Rodeo cowboy out of ICUSpecial to the Okeechobee News Florida’s Cow Town Rodeo started off in a bloody horror as rodeo fans watched the rst bull rider out of the chute, Jeffrey Ramagos, 21, suffer serious injuries from a head-to-head collision with the rodeo bull, Big Deal. Ramagos, from Zachary, La., is now out o f ICU and in a regular hospital room, “healing at a miraculous pace,” said his mother Jennifer Hopkins. Ramagos had his tracheotomy tube removed March 18 and is starting to speak. He has been able to eat pudding and soft food, and is walking daily. Ramagos is on the road to recovery. Just after the accident, other bull riding friends o f the injured rider grabbed his wallet and sent it with the medics, meanwhile others made phone calls and tracked down an emergency contact that could maneuver the patient privacy laws and obtain information. Once informed, Ramagos’s mother and stepfather were contacted and on the next ight to Florida to be with their son. After the rodeo, hoards of bull riders and rodeo fans hitched rides and drove themselves to the Lawnwood hospital to check on Jeffrey. The Okeechobee County Cattlemen’s Association, who produces Florida’s Cow Town Rodeo, also reached out to rodeo fans via their Facebook page, to let the public know of Jeffrey’s status, as well as where they could donate, send owers, or give nancially. A Go Fund Me donation site was created by Jeffrey’s mother, and has already raised more than $1,000.

Special to the Okeechobee News Mystery author Lesley A Diehl is back with another sassy gal protagonist who eagerly takes on murder in Big Lake Country. First there was Emily Rhodes, retired preschool teacher turned bartender from Dumpster Dying and Grilled, Chilled and Killed who seemed to trip over dead bodies wherever she went w hether it was to take out the trash or to eat a little barbeque at a local festival. Now Ms. Diehl has created another protagonist who nds life in the Okeechobee area a bit more daunting than she might have expected. With her business partner and best friend Madeleine Boudreaux, Eve Appel has moved from Connecticut to set up a high-end consignment shop in rural Florida. In “A Secondhand Murder,” the gals take in fancy designer clothes from West Palm matrons looking to offset recent stock market losses. The consignment shop business should boom unless the body on the dressing room oor scares off Eve’s customers. She is author of several short stories and a number of mystery series including the microbrewing series (including “A Deadly Draught” and “Poisoned Pairings”), a rural Florida mystery series (including “Dumpster Dying” and “ Grilled, Chilled and Killed”), and her most recent, “A Secondhand Murder,” the rst in The Eve Appel mystery series.

Good Samaritans Friday night, I was in great need of help when a young man and lady stopped t o assist me. I am so pleased to say they w ere a gift of God to me at that moment. W hile trying to call for help another young man and young lady also came to my assist ance. Sadly, I did not get their names but w ould like to publicly thank them and say t hese young people are the backbone of our c ountry. They are our Good Samaritans of t oday. Be kind, good, considerate, and love our upcoming American citizens. God is not Dead. He is alive and loving all.Racism Racism is never going to end, and for t hose that use their skin color as a crutch, an excuse, or reason why they can’t or don’t s ucceed are just as ignorant. It doesn’t matt er what color your skin is if you are an honest working human being. People today are s o consumed with everyone else’s lives, or drama. Mind your own, do what you need t o do to earn an honest living, who cares if someone called you a name. They don’t live your life. They don’t endure your struggles, therefore they don’t know. Keep peace of mind with that alone. All races are molesting innocent children, committing robbery, and murders. Hate does not know color and people are not born to hate, they are taught it. So, if you don’t want to wind up in jail, stop being thugs. Learn proper grammar, get a job, and show your race respect.Texting and driving I am glad the sheriff’s of ce is trying the educate the kids about the dangers of texting and driving. That is something that everyone should keep reminding each other about. Turn the phone OFF before you start the car. Never use the phone while driving. When you park at your destination, turn the phone back on to check messages. Texting while driving causes accidents. Don’t do it. Turn the phone off. It can wait. You need to give your driving 100 percent of your attention.  In regard to the dangers of texting while driving, parents need to set the example. When you get behind the wheel of a car, let your children see you turn your phone off, or else hand the phone to one of the children and let them be the communications of cer while you are driving. If the phone rings, that person can answer it, explain that you can’t talk right now because you are driving, and relay any urgent messages.

Larry Sanders and Pat JohnsonClean it up!Could we clean it up? Most of our roads and highways are well kept along the sides. The sheriff’s department is out quite often with the inmates. They pick up all the trash. We really appreciate them doing this. But, there is something I would like to see cleaned up. Between State Road 710 and the traf c light for Everglades Elementary, there are two huge piles of trash. One has been there over a year and spills into the highway. There have just been two tires added recently. The other one is nearer to the light. I called Waste Management—they told me it wasn’t their problem. I called Code Enforcement—the lady there said maybe FDOT would clean it up. No luck. Who do I ask now? Thanks, Frankie Russell Letters to the editor

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Okeechobee News March 19, 2014 The Professional Cowboy Rodeo Association, along with Justin Boots, has a Cowboy Relief Fund where medical bills for these types of injuries can be subsidized, and both have started their process in helping the family. “It was incredible to see not only the people in the rodeo stands that day, but the rodeo foundation, bull riders, and people across the nation, support Jeffrey’s recovery. The rodeo community is a family,” said Matt Clemons, former pro rodeo bull rider and owner of the bull involved in the accident. “A lot of people outside rodeo don’t understand that this is part of our heritage — like the running of the bulls or bull ghting in Spain — it’s our tradition. The bull that Jeffrey was on when he was injured is one of my tamest bulls, as a matter-of-fact, my oneyear-old son could pet his face when I was feeding the bull. These animals aren’t killers or out to get anyone; they’re trained to buck — that’s their job.” Veteran rodeo announcer, Jerry Todd added, “rough stock riders know prior to riding an animal that it is not a question of ‘if’ you will get hurt, but ‘when’ you will get hurt.” Ramagos has already said he’s going to start doing squats so he’ll ready to get back on a bull again as soon as possible. Ramagos bought his PRCA card in late 2011 and has ve PRCA rodeo titles to his credit, winning in Mobile, Ala.; Ada, Okla., and Mobridge, S.D., as a rookie, and Hattiesburg, Miss., and Center, Texas, a year ago. He nished eighth in the Southeastern Circuit last year and was 72nd in the world standings with earnings of $16,330. He was eighth in the Southeastern Circuit this season at the time of his injury.

James Dylan Fogleman, 27, was arrested Sunday, March 16, on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, aggravated assault with a deadly w eapon, false imprisonment, aggravated child abuse (two counts) and possession of a rearm by a convicted felon. He was also arrested on misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and battery. Fogleman is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on $86,000 bond. An arrest report by Deputy Yero Todman, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated Fogleman entered the woman’s home around 5 a.m. Sunday. When she awoke, she reportedly saw the man standing in the doorway of her bedroom with “... a revolver pointed in her general direction ....,” continued the report. According to the deputy’s report a child was in the bed with the her at the time. At one point Fogleman allegedly cocked the hammer back on the pistol and threatened to blow the woman’s brains out. Deputy Todman said at some point Fogleman walked over to the bed, pointed the gun at the woman’s head and ordered her to the living room. Once in the living room Fogleman apparently told the woman if she wanted to live she would leave with him. She refused to leave because she didn’t want to leave her two young children alone in the home, stated the deputy. But Fogleman demanded she go with him and even threatened to kill one of the children if she didn’t, pointed out the report. As the woman began to walk to the front door, Fogleman allegedly kicked her in the leg which caused her to fall down a stairway, the report stated. Deputy Todman went on to state that the woman nally convinced Fogleman she would not press charges so he let her return to her bed where the children were sleeping. He apparently then fell asleep on the oor. As Fogleman slept, the woman gathered up her children, ed the home and drove to the sheriff’s of ce and led a complaint. Other OCSO deputies intercepted Fogleman, who was driving into town to meet with the woman, and placed him under arrest. While searching his Ford pickup truc k the deputies reportedly found eight acetaminophen with codeine pills; a clear liquid that was later identi ed as a steroid; and, two glass smoking pipes containing a residue. When eld tested, that residue allegedl y indicated a positive result for the presence of marijuana. Deputy Todman recounted how he and OCSO Deputy Corporal Randy Thomas returned to the woman’s home to search for the gun. The gun, a .22 caliber High Standard nine-shot revolver was found hidden under a tree outside the home. It was not loaded. The OCSO deputy pointed out that a background check indicated Fogleman is a convicted felon in Florida and has a prior conviction for battery. Man accused of threatening to kill woman, child James Fogleman Area man charged with molesting child Trail program is plannedThe Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association will present a program on “Palm Beach County’s Trail Connections.” Highlighting the connections between the county parks and natural areas.

MurphyOkeechobee News Okeechobee High School’s baseball team scored more runs in one game than they had during the entire season Friday as they pounded out 15 hits and defeated outmatched Fort Pierce Westwood 18-1 at OHS. Okeechobee (2-6) got three hits from Christian Crews and Kevin Coleman, and two hits apiece from Bailey Kirton, Paul J ackson, Layton Thomas and Gabe Greseth in the blowout victory. Coleman pitched three solid innings of relief, allowing an unearned run, one hit, w hile striking out three batters. Okeechobee held the Panthers (0-10) to only one hit in the contest. Brahman coach Eric Kindell said he was impressed that his guys stayed in the game mentally after they built a big lead. “That is hard to do sometimes when the game gets out of control,” he explained. “They kept their heads in the game, they respected the other team and we got better. There is nothing wrong with a little vote of con dence with this home win.” The Brahmans jumped all over Panther starter Kyle Ryan as they sent nine men to the plate in the rst inning and 14 batters to the plate in an eight-run fourth inning against a pair of Panther relievers. Ryan featured a side armed repertoire that included most curve balls and change ups. The Brahman hitters had to be patient and did a pretty good job adjusting to the soft tosser. “I thought the guys did well, they adjusted after the rst at bat, and put more pressure on the pitcher,” Kindell added. Crews said the team took the game seriously, played as a team, hit the ball hard and did a good job adjusting at the plate, “It’s not like we got walked a lot we just hit the ball w here we needed to.” Crews said the team is not used to the slower velocity. He said he liked the way his team has been playing and noted they still have a chance to be a good team this season. “We’ve played a lot of good baseball. We just have to stick together, not get so tired, and play our hearts out. That is the only way we’ll win games,” he added. The Brahmans scored ve runs in the rst as Trenton Hickman was hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on an RBI single by Jackson. Layton Thomas added an RBI single, Crews an RBI double and Coleman an RBI single in the inning. Crews added a two-run double in the second. Thomas and Crews added RBI hits in the third. Ryan allowed 12 hits in three innings plus and was charged with eight earned runs. Okeechobee also liked the offerings of relievers Tyler Page and Anderson Howard as they added three more base hits and were hit by pitches on three occasions in the fourth inning. The Panthers’ only run came in the fourth on an error and a base hit by Cody Hankins. The Panther third basemen also made a diving catch on a foul pop in the third inning. Kindell said his pitchers threw well in the game. He said Coleman has had a few arm issues but is expected to be a contributor down the stretch. “He is de nitely one of our top four guys. We have waited on him and he can throw the ball. He looked good tonight,” he said. Kutter Crawford started for Okeechobee and struck out ve of the six batters he faced in two shutout innings. Coleman allowed just one hit and struck out three in three innings of relief. Spring break will be a busy week for the Brahmans as they compete in a West Palm Beach tournament Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. They return home to face St. Albans of Washington, D.C., on March 22. Kindell said the ve games in six days should really help his team. “A lot of our kids will see action. I’ll be happy with the results good or bad,’ he said. “Some of the teams we play will be tough, but we’ll play hard and compete.” Brahmans’ hit parade topples Westwood, 18-1 Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyBailey Kirton was one of several Brahmans who had good games at the plate Frida y as OHS wallo p ed Fort Pierce Westwood.

CALL NOW 863-467-9500Big Lake Cancer Center1115 North Parrott Avenue, Okeechobee Exceeding patients expectations~ every day!Ž 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 bene“ cial to have an existing relationship with a Primary Care Provider, before you actually need one. Another bene“ t 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 Having a Primary Care Provider is important, even if you are healthypatients risk factors. Generally a patients overall comfort level and con“ dence in their physician is increased when the patient has an existing relationship with the physician. With this increased con“ dence, 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 wellness concerns. Certainly patient outcomes bene“ t when physicians have the whole picture of their patients health. One of the reasons people give for not proactively 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 bene“ ts. Contact your insurance provider to learn if annual wellness visits are included in your health plan.
