Some were given the opportunity to work at an animal clinic, others took on nursing roles at local programs. Some even learned the skills needed in the real estate trade, and at least one embarked on what might one day become a successful accounting career. And they are all mostly high school juniors. As part of an internship program coordinated by the Professional Opportunities Program for Students, Inc., the kids spent their vacation time learning valuable skills that’ll come in handy in a couple of years. POPS is a non-pro t group that partners with the Florida Department of Education to provide paid internships to students 16 to 18 years of age. The group has been in the area since January, but has operated for 10 years in the Orlando area. It has quickly branched out to communities in St. Petersburg, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and now Pahokee and Belle Glade.

The two-story building facing off at an angle from U.S. 27, near the city limits, has stood in some form or fashion for years. Meant as a tourism destination, the building languished. Some questioned if it would ever be completed, with each passing year doing little to convince anyone that the project hadn’t been altogether abandoned by the people who championed it in the beginning. In August, that facility and its partner location just a few feet to the west of it, the new community building, will host a grand opening and dedication. The story behind why it’s taken so long for the project to be realized has a lot to do with the fact that the city of South Bay simply could not afford to make it happen. The city entered into a long-term lease with the county in 2000, one stipulating agreement being that South Bay would design, construct and operate the “Crossroads Depot and Marketplace” within two years. Though it applied for and received a grant in the amount of $500,000 from the Florida Department of Transportation to help defray the Railroad Cottage, Tourism Site Nearly Complete PHOTO / JOSE ZARAGOZAThe new Railroad Cottage overhaul nishes a task the city of South Bay set upon ten years ago. It will serve as a tourism destination and tie into the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail. See Cottage — Page 11 Flagler Yellow for Tourism Landmark

BY MARK KINGAs the water level on Lake Okeechobee creeps up slowly, the shing has remained fairly steady for the last month and should be good going into next month. The water level is at 10.26 feet above sea level, a far cry from what it should be but it is a lot better than what it was a month ago. The w ater that is coming into the lake is mostly agricultural water and is very dirty. I'm sure it is full of things that the lake doesn't need but it is at least some water. I have been shing both here on Lake Okeechobee and in the Florida Keys and it hasn't been hard to catch sh at either location this summer. The bass seem to be sticking closer to deep water if that is what you can call it here on Okeechobee. I have been catching sh in the dynamite holes and out the main Clewiston channel for the past few weeks and the size of the bass have really surprised me for summer time shing. I have had a good number of bass from ve to eight pounds the past month and those are some really nice bass to catch in the summer time heat. I have been shing a couple different techniques this summer with one being my favorite: a shakey head rig and the other being a Carolina rig. For the Carolina rig I use either a Gambler Ace stick bait or a Gambler Super Stud minnow style bait. The Ace will work best on most days and y ou only need junebug colored ones to get the job done. My shakey head rig is the same that I have been using for over three years now and it is a Gambler Giggy Head jig in ounce size w ith a Sweebo worm in either junebug or black. The only other lure that has been producing for me has been a lipless crankbait in the sexy shad color. Yes, the color really does seem to matter. I have also been using a stop and go retrieve and the bass have been hitting it when you stop reeling the bait. Fishing with the wild shiners for bass has been a little slow and I nd this to be the case during the hot summer months. I have been trying to get my clients out as early in the morning as possible to get the best bite before the sun gets up to high in the sky and the mid afternoon heat slows the bite down. August w ill be a hot month here on Lake Okeechobee but, as we head into September, the bass should start heading in toward shallow water like they did last year. We enjoyed an awesome September last year catching a lot of big bass in the shallow w ater grassy areas. I am also hoping for some really good storms to help ll the lake back up before this winter and it may even take a tropical storm to do this so lets all keep are ngers crossed that we get a lot of rainfall before winter. The bluegill shing is still pretty good on the lake, try shing dynamite holes and along the rim canal in clean water areas. A cricket shed under a cork seams to be the best method to catch them. I am booking lobster trips for the months of A ugust and September to do some night time bully netting in the Keys. Just give me a call and w e can get a trip set up. Until next week, good luck, tight lines and hope to see each and every one of you on the water soon. And remember to drink lots of uids and use plenty of sunscreen as the summers are hot here in South Florida. Capt.

BY STATEPOINTHow to Save Money on Home Energy CostsYour home may be your castle, but it can also be your money pit if you’re not careful. Between home repairs and the rising cost of fuel, food, and electricity, many Americans are feeling the pinch. But you can do something about it. “Americans have a lot more power than they think when it comes to reducing their energy costs,” says Dave Llorens, CEO of One Block Off the Grid, a start-up that negotiates group deals on big-ticket green home improvements like solar panels. “State level incentives can go a long way tow ard reducing the cost of money-saving items like solar panels and electric cars. Call your local government of ce to nd out if incentives are available to you,” adds Llorens. “You may be surprised how much you can save.” Here are some ways you can reduce your home energy costs: Small Things Add Up. There are lots of little things you can do that, when taken together, can reduce your energy costs signi cantly. For example, setting your air conditioner to 78 degrees (or the warmest setting you can tolerate) saves money because many homeowners forget to adjust it down when the weather cools. Also, the lowly microwave is one of your household’s most energy ef cient appliances, so use it instead of an oven to reduce your bill and keep your home cooler in summer months. The w asher and dryer are two of a household’s biggest energy hogs, so doing your washing at night when electricity rates are lower and line drying during the day can save a bundle. Install Solar Panels. In summer months, solar panels can take the burn out of electric bills that spike with air conditioning use. It used to take a long time for solar panels to show a positive return on investment, but new green companies are nding ways to reduce that payback period. One Block Off the Grid, for example, organizes group deals on solar panels based on how many residents in the area are interested, then connects them with reliable local installers for free. This lets consumers buy solar panels at an average of 15 percent below market rate. Take a quick estimate at www.1bog.org. Consider an Electric Car. If you spend a lot of money on gas every month, you should run the numbers and see how much money going electric would save in the long run. It usually costs $25 to $40 a month to charge electric cars. Plus, you can use solar panels in conjunction with electric cars to reduce your monthly fuel costs to zero! For more ideas on how you can save money on energy, visit www.1bog.org. Then get started on reclaiming your castle with some energyand money-saving ideas!Hate tracking your nances? Only 40 percent of Americans use monthly budgets and less than half have ever ordered a copy of their credit report, according to a study by Princeton Survey Research Associates International. “Turning a blind eye when it comes to your nances is not only costly, but dangerous,” says Aaron Patzer, vice president and general manager of Intuit Personal Finance Group. “Luckily, there are easy tools and techniques that can help you track your money.” Here are some money tips to help you save more and spend less. To Budget Or Not Budget Budgeting is to personal nance what dieting is to health -a dreaded word that’s often misunderstood. But just like food gives you fuel to live well, so does your money support your life by helping you meet your needs and live your dreams. If you are budget-a-phobic, consider creating a spending plan, which can be a little more exible than a stuffy budget. Spending plans allow you to consider how this month’s earnings can support your needs and wants. Manage On The Go The key to budgets and spending plans is to know your numbers in real time. By tracking your daily spending, you become more conscious of your spending habits. You can make number tracking fun by using tools you enjoy that work with your life. For example, Mint.com now offers iPhone and Android phone apps that let users get a snapshot of their nances and manage their money anytime, anywhere. Consumers can also receive alerts for suspicious activities or overdrafts right on their smartphones. Automate Savings Whether you’re an online banking fanatic or someone who likes to balance electronic statements with paper checks, most experts advise automating your savings. It’s also helpful if you have a savings goal -whether it’s for new car, vacation, or emergency fund. Most experts recommend stashing away 15 to 20 percent of your income into a high-yield savings account. And online banks often offer better rates than bricks-and-mortar locations. By having your savings account automatically withdraw the funds, even if it’s only $50 a month, you’re more likely to stick to your savings goals. 30-Day Wait Smart shoppers know the wisdom of delayed grati cation. By committing to a 30-day wait before getting something you want but don’t need, you create a buffer where you can reconsider and be swayed by reason, not advertising. For more tips on budgeting, saving and tracking your money on the go, visit www.mint.com. Then get started on hand-picking the tools and techniques that let your money work for you. Money Saving Tips for Rough Season 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Narconon addiction specialists urge parents to stay alert to synthetic pot and it’s risksUntil this year the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been blocked from shutting down v endors selling aromatic incense that comes in packages marked “not for human consumption.” This meant that anyone, including minors, could w alk into shops, convenience stores and even gas stations, pay between $18 and $30 and walk out with legal synthetic marijuana. On March 1, the DEA took steps to change this. They evoked emergency powers to put a y ear-long ban pending testing on ve lab-manufactured chemicals contained in these products, J WH-018, JWH-073, CP-47,497, JWH-200, and cannabicyclohexanol. Each substance is a designer drug that mimics the primary psychoactive ingredient, THC, found in marijuana. The chemicals are sprayed onto herbal plant matter that is packaged and sold as aromatic incense. But did this ban solve the problem? “Unfortunately, the DEA can only ban speci c psychoactive chemicals,” explains Bobby Wiggins Drug Prevention Specialist of Narconon International. “As soon as the banned compounds are no longer found in the product, vendors are right back in business. The problem is manufacturing labs are able to make tiny alterations in the molecular structure of the THC-like derivative compounds used, which allows them to replace banned chemicals with new ones that have similar, but possibly more potent properties that are outside DEA jurisdiction.” Case in point, even as 30 states work to block the sale of K2, an incense product that led to psychosis severe enough to prompt a healthy 18-year-old athlete to shoot himself in the head, K3 arrived on the scene boasting that it was 100% free of banned chemicals and legal in all 50 states. Of course, the new product’s packaging also reads, “not for human consumption.” Synthetic marijuana has been around for almost two decades but it was largely ignored as few people were impressed by its properties. But In late 2008, herbal incense products started showing up from Europe containing traces of a psychoactive chemical known as HU-210. The compound is a Schedule I controlled substance that can be from 100 to 800 times as potent as THC. In 2009, Germany banned the sale of another herbal incense-type product, “spice,” because tests revealed it contained JWH-018 and another potent chemical, CP-47 497, developed by a drug company in the 1980s for research purposes. Its effects are three to 28 times more potent than THC. According to the U.S Department of Justice, between March 2010 and December 2010, U.S. poison control centers received over 2,700 synthetic cannabinoid related calls from 49 states. It’s too soon to say if long-term use of THC derivatives cause permanent harm, but so far there is evidence of damage to the lungs, brain, heart, and other vital organs. Attributed deaths in 2010 were nine. “With authorities hampered, the burden falls heavily on parents to keep this drug out of kids’ hands,” says Wiggins. “Kids might reason that it is okay because they aren’t breaking any laws, but they are messing with very potent and addictive drugs. If you suspect your son or daughter could be using synthetic marijuana or other drugs, get help.” For more information on marijuana and other drugs, visit www.narconon.org.

(Sound of Music memories!) Life is lled with simple pleasures, the little satisfying effects you never really anticipate, but always take great pleasure in. They are the gifts of life that we celebrate each in our own way. I believe life is in the details. Ongoing small gestures can mean so much more than one grand display of love. Simple pleasures throughout the day can be far more gratifying that one amazing weekend. When you connect the dots between all these little joys, life seems fuller and more satisfying. It’s the simple things and the simple pleasures, like sleeping in, an ice-cold Coca Cola on a hot day, a good hair day, a tender kiss, a comforting smile, a good hug, a kind word or a few w ords of encouragement that can really bless us in our day. And when the dog does bite, and when the bee does sting, and in those times when I’m feeling sad, I have found that these simple things and pleasures become God blessings that I can use to make my day more pleasant. They’re not big things, but each simple pleasure can translate to a great day if you use them right. Here are some more simple pleasures that I have on my list and give thanks to God for: + My dog excitedly greeting me when I come home. + Smelling rain. + Finding money I didn’t know I had. + Clean, fresh linens on my bed. + The smell of fresh baked cookies. + A child’s smile or laugh. + Looking at old pictures. + Helping someone in need. + When I nd exactly the right Bible verse. + A sermon or program coming together. + Finishing a project. + Creative baking. + A small gesture of kindness from someone w ho cares for me. + Free stuff + Swapping stories with friends. + Spending quite time with my wife. + My dog curled up at my feet sleeping while I type this. I have found that my list grows as I think of all the simple things that make life enjoyable. God is good! What are some of the simple pleasures you’ve been enjoying lately?Choosing Who I Really AmBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI was asked one day where I’d like to retire. My answer was “Somewhere where my blood pressure doesn’t change with each election!” The person asking the question smiled. I was being facetious; there may be no such place! In reality, it isn’t the place that will make the difference, it will boil down to my outlook and attitude. How many times have I heard “He (or she) makes me mad!” or “I won’t be pleased if this or that happens!” as if others had control over how we feel. In reality they may not have any such control at all. Who is responsible for our happiness or unhappiness? It is, when all is said and done, ourselves. How many people believe that we’re always supposed to be happy with our loved ones, or schooling is supposed to be fun and interesting, or their job is not supposed to be boring or hard, or Church is supposed to be something to be “enjoyed?” One young man, who was angry on a Sunday morning, told me “You know why I am here? Because my mother made me go, that’s why!” I asked him if he thought I always felt like getting up on Sunday morning and going to church. That question never crossed his mind: I was “supposed” to like it. Oh? Then I explained to him that we’re supposed to be here; with all of the highs and lows about it, and all of the good days and the bad ones; if we are here, something may come and maybe not; but if we are not here, nothing can possibly come. His face and attitude changed. An essay written in 1902 by James Allen is considered the source for “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Allen paraphrased Proverbs 23:7, telling us as we consider the cost of something, that’s how we are. The implications are far-reaching; do I have some control over my blood pressure? Yes. Can I learn to like something (someone) even if I think I don’t like it (them)? Yes. Can I keep my eyes on the reason I am in school or where my job ts into the larger part of our industry/society/community/world; and change my feelings about it? Yes. Do I let others or circumstances change my feelings, attitudes and beliefs about things or people? I try to listen carefully and attentively to what is out there; and choose how I am to be. If I spend time with good in uences, re ect positively, look for the best possible side of others, learn to keep things in perspective, I may get to be a little more like that person all of us seek to be. Years back, the medical sciences discovered the “placebo effect” – if you believed a medication was going to work, it might well work! Spiritually, the writer of Proverbs knew about it all along; only it’s not an imaginary thing, it’s for real and really works in our lives!Our HeritageBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchWe as Americans have a very rich heritage and this is the month that we hear about it. The awareness of the signi cance of our heritage has always taken place among the American people. We all should be proud and thankful to be Americans. As one studies American history, it quickly becomes evident that Christianity played a very signi cant role in the formation of our nation. Many of those who exerted a great deal of in uence in setting forth the ideals upon which our nation was founded were Christian men. The church played an important role in the formation of the frontier which was constantly expanding and ever spreading westward. It played a signi cant role during the slave issue and always voiced its opinion when it came to vital issues which affected the American people. Yes, the church has been very much involved in the formation of this great nation. However, I can’t help but believe that far too often one’s patriotism was placed on the same level as one’s Christianity. We as Christians must always remember that our true citizenship is in Heaven. We are members of the family of God and should always remember that our rst love is the Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. For too long Christianity has been placed on the same level with loyalty to country and Mom’s apple pie -to be a Christian is the American thing to do. Let us always remember that Christ’s Church has been around a lot longer than America and that the founding of America was based on religious convictions. We are Christians because we recognized our need for the Lord Jesus Christ and have accepted the free gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life offered because of His sacri ce, not because it is the patriotic or American thing to do. We must seek the Kingdom of God rst and then serve our country to the best of our ability. Once this is accomplished in the life of an individual, then will come true the saying, “He who serves the Lord best serves His nation best.” As we remember our great American heritage, let us not forget the far greater heritage which we have in Christ and the great future which He offers us.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Economic Opportunities in Glades AreaWorkforce Alliance, the nonpro t organization chartered by the State of Florida to create and lead workforce development in Palm Beach County, is working with organizations involved in several major development projects in the Glades area to increase local employment and economic opportunities. "Workforce Alliance is collaborating with ve major development projects that are currently underway in the Glades area, six major projects scheduled to begin by the end of 2012, and one potential major project in our ongoing efforts to boost employment and increase local economic opportunities," said Kathryn Schmidt, president and chief executive of cer of Workforce Alliance. Key Workforce Alliance executives and staff members recently met with the mayors and city managers from the tri-cities area of Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay in the rst of a series of meetings. "The dialogue was part of our ongoing commitment to increase employment and economic opportunity in the Glades area and to collaborate with key community leaders in furthering these initiatives," Ms. Schmidt said. The next meeting is scheduled for August 24, 2011. The ve major projects now underway in the Glades area are: Herbert Hoover Dike -$991 million structure renovation project, with 155 local residents hired and $806,125 spent with local businesses and suppliers to date Court House Renovation -$9 million work to begin soon Belle Glade Marina -$2.3 million construction project, with $60,977 spent with local businesses and suppliers to date South Florida Water Management District Everglades Restoration -$100 million project in Palm Beach County and an $85 million project in Hendry County to build pump stations and storm water treatment areas. 100 local residents from the Glades have been hired. SR 80 Improvements -$4 million guardrail construction project, with 6 local residents hired. Project to be completed in 180 days. The six major projects scheduled in the Glades area for 2011-2012 are: Belle Glade Library -$6.2 million construction project Rosenwald Elementary School -$15 million renovation project Pahokee High School -$4.8 million renovation project Pahokee Fire Station new construction project (estimate not yet available) South Bay Fire Station new construction project (estimate not yet available) Rebuild of Gove Elementary -$28 million project A potential major project in the Glades area is: Inland Port 850-acre Intermodal Logistics Center to receive, warehouse and distribute cargo from ports in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami (an agreement to collaborate on the development, construction and operation of the center was announced on July 21, 2011 by the Port of Palm Beach and Florida Crystals Corporation) From July 2010 to June 2011, Workforce Alliance placed 637 candidates in jobs connected with the above projects and placed an additional 699 individuals in other jobs in the Glades area. Besides helping job seekers enter or re-enter the job market, Workforce Alliance helps improve the economy by providing services to employers and funding training programs to ensure that current workers remain quali ed for their jobs. These no-cost services include recruitment, assessments and referrals of quali ed job candidates; space for screening/interviewing candidates; grants for training new or existing employees; and outplacement assistance. "Our wide range of professional programs helps employers recruit, hire and train quali ed job candidates. We also assist Palm Beach County residents with employment resources and career development," Ms. Schmidt said. On average, more than 11,000 visitors each month are being helped by specialized services that are provided at no cost in the Workforce Alliance Career Centers in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Belle Glade. The centers offer free workshops and other resources for job-skills training and career counseling, with the objective of helping people nd jobs. Workforce Alliance Targets Increased Employment costs, the grant required the city to provide nearly $800,000 of the project total an amount that w ould prove too much for the small city. Unable to carry it forward due to budgetary issues and rising construction costs, the city returned the partially completed depot building and property to the county in 2009. The county was able to retain the grant funding from FDOT, this time without the requirement of any matching funds, and quickly took on the task of nishing the project. On Wednesday morning, crews could be seen at the site, putting the nal touches on the Railroad Cottage. The inside of the facility was white w ith freshly applied paint, and drop cloths covering the oor that were scheduled to be worked on. The sight, even in its un nished form, is a far cry from what it looked like just a few years earlier. On the exterior, the decorative walkways and rails were painted bright white, and the outside faade of the cottage had been painted in the color of Flagler Yellow harking back to the style of the era. The plan is to nish up work on the project, as well as the rental community building next to it, in the near-future. Other improvements w ill include a landmark Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (L.O.S.T.) Kiosk and a visitor's guide designating the park as an eco-tourism destination. Once the site is complete, the next phase of the project will include, according to the county, renovation of the existing boat ramps on the Lake Okeechobee Rim Canal near the building and campground. New nger piers and oating stage docks, as well as a pedestrian pathway, will be added.

Not quite sure what to expect, he conjured images of the muck and the football heritage of the local communities, but a few months later Derek can comment about another underutilized resource: young students w ho want to work hard and succeed. All they need is to be given a chance, Mr. Payne said. “The program works to keep kids in the mindset of who they really are, not to look at their circumstances to determine who they are,” he said. The program works with students during and after school, teaching them how to manage their bank accounts, teaching nancial management and preparing the kids for their summer internships. To participate, students ll out an application and appear before a committee which selects the students. The program reaches out to a special segment of kids. “We work with kids with at-risk issues, homes w ith single mothers, or maybe they have issues in their background,” said Payne. “But we teach them that it’s not where you come from, but w here you go that matters.” According to him, at least one student was assigned to the local Department of Children and Families of ce, giving the young person a whole new perspective on the issues facing their communities today. The program will be recognizing the students today during a presentation at 1 p.m. According to Payne, the program will also highlight the community partners who brought them on board as interns for the summer. One of the most integral partners, according to Payne, has been the city of Pahokee. Through the involvement of the city commissioners and the city manager himself, the program has ourished. Payne said that it was the city that brought business partners on board, and it was the city that provided the program space at the parks and rec building. The program will start again on Aug. 22. The program shoots to enlist younger students that can be tracked for a number of years in the program. The kids so far have responded enthusiastically. “I think that these kids were waiting on an opportunity that has arrived and they’re seizing the moment.” SchoolsContinued From Page 1 SUBMITTED PHOTOStudents participate in worthwhile training and exercises leading up to their professional internships at local businesses in t he Glades area.

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than Id expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

But after 50 years of research, scientists have yet to deliver a successful method. Researchers’ efforts have been hindered by awed experiments and lack of eld testing, according to experts with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Their ndings appear in a review article published online this week by the journal Biological Control. Subterranean termites account for 80 percent of the nation’s annual $4.1 billion in termite control expenses. Colonies can hold anywhere from 100,000 to 1 million of the wood-destroying insects, and miles of pencil-sized tunnels. In past studies conducted at many institutions, researchers have experimented with fungi, bacteria, nematodes and viruses thought to be promising biological control agents, said Thomas Chouvenc, a postdoctoral associate with UF’s Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center and the review’s lead author. In a typical study, termites in a con ned space are exposed to an enemy organism, often at concentrations impossible to achieve in the wild. “We can kill a bug in a jar, but the vast majority of these studies don’t describe any way to implement that approach in the real world,” Chouvenc said. Distributing a pathogen or parasite in a termite colony is no easy task, said Nan-Yao Su, a UF entomology professor at the center and another author of the study. He developed a baiting system widely used to control subterranean termites. The insects detect and avoid some fungal pathogens, and will close tunnels to con ne threats. Other behaviors, such as constant grooming and removal of dead individuals, reduce the likelihood of pathogen transmission. Among the 227 studies analyzed, many were authored by scientists who were not termite experts and probably had little understanding of the insects’ behavior, Su said. Biological control of subterranean termites may be possible, he said, but researchers should learn from past mistakes—notably, the focus on soil-dwelling fungi as potential control agents. “Termites have lived in the soil with those fungi for millions of years, and they have evolved a wide range of mechanisms to prevent the pathogens from spreading within the colony,” Su said. “You need something that has not coevolved with termites.” The key to success, Chouvenc said, might be nding a pathogen that can spread to other termites before its host dies, not after. Both researchers say journals are often biased toward publishing studies that show positive results, meaning that scientists may not learn about unsuccessful experiments. “We need to encourage negative reporting so we don’t replicate the same mistakes,” Su said. New Approaches Needed if Biological Control of Termites to Succeed SUBMITTED PHOTO N an-Yao Su, a termite expert with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricult ural Sciences, poses with a tabletop model of a subterranean termite nest in this le photo. Su and colleague Thomas Chouvenc recently authored a review paper that suggests previous e fforts to develop biological control methods for subterranean termites have been hampered b y inadequate studies. The review, published in the journal Biological Control, looked at 227 s tudies conducted at numerous universities over a 50-year period. Many of the studies simply e xamined whether a natural enemy could kill subterranean termites under laboratory condit ions, and did not involve experiments with actual termite nests.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonCitizen scientists, birdwatchers and photographers of all skills and ages, in inland Florida are participating and submitting their observations to numerous bird monitoring projects being conducted by government and nonpro t agencies. A few include the North American Migration Counts in the fall and spring, Christmas Bird Count, Great Backyard Bird Count, Bluebird Blitz, Eagle Watch, Avian Center for Birds of Prey (Swallowtailed Kite), and Project Feeder Watch. The data submitted by volunteers is used to help monitor the frequency and abundance of various bird species. On September 17, birders and photographers w ill be joining teams at assigned areas or working solo at home to help tally the species and number of birds in the inland counties and Lake Okeechobee during the Fall North American Migration Count. The data for Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee County will be compiled by HendryGlades Audubon and submitted to the Florida Ontological Society. Contact Margaret England for information or a bird checklist for the Fall North A merican Migration Count. One bird that usually migrates to South America before the annual Fall North American Migration Count is the Common Nighthawk. The Common Nighthawk, is a common summer resident throughout inland Florida. This medium-sized bird of "least concern" has a large head with a tiny bill and is well camou aged with brown, black and gray feathers and barring on the chest. In ight, long pointed bent wings with a white patch are observed during diving displays which makes them look like a big bat with headlights. It is know in some areas as the "bullbat". During courtship the male can create a booming sound from air rushing through its wingtips during a steep drive. Their call is a short "peet". They are most active during early daylight and later afternoon. Common nighthawks can be seen resting on horizontal tree limbs, fences and utility wires during the midday hours. Their diet consists mainly of ying insects that are caught on the wing, near dawn and dusk or sometimes at night with a full moon or near street lights. Common Nighthawks do not build nests, but will lay two eggs directly on bare ground, in raised locations such as stumps or gravel roofs. The female is largely responsible for the 20 day incubation. Young edge at 20 days of age. Common Nighthawks are being observed throughout inland Florida, ying at dawn and dusk near roadways and power lines. They will begin migration to their wintering ground in South America soon.

BY STATEPOINTLooking for some great summer reading to help get you through the dog days of the season? Why not catch up on American classics you might have missed in your youth. The long sunny days are great for lounging and meandering through some American classics, many of which enjoy a controversial history that makes them all the more worth exploring. The Civil War Historic and huge, Shelby Foote’s three-volume history of the Civil War is a must for American history buffs. Focused on the military campaigns, “The Civil War: A Narrative” was published between 1958 and 1974. Yet, it has been criticized in recent years for its neglect of political and social factors in the war, particularly slavery. This year, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the complete set has been reissued with commentary by Jon Meacham, a Pulitzer-prize winning author himself. But if any amount of reading about the Civil War seems dry, check out Ken Burns’s PBS documentary, The Civil War, which relies heavily on Foote’s research. Atlas Shrugged More than 50 years after “Atlas Shrugged” debuted as a New York Times bestselling novel, it has made the bestseller lists again this year, bringing total sales to over seven million copies. And with the recent release of a movie of the same name, conservative and liberals across the country are engaging in spirited debates over the writings of Ayn Rand, a controversial philosopher who espoused individualism over collective interest. “‘Atlas Shrugged’ is an interesting and compelling story today,” says David Kelley, president and founder of The Atlas Society, a nonpro t organization based on Rand’s teachings about Objectivism and capitalism. “It provides incredible parallels with our current state of affairs.” Whether you agree or disagree with Rand’s worldview, her work is a must-read for anyone interested in the political and economic history and future of America. Her books have sold a cumulative 25 million copies and even sparked a social movement focused on the championing of personal liberty and entrepreneurialism. For more information, visit www.atlassociety.org. To Kill A Mockingbird Celebrated and banned, Harper Lee’s only published novel is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Loosely based on an event in Lee’s own hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, the book is a coming-of-age novel narrated by a young white girl named Scout as she watches the trial of a falsely accused African American man, defended by her father Atticus. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, but has also been banned by schools for use of profanity and frank discussion of race. Yet the 1962 lm starring Gregory Peck and Robert Duvall met with critical acclaim. Through controversy and poetry, history and plot, these works continue to in uence public debate in America. Isn’t it time you got in on the conversation? Roofing 21 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Great Summer Reads To Beat Those Dog Days To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand The Civil War by Shelby Foote SUBMITTED PHOTO BY STATEPOINTNew research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on “swimmer’s ear” underscores the need for the public to play an active role in ensuring healthy pools. The study indicates “swimmer’s ear” accounts for 2.4 million doctor visits and nearly $500 million in health care costs annually. The CDC is encouraging swimmers to test pool water for proper chemistry. To help keep swimming fun and healthy this summer, the Water Quality & Health Council is once again making free pool test kits available so swimmers can check pH and chlorine readings. According to the CDC, pools with proper pH and chlorine readings are less likely to harbor bacteria that cause “swimmer’s ear” and germs that cause other recreational water illnesses, including diarrhea and athlete’s foot. Free pool test kits are available at www.healthypools.org/freeteststrips. Last summer, the council provided more than 43,000 free pool test kits. Data submitted by swimmers who requested kits found that 40 percent of pools had unacceptable levels of chlorine or pH readings. When testing pool water, the pH should register between 7.2 and 7.8 and the free chlorine level should be between 1.0 and 4.0 parts per million. If readings are outside these ranges, pool staff should be noti ed immediately. Pool operators should check disinfectant levels and pH at least twice daily. Swimmers requesting test kits are encouraged to upload readings to the Healthy Pools website, which even offers a smart-phone application so swimmers can upload data poolside. In a recent survey by the Water Quality & Health Council, nearly one in ve adults admitted to urinating in pools and one in three said they don’t shower before swimming. In addition to using pool test kits, swimmers can use their senses to check for signs of healthy pools. Tips For Safe Swimming

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 23 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Information session is Aug. 25, applications due Oct. 1Palm Beach State College will begin offering its much-anticipated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in January to help registered nurses w ith associate degrees boost their training. An information session will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 25 in Room 129 in the Natural Science building on the Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave. Faculty and advisors will be on hand to answer questions about the requirements and the application process for the program. The B.S.N. at Palm Beach State creates a more affordable path for registered nurses with an associate degree and a current Florida nursing license to advance their education and move into administrative and supervisory roles in health care. The application deadline for the inaugural class of up to 105 students is Oct. 1. “I am pumped. I can’t wait to get this program up and going and to let the nurses begin,” said Dr. Gary Reardon, program director, who has been a registered nurse for 30 years. “I want nurses to embrace the future because the future is in education. Nurses should be practicing at the highest level of education that they possibly can.” Palm Beach State received approval from the State Board of Education last summer to offer the B.S.N. and received nal approval earlier this year from its accrediting body, the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This marks the third bachelor’s degree program at the College. The College began offering its rst bachelor’s degree, a Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management, in fall 2009. Earlier this year, it added the B.A.S. in Information Management. With the types of medical issues facing patients today, Reardon said it is critically important for nurses to continue learning. “Our health care system is in such a state that our patients’ diagnoses are much more complex than they’ve ever been. With a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a focus on leadership, it will help that nurse to navigate through the complex systems that ultimately will assist the patients on their road to recovery. ” “There is a lot of demand in the hospitals that have moved toward specialized status where they’re going to need many of their nurses to be bachelor’s degree prepared, so the time is great on this,’’ said Dr. Anita Kaplan, dean of bachelor degree programs. The program includes 36 credit hours (12 classes) and a capstone project with two clinical components: community and leadership. Courses will be offered online and in person.

We need family, friends, and regular social banter to be happy. But apparently, we’re not the only social animals. There are many things we can learn from pets and wildlife about friendships and taking care of each other. In fact new research has shown that animals of different species can even develop deep friendships with each other. A new book titled “Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom” is hitting the bestsellers’ lists and showing the world about the prevalent but unique bonds between different animal species across the world. “I expect that anyone who loves animals, and even those who don`t, can`t help but be touched by these unusual partnerships,” says author and National Geographic writer Jennifer Holland. “They remind us that kindness can rise above anything, even instinct.” For example, when Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans in 2005, many pet owners were forced to abandon their pets as they rushed to high ground. As domesticated animals w ere forced to fend for themselves, some formed packs for protection. Among them were Bob Cat, a male cat, and Bobbi, a female dog, each with a bobbed tail. The fact that Bob Cat was fully blind made the animals’ relationship all the more touching. Bobbi the dog had been keeping Bob Cat safe by barking or nudging him in the right direction. But such strong bonds are not seen only in domesticated animals. In China, staff at a natural reserve witnessed an unusual bond between an abandoned rhesus monkey and white dove believed to be part of a bird migration study. For two months, the macaque and dove shared a space and snacked on corn together. The monkey even showed affection, hugging the dove. If only the dove had hands and arms with which to hug back! Of course, the most surprising interspecies bonds can sometimes be between humans and other animals, particularly predators. When National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen was assigned to shoot leopard seals in the Antarctic, he was determined to shoot fast and get out quick. Leopard seals have been known to attac k humans. But a 12-foot female took a liking to Nicklen. The seal hovered around him, as if posing for the camera. She then hunted and killed a penguin -the seal’s usual prey -and offered it to Nicklen repeatedly. When the photographer ignored her offering, the seal then brought him live penguins and blew bubbles in his face, as if exasperated with his passive nature. For more stories of remarkable friendships in the animal kingdom, check out “Unlikely Friendships.” “If animals can do it, humans can also learn to accept their differences, big and small, and believe in the power of friendship,” says Holland. “After all, it’s in our nature.” What We Can Learn From Pets and Wildlife SUBMITTED PHOTO SUBMITTED PHOTOGlades students can sign up for nursing courses at Palm Beach State College.
