Special to the Okeechobee News/ SFWMDDixie Ranch East in Okeechobee County is participating in the Northern Everglades Payment for Environmental Services program, a component of the SFWMD Dispersed Water Management Program. Special to the Okeechoee NewsAs heavy rains continue in the area, water managers are using every available resource to store water, to limit the amount that must be sent out to tide through the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries. Since 2005, the South Florida Water Management District has been working with a coalition of agencies, environmental organizations, ranchers and researchers to enhance opportunities for storing excess surface water on private, public and tribal lands. Over the years, these partnerships have made thousands of acre-feet of water retention and storage available throughout the greater Everglades system. With Lake Okeechobee’s water level continuing to rise SFWMD storing water on private and public landsSee WATER — Page 2 See IRSC — Page 2

from months of above-average rainfall during the 2013 rainy season, the district is utilizing this storage while taking further actions to capture and store water throughout the regional water management system. Holding water on these lands is one tool to help reduce the amount of water owing into Lake Okeechobee and/or discharged to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries during the current high water conditions throughout South Florida. To date, the district is storing water on 37 public and private land sites throughout the region. In addition to actively holding water at locations where Dispersed Water Management and regional projects are in place, district actions to increase temporary water storage throughout the region include: Storing water on pre-construction project lands where possible. For example, water is being pumped onto 3,200 acres at the site of the Caloosahatchee River (C-43) West Basin Storage Reservoir, a future Everglades restoration project in Hendry County. This site has been used previously for storage under similar high-water conditions. Utilizing a temporary pump on the District's BOMA property to discharge additional water from the Caloosahatchee River to onsite storage areas. This pump enhances the capacity of existing pumps that were alread y being used at this Dispersed Water Management project. Pursuing agreements with landowners to pump water from the local watershed onto their lands in exchange for reimbursement of fuel costs. Contacting landowners and drainage districts in the Northern Everglades, including the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River basins, to see if they are able to temporarily retain/store water. While these landowners and drainage districts are cooperating whenever possible, viable opportunities are limited as most of the system is already saturated. Encouraging farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area and local drainage districts south of Lake Okeechobee to voluntarily attempt to hold water back and store it when possible. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Available 24/7http://specialsections.newszap.com/SS/Tiles2.aspx?sortby=type&type=Florida View all our online sections in the comfort of your own home or on the go! 2012-2013 Medical Information GuideFriday, October 26, 2012 Supplement to the: CONSULT-A-NURSE For Free Physician Referral & Health Care Questions call 763-9228 Providing our community quality healthcare services with a personal touch for more than 30 years Emergency Services 24 hrs /7 days a week O rthopedics Introducing Dr. Benjamin Epstein Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy R adiology Services Accredited by the American College of Radiology in: CT Scan, Digital Mammography, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, & Ultrasound Surgical Services Minimally Invasive Procedures/ Inpatient and Outpatient Services Occupational Health / Workers Compensation We Treat Kids Too!

School grades There are resources if you use them. Right now our kids are learning that with “No Child Left Behind” they basically don’t have to do their work because either they w ill still pass or their teacher gets the blame. T ake responsibility for your child’s education instead of teaching them how to make exc uses to get out of things.  I am very involved in my kids educat ion and wrote my kids teachers several t imes with no response and asked for meetings and updates with no response. They later said it was because they had other kids c hecking homework and agendas. Their w ork wasn’t graded properly or kept up with on Skyward.  I don’t bash teachers, I love them for w hat they do. I had great ones for the most part through my time in the Okeechobee s chool system, But I tell you what, this past year, my kids would come home and not know ANYTHING about the assignment. They would have the page number and that’s it. No examples, No notes, Just s traight out of the book. I should get part of their salary, as much as I taught my own kids. At some point you have to listen to your c hild when they say the teacher just doesn’t c are if you get it or not. The bad apples need t o be weeded out.  I am both a teacher and a parent. I know that most teachers will blame thems elves far more than you in the community c an ever understand. The problem with that is we all (parents, teachers, students, and c ommunity) need to take active roles in the education of our children. Teachers teach in t he schools in order to get students to mast er the state standards and new common c ore standards.Extended school day at Everglades I think they should do this at all of the elementary schools.  My son goes to Everglades and I don’t mind the extra hour. As long as he keeps learning, it keeps him from working fast food.  I think the kids go to school for a long enough day then to come home and do home work then eat dinner then shower then bed. There is no time for them to unwind.  They think keeping them in school an hour longer will help? What they are doing is going to make the kids hate school even more, horrible idea. Unless you are a parent that just wants to get as much time to yourself as possible.  Parents who don’t like it have the option of transferring their kid to another school, but then they have to provide transportation. The school bus from a neighborhood only goes to one elementary school.Budget hearing Tuesday It will be hard for the average working class citizen to be there at 5 p.m., what with trying to leave work, get home to feed the family, etc. Of course by the time the “working class stiffs” arrive, most of the items will have been “discussed” in that “public” meeting as required by law.  Guys, forget the showers and supper. Nothing will remind the commissioners who they work for as much as seeing them walk in right off the road from work. I have seen it happen and it warmed my heart.  Everybody wants to complain but nobody cares enough to show up. The county commissioners are proposing to reduce our county taxes plus reduce our special tax rates also they are trying to reduce our tax rate which will help bring new businesses. I strongly recommend that every taxpayer show up tonight and support the BOCC to lower our taxes. They are going over the county budget line-by-line and these meetings are being held to give the people the opportunity to make comments and recommendations. I had no comment because they are trying to lower my taxes. Don’t worry what you’re dressed like because it’s an informal meeting and I kicked the mud off my boots before I entered the building.  When one spouse works past 6 p.m. the right thing to do is take proper care of our families. All else pales in comparison, at least in my opinion. Of course, my position is clear. When these so-called “public” meetings are clearly scheduled at the convenience of the board’s personal schedules, then there can be no justice for the masses. By Tom PasquarellaCornerstone BaptistDo you know why you are here? Do you know why you have been placed here on this earth? Do your circumstances dictate your life? Does your background command, demand how it is you live the rest of your life? Have you ever wondered why it is you can never escape your past? Have you ever wondered why it is God had given you or allowed your past? Like you, many have asked these questions, and many have just given in to what has always been and seem to be stuck in what will always be. Living defeated lives, trusting in the lies of life where we are always the victim and never the victor. Let us see how it works when a man does not follow what has been and strives for something more. King Josiah was such a blessing to Israel, but not because of his circumstances, not because of his relations, and not because of his will, but because he was steadfastly focused on God. He did not turn away from his calling and if you are in Christ his life may show you how you can do the same. “Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jedidah the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath.” (2 Kings 22:1) Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign. Think about it—a young eight-year-old kid is now the leader of God’s people. So how will this young man lead a people as disobedient and sinsick as the Jewish people have been. This child did not have the years of experience, in fact he did not have very good role models in his life. His grandfather Manasseh did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. Manasseh worshiped and served other gods and even set up altars to other gods within the very temple of the great I Am. Josiah’s father Amon fell right in line “and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, as his father Manasseh did.” (2 Kings 21:20) So, where will that leave this 8-year-old king? Will he follow the sin pattern of his grandfather and father, and continue an ungodly legacy? The answer is no. “And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and walked in all the way of David his father, and he did not turn aside to the right or to the left.” (2 King 22:2) What did Josiah do? He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD. Not only did He do what was right in the eyes of the great I Am. He honored God and was focused on Him and Him alone. Who does the Bible say his father was? David, why? David was the one through whom the promise of the everlasting king would come. He walked in all the ways of His father David, He did not turn to the right nor to the left. Did David mess up? Doesn’t this verse seem to indicate that Josiah did not veer off the path God had chosen him for? It seems that He exceeded even the faithfulness of King David himself. “Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not asid e from any thing that he commanded him all th e days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.” (1 Kings 15:5) David did well and followed every way of God except in regards to th e Hittite, whom He murdered. We have no record of grievous sin in Josiah, all we know is that h e did not lose His focus. Josiah was faithful to remain steadfast and focused of the calling of God. Laying aside circumstances, Josiah was focused on honoring God and following faithfully. What about you—are you remaining focused or are you off track of your responsibilities? Are you allowing your circumstances to dictate your life or Jesus? If you know Christ, then you must lay down all of your hang-ups, hurts, pains, how you have always done it and take on his power to live for His glory. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffe r you to be tempted above that ye are able; bu t will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) Standing is your responsibility, but it is only through the power of God, but you will be crushed if you do not submit your problems, temptations, and struggles into His tende r care. Christians can live defeated lives, becaus e of the fact Jesus has come to give life and lif e more abundant. We are called to live in victory, no longer prisoners of what was, but kingdom citizens, ambassador, and re ectors of the King. Living defeated leaves a less then appealing vie w of the gospel which frees and makes right. This does not mean we forget what happened, bu t only that we have allowed the salve of healing that comforted us to comfort others. Allow His love cause you to love him enough to live without turning aside to sin. “For, brethren, ye hav e been called unto liberty; only use not liberty fo r an occasion to the esh, but by love serve on e another.” This freedom will look like this, we will walk not after esh, our own desires, but afte r the Spirit. We would not walk in and remain in the lust of the esh, seeking what we want even though it goes completely against God and His word. When are we going to stop following ou r hearts and start following His Word? “He alone is able to liberate us from our spiritual tombs and breathe eternal life into our dark and deadened souls.” Paul Tripp. If you have not trusted Christ, your problem is not living in the past, but living in your sin because you are spiritually dead. If you do not know Christ, Jesus makes a very simpl e plea to you. “And saying, The time is ful lled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) H e does not mince words, repent, turn away from your sins, and believe the gospel, which is abou t everything from the cradle to the grave. He has come to give life in Him.

To prevent mosquitoes from living and multiplying around y our home or business, individuals should remember to drain and cover. DRAIN standing water: Drain water from garbage cans, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainwater has collected.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Okeechobee News A ugust 11, 2013 By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee NewsOkeechobee High school football coaches were enthused as 73 players showed up for the rst day of fall football practice on Monday. The players will go through one week w ithout tackling or major contact this w eek, will learn plays and formations, w ork on conditioning, and prepare themselves for full contact on Aug. 12. The Brahmans will play an exhibition game this year on Friday, Aug. 23, when they visit the Lake Placid Green Dragons. Head Coach Chris Branham said he and his coaching staff are excited to be back. He is also excited about the incoming freshman class. He said the players have given a lot of effort so far and have learned from their mistakes. He said for the younger kids it can be an adjustment when they join the high school team. "The young kids have picked up the concepts. The bigger kids are told to be careful in lower grades and now they are told to be mean and tenacious. They are a v ery smart group and they know where to go and why," he explained. Coaches also got to spend a lot of time this summer with the players. They hosted the Chaka's Stars Men of Distinction Camp in June and also held daily weight room workouts for the players. Branham said the team knows the formations and are concentrating on ne tuning the play book. "I'm very pleased so far. We are a long way from being ready to play a game, but I'm excited to get into a game. If we continue to grow for a month or so who knows what can happen when district games come around," he added. The team will have a new personality on the eld. They plan to rely heavily on their veteran offensive line. The team will settle for three yards and a cloud of dust this year rather than big plays. "By no means will we get into a 100meter race with anybody. We are de nitely a stronger team more than a fast team. On defense, our goal is to keep everything in front of us because we probably won't chase them down," he added. On offense the plan is to control the ball, limit mistakes and penalties and control the clock. Offensive linemen like Bobby Jo Garza, Cody Walker, Cory Vickers and Greg Hernandez will be expected to control the game. Ethan Parriot and Edrick Neal also are in the mix for playing time. Branham has switched EJ Neal from the quarterback competition to play wide receiver. Brandon Dee' Shockley and Cory Surls are still in competition for the starter's job. Branham does not plan to put the game in their hands as the game plan might feature a lot of play action passes, screen passes, and a strong run game. One need is a place kicker. Open tryouts have been held but no one has stood out. Once school starts, Branham thinks more candidates will come out and kick. Adrian Minondo has been slowed this week by a high ankle sprain. He will be rested as long as possible. Other backs include Khalil Smith and freshman Drayton Billie. Branham said Brahman games this year will be a battle of wills.' He will push his team to use their strength, might and force on other teams, wear them down, and control the clock. "I think we are smart enough and disciplined enough that we can put points on the board and wear the other teams down," he added. Branham's offense includes the I formation and single back sets. He said he will also keep some things up his sleeve to surprise his opponents. With no contact this week, injuries have not been a problem. Tyrell Taylor did suffer a hamstring injury in the off season but is expected to be ready for Lake Placid. Okeechobee High School football practice begins Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyHead Coach Chris Branham is in a positive frame of mind as fall football practice begins. By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News The Chobee Athletic Academy reported a successful summer in their inaugural season. They had four softball teams compete in between four and six tournaments this summer. Teams are for ages 8 and under, 10 and under, 14 and under and 18 and under. A 12 and under team is expected to start this fall.

Mr. Ward said it was a good experience for the kids. Three of the four girls' team had coaches who had played at Okeechobee High School. Mary Huff will coach the high school age kids this fall. "It's exciting to see kids play locally as well as teams outside of Okeechobee. In the end it should result in a lot of wins for Okeechobee High School," he added. A tryout date will be scheduled in the near future. The notice will be placed in the Okeechobee News and WOKC Radio in future weeks. Youth soccer league sign-ups will be held Aug. 12-30 at the Sports Complex, 640 N.W. 27th Lane, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. The fee is $35 per boy or girl player, 5 to 14 years of age, and a copy of the participant's birth certi cate is needed to register.
