Hurricane shelter.€ A hurricane shelter would be a qualityof-life bene“ t to the taxpayers because people could enjoy events there. And as with insurance, you hope you will never need a hurricane shelter but if you do need one, y ou will be glad you invested in it. € As for drainage, the county has sought grants to help with drainage. So has the city. A lot of work has been done already. I hope b oth the city and the county continue to work on the drainage and to seek grants to help pay for it. I have noticed a lot of improvements in the southwest section that used t o ” ood so badly. When a bad storm hits, t here is going to be water on the roads „ as there is everywhere, even in the wealthy neighborhoods on the coast „ but it clears much faster now. Also, the drainage issue is not just a government problem. Many of the issues are caused by other property owners w ho do something that winds up backing up the water on the neighbors. € If the state is going to give out grants and Okeechobee does not bother to apply, s omeone else will get the money. That state money will still be spent, just not spent in t his county. € I am not for building a multi million dollar building just because the money is available and offered; no matter whether it is county, state, or federal .. unjusti“ ed, unnecessary spending is waste in my eyes no matter from which level of government it originates.OCRA€ Join the long line of parents that are sick of the management of OCRA. From what I understand parents have gone to county c ommissioners, but they dont do anything. I dont understand how “ ghts happen on “ elds, money is missing, rules are enforced for some and not for others and leagues sign up keep getting smaller and yet the same people rule our sports “ elds. € OCRA fall ball is so unorganized, teams are stacked and its all about who you know! It is no longer about learning and having fun. I believe that the only kids the team should have automatically on the team are the coachs children and the sponsors children. The rest of the players should go into a blind draw to make it fair. They wonder why the program has gone down. They need to take a step back and go by the rules. Also they need to monitor these coaches and how they treat these kids. This will be my last time doing fall ball also spring is in question. I believe that travel ball would be a better option. € We have no kids or grandkids in OCRA now, but the problem with some teams being stackedŽ has been around a long time. When the teams are fairly evenly matched, the games are a lot more fun for the kids and for the spectators. No one wants to watch a team dominate every game. One-sided games are boring games. The kids on the stackedŽ team dont learn or improve their skills because they dont have any real competition. The kids who have to play those stackedŽ teams get very discouraged. This is why professional sports have drafts, to try to even out the teams and keep the game interesting and challenging. € OCRA is not a county program. The CŽ stands for citizens, not county. So for anything to change, the parents need to get involved, go to the meetings, get someone new to run for president and get someone elected who will make the changes they want. It is your organization. Take it back. Turn it into a program that is dedicated to helping the youth and teaching real sportsmanship. Hold those in charge of the “ nances accountable. Complaining wont bring change. Getting involved can.Drowning€ The canals sit right behind the homes on the lots in Treasure Island. Accidents happen, regardless of the what ifsŽ and the I wouldve, couldve and shouldve.Ž This young childs death has affected all who were involved with this tragedy.Lake level€ It think it is good the lake level is up. Its back to where it was in 2000 when I “ rst saw the lake, almost to the parking lot and not a lot of vegetation. € All the coast does is complain. Wait until the dry season and watch out how quickly they start begging to open the locks.

Club could not provide the monthly dances and entertainment without the help of local business volunteers and sponsors. The Okeechobee County School Board provides the facility for the dances, Okeechobee City Police and/or Okeechobee County Sheriff provides an on-site of“ cer for the entire dance, Matt Buxton provides sound equipment and DJ, the many folks that help get the word out; Okeechobee News, WOKC, Okeechobee The Magazine, Okeechobee Main Street, Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Kenworthy and Sharon Vinson. Also, thank you to the dedicated volunteers who provide six hours of their time for each dance to decorate, set-up, supervise, serve and clean-up! It takes a village to raise children, and I thank everyone who contributes! Businesses that help with sponsorship for the dances are: Ding-A-Ling Deli, Dominos, Publix, Bee f O Bradys, Papa Johns, Buxton-Bass Funeral Home, Waste Management, Walpole Inc., and Rodeo Life USA.

HOMECOMINGContinued From Page 1 By Eric KoppOkeechobee News Of“ cials at the Okeechobee Freshman Campus (OFC) will make the “ nal determination on the fate of a student there who allegedly brought alcohol to school. School Resource Deputy John Fisher, from the Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of“ ce (OCSO), stated in his report that he was told Friday, Oct. 3, about the alleged booze. The student had allegedly poured alcohol into a bottle that also contained a popular soft drink. When Deputy Fisher queried the student about the bottle, the student said he had already drank it and had thrown the bottle away. The student reportedly put the booze into the soft drink earlier that morning, before he came to school. The deputy went on to state that a female student at the school also drank from the bottle. She allegedly told Deputy Fisher when she drank from the bottle she spit it out ... because the alcohol was too strong in it.Ž The deputy indicated he searched the trash for the soft drink bottle but could not “ nd it because the trash had already been emptied. Because of that, he has turned the case over to school of“ cials. Assistant Superintendent of Schools Joni Ard said, without speci“ city, in cases like this the student who brought the alcohol to school could face alternative placement or even expulsion. Generally,Ž she said, we look to alternative placement. Every infraction is different and it depends on the circumstances surrounding it.Ž Alternative placement means the male student would be moved to the Okeechobee Achievement Academy. She went on to say school of“ cials would treat this like any other investigation. The y will speak with all the witnesses involved and come up with a determination of the most appropriate way to handle the case. Report: OFC student brought booze to school By Eric KoppOkeechobee News A local woman was more than just a little surprised when she returned home to “ nd her house in total disarray and a man in her shower. When she confronted the man, he came out of her bathroom clad only in a pair of shorts. Justin Cole Simmons, 32, then began to holler at her and chased her out of her home, stated an arrest report. Once outside, Simmons allegedly caught up to the woman, took her to the ground and started choking her. Because of that, stated Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of“ ce (OCSO) Deputy Brant Harden, Simmons was later arrested on a felony charge of battery by strangulation. He is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on $5,000 bond. Deputy Harden stated in his report when he met with the victim ... she was crying and had blood on her face ... .Ž As it turned out, the blood actually came from a cut on the womans right wrist, stated the deputy. The victim also had a mark on her face but it was not bleeding, Deputy Harden pointed out. According to the deputys report the woman had to sweet talkŽ Simmons into letting her go. Once he did that, Simmons left the home. He was later arrested in the 8000 block of U.S. 441 S.E. Deputy Harden said Simmons was found ... trying to conceal himself inside a silver van.Ž Simmons, stated the report, does yard work for the victim. The woman was checked by emergenc y medical personnel from Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue but she refused to be taken to the hospital. She also reportedly told Deputy Harden that nothing was missing from her home. W oman “ nds home in disarray, man in shower Justin Cole Simmons Mayer was found Friday, Oct. 3, in a pond at the Oasis Village, 1601 U.S. 441 S.E. He went on to say the elderly woman was found around noon near the ponds bank. Actually, she was at weed level,Ž he added. According to the M.E.s report the cause of death was drowning. The report went on to state that a contributing factor in her death was severe coronary artherosclerosis, which is also known as hardening of the arteries. Handling the investigation was OCSO Detective Cari Arnold. In her report, Detective Arnold stated that it appeared as if Ms. Mayer had been doing some gardening. In a direct path from the body towards the house I observed grass, weeds and dirt piled up where it appeared she had been doing some gardening in her back yard approximately 20 feet from the water,Ž stated the detectives report. It appears she was gardening beside a power junction box. There were drops of what appeared to be blood on the power box by the east hinge.Ž Detective Arnold went on to state she entered the womans home and nothing appeared to be out of place. She said a large jewelry box had not been touched and a dish containing quarters beside her bed also had not been touched. Due to lack of evidence to suggest theft, or forced entry, I have no evidence to suggest a crime was committed,Ž stated Detective Arnold. The womans drowning was the second in just four days. The other was a 2-year-old toddler who drowned Sept. 29 in a canal along S.E. 19th Court.

We Treat Kids Too!Great Orthopaedic CareRight Here in OkeechobeeOrthopaedic Specialists at Raulerson offers a full range of orthopaedic services including: € Total Hip and Knee Replacements € Arthroscopic Surgery & Sports Medicine € Pediatric Orthopedics € Work Related injuries 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 patients 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. W ith 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 Having a Primary Care Provider is important, even if you are healthythe 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.

OYFL teams take two of “ ve from Poinciana squad By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Yearling Middle School played a rare double header in volleyball Oct. 2 due to some recent cancellations and came away with a split, defeating Glades Day School while losing to Oslo from Vero Beach. Yearling won the “ rst match over the Lady Gators thanks to an impressive performance at the net and a solid service game. The scores were 25-11, 18-25 and 15-9. In the “ rst game Yearling jumped out to a 9-1 lead behind nine service points from Mallorie Thomas which included three aces. A block and kill by Lynd Lewis kept YMS comfortably ahead. Samantha Ruiz and Thomas added kills after the Gators cut the lead to 16-9. Thomas “ nished off the game with three points including two via the ace. Glades Day raised their level of play in the second game with better serves and fewer mistakes. Thomas had two early points and Lewis two service points as the Lady Bulls built a 7-6 lead. An 8-3 run by the Gators put them ahead and they never trailed by fewer than “ ve points down the stretch. Ashley Bowers had a nice kill for YMS. The third game was mostly controlled by Yearling.

They came back strong and played well,Ž she said. Against Oslo, the Wildcats brought a terri“ c intensity and really pushed the Lady Bulls to raise their level of play. The “ rst game was back and forth and was tied at 16 before Oslo went on a 9-3 run to win 25-19. Oslo completed the sweep with a tight 25-23 victory in the second game.

We didnt want to have four games in a week so the girls pushed through and showed us they could handle the two games.Ž Y MS volleyballers down Gators; lose to Oslo

Frank AltobelloBy R.O. Ackerman The genial young owner of our community’s Western Auto Associate Store hails originally from New York City, where he was b orn in 1924. He received his education there, b efore moving to Niagara Falls for a two-year p eriod. In 1940, Frank entered the U.S. Army. Serving with the infantry, he saw combat service during World War II on Attu and Kiska in the Aleutian Islands, in the Marshall Islands, Leyte and Luzon in the Philippines and on Okinawa. He was wounded in the Philipp ine campaign and again on Okinawa where he received three machine gun bullets to the right leg. The Purple Heart and his other wellearned decorations re ect this widespread service of his country. It was at Ashford General Hospital in West Virginia that Frank rst met the girl who was to become his wife. Ethel was the army nurse who cared for him there. His medical discharge came in April 1946, and they were married in November of that year. For two years Frank owned and operated a restaurant in Charleston, W.Va. where he also attended business college. In November 1948, the Altobellos came to Okeechobee. Frank opened the Western Auto Store in September 1950. Since then the civic-minded veteran and business leader has served two years as director of the Okeechobee Chamber of Commerce, and also was president of that organization for two years. The Altobellos have a charming four-yearold daughter, Mildred Frances. The family attends the Catholic Church. A typical American, Frank’s a baseball fan, and enjoys working in his yard during days off. He has contributed much to the community, and for its future welfare he advocates good, clean honest government above all else.

Red Cross work at the Women’s Club hit a new high this week. Mrs. E.M. Meserve, chairman and director of surgical dressing operations reports that on Wednesday, 2,109 surgical dressings were made and for the rst three days of this week the total was over 4000. The wonderful spirit shown by the women of Okeechobee and the willingness to give so freely of their time speaks well of the patriotism of the women of this country. The quota for Okeechobee is very high for the month of October and it will take many hours of labor to reach this goal. Mrs. Meserve states that she has plenty of room and will welcome additional help on either the morning or afternoon shifts. There has apparently been a slight misunderstanding among some of the lades as to eligibility to participate in this work. It is not necessary that you be a member of the Red Cross in order to help in this project. Any lady who has time to give one or more hours each day or two or three days a week is welcome. Working hours are 9 to 12 and 1 to 5. Mrs. Meserve wants to thank the many businessmen who so willingly help in every way possible. Mr. Mason stops daily and leaves ice so that the ladies may have ice water at all times. This he does at his own expense. Mr. Culbreth runs slides at his theater and makes announcements whenever called upon. The beautiful Red Cross made and hung at the entrance of the Women’s Club was a donation by Mr. Tony Davis. All this ne help is what goes to make one hundred percent co-operation and is highly appreciated by the ladies. The latest contribution has just been made by the colored women of Okeechobee. Wanting to do their part, they have formed a club and have offered their services, reporting afternoons to clean up the work rooms after the day’s work is nished. Mrs. Meserve states this will be a wonderful help and appreciates their thoughtfulness and willingness to do their part very much. Those who have joined in the branch of the service and the days they will work are Agnes Steward and Marguerite (Monday); Ida Bryant, Rena Johnson (Tuesday); Louise Cooley, Annie Tindell (Thursday); Tommie Bass, Laura Bryant (Friday); and Lurena Jackson and Beulah Jackson (Saturday).

Okeechobee Arrest Report By Eric KoppOkeechobee News Deputies from the Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of“ ce (OCSO) had another busy w eek in which they handled some very serious cases and made a number of arrests. They also answered some calls that, without doubt, left them scratching their heads and wondering Huh?ŽSHOTS FIREDDeputy Timothy Porter was called to an RV park shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1, in regard to a shooting. Upon his arrival, the deputy learned that a man had “ red a couple of shots out his bedroom window. The man said he ... heard a prowler so he opened his window and “ red two rounds into the ground.Ž He went on to tell the deputy he didnt actually see anyone, but was awakened when ... he heard moaning and groaning ...Ž outside his window. Deputy Yero Todman reportedly found two 9mm casings. Deputy Todman also discovered one of the rounds “ red by the man did, indeed, go into the ground. The other round, however, struck the mans trailer. Deputy Porter explained to the man while he had a right to protect himself and his property, he should be more careful when handling a gun. The man was also told to call the sheriffs of“ ce if he thought someone was breaking into his trailer. The man ... advised he understood,Ž stated Deputy Porter.WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?Deputy John Hazy was asked Monday, Sept. 29, to settle a dispute between neighbors dealing with a fence between their respective yards. Neighbor X was complaining because Neighbor Y had nailed some plywood on his side of the fence and he wanted it removed. Deputy Hazy then went to speak with Neighbor Y who did not deny nailing the plywood to his side of the fence. He said the fence was too high off the ground and the neighbors dogs kept putting their heads under the fence and messing with his dogs,Ž stated the deputy. Apparently, continued Deputy Hazy, this has been an ongoing feud since the fence was on Neighbor Ys property at different points because ... it did not run straight.Ž In regard to the plywood, Neighbor Y told the deputy the fence was not damaged by the wood and he was leaving it there. I informed both parties this was a petty complaint and would have to be settled in civil court,Ž stated Deputy Hazy before leaving.WHERE THERES SMOKEThe complaint to end all complaints last week actually ended without taking up a deputys time. A dispatcher received a call around 12:14 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, from a woman complaining that a man had taken her Black & Mild cigars. That man, continued the caller, was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and a black and gray tank top. As the dispatcher prepared to send a deputy, the woman called back and said the man had returned her Black & Milds. She advised the problem is solved and we can cancel,Ž wrote the dispatcher in her report. IT REALLY HAPPENED...

MurphyOkeechobee News The Okeechobee bowling team split a match at home versus Port St. Lucie on Oct. 2, the Lady Brahmans prevailed 4-3 while the boys team fell 4-3. OHS coach Carole Olney said it was a good match which was pretty even for both the girls and the boys. She said she would like to see the Lady Brahmans concentrate on spares and avoid open frames. Ashley Byrd led the team with a 337 series and a high game of 340. Catherine Zukosk led PSL with a 317 series and a high game of 184 The boys went to the very last frame to decide a winner in a back and forth match with the Jaguars. Olney said the boys also missed a number of spare opportunities but kept the games close until the end. Brian Chapman had a great day with a 432 series and a high game of 229. Andre w Brancacceia had a 280 series to lead PSL. Brian was on “ re for much of the day. He is starting to “ gure out the Okeechobee lanes and has become more consistent,Ž Olney added. The next home match will be Monday, Oct. 13, at Martin County. OHS bowlers split with PSL squad By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Ashley Snyder had 13 service points, six kills and nine aces to lead Osceola Middle School to an impressive 25-7 and 25-6 victory over Storm Grove in middle school volleyball Monday in Okeechobee. Osceola moved one step closer to a winning season as they secured their “ fth victory in eight decisions. Osceola took control from the start with leads of 7-2, and 9-1 in the “ rst game. Snyder started the match with two aces. Alexi Morgan added two aces and four service points before the Sting Rays could force any kind of volley in the match. Other highlights included winners by Snyder and Aubrie Hataway, and two service points by Delaney Jones. In the second game Osceola jumped out to a 13-1 lead as Snyder added four service points and an ace and Kirstie Crosby followed with ten points including two aces as the Warriors built an 18-2 lead. Emily Rhodes added an ace and Snyder “ nished off the match with three points at the service line. OMS coach Lauren Throop said she was pleased with the effort her team showed in this match. They came out playing really hard. I think we had a good practice last week that got them back in the groove,Ž she said. Throop said the con“ dence builder came at a good time as the team takes on local rivals, Pemayetv Emahakv, who remains undefeated and Yearling. Osceola played in Brighton on Tuesday and travels to Yearling on Thursday. Throop said she was pleased that the team did a better job of communicating on the court. I was actually surprised because weve struggled real hard with communication. We called more balls and were really happ y with them today,Ž she said. We work on serves at every practice. You cant win a point if you dont have a strong serve.Ž Throop praised the teams serves as they were deep and hard to handle most of the match. I think when we work together we pla y a lot better. When we stop talking we fall apart,Ž Snyder said. She felt the team did well because they communicated on the court and played together like a team should, The diminutive Snyder impressed with her leaping ability with one jump kill at the net. She also had a strong serve all afternoon. I have been working on my jumping and I think I can jump pretty high now. My serves can be nerve racking but once you get used to it and have experience, serves become easier and second nature,Ž she said. Snyder paces OMS in net win over Storm Grove Okeechobee News/ Charles MurphyAlexi Morgan was among the Osceola players who had strong serves on Monday. By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Osceola Middle School scored four goals in the second half to break open a tight game as they defeated the Storm Grove Sting Rays 5-0 to remain undefeated in middle school soccer action Monday. Osceola received goals from Jesus Mojica, Alejandro Bucio and Gage Ingram in the latter stages of the match to overwhelm the Sting Rays. Coach Jorje Botello said the team got off to a slow start but woke up a bit in the second half. He said Storm Grove battled throughout the game and kept his team on their toes. I want you all to be at your best at all times. If you want to earn playing time you have to be tough and willing to battle,Ž he told the team afterward. Goal keeper Mark Homes had few chances in the match and admitted it was tough to keep sharp with not a lot of action in the Warrior end of the “ eld. We started off really slow but we ended up coming back and doing well at the end. We have a really good team. We just have to get more practice in,Ž he said. Homes said he basically tries to stay at his best and keep himself in front of the ball at all times in the Warrior net. Fullback Gage Ingram made some nice one on one moves to score his goal in a one on one opportunity with the Sting Ray goal keeper in the second half. He said he was trying to score one goal for the entire match. I was a bit of a ball hog but I needed to get a goal and I did what had to be done,Ž he added. Ingram said he is inspired to be a better soccer play by his mother, Assistant Coach Bobbie Jo Ingram, and his older sister Nikki Ingram, who played for the Lady Brahmans. Ingram said the entire school is excited about how well the school has done this year. We need to restore some respect to Osceola and get a nice banner in the gym,Ž said Ingram. Wing Jesus Mojica had some excellent corner kicks in the match that set up his teammates for easy chances on net. He said the entire team did well but hed like to see improvement in passing and communication. I get tired but I dont really show it. I keep pushing and pushing and give everything that I have,Ž he added. Osceola plays at Yearling on Thursday in a match between undefeated teams. Yearling has dominated the series in recent years.
