Inside peek into what law enforcement of cers do from day to dayBY AMANDA RAMOSGUY e SunHave you ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of law enforcement or how accurate Hollywood’s portrayal of law enforcement is compared to reality? Approximately 40 Glades’ citizens had the opportunity to nd out just that and ask questions that were burning on their minds. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce recently hosted an eight-week Citizens’ Policing Academy (CPA) in its Belle Glade of ce. The classes were held each Thursday night, beThursday, May 17, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 86 No. 13 Pahokee's boys 4x400 team places second in state track meet on April 27BY NAJI TOBIAS e Sun On Tuesday, May 15, Pahokee Senior High School recognized the track and eld program for its stellar accomplishment made throughout the spring athletic season. The boys and girls track teams, coached by John Ford, Darren Hill, Tricia Maxwell and Michael Huggins, represented their school in a big way, as the boys 4x400 relay team and girls 4x100 relay teams were among the best in the state this season. And each of the runners from both the girls and boys team recorded personal best times in their respective track and eld events, according to Ford. “We’ve had a very successful track season here at Pahokee,” Ford said. “I’m proud of our kids for all the efforts they put out there.” It was also revealed that Pahokee senior Darnett Hill (girls 4X100 relay and long jump) and junior Devaris Osborne (400 meter specialist) were selected by the Fast Lane Club (West Palm Beach) to participate in the Golden South Races, a statewide track competition that’s slated to be held on May 26 in Orlando. If both Hill and Osborne do well at the Golden South Races, they may even have an opportunity to race in Mexico this summer. “I feel like we’re with a nice program,” Osborne said. “I think we’ll do pretty well at the track meet. I can’t wait to run in it.” “We wanted to have a celebration with our kids for their accomplishment,” said Pahokee Senior High School principal Ariel Alejo, who hosted the May 15 recognition ceremony at the school’s cafeteria. “We’re very Pahokee High Honors Blue Devils Track and Field ProgramSEE PAHOKEE 11 Palm Beach Sheriff’s Of ce Hosts Citizens’ Policing AcademySEE ACADEMY 13 K & M Drugs opens fourth pharmacy in the heart of Belle GladeBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e Sun For the Kaki family, a career in the medical industry was a given. Out of a family of ve children, all went into the eld. One became a cardiologist, following in the footsteps of his physician father, but the popular career choice seems to be that of pharmacist -four of the ve siblings have become pharmacists. This is thanks to a summer job a few of them held in high school. Haitham Kaki still fondly remembers working for the small town pharmacy, J & J Pharmacy in Clewiston. It provided the younger Kaki brother his rst real taste of the job, and he along with his brothers soon developed a love for the work. Haitham became a junior partner with the owner of J & J Pharmacy in 2008 and with him opened a series of pharmacies, including one in Clewiston and another in LaBelle. In 2010, Haitham bought out his former partner and with his brothers continued expanding the pharmacy New Pharmacy Opens in the GladesSEE PHARMACY 8 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASPahokee’s track and eld program was honored by Pahokee High School on Tuesday, May 15 for its stellar showing at last month’s Class 2A state track championships, which was held on April 27 in Jacksonville.

This year's participants will join in the Scholastic Summer Challenge. During the challenge, students log their reading times in an attempt to set a new world reading record. Pioneer Park is tackling the goal of 880,000 minutes which could potentially put us on the map as a top twenty reading school in the 2013 Scholastic Book of World Records. The Pew Foundation funds several key schools throughout Palm Beach County to encourage summer reading for students and to battle the summer slide.

LLI Training Kindergarten through second grade and ESOL teachers began attending training on May 10 and May 11 with Ms. Laurie Baker, a Professional Development Trainer with Heinemann. The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention is an intervention program speci cally designed for small groups of primary grade struggling readers. LLI kits were purchased for the transformation schools and Rosenwald through the Department of Federal Programs, led by Mrs. Debbie Battles. Teachers received their extensive LLI kits and took Box 1 with them, which included the Lesson Guide, Prompting Guide, When Readers Struggle, Program Guides, and the Data Management CD. Teachers were able to familiarize themselves with some of the books in the vast library of high quality leveled readers within the program. LLI interventions target very small groups, usually three in a group keeping the teacher to student ratio low. The lessons are daily, powerful, highly structured, and fast paced. They focus on comprehension and vocabulary strategies and incorporate reading and writing. The system also integrates phonics, builds uency, and demands frequent assessments and monitoring. The research based intervention links the classroom and home. A second group of teachers will be attending the training soon. We are very excited about implementing this newest intervention in our classrooms for next year.

Tips for steering your career in the right direction If you’re a new college or high school graduate, you may have been told by older relatives that the best way to launch your career is to get a decent job and stick with it. But many experts today warn that the expectation of relying on one company to employ you until you retire is no longer realistic. “The traditional path that worked for your grandparents is not necessarily viable anymore,” says Larry Winters, founder and president of Leadership Team Development, Inc., a company that provides business support materials for Amway business owners in North America. As the author of the new book “Live the Dream – No More Excuses,” Winters believes that with the right attitude and a solid plan, you can take control of your nancial destiny. He offers these tips for new graduates inspired to make this commitment: Taking control of your nancial future and career starts when you decide to dive into your opportunity head rst. Be con dent. You can’t win with a mind cluttered with constant doubt. Excuses are easy to make and will only serve to help you avoid doing what’s right. Stop making them! The only real security in today’s economic climate of outsourcing and downsizing is the ability to perform. Gain a practical skill set and become invaluable. Spend time every day reading something to develop your personal growth. Expand your mind with the most positive, optimistic, ethical, inspiring material possible. Surround yourself with people who will help you keep a positive and motivated outlook. Don’t allow friends with a “can’t do” attitude to bring you down. Naysayers are a dime a dozen. The world teaches short-term thinking, but success doesn’t jump up and attack you. True success is a designed, programmed event. Be it the eld of merchandise or medicine, create a plan and follow it. Don’t give up when you fall. Just get back up and move forward. Failures and setbacks are all part of the growing experience. As you make your way into the “real world,” consider harnessing your time, energy and talent into an independent career. It won’t be easy, but success rarely comes without effort – and there’s no better time than when you are strong and full of energy to make it happen.

The month-long program, sponsored by the Florida Beef Council, is aimed at building awareness of beef as a highly versatile and affordable commodity. Florida is home to the largest beef cattle ranch in the United States and ranks eleventh in the nation in the number of beef cows. Cash receipts from the sale of cattle in Florida in 2011 reached $502 million, making Florida's beef industry a pro table component of our state's agricultural industry. In addition to the of cial proclamation by Governor Rick Scott designating May as Florida Beef Month, the Florida Beef Council will be working with Leslie Green, The Hungry Housewife, as its exclusive blogger and spokesperson during the campaign. Green will submit weekly recipes and photos, make media appearances and perform cooking demos utilizing Florida Beef, like Filet Mignon with Mushroom Mascarpone Sauce and Asian Beef Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette. "We're so proud and excited to announce the rst ever of cial Florida Beef Month," notes Jim Handley, CEO of the Florida Beef Council. "Our goal is for Florida residents to recognize how relevant beef is to the industry and what beef does for our great state." As part of a partnership, Tampa-based Sweetbay Supermarket will offer beef recipe tastings at select stores to drive beef sales, special summer grilling in-store signage, and underwrite billboards in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The Florida Beef Council will also sponsor an associate-speci c contest to increase beef sales.

Florida Beef Council Celebrates May as Florida Beef Month Prepare for Hurricane Season 2012 FSBDC State Of ce: The Florida Small Business Development Center Network (FSBDCN) is pleased to partner with the Florida Division of Emergency Management to help businesses prepare for and understand what a disaster could mean for their business. Critical information will be provided through the partner-assisted training sessions. Hurricane Season 2012 of cially begins June 1 and, although forecasters are predicting an average to below-average season, business owners are strongly urged to prepare for the worst. "The Florida Division of Emergency Management is excited about partnering with the Florida Small Business Development Center to assist small businesses throughout the state with completing a business continuity plan," said Director of Florida Division of Emergency Management, Bryan W. Koon. "As the lifeblood of Florida's communities, it is imperative for small businesses to reopen as quickly as possible following a disaster and advance preparation is the best method for recovery." "The Florida SBDC Network is committed to ensuring Florida small businesses are prepared for all aspects of business," said Jerry Cartwright, State Director of the FSBDCN. "Business continuity must be an important component for every business. In short, we want to ensure they stay open for business in the event of a disaster." As a principal responder in the state's Emergency Support Function (ESF) 18Business & Industry, the FSBDCN is a key economic development organization that supports disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation through its Business Continuity and Risk Management Center (BCRM) program. Initiated in 2006 as part of a congressionallydirected program funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the focus of the BCRM is to ensure that Florida businesses have the education, training, and assistance needed to minimize losses and increase survivability when affected by a disaster. FSBDC certi ed consultants statewide are available to help business owners develop a business continuity, emergency preparedness, and recovery plan at no cost. For more than 35 years, the Florida SBDC Network has nourished a statewide partnership between higher education and economic development organizations, dedicated to providing emerging and established business owners with management and technical assistance, enabling overall growth and increased pro tability for the businesses and economic prosperity for the state.

Florida Partners Help Businesses If you're one of the estimated 25 million Americans who suffer from asthma, you know what it's like to experience symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. To raise awareness and understanding of this serious and growing health problem, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation and Genentech have joined with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to launch The Asthma Express, an educational awareness program to help bring allergic asthma to the forefront. The program highlights the increasing number of people suffering from the disease and how it affects them. The program encourages people to get screened to help determine if their asthma is uncontrolled and to talk with an asthma specialist about their results and if they should be screened for allergic asthma. The Asthma Express is stopping in selected cities across the U.S., educating people at community health fairs about asthma, allergic asthma and some available testing options. In each city, the educational experience features: Interactive iPad stations where people can learn more about allergic asthma. Free testing options to see if your asthma is uncontrolled and if allergens may play a role in your asthma. A take home educational kit to help people talk with their healthcare provider about the disease. Many things can trigger or worsen asthma symptoms, leading to uncontrolled asthma that may vary and recur over time. Of the different types of asthma, allergic asthma is the most common form affecting approximately 60 percent of all asthma sufferers in the U.S. Allergic asthma is caused by sensitivity to year-round allergens in the air that trigger an allergic reaction that can lead to asthma attacks and symptoms. It is also associated with IgE, a type of antibody responsible for most allergic reactions. Typically your healthcare provider will use a skin or blood test to see if your asthma is caused by allergens in the air. "It is important to understand what could trigger your allergic asthma to help better control your disease," says Dr. Travis Stork, ER doctor and host of the Emmy award-winning talk show "The Doctors." "Many people living with asthma and allergic asthma have triggers. Identifying your triggers can help you work with your doctor to determine the most appropriate course of action. The one thing I always tell patients: Empower yourself.' When it comes to asthma, nd out if your asthma is allergic asthma."

In a unanimous vote, the Board re-elected Benjamin Frank, Esq., as Chair of the volunteer Health Care District Board. This election marks the beginning of the rst full term as Chair for Mr. Frank, a resident of Singer Island in Palm Beach County. He succeeded former Board Chair Jonathan R. Satter in October 2011 when Mr. Satter concluded his service on the Board. “I am honored to serve as Chairman of the Health Care District Board,” said Mr. Frank. “The District provides our community with a safety net of health care services that thousands of residents rely on for themselves and their families. Those services include a nationally-recognized Trauma System, more than 200 nurses in our public schools, and health coverage programs for eligible uninsured residents. I’m also proud that the District operates the Edward J. Healey Rehabilitation and Nursing Center as well as an acute care hospital in the Glades.” The District Board also re-elected Carol A. Roberts as Vice Chair. Ms. Roberts was appointed to the District Board by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners in October 2008. Alina M. Alonso, MD, the Director of the Palm Beach County Health Department, was re-elected to serve as District Board Secretary. Dr. Alonso also serves on the Glades Rural Area Support Board, which governs Lakeside Medical Center, the District’s hospital in Belle Glade. Mr. Frank was appointed to the Health Care District’s Board in February 2009 by Florida Governor Charlie Crist. After earning his law degree from New York University’s School of Law, Mr. Frank joined New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller’s administration, played a key role in the development of the World Trade Center project and the Harlem State Of ce Project in New York City, and served as Deputy Commissioner for New York State’s Of ce of General Services.

Wiewora, MD, MPH, Chief Executive Of cer and Chief Medical Of cer of the Health Care District. “Mr. Frank’s demonstrated leadership in the business, nancial and government sectors will continue to serve him and the District well in his role as Chair of the Health Care District Board.” Also serving as volunteers on the sevenmember Health Care District Board of Commissioners are Florida Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, Brian R. Lohmann, Nancy C. Banner, Esq. and Philip H. Ward, III. For more information, visit the Health Care District’s website at www.hcdpbc.org. Health Care District Board Elects New Chairman and Of cers locations under the name of K & M Drugs. Aside from the Hendry County stores, the Kaki family opened a third location in Lake Placid, while the newest location in Belle Glade marks its fourth pharmacy. The Belle Glade store of K & M Drugs opened last Monday, May 7. Already, customers have been ling in to the Main Street location to see what the new store has to offer. According to Haitham, it’s simple: it’s the customer service that sets them apart from other pharmacies. Going up against the much larger national chain of pharmacies was certainly a concern for the family when it rst developed plans to open pharmacies. How would a small, hometown pharmacy possibly compete against larger chains? “The personal services that we offer (sets us apart),” said Haitham. “We greet people by name when they come in, there are no long wait times and it’s just the comfort of knowing you’re at home.” For now, the family has focused on smaller cities around the lake area, a market where Haitham believes that personal touch is most effective. When it came time to consider its fourth location, Belle Glade was an easy decision. Kasem Kaki, Haitham’s older brother, will be running the Belle Glade location. “My family and I all grew up in the Belle Glade and Clewiston areas,” said Haithem. “This is home to us. It’s kind of in our hearts.” K & M Drugs is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 561-996-0228.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Anhinga is sometimes called a Snakebird or Water Turkey. The name is derived from the Brazilian Tupi language which means “devil” or “snake bird.” It is often mistaken for the Double-crested Cormorant. The Anhinga has a very long neck and often swims with just its neck above water. Its tail is longer than a Cormorant’s and it has a long thin pointed bill while the Cormorant’s bill has a hook-tip. The male Anhinga has a mostly black green body with a glossy black blue wings and tail. There are white feathers at the tip of the tail and elongated gray or light purple white feathers at the back of the head and neck. The female is similar to the male except it has a pale gray-buff or light brown head, neck and upper chest. Juveniles are mostly brown until after their second or third winter. Anhinga lack oil glands to waterproof their feathers. They will often spread out their wings and feathers to dry if they become waterlogged. Their call is a raspy croaking sound. This resident breeding bird is found throughout much of Florida in freshwater swamps, marshes and ponds in urban and rural area and less frequently in brackish or saltwater habitats. Their diet consists mainly of sh which they spear with their bill, but they will also eat insects and crustaceans. Anhinga will place their nests in mixed-species colonies of Herons, Egrets and Cormorants. These colonies range from six to several hundred pairs of nesting birds. The male Anhinga begins nest construction and collects nearly all of the twigs, sticks and green material for the nest, which is built ve to 100 feet above the ground. The female nishes building the bulky platform nest. Egg-laying often occurs during March and April. Three to ve white to plain blue eggs covered with a chalky deposit will hatch in 35 to 28 days. The young birds remain near the nest until they are fully grown and capable of ight.

Pre-K students were excited when they were able to release the butter ies. God’s Spirit at Work; Af rming or Denying His CallBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS Saint Martins ChurchIt’s not my altar where I serve; it’s God’s altar. I have to remember that when I’m being casual or when we’re discussing Church matters that are more mundane. People can get to thinking possessively when talking about “their Church” or “their faith.” I have to think about just whose it all is, and as a person who is supposed to serve, how I minister with the gifts entrusted to me. My stance on many things that Churches customarily do seems somewhat open to some of my colleagues. Baptism comes upon request, going over the service of Baptism as it is understood and administered in my tradition; setting a date and time, and then baptizing the child or adult who is presented or who presents himself. The Book of Acts speaks of Peter, while speaking, noted that the gift of God’s spirit fell upon all who had heard on that occasion (Acts 10:44ff). What had struck him was that some of those who were moved were “Gentiles.” These people were obviously not part of the faithful as Peter understood it was supposed to be; but it happened! They were obviously not part of the “ingroup” of the faithful as Peter expected it to be; and yet it was obvious to him that God was involved in their lives. What to do? Peter declares “Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water?(v. 47)” and he notes that they have received God’s Spirit “just as we have.” The “Gentiles” were then baptized; end of discussion! Something will move a person to ask to be baptized, or have a child baptized into the household of the faithful; I understand that to be the work of God’s Holy Spirit moving the person. Obviously, it does not come from society, or come from a world where many traditions have fallen by the wayside, or come from demands, threats or promises. God is involved; in some way, somehow, something moves persons to seek Him. Am I to be stingy with God’s gifts? Am I called to judge? Rather, I interpret those who come have been moved by God, as were the “Gentiles” that morning with Peter. Accordingly, we move forward in faith; isn’t that what it is all about anyway? Some years back I had a young lady come to my house with some pamphlets and wanted to talk about (her) religion. She had told me that she had been baptized as a child in another church but it “didn’t take.” I countered, “What do you mean it didn’t take – here you are on my doorstep talking about religion, being moved by God in some way, concerned, and you’re telling me it ‘didn’t take’!” She paused and re ected; of course it “took” and put her on a path, still seeking and searching, and built on a foundation laid long ago. The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) is that we who follow in the footsteps of the apostles “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” How to make disciples? Baptize them, then allow God to do something because He has been involved in moving them to be baptized in the rst place. His spirit will unfold in them as it is destined to do. Why baptize? Because God does something; that’s why His Son told us to do it. Baptism is not a social rite; not getting some child or adult “done,” or sociological process. It’s not about being part of a group only, but being a part of that Body of Christ that is here on earth. Nor is it a magical act of some sort; rather an understanding that this is what was commanded of us and that God will act as He sees t to act and for the best of those who respond to His call. God does something, will do something; we are to be faithful in our taking his commission seriously and do it in His name! Religion Column Rev. Sam S. Thomas

For over 80 years, Western Palm Beach County area residents have continually turned to the Sun for local news of their community. We appreciate the support readers have shown to us over the years and we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving our readers and advertisers. But the world has changed much the last 8 y ears, let alone the last 80. While the de nition of local news may have remained the same, the method in which readers may receive that news has changed dramatically. Several years ago the Sun introduced an online component to our newspaper. Free classi eds and public forums were the most attractive elements to the site, but admittedly, we fell short w hen it came to providing updated news in a convenient and timely package. All that has now changed. Beginning this month, we're very pleased to introduce our "new and improved" digital component -a site we invite you to check out for y ourself at orida.newszap.com. Unlike our prior site, orida.newszap.com offers up-to-date news, expanded photo and video galleries, comprehensive calendars and much more helpful information to readers looking for news not just in Belle Glade, Pahokee, or South Bay, but throughout the Glades and Big Lake area. We've combined the talents of our news team and contributors to create an online product that we think will be helpful and meaningful to our readers throughout the county and region. Visitors to our “new and improved” orida.newszap.com will immediately notice some new features: Daily local news updates from our acclaimed network of community newspapers serving the entire region. Expanded photo galleries and videos. The latest in local sports and entertainment news to provide you with helpful information on w here to go and what to do. Enhanced and comprehensive community calendars that are simple to use and easy for anyone to submit events. And of course, we've kept some of the most popular features such as free online classi eds, local real estate information and obituaries. The site overall has a whole new feel and look. For simplicity, we consolidated a number of pages. We think it's more attractive, interactive and easier to navigate. Most important, we think the new sites will be more useful to you as you look for current information pertaining to your local neighborhood.New Look for Community forumsAs part of the overall redesign, we have changed the format and location of the public discussion forums. In the past, the forums were a separate entity, and one of our goals during the redesign was to integrate them into the fabric of the overall website. We chose to do this because we recognize that the public discussion forums are an excellent example of a cohesive online community, and we hope to build and expand this online community by extending and nurturing it. To nurture the online community in the forums, we want to make it easier for people to obtain local, relevant and credible news they can then weave into their civic discussion. The new orida.newszap.com makes this possible. While our new forum platform has some improvements over the old, users may notice some differences in features and functionality. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are committed to upgrading and adding features to the new forums as soon as possible. But the primary purpose of orida.newszap. com remains unchanged. We seek to provide citizens with the electronic equivalent of a town meeting hall -a place for people to gather, socialize, conduct business, exchange local news and discuss public issues. As in the past, our public forums will help facilitate discussion and debate (with civility). As we grow, we will add blogs for different points of view and to provide perspective. If you've never visited our online site -or if you haven't seen us lately -please take a moment to visit us at orida.newszap.com.

Pahokee's track season, which concluded on A pril 27 at the Class 2A state meet in Jacksonville, didn't end without controversy, however.Photo nish At Jacksonville's North Florida University, Pahokee's boys 4 x 400 relay team was among the top eight squads in the state to qualify for the Class 2A gold medal. When it was all said and done, the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) clocked the Blue Devils 4x400 team at a nal time of 3 minutes, 20.61 seconds good enough for the state's silver medal. The Blue Devils boys 4x400 team nished .01 second behind Class 2A gold medalist Lakewood (St. Petersburg), which clocked in at a state-winning time of 3 minutes, 20.60 seconds. However, a video on www. runners.com shows that Pahokee's 4x400 relay team actually nished rst, edging out Lakewood for the gold medal, according to Ford. "It was a very close nish," Ford said. "For about three minutes after the race, the screen announcement showed that Pahokee placed rst in the boys 4x400. But right before we got to the podium, there was suddenly a change. We didn't know where the change came from. It was a bittersweet moment for us." The Blue Devils boys 4x400 team, which consisted of Osborne, Arthur Burnett, Malik Thornton, and Freddie Washington, were credited by Ford for their poise and grace throughout the controversial moment. "There wasn't any foolishness with how the boys responded to the moment," Ford said. "I tip my hat to them for that." Ford further explained how he thought Pahokee's boys 4x400 team had won the state title. "At the beginning, the hand times had us in rst place," Ford said. "But when the state looked back at the automatic timer, they reversed their decision. The team that beat us probably knows we won that, but we have to go with what was called in the end." Pahokee's recent appeal to the FHSAA about the 4x400 nish was denied, as the state upheld its decision to award Lakewood with the gold medal. Meanwhile, Hill, who has been shown interest by North Florida, Edward Waters College and Florida Memorial College for college track and eld, placed third overall in the girls' long jump at the state meet good enough for a bronze medal. Hill nished with a personal best jump of 18 feet, 6 inches, behind Robin Reynolds (Jackson), who nished rst with a state-record jump at 20 feet, 6 and one quarter inches and Danielle Phillips (Rockledge), who placed second with a jump of 19 feet, half inch. Pahokee's girls 4x100 relay team, which consisted of Hill, Jahnque Miller, Ronshanay Atkins and Jahnkeria Kinglocke, placed 10th overall in the state meet, as they nished with a time of 50.73 seconds. And Pahokee's Keithlin Patrick nished 13th overall in the boys' long jump at the state meet, as he was recorded at a jump of 19 feet, 6 and one half inches. Osborne on how Ford and his coaching staf f prepared the team for state: "Coach Ford always believed in us," Osborne said. "He's a great coach and he cares about all o f us. We trained hard every day on the track and we listened to whatever he had to say to us. We had a good ending, even though we feel the state too k our title away from us."

ginning on February 23 and ending on April 12 with participants receiving a certi cate of completion. The idea to hold the classes in the area came as a result of the negative perception many residents have regarding the operations of PBSO and law enforcement in general, explained PBSO of cials. Each class was lled with laughter, jokes, stories, and a few tears, but the takeaway for participants was that the of cers are people no different from the average citizen. They are dedicated individuals, constantly training for every imaginable scenario, with their work focused on maximizing the safety of everyone in a crime. CPA participants raved over each class afterward. Class members were guided through the booking process that deputies follow with each arrest; they toured the jail and were able to experience a small portion of what the environment is like inside its four walls. PBSO's sketch artist demonstrated for the class how he compiles the composite images of suspects that are shown in the media. Another favorite among class members was the mock crime scene where participants were able to see how evidence is gathered and recorded. Other departments within PBSO that were highlighted included the SWAT team and the Eagle, PBSO's helicopter. The class gasped at certain tidbits of information. For example, PBSO patrol cars are equipped with highly sensitive technology that is more than 99 percent accurate in catching speeders. Of cers informed them that not only could vehicle speeds be clocked from in front of the patrol car but also from behind the patrol car. Another tidbit of information that the of cers made sure to share with the class is that "against popular belief, cops do not like donuts." Classes also included tips and techniques on crime prevention. One technique explained was Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED); this technique teaches business owners and residents how to decrease the possibility of becoming a victim by using proper landscaping, property maintenance, and lighting. "I would like to say that I am impressed with the commitment shown by the citizens to attend every week," said Lieutenant Edward Luty. "I welcomed the chance to explain the methods used by law enforcement to deter and investigate crime. The ability to open up the lines of communication between law enforcement and the community is a good thing, and to have fun while doing it is always a plus. I learned some things from the class also, so I am grateful for that." Reagan Lyles said that the CPA classes exceeded her expectations, portrayed of cers as real people who care about their jobs and community, allowed citizens to voice concerns and ask questions, and dispelled myths and rumors about PBSO. Husband and wife Dewitt and Sherrie Dulany reported that they cut their vacation short and drove 13 hours so they would not miss a class. Michael Gazzalla praised PBSO for knowledge he gained from the "superb instructors" regarding the operations of law enforcement and felt "honored to be accepted into the program." Class members stated that they would like to thank PBSO, Lt. Luty, Capt. Grimes, the program director, and the multiple departments who taught each class; a special thank you has also been extended to Hungry Howies on Main Street, Subway on Avenue L, and other unnamed businesses for supporting CPA classes. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 17, 2012 AcademyContinued From Page 1 Photo / Amanda Ramos-GuyClass members pretend to aim guns at “bad guys.” Photo / Amanda Ramos-GuyClass participants watch a K9 attack demonstration.

Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding.

Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The nal Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or signi cant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/Florida.htm.

Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
