Okeechobee Forecast By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A young boy was taken to Raulerson Hospital with a non-life threatening injury after he was accidentally shot in the chest w ith a BB/pellet gun An incident report by Deputy Fred Bradley, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), indicated the 9-year-old victim was playing with some other boys when the accident occurred Monday, July 15. According to the report one of those boys had a BB/pellet handgun and he red it at the ground. When no projectile came out of the gun he thought it was empty. Then, from a distance of 8 to 10 feet, the boy pointed the gun at the victim's chest, pulled the trigger and red a single shot, stated the report. "The victim had a pea-sized hole in the center of his chest. There was minimal blood around the gunshot entry," stated Deputy Bradley's report. The victim was then taken to the emergency room at the local hospital. Deputy Bradley went on to state that the parents of the boy who pulled the trigger gave the deputy that 177 caliber/4.5mm air pistol as well as a 177 caliber/4.5mm BB / pellet ri e. Both guns, continued the deputy, were turned over to the OCSO evidence custodian "... to be destroyed as requested b y the parents." Because there was no intention to shoot the victim, the deputy made no arrest. 9 year old accidentally shot with BB/pellet gun By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A 44-year-old Okeechobee man was killed late last week when he apparently crossed the center line on U.S. 441 S.E. and stuck a tractor-trailer around 8:24 a.m. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, David J.

Special to the Okeechobee News Megan Williamson, the School District of Okeechobee’s 2014 Teacher of the Year, received statewide recognition and an award of $1,000 from the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations (CFEF) and Florida Power & Light on July 12. She was chosen from among 67 countywide teacher of the year honorees as the CFEF’s annual “Champion of Children” recipient for exemplary dedication to her students. Florida Power & Light sponsored the award with Larry Volenec making the surprise announcement during concluding presentations at the Macy’s/Florida Department of Education Teacher of the Year Program in Orlando. Ms. Williamson was singled out for her efforts to increase business and community investment and involvement in her classroom at North Elementary School. Although she just completed her third year of teaching, her classroom leadership drew accolades from her superintendent and parents. “My congratulations to Megan Williamson for her exceptional commitment to expanding learning opportunities far beyond the classroom,” said Commissioner of Education Dr. Tony Bennett. “Her efforts represent what so many teachers do every day to enhance their students’ lives.” Ms. Williamson took on the challenge of teaching a single-gender class this year, and also spearheaded a mentor program in which she matched each of her 22 female students with a professional woman in the community. In her rst year of teaching, she helped her students to build an environmentally friendly garden which she also used to promote reading among students in her elementary school. “We know that it takes extra effort for teachers to truly seek business and community involvement and investment in their classrooms, which is a large part of what local education foundations do in providing classroom grants and other above-andbeyond opportunities for teachers and students,” said Mary Chance, president of the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. “We sponsor this Champion of Children award with our business partner Florida Power & Light to acknowledge a teacher of the year honoree who consistently seeks outside resources and opportunities for their students.” CFEF is the membership organization for Florida’s school district-wide local education foundations, including the Hardee County Education Foundation. Established in 1987, CFEF seeks to advance student achievement in Florida by increasing private-sector investment and involvement in public education. CFEF now has 57 member foundations with 1,100 business and community leaders serv ing as volunteer board members. Collective ly, they raise more than $50 million annuall y to support students, teachers and school s through a variety of programs. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 ORRECEIVE UP TO $2,500 in rebates* and tax credits**with the purchase of a qualifying Lennox Home Comfort System.Special Financing Available* 208 SW 5th Avenue, Okeechobee, FL 34974 THIS SOLUTION IS NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT.DUST, MOLDAND POLLENMAKING YOUUNCOMFORTABLE? *Offer is valid only with the purchase of qualifying Lennox products.

Murder charge The person to blame is the one who overdoses. The guy who sold the drugs didn’t force him to OD. He should be charged for s elling the drugs not for murder but because of who it was they are going to waste the s tate’s money on charges they can’t prove j ust like the Zimmerman case. Thinking along the same lines; you should go after the person who sold the car that someone got killed with, the person who sold and installed t he swimming pool that someone drowned in, the store where someone bought the food that made them fat and caused them to have a heart attack. People need to be held accountable for their own actions.  Florida Statutes speci cally describes t hese cases: “Which resulted from the unlawful distribution of any substance cont rolled under s. 893.03(1), cocaine as des cribed in s. 893.03(2)(a)4., opium or any s ynthetic or natural salt, compound, derivat ive, or preparation of opium, or methadone b y a person 18 years of age or older, when s uch drug is proven to be the proximate c ause of the death of the user, is murder in t he rst degree and constitutes a capital felony, punishable as provided in s. 775.082.” W hen one reads our statutes, it’s amazing at how many “different” ways (categories) in w hich a person can be killed/charged.  A defense attorney could argue the cust omer knew he was buying an illegal, unregulated drug. The defendant could be guilty of traf cking, but couldn’t know what users did with the heroin he sold them any more t han a pharmacist could predict whether a c ustomer will abuse prescription drugs. Any number of drug dealers could have been s elling the same batch of heroin that the acc used man was allegedly traf cking. It will b e hard for criminal prosecutors to make t he murder charges stick without direct evidence.  I guarantee the state has some strong evidence. You don’t get a grand jury to agree t o charges without it.  Grand juries differ in many ways from a regular jury and are able to see and hear things a normal jury might not be allowed to see/hear ... keeping in mind grand juries are strictly presented evidence and witnesses by the prosecution unless they subpoena other things or witnesses; there is no defence council present to give argument. They meet in secret and all evidence/witnesses are protected through provisions of anonymity, which promotes witnesses to openly speak their piece of mind, which can not be done in a regular court setting, and is done without rebuttal or defense.Theft I can’t stand a thief. When are they gonna start giving these guys some real time for this. They spend more resources catching those big bad spice dealers.  I also cannot stand a thief, and I think we all must do what we can to make it harder for the thieves. For example, lock your car. Most of the car burglaries are from unlocked cars. Don’t make it easy for them! And watch what you post on social media. Don’t brag about your expensive possessions and show photos of everything you own online. And don’t tell the world when you are out of town on vacation. Wait and post those vacation photos after you get home.  As for Spice dealers, I am glad they are shutting them down. Spice has been sold to kids and it is very dangerous. The kids think it is not dangerous because it was sold legally for a while marketed as incense and just labeled “not for human consumption.” It can cause brain damage or even death. Who knows what poisons they mix in that stuff.Taxes Congratulations someone nally attracted a new business with new jobs to the county/city. I understand the state is paying the company to train the new employees and the new business got several tax incentives. I don’t know what the tax breaks are, but is it fair to the businesses that are currently here by not getting treated the same and give them the same tax breaks to stay here? I think that if you have to reduce taxes to get new businesses here then that should be the new level for all and you need to reduce the government to that level of income. I know that if I was a local business owner, I would want to be treated the same as the new business and receive the same tax breaks for staying here. Northside Baptist Church is proud to announce that Rev. Richard Giles, from Frostproof, has accepted the call to be its new minister. Pastor Rick is joined by his wife, Karen and son, James.

He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Forrester was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail on a bond of $51,000. Deputy Megan Holroyd, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated in an arrest report she spotted a man walking east on N.W. 36th St. around 1:40 a.m. Monday. She stopped the man—later identi ed as Forrester—and began asking him some questions. According to the report, Forrester was carrying some binoculars and a bag containing a cell phone, a phone charger and an assortment of electrical wires. The deputy went on to state in her report that she became suspicious and asked if she, and OCSO Deputy Joe Gracie, could search the man. Forrester reportedly gave the deputies permission to search him. During that search a metal tube resembling a pipe was found in the man’s back pocket. The tube also contained a residue, continued the report. A glass tube with a residue was also found in the front pocket of his pants, along with a clear plastic bag that held 41 smaller plastic bags, stated the deputy.

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 Florida Foot SpecialistYour Neighborhood Foot & Ankle Specialists 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 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 o f 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 allo w the infection to spread. If the infection gets into the blood it can be life-threatening. Often times, i f 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 unde r control. It is also important to check your feet and shoes every day fo r any signs of problems. Lastly, as a diabetic, you should be seen regularly by your Primary Physician and a Podiatrist. Small problems can become big very quickly with diabetes. 8 Okeechobee News July 17, 2013

MurphyOkeechobee News Fifteen performers competed this year in the Texaco Country Music Showdown hosted by the Good Spirits Lounge in Okeechobee and it was a West Palm Beach band that took top honors. The Casey Raines Band performed an original single to win the competition this y ear. They advance to the Florida State Finals in Suwannee, Fla. in September. The winner of the Okeechobee contest has gone on to w in the Florida title for the past three years. Ms. Raines said she was pretty shocked to win because this was the rst competition her band has entered. They have only been together about two months. "I have some great guys behind me and they are seasoned musicians. I'm thankful to have them," she said. Ms. Raines said she was pleased to see so many young contestants who are writing their own songs, "I think there were great contestants. It is awesome to see more and more people writing songs. That is my passion and love, writing songs." Her band performed her single, "Walking." It is a song about rough times in life. Raines herself has seen hard times. She was kicked in the head and unable to work or even walk for a year. She said the song is inspiration to people that face hardships, "I'm one of those people that keep going no matter what. When things go down or go bad just keep walking forward and things will go y our way." As with most of the performers, the dream for Raines and her band is to make it big and reach stardom. She said she is content just writing songs and entertaining music fans. "If I get lucky and get published as a song w riter I'd be content. I just love singing and performing and I want other people to enjoy my music." Her plans are to open for other bands and play in night clubs. Her band includes lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and drums. Many of the performers this year wrote their own music. The acts included Maggie Bauch, a 13-year-old from Boca Raton, who performed her song, Tennessee Dream, and Cassidy Diana, a 14-year-old from South Florida who penned a song about military families she named "The Call." Her father is a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Army. Other competitors this year included several Big Lake area residents that included Fernando Mendoza of Clewiston, Michael Luke Mazzina of Clewiston, Logan Dressel of Avon Park, Robert Ahlbrandt of Zolfo Springs and Matthew Green of Okeechobee. The contest has been held nationally for 30 years. It gives up-and-coming artists from across America a chance to show what they can do. Some of the biggest country music stars today competed in the contest including Garth Brooks, LeAnn Rimes, Jason Aldean, Martina McBride and Brad Paisley. The national winner collects $100,000. The acts are judged by marketability in country music, their vocal and instrumental ability, the originality of the performance, their stage presence and charisma, song writing ability, and overall talent level. Cowboy Karaoke provided the sound system for the contest. WOKC radio coordinated the event. Several local businesses helped to sponsor the event. Good Spirits plays host to Country Music Showdown Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyThe Casey Raines Band from West Palm Beach was victorious in this year’s competition over 14 other performers.

WellsUF GAINESVILLE—A new video series from the University of Florida tackles many common gardening questions with answers from experts with UF’s Institute of Food and A gricultural Sciences. The short video segments cover topics ranging from when and how to water your lawn to growing your own blackberries. They may be viewed on YouTube. “The videos are a great starting source of information for gardeners,” said Emily Eubanks, communications coordinator with the UF/IFAS Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology. “They’re quick to watch and provide information from the experts.” The rst installment of the video series contains 14 videos and was uploaded in May. Future videos, such as one about fall gardening, will be added in the coming months. Topics available now are azalea care, plant purchasing, gardening with annual owers, growing blackberries, conserving w ater in the landscape, lawn watering, nding the right plants for your landscape, using landscaping to save energy, testing soil pH, fertilizing trees and shrubs, selecting lawn fertilizer, avoiding over fertilization, and vegetable garden basics and maintenance. The videos are part of Gardening Solutions, a program initiative by the UF/IFAS Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology. The center focuses on social, environmental and economic issues affecting Florida’s urban landscapes. The video series was funded by the UF/IFAS Institute for Plant Innovation, a multidisciplinary team that researches ways to help people eat better and live healthier lives. For a link to the online videos, see the Okeechobee News page on Facebook.

Mink are rare in Florida, and wildlife biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are hoping to learn more about this small mammal. But they need the public’s help to nd out w here it occurs. People can report evidence such as mink sightings, photos and roadkilled specimens online. Adult mink weigh 2-3 pounds and measure about 2 feet in length. Fur can be dark chocolate or a light rusty brown. Sometimes there is a patch of white along the chin and under the throat. “We know that mink are more likely to be found in and near salt-marsh habitat on both coasts of Florida, but the reports people provide will help us pinpoint where we do research,” said Chris Winchester, wildlife biologist with the FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Winchester said there are three known subspecies of mink in Florida – Atlantic salt marsh mink, Gulf salt marsh mink and Everglades mink. Although there is a scarcity of information about the three subspecies, only the Everglades mink is listed as threatened. Some people confuse mink with other species such as otters and weasels, but whereas mink are quite small, otters typically weigh 10 to 30 pounds and are 3 feet or more long. Weasels look similar to mink, but are smaller and have brown fur along their backs and pale yellow fur along the entire belly. Mink are strictly carnivorous, eating sh, frogs, cray sh, crabs and various birds and small mammals. For more information about this study and to submit sightings to the FWC, visit MyFWC.com/Research, click on Wildlife, and select “Public Asked to Share Mink Sightings” under “Terrestrial Mammals.” FWC asks public to report mink sightings Big Water DeMolay to meet in OkeechobeeBig Water DeMolay meets at 105 N.W.
