South Bay dance group reaches out to kids


How one Glades
based group is
dancing to a different
beat

By Ashley Causey
Dolly Hand was packed with
an eager audience on May 7, all
waiting to see the talented troupe
called Street Beat
With 12 showcases already
under their belt, none of them


seemed nervous as the red cur-
tains on stage slowly wheeled
away.
Lights and the cheering of the
crowd ensued in anticipation of
the show ahead.
The high energy gospel mu-
sic blared throughout Dolly Hand
Theater.
The crowd was pumped while
Street Beat's Destiny, Vision, Unity,
Purpose and SBI groups made the
audience dance in their seat.
This was the culmination of a
dream shared by two people who


wanted more for the Glades.
Kenneth Jackson, one of the
founders of Street Beat, shared
how the troupe first began.
"Street Beat was established
when my wife and I prayed and
began to ask God for a solution
for some of the problems we ob-
served while watching the majority
of children and teens who lacked
internal motivation," he said. "Our
primary goal was to reach chil-
dren early on to give them a vision
that would encourage and prepare
them for a lifetime of success as a


result of early successes."
Brieanna Hurbs, who has been
active within Street Beat for seven
years, shared the impact that Street
Beat has had in her life.
"Street Beat has gotten me to
listen to a greater variety of gospel
music. I also think more about the
choices I make," she said.
Matletha Fuller, a senior at
Glades Central who has been
involved with Street Beat for 13
years, shared the same life chang-

FWC arrests 3

Day after day, officers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) use their extensive knowledge of the
woods and water to track down individuals
who are suspected of abusing our state's
precious fish and wildlife resources. That's
just what happened Thursday night, on a
dark country road in Hendry County.
Knowing that high water forces deer out
of the swamps and up near roads to feed,
officers conducted surveillance on County
Road 832 near Okaloacoochee Slough Wild-
life Management Area when they noticed a
van turning around several times and shin-
ing lights in the woods. Officers stopped the
van and questioned the subjects. Inside the
van, the officers found four deer that had
been shot.
Officers charged three Miami-Dade coun-
ty men Lazaro Lopez, age 48, of Hialeah,
Andres Mena Jr., age 25, of Miami and An-
dres Mena Sr., age 44, of Miami with four
counts each of illegally taking deer at night
with a gun and a light during the closed sea-
son and four counts each of hunting from
a county-maintained road. The men were
booked into the Hendry County Jail on the
misdemeanor charges.
"As this case shows, suspected poachers
will travel long distances to kill deer," said
FWC Capt. Jeff Ardelean. "FWC officers are
dedicated to protecting our fish and wildlife
resources, particularly when they are most
vulnerable."

Do your job
Tragically, a few days ago, a hard work-
ing man was murdered by a PUNK. Some-


how, the ability to stand around on street
corners and think up ways to rob some
business or someone is the one of the main
goals of some of our esteemed citizens. My
main question is, "Where was the Sheriff's
Department when this was happening?" I
see them parked all over town, sometimes
two or three at a time in one place. South of
Belle Glade Elementary, in the park between
Fifth and Sixth Street (protecting the middle
schoolers), behind Dolly Hand Center and
other parts of town. If you are going to
park and do your reports or just BS, park at
these places of business. Latin Grocery was
robbed, and the owner hit in the head, at 1


p.m. in the afternoon! The Sheriff's Depart-
ment had ten cruisers after the robbery for
over three hours at the store. Is part of your
job to Protect and Serve? There has been
some question about payment of the Sher-
iff's Department by the city of Belle Glade.
DO YOUR JOB and we will be glad to pay
you. I don't know how many people I have
talked with that now have a gun because the
criminals are running wild in the Glades. Get
a plan to protect our streets and businesses
when owners go to the bank for money to
cash checks, or are in "high-crime" areas. If
you are going to park, park in these business
areas. You just might stop some crime.

munity agencies that are willing to share the
costs. The government will pay 50 percent
of the cost for an employee with the "host


agency" paying the other 50 percent. This is
an excellent opportunity to obtain additional
staff process benefit applications, while serv-
ing those in need who come to your agency
for help. To be a past of this expansion op-

Communities can make a difference in HIV fight


By Pat Dobbins
Community teamwork is essential to suc-
cess and that was the focus of a meeting
held on Saturday, May 1 at Flora and Ella's
restaurant.
Four sororities and fraternities were rep-
resented at the meeting as well as leadership
from the Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments and Lee Memorial Health Sys-


terns.
This network of partners met to discuss
the Man-Up mobilization activity and facilita-
tion of response focusing the prevention and
treatment of HIV/AIDS.
A total of 10 people from the counties of
Hendry, Glades, Collier and Lee attended
this very important meeting which has all
ready shown great progress.
Resources were identified for HIV preven-


tion and treatment, and non-governmental
agencies will lobby for funding for the treat-
ment and prevention of HIV/AIDS in Hendry,
Glades, Collier and Lee Counties.
Robert Bobo, Program Manager HIV/
AIDS/STD, Department of Health, Hendry
County was the facilitator of the meeting
and was very impressed at the networking
efforts of the group.
Additional meetings are being developed


and will be held in Hendry County, as well
as Lee and Collier Counties, and will include
faith-based organizations, community-
based organizations, and marketing/entre-
preneurs.
Education is a key component to fighting
this preventable disease.

Flood insurance critical to housing market recovery


By Rep. Tom Rooney
Last month, many Floridians looking to
buy homes ran into an unexpected obstacle
- an inability to purchase flood insurance,
which is required at most closings in our
state. As a result, home closings ground to a
halt, leaving sellers scrambling and buyers at
risk of losing out on the first-time homebuy-
ers' tax credit that expired on April 30.
Buyers could not purchase new flood
insurance policies because Congress failed
to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance
Program before it expired on March 28. A
temporary extension of NFIP was held hos-
tage to unrelated partisan gridlock because
it was included in a larger bill filled with
controversial items that Congress did not
approve before adjourning for the Easter
district work period. Without an extension,
NFIP, which is run by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, could not issue or re-


new policies.
Flooding is America's most common and
most damaging natural disaster, affecting
homes in all 50 states. However, most pri-
vate insurance companies do not offer their
own flood insurance coverage, and standard
homeowners' insurance does not cover
flooding. Congress recognized this prob-
lem and established NFIP in 1968 so that
homeowners and buyers could purchase
flood insurance for their homes. Federal law
requires homes and buildings in high-risk
flood areas to have flood policies in order
to receive approval for federally regulated or
insured mortgages.
Around 90 percent of all flood insurance
policies originate with NFIP, with Floridians
holding nearly 40% of all policies. Therefore,
Florida suffers disproportionately when the
program lapses and cannot issue new poli-
cies.
Congress finally approved a short-term


NFIP extension on April 15 that included a
retroactive fix for homeowners whose poli-
cies lapsed after March 28. However, this
"fix" was not of much help to those who
were waiting to close on properties, or who
saw their mortgage applications rejected
because they could not purchase flood in-
surance. The NFIP delay was an unfortunate
and unnecessary setback on the path to
homeownership for many Floridians, and it
may have cost some of them the chance to
take advantage of the first-time homebuyer
tax credit before it expired. The delay also
hurt sellers, many of whom had waited
years to find a buyer only to see sales fall
through.
To prevent delays from occurring again -
the program has lapsed twice since February
- Congress needs to pass a long-term NFIP
reauthorization. Unfortunately, since the pro-
gram expired in September 2008, Congress
has merely passed one short-term extension


after another. Homebuyers, sellers, realtors,
insurers and lenders need the stability and
predictability of a true long-term reauthori-
zation of the program. If homebuyers can-
not know whether the flood insurance they
need to apply for their mortgages will be
available when they need it, our struggling
housing market cannot recover.
I am working with fellow members of
Florida's Congressional delegation, on a
bipartisan basis, to complete a long-term
reauthorization of the National Flood Insur-
ance Program. A long-term reauthorization
will bring much-needed stability to the hous-
ing market, put more Floridians on the path
to home ownership, and help ensure that
when a flood strikes, families have the cov-
erage they need.
Rooney represents Florida's 16th district
in the U.S. House of Representatives.

OPEN THE DOOR TO A CENSUS TAKER,

AND YOU OPEN DOORS FOR FEDERAL FUNDING FOR

More community services, senior programs, hospitals, schools, libraries and roads...
Census data also helps determine federal, state and local government representation.
If you did not send back your census form, you will receive a visit from a census taker. If a census taker visits you, here's what
you should do:
First, ask to see an ID. All census workers carry official government badges marked with just their name; they may also
have a "U.S. Census Bureau" bag. A census taker will never ask to enter your home.
Answer the census form questions for your entire household (you must be at least 15 years old to answer questions) so that
the census taker can record the results for submission to the Census Bureau.
Census takers may, visit local homes several times to obtain resident information. Should a census taker come when you are
away from your home, he/she will leave a contact number. If you prefer, you can schedule a visit with your census taker. If a
census taker has not visited your home or you have a question about your participation with the census, call 1-866-872-6868.

SFWMD Introduces Florida Water Star to South Florida


Program recognizes new
and existing homes for
water-saving measures

As part of its ongoing efforts to encour-
age efficient water use, the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) has
introduced the Florida Water Star building
certification program to South Florida.
Created by the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District and now being implement-
ed in both South and Southwest Florida,
Florida Water Star is a points-based recog-
nition program that encourages water effi-
ciency in household appliances, plumbing
fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes.
The SFWMD is piloting the program in
counties along its northern boundary, which
border its Florida Water Star partners.
"Florida Water Star shows how we are
working with our fellow water management
districts to bring the best water conservation
ideas and proven programs to all Floridians,"
said SFWMD Governing Board Vice Chair-
man Jerry Montgomery. "Creative thinking
and cooperative spirit generates innovative
solutions for water conservation and helps
us protect our state's limited water resourc-
es for the long term."
Conservation-minded developers, build-
ers and homeowners who sign up for the
program agree to meet water-efficiency cri-
teria that address landscaping, irrigation and
indoor features.
After upgrades have been installed, a SF-
WMD-trained certifier verifies that the build-
ing meets all the necessary prerequisites and
has achieved enough points in each of the
three categories to qualify for Florida Water
Star certification.
The number of points necessary for cer-
tification varies by tier. The Gold and Silver
criteria detail water-efficient options for new
single-family residential construction, with

the Gold tier conserving more water.
Developed in late 2009 by the South
Florida and St. Johns River water manage-
ment districts in conjunction with water
conservation professionals, the Bronze tier
recognizes owners of existing homes for
taking water-saving steps, such as installing
high-efficiency toilets and planting Florida-
friendly vegetation.
"Development of the Bronze tier opens an
already successful program to a new group
of homeowners interested in conserving
water while reducing their utility bills," said
SFWMD Executive Director Carol Ann We-
hile. "The entire Florida Water Star program
will play a vital role in fostering a lasting wa-
ter conservation ethic in South Florida."
Florida Water Star can be effectively in-
tegrated into building projects along with
other programs, such as the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR,
the Florida Green Building Coalition's green
standards and the U.S. Green Building Coun-
cil's LEED program.
While many of these programs provide
general guidelines for water efficiency, Flori-


da Water Star specifically addresses uses rel-
evant to Florida, further enhancing effective-
ness of the other programs.
As part of the program, SFWMD water
conservation officers are training Florida
Water Star certifiers for all three residential
tiers.
The first Florida Water Star Residential
Certifier Training in South Florida was held
in October 2009 in West Palm Beach, and
16 of the trainees from that workshop sub-
sequently passed a three-hour exam on their
way to becoming official certifiers.
Another free two-day training workshop
is scheduled for June 10 and 11 at the SF-
WMD St. Cloud Field Office.
Attendees should be familiar with other
green building programs or have basic
knowledge of irrigation systems, landscape
design and/or indoor water use.
Introduction of Florida Water Star to South
Florida is a component of the SFWMD Com-
prehensive Water Conservation Program,
which encourages more responsible use of
water resources throughout the region. Nu-
merous stakeholders worked with the SFW-


MD to define specific regulatory, voluntary
and incentive-based programs and in-depth
education and marketing plans that will help
foster a year-round conservation ethic.
For details on the Comprehensive Water
Conservation Program and water-saving
tips, please visit www.savewaterfl.com.
More information on Florida Water Star
is available at www.floridawaterstar.com.
Anyone interested in registering for the up-
coming certifier training workshop should
contact Jesus Rodriguez, SFWMD lead wa-
ter conservation officer, at jerodrig@sfwmd.
gov or 561-682-6060.

Pioneer Park kids at the ballfield


Students from the first grade classes at
Pioneer Park went to the ball game. On
April 29, 2010 they attended the Education
Day at Roger Dean Stadium. They watched a
Minor League Baseball game. This field trip
presented an educational day involving the
fundamentals of mathematics, science, lan-
guage arts, and social studies while using the


setting of a baseball game as a backdrop.
The students enjoyed a lunch and ball
game while there. As an extra treat the stu-
dents were chosen to stand on the dugout
and sing the "Take Me out to the Ball Game"
song.
This was truly a day that the students of
Pioneer Park will remember!


School briefs


Gove Elementary School
Future Star
Congratulations to Lauren Bush, 5th
grader from Mrs. Schmidt's homeroom, for
being accepted into BAK Middle School of
the Arts in the area of dance for the upcom-
ing school year. Lauren has been dancing
since she was four years old. She decided to
audition for a change to attend BAK MSOA
next year to continue her journey in dance.
Lauren auditioned in January and received
her letter of acceptance a couple of weeks
ago. When asked how she felt when she re-
ceived the letter Lauren said, "I felt excited
and nervous because it's a huge challenge."
It is a huge challenge for her, but an amaz-
ing opportunity to continue her growth in
dance. Out of about 200 students that audi-
tioned, 60 were selected, that is something
to be extremely proud of. Her school, teach-
ers, and classmates are all very proud of
her and we would like to extend our best
wishes to her as she continues her journey
at becoming a very talented dancer! Again,
congratulations!

"Our calling is to be about the business of casting the net, fishing for people,
drawing others into this fellowship of Jesus Christ." Pastor Hicks.


Let's Go Fishing!
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Imagine a company whose president
decides to travel abroad. He is going to be
away an extended period of time.
So he says to his trusted employees,
"Look, I'm going away. And while I'm away,
I want you to pay close attention to the busi-
ness. You manage things while I'm away. I
will write you regularly. When I do, I'll tell
you what you should do until I return."
Everyone agrees. The president leaves for
a couple of years, but he writes often with
instructions for how his business should
be conducted. Finally he returns. As he ap-
proaches the front door of the company he
immediately notices the flower beds are
full of weeds, one of the windows across
the front of the building is boarded up, and
the receptionist at the front desk is sound
asleep.
When the president reviews the com-
pany's bottom line things are even worse.
The business has suffered huge losses. He
asks his employees, "What in the world is
going on?"
"What do you mean?" they ask.
"Well, look at this place! Didn't you get
any of my letters?"
"Letters? Oh, yeah sure, we got every one
of them," one of the employees replies. "As
a matter of fact, we have had letter study ev-
ery Friday night since you left. We have even
divided all the personnel into small groups
and discussed many of the things you wrote.
Some of those things were really interesting.
You'll be pleased to know that a few of us
have actually committed to memory some
of your sentences and paragraphs. One or
two memorized an entire letter or two! Great
stuff in those letters!"
"Okay, okay you got my letters," says the
exasperated president, "you studied them
and meditated on them, discussed and
even memorized them. But what did you do
about them?"
Silence, then a slow response: "Do? Uh -
we didn't do anything about them."
Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I will make
you become fishers of men."
Followers of Christ have been fishing for
people ever since. Or have we? Is a person a
fisherman if year after year he or she never
catches a fish? Studying and talking about
fishing is important, but fishing is the pur-
pose. Our calling is to be about the business


of casting the net, fishing for people, drawing
others into this fellowship of Jesus Christ.
We're not called to simply be students
and supporters of Jesus, but participants in
His vision for the world.
We can read all about it and talk about it
all we want to, but the truth of the matter is,
we will never be a fisherman until we start
fishing. We've become good at studying and
talking about fishing, now let's go fishing!

Ascension Day
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
May 13 is celebrated as Ascension Day on
many church calendars. The Lord was re-
ported to have appeared after His resurrec-
tion "over a period of forty days (Acts 1:3)
and then was "taken up before their very
eyes (v. 9)."
The Lord had spent enough time with
those who were to follow; the disciples (fol-
lowers, students, learners) were to become
apostles (those who are sent), and lay the
foundations that would change the world.
What was given to us during those earthly
years was enough for us to find our destiny
and salvation. I was blessed to have grand-
parents around as I was growing during my
earlier years.
One of them used to read me Bible sto-
ries, tell me right from wrong, correct with
gentleness but firmness, tell me when it was
a good time to get out of sight. We'd play
checkers and she'd take me along to the de-
partment stores when she went shopping.
During those years there were tea rooms
in the better-known stores; we'd share des-
sert when the shopping was over. She "as-
cended" into Heaven when I was nine years
old; a tragic loss but in my life long enough
to have a profound influence.
I have reflected that she was here suf-
ficiently to guide me on the paths where I
have found myself; it was enough.
In God's plan, time is different than it is
for us. Psalm 90 reminds us "For a thousand
years in your sight are like a day that has just
gone by... (v. 4)" and that the "length of our
days quickly pass, and we fly away (v. 10)"
- so we "might number our days aright, that
we may gain a heart of wisdom (v 12)."
The lesson is that we are given enough
by God; and it is up to us to apply it. I believe
that it is in this way that we "ascend" with
those who have set us on a right path; and


we honor them by building on their good
works. We become what God intends by
those who make us our best; more than we
might have otherwise become.
Likewise, we "ascend by helping those
entrusted to our care; who call upon us at
difficult times and helping them I- ..I
beyond what otherwise might have been
a lesser life. We ascend together; teaching,
supporting, loving, caring, showing others
our blessings and making them available to
those we touch and who touch us.
We live in a troubled world. Every place
one can turn, you will find all sorts of prob-
lems, difficulties, troubles, depravity, sick-
ness, sin. Then, there comes a moment
when it is possible to do something to make
a difference in somebody's life. Do I buy into
the tragedy and difficulty; or do I make a dif-
ference?
I cannot do everything but I can do some-
thing. That's how I ascend, how I follow the
Lord. With Him, I know that in His time, it
will be enough.

Parenting
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Throughout the Bible the acceptance
or rejection of godly parental instruction is
treated as a matter of life and death for the
children (Exodus 20:12; Dueteronomy 5:16;
Ephesians 6:1-3). In the biblical model of
parenting, the parents stand under God's
authority and serve as His stewards in pass-
ing on His truth to their children. The Story
of Hanna ( I Samuel 1:1) illustrates this dra-
matically.
Hannah could not have children for many
years, until the Lord answered her prayers
and gave her a son, Samuel. As a demonstra-
tion of her trust in the Lord and her thank-
fulness for His provision, Hannah entrusted
Samuel, when he was "old enough to eat,"
into the hands of the high priest Eli to as-
sist the priests in their service to the Lord (I
Samuel 1:24). Hannah understood that her
son belonged to the Lord from birth.
Generally, it is not good or necessary for
today's parents to surrender their children
wholesale into someone else's care as an act
of commitment to the Lord. It is good for to-
day's parents to recognize that their children
belong to God. As such, while their children
are young and extremely dependent, parents
are responsible to teach them how to trust
in God. As children age, parents must begin
to step out of the way of the Divine Parent.
The role of their restrictions, protection, and
affections in the child's life must diminish.
As the children mature through their teen
years to become fully independent and re-
sponsible adults, the parental role becomes
one of guidance and friendship.
Scripture also portrays parenting as
an activity with a goal. That goal is to cre-
ate and maintain an environment in which
God is the center of all thought and activi-
ties (Dueteronomy 6:4-25). In other words,
God is present (Acts 17:28) and demands to
receive glory (I Corinthians 10:31) in every
area of the child's life. Parents must work to
put God's truth into every sphere of daily life
in order to help their children develop a way
of thinking and life that constantly pleases
God.

ing experience.
"Street Beat has improved my perfor-
mance arts skills immensely," she said. "The
motivation I gain from dance and gospel
music has led me to apply those attributes
to my daily life."
Street Beat's main program is the after
school arts program located in South Bay,
which serves children ages 5 to 12, five days
a week from 2 p.m. to 5:30pm.
Street Beat serves 100 children during the

is very high, averaging more than 26 passen-
gers per hour. Palm Tran has experienced a
37 percent increase in ridership in the past
year.
"Mobility is vital to our quality of life," the
mayor said.
Palm Tran operates three different fixed
routes in the Glades area. Per year ridership
in the Glades averages 500,000.
Initially, eight buses will be stationed at
the new facility for daily operations and Palm
Tran's 10 bus contingency fleet will be stored
at the satellite facility for emergencies.

er for 16 years now, he seems quite happy.
"It is a great experience and it's a nice place
to work," he smiles. "Otherwise, I wouldn't
be working here for sixteen years, right?"
One woman, who chooses to not iden-
tify herself, prefers taking the bus rather than
driving. She takes the bus three to four days
per week to her workplace in West Palm
Beach, and she enjoys the service. "It's con-
venient and super accessible," she prom-
ises. Palm Tran Transportation's reliability
and convenience are two of the qualities
that make people want to use their servic-
es. Running seven days a week and serving
more than 3,400 bus stops with 142 buses
around Palm Beach County, this service is
definitely busy.
From 1925 to 1950 the founders of the
Miami Transit Company came to West
Palm Beach to establish the Florida Cities
Bus Company that would meet the needs
of South Floridians. It was then sold and
renamed the Transit Company of the Palm
Beaches. However, in 1971 the company
was losing money and had to shut down.
After 40 days without service, Palm Beach
County created a new, publicly owned oper-
ation called Florida Transit Management Inc.
and restored service to the county residents
on August 2, 1971. In the 1980's, the Florida
Transit Management Inc. was overhauled
and renamed Co-Tran. In 1995 the system
expanded to meet the needs of the residents
of Palm Beach County and is now what we
call Palm Tran.
Palm Tran averages around 35,000 pas-
sengers a month and is making some major
changes. Palm Tran is undergoing a "green"


the summer months.
Just as their showcase title suggested,
moving forward is what Street Beat is all
about.
Mr. Jackson along with his wife, Nerissa
Jackson, work together to bring the concerts
to the area.
"I would love to be able to start a series of
concerts called quarters, where once every
three months we would love to bring home
and feature outstanding artists who may
have come from the Glades area and are
working as professional musicians now,"
Mr. Jackson said.
He can see it now, what it might be like
to bring on Jazz trumpeter Dr. Ronald Mc-
Curdy, or perhaps singer Moiro Konchellah,
or Clayton Maddox, tuba player.


For several years, Palm Tran buses have
been housed at the Solid Waste Author-
ity building in Belle Glade. If a bus needed
maintenance, the driver would take it to
the main facility of Palm Tran in West Palm
Beach for service.
Approximately $2.9 million of the funding
for this project was earmarked and allocated
through the Federal Transit Administration
(FTA) beginning in 2006. Additionally, $3
million was received through the FTA under
the American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009.
The cost of the construction of the build-
ing and installation of major maintenance
equipment totaled approximately $5.7 mil-
lion.


makeover, which includes cleaner fuel, nitro-
gen filled tires, air purification in the buses,
new buses with cleaner engines, and even a
new bus wash that has an improved water
reclamation system which decreases water
usage through recycling.
Mrs. Lili Finke, spokesperson for Palm
Tran, is happy to be a part of it.
"When I first started here at Palm Tran I
had no idea or concept of what public trans-
portation was all about; all I knew is that it
was a bus! Well, I quickly came to the real-
ization that it is not just a bus. It is vital for
Palm Tran to provide safe, convenient and
affordable transportation to meet the needs
of our growing communities. Our passen-
gers relay on us!"
Cash fares are $1.50 for adults per bus
ride. All day unlimited ride QUIK passes are
available for $4 and you can get them from
the driver. QUIK passes also come in a 31-
day pass for $60.
There are also special deals for passen-
gers as well. Senior citizens, age 65 and over,
students who are 21 and under with a valid
school ID, and those with disabilities can
ride Palm Tran for the reduced fare of $0.75.
Reduced Daily ($2.75) and reduced 31-day
($45.00) QUIK Passes are also available.
Any Medicare recipient must show their
Medicare card to receive a reduced fare.
Customers with a Veterans' Administration
card marked "Service Connected" receive
a reduced fare. Keep in mind that custom-
ers with a Medicaid card do not receive a
reduced fare. Also, children under eight and
police officers in uniform can ride Palm Tran
free of charge.
To contact Palm Tran Transportation, feel
free to call 1-877-930-4287 toll free or call
1-561-841-4BUS (4287). You can also visit
the official website at www.palmtran.org.


He notes the importance in encourag-
ing successful adults to return, and younger
ones to feel the need to come back.
"I think it would be a great opportunity
for young people to come back the Glades
after college because they can come back
and have an impact instantly," he said. "In
other places they can do well but here they
would make a difference right away."
Uplifting the youth for they can see their

true potential is a major cornerstone of
Street Beat's foundation.
Julian Wilson, an active member of Street
Beat for nine years, found his true potential.
"I saw some Street Beat members danc-
ing and thought I should give it a try, Julian
reminisced. Now, dancing has become my
passion in life and I want to pursue a career
in it. I have Street Beat to thank for that."
