PHOTO / IBRAHIM ALAVAMove over SmithKelvin Taylor soaks in the magnitude of his feat last Friday: He broke a Florida football record held by none other than Emmitt Smith. Taylor, now with 8,975 yards for his illustrious high school career over three-plus seasons, set the all-time mark on a 34-yard touchdown run with 4:32 left in the second quarter. The state’s most successful running back in history spoke about the amazing accomplishment. “It feels great, man,” Taylor said. “I would like to thank all my coaches and my teammates for helping me make it possible. I didn’t think about it too much, to be honest with you.” K E L V I N > E M M I T T KELVIN > EMMITT T A Y L O R S M I T H TAYLOR SMITH Glades Day wins regular season nale, Kelvin Taylor's record-setting performanceBY NAJI TOBIAS e SunAll three of the area’s high school football teams were part of season nale games each program will likely never forget. Over at Ef e C. Grear Field in Belle Glade, the Raiders posted their most lopsided Muck Bowl win over the Blue Devils in history, by a 70-0 margin. Meanwhile, at South Fork High School in Stuart, Glades Day junior running back Kelvin Taylor passed Hall-of-Famer Emmitt Smith to become the FHSAA’s all-time leading rusher in the Gators 43-29 road victory. It doesn’t get much better than that in Muck City – as far as the regular season is concerned.No contest in this year’s Muck BowlShortly after Glades Central (10-0 overall) won the coin toss and decided to receive the ball, junior triple-threat Will Likely ran back a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. With only 16 seconds off the clock in the rst quarter, the Raiders would put themselves on the scoring board. Not exactly. A 10-yard holding penalty on the Raiders negated Likely’s electrifying return, which placed the home team on Pahokee’s 25-yard line. In just two plays – Raiders senior quarterback Tanner Redish completed a 12-yard pass to senior wideout Jems Richemond to the Blue Devils 13-yard line on a rst down play – Glades Central would get on the board, thanks to Likely’s 13-yard burst to the end zone with 11:11 left in the rst. Down 7-0 in less than a minute of play, Pahokee failed to convert a rst down on their initial offensive series as the road team was forced to punt. When Glades Central got the ball back again, Raiders Defeat Blue Devils in Muck Bowl Massacre Condition unknown; investigators search for evidenceEmergency of cials began their day early on Tuesday after a man was reported shot in Belle Glade. Still early in the investigation, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s of cials are asking anyone in the public with information about the shooting to contact the agency to identify the suspect. The incident happened at approximately 3:30 a.m. in the 700 Block of W Avenue A in Belle Glade. Responding Palm Beach County Fire Rescue members arrived to nd the victim, an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. Of cials have not released where the person was shot, or how many times. They have not released the name of the victim, who was transported to Delray Medical Center via TraumaHawk due to the severity of his injuries. There is no known suspect.

BY RANDY SMITH SFWMDIn response to improved regional water resource conditions, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board today rescinded all emergency water shortage orders for South Florida, many of which had been in place since March this year. The Governing Board also declared a water shortage warning today to encourage vigilance and voluntary cutbacks. Frequent swings in South Florida’s water conditions — and the drier-thannormal La Nia forecast — indicate a return to w ater shortage is possible. “It’s a relief to see an improvement to water supplies throughout the region, especially considering the drier-than-normal forecast for the next few months,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Joe Collins. “We continue to encourage people to conserve water and be mindful that there is still a chance that dry conditions will return in the spring.” The District’s 16-county region remains under permanent conservation measures with the YearRound Irrigation Rule that limits landscaping to two or three days per week based on location. Permitted water users such as nurseries, agriculture and utilities are required to continue following the terms of their permits. Improved Conditions The dry season that stretched from October 2010 until June 2011 was one of the driest on record and required mandatory, emergency cutbacks to protect water resources from serious harm and safeguard the water supply. The District received 38.2 inches of rain during the June-to-November wet season, which is 4.52 inches above normal and compensated for the signi cant rainfall de cit during the preceding dry season. The record-setting 9.8 inches of rain in October was two-and-a-half times the average for the month and resulted in localized ooding. Lake Okeechobee, the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, the Water Conservation Areas and groundwater levels improved dramatically in recent weeks. “The District is storing as much water as possible given the forecast for below-average rainfall in the months ahead, while also balancing ood control responsibilities. Given Florida’s long history of weather extremes and recent and dramatic swings from dry to wet conditions, we remain on alert for a drier-than-normal dry season,” said Tommy Strowd, SFWMD Director of Operations, Maintenance and Construction. “Conserving water and following the Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule remain key to stretching supplies.” October’s storms did signi cantly bene t Lake Okeechobee, a key backup water supply for millions of South Floridians. The lake stood at 13.79 feet NGVD today, and continues to rise above last year’s level. The current level is more than 2.5 feet higher than on Sept. 30. Links to information about irrigation limits by area, current conditions and water-savings tips are available at www.sfwmd.gov/waterwatch. The Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule went into effect in 2010 and was designed to reduce water use in South Florida.

Michael Luke Mazzina, 65CLEWISTON — Born Sept. 27, 1946, in Clewiston, to parents Guido and Gloria Mazzina, Michael Luke Mazzina was a life long resident of Hendry County. Not long after his arrival his family welcomed his sister Quita Mazzina, who still survives him. As a child Mike was always active in sports. In High School he excelled as a student and shined as an Elite Athlete in several sports. After High school Mike attended the University Of Florida and Graduated top of his class with a B.S. in Marketing. Immediately after college he was drafted to the United States Army where he spent much of his Duty in Vietnam as 2nd LT. After surviving hell on earth he returned home to marry his soul mate, Terry Jean Moore and created their heaven on earth. In his late twenties Mike took a career at U.S.S.C where he was Director of Purchasing for more than thirty years. In 1981, after years of trying to have children, Mike and Terry welcomed there rst child into the world, Laquita Michelle Mazzina. One year later they welcomed there son, Michael Luke Mazzina ll. Both children were deeply wanted and unconditionally loved. Mike spent his years as a father and husband shing, hunting, camping, playing and teaching sports, and gol ng. A mans man, best friend, provider, and supporter Mike was well known for his generosity in the community. Mike would give you the shirt off his back, the shoes off his feet, and the last Busch Light in his cooler and never expect anything in return. He stood up for what was right, stood behind those he loved, and wore a set of shoulders that could carry any load. Just when he thought his days of raising kids were through, along came his most prized possession, his Grandbaby Mia. Mia brought a brand new kind of smile to his face. A few years later Mia’s little brother, Brayden was born and quickly followed by his cousin Michael Luke Mazzina lll, known as Lil Mikey and just recently, Grandbaby Aleigha. Mike has many people that call him father and he did just that for every single one of them. Last names didn’t matter to him nor did rst impressions, second chances were what he was know for giving and in some cases third, fourth, and fth chances. The man never judged or convicted only loved and cared. He leaves behind a sense of responsibility and expectation in every single person who he cared for and loved to maintain, man up, get along, and most of all as he would always say, “Just Be Cool”. He was more than a man, He was a hero and always will be a Hero. Mass of Christian Burial was held 3:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 11, 2011, in Saint Margaret’s Catholic Church where Father Dan Devore Presided, visitation was Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Akin-Davis Funeral Home.

SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchA lady called me one day and said, “You gotta help me!” She had decided to quit smoking and made a promise to God that she would do it. “Now I’m going nuts,” she said. “I ght with my husband, I can’t stand my kids, I am at wits end,” and on and on. I asked her, “Why did you make such a promise?” She thought it would help her quit and was trying to give herself a boost because she knew it was going to be very dif cult. Tobacco is the number one addiction in the U. S. according to one of the authors I’ve read. Treatment centers for other addictions often will have “smoking areas” or one can see the staff taking a break outside, and ash trays are provided for those in the programs. My question to people when they are about to embark on something very serious is “Do you know what you are getting into, what you are committing to do/not do, are ready to face areas that you may well not know about?” One lesson I read recently was from Joshua (Chapter 24: 1-3, 14-25) when the people of Israel were entering the promised land. They are grateful, and Joshua puts before them a challenge. “Choose this day whom you will serve … as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” The people responded, “far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord and serve other gods,” and they recount that they were brought out of slavery and God did great things among them. They assured Joshua, “Therefore we also will serve the Lord, for He is our God.” Joshua, though, reminded them that God is a jealous God, and that he will not forgive their transgressions or sins, that He will do harm if He is forsaken, and He will consume them after having done good. That’s a bit harsh, but it speaks of a reality the people may not have wanted to face when making a commitment. RELIGION COLUMNSSEE RELIGION  7

They reaf rmed. "No, we will serve the Lord." Joshua told the people, "You are witnesses against yourselves," and the people af rmed once again, "We are witnesses." Joshua is insisting that the people whom he will lead understand the seriousness of what they are promising; and they have to reaf rm it more than once. In spite of all of the shortcomings over the centuries, and the ups-and-downs, God's people still recognize the seriousness of commitment and still work to follow Him. That's a message that is true today. Know how serious the promises we make are going to be, know what it is that we are promising, know what the implications of giving our word are going to be and don't make rash promises in the heat of an emotional moment. The New Testament admonishes, "Do not break your oath (Matthew 5:33)." It's about thinking before speaking, and when it comes to promises, be serious be very serious! Don’t be a Thanksgiving TurkeyBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchI've been called a turkey before. No one wants to be a turkey. Being called a turkey takes on an even deeper meaning when you realize the fact that commercially grown turkey is not one of nature's most intelligent creatures. As a matter of fact, the domesticated turkey has been described as being "as brainless as a baseball." Even drinking can put a strain on turkey intelligence. If a turkey is outdoors, looking up at the sky when it starts to rain, it can drown. They're often not smart enough to close their mouths in the rain. No one wants to be a turkey. But at least the turkey has an excuse for being "bird-brained." There is less excuse for us human beings. Take the nine lepers Luke writes about in Luke 17. Jesus had healed them from a disgusting, painful, and unsightly skin disease. It was a tremendous gift. Even more so in that Jesus had made it possible for them to re-enter society and reunite with their families. Ten lepers were healed. But only one leper, and a Samaritan at that, came back and said, "Thanks." Talk about turkeys! Ten received God's blessing, but only one stopped to say thanks. What about us? Thanksgiving Day is here. In which group will we be found? Amongst the nine who took their blessing and walked off or with the one who came back to thank God? If we want to avoid being "turkeys" this Thanksgiving, the behavior of that tenth leper might prove instructive. We are not meant to keep our blessings to ourselves. "Thanks," is only half of the word. "Giving" is the other half. We can make generous giving a part of our thanks-giving. Remember, every time we feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, visit the sick or the prisoner, it's the same thing as doing it for Jesus (Matthew 25:31). The tenth leper may not have had much, but in his gratitude he shared what he had to give. This Thanksgiving, don't be a turkey. In English, the word "think" and the word "thank" both come from the same root. Nine out of ten forgot to think and forgot to thank God for their blessings. But the tenth leper saw his blessings, gave thanks for his blessings, and shared his blessings. So can we.Psalm 23 A SummaryBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchI have just completed a seven sermon series on Psalm 23. What a great Psalm! This Psalm can be summarized as follows: If I know the Shepherd, I don't have to fear anything! I don't need to fear loneliness, for He is with me. I don't need to fear mistakes, for He guides me on the right path. I don't need to fear failure, for He restores my soul. I don't need to fear the future because goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life. I don't need to fear death, because I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever! God is beneath me in green pastures. He is beside me in still waters. He is with me in the valley. He is around me in the presence of my enemies. He's upon me anointing my head with oil. He is before me leading me in the right paths. He is behind me, surely goodness and mercy will follow me. He's even beyond me in Heaven. I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. What more could I want. That covers it all! Jesus is all you need, the Good Shepherd provides protection, provision, providence, companionship (His presence), and paradise. That wraps it all up. If you haven't become a Christian, I want to urge you to become one so this Psalm can be your Psalm too. You must believe the Gospel, that Jesus died for your sin, was buried and arose again. You must repent of sins. Jesus said "Repent, or Perish!" You must confess faith in Christ. Before the Eunuch was baptized into Christ he confessed, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of The Living God." (Acts 8:37). Then your must be baptized (immersed in water) for the remission of sins to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). When you do this the Lord adds you to His One Church. Then you should meet with those who call themselves "Christians only" and continue steadfastly in the Apostle's Teaching, Fellowship, Breaking of Bread and Prayer (Acts 2:42). And of course once you do this you will want to share you faith with everyone you come in contact. Jesus said: "Freely you have receive, freely give."

The largest member of the Skimmer species is the Black Skimmer which is found in America. “Skimmers are the only birds in the world with a lower mandible (bill) longer than the upper,” (Great Florida Birding Trail). The Black Skimmer is considered a species of “Special Concern” in Florida due to habitat loss and disturbance during nesting. They are found year-round along Florida’s coasts and are often reported in inland Florida from December to June. The Black Skimmer is a medium-sized large tern with white underparts and black back and cap. Adults have a long red and black knife-thin bill with an elongated lower bill which makes their recognition easy in the eld. Black Skimmers have very short red legs and long pointed wings. At hatching, the young Black Skimmer’s mandibles are equal in length, but at about four weeks, the lower mandible is longer. Immature Skimmers will have mottled black-and white feathers on their back and head. The Black Skimmers call is a barking “kak-kak-kak”. This gregarious bird is seen in large ocks in inland Florida during the winter, ying over the water dragging its lower mandible along the surface while skimming for small sh, insects and crustaceans. It uses touch to catch sh which gives it the ability to forage in low light or darkness. They normally nest in colonies on bar sandbars in coastal Florida from May through August, but have been reported nesting inland and on rooftops. Their nest is a scrape in the sand made by kicking sand with their feet. Males do more scraping with the average scrape being 10 inches in diameter and one-inch deep. The clutch size is normally four to seven pale cream, white, greenish or pinkish eggs spotted with dark brown or black which are incubated for 21 25 days. The tan colored down chicks are almost helpless when born. They must be feed by their parents for three to four weeks after hatching. Photographers, birders, adults and youth are invited participate in upcoming birding trips or the Christmas Bird Count on Dec. 31 at STA5 (Stormwater Treatment Area 5).

Pioneer Park ElementaryReading Running Records Training II Pioneer Park hosted part two of its Reading Running Record training with staff developer Kristen Rulison. Ms. Rulison coached teachers from all grade levels on the ne art of assessing students’ reading strengths and pinpointing weaknesses through the running records testing criteria. Through this process, teachers evaluate the strategies that students use when reading. Mistakes are accurately evaluated to determine the methods a student uses to guess a word or to self correct. The valuable insight given informs teachers on the skills a student may have mastered and where the next instruction should be directed. Ms. Rulison reviewed the coding of running records by reading for teachers and making mistakes while the teachers coded the reading. She then reviewed the coding with teachers. Culminating the training, a student came to read for Ms. Rulison while the teachers watched her code the child and question for comprehension. Afterwards, Ms. Rulison complimented the child’s strengths and through the running record discovered the next teaching point. She then coached the child on the needed strategy and gave opportunities to practice this skill, praising the student for the improved reading. When she took the child back to reread a prior mistake-riddled passage, the child read awlessly. Through this example Ms. Rulison gave the teachers a perfect example of time management by turning a completed running record into a reading conference. This training was attended by staff from various Glades elementary schools and was funded by the SIG grant. Upcoming Parent Night Pioneer Park would like to invite parents and the community to our next Parent Night on Thursday, Nov. 17. The SAC committee will be meeting to discuss school improvement and we will have a science presentation. Additionally, Student of the Month awards will be presented to deserving students. Please come out and see our students shine. We would also like to recognize Panther Run Elementary, our “sister school,” for their tireless efforts on behalf of Pioneer Park Families. As in previous years, over owing baskets will be given to wonderful families who may need a little Thanksgiving boost. To the staff, students, and parents of Panther Run, a heartfelt “Thank you for caring and giving!” Food for Families Each classroom will be collecting boxes of donated food throughout the days leading up to the Thanksgiving break. Students and teachers bring in the donated items and gift boxes are prepared for local families. Whether the economy is booming and especially when it is struggling, this is a terri c opportunity to instill in our students the spirit of thankfulness, giving and thinking of others. Character Building Read-alouds Ms. Christine Boldin and Ms. Noemi Moreno (West Area Resource Teacher) met over the summer and prepared a read-aloud library focusing on character building lessons. Teachers read and teach from these books during the initial thirty minutes of each day. Topics include caring, consideration of other’s feelings and dif culties, treating others with respect, and learning to redirect negative or angry reactions, as well as learning to recognize and make the right choices when confronted with bullying and discrimination of any kind. This year has seen a notable decline in discipline referrals as the students are taking these lessons to heart which was the intended original goal. SCHOOLContinued  2 As winter’s chill arrives, cold-sensitive manatees begin migrating to warmer waters. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds boaters and personal watercraft operators to slow down and watch out for Florida’s of cial marine mammal. The lumbering, slow-moving manatees generally start traveling to warm waters when the air drops below 50 degrees or water temperatures dip to 68 degrees. November is also Manatee Awareness Month, and the FWC wants to alert boaters to the slow speed zones now going into effect on the rivers, canals and waterways where manatees travel. “If you think you see a manatee, please slow down and give the animal plenty of room because it may not be alone. It may have a calf or be traveling with other manatees,” said Kipp Frohlich, who leads the FWC’s imperiled species management section. How to spot this aquatic giant? Boaters and personal watercraft operators should scan the water near or in front of their vessels and look for the signs that manatees are close by, including swirls resembling a large footprint, a repetitive line of half-moon swirls, a mud trail, or a snout or uke (tail) breaking the water’s surface. Other steps that boaters and personal watercraft operators can take to help manatees migrate safely: Keep vessels in marked channels Wear polarized sunglasses to improve your vision Obey posted boat speed zones Use poles, paddles or trolling motors when close to manatees Have someone help scan the water when under way Besides following manatee-safety recommendations, people can help manatees survive by reporting sick, distressed, injured, orphaned or entangled manatees to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). Manatee conservation is supported by Floridians who purchase the state’s manatee license plate. Funds from this specialty tag go directly to manatee research and conservation.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 17, 2011 Likely accounted for 57 additional rushing yards on just two plays – including a 25-yard scamper into the end zone for a Raiders 14-0 lead with 8:34 left in the rst. Pahokee (2-8 overall nal season record) lost its rst of four fumbles in the Muck Bowl just two plays later, with Glades Central (No. 32 in the latest RivalsHigh100 national high school football rankings; No. 1 in the nal Associated Press high school football rankings for Class 5A; No. 6 in the latest Flavarsity.com statewide all-classi cation high school football rankings) recovering the pigskin at the 50-yard line with 8:01 left. Glades Central’s next drive stalled, however, due to Redish (3-for-9 passing, 88 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT) throwing his rst of two interceptions to Pahokee senior Atwyn Young in the end zone w ith 5:58 left in the rst. Pahokee (four total rst downs, 72 total yards gained) failed to make a rst down on one of its few opportunities to get back in the game, going three-and-out once again. Glades Central nished the rst quarter with a 24-0 lead, including a 31-yard eld goal by Giov anni Lugo and a 42-yard interception return for a touchdown by Likely, who scored four touchdowns in this year’s Muck Bowl. “Our game plan was to take whatever the defense gave us,” Raiders offensive coordinator Reidel Anthony said. “One thing about football, it’s all about momentum. We always think about starting out quick with a big lead so the defense could take over.” The Muck Bowl Massacre got even worse for Pahokee in the second quarter, as the Blue Devils w ere forced to punt at the 12:00 mark in the second. Just one play later, Pahokee’s porous run defense (295 total rushing yards allowed to Glades Central) missed several tackles as they allowed Likely to score his fourth and nal touchdown – a 54-yard run with 11:38 in the second to put the Raiders up 31-0. Likely, who would most likely have been this year’s Muck Bowl MVP if there was such an honor, nished the game with six carries for 139 yards and three rushing touchdowns, in addition to that 42-yard interception return for a touchdown in the rst frame. “The kid [Will Likely] is awesome,” Anthony said. “He does this every week. He always comes out to compete hard in practice and in every game. He deserves everything he gets on the eld.” Glades Central’s only miscues in the game came from Redish’s two interceptions – the second one occurred with 9:00 left in the rst half. Redish nearly threw a third pick in the rst half, but Pahokee defensive back Jason Johnson let the ball slip right out of his hands on a thirddown play late in the rst quarter. “Turnovers are part of the game,” Anthony said. “We de nitely have to clean that up in the playoffs. We have to play a full game with no turnovers, keep it clean and minimize our mistakes moving forward.” Glades Central went into halftime with an insurmountable 57-0 lead, thanks mainly to two rushing touchdowns from senior playmaker Dominique Gibson (six carries, 31 yards) including a 1-yard airborne plunge into the end zone that put the Raiders up 37-0 with 4:35 left. Raiders junior running back Arron Baker (eight carries, 116 yards, 1 TD) added a score off an 8-yard run with 3:40 left in the second frame to put his team up 44-0. And Pahokee starting quarterback Derry Brown lost a fumble to Glades Central’s Jatavis Brown, which led to a 35-yard touchdown return with 2:51 left in the second. Pahokee found itself down 51-0 at that point. “Pahokee is a young team,” Anthony said. “Their players haven’t really competed on this level and it showed in the Muck Bowl. They’re going to grow, learn and get better as they gain more experience. It’s just a matter of having pride and coming out to compete.” The Blue Devils allowed two more touchdowns in the second half – a 28-yard interception return by Raiders defensive back Jonathan Brockman early in the third quarter and a 1-yard touchdown run from Raiders junior offensive lineman Kevin Edouard to nish off the Muck Bowl Massacre. “It was just another great experience for us,” Likely said. Glades Central, now 18-8 overall in the 26-year annual Muck Bowl series, has won the past four Muck Bowl games. The Raiders last Muck Bowl defeat came in 2007, when Pahokee was the last team since that year to hand Glades Central a home loss by a 34-24 score. Pahokee’s season is now complete, while Glades Central will be moving on to the Class 5A playoffs. The Raiders rst-round opponent is Astronaut (Titusville), a team Glades Central defeated in the 2000 state championship game. That matchup will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Ef e C. Grear Field in Belle Glade.Kelvin Taylor breaks Emmitt Smith’s FHSAA record in rushing yardageNeeding just 217 yards to break Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith’s state rushing record of 8,804 yards, Taylor rushed for 388 yards on 34 carries and all six of Glades Day’s touchdowns in his team’s road victory over the South Fork Bulldogs. Taylor, now with 8,975 yards for his illustrious high school career over three-plus seasons, set the all-time mark on a 34-yard touchdown run with 4:32 left in the second quarter. The state’s most successful running back in history spoke about the amazing accomplishment. “It feels great, man,” Taylor said. “I would like to thank all my coaches and my teammates for helping me make it possible. I didn’t think about it too much, to be honest with you. I just trusted my eyes, like my dad (Former NFL running back/ Glades Central alum Fred Taylor) always tells me, and kept running the ball. All I do is just stay patient, run through the holes the line creates for me and make people miss. I can’t thank my team and my family enough for everything.” Glades Day (7-3 overall record) continues its season with a Class 2A rst-round playoff game tomorrow night vs. Champagnat Catholic at Gator Field in Belle Glade.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 17, 2011 Thursday, Nov. 17, marks the 36th Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. The Health Department along with Tobacco Free Partnership of Palm Beach County, the Florida Department of Health, and Tobacco Free Florida are celebrating this event by encouraging Floridians to commit to being tobacco-free for 24 hours on Thursday. The Great American Smokeout challenges smokers to plan in advance to quit smoking that day, or to use the day to make a plan to quit. A comprehensive quit plan is an essential part of a successful quit attempt. The event raises awareness about the dangers of smoking and the many effective resources available to successfully quit. Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. Cigarette use alone results in an estimated 28,700 deaths in Florida each year. Despite the known dangers of smoking, more than 2.5 million Floridians, or 17.1 percent of the adult population, are current cigarette smokers. But there’s good news. From 2007 to 2010, the smoking rate for adults in Florida decreased by 18.6 percent, resulting in nearly 500,000 fewer smokers. About 64 percent of adults in the state who have ever smoked have quit and there are more former smokers in Florida than current smokers. Seven out of 10 adult smokers report that they want to quit completely. In 2010, 52.8 percent of cigarette smokers in Florida made a quit attempt. Those who weren’t successful should continue trying because most former smokers make several attempts before nally quitting permanently. In fact, the average smoker attempts to quit between eight and 11 times before ultimately quitting for good. “The Great American Smokeout is a motivating event that’s sponsored by the American Cancer Society, an invaluable partner in our efforts to support current tobacco users to quit,” said Kim Ber eld, Deputy Secretary for the Florida Department of Health. “We encourage Floridians to make this day the day they commit to quit smoking, the most important step they can take for a healthier and longer life.” Tobacco Free Florida offers a number of free and convenient resources to help smokers quit. Call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-U-CANNOW to speak with a Quit Coach who will help you assess your addiction and help you create a personalized quit plan. Enroll in the Web Coach, which will help you create your own web-based quit plan that’s right for you, visit https://www.quitnow.net/ orida. Visit the Florida Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Network’s website, http://ahectobacco.com, to locate your local AHEC and sign up for Quit Smoking Now group classes. 36th Annual Great American Smokeout BY MICKIE ANDERSON UFFood-safety experts have long believed that Salmonella bacteria could only enter tomatoes through wounds in the stem or fruit — but a new University of Florida laboratory study shows it can also happen another way. Plant pathologist Ariena van Bruggen, a professor in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, has published a paper in the online journal PLoS One, with research ndings that show — for the rst time — that Salmonella can enter tomato plants through intact leaves, travel through the plant and end up in the fruit itself. But she says she can’t stress enough that it isn’t at all easy for it to happen, even in the lab, and would be unlikely under eld conditions. “The message is that yes, (Salmonella) can be internalized in tomato, but it’s rare — the chance is so low,” she said. “I would tell consumers not to worry too much.” Although van Bruggen, a member of UF’s Emerging Pathogens Institute, described her experiment as a “worst-case scenario,” she said the ndings suggest tomato growers and packers should continue to review their already-stringent safety standards, taking a look at factors such as irrigation water sources, the possibility of wild animals getting too close to plants and the use of surfactants. Keith Schneider, a food safety expert and IFAS faculty member, called the study’s ndings intriguing, but said hand-washing by consumers and food handlers is still likely to have the single biggest impact on whether people become ill from anything they eat. “There is probably a far bigger risk of people becoming sick from not washing their hands, or their kids not washing their hands, than the possibility of this route of infection occurring in nature,” he said.Big business in FloridaTomatoes are a $619 million annual industry in Florida and food-safety scares do tremendous damage to growers. In 2008, the industry lost an estimated $100 million when federal health of cials erroneously blamed a Salmonella outbreak on domestically grown tomatoes, only to announce later that contaminated jalapeo and Serrano peppers from Mexico were responsible. Salmonella is among the most common foodborne illnesses, often spread by raw or undercooked meat, poultry or eggs, but sometimes through contaminated produce. It can cause abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. Results from the 2.5-year study were published in the online, open-access journal Public Library of Sciences (PLoS) One. To test the hypothesis that Salmonella might be able to enter tomato leaves, van Bruggen and two postdoctoral researchers brie y dipped one leaf from each of 84 tomato plants into a potent solution that contained high concentrations of Salmonella, plus a surfactant commonly used by tomato growers to ensure that pesticides or fungicides stay on the plants. Another 42 plants were left as a control group. Later, they tested adjacent, non-inoculated leaves and the tomatoes themselves. The study was conducted over a 10-month period and then replicated. In the study’s rst phase, nine tomatoes from one inoculated plant tested positive for Salmonella. In the second, Salmonella was found in adjacent, noninoculated leaves from eight tomato plants; as well as 12 tomatoes from two plants that were leaf-inoculated with a different strain of Salmonella. Reggie Brown, manager of the Florida Tomato Committee, which has regulatory authority over most of the state’s tomato production, said the industry has some of the most stringent safety standards in agriculture, anywhere. In Florida, safe tomato production practices are required by law. “Food safety is never an absolute, but we are doing everything that good science and good practices tell us to do to produce the safest product possible,” he said. “Ninety-nine point nine nine nine nine percent of produce is safe.” Florida Lab Study Shows Salmonella Can Enter Tomatoes Through Leaves Submitted PhotoPot Luck FeastBelle Glade Elementary Faculty enjoyed a Pot Luck Feast.
