They fought and they died protecting this country. They gave their lives for their country, fo r their community ... for you. Remember the names of the fallen heroes that are written in stone on the wa r memorial in Flagler Park in downtown Okeechobee. They “gave all.” On Monday, May 27 members of the Okeechobee community gathered in Flagler Park to honor the men and women of the Armed Services who gave their lives for this country. “We must make sure their stories are never forgotten,” said Okeechobee Count y Commission Frank Irby, guest speaker for the ceremonies. “Those who fought for freedom should never be forgotten. The ceremonies, which were hosted b y the Okeechobee American Legion, included music by Canaan Land and honor guard / color guard by Okeechobee High School JROTC students. Boy Scouts from Pack 964 handed out programs and helped clean up the park. More photos from the Memorial Day Services in Okeechobee are online at Florida. Newszap.com. A link to the photos can be found on the Okeechobee News page on Facebook. MEMORIALContinued From Page 1 Resource Of cer Program, said he feels the interaction between students and law enforcement is awesome. “Hopefully, if these kids have an encounter with a deputy down the road, they won’t immediately think they’re bad guys,” he suggested. Sgt. Roberts said the students were responsive in the classes this year. The DARE curriculum will be updated and changed next year to include more material on bullying and peer pressure. All school resource of cers will take refresher courses this summer. Sg.t Roberts praised all of the deputies w ho were at the graduation ceremony. All of the different units at the Sheriffs’ of ce were represented. “These guys are dedicated to their jobs and they do this for the kids. They have to play catch up at work because they wanted to be here for the kids,” he added. Sgt. Roberts said the narcotics unit, street crimes and the gang unit are the most interesting for kids because they want to learn how to stay away from bad in uences. County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper told the crowd that many of his family members have died due to tobacco related illness including his father, his brother and three uncles. He urged the students to get advice from their parents and teachers before they try tobacco. “Smoking is not cool. You can have all the fun you want without a cigarette. One teaspoon of pure nicotine can kill a full-grown A frican elephant,” he added. Mr. Culpepper said kids must also bew are of items sold in stores that are not safe. He said some substances are manufactured in the back of someone’s garage and there is no guarantee what you put in your body is safe. He also recalled his career as a remen and paramedic where he went on numerous calls of overdoses on drugs that led to the death of children and young adults. “There is no pain that a parent can endure that is worse than having to bury your child. Stop and think about your decisions and go to your teachers or your parents and they will give you good advice,” he added. Mr. Holly eld applauded the students for taking part in DARE and reaching graduation without quitting. He said all of the students are winners because they never gave up. He suffers from a form of dwar sm. He is still a good athlete because he competed in the wrestling ring and is capable of bench pressing three times his weight, or over 300 pounds. Mr. Holly eld told the students that they will make tough decisions. He urged them to make the right decision and to uplift other people. “That is what someone who is somebody does. Nobodys always say negative things and do negative things against people and their property,” he added. Mr. Holly eld is a motivational speaker. He is also founder of 3D T.E.A.M. and works with kids to encourage them to do the best they can do. He stands 4 feet 4 inches tall. He helps children to avoid the teasing, low self-esteem and problems that come from bullying, having experienced it himself, throughout his 45-year long life. The DARE poster contest winners this year included Amanda Sparkman at North Elementary, McKenzie Pelham at Seminole, Jason Sutherland at Everglades, Haley Stripling at Osceola, Deborah Sales at Okeechobee Achievement Academy, Rylee Lopez at Okeechobee Christian Academy and Macy Collier at Rock Solid. The DARE public speaking contest winners this year included Elexia Ochoa at North, Maria Sanchez at Seminole, Desiree Daniel at Everglades, Ada Cabo at Osceola, Deborah Sales at OAA, and Chad Reicher at Rock Solid. Elexia Ochoa won the overall county contest. DAREContinued From Page 1 Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyDeputy Demarcus Dixon showed off items used by the sheriffs road patrol unit.

Public ignorant about scandals It is amazing how many Americans are unaware about the White House scandals— Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservative groups, feds looking at Associated Press reporters’ phone record and reading Fox reporters’ email, etc. Half the country doesn’t know what is going on.  What scandals? There are so many and more coming out daily. I think their plan now is to get all the scandals out there so t he Americans will get tired of hearing about s candals and that the rest of the people will s top caring also. I too am amazed that the people living in a free country don’t take more interest in what is going on in their governments from the local level to the federal. If you went into Wal-Mart here in town and asked the local people about what is happening in the local government, how many people could answer that question? People today don’t care until it’s too late. I c an see history repeating itself where count ries are taken over before the people realize it. It is very sad.  I feel that most people’s apathy regarding politics stems from the fact that over all our lives are pretty good. The majority of us have a place to live, food to eat, several forms of recreation and entertainment and a feeling of security. I say this in contrast to other countries, even those whose homes are in foreclosure are very likely to land on t heir feet. They won’t starve, they’ll have a place to live. Yes, there are homeless out t here. Generally, the long-term ones have problems like drugs, alcohol, and/or mental illness of some form. Seldom do whole families stay such a situations, they nd work and help and return to normalcy. Certainly t he homeless group is not going to pay a lot of attention to politics and have negative outlook. A lot of the youth is busy with the discovery of life itself. Education, the oppos ite sex, hobbies, all take precedence over politics for the most part.Teen named sex offender At 14, I am not sure that our sexual predilections are very well de ned. We often see that some miscreant or other was “molested” as a child and that has contributed to whatever bad deeds they have themselves been responsible for as an adult. I have seen this declared in child molestation cases. In those teen years a 14-year-old has a lot of hero worship and role model ideas about 18-year-olds. Example the freshmen vs. senior in high school. The wanting to belong, peer pressure, etc. On the other hand, 50-75 years ago it was not unusual for 14-year-olds who have passed puberty to enter into marriage. Bottom line is that our society has its laws and we follow the rule of law which is important.  The Romeo and Juliet law may come into play here. Florida’s age of consent is 18, though the law contains a provision allowing 16and 17-year-olds to consent to having sex with someone age 16 to 23. To qualify for removal under “Romeo and Juliet,” the victim must have been at least 14 years old and the offender no more than four years older. The sex must have been consensual, and the offender must not have additional sex offense convictions after the original offense. Nancy Argenziano introduced the Senate bill in 2007 after she realized that the sex offender database — aimed to expose the “real dirt-bags out there” — also targeted some offenders caught up in young love.  A minor is not legally able to give consent, even if willing to; therefore any “consent” given is not legal nor will it be legally recognized. The statutes are broken down into categories based upon age: 12 and under, felony capitol offense. 12-16 felony. 16-18 felony, possibly eligible for Romeo & Juliet law exemption.  In the case I believe you are talking about, which was on TV, the 14-year-old girl and her parents pressed charges. I believe for “Romeo and Juliet” to apply, the younger teen would not press charges. Bottom line, parents should make sure their teenagers— male and female—know that if they engage in sexual activities with younger teens they can wind up in prison and labeled a sex offender. How many times does it happen that a teen couple breaks up and the “lover scorned” wants revenge? There are many reasons to encourage young people to wait until they are older before they become sexually active, and the fact that it is against the law is one of those reasons. Scholarships appreciatedI would like to thank the community for the wonderful support of the students at Okeechobee High School This community once again gave a tremendous dollar amount of scholarships to the graduating class of 2013. A total of $703,125 was donated by this community. One hundred sixty-one seniors received a scholarship on Scholarship night. A grand total for all scholarships received was $2,420,117.

Kiwanis Club guest speakerJill Rogers spoke recently in front of the Kiwanis Club of Okeechobee about the many youth services provided by Communities In Schools Police Athletic League of Okeechobee. The organization has been in existence since 1998. Rogers is the Executive Director. Rogers’ main focus of her presentation was to communicate the wide variety of programs provided by the organization including the Okeechobee Achievement Academy which supports several programs including mentoring, case management, anger management and academic assistance. The most improved facet of CIS-PAL over the years has been the ability to switch focus on the students rather than numbers. When asked what aspect of the program needs the most improving, she was quick to say the mentoring program. Currently there are 113 students in the mentoring program with only 33 mentors. CIS-PAL has planned a fundraising chicken barbecue to be held at the Brahman Theater parking lot on June 7. Meal tickets are $8 a piece.

How are we doing? Let us know by emailing feedback@newszap.com or call your editor.Community Service Through Journalism 5 Okeechobee News May 29, 2013 Stakeholders and the general public will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft recommendations at public workshops. A workshop in Okeechobee is planned for Friday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to noon at the SFWMD Okeechobee Service Center, 3800 N.W. 16th Blvd. Suite A. Public comments may also be submitted on the land assessment website through J une 10. In addition, the draft recommendations will be presented at the June meeting of the Water Resources Advisory Commission (WRAC). Final recommendations for the Kissimmee/Okeechobee region will be presented to the full Governing Board at its June 13 meeting. The purpose of the land assessment is to ensure that each parcel owned by the district supports the agency’s core mission of balancing and improving ood control, w ater quality, natural systems, and water supply. The rst phase of the assessment is a review of 750,000 acres of fee-owned lands — properties in which the agency has full ownership rights. This phase is scheduled for completion by September 2013. A comprehensive review of non-fee-owned lands is scheduled to start around late 2013. Land use recommendations include the following: Kissimmee River Restoration Area – PearceLockett Estate ParcelStaff recommends the disposal, exchange, or surplus of lands lying outside of the 100-year oodplain so long as the site remains open to the public. Pool E/Paradise Run/Telex Marsh outparcelStaff recommends that any such portion of the site for which Okeechobee County has no interest in managing under the existing lease, be approved for disposal, exchange, or surplus subject to an acceptable conservation easement along the bank of the oxbow channel. Pool E/Paradise Run/ Pasture parcel and Lake Okeechobee – North of LakeDisposal, exchange, or surplus of the district’s fee-simple interest, on those southernmost parcels in this assessment area. Seek opportunities to exchange lands in the northern most parcels not needed for the implementation of Basin Management Action Plan for other lands within the basin. Land within the Paradise Run Floodplain : Retain ownership and management of lands within the Paradise Run oodplain, along with an adequate buffer to bene t land management operations and to facilitate public access. Nubbin SloughStaff recommends continuing the completion of the stormwater treatment cell. Staff further recommends developing dispersed water management and public recreation features on the northern portion of the site. Staff recommends the disposal, exchange, or surplus of the portions of the property outside of the project footprint that do not contribute to the district’s core mission. County Boat RampStaff recommends negotiating a transfer of the fee-simple interest to another public entity or organization; rst to the current managing entity if they express an interest, with a restrictive covenant to keep the primary use of the site as a boat ramp facility, and an access easement that allows the district to continue to use the facility to launch watercraft. If no other public entity or organization has an interest in accepting the ownership subject to suitable terms, then staff recommends that the use and management of the site continue as-is. Sportsman’s Village ParcelNorthern boat ramp parcel—Staff recommends negotiating a transfer of the feesimple interest to another public entity or organization; rst to the current managing entity if they express an interest, with a restrictive covenant to keep the primary use of the site as a boat ramp facility, and an access easement that allows the district to continue to use the facility to launch watercraft. If no other public entity or organization has an interest in accepting the ownership subject to suitable terms, then staff recommends that the use and management of the site continue as-is. Southern wetland parcel —Staff recommends the continuation of the current use as a littoral wetland. Southern wetland parcel—Staff recognizes that this parcel lies within the Herbert Hoover Dike and consists of littoral wetlands that had to be acquired as part of the Central and Southern Flood Control project to obtain the necessary rights in the Lake’s littoral zone to support the water level regulation schedule of Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee IslandsSeek opportunities to negotiate the transfer of ownership and management to another public organization, while retaining a owage easement with appropriate conditions to protect water quality and areas of native vegetation. Lemkin CreekStaff recommends continuing the management and development of the project, and to seek opportunities for acquiring the land necessary for completing the development of the project. Lakeside RanchesRecommendation: Staff recommends continuing the management and ownership of the Lakeside Ranch – Phase I, as is. Staff recommends continuing the implementation of a dispersed water management in the Phase II area. Grassy Island/Taylor CreekLand East of Northwest 50th St. continue the use and management of the property asis. Land west of Northwest 50th St: defer until there is a recommendation from a feasibility study currently being conducted on the western portion of the property to evaluate alternatives or options for the site including water quality or water storage options, or conservation. Chandler Slough Lofton Frontage ParcelStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is. Ft. Basinger ParcelStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is. Lamb Island – County Road 68 ParcelsStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is, for now. Staff recognizes that the residential lot with a house on it is being used as of cer housing. Staff also recognizes that the other parcel has a trailhead and provides land management access to the swamp. Staff should re-evaluate this property for the continued ownership and use of the site if the parcel with the house is no longer needed as of cer housing. Riverwoods Floodplain ParcelStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is, for now. Kissimmee River Pool E/ Paradise Run (except individual parcels)Staff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is. Kissimmee River– Pool E / Paradise Run–Yates Marsh ParcelStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is, for now. Kissimmee River Pool D River Acres Floodplain AreaStaff recommends that the use and management of the property continue as-is, for now. Staff recognizes that, because most of the site falls within the 5-year oodplain, it must remain in district ownership. It is unlikely that a successful restoration of this over-drained area could be accomplished in a manner that is feasible from a cost-bene t perspective. Staff should re-evaluate this property for the continued ownership and use of the site once all the post-restoration monitoring requirements for the Kissimmee River are ful lled. The complete draft recommendations are available for review on the district’s land assessment website at www.sfwmd. gov/landassessment. SFWMDContinued From Page 1

Okeechobee Forecast Governor Rick Scott Tuesday signed SB 52 at Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School, banning the use of wireless communications devices while driving. Governor Scott said, “As a father and a grandfather, texting while driving is something that concerns me when my loved ones are on the road. The 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are known as the deadliest days on the road for teenagers. We must do everything we can at the state level to keep our teenagers and everyone on our roads safe. I cannot think of a better time to of cially sign this bill into law.” The bill signed May 28 prohibits a person from manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols or other characters into a wireless communications device. This includes text messaging, emailing and instant messaging through smart phones. Governor Scott was by joined representatives from AT&T, Verizon Communications, The Florida Department of Transportation, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and Miami Children’s Hospital, along with students and teachers from Alonzo Mourning Senior High School who signed their names to pledge to not text while driving. Senator Nancy Detert said, “I am thrilled that Governor Scott has supported the legislature and signed this bill. Texting while driving is an issue we see on our roads every day, and the distractions it causes has negatively affected too many Floridians. Thanks to the support of the Governor and the Legislature, this new law can now lead the way to making our roads safer for Florida drivers and will help teens to form safe driving habits.” Representative Doug Holder said, “I am proud to join the Governor today in signing SB 52. Not only will this new law encourage responsible driving, it will teach our youngest drivers to put away their phones and concentrate on the road. This will protect Florida families across the state, which is something we should all be thankful for.” Marshall Criser, AT&T FloridaState President said, “We applaud Governor Rick Scott for signing this important legislation. Through the commitment of Sen. Nancy Detert and Representative Doug Holder, as well as the Governor and the Legislative leadership, Florida has reinforced the message that texting while driving is a deadly habit. It’s a simple message. No text is worth dying for, It Can Wait.” Julie Jones, Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director said, “Nothing is so important that it is worth risking your life by sending a text message while behind the wheel of a vehicle. This legislation will help send the message to all drivers that they need to keep their eyes on the road, not on their cell phone.” Ananth Prasad, Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation said, “The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) applauds Governor Scott for signing legislation to ban texting while driving. This action will be an important step to reduce distracted driving on Florida’s roadways.” Beth Bailey, Director, Government/Education, Verizon Wireless said, “Verizon is urging to ensuring our customers and all wireless communication device users make responsible decisions behind the wheel; responsible driving should be everyone’s rst priority. We are proud to join Gov. Scott and our industry today to stress to drivers of every generation, across the state of Florida, that when you’re behind the wheel it can wait.” Dr. Narendra Kini, President and CEO o f Miami Children’s Hospital said, “As a leader in pediatric care, Miami Children’s Hospital wholeheartedly supports the new law banning texting while driving. Making this activity illegal sends a clear message about the associated dangers and will reduce the number of vehicular traumas in our state, providing a safer environment for our children and for all.” Gov.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News The Yearling Middle School basketball program honored their top players with awards Wednesday in an awards banquet held in the school cafeteria that was catered by the 1 Stop Party Shop of Okeechobee. Coaches Tammy Wright for the girls team and Mike Wharin for the boys team gave a recap of their team’s season and handed out certi cates to all the players. Coach Wright said the Lady Bulls did not have a strong record but were a close-knit team that really stuck together and worked hard despite some adversity this past season. “We were 100-percent heart in every game. The girls never gave up and because of that I think we are all winners,” she told the crowd. Coach Wharin said the job presented its challenges this year as he took over in midseason from Efrain Ochoa. He said it took him a couple of games to realize what each player could do. “I had great assistants, Myron Refoure and Marcel Richardson and I think they are w onderful men for donating their time to help me,” he explained. The Bulls nished 9-3, this year and have a solid corps of returning players. They won’t be as tall this year but will be athletic. “Defense is something we pride ourselves on. We’ll still be the fun and gun next year. Offensive still has a ways to go but we feel w e can grow in that area,” he added. Raylee Coleman and Alix Blankenship w ere named Co-MVP for the girls team. Shy’tria Ash and Megan Hargraves shared the Defensive Player of the year award. Alarra Boswell and Maliah Wright shared the Most Improved Player award. Denise Garcia w on the Yearling Award. Garcia earned praise because she started as a team manager and didn’t stop until she earned a spot on the team. “I felt it was a good season because the coach showed us a lot of things. I didn’t make the team at rst but I really wanted to play and I was really happy when I nally got w hat I earned,” she added. Blankenship said she was excited to win the MVP. She called basketball an awesome sport that she loves to play. She said the team w as like sisters this year. “I think the season went okay. We could have won more games but we stuck together as a team.” Ash said she appreciated the Defensive award. She said she played with con dence and didn’t let anything bother her. She looks forward to playing high school ball. “We motivated each other and pushed each other this year. I loved helping the team out,” she said. Wright said training, conditioning and hard practices helped the team learn a lot this year. She said the team won together and lost together. She said it meant a lot to her to receive the Most Improved Player award. “I feel more con dent in myself now and I feel I can get better in basketball,” she added. Boswell said she felt really honored to win the Most Improved award. She said the girls worked well as a team and that she got a lot out of the experience. She plans to continue playing basketball for OHS. Hargraves said she has received the Defensive award for two years in a row. She always had a lot of energy on the court and enjoyed playing the sport. She intends to focus on volleyball and softball when she reaches high school. Coleman said the team worked hard all year and she felt pretty honored to be recognized by the coaches. “The season at times was kind of frustrating but we worked through it.” Raylee plans to focus on volleyball and softball in high school. On the boy’s side, Antawyn Fludd won the MVP and Defensive Player of the year award for the boys team. Gabe Greseth won the Yearling Award. Lamar Williams won a Defensive Player and Top Rebounder award. Juan ‘Yae Ford won the Mr. Hustle Award. Fludd said if it were up to him all of his teammates would share the MVP award. He thanked his coaches and teammates for their encouragement and helping him stay focused on the game. Fludd broke his hand playing football and that slowed him a little on the basketball court this year. “I think this award should go to everyone. I just wanted to win every game,” he added. Williams said he felt good about his award. He works out ve days per week and jogs at least two miles per day to stay in shape for both basketball and football, where he is an accomplished running back. He said he will work hard to lead the team in eighth grade next year. “I feel good about the award, I’m ready to come back next year and start all over again,” he added. He plans to attend at least two football camps this summer to improve his skills. Ford said he hopes to play varsity basketball next year. He said he wants to work harder next year to reach his potential. He is competing to be the starter at QB for the JV football team. He said basketball might be his best sport. “I think I can go to college and play if I keep working. I like to pass the ball. Once I learn to be more of a scorer I will be much better,” he added. He praised Coach Richardson for helping him improve his skills in both sports. Boys who received certi cates included Robert Futch, Antawyn Fludd, Zachary Kielbasa, Kysell Richardson, Gabe Greseth, Jesse Mond, Janavius Futch, Juan’yae Ford, Andrevious Stallworth, and Lamar Williams. B Team players honored included Zachary Wharin, Devonte Luellman, Scoop Morelane, Elton Pelt, Blake Grif n, Garrett Causey, Dakota Pries, Jacob Aleman, Raafe Edwards, Jose Rodriguez, Corey Coleman, Brayson Harvey, Malcolm Chambers, Aden Romas and Larry Boswell. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 CFA022585 CAC1817236 Echols Now Offers A/C & Refrigeration Spring Savings 15 Point Tune-up Only $6499 SINCE 1975 Hot Deals to keep You Cool !!

MurphyOkeechobee News Assistant Superintendent of Schools Mary Hurley was honored by friends, family and colleagues last week as she begins her retirement from the school system on July 1. Ms. Hurley said she was honored and humbled by the large turnout for the reception held at the Okeechobee School Board Of ces. “I’m so glad that so many people took the time to come out, share some experiences, and remember the 27 years I’ve spent working with the county. I’m very pleased with the turnout,” she told the Okeechobee News afterward. The walls of the school board of ces were lined with quilts that Ms. Hurley has made herself over the years with various educational messages on each design. Superintendent of Schools Ken Kenworthy saluted Hurley for her leadership, her dedication to the school system, and the mentoring she provided him. She gave Kenworthy his rst administrative job at Yearling Middle School. Ms. Hurley graduated from the University of Northern Colorado and taught school in rural Colorado for 14 years. When her family moved out of state to Michigan, Minnesota and eventually, Florida, she began to consider relocating to the sunshine state. In the summer of 1986 she visited Florida and attended the First Florida Teach In where she met Ann Manson, who interviewed her and offered her a job in Okeechobee. Her rst job was at the Okeechobee 5th and 6th grade center. She taught for eight years and then moved into administration. Hurley served as Principal at Everglades Elementary School for two years and at Yearling Middle School for three years and then moved to the District Ofces in 2000. “I planned to come here for a few years and then move on but suddenly Okeechobee became home to me. The school employees became my family. I think things happen for a reason but Okeechobee became a good t for me and it has been a wonderful career and life here,” she added. Ms. Hurley explained that the job of Assistant Superintendent over Instructional is a challenging job because of almost daily changes in curriculum mandated by the state. She called the job the most “ uid” she has had in her career, “You don’t write too much in stone because it changes so often.” Most of her job is as support for the schools explaining to administrators and teachers the changes in curriculums and to make sure they get the resources they need to achieve success. “I’ve loved the job. It is ever changing and has kept me busy all the time. I’ve never been bored in this job,” she added. Ms. Hurley plans to do some travelling in her retirement and rst on the list is a trip to Minnesota for a cousin’s wedding. She also plans to continue quilting. Most of all she looks forward to doing the things she wants to do. The job of Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services will soon be advertised and could be lled as early as this summer.

It will be published in the June 5, 2013 edition.Deadline: May 29, 2013 20 Okeechobee News May 29, 2013 By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News The Offensive line continues to stand out as Okeechobee spring football nished its third week of practice this week. The team is prepared to play the Purple White scrimmage at Brahman stadium, with both varsity and 8th grade games next Friday, May 31. Coach Chris Branham is always nervous for game day and notes while the team is a long way from being ready to play a game against another school, they have made a lot of progress in recent practices. "The Lord takes care of those who serve him and us not playing a game is probably a blessing this year," he stated. He has taken the opportunity to spend more time to work on things and fundamentals and learning the play book and schemes. The defense is different and the offense has new formations as well. "The lack of a game with Glades Day gives us more time to work on things and gives more reps to the players. We hope to pack the stands Friday and end the school year on the right note," he explained. Branham said the offensive line has looked good with four returning starters. Jefferson Davis has really impressed in a bid to start at offensive tackle. At 6'6", and 208 pounds, he has the physical tools to really make an impact this year. He would like to add 10-20 pounds this off season. The team also added veteran offensive line coach Glenn Attaway back to the staff this spring to help improve the line. Davis said his height can be an advantage on the offensive line because he gets more explosion off the ball. He said the team is intense and competitive and has worked hard this spring. "We have a whole new squad this year with a lot of new players doing things they never did before. I think all of the players have increased their effort and have taken on more responsibility," he said. Most of the skill position battles continue. There is no starter at QB yet. Wide receiver spots are wide open and running back appears to be a position of depth. Khalil Smith and Daniel Nunez have pushed Adrian Minondo for the job as primary running back. Most of the jobs on the defensive side of the ball remain up for grabs. Tyrell Taylor has played some defensive end, Minondo has looked good at linebacker and even Cory Vickers has gotten looks at linebacker. Tyrone Peterson and Tyrone Joseph have also gained some playing time. G.W. Jarriel appears locked in at one defensive back position. Devon Wigfall also appears to have earned a spot at defensive tackle. There are 54 kids on the varsity side and 33 eighth graders in camp. If you know a player, you can save some money for the purple white game. Advance tickets are $10 which includes admission to the game and a Mexican plate dinner. The night of the game the admission and dinner will cost $15. In off-the- eld recruiting, Florida Gator Coach Joker Phillips visited the OHS campus Thursday to meet Eddie Neal to talk about a possible scholarship. Neal was offered a scholarship by Alcorn State last week. He could play QB or even wide receiver this fall. Small schools like Stetson, Ava Maria, Webber International and Mississippi College have shown interest in several players like Cory Vickers, Bobby Jo Garza, Minondo, and Cody Walker. Class of 2013 leader DJ Washington has got some offers from Florida Atlantic and Bethune Cookman. A smaller school in Alabama offered him a scholarship earlier. Webber offered Jack Radebaugh a football scholarship but he also has baseball opportunities to ponder.
