Lifetime Raider passes onBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThey say she had a quality that is dif cult to explain. She had an air of meekness, but it was a show of duplicity since when she spoke the room would become silent. Her voice was not overpowering, but it carried a strength reinforced by the understanding that she had been through much in her life. She spoke to the people of Belle Glade as though she personally understood their plight. And that is because she did. Dr. Grear died last Wednesday from complications from heart surgery. People interviewed for this article expressed a deep sense of sorrow for the loss of one of the Glades area's brightest advocates. Her unrelenting work in the area marked some of the most positive highlights in its history, including the desegregation of schools, the construction of Glades Central High School, and the work she put into championing the idea of a new hospital for Belle Glade to replace an aging, deteriorating facility. The message was that the Glades area deserved better, but her manner of communicating this was laid out eloquently, and in the end, proved effective. She was there when Lakeside Medical Center opened in Belle Glade. Terri Calsetta, with Lakeside Medical Center, still remembers how Dr. Grear would take time during every major holiday to visit with patients at the hospital. "She was one of the most compassionate women I have ever met," said Ms. Calsetta. "She really cared that these people were in the hospital, so she would give up her holidays to bring them joy. She was a phenomenal woman."

For the third consecutive year, the two Glades Central Raiders alums and legends both of them have had several years of NFL experience on their resumes collaborated on a community outreach initiative and hosted their football and speed camp on May 19 at Pioneer Park. More than 150 campers took to the elds at Pioneer Park, as the attendees most of who hail from the Glades Central high school football team and from the Glades Glen Browns, Glades Youth Panthers and Okeechobee Center Bulldogs youth football programs participated in a series of circuit, conditioning and fundamental drills that were geared toward improving their skills on the gridiron.

Captain King says Lake O shing, Keys shing great this time of yearBY MARK KINGWhat a spring it has been here in South Florida with the bass shing on Lake Okeechobee being awesome and the tarpon shing in the Keys being just as good. I have been pretty busy wearing both hats. I know that I haven't sent out a shing report for a few weeks and wanted to let everyone know that the bass and tarpon are really biting here in Florida. First thing I want to talk about is Lake Okeechobee and the water level starting to get low. It is at 11.56 feet above sea level and dropping more each day. But the good thing is that the bass are still biting and the arti cial bite has been as good as the live bait bite has been using wild shiners. My guide clients are catching some really nice bass up to nine pounds, and the numbers of bass being caught are still great for the water getting low and the summer time heat starting to get pretty warm. I have been shing mostly the shoal but have wandered down south toward Kramer Island, and have also done pretty well there too. The bass are moving out toward the main lake with the water level going down; this means that most all of the points have bass stacked up on them. The bass have also moved out into the eel grass on the shoal. Catching the bass on topwater early in the morning and then using Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper swimbaits the rest on the day has been my best method for catching some nice bass. I have also been doing pretty well on a big jig and craw trailer. For shing in this eel grass, a heavy action rod and at least 50-pound braided line is a must. For shing the jig in the reeds and bulrush I have been using an extra heavy 7' 11" Okuma rod. I have been catching a few bass on a bluegill colored wake bait by swimming it around the bluegill beds, but you need to make long casts so as not to scare these bass in this shallow clear water. Speaking of bluegill, I have never seen so many beds as I have seen the past couple weeks in areas like the shoal, West Wall, East Wall, and both sides of Ritta Island. If you want to catch some monster bluegill then Lake Okeechobee is the place to be right now. Now on to one of my favorite sh, the giant tarpon and the Florida Keys is the place to be if you want to do battle with one of these magni cent sh. I have been doing a good number of charters here the past month in the Keys and the shing has been great with a good number of hook ups and quite a few sh making it to the boat for pictures and measuring. I have been shing from Grassy Key area to the Bahia Honda Bridge and seeing a lot of tarpon everywhere. I have been using mostly crabs and pin sh for bait, but if you can get them, mullet work great. I use a pretty heavy action rod and reel spooled with fty pound test braided line, an eighty pound test uorocarbon leader and usually a 7/0 circle hook. Drifting the live bait with the current works best and the more the tide is ushing bait through the bridges the better the shing is. If you have never been to the Florida Keys to sh for tarpon or to just enjoy the tropical atmosphere then let me recommend it to anyone who needs a stress relief. I also have my 20' Key Hopper ats boat for sale if anyone is looking for a great ats boat just contact me for details. Until next report good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.

University of Florida honeybee researcher Jamie Ellis is interested in what happens to bees that encounter chemicals and Varroa mites — but he’s even more interested in how younger bees fare long-term after facing those challenges. Scientists have been trying to explain the bee-killing malady known as Colony Collapse Disorder, which causes honeybees to abandon their hives, become ill and die. Ellis’ lab has been studying how combinations of environmental factors — chemicals, pathogens, natural enemies — affect bees. Since widespread honeybee die-offs began to be reported around the U.S. in 2006, researchers have been working to pin down a cause. Bee pollination is critical for much of the food we eat and some estimates suggest the U.S. bee industry is responsible for pollinating as much as $15 billion worth of crops every year. In the Ellis lab’s most recent study, outlined recently in the Journal of Insect Physiology, researchers reared honey bees from young larvae to the pupal stage. The UF researchers then exposed the immature bees to a variety of chemicals used in agriculture and beekeeping, including two fungicides, two herbicides and ve insecticides. They also exposed them to Varroa mites, which weaken bee colonies. During the experiment, a control group of bees wasn’t exposed to anything, others were exposed only to the chemicals, or only to mites, and some of the bees were exposed to a combination of chemicals and mites. The researchers gauged the effects on larvae by analyzing the activity of about 50 genes associated with stress, immune response and bee development. Ellis, an assistant professor of entomology in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, stressed that the scientists were only able to screen for expression in some — but not all — genes. They had expected that exposing the bees to the combination of mites and chemicals might produce a more pronounced negative impact, but they didn’t nd any. But their results did suggest, among other things, that two common fungicides — chemicals used to protect crops from fungal infections — apparently have more in uence on bees than previously believed. By examining the selected genes, researchers found the fungicides had pronounced effects on the larvae, although they are generally considered non-toxic to bees. “The data suggest that fungicides are not innocuous to bees,” he said. Ellis’ next study will go much further, with scientists preparing to raise the bees from larvae to adulthood, labeling and following each individual bee. “In most studies, investigators treat a eld with a product, put bee colonies adjacent to the eld and then sample whole colony strength after pesticide exposure. At the end of the day, all you are able to say is ‘this colony is responding in this way to the eld treatment.’ You don’t know why it’s responding in that way. When we begin to label bees, it will permit us to investigate an area that has yet to be studied. We’ll be able to follow individual bees throughout their entire lives, thus allowing us to determine long-term impacts of pesticides on bees.” Besides Ellis, the research team members included former UF postdoctoral research fellow Aleš Gregorc; Michael Scharf, a former UF entomologist and now the O. Wayne Rollins/Orkin Endowed Chair in Urban Entomology at Purdue University, and Jay D. Evans, research entomologist with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. The study was funded by the National Honey Board, the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Farm Theft deterrent practices: 1) Don’t keep excess fuel in tanks when pumps are not being used. 2) Keep gates and fuel tanks locked. 3) Do not to set fuel pumps or tanks in areas which are in close proximity of public access/ gates or where they can be seen from the roadway. 4) Don’t store excess chemicals on the farm, try to only order what is needed on a daily basis and reorder as necessary. 5) Educate employees to record tag number of suspicious vehicles on property. 6) Set up video cameras or game camera’s on chemical sheds, fuel storage areas and workshops, etc. 7) Measure and record fuel tank levels/ amounts before/after fuel deliveries. It’s just good business practices to con rm delivery amounts. 8) Contact Law Enforcement on all suspicious incidents, no matter how small. It helps us develop intelligence needed to apprehend the criminal. 9) Develop an “owner applied number” system for your assets over a certain dollar value (ex: engrave or stamp the # on equipment with a value of $300, or whatever value you choose). 10) Take photos of your equipment with a certain dollar value (evidence for law enforcement to help recover and return stolen goods to the rightful owner). 11) Conduct Ag meetings with local law enforcement periodically monthly, quarterly.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Red-headed Woodpecker is a strikingly tri-colored bird that is found in deciduous woodlands in the eastern United States. These birds are considered “near-threatened” because of the decline in their population over much of their breeding range. They are a partially migratory woodpecker with a somewhat patchy distribution, but they are occasionally reported living and breeding in inland Florida. The bright red hood that covers the entire head and neck of the adult Red-headed Woodpecker makes it easy to identify at rest or in ight. Adults have a black back, tail and wings with white underparts and white secondary wing feathers. Juveniles have a gray-brown head and black bars on white secondary feathers. Immature birds will have some red in the head. Their call is a loud “tchur-tchur”. Red-headed Woodpeckers nest in dead trees or dead branches, preferring well-weathered snags in pastures and open woods, as well as parks and open urban and rural habitats. These birds will move into areas where land has been recently burned or cleared. They will attack other birds to keep them out of their territory and are known to remove the eggs of other species from nests and nest boxes. Red-headed Woodpeckers will store food and is the only woodpecker species known to cover stored food with wood or bark. Insects and seeds are hidden in cracks in wood, under bark, in fence posts and under roof shingles. They have a habit of perching on a branch, “hawking” for insects which they catch in ight or on roadways. These birds will occasionally visit bird feeders. Nesting occurs annually from May to September where they normally raise one brood. The nesting cavity located ve to 80 feet above ground takes six to 17 days to excavate. Both parents incubate the four to seven white eggs, which hatch in 12 to 14 days. The young stay in the cavity, depending on their parents for food, until they edge at about 25 days of age.

Margaret England Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 7.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.53/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.70/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices Sunday were 27.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 33.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 15.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “With Memorial Day a week away, it’s time to put to bed an old myth that gasoline prices rise ahead of a major holiday,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Average gasoline prices will likely continue to decline in the days ahead of Memorial Day, but folks will still say come next year that prices went up over the weekend this year. It’s a sign of how sensitive motorists become to gasoline prices around the holidays, nothing more, and most of the time, the myth isn’t true. This year will be one of those yearsunless you’re on the West Coast, prices have been slowly coming down,” DeHaan said.

Before the FLW Tour on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard began this w eek, National Guard pro Scott Martin of Clewiston, Fla., dedicated his efforts to his wife, who has been a vital part of his support over the course of his career. Martin, the reigning Forrest Wood Cup champion, led the rst three days of the event and on Sunday he got to dedicate a victory to her, as well. A t the end of the day, Martin's ve bass worth 13 pounds, 7 ounces gave him a total four-day weight of 66 pounds, 6 ounces just 3 ounces heavier than second place as well as a championship trophy and $126,000. The win boosted Martin's career winnings past the $2 million mark. Martin's teammate, National Guard pro Justin Lucas of Guntersville, Ala., narrowly missed earning his rst Tour win and posted a total weight of 66 pounds, 3 ounces to claim second place. Lucas won $34,276 for his efforts. "Every win is just so special, but this one here is unbelievable," said Martin, who now has ve Tour-level victories. "I dedicated it to my wife earlier in the week before practice started and was able to pull it off. Usually when you say you're going to do something like that you kind of jinx y ourself, so this is one of the most proud (wins) I've ever had." Although he led the entire tournament, Martin's lead shrank more and more each day. On Sunday Martin admitted he didn't think he was going to win the tournament. "I pretty much said I wasn't going to win," Martin said. "I thought somebody was going to bring in a 17or 18-pound bag and edge me out. But God is good. "When I got in and saw some of the weights starting to hit the scale I thought, Man, I might have a shot at this thing.'" Martin said he shed excruciatingly slowly and picked apart grass beds with a Bruiser Baits paddle tail worm. He said he wouldn't catch a sh for 20 minutes and then he would catch one that w ould allow him to replace his smallest sh in his limit and increase his weight by 4 or 5 ounces. Then he would repeat the process. "You feel like a caged animal," Martin said. "Because you're sitting in this one little spot ipping into every little hole you can. "I just stayed con dent out there," Martin said. "(David) Dudley kind of touched on it a little bit. It's not the lures you throw. A lot of times it's not even the exact spot you're shing. It's con dence that wins tournaments, and I had a lot of it this week. It really paid off bigtime. The winning lure really was con dence." The remaining top 10 pros nished the tournament in: 3rd: Castrol pro David Dudley, Lynchburg, Va., 20 bass, 65-7, $28,943 4th: M&Ms pro Jim Moynagh, Carver, Minn., 20 bass, 64-7, $24,610 5th: Colby Schrumpf, Highland, Ill., 20 bass, 63-12, $19,276 6th: Chevy pro Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., 20 bass, 62-8, $16,376 7th: Clark Wendlandt, Leander, Texas, 20 bass, 61-11, $15,410 8th: Kellogg's Frosted Flakes pro Dave Lefebre, Erie, Pa., 20 bass, 61-10, $14,443 9th: Clifford Pirch, Payson, Ariz., 20 bass, 6110, $13,476 10th: EverStart pro Ron Shuf eld, Bismarck, Ark., 20 bass, 61-4, $12,510 Overall there were 50 bass weighing 141 pounds, 4 ounces caught by pros Sunday. The catch included 10 ve-bass limits. Chris Dillow of Waynesboro, Va., won the co-angler division and $20,000 Saturday with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 47 pounds, 3 ounces followed by Greg Knick of Ansonia, Ohio, in second place with 15 bass weighing 46-11 worth $7,238. In FLW Tour Major tournaments, pros and co-anglers are competing for valuable points that could help them qualify for the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart, the world championship of bass shing. The top 35 pro and co-anglers in the point standings from the six FLW Tour Major tournaments will qualify. The Tour stop on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard was hosted by National Harbor and Prince George's County, Maryland, and was the fth of 10 Walmart FLW Tour tournaments of the 2012 season. The Walmart FLW Tour on Kentucky Lake presented by OFF! will be the next tournament and will be held June 7-10 in Murray, Ky.

They Gave Their Todays for Our TomorrowsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThe Civil War ended in 1865. But it wasn’t until 1997 that the last shot of that war was red. In 1997, two young boys playing around with their new metal detector came across a live shell that dated back to the Civil War. The police came and exploded the shell, in many ways making it the last shell red from the Civil War. It’s pretty amazing that years after the end of a war, its weapons could still be alive and capable of destruction. Yet that seems to be the nature of war: its effects linger on in the lives of people and nations for many generations. Most of us can recall the World War II photo of ve Marines raising an American ag on the island of Iwo Jima. The man in the center of the photo was John Bradley. Although Bradley won the Navy Cross for saving a fellow soldier’s life, he preferred not to talk about the war and refused to accept any hero worship that others tried to force on him. One of the few comments Bradley ever made about the war, he made to his young son in response to a remark about heroism: “The real heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who didn’t come back.” This weekend, we honor those men and women who didn’t come back. The ones who, in President Abraham Lincoln’s words in the Gettysburg Address, “gave the last, full measure of devotion.” When we re ect on the honor and heroism of our soldiers, we are confronted with the sacri ces they made, as well as our response to those sacri ces. The whole concept of anyone making sacrices for us, much less dying for us, sometimes makes us uneasy. Confronting their heroism forces us to stop and examine our own lives. Why did they do what they did? What cause is worth dying for? Would we be willing to do the same? Celebrities are people who make news. Heroes are people who make history. The qualities of heroism are eternal--self-sacri ce, courage, honor, duty. A man who served in the Navy during World War II shared that one night he was running his transport across the Atlantic when he noticed the white trail of a torpedo coming toward him. His ship was lled with hundreds of soldiers, and the potential loss of life would have been devastating. Nearby, a smaller ship had also seen the torpedo coming. The captain of the smaller vessel maneuvered his ship between the transport and the torpedo. The explosion destroyed his ship, killing all those on board. The man who told this story ended it by saying, “The skipper of that other ship was my best friend.” Slowly, he remarked, “You know, there is a verse in the Bible which has special meaning for me now. It is this: Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” What kind of love would give itself up for another? What kind of love would be willing to die for you and me? It’s the love that Jesus demonstrated to show us how much we mean to God. It’s the love we celebrate today in the example of those soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. In India there is a cemetery where the bodies of American soldiers are buried. Over the entrance to the cemetery are these words: “Tell Them We Gave Our Todays for Their Tomorrows.” Let’s never forget that our tomorrows were bought with a price. Someone had to pay with their lives, so that we might be free today. There is no way we can suf ciently say, “Thank you.” In the revised words of the hymn, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, “As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free, God’s truth is marching on. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Highway 721 west of Lake Okeechobee on the Brighton Seminole Indian ReservationMust be 18years old to play Bingo.

Students that attend Palm Beach Gardens Community High, Suncoast Community High, William T. Dwyer High, Glades Central Community High, Pahokee Middle/Senior High, and Inlet Grove Community High will all be present at the event. NFL players Abe Elam of the Dallas Cowboys, Anquan Boldin of the Baltimore Ravens, and the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Fred Taylor will headline the Youth Recreation Association’s annual NFL weekend gala June 14-16. The proceeds from the event will bene t the non-pro t Youth Recreation Association of Palm Beach County and its athletic programming across the county. The relationship that Youth Recreation Association has with NFL stars, past and present, is legendary and nearly 50 years in the making. Youth Recreation Association Athletic Director and Founder Dan Calloway began the organization in 1965 while working with the Riviera Beach parks department, meeting young athletes who had the skills and drive to go all the way, but no money to help make it possible. Mr. Calloway began a fundraising effort that helped Lemar Parrish make it to Lincoln University, for example, and Anthony Carter to University of Michigan. Now, Calloway works with his former recruits to help others. Mr. Calloway said, “Athletes in the past should have done more for the kids in their community as it relates to teaching the young kids respect and the fundamentals of life as well as self discipline as a means of helping produce productive citizens.” A star-studded football camp for young players aged 8 to 18, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 14 at Cardinal Newman High School’s football eld. Mr. Elam is a graduate of the school.

On June 15, the Youth Recreation Association will host a golf tournament at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter. The day starts with lunch at noon followed by a scramble at 1 p.m. Participation is limited to 30 teams; cost is $200 per person or $800 per four-member team.

school and high school. “In year three, I think it’s steadily growing,” said Holmes, who will be entering his third season as a wide receiver for the New York Jets and his seventh overall in the NFL. “It’s a wonderful thing to see the number of kids increasing every year and the families showing their support for their kids in the Fred Taylor/Santonio Holmes Glades A ll-Star Football Camp. It’s a tremendous feeling to know that these kids just want to be like us and I’m thankful we can give them this opportunity.” Taylor, who retired from the NFL last year after playing 13 seasons at running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New England Patriots, echoed Holmes’s assessment of their morning camp. “We want to do whatever we can to give back,” Taylor said. “All of the kids in our community here are special. It’s not about us putting a name on this camp; it’s all about them. We just want to keep growing and help motivate our kids to stay off the streets and out of trouble. We want to keep making them feel special.” Taylor took the time to talk to the campers, who all ranged from 6-18 years old. “It makes my heart feel good to see you young kids out here running around and having a good time,” Taylor said. “That’s what it’s all about. When I was your age, I didn’t have an opportunity to play with other kids in the community. I had to play in my backyard, which wasn’t a bad thing.” Taylor also touched on the importance of taking a stand against bullying and violence – two topics that representatives from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce talked about as well. “Do not bully each other,” Taylor said. “If you see somebody bullying someone else, do not let it go on. Bullying is bad. If you want to go on and be where me and Santonio are at, or where the Glades Central players are at, then you need to stay out of trouble. Always have fun and have a good time. Be friends to each other. Carry yourself in a polite manner. Don’t curse. Say yes sir, yes ma’am, no sir and no ma’am. Be nice to and respect all of your elders because if you do, they’ll look out for you.” Holmes spoke directly to the youth campers as well. “We didn’t have this opportunity like you have now,” said Holmes, who has been playing football since he was six years old. “We had to get everything on our own. You are given this opportunity to learn how to be teammates and be friends with each other. This is where it all starts for you all.” Holmes added that while he and Taylor have played for NFL teams over the years, the real team for them is at their camp in Belle Glade with the youth. “With the generation of kids, myself and Freddy, we’re going to try to take as much blame for you guys as we can from this point on,” Holmes said. “We want to continue having this camp from you all. We want you to keep good grades and stay out of trouble. We want you to have as much fun as you can for the rest of your lives.” Marcia Bahia, the PBSO Violent Crimes Division’s gang prevention coordinator, added some encouraging words to the youngsters. “No matter what people say, you are all special and important,” Bahia said. “We took our time to be with you. Now, since you are special and important, you are responsible for making the right choices in your lives. Despite the struggles that we go through in life and our backgrounds, you still have a choice in the end. You can go the right way or the wrong way. We all have the power to choose the right path.” Taylor encouraged everyone to love and support each other out regardless of how tough circumstances may be. “Take care of each other,” Taylor said. “We got to lift and build each other up more. Let’s try to stay positive and stay focused. You have a whole lot of people pulling for you to be successful. Believe in yourselves as we continue to believe in you. Let’s do this again next year. God bless you all.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 24, 2012 CAMPContinued  1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASFred Taylor speaks with the younger campers about the importance of refraining from bullying and violence.

continue learning Tae Kwon Do. The children seem amazed when Master Joe, one of their instructors, takes a moment of class time to demonstrate a technique that they’ve only seen on TV. Graduation day was no different. Students watched as Master Joe (Jose Alcazar) broke w hat appeared to be four boards with his head, and kicked boards held by assistants—two at chest level and one at head level. The event ended w hen parents were given the honor of replacing their child’s white belt that symbolized innocence w ith the yellow belt. Master Joe explains the program as extending beyond simply sports. Children are not taught to ght; they are taught lessons that are to be applied to every aspect of their lives and techniques that can be used to defend themselves if needed, he said. Before each class begins, students bow to the ags, parents, and instructor; this teaches them respect for their country, parents, and authority gures. They recite the student creed, “I am proud to practice the martial art of Tae Kwon Do. I will practice the ve qualities of a grand champion in my daily life: honesty, knowledge, perseverance, attitude, humility. T.K.A: Dedicated to a better future for America.” With limited activities available to school-aged children, the course is a positive one. Many parents have reported great changes in their children since beginning the program three months ago. Nearly every parent interviewed for this article stated that their child has lost weight, is more exible, physically active, and remains excited to be in Tae Kwon Do with their friends. One parent said her children asked to skip the family vacation because they did not want to miss any classes. The role model that the instructors have become to the children was another popular bene t spoken of by parents. Emilio and Michelle Montalvo state that their seven-year-old daughter, Gabriella, takes each of the ve qualities to heart and makes an effort each day to abide by each one. One parent stated that her children argue over whose turn it is to pretend they are Master Joe. Christian Frias said that her daughter was extremely excited when she was able to break a board using her hand. Jesse Garcia’s son has become more obedient and more honest. Olga Flores’ son, Carlos, is more helpful and has a better attitude towards his siblings. The instructors have also notice great personal growth in their students; improved grades, attitudes, and alertness in defending themselves in school and in class are some of the changes noted. When many of the children began the TKD program, they would cry or “tap out” in sparring sessions -now the children wrestle until the whistle blows, signaling the end of the ght. Sparring partners are often mismatched according to size and gender to maximize each student’s opportunity to learn self-defense techniques. Each sparring classes ends with reinforcement to not give up a ght even though an opponent is bigger or older, the argument being that one da y their lives may depend on it and they will have no control over their opponent’s size or age on the street. TKA has been in business for 14 years but recently decided to come to Belle Glade after many parents spoke to the instructors about the great need an outlet for the children in the Glades. The parents explained that the children’s onl y option was staying home with nothing to do and that they wanted something that offered physical activity and motivation. The excitement in the eyes of the children seemed to reinforce that. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 24, 2012 Guidance Counselors, for a very successful Career Week.

Harry S. Truman is President of the United States. Fuller Warren is the Governor of Florida, and the rst state sales tax is passed during his administration. Most families do not own television sets, but AM radio stations are broadcasting hits by Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and Elvis Presley. A gallon of gas costs 20 cents, and you can buy a 6-pack of Coca Cola at the supermarket for 37 cents. It is during this year that Rosenwald Elementary School is built in South Bay to provide a facility for educating the children of the hardworking farm laborers of the far western reaches of Palm Beach County. Fast-forward to 2012. In 61 years many things have changed dramatically, but Rosenwald is still a community school focused on providing the best possible education for the children of South Bay. Many of those children have heard their parents and grandparents talk about when they themselves walked the school’s open corridors and sat in the same classrooms. Those parents and grandparents also emphasize an important lesson they were taught—that you can do almost anything you want to do in life if you make the most of your educational opportunities. Rosenwald’s original buildings are still in use, although some have been repurposed; and newer buildings have been added to the campus over the years. Thanks to an outpouring of support from the entire Glades community, however, construction will begin this fall on a new school. The Rosenwald family, and all the residents of South Bay, are eagerly looking forward to the day when they will be able to move into their modern, state-ofthe-art, enclosed school facility. In order to honor the accomplishments of the past 6 decades and celebrate the bright hope of the future, the Rosenwald staff and students will be presenting a Fabulous Fifties June Jubilee program at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 1. The program will feature student performances by each grade level; recognition of former administrators, staff members, and students; and a display of students’ math, language arts, and science projects.

Lifetime Raider passes onBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunThey say she had a quality that is dif cult to explain. She had an air of meekness, but it was a show of duplicity since when she spoke the room would become silent. Her voice was not overpowering, but it carried a strength reinforced by the understanding that she had been through much in her life. She spoke to the people of Belle Glade as though she personally understood their plight. And that is because she did. Dr. Grear died last Wednesday from complications from heart surgery. People interviewed for this article expressed a deep sense of sorrow for the loss of one of the Glades area's brightest advocates. Her unrelenting work in the area marked some of the most positive highlights in its history, including the desegregation of schools, the construction of Glades Central High School, and the work she put into championing the idea of a new hospital for Belle Glade to replace an aging, deteriorating facility. The message was that the Glades area deserved better, but her manner of communicating this was laid out eloquently, and in the end, proved effective. She was there when Lakeside Medical Center opened in Belle Glade. Terri Calsetta, with Lakeside Medical Center, still remembers how Dr. Grear would take time during every major holiday to visit with patients at the hospital. "She was one of the most compassionate women I have ever met," said Ms. Calsetta. "She really cared that these people were in the hospital, so she would give up her holidays to bring them joy. She was a phenomenal woman."

For the third consecutive year, the two Glades Central Raiders alums and legends both of them have had several years of NFL experience on their resumes collaborated on a community outreach initiative and hosted their football and speed camp on May 19 at Pioneer Park. More than 150 campers took to the elds at Pioneer Park, as the attendees most of who hail from the Glades Central high school football team and from the Glades Glen Browns, Glades Youth Panthers and Okeechobee Center Bulldogs youth football programs participated in a series of circuit, conditioning and fundamental drills that were geared toward improving their skills on the gridiron.

Captain King says Lake O shing, Keys shing great this time of yearBY MARK KINGWhat a spring it has been here in South Florida with the bass shing on Lake Okeechobee being awesome and the tarpon shing in the Keys being just as good. I have been pretty busy wearing both hats. I know that I haven't sent out a shing report for a few weeks and wanted to let everyone know that the bass and tarpon are really biting here in Florida. First thing I want to talk about is Lake Okeechobee and the water level starting to get low. It is at 11.56 feet above sea level and dropping more each day. But the good thing is that the bass are still biting and the arti cial bite has been as good as the live bait bite has been using wild shiners. My guide clients are catching some really nice bass up to nine pounds, and the numbers of bass being caught are still great for the water getting low and the summer time heat starting to get pretty warm. I have been shing mostly the shoal but have wandered down south toward Kramer Island, and have also done pretty well there too. The bass are moving out toward the main lake with the water level going down; this means that most all of the points have bass stacked up on them. The bass have also moved out into the eel grass on the shoal. Catching the bass on topwater early in the morning and then using Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper swimbaits the rest on the day has been my best method for catching some nice bass. I have also been doing pretty well on a big jig and craw trailer. For shing in this eel grass, a heavy action rod and at least 50-pound braided line is a must. For shing the jig in the reeds and bulrush I have been using an extra heavy 7' 11" Okuma rod. I have been catching a few bass on a bluegill colored wake bait by swimming it around the bluegill beds, but you need to make long casts so as not to scare these bass in this shallow clear water. Speaking of bluegill, I have never seen so many beds as I have seen the past couple weeks in areas like the shoal, West Wall, East Wall, and both sides of Ritta Island. If you want to catch some monster bluegill then Lake Okeechobee is the place to be right now. Now on to one of my favorite sh, the giant tarpon and the Florida Keys is the place to be if you want to do battle with one of these magni cent sh. I have been doing a good number of charters here the past month in the Keys and the shing has been great with a good number of hook ups and quite a few sh making it to the boat for pictures and measuring. I have been shing from Grassy Key area to the Bahia Honda Bridge and seeing a lot of tarpon everywhere. I have been using mostly crabs and pin sh for bait, but if you can get them, mullet work great. I use a pretty heavy action rod and reel spooled with fty pound test braided line, an eighty pound test uorocarbon leader and usually a 7/0 circle hook. Drifting the live bait with the current works best and the more the tide is ushing bait through the bridges the better the shing is. If you have never been to the Florida Keys to sh for tarpon or to just enjoy the tropical atmosphere then let me recommend it to anyone who needs a stress relief. I also have my 20' Key Hopper ats boat for sale if anyone is looking for a great ats boat just contact me for details. Until next report good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.

University of Florida honeybee researcher Jamie Ellis is interested in what happens to bees that encounter chemicals and Varroa mites — but he’s even more interested in how younger bees fare long-term after facing those challenges. Scientists have been trying to explain the bee-killing malady known as Colony Collapse Disorder, which causes honeybees to abandon their hives, become ill and die. Ellis’ lab has been studying how combinations of environmental factors — chemicals, pathogens, natural enemies — affect bees. Since widespread honeybee die-offs began to be reported around the U.S. in 2006, researchers have been working to pin down a cause. Bee pollination is critical for much of the food we eat and some estimates suggest the U.S. bee industry is responsible for pollinating as much as $15 billion worth of crops every year. In the Ellis lab’s most recent study, outlined recently in the Journal of Insect Physiology, researchers reared honey bees from young larvae to the pupal stage. The UF researchers then exposed the immature bees to a variety of chemicals used in agriculture and beekeeping, including two fungicides, two herbicides and ve insecticides. They also exposed them to Varroa mites, which weaken bee colonies. During the experiment, a control group of bees wasn’t exposed to anything, others were exposed only to the chemicals, or only to mites, and some of the bees were exposed to a combination of chemicals and mites. The researchers gauged the effects on larvae by analyzing the activity of about 50 genes associated with stress, immune response and bee development. Ellis, an assistant professor of entomology in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, stressed that the scientists were only able to screen for expression in some — but not all — genes. They had expected that exposing the bees to the combination of mites and chemicals might produce a more pronounced negative impact, but they didn’t nd any. But their results did suggest, among other things, that two common fungicides — chemicals used to protect crops from fungal infections — apparently have more in uence on bees than previously believed. By examining the selected genes, researchers found the fungicides had pronounced effects on the larvae, although they are generally considered non-toxic to bees. “The data suggest that fungicides are not innocuous to bees,” he said. Ellis’ next study will go much further, with scientists preparing to raise the bees from larvae to adulthood, labeling and following each individual bee. “In most studies, investigators treat a eld with a product, put bee colonies adjacent to the eld and then sample whole colony strength after pesticide exposure. At the end of the day, all you are able to say is ‘this colony is responding in this way to the eld treatment.’ You don’t know why it’s responding in that way. When we begin to label bees, it will permit us to investigate an area that has yet to be studied. We’ll be able to follow individual bees throughout their entire lives, thus allowing us to determine long-term impacts of pesticides on bees.” Besides Ellis, the research team members included former UF postdoctoral research fellow Aleš Gregorc; Michael Scharf, a former UF entomologist and now the O. Wayne Rollins/Orkin Endowed Chair in Urban Entomology at Purdue University, and Jay D. Evans, research entomologist with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. The study was funded by the National Honey Board, the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Farm Theft deterrent practices: 1) Don’t keep excess fuel in tanks when pumps are not being used. 2) Keep gates and fuel tanks locked. 3) Do not to set fuel pumps or tanks in areas which are in close proximity of public access/ gates or where they can be seen from the roadway. 4) Don’t store excess chemicals on the farm, try to only order what is needed on a daily basis and reorder as necessary. 5) Educate employees to record tag number of suspicious vehicles on property. 6) Set up video cameras or game camera’s on chemical sheds, fuel storage areas and workshops, etc. 7) Measure and record fuel tank levels/ amounts before/after fuel deliveries. It’s just good business practices to con rm delivery amounts. 8) Contact Law Enforcement on all suspicious incidents, no matter how small. It helps us develop intelligence needed to apprehend the criminal. 9) Develop an “owner applied number” system for your assets over a certain dollar value (ex: engrave or stamp the # on equipment with a value of $300, or whatever value you choose). 10) Take photos of your equipment with a certain dollar value (evidence for law enforcement to help recover and return stolen goods to the rightful owner). 11) Conduct Ag meetings with local law enforcement periodically monthly, quarterly.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Red-headed Woodpecker is a strikingly tri-colored bird that is found in deciduous woodlands in the eastern United States. These birds are considered “near-threatened” because of the decline in their population over much of their breeding range. They are a partially migratory woodpecker with a somewhat patchy distribution, but they are occasionally reported living and breeding in inland Florida. The bright red hood that covers the entire head and neck of the adult Red-headed Woodpecker makes it easy to identify at rest or in ight. Adults have a black back, tail and wings with white underparts and white secondary wing feathers. Juveniles have a gray-brown head and black bars on white secondary feathers. Immature birds will have some red in the head. Their call is a loud “tchur-tchur”. Red-headed Woodpeckers nest in dead trees or dead branches, preferring well-weathered snags in pastures and open woods, as well as parks and open urban and rural habitats. These birds will move into areas where land has been recently burned or cleared. They will attack other birds to keep them out of their territory and are known to remove the eggs of other species from nests and nest boxes. Red-headed Woodpeckers will store food and is the only woodpecker species known to cover stored food with wood or bark. Insects and seeds are hidden in cracks in wood, under bark, in fence posts and under roof shingles. They have a habit of perching on a branch, “hawking” for insects which they catch in ight or on roadways. These birds will occasionally visit bird feeders. Nesting occurs annually from May to September where they normally raise one brood. The nesting cavity located ve to 80 feet above ground takes six to 17 days to excavate. Both parents incubate the four to seven white eggs, which hatch in 12 to 14 days. The young stay in the cavity, depending on their parents for food, until they edge at about 25 days of age.

Margaret England Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 7.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.53/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.70/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices Sunday were 27.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 33.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 15.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “With Memorial Day a week away, it’s time to put to bed an old myth that gasoline prices rise ahead of a major holiday,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Average gasoline prices will likely continue to decline in the days ahead of Memorial Day, but folks will still say come next year that prices went up over the weekend this year. It’s a sign of how sensitive motorists become to gasoline prices around the holidays, nothing more, and most of the time, the myth isn’t true. This year will be one of those yearsunless you’re on the West Coast, prices have been slowly coming down,” DeHaan said.

Before the FLW Tour on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard began this w eek, National Guard pro Scott Martin of Clewiston, Fla., dedicated his efforts to his wife, who has been a vital part of his support over the course of his career. Martin, the reigning Forrest Wood Cup champion, led the rst three days of the event and on Sunday he got to dedicate a victory to her, as well. A t the end of the day, Martin's ve bass worth 13 pounds, 7 ounces gave him a total four-day weight of 66 pounds, 6 ounces just 3 ounces heavier than second place as well as a championship trophy and $126,000. The win boosted Martin's career winnings past the $2 million mark. Martin's teammate, National Guard pro Justin Lucas of Guntersville, Ala., narrowly missed earning his rst Tour win and posted a total weight of 66 pounds, 3 ounces to claim second place. Lucas won $34,276 for his efforts. "Every win is just so special, but this one here is unbelievable," said Martin, who now has ve Tour-level victories. "I dedicated it to my wife earlier in the week before practice started and was able to pull it off. Usually when you say you're going to do something like that you kind of jinx y ourself, so this is one of the most proud (wins) I've ever had." Although he led the entire tournament, Martin's lead shrank more and more each day. On Sunday Martin admitted he didn't think he was going to win the tournament. "I pretty much said I wasn't going to win," Martin said. "I thought somebody was going to bring in a 17or 18-pound bag and edge me out. But God is good. "When I got in and saw some of the weights starting to hit the scale I thought, Man, I might have a shot at this thing.'" Martin said he shed excruciatingly slowly and picked apart grass beds with a Bruiser Baits paddle tail worm. He said he wouldn't catch a sh for 20 minutes and then he would catch one that w ould allow him to replace his smallest sh in his limit and increase his weight by 4 or 5 ounces. Then he would repeat the process. "You feel like a caged animal," Martin said. "Because you're sitting in this one little spot ipping into every little hole you can. "I just stayed con dent out there," Martin said. "(David) Dudley kind of touched on it a little bit. It's not the lures you throw. A lot of times it's not even the exact spot you're shing. It's con dence that wins tournaments, and I had a lot of it this week. It really paid off bigtime. The winning lure really was con dence." The remaining top 10 pros nished the tournament in: 3rd: Castrol pro David Dudley, Lynchburg, Va., 20 bass, 65-7, $28,943 4th: M&Ms pro Jim Moynagh, Carver, Minn., 20 bass, 64-7, $24,610 5th: Colby Schrumpf, Highland, Ill., 20 bass, 63-12, $19,276 6th: Chevy pro Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., 20 bass, 62-8, $16,376 7th: Clark Wendlandt, Leander, Texas, 20 bass, 61-11, $15,410 8th: Kellogg's Frosted Flakes pro Dave Lefebre, Erie, Pa., 20 bass, 61-10, $14,443 9th: Clifford Pirch, Payson, Ariz., 20 bass, 6110, $13,476 10th: EverStart pro Ron Shuf eld, Bismarck, Ark., 20 bass, 61-4, $12,510 Overall there were 50 bass weighing 141 pounds, 4 ounces caught by pros Sunday. The catch included 10 ve-bass limits. Chris Dillow of Waynesboro, Va., won the co-angler division and $20,000 Saturday with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 47 pounds, 3 ounces followed by Greg Knick of Ansonia, Ohio, in second place with 15 bass weighing 46-11 worth $7,238. In FLW Tour Major tournaments, pros and co-anglers are competing for valuable points that could help them qualify for the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart, the world championship of bass shing. The top 35 pro and co-anglers in the point standings from the six FLW Tour Major tournaments will qualify. The Tour stop on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard was hosted by National Harbor and Prince George's County, Maryland, and was the fth of 10 Walmart FLW Tour tournaments of the 2012 season.

They Gave Their Todays for Our TomorrowsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThe Civil War ended in 1865. But it wasn’t until 1997 that the last shot of that war was red. In 1997, two young boys playing around with their new metal detector came across a live shell that dated back to the Civil War. The police came and exploded the shell, in many ways making it the last shell red from the Civil War. It’s pretty amazing that years after the end of a war, its weapons could still be alive and capable of destruction. Yet that seems to be the nature of war: its effects linger on in the lives of people and nations for many generations. Most of us can recall the World War II photo of ve Marines raising an American ag on the island of Iwo Jima. The man in the center of the photo was John Bradley. Although Bradley won the Navy Cross for saving a fellow soldier’s life, he preferred not to talk about the war and refused to accept any hero worship that others tried to force on him. One of the few comments Bradley ever made about the war, he made to his young son in response to a remark about heroism: “The real heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who didn’t come back.” This weekend, we honor those men and women who didn’t come back. The ones who, in President Abraham Lincoln’s words in the Gettysburg Address, “gave the last, full measure of devotion.” When we re ect on the honor and heroism of our soldiers, we are confronted with the sacri ces they made, as well as our response to those sacri ces. The whole concept of anyone making sacrices for us, much less dying for us, sometimes makes us uneasy. Confronting their heroism forces us to stop and examine our own lives. Why did they do what they did? What cause is worth dying for? Would we be willing to do the same? Celebrities are people who make news. Heroes are people who make history. The qualities of heroism are eternal--self-sacri ce, courage, honor, duty. A man who served in the Navy during World War II shared that one night he was running his transport across the Atlantic when he noticed the white trail of a torpedo coming toward him. His ship was lled with hundreds of soldiers, and the potential loss of life would have been devastating. Nearby, a smaller ship had also seen the torpedo coming. The captain of the smaller vessel maneuvered his ship between the transport and the torpedo. The explosion destroyed his ship, killing all those on board. The man who told this story ended it by saying, “The skipper of that other ship was my best friend.” Slowly, he remarked, “You know, there is a verse in the Bible which has special meaning for me now. It is this: Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” What kind of love would give itself up for another? What kind of love would be willing to die for you and me? It’s the love that Jesus demonstrated to show us how much we mean to God. It’s the love we celebrate today in the example of those soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. In India there is a cemetery where the bodies of American soldiers are buried. Over the entrance to the cemetery are these words: “Tell Them We Gave Our Todays for Their Tomorrows.” Let’s never forget that our tomorrows were bought with a price. Someone had to pay with their lives, so that we might be free today. There is no way we can suf ciently say, “Thank you.” In the revised words of the hymn, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, “As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free, God’s truth is marching on. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Highway 721 west of Lake Okeechobee on the Brighton Seminole Indian ReservationMust be 18years old to play Bingo.

NFL players Abe Elam of the Dallas Cowboys, Anquan Boldin of the Baltimore Ravens, and the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Fred Taylor will headline the Youth Recreation Association’s annual NFL weekend gala June 14-16. The proceeds from the event will bene t the non-pro t Youth Recreation Association of Palm Beach County and its athletic programming across the county. The relationship that Youth Recreation Association has with NFL stars, past and present, is legendary and nearly 50 years in the making. Youth Recreation Association Athletic Director and Founder Dan Calloway began the organization in 1965 while working with the Riviera Beach parks department, meeting young athletes who had the skills and drive to go all the way, but no money to help make it possible. Mr. Calloway began a fundraising effort that helped Lemar Parrish make it to Lincoln University, for example, and Anthony Carter to University of Michigan. Now, Calloway works with his former recruits to help others. Mr. Calloway said, “Athletes in the past should have done more for the kids in their community as it relates to teaching the young kids respect and the fundamentals of life as well as self discipline as a means of helping produce productive citizens.” A star-studded football camp for young players aged 8 to 18, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 14 at Cardinal Newman High School’s football eld.

school and high school. “In year three, I think it’s steadily growing,” said Holmes, who will be entering his third season as a wide receiver for the New York Jets and his seventh overall in the NFL. “It’s a wonderful thing to see the number of kids increasing every year and the families showing their support for their kids in the Fred Taylor/Santonio Holmes Glades A ll-Star Football Camp. It’s a tremendous feeling to know that these kids just want to be like us and I’m thankful we can give them this opportunity.” Taylor, who retired from the NFL last year after playing 13 seasons at running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New England Patriots, echoed Holmes’s assessment of their morning camp. “We want to do whatever we can to give back,” Taylor said. “All of the kids in our community here are special. It’s not about us putting a name on this camp; it’s all about them. We just want to keep growing and help motivate our kids to stay off the streets and out of trouble. We want to keep making them feel special.” Taylor took the time to talk to the campers, who all ranged from 6-18 years old. “It makes my heart feel good to see you young kids out here running around and having a good time,” Taylor said. “That’s what it’s all about. When I was your age, I didn’t have an opportunity to play with other kids in the community. I had to play in my backyard, which wasn’t a bad thing.” Taylor also touched on the importance of taking a stand against bullying and violence – two topics that representatives from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce talked about as well. “Do not bully each other,” Taylor said. “If you see somebody bullying someone else, do not let it go on. Bullying is bad. If you want to go on and be where me and Santonio are at, or where the Glades Central players are at, then you need to stay out of trouble. Always have fun and have a good time. Be friends to each other. Carry yourself in a polite manner. Don’t curse. Say yes sir, yes ma’am, no sir and no ma’am. Be nice to and respect all of your elders because if you do, they’ll look out for you.” Holmes spoke directly to the youth campers as well. “We didn’t have this opportunity like you have now,” said Holmes, who has been playing football since he was six years old. “We had to get everything on our own. You are given this opportunity to learn how to be teammates and be friends with each other. This is where it all starts for you all.” Holmes added that while he and Taylor have played for NFL teams over the years, the real team for them is at their camp in Belle Glade with the youth. “With the generation of kids, myself and Freddy, we’re going to try to take as much blame for you guys as we can from this point on,” Holmes said. “We want to continue having this camp from you all. We want you to keep good grades and stay out of trouble. We want you to have as much fun as you can for the rest of your lives.” Marcia Bahia, the PBSO Violent Crimes Division’s gang prevention coordinator, added some encouraging words to the youngsters. “No matter what people say, you are all special and important,” Bahia said. “We took our time to be with you. Now, since you are special and important, you are responsible for making the right choices in your lives. Despite the struggles that we go through in life and our backgrounds, you still have a choice in the end. You can go the right way or the wrong way. We all have the power to choose the right path.” Taylor encouraged everyone to love and support each other out regardless of how tough circumstances may be. “Take care of each other,” Taylor said. “We got to lift and build each other up more. Let’s try to stay positive and stay focused. You have a whole lot of people pulling for you to be successful. Believe in yourselves as we continue to believe in you. Let’s do this again next year. God bless you all.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 24, 2012 CAMPContinued  1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASFred Taylor speaks with the younger campers about the importance of refraining from bullying and violence.

continue learning Tae Kwon Do. The children seem amazed when Master Joe, one of their instructors, takes a moment of class time to demonstrate a technique that they’ve only seen on TV. Graduation day was no different. Students watched as Master Joe (Jose Alcazar) broke w hat appeared to be four boards with his head, and kicked boards held by assistants—two at chest level and one at head level. The event ended w hen parents were given the honor of replacing their child’s white belt that symbolized innocence w ith the yellow belt. Master Joe explains the program as extending beyond simply sports. Children are not taught to ght; they are taught lessons that are to be applied to every aspect of their lives and techniques that can be used to defend themselves if needed, he said. Before each class begins, students bow to the ags, parents, and instructor; this teaches them respect for their country, parents, and authority gures. They recite the student creed, “I am proud to practice the martial art of Tae Kwon Do. I will practice the ve qualities of a grand champion in my daily life: honesty, knowledge, perseverance, attitude, humility. T.K.A: Dedicated to a better future for America.” With limited activities available to school-aged children, the course is a positive one. Many parents have reported great changes in their children since beginning the program three months ago. Nearly every parent interviewed for this article stated that their child has lost weight, is more exible, physically active, and remains excited to be in Tae Kwon Do with their friends. One parent said her children asked to skip the family vacation because they did not want to miss any classes. The role model that the instructors have become to the children was another popular bene t spoken of by parents. Emilio and Michelle Montalvo state that their seven-year-old daughter, Gabriella, takes each of the ve qualities to heart and makes an effort each day to abide by each one. One parent stated that her children argue over whose turn it is to pretend they are Master Joe. Christian Frias said that her daughter was extremely excited when she was able to break a board using her hand. Jesse Garcia’s son has become more obedient and more honest. Olga Flores’ son, Carlos, is more helpful and has a better attitude towards his siblings. The instructors have also notice great personal growth in their students; improved grades, attitudes, and alertness in defending themselves in school and in class are some of the changes noted. When many of the children began the TKD program, they would cry or “tap out” in sparring sessions -now the children wrestle until the whistle blows, signaling the end of the ght. Sparring partners are often mismatched according to size and gender to maximize each student’s opportunity to learn self-defense techniques. Each sparring classes ends with reinforcement to not give up a ght even though an opponent is bigger or older, the argument being that one da y their lives may depend on it and they will have no control over their opponent’s size or age on the street. TKA has been in business for 14 years but recently decided to come to Belle Glade after many parents spoke to the instructors about the great need an outlet for the children in the Glades. The parents explained that the children’s onl y option was staying home with nothing to do and that they wanted something that offered physical activity and motivation. The excitement in the eyes of the children seemed to reinforce that. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 24, 2012 Guidance Counselors, for a very successful Career Week.

Harry S. Truman is President of the United States. Fuller Warren is the Governor of Florida, and the rst state sales tax is passed during his administration. Most families do not own television sets, but AM radio stations are broadcasting hits by Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and Elvis Presley. A gallon of gas costs 20 cents, and you can buy a 6-pack of Coca Cola at the supermarket for 37 cents. It is during this year that Rosenwald Elementary School is built in South Bay to provide a facility for educating the children of the hardworking farm laborers of the far western reaches of Palm Beach County. Fast-forward to 2012. In 61 years many things have changed dramatically, but Rosenwald is still a community school focused on providing the best possible education for the children of South Bay. Many of those children have heard their parents and grandparents talk about when they themselves walked the school’s open corridors and sat in the same classrooms. Those parents and grandparents also emphasize an important lesson they were taught—that you can do almost anything you want to do in life if you make the most of your educational opportunities. Rosenwald’s original buildings are still in use, although some have been repurposed; and newer buildings have been added to the campus over the years. Thanks to an outpouring of support from the entire Glades community, however, construction will begin this fall on a new school. The Rosenwald family, and all the residents of South Bay, are eagerly looking forward to the day when they will be able to move into their modern, state-ofthe-art, enclosed school facility. In order to honor the accomplishments of the past 6 decades and celebrate the bright hope of the future, the Rosenwald staff and students will be presenting a Fabulous Fifties June Jubilee program at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 1. The program will feature student performances by each grade level; recognition of former administrators, staff members, and students; and a display of students’ math, language arts, and science projects. The community is cordially invited to come and share in the festivities to mark this historic event on the Glades’ oldest existing school campus.Pahokee Elementary SchoolSummer Camp is open to community youth in grades K-5.

Sell it sooner in the classifieds Shop here first! The classified ads All women who are thinking about getting pregnant in the next 3-4 months should have a sit-down session with their healthcare provider for pre-conceptual counseling. Counseling and evaluation of important issues and risk factors pertinent to all women who want to get pregnant, including special medical, surgical, gynecologic, obstetrical, and age related history, are provided. Planning a pregnancy gives you and your baby a healthy start. All women of child-bearing years should be prescreened for general health and possible risk factors before attempting to become pregnant. With a small amount of pre-pregnancy planning, many potential complications in pregnancy can be avoided. Women should not smoke, or should quit smoking prior to conception. Women should avoid alcohol and drugs because they can cause birth defects in a fetus. Women should also take Folic Acid (400mg) once a day for about three months prior to getting pregnant. Folic acid has been shown to reduce the development of defects of the spine such as spina bi da and anencephaly. Eating dark green vegetables and beans are also good sources of essential vitamins needed for a healthy pregnancy. Even though the paternal effects of alcohol, smoking and drugs have not been extensively studied in men, the most popular belief is that men play a key role in the health of a developing fetus. Males and females should ask themselves: "Am I ready to be a parent? Can I emotionally, physically, psychologically and economically provide for another human being?" Meeting with a healthcare provider prior to pregnancy allows for screening of risk factors, lifestyle modi cations, and immunization. Are You Ready to Get Pregnant? remarks. "It's a sadness for the loss for the people of the Glades," she said. "Being sel sh, it's a great loss for the hospital, too." If you speak to people in Belle Glade, they'll say Dr. Grear helped to raise an entire community. In her outreach work throughout the Glades, it was almost impossible for the former principal not to be recognized by most people she encountered. She had been their educator, their friend, their neighbor and their counselor. In the case of William Grear, her son, Dr. Grear was an enormous in uence. One week after her death, William was still nding it dif cult to cope with the loss of his mother. He talked about her unrelenting desire to help her community that had she lived anywhere else she would have done the same. "She believed in God, her church, her family, her school and her community," said William. Part of the reason her death was so surprising is because no one outside of her immediate family knew about her condition. Once her health began to deteriorate she resolved that she did not want anyone else to know. She preferred her memory to be that of the person everyone knew, than someone who had been made frail due to disease. When Glades Central High School announced to its students that the former principal had passed away, Assistant Principal Angela Moore felt that the students didn't understand the full signi cance of the news. Maybe when they went home that day, their parents would let them know just who Dr. Grear was. The fact that the death came on the eve of graduation this week made the news more dif cult, said Ms. Moore. "She's been to every one of our graduations," said Ms. Moore. "She loved being a Raider." Ms. Moore was shocked herself when she found out. Ms. Moore still remembers her interview with Dr. Grear as a 23-year-old teacher applicant. After the sit-down session, Dr. Grear gave her advice she still holds onto today. "I expect learning to take place every day," Dr. Grear told her. The effect she had on giving lasting advice was most evident in her relationship with her own kids. In an effort to follow in his parent's footsteps Dr. Grear's husband William was Belle Glade's rst black city commissioner the younger Grear also became a city commissioner, but promised he would never sacri ce his ideals. When he was elected, his mother turned to him and said, "I hope to see a man I can respect, than a politician that I don't." He re ects on the advice. "That's probably why I lost," he said, referring to his recent re-election bid loss. "It would have been easy for me to be a politician that the other elected of cials wanted me to be, but I couldn't have brought that man home to my mom." A wake will be held at Glades Central High School today from 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral will follow on Saturday.

The classified ads All women who are thinking about getting pregnant in the next 3-4 months should have a sit-down session with their healthcare provider for pre-conceptual counseling. Counseling and evaluation of important issues and risk factors pertinent to all women who want to get pregnant, including special medical, surgical, gynecologic, obstetrical, and age related history, are provided. Planning a pregnancy gives you and your baby a healthy start. All women of child-bearing years should be prescreened for general health and possible risk factors before attempting to become pregnant. With a small amount of pre-pregnancy planning, many potential complications in pregnancy can be avoided. Women should not smoke, or should quit smoking prior to conception. Women should avoid alcohol and drugs because they can cause birth defects in a fetus. Women should also take Folic Acid (400mg) once a day for about three months prior to getting pregnant. Folic acid has been shown to reduce the development of defects of the spine such as spina bi da and anencephaly. Eating dark green vegetables and beans are also good sources of essential vitamins needed for a healthy pregnancy. Even though the paternal effects of alcohol, smoking and drugs have not been extensively studied in men, the most popular belief is that men play a key role in the health of a developing fetus. Males and females should ask themselves: "Am I ready to be a parent? Can I emotionally, physically, psychologically and economically provide for another human being?" Meeting with a healthcare provider prior to pregnancy allows for screening of risk factors, lifestyle modi cations, and immunization. Are You Ready to Get Pregnant? remarks. "It's a sadness for the loss for the people of the Glades," she said. "Being sel sh, it's a great loss for the hospital, too." If you speak to people in Belle Glade, they'll say Dr. Grear helped to raise an entire community. In her outreach work throughout the Glades, it was almost impossible for the former principal not to be recognized by most people she encountered. She had been their educator, their friend, their neighbor and their counselor. In the case of William Grear, her son, Dr. Grear was an enormous in uence. One week after her death, William was still nding it dif cult to cope with the loss of his mother. He talked about her unrelenting desire to help her community that had she lived anywhere else she would have done the same. "She believed in God, her church, her family, her school and her community," said William. Part of the reason her death was so surprising is because no one outside of her immediate family knew about her condition. Once her health began to deteriorate she resolved that she did not want anyone else to know. She preferred her memory to be that of the person everyone knew, than someone who had been made frail due to disease. When Glades Central High School announced to its students that the former principal had passed away, Assistant Principal Angela Moore felt that the students didn't understand the full signi cance of the news. Maybe when they went home that day, their parents would let them know just who Dr. Grear was. The fact that the death came on the eve of graduation this week made the news more dif cult, said Ms. Moore. "She's been to every one of our graduations," said Ms. Moore. "She loved being a Raider." Ms. Moore was shocked herself when she found out. Ms. Moore still remembers her interview with Dr. Grear as a 23-year-old teacher applicant. After the sit-down session, Dr. Grear gave her advice she still holds onto today. "I expect learning to take place every day," Dr. Grear told her. The effect she had on giving lasting advice was most evident in her relationship with her own kids. In an effort to follow in his parent's footsteps Dr. Grear's husband William was Belle Glade's rst black city commissioner the younger Grear also became a city commissioner, but promised he would never sacri ce his ideals. When he was elected, his mother turned to him and said, "I hope to see a man I can respect, than a politician that I don't." He re ects on the advice. "That's probably why I lost," he said, referring to his recent re-election bid loss. "It would have been easy for me to be a politician that the other elected of cials wanted me to be, but I couldn't have brought that man home to my mom." A wake will be held at Glades Central High School today from 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral will follow on Saturday.
