Western Martin County — The mystery and splendor of the night sky have fascinated mankind since our earliest ancestors rst looked towards the heavens and contemplated a sea of stars. Stargazing is a universal human pastime, and the desire to explain what we see in the sky transcends generations. Those interested in learning more about stargazing will have an opportunity to view stars, nebulas, planets and neighboring galaxies during Astronomy Night at DuPuis Management Area on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There is a second opportunity to view the moon and other celestial wonders on Saturday, Feb. 8, from 6 until 9 p.m. DuPuis is an ideal spot for stargazing that offers an unparalleled view of celestial wonders because it is far enough away from any light pollution caused by urban and suburban development, yet it is only a short 30mile drive from Stuart. “Astronomy Night is one of our most popular events. On a clear night, more than 150 people typically join us for a night of stargazing,” said Kim Kanter, education and training coordinator at DuPuis. DuPuis Management Area hosts Astronomy Night twice per year in conjunction with the Treasure Coast Astronomical Society. During the event, the Astronomical Society provides a short lecture before hosting an interactive stargazing session. Multiple telescopes are set up so attendees of all ages can observe objects in outer space, gaze upon galaxies and contemplate other constellations. The event is free and open to the public and donations are encouraged to help support educational programming at DuPuis. DuPuis Management Area is an approximately 22,000-acre swath of public land purchased by the South Florida Water Management District in 1986. Educational opportunities such as Astronomy Night are coordinated through the Florida Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Florida Atlantic University. Beyond Astronomy Night, there are many other activities to enjoy at DuPuis Management Area. The property is interspersed with numerous ponds, wet prairies, cypress domes, pine atwoods and remnant Everglades marsh and provides miles of hiking and horseback trails, an equestrian center, graded vehicle roads, various campsites and seasonal hunting. For more information about Astronomy Night, visit www.ces.fau.edu/dupuis or call 800-432-2045, ext. 3339.About the DuPuis areaThe DuPuis Management Area is a 21,875-acre multi-use natural area located in northwestern Palm Beach and southwestern Martin counties. The property is owned by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and was purchased in 1986 through the Save Our Rivers program. Educational activities held at DuPuis include providing courses and eld trip locations for several schools in Martin, Palm Beach and Broward counties, using the property as a living laboratory for a variety of hands-on learning activities, as well as water resource, wildlife and celestial activities during special events for residents to enjoy. Educational activities at DuPuis have been funded by the SFWMD and carried out through the Florida Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Florida Atlantic University.

Arbor Day is a nationally recognized holiday dedicated to the planting and care of trees. The celebration of this holiday began in 1874 when pioneers, who were new to Nebraska, missed having trees around for their aesthetic qualities and for use as wind breaks. Thus, they decided to make a town event out of planting trees and Arbor Day was born. National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, however, due to its subtropical climate, Florida’s Arbor Day is held earlier in the year to take advantage of the optimal tree-planting time. Okeechobee Soil & Water Conservation District encourages the community to celebrate Arbor Day by planting Florida friendly trees. Okeechobee is in plant hardiness zone 9b. For a list of Florida friendly trees and shrubs, please visit the website at www. okeechobeeswcd.com.

Of cer Bart Potter arrived with Kiki, a Malamaw, and Ofcer Matt Crawford showed up with Nero, a German Shepherd. They put both dogs through their paces both inside and outside the squadron building demonstrating how these ne animals not only sniff out drugs, but are capable of much more. Kiki, handled by OCSO Deputy Bart Potter is a Malamaw breed and receives commands in other than English since Kiki was trained in another country. Kiki is known as a single-purpose dog trained only to sniff out drugs. This makes the animal a little cheaper to purchase than a multi-purpose dog. The Malamaw breed is chosen for both its trainability and its life expectancy which gives it a longer service life than some other breeds. Nero, a German Shepherd, is handled by OCSO Deputy Matt Crawford and is known as a multi-purpose dog. They are a little more expensive, but besides snif ng out drugs, this dog can track and nd lost objects that still have a scent on them. Of cer Crawford demonstrated this outside when he tossed an object into the grass and it was found in short order by Nero. It’s interesting to note that these dogs are trained to do their jobs and upon completing their tasks are given a “toy” to play with. That is all they ask in return. That is their reward. And they seem to know when they have completed their task and they should be seeing that toy. Upon some tasks being completed, the tug toy was given to a few cadets. They soon found out that these dogs played tug-o-war with a vengeance. The Okeechobee Composite Squadron would like to thank everyone who supported us during our fundraiser by buying our 2014 calendars which had aerial shots of Okeechobee landmarks taken by our cadets.

T eachers The governor proposed $2,500 for every c lassroom public school teacher. The legislature dedicated the same total amount, but included school administrators and charter s chool personnel. That’s why the amount doesn’t equal $2,500. The district wants to hand out most of the money to teachers, but drastically slash what the teacher salary inc rease will be in future years. The average s tep increase is currently a little over $1,000. T he district wants to slash future step inc reases to $400. They want to add language t hat the number of steps will be negotiated every year, but that is the case every year w ith or without the language. The union has not requested more than one step or adding money to the base salary ever since the economy went south.  It is neither reasonable, nor prudent, regardless of past practices, to demand a perpetually recurring annual salary increase and job tenure. This practice, when applied t o municipal and/or state and local governments, fails to account for factors such as revenue losses, declining student bases (fewer teachers required), and increased operating expenses.  If I am reading the information correctly that has been in the paper and online, the s chool district wants to make the steps about $400 apart and how many steps a teacher gets depends on how well they did on the evaluations and students’ test scores, hence t he merit pay. So some teachers would get more steps, and hence a bigger raise than others. Isn’t that what the state wants, rather t han all teachers moving up one step and t hus getting a standard raise each year based on years of service? How is it “merit pay” if t hose who are considered the “highly effect ive” teachers get the same money as those w ho are just “effective” or even “needs improvement”?  The governor’s of ce information available online states this money is not to be used as a one-time bonus. It states: “It is up to each district school board to determine actual salary increases in accordance with their respective salary schedule and collective bargaining agreements.” It also states: “The governor’s budget recommendation includes recurring funds for this salary increase to be added to classroom teacher’s base salaries.”  Just as people complain about the county government but don’t show up for the county meetings, it seems that teachers complain about the pay but don’t show up at the contract meetings. If those meetings were packed with teachers every time, both the union and the school administration would feel more pressure to get a contract approved.Cell phone use Someone questioned me about driving while using a cell phone. I saw one I had to question. I was waiting at the red light in the middle of town on Jan. 6 when an EMT vehicle heading towards the hospital with his lights and siren on came through the intersection. When he approached me, I noticed that the driver of the EMT was talking on a cell phone.  I would suspect that an EMT driving a vehicle with lights and sirens on might be letting the hospital know the condition of the person they are transporting, perhaps some special emergency medical personnel or equipment was needed the moment they arrived. Of course it is safer not to talk on the phone while driving, but there are emergencies where every second counts.  Only the driver knows why he was on the phone while trying to get through the worst intersection in the county during an emergency call. I would think that someone in the back could be contacting the hospital if it was required. Commercial drivers are not allowed to talk on the phone unless they are using a hands-free device and I would hope that if emergency responders are required to use a phone while driving a county vehicle they would at least use a hands-free device.  If his job requires him to be on the cellphone while operating a county-owned vehicle then he should at least use a handsfree device. I just think that the last thing the county would want is an emergency vehicle driver using a cellphone while operating a county vehicle.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A convicted sex offender in Wisconsin is being held in the Okeechobee County J ail following his arrest on local felony theft charges. According to the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), Niklas Alexander Lee is listed as a non-compliant sex offender in Wisconsin. Records also show Lee is w anted on multiple arrest warrants from several different jurisdictions in Wisconsin. Lee, 31, was arrested locally Sunday, Jan. 12, by the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD) on felony charges of grand theft, dealing in stolen property and dealing in stolen property on the internet. He was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of giving a false name while arrested. Lee was later arrested by an OCSO deputy on misdemeanor charges of giving a false name or identi cation while arrested and driving while license suspended. He is being held in the county jail on a bond of $26,500. Arrest af davits state Lee identi ed himself to local law enforcement as Brian William Zitzler, and said his birth date was Oct. 11, 1980. But after he was booked into the county jail, and his ngerprints were taken, detention deputies learned his real name from the Automated Fingerprint Identi cation System (AFIS) and that Lee’s actual birth date is Aug. 7, 1982. A report by OCPD Of cer Ryan Holroyd stated that Lee was being sought by OCPD Of cer Jack Boon for allegedly stealing an 18 volt drill set and a 2700 PSI gas powered pressure washer from Walmart. Those items had a combined value of $479. Lee apparently loaded those items into a blue Jeep Cherokee and drove away from the store. A couple of hours after Of cer Boon issued a look out for the Jeep, it was located in the Winn-Dixie parking lot by OCSO Deputy Matthew Crawford. The driver of the Jeep reportedly identi ed himself to the deputy as Brian William Zitzler. However, he no longer had the stolen items, indicated the deputy’s arrest report. According to Deputy Crawford, Lee posted the items on Craigslist.com to sell and in a short time received a response from a person in Fort Pierce. The deputy went on to state that the drill set and pressure washer were sold to that person for a total of $225. Michele Bell, of the OCSO sex offender’s unit, said Lee will not be charged with the felony of failure to register as a sex offender. Even though he has been in Florida for some time, she said he has been living in a tent and has not established an address. He is still required to register with the sheriff’s of ce. Mrs. Bell said she registered Lee Tuesda y morning, Jan. 14. She went on to say Lee apparently won’t be extradited. Deputy Crawford’s report indicated Lee is wanted in Wisconsin by: the Muskego Municipal Court for failure to pay contempt of court charges; by the Walworth Count y Sheriff’s Of ce; by the Milwaukee Count y Sheriff’s Of ce for retail theft (two counts); and, by the Racine County Circuit Court for two counts of retail theft and two counts o f bail jumping. A check with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections found that Lee was convicted Nov. 14, 2000, on a felony charge of second degree sexual assault of a child. Although no date was given for his release from prison, he is required to register as a sexual offender for the rest of his life. Lee is listed as a noncompliant offender in his home state.

It is meant to connect the value of literacy with careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Mrs. Scott spent time in the school media center, and in three classrooms visiting with students and their teachers and reading two books to them. Students also had a chance to ask Mrs. Scott some questions. Most of the questions w ere about her position as First Lady and her priorities for the state. She also asked the students questions about what careers they have thought about and their love for learning. She explained to the students that as rst lady she has travelled abroad to eight trade missions as a good will ambassador for the state. She also has been active in promotion of healthy eating and nutrition for children, and is heavily involved in foster child awareness in the state. “I am very honored and humbled to be the rst lady. I hope to be a very good one. I support foster kids, reading and military families,” she said. Superintendent of Schools Ken Kenworthy said he was glad to host Mrs. Scott in Okeechobee. He noted he’s glad they focused on the good things they are doing in the school system and that Mrs. Scott will see schools with different demographics. He said he was happy she chose Everglades because the school is focused on improvement especially in reading this year. Mrs. Scott said she thought Everglades was a wonderful school and she hopes the promotion of literacy will catch on across the state. “I loved reading growing up and I passed that passion along to my children and they’ve passed it along now to their children,” she explained. Principal Leslie Lundy said this was a great opportunity to get positive public relations for the school that had to extend their school day by one hour this year due to struggling test scores. She said she felt the school was headed in the right direction. “It will take a lot of time but we are moving that train in the right direction. It was wonderful to have someone come in and visit our campus and kids, see how well behaved they are, how smart they are and how inquisitive they are. It was great all the way around,” she added. A sign on the wall at Everglades Elementary school said students there have spent 62,580 minutes reading this year. The goal of the initiative is to have students read for a collective 33 million minutes across the state. Mrs. Scott said she loved the visit to Okeechobee and said the kids were so excited to see her. “I want to encourage Florida students to realize that no matter what career they choose, reading and literacy are necessary on the path to success,” Mrs. Scott commented. “I thought their questions were very appropriate and very fun. I loved the visit.” SCOTTContinued From Page 1 Keith Fels of Ocala, Fla., weighed four bass totaling 7 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win the Rayovac FLW Series Southeast Division event presented by Power-Pole on Lake Okeechobee with a three-day total of 14 bass weighing 54 pounds, 15 ounces. For his victory, Fels earned $40,000 and a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor. Fels notched his seventh career top-10 FLW nish on Lake Okeechobee in grand style, banging out a 10-pounder on the second day of the tournament to build an insurmountable lead over the rest of the eld. “I gured out something on Okeechobee I guess,” said Fels. “It’s something different I do with it. I don’t know, it’s kind of a secret. “I was just pitching to holes in the hydrilla,” continued Fels. “It was probably a foot or a foot and a half deep, really pretty shallow. The sh moved in there yesterday; they weren’t in there today. The wind changed directions. It moved them, I guess.” “She (the 10-pounder) hit it and I missed it. I thought it felt like a good one, so I ipped back in and she got it,” said Fels. “Then she got down in the hydrilla and I was pulling up like 50 pounds of hydrilla, and I got it right to the boat and my line broke right by the reel. The line fell down and coiled up by the hydrilla, so I reached down and wrapped it around my hand and pulled it in. My co-angler was freaking out; he said, ‘Oh my God, that’s a 12-pounder!’ “Slowing down was the key,” nished Fels. “I wasn’t getting bit during practice. I was probably shing too fast. I slowed way down and let the bait sit and the sh just came and picked it up.

Any agency or group who has always had an idea for a great summer activity, but never had the means to carry it out, can apply to the Children’s Services Council for a Special Summer Project. This is the seventh year; last year over 1,000 children participated in at least one summer activity. The major goal is to provide a summer program with a maximum of nine (9) weeks for children and youth, ages 4 – 18. These funds are not for one-day events. The project must detail who is going to be served, where the program will be located and the activities the program will provide. Programs must be for Okeechobee County children and cannot discriminate due to race or religion. If an agency already receives a Children’s Services Council grant, the summer project must be written to enhance or expand the existing program. It cannot be the current program. The project application are now available. Call Cathleen Blair or Cheryl Sutton at the CSC of ce at 863-462-5000, ext. 255. The completed application must be returned to the Children’s Services Council of ce at 700 S.W. Second Ave., Room 304, by 3 p.m., Monday, Feb. 10. Decisions will be made for funding at the CSC meeting on Thursday, Feb. 13. Grants available for summer programs By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News  The Okeechobee High School boys soccer team tied Clewiston, 2-2, on Tuesday. The Brahmans got goals from Wilson Barahona and Brian Guerrero and an assist from Daniel Rodriguez. OHS gave up a late goal on a defensive miscue to get the tie. The game was played in frigid conditions at Clewiston High School.  The Okeechobee wrestling team nished in 10th place out of 16 teams at the Steadwell Grow Tournament at Port St. Lucie High School last weekend. Jensen Beach w as the champion and Wellington nished in second place. Top performers for the Brahmans included Cory Vickers who nished in third place at 220 pounds, Cody Grif th who nished in fourth place in the 138 pound weight class, and Greg Hernandez who nished fourth at heavyweight.  The boys soccer team overwhelmed A von Park 9-1 in a match played Thursday night in Highlands County. OHS improved to 10-2-1. Avon Park fell to 0-14-1.  The Brahman boy’s soccer team continued to plow through the competition with a 9-1 destruction of Avon Park last Thursday. J ose Ponce De Leon had two goals and an assist. Brian Guerrero added two goals. Jose J aimes and Angel Alvarez scored one goal apiece. Gabriel Hernandez had two goals. Giovanny Garcia had a goal and an assist. Gustavo Mireles had an assist and Daniel Rodriguez had an assist. OHS coach Lonnie Sears said this was a good match to get a gauge on the future of OHS soccer as he allowed a number of the y ounger players to get signi cant minutes. Gustavo Mireles was brought up from the junior varsity to play some defense and impressed the coaching staff. “He had never played there before and I w as impressed with his patience and how he didn’t panic when he was put in a difcult position,” he said. Five freshmen saw considerable playing time. Jaimes and Felipe Aguirre drew praise from the coaches. Okeechobee swamped Sebring 8-0 on Friday night in Highlands County. Ponce De Leon had two goals for OHS (12-2-1). Brian Guerrero, Gabriel Hernandez, Garcia, Wilson Barahona, and Berto Diaz all had goals. Guerrero, De Leon, and Diaz added assists for OHS.  The Lady Brahman basketball team got an important 57-46 district win over Port St. Lucie on Saturday afternoon. It was a rare matinee for the Lady Brahmans whose game on Thursday was postponed due to ooding on the Treasure Coast. Cheyenne Nunez led three players in double gures with 14 points. Thaddricka Sanders had 13 points and Bethany Stuart added 12 points. Taylor Trent chipped in with nine points and Sha ‘Dajia Williams added seven points. It appears conditioning played a huge part in the Lady Brahman victory as they put up 22 points in the fourth quarter to break open a close game. Okeechobee trailed 11-8 after the rst quarter but led 23-20 at the half and 35-32 after the third quarter. OHS coach Morgan Ungerott said this was one of the best games the girls have played as a team this season. “We had balanced scoring and there was a lot of team basketball being played,” she said. “I was concerned about it being a Saturday game and the kids not being ready but they game out and were able to nish this game on a high note.” Ungerott said the team actually looked tired in the rst half but that each of the players seemed to push each other as the game went along. “We had a lot of fast break opportunities and the kids kept wanting to score,” she said. The Lady Brahmans responded well to various defenses thrown at them by the Lady Jaguars (4-10). A key part of their success was maintaining control of the basketball and running plays. Okeechobee also played well on defense in the fourth quarter as they shut down the Lady Jaguars’ top scoring threats. Valerie Munley had 18 points and Shana Dewitt scored 16 points for Port St. Lucie. “We pressured the ball, slowed them down and limited their rebounds and second and third shot attempts. Hopefully, this win can get us going so we close out the season with some momentum,” she added. Okeechobee Sports News in Brief

MurphyOkeechobee News The Lady Brahman soccer team completed one of their more successful seasons on record with ve wins and two ties and nished the regular season with a scoreless tie, 0-0, against Sebring on Friday night at Brahman Stadium. It was a physical and sometimes nasty battle Friday as both teams worked extremely hard and wanted to get a victory to end the regular season. Okeechobee was issued one yellow card for the physical play. Six seniors were honored at halftime at their nal home game of their careers, Meaghan Bleakley, Rosa Borja, Brianna Nunez, Selina Sanchez, Stormy Stokes and Ivette Vega. Okeechobee had several opportunities to score goals in the match. Vega had a shot only seven minutes into the match and Sanchez had an opportunity that went wide in the rst half. Cristina Tinajero had a shot de ected by a defender near the Blue Streak goal in the rst half. The best chance for OHS to score came w hen Borja's blast hit the top of the goal and w ent out of bounds. Sebring also had a couple of second half corner kicks but couldn't get any solid shots on net. Both squads overcame mistakes by their goal keepers as well in the second half. Sebring's mishandled an easy shot and let the ball go out of bounds for a corner kick. Okeechobee's goal keeper fumbled a ball in front of the net but a teammate was able to kick the ball free. Sebring did have a direct kick from 10 yards away w ith 10 minutes left in the match but the Brahman defense formed a wall that de ected the soccer ball out of bounds. Sanchez said Okeechobee had chances to score but just couldn't get it through the defense. "There were just so many girls near the net and a lot of pressure. It might have gotten into our heads a little bit," she pointed out. OHS coach Sonya Smith thanked the seniors for making this her best season. The team won more games this year than they have in several seasons. She said the team worked extremely hard and she was proud of their record this year. Sanchez said it was bitter sweet to play her nal home match because she might never get on a soccer eld again. She said the team was hopeful they could extend their season and defeat Jensen Beach at Districts. The match was played on Monday night. OHS had tied Jensen, 0-0, in December. Sanchez said she will always remember how hard the two teams fought in her nal home game. "We wanted to win and we did our best. It was pretty nasty with a few elbows and stuff, but we both played equally and were just trying to win," she said. Okeechobee defeated Avon Park 1-0 last Thursday.

It is as simple as going out to get a chest x-ray! Cyberknife Robotic Radio surgery system, created at Stanford University over 10 years ago is unique and better than other systems in the fact that it is the only Radio surgery system that can achieve what is called real-time tracking and killing of tumor.Ž What kind of patients can be helped by Cyberknife? There are several situations too numerous to mention What is Cyberknife Radiation Therapy? Submitted Photo/ Big Lake Cancer Center Cyberknife: Cutting edge technology at work for our patients in Okeechobee.here where Cyberknife would be extremely useful and safe. The following are just a few of them: Patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia, pituitary tumors and tumors of the acoustic nerve called Acoustic Neuroma can avoid major surgical procedures on the brain by getting treated with Cyberknife. Patients with cancers of the brain, spine, lung and prostate are but a few of the cancers that can be helped with one to “ ve sessions of Radio Surgery. An article that was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2010 showed that patients with patients with lung cancer who received Radiosurgery had a survival rate of 55.8% at 3 years versus 20 to 35% for those patients treated with traditional radiation over several weeks. As one of our patients commented, if it is good for patients at Stanford University, it is good for patients from the Okeechobee area!

MurphyOkeechobee News Anthony Knighton hit a key turnaround jumper and added two free throws in the nal 30 seconds to lift Fort Pierce Central to a 54-49 victory over Okeechobee in high school boys basketball action Friday night at OHS. Sylvester Butler had 11 points to lead the Brahmans, (6-9). Tyrell Taylor added eight points and Fred Bradley chipped in with seven points for Okeechobee. It was an emotional and hard-fought game throughout for both teams. Okeechobee's home crowd was into the game and provided some of the loudest fan support of the season in this game. Brahman coach Shawn Hays said his team had a lot of desire and showed a lot of effort in this game. "You saw the competitiveness from our guys and you saw how hard they worked. They were in it from the tip off to the nal buzzer," he noted. Fort Pierce held a 32-27 advantage at the half and neither team would lead by more than ve points in a very tense and competitive second half. Knighton said practice paid off for him as he works every day on free throws and also on his post moves. "It was a good game. We had to ght it out for the whole game and I thought we did a good job," he said. "Okeechobee was a good team they fought hard." Okeechobee got as close as two points in the nal quarter on a 3-point bucket by Eddie Neal. Roshell Thomas also provided a strong drive to the basket for a bucket. Fort Pierce was able to grab some big rebounds down the stretch. OHS had a chance down three with 13 seconds to go but the inbounds pass was stolen by the Cobras. Knighton was able to hit two free throws in the nal six seconds to seal the victory. "I practice my free throws every day; it just comes down to practice. We are getting better," he noted. Hays said Fort Pierce made about two more plays than his team and he was a little disappointed that his team didn't pull down more rebounds in the fourth quarter. "I had my biggest lineup in the game. They must box out and put a body on somebody because that takes away their athleticism. I think we have to tough up a little down low," he added. Hays said the team continues to improve and works very hard in practice. He said as long as they give this kind of effort in games, his team can be a winner. "They've been giving me the effort. We're a different team and we continue to work and continue to get better. If we get this kind of effort we'll be in a good sport by the end of this month," he added. Fort Pierce also won the Junior Varsit y contest. Okeechobee hosted South Fork on Tuesday and travel to Port St. Lucie on Friday.
