Popular bass player had played at a wedding the night before he diedBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThe deputy who spoke to Susana said he was not in charge of the case, but had been asked to visit with her because he spoke Spanish. He wore glasses and told the young mother that her husband, along with her brother, had plunged into a dark canal just outside of Belle Glade in a 1996 Chevrolet Beretta. Susana had been searching for them since 8 p.m. that day, with the two having left 14 hours earlier to go shing. The call came into to the sheriff's of ce of the accident just past 8:30 that morning. She was worried because they had been drinking, and later on when she heard the ambulances zooming by, she felt a sinking feeling in her gut. The deputy's visit after midnight brought an unwelcome resolution: Both were killed. "Miss, I don't like delivering news like this," the deputy said. For the next few minutes, no one said another word and they all cried together, including the sympathizing of cer. The two men who died on Sunday after their vehicle failed to maneuver a curve were Efrain Mojica Alcala, 27, and Esteban Rodriguez, 29. Susana was married to Efrain, and Esteban was her brother.

For the Clewiston Tigers, who came into their Sept. 16 road game against the Glades Day Gators with a 0-2 record, the above play call could go down as a season-changing breakthrough moment of sorts. With just 11:18 left in the fourth quarter Clewiston was already facing a 13-7 lead at this point Glades Day's young secondary unit didn't see it coming, but the Tigers lined up at Clewiston's 29-yard line to try out an end-zone pass. Clewiston junior quarterback Tyler Clemmons, with the protection of his offensive lineman, threw a perfect pass to the left side as Tigers playmaker Ahmad Richards caught the pigskin and raced his way untouched into the end zone for a 20-7 lead and eventual win. "I knew I was going to get it," Richards said of the game-winning catch. "It was a great play call by our coaches." While that may have been the biggest play of the game, it wasn't the only one that went in favor for Clewiston. On the Tigers opening drive of the game, junior running back Virthavious Robinson and his offensive line unit set the tone very early, as he scored the game's rst touchdown with 9:12 left in the rst quarter a 43-yard run down the Clewiston Scores Road Win Over Glades DayGlades Central wins epic battle in Delray Beach; Pahokee gets blown out by Delray Beach’s other team See Glades Day — Page 10 PHOTO / JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZAGlades Day experienced heartbreak last Friday when they were defeated by the Clewiston Tigers on their home turf.

BY RANDY SMITH SFWMDAt a public hearing tonight, the South Florida W ater Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board adopted a $576.1 million budget for Fiscal Y ear 2012 (Oct. 1, 2011 – Sept. 30, 2012). The annual budget funds the agency’s core ood control and water supply missions as well as its continued progress to restore the South Florida ecosystem, w hich includes America’s Everglades. “The District successfully built a scally sound budget focused on core responsibilities to protect the quality of life for 7.7 million South Floridians and bene t a unique environment,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Joe Collins. “This austere budget lowers taxes for South Florida property owners while allowing the District to move forward with important projects that will restore and improve the South Florida ecosystem, including Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.” The approved $576.1 million budget contains a signi cant investment in the environment, including $26 million appropriated by the Florida Legislature to help keep Everglades restoration progress on track. A full 70 percent of the FY2012 budget is dedicated to bene t restoration, protect South Florida’s resources and enhance ood control operations. Key highlights of the budget include: $50 million for refurbishment of the regional ood control network of 2,600 miles of canals and levees. $10.3 million to complete construction of stormwater treatment areas to further improve the quality of water owing into the Everglades. Since 2006, the District has invested more than $270 million to expand the state’s 45,000-acre network of treatment wetlands south of Lake Okeechobee by an additional 13,500 acres. $38 million to initiate pump construction that will deliver water to help restore the Loxahatchee River and enhance water supplies. $14.3 million to provide water storage in the northern Everglades through public-private partnerships. $3.7 million to complete construction of the $35.8 million Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area that will clean water owing into Lake Okeechobee. $930,000 to substantially complete construction of the C-111 Spreader Canal and the rst phase of the Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands project. The District has invested close to $36.5 million to construct these restoration projects that will bene t Biscayne Bay, Florida Bay and the Everglades. $2 million to begin water quality treatment and storage projects in the Caloosahatchee watershed. The District’s annual budget is funded by a combination of ad valorem (property) taxes, and other sources such as federal, state and local revenue; licenses; permit fees; grants; agricultural taxes; investment income and bond proceeds. About 47 percent of the total FY2012 budget comes from property taxes. The approved tax rates represent 43.6 cents per thousand dollars of value in 15 of the District’s 16 counties (the Okeechobee Basin). For example, a home with a taxable value of $100,000 (assessed value of $150,000, less the $50,000 homestead exemption) would see a total District tax bill of $43.63. For Collier County and mainland Monroe County (the Big Cypress Basin), the tax rates represent 34.2 cents per thousand dollars. A similar home in this region would see a tax bill of $34.18. For the 19th consecutive year, the District has been recognized by the Government Finance Ofcers Association of the United States and Canad a (GFOA) with its Distinguished Budget Presentation Award — the highest form of professional recognition in governmental budgeting.

During Thanksgiving week of November 2011, the Florida Trail Association will celebrate it’s 20th annual Big “O” Hike, a 9-day, 110-mile walk around Lake Okeechobee. This is South Florida’s biggest (non-fundraising) walking event and participants come from many areas of the United States and Canada. On opening day this year, Nov. 19, walkers will begin at the Pahokee Marina and head north on the Herbert Hoover Dike. There will be some variations this year due to Corps of Engineer construction projects. Nine days later the walkers will somehow return to the starting point. The purpose of the walk is threefold: To draw attention to Lake Okeechobee and the communities around the lake To highlight the Lake Okeechobee section of the Florida National Scenic Trail To introduce people to walking as an enjoyable and healthful pastime. The walkers support the local economies by spending thousands of dollars each year in campgrounds, restaurants, gas stations, and retail outlets. This year the event is being sponsored by the members of the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association. Please spread the word about this upcoming event. Walk around Lake Okeechobee (the 2011 Big “O” Hike) Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.52/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 84.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 3.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 2.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 88.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “It took the end of summer for a drop in retail gasoline prices, but I’m sure motorists won’t complain that we’re nally seeing some drops in prices,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “We’ve seen wholesale prices continue to be somewhat volatile, but I believe as we enter October we’ll see markets slowly quiet down with retail gasoline prices falling to $3.35-$3.55 on average by Thanksgiving, with the exception being typical hotspots on the West Coast,” DeHaan adds.

The organization also is a HUD-approved agency for counselling on credit, rst time home buyers and foreclosure matters. In the previous article we went through the steps of building a budget. Next is the important step of tracking your spending during the month to see exactly where your income goes. This can be done on paper, computer, or even some phone applications that help you track expenses. No matter what method you use, be sure to write down or record the date, amount you spent, and what you bought. This is made easier if you have columns on your paper or spreadsheet that you can enter the expenses under. That way at the end of the month you can add up the numbers in each column and compare the amount you spent against your items in your budget to know how you are doing. The purpose of tracking spending is to see where our money really goes. At the end of the month, see if you have any surprises in terms of what you spent. For example, many of us don’t realize how much we spend on eating out with friends or picking up fast food for our family. But even at $6/day for lunch each work day, you would end up spending about $120/month or $1,440/year. However, the purpose of a budget is not to cut out all non-essential items that you enjoy. If you do that, staying on your budget will be too hard and you’ll stop trying. Rather, leave money for some things you enjoy in your budget but do them in moderation based on what you can afford, or save them as special treats to reward yourself when you reach certain goals. In the example above, maybe you want to bring your lunch some days and save eating out with your friends for special days of the week. The rst month of using a budget you may nd your spending is very different than what you budgeted. Use your spending record to review your budget and make adjustments to categories that were too high or low. But remember to look for other expenses to cut if you have to raise the budgeted amount for some. This is also the time to think about your needs versus your wants. A need is something you must have like food, a safe place to live, and similar things. On the other hand, wants are things that are nice to have but aren’t absolutely necessary. These may include a newer car when your old one is still running ne. But if your budget is already tight, you will need to wait to buy these wants until you save enough money or until your income has increased. As you consider new purchases, take time to stop and think about them. If they are items you want rather than need, think about whether you have the money to pay for them and what you will have to give up to purchase these items now. The goal is to stop and think about your purchases rather than buying something impulsively or without considering all the costs. As you go through the next month, track your spending again using your adjusted budget. Remember to stay focused on your goals. When it gets hard to stay on budget and not spend that extra money for something you really want but don’t necessarily need, think back to your goals. Think about why you’re trying to save money and what that will allow you to do when you reach that goal. Maybe it’s buying a new car or paying off a credit card. Think about how you’ll feel when you accomplish that goal and let that help motivate you to stay on your budget. Next week we’ll continue our series and cover ways to save money.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARINGThe City of Clewiston has tentatively adopted a budget for Fiscal Year 2011-2012. Apublic hearing to make a Final Decision on the budget AND TAXES will be held on: September 26, 2011 at 5:30 pm at Commission Chambers Clewiston City Hall 115 West Ventura Avenue Clewiston, Florida 33440 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 22, 2011 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades Audubon The United States’ national emblem, the Bald Eagle, was once threatened with extinction. Through re-introduction efforts, habitat management and protection under the Endangered Species Act they have made a remarkable recovery. Some Eagles are year-round Florida residents, however many head north in the spring and return in the fall to nest. Florida has the third largest breeding population of Bald Eagles following Alaska and Minnesota. It is estimated that there are more than 1,100 breeding pairs of Bald Eagles in Florida. The adult Bald Eagle is a large raptor with brown plumage and an all white head. They have a long white slightly wedge-shaped tail. This magni cent bird is not actually bald. “Bald” is derived from an older meaning of the word “piebald” which means “white-headed.” Its large hooked beak and feet are bright yellow. The legs are featherless and toes are short with large powerful talons. Their average lifespan in the wild is about 20 years. Vocalization is a high-pitched whistling or piping sound. Huge nests of branches and twigs are usually built in a tall pine tree near water, but oaks are sometime used. Their nests are often lined with fresh moss, grasses and leaves. Eggs are incubated for 32 to 34 days with young edging at 10 to 12 weeks. The plumage of immature Bald Eagles, three years old or younger is mostly brown speckled with white. Bald Eagles’ main diet is sh, but the y will eat carrion, birds and small animals. Watch the sky for these powerful yers soaring and gliding overhead. Eagles are being reported returning to their nests in inland Florida. If you would like to participate in the Oct. 15 birding trip to STA5, e-mail Margaret England sta5birding@embarqmail.com. Include your name and contact information including an emergency cell number, the date you want to participate, and the number of people in your party.

Something Worth PonderingBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchLife is full of questions and oddities which most people don’t take time to contemplate. But I’m not most people. There are some things that just start my inquiring mind wondering. For instance, if you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done? When dog food tastes new and improved, who tested it? What if there were no hypothetical questions? Can an atheist get insurance against acts of God? And there’s more. Why do they put Braille on the drive through bank machines? If man evolved from apes why do we still have apes? What hair color do they put on the driver’s license of a bald man? And inquiring minds want to know: Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways? If a man stands in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong? What was the best thing before sliced bread? But it’s not just about questions. Throughout our lives we encounter statements which also invite further contemplation. For example: Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted. Blessed are the exible for they shall not be bent out of shape. Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry. From a faith perspective: You are the light of the world. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts. Atheism is a non-prophet organization. He w ho dies with the most toys is still dead. If you w ere arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? We all need to step back and regain perspective once in a while. Consider this statement from A .W. Tozer: “A real Christian is an odd number. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen; talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see; expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another; empties himself in order to be lled; admits he is wrong so he cannot be declared right; goes down in order to get up; is strongest w hen he is weakest; richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels the worst. He dies so he can live; forsakes in order to have; gives away so he can keep; sees the invisible; hears the inaudible; and knows that which passes knowledge.” That’s de nitely something worth pondering!Silver and GoldBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchBeing in hard times, people have their share of dif culties making ends meet. Churches are often called upon to help people who suddenly nd themselves in dire straits. Often they’re sent from other agencies or service centers and advised to seek help through religious bodies in communities. I do what I can, and I am know that others do likewise. Often I am at a loss where to send people to get help; my resources are too limited to meet many of the needs that are brought to our doorstep. Many times, when I’ve suggested something, it is evident that the person has already tried there without success. There are no shortages of legitimate needs for housing, utilities, food, rent, payments among persons who suddenly nd themselves out of work or burdened with unplanned-for expenses. The Biblical account found in Acts (chapter 3, verses 1ff) struck a chord as I re-read it one day. A beggar confronted Peter and John, crippled from birth and seeking money. His handicap must have kept him from thinking about what he might do in spite of it, so he goes to where people congregate seeking some extra change. Peter told him, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, walk (verse 6)”; then he took the man by the hand and helped him up. There could be many interpretations of this moment; maybe it’s possible that Peter and John helped the man to try something he had not tried before. The miracle might have been in causing the beggar to have faith in his own abilities; the power was within himself but he didn’t know it. Many times that has been the message from those who try to spread the meager resources entrusted to them; money is very, very short but help may be in nding another way than the usual ones already tried. What hasn’t been tried before? Who else might be able to help? Where haven’t you sought? Can I ask on your behalf hoping that I might get through to someone who has said “no” in the past? Whatever the dif culty, the gift of showing life can be complete in spite of it is what can nally make all of the difference. Those who do well are not those with no problems; they’ve learned that God gives us the power within to go forward in spite of them. I’ve found in the Biblical healing accounts that there is always something aside from saying “Here, you’re xed” and that may be more important than just the physical change. Often there is a revelation about nding faith in the person healed, the recognition of more than what is rst seen, that the person is made whole and not simply “healed.” May we all work together, and especially in these times of great need, to bring wholeness even when our resources are very limited. I hope I do my part.Parents and ChildrenBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchParents are responsible to train their children. This is done in two ways: By teaching them right from wrong and by setting a proper example by always doing the right thing. The latter is the most important because: “What you are speaks so loud that I can’t hear a word your say.” Parents need to teach their children “responsibility.” Here’s a list of things a parent should instruct their children as to what they can and cannot do. 1. I can share your life, but I cannot live it for you. 2. I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn. 3. I can give you directions, but I cannot always lead you. 4. I can allow you freedom, but I cannot account for it. 5. I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe. 6. I can teach your right from wrong, but I cannot decide for you. 7. I can give you love, but I cannot force it upon you. 8. I can teach you to be a friend, but I cannot make you one. 9. I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unsel sh. 10. I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honor. 11. I can tell you the facts of life, but I cannot build your reputation. 12. I can tell you about lofty goals, but I cannot achieve them for you. 13. I can teach you to obey, but I cannot answer for your actions. 14. I can warn you about sins, but I cannot make your morals. 15. I can love you as my child, but I cannot place you in God’s family. 16. I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God. 17. I can teach you about Jesus, but I cannot make him your Savior. 18. I can teach you about prayer, but I cannot make you pray. 19. I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you Eternal Life. I would advise every parent to sit down with their children and go over these 19 things. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 N O T I C E O F P R O P O S E D T A X I N C R E A S E The Board of County Commissioners of Hendry County, Florida has tentatively adopted a measure to increase its property tax levy.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 22, 2011 Palm Beach County’s unemployment rate for August 2011 was 11.0 percent – down 0.2 percentage points from the July 2011 rate of 11.2 percent – and a 1.3 percentage point decrease from the August 2010 rate of 12.3 percent, according to information provided today by Workforce Alliance and the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. The state unemployment rate for August 2011 was 10.9 percent and the national rate was 9.1 percent. “It’s encouraging to note that Palm Beach County experienced its largest over-the-year employment increase of 2011, adding 8,100 jobs over the last 12 months, and job openings have increased 12.6 percent compared to this same time last year,” said Steve Craig, interim chief executive of cer of Workforce Alliance, the nonpro t organization chartered by the State of Florida to create and lead workforce development in Palm Beach County. Palm Beach County experienced employment growth in six industry categories over the last 12 months, including include leisure and hospitality (+5,700 jobs), education and health services (+4,100 jobs), professional and business services (+1,700 jobs), other services (+400 jobs), transportation/warehousing (+300 jobs), and nancial activities (+100 jobs). Job losses over the same period were primarily in wholesale and retail trade (-1,800 jobs), construction (-1,000 jobs) government (-900 jobs), and information (-500 jobs). There also were 14,978 advertised job openings in Palm Beach County in August 2011, an increase of 1,671 jobs (+12.6 percent) from August 2010. Job openings bottomed out in January 2009 in Palm Beach County, with demand increasing by 5,301 openings since then. In the most recent program year (July 2010 to June 2011), Workforce Alliance placed 12,771 candidates in jobs – a record number and a 19 percent increase compared to the previous year. Besides helping record numbers of area job seekers enter or re-enter the job market, Workforce Alliance helps improve the economy by providing services to employers and funding training programs that upgrade the job skills of current workers. These 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.

middle of the eld for a 6-0 lead. "Virthavious told us he was going to come in and execute," Clewiston senior tight end/linebacker Chauncey Thicklin said of Robinson's rushing score. "Our offensive line came up with some good blocks on that play and he just came through." The Tigers scored their second touchdown early in the second quarter, courtesy of a 47-yard run to the end zone by fellow junior running back DeMarcus Terry. Clewiston stretched its lead to 13-0 at that juncture and never trailed in the game. "This is the combination we believed would take us to the next level," Clewiston Tigers head coach Joseph Roth said. "I thought we ran the football really well. We're very pleased with the efforts all our guys put out there on the eld. It w as a great victory over a good football team." Clewiston overcame three turnovers on offense, including two lost fumbles from Robinson and an end-of- rst half interception by Clemmons. The Tigers also made some big stops on defense, including a crucial pass breakup by Richards with 7:29 left in the rst half. On fourth-and-1 from the Clewiston 3-yard line, Glades Day senior quarterback John Barr threw a fade pass to senior wideout Steven Williams, who seemed to be in prime position to cut Clewiston's lead to 13-6 at that point. But Richards covered Williams well enough to prevent the potential score, as Clewiston got the ball back after Glades Day's turnover on downs. "We didn't want to give up the big play," Roth said. "That was one thing we knew we needed to do if we were going to win this game." Glades Day's only score of the game occurred on a 2-yard run by junior running back Nigel Allen w ith 22 seconds left in the rst half, as the Gators cut Clewiston's lead to 13-7. Though Glades Day did play relatively tough throughout the game, it seemed as if they couldn't overcome the unavailability of junior running back Kelvin Taylor. The playmaker was ruled out of the game with a migraine headache, according to head coach Pete Walker. "We missed Kelvin, but we had our opportunities," Walker said. "We had our chances to score, but we just didn't get the job done." Notes: Clewiston and Glades Day left the game w ith 1-2 overall records each. Clewiston will be playing its rst District 6-4A game at home on Friday, Sept. 23 vs. Gateway Charter, while Glades Day will travel to Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturday, Sept. 24 for its rst District 7-2A game against Jupiter Christian. Clewiston posted its rst win against Glades Day since their epic 2008 matchup a 30-24 win at home. Glades Day came out on top in 2009 with a 39-0 home win and scored a 29-20 road win in Clewiston last season. Glades Central 41, American Heritage 34 (OT): In what was deemed by many in Palm Beach County as the most exciting game so far this season, Raiders junior running back Arron Baker's 10-yard touchdown run in overtime sealed the win for the state's No. 6 overall team. Down 34-27 late in the fourth quarter, Glades Central senior quarterback Tanner Redish (17-for26 passing, 241 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT) led his team down the eld and found junior triple-threat William Likely for a 9-yard touchdown. It gave Glades Central new life, as the road team effectively sent the game into an extra period. Raiders senior John Brockman ran back an interception return for a touchdown in the rst half, as his score played a part in Glades Central's 27-10 halftime lead over the Stallions in Delray Beach. But the Delray Beach-based team, who will be hosting fellow District 7-3A opponent Pahokee on Friday, Sept. 30, staged a furious secondhalf rally, led by junior running back Greg Bryant (202 rushing yards and two touchdowns; one in the third quarter) and senior quarterback Marcus Davis (rushing touchdown in the fourth). For the game, Redish threw two touchdown passes to Likely, one to Baker and another to Jaime Wilson three of those scores came in the rst half, with the exception of Likely's big play toward the end of regulation. The Raiders, now ranked No. 60 in the RivalsHigh100 national high school poll, will get a much-welcomed break as they enjoy a bye week after playing their rst three games in a span of 10 days. Glades Central, 3-0 overall, doesn't play again until Sept. 30, when the Muck's top overall team hosts Boca Raton. Atlantic 49, Pahokee 16: Pahokee Blue Devils sophomore playmaker Derry Brown scored on a 1-yard run to give his team an early 8-0 lead over the Atlantic Eagles. But the Delray Beach squad the only Palm Beach County team in recent memory to beat both Pahokee and Glades Central in the same calendar year scored 21 unanswered points to nish the rst quarter, including a 13yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback A.J. Puente (2 TD passes in the game) to wideout Adly Enoicy. Pahokee's other score came in the second quarter, courtesy of a 7-yard pass from Brown to senior wideout Shaquille White. The Blue Devils, who played their best game of the season thus far, went into halftime with a 21-16 de cit. But Atlantic scored the game's nal four touchdowns, including another Puente touchdown pass in the third quarter this time to senior receiver Chad Ward on a 48-yarder. It was Atlantic's rst win over Pahokee in their last three meetings Pahokee won at home in 2009 with a 13-6 win and came out on top again last season with a 13-12 road win. This year's game was played at Anquan Boldin Stadium on Friday, Sept. 16. Pahokee's next game is on Friday, Sept. 23 against Benjamin at home. Currently with a 0-3 overall record, the Blue Devils will try to win their rst District 7-3A game tomorrow night before traveling south to American Heritage (Delra y Beach). Pahokee will be a heavy underdog in next week's District 7-3A matchup with the Stallions, which makes tomorrow night's game a very important one to win. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 22, 2011 Glades DayContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / IBRAHIM ALAVA

Efrain was the more convivial one of the two, according to friends. He played the bass guitar in an amateur band, ‘Los In eles,’ and played with them on Friday for the inaugural dance at a local ballroom. The next day, he played at his brother’s wedding, and capped off the evening dancing with his mother. “He was a lovely person,” said Tomasa Rodarte, a friend of the family’s. “He was a friend to a lot of people. He was a happy young man.” Efrain worked for years as a farmworker, planting sugarcane by hand. His co-workers remember how, while doing this, he would sing to them, too. He recently got a more steady construction job, and looked forward to being employed the entire year. Most of all, he will be missed by residents of the small cluster of trailer homes on Canal Street in Belle Glade, where an energetic Efrain gathered his band and offered serenades to the people. Music owed from the poor area neighborhood. One of the men who played alongside Efrain was his father, Guadalupe, who handled the accordion. To him, Efrain was still a kid; the same lighthearted son who never took matters too seriously and followed his father everywhere. “He was my right-hand man,” said Guadalupe. “I’m just sad because he was always my little boy. I frequented him more. I took care of him more.” When he would arrive home from work to nd Efrain there, Efrain would ask jokingly: “Dad, what did you bring me this time? Is it a hat? What did you bring me?” Efrain might ask for $20, and Guadalupe smiles when he remembers that he never saw those $20 again. “He was like a little boy to me, always,” he said. Esteban was more serious. He had two daughters of his own, and a wife. He never liked to get in trouble, but he and his brother-in-law were inseparable. That morning before he left alone, Efrain overheard and decided to tag along. “I’ll go with you ‘cunado,’” he told Esteban.Moving OnAfter deputies broke the news, they handed the family a bag of personal possessions that had been recovered from the canal. The two men were wearing their wide-brimmed hats and watches. The bag contained a lighter and a small copper-plated chain. Funeral preparations were being made even before the family was allowed to identify the bodies. They said they would most likely see the bodies before burial, and lamented that their language barrier was making it dif cult to communicate with the sheriff’s of ce. “These are people of little resources, but they shouldn’t be treated badly,” said Tomasa, who helped the family to make phone calls to the lead investigator. They were told he was busy, or in a meeting, and their calls were not returned. For Susana, the heartbreak of losing two loved ones was to be challenged by the heartbreak of her children. Isabel, their oldest daughter, is seven years old; Isaura is three and Yaneli, the youngest, is just seven months old. Jose, their only son, is two. The children ask for their father. One of them thinks he might be in jail. Another runs out to the street in front of their home because the last thing her father said to her was, “I’ll be back, darling. I’m going to the store.” The three-year-old was especially close to her father. “He would always take her to the store, everywhere he went, and she goes outside because she’s waiting for him,” said Tomasa. And then sometimes, when the visit to the store seems too long to believe, the three-yearold wonders if he is okay. Susana cannot nd the strength to tell her the truth, and she tries to keep composure in front of her. “Yesterday, Isaura was asking me to take her to her daddy. She said he was in the hospital and he was very sick because he smoked.” FathersContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / JOSE ZARAGOZASusana and Guadalupe show a photo of Efrain’s children.

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.

Not only does conserving water and energy help reduce our imprint on the planet, it can also ease the burden on our wallets. “Many Americans now are nding new and innovative ways to save on water and energy costs in their homes without sacri cing the type of lifestyle they’re used to,” says Tom Moskitis, Executive Director of the Council for Responsible Energy. “Little changes can go a long way.” W ash Full LoadsWhen it comes to dishes and laundry, wait until you have a full load before running the appliance. And use cold water for laundry and air dry dishes when you can. Heat With Natural GasA gas water heater can heat water up to twice as fast as an electric one. And a natural gas water heater emits up to half the carbon emissions of an electric water heater. Go TanklessFor even more ef ciency, install a tankless water heater, which heats water on demand. A natural gas tankless water heater, near the point of use, eliminates energy loss caused by tank heaters that have unused water cooling in the tank. This can save hundreds of gallons of water over the course of a year. Plus, such tankless heaters last almost twice as long as tank water heaters. Take Low-Volume ShowersReplace your high-volume shower head with an aerated shower head, which uses a mix of water and air to produce a ow that feels strong but can save up to 60 percent of water compared to an average shower -reducing both your water and energy use. Avoid the “Phantom Load” Appliances such as your TV, DVD player, cell phone charger, computer and other gadgets consume energy just by being plugged in. Unplug them when not in use. If that’s too cumbersome, plug them into a powerstrip that you can turn on and off with just one ick of a switch. Fix LeaksFrom dripping faucets to drafty doors and windows, leaks can be a major source of energy and water waste. Being a responsible homeowner or tenant and attending to those annoying home improvements can signi cantly reduce your monthly water and energy bills. Tips to Save Water and Energy at Home

Thanks to the volunteers who came out to show their appreciation for our wonderful teaching staff. Hopes previous economic development experience will transfer to GladesBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunLORE’s new executive director likes to take the stance of an army man. “I de ne the objective: should we take the hill or take the mountain?” said Dan Murphy, whose new role is as executive director of the Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance of Palm Beach County. Among other enterprises, his role will see him helping to direct the discussion of issues in the Glades. But even as he hunkers down to learn the area and acclimate himself to the needs of the community, he is sure in his responses, and what that next step should be. “In this case, it’s to create jobs,” he said. Without a doubt, he said, the Glades area is in real need of economic stimulus, with some pockets of the tri-cities with levels of unemployment as high as 40 percent. The real job is to identify those avenues to success. Part of that effort will be on evolving a strategic economic development plan with the help of the three Glades cities of Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee, and county and federal partners. LORE members, understanding the importance of the efforts, selected Mr. Murphy as their top choice. He has been on the job for four weeks now.The right tMurphy’s real expertise has been in marketing and economic development. His career has taken him all over the world, from Argentina, to Hong Kong, Europe and Mexico. If he has anything new to offer the area, it may well end up being a new view. “I have a perspective that I think can help, broader than the average perspective,” he said. “I may help the Glades change its paradigm and thinking.” Murphy is able to relate his time in Argentina in the 1970s, when as a senior executive with a public relations rm he walked into a country where the military junta had taken power. His rm dealt with confronting the issues of looming bankruptcy in that region, blackouts and brownouts and a series of economic challenges. The rm managed to bring more than $14 billion in investments, pushed to privatize the oil sector, and secure investors for the construction of hydroelectric dams. It is the type of turnaround one might hope for in the Glades area. Murphy is a self-described solutions seeker, so after a recent LORE meeting, he expressed concern with the lack of solutions. The Glades Utility Authority director had been on-hand to discuss the agency’s waning fortunes, and the real possibility that its scal insolvency may threaten its presence in the Glades. Murphy wondered when the speaker was presenting his plan for addressing the issues, but that did not happen. “It was a little disturbing last week that the water authority didn’t produce any real solution. It allowed to perpetuate itself for another month,” he said. But water is just one issue out of many in the Glades, and Murphy will get his chance to participate in the discussions on the pressing problems plaguing the area. One thing the water authority director mentioned was his desire to see economic development occur – which could only positively impact the cost of providing water to such a small, economically depressed area, if that cost can be spread to others. If Mr. Murphy has his way, then that just might happen. In Highlands County, Murphy assumed the chief role of economic development, pushing projects like enterprise zones – areas where developing businesses earn bene ts through reduction in taxes, or subsidies. One barrier locally, he explained, is that the land use of the area is heavily steered toward agriculture. According to Murphy, the total area that is open to development is approximately 1,000 acres, roughly. In order to be put into use as industrial parks, the area would need large investments in infrastructure. He can help to ensure that the land is “developed fast and well” but needs to foment the kind of support that could make such a project a reality. But he assures that he isn’t here solely for the purpose of economic development. Palm Beach County has a robust economic development department already, he assured, but perhaps his presence in the Glades might help to encourage a tight partnership with the county. Another focus of Mr. Murphy’s is to work with the right, key people to develop the local workforce through training programs. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Mr. Murphy hopes he might be able to zero in on entrepreneurship. The role of an economic development director isn’t to go out and catch the big sh, but to nd more success in building an area’s own potential through targeted programs that reach out to small businesses. Murphy lives in Miami Beach, with his wife, and will be making the commute each day to his of ce at the Workforce Alliance building in Belle Glade. He has two sons, both grown. He is nding himself in warm being welcomed to the community by warm embraces, literally. “What I’ve seen has been positive. There are always hugs at these meetings,” said Murphy, who’s more used to the dog-eat-dog world of places like Miami. “If someone hugs you there, you’re watching your wallet,” he said.
