County commission The county held budget meetings at 5:15 p.m. Then they said no one showed up. T hey didn’t get the voters time to get there, c ertainly not time to go home after work and maybe grab a bite to eat before going to the meeting. When you get off at 5, it’s hard to b e somewhere before maybe 6:30 or 7. You might have to pick up kids at after school c are. To my mind, 5:15 p.m. is not really an “evening” meeting.  Perhaps an online petition is the ans wer, or at least a start. We want meetings t hat are convenient to citizen participation. W e can call for an Okeechobee New Years Resolution to take back our county. We outnumber them. It is ours. What say ye, Okeechobee?  I like having the county commission meetings online. I can’t often get into town on county commission day, so I watch from home on the internet. But I wish there was a way to ask them questions or ask to make a comment online. Maybe they could set up s ome kind of interface for those at home? Maybe some kind of twitter or facebook feed w here we could post questions they could s ee during the meeting? It’s nice to have it online, but it should be interactive.  The smelly old dragons are dying off and the minions are imploding as we speak. Now is the time. We outnumber them. Do not spread fear. We have nothing to fear b ut fear itself. Okeechobee has to save itself now. Spread Light. It’s Christmas!  If we can’t even get a few voters to care enough to go to a budget meeting, how many of us will show up for regular meetings? I would like to be able to go to a meeting, but I have to admit that I read and heard all kinds of excuses of why more taxpayers didn’t show for the budget meetings. We are too consumed with our lives to go to these meetings. How many on this forum would actually attend the meetings on a regular base? If you get more people to show up during the daytime than at night then I would expect them to hold the meetings during the day. Maybe they could do one meeting during the day and the next meeting during the night to see if people will show up.  Is it because people don’t care or because they think it won’t make any difference based on what they’ve seen in the past?  This past year I got upset with the local government to nally get involved at least by corresponding with the commissioners. Most of them listened to my concerns and they also explained to me why they didn’t hold the meetings at night. I think that if we had enough people to support having the meetings at night that the BOCC would hold them at night but they used the budget meeting as an example. I’m a nobody in this town except I pay taxes but they are open to talk to anyone.  I don’t think the budget meetings were a fair test of the public’s desire to participate since they held them at 5:15 p.m. There was not time for most people to get there. And then the meetings were quick, except the ones packed with sheriff’s of ce personnel, so by the time most folks could get off work and get to the court house, it would have been over. I recall back when they would hold the budget hearings at 7 p.m., people did attend. I know that because I was one of the ones in the audience. But the commissioners want to get it over quickly and head home. I don’t think they really want the people to have a chance to ask questions. Go nativeThis New Year’s, resolve to send a ‘Dear John’ letter to St. Augustine Grass: “Dear St. Augustine Grass, “I know we’ve been together for a long time. When I rst let you into my life, it seemed like a good idea — you looked great and I was getting a lot of pressure to start a relationship with you. But now, I look out my window and see you sprawled out across my yard and I realize that you’re high maintenance, you drink too much, and you have an unhealthy relationship with the landscapers—I see them give you those chemicals. What I’m saying is that it’s not me, it’s you, and…. I’m going native. Yes, this is the right decision. I’ve been talking to my friends the manatees, dolphins, sh, and birds and they agree with me—we’re all sooo over you.” It’s that time of year to start pondering New Year’s resolutions. One fantastic thing you can do for Florida’s environment is to convert your yard to Florida-Friendly Landscaping. This cuts down on water use, which protects Florida’s rivers and aquifer; reduces fertilizer use, which protects our coastal waters; and provides habitat for wildlife. If you live in an apartment complex or an HOA tha t just won’t budge, install a rain barrel, a compost bin, and plant native species of owers, trees, and shrubs in those areas over which you do have control, and talk to your neighbors and the management about making changes to the property that could result in less grass, mowing, fertilizer, and water use, and ultimately, lower maintenance fees.

Oh Father we stand in awe As we contemplate Thy love The perfect gift, the Sinless One Was sent to earth from Thee above. The Holy Babe in a manger lay No place could for Him be found Not much has changed to this very day Man still Him rejects and to Hell are bound. As we search Thy Holy Word From Genesis when Thou the earth did make Some in faith obeyed and thus were blessed If you haven’t yet, now Him as Savior you should take. The Devil can make attractive all Your job, the earth, the opposite sex Money, position, and like Eve’s unbelief caused the fall Imagine a talking, walking serpent’s hex. So at this time of year, let us forgo all cheer Remembering instead that greatest gift of all God’s Holy Son whom He loves so dearly Was sent to redeem us from Adam’s fall. Yes, it’s proper to give gifts to your loved ones But remember His wondrous words Greater love has no man than this Than to lay down His life for us. We await His glorious return Those of us whom His love didn’t spurn With arch angels shout and trumpet sound We’ll leave sinful earth and to glory be bound. Oh, what a day that will be As on my Savior’s face I’ll gaze And myriads of the redeemed the new song will sing Forever throughout Heaven it will ring. Andrew R. McKillop Okeechobee, Fla.

MurphyOkeechobee News Sunni Bearden and Cade Osceola both had six points as the Pemayetv Emahakv Lady Seminoles held off the Lady Warriors of Osceola Middle School on Dec. 19, 23-21. The Seminoles defensive effort in the rst three quarters of the game was enough to defeat the Okeechobee girls, who scored just eight points in the rst 18 minutes of the game. Bearden had six points and seven steals and Osceola added 11 steals and an assist to her six points. Caroline Sweat added eight rebounds for the Lady Seminoles, (5-2). Bri Baker had four points, eight steals, 11 rebounds and two assists for Osceola. Aysia Jones added six points, nine rebounds, four steals, one block and one assist for the Warriors. Alkecia Clayton had ve rebounds and six points, all in the second half for Osceola. Pemayetv Emahakv led 8-6 after the rst quarter, 15-8 at the half and 21-8 after the third quarter. They scored the nal six points of the rst half and buckets by Bearden and Chynna Villarreal built a 13-point lead in the second half. The Warriors attempted a furious comeback in the nal six minutes as they outscored the Seminoles 13-2. A last-second steal by Jones nearly led to a nal shot and a possible tie, but she was not able to shoot before the buzzer. Seminoles Coach Tim Thomas said he didn't feel good about the win because his team didn't nish strong, "We tried to get the girls to run out the clock but they started to shoot up three pointers. For what I don't know?" Thomas said his girls seemed to relax once they got the big lead and stopped playing basketball in the fourth quarter. "Clayton knew how to handle the ball for them and she scored layups. We really couldn't stay with her and she brought them back. I'm glad Osceola came back and made it tough." The Seminoles have lost to West Glades by one point and to Clewiston by 15 points this season. Thomas said his team looks forward to meeting Yearling twice in January. Osceola also lost to Storm Grove Middle School on Dec. 18, 35-7.

Recognizing the need for post-residential transition services that provide these youth with the critical support they need to be successful, all while ensuring public safety, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice awarded two new contracts to Eckerd in Central and South Florida. Eckerd is one of the largest privately-funded nonpro t youth and family service organizations in the United States and a national leader that has given much needed second chances to more than 150,000 children since 1968. Eckerd provides a full continuum of life-changing behavioral health and child w elfare services to 14,000+ children and families annually. "With over 45 years experience operating juvenile justice residential and aftercare programs, Eckerd staff understand the importance and value of ensuring youth who are returning back to their community from residential placement have a collaborative support system that cares for their individual needs and promotes post-placement stability" said Will Jones, Eckerd Chief Operating Of cer. Utilizing an innovative partnership, Eckerd has launched Project Bridge, a transitional service to boys and girls ages 11-21 who are transitioning out of a Florida Department of Juvenile Justice residential commitment program and reside in one of the following counties: Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lee, Manatee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Sarasota, Seminole or St. Lucie. Project Bridge is designed to provide individualized education, mentoring, vocational programming, transportation and related support through services of Eckerd and their key partners. Youth who are scheduled to be released from commitment programs will be referred to Eckerd by the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. Upon screening and referral acceptance, appropriate youth will be assigned to an Eckerd Transitions Coordinator who will work as a liaison to the Juvenile Probation Of cer. Youth will receive a series of assessments that Eckerd staff will use to develop an individualized service plan. Youth will then be referred to the appropriate Project Bridge partners as well as other community resources for services tailored to their needs. Project Bridge partners include: Paxen Learning Corporation which provides life and career readiness skills training, GED preparation and academic remediation support Home Builders Institute (HBI) which provides career assessments, pre-vocational workshops, career based mentoring, industry-recognized credentialing, job shadowing and/or career placement. Vocational training offered includes The Pre-Apprenticeship Certi cation (PACT) and OSHA 10. Henkels & McCoy (H&M) which provides career assessments, pre-vocational workshops, career-based mentoring, industryrecognized credentialing, job shadowing and/or career placement. Vocational credentialing includes SafeStaff, Customer Service, and Microsoft Of ce. "Project Bridge is a collaborative approach designed to be a one-stop shop for education, vocation/employment, mentoring, and other supportive needs as youth transition into their home communities" said Ana Albrecht, Eckerd Operations Director. The ultimate goal of Project Bridge is to build a collaborative system of communitybased services and providers that address the transitional educational and vocational needs of post commitment youth in effort to reduce recidivism and promote communit y safety.

Okeechobee 9 Okeechobee News December 25, 2013 TALLAHASSEE — Countless more Floridians will die or be injured unless the Legislature puts the brakes on an ill-advised proposal to raise speed limits on certain Florida highways, three leading safety advocates warned today. Across the country, they pointed out, states that have raised highway speed limits have consistently experienced more crashes as drivers exceed their ability to safely operate vehicles. John Ulczycki, vice president, strategic initiatives with the National Safety Council, and Walter Dartland, executive director of the Consumer Federation of the Southeast, w ere joined by Wakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creel at a news conference to oppose higher speed limits. The trio said speed limits should be based on science and safety, not political considerations. “It’s clear that injuries and fatalities go up w henever someone raises the speed limit,” Mr. Ulczycki said. “Raising speed limits will increase the likelihood of a crash, and the government would in effect be telling people it’s safe to drive faster. This means even more people may come to falsely believe that speeding is safe, and that’s a very dangerous outlook.” “I spent 30 years watching people die on the roads, and I can’t support anything that would add to that sad body count,” added Sheriff Creel, who served 30 years as a Florida Highway Patrol trooper. “This proposal is a bad idea that would be a dangerous law.” While Florida’s current speed limits have remained constant, the number of crashes and fatalities has declined steadily as motorists heed safety warnings and vehicle safety improves. According to DHSMV statistics, from 2007 to 2011 (the last year before reporting methodology changed), the number of crashes across the state dropped 11 percent, from more than 256,000 to less than 228,000. During the same time period, fatalities declined 25.5 percent, from more than 3,200 to 2,400. “We’re doing better and better keeping people alive at current speeds. It’s just inevitable that higher speeds would mean more crashes,” said Mr. Dartland. “It’s a bad idea from a safety standpoint, and that problem is made even worse when you consider the impact to consumers of higher insurance rates, reduced fuel ef ciency and other societal costs.” With 15.4 million licensed drivers and millions of tourists using the state’s roadways, much of Florida faces chronic traf c congestion, Mr. Ulczycki and Mr. Dartland noted. A 2012 study by Movoto and the Allstate Insurance Company concluded that, based on a variety of factors, Florida is home to three of the four U.S. cities with the worst drivers: Miami, Hialeah and Tampa. The Governors Highway Safety Association reported last year that almost one-third of all traf c fatalities are speed-related, and the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies reported in 2006 that, other things being equal, a 10-mph increase in the speed limit on a typical high-speed roadway can be expected to lead to about a 3 percent jump in crash counts. That same study found that increasing the speed limit from 55 to 65 increased the probability of a fatal crash by 24 percent, while advancing it from 65 to 75 increased the likelihood by 12 percent. “There is already too much blood on the highways of our nation,” Mr. Ulczycki said. “Impatience is no good reason to make our highways even more dangerous by raising the speed limit. It’s simply not worth the risk.” The proposed legislation has been proposed by Senate Transportation Chairman Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Sen. Jef f Clemens, D-Lake Worth. Experts warn: More crashes, deaths inevitable if Florida raises speed limit The following individuals were arrested on felony or driving under the in uence (DUI) charges by the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO), the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD), the Florida Highw ay Patrol (FHP), the Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) or the Department of Corrections (DOC).  Christian Gerard Siani, 40, U.S. 441 S.E., Okeechobee, was arrested Dec. 19 by Deputy Leland Schoonmaker on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance (cocaine) and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Okeechobee Arrest Report The holiday season is a time for parties and social get-togethers with family and friends. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when more impaired motorists are on our highways. The Florida Highway Patrol is urging Floridians to be responsible this holiday season and don’t drink and drive. In a continuing effort to make our roads safer, FHP has joined with agencies from across the nation and increase its law enforcement efforts on impaired drivers as part this month’s national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through Jan. 1, 2014. Driving while impaired is a crime that seriously risks your safety and the safety of those around you. Even having one drink and then driving is not worth causing a trafc crash, serious injury, or worse—death. Last year in Florida, more than 800 people lost their lives due to alcohol related traf c crashes. “The holiday period is a time for celebration, but it’s also a time when our roads become more dangerous and deadly,” said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “The patrol does not tolerate impaired drivers on our road and we will be happy to introduce you to new ‘bartenders’ if you drive while impaired.” FHP: Drive sober, or get pulled over

Suite F, Okeechobee, FL • 863-763-8000 FAMILY MEDICINE W hen you are sick or need to see a doctor, you likely do not feel or act like your normal ‘healthy’ self. Whether you are experiencing fatigue, dizziness, nausea, or a host of other symptoms, y our ability to thoroughly communicate about your condition and comprehend the doctor’s medical advice may be compromised. This is just one reason w hy it is benecial to have an existing relationship with a Primary Care Provider, before you actually need one. Another benet to having an existing relationship with a Primary Care Provider is having a baseline point of reference for your physical health (for example your weight, cholesterol & blood pressure). This knowledge, as w ell as you and your family’s medical history, can help promote an accurate diagnosis and help proactively monitor patients’ risk factors. Generally a patient’s overall comfort level and condence in their physician is increased when the patient has an existing relationship with the physician. W ith this increased condence, comes trust. When patients know and trust their physician (vs. meeting the physician for the rst time when they are sick or need healthcare) patients can more easily and openly communicate ALL of their health and w ellness concerns. Certainly patient outcomes benet when physicians have the whole picture of their patient’s health. One of the reasons people give for not Having a Primary Care Provider is important, even if you are healthyproactively seeing a doctor is their lack of time. If you think you are too busy to have your cholesterol levels checked, just imagine how your schedule will be affected if you suffer a heart attack? Another reason people give for not visiting a doctor annually is that they are worried about what the doctor, lab results or a screening may reveal. Ignorance is not bliss, when it comes to your health. Studies have shown that early detection and treatment are critical to a successful outcome, whether the diagnosis is breast cancer, diabetes or heart disease. A very popular reason for many people to avoid scheduling a wellness visit is uncertainty regarding the cost and how to pay for the visit. Yet, many insurances, as well as Medicare, often include an annual wellness visit in their benets. Contact your insurance provider to learn if annual wellness visits are included in your health plan.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee NewsErika Cortes, Adileny Barajas and Mary Grace Bates had goals and Tamija Douglas made four saves in net as the Lake Placid Lady Green Dragons shut out Okeechobee High School, 3-0, in high school girl’s soccer action Dec. 20 at Brahman Stadium. Okeechobee had their chances to score, which included two one-on-one opportunities with the goal keeper in the second half but were unable to get the ball into the net. Coach Sonya Smith said her girls probably didn’t expect this chance, “They got a little too excited and they just choked. W hen the moment came they weren’t prepared for it. We’ll de nitely work on it.” Lake Placid scored off a corner kick 12 minutes into the match and had several balls near the Brahman net in the rst half. Okeechobee made just two mistakes on trying to clear the ball and that led directly to Green Dragon goals. A second goal four minutes later put Lake Placid (9-3-3) in control. Dragons Coach John Merlow said his team is a district title contender this year. Bates is ranked sixth in the state in scoring with 14 goals this year. Douglas is the second ranked goal keeper in the state in Class 2A as well. He said his team hangs their hat on defense. “This is the strongest defense I’ve had. W e weren’t at full strength at the beginning of the season as a lot of our athletes play volleyball or swim. We have clicked at the right time and now have won six matches in a row. It is nally coming together,” he added. The Lady Brahmans played without Stormy Stokes in net. Cristina Tinajero played well at times but lacked the experience that Stokes has given the team this y ear. She made a few nice stops in the second half to keep the score respectable. Coach Smith said her team might have been suffering from the last day before break blues, “Between exams and having a player gone and a u going through the team, this week hasn’t been our best.” Coach Merlow praised the Brahmans though for their effort and their defense in this match and insisted they had nothing to be ashamed about. “I thought their defense was a lot stronger than our earlier match, a 5-0 Lake Placid victory. I like playing Okeechobee because they play hard and give us quality play. We don’t want to play a team that is a pushover,” he said. He said his team was aggressive around the net and they simply took advantage of some Okeechobee errors. Okeechobee coaches continue to stress better communication and more accurate passes. In the rst half the team appeared sluggish, with players bunched up in the middle of the eld not moving as much as they have in other matches. The Lady Brahmans did come out reenergized after a halftime pep talk and put some pressure on the Dragons. Each time they got within 20 yards of the goal, Lake Placid was able to clear the ball down the eld. One Brahman free kick from 15 yards away went well wide. Lake Placid scored the nal goal in the 28th minute of the second half. Douglas made a sliding save on a possible breakaway and an outstanding effort by Brianna Nunez to single handedly out run the Dragon defense, also resulted in a save by Douglas. Coach Smith asked the players to keep active by running or walking during the break. She also wants them to think about future matches and their plan of attack. She admitted a two-week break in the middle of a season is tough on a team, “In soccer you have two breaks, one week for Thanksgiving, and two weeks for Christmas so it’s dif cult. It throws you off. I hope we practice well over the break and we hope it’ll be enough to help us for the last three regular season games and our district tournament.” The soccer team will hold a 5K run / walk as a fundraiser on Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Taylor Creek Storm Water Treatment Area off 441 North. Entry fees are $20 prior to Jan. 18 and $25 on the da y of the race. Each participant will receive a t-shirt.
