passing game. We put in a lot of new sets and emphasized the run game during the spring. I really saw some positive and exciting things out there. Now we go into the summer and want to create a bond for the team,” he added. Branham also would like a good turnout for summer weightlifting and also plans to compete in 7-on-7 passing tournaments. Two camps are also scheduled for the team. “I was very afraid about our lack of experience, but the kids showed up and I think we’ll be able to pick out some guys for the defense that can get some positive results on the eld,” he added.Game notesJacob Emmick de ected a pass for the Purple defense. Rico Garza had a sack for the Purple squad. Bobby Joe Garza had a sack for the Purple defense. Cody Walker and Kain Sarros both had a tackle for loss for the Purple team. The Brahmans were 3-for-3 on conversions. There were few penalty ags, and just one turnover. FOOTBALLContinued From Page 1 FHP Trooper Vernon D.

Trooper Slater indicated the crash is still under investigation. ACCIDENTContinued From Page 1 He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Thomas was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond of $20,500. J ail records Tuesday, June 4, indicated that he had been released on bond. An arrest report by a task force detective stated that during a search of the home 36.2 grams of suspected marijuana were found in a plastic bag in the tank of the toilet. That substance was eld tested and the test indicated a positive result for the presence of marijuana. Besides the suspected pot, smaller plastic baggies were also found in the tank of the toilet. The smaller baggies, added the report, are commonly used in the packaging and sale of marijuana. According to the report detectives also found U.S. currency in a safe as well as in a dresser. When added together, a total of $8,170 in cash was found and seized. The arrest report goes on to state that two sets of digital scales were found in the small safe, and another set of digital scales was found in the top drawer of a nightstand in the master bedroom. A woman and three small children, ranging in age from 18 months to 10 years, were also in the home at the time. No other arrests were made. Prior to the detectives entering the home, members of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce Special Response Team entered the home where they located everyone in the home and made sure task force detectives could safely enter the home and execute the warrant.

Jennifer Platt, 36, N.W. Sixth St., Okeechobee, was arrested Sunday, J une 2, on charges of obtaining merchandise/money with false receipt, retail theft (three counts), tampering with evidence, resisting a law enforcement of cer without violence, possession of drug paraphernalia, giving false information to obtain a refund and resisting a merchant. She was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail on $12,000 bond. The spree' apparently began Saturday, J une 1, when a bottle of gas treatment, a can of tire sealant and a quart of oil were stolen from a convenience store on U.S. 98 N., stated an arrest report by Deputy Leland Schoonmaker of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO). The deputy's report pointed out that store surveillance captured a woman taking the items and putting them in a handbag. She then went to the cash register, pulled the items out of the bag and asked the clerk for a refund of $25.97, stated the deputy. The woman allegedly told the clerk she bought the items but no longer needed them. After making the refund, the clerk became suspicious and viewed the surveillance tape which supposedly showed the woman taking the items and putting them in her bag. The next day OCSO Deputy Sergeant Shannon Peterson returned to that same store around 2:20 p.m. to handle a shoplifting complaint. Sgt. Peterson stated that a woman had entered the store and took two quarts of motor oil, one quart of synthetic motor oil and one can of Big Puncture Tire Seal. Those items had a retail value of $40.09, he added. According to Sgt. Peterson's report, store surveillance video showed a woman entering the store and taking the items. His report went on to indicate that she left the area riding an orange and purple bicycle. Then, at 5:59 p.m. on Sunday, Of cer Chad Troutman of the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD) was called to Walmart to handle a shoplifting complaint. Store surveillance there depicted a woman entering the store with several receipts in her hand. She then went through the store, took items off the shelves that matched the items on the receipts and took those items to customer service where she used the receipts to get a cash refund of $17.91, stated the of cer's report. That woman, stated the of cer, was identi ed as Jennifer Platt. Store loss prevention personnel tried to stop Platt but she started running on foot and got away. Store personnel did, however, manage to grab Platt's backpack when she dropped it. Of cer Troutman said he searched that backpack and found an insulin syringe that contained a clear residue, along with two spoons that had a white residue. The residue on the spoon was eld tested and that test reportedly indicated a positive result for the presence of opiates. Platt was later found hiding in some bushes at S.W. 23rd Street and S.W. Third Ave., stated the of cer. He went on to state that he put Platt in his patrol unit and was taking her back to Walmart when she began to throw 12 pieces o f paper out of a rear window he had opened due to the heat in the car. He retrieved those papers that turned out to be old receipts from Walmart, stated his report. Sgt. Peterson stated in his report that when Platt was captured a can of Big Puncture Tire Seal and a can of oil, similar to those taken from the convenience store, were found in her backpack by Of cer Troutman. The OCPD of cer pointed out in his report that the syringe and spoons will be sent to the Indian River Crime Lab in Fort Pierce for analysis.

MurphyOkeechobee NewsJuan’Yae Ford scored three touchdowns and rushed for 82 yards on 10 carries to highlight the scrimmage between eighth graders at the Brahman Purple White game on Friday night. For many of the players it was their rst taste of competitive football. Thirty-three players suited up for the contest this year. Coach Chris Hall said the team has some good skilled players this year. He said with 20 days of practice, it’s hard to nd out what the team has but he thinks there is potential and that the team will be competitive in the fall. “I think they’re a good group of kids. They are very coachable and anxious to learn. If they stay on track and get in the weight room over the summer and stay apart of the program, I see some good things for them down the road,” he explained. Kevin Hawthorne had 35 yards on two carries -including a 29-yard touchdown jaunt. Demetrius Clark caught a 23-yard pass. Drayton Billie had a 12-yard touchdown run. Ronnie Knowles rushed for 36 yards on two carries. Antawyn Fludd had an 18-yard reception. Leaders on the defense included Coby Grif s, J ohn Waggle, Dilmer Larowe, and Billie. Joseph Benjamin had three tackles which included two sacks. Caleb Smith had a pass de ection for the defense. Hall said they will continue to work on being aggressive and learning skills. He said over half of the squad had never played football before in their life and that showed at times. “Some of the kids have played for a while and they were difference makers tonight. I feel you’re only as good as your weakest link and we want to strengthen everyone,” he added. Varsity coach Chris Branham told the group afterward that some of them might have the ability to play at the varsity level as freshman. He said football is not just 30 days in May or practice in August, but a year-round commitment. “For some of you there is an opportunity to play varsity but you have to be committed, to your grades and to conditioning,” he said. “The competition level will increase. The future starts now.” Ford said he felt the team worked hard this spring and that he felt comfortable at quarterback, a position he has never played before. “I will play wherever they want me to play but you can expect big plays out of me if I play quarterback. I have got to learn everything I can. To go far, you have to be coachable,” he added. Offensive lineman James Thomas was praised by the coaching staff for his intensity and effort. He did a good job opening holes for the run game. “It was pretty hard in the trenches. I pushed one guy through the end zone on a play,” he added. Thomas said the kids need to turnout in the weight room this summer so they can play at the high school. He predicted the team will be strong in the fall. “We have some pretty good athletes this year. We just have to work hard in the offseason,” he added.

From the Fla. Depart. of HealthDid you know modest amounts of ultrav iolet (UV) exposure, by way of sunlight, are actually a part of good health? Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to UVB (short UV rays that come from the sun) in small amounts. Vitamin D helps regulate calcium levels in the blood and is needed for bone and musculoskeletal health. UV radiation has also been used by trained medical professionals to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis. Too much UV exposure, including exposure via indoor tanning, can cause cancer. The World Health Organization recommends 5-15 minutes of casual sun exposure twice a week. More UV exposure than that can have adverse health effects. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), indoor tanning methods such as using a booth, bed or lamp can cause cancers including skin cancers (melanomas) and cancers of the eye. QUESTION: What is the difference between UVA rays and UVB rays? ANSWER: According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services Food and Drug Administration, “UVB rays penetrate the top layers of skin. UVB rays are not as prevalent as UVA rays, but are most responsible for tanning and sunburns. UVA rays penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and are often associated with allergic reactions such as a rash.” Short-wavelength UVB is a known carcinogen—an agent that causes cancer, premature skin aging, and wrinkling. Researchers are nding that longer-wavelength UVA rays also contribute to cancer. QUESTION: What UV exposure do you get from indoor tanning? ANSWER: Tanning beds can emit both UV rays but primarily UVA. The high-pressure sunlamps used in tanning salons emit doses of UVA as much as 12 times that of the sun. QUESTION: Does Florida require any cancer-related warning information about UV exposure to be available at tanning facilities? ANSWER: Yes. Warning signs must be posted in conspicuous places in the tanning facility and similar warning signs must be imprinted on each tanning device used at the salon. The sign must state the following warning and instructions: DANGER, ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION Follow these instructions:  Avoid frequent or lengthy exposure. As with natural sunlight, exposure can cause eye and skin injury or allergic reactions. Repeated exposure can cause chronic sun damage characterized by wrinkling, dryness, fragility and bruising of the skin or skin cancer.  Wear protective eyewear. FAILURE TO USE PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR CAN RESULT IN SEVERE BURNS OR LONG-TERM INJURY TO THE EYES.  Ultraviolet radiation from sunlamps will aggravate the effects of the sun. Therefore, do not sunbathe before or after exposure to ultraviolet radiation.  Using medications or cosmetics can increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation. Consult a physician before using a sunlamp if you are using medications, have a history of skin problems, or believe you are especially sensitive to sunlight. Women who are pregnant or on birth control that use this product can develop discolored skin. IF YOU DO NOT TAN IN THE SUN YOU WILL NOT TAN BY USING THIS DEVICE. Florida’s tanning facility operational requirements are found in Chapter 64E-17, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.)(41 K PDF) and 381.89, Florida Statutes (F.S.). More information can also be found at http:/ / www.doh.state. .us/environment/community/tanning/pdfs/IndoorTan.pdf. QUESTION: Is there any correlation between a person’s age and their risk of cancer from tanning? ANSWER: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site, people who begin tanning before they’re 35 have a 75 percent higher risk of melanoma. Furthermore, the World Health Organization writes, “The United States Department of Health and Human Services has classi ed exposure to sunlamps or sunbeds as ‘known to be carcinogenic to humans’ and states that the longer the exposure, the greater the risk, especially to people exposed before the age of 30 years.” 20 Okeechobee News June 5, 2013 By Charles M.

We Treat Kids Too! By Dr. Ramesh Kumar Big Lake Cancer CenterHow many cancer patients would jump up and consider a treatment option that is proven to be highly effective, does not need surgery, painless, completed in 5 days or less, without signi“ cant side effects, w hile continuing to maintain their full level of activity and function? Radio surgery is a technique that utilizes specialized machines that allow large amounts of radiation to be delivered with sub millimeter accuracy thereby killing the cancers without damaging surrounding normal tissues. 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 What is Cyberknife Radiation Therapy? Submitted Photo/ Big Lake Cancer Center Cyberknife: Cutting edge technology at work for our patients in Okeechobee.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 that was 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! If you or someone you know has any form of cancer, please call us so we can explore the possibility of treating it with this cutting edge technology.

By Tony YoungFWC Every hunter knows you have a better chance of catching a monster buck off-guard during the rst part of hunting season. That's w hy many of us enjoy hunting the archery and muzzleloading gun seasonsand why w e can't miss opening weekend of the general gun season. If you hunt public land, you should know that many of Florida's wildlife management areas (WMAs) require a quota permit to hunt during archery, muzzleloading gun and all or part of the general gun season. A quota is the maximum number of hunters allowed on a particular WMA. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Quota Hunt Program prev ents overcrowding on such areas and prov ides quality hunts. Quotas also help control game harvests. The FWC sets quotas based on an area's size, habitat, game populations and regulations. There are several types of quota permits, and most are issued by random drawing. The rst-phase application period for archery, muzzleloading gun, general gun, youth, family, track vehicle (a swamp buggy with tank treads), airboat and mobility-impaired quota hunt permits runs June 1-30, so you've got all month to get 'em in. You may submit one application for each of the hunt types, and there is no fee to apply. One thing to remember though: Unless exempt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit (or a license that includes one) when applying for a quota permit, or the system won't accept your application. Two of these quota hunts are unique to south Florida. An airboat quota permit is required for anyone wishing to hunt out of an airboat on Everglades and Francis S. Taylor WMA in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. But, if you'd rather hunt off a track vehicle there, or on Rotenberger or Holey Land WMAs in Palm Beach County, you'll need a track vehicle quota permit. The FWC offers youth deer hunts on Camp Blanding WMA in Clay County and on Andrews WMA in Levy County. If you have children between the ages of 8 and 15, and you want them to have a chance to experience one of these great hunts, apply for a youth quota hunt permit, because only 160 kids will get to participate. During these hunts, only the youngsters may hunt, and they and their adult supervisors are the only people allowed on the area. To increase hunting opportunities for youths, youngsters may accompany an adult quota permit holder on any WMAeven if the area doesn't allow for exemptions. However, adults and youngsters must share a single bag limit. This coming season, there will be family quota hunts on 25 WMAs. You must have a family quota hunt permit to hunt these areas during speci c time periods. If you are drawn, the permit requires one adult to take one or two youths hunting. The adult may not hunt without taking along a kid. Hunters certi ed by the FWC as mobilityimpaired may apply for mobility-impaired quota permits. These permits allow exclusive access to general-gun hunts on nine of the state's better public hunting areas. If you want to get the jump on one of these hunts, make sure you have the correct quota hunt application worksheet so you can apply for one or more of these great opportunities. All application worksheets can be found at MyFWC.com/License by clicking on "Limited Entry/Quota Hunts" and then looking under "Quota Hunts." Once you've completed the application worksheet, you may use it to apply at License.MyFWC.com or submit it to any license agent or tax collector's of ce. The random drawings to decide who gets these quota hunt permits take place in July. To nd out if you've been selected, you can simply log in to your customer account at License.MyFWC.com to view your results. But there's been a change in how the preference system works. From now on, you can only return your unwanted quot a permit online, and you can't do so until Phase III begins and up until 10 days prior to your hunt date. To do this, log in to your customer account at License.MyFWC.com, and click the "Return" link next to the hunt you wish to turn in. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 REHAB THERAPY/ NURSING HOME We Love to We Love to Care!

Ifby Rudyard KiplingIf you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’ If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!Source: A Choice of Kiplings Verse (1943)Love, Dad Congratulations,JEB! 2 Okeechobee News § 2 0 1 3 G r a d u a t i o n K e e p s a k e 2013 Graduation Keepsake June 5, 2013 Courtesy Photo/ OHS Journalism Class of 2013 Of cers (left to right): L-R: Secretary Kyla Hargraves, Vice President Brendon Jonassaint, President Sarah Davis, Treasurer Samantha Rivero.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Three hundred and thirty seniors will receive diplomas at the annual Okeechobee High School graduation to be held Thursday night at 8 p.m. at the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center. Gates will open at 7 p.m. and a huge turnout is expected. Each graduating senior received 10 tickets. OHS principal Toni Wiersma described graduation as the greatest night the school and these seniors have. They have accomplished great things in 13 years of school and this is their big night. This is a very special class. They will be remembered as a class that thinks of others above themselves, she said. The class, spearheaded by Emily Murrow, started the Back Pack for Kids program. They collected donated food items and handed them out to local children in need on weekends. This group has really come together as a class. They are committed and caring, and they support the community, she added. Academically this is a strong class, Mrs. Wiersma said. Six class members completed four or more advanced placement courses plus six or more dual enrollment courses. Thirty-one students took six or more dual enrollment classes. Nineteen students were in the AVID program or Advancement via individual determination, and were able to secure as many as 25 college credits. Some of these students are within one semester or already earning an AA degree from college. We were real excited about the number of students in advanced placement and dual enrollment classes this year, Mrs. Wiersma added. The percentage of graduates who will attend college continues to increase this year. All 19 kids in the AVID program were accepted by a post-secondary institution. The community helped out a lot in that effort as 161 students received scholarships this year. That compared to 131 last year. The local community raised $703,125 for scholarships and 143 students received local scholarships. There were also 13 students who will serve the nation in the armed forces. The support for scholarships was phenomenal this year, Mrs. Wiersma said. We cant thank the community enough. Over half of the class will receive some sort of assistance, she added. The Class President and Class Valedictorian this year is Sarah Davis. Jennifer Szentmartoni is the Class Salutatorian. Were going to miss this class. They have shown and demonstrated leadership and great sportsmanship. This was a very caring class, Mrs. Wiersma added. After graduation, the graduates are encouraged to attend the all-night graduation party. This year it will be held at the KOA Convention Center. Class sponsors Samantha Hord and Jennifer Szentmartoni were praised for hours of volunteer work to help organize this event. The Okeechobee Kiwanis and Rotary Club were also instrumental in organizing the event. Since the event started 25 years ago there have been no alcohol related fatalities of a graduating senior in Okeechobee on graduation night, a record the organizers are very proud of. The celebration will have different events this year including three types of card games, a corn hole tournament, three sets of large group games, and more opportunities for students to win prizes. Over $18,000 worth of prizes will be handed out this year. The y include computers, cameras, various electronic devices, refrigerators, microwaves, televisions and many gift cards for gas, food and other needs common for college students. Traditionally over 80 percent of the graduation class attends the party. The Kiwanis Club will provide a pancake breakfast. Parking will be provided in an open eld near the KOA. Ms. Hord said they encourage all parents to send their graduates to the graduation celebration. She pointed out with a Chinese auction and other games, like Fear Factor, Jeopardy, and relay races, the students will have more opportunity to win prizes. There will be two, full-year scholarships given out by Indian River State College to lucky students. The Okeechobee Children Services Council also provided a grant to help fund the graduation celebration. The recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now, as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure rst responders know w ho to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The department offers emergency contact information registration online at https://services. hsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license of ces (to include driver license ofces operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identi cation card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement of cers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can signi cantly delay our efforts to provide quick noti cation to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the ef cient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

South Floridas wet season started with a punch as several deluges bolstered the usual rainy season afternoon storms which began about May 18 to bring Mays rainfall total in well above average. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has begun typical rainy season operations, including operating canals to maximize room for stormwater runoff. As is typical in the wet season, we are responding to rainfall yet always preparing the system for the next event, said Susan Sylvester, Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. South Floridians know that there is a potential for localized ooding in areas such as roads and parking lots during prolonged or intense rainfall. With a forecast of signi cant rainfall this week, canals in strategic locations have already been lowered to create capacity for expected stormwater runoff. The district is also coordinating with local drainage authorities, whose canal systems move water into the regional district system. All 16 counties in the district received above-average rainfall in May, with 6.31 inches district-wide, representing 164 percent of average, or 2.46 inches above average. Floridas east coast received the heaviest deluges, with eastern Palm Beach County receiving the largest amount of May rain in the district. Records show the county experienced its wettest May since 1939, with 11.06 inches accounting for 237 percent of average rainfall, or 6.40 inches above average. Eastern Broward County was the second wettest in South Florida for the month, receiving 10.03 inches, representing 198 percent of average, or 4.96 inches above average. Martin and St. Lucie counties received 7.36 inches of rain, representing 197 percent of average, or 3.63 inches above average. Eastern Miami-Dade County received 9.59 inches of rain, representing 193 percent of average, or 4.62 inches above average. Despite the large rainfall totals, none of these counties ranked in the top ve wettest Mays in their respective histories, according to district records. The Southwest Coast experienced 4.69 inches of rain, representing 131 percent of average, or 1.11 inches above average. Water levels across the region are at average or slightly above average levels for this time of year. This means South Floridas water supply is well positioned for any possible short-term dry periods. Lake Okeechobee stood at 13.36 feet NGVD Tuesday. This is 0.24 feet higher than its historic average for this time of year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the lake level with scienti c and other input from stakeholders including the District, has been making regulatory releases. On average, South Floridas wet season begins around May 20 and ends around October 13, lasting for about 21 weeks. Typically, about two-thirds of annual rains fall during the wet season, or approximatel y 35 inches out of 52 inches. Since 1932, virtually all wet seasons have produced 2 to 4 feet of rainfall. June is usually South Floridas wettest month. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 BOGO For It!Go nd Buy One Get One Free savings all over the store.

Rights Let me get this straight. Liberals are s aying having a universal background check and registering all guns is not an infringement on someones rights, but asking someone to prove theyre a U.S. citizen and show an ID to vote is? W elfare Welfare is not a career opportunity, unless youre an illegal immigrant, mother of s even on food stamps, and collecting social s ecurity, of all things, in the great state of F lorida. Fox News Steve Harrigan reported on the completely out-of-control food stamp program in Florida. Illegal immigrant Marita Nelson, 50, is a single mother of seven who c ollects $240 in food stamps, receives child s upport, and government funded housing, medication and $700 a month in social security. And she has been getting assistance for t he last 20 years. Twenty years. Now Nelson w ants others in her situation to know they c an get the same help. How she possibly c ollects Social Security isnt explained, but Harrigan reported on Floridas federal assist ance recruiters who sign people, clients, up for multiple federal aid programs at the s ame time. Illegal immigrant ... KEY WORDS ... and yet those of us who have paid into the s ystem for YEARS are at the mercy of the powers to be. My parents raised eight kids w ithout any government assistance at all. So did many other families.Summer Solstice Well the folks south of the lake are b uzzing about the Lake Okeechobee Summer Solstice festival planned at the Pahokee Marina. According to the article, the minist ers are none too happy about this, but from t he social media comments it sounds like most people think they should just leave the pagans alone as their religion is just as prot ected by the Constitution as any other. As a former resident of Pahokee I would have to think that anything that came into the city would probably have to be an improvement. Pahokee could be the gem of the Glades, but it isnt. I moved out of town after the second time my house was broken into. Pahokee is a town where people dump their unwanted furniture into the canals and then complain about the lack of drainage. Whats wrong with belly dancing anyway? The ministers who were protesting should do a little research. Pagans are no threat to anyone. The motto is harm none. They should worry more about the gang violence and drugs that plague that area. And if they object to a little drumming and dancing, they dont have to see or hear it. Just stay home. Its sad when Freedom of Religion is interpreted as Freedom of my religion, as long as its Christian because everything else is suspicious! Whatever happened to freedom of religion? I am a believer in Christ, but do not believe that I have the right to discriminate against others for religious reasons. Werent we instructed to love one another?Drive safely Dont drink and drive. The problem with drinking and driving is The MOURNING after! You can hand over your keys or your life. Make the right choice. The driver is safer when the roads are dry; the roads are safer when the driver is dry. In less than a week we have seen two people die in single vehicle accidents in Okeechobee County. In both cases, the vehicles went off the roadway and ran into utility poles. This is so tragic and senseless. Please be safe. If you have been drinking, are sleepy or have any medical issues that leave you less than 100 percent attentive, dont drive. Ask someone for a ride or just stay where you are. Summer break is upon us. Parents, make sure your teenagers know that if they are somewhere and do not have a safe, sober ride home that you will come and get them, no questions asked. Better to lose a little sleep driving somewhere to pick up your child than to risk losing a child to an auto accident. Make that same deal with your older family members too. Dont let anyone you love drink and drive or ride with someone who has been drinking or is in any way incapacitated. Anatomy of a sh killBy John Cimbaro and Bob WattendorfFWCRecently, north Florida anglers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) shery biologists were heartbroken to see the white bellies of numerous sh oating in Lake Victor. Lake Victor is a popular, 130-acre FWC-managed impoundment in Holmes County. Since the impoundment was constructed, the FWC has stocked sh, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created sh attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality shing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? Unfortunately, it seems like a case of nature taking its course and, yes, it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls ushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) sh kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all of the sh, and when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed numerous surviving sh. This type of sh kill is pretty much a natural occurrence. They are especially prevalent in summer, when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has approximately 7 to 9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most sh. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many sh start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of sh are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bow n or gar, but most of our freshwater sun shes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to sh using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents rst contacted the FW C about the sh kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying sh oating. Fisheries biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with peagreen water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, which are anothe r insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers ushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When alga e die, they further increase th e bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily fo r several weeks, documenting the number o f dead sh and concluded that few adult gam e sh survived. However, they observed som e schools of ngerling bass and bream from th e spring spawn and a few bass on beds. We know there was over 19 inches of rain in the area from January to April, and the lak e got its share of rain and runoff, said Chris Paxton, the FWCs freshwater sheries administrator for northwest Florida. He said th e FWC was in constant contact with the Florid a Department of Health and the Department o f Environmental Protection and that FWC staf f accompanied investigators from the Department of Agriculture to inspect the lake during the sh kill. There was no visual evidence o f chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead sh. This is something all of us, including th e residents around the lake and our own sheries management staff, wish never happened but in time the lake will recover, Paxton said. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FW C will restock the lake with ngerling sport sh. To learn more about sh kills and what you can do to help prevent them, visit MyFWC. com/Contact.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 A legitimate role for the press is that of the publics watchdog. Most citizens cant spend the time necessary to personally observe their public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying out their public mission. But too many newspapers these days act more like mad dogs than watchdogs. Were proud to be different. We try to carry out our watchdog role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality. How are we doing? Let us know by emailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.Community Service Through Journalism 5 Okeechobee News June 5, 2013 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A DUI checkpoint held last weekend kept law enforcement personnel busy as they checked over 500 vehicles from 10 p.m. Saturday night, June 1, until 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Statistics released by the Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of ce (OCSO) indicated that a total of 509 vehicles passed through the checkpoint on S.R. 70 East. The checkpoint was manned by the Okeechobee City Police Department, the Florida Highway Patrol and the OCSO. According to those statistics: 30 traf c citations were issued; one motorist was charged with driving under the in uence; nine criminal citations were issued; and, 36 warnings were given. A traf c citation would include such violations as faulty equipment and improper child restraints. Criminal citations were issued for such misdemeanors as possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana under 20 grams and driving while license suspended. 509 vehicles pass through checkpoint coaches really took the game seriously. When we go against each other, its a w hole different atmosphere and the kids kind of fed off of us, Branham said. We pushed the kids all week and when the lights came on tonight, the kids took the mentality this isnt just a joke, were out here to compete. Branham said he loved to watch the intensity and the execution of his team. He joked he has never won a Purple-White game in 11 seasons as a head coach and an assistant. EJ Neal had a strong game for the White team. He rushed for 27 yards on seven carries and a touchdown. Neal completed twoofve passes for 21 yards. Khalil Smith had 35 yards rushing and a 5-yard pass reception. Tyrone Joseph had 34 yards rushing on seven carries. G.W. Jarriel had a 16-yard reception. Smith said the offensive line blocked well and the White team was able to move the ball consistently. I think all of the kids did great. The defense played great and the line blocked very well. I feel pretty good about my team. I feel well have a positive season. Dee Shockley threw an unlucky interception for the Purple squad. He hit Tyrell Taylor in the hands at the goal line in the fourth quarter but the pass was de ected into the hands of a White team defender. Shockley said he felt the team did great and that the young players picked up the playbook and the speed of the game well,. I still have a lot of work to do for the off season. It was a very physical game and it was very intense. I think everybody played their best, he said. Shockley said he plans to work hard in off season camps and the 7-on-7 leagues to continue to improve his skills and his knowledge of the offense. Minondo had 90 yards on 10 carries, which included a 42-yard run in the third quarter to set up a Purple touchdown. He scored on a 13-yard run, one play after his big play. Tyrell Taylor had a 12-yard reception and Daniel Nunez rushed for 11 yards on four carries for the White squad. Branham said he felt the quarterback job was unsettled entering the game. He praised Shockley for the way he called plays and indicated Shockley had the inside track for the starting job. Neal still is in the mix and will be a key playmaker for the team if not the starting quarterback. He also emphasized Minondo will need to get in better condition because he cant continue to cramp and miss key playing time. Branham also praised the defense for their aggressiveness and predicted the team will be strong on that side of the ball next fall. We must get better in the passing game. We put in a lot of new sets and emphasized the run game during the spring. I really saw some positive and exciting things out there. Now we go into the summer and want to create a bond for the team, he added. Branham also would like a good turnout for summer weightlifting and also plans to compete in 7-on-7 passing tournaments. Two camps are also scheduled for the team. I was very afraid about our lack of experience, but the kids showed up and I think well be able to pick out some guys for the defense that can get some positive results on the eld, he added.Game notesJacob Emmick de ected a pass for the Purple defense. Rico Garza had a sack for the Purple squad. Bobby Joe Garza had a sack for the Purple defense. Cody Walker and Kain Sarros both had a tackle for loss for the Purple team. The Brahmans were 3-for-3 on conversions. There were few penalty ags, and just one turnover. FOOTBALLContinued From Page 1 FHP Trooper Vernon D. Slater Jr. went on to state in the release that Mr. Bryner was thrown from the sports utility vehicle. The Tahoe sustained an estimated $10,000 in damage. Trooper Slater indicated the crash is still under investigation. ACCIDENTContinued From Page 1 He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Thomas was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond of $20,500. J ail records Tuesday, June 4, indicated that he had been released on bond. An arrest report by a task force detective stated that during a search of the home 36.2 grams of suspected marijuana were found in a plastic bag in the tank of the toilet. That substance was eld tested and the test indicated a positive result for the presence of marijuana. Besides the suspected pot, smaller plastic baggies were also found in the tank of the toilet. The smaller baggies, added the report, are commonly used in the packaging and sale of marijuana. According to the report detectives also found U.S. currency in a safe as well as in a dresser. When added together, a total of $8,170 in cash was found and seized. The arrest report goes on to state that two sets of digital scales were found in the small safe, and another set of digital scales was found in the top drawer of a nightstand in the master bedroom. A woman and three small children, ranging in age from 18 months to 10 years, were also in the home at the time. No other arrests were made. Prior to the detectives entering the home, members of the Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of ce Special Response Team entered the home where they located everyone in the home and made sure task force detectives could safely enter the home and execute the warrant.

Jennifer Platt, 36, N.W. Sixth St., Okeechobee, was arrested Sunday, J une 2, on charges of obtaining merchandise/money with false receipt, retail theft (three counts), tampering with evidence, resisting a law enforcement of cer without violence, possession of drug paraphernalia, giving false information to obtain a refund and resisting a merchant. She was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail on $12,000 bond. The spree apparently began Saturday, J une 1, when a bottle of gas treatment, a can of tire sealant and a quart of oil were stolen from a convenience store on U.S. 98 N., stated an arrest report by Deputy Leland Schoonmaker of the Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of ce (OCSO). The deputys report pointed out that store surveillance captured a woman taking the items and putting them in a handbag. She then went to the cash register, pulled the items out of the bag and asked the clerk for a refund of $25.97, stated the deputy. The woman allegedly told the clerk she bought the items but no longer needed them. After making the refund, the clerk became suspicious and viewed the surveillance tape which supposedly showed the woman taking the items and putting them in her bag. The next day OCSO Deputy Sergeant Shannon Peterson returned to that same store around 2:20 p.m. to handle a shoplifting complaint. Sgt. Peterson stated that a woman had entered the store and took two quarts of motor oil, one quart of synthetic motor oil and one can of Big Puncture Tire Seal. Those items had a retail value of $40.09, he added. According to Sgt. Petersons report, store surveillance video showed a woman entering the store and taking the items. His report went on to indicate that she left the area riding an orange and purple bicycle. Then, at 5:59 p.m. on Sunday, Of cer Chad Troutman of the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD) was called to Walmart to handle a shoplifting complaint. Store surveillance there depicted a woman entering the store with several receipts in her hand. She then went through the store, took items off the shelves that matched the items on the receipts and took those items to customer service where she used the receipts to get a cash refund of $17.91, stated the ofcers report. That woman, stated the of cer, was identi ed as Jennifer Platt. Store loss prevention personnel tried to stop Platt but she started running on foot and got away. Store personnel did, however, manage to grab Platts backpack when she dropped it. Of cer Troutman said he searched that backpack and found an insulin syringe that contained a clear residue, along with two spoons that had a white residue. The residue on the spoon was eld tested and that test reportedly indicated a positive result for the presence of opiates. Platt was later found hiding in some bushes at S.W. 23rd Street and S.W. Third Ave., stated the of cer. He went on to state that he put Platt in his patrol unit and was taking her back to Walmart when she began to throw 12 pieces o f paper out of a rear window he had opened due to the heat in the car. He retrieved those papers that turned out to be old receipts from Walmart, stated his report. Sgt. Peterson stated in his report that when Platt was captured a can of Big Puncture Tire Seal and a can of oil, similar to those taken from the convenience store, were found in her backpack by Of cer Troutman. The OCPD of cer pointed out in his report that the syringe and spoons will be sent to the Indian River Crime Lab in Fort Pierce for analysis.

MurphyOkeechobee NewsJuanYae Ford scored three touchdowns and rushed for 82 yards on 10 carries to highlight the scrimmage between eighth graders at the Brahman Purple White game on Friday night. For many of the players it was their rst taste of competitive football. Thirty-three players suited up for the contest this year. Coach Chris Hall said the team has some good skilled players this year. He said with 20 days of practice, its hard to nd out what the team has but he thinks there is potential and that the team will be competitive in the fall. I think theyre a good group of kids. They are very coachable and anxious to learn. If they stay on track and get in the weight room over the summer and stay apart of the program, I see some good things for them down the road, he explained. Kevin Hawthorne had 35 yards on two carries -including a 29-yard touchdown jaunt. Demetrius Clark caught a 23-yard pass. Drayton Billie had a 12-yard touchdown run. Ronnie Knowles rushed for 36 yards on two carries. Antawyn Fludd had an 18-yard reception. Leaders on the defense included Coby Grif s, J ohn Waggle, Dilmer Larowe, and Billie. Joseph Benjamin had three tackles which included two sacks. Caleb Smith had a pass de ection for the defense. Hall said they will continue to work on being aggressive and learning skills. He said over half of the squad had never played football before in their life and that showed at times. Some of the kids have played for a while and they were difference makers tonight. I feel youre only as good as your weakest link and we want to strengthen everyone, he added. Varsity coach Chris Branham told the group afterward that some of them might have the ability to play at the varsity level as freshman. He said football is not just 30 days in May or practice in August, but a year-round commitment. For some of you there is an opportunity to play varsity but you have to be committed, to your grades and to conditioning, he said. The competition level will increase. The future starts now. Ford said he felt the team worked hard this spring and that he felt comfortable at quarterback, a position he has never played before. I will play wherever they want me to play but you can expect big plays out of me if I play quarterback. I have got to learn everything I can. To go far, you have to be coachable, he added. Offensive lineman James Thomas was praised by the coaching staff for his intensity and effort. He did a good job opening holes for the run game. It was pretty hard in the trenches. I pushed one guy through the end zone on a play, he added. Thomas said the kids need to turnout in the weight room this summer so they can play at the high school. He predicted the team will be strong in the fall. We have some pretty good athletes this year. We just have to work hard in the offseason, he added. Eighth graders get rst taste of Brahman football Okeechobee News/Charles MurphyJuanYae Ford was impressive at the quarterback position during the scrimmage between eighth graders last Friday at Brahman Stadium.

From the Fla. Depart. of HealthDid you know modest amounts of ultrav iolet (UV) exposure, by way of sunlight, are actually a part of good health? Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to UVB (short UV rays that come from the sun) in small amounts. Vitamin D helps regulate calcium levels in the blood and is needed for bone and musculoskeletal health. UV radiation has also been used by trained medical professionals to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis. Too much UV exposure, including exposure via indoor tanning, can cause cancer. The World Health Organization recommends 5-15 minutes of casual sun exposure twice a week. More UV exposure than that can have adverse health effects. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), indoor tanning methods such as using a booth, bed or lamp can cause cancers including skin cancers (melanomas) and cancers of the eye. QUESTION: What is the difference between UVA rays and UVB rays? ANSWER: According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services Food and Drug Administration, UVB rays penetrate the top layers of skin. UVB rays are not as prevalent as UVA rays, but are most responsible for tanning and sunburns. UVA rays penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and are often associated with allergic reactions such as a rash. Short-wavelength UVB is a known carcinogenan agent that causes cancer, premature skin aging, and wrinkling. Researchers are nding that longer-wavelength UVA rays also contribute to cancer. QUESTION: What UV exposure do you get from indoor tanning? ANSWER: Tanning beds can emit both UV rays but primarily UVA. The high-pressure sunlamps used in tanning salons emit doses of UVA as much as 12 times that of the sun. QUESTION: Does Florida require any cancer-related warning information about UV exposure to be available at tanning facilities? ANSWER: Yes. Warning signs must be posted in conspicuous places in the tanning facility and similar warning signs must be imprinted on each tanning device used at the salon. The sign must state the following warning and instructions: DANGER, ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION Follow these instructions: Avoid frequent or lengthy exposure. As with natural sunlight, exposure can cause eye and skin injury or allergic reactions. Repeated exposure can cause chronic sun damage characterized by wrinkling, dryness, fragility and bruising of the skin or skin cancer. Wear protective eyewear. FAILURE TO USE PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR CAN RESULT IN SEVERE BURNS OR LONG-TERM INJURY TO THE EYES. Ultraviolet radiation from sunlamps will aggravate the effects of the sun. Therefore, do not sunbathe before or after exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Using medications or cosmetics can increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation. Consult a physician before using a sunlamp if you are using medications, have a history of skin problems, or believe you are especially sensitive to sunlight. Women who are pregnant or on birth control that use this product can develop discolored skin. IF YOU DO NOT TAN IN THE SUN YOU WILL NOT TAN BY USING THIS DEVICE. Floridas tanning facility operational requirements are found in Chapter 64E-17, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.)(41 K PDF) and 381.89, Florida Statutes (F.S.). More information can also be found at http:/ / www.doh.state. .us/environment/community/tanning/pdfs/IndoorTan.pdf. QUESTION: Is there any correlation between a persons age and their risk of cancer from tanning? ANSWER: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site, people who begin tanning before theyre 35 have a 75 percent higher risk of melanoma. Furthermore, the World Health Organization writes, The United States Department of Health and Human Services has classi ed exposure to sunlamps or sunbeds as known to be carcinogenic to humans and states that the longer the exposure, the greater the risk, especially to people exposed before the age of 30 years. 20 Okeechobee News June 5, 2013 By Charles M.

Radio surgery is a technique that utilizes specialized machines that allow large amounts of radiation to be delivered with sub millimeter accuracy thereby killing the cancers without damaging surrounding normal tissues. 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.

By Tony YoungFWC Every hunter knows you have a better chance of catching a monster buck off-guard during the rst part of hunting season. Thats w hy many of us enjoy hunting the archery and muzzleloading gun seasonsand why w e cant miss opening weekend of the general gun season. If you hunt public land, you should know that many of Floridas wildlife management areas (WMAs) require a quota permit to hunt during archery, muzzleloading gun and all or part of the general gun season. A quota is the maximum number of hunters allowed on a particular WMA. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Quota Hunt Program prev ents overcrowding on such areas and prov ides quality hunts. Quotas also help control game harvests. The FWC sets quotas based on an areas size, habitat, game populations and regulations. There are several types of quota permits, and most are issued by random drawing. The rst-phase application period for archery, muzzleloading gun, general gun, youth, family, track vehicle (a swamp buggy with tank treads), airboat and mobility-impaired quota hunt permits runs June 1-30, so youve got all month to get em in. You may submit one application for each of the hunt types, and there is no fee to apply. One thing to remember though: Unless exempt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit (or a license that includes one) when applying for a quota permit, or the system wont accept your application. Two of these quota hunts are unique to south Florida. An airboat quota permit is required for anyone wishing to hunt out of an airboat on Everglades and Francis S. Taylor WMA in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. But, if youd rather hunt off a track vehicle there, or on Rotenberger or Holey Land WMAs in Palm Beach County, youll need a track vehicle quota permit. The FWC offers youth deer hunts on Camp Blanding WMA in Clay County and on Andrews WMA in Levy County. If you have children between the ages of 8 and 15, and you want them to have a chance to experience one of these great hunts, apply for a youth quota hunt permit, because only 160 kids will get to participate. During these hunts, only the youngsters may hunt, and they and their adult supervisors are the only people allowed on the area. To increase hunting opportunities for youths, youngsters may accompany an adult quota permit holder on any WMAeven if the area doesnt allow for exemptions. However, adults and youngsters must share a single bag limit. This coming season, there will be family quota hunts on 25 WMAs. You must have a family quota hunt permit to hunt these areas during speci c time periods. If you are drawn, the permit requires one adult to take one or two youths hunting.

Ifby Rudyard KiplingIf you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, dont deal in lies, Or being hated, dont give way to hating, And yet dont look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dreamand not make dreams your master; If you can thinkand not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth youve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: Hold on! If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kingsnor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; With sixty seconds worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything thats in it, Andwhich is moreyoull be a Man, my son!Source: A Choice of Kiplings Verse (1943)Love, Dad Congratulations,JEB! 2 Okeechobee News 2013 Graduation Keepsake 2013 Graduation Keepsake June 5, 2013 Courtesy Photo/OHS Journalism Class of 2013 Of cers (left to right): L-R: Secretary Kyla Hargraves, Vice President Brendon Jonassaint, President Sarah Davis, Treasurer Samantha Rivero.
