Glades Electric recently honored the achievements of a select group of students from our service counties – Glades, Hendry, Highlands, and Okeechobee. On this special evening the Glades Electric Educational Foundation, Glades Electric Cooperative Board of trustees, parents, teachers, counselors, and school administrators gathered to celebrate and reward the accomplishments of these high achieving students. To set the stage; prior to 2000, Florida mandated that a cooperative’s unclaimed capital credits had to be surrendered for use in the State’s General Fund. In an effort to preserve these funds for the bene t of their members, electric cooperatives throughout the state successfully convinced the legislature to allow them to retain the unclaimed credits and invest them as they saw t. The Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative (in following the Seventh Cooperative Principle – Concern for Community) chose to invest these funds in the future of the communities they represent. The board determined that rewarding the efforts of our area’s hard-working, achievement-oriented young people via college scholarships was a great way to foster bright, innovative future leadership in our communities. It was out of the trustee’s forward thinking that the Glade Electric Educational Foundation (GEEF) was established. It is important to note that the scholarships administered by the foundation are funded solely from these unclaimed capital credits and do not cost the membership a penny! The college scholarships are awarded to members’ children who are high school seniors and have upheld academic excellence. Each of GEC’s service counties (Highlands, Glades, Hendry, and Okeechobee) receives two $4,000 scholarships. The students’ academic achievement, leadership involvement, and extra-curricular activities are among some of the variables taken into consideration. The decision seems to grow more dif cult each year as the number of applicants continue to rise. This is a wonderful testament to the hard work of our area’s school administrators, staff, and teachers in encouraging more students to seek higher education. Additionally, GEC awarded two high school juniors with an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit our nation’s capital on an all expenses paid, weeklong trip. There they join other juniors from cooperatives around the nation to tour Washington D.C., learn the history of rural electri cation, visit historic monuments, and meet face-to-face with our legislators. The trip, known as the “Washington Youth Tour,” is sponsored b y the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Through the years, Glades Electric has continued to support service area schools and make youth a top priority. GEC and the Glades Electric Educational Foundation are proud to have the opportunity to help make dreams come true. This is just one way that we can continue being “Neighbors Working for Neighbors.” Okeechobee County recipients were Sarah H. Davis and Sage A. Douglas. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 MOVIE TICKETS:Adults $6.50 Children 12 & under $5.00 Senior Citizens $5.00 all movies Matinees $4.50Fri., June 7 TH Thurs., June 13THFor Info, Call 763-7202 I: “FAST AND FURIOUS 6”Fri. 7:00 & 9:10, Sat., Sun., Tues., Wed. & Thurs. 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:10, Mon. 3:00 & 7:00III: “THE INTERNSHIP”Fri., 7:00 & 9:00, Sat., Sun., Tues., Wed.& Thurs., 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:00, Mon. 3:00 & 7:00II: “HANGOVER 3”Fri., 7:00 & 9:00, Sat., Sun., Tues, Wed., & Thurs. 2:00, 4:15, 7:00 & 9:00, Mon. 3:00 & 7:00 R PG-13 PG-13 2 Okeechobee News June 7, 2013 The American Red Cross will hold the annual Hurricane Preparedness Seminar on Tuesday, June 11, from 5 to 7 p.m., to inform the public of the importance of being prepared for this hurricane season.

Children’s Services CouncilI have been lucky enough to live in our w onderful community nearly my entire life. During that time I have been blessed to both receive the bene ts of and participate in numerous service clubs and community organizations. In the past I had believed that a majority of the community organizations were primarily funded directly by the Okeechobee County Board of County Commissioners, but I recently learned of an organization that supports our community on a level unmatched by any other. I am speaking of the Children's Services Council of Okeechobee County (CSC). I recently took the opportunity to attend a meeting for CSC and was blown away, rst at the number of organizations in Okeechobee that I had never heard of that are doing amazing things for our youth, and secondly by the diligence this board takes in vetting and awarding their funds. The board consists of Kathleen Blaire, Judge Jerry Bryant, Melisa Jahner, Commissioner Joey Hoover, Superintendent Ken Kenworthy, Libby Maxwell, Tom Peer, India Riedel and Donna Watson. The CSC is an independent taxing authority founded by the voters of Okeechobee in 1990. The Council's mission is to enhance the lives of all children in Okeechobee County and enable them to attain their full potential by providing funds to qualifying agencies. These agencies provide programs that improve the quality of life for children and include preventive, developmental, treatment and/or rehabilitative services. The Council annually reviews funding requests solicited by Requests for Proposals. I encourage everyone to attend a CSC meeting and be as impressed as I was at the care and concern given to Okeechobee's youth. The Council meets the second Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. It is m y understanding that continuation of the ta x funds received by CSC will be on the ballo t in 2014 and I pray that everyone researches the amazing things CSC does and votes to keep their funding! Without this funding, Okeechobee will lose summer camps, drug use prevention programs, after school educational programs, and so much more. Thank you again to the Children's Services Council of Okeechobee, and thank you to the citizens of Okeechobee for establishing this organization in 1990. I pray they are abl e to continue helping the youth of Okeechobee for many years to come! Sincerely, J.D. Mixon 863-634-1778, jmixon12@gmail.com Summer Solstice In regard to the ministers protesting the summer solstice festival in Pahokee, any publicity is good publicity. Funny how all these ignorant people think pagans worship the devil, when the truth is, pagans don't even believe in the devil! With all of the reports of drive-by shootings and gang violence, I think Pahokee has a lot bigger problems than some folks dancing around a re. As long as the Summer Solstice festival goers don't break any laws, leave them alone. I am sure Pahokee merchants can use any business they might get from this event. I wonder what would happen if they had a festival like this at Okee-Tantie. Oh wait, we can't have events like that here because the campground was messed up by the hurricanes and never repaired. It always amazes me how people are so quick to judge things they know nothing about. It isn't like they are going to be w orshiping satan, because they don't. They aren't going to be dancing around nude. There isn't going to be any blood rituals or killing of babies or animals. But yet the Christians/pastors in the community want to protest and try to throw them out. Get real people. Fear is the devil's play toy. No nude dancing? Well I was planning on going. Being a lover of nature, I can understand how a person without scriptural knowledge could be led astray by these people and their beliefs. The Bible cautions us to worship the Creator and not the thing created. It also says that Jehovah is a jealous God. It seems to me that worshipping the gifts of our Creator is similar to thanking a gift, rather than the giver of the gift. There are many churches in the Pahokee area. I believe those ministers should stay in their churches and caution their ock of the evil in their midst. After all, there are many evils around us all the time, and to go to the commissioners who are a part of worldly affairs is futile.Teen charges The much publicized Katilyn Hunt case shows that Florida is serious about the statutory rape laws. Teenagers need to know they can go to jail and be labeled sex offenders for life if they get involved with younger kids. Hunt was 18 and the other teen was 14. Legally, that is statutory rape. In Florida, if you are 18 or older, you had better be careful if you date anyone younger than 18. Parents should warn their kids about this. It doesn't matter if you are a boy or a girl. It doesn't matter if you are straight or gay. The law is applied equally to all based on age. And just because a kid acts older or looks older does not matter, you better be sure exactly how old they really are.Fireworks I was so happy to learn that Okeechobee will have a Fourth of July reworks show this year. We have lost so many of our community traditions because the people who once organized them moved away or got too old to do it and no one else stepped up to take over. People say "somebody should do it." Well, aren't you somebody? If you see something you think should be done, then step up and volunteer to help get it done. June 7, 2013 4 Okeechobee News OPINION Public Forum/Speak Out Letter to the editor Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to www.newszap.com, click on the comm unity name and your local or state P ublic Forum. There, you can create n ew topics or comment on existing topics. What follows is a sam pling of s ome of the discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating! By Melissa YunasFlorida Forest Service As residents prepare for Hurricane Season, they are urged to trim trees and remove yard trash BEFORE a storm threatens. This tip is to prevent objects from becoming dangerous projectiles during a hurricane. In rural communities, tree and shrub trimmings, grass clippings, palm fronds, trees and tree stumps start to accumulate. Some rural residents do not have access to county or commercial solid waste collection service for yard trash. Rural residents have two options: (1) Selfhauling yard trash to the neighborhood trash and recycling centers, (2) Burning yard trash. Yard trash burning might be a cost-effective solution to hauling the debris away. Burning small amounts of yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service of cials to see if there are any restrictions in your area. Many people do not know or are not aware of Florida's outdoor burning regulations. Familiarize yourself with the burning regulations in your area. If you are to burn here a few tips to keep in mind: Never leave a re unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave; Keep a shovel and water hose handy; Don't burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35%; The yard trash material intended to be burned must be generated on the premises o f the burn site; The res must not cause smoke, soot, odors, visible emissions, heat, ame, radiation, or other conditions to the degree that they become a nuisance or safety hazard; The re must be started after 9 a.m. and be out by one hour after sunset; Your re must be contained to an 8-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from your house, 50 feet from a paved public road and 150 feet from other occupied buildings; If your re escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. Wild res can occur all year round in Florida. During the summer months wild res typically are smaller in size due to the wet season. Exercise caution when burning your yard trash

By Tobacco Free Partnership of Okeechobee CountySchools are in a uniquely powerful position to play a major role in reducing the serious problem of smoking and other tobacco use by kids. Children spend almost a third of their waking time in school, or about 135 hours per month, and much of the peer pressure kids feel regarding whether or not to use tobacco occurs in school. The vast majority of all smokers begin before leaving high school. A national survey in 2012 found that 4.9 percent of eighth graders, 10.8 percent of tenth graders and 17.1 percent of twelfth graders had smoked in the past month. Unfortunately, this problem can begin long before high school or even junior high. Very little data about smoking is regularly collected for kids under 12, but the peak years for rst trying to smoke appear to be in the sixth and seventh grades, or between the ages of 11 and 12, with a considerable number starting even earlier. In 2011, 6.1 percent of eighth grade students reported having had their rst cigarette by fth grade (ages 10 11), and 15.5 percent had tried smoking by the eighth grade. If current trends continue, more than 6.3 million kids under the age of 18 who are alive today will ultimately die from smoking-related disease. Smoking and other tobacco use causes numerous immediate, sometimes irreversible, health effects and risks that can seriously damage kids' health well before they leave school or reach adulthood. And symptoms of serious addiction, which can lead to y ears of tobacco use and dependence, can appear within weeks or even days after occasional smoking begins. One survey found that more than 60 percent of those who had been daily smokers in high school still were daily smokers seven to nine years later, even though only three percent thought that they w ould still be smoking in ve years. Smoking may also be a "gateway" to illegal drug use. Adolescent smoking usually precedes illegal drug use; and the earlier a child experiments with tobacco, the more likely he or she is to use marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other illicit drugs.The role of schools in reducing youth smoking and other tobacco use:For schools to effectively prevent and reduce youth tobacco use among their students, they must create an environment that encourages anti-tobacco beliefs and behaviors. This fact sheet offers a brief summary of suggested anti-tobacco policies and programs for schools recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other youth tobacco prevention experts. For more detailed information, please refer to the cited references. Forbid tobacco use by students, staff and visitors on all school grounds and at all school sponsored events. School tobaccofree policies that are clearly and consistently communicated, applied and enforced reduce tobacco use among students. While just making sure that no kids use tobacco at school is helpful, also prohibiting tobacco use by teachers, other school staff and visitors sends a much more powerful and constructive tobacco-free message. And while adopting rm tobacco-free policies for all school properties and events will have a strong positive impact in and of themselves, these policies are even more effective when accompanied by prevention and cessation education. Many schools are already required to prohibit smoking because the Federal Pro Children's Act of 1994 prohibits smoking in facilities that regularly provide certain Federally-funded children's services. Provide comprehensive tobacco prevention education. School-based education programs to prevent and reduce youth tobacco use work, but they have to be done right. To work best, such programs should comprehensively address all aspects of tobacco use, including the shortand long-term negative health effects, social acceptability, social in uences, negative social consequences, peer norms and peer pressure, resistance and refusal skills and media literacy as it relates to tobacco marketing and advertising. In addition, it is not enough to offer antitobacco education only in middle school or early high school. Students should receive this instruction and guidance, in one form or another, throughout their educational experience. Effective youth tobacco prevention programs are grade and age sensitive, with the most intense instruction in middle school and reinforcement throughout high school. Provide program-speci c training for teachers. When teachers are trained to properly deliver tobacco prevention curriculum, the success of the overall program is greatly improved. Effective training should include a review of curriculum content, modeling of program activities by skilled trainers and the opportunity for teachers to practice implementing program activities. Involve parents and families in school efforts to prevent tobacco use. Families have an enormous in uence on students' tobacco perceptions and attitudes, and family members should be involved in school tobaccofree efforts as much as possible. Programs that include interactive homework assignments that educate and involve parents and other family members not only increase family discussions on this important topic but can lead to better home policies about tobacco use and even encourage adult tobacco users to try to quit. Offer interactive tobacco-free projects for students. To reinforce the school's tobacco-free policies and strengthen its related programs, schools should offer students opportunities to work on projects to reduce the pro-tobacco in uences in their communities. For example, students could do a survey of stores near their school that advertise and sell tobacco products, and then write letters to the store owners urging them to reduce or eliminate their externally visible tobacco-product ads. Similarly, students could start a letter-writing campaign to encourage magazines available in the school library to stop running any tobacco-product advertisements. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids' Kick Butts Day activity guide describes additional anti-smoking projects for students that can be done independently or as part of Kick Butts Day each year. Help tobacco-using students and staff quit. Efforts to reduce tobacco use among school kids must focus on more than just preventing kids from starting. Too many kids already use tobacco products, and these kids need help quitting. Most smokers want to quit smoking. In 2011, 49.9 percent of high school smokers tried to quit smoking. In 2010, 52.4 percent of adults tried to quit smoking, but only 6.2 percent were successful in staying quit for six months or more. Schools can improve these quitting percentages by providing effective cessation assistance to their students and staff who use tobacco. If school-run cessation programs are not possible, schools can still provide students and staff with information on how to quit and on how to link up with community-based cessation programsor even bring program representatives to the schools. If there is a shortage of available cessation programs, schools can play an important role in developing new ones by partnering with community health, youth and other volunteer organizations. In any such efforts, schools should be mindful of the fact that successful cessation approaches differ for kids and adults. Cessation programs for adolescents, for example, should focus more on immediate consequences, offer speci c attainable goals and use contracts that include rewards. Adopt a rm school policy of not accepting any funding, curricula or other materials from any tobacco companies. Tobacco companies produce and market incredibly harmful and addictive products, and they rely on kids to replace their adult customers who die or quit. For that reason, schools should be completely off limits to tobacco companies. But the major cigarette companies still try to get schools to accept all sorts of assistancelike book covers, industr y sponsored tobacco prevention curricula and "anti-youth-smoking" funding booksas part of their much broader public relations and political strategies. Some schools sa y that the only way they can offer tobacco prevention programs and materials to their students is by taking these tobacco-compan y "gifts." Yet, in many cases, the schools have not even tried to nd or develop alternative sources of income or assistance. Regardless, accepting tobacco company funding and materials always bene ts the tobacco companies a lot more than the school, and it's always a bad deal for our kids. Evaluate the school's tobacco-free programs at regular intervals. Schools should regularly evaluate their success at implementing smoke-free policies, programs and curriculum components, as well as their success at decreasing students' tobacco use. Such evaluations are necessary for schools to determine which areas of their programs need improvement, as well as to demonstrate the positive effects of the program to students, parents and the community, as well as to other schools who have not adopted tobacco prevention programs. By taking some or all of these steps, schools can have an enormous impact on the current and future health and well being of their students. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Okeechobee News June 7, 2013 Schools can help students stay tobacco-free Special to the Okeechobee NewsFoster parents are neededAt a recent Rotary meeting, Bob McPartlan explained to the Rotary Club of Okeechobee how important community support is in local families.

Joshua Aaron Scott, 31, S.E. Fifth Ave., Okeechobee, was arrested Tuesday, June 4, on felon y charges of defrauding a pawnbroker, burglary and grand theft. He was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond of $35,000. An arrest report by Detective Marty D. Faulkner, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated that Scott stole a number of tools that had a total value o f $650. Those tools included a chainsaw, an air chisel, an air compressor and a lawnmower. The detective went on to indicate that Scott also took a gold necklace and charm from the same home. The man reportedl y sold those two items to a local jewelry store for $500. According to the veteran detective this case remains open and his investigation is continuing.Man charged in theft of toolsFacebook photos lead to chargesAn anonymous complaint about Facebook photos showing multiple harvested w ild turkeys ended with charges being led against four men for various hunting violations. Travis Clayton McFatter, 27, Blake Dalton King, 20, Zachary David Espenship, 20, all of Lake City, and Dustin Wayne Parrish, 26, of Lulu, were cited by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) of cers. The photographs showed McFatter and King posing with several freshly harvested turkeys and McFatter also posing with a dead alligator. FWC investigators interviewed the two men. McFatter admitted to investigators that he had killed ve turkeys during the season, as well as taking two birds in one day. The legal daily bag limit is one turkey, and the season bag limit is two birds. One of the photos McFatter had posted showed three harvested gobblers. He received that photo from his cousin, Parrish, but didn’t know the details about the birds. “Mr. McFatter also explained he picked up the road-killed alligator near his house,” said FWC Investigator Todd Hoyle. “He took the gator home, snapped a few photos and ate the meat.” McFatter was charged with taking over the daily bag limit for turkeys, three counts of taking over the season limit of two turkeys and possession of an untagged alligator. He was also given two noncriminal citations for no hunting license and no turkey stamp. During his interview with investigators, King admitted to killing four turkeys. “Mr. King gave permission to search his truck, and investigators found fresh blood in the bed and on the tailgate of his pickup,” Hoyle said. “He told us that he and his friend, Mr. Espenship, were headed home from their hunting club and saw a deer standing on the shoulder of the road. Mr. Espenship then shot the deer.” Espenship admitted to killing the deer while it stood blinded by the headlights of the truck. He gave investigators four bags of deer meat and the .22-caliber Winchester ri e he used to kill the animal. Joshua Scott

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Okeechobee News June 7, 2013 “We just can’t take the chance,” said Superintendent of Schools Ken Kenworthy. School of cials met with county emergency of cials on Thursday afternoon to review the storm’s projected track. Around 2:40 p.m., they made the decision to postpone graduation by 24 hours. “Better safe than sorry,” said Mr. Kenworthy. Graduation ceremonies are expected to pack the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center with thousands of friends and family members of 330 graduating seniors. The safety of the students and their friends and family members while at the ceremonies and while traveling to and from graduation was the most important consideration, Mr. Kenworthy said. Since the Agri-Civic Center facility is open on all sides, there was also concern that high winds would blow the rain into the aren a and stands. OHS graduation ceremonies will be held Friday, June 7, at 8 p.m. at the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center. The entrance to the AgriCivic Center is off State Road 710. The all night graduation party for the seniors will be Friday night at the KOA. OHSContinued From Page 1 $817 per full-time employee. When the new retirement and insurance costs are added together, the sheriff is looking at an automatic budget increase of $189,477. But the sheriff’s request for a 3 percent cost of living adjustment for his employees w ill likely receive the most adverse comment from members of the Okeechobee Board of County Commissioners. Sheriff May explained that what he’s proposing isn’t actually a raise but, rather, more of a reimbursement. “Two years ago all of the employees in the retirement system lost 3 percent because they had to pay into that system, so they aren’t actually getting a raise. Our rank and le employees haven’t had a raise since Jan. 1, 2009,” he said, adding that the six members of the upper echelon of employees haven’t had a raise since Oct. 1, 2007. He also pointed out that he has recently lost four seasoned deputies who took jobs elsewhere for more money. Three of those w ent to the Martin County Sheriff’s Of ce, w hile the other deputy went to work for the Osceola County Sheriff’s Of ce. “All four of them that left enjoyed working here,” said Sheriff May. “The only reason they left was for money.” The sheriff’s of ce has also lost two people from their IT department who left for greener pastures, and two other employees have resigned to take jobs in the private sector because they also needed more pay. This cost of living adjustment is not a one-time cost, but will be a re-occurring expense. Sheriff May said he does not plan on backing off from this request. “We’ve done away with some positions, such as the Street Crimes Unit. We have 10 people on each shift on the road and in corrections. Our goal is to keep seven people on a shift,” he explained, adding that some employees could be missing from a shift due to sick leave, vacation, days off and such. “Any less than that is a danger to the men and women on the road and in the jail, and I intend to stand rm.” The OCSO budget is also taking another hit due to the shrinking of a federal grant that funds—or, should we say, used to fund—the Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force. The Byrne Grant has been reduced to a total of $59,485, which only partially covers the cost of an of cer from the Okeechobee City Police Department who has been assigned to the task force. This means the sheriff’s of ce will absorb the entire cost of the six other members of that unit. According to OCSO Executive Assistant J uanita White, it costs the sheriff’s of ce a minimum of $58,153 per deputy. This cost is for a starting position only and includes all of the deputy’s bene ts as well as their starting salary of $34,000. It does not, however, cover the cost of such items as their uniforms, gun belts, cars, fuel and bullet proof vests. This cost is the same for a starting road deputy as well as a starting corrections ofcer, said Mrs. White, and it goes up as the employee advances. She added that it costs the sheriff about $10,000 to put a new deputy through the law enforcement academy and to train them. Another big expense for the sheriff’s ofce in the upcoming scal year will be an estimated $410,000 in capital outlay, which includes the purchase of up to 12 new vehicles, along with new computer le servers and some other equipment. Sheriff May said he has several units being used by his road patrol division that are either at 100,000 miles now, or will be in the very near future. He went on to say that new prisoner transport vehicles also have to be purchased for the corrections division. One of their transport vans has over 200,000 miles on it, he added. The sheriff could not say how much each vehicle will cost since they will be purchased on a state contract and the bids have yet to be offered. He went on to say he’s been squeezing all the use he can out of his current vehicles, but now “it’s time to pay the ddler.” “People in the community are driving their cars more, and we’re doing the same thing,” he said. “But, to be safe, these cars need to come off the road around 100,000 miles. I need the cars.” The sheriff did say that he has some personnel currently using vehicles that have been seized as a result of felony cases. Mrs. White added that commissioners asked the sheriff to use a three-year average of actual costs to gure his expenses in the 2013-14 proposed budget. The average cost in fuel for law enforcement and corrections was $387,875, she said. “We took what we actually spent in motor fuel for the last three years,” she said. On average, said OCSO Major Noel Stephen, a road patrol deputy will drive about 2,000 miles per month. He went on to say the average cost for a gallon is fuel is $3.20. To back up his request for more money, Sheriff May pointed out that in the last ve years his budget has been cut $3.56 million. That, he added, is almost 20 percent of his budget. The sheriff also pointed out that in scal year 2008-09 he had 225 employees. Today, he has 208 and is expected to provide the same level of service and protection. “I need this increase to make it work. I do not feel it’s outlandish,” said Sheriff May. OCSOContinued From Page 1 The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will meet June 11-13 in Lakeland at the Hilton Garden Inn, 3839 Don Emerson Drive. The meeting is open to the public, and all interested individuals may speak within the guidelines established by the commission. The June 11 workshop starts at 1 p.m. with the consideration of 11 consent agenda items, among which include eliminating the requirement for a recreational shing license when targeting the nonnative, invasive lion sh with certain gear, and not imposing recreational or commercial limits on harvesting. After that, Director Nick Wiley will present his Executive Director’s Report. Next, commissioners and staff will review and discuss the agency’s budget-development process. On both Wednesday, June 12, and Thursday, June 13, the meeting reconvenes at 8:30 a.m. On June 13, following recognitions that include the high school state champion shing team and youth angler, awards will be presented to the Youth Hunting Program Landowner of the Year and the Florida program’s volunteer Hunter Safety Instructor of the Year. The commission will also examine a draft rule that would prohibit the importation of live deer into the state, to prevent chronic wasting disease from being introduced into Florida’s deer herd. Following action on the previous agenda item, the commission will consider draft rule proposals that would make changes to the Alligator Farming Program and the Private Lands Alligator Management Program. Next on the agenda is a discussion of a draft rule that would reduce user conicts and eliminate confusing language about the FWC’s haul seine program on Lake Okeechobee. The nal draft rule discussion for the day deals with endangered and threatened species. Staff will present a recommendation to approve a one-year extension to November 2014, which would allow more time for the FWC and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to further develop and adopt Best Management Practices to conserve wildlife on agricultural lands. Staff will update commissioners on the progress that has been made on drafting an Imperiled Species Management Plan to conserve 60 species. This will include draft species action plans released this year for public input, which can be viewed at MyFWC.com/Imperiled.

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.

YOU ASKED FOR IT!Look near the Classifieds sectionNow featuring Sudoku and Crossword Puzzle in every edition of the 11 Okeechobee News June 7, 2013Even though nearly two-thirds of families with small children plan on swimming in areas without lifeguards this summer, many people don’t know the right thing to do in w ater emergencies or how to keep their loved ones safe in the water, according to a new American Red Cross poll. “People tend to spend more time in and around the water during the summer, so now is a great time to review w ater safety precautions so you know what to do to stay safe,” said Regional Executive Rob Levine. The survey ndings show that people mistakenly believe some steps such as having a swimming buddy or otation device will keep them safe. For example, while the Red Cross recommends that people always swim with a buddy in designated swimming areas supervised by lifeguards, buddies alone are not enough to keep swimmers safe. Two thirds (67 percent) of those asked mistakenly believe that putting in atable arm bands, or “water wings,” on children is enough to keep them safe when an adult is not nearby. These are not lifesaving devices, and children and weak/inexperienced swimmers should wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets while remaining under constant adult supervision. The Red Cross poll found 63 percent of families with children plan on swimming in an area without a lifeguard this summer. However, nearly half of those polled had never taken swimming lessons, with African-Americans (32 percent) less likely to have received formal training. Nearly half of Americans say they have had an experience where they were afraid they would drown, according to the ndings. Hispanics reported a higher percentage (66 percent) of having such an experience over Whites (46 percent). Overall, four in 10 (41 percent) say they know someone who was in danger of drowning, which is an increase of 16 percentage points from a similar 2009 Red Cross survey. Another concerning nding in the 2013 Red Cross survey was that most of those polled were unsure of the right steps to take when someone appears to be in distress in the water: More than nine in 10 (93 percent) people were unable to identify the correct order of actions to take to help a swimmer who may be in danger of drowning. “The correct steps to take when you see a swimmer who needs help is to shout for help, reach or throw the person a rescue or otation device and tell them to grab it; then call 9-1-1 if needed,” Mr. Levine said. “People think that if a person isn’t calling out for help that they must not need help. However, they are likely using all their energy to just try to stay above water.” “People think they should enter the water to save someone, but often this endangers the life of the rescuer,” he added. Other signs of a swimmer in trouble include:  treading water and waving an arm;  doggie paddling with no forward progress;  hanging onto a safety line;  oating on their back and waving their arms;  arms extended side or front, pressing down for support, but making no forward progress;  positioned vertically in the water, but not kicking legs;  underwater for more than 30 seconds;  oating at surface, face-down, for more than 30 seconds. Red Cross swimming lessons help people develop skills and water safety behaviors that help people be more comfortable and safe when they are in, on and around the water. The Red Cross encourages all household members to enroll in age-appropriate water orientation and Learn-toSwim programs. To nd classes for your family, contact your local aquatic facility and ask for American Red Cross swimming programs.Survey nds people confused about water safety

MurphyOkeechobee News Cristina Tinajero was named Most Valuable Player and Julia Weldon won the Brahman Award for the Okeechobee High School Lady Brahman weight lifting team on May 31 between games at the Purple White Football Classic. Coach Tyrone Smith said 2013 was another successful year for the weight lifting team. He said he thinks several girls have the potential to reach state in 2014. “The girls have done a wonderful job recruiting other females to participate in spring and summer workouts. All female athletes are welcome to participate and attend workouts,” he said. They are in need of a girl in the 101 pound weight division for the 2013-2014 season. You must have an updated physical to participate. Weldon was praised as she improved her weight lifting by 75 pounds in the past y ear. Weldon said that showed that she was determined to get better and reach the state tournament. “It feels pretty good to win the Brahman A ward and I’m excited, it was a pretty good y ear for the team,” she explained. Weldon had a friend that got her interested in the sport. She tried it out in the summer during workouts and decided to stick w ith it. Her best lifts this year were a clean and jerk of 105 pounds and a bench press of 95 pounds. Tinajero said her freshman year was highlighted by a trip to the state nals in Kissimmee. She was the only Lady Brahman to qualify this year. She said the experience was exciting and also taught her a lot about the sport. “I really improved a lot from when I started. There were a lot of people at the event and a lot of stronger girls,” she explained. Tinajero said she would like more of her teammates to qualify for the state nals next year. She said lifting weights improved her skills in softball as it improved her throwing arm and her bat speed. Her old sister Kim got her involved in weight lifting; she liked the sport, and now plans to lift weights all four years in school. “I think the MVP Award is a great accomplishment. I enjoyed the sport and had fun,” she added. Other weight lifters on the team this year included Sarah Davis, Mercedes Washington, Elisia Garcia, Darby Jones, Lauren Hazellief, Erin Hudson, Hannah Collier, Jessica Drawdy, Khrysta Herndon, Kathy Simmons, Taylor Boyett and Savannah Frady. Off-season workouts will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the football eld of ce weight room, from June 17 through July 30. Smith also thanked Diversi ed Welding for their sponsorship of uniforms and warmup gear for the lifters this year.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Three Okeechobee High School senior baseball players nished their high school career Tuesday as they participated in the Mike Picano Treasure Coast Senior All-Star game at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie. Dalton Murray started the game at catcher for the North squad and played awless defense. He also reached base on a elding error in the second inning. Alex Estremera played four innings at second base and got two at bats. He reached on a walk in the fth inning. He also handled a couple of ground balls awlessly. Jack Radebaugh tossed a scoreless inning of relief as he threw 18 pitches, nine for strikes, and worked around an error behind him in the seventh inning. Coach Jeff Blackstone said he felt the Okeechobee players did well and represented the high school well. "This is a great v enue and it is always a lot of fun to coach on this eld. There were de nitely a lot of mixed emotions, but it was exciting to put on the uniform one last time and I was grateful for that opportunity," he stated. Blackstone is leaving OHS at the end of this week to work in the private sector. A search is under way for his replacement. Murray said it was a lot of fun to play one more time with his high school teammates. He will play at Indian River State College next year. "It was a close game and we battled all day. Things just didn't go our way," he stated. Murray said it was a great atmosphere with a nice quality eld and he was excited to be part of the game. Radebaugh said he felt he did well on the mound and wasn't nervous. He called it a relaxed game and a good way to end his senior year. "It de nitely felt good and the mound was great. I had a chance to show what I have," he said. Estremera said it was a privilege to play on a eld that is used by major league ball players and he thanked all the of cials and coaches that selected him to play in the game. "It was a nice opportunity to come out and have some fun and play against some good competition. I think the pitchers had a bit of an advantage today but everyone has their day," he said. Estremera will play at Indian River State College next year. Former Detroit Tiger and San Francisco Giants out elder Larry Herndon visited with some of the coaches during the game. Herndon helps coach the Lakeland Tigers which had a game on that eld Tuesday night. The Okeechobee players were on the North squad which fell 3-1. Jason Popovich of South Fork was named the game's most valuable player with three base hits and superb play in center eld. The North squad was composed of players from Vero Beach, Okeechobee, Lincoln Park Academy, John Carroll, St. Edwards, Sebastian River, Fort Pierce Central, Fort Pierce Westwood and Masters Academy. The South squad was composed of Port St. Lucie, South Fork, St. Lucie West Centennial, Martin County, Jensen Beach, Treasure Coast and Community Christian. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 century21okeechobee@earthlink.net • 1200 S.
