NEW YORK Details
emerged about an alleged plot
to attack the city's subways with
bombs hidden, in bags and pos-
sibly baby strollers as local and
federal officials jostled over the
credibility of the threat.
A Department of Homeland
Security memo obtained by The
Associated Press said the attack
was reportedly scheduled to take
place on or around Sunday, with
terrorists using timed or remote-
controlled explosives hidden in
briefcases, suitcases or in or
under strollers.
The memo said that the
department had received infor-
mation indicating the attack

Seniors Ana Becerril and
Casey Hoover were named as
the 2005 Brahman homecom-
ing queen .and king at the half-'
time break of the
Brahman/Sebring Blue Streak
football game Friday night at
Brahman Stadium. This
announcement was the culmi-
nation of a week.of homecom-
ing activities at Okeechobee
High School. The fans had
hoped that the Brahman foot-
ball team would put the icing
on the homecoming cake with
a win against the Sebring Blue
Streaks, but the Blue Streaks
dashed the Brahman hopes of a
homecoming victory when they
stopped the Brahmans 21-0.
A huge hometown crowd
filled the stands and spilled over
onto the grounds of Brahman
Stadium Friday night to cele-
brate the annual homecoming
of the Okeechobee Brahmans.
The Streaks won the coin toss

and opted to receive. The two
teams fought through the first
quarter with the ball going back
and forth but never making it
into the end zone.
Five seconds into the second
quarter the Blue Streaks broke
through the Brahman defense
and raced across the goal line
for the first touchdown of the
evening. The point after was
good putting the Streaks into

the lead 7-0.
The Brahmans fought back.
They moved up the field into
Streak territory. Kenny Spencer
plowed his way to the Streak 25-
yard line as the crowd went
wild. LeShawn Henderson then
took the ball around the left side
for a first down on the Streak 13-
yard line. Anticipating a touch-

In a community service proj-
ect coordinated through the
Okeechobee Contractor's Asso-
ciation, Quality Air Condition-
ing of Okeechobee has installed
a commercial quality air condi-
tioning system for the "NSW-
Trident" Sea Cadet program*
located at the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office Marine
Facility at Okeetantie.
"The Association was very
pleased to be able to coordi-
nate the project with our mem-
bers to improve the quality of
the training and environment
for the cadets", said Tony Stark,
president of the Okeechobee
Contractors Association.
Mr. Bud Neese, the owner of
Quality Air Conditioning
arranged with the manufactur-
er, Trane, Inc., for a donation of
a commercial air handler sys-
tem; John Austin and Kim Col-

might be carried out by "a team
of terrorist operatives, some of
whom may travel or who may
be in the NewYork City area."
The nmemo, issued Wednes-
day to state and local officials,
said that homeland security and
FBI agents doubted the credibili-
ty of the information, but it pro-
vided four pages of advice about
averting a possible attack.
In Iraq, authorities detained a
third suspect in the plot and
investigated whether a fourth
had traveled to New York as part
of the scheme, according to a
law enforcement official familiar
with the case.
The official said the man's trip

employees donated the installa-

of the air duct system. John
O'Connell, owner of O'Connell
Services, constructed the air
handler platform; and Joel
Bass, owner of Bass Electric,
installed the system wiring.
"From late March through
late September, the tempera-
ture inside the main bay area of
the building is extremely hot,
and during these months reach
well over 100 degrees during
the day and early evening. It is
very difficult for the cadets to
conduct any classroom training
under these conditions", said

Book bags
Students will be allowed to use
only clear or mesh book bags
beginning Monday, Oct. 3. Clear
or mesh book bags are being
used as a safety measure at both
middle schools. Last year, YMS
allowed book bags on campus
and Osceola Middle did not. The
two middle schools decided to
come together on a plan to allow
students to use book bags. Using
clear or mesh book bags allows
students to carry school materials
with the safety measure of seeing
that only school materials are
brought to school.

to okeenews@newszap:com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
WET FEET: Does anyone have any ideas how to prevent damage
to a horse's feet with all this rainy weather. My pasture has pretty good
drainage, but the rain is coming so fast that everything is swampy. Is
there something I can put on the horse's feet to help protect them?. Or
should I lock the horse in the barn until the pasture dries up again?

CONSIDERATION: It makes me very angry that anyone would
complain because a cop or a deputy dropped his child off at school in
his marked cop car. These men and women in law enforcement put
their own lives at risk every time they put on the uniform. They protect
and serve this community. If you have someone trying to break into
your house in the middle of the night, you expect the cops to get there
and protect you. And they will. But then you complain because they
drop their child off at school on the way to work? Ridiculous! If you
see a cop dropping off a child at school, you should smile, wave and
thank them for protecting this community. How about a little consid-
eration and support for our men and women in law enforcement?

FEEL SAFER: I am a teacher and I love to see cop cars and deputy
cars at school in the morning. It makes me feel safer. I believe it
makes the children feel safer, too. Our children need to know that if
they are ever in trouble or in danger they can go to the police. I ask our
Sheriff Paul May and Police Chief Davis to please let the officers drop
their kids off at school. I love seeing those vehicles at our school.

NO PROBLEM: Everyone I talk to around town has no problem
with cops dropping their kids off at school on their way to work. I
can't figure out who complained in the first place and started all the
controversy. It seems that this is a tempest in a teapot. One or two
mean-spirited people whine and all of the sudden people think it is a
big problem. It's not a big problem. There is nothing wrong or waste-
ful about cops dropping their kids off at school on the way to work. It
is good for the schools. It is good for the kids. Its good for the cops.
Let's get on to discussing something more important and more inter-

I WONDER: With all of the problems this community has, it is pret-
ty dumb for anyone to get upset about a cop dropping his kids off at
school on the way to work. It makes me wonder if maybe that person
has a reason to be nervous around police. Maybe this is someone
who routinely speeds through the school zone and is upset about get-
ting caught?

HAUNTINGS: I was reading a website about haunted buildings
and places in Florida, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any
hauntings in this community? With Halloween coming up, it seems
like a good time to ask.

WATER: There were many comments about the bad water before
the new plant was operational. The new plant now produces excel-
lent quality water. Why haven't we heard about those improvements?
Is it because we only publish or care about bad news? (Editor's Note:
We've had articles in which it is stated how safe the water is to drink
and how it meets all required criteria.)

Letters to the Editor

would gut act
The U.S House of Representa-
tive recently passed, by a narrow
margin, a bill that would gut the
Endangered Species Act.
This bill, H.R. 3824, would
repeal protections against danger-
ous pesticides, actually pay big
developers not to break the law
and take science out of the review
process for large developments.
Essentially, large developers
would be paid public dollars, and
in return would not even have to
manage their lands for conserva-
tion. Most importantly, critical
wildlife habitat protection would
not be called for. You do not need
to be a scientist to realize that
without habitat, any species will

not last long.
The American bald eagle,
Florida's panther,. manatee and
our marine turtles, have all bene-
fited tremendously from the
Endangered Species Act since the
inception of the Act in 1973. As
stewards of this place we call
home, we have a duty to keep it
as livable as we can for future
generations. This bill goes a long
way in ensuring that the creatures
we hold dear shall not be around
for our grandchildren to enjoy.
Please let your U.S. Senators
and Representatives know you
support the Endangered Species
Act and do not want to see it

tance Payment Program is author-
ized by the Military Construction
Appropriations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Appro-
priations Act of 2005. Many dairy
producers incurred devastating
decreases in production due to
cattle losses, stress on producing
cows, and milk that had to be

dumped due to lack of electricity,
closed milk plants and damaged
containment equipment. DDAP

2004 calendar-year losses by pro-
viding payments to offset part of
the commercially marketed milk
losses incurred to in the United

dent in 2004 due to hurricanes.
Dairy producers in counties con-
tiguous to an approved county are

vide adequate proof of the dairy
operation's commercial produc-
tion, including any dumped pro-
duction, from July through Octo-

Payments will begin soon after
sign-up ends. Each eligible dairy
operation's payment will be calcu-
lated by multiplying the eligible
pounds by the average price
received for commercial milk pro-
duction during the eligible
months. In the event available
funds are insufficient to compen-
sate eligible producers, eligible
losses above 20 percent will be
paid at the maximum per pound
rate and losses below 20 percent
will be made at a rate that will
exhaust the available funds that
remain following payment of eligi-
ble losses at the higher level.

FWC urges hunters to heed importation

As fall hunting seasons get
under way, Florida wildlife officials
are reminding hunters it is illegal to
bring home carcasses of any
species of the family Cervidae (e.g.
deer, elk and moose) from ten
states and one Canadian province
where chronic wasting disease
(CWD) has been detected.
The states and Canadian
province where the deadly disease
has been detected are: New Mexi-
co, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming,
South Dakota, Nebraska, Wiscon-
sin, Illinois, New York, West Vir-
ginia and Alberta, Canada. Visit the
United States Department of Agri-
culture's Web site at
d/ for the most up-to-date CWD
"To date, no cases of CWD have
been found in Florida, and we

want to keep it that way," said Deer
Program coordinator Robert Van-
derhoof of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's Division of Hunting and
Game Management. "Hunters can
help by observing the restrictions
placed on bringing carcasses in
from other areas where CWD is a
CWD, first identified in Col-
orado in 1967, is a disease that
affects the central nervous system
and is related to "mad cow" dis-
ease in cattle and scrapie in sheep.
The disease always proves fatal to
the infected animal, but there are
no known cases of it being trans-
mitted to people, domestic ani-
mals or livestock.
Hunters still can bring back de-
boned meat from any CWD-affect-
ed region, as well as finished taxi-

dermy mounts, hides, skulls,
antlers and teeth as long as all soft
tissue has been removed.
Whole, bone-in carcasses and
parts are permitted to be brought
back to Florida if they were har-
vested from non-affected CWD
"Officers will be on the lookout
for violations of the rules on impor-
tation of animal carcasses into the
state," said Julie Jones, chief of
FWC's Division of Law Enforce-
"Our first priority is to educate
hunters about this issue, and we
will investigate all situations involv-
ing CWD and take appropriate
enforcement action," she'said. "It's
very important that we keep this
disease out of Florida."

CWD, visit MyFWC.com/cwd.

Do the thin
strips work?
UCSF's Soller said there's
every reason to believe the com-
panies did their homework and
the delivery system works to get
medicine into the bloodstream.
He cautioned that people should
always read directions and pay
attention to dose size, especially
with an unfamiliar format such as
the strips.
"Read the label, follow-direc-
tions," he said. Compare ingredi-
ents with other medicines to
make sure you don't double-dose
by taking two products with the
same ingredient, he added.
Beyond convenience, there's
the flavor frontier. When cherry,
grape and lemon aren't enough,
try a compounding pharmacist.
These specialized, pharmacists
offer medicines in weird and
wonderful flavors from coffee to
tequila sunrise. With a doctor's
OK, they can put sore throat med-
icine in a lollipop. They can make
sugar-free cough syrups.
They can recreate discontin-
ued favorites.
"Some patients have had a
cold product they used for years

Rev. Whitaker visits Grace Christian aro iff..ures now has a.fu ime

By Ashley Hickox
Special to the Okeechobee
Snipers, T-Rexs, Infantry...
sounds like some weird topics of
discussion for Thursday morning
devotions at Grace Christian
School, but not for Reverend
Wayne Whitaker of Oakview
Baptist Church. Rev. Whitaker, a
youth pastor, came to speak to
grades six through 12 about spiri-
tual warfare on Sept. 22.
Spiritual warfare you might
ask, "What's that?" Well, Rev.
Whitaker directed us to first Peter
5:8 "Be of sober spirit, be on the
alert. Your adversary, the devil,
prowls around like a roaring lion,
seeking someone to devour." We
are in warfare... although, our
war is not against flesh and
blood, it happens to be much
greater. It is the people of God
verses Satan and his demons.
He reminded us that on Dec.
7, 1941 the enemy took us by sur-
prise. He pointed out that ene-
mies do that. We don't see or
know they're coming but we
know who they are.
Rev. Whitaker also pointed

Submitted to the Okeechobee News/Grace Christian School
Pastor Wayne Whitaker of Oakview Baptist Church visited
Grace Christian School on Thursday, Sept. 22 to talk with
grades six through 12 about topics relating to 'spiritual war-

out that Satan starts out like a
prowler, but once he gets you,
he's like a T-Rex who wants to
devour and destroy you. The
enemy is out to get us, we have

to be aware of the sniper. He will
go after us when we're tired,
stressed or worn out.
That's when Satan can get
you, when you don't have the

power or energy to fight back.
Satan can't get to God, but he
can get a child of God. If you're
saved, Satan can't take your soul,
but he can destroy your life, your
testimony, your family, friends,
and all the lives around you. The
ones that could've been saved by
your testimony won't be,
because Satan destroyed you.
The lesson that we ultimately
learned was to stand on faith.
Satan is big, and no weapon can
touch him... except the word of
God. You have two choices, to
act in fear, or act in faith.
Rev. Whitaker left us with a
final message, there are people
who think they are doing the will
of God, but they really aren't. For
example, Rev. Whitaker gave us
the story of when Jesus told the
disciples he was going to die,
Peter immediately stepped for-
ward and said, "May this never
be, surely you will never die." He
quoted Mark 8:33 where Jesus
responded to Peter, "Get behind
me Satan! For you are not mind-
ful of the things of God, but the
things of men."
