With iron-shaped burn on leg, woman does not ‘recall’BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunIt was a strange scene. Palm Beach County deputies responding to an aggravated assault call in Pahokee saw a woman’s leg burned by an iron, and even noted bits of skin tissue that were fused onto the heated part of the appliance. But when they asked her what happened, the woman said she could not recall, even though she had been the one to call them in the rst place. At issue: she didn’t want the man to be arrested. The incident happened November 11, at approximately 2:45 a.m. in a home on McClure Road in Pahokee. Deputies responding to the incident wrote in their report that the victim just wanted her boyfriend, Andre Dent, 26, “out of the house,” but did not want him to go to jail. She initially described her injuries, saying that Andre had arrived home drunk and when he did, plugged an ion into an outlet and then held it against her thigh, burning her leg. The burn she showed was approximately 4x6 inches. When the deputy who would head up the investigation arrived, she recanted her 0% IS BACK!!!!BUY A NEW 2011 F150 AND GET 0% APR FINANCING THROUGH FORD CREDIT FOR UP TO 60 MONTHS.**With approved credit.

With both teams locked in to compete in this year’s Class 5A playoffs, the formula was really simple. The winner of this game would become the District 14-5A champions and the loser would be the runner-up. Suf ce to say, the Raiders played their most complete game to date as they blew out the Tigers, 70-7, to take the district crown. It took less than ve minutes in the rst quarter for Glades Central (9-0 overall; 4-0 in District 14-5A play) to put up points on the scoreboard, as Raiders senior quarterback Tanner Redish (8-for-10 passing, 152 yards, 3 TD) found fellow senior Jaime Wilson for a 10-yard touchdown pass to open the scoring at 7-0. Followed by a three-and-out from Boynton Beach’s offense, the Tigers fumbled a snap off a punt attempt, as Glades Central senior Dominique Gibson recovered it in Boynton’s end zone to give the Raiders a 14-0 lead with 6:13 left in the rst frame.

Since 1997, the Alternative Water Supply Funding Program, in cooperation with the State of Florida, has invested $185.5 million into 468 alternative water supply projects. To date, these projects have created 398 million gallons a day of water supply capacity, reducing reliance on freshwater sources. Alternative water sources diversify South Florida’s water supply while reducing the region’s dependence on traditional freshwater resources and making communities less susceptible to drought impacts. Examples of alternative water supply include: Saltwater and brackish water Reclaimed water Surface water captured during wet weather Sources made available through new storage Stormwater (for consumptive use) Other nontraditional sources Development of alternative water supplies is an important component of the District’s four regional water supply plans, which encompass the agency’s jurisdictional area. Updated every ve years, each plan creates a framework for future water use decisions and identi es strategies to meet future water demands of urban and agricultural uses, while meeting the needs of the environment.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Veterans’ Day: Those Who Deserve Our ThanksBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchNov. 11 is Veteran’s Day. Some churches celebrate the day in remembrance of Saint Martin of Tours. He lived in the fourth century among the poor, rural people in Eastern France. His father was a Roman military of cer and, as expected, Martin w as to follow in his footsteps. During one particularly cold night, a beggar approached Martin and in the midst of the freezing w eather, Martin cut his military cloak in two to share it with the man who had none. Little by little, he began to see another way, leading to the Christian faith and his ministry. His background has made him a prototype for military chaplaincies and he is regarded as many as their patron saint. There were those who felt he might not be suited for ministry, being too “rough and tumble,” and not dressing in the nest clothes of the day. He was instead a “man of the people he served,” and did not put on airs. That’s been my experience with chaplains; spending time where “the rubber meets the road,” and not avoiding hardships. That’s the experience of our veterans, too. W hether by choice or by call to duty, their lives have been confrontations with the most dif cult situations humanity can in ict. I share with all of those families who have been affected by the ravages of war, and who hope for peace. During the Vietnam era, I spent time with a retired Marine Corps General who had a distinguished career in the Paci c and in the Mideast. We’d talk about his experiences and the hope for peace. One day he told me that nobody was more interested in seeing peace than he was; adding “I’ve seen what war can do!” Underlying it all was a realization of the necessity for defense of liberties and freedom; with a willingness to make sacri ces in the name of, and hope for, good among all of the evils to be faced. Our Lord had an encounter with a Roman legionnaire; a centurion who came to Him and asked healing for his servant. (Matthew 8:5ff). The centurion recognized that he doesn’t deserve for Jesus even to enter his home, for he is under the authority of someone else. Orders are orders but there is that servant whom he cares about, and, in spite of it all, he is a man who can be merciful, caring, loving. The Lord saw faith; the centurion’s prayer was granted. Out of the crucible of being an adversary, of living in a very dif cult world of troubles and wars, there is still faith, hope, love. The Lord commented that He had not seen such great faith, and those who know hard times can be the exemplars of faith to those who have not shared their pains. We can, and should honor those who have served us. Their lives have something to teach us all. May we see what the Lord saw, may we be inspired by their often-silent witness and thankful for what they give us. They Gave Their Yesterdays For Our TodaysBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchOn November 11, we honor those men and women who have served in our armed forces. When we re ect on the honor and heroism of our soldiers, we are confronted with the sacrices they made, as well as our response to those sacri ces. The whole concept of anyone making sacrices for us, much less being willing to die for us, sometimes makes us uneasy. Confronting their heroism forces us to stop and examine our own lives. Why did they do what they did? What cause is worth dying for? Would we be willing to do the same? Celebrities are people who make news, heroes are people who make history. The qualities of heroism are eternal: self-sacri ce, courage, honor, duty. A man who served in the Navy during World War II shared that one night he was running his transport across the Atlantic when he noticed the white trail of a torpedo coming toward him. His ship was lled with hundreds of soldiers, and the potential loss of life would have been devastating. Nearby, a smaller ship had also seen the torpedo coming. The captain of the smaller vessel maneuvered his ship between the transport and the torpedo. The explosion destroyed his ship, killing all those on board. The man who told this story ended it by saying, “The skipper of that other ship was my best friend.” Slowly, he remarked, “You know, there is a verse in the Bible which has special meaning for me now. It is this: ‘Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’” What kind of love would give itself up for another? What kind of love would be willing to die for you and me? It’s the love that Jesus demonstrated to sho w us how much we mean to God. It’s the love we celebrate today in the example of soldiers who sacri ced and sometimes even died for our freedom. In India there is a cemetery where the bodies of American soldiers are buried. Over the entrance to the cemetery are these words: “Tell Them We Gave Our Todays for Their Tomorrows.” Let us never forget that our todays were bought with a price. Someone had to pay with their service and sometimes with their lives yesterday, so we might be free today. To all of our veterans: A national holiday is hardl y enough to sho w you our gratitude and respect. There is no way we can suf ciently say, “Thank you.” We can’t undo anything you’ve been through, but we can do what the Bible tells us to do – pra y for you and love you and honor your sacri ces.The Occupy Wall Street MobBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchThere seems to be a pathetic mentality that is driving mobs all over the world. The “something for nothing” mobs are increasing in number and activity. The Bible teaches a man should earn his bread by the sweat of his brow and that a man who refuses to work should not eat. But these mobs want to ignore such teaching and seem to think that the world owes them a living. I recently received by e-mail these ve great sentences. 1.You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity. 2.What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3.The government cannot give to anybody, anything that the government does not rst take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other hal f is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what the y work for, that is the beginning of the end of an y nation. Now understand this. All great democracies have committed suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason? The voters gured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them. The United States of cially became a Republic in 1776, 235 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. If we don’t change this trend it will spell the end of the United States as we know it. RELIGION COLUMNS Rev. Sam S. Thomas Pastor John Hicks “Out of the crucible of being an adversary, of living in a very dif cult world of troubles and wars, there is still faith, hope and love.”-Rev. Sam S.

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.37/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 57.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 2.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has not moved during the last month and stands 57.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average is just one penny away from being the lowest we’ve seen since the start of March, even as crude oil prices have risen,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “Just in the last week, wholesale prices have moved 13 cents per gallon between the high and low, so it does remain surprising that average prices have moved very little,” DeHaan added.

According to the FBI, Americans currently lose approximately $40 billion annually to nancial investment fraud. Most Americans rely solely on the government and their banks to enforce investor safety, but many experts caution this isn’t enough and that people need to get actively involved in protecting themselves. Even with strengthened nancial protection laws in place, the ability for the government to police the scope of undue pro teering and theft is limited. “Rather than being victimized rst and seeking recourse later, protect your nest egg now,” says Pat Huddleston, author “The Vigilant Investor: A Former SEC Enforcer Reveals How to Fraud-Proof Your Investments,” published by AMACOM Books. “Vigilance means acknowledging that anyone is vulnerable to being tricked, regardless of education, intelligence, and experience.” You may think you can spot a scam a mile away, but the best ones don’t look like scams or sound completely trustworthy. Experienced fraudsters typically provide their victims with credible looking proof of returns. Some scams will go so far as to employ fullystaffed phone banks and websites. Every investor should be on the alert for red ags like these, says Huddleston, who is also CEO of Investor’s Watchdog, a group that conducts fraud investigations. Name-dropping. Scam artists often wield the power of their supposed celebrity clients to impress the gullible. The takeaway pitch. “Available for a limited time only!” This scammer’s ploy of taking away your opportunity taps into the natural human aversion to loss. Living extra-large. If your investment adviser spends money like a trust fund baby on a weekend shopping bender, he is spending your money, not his own. Evading transparency. If the adviser resists your requests for transparency, take your money and run. Vague credentials. Verify your investment salesperson’s background independently using resources like the National Student Clearinghouse. An appeal to faith. Fraud aimed at religious groups is so virulent and effective that the only safe course is to say no even to a subtle appeal to your faith. Be especially on guard if you have elderly parents. Those aged 60 years or older are disproportionately targeted. More tips on protecting your nest egg from unscrupulous fraudsters can be found in Huddleston’s book and by visiting www.thevigilantinvestor.com. By treating every investment opportunity with healthy skepticism and objectivity, you can help protect your family’s future. How To Protect Yourself From Financial Scams

Public health and tourism industry at stakeBY CRIS COSTELLO e Sierra ClubThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s thumbs up today for Florida’s polluter-friendly w ater quality rules is a loss for families who deserve clean water. Today, the EPA sent a letter (here) to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announcing its preliminary approval of draft state regulations on sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution. This preliminary approval is being given by the EPA without that agency’s having reviewed the technical comments provided by Florida’s w ater quality advocates. Rudy Scheffer, Sierra Club Florida Steering Committee Chair, said “The Florida DEP proposed rule won’t prevent the outbreaks of toxic green slime that currently plague the state, killing sh, fouling drinking water, closing swimming areas, and causing illness in people and livestock. It will leave us right where we are now: waiting until it is too costly and too late to protect our families and our jobs from sick water.” “EPA caved to congressional pressure to put polluter interests above those of the Florida public. Who will be the losers? Local waterfront communities, homeowners with sinking property v alues, and everyone who shes, swims, boats or drinks water in the state” said Frank Jackalone, Florida Staff Director of the Sierra Club. The FDEP proposed rule takes all the pressure of the state’s biggest industrial polluters and instead places it on taxpayers and local governments; it also gives the state legislature complete control over the future of Florida’s water resources, including the ability to defund the implementation and enforcement of the rule. The state’s Environmental Regulation Commission will hear a presentation on the DEP’s draft rule at a meeting in Tallahassee tomorrow. If the ERC signs off on the draft rule, it goes before the Florida Legislature in the 2012 session. The EPA will then have the opportunity to approve or deny the state’s nal rule. Earthjustice led suit to compel the EPA to set limits on sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution in 2008 in the Northern District of Florida on behalf of the Florida Wildlife Federation, the Sierra Club, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida, and St. John’s Riverkeeper. Slimed Florida waterways devastate waterfront property values. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 COME ONE, COME ALL Put a Face to the name BBQMEET & GREETRAY VAN HOUTENFor Sheriff of Hendry CountyDate: November 12, 2011 Time: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.Place: Barron Park, LaBelle Grand Prize Drawing & Other PrizesFace painting, games Fun for children of all ages!See you there!!!Paid Political advertisement paid for and approved by Ray Van Houten, Republican for Hendry County Sheriff 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Federal And State Regulators Buckle Under Polluter Pressure SUBMITTED PHOTOFlorida waterway in 2005.

As a result of three uncommon storms in one month, nearly 10 inches of rain was recorded District-wide for October, representing 6.2 inches above the average for this time of year. All areas from Orlando to the Florida Keys received above-average rainfall, with key regions such as the Kissimmee basins and Water Conserv ation Areas 2 and 3 receiving a much-needed boost. In comparison, October 2005 saw a total of 7.98 inches of rain — including Hurricane Wilma. The storm left an average of 4.16 inches of rain across the District. October’s storms did signi cantly bene t Lake Okeechobee, a key backup water supply for millions of South Floridians. The lake stood at 13.60 feet NGVD on Wednesday, close to the same level as this time last year. Unlike last year, the lake is rising instead of falling. The current level is more than 2 feet higher than on September 30 but still below the historical average of 15.03 inches. “The decisions we make every day in water management consider the potential for weather that can swerve from record dry to record deluge in a relatively short timeframe,” said Susan Sylv ester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Our challenge is to continually plan, adjust and operate the extensive South Florida system to best balance the needs of 7.7 million people, businesses and the natural system.” October is a crucial transition from the wet season to the dry season because of its potential impact on regional water levels for months to come. October 2011 was de ned by three exceptional storm events that signi cantly bolstered water levels in drought-plagued Lake Okeechobee, aquifers and storage areas across the region. The storms included: Oct. 8: This was the wettest single day in the upper and lower Kissimmee basins combined in nearly 100 years. An average of 6.05 inches of rain fell in the two basins, spanning approximately 3,000 square miles, with local maximums up to 14.09 inches. The Kissimmee River was closed to navigation for about two weeks because of dangerous water ows. Navigation was restored when conditions became safe again. Oct. 16 18: A non-tropical low pressure system and a stalled front combined to leave South Florida with an average of 2.74 inches of rain across the District. The rain primarily fell south of Lake Okeechobee, mainly missing the already drenched Kissimmee region. The lower Florida Keys saw a maximum of 21.97 inches. Oct. 28 31: Hurricane Rina reached the Yucatan Peninsula before several elements, including wind shear and cooler water temperatures, combined to weaken the storm and rip it apart. Remnant energy and moisture helped drench South Florida, with an average of 3.7 inches o f rain over four days. Some areas in Broward and Miami-Dade counties reported more than 12 inches of torrential rain, and localized ooding was reported. Despite the October storms, a forecast of below-average rainfall for the 2011-2012 dry season is cause for caution and continued water conservation. The region may still face water shortage conditions in the spring as a result.

According to information on the A udubon web site, the Eastern breeding population is found along the Atlantic Coast from North Carolina south to Central Florida. Their migration usually occurs from April to May and then from September to October. Eastern Painted Bunting winter in South Florida and possibly the Bahamas, Antilles, Central America, and Cuba. This small, uncommon songbird is currently being reported returning to its wintering grounds in South Florida. The western population stretches from Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and into Northern Mexico. The western population winter in Southern Mexico and Central America. The male Painted Bunting has a blue head and nape and shiny green back. Its rump, throat, chest, anks, belly, undertail coverts and eye ring are red. The wings and tail are dark gray. Adult females have a bright olive-green crown, nape and back. The throat, chest and belly are y ellow-green. There might be some blue feathers showing on the head. The rst-year male and female are similar in color to the adult female. Their song is a sweet, high-pitched thin, warbling sound. Calls are a soft rising "chip." This secretive bird is often dif cult to see as it will hide in dense foliage even when singing from a high perch. Male Painted Buntings will ght with each other while defending their territory. Painted Buntings will forage on the ground or in low brush searching for seeds, spiders, insects and caterpillars. In the winter, they are often seen at feeders in Southern Florida. In the Northeastern corner of Florida they are common breeders who will raise two to three brood from May to mid July. The female lays three or four gray-white egg spotted with brown in a nest that is an open woven cup of grass, leaves roots and animal hair. The eggs are incubated for 11-13 days with the young leaving the nest at approximately two weeks after hatching. This species is in decline and is "near threatened" possibly because of changes in the landscape, cowbird parasitism, and trapping for the pet trade.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Trio of New Businesses Offer Pahokee PromiseWe learn so much from our parents and others in our lives and sometimes wonder if all that knowledge will ever be used. In today’s economy, many small and some large businesses are struggling to survive until better times; a life-lesson my parents learned during the Great Depression that they passed on to me and my siblings comes in very handy. I remember how they related to us the reality their small towns were faced with and how they survived the bad economic times. I suppose you could call it “circle the wagons” or “help thy neighbor,” but the very simple yet hard thing they had to do was simply shop at home. They realized that every penny spent in another city was another blow to a local business that did not need to happen. Here in my amazing home town of Pahokee we are truly suffering as many pennies and dollars are spent elsewhere. One would not think that going to “the coast” to shop would cause economic devastation here, but all you have to do is count the number of businesses that have closed in Pahokee since S.R. 80 was completed many years ago. Here in Pahokee, that number was more than 60. Now that our hospital, Bryant Sugar House, and even our hardware store have closed, we are in deep trouble and Pahokee needs our help. There is a glimmer of hope right here in downtown Pahokee though. Now that city hall and property owners have leveled four ugly, unsafe buildings that reminded us on a daily basis of what bad times look like here, there have appeared in their stead wide open, airy, sun-drenched spaces. No more rotting skyline for us. This new-found brightness is sure to help continue the growth of a new “economic corridor” developing on Main Street between. We have no less then seven new small businesses within a four-block area joining the others that are struggling to survive. Granted, these are not fancy, glittery buildings like we see on “the coast,” but they are open and in use in a downtown that was nearly empty a year ago. Working with these new businesses now that I am retired and sharing my expertise with anyone who wants it, I am so excited to see three young people who have placed their trust in the hearts and pocketbooks of the people of Pahokee. Their goal is to see their dreams blossom. While investing in a town that could be described as an “economic ghost town,” these young merchants’ determination, hard work, and ethical behavior should be admired as an example to others. I will showcase three of these new businesses this time. They are: Tuff Kutz (a barber shop), Concrete Jungle (a clothing store), and Patty’s (a cell phone store). Calling Tuff Kutz (185 E. Main St.)a “barber shop” is like calling the Titanic a rowboat. The owner, Val Flores is not only a local young man (born in Belle Glade), but he is an artist on many levels. If you have seen the many children sporting their unique cuts, chances are their cuts and smiles were the work of Val. He seems at times like the “Energizer Bunny” of haircuts because his shop is never empty and just watching him work is enough to make this old man tired. Val was in training at Glades Ford as a mechanic when the company closed and he decided he needed to use his artistic talents by opening his shop. He plans to someday buy a home here in Pahokee and relocate Tuff Kutz to a more modern facility. The next spotlighted business is Concrete Jungle. Concrete Jungle (185 E. Main St.) is much more than a mere clothing store. When Herb and his wife Ja’vonda decided they wanted to open a business, they chose Pahokee because “Pahokee needs more small businesses to help create jobs and resources to help the community build.” They work very hard in their small shop to bring the latest styles and brands to The Glades. Why bother wasting gas to shop on “the coast” when you can nd it right here in Pahokee? They plan on growing and being here in Pahokee for many years. They carry shoes, clothes, accessories, and much more offered up with a smile and a handshake. One more small business of note is Patty’s Fashion Sports (159 E. Main St.). Patty came to Pahokee 21 years ago from her native Mexico looking for that dream. Many of us remember her working long hours at several local businesses as she saved money to start her own business. Here is another smilelled location and once you step inside, you want to just browse. Besides being an agent for Boost and Virgin Mobile, she is also an Avon rep and carries just a little bit of everything (and that part reminds me a bit of the old Royal’s stores). She decided to open this business because she, as well as Val and Herb and J’vonda, noticed that Pahokee needed what she has to offer. I have come to think of her as a “convenience store” for everything but food and beer. If you can’t nd it elsewhere, check out Patty’s; she just might have it. All of these businesses are here because we need them. If we don’t learn anything else from this economic slump, let it be that we need to draw upon our community strengths and patronize every one of them. Every cent we spend “on the coast” never makes it back to Pahokee. We need to help ourselves by helping our businesses stay healthy. Next time you even think of going to “the coast” for something, just think about the gas money you waste getting there and remember your local businesses because they are here for you. Besides, what glory is there in saying you bought it “on the coast” when you could have bought the same thing here in The Glades while giving back to your community?Larry Wright LETTER TO THE EDITOR ARCHIVED PHOTOCyclists ready-up for the start of last year’s Loop. Event to be held February 25BY JUAN LOPEZ e SunIt’s that time once again for cycling enthusiasts as the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County opens registration for it’s second annual Loop the Lake event. Expectations are high that this year’s event, which will take place on February 25, will raise more funds for literacy and have more involvement. Last year, the event was able to raise $25,000. It is the hope of event organizers that they will not reach that total but surpass it. A total of 214 cyclists participated in last year’s Loop, with 36 being able to complete the full circuit. Honorary Chairman Dolly Hand was present to hand out medals to all participants. Darlene Kostraub, Director of Literacy in the Glades, is excited to see what is in store for the second event ever. “We are expecting a greater turnout, with new participants coming along with last year’s entries,” she said. “This is going to have a great effect on the Glades this time around.” She continued to say that registration has just opened up for the event and they have had several commitments from returning cyclists, including Steve Leveen, who has been a strong advocate for literacy in the Glades for years. Another participant that Kostraub pointed out was Kenny Lutz, an English teacher for Glades Central High School, is an active member of the Literacy board and avid cyclist who will taking part in this year’s Loop. This year’s Loop will feature: -15 mile “Sonnet” ride: The 15-mile Sonnet Ride begins at Torry Island and continues to John Stretch Park, where riders will loop around and return to Torry Island. This is a relaxing, fun ride that is appropriate for beginners. -31 mile “Short Story” ride: The 31-mile Short Story Ride begins at Torry Island, with a stop at John Stretch Park. At the Army Corps HQ, riders will loop around and return to Torry Island. This is a route for beginners who want to challenge themselves a bit. -45 mile “Novel” ride: The 45-mile Novel Ride begins at Torry Island, with stops at John Stretch Park and the Army Corps HQ. At Uncle Joe’s Motel & Campground, riders will loop around and return to Torry Island. This route is for intermediate cyclists and weekend warriors. These riders should have faster road bikes or cross-over bikes. -115 mile “Epic” ride: The 115-mile Epic Ride is a full loop of Lake Okeechobee, with stops at John Stretch Park, the Army Corps HQ, Uncle Joe’s Motel & Campground, Lakeport, Okeechobee, Port Mayaca and the Pahokee Outpost. The ride will end at Torry Island. This route is for experienced cyclists only, those who regularly ride 100 miles per week and are able to spend all day on their bikes, the majority of the time on the road with car and truck traf c. These expert cyclists will be riding welltted road bikes in good maintenance or time-trial, tri-bikes, and are comfortable drafting and riding in pelotons. Although support vehicles will be available, FullLoop riders are expected to be self-suf cient in terms of water, food, at repair and basic cycling maintenance. When on the road, Epic Full-Loop riders should respect and abide by all traf c rules. Loop the Lake for Literacy bene ts the programs that the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County conducts throughout the area. Their purpose is to provide families with the literacy skills so that they can be successful. If you would to take part in this year’s Loop or would like to volunteer, call the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County at 800-273-1030 or visit www.loopthelakeforliteracy.org.

Glades Central senior J onathan Brockman scooped up the fumbled ball at the Tigers 5-yard line and subsequently took it to the house to give his Raiders a 21-0 lead with 5:58 left in the rst. After yet another three-and-out for Boynton Beach, Glades Central used up a 7-play, 50-yard drive to score again, as Gibson ran a 5-yarder to the end zone for a Raiders 28-0 lead with 1:50 left in the rst quarter. The only time Boynton Beach scored was w hen Tigers fullback Audrey Dieujuste scored on a 3-yard rushing touchdown with 11:42 in the rst half, cutting Glades Central's lead to 28-7. "Glades Central is a very talented team, so w e knew it was going to be a challenge," Boynton Beach head coach Rick Swain said. "Our game plan was to simply play the best we can to our abilities and see what would happen from there." Glades Central's ferocious defense limited Boynton Beach's entire offense to just 77 total y ards in the game. Boynton Beach quarterback J ake Lutzen (1-for-6, 17 yards, 1 INT) suffered an injury to his throwing arm, according to a few individuals af liated with the Tigers football program. "We couldn't throw the ball much," Boynton Beach sophomore receiver Darrian Josey said. Glades Central senior defensive back Isaiah Rodriguez caught his second interception of the season from Lutzen an errant throw from the Boynton Beach 17-yard line on a third-and-13 play w ith 5:41 left in the rst half. Rodriguez's pick for a 42-yard touchdown was nulli ed due to a holding penalty on the Raiders. Despite that, he was ecstatic he had a chance to contribute to Glades Central's huge win. "It's homecoming and everybody was making plays out there," Rodriguez said. "I just wanted to help my team get in on the action." Glades Central junior running back Arron Baker put the team on his back for much of the second and third quarters, as he scored all three of his rushing touchdowns in that span, including a 16-yard burst into the end zone for a 55-7 lead the Raiders would take into halftime. Redish's other touchdown passes were thrown to Will Likely a 54-yarder with 8:58 left in the second and to Wilson again, a 25-yard connection with 6:40 left in the rst half. Meanwhile, Boynton Beach lost four total fumbles, including a 75-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Jonathan Whitest that capped the game's scoring. "We just made a lot of mental mistakes," Josey said. "You can't do that against a great team like Glades Central. They're very athletic and they will capitalize on your mistakes. That's exactly what happened out there." Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon was thoroughly pleased with what he saw from his players in their homecoming game. "It feels good to win the district," Blackmon said. "We tried to work on all three phases of the game offense, defense and special teams. All that showed tonight on the eld. When everybody is doing their jobs, we roll out like a netuned engine." Notes: Glades Central (No. 43 overall in the latest RivalsHigh100 national high school football rankings; No. 6 in the latest Flavarsity.com statewide all-classi cation high school football rankings) will play its nal regular season game at home against the Pahokee Blue Devils (2-7 overall) in the Muck Bowl tomorrow night. In what's widely expected to be an embarrassing blowout at Ef e C. Grear Field in Belle Glade, Pahokee will do whatever it takes to shock the area with an upset. The cross-town program seeks to end its season on a high note and avenge last year's 58-0 loss. One thing's for certain: Kickoff time is set for 6 p.m. on Nov. 11. Glades Day 49, Zion Lutheran 12: Glades Day (6-3 overall; 6-0 in District 7-2A play) sent its seniors out in grand style as the Gators, led by Kevin Taylor's 203 yards and four rushing touchdowns, blew out Zion Lutheran at home on Nov. 4. In addition, Glades Day senior Will Zipperer scored a rushing touchdown off a 99-yard run to energize the Glades Day faithful at Gator Field. Taylor, meanwhile, now has racked up 8,587 career rushing yards, which puts him just 217 behind Emmitt Smith (8,804 yards) for the FHSAA state rushing record. The junior sensation can break the record tomorrow night in Glades Day's regular season nale against South Fork. Kickoff time for Glades Day's road game is set for 7 p.m. on Nov. 11.

BY JUDY SANCHEZ U.S. SugarIn an agreement signed this week, U.S. Sugar Corp. and A. Duda and Sons, Inc. formalized plans for a strategic business alliance structured around the core strengths of each company. U.S. Sugar, one of the nation’s largest fully integrated producers of sugar cane and re ned cane sugar, will acquire DUDA’s sugar cane production business in Palm Beach County, which will include DUDA’s ownership interest in the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida. Under the agreement, family-owned DUDA, a diversi ed land company with agricultural and real estate operations across the country, will have access to land owned by U.S. Sugar to develop and expand its east coast vegetable operations in Belle Glade, Florida, which will include expansion of the company’s organic celery crop. “The acquisition of DUDA’s Palm Beach County sugar cane production is in keeping with our long term strategy to be the most productive and ef cient sugar business,” said U.S. Sugar President and CEO Robert H. Buker, Jr. “We believe this acquisition is a good, long-term investment for our company and for our shareholders.” “U.S. Sugar intends to ful ll all the cane obligations to area mills and all the other obligations of DUDA’s Belle Glade sugar cane operations just as DUDA did, and we plan to bring all the employees currently working in DUDA’s Belle Glade sugarcane operation into our employee group,” said Buker. The Duda family has a long and rich history farming here in the Glades and throughout the United States,” Buker said. “We look forward to working and farming with the DUDA organization.” David Duda, President and CEO of DUDA, said, “This transaction allows DUDA to grow its east coast vegetable operations and take advantage of opportunities in other areas of our business, including the expansion of our diversi ed agricultural operations and real estate holdings across the country.” DUDA will continue sugar cane production in Glades County, Florida, as well as in south Texas. The terms of the agreement, which will proceed to due diligence, were not disclosed. The two companies have enjoyed a 40-year history of cooperative business activities, including sugar cane harvest and milling agreements, joint land use and lease agreements and making cooperative xed land improvements. “U.S. Sugar is a quality grower and producer and is a strong business partner,” said Duda. “This is a win-win deal for both companies, allowing each of us to grow, prosper and concentrate on our competitive strengths over the long term.” U.S. Sugar Corporation is one of the country’s largest privately held agricultural rms. The Company farms 180,000 acres of the most productive farmland in the United States. In 2008, its newly consolidated and automated milling and re ning facility at Clewiston became the world’s largest vertically integrated sugar cane milling and re ning operation -capable of processing 38,000--42,000 tons of sugarcane per day and producing ~750,000 tons of re ned sugar per year. In addition to sugar and citrus farming and processing, the Company also owns a short-line railroad – the South Central Florida Express. A. Duda & Sons, Inc. is a Florida-based company with additional operations in California, Texas, Arizona, Georgia and Michigan. A diversi ed land company, DUDA is engaged in a variety of agricultural and real estate operations including fresh and fresh-cut vegetables, citrus, sod, sugar cane, cattle, community development, realty and home construction. Land assets include agricultural lands and a variety of commercial properties. The family-owned and -operated company, headquartered in Oviedo, Florida, is in its fourth generation of family leadership.

And another way of saying We Believe In You 17 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 BY STATEPOINTSleep is vital for children’s overall health and development. That’s why it’s important that children develop good sleep habits, right from the start. “Parents of infants need to know how to help their baby safely fall asleep,” says Robert W. Block, MD, FAAP, of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “And older children will bene t from an environment that helps them get enough sleep.” Here are some tips for safe and adequate sleep from the experts at the AAP: Safer Sleep Babies up to one year of age should always be placed on their backs on a rm surface to sleep. This will reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, which is the leading cause of death in the United States for babies between one month and one year old. “While we don’t know what causes SIDS, we have learned how parents can dramatically lower the risks,” says Dr. Block. Make sure the crib, bassinet or play yard meets current safety standards and hasn’t been recalled. And make sure to keep all objects -including soft toys, blankets and crib bumpers -out of the crib, as they can increase the risk of suffocation or strangulation. Consider using a sleeper instead of blankets, and make sure the baby’s head remains uncovered. The crib can be in the same room as you sleep, but do not place the baby in the same bed as you. Also, keep the baby away from smoke and smokers. Warm, Not Hot Keep the room where your baby sleeps at a comfortable temperature. In general, dress your baby in no more than one extra layer than you would wear. Your baby may be too hot if she is sweating or if her chest feels hot. You may offer a paci er, which can help reduce the risk of SIDS. However, other products like wedges, positioners, special mattresses and specialized sleep surfaces have not been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS. If you are breastfeeding, wait until breastfeeding is going well before offering a paci er, usually around three to four weeks. Children should be taken out of a crib by the time they are 35 inches tall. Establish Routines If your child or teen seems to be having trouble sleeping, try altering the environment or establishing a routine. For example, see if your child sleeps better in a dark room or with a night light. Do not allow a TV in your child’s bedroom, and make sure he or she doesn’t watch or read anything upsetting or scary within two hours of bedtime. Instead, a bath, warm drink or story time will help a child unwind. For more tips to help your young one get a good night’s sleep, visit the AAP’s website for parents, www. healthychildren.org. If sleeping problems persist, consult your pediatrician. Even sleepers with the toughest problems can learn good habits. Sleep Tips for Children and Infants

The following new units began on Monday, Nov. 7: Kindergarten through second grades will begin delving into characters while third, fourth, and fth grades will begin mining non ction. The units of study are based on Teacher’s College curriculum guides and teacher resources in the Lucy Calkins readers’ series. The character studies help students dig deeper into how the character acts, thinks and feels and what their motivation is. The students learn to tap their prior knowledge, make movies in their minds, look for patterns to enhance predictions, and understand the viewpoints, motivations and interactions of different characters. This series goes hand-in-hand with the Lucy Calkins Writing “Small Moments” unit which teaches students to “zoom in” and write about their own lives and special times with friends and family. The non ction study unit for the higher grades will be focusing on main idea, cause and effect, context clues, building vocabulary, sequence of events, understanding bulleted lists, boxed texts and diagrams, drawing inferences, text features, as well as examining, comparing and contrasting different non ction writing. This unit compliments the Lucy Calkins “All About Series” which teaches students to research and write about the non ction topic of their choice. Monday will begin with introduction of the expanded non ction libraries, targeting new reading goals and “book shopping.” During book shopping time the students will shop from the non ction library for books on their topic of interest and reading level. Homecoming Coronation The coronation and crowning of the King and Queen of each grade was held in the Cafeteria on Thursday, Nov. 3. Special thanks to Ms. Quesona Vereen for her beautifully bayou-themed decorations and event choreography. Mobi Boards Also on Thursday, the Math and Science teachers were issued classroom Mobi boards. The Mobi boards were purchased by the School Improvement Grant. These boards allow teachers to project their live instruction as they work with small group and also while walking around the room monitoring individual progress. Teachers may review a concept on-the-spot or present an example of success while the ow of individualized and group work continues. Ms. Trina Wayne, Pioneer Park Elementary Math and Science coach, states, “The Mobi boards allow us to take our instruction into the current age of technological advances and for our children’s sake it couldn’t have happened sooner. “As teachers, we need to get on board, offering every advantage so our students can compete globally. We especially want to thank the SIG grant for making this possible.” SchoolContinued From Page 2 WANT TO SUBMIT NEWS? e vents? | photos? | tips? | stories ? Send us an e-mail at sunnews@newszap.com

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Going Out: A Guide to Area Entertainment and Attractions November 2011 Those who live in the Lake Okeechobee area don’t have to go far to see wild animals. Animal Adventures, in rural Glades County on SW Rucks Dairy Road, is home to 13 tigers, four lions, one A frican jungle cat, one black leopard, three cougars, four bob cats, a serval and a Tigon (cross between a tiger and lioness), as well as numerous other wild creatures including snakes, coatamundi and land tortoises. A nimal Adventures is also the temporary home for a black bear who is waiting for his permanent habitat to be constructed at another facility. All of the animals are rescues from other facilities and private owners. In many cases they started out as someone’s “pet” and the owner could no longer control—or a ord to feed—the wild creature. Sue Pearce, who calls the big cats, “my babies,” explained that the fenced portion of the facility currently encloses ve acres. She has dreams of expansion. The ranch is 1,100 acres, she continued. “There’s plenty of room.” These animals must live in captivity in part because they were born and raised in captivity and don’t know how to fend for themselves in the wild. And for some, there simply is no “wild” left. “We, as rescuers, did not choose for them to be in captivity, but only to give them a good life and lots of love since they can’t ever be released into the wild,” she explained. “There has been a lot of controversy over the captive big cats. People are saying they should be left in the wild and be allowed to roam free. I totally agree with this, but if there is no wild, then where are they supposed to run wild? Man continues to destroy the natural habitat of the wild animals, and continue to poach and leaves no choice but to take care of the ones that are already in captivity. This is the only way to preserve the species.” Sue logged thousands of hours as a volunteer at another animal facility to earn the wild animal care certi cations required under Florida law. “I volunteered six days a week for two and a half years,” she recalled. In 2006, Sue Pearce and Jody Crum brainstormed about constructing sustainable sanctuaries on a large scale to bring awareness concerning animals that h ave been removed from their natural environment. Having spent time with sanctuary owners and displaced animals they realized that an opportunity existed to construct habitats that were not only stronger and healthier, but had more impact on educating the public about the animals and their natural environments. Their primary objectives are to provide a refuge for injured, displaced and con scated animals and educate the public by allowing them to experience the animals and their natural environment on an intimate level. Their long term objective is to bring awareness to the public all over the United States and educate children as well as adults concerning environmental health through the preservation of natural habitats and overall animal conservation. They started construction on the facility in July 2009, and received their rst cats in February 2010. In 2011, the non-pro t facility opened to the public on a limited basis, to help o set the cost of maintaining the animals. It costs $280 to $300 a day just to feed the big cats, who each consume 10-20 pounds of meat a day. The grocery bill for the herbivores comes to abou t $400 a week. During the summer, Animal Adventures was closed to the public, due to the heat. On Nov. 5, they reopened on weekends. They take weekday appointments fo r groups of 10 or more. The requested donation is $10 fo r adults; $5 for children ages 3 to 12 (children under the age of 3 are admitted free.) They also o er parties a t the facility or transport animals to your party. For more information, call 863-447-6050. Take a walk on the wild side: Animal Adventures INI Florida/ K. ElskenAnimal Adventures is home to Florida panthers (above) and cougars, as well as African lions. INI Florida/ K. ElskenHenry, a giant land tortoise, was once a little girl’s pet. When the child grew up, and Henry grew large, he found a new home at Animal Adventures. INI Florida/ K. ElskenThis lioness and tiger have been together since they were cubs. When they arrived at Animal Adventures, Sue Pearce tried to separate them and introduce them to other big cats of their own species, but the lioness was so distressed she injured herself by throwing herself against the cage, trying to get to her friend. So the two are housed together for the time being.

Other animal attractions in the area: LAKE OKEECHOBEE—The 20th annual hike around Lake Okeechobee will begin Saturday, Nov. 19, promptly at 8 a.m. from the Pahokee Marina and will nish up back in Pahokee nine days later on Sunday, Nov. 27. One hundred and ten miles in 9 days; just one-step-at-a-time, one-dayat-a-time. Daily hikes range from 9.5 to 15 miles and are done at the individual hiker’s pace. Each day’s segment starts at sunrise, except for day one, and nishes by noon at one of the eight trail-heads around the lake. A shorter introductory hike, a ectionately named the “Wimp Walk,” of only 3.5 miles from Pahokee to Canal Point is available on opening day. Everyone is invited to join in for a day, a weekend or more. There are no fees and you do not h ave to be a member of the Florida Trail Association to join in. This hike is not a backpacking ordeal. Only day packs are needed. Gear is left behind in campgrounds, motels or your vehicles. Daily hikes are held in the early part of the day and afternoons are for relaxing or sightseeing. Dinners are usually enjoyed at a variety of local restaurants. This yearly event is always held during Thanksgiving Week and hikers, friends and family traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving dinner at the Clewiston Inn. There h ave been as many as 90 people from the group there during dinner. Days are spent hiking the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail, which is a major segment of the 1,400 mile Florida National Scenic Trail. Few people h ave experienced the panorama that the dike a ords, a 360-degree view of the lake and lake shore. How many people, even residents of the Glades, h ave seen the vistas all around the Big Lake? Riding in a car is not the same as walking 35 feet, on average, above the surrounding terrain. The views are spectacular. Farm, cattle and urban areas pass by slowly and hikers have a chance to take it all in at a leisurely pace. From a modest start, with eight hikers in 1992, each year has seen the number of participants increase to more than several hundred hikers and well wishers on opening day. This hike is the longest-running scheduled activity in the history of the statewide Florida Trail Association, the volunteer organization that builds and maintains our National Scenic Trail in Florida, The Florida Trail. The Big “O“ Hike was started by the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association With headquarters in Gainesville. The Florida Trail Association has 18 chapters statewide and approximately 6,000 members in the United State and Canada.
