Concrete plant seeks to use 2.4 acres for materials storage; local residents objectBy Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Okeechobee Asphalt and Ready Mixed Concrete will have to wait until the next City Council meeting in July before a decision is made in their application to rezone and change the future land use map on ten single-family residential lots in Deans Court. Several residents and company representatives offered different opinions on the impacts this application would have on the neighborhood. Residents said they were concerned about sand and dust problems while the company claimed they have been good neighbors for 35 years. The property measures close to 2.4 acres and will be zoned industrial. The lots are located in the 700 and 800 block of Northwest Ninth Street. The company plans to use the property for the storage of supplies and materials. The plan is to install a small wall and landscaping to buffer the impacts to a nearby residence.

By Katrina ElskenOkeechobee News Do you live in a ood zone? The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has updated ood zone maps for Okeechobee County. At the June 14 meeting of the Okeechobee County Commission, Okeechobee County Planning Director Bill Royce explained that Okeechobee County participates in the National Flood Insurance Program. "After 30 years, FEMA has updated the ood maps for Okeechobee County," he said. In September, FEMA will host an open house in Okeechobee so residents can review the new maps and compare the new maps to the old maps. There will be a period to appeal if a landowner disputes a map. "Then, we will start the process of adopting the maps," Mr. Royce explained. "Updated ood maps will re ect some man made changes and recent storm history," said county attorney John Cassels. He said FEMA did new studies to re ect changes made in the past 30 years around Lake Okeechobee, Taylor Creek and Nubbin Slough. "There will be some changes," Mr. Royce said. "Some, who were not in the ood zone on the old maps may be in the ood zone now." "There are also other changes going on with the ood insurance program," he continued. "The rates will be going up. They are changing the national ood insurance program." "At some point people will want to see if their ood zone determination has changed," he added. He said in order to participate in the ood insurance program, the county must require the nished oor of any new construction is above the 100-year ood levels. Most homeowners' insurance does not cover ooding, said Mr. Royce. The National Flood Insurance Program offers ood insurance with rates varying by ood zone. Those who don't live in a ood zone can purchase ood insurance if they wish. Mr. Royce said there will be insurance experts at the open house to answer questions. "Big parts of our county are in ood areas," he said. "We can't just say no construction in ood zones.' But we do have to make sure they build up off the ground." "For the government to have an insurance program, they want some assurance they won't be throwing money away due to poor construction practices," Mr. Royce said. "Are we going to require those who build up to put in a swale so they don't ood the house next door?" asked Okeechobee County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper. "We pretty much have in our regulations now that you aren't supposed to be ooding your neighbor," replied Mr. Royce. "Our engineer spends a lot of time every year looking at properties to see if there is a cause and effect and see how it could be mitigated." He said it is sometimes water from a ho meowner's property runs off to a vacant lo t next door. When someone buys the lot an d builds on it, there is nowhere for that runof f to go, so it now stays on the rst homeown er's property. That is not a case of the ne w neighbor " ooding" the rst homeowner, h e said, since the water did not come from th e new neighbor's property.

Fireworks I was so happy to read that Okeechobee will have reworks this year and they will be down at the lake. I love watching reworks over the water. And I am glad they are having it at Okee-Tantie because that park belongs to the public and we should have more events there. We pay for it with our taxes so why not use it for more public events? And since the reworks will be shot over the water, that means folks who have boats can go out on the lake and watch from there, which is really nice. So my appreciation for all involved in organizing this community event!Dogs loose My dog and I were recently attacked by the neighbor’s pit bull. We were near my mailbox and the neighbor’s dog didn’t think we should be. My dog was on a leash, hers wasn’t. The person who owns him is the only one who can go to her mailbox without fear. Times sure have changed.  There used to be a pit in our neighborhood that would wait across the street and chase you back in the house. It was a race to get to the car. It caught my pants leg one day and that was all she wrote. I got in the car, took out my pistol and shot it where it stood. Left it laying where I shot it and went to town. When I came back they had collected the dog and called the police. Guess who was on my side? We had warned the people twice and they did nothing. We also used to have a pit what would hide and come after my little dog when we took her out. The dog was friendly to people but not other animals. The owners said they tried to keep the dog chained, but it kept slipping the chain. Well, one day it managed to grab my little dog and I had to beat it off with a stick. Do I need to say after that we didn’t have a problem anymore. We have always tried to let the neighbors know if there is a problem with one of their animals, but if they ignore and do nothing then all bets are off and anything goes. Dogs can often be sweet to people and aggressive to other dogs. One homeowner on my street has two big dogs and never closes the gate so the dogs run out into the street when anyone passes. If I walk by there alone, it’s ne. But one day I was taking care of a friend’s small dog and took it with me on a walk and those dogs ran out into the street, barking and snarling. I had my hands full trying to hold onto the little dog and fend off the two big dogs. Fortunately another neighbor heard me yelling and came out to help. Of course, the owners of the big dogs were not home. And of course they continue to leave that gate open even though I have complained about the dogs.County budget Remember the sheriff is the only person who decides to give his employees a raise or not. I agree with Mr. Domer. The county is broke. The county had to borrow money from the reserves for the last three years to make the yearly budget. To replace that money, they are going to have to raise our taxes but there will be no increase in available money for the county. The total tax rate for this county is equal to or greater than the counties on the coast. The taxpayers of this county are having to pay for it all because there is very little industry here. Industry isn’t moving here because the tax rate is too high for what they get. This county is in a bad position because industry wouldn’t move because of the tax rate, the taxpayers are almost maxed out, and everybody wants more and more from the county which is broke. The county government needs to reduce it’s size to what we can afford when our tax rate is at a competitive rate with other counties around us so we could attract new businesses here. Once we get industry here they could pay for all the extra services people want from the county. The problem is no one is willing to give up anything to get industry here, they just want more and more so this county will continue to tax the current taxpayer’s to the max until something bad happens than we will be headed into bankruptcy.  The county is going to build another building instead of spending the money on the one thing that the county owns that could be an income maker, Okee-Tantie.  What needs to be done is combine the county and the city departments. There’s only one town in this county, it doesn’t need both a city and county department. And really, everything should be combined when you stop and think about it. Support appreciatedWe would like to thank the following individuals, organizations and businesses for their generous support, contributions and donations for helping us replace our family vehicle which was recently stolen and destroyed. They held two fundraisers for us during the past two months and we thank them from the bottom of our heart. Marvin and Cindy Arnold and the employees at Barracudas Sports Grill, Laura and the girls at Butch’s Fish Camp, Bubba’s Redneck Yacht Club, the Buckhead Ridge Women of the Moose Club, Red & The Pressure Point Band and Wayne Purvis for donating the entertainment, Mitchell Arnold for his delicious swamp cabbage, Marvin & D-Ray for grilling the best BBQ we ever had and The Golden Corral for donating those world famous rolls. To everyone in this wonderful community who purchased a dinner, donated or bought an auction item or volunteered their time or services, words could never express how much we appreciate what ya’ll did for us. We both are blessed to live in a community like Okeechobee that helps those in need. Thank you very, very much! Rita Mae & James “ Dobo” EldridgeMarch for babies efforts bring big rewards to babiesEvery Spring, the Okeechobee community gathers in Flagler Park to raise money for the March of Dimes at the annual March for Babies fundraising event. In 2013, over $46,000 was raised locally by our participants and sponsors. The following excerpt from the March of Dimes 2012 Annual Report, authored by March of Dimes President Jennifer L. Howse, and March of Dimes Chair, Laverne H. Council, can give our community a reminder about why their participation is so crucial: Nearly 4 million babies were born in the United States in 2012, and the March of Dimes contributed to better health for each and every one. Our research advances over the past 75 years are still improving health and saving lives for babies today. Polio once killed or crippled tens of thousands of children. Today, thanks to vaccines developed with March of Dimes support, this disease has been eliminated in most of the world. PKU was once the leading cause of inherited intellectual disability. Today, newborn screening tests developed with funding from the March of Dimes detect PKU and other metabolic disorders so that early treatmen t can save lives. Thanks to advocacy by our volunteers, every newborn has access to thes e lifesaving tests. Neural tube defects (NTDs) — certain defects of the brain and spine — used to caus e serious health and developmental problems in babies. The March of Dimes national folic acid campaign led to forti cation of grain products in 1998 with the B vitamin folic acid, and sinc e then our nation has seen a 26 percent reduction in NTDs. Respiratory distress syndrome was onc e the leading cause of infant deaths. Today, it is routinely treated using surfactant, an approach pioneered through March of Dimes research. In 2012, the March of Dimes built on this lifesaving legacy. In the decade since the launch of our national Prematurity Campaign, rates o f pre-term birth have reached a 10-year low. W e estimate that since 2006, at least 120,000 babies have been spared the consequences of an early birth, and our country has saved at leas t $2 billion in excess health care costs. We achieved these campaign results through sustained leadership and partnership across [multiple fronts including the following]:  We have led the drive to eliminate earl y elective deliveries before 39 completed weeks of pregnancy. This work includes quality improvement initiatives with nearly 100 prominent hospitals, and a national consumer education campaign called Healthy Babies ar e Worth the Wait. In 2012, the Department o f Health and Human Services built on this approach by launching Strong Start, an initiativ e to improve birth outcomes.  The March of Dimes is reaching women with community programs that help them ge t better prenatal care and adopt a healthy lifestyle. We also bring information and comfor t to families through our NICU Family Support project in 128 hospitals. Founded in 1938 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the March of Dimes has no w completed 75 years of service to the American people. Babies born in 2012 have the bes t chance of any generation to be born health y due in no small measure to the historic wor k of the March of Dimes, and to our continuing mission commitment. Clearly, those advances are well worth th e short walk that we all take every spring for th e March of Dimes! Plans are already underwa y for March for Babies 2014.

residential would be more consistent with the neighborhood. City planner Bill Brisson told the council this was a critical meeting for this project. “This has always been residential. The community long had the anticipation that this w ould be developed into residential use w ith no indication they would be changed into industrial,” he said. Mr. Brisson said if the city wanted to make the entire stretch industrial that would be appropriate because that would be a policy decision. Councilman Dowling Watford suggested land near a railroad track is appropriate for industrial use. “I know we can’t put any conditions on this. Is there a mechanism that if the owner says I’ll put screening or landscaping in, can’t we request that?” he asked. Mr. Brisson said they could discuss that at the site plan and review meeting. Mr. Watford said the plant is already there. He noted the residents are impacted regardless of what happens with this application. Councilman Mike O’Connor said it looks like the entire stretch of Northwest Ninth Street is becoming industrial. “This seems like a pattern. We need to think what we are trying to do here. Trucks use that street and it will be quite a busy place,” he added. He compared this street to Southwest Second A venue which saw a trend of commercial uses in a very short time several years ago. Resident Bruce Snell said he didn’t feel it w as right to make this neighborhood industrial. “They could put anything there,” he said. “Now I hear they don’t have to put in a wall or buffer. We are being overlooked but we are concerned about our community.” Mr. Snell complained that concrete materials blow onto the entire community. Company owner Robert Gent said the company has not received any complaints and said they try to be a good neighbor. He said the Florida Department of Environmental Protection inspects the property regularly. He said the street is over 90 percent industrial. He noted the company tried to erect a w all on the property but were told by city code enforcement that the code did not allow the wall. “If you were to build a home or multifamily that would be the last property in the city you would use,” he suggested. He said the company has done a great job improving the property and its appearance. He said he doubted it would affect the Missionary Baptist Church nearby. The company employs 20 people with plans to increase to 30 jobs in the near future. Resident Dave Thomas said he has watched them mix concrete and saw it land on people standing down the street. He mentioned a nearby resident who has several illnesses that might be affected by this business. “This company has shown me they have no concern about the community. When the wind blows you can feel the sand cutting you as it comes across the street,” he added. “There is no way he can say everything is ice cream and candy.” Mayor Kirk said he would not support the application. He suggested the council adopt the recommendation of their planner. Another option would be to see if a wall can be built there to help the community. “To me single-family residences have priority. That house has been there. It may have gotten rundown but Mr. Snell has come in there and xed it to have his home there. Everyone wants business to grow, but I just don’t think it’s a good mix here. I would like the concerns of the community addressed,” he added. In other actions the council approved a continued moratorium on the collection of city public works, law enforcement facilities and re impact fees for another year. The mayor presented a ve-year service award to city police Patrolman Ryan Holroyd and a 10-year service award to Fire ghter Adam Crum. The mayor also issued a proclamation for the week of June 17-21 for “Small Business Week.” Council also approved plans for a 44space parking lot at the northwest corner of Northeast Sixth Street and Northeast First Avenue to accommodate a new tness center. The council voted to approve a Florida highway beauti cation council grant, landscape construction and maintenance agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation. Medians in the unpaved areas of the right of way on State Roads 15, U.S. 98/U.S. 441 will be enhanced with landscaping under the grant through the Florida Highway Beauti cation Council applied for by Okeechobee Main Street. The city agreed to provide labor to install the landscaping. They also approved a bid with Clean Sweep & Vac Inc. of Stuart for $24,996 to sweep city streets for the next ve years. The bid was $600 less than the rm that provided the service. Council also scheduled a workshop with the City Planning Board to discuss limited agriculture uses in areas zoned holding. Gary Ritter of the South Florida Water Management District reported water is coming down the Kissimmee River into Lake Okeechobee. The lake level stood at 13.9 feet this week. Mr. Ritter said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ideally likes the level at 12.5 feet. Discharges out the coastal estuaries have led to protests from the coasts. State Senator Joe Negron recently requested a senate hearing to discuss Lake Okeechobee. Mr. Ritter also reported that Melissa Meeker resigned her job as SFWMD executive director. Ernie Barnett was named the temporary executive director last Thursday. Interviews will be planned for a permanent executive director. The County Coalition for Lake Okeechobee is scheduled for this Friday at the Okeechobee Courthouse and should include a spirited discussion about fresh water releases. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Okeechobee News June 21, 2013 Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyRobert Gent addressed the council about a rezoning request to support his business, Okeechobee Asphalt and Ready Mixed Concrete, at Tuesday’s meeting.

He has started giving away walking/running shoes to those who promise to walk at least 20 minutes a day. The shoes are donated by triathletes. Dr. Underill competes in triathlons and he noticed that many triathletes dispose of running shoes when they still look new. “Serious triathletes go through a lot of shoes,” he said. “About every six weeks, they get new shoes.” He started collecting donations of “like new” footwear and has collected 100 pairs so far. “I will give these shoes to people with health risks if they agree to walk every day for 20 minutes,” he said. Dr. Underill heads up walks in Okeechobee three days a week. He is in town on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The rest of the week, shoe recipients must promise to walk on their own. When the weather turned rainy, Dr. Underill received permission for the group to walk at Walmart, since Okeechobee does not have an indoor mall. Those interested in the program can leave a message for Dr. Underill at 772-532-5969.

The term of chairman is one year. Brian Yablonski of Tallahassee was elected to the one-year term of vice chairman. While serving on the commission since 2004, he has played a key role in building a strong record of conservation for all Floridians.

Adams, along with some of his staff at Adams Ranch, have provided the opportunity for FWC youth deer hunts on the property for the past two hunting seasons, providing three hunts to 15 youth. "The property is known for its superb deer hunting and, besides that, offers to the youth hunters over their hunt date weekend amenities such as lodging, shing ponds and a tree house," Youth Hunting Program coordinator Jeff Lawlor said. Adams says he really enjoys giving hunting opportunities to youth on his family's fourth-generation working cattle ranch and loves meeting and talking at length to the kids and their parents about Florida's rich history of ranching, cows and cattle drives. Adams has received numerous awards over the years in conservation, agriculture and cattle farming and has penned such novels as "A Cattlemen's Backcountry Florida," "A Child's Guide to Florida Wildlife," "A Florida Cattle Ranch," and "Beautiful & Rare Birds of Florida."

Adams receives Youth Hunting Landowner of the Year award Whether you are shooting reworks in y our drive-way or watching a public display, y ou could be at risk of having some hearing damage, according to Boys Town Ear, Nose and Throat Institute. Fireworks produce a sound output that is in the 150 to 175 decibel range. There are two things to note when considering whether or not reworks will have the potential to cause hearing loss: First is the distance a person is from the sound source. Similar to a ripple from a stone being thrown into the water diminishes further and further away from the splash, sound is less likely to affect your hearing the further you are positioned from the rework explosion. The second thing to consider is how loud the rework actually is. The World Health Organization recommends that adults not be exposed to more than 140 decibels of peak sound pressure. For children, the recommendation is 120 decibels. If you are dealing with a rework that explodes at 170 decibels, you would have to stand 15 to 20 meters away before you are at a safe limit. Children would have to stand 50 to 60 meters away from that same rework. Infants should not be exposed to reworks, because they generally experience the greatest amount of sound pressure. "You can think about watering trees," said Nathan Williams, AuD., Audiologist at Boys Town Ear, Nose and Throat Institute. "When you put your thumb over the mouth of the hose, the diameter of the opening is smaller and the pressure of the water is greater. The diameter of a child's ear canal is smaller, and thus the sound pressure built up in a child's ear canal is great, resulting in a perceived louder sound by the child. Exposure to loud sounds can result in the following: Tinnitus ringing in the ears, which can be a symptom of hearing loss. Temporary threshold shift slight decrease in hearing, which usually only lasts 24 hours. Permanent hearing loss a change in hearing that is permanent and cannot be restored.Protect your earsRoll down foam ear plugs or headphones that sit over top of the ear can offer some protection against the loud noise. If you will be setting off reworks or are watching nearby, both roll-down foam plugs and headphones are strongly recommended for maximum hearing protection. If a person suspects that they have had a change in hearing, a hearing test is advised. This is done so that if changes have occurred, the doctor can determine if it is a temporary or permanent hearing loss. Although reworks are exciting, it is important to realize they can be dangerous to your hearing. With the right precautions you and your family and friends can enjoy a happy and safe Fourth of July. Fireworks can lead to hearing loss

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An Okeechobee man’s arrest W ednesday for allegedly using a bogus Social Security number to get a job was his second arrest this month on the same charge. Francisco A. Rodriguez was rst arrested June 12 by Detective William Hill from the state’s Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF). He was charged with the felony of obtaining employment with fraudulent information and booked into the Okeechobee County Jail on $2,500 bond. He was later released on bond. Rodriguez, 23, S.R. 70 W., was arrested again on June 19 by Detective Hill on the same charge. However, this time the man’s bond has been set at $10,000 and a detainer has been placed on him by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This means once both cases have been through the judicial system he will likely be deported. The detainer also assures that even if Rodriguez is able to post the required bond, he will not be released from jail. Detective Hill stated in his arrest report that the man’s rst arrest stemmed from him gaining employment in 2012 at a local business by using bogus Social Security information as well as what appeared to be a permanent resident card. According to the detective, Rodriguez’s second arrest came about after he submitted employment paperwork to another business on or about May 24, 2013. Detective Hill went on to state in his report that after checking on the Social Security number submitted by Rodriguez to the business, he was able to con rm that number does not belong to Rodriguez. Also, the two arrest reports indicate that the number submitted by Rodriguez to the rst business was different than the one he used to get a job at the second business. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Okeechobee News June 21, 2013 By Eric KoppOkeechobee New An Okeechobee man has been released on bond from the Okeechobee County Jail following his arrest on a felony drug charge.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Jaryaca Baker celebrated her inking a full softball scholarship to Western Oklahoma State with her family, teammates and former coaches on June 19 at Beef O’Brady’s Restaurant in Okeechobee. Baker got the offer a few months ago after a visit to Altus, Okla., to visit the campus, the coach Michael McBrayer and learn more about the community. She enjoyed her visit w ith her mom Ramona and her education advisor with the Seminole Tribe, and decided to accept the offer. “I feel pretty con dent that I can handle college softball. I’ve been working hard with the Firestix and playing in a lot of exposure tournaments, so I’ve seen a lot of good competition,” she added. Baker said she was very thankful to have all of her friends and family at the signing party to support her. Baker was a three-year letter winner for Lady Brahman softball. She also played v arsity basketball, varsity soccer, and ag football during her career. She plans to study business management at the two-year school. The Lady Pioneers nished 47-10 last y ear and were ranked #13 in the nation in Division II. Baker said she felt comfortable in Altus, w hich is a town similar in size to Okeechobee. It also has a strong agriculture industry. “This has been my dream since I was ve years old. I had to follow my dream and everything I went through pushed me to get where I am. I thank all my supporters and even those that doubted me because I worked to prove them wrong,” she added. Baker also mentioned several teammates from her freshman year like Naomi Stephens, Ashtyn Brown, Taylor Douglas, Courtney Wilson and Cindy Wine, who mentored her early in her high school career. Her father, Preston, and mom, Ramona, are both athletic and take part in recreational sports. Preston served as Jaryaca’s rst coach and pushed her to excel at athletics. Jaryaca said she never felt intimated as a hitter, and was able to pick up sports quickly. She also has never lacked in con dence. This year she drilled 10 homeruns, an impressive number for high school. Her mom stated it was a bittersweet day for her. She admitted she was not ready to let Jaryaca grow up and move away but she still realized it was a step Jaryaca had to take. “She has set real high standards and goals for the other kids. She has worked real hard in academics and athletics in the past year,” she added. Ramona said her husband was always there to help Jaryaca and encourage her and deserved a lot of credit for her athletic success. “He pushed her hard at everything she did and encouraged her to give 100 percent. He was her rst coach and he’ll coach her until the end,” she added. Preston said he is excited and happy for his daughter. He also thanked all her other coaches like Kim Hargraves who helped her career. “I wanted her to follow her dreams and do what she wanted to do. As long as she is happy, I’m happy,” he added. Jaryaca has eight other brothers and sisters and several are athletic. They hope to follow in her footsteps in the next few years. Hargraves said Jaryaca is a strong-willed girl and an exceptional softball player. She said Jaryaca can excel at any sport she chose. “I think she’ll do well in college. She comes from athletic roots and she’s very determined. When she is told she can’t do something, she is out to prove them wrong,” she added. Hargraves said Baker’s strength stood out as she has a muscular upper body and a lot of home run power. She said Baker saw a lot of teammates go off to college and that motivate her to achieve her goals. Coach Heather Gillis said it was a big opportunity for Jaryaca to go to college and that she is always excited when a former player goes off and makes something o f themselves. “She was one of the leaders on our team this year. She brought a positive attitude and a presence and con dent level to the team. She lifted up some kids that needed a condence boost, and did everything we asked her to do,” she added.

IRSC will immediately begin the challenging work of identifying and implementing strategies for increasing student retention, persistence, and graduation rates. “Indian River State College is honored to participate in the national priority of closing achievement gaps and increasing success for every student. Through Achieving the Dream, we will build upon our track record of creating a college environment that helps students achieve and graduate,” said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC President. “Twentyrst Century jobs require higher level skills than ever, and it’s vitally important that students are fully equipped with the knowledge and skills they need for career success. Helping students reach their educational goals, contributes signi cantly to their individual career prospects, but the bene ts extend further to support the economic strength of our community and nation.” Following a rigorous application process, IRSC was selected based on the college’s commitment to student achievement, innovative approaches to teaching and advanced use of technology,” he said. “Becoming an Achieving the Dream Institution takes courage, diligence, and an unrelenting institution-wide commitment to student success and equity,” said William Trueheart, President and CEO of Achieving the Dream. “Indian River State College should be applauded for doing its part in the student success movement.” A national nonpro t organization, Achieving the Dream provides tools, resources and support to selected colleges. Member colleges are focused on helping students, especially low-income and minority students, complete their education and obtain market-valued credentials. Data is used to evaluate students’ progress to degree completion. Intervention strategies assist students who need help and the steps taken are evaluated and adjusted for effectiveness. IRSC has maintained a record of increasingly large graduating classes for the past 11 years, with 3,200 students earning Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees during the 2012-2013 school year. Various innovative initiatives implemented by the college have contributed to this successful student performance. Guidance counselors carefully evaluate each student’s interests and past academic record to tailor a personalized program plan. Students taking collegepreparatory courses also complete a course to develop their study, test-taking and time management skills. Students also bene t from Direct-Connect, an individualized tutoring program. Through mandatory Ne w Student Orientation students become familiar with all the college’s programs and services. Other successful IRSC programs include expansion of student internships and academic support workshops. Indian River State College participated in the 2013 Achieving the Dream Kickoff Institute in Orlando, Florida during June 17-20. The Institute provided a forum for IRSC to work with Leadership and Data Coaches. IRSC also received a sneak preview of the Interventions Showcase. This unique tool, newly-created by Achieving the Dream, provides colleges a platform to explore student success interventions and to nd colleges that are implementing similar strategies. Using information from the Interventions Showcase, IRSC can connect with others within the network to exchange ideas, challenges, and ndings as they relate to speci c interventions.

We Treat Kids Too! Diabetic Foot Complications At Florida Foot Specialist we treat all problems with the foot and ankle. There are a wide range of problems that affect the foot and ankle. These can range from orthopedic problems such as bunions to neurologic problem i.e. neuropathy. A large number of our patients are diabetic, due to the numerous complications that accompany diabetes. We also deal with fungal infections of the nails and feet, as well as vascular disorders that can cause long-term problems with the foot and ankle. Diabetes is an inability of the body to deliver sugar into the cells. Sugar is delivered into the cells with insulin. The inability of the body to deliver the sugar into the cells causes a high concentration of sugar in the blood. These high sugar concentrations cause damage to the small vessels and nerves. The high sugars also decrease the bodys ability to “ ght infection. As the nerves become damaged, pain can occur in the feet “ rst. This is followed by numbness. Often patients are relieved when the feet become numb since they are no longer painful. However, the numbness can pose its own threat. The patient is unable to feel if something is happening to Florida Foot SpecialistYour Neighborhood Foot & Ankle Specialists his or her feet. This can lead to an ulcer or wound. Once you have an ulcer, you need a good blood supply to feel that ulcer. The high blood sugars will cause enough damage to the vessels that the wound will not receive enough blood to heal. This means that the patient will have a wound that is unable to heal quickly. An ulceration is also a source of infection. The skin is the bodys “ rst line of defense against infection. An ulceration in the skin is a break in that defense system. So bacteria are able to enter the body. In diabetics with high blood sugars the immune system is de“ cient. This will allow the infection to spread. If the infection gets into the blood it can be life-threatening. Often times, if the infection gets into the bone, the bone needs to be removed calling for an amputation. As a diabetic, it is important to keep your blood sugars under control. It is also important to check your feet and shoes every day for any signs o f problems. Lastly, as a diabetic, you should be seen regularly by you r Primary Physician and a Podiatrist. Small problems can become big very quickly with diabetes. 12 Okeechobee News June 21, 2013

TALLAHASSEE—To shed some new light on a familiar topic, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is spotlighting another energy-saving tip for its 2013 Energy Saving Challenge during Florida’s historic 500th anniversary year. Participating residents can save up to 500 kilowatt hours (kWh) or more of energy through December that will save them money and help protect resources for future Floridians and visitors to enjoy for another 500 years. For June’s tip, the PSC urges you to “light up,” ef ciently. According to the American Lighting Association (ALA), “lighting typically accounts for about 17 percent of residential electricity use.” There are easy ways you can reduce lighting energy consumption in your residence without compromising lighting quality or convenience. “We want Florida’s residents to light up ef ciently,” said PSC Chairman Ronald A. Bris. “So check your lighting habits, use lighting controls, and remember to switch out your incandescent light bulbs with CFLs to save energy and money.” Lighting controls are an excellent option for saving energy. Not to worry, though, you don’t have to spend money rewiring your house! Here are a few simple and lessexpensive methods from ALA’s website for controlling light to save energy:  Turn off lights when you do not need them.  Switch out the light bulbs you use the most with CFLs to get the biggest bang for your buck.  Use motion sensors that will turn on the lights when you enter a room and turn off the lights when you exit. Motion sensors can even be used to control outdoor lighting.  Always use the proper lumens (or equivalent wattage) and most ef cient bulb to ful ll your lighting needs. “Florida’s reputation as a one-of-a-kind cultural destination is a testament to its diverse, innovative, and resourceful residents,” said Secretary of State Ken Detzner. “The PSC’s energy challenge will help future generations of Floridians enjoy the great state we call home, and we welcome them as a Viva Florida 500 partner.” Join the PSC’s 2013 Energy Saving Challenge and track your new conservation habits and monthly energy savings. Look for next month’s PSC challenge and visit our website to nd more energy saving tips at www. oridapsc.com/consumers/tips. 22 Okeechobee News June 21, 2013 ACROSS 1 Chatted via AOL 5 Legend of the GuardiansŽ birds 9 Product prefix with -matic 14 Strike zone? 15 State with a fivesided flag 16 Staircase post 17 *Informal survey 19 Lose no games 20 So Miguels islands 21 Get dolled (up) 23 Kings and queens 24 Legendary Henie 25 Discharge 27 Great Lakes prov. 29 *Young starlets driver 33 Six-sided state 36 Tends the lawn 38 Key for Debussy? 39 + or -, e.g. 40 Its not chilly in Chile 41 Buttonhole, e.g. 42 Rocket tail? 43 Russian leader, 1682-1725 44 WBA stats 45 *Jeweled fashion accessory 47 Mauna __ 49 Prefix with -morphic 50 Albee offering 54 Out of the question!Ž 56 Bud 59 Haul in 60 Slangy denials 62 Repeated words in a drill sergeants marching order, and a hint to how the first and second word, in turn, of each starred answer would be touchtyped 64 Ad 65 Brace 66 Pastures 67 New Yorks __ Island 68 German auto 69 Every 12 mos.

GAINESVILLE—Leisurely swims in w arm, tropical waters fueled by the gaze of admiring fans and a healthy vegetarian diet. The life of a manatee hardly seems likely to prompt concerns about heart disease. But researchers at the University of Florida say the lumbering, loveable sea cow’s ticker deserves a closer look because of the animal’s endangered status. That’s why they’ve developed a technique to test for cardiac problems in endangered manatees, both in the wild and in captivity. The new technique will enhance knowledge of how the manatee heart functions. The UF researchers are using the technique to gather data they hope to share with w ildlife and zoo veterinarians to ultimately save more manatee lives. Collaborating with scientists from Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s marine mammal pathology laboratory in St. Petersburg, they are using echocardiography on the large creatures, making use of a specially designed table built to hold animals weighing up to 2,000 pounds. “There are a lot of gaps in our knowledge base on basic anatomy and physiology of manatees due to the obvious limitations of w orking with a 1,000to 1,500-pound animal that spends its entire life in the water,” said Trevor Gerlach, an intern in UF’s aquatic animal health program and lead author on a paper that documents the rst phase of the researchers’ study in the June issue of the Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine. “Due to their current endangered status, it is important that we understand the animal in its entirety so that we can better tailor conservation efforts for the species.” The researchers’ long-term goal is to provide practitioners at rehabilitation facilities and those working in the eld with data from clinically healthy animals. Such animals could be compared to animals of concern to determine if cardiac disease is present. To allow for effective testing, the researchers rst developed a table built to hold the weight of 2,000-pound animals that were part of a large-scale manatee health assessment conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in Crystal River. Fourteen healthy, wild and captive Florida manatees underwent echocardiography, administered using the table technique, between fall 2011 and winter 2012. The group included eight females and six males of various ages. “We were able to clearly visualize all valves and chambers,” Mr. Gerlach said, adding that other key indicators of heart function also were successfully obtained. Some abnormalities in the study animals also were documented. “Our results indicate that echocardiography in the Florida manatee is possible, which has both clinical and research implications in larger epidemiologic studies evaluating diseases of the cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular systems,” Mr. Gerlach said. Although extensive research has been conducted on comparative anatomy, physiology and ecology of sea cows, very few studies have evaluated the manatee heart. Basic cardiac morphology and a test called an electrocardiogram have been examined, but the diagnostic value is limited to electrical imbalances in the heart, the researchers said. “Echocardiography is the gold standard for diagnosing valve diseases and structural abnormalities, and provides other information as well,” Mr. Gerlach said. Researchers are nishing up the second phase of the study, which entails collecting more data from echocardiographs to establish normal testing parameters for manatees of various ages. “Once we establish the parameters, we can begin larger epidemiological studies on the prevalence of heart disease in the wild population, which is one of our long-term goals,” Mr. Gerlach said. Bob Bonde, a manatee researcher with the USGS, praised the new technique. “Out-of-water, real-time assessment o f these large aquatic mammals will bene t our evaluation of manatee health-related indices in the wild population,” he said. “Knowledge of manatee reproductive tness and nutritional condition is paramount to our fully understanding their recovery.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 104 NW 7th Ave. Okeechobee 863-763-4010 or 888-874-2945Lic.
