Thursday, November 24, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 86 No. 122 Driver ejected after crashing into vehicle aheadBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunRakson Rodriguez, a 26-year-old man from West Palm Beach, was killed on Sunday after he collided with a vehicle on S.R. 700 outside of Belle Glade. Although it isn’t known what caused the man to careen into the vehicle in front of him, the speed at which he was traveling was suf cient to cause the two vehicles to lose control and crash into the guardrail. The man was the lone fatality. The accident happened on Sunday, Nov. 20, just after 5 a.m. The exact location given for the crash was S.R. 700, four miles east of Hatton Hwy., six miles w est of S.R. 80. That’s where, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report, a 1998 Ford pickup truck trailed by an 2006 In nity car along the roadway was hit from behind. The driver of the In niti, for reasons that investigators may never know, failed to slow down and struck the vehicle ahead with its front side. The impact sent both vehicles out of control. They both crashed into the guardrails running along the road, but the driver of the In niti was ejected w hen his vehicle overturned. A third vehicle, a 1995 Lincoln, also struck the pickup truck after the initial crash. The drivers of the pickup truck and the Lincoln were transported to Lakeside Medical Center with only minor 3-Car Wreck Kills 1 Glades Day advances to nal vs. Jupiter ChristianBY NAJI TOBIAS e SunOne down, four to go? In Glades Central’s state championship-or-bust season, the Raiders (11-0 overall) began their march toward the ultimate prize as they blasted Astronaut (Titusville) out of the Class 5A playoff with a convincing 33-0 home win on Nov. 18. The rst quarter proved to be a mostly scoreless affair, as both the Raiders and War Eagles defenses held each other’s offenses out of the end zone. However, Glades Central freshman Giovanni Lugo broke the tie after connecting on a 25-yard eld goal try with 7:51 left in the rst frame. The 3-0 lead by Glades Central held serve until the second quarter, primarily due to a seemingly successful Astronaut offensive drive that ended with a missed eld goal. Astronaut’s rst – and most critical – offensive series started out with a lot of promise, as the War Eagles marched their way toward Glades Central’s red zone. Beginning at the Astronaut 31-yard line – after Lugo’s 25-yard eld goal – the War Eagles gained 58 yards off of nine completed play, mostly off nice runs by Astronaut senior running back Markhail Bell. Bell (13 carries, 80 yards) ran a remarkable 36-yard run up the middle of Glades Central’s vaunted defense, thanks to a second-and-9 play from Astronaut’s own 46-yard line all the way up to the Raiders 18-yard line. The red zone, however, proved to be an uncomfortable visit for Astronaut. Two penalties – a false start (5-yard loss) at Glades Central’s 16-yard line on second down and a devastating hold penalty (10-yard loss) on a third-and-3 play at the Raiders 11-yard line – killed any chance the War Eagles had for a potential upset. In addition, that holding penalty on Astronaut came on a third down play that Astronaut’s Steven Williams actually ran three yards to the Glades Central 8-yard line – which would have been a rst down. Glades Central Shuts Out Astronauts Local artists take part in county-wide talk on the artsBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunA poet, an animator, a theatre educator and a painter were the four artists who responded to a call for an “Artist Conversation” held recently at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade. Organized by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council, the event may have garnered a smaller number of respondents compared to the other locations that were held throughout the county, but still served as a sounding board for the things that local artists would like the county to do in offering them more exposure, or perhaps even business opportunities to showcase their art in a way they have never been able to do previously. Approximately 100 people from places like Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, and the four artists who participated locally, took part in the series o f independent discussions held at less than a handful of spots. According to Rena Blades, president and chief executive of cer of the Palm Beach County Cultural Council, the meeting events will help shape the way the council reaches out to them. If nothing else, the events helped to serve as a meet-and-greet for local Artist Discussion Held LocallySEE WRECK 7 SEE FOOTBALL 15 SEE ARTISTS 9 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASGlades Central senior quarterback Tanner Redish (11-for-13 passing, 146 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) gets set to throw a long pass in the rst half of the Raiders 33-0 playoff win over Astronaut on Nov. 18.

Second Grade Class Adopts a Pet Ms. Michno’s second grade class is very excited about their new class pet; they recently adopted “Howie”, a Florida manatee. Howie is no ordinary class pet; he is 40 years old and lives in Blue Springs, FL which is just north of Orlando. Howie was chosen as their class pet because of his sunny disposition. He is known for being the most playful manatee in the spring and will actually push other manatees out of the way to have his picture taken; a picture of Howie hangs from the classroom for all to see. every couple of months, the class will receive updated information about him which we hope they share with all. The adoption of “Howie” was as a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn about manatees, endangered species and ways to help the manatee population from becoming extinct.

BY MARK KINGThe Lake Okeechobee water level is up, temperature is cooling off, and the bass are moving in off the main lake toward traditional spawning areas. What this all ads up to some great bass shing here on the big lake as we head into our season here in South Florida. The number of bass being caught has been crazy and some really nice ones over seven pounds are showing up almost everyw here on the lake. If you sh a tournament on the lake, you had better have at least thirty pounds in ve sh; records will be broken this year again in tournaments on Okeechobee. I have been shing from Kramer Island to the Monkey Box with some really great success catching bass on both arti cial lures and on the wild shiners. If you like shing with the wild shiners than be prepared to use a lot of them, last week I used more than seven dozen in just the morning and still had the afternoon to sh. The arti cial bite has been really good also but you do have to look a little harder to nd the sh -when you do, they are really stacked up in one area. Some areas that have been really good are Long Point, Ritta Island, Buzzards Roost, East Wall, West Wall, and the Turners Cove area. And that is just what's going on here at the south end of the lake. I usually start shing the outside grass line and move back in the thicker stuff til I nd the sh. The wind and dirtier water from out on the main lake being pushed in to the grass has a lot to do with where these bass are positioned. My arti cial lure selection has been pretty small with Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper being my go to bait and a jig with a Charlie's Worm Craw and a Salt Stick O being my next two favorite lures. Braided line is a must for shing in the heavy cover and Diamond braid in 65 pound test gets the job done for me, along with this you will need to use a pretty heavy action rod to get these bass out of the grass. You can once again get around on the lake almost anywhere without worrying about hitting the bottom with your motor. God blessed us with water when the rainy season was over and we had lost hope for a good winter here on the lake. He worked his greatness for us and now we are going to have one of our best seasons ever on world famous Lake Okeechobee. So it is time to get your boat out and get on the water because the shing is great and it isn't quite as hot this time of the year to be on the water. The crappie shing has also been really good on the lake and some good areas to try are the outside of Uncle Joe's cut, around Bird Island, and of course the Kissimmee River is always good this time of the year. Duck season is also in and I have had some really good reports on a lot of ducks on the lake, anyone wanting to get out and do some duck hunting can contact me and I will get them set up for a great day of duck hunting on Lake Okeechobee. Good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.Capt. Mark King is a full time guide out of Roland Martin’s Marina and Resort in Clewiston Florida.

New study sheds light on possibilitiesBY 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, published a paper today 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. Tomatoes 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 -year study were published today 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, non-inoculated 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.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Salmonella can Reach Tomatoes Through Leaves SUBMITTED PHOTO

During halftime of the Glades Day Gator football game last Friday night, November 18, a special presentation was made to Florida’s new all-time leading rusher Kelvin Taylor of Glades Day. In the previous week’s game against South Fork High School, Taylor rushed for 388 yards giving him a total of 8,975 yards and 141 touchdowns, surpassing the previous record held by hall of famer and all time NFL rushing leader Emmit Smith. On the 50yard line, Taylor’s father, NFL great Fred Taylor presented him with a personalized signed football from Smith. 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. 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. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 HERES MY C HERES MY C ARD!

D.+ Saint Martins ChurchA writer on worship says it begins when we recognize that we didn’t do it all by ourselves; and that creation points to the one who did – God. When what He did comes on us, we stop to give thanks and praise with all we have; and worship starts, thanksgiving and praise. Noah builds an altar when the ark descends and makes a thanks-offering to God for deliverance (Genesis 8:20). Jesus shares a Passover meal with His disciples. giving thanks (Matthew 26:26ff, Luke 22:17ff, 1 Corinthians 17:23ff). People have always worshipped their CreatorRedeemer-Sustainer by thanking in recognition for the goodness and love bestowed. We share w ith those who have given us the example through feelings that they must have held. Noah was scorned by those who watched his creation of a large and cumbersome boat in his front yard. It paid off and salvation of humanity came through it as the story goes, but not without rough and dif cult moments. It would have been tempting to land and say “Well, Lord, what an uncomfortable trip and w hat a dif cult time – was that necessary?” Instead, Noah sees the big picture: God has saved, God has blessed Noah, and with the realization comes worship: thanking God for being there and for what Has done. The Lord as He faces the end of His earthly life, shares a meal with His disciples, and thanks His father for what has been provided. The plea w ill be “deliver this cup..not my will but thy will,” and then shares the meal at the heart of worship w ith Thanksgiving. Every year at this time, I re ect on how we could join with those who say, “Ain’t it awful!” w hen they look at all the problems in the world, the tragedies at home, their own losses or lack of things. Then I try to recall all of the blessings that have come my way, too. God has given gifts, talents, our daily bread, a good land in which we live, opportunity and blessings. I choose to look to all who give thanks in spite of all the reasons we might feel we could complain. Have times been better? Yes; and then I remember times in my own life when things were better and things were worse; and all of the ups and downs that come with just being alive. Then it is up to me to see the big picture; and then give thanks to God for all that He has done. Our founding fathers, likewise, set the example. A rough ocean voyage to Plymouth Rock and a new world that had yet to be built, leaving behind families and the comforts of familiarity, and being prepared to struggle and face losses yet unknown but very likely to happen. In spite of it all, they too gave thanks. They knew God was guiding, and they would do their part. They did, He did and we give thanks today because of His being with them and with us too. Getting GrumpyBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchGuess which of Snow White’s seven dwarves is most popular? If you guessed, “Grumpy,” then you agree with the people who have made “Grumpy” shirts one of Disney’s big sellers. It’s not so surprising, since “grumpy” seems to be the mood of a lot of Americans these days. With the political race heating up, it seems like nobody is really excited about anybody -Republican or Democrat. There are those opposed to spending more money and those who want to stop Wall Street and people making money. Some don’t like what the president’s doing; some don’t like what congress is doing; some don’t like what anybody is doing. One great desire in some presidential election is to have someone I can really vote for rather than using my vote to vote against someone I fear. Sometimes I feel like voting “none-of-the-above.” Our country is aching for a leader who won’t let us down. We are looking for a person of integrity who can actually do something about the problems facing us and our nation. As much as human leaders may have let us down, it doesn’t change the fact that our hearts are hungry for someone to look to. Someone who can take us where we haven’t been able to go ourselves. We are longing for someone who totally lives what he or she says; someone who not only promises, but delivers. Our desire is to nd someone whom we can follow with confidence. There really is a hole in our hearts that’s starved for a great leader in our life. Several years ago, we heard about “the miracle on the Hudson.” The jetliner’s engines had been disabled on takeoff by a ock of birds, and it looked like a tragic crash could be the only outcome. But thankfully, their pilot that day was Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, a veteran ghter pilot, airline pilot, and crash investigator. He was probably one of the few pilots who could have brought that plane in safely. It would be nice to have a captain like that in the cockpit of every ight I’ve own, but I’ve never been given the option to pick the pilot for my ights. I have, however, been able to pick the pilot for my life. Jesus is the one Pilot I know who can bring me in safely, no matter what happens. Make Him Captain of your life ight and He will bring you in safely as well. RELIGION COLUMNS Rev. Sam Thomas Pastor John Hicks

CENTRAL COUNTY WATER CONTROL DISTRICT 402234 CN 11/10,17,24/2011 15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Roofing However, the penalty pushed Astronaut to the Raiders 21-yard line as they played the third-down play again, with Bell being able to gain only two yards to Glades Central’s 19-yard line. The game essentially came down to a 36-yard eld goal attempt by War Eagles sophomore Tyler Sparling on a fourth-and-11 play. With 1:46 left in the rst – Astronaut controlled the clock for almost half of the rst quarter – Sparling’s eld goal kick went wide right. The missed opportunity – which would have evened the score up at 3-3 – essentially proved to be the game’s most critical element for both teams. “It put a little doubt in our minds after that,” Bell said. “If we just punched the ball in the end zone and nished the drive, we could have given ourselves a chance. That really hurt us.” It hurt big time for Astronaut (8-3 nal overall record), as the Raiders needed just three plays –starting from their own 42-yard line – to air the con dence out of the War Eagles, thanks mostly to a 43-yard heave from Glades Central senior quarterback Tanner Redish (11-for-13 passing, 146 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) to senior wideout Jaime Wilson that reached Astronaut’s 15-yard line. Followed by a 5-yard run to the Astronaut 10yard line from Raiders junior running back Arron Baker ( ve carries, 28 yards), Redish found Wilson off a corner route he ran to the end zone – a 10-yard touchdown pass with 11:52 left in the second frame that extended Glades Central’s lead to 10-0. The Raiders never looked back from there. “We came out here to perform,” said Wilson, who caught a team-high seven passes for 123 receiving yards and that touchdown. “Everybody was on same page. We knew we were going to play a good team, so we had to play well as a unit. We played together the whole game and that’s why we’re moving on in the playoffs.” Glades Central scored 20 of its 33 points in the second quarter, thanks to a 6-yard touchdown run from junior triple-threat playmaker Will Likely (12 carries, 122 yards, 2 TD) and a pick-six for senior two-way player Dominique Gibson, who returned a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown off an errant pass from Astronaut’s Marquis White (5-for-18 passing, 47 yards, 1 INT; eight carries, 71 rush yards). The Raiders, who led 23-0 at halftime, nished Astronaut off in the second half with Likely’s second and nal touchdown run – a 49-sprint to the end zone in the third – and a 30-yard eld goal from Lugo to cap the game’s scoring. “Our boys played really hard,” White said. “Glades Central is a pretty good team. They have number 4 (Will Likely), who is probably the best athlete we played against all year. Their team has a real chance to make it to state this year.” Glades Central, the District 14-5A champion, will travel north to play District 13-5A winner Merritt Island in their Class 5A regional semi nal game on the night of Nov. 25. The Raiders road game against Merritt Island – a team that bounced District 14-5A runner-up Boynton Beach out of the playoffs in the rst round – is set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. Notes: Glades Central has moved up yet again in the statewide and national rankings, as the Raiders currently are locked in the following spots: No. 6 in the latest FlaVarsity. com statewide all-classi cation high school football poll No. 32 overall in the latest RivalsHigh100 national high school football poll No. 50 overall in the latest ESPN. com Powerade Fab50 national high school football poll If Glades Central wins its second-round matchup – they are heavily favored to beat Merritt Island – then they’ll be at home on Friday, Dec. 2 in the Class 5A regional nals. The Raiders will play either fellow nationallyranked powerhouse Norland (Miami) or Jackson (Miami) in what’s expected to go down as an instant classic battle at Ef e C. Grear Field in Belle Glade. Glades Day 35, Champagnat Catholic 8 Kelvin Taylor led the Gators with 26 carries for 210 yards and four total touchdowns to power Glades Day (8-3 overall record) in its Class 2A rstround playoff game at Gator Field on Nov. 18. Taylor, who was presented with a commemorative and custom-made football at halftime, raced his way into the end off of 58 and 10 yard runs in the rst quarter. After Glades Day came back on the eld from a 14-0 halftime lead, Taylor scored his other two touchdowns in the third quarter – including a 60yard touchdown pass from senior quarterbac k John Barr (5-for-8 passing, 108 yards, 1 TD). Taylor – who received the specially-made ball in the mail from Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith – has passed the legend’s career rushing yardage record even further, as he has now amassed 9, 185 rushing yards in three-plus seasons. In addition, Taylor has a real chance of becoming the Muck’s rst-ever 3,000-yard rusher b y the time the postseason wraps up. In just 10 games – Taylor did not play against Clewiston earlier this season – he has racked up 258 carries for an astonishing 2, 539 yards and 36 touchdowns. Taylor is just 461 yards away from cracking 3,000 yards for the 2011 year. Meanwhile, Glades Day’s quest for its eighth state title continues on Nov. 25, when it will clash with archrival Jupiter Christian (9-2 overall record) in the Class 2A regional nals. It is expected to be a very close battle – and an epic classic that could come down to the very last play for both teams. Glades Day will go for its third consecutive playoff win over Jupiter Christian, which scored a come-from-behind win, 32-27, over Dade Christian (Miami) in its rst-round playoff game. Jupiter Christian, meanwhile, is hoping that for the third season in a row, the road team wins this matchup for the right to play in the Class 2 A state semi nals on Friday, Dec. 2. The kickoff time for this game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. FootballContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASGlades Central’s Will Likely (12 carries, 122 yards, 2 TD) races past the Astronaut defende r on a rst-half play in the Raiders 33-0 playoff win over the War Eagles on Nov. 18.

Beats other hospitals across the country in patient satisfaction Lakeside Medical Center has been recognized as a leader in patient satisfaction among the nation’s 110 public hospitals. Based on the scores compiled in the National A ssociation of Public Hospitals and Health Systems’ (NAPH) 2011 Quality Performance Report, the rural hospital, owned by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, exceeded the US and NAPH averages in nine out of ten areas of measurement and had the highest score in 5 of 10 areas of measurement. “Patient satisfaction is one of our most important measures, so we are proud that our patients are reaping the bene ts of our staff’s dedicated efforts,” said Brian P. Gibbons, Jr., FACHE, Hospital Administrator. “We continually look for ways to improve upon our patients’ experience and seeing these tangible results is very gratifying.” NAPH staff produced the report using publicly-reported data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Hospital Compare web site, w ww.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov. The survey data covers patients hospitalized from October 2009 to September 2010 and is collected from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), w hich is a national, standardized survey of hospital patients. The survey contains patient ratings in eight key areas: communication with doctors, communication with nurses, responsiveness of hospital staff, pain management, communication about medicines, discharge information, cleanliness of the hospital environment, and quietness of the hospital environment. Lakeside Medical Center scored the highest in the following areas: 1) percentage of patients w ho reported their doctors always communicated well (90%), 2) percentage of patients who reported their rooms and bathrooms were always kept clean (86%), 3) percentage of patients who reported their pain was always well controlled (85%). 4) percentage of patients who reported that staff explained medicines before giving them (75%), and 5) percentage of patients who reported the area around their rooms was always quiet at night (82%). “The data re ects our hospital staff’s commitment to delivering high-quality care in rural, western Palm Beach County,” said Benjamin Frank, Esq., Health Care District Board Chair. “We thank our medical staff and all of our hospital employees for earning this recognition.” Lakeside Medical Center, which opened its doors in 2009, is a 70-bed, all-private room hospital located in Belle Glade, Florida. It is Palm Beach County’s only public hospital. “It’s rewarding to learn that our patients feel positive about their visits to our hospital,” said James T. Howell, MD, MPH, Chair of the Glades Rural Area Support Board, which governs Lakeside Medical Center. “These high patient satisfaction scores are just another example of how we are delivering on our mission to provide quality care for the people who visit and live in the Glades communities.” “Our goal is to continue to work hard to maintain a high level of patient satisfaction,” said Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, the Health Care District’s Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer. “It is important that our patients recognize as we do the valuable role Lakeside Medical Center plays in supporting the community’s healthcare delivery system.” Lakeside Medical Center Leads in Satisfaction 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Open Evenings Emergencies Welcome All InsuranceWelcomeFREEDigital X-Ray & Consultation or Second OpinionNEW DENTURES$359starting at$99ea.starting at(D5110) (D5120)Exp.11/30/11Exp. 11/30/11Exp. 11/30/11(D2750) (D7140) FROM (D9310) (D0330)CROWNSEXTRACTIONS$499LIMITED TIME ONLY IMPLANTOLOGYISNOTARECOGNIZEDSPECIALTYBYTHEAMERICANDENTALASSOCIATIONANDFLORIDABOARDOFDENTISTRY.
