Page 5 Herbert Hoover Dike monitored for seepageBy Katrina ElskenSpecial to the Glades County Democrat U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) inspectors are keeping close watch on two seepage areas in the Herbert Hoover Dike, according to Lt. Col. Thomas Greco, USACE deputy commander for South Florida. Seepage is normal and common in the 143-mile earthen berm that encircles the lake, he explained. There are usually 12 to 15 seepage areas, mostly along the south end of the dike. Most of these are “level 1,” where wet spots can be found or “level 2” where water can be seen on the surface but measurable water is not owing. Where the water level of Lake Okeechobee is higher than the land level on the other side of the dike, the pressure forces the water into -and sometimes through -the dike. The higher the water level rises, the greater the pressure against the earthen berm. The Corps tries to keep the lake level between 12.5 and 15.5 feet above sea level, which is considered an optimal balance for safety, the environmental health of the lake and water supply needs. At 16 feet, the chance of a dike breach is about 5 percent according to governmental studies. At 18 feet, the risk of dike failure is about 45 percent. At 20 feet, dike failure is expected. On Aug. 14, the Corps was monitoring two “level 3” seepages through which clear water is owing. A level 3 seepage in Reach 1 (the area between Port Mayaca and Belle Glade) is owing at about 2.5 gallons per minute. Lt. Col.

From high blood pressure to cancer, serious ailments often strike, despite efforts to maintain good health. With the rapid pace of medical advancements and treatment options emerging, conventional medical wisdom can sometimes lag behind innovations in disease management. Furthermore, there’s often little attention paid to nutrition’s role in health conditions. “Our healthcare system is a disease model, not a prevention model, and reimbursement is based upon sickness, not wellness. We need to better integrate all facets of care,” says Dr. Steven V. Joyal, chief medical of cer with Life Extension, Inc., an organization dedicated to increasing the functional human lifespan. It’s this thinking that spurred the creation of Life Extension’s 2014 edition of the Disease Prevention and Treatment Book, which seeks to ll those gaps. From cancer to multiple sclerosis, the book offers 1,400 pages of information on integrating pharmaceutical treatment options, nutritional support and lifestyle changes for optimal health. For example, high blood pressure: A major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease, high blood pressure threatens the life of every third American adult. Intensive lifestyle changes can ease blood pressure management. When this isn’t enough, pharmaceutical options can help. For example, blood pressure is best controlled with lower doses of multiple antihypertensive medications rather than a single large dose of medication. Furthermore, side effects can be greatly reduced. “Many patients are lulled into a false sense of security by normal blood pressure readings at their periodic doctor’s visits. But quite frequently, patients experience gaps in control, putting them at risk for stroke and heart attack,” says Joyal. Joyal recommends considering the following: With an inexpensive at-home blood pressure monitor, take readings at multiple times throughout the day, tracking values over time. A doctor can determine whether to modify the current treatment regimen based upon the results. Stay t and exercise. A healthy body weight and high degree of cardiorespiratory tness reduce hypertension risk, and can help one achieve better control if one is already suffering from hypertension. Hold the salt. High sodium intake can make high blood pressure worse. Read labels. Even if one is not adding extra salt to meals, many prepackaged convenience foods, meats and cheeses contain signi cant amounts of sodium. Get plenty of bene cial nutrients, especially potassium and magnesium, which are important for vascular health. Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis could pose more than just a risk to comfort. Systemic in ammation hastens the onset of other age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease. “For optimal longevity, we need to integrate lifestyle changes with pharmaceutical treatments, rather than blindly assume that all a patient needs is more medication,” says Joyal. In addition to doctor-prescribed treatments, Life Extension researchers have scoured medical literature, nding several nutrients that help support health in rheumatoid arthritis patients: sh oil, krill oil blend, Gamma linolenic acid, vitamin D, vitamin B6, green tea extract, quercetin, and folate. By taking advantage of new ndings in medicine and science, optimal health may be better achieved. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 New Health Findings Can Help Combat Common Ailments PHOTO/ COURTESY: LIFE EXTENSION BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI have noted the proliferation of honori c titles people like today, one of the most common being “doctor.” One medical professional is lobbying to have the title restricted to medical doctors (this came as no surprise to me!) and was reminiscent of years gone by when the “doctor” was involved in healing of people and given respect in his community. Nowadays, there are scads of “doctors.” It’s interesting to me to look at how the title is sometimes conferred. Certain religious institutions offer doctoral degrees for a few summers of home reading and a rather lengthy “term paper.” “Schools” offer them with varying degrees (no pun intended) of rigor and they seem to have an appeal to some who simply must have that title. For me, it came after three and a half years of full-time study and earning two Master’s degrees, one from a secular university and one from a seminary. My school was accredited (many are not accredited) by the U.S. Department of Education and regional accrediting agencies. My work was in one of the healing arts -an adjunctive skill to my ministry. In Jesus’ day, “Rabbi” was a title of dignity and given to designate those specially revered. Jesus cautioned His followers that there was an equality among them, that they were to follow the one Master and Teacher (Matthew 23:10). He even took exception when a ruler called Him “Good teacher ...” (Luke 18:18), not being concerned about being called “teacher” or “rabbi” but “good.” God alone was designated as “good,” Jesus’ teaching came with a sense of place and humility. He was revered by the ruler because of what He did and taught, not because of titles. I regard it as unfortunate that we do not hold “teacher” in the same esteem as it once was held: an honorable profession worthy of being respected with the same dignity as that of all true professionals. Many of them have levels of education equivalent to those in the healing arts and have much to offer to those they serve. I was behind a teacher recently at a check-out counter. She was stocking up on school supplies -crayons and pencils, notebooks and book-bags. There were too many items to have been a purchase of her own children; it was obvious to me that she was a teacher. I told her, “I hope they appreciate it!” and watched as a three-digit total was rung up. She smiled and commented that she was trying to take advantage of the tax rebate that comes annually for school items. Her purchase was sizeable enough to make this rebate worth seeking on a teacher’s salary. I knew I was in the presence of a professional, one worthy of being called “teacher” in the fullest meaning of the term. I have shared in their ranks, teaching at a Church school, at the college level, in ministerial training programs and in ministry for many years. The work of being a pastor is teaching on many levels; much of the work is on a one-toone level and involves sharing between two persons with the hope that the seeker may bene t from a fellow searcher. One of my mentors, a college professor who entered the ministry later in life, shared some Greek etymology, Education, he said, comes from Greek, meaning “to bring out,” and has to do with being able to draw out of us what was already inside, making us realize what we knew all of the time. “Education” is putting it into words, asking the right questions, pointing out what was there, making us realize for ourselves ... and being that genius who can do it. Education in faith is nding what lls that God-sized hole in a heart and showing us who lls it. The rabbi is the one who did it. Those who bring out the best in us, who we really are, deserve our respect and honor. Their presence, dedication and love for their work is an honor that no title can bring.

Glades at a Glance 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County DemocratOKEECHOBEE--A man and woman were arrested by detectives with the Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force after they were reportedly found to be in possession of suspected methamphetamine. Thomas William McGill, 32, Sams Lane, LaBelle, and Elizabeth Danielle Skipper, 31, Ortona Locks Road, Moore Haven, were both arrested Friday, Aug. 16. McGill was charged with the felony of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Those same charges were led against Skipper, as well as an additional misdemeanor charge of resisting a law enforcement of cer without violence. Both were booked into the Okeechobee County Jail where McGill's bond was set at $21,000, and Skipper is being held on a bond of $21,500. McGill was later arrested on a felony charge of violation of probation and is being held without bond on that charge. According to arrest reports task force detectives were called to an Okeechobee residence by Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of ce (OCSO) deputies Corporal Chris Hans and Matt Crawford. The deputies were at the residence due to a disturbance involving an knife. The arrest report indicated that task force detectives were called because Deputy Crawford's OCSO K-9 Nero gave a positive alert to a pickup truck at the scene, in which both McGill and Skipper were passengers. Because of Nero's alert, Cpl. Hans looked inside the truck and found a purple Crown Royal cloth bag in the left-rear passenger seat. When he opened the cloth bag he found a substance that had been divided into small plastic bags. Cpl. Hans eld tested that substance and received a positive result for the presence of methamphetamine. The suspected meth was divided into the small plastic bags in order to be sold, stated a task force detective. The detective went on to state that the suspected meth weighed 10.4 grams. Meth, continued the detective, has a street value of about $100 per gram. Cpl. Hans also found a pipe -commonly referred to in street parlance as a tube' -inside the cloth bag that is used to smoke meth. With last week's arrest, McGill reportedly violated the terms of his probation in regard to cases in Glades and Hendry counties. A check of Department of Corrections (DOC) records showed he was found guilty on two counts of burglary and two counts of grand theft in Glades County. Then, on June 3, he was placed on 18 months probation. In Hendry County, McGill was found guilty on felony charges of sale of methamphetamine and traf cking in stolen property (two counts). On Nov. 19, 2012, he was placed on probation for a period of four years. Two charged with meth possession

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonCommon Grackles breed in most areas in North America east of the Rocky Mountains and south of the tundra. Of the three subspecies of this bird, the one known as the Florida Grackle (Q.q. guiscual) lives year-round from Southeastern North Carolina south through Florida. The existing subspecies of Common Grackle are distinguished by the color of their back, tail, belly and, to a lesser extent, their head. Florida Grackles appear to be black from a distance, but normally have a greenish-black back, blue-green tail, purple head and purpleblue belly. These large, lanky birds are smaller than Boat-tailed Grackles. Their head is at and they have a slightly downward-curved bill that is longer than those of most blackbirds. Males are slightly larger than females. Young birds are dark brown with a dark eye that turns bright gold when they become adults. The oldest recorded Common Grackle lived to be 22 years and 11 months old. Common Grackle fossils, which have been found from Florida to Ontario, have been dated to the Pleistocene Era 12,000 years ago. These noisy, gregarious birds communicate with body motions, as well as sounds. Males will make a threatening bill-up display, which consists of an upward movement of the head so the bill is almost vertical, or they will spread their tail feathers into a keeled "V" shape accompanied by exaggerated apping of the wings in response to another male. Common Grackles songs include a variety of squeaks, whistles and croaks. The typical song of males and females is a guttural "readle-eak," followed by high-pitched clear whistles. They make a short harsh "chaa" or "chitip" call when alarmed, taking ight or being approached by other grackles. Males' singing decreases through incubation, but they will make a short nasal call while perching in the nesting colony. These birds prefer habitats near fresh water in cypress swamps, pine forests, hammocks, orange groves and suburban areas. Large ocks are often seen foraging on lawns for seeds or in feedlots and on agricultural elds for grains such as corn or rice. They also eat invertebrates and mice, wade into water to catch small sh, rob eggs from birds' nests and eat adult birds. Migrating Common Grackles return to their nesting ground from mid-February through early March, with males arriving about a week before the females. In Florida, egg laying may begin as early as March or as late as July. Females usually choose the nest site and build the nest with occasional help from the male. The bulky nest is built in trees, cattails, bushes, broken stubs, old woodpecker holes and, occasionally, the underside of an active Osprey nest. It is located about two feet above ground or water and is made of course grasses, pine needles, roots, twigs, roots and mud. The female lays one to seven slightly glossy eggs, which she incubates for 10 to 14 days while the male remains closeby, guarding the nest from predators. Both parents feed the helpless young by forcing food into the hatching mouths. The young edge at 16 to 20 days of age.

Reservations are required for these escorted driving trips. Inland Birding Fun: Common Grackle PHOTO/ KENNETH COLE SCHNEIDERPictured above is the Common Grackle. The public has reported hundreds of sightings of Florida panthers to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) website. The website was launched a year ago and is a place for people to record when and where they saw a panther or its tracks. As of August 2013, the public had submitted 790 sightings to MyFWC.com/PantherSightings. Only 12 percent of the reports included a photograph and could be evaluated by Commission biologists. Of those with photos, the majority were con rmed as panthers. Other animals identi ed by FWC biologists were bobcats, foxes, coyotes, dogs, house cats and even a monkey. Most often, the reported animal or tracks belonged to a bobcat, not a panther. The veri ed panther reports were largely con ned to Southwest Florida, the well-documented breeding range for panthers in the state. There were also several veri ed sightings in South-Central Florida. "The public's willingness to share what they have seen or collected on game cameras is incredibly helpful and shows us where panthers presumably are roaming in Florida," said Darrell Land, who heads the FWC's panther team. "We thank everyone using the Report Florida Panther Sightings website and encourage others to participate in this citizen-science venture. "As the population of this endangered species grows, the FWC expects more Florida panthers to be seen in areas of the state where they have not lived for decades," Land said. "To properly plan and manage for the expansion of the panther's range in Florida, information about where the panthers are is vital." The FWC has a new "E-Z guide to identify panther tracks," available at www.FloridaPantherNet.org. The Florida panther population is estimated to be 100 to 160 adults and yearlings, a gure that does not include panther kittens. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild. Learn more about Florida panthers at www.FloridaPantherNet.org.

Across the country, parents are beginning to notice that today’s classroom looks quite different from the classroom they experienced in their own school days. From personalized learning technologies to new educational standards, teachers and administrators are using a variety of tools to ensure students are better prepared to succeed than ever before. In this era of innovation in education, this school year will be particularly exciting, in part because states will be piloting assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards, the new set of K-12 educational standards designed to improve students’ readiness for college and future careers. So just what do these changes mean for kids? Shift to New Standards Schools nationwide are nding new ways to provide individually tailored lesson plans while addressing the Common Core State Standards, often relying on a new generation of educational technologies that help students learn and succeed at their own pace. “Even before the advent of the Common Core, we knew that preparing students for the demands of college and careers required setting a solid foundation in skills such as reading comprehension and writing,” said Christine Willig, senior vice president of products at McGraw-Hill School Education. “When the new standards reiterated the importance of these skills, we saw an opportunity to build an entirely new program that would address the Common Core requirements, by leveraging contemporary cognitive science about how we learn, using cutting-edge digital tools.” Personalized Learning Education research has shown that instruction becomes more effective when tailored to students’ unique learning styles and needs. Personalized learning tends to lead to deeper learning -which will help students meet many of the new Common Core standards. As classrooms continue to get bigger, however, delivering that sort of individual attention to students becomes more dif cult. With this in mind, educational software have been built using entirely new educational technologies, offering interconnected platforms personalized for students and teachers and accessible across any device. Other digital learning tools use additional techniques to help students succeed, including using “adaptive” technology to continually assess students’ knowledge, skill and con dence levels, and to create a unique study path designed to help each student in the topics and concepts they need most -a level of personalization previously only available from a personal tutor. In this ever-evolving educational landscape, keeping up with the changes can seem daunting -but it needn’t be. Parents can rest assured that teachers are increasingly equipped with new technologies that ensure their students are getting the personalized attention they need to improve their chances for long-term success. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Best Vision Exam is the answer to your eye health and your wallet. Call us today for details on back to school specials 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades counties continue to raise awareness about Naegleria fowleri in light of the recent conrmed case. There is a standard process that the Department of Health follows for all diseases, regardless of the disease. That process involves interviewing the family to ask about possible exposure sources. The Department of Health is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC provided the testing that con rmed the case in Glades County. The exact water source of exposure cannot be exactly identi ed because the amoeba occurs naturally in warm freshwater sources such as rivers, lakes, ponds, canals and ditches. Because the amoeba is found in most freshwater sources, and because of the inconsistency in test results, the CDC does not recommend speci c testing of freshwater sources. For informational research, the CDC does collect information such as water temperatures, water depths, water clarity and air temperatures in the surrounding areas of where a case has been conrmed. The low number of infections makes it dif cult to know why a few people have been infected compared to the millions of other people that used the same or similar waters across the U.S. There were local news reports questioning exposure risks from water sprinklers. According to the CDC, there are no reports of infections from this route of exposure in the U.S. and it would be very unlikely that this activity could lead to infection. If the sprinklers are using canal water, there would be a slightly higher risk, but it would still be very unlikely to contract the disease, since people would not generally force that water up their nose. The organism is most commonly found in warm freshwater (lakes, rivers, ponds, canals and ditches). It should be removed in treated tap water that uses ltration and disinfection and would not be expected to be found in groundwater from private wells (the water is cooler than ideal for Naegleria growth and there would not be abundant bacteria for Naegleria to feed on). Ways to reduce your risk of infection: Limit the amount of water going up your nose. Hold your nose shut, use nose clips or keep your head above water when taking part in warm freshwater-related activities. Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels. Avoid digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas.

The land elevation there is about 11.8 feet above sea level. The second level 3 seepage is in Reach 3, an area between South Bay and Clewiston. Water is owing at about 0.5 gallons per minute through the dike in that area. The land elevation there is about 9.8 feet above sea level. The City of Moore Haven has an elevation of 13 feet above sea level. On the north side of the lake, the land elevations are higher. For example, the City of Okeechobee is about 26 feet above sea level. There are currently no Level 4 seepages. Level 4 means the water is eroding dirt from the berm. Should this happen, the Corps w ill use reinforcement such as concrete "rip rap" in those areas. Lt. Col. Greco said about half of the freshw ater entering the estuaries comes from the lake and about half comes from runoff along the waterways between the lake and the coast. On May 8, 2013, the Corps started discharges from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River at Moore Haven and into the St. Lucie Canal at Port Mayaca, to help slow the rise of Lake Okeechobee. Without those releases, the lake would be at more than 17 feet now, according to Lt. Col. Greco. Between May 8 and Aug. 13, 533,000 acre feet of water (about 173 billion gallons) went through the locks at Moore Haven, while 1,100,000 acre feet of water (356 billion gallons) went through the W. P. Franklin Lock near Fort Myers and into the estuaries on the west coast. On the other coast, during that time frame, 206,000 acre feet of water (about 67 billion gallons) from Lake Okeechobee went through the locks at Port Mayaca and 379,000 acre feet of water (about 123 billion gallons) went into east coast estuaries. Out ows to the south have been smaller because the water conservation areas south of Lake Okeechobee are already saturated. Pushing too much water south would ood the Everglades National Park and threaten wildlife there. This week the ows south from the lake were 920 cubic feet per second. There are three water conservation areas (WCA) between the lake and Everglades National Park. WCA1 is 220 square miles; WCA2 is 210 square miles; and, WCA3 is 915 square miles. As water evaporates and more storage is available, water from Lake Okeechobee is released south into the WCAs. A few days respite from the rain helped the level of Lake Okeechobee drop slightly below 16 feet last week. The big lake's 730square-mile surface allows up to one-half inch a day of water to evaporate on a hot, cloudless day. Sunny days also cause plants in the lake to absorb more water. The combination of evaporation and plant transpiration is referred to as evapotranspiration. On Aug. 14, the lake level was 15.99. On Aug. 15, the lake level was 15.97. According to USACE data, during that 24-hour period, 0.01 feet of lake water was added due to precipitation and 0.02 feet was lost to evaporation. The remaining difference in the lake level, 0.01 feet, is attributed to the releases of lake water to the east, west and south, being greater than the water entering the lake from waterways such as the Kissimmee River, Taylor Creek/Nubbin Slough and Fisheating Creek.

Over the years, these partnerships have made thousands of acre-feet of water retention and storage available throughout the greater Everglades system. With Lake Okeechobee’s water level continuing to rise from months of above-average rainfall during the 2013 rainy season, the district is utilizing this storage while taking further actions to capture and store water throughout the regional water management system. Holding water on these lands is one tool to help reduce the amount of water owing into Lake Okeechobee and/or discharged to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries during the current high water conditions throughout South Florida. To date, the district is storing water on 37 public and private land sites throughout the region. In addition to actively holding water at locations where Dispersed Water Management and regional projects are in place, district actions to increase temporary water storage throughout the region include:  Storing water on pre-construction project lands where possible. For example, water is being pumped onto 3,200 acres at the site of the Caloosahatchee River (C-43) West Basin Storage Reservoir, a future Everglades restoration project in Hendry County. This site has been used previously for storage under similar high-water conditions.  Utilizing a temporary pump on the District’s BOMA property to discharge additional water from the Caloosahatchee River to onsite storage areas. This pump enhances the capacity of existing pumps that were already being used at this Dispersed Water Management project.  Pursuing agreements with landowners to pump water from the local watershed onto their lands in exchange for reimbursement of fuel costs.  Contacting landowners and drainage districts in the Northern Everglades, including the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River basins, to see if they are able to temporarily retain/store water. While these landowners and drainage districts are cooperating whenever possible, viable opportunities are limited as most of the system is already saturated.  Encouraging farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area and local drainage districts south of Lake Okeechobee to voluntarily attempt to hold water back and store it when possible. SFWMD storing water on private & public lands Special to the Glades County Democrat/ SFWMDMore than 800 acre feet of water is being stored on the Caloosahatchee Water Quality Treatment and Testing Project Site (BOMA property) in Glades County. The project is a component of the state’s Northern Everglades Calooshatchee Watershed Project Plan. Special to the Glades County DemocratAt this time of year, there are two vehicles the average driver works around on the roadways: a school bus and a garbage truck. Both tend to slow traf c while they perform their necessary duties and both are at risk of accidents if drivers are distracted. Every year during “Back to School” season, Waste Management retrains and reminds employees that as professional drivers, the community they serve depends on them to help maintain a safe environment for students traveling to and from school. “As a company sharing the same roadw ays with our community, we believe it is our responsibility to promote safety not only to our drivers but our customers too,” said Teresa Chandler, Community Relations of W aste Management. “We would like to pass along the same driving tips to help promote a safe Back to School season.” School buses:  Remember that all 50 states have a law making it illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.  All 50 states require that traf c in both directions stop on undivided roadways w hen students are entering or exiting a school bus.  The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Stop your car far enough from the bus to allow children the necessary space to safely enter and exit the bus. Children:  Watch out for children and be prepared to stop. Although you may see them, they may not see you.  Cover your brake when you see children. They are easily distracted and may not stop to look for traf c before darting across the street.  Expect the unexpected. A child’s eld of vision is not fully developed so they may not be able to tell how close you really are to them.  Be ready to react whenever you see children near your vehicle. Children are not only small but they are fast too. They can move into harm’s way in mere seconds. It takes 2.2 seconds for the average adult to react to something not anticipated. Bicyclists:  Keep your eye out for bicyclists. There are more bikes on the roads of those children opting to ride to and from school in the early morning and afternoon hours. Teen Drivers:  Be alert around school parking lots. Teenage drivers are generally inexperienced and can often be distracted by friends, phones, music, and so on therefore increasing the potential for accidents.  All passengers should wear a seat belt and/or an ageand size-appropriate car safety seat or booster seat.  Do not text or talk on your cell phone while driving.  Slow down and obey all traf c laws and speed limits.  Be alert for school zones that have a reduced speed limit at designated times of the day.  Watch for school buses. Red ashing lights and an extended stop arm indicate the school bus is stopping to load or unload children. State law requires you to stop.  Keep an eye out for children walking in the street, especially where there are no sidewalks.  Be alert for children playing and gathering near bus stops and for those who may dart into the street without looking for trafc.  When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch for children walking or biking to school.  When driving in neighborhoods or school zones, watch for young people who may be in a hurry to get to or away from school and may not be thinking about getting there safely. Waste Management is dedicated to safety. Safety of employees, customers and their communities are always a top priority. Please drive carefully now that school is back in session and when you drive around garbage trucks, please give them extra consideration. Waste Management wants all of our employees to return home safely to their families every night. Stay schooled in road safety
