PBSO arrests man without incident, nominated for award of valorBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunIt was a frightening scene in South Bay: a man threatened to shoot his girlfriend while their children stood by watching. He had already red one round, missing the woman's shoulder but causing her a burn from the gunpowder blasting so close to her body. The man's daughter phoned for help from inside of a closet at the mobile home. Her father was holding a gun and planned to shoot her mother, she told dispatchers. She reported that he was drunk at the time. The incident happened March 24, at approximately 11 p.m. at the home on U.S. 27. Deputies arriving at the home found a Hispanic male sitting inside of a white minivan at the address. When they made eye contact with the man, deputies reported that the man started the vehicle and put it in gear. One of the deputies pointed his Four Muck area players provide boost to Palm Beach County squadBY NAJI TOBIAS e Sun There were several rsts that came out of this past weekend's inaugural Space Coast Shootout 7-on-7 Tournament. Held at Rockledge Park in Rockledge on April 7, it was the rst time that many of the Phenoms players, coaches and support staff including Glades Central's Ronquavion Tarver (Class of 2014) and Pahokee trio Derry Brown, Jonathan Jordan and Anton Paige got the opportunity to visit the Space Coast for a full day. It was also the rst time that the Pahokee players all are in the Class of 2014 got to play for an all-star team in a 7-on-7 competition. In addition, it was the rst time that four football players from the Muck got to team up with players from Delray Beach (Atlantic and American Heritage), as they all represented Palm Beach County in the tournament eld.

He had a reason to feel sure: his method for stealing consisted of a truck disguised to look like any other regular work truck, but one that hid a huge tank for storing stolen fuel. In the course of a single night, the man made away with 1,200 gallons of stolen diesel fuel near 20-Mile Bend. Palm Beach County deputies took notice after that night. It was through the careful work of the detectives that the man's vehicle was eventually identi ed as Ricardo Perez's, a 44-year-old West Palm Beach man. He had carefully transformed his vehicle to stow away the hidden compartment. This made it possible for him to travel long distances to farms in the tri-county area of Palm Beach, St. Lucie and Indian River. On some nights, he would travel from one to the next, taking as much as he could on his lone voyages.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 12, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonFlorida is the only state with a native population of Osceola Wild Turkey or Florida Wild Turkey (M. g. osceola) (Scott, 1890). This bird, named for the famous Seminole leader Osceola, is smaller and darker than the Eastern Wild Turkey. There are 80,000 to 100,000 birds living on peninsula Florida. This dark, grounddwelling bird has long powerful legs has a and bare head and neck. Its short bill is slightly down-curved. The wing feathers are very dark w ith white barring while their overall body feathers are an iridescent green-purple color. Hens or adult females are duller and lighter colored that the males except for the wing feathers which are darker. The male’s call is an explosive gobble or nasal yelp. Adult Wild Turkeys eat a variety of foods which are seasonably available including acorns, grass seeds, fruits and insects. The young rely on a diet of insects, vegetation and green plant seeds. Wild Turkeys are found in forested areas with openings in hardwood swamps, hammocks, cypress swamps, pine Flatwoods and seasonally ooded sloughs, ponds, and marshes. During nesting, the females become secretive and build their nests in areas with dense understory This nest is a shallow hollow on the ground where eggs are laid from early March through May. The hen usually lays 8 to 10 eggs, but clutches of up to 20 pale buff to white heavily spotted eggs speckled with brown or purplish-brown have been reported. The hen incubates the eggs for about 28 days and she alone cares for the young who are able to y at about 14 days of age. Sometimes two or more broods will remain together in a ock until winter.

FCAT Resource Meeting Principal Miller met with teachers on March 27th in the LTM room to discuss nal preparatory details for FCAT. The meeting served as a sounding board for teachers to request any needed resources or assistance to enhance student learning gains. Teachers expressed a need for FCAT study packets and suggested ideas for student incentives. Fourth grade students will now be attending tutoring four days a week until the test. During the meeting, teachers weighed in on best practices that have proven to enrich student understanding and performance. A few teachers extolled the bene ts of giving timed, simulated tests that are challenging and dif cult, acclimating students to high exam rigor. Mr. Miller reminded teachers of the software available including FCAT Explorer, River Deep, and GIZMOS. Following the meeting, the of ce staff helped prepare the study packets for students. Teachers were encouraged to promptly communicate any future needs. Coaching staff will still be assisting teachers with tutoring small groups and individual students in the nal days leading up to FCAT.

SFWMD remains silent BY ERIC KOPP“In Okeechobee we have a saying that character counts. I believe that and it’s fundamental to me.” Louis E. ‘Woody’ Larson spoke those words earlier this week in a meeting between representatives of Independent Newspapers-Florida and of cials from the Old River Cattle Company. The purpose of that meeting was to let Mr. Larson and his partners, Ricou Hartman and Jeffrey Clemons, state their position in regard to their cattle grazing lease with the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD). During the nearly two-hour meeting several points were touched on, but two of the more dwelled-upon points were the cutting of hay on their property and why their lease on SFWMDowned land in Glades County has never gone out for bid. Old River is currently operating off a 2006 lease that is somewhat different and more restrictive than the newer leases being given by SFWMD. That lease has been extended several times since 2006, with the most recent extension coming in December of 2011. That extension gives Old River use of the district’s property until 2022. The old lease contains requirements that the district’s other current leases do not. That old lease prohibits altering of the land which includes, but is not limited to, mowing. It also states that lessees cannot grant interviews to the media. Because of that, the Old River group had to get written permission from the district before their April 4th meeting with this newspaper— which, they did. Starting with the haying issue, Mr. Hartman explained that Old River has been baling hay on the property ever since they entered into their agreement with the district. He said some of the round bales are moved to property owned by Old River on the south side of S.R. 78 W., and some are given to the independent contractor as payment for doing the mowing and baling. The rest, he said, stays on the property. The property being leased by Old River are three non-contiguous parcels north of S.R. 78 W. and just west of the Kissimmee River. Mr. Hartman went on to explain that his company contacts the district to get permission each time they cut and bale hay. “I don’t see why it’s a big deal,” said Mr. Hartman. “You want to cut hay because it pulls phosphorous out of the soil. We did what we were supposed to do by contacting the district.” Mr. Hartman pointed out that the newer leases actually require the lessee to mow the property. Before the haying process begins, Mr. Hartman said they contact Justin Nolte, SFWMD’s land manager for the property, to get his verbal permission. A check of Mr. Nolte’s inspection reports indicate that Old River has taken good care of the property and managed it properly. “They hold our feet to the re,” he said of the inspectors. Why hasn’t Old River’s lease ever been put out for bids as required by state statute? Mr. Hartman’s wife, Janet, said the district did not have to solicit bids. “The statute is really silent on assignments,” said Mrs. Hartman, an environmental and land use attorney in Palm City who also attended the meeting. “There was no obligation for them (SFWMD) to put it out for bid because they were assuming the lease, which they had the right not to assume if they wanted to. There’s nothing in the law that addresses the assignment.” She was referring to the lease that was in place on the property when the district purchased the property from Pomcor, Inc., in May of 2006. The lease had only been in effect for one day prior to water management taking possession of the deed on May 11th, 2006. In recent weeks SFWMD’s leasing policy has been under re—speci cally, their alleged violation of Florida state statute 373.093. That statue states that all of the district’s leases must be put out for competitive bid, unless there is diminutive value. Diminutive value generally results in a reduced purchase price the district has to pay as the value of a lease is deducted from the cost of the land. The district currently has several such leases in effect. However, two area leases that were extended in December of 2011 do not have diminutive value—Old River’s lease and Alisa Sherman-Harris’ lease in Highlands County. In a 2010 interview, SFWMD’s Ruth Clements explained that Mrs. Sherman-Harris apparently had some 80 head of cattle on the district’s property without a lease being in place. She was given the choice of removing the cattle or entering into a lease. The cattle were removed. Ms. Clements is the district’s chief real estate specialist and oversees their land leasing program. Then, in early 2011, the district advertised their intention to award bids on the property. Records show that Mrs. Sherman-Harris was the high bidder and was awarded the lease on April 8th, 2011. That lease was then extended on Dec. 13,th 2011, until April 7th, 2022. Since there is no diminutive value on this Highlands County property or the Glades County property why, then, wasn’t Old River required to enter into a competitive bidding process the same as Mrs. Sherman-Harris? “I don’t know,” replied Mr. Hartman. “If this is really illegal, somebody would have sued by now. You can bet after all this was stirred up last October that the district really put their attorneys to the test to see if they were really on solid footing. “We have been in compliance with the lease and we’ve done everything we can do to be in compliance. We work hard to stay in compliance,” he added. Mr. Larson then commented on the district’s leasing program by saying there are a lot of positive things going on—not only on their lease, but other leases as well. “The South Florida Water Management District has a pretty big job and they have to manage resources for the good of the land, of the water and the people too,” said Mr. Larson. “We need to keep these leases in place and we need to keep the cattle doing what they’re doing—removing phosphorus. It’s really a bene cial thing.” Still, there are numerous questions about the district’s leasing practices that remain unanswered—mainly, why did some have to enter into a bid process to get a lease, while others didn’t? We don’t know, and neither do the lessees. And despite attempts to get that information, the person at the South Florida Water Management District who can answer that question has chosen to remain quiet. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 12, 2012 Cattle Owners Address SFWMD Lease Issues SUBMITTED PHOTOSouth Florida Water Management District Headquarters in West Palm Beach.

BY ERIC KOPPThe director of a tutoring service was jailed late last week after she w as arrested for being paid by the Okeechobee County School Board for services she allegedly never performed. Felisia Hill, 38, Annona Ave., Pahokee, w as arrested Thursday, A pril 5, on one felony count of grand theft and three felony counts of scheme to defraud. She was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail under a bond of $20,000. Jail records indicate she has since been released on bond. According to an arrest report by Detective Mark Shireman, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), the local school board received invoices from Hill stating that she had provided tutoring services for as many as eight local children. The report lists Hill as the director of Glades Extreme Tutoring. State records indicate that Glades Extreme Tutoring led their corporate paperwork May 26, 2009, and their principal address is Hill’s home address in Pahokee. Detective Shireman said Hill was paid a total of $2,266 on Feb. 28 that satis ed the invoices received by the school board for the months of October, November and December of 2011. During the course of his investigation the detective reportedly learned that while services w ere provided for one local student, Hill did not follow up with several other students but allegedly submitted a bill for tutoring them. The detective said so far he has found three families that were v ictims of the alleged scheme to defraud. Some parents, he continued, have yet to le a complaint against Hill. Because that one child was helped, Hill was charged with defrauding the school board of $1,916. “None of the other families appeared to have received any services other than a parent-adminstered pretest not returned to Ms. Hill,” stated the detective in his report. In his report, Detective Shireman described how Hill met with the families and gave them a testing packet or pretest. But, continued his report, that was the last time many of them ever heard from her. There were instances, however, where Hill allegedly sent text messages to parents around 1 and 2 a.m. Those messages, continued the detective, asked the parents to sign forms “indicating the children were being tutored.” In a couple of instances Hill reportedly sent parents $25 money orders. Tutor Charged with Defrauding School Board Water shortage warning remains in place, underscoring need for water conservationResidents from Orlando to the Keys remain under a water shortage warning as March saw below-average rainfall for all 16 counties in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD). The warning means residents should remain vigilant and practice voluntary water conservation, especially with the historically driest months of the year to come in April and May. “Water levels in key areas such as the Kissimmee Basin are holding steady, but this is the time of year when we see the lowest rainfall totals coupled with the highest evapotranspiration rates,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Operationally, we continue to hold as much water as possible in the canals and water conservation areas to make it through to the wet season.” For March, a total of 1.77 inches of rain fell across the District, representing 56 percent of the average for this time of year, or a de cit of 1.37 inches. Lake Okeechobee stood at 12.29 feet NGVD Thursday, which is 1.95 feet below its historical average for this time of year but 0.67 feet higher than a year ago. As evidence of the dry conditions: The 2011-2012 dry season de cit of 6.43 inches as of today is 3 inches greater than the same November-to-March time period during the 2010-2011 dry season. (The 2010-2011 dry season produced the driest October-to-mid-June period on record in South Florida.) January was the driest January in the SFWMD region since record keeping began in 1932. A short period in March from about the 15th to the 25th — historically the wettest time of the South Florida dry season — did not materialize. The U.S. Drought Monitor currently lists South Florida as being in a moderate to severe drought. The difference between this dry season and last year’s record dry conditions is record October 2011 rainfall that signi cantly boosted water supplies. But each year in April and May, longer days, more sunlight and higher evapotranspiration mean that water levels can fall rapidly.

OBITUARIES Hill told one parent the money order was a “... reward for the child at Christmas,” stated the detective. However, after their initial meeting Hill had not seen the child again. Detective Shireman went on to recount how, on April 5, Hill apparently went to a parent’s home and asked the mother “... if she wanted to get paid.” Hill eventually left the home and the mother, concerned about what had just happened, contacted Detective Shireman. Through the course of his investigation Detective Shireman said he also learned that Hill had submitted paperwork to the local school board that was supposedly signed by the children’s parents. That paperwork allegedly indicated that Glades Extreme Tutoring had been working with the children. Those parents told the detective, however, that they had not signed the paperwork. According to the detective, when he asked Hill for a handwriting sample to compare with those signed forms “... Ms. Hill then said she thought she may need an attorney.” Detective Shireman said the company also has tutoring contracts with Hardee, Highlands, Hendry, DeSoto, Glades and Palm Beach counties. The OCSO detective went on to say that his investigation is continuing. Felisia Hill has been keeping busy as of late, having secured a seat on the Pahokee city commission just before the allegations of wrongdoing were raised through this investigation.

SCHOOLContinued  4 The University of Wisconsin, and Robert Woods Johnson Foundation conducted the annual review of programs that in uences the overall health of a community and assigns a ranking for nearly every county in the United States. Palm Beach County remained in the top tier of the 67 Florida counties ranking 14th for health outcomes, and 8th for health factors. “These rankings are a very useful tool for us in public health. In comparison with our other counties, it validates the dedicated, hard work of hundreds of public health employees and our partners in the Public Health System” said Palm Beach County Health Department Director, Alina Alonso, M.D. Many health factors are considered when assessing what can lead to better health outcomes. Things like lowering the number of premature deaths and the number of poor-to-fair healthy days in a person’s life. Palm Beach County ranked 5th for health behaviors as it has continued to trend downward for having fewer adult smokers, 18 percent in 2011, and 16 percent in 2012. Also, the teen birth rate has dropped from 188 per 1,000 females ages 15-19 in 2010 to 38 this year. Although efforts continue to combat the obesity epidemic, the adult obesity percentage grew from 19 percent in 2010 to 22 percent this year. Areas of concern include the 16 percent of adults who drink alcohol excessively, and the increased infection rate of sexually transmitted diseases. “Together, with our community partners, we are continually looking at ways to improve the quality of health for our community,” said Dr. Alonso. Some areas to improve include: Adults and children who are uninsured 26 percent Children in poverty 22 percent Limited access to healthy food 6 percent Physical inactivity (diet and exercise) 23 percent Social and Economic factors are also considered. Overall, Palm Beach County ranked 24th in the State which includes; high school graduation, unemployment, violent crime, and inadequate social support. Further information on the county, state, and national rankings can be obtained by visiting www.countyhealthrankings.org.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 12, 2012 Gopher tortoises move slowly through ‘spring training’ of grazing, burrow-diggingLike a baseball player stretching muscles and practicing skills during spring training, the gopher tortoise is emerging from winter dormancy and moving slowly and steadily through the landscape in search of greenery to eat and a new place to dig its burrow. Look for gopher tortoises’ distinctive domed brown shells and stumpy legs, as these land-dwellers make their way through Florida’s open canopy forests and sandy areas. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) asks people to remember that gopher tortoises are good neighbors, so leave them and their burrows alone. “The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission works with, and is grateful to, the homeowners, landowners, businesses and public agencies willing to share their lands with gopher tortoises and their burrows,” said Deborah Burr, the FWC’s gopher tortoise plan coordinator. “This state has made progress in reversing the decline of gopher tortoises by providing direction to developers, including re-locating tortoises if necessary, and to help people interested in making room for tortoises.” Florida’s rst Gopher Tortoise Management Plan was adopted by the FWC in 2007 and is being updated this year as scheduled. More than 50 individuals and stakeholders already have made suggestions on improving the 2007 plan, and proposed draft revisions to the plan are available online at the GTTAG SharePoint site for review and public comment. To comment, go to MyFWC.com/ GopherTortoise and click on the “Management Plan” link. Since the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan took effect in 2007, an annual average of 36,000 acres of gopher tortoise habitat has been restored and managed; protected tortoise habitat expanded by more than 6,500 acres; and more than 4,000 gopher tortoises were humanely relocated from development sites. “In addition to changes in Florida’s economy, the needs of the gopher tortoise have changed since the plan was rst approved in 2007,” Burr said. “The proposed revisions to the plan include new actions that the FWC and our partners can implement together to improve the status of the species, and help secure viable populations well into the future.” She added, “We will accept written comments on the rst draft of the revisions until April 10. There will be additional public comment opportunities through July on each improved draft of the plan.” In Florida, it is illegal to harm gopher tortoises or their extensive burrows, which provide shelter to more than 350 other native species. Generally, the only time people should pick up and move a gopher tortoise is to help it get across a road. Remember, though, not to put the tortoise in your car. Do point the tortoise in the same direction it was going when you picked it up, but never put it in the water because it is a land animal. The best long-term protection for this state-threatened species is the people who are aware of gopher tortoises’ needs and happy to share their lawns and lands with the tortoise that can live to 40 to 60 years in the wild.

Measures to help prevent the spread of wild resIn recognition of April 8-12, as Florida Wildre Awareness Week, the Florida Division of Emergency Management reminds residents and visitors to become aware of how to protect themselves and their property from the devastation of wild res. “Wild res are a year round threat in Florida, but we are now entering what is considered the peak of the season,” said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon. “Because of the dangers posed by wildres, we urge all Floridians to become Firewise, develop a family disaster plan, and be prepared throughout the year.” In a typical year, Florida experiences more than 4,600 wild res, burning nearly 110,000 acres of land. In the year to date, Florida has faced approximately 1,600 wild res, which have burned more than 52,000 acres of state and federally managed land. The three leading causes of wild res are arson, uncontrolled yard debris or trash res, and lightning. The National Fire Protection Association’s Firewise program encourages homeowners to reduce wild re threat around their homes with prevention measures to decrease re threats, including planting re-resistant vegetation, trimming trees to a height of 15 feet near structures, clearing brush up to 30 feet around your home, and keeping roofs and gutters clear of debris, such as leaves and pine needles. Along with Firewise prevention measures, of cials urge residents to follow these guidelines set by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service's Florida Forest Service (FFS): Burning yard waste does not require FFS authorization, but you should check with city and county of cials to see if there are any restrictions in your area. Your re must be contained to an eight-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from your house, 50 feet from a paved public road, and 150 feet from other occupied buildings. Do not burn on windy days or when humidity is below 30 percent. Never leave a re unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave. Kids can learn how to protect their family’s home and stay safe from a wild re with the Firewise Simulator at kidsgetaplan.com.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 12, 2012 eliminated by the Space Coast All-Stars in the second round of the Space Coast Shootout – thanks to a crushing 26-23 loss that had Palm Beach County (2-3 nal tournament record) wondering w hat could have been. Breakdown of Phenoms playoff loss to Space Coast The Phenoms, who earned a rst-round bye after posting a 2-2 record in the preliminary games (wins over Football Fire 2, 22-8 and South Florida Express Pro, 29-6; losses to Space Coast A ll-Stars, 22-12 and South Florida Express Elite, 26-0), had a great shot at advancing even further in the tournament as they led Space Coast most of the way. On Palm Beach’s rst drive of the playoff game, Phenoms quarterback Jay Mentecky (six total touchdown passes, three total interceptions in the tournament) dumped off an 8-yard touchdown pass to Tarver (three touchdowns, seven receptions throughout tournament), which gave his team a 6-0 lead over Space Coast. Mentecky (Atlantic – Class of 2013) completed a one-point conversion attempt to Wendell Richardson Jr. (Atlantic – Class of 2013) that extended the lead to 7-0. The Phenoms defense was on a roll early as well, thanks to an interception caught by Brisly Estime (Atlantic – Class of 2013) that gave his team a 9-0 lead. Then, with the Phenoms using a two-quarterback offensive system, A.J. Puente (Atlantic – Class of 2013) took over for Mentecky, as he led Palm Beach on its second consecutive scoring drive that culminated in a 20-yard touchdown pass to Rashaad Abrams (Atlantic) for a 15-0 lead. To top off the early scoring tear, Puente (six touchdown passes, one interception throughout the tournament) lobbed a one-point conversion pass to Adly Enoicy (team-high four touchdown catches throughout the tournament; 10 total receptions), an Atlantic wide receiver from the Class of 2014, for a 16-0 Phenoms lead. Phenoms coach Marquis Gross talked about the game strategy his team had for Space Coast. “Offensively, we wanted to basically take what the defense gave us,” said Phenoms coach Marquis Gross. “We wanted to take advantage of any one-on-one opportunity with Adly (Enoicy) and (Ronquavion) Tarver and get our quicker guys the ball in space. Defensively, we just wanted to continue to play at a high level as we did all day and keep our intensity up.” All that intensity somehow dissipated immediately after the 16-0 scoring run, as the Phenoms zone defense was suddenly picked apart by Space Coast on a third down play. After forcing Space Coast’s offense to two straight incompletions, it seemed as if the host squad’s tournament hopes w ere on life support. All Palm Beach needed was one more stop to potentially put the game away, but the Phenoms defenders miscommunicated on the gamechanging play, allowing a 40-yard touchdown that cut their lead to 16-6. A successful two-point conversion by Space Coast followed, which gave the home team new life in this elimination game after cutting the Phenoms lead even more to 16-8. “We executed for the most part, but it was a mental breakdown that took us out of our elements,” Gross said. Mentecky was inserted back in as quarterback for the Phenoms on the next series, but the offense sputtered after three straight incompletions. Space Coast got the ball right back, as the All-Stars further put Palm Beach’s defense on its heels, completing four consecutive passes in the series – including a 1-yard touchdown and a twopoint conversion that tied the game up a 16-16. At this point, the Phenoms appeared stunned at what just happened on the eld. But they didn’t give up. Puente, who will competing with Mentecky for Atlantic’s starting quarterback job this upcoming season, drove the Phenoms down the length of the 40-yard eld, as he completed a ve-play scoring drive with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Fritz Narcisse (Atlantic) for a 22-16 Phenoms lead. Puente, perhaps one of Palm Beach County’s top quarterbacks, completed on a one-point conversion pass to Marcus Gaskins (Atlantic) that gave the Phenoms a 23-16 lead – and some breathing room, if at least until the next drive. The Phenoms defense wilted under pressure, as they allowed Space Coast to take a 24-23 lead, thanks to four pass completions from the home team, including an 8-yard touchdown allowed and another two-point conversion allowed by Palm Beach. In what was the Phenoms last chance to win the game, they proved to fall a minute and nine yards short. Mentecky, who connected on a 31yard pass to Gaskins that got Palm Beach to the Space Coast 9-yard line, mis red on two potential game-winning passes – one of which was a game-ending pick that sealed Space Coast’s 26-23 win. “We should have played better,” Puente said. “We had them, but a lot of the key guys just lost their focus. Even with myself, I could have done better. If we did better, then we could have won more games.” Phenoms coaching staff evaluates individual performances Phenoms coaches Aaron Millines (defense) and Gross (offense) were gushing over the Muck players, going as far as to say that they had the “time of their lives.” Gross on Paige, who caught an interception against Football Fire 2 and had four pass breakups: “He did great in our defensive schemes, making some big de ections and even got a pick out of it,” Gross said. Millines was complimentary of Brown, who caught four passes in the tournament, including a one-point conversion against South Florida Express Pro. “He made some big catches and got himself open a lot,” Millines said. Gross on Jordan, who caught two receptions out of the back eld throughout the tournament: “Jordan, who is primarily a running back, showed good hands and routes,” Gross said. “He kept his composure throughout the day, despite a lot of passes not being thrown his way.” Millines on Tarver, who was one of the Phenoms top overall performers: “He brought a spark to our team with his enthused playing style,” Millines said. “He did exactly what I expected and more.” Brown re ected on the 7-on-7 experience. “We made big plays and Anton shocked me with his explosiveness at linebacker,” Brown said. “I feel good about playing with Tarver at wideout. Jonathan was a good addition to our team as well. Overall, I loved playing with all my teammates. It was fun.” The Phenoms remaining roster consisted o f Trinity Fordham (Atlantic), Darrion Richardson (American Heritage), Warren Robinson (Atlantic) and Esdras Simervil (Atlantic). Gross on the additions the Phenoms made to their 7-on-7 team: “From the laughter, the touchdowns and the interceptions the Muck boys brought to our team, I must say it was a great move to have them on our team,” Gross said. “We look forward to them being Phenoms in the future.” SHOOTOUTContinued  1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASPalm Beach County Phenoms athlete Derry Brown (Pahokee – Class of 2014), right, catches a pass during a preliminary game agains t the Space Coast All-Stars at the April 7 Space Coast Shootout 7-on-7 Tournament in Rockledge.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsApril is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect and create strong communities to support children and their families. One goal of Public Health is getting to the root of the cause of neglect and abuse through education, changing behaviors and changing attitudes. The main goals are to love and nurture our children and stop the neglect and abuse BEFORE it ever starts, creating happy and healthy children and keeping children Safe. April was rst declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983. Since then, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse. The majority of child abuse cases stem from situations and conditions that are preventable when communities are engaged and supportive. Every 11 minutes, a child in Florida is neglected or abused. Every 45 hours, a child in Florida dies from neglect or abuse. Research has identi ed factors known to prevent and reduce child abuse and neglect. These factors include parental resilience, nurturing, attachment, social connections, knowledge about parenting, knowledge about child development, and support systems for parents. Anything you do to support children and their parents can help reduce the stress which often leads to abuse and neglect. Call for prevention information: 1-800-FLA-LOVE (1-800-352-5683) Being a parent isn’t easy. Here are some tips that may help: Be a nurturing parent. Children need to know that they are special, loved and capable of achieving their goals and dreams. Help yourself. When the big and little problems of your everyday life build up and make you feel overwhelmed and out of control, take time out. Don't take it out on your children. Be a friend to a parent you know. Ask how their children are doing. Try to provide reassurance and support. If a parent seems to be struggling, offer to baby-sit or run errands, or just lend a friendly ear. Talk to your neighbors about looking out for one another's children. Encourage a supportive spirit among parents in your community. Show that you are involved. Give your used clothing, furniture, and toys for use by another family. This can help relieve the stress of nancial burdens that parents sometimes take out on their kids. Volunteer your time and money for programs in your community that support children and families, like parent support groups or day care centers. A child's health and well-being starts with you. Provide your child with a healthy and safe home. Report suspected abuse or neglect. If you have reason to believe a child has been or may be harmed, call your local department of children and family services or you local police department. To report child abuse, you can also call 1-80096-ABUSE (1-800-962-2873) The next time everyday pressures build up to the point where you feel like lashing out -STOP! Try any of these simple alternatives. You’ll feel better... and so will your child. Take a deep breath... and another. Then remember you are the adult. Press your lips together and count to 10 or better yet, to 20. Close your eyes and imagine you're hearing what your child is about to hear. Put your child in a time-out chair -(Remember this rule: one time-out minute for each year of age.) Put yourself in a time-out chair. Think about why you are angry Phone a friend. Ask for help. If someone can watch the children, go outside and take a walk. Turn on some music. Maybe even sing along. Child Abuse Prevention Month

SUBMITTED PHOTOSActive Shooter Drill in Belle GladeOn Thursday April 5, twenty members of Battalion 7 and three members of Battalion 9 were involved in a training session at West Tech campus. The drill was a simulated active shooter incident on a school campus. Numerous obstacles were thrown in the crew’s path including sound and light deprivation, a train blocking access, and, of course, an active shooter. Everyone did a commendable job with diagnosing moulaged student volunteers and evacuating the students from the building. Channel 2 5 and Channel 5 were both on site to cover the event. Additionally, Glades crews were visited by Deputy Ken Fischer III (son of former DC Ken Fischer) who went over the drill and ex plained PBSO’s strategy if a real event were to occur. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 12, 2012 Apparently, his vehicle was so well camou aged that it was dif cult to tell that it featured a hidden 500-gallon tank system made up of several constructed tanks. "If you saw it in the elds, you would think it was a farmer," said Trevor Cayson, a sergeant with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce. Detectives narrowed the culprit to Perez, and followed him as he drove to various spots across several counties. On one of those trips he siphoned 433 gallons out of a single tank from a citrus farm. "This guy was all over the place," said Sgt. Cayson, adding, "He was that comfortable doing it. He knew where the tanks were, everything. He was probably going out two, three, four times a week." As far as what the man was doing with the fuel what can a person possibly do with so much stolen diesel? detectives say he was using it to keep his own dump truck running at his personal business in West Palm Beach. Perez was charged with two counts of unlawful conveyance of fuel, a third degree felony. Investigators hint at the possibility of additional charges, and said that they are working with the IRS, an agency that imposes nes for the theft of illegal fuel. THEFTSContinued  1 shotgun at the man and ordered him to get out. He was identi ed as Rosauro Alcaraz, 41. Once the suspect was secured, investigators spoke with the family members to obtain an account of what had happened. According to them, it was a jealous tirade by the man that led to the dangerous encounter between a man and the mother of his children. "Alcaraz had been drinking all afternoon and the altercation ensued after he accused her of cheating on him," a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce report reads. "Alcaraz got so agitated and told her a couple of times that he was going to kill her -that if she was not going to be with him, she was not going to be with anybody else." The female victim said the man continued arguing for the next two hours, at which point he made his way to the bedroom, returning with a gun. "I'm going to kill you," he reportedly told her, pushing the muzzle of the handgun against her shoulder. According to the report, she grabbed the barrel of the gun, wrestling it away but not before he red a single round that penetrated at least two walls inside the home, the kitchen and bedroom. In an effort to defend his mother, the man's 12-year-old son grabbed the gun away from his father and ran outside with it. When the daughter called for help, the man was reportedly loading another gun, threatening to nish the job, according to the sheriff's of ce. Fortunately, the deputies exercised great restraint in controlling a situation that could have ended much worse, for the victim, the man, or the deputies themselves. "He was loading his shotgun when they got there," said Sgt. Robert Quinones. Alcaraz was apprehended without further issue, while the woman victim was treated for her injuries. A responding doctor con rmed that a small bruise on the woman's right arm was the direct result of powder burn from a gunshot. The couple have ve children in common, aged 8 to 17, four girls and one boy. The Department of Children and Families was also called in to ensure the well-being of the young children. Alcaraz was transported to jail on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The responding deputies, A. Giraldo and D. Mercier will be nominated for an award of valor for their work in resolving what could have been a potentially deadly situation. "They did a great job," reported Sgt. Quinones.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 17 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 12, 2012 The Resurrection: Infallible Proofs!BY JACKIE MILLER First Christian ChurchThis past Sunday the world celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead! Acts 1:3 says, “To whom He showed Himself alive, after His passion, by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.” What are the “Infallible Proofs” referred to in this scripture? Well, I have counted at least fourteen personal appearances of Jesus Christ after His Resurrection: 1. He appeared to Mary Magdalene (Jn. 20:10-18). 2. He appeared to the other women who came to the tomb (Matt. 28:9-10). 3. He appeared to Peter (I Cor. 15:5). 4. He appeared to two disciples on the Emmaus Road (Lk. 24:13-35). 5. He appeared to the Apostles (except Thomas) (Lk. 24:36-49). 6. He appeard to the Apostles, including Thomas (Jn. 29:24-31). 7. He appeared to seven Apostles on the Sea of Tiberias (Jn. 21). 8. He appeared to the Apostles on a Galilee mountain (Matt. 28:16-20). 9. He appeared to 500 disciples in one place (I Cor. 15:6). 10. He appeared to His half-brother James (I Cor. 15:7). 11. He appeared to all the Apostles in Jerusalem (Acts 1:4-8). 12. He appeared to Saul of Tarsus (PaulActs 9:1-9). 13. He appeared to Paul again (Acts 18:9). 14. He appeared to John on the Isle of Patmos (Rev. 1:13-20). Other “infallible proofs” are: 1. The existence of the Christian Church, one of the largest organization in the world. 2. The Empty Tomb. 3. The broken Roman Seal. 4. The report of the Roman Guards. 5. The huge stone (over 2 tons) removed. 6. The Character of Christ Himself who said He would rise, and he did. 7. The lives that have been changed by Him. 8.The Shroud Of Turin which has been scienti cally proven to have been His burial cloth. There is more evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead than any other event in history. It is the most important fact in history for: Because He lives eternally, we can live eternally!” Religion Column The Anquan Boldin Foundation (Q81 Foundation) today announces they have expanded their annual Q-Festival Weekend to include the following events: The week-long Local Basketball Tournament in Pahokee, Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner at 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 12, at the Madison Green Golf Club in Royal Palm Beach, Boxing and Sparring event the evening of April 12 at Royal Palm Beach Recreation Center, Celebrity Basketball Game & Autograph Signing at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 13, at the Pahokee High School gymnasium, “Stay Fit” 3K walk beginning at 7 a.m. along with the Fun Day in the Park activities at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 14, at Pahokee High School’s Anquan Boldin Stadium, and the Gospel Celebration featuring Tye Tribbett, the evening of April 14 at Redemptive Life Fellowship Church in West Palm Beach.

Smart Money Management Group, a longtime supporter who has been instrumental in the Golf Tournament planning. The Q81 Foundation’s Bronze level sponsor, includes KDS Interior Design Studios, the newest supporter of the Anquan Boldin Foundation. “The addition of events this year is due to the many requests by people in the community to make Q-Fest bigger,” said Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and recent inductee of the Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame. “We’re expecting over 30 NFL players to attend Q-Fest and over 4,000 guests, throughout April 12-14, which is the largest so far.

WELLS UFFor the rst time, University of Florida researchers have developed plant-based technology that could reduce America's dependence on foreign oil and may also help treat cancer. Known as lignin nanotubes, these cylindrical containers are smaller than viruses and tiny enough to travel through the body, carrying cancer patients' medicine. They can be created in biore neries from lignin, a plant substance that is a byproduct of bioethanol production. Bioethanol is a renewable alternative to fossil fuel created by fermenting sugar such as that from sugarcane and sweet sorghum juices, stalks and stems. "We're looking at biomedical applications whereby these nanotubes are injected in the body," said Wilfred Vermerris, an associate professor in UF's agronomy department and Genetics Institute who was part of the team that developed the nanotubes. The team's work is described in a March issue of the journal Nanotechnology. Carbon-based nanotubes, which are the kind used today, cost around $500 a gram, and nanotechnology drug delivery has been projected to be a $220 billion market by 2015. Nanotubes offer an advantage over radiation or traditional chemotherapy because they have a protective shell that keeps the drugs they contain from affecting healthy parts of the body, such as hair or intestinal lining, said Vermerris, a member of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. As with current carbon nanotubes, cancer- ghting drugs can be enclosed in the plant-based nanotubes and sent to target speci c tumors, he said. But, the researcher said, unlike currently used carbon nanotubes, lignin nanotubes are exible and lack sharp edges. That means they're expected to have fewer, if any, of the toxicity issues associated with current varieties. "It is also much easier to chemically modify the lignin nanotubes so that they can locate their intended targets like homing devices," he said. Vermerris envisions nanotubes as a way to reduce the cost of biofuel production. "By selling the nanotubes for biomedical applications, an additional revenue stream is generated for the biore nery that can offset some of the processing costs," he said. "That essentially reduces the price of the fuels and makes them more competitive with petroleum-based fuel." Luisa Amelia Dempere, an associate engineer and director of the Major Analytical Instrumentation Center in UF's College of Engineering, guided the analysis and characterization of the lignin nanotubes as part of the research team. She called the development of the lignin nanotubes "quite signi cant" and noted their ability to break down in the environment as another advantage over current nanotubes. "They are taking something from the waste stream, like lignin is for a lot of industries, and making it into something that can be useful and then can degrade back into the environment," Dempere said. "This is probably a material that can be called green and sustainable because it comes from nature and goes back to nature." UF has applied for a patent on the technology. Vermerris said his research is now testing the technology in living cells in the lab as a rst step toward tests in humans in the near future. The research was funded by IFAS and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Plant-Based Technology That Helps Biofuels, May Fight Cancer PHOTO / UFSynthesized Lignin Nanotubes.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 20 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 12, 2012 Commitment at signing ceremony in Boca RatonThe Health Care District of Palm Beach County and The School District of Palm Beach County recognized their commitment to keeping students healthy and ready to learn by holding a signing ceremony on April 5 at Don Estridge High Tech Middle School in Boca Raton. The ceremony marked the renewal of a funding agreement between the Health Care District and the School District for the School Health program, which is now in its 15th year of staf ng full-time registered nurses in the public schools. The Health Care District, which oversees the program, funds a total of $11.5 million to place more than 200 full-time nurses in 169 public schools. Under the agreement, the School District will provide an additional $2,550,000 toward the program. Participating in the signing ceremony were Benjamin Frank, Esq., Chair of the Health Care District Board of Commissioners; Frank A. Barbieri, Jr., Esq., Chairman, Palm Beach County School Board; E. Wayne Gent, Superintendent, The School District of Palm Beach County; and Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County. "We are proud to partner with the School District to provide for the health and well-being of our public school students," said Benjamin Frank, Health Care District Board Chairman. "Thanks to our 15-year commitment, students in Palm Beach County have graduated high school having had the full bene t of a school nurse on campus from kindergarten through 12th grade." The Health Care District has partnered with the School District since the School Health program began in 1997. The program is recognized as a national model for school health. School Nurses treat more than 170,000 students for everything from injuries and illness to chronic diseases like asthma and diabetes. Last year, Health Care District school nurses treated more than 45,000 student injuries and managed more than 173,000 health screenings, including vision and hearing. "It's really important for student achievement that our children are healthy, so we highly value our school nurses," said School Board Chairman Frank Barbieri. "I've heard countless stories about the selfless, caring acts of our nurses. Surely God must have a special place in heaven for nurses, just as he does our teachers. So we're very appreciative of what the Health Care District does for us." "Our most precious natural resource is our children," added Superintendent Wayne Gent. "As a former principal, I know rst-hand the important role school nurses play in providing care which helps our students be successful." The Health Care District's School Health Administrator, Anne L. Hedges, RN, MSN, NCSN, helped develop the School Health program and believes in the value of having a full-time medical professional on campus each day. "Across the country, few school districts of our size have such a high nurse-per-student ratio," said Ms. Hedges. "For many students, the school nurse may be the only health care provider they see all year." The School Health program gives parents peace of mind about their child's health and well-being during the school day. This is especially important to parents of students with a chronic illness. Over 12 percent of Palm Beach County public school students are monitored for a chronic medical condition, including asthma, allergies, diabetes, and epilepsy. "The school nurses make sure two of my children take the medication they've been prescribed to keep their potentially life-threatening heart condition under control," said Tammy Dignoti, whose three children attend Don Estridge High Tech Middle School. "I am grateful our public schools have full-time registered nurses to provide medical care for whatever health issues students may present during the school day." After the ceremony, the participants saw rst-hand how the Health Care District's registered nurses care for students in the health room at Don Estridge High Tech Middle School. Nurse Julie Proctor and Nurse Elaine Bernard explained how they dispense medication, treat injuries and illnesses and manage chronic conditions. "We are the rst line of care for students who need immediate medical treatment or just someone to listen to their concerns," said Nurse Julie. "We coordinate their care with their parents and physicians as well as with their teachers and guidance counselors." The Palm Beach County Health Department is another key partner in the School Health program, ensuring the execution of the annual School Health Plan that's led with the State. The Health Department and the Health Care District provide medical oversight for the program. "On an average day, a school nurse may care for as many as 60 students," said Ronald J. Wiewora, MD, MPH, the Health Care District's Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer. "Our school nurses play an important role in community health in Palm Beach County."

Reserve seating in front of the stage is available for $10 or bring your own lawn chair. The Sugar Festival entertainment this y ear features James Wesley, The Osceola Brothers Band, The Nowhere Band and The Chase.James Wesley“I’ve always been a big believer in tradition,” declares James Wesley. “A lot of the old ways are the best ways: family, God, treating people right, doing what y ou’re supposed to do. I think it’s time to come back to what’s real. That’s what country music is about.” James Wesley puts those core values into his music w ith a whiskeysmooth voice and a timelessly winning w ay with a great country song. Wesley sings directly to real people about real things that profoundly a ect real lives—and from his small-town upbringing to his blue-collar w ork ethic, he has a deep understanding of what those folks are longing to hear. James Wesley hopes to do what he loves to do for a long time to come. “I want to be in it for the long haul,” he says. “I want to do those songs that everybody wants to hear, and that everybody can feel. I want to be the guy who tells the stories, and tells it like it is.”The Osceola Brothers BandThe Osceola Brothers Band was formed by 15-year-old Cameron Osceola. They became a band in May 2011 and have been playing ever since. The band consists of Sheldon Osceola, 10, Cameron Osceola, 15, and Tyson Osceola, 13. Sheldon plays the drums and the band would be nothing without the little guy. Being taught by his older brother Cameron, he caught on quickly and kept playing ever since then, and has only been playing for about 7 months now. Tyson is the bassist, he received his rst bass for his birthday and right away Cameron taught him how to play it. The third day after receiving his bass, his brother gured out songs on the bass and taught them to him, he also caught on fast. Cameron Osceola received his rst guitar when he was about seven, it was a cheap acoustic guitar form Walmart. He went through two of those kinds of guitars because his brothers kept “accidentally” breaking them. When he was nine he got a Starcaster guitar, and that was his rst electric guitar. Having nobody around to teach him how to play guitar, he just sat in his room with a c.d. player and his guitar. The rst song he learned how to play was “Patience” by Gun’s N’ Roses. Seven years later he now leads his little brothers in a blues-rock band—The Osceola Brothers Band. They all share the same in uences, since Cameron had revealed the sounds of blues, rock, and metal to them. When people hear them play, everyone tells them that they h ave a bright future ahead of them. Their debut performance was for Paul “Cowbone” Buster’s memorial in October 2011, and ever since then people always ask when they are going to play next. Cameron usually played solo with other people including R.C. North, and James Payne, who teaches music at the Seminole Boys and Girls Club on the Hollywood Reservation. R.C. set up concerts every once in a while to show the community how well their kids learned music. The band’s biggest concert was performing at the Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Fla. After playing their rst set, Native American Musician, Derek Miller saw the talent they had and wanted to meet them after the show.The Nowhere BandWhether it was in the Cavern or on the Rooftop, The Beatles dominated the 60s with their ravishing talent and not to mention, their good looks. Now, it’s time to meet The Nowhere Band. With their entirely live production of ’60s Beatles performances, their show is unlike any other! Spectators will experience four wardrobe changes, 18 plus vintage guitars, three di erent drum sets with Vox & Fender Amps and two media screens.The ChaseThe Chase is not your average run-ofthe-mill country band. They are made up of a an eclectic mix of individuals that come from several di erent musical genres. They can perform everythingfrom Hank Sr., AC/DC, to Prince! The Chase has also recorded a local fan favorite “Cane Country” which is the lead o single on Quickstar Productions: Countri ed Vol. I compilation album, available on iTunes and Amazon.com. The y have rocked the stage with many, including Jason Aldean, Alabama, and Hinder! If you’re a music lover, you do not wan t to miss this performance! They will cove r something for everyone!

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions A pril 2012 Looking for a fun outdoor activity for the whole family? Consider geocaching on Florida public lands.Geocaching is an outdoor game for users of hand-held global positioning systems (GPS) devices. It’s really a high-tech scavenger hunt. It’s inexpensive, interactive and a great way to learn geography. Participants use location coordinates to nd the caches. Some caches are easy nd; others are more dif cult. The biggest reward is the thrill of the search and the discovery of a place w here you have never been. Geocaching should h ave minimal impact to the environment and conscientious land use ethics should be followed. Geocaching is the high-tech version of the European game called “letter boxing.” Participants hide a small w ater proof box—often a Tupperware container—containing a few trinkets, a log book for those who nd it to sign, and clues on where to nd another box. Gamers follow clues to nd the box, sign the log book, remove one of the trinkets, leave another trinket for someone else to nd, and hide it again. Then they’re o on the next treasure hunt. In the modern version, instead of clues, participants use GPS coordinates. While old-fashioned letter boxers traded clues among themselves, Geocachers post GPS coordinates online on Geocaching web sites. Since 2000 when geocaching in the Florida state parks began, many people have participated—hiding caches, nding caches, logging nds and scheming new ways and new places to continue the game. To get in the game, log on to a geocaching web site, where you can search for the GPS coordinates for active geocaches in your area. According to Geocaching.com, there are 1,703,720 active geocaches and over 5 million geocachers worldwide. Before hiding a cache in a state park, contact the park manager for permission. Describe the location, how you intend to hide it (digging is not allowed) and provide a description of the cache container. The park manager will consider the site attributes and give verbal permission for you to hide the cache in the location. Consider frequent ooding, re frequency and animal habitat before requesting permission. Archaeological, ecological and historic areas are typically o limits. Geocaching: A high-tech treasure hunt for all ages Cache A waterproof container that has been hidden by a fellow geocacher, who has posted the GPS coordinates on a website, such as geocaching.com. Some caches are easy to nd. They are simply camou aged. Others may be highly disguised and hard to notice. Virtual caches are simply an unmistakable landmark or park feature. Coordinates A set of numbers that describe your exact location on the earth’s surface. Latitude/longitude (lat/ long) coordinates are the most typical lines of reference. Earthcache These virtual caches provide Earth science lessons for middle school students. A cache is not hidden, the coordinates of an earthcache mark the location of a signi cant formation or landscape. EcoCache A ‘green’ variation of a cache. Placed by geocachers at environmentally signi cant locations, an EcoCache site helps raise awareness of the role humans play in restoring, preserving and sharing the environment. Geocaching An outdoor game of hide-and-seek using a hand-held Global Positioning System (GPS) unit. Geocachers use location coordinates and a variety of clues to nd caches. The visitor may be expected to le ave or replace items in the cache or deliver items to another cache. The cache may be a small waterproof box or simply an unmistakable landmark. Geocaching is related to orienteering, where participants nd their way with a compass. Global Positioning System (GPS) unit device that reads satellite signals and then, through the use of mathematics, calculates your position on Earth as a latitude (how far north or south of the equator), longitude (how far east or west of Greenwich, UK) and altitude (how far above sea level). Travel Bug item found in a cache that is meant to travel from one cache to another. These are sometimes called ‘hitch-hikers.’ Waypoint A (usually two-dimensional) coordinate that is input into a navigation device, such as a GPS receiver, representing a position that a geocache, vessel, aircraft, vehicle or person has to navigate to, with the aid of GPS (and/or any other position xing device).

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions April 2012 Buffalo Rome and Larry GatlinBELLE GLADE—Blending a rootsy feel reminiscent of the 1970s west coast country rock scene with today’s modern country, Bu alo Rome brings a vinyl vibe to the digital age. Their stunning harmonies and expert musicianship h ave wowed audiences across the country. Their appeal is broad; they h ave appeared with such diverse performers as Kenny Loggins and Montgomery Gentry. Though they h ave been together only a short time, they h ave already been seen on Great American Country and featured in the pages of Country Weekly Magazine. With songs like “Big Sky” and “Ocean In Montana,” they are truly putting the “West” back in CountryWestern music. They will perform at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center on April 17 at 7 p.m., followed by Larry Gatlin. There h ave been many great voices in country music and one golden one: Larry Gatlin. His bell-like tones and soul-stirring vibrato are works of art in themselves, quite apart from the lyrics they illuminate. Of course, Gatlin is equally distinguished as a songwriter. Of the 42 songs he charted between 1973 and 1990, including 17 Top 10s and the Grammywinning “Broken Lady,” he singlehandedly wrote every one, an achievement unmatched by any other artist in popular music. His smash “All The Gold In California” stands as a country crossover classic. A 30th Anniversary Celebration will be held Tuesday, April 17. A reception will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with the performance starting at 7 p.m. The ticket o ce is in the southeastern corner of the building, 1977 College Drive, Belle Glade.

All seats are $6. Come see local stars perform as the Missoula Children’s Theatre returns to the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center for its 18th annual production! As we see the annual race between the Reptiles and the Mammals through the eyes of a TV news team covering the event, we soon discover that there is more than a sporting rivalry between the brown animals and the green animals. The wisdom of the old tortoise and the lesson learned by the cocky hare remind us all that “color is just a color it’s just decorated skin.” In the end, the animals realize the folly of their ways and live happily together in their sandy home. See www.mctinc.org for more information on MCT. Following the 11 a.m. performance, enjoy refreshments and lots of fun activities sponsored by the Bank of Belle Glade and Glades Area Branches of the Palm Beach County Library System.
