Fire leaves three seriously injured

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue investigators interviewed witnesses after a fire broke out in a building on South Main Street
in Belle Glade.


Family struggled to
exit burning
apartment
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
At a few minutes after 7 a.m.
on Tuesday, in one of the three


upper-level apartments above the
"Belle Glade Wholesale" building
on Main Street, tenants woke to
the sound of loud wailing com-
ing from another apartment, the
southernmost apartment with a
window facing the road.
It was a woman, their neigh-
bor, shouting "Help!" as loudly as
she could. Her four-year-old child


could be heard crying behind her,
and also the noise of their apart-
ment door jangling while the
woman's husband tried to open
the door.
In the few desperate moments
between the time their neighbor,
Lizbeth Hernandez, got up and
hurried down the stairs to flee
from the fire, she noticed that the


family just couldn't pry the door
open. They were stuck in there,
with the smoke from inside es-
caped through their door.
Ms. Hernandez said her brother
tried to open the door from the
outside, but the handle was too
hot.

Social economic's
part in teaching our
students
By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
What makes a student suc-
cessful?
Is it the quality of his teachers?
Or is it his home address?
With several C and D schools
in the Glades, some educators


and parents believe that the some-
times strenuous social economics
in the area limit its potential. Oth-
ers disagree. Does where a stu-
dent attend school equal a lower
or higher degree of education?
To Mr. Schmidt, a social stud-
ies teacher at Glades Day school,
it does.
"Lower social economics is a
major reason why some of the
schools are behind in the Glades.

Florida Library
Association asks
Floridians to voice
their support for
library funding
On March 10, appropriations
committees in the Florida House
and Senate adopted positions
eliminating all funding for Flori-
da's State Aid to Public Libraries
program. This devastating action


will result in some Florida library
branches closing and will serious-
ly cripple libraries' ability to serve
Floridians. Libraries have already
taken their share of local and state
budget cuts. This will be especial-
ly damaging to libraries in Flori-
da's rural communities, as these
libraries rely heavily on provisions
in the program that help commu-
nities with lower tax bases.
This action comes at a particu-
larly bad time for Floridians who

ing for critical community services for the
next 10 years. Participating in the Census
will also ensure that our community gets
their fair share of government funding and
determines how many congressional seats
we have in our state.
Here's some important facts:
Safe: The Census Bureau protects infor-
mation that identified respondents or their
households for 72 years.
Easy: The questionnaire contains only a
few simple questions and takes just a few
minutes to answer and return by mail.
Everyone counts: The census is a count of
everyone living in the United States, includ-
ing people of all ages, races ethnic groups,
both citizens and non-citizens.

As a parent, how to ensure our 'Teen Success'


By Pat Dobbins
The teen years often cause stress for
teens and parents. Parents can't understand
how their well behaved children morphed
into moody teenagers demanding a driver's
license. It's interesting to know that teen-
agers say that parents are the most impor-
tant influence when it comes to drugs and
alcohol. Try to connect with your teen and
build a trusting relationship with them. Help
your teen pursue their interests and develop
their abilities. Take a walk or go for a drive
with your teen. When there's not much eye
contact, they won't feel like they are under a
microscope.
Because a teen's brain isn't completely
mature, they have a terrible time with facial
expressions. (You may feel surprised, but
they may think you're angry.) Add that to a
teen's tendency to act on impulse, be over-
reactive and have limited emotional control,
and you've got a recipe for major communi-


M k \ r


cation problems.
Another fact: Your teen may act up around
you because there's hardly any risk in it. No
matter how horrible your teen may act, they
know that you won't ditch them (though
their friends probably would). Teens are
testing their limits with you because they
feel safe with you. Think of it as a compli-
ment.
According to the website www.drugfree.
org, it works like this: You listen without in-
terrupting (no matter what) and then sum
up what you heard for your teen to confirm.
In the end, you get clear information about
their problem and they feel understood.
Once your teen has had their
say, you might start with:
It seems like you're feeling...
I hear you say you're feeling...
I wonder if you're feeling...
Am I right that you're feeling...
Then describe the emotions you


saw:
It sounds to me like you're feeling hurt
and angry. Is that true?
I hear you saying that you're over-
whelmed. Am I right?
Or, use a figure of speech if that
works better:
It seems like you're at end of your rope.
Is that right?
Are you feeling like that situation is out
of control?
How can you get more involved in your
teen's life? Parental involvement leads to
higher achieving teenagers. Here are some
things that parents can do to develop teen
success.
Talk with your teen, try not to talk "at"
them.
Learn to "really listen" to your teen, and
try not to interrupt them.
Organize family activities and include
your teen in the planning


Encourage your teen to be involved in
community events
Attend and actively support your teen's
school activities
Attend parent-teacher meetings
Talk with your teen about school and
their activities on a regular basis
Help them with homework assign-
ments or offer to get them a tutor
Parental involvement is essential for teen
success. Never give up on your teen. Let
your teens see that you believe in them.
Have open and honest discussions with
your teen. Don't worry about who's right or
wrong listen carefully to your teen and
their responses will guide you and help you
to connect with them. Parents- when it
comes to your teens and alcohol, tobacco,
drugs, or any other harmful substance or
behavior-- be clear, be firm, be consistent-
Be the wall!

Lakeside Medical Center's Cardiac Rehab helps patients


Belle Glade, FL -At first glance, the Cardi-
ac Rehab facility at Lakeside Medical Center
looks like any other exercise facility. Weight
racks rest under a mirror on one wall, peo-
ple walk on treadmills and exchange small
talk, while others pedal dutifully on station-
ary bicycles. But this place is not designed
just for fitness.
"Many people think cardiac rehab is just
exercise, but it's so much more than that,"
said Karen Schutzer, RN, MS, Manager of
Cardiac Rehab and Wellness at Lakeside
Medical Center in Belle Glade.
Cardiac rehabilitation also known as
cardiac rehab -- is a comprehensive lifestyle
behavior approach to dealing with coronary
artery disease. Through a medically-super-
vised program of exercise, nutrition coun-
seling, and education, heart patients try to
stabilize, slow or even reverse the progres-
sion of cardiovascular disease. At Lakeside
Medical Center, Karen works with patients
who may have undergone a life-altering di-
agnosis or event, including bypass surgery,
stent placement, heart valve surgery, heart-
lung surgery, chronic angina, and heart at-
tack. Her job is to counsel and educate her
patients on specific actions they can take to


build stronger cardiovascular systems.
"I'm not afraid to be a little more aggres-
sive, if the situation allows," said Karen. "If
you walk three miles an hour today, then
let's see if we can move it up next time. I try
to move the patient as much as I can."
Karen also plays the role of trusted advi-
sor, as many patients feel a loss of control
after their procedure.
"I do a lot of teaching. I try to talk to them
after every session to encourage them about
the changes they need to make," said Karen.
"We are trying to rebuild their life, so they
have to try to stop smoking and lose weight.
It's a process, and it takes a while."
The typical cardiac rehab program takes
place in three phases. The first occurs just
after surgery, when hospital staff starts walk-
ing the patient. Teaching with both the pa-
tient and family starts in this phase.
The second phase is the outpatient work
after the procedure, to establish a docu-
mented program for recovery. This phase is
where Karen starts her work.
Phase three allows the patient more in-
dependence, but supervision is still neces-
sary. While Karen is able to work with her
patients one-on-one two days a week, she


encourages them to exercise on days they're
not with her.
"Some patients come in with bad atti-
tudes about exercise. But it should be fun,"
she said.
Karen begins each session by monitor-
ing blood pressure, heart rate and blood
sugar levels, which she reports back to the
patient's physician. Average blood pressure,
weight and change in personality over time
are all factors to consider in the patient's
progress. Exercise can even have an effect
on some medications patients may be tak-
ing.
"Sometimes, if they get into a new life-
style and stick with it, they are able to have
their doctor reduce their blood pressure
medications," she said.
Jane Thompson, a volunteer at Lakeside
Medical Center, started the Cardiac Rehab
program to address her high blood pressure
after retiring from her work as a school-
teacher. She knew she needed to exercise,
but needed help getting started. Karen
helped her learn to use the exercise equip-
ment and gave her tips on how to eat right.
The encouragement to focus on her overall
health has reaped benefits for Jane.


"I keep trying to push a little more, add a
little more, trying to build up from where I
started," said Jane.
The camaraderie that patients share in
the facility's group setting helps enhance
the recovery process. For patients without
family or supportive friends, isolation can be
devastating, especially as they grapple with a
serious diagnosis. While Karen can provide
medical information and tools for recovery,
the benefit gained from the encouragement
of others who may be walking through a
similar situation can't be measured.
Cardiac Rehabilitation, one of the hospi-
tal's outpatient services, empowers patients
to make much-needed lifestyle changes
that pave the way for healing and a heart-
healthy future. "The Cardiac Rehab facility is
one area where Lakeside Medical Center is
improving the health of our community in
a real and tangible way," said Brian P. Gib-
bons, Jr., Hospital Administrator. "With all
of her patients, Ms. Schutzer provides in-
spiration and the tools they need to achieve
happier, healthier lives."

Area scouts get their own 'Big Lake District'


Big Lake District will focus
on wildlife areas, rural
heritage and Lake
Okeechobee

By Nena Bolan
Special to The Sun
Boys in communities surrounding Lake
Okeechobee have an opportunity to be a
charter member of the newly created dis-
trict within the Gulf Stream Council of Boy
Scouts of America (BSA). The new chapter
is called Big Lake District, and Ray Worley
of Okeechobee is the chairman. Scouting
in south Florida has been emphasized in
densely populated areas; however, a mis-
sion goal of BSA focuses on conservation,
and one of the most eagerly earned badges
is for camping.
Lake Okeechobee communities are liv-
ing examples of kids who grew up in rural or
wilderness areas that have been preserved
for their wildlife and Old Florida scenery.
Many kids here already know how to camp,
fish and cook over a campfire. They can wel-
come their urban scout members to some
of the most undeveloped counties in south
Florida. Additionally, some local kids may
have taken their rural heritage for granted
and have never gotten around to learning
about camping and conservation.
According to Ray Worley, one obstacle
faced by local scout volunteers in past years
was fund raising. Funds that were collected
mostly benefited other populations because
there was no local district. This will no lon-
ger be a problem for leaders, donators and
volunteers who join the new Big Lake Dis-
trict.
Counties around Lake Okeechobee have
a lot to offer children who are scouts. Glades,
Hendry, Okeechobee and western Palm
Beach Counties have immediate access to
the section of Florida Scenic Trails called
LOST, or Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail.
The trail follows the Herbert Hoover levee,
which circumnavigates the entire lake. The
Okeechobee is a unique inland freshwater
sea, and the largest freshwater lake in the
southeastern United States.
Wildlife management areas, storm wa-


ter treatment areas, Florida Trail heads, a
freshwater coastline, Seminole communi-
ties, working cattle ranches, and archaeo-
logical sites are available for kids to explore
around the entire lake. Three major rivers
of south Florida can be explored here. The
giant Kissimmee River ends its journey into
the big lake, and the headwaters for the Ca-
loosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers are found
here, too.
"For us out here, in our new District,
we have taken for granted the things that
are important. Today we must refresh our
memories and dare to dream a better life
for all our kids. One that empowers our kids
to make a choice to take care of other kids,
our elderly and their environment. We must
look at our values as a product that we are
obligated to share with the coastal youth
confined by their environment, only getting
to see glimpses of what our rural region has
to offer on the news or at a rodeo. It is time
to teach being proud of our Rural Heritage. It
is grounds for quality and sustainable tourist
and economic regional development; one
that will have a long range rewarding im-
pact on our communities," said Mr. Worley.
There is local support among residents
for the Boy Scouts of America. In April 2009,
Troop 8463, Cape Coral, set out on a canoe
trip down the Caloosahatchee River. They
started at the Moore Haven Navigation Lock
and immediately had steering problems due
to strong winds. They were only able to pad-
dle a short distance and had to stop on the
bank of the river, and scramble up to a dock
belonging to Billie and Verda Proctor on
River Road. The Proctors invited 18 scouts

There's a wonderful world around us.
Full of fascinating places. Interesting
people. Amazing cultures. Important
challenges. But sadly, our kids are
not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that
half of America's youth cannot locate
India or Iraq on a map, then we have
to wonder what they do know about
their world. That's why we created

Gove Student Wellness Council receives grant


Funds aimed at helping
fight childhood obesity

UnitedHealth Group has awarded the
Gove Elementary Student Wellness Council
a $500 grant to implement a program aimed
at fighting childhood obesity in its commu-
nity. This is their second year to win this
grant for wellness initiatives for their school
and community.
The grant is part of the UnitedHealth HE-
ROES program, a service-learning, health lit-
eracy initiative designed to encourage young
people, working through educators and
youth leaders, to create and implement lo-
cal hands-on programs to address the issue
of childhood obesity. Grants were awarded
to schools and youth-focused, community
center-based programs that have demon-
strated a clear understanding of the health
risks associated with pediatric obesity; pro-
posed creative solutions to fighting obesity
in their neighborhoods and communities;
and can be easily implemented, scaled and
measured.
The Gove Wellness Student Council, sup-
ported by Wellness Team and Parent Teach-
ers Organization of Gove Elementary, will fo-
cus on increased family activities, awareness
of health and wellness partnerships and
fitness-directed character programs. Their
main partner in wellness, Lakeside Medical
Center's Terri Calsetta has been instrumen-
tal in the many Glades Wellness Challenges
which have elevated their success for well-
ness for their community. Among the events
the council will develop, sponsor and pro-
mote: MLK essay contest on Why Positive
Character is important to our Community,
Community Career Spirit Week and projects
centering on promoting and respecting the
environment and wellness. Gove Elemen-
tary Wellness and Brain gym Teacher would
like to thank all their Glades wellness part-
ners for their support for the last nine years
of wellness projects.
UnitedHealth Group collaborated with
Youth Service America (YSA) to develop the


UnitedHealth HEROES program. To date,
UnitedHealth Group and YSA have awarded
more than $250,000 in grants. A list of all the
2009-2010 grant winners will be available
online at www.ysa.org.
"With UnitedHealth HEROES, we are
helping young people take action to improve
their overall health and quality of life in a way
that's not only educational, but beneficial for
their communities. As people become more
aware of health issues through health liter-
acy and advocacy initiatives they will make
positive changes to live better lives," said
Dan Rosenthal, CEO for UnitedHealthcare of
South Florida.
"We believe these grants will empower
teams of students to collaborate with teach-
ers and community leaders to develop their
own awareness programs that will make
their schools and neighborhoods healthier.
In reviewing the grant applications, we were
inspired by the creative ideas young people
came up with to help fight obesity and en-
courage healthier living," said Rosenthal
"The UnitedHealth HEROES grants are part
of UnitedHealth Group's overall commit-
ment to help stem the rising tide of obesity,
and related chronic health conditions like
diabetes."
The HEROES service-learning projects
are implemented during the spring semes-
ter and will culminate on YSA's 21st Annual
Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), April 23-
25, 2010. GYSD provides an opportunity for
students to include their projects in a larger,
global youth service movement that seeks
to improve communities in all 50 states and
more than 100 countries.
More information about the UnitedHealth
HEROES program and service-learning is
available at www.ysa.org.
Obesity is a critical problem in America's
classrooms. According to 2008 data from
the Centers for Disease Control, one in three
children is obese or overweight, putting
them on the road to lifelong chronic condi-
tions like diabetes and heart disease. In Ala-
bama, 36.1 percent of children ages 10-17
are considered obese or overweight.


Also, according to the 2009 America's
Health Rankings, if left unchecked or un-
treated, obesity will affect 43 percent of
adults by 2018 and will add nearly $344
billion in that year alone to the nation's an-
nual direct health care costs, accounting for
more than 21 percent of health care spend-
ing. America's Health Rankings is an annual
comprehensive assessment of the nation's
health on a state-by-state analysis. It is pub-
lished jointly by United Health Foundation,
the American Public Health Association and
Partnership for Prevention.
About Youth Service America
Youth Service America seeks to improve com-
munities by increasing the number and diversity
of young people, ages 5-25, serving in important
roles. Founded in 1986, YSA is an international
nonprofit resource center that partners with
thousands of organizations in more than 100
countries to expand the impact of the youth
service movement with families, communities,
schools, corporations and governments. For

Education
Continued From Page 1

Look anywhere in America, a lower income
area equals a lower degree of education and
a lack of classroom technology."
While that may be true for some, Mrs.
Green, principal of Pahokee Elementary
paints a different picture.
"Social economics have no bearing at all
when it comes to education. It is the people
within the schools and the relationships be-
tween teachers and students that count."
Her confidence is not ill-placed.
Pahokee Elementary received an A rating
last year from its previous D rating.
She thanks a concentrated push for
more reading in the classroom as the direct
cause.
K.E. Cunningham/Canal Point Elemen-
tary is another school that claims the same
benefits from reading. Their B rating for two
years in a row is because of that, administra-
tors said.
"Our methodology at Canal Point Ele-
mentary is to embrace reading. We started
Reading Readers Workshop. Its main objec-
tive is putting books in the classroom and
motivating children to read," Lavoise Smith,
Canal Point principal, said.
Creating an environment of excellence is
one way Mrs. Smith allows students of low
income background to gain exposure, she
said.



Aid
Continued From Page 1

are turning to their public libraries for help
during these challenging times:
Job seekers turn to libraries to learn
about and apply for jobs.
Floridians needing to apply for critical
E-Government services and benefits are get-
ting help from library staff, computers, and
Internet service.
Florida families are relying on library
books, cd's, and dvd's to stretch household
budgets.
Families continue to rely on libraries to
help children learn to read and help parents
and caregivers learn to be children's first
teachers.
The library community knows that the
state budget is seriously challenged, but li-
brary funding has already been cut by over
a third, from $33.4 million in 2001 to $21.2
million today. Local library funding has been
deeply cut in the last 3 years and more re-
ductions are coming in 2020-11. Many librar-
ies are reporting cuts exceeding 30 percent.
If state funding is reduced below the current
level critically needed federal funds will also
be lost.
Library funding was saved last session
when the program was threatened at the
last minute and Florida residents rose up and
legislators restored the funding. The Florida
Library Association (FLA) is calling on Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist and legislative leaders
to find a way to fund this critical program,
which has helped support public library ser-
vice to Floridians since 1962.


"We can overcome the reality of residing
in a low income area through federal funds,"
Ms. Smith said. "This allows us to do more
for our students."
Mrs. Maria, an English teacher at Glades
Day, partially agrees with Mrs. Green and Mr.
Schmidt.
"There are teachers in the education sys-
tem who truly care about giving their stu-
dents the best education possible but lower
social economics do play a role in educa-
tion."
Mrs. Maria has two children who attend
public school in Loxahatchee.
"I feel like my children are getting a good
education but not a great education," she
said. 'Although they attend a school where
the income is in the mid-range, they do not
have the academics and extracurricular ac-
tivities like schools on the coast offer."
On that same note, Mrs. Maria also felt
that her children will have a disadvantage
when it comes to college.
With college becoming more competi-
tive each year, students have to make sure
they crossed every "t" and dotted every "i."
Mrs. Maria stated, "In education, I feel my
children can compete on the college playing
field, but with extracurricular they cannot."
Her feelings are not alone.
Students across America are doing ev-
erything in their power to give their applica-
tion an extra pop. Mrs. Maria advises, "The
key is to get your kids involved in extracur-
ricular activities early. My children are very
involved, but for the children who are not


active within their community there will be
a lack."
The question now is how are schools in
the Glades compensating for this deficien-
cy?
Schools in the Glades area are filling the
curriculum void by pushing dual enrollment
classes at Palm Beach Community College,
and other classes such as AP and IB classes.
These opportunities allow students to
even out the playing field when it comes to
college and scholarships. More often than
not, these programs are free to high school
students in public schools. Check and speak
with your or your child's school guidance
counselor for more information.
Volunteerism is another outlet that helps
the Glades' students stand out. Mrs. Green,
principal of Pahokee Elementary, explains
"Resources are not plentiful in lower income
schools, but this allows us to think outside
of the box."
Countless clubs at local schools offer
many opportunities for their students to get
involve with volunteer work. Lighthouse
caf6, First Baptist's food pantry, Boys and
Girls Club are just a few more organizations
that are looking for committed volunteers.
"We have a small community feel. You
can't always find that everywhere. Students
need to begin using that as their advantage
and stop looking at it as a disadvantage"
Mrs. Green mentioned. "Yes, resources are
important for our children but how you uti-
lize those resources is what counts, not the
income level of the area."


Notice is hereby given that a public hearing
will be held by the Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners on March 30, 2010,

Fire
Continued From Page 1

"I grabbed my niece and ran down-
stairs," said Antonio Hernandez, Lizbeth's
brother, who woke up coughing from the
creeping smoke entering his sister's apart-
ment. "I heard the lady screaming for help,
but I couldn't see in front of me because of
the smoke."
Ernesto Gonzalez, another tenant said
that "everybody else got out (but the fam-
ily). They got stuck inside. Maybe they were
too shocked."
Luis Tress, who takes care of maintenance
issues at the building, saw smoke coming
out of one of the apartment windows while
he drove across the street. When he entered
the apartments, he said he pushed on the
door and by this time it had been opened,
but the family was nowhere to be seen.
"I think he went back to rescue his fam-
ily," Mr. Tress, who made the initial call to
fire rescue, said in Spanish.
Minutes later fire rescue personnel


rushed to the scene and pulled the three
from the burning apartment and eventually
controlled the fire.
The victims, suffering from smoke and
burn injuries, were transported to hospitals,
the small child taken to St. Mary's Hospital,
and the parents to Delray Medical Center, in
West Palm Beach.
The man was later transferred to Jack-
son Memorial Burn Center in Miami, along
with the four-year-old boy. The female adult
remained at Delray Hospital as of Tuesday
night, according to Captain Don Delucia,
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue public in-
formation officer.
"After going to the Jackson Burn Center,
(it seems) the two suffered pretty extensive
injuries, and are in very serious condition
compared to the one in Delray," the captain
said.
Ms. Hernandez said the family of four
lives in the apartment, husband and wife,
and two children -- one of whom was in
school at the time of the fire.
Carl Courson is the owner of the build-
ing. According to him, the man has lived in


the apartment for many years now, having
rented the room even before Mr. Courson
purchased the property in 1994. He lived
with his mother, and then started a family.
According to Mr. Courson, the man's mother
died recently.
Ms. Hernandez believed it was a memo-
rial to the mother, a shrine with candles lit in
her honor, that started the fire.
Officials were unwilling to speculate ear-
ly on, while they scoured the scene for clues
and interviewed witnesses. Later in the day,
however, Captain Delucia reported that in-
vestigators determined it likely was a candle
that started the fire.
Hours after the fire, one of the public
signs that the fire had occurred was the
smoked-black exterior frame of a window
on that southernmost apartment unit.
